Said to Have Enlarged on Con?
fession in Talk to Counsel and
FOSS FOR COMMUTATION?
Minister, After Telling Girl He
Had Given Her Medicine, Went
to Home of Fiancee?To
Appear in Court
Poeton, Jan T.?'What punlehment
nl'.l probably be meted out to the Rev.
("?"arenco V. T. Richeson, who has con?
fessed the murder of his former swecl
beiirt. Miss Avis Llnn.-H, "?vas the com?
pelling question to-day in the thoughts
of all who haw followed th.? various
fentures of the sensational ras?'.
From a source r'.os.- to <*.overn?>r Foss
the st?terne?*t was ma?!?' to-day that his
attitude would probably be In favor O.
commut?t ion of sentenc*.
Pulpit and press d?*;ilt with the confes?
sion from vinous points of view to-day,
the former seeking: to point a moral,
while th<? latter filled in BOtne links of
?fvideiice hitherto missing, or at least
hid?len fr??m public knowledge.
Richeson's confession, as made public
yesterday, was bare of ?.?'tails. It is un?
derstood, however, that he enla'*g?-il on
It In conversation, and possibly in writ?
ing, to his counsel, and that the Diatfict
Attorney is now in possession of nioet
of the Information which has come to
the defence. While n?> person Can be
quoted as responsible for it. the state?
ment is made ?>n high authority that
Rkheson's amplified t*onfo?ion to his
counsel was on the following lines:
After purchasing a quantity of cyan?
ide of potassium from William Hahn, a
Newton Centre druggist, on C*Ctober 10,
the minister took the poison to his rooms
In Cambridge. A ? w days later he
borrowed front Mrs Frank H. ?'arter, in
"a hose home he was a lodger, an earthen?
ware mixing bowl, in which "to make
some book paste."
Richeaon Warns Landlady.
Returning the bowl to Mrs. Carter an
hour or two later, he warned her to be
sure and wash it out thoroughly, sav?
ing. "I have been mixing poison in J'."
It was in this bowl ami at this time, :t
is said, that the mint-tee by mixing the
cyanide of potassium with flour and
water made the capsule which ulti?
mately caused Miss Linnell's death.
This was on Thursday. October 12.
On Saturday. October 14, Richeaon met
his one-time flanc?*t-, who ?till believ?*!
herself his Intended wile, in front of the
Hotel To'iraine by apr??">intmr-nt. Fo'

for a short time and then went into a

on a secluded bench in this park, after
the girl had again told him of her worry
over her physical <-onditi<?n, saying she
f-are?! it was becoming apparent t?> ;?? r
friends, and had once more entreated
him to procure nom? remedy f??r h?r,
that the minister is said to have b?nde?!
the girl the capsule, ?leclarlng it was a
medicine which would certainly act In
the manner desired. He directed h?-r a*
to th*- mann'-r of taking It, and then 'he

Adrian IT. Joline, of this ? ity, mad?? pub?
lic a letter from Pr. Wilson, in which
| the Iienioerati. aspiran I told what he
thought <?f the Peerless One."
The letter to Mr. .Inline was short and
ronclse. It was dated Ap?*il 27, II?1??, at
which tim<? Pr. Wilson w.?s president ?'f
?Princeton, and it told in one terse ?sen*
tence Just bow the present Q^vernor of
New Jersey felt toward Mr. Ufan ;.t
thai time. Th?- l.tt? r follows;
Princeton, N. J? April 29, 1907.
My dear Mr. Joline: Thank you very
much for sending me your address at
Parsons, Kan., before the hoard of di?
rectors of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas
Railway. I have read it with relish and
entire agreement. Would that we could
do something at once dignified and effec?
tive to knock Mr. Bryan once for all into
a cocked hat!
Cordially and sincerely yours.
The halan.'?? of the communication
was purely personal and had no politi?
Mr. Jolina, who is known as a i'levo
land "Democrat, was frank in discussing
the Wilson letter *.vinn ssisa at his
homo yesterday, lie said he fully agreed
with Pr. Wilson's sentiments, so far as
Mr. Bryan was concerned.
How the Letter Got Out.
"About six or eight months ago," lip
said, "1 read a story of Wilson and
?Bryan speakin? from the same platform
over In New Jersey. I was consltlcrahly
amused, and as a. matter of amusement
I showed It to some of my friends gp
Lvlilfiicc of how a man can ettmtmPO his
views. ' ?? c.urs?', ?'ov.rnor Wilson has
a perfect light to change his views if
be seos lit. You know thut since Pr.
Wilton has left PrlaOetOB h,- has been
?aytag that than was no truth in what
hi- tausjbt there for twenty years."
In thi? way, Mr. J?illn? said, the con?
tents of the letter bat anie known,
'???otile persons," he continued, "are u>
in ; to inak?> it api?cur that because Dr.
Wilson opposed my election as a trustee
at Princeton about a year a"nd a half
ago 1 am opposed to him now, but that
Is not so."
Mr. Joline ??aid he cast his first vote
for Horace (?peley for President? and
had voted for every Democrat since then
until I.ryan ran. Then he voted for M< -
Klnley and later voted for Taft. He
said he was for Taft against Wilson,

th?:? city, the former man from the South
and the latter politician from tho West.
The meeting between the three-time
Presidential candidate of the Demo?
cratic party and the radical Repub?
lican who Is seeking the Republican
ncminatlon, was said to be accidental.
No sooner was it known that the radi?
cal politicians of the two parties had
come together than fugues began to
wag and third party talk flow thick and
fast about the hotel corridors. It was
not wholly confined to members of thu
Democratic National Committee, who
were gathering for the meeting to-mor

Ptocreas was slow because of the gen?

arrival, scheduled for 4 p. m , was
awaited with great Impatience, Finally
it was learn?'.! that his train had !.. ?n

toward each oth?*r and shook hands, and
then lost no time In withdrawing a sh. rt
distance from the crowd. They sat down
on a bench and conversed with ovid?*nt
earnestness for several minute?.
"Whst'H licir?g pulled off?" was the
?question the waiting Demo-rats seemed
t.< be asking one another as they w-af??h??d
the two men. This Interrogation In the

tion by telephone, but In the minds of
some there remained a little skepticism.
Tt vas reported that Senator Pa Fol?
lette had gone to the station to meet Mr.
Pryan. When ask?d ?bout this report
the Senator said that the meeting was
1 -ir? ly accidental, resulting from the fact
that their trains happened to get in at
I th ? same hour.
'We only t.'lked about the direct 0I081

are ?both deeply interested in the subject,
and Col'ino? ?Bryan agrees with me that
