The following dispatch from Pitts burg, Penn., dated Sept. 27th brings Into prominence a former resident of Albany and Lebanon, who left here ; about six weeks ago. "Dr. W. C Ne gus, of Blnghamton, N. Y., came to Homestead, thiB county, about ten days ago and recovered his 7-year old son from C. C. Long. The doctor told a story that the lad was a son of a wealthy Portland, Or., man and had been kidnapped six years ago. He (Negus) was a government detective and had lecaptured the boy after a long search and would get 5,000 for his trouble. Long has got tired of the ' unpleasant notoriety it gave him and now tells his side of the case. Long says that some years ago, while living at Riehburg, N. Y., he employed Mrs. Negus to care for his parents, who were very old. She brought her boy along, haying been divorced from the doctor. Long and the woman fell in love and were married. After the death of the elder Mrs. Long they removed to this county. Last March Long's wife died, and when Dr. Negus heard of it he be came anxious to have his toy back so he came on to Homestead, saw Long, and without any difficulty recovered the little fellow, and Long is at a loss to undsrstand the father's motive for telling of the abduction case." -- Dent, ocrat.
