Crime News

Uniontown- John Scott, of Plain City, O., came here with a warrant to-day for the arrest of John Calvin Bussey, Jr., of Holmes county, Ohio, whom he charges with bigamy. He alleges that Bussey was employed to give music lessons to his daughter, Miss Lizzie Scott, a beautiful girl of 19, and that he represented himself as a single man, but on hearing Bussey had a wife and three children the father dismissed him. Bussey then planned an elopement and the two were traced to this county, where he found them. Bussey is now in jail. They are both well connected in Ohio.
