**The Herald Dispatch - Thursday - 5/14/1925 Left Huntington Little Town, Returns to Find It Great, Thriving City Julius Dillon, 74, Returns For First Time Since Departure 41 Years Ago Recalls Robbery of Old Bank by James' Bandits "Slab Town" Only Thing Beyond C. & O. Tracks When He Moved Away "Huntington has grown from a little country town to a great city, where a stranger can easily get lost." Those were the words of Julius Dillon, 74 years old, when he arrived in Huntington, his birth place, from Richwood, Nicholas county, yesterday, for his first visit to the city in 41 years. He came to visit the home of his brother, John R. Dillon, 1036 Twenty-second street,who is 10 years his junior. It was a happy reunion between the two brothers. The visitor, one of Huntington's earliest settlers, was amazed, to say the least, by the changes that had been wrought since he left the town of his birth on March 4, 1884, to move with his family to Nicholas county. He has resided in Nicholas county, engaged in farming, since bidding Huntington goodbye, not once having been outside of the county. "A wonderful change surely has taken place here," Mr. Dillon said on being interviewed by a representative of The Herald Dispatch. "The expansion and development of the city has been most remarkable. "There wasn't a great deal here when I last saw the town. There was nothing at all south of the railroad tracks outside of a little batch of horses located at what is now Eighth avenue and Sixteenth street. The little settlement there was called 'Slab Town." Recalls Bank Robbery Mr. Dillon was born January 3, 1851, just back of where the old Spring Hill cemetery was first established. His father John L. Dillon, was born January 8, 1820, in Franklin County, Virginia, but he came to Cabell county with his father in 1830 and resided here continually from that date until his death, in 1895. The visitor recalled vividly the robbery of the old Huntington bank by the James gang, in 1875, and was able to describe in detail the trial of one of the alleged bank robbers, held in the spring of the following year, at the court house in Barboursville, which was then the county seat, and all events leading up to it. "The robbery gave the old town a lot of excitement, and it was the main thing folks talked about for months and months afterwards" Mr. Dillon remembered. "The whole countryside was up in arms, and trying to capture the robbers." He could not exactly remember the name given by the robber captured and tried at Barboursville, but, he declared it was the common belief and impression of the town folk that the prisoner had used a ficticious name, and that he was really Clell Miller. "The people all thought that he was Clell Miller," he related, "because a man by thatname who was the son of old Bill Miller, had left here along towards the latter years of thewar, and was never afterwards seen or heard of. A number of people who had knownMiller said that the prisoner looked just like him, I remember. "We all understood at the time, and the story was confirmed by statements afterwards, from the one robber captured, that there were four in the gang, and that one was a James boy. They planned the robbery at a blacksmith shop which stood on Eleventh street, andone of the men stayed there and held four horses, while the others went to the bank andstore. Two of the men went in the bank and made Jim Oney, who was assistant cashieropen the vault and load the money into bags." Rode Into Kentucky "They rode out the Eighth street road and up McCoy hill, which is now called Ritter's Hill, and crossed Twelve Pole at the Shoals, and went into Kentucky. They parted atC rackers Neck, two of them going one way and the other two, the other way. From there a big posse held one of the pair in a cornfield for two days and one of the robbers left his horse behind. It was an iron grey mare and it was brought back to Huntington. I remember that a man by the name of Brady had the horse at Barboursville for a long time afterwards. "One of the robbers was later caught down in Tennessee where he was found with a large roll of money on his person, and he was brought back here and taken to Barboursville for trial." Congratulates Oney "He was convicted and sentenced to 30 years in the penitentiary, and I remember just as well as if it had only occurred yesterday, how the man got up from his chair, after sentence had been passed, and walked across the court room to where Jim Oney was sitting. He grabbed Oney by the hand, and said to him: 'You were the only man who could identify me in the case, and who knew the details, and I want to congratulate you for telling the truth. You told it just as it happened.' "This man was a pretty built man, weighing about 170 pounds, and somewhat of an athlete. I remember of hearing the jailer tell how he would mark a white chalk line in one end of the jail, and another 12 feet away, and then stand still and jump from one to the other. "Six men guarded him all the time and one of the guards told me, he said to him, 'If you'll give me back my two revolvers, and let me walk 20 steps away from you, I'll guarantee you I can get away from all six of you.'" Mr. Dillon has a wife and three children living, two of the children living at home at Richwood, and the other, a son, Earl E. Dillon, resides in Washington, District of Columbia, USA. In addition to his brother, he had a sister, Mrs. Mary Blankenship, living on Four Pole, not far from Huntington. He said he had not seen his sister since February, 1872, stating that he intends to goto her home for a visit in the next day or two. **104A. http://www.users.ezwv.com/~ldillon/, Rusty Dillon @[email protected] <><><><><><>
