lull for some time after that I was found that
the childrens tickets had not been bought on
any railroad running out of Toronto Geyer
nasof the opinion that a house had been rented
hero ly l Holmes who It I was supposed came
here with the children Finally the detectives
St Vlncentstreet
dijcorered that the cottage on1
hat been I rented by Holmes
Mr Neudell clerk In tho Kducatlon Depart
ment recosnled HolrneYs photograph as that
of the man to whom he had rented the cottage
andttscaich being made tim bodlcswere found
The cottage Mr Neudell says YB rented from
him bysoine stranger for a few days last fall
There wero no traces of wounds on the bodies
aud the theory of the detectives Is that Holmes
and some one else decoyed tho children Into a
trunk under the pretence of getting them to hide
from each other and inserted gas through a
small hole which has been discovered In the
trunk and which IH neatly covered with a strap
tacked over It The bodies are those of the little
girls No trace of the body of Howard tho
missing elghtj earold boy who disappeared at
Detroit has yet been found
An Inquest will begin on tho bodies tomorrow
Holmes It I said registered here under the
nsraeof HowelL lie may b brought here
When the detectives reached the cellar It
seemed to them that something had disturbed
the cellar floorBnd arming themselves with
forond
shovels they began t dig
A short distance below the surface they came
across tho arm and a portion of the head of ono
of the murdered girls and farther work soon
revealed the bodies of two victims They were
since both nude last October and had lain there in all probability
The bodies of the little ones were burled three
feet below the surface and were In 1 fair state
of preservation I
A nice legal point now presents Itself The
murder having been committed In Canada the
accused must be tried within boundaries but
as Holmes hal pleaded guilty to one charge In
the United States he may Insist on being sen
tenced for that I

rounding the death of Benjamin F Pltzel the
subsequent disappearance of throe of bis five
children and the wanderings of their mother
la search of them following the elusive clue
of Herman Mndgett ala 11 Holmes would
furnish material for a romance more thrilling
than any over penned by tho most Imaginative
novelist The story certainly ha no equal In
American police annals
In July of last year a policy of insurance for
10000 on the life of Benjamin F Pitzel was
Issued by the Fidelity Mutual Life Association
of this city In September the charred body of
1 man was found In the house 1310 Callow
hill Direct In which there had been a
re following an explosion of some chemi
cals The I Callowhlli street house had been
rented by a man giving his name aa I
F Perry and the body found was supposed to
b his Subsequently however a claim was
made on tho Fidelity company for the Insurance
un Pttiels le and It was paid to Jeptha I
howe a 6t Louis lawyer who with Pltrela 13
earold daughter Alice and Holmes came to
this city and fully and positively identified tho
body a that of Pltl
Shortly ater the IDurance had ben paid oM

and stated an investigation which resulted In
the unearthing of fact which Induced the b
leU that the company had been the victim of
one of the boldest conspiracies on record
The ablest detectives In the country were put
on the case and In November Holmes was ar
restul In liojton Mrs Pllzel was arrested In
the same city a day or two later and Lawyer
Howe was taken Into custody In tit Louis

the more terlous one of murder was lon laid
against Holmes who told so many wild stories
t the police that he soon established the repu
r tation of being either the most accomplished
liar of modern times or the most hardened crimI
iM that ever fell Into the hands of the police
The country was scoured for a trace of Pltel
who was believed to have been a party to the
rpniplracy Holmes In one of his stories de
clared that ho and Pltzel had bought a corpse
bulht I
In New York shipped I to the Callowhlli street
home and started the tire after halng
placed on It marks that would conform t those

He persisted that Pltzel was still alive and
would ba produced at the proper time All the
elucs wer carefully worked out however and

