police indicates the errand boy, Willie
Eurlisch, as being the murderer of Drug
Clerk Quentber Wechsung in Otto Doepfner's

Still there aro many who, after seeing the
lad, cannot bring themselves to believe him
capable of such a deed.
He is not a vicious-looking chap. Ob the
contrary hie personal appearance is strongly
in bis favor.
Ho is o great liar without donbt, but many
boys of his age and station in life are just as
bad as far as that goes.
Hardware Morchant Freundllco Rays that

Kurluch is the boy who purchased tbe
hatchet from him on Wednesday loot, the day
before Wechsung was butchered. His friend
Schlessinger, who waa in the store when the
trade waa made, is equally positive that
Eurlisch was the buyer.
The boy stubbornly insists that they aro
Even thoso who do not beliovo that he mur

In view of tbe discovery made by an Even

and that the boy helped her commit the

that the boy may have fallen in love with the

her in any way. I
Krulisch waa seen in tbe Tombs by an
Ensntho Wobxd reporter this morning, who I
asked him jocosely :
"Are vpu ready to confess yot.WilUe?"
He pressed a very serious-looking young
face against tho iron-barred door of his cell,
and responded i
" I have nothing to confess, I did not buy
tbe hatchet I did not murdwr Wechsung.
Ho and I were always the bost of friends. "
He declared that he had never seen any
woman calling on Wechsung at the drug
store, but the dead clerk did receive many
letters, which he burned as soon ae he had
' When did you see him have a letter last?"
asked the reporter.
"Tuesdsy before he was killed. Ho got
one in the first mail that morning and read it
through quick. Then he toro if roughly up
and threw the fragments in tho stove, "
' Did yon over mail any letter for him to
people in this country ?"
"No. All the letters I mailed wero ad.
dressed to Germany, He used to mall some
letters himself, though, and those, I guest,
were for some one here. "
' ' What makes you think so ?"
" Because he would generally write a letter
after receiving one of those he used to burn
and then he would go out and mail it him
self," he conoluded.
Copt. Warts said this morning that his men
were still at work on the case, but nothing
new had transpired. ,
He refused to tell what progress they had
made in tbe search for the blond o woman,

Take Ilia Plaoe.
There is trouble In the Socloiy for tho Pro.
venlion of Cruelty to Animals. In fact
thero has been a regular revolution ou
a small scale, tho result of which
has been tliat young Henry Borgh,
who has boon President of the Bocioty since
the death of his undo n year ego, has Leon
forced to resign his office, and James M.
Brown, of the firm of Brown Brothers, tbe
bankers, hoe been chosen to succeed hhn.
This all took place on Monday night at a
meeting of ihe Board of Managers, but it was
kept secret until to-day.
Of tbo twenty-three members of tbe Board
thirteoa were present. They were : Elbridgo
T. Gorry. Kev. Dr. Morgan Dlx. W. O.
Sohermerhorn, Alfred Wegstaff, N. M. Bock
wltb, Charles Lanier, JaincH M. Brown,
Tarke Godwin, George G. Haven, Horace
nuseeU, Edward A. Hammond, James Grant
NUson and George E. OaWltt, jr.
The trouble has been brewing for somo
months past, and, according to all reports,
originated in a general feeling of dissatiafao
tlon with Ihe management of the aftairs of
the Society by its young President. , ,
The by-laws gate blm absolute authority,
and it is claimed that he has abused tbli
power In many Instances, although mmo of
the members of the Board who wero seen by
the reporter would specify any particular
offense in this regard.
At auy rate they changed this troublesome
by-low at a recent meeting and Mr. Borgh,
being shorn of his power, was given tbe
alternative of acting as a mere appendage to
the Board of Managers or resigning.
His resignation was before the Board on
Monday night It was unanimously ac
canted. and to the election of Mr. Brown
there was not a dissenting vote.
It seems, however, that the ousting of Mr.
Borgh Is by no menus as agreeable to tbe
members of the Bocioty at urge as to tho
Board of Managers, and even among tho
latter there is considerable minority who
support Mr. Borgh, although they do not
seem to have buen present at the meeting in
question. ' -!,-

He seemed to feel keenly the slight which
bad been put upon him by the Board of

during his conversation with the reporter.
' ' I bave bad opposition in the Board of

it grew so strong that I finally resolved to re
sign rather than Insist upon tbe carrying out
of ray policy.
"Thero was an undestanding that nothing
should be said about tho mattor, and now the
story comes out and in suoh a way that it
places me in a very unfortunate position."

many occasions without consulting
them. As a result, this dissatisfac

and while the membors of the Society
favored Mr. Bergh, and hhoned it at a recent