pastor of Unity Church had been engaged to
preach In Wllllmintlc yexterdar In order to
spend Saturday night at home he determined
to take Washington express that leaves this
city A 3 A M bound east
Ills wife drove him to the station to meet tho I
train On her way homo Mio had turned Into
Kenyan street when she heard a strange noise
behind her Turning about she saw an animal
heading for her that for a moment she thought
might bo nn escaped buffalo from some Wild
West show His head was lowered and his tall
was In the air
Mr Wallo Is brave but when she saw that It
was a maddened bull that was tearing down
upon her sho whipped her horse Into a gallop
and drove for life Her horse responded to tho
lash and soon the hot beats of tho animal bo
hind Founded fainter and fainter as he was left
In the distance The bull was still between Mm
Waite And home and In her dilemma she called
upon Policeman Nonnan The patrol wagon
was detailed with Policemen Marshal and Pal
mer who were ordered to either secure tho
bull or kill him Mm Waite met them and I
drove on ahead to show them where she had
met tho bull Hut ho had left Kenyrm street
unmolested by this time and she was able to drive homo
The three policemen set out to hunt the bull
down They follouiil his tracks and soon
found him on Albany avenue nipping tho road
sIde grass As the wagon nrared him the bull
10S01 bul
shook his head menotlngly but soon lowered
It and resumed browsliiK His temper for A
light had apparently I gone There wero
several cow In tho pasture adjoining tho road
and tho policemen determined that the bull
should join them Palmer the 100pound
giant of the police force volunteered to do the
work and he approached the bull wltn cooing
bul wln
words He got hold of the rings In the bulls
nose The bull seemed tame but quicker than
n wink began to awing his head and Palmer
went up In the air Palmer held on with his
100 pounds as an anchor Again the bull flour
ished his head and again Palmer described
geometrical figures in the air Then with head
down and tall up snorting and bellowing the
Inortns owlni
bull charged his tormentor who fled
The policemen left him alone after that They
let down the burn t the pasture and took turns
In driving and coaxing till flnallv he
drlvlnl coaxDI tl fnaly was per
suaded to join the cows The policemen re
turned to the station well satisfied It want
till some time afterward that an observing
police Captain remarked that Palmer wore a

THE MOnA CLAIM

celebrated Mora claim can b made by the
Spanish Government and the attorneys for
the claimants have deducted their share
of f45qo500 whih Spftfft ta agreed
to pay at onc Antonio Maximo Mora
and his son will divide among themselves what
Is I left of tho money Of the sum to be paid by
the Spanish Government 40 per cent will b
given to a syndicate In New York which I com
posed of tho attorneys who have been working In
the Interests of the claimants Antonio Mora
of Gonzales Mora Co who is a eon of An
tonio Maximo Mora and the only son of the
family who lives In Chicago said today that
this syndicate had to bo formed In order to
orer
keep track of the attorneys claims since
1803 and that forty per cent which they
receive is payment for their services An agree
mcntlwa made some time RiO between the
elder Mora and his eons as t tho disposal of the
money to b received from tho claim but how
much of It he would receive Mr Mora would
not state
LONDON July 15The Standard will tomor
row publish a despatch from Madrid saying
that the diplomatic exchanges with Washing
ton In the matter of the Mora claim have been
condncted In a trlendly spirit with view to not
Injuring tho cordial relations existing between
Bpam and the Inlted Mates The Washington
Government did not wish to aggravate Spains
troubles In Cuba and at home Spaniards
however regard It W unuenerl Ilnlars
part of the Inlted States to make the
settlement of the Morn claim tho price
of neutrality They hold that tho action
of the Washington Government In acton
matter I tantamount to encouraging the disaf
fected colonists who seek American nationality
to enable them to better play the part of trait
ors to Spain with Impunity
Irlmo Minister Canota del Castillo has In
structed the Duke of Tetunn Minister of For
eign Affairs Sefior Castellanos Minister of the
Colonies and Sefior Uayon Minister of the In
terior to prepare ways and means for tho
payment of the capital nnd Interest Spain
seems to havo grounds for hoping that
the United States will wait until the
Cortes can vote the necessary supplIes
lupplos
which tho Prime Minister undertakes to
ask Immediately upon the meeting of
the new Parliament upn 1R1MI Including the
Cuban budget It is considered likely that the
United State Hill consent to the payment of
the claim In Installments

oclock all returned with the verdict nt 0011
oclock although It was learned afterward
that they had agreed some Hmo before but
wore obliged to delay the verdict
until the Recorder returned from dlnnor
The verdict was reached on the second
ballot the result of the first balloV being eight
for conviction in tho fIrst degree and four for
conviction in the second degree rite prisoner
who does not understand English was perfectly
Impassive as ehe stood facing the jury while tho
verdict was announced and teemed stunned
when tho result was mao known to her
through the Intropreter by direction of
tho Court Sho gave no outward sign
of realizing what the verdict meant and Mrs

< 01
Ilrldge of Sighs accompanied by Prison Guard
Kelly Sentence will b pronounced on Thurs
day next
Tho trial continued yesterday afternoon with
John Klein an amateur detective on the stand
The defence tried to Introduce testimony as to
the character of the house In Chrystle street
where a Maria alleged Cutuldo had drugged
and betrayed her but this was not allowed
Assistant District Attorney Mcintyre called
Maria t the stand and asked her I she knew
Vlncenzo haulo of 113 Mott street She said
sho did not The defence then moved for the
discharge of the defendant on the ground that
premeditation had not been proved This the
Hecorder refused
Lawyer Amos I Evans who was assigned by
Recorder God to defend the Harberl girl at thu
expense of the county and who defended Vln
cono Nino also convicted of murder In the
llrst degree summed up for thu defence He
contended that tho young woman had been re
duced and abused by CiiUUclo who had betrayed
trayed her under promise of marriage He in
sinuated that the prosecution had told tho
Drosecuton
policeman to whom Maria confessed to say
anything he liked but was ordered by tho He
conler to retract his Insinuation
Assistant District Attorney Mcintyre In sum
ming up for the people said ho wished I was
possible on the evidence tn show that lie mur
der was not premeditated as he had the deepest
sympathy for the young woman on trial
Uut however strong the appeal jour feel
Ings pity and sympathy have no relation to the
case at all said ho Iain I constrained to ray
In this case that by the honor of my profession
ana by the oath of my ole no defence has
been Interposed ut all I has nut been said that
this woman committed tho act In Keltdefence
Counsel have nut Interposed the defencn of in
sanity and they do not deny that she killed Ca
tajdo They have nn detente that justifies the
commission of this crlmo Tho juror whit shirks
Ills duty and violates his oath In determining
this case commits perjury and set crs himself
mom his God
The defence in this case such as It Is I was
Invented and manufactured for this occasion
There was no seduction no cajolery nodrugglng
Bed uetlon can only accomplished by the dethroning
throning of reason or by violence and the evi
dence heredooi not show that If you acQuit
this defendant then every woman In tho city
who holds meretricious relations with a man
may when she chooses shoot him down or cut
his throat and then trump up the story of bn
uuctlon and appeal to sympathy Will you en
courage that danger
dont want to hound 1 woman but If you
acquit this woman you might a well abolish
Attorney these courts and obliterate the once of District
Atorney
Mr Mcintyre concluded by saying that If
sympathy was t be extended It must come
from the Ooerror and that ho believed that
Mm Foster the kind friend who had attended
Maria through the trial could secure clemency
if that well possible
Hecorder OofTs charge to the Jury occupied
two hours and tlftcen minutes Ho recited tlio
story of tho crime and told the jury that In his
judgment there was no contradiction or dispute
as to the facts of which the jury wn tn judge

for Dr Platt
She was determined to end her life ai she told
tho Doctor that If sho survived she would kill
herself some way and begged him to let her die
She soon passed away Tho cause of the suicide
Is said to have been n cruel rumor
Her father received a letter from a man who
said ho had seen Miss Elchner and a young
church member In a compromising position la
Miss Elchncre home after Sunday school ono
Sunday She Indignantly denied the report but
the story to preyed on her mind that sliedcter
mined to end her life
TIme funeral was held at Miss Clchncrs home
In New field Sunday afternoon The Rev Mr
Roberts her pastor conducted the services
Following the eorvlics at tho house
the remains were brought down to the
Centre Cemetery In Torrlngton for Interment
There was aver largo crowd gathered at the
cemetery
The members of the Sunday school class to
which tIme girl belonged and other young lady
friends brought a mass of Mowers and the grave
was literally lined with them Mr Robert
read it brief part of the final service anti bite
casket was lowered Into time grave
When tbe casket hid been opened fore final
view of the remains Just beforo lowering them
Into the grave several friends noticed that M Us
Klchners countenance was flushed and lifelike
There was a good deal nf color In the face and
tim hands they said bail felt warm The more
they thought about It the mare they became
convinced that II I she were burled then she
would bo buried alive
As the sexton was about to throw the first
Bpadef of dirt on the cuffln ono of her friend
fpnkeup
protest I Dont you fill the grave yet This
young woman Isnt dead but Ilv Ing
There were probablynthousand persons at the
graresiile and about thin cemetery at this time
and all wero excited The news quickly spread
all over town and a great crowd collected
I pinched her ear said one and the color
came and went
Her hands were warm and moist said an
other
And her cheeks Did you notice they were
pink aa they always used to be Inquired an
other
Dr Hanchett the medical examiner was
hastily summoned The crowd watched him
descend Into the grave and examine the body
Ho pronounced the girl dead Her friends were
still not satisfied and Dr Platt was called He
too pronounced life extinct There were many
who were not ready tn concede this however
and the casket was taken from the grave

Elchner without the knowledge of the other
relatives had obtained pel mission from the
Selectmen to remove tho body and Itwas taken
at it I oclock tn thn lockup The colored people

the Town Hall but after they adjourned the
body of Miss Elchner was removed to the hall
The windows were shaded and Dr Hancbett
railed a council of doctors Des Platt Pratt
Iulver and Hill applied tests The girl was
really dead The reason the physicians nave for
the lifelike appearance was that the corrosive j
sublimate In the poison tended to enllveu the >
red corpuscles in the blood after death J
The warmth of blot body they ascribe to the
ride of two miles In the hearse whose Bias J
