MlDDI.UTOW.v, X. Y April 4. -Xot since
the evening of Octnlier R, IBO,i, when two
wealthy old men named Olney nnd Ihe
nine-year-old daughter of their house
keeper were found slain near thi city,
have the people of Mlddletown in the heart
of Orange county been so excited over a
criminal case aa they are over whit has
come to be known aa the "cinder car
, When the Olney triple murder took
place there was not a' clue to the murderer,
but eight mouth later he was caught
at I.os Angeles. Xow tiie police and
county authorities have n skull, right
shoulder and right arm of a human being
and half a bushel of human bones. They
do not know the name of the person to
whom these IsKies Is? longed nor do they
linow whether the person died it natural
death or waa murdered, but they are
going to find out if they have to employ
the liest detective skill In the country
The police and the public believed
the cinder car mystery had been solved
when I hoy found two men who accused
each older of having killed their brother
and of having buried the body in a car of
hot cinders. But all this has come to
iiitughl, fiu- to-day Theo Fiirmati,. the
man who waa supposed lo have been
murdered, returned to this city.

fifteen miles from this city, came upon the
hours of a human being but itd ubout two
feet don ii from the top oi ihe car. The
cinders were still red hot olid the greater
url of the skeleton had been Incinerated
The police found that th" car had been
loaded on December So and 'Jl at the
Ontario and Western Knilroud shop in
till city. It had been taken to Wer
HrWkville on January 1 and Uy on the
switch there for a week before the track
hand commenced unloading It.
Tlioy iuqulnsl if any one was missing.
Two days lal er they learned that Theodore
Ktirinan, a nineteen-year-old railroad
fireman, had disappeared. Ho lived with
hi mother, -Mrs. Kllen F.. Furmau, u
fourteen-year-old sister, F.ula, and four
brother F.ugene, 1": Kussell, lit; Joseph,
:, and Webb, SI.
Webb had been ill in bed for two vears
with a lingering disease.
Grant K. Wilson, chief of the Ontario
and Western police, looked np Theodeix
Furman and learned he had not reported
for duty after November It and thai
half a month's wages due him had been
drawn on an order presented bv his
mother. The order was looked up and
compared with Theo' signature and it
was discovered to lie a forgery. Chief
of Police McCoach then talked with mem
bers of the Furman family and all said
Tho had gone West.
On January 11 Eugene Furman was
arrested, taken to police headquarter
and questioned by the District Attorney.
Thomas C. Rogers. He broke down and
said his brother Joseph had killed Theo
in a quarrel and that the IkxIv had been
hidden in the cellar for more than a month
and was then cut in two, placed in bags
and taken to the railroad yard and buried
in the car of cinder. He told where
lay the double bitted axe with which tho
body had been cut in two and said his
mother nnd other brothers knew all about
The notice went to the Furman home.
found the axe and also noted that the
kitchen floor had been scrubbed until it
shone. They also found Theo's switch
key in the cellar.
Then they arrested Joseph Furman.
He refused to talk except to sav he be-
lieved Theo was alive. '1 he next dav
Famene retracted his accusal on a en nt
his brother Joseph, and confersed he did
tho deed himself.
After two days in jail Joseph broke his
silence ami uecmreu r.ugetie had killed
Theo. and the same day hugeue again de
clared Joseph diil the murder.
In the dead of liiidit Kuitene was taken
from the jail. He escorted the detectives
over thn route taken when he said he and
his brother carried the body of 'Iheo to
the cinder rar.
The dav following the law firm of ften
dich Gardner was employed by the
mother to defend the two brothers and
then both retracted all the statements
they had made, liotli-were held for the
Grand Jury, which considered their caes
for a week and then failed to indict them,
It was thought that the failure to indict
wa to give the authorities more time to
work up their case, And every one Im
lleved It would cotne before the next
Grand Jury In May.
In the meantime. Mrs. Kllen P. Furman
was arrested ou a forgery charge for

circumstantial evidence around them.
An expert said the piece of cloth coat
found on the bone matched a pair of

Then Eugene and Joseph Furman said
Theo had not liked to work and had

'Applications of the New York Timtn

Court Judge on the evening of March N,
and the application came on for hearing
on March 39.
lame M. Beck, attorney for Tun Sun.
argued that Tiik Hr.s's version of Capt.
Amundsen's discover was neither in fact
nor colorably a violation of Ihe Timr' al
leged copyright ; that the Twit had acted
prematurely in starting a proceeding
to restrain Tub Sun' from infringing a
copyright not yet obtained, and that there
wuh no reason now for granting an in
junction which would restrain Tiik Sum
Irom printing a story which has ceased
to bo news, On this last point Judge
Lscomtie nased hi denial. After reciting
the hitorv of the action against Thk Sun
Judge I .n combe said:
"As to the merit of the motion various
objections are raised to the granting of
the relief prayed for: some of them are
directed to the form of the complaint,
which, it is contended, in some particulars
states conclusions instead or facts. Any
irregularities of that sort could no doubt
be cured bv amendment to conorm to
the fact. Put there seems to be no good
reason for deciding the question raised
uon tne argument, some oi wntcn go to
the fundamental meritsof the controversy
ou an application for an injunction pen
dente lite. There is no reason toupprehed
that the defendant will hereafter print the
alleged copyrighted narrative or'any part
of it; it has long since ceased to be news.
The important questions in the case
can be best considered at final hearing
the bill is for accounting as well as in
junctionwhen the contracts upon which
complainant's right to copyright will
be before the court. For this reason,
and without expressing any opinion on
any other branch of tho case, the present
application for injunction 1 denied.
The three other application were
denied on the same scorn.

Three women leaned with fascinated
Interest over an object In the vacant
lot back of the Municipal Hall In West
Orange yesterday morning. And around
the bending neck of one hung a net of
Kussian sables; upon the hands of nnother
were a pair of chamois gloves, nnd tho
third held a silver nteah purse in the
one hand, while with the other sho necked
ut the ground with a spade. A llttlo
way from the three moved two others
through the smoke of a lively lire.
Came one who inquired of a section
of the malo population of West Orange
hung along the fence:
What mean these riles? Is some
esoterlo Incantation under way? Are
the Mrcnads returned with tho sprii'R?"
So right away the man who had a copy
of the latest weekly magalno In his
liocket knew that he was talking to a
newspaper reporter, and he said slowly:

how clean the town can be made if every

SUNDAY TRIALS GOOD HERE,
However It May Be Across Ihe River,
Appellate Division Holds.
A ruling contrary to tho recent deci
sion of the Appellate Division in Brooklyn
that a person arraigned before a Magis
trate may not be tried on Sunday was
made yesterday by the Appellate Divi
sion in Manhattan, which holds, as It has
held before, that a person may be legally
tried, convicted and sentenced on Sun
day. The case came liefore the court
on habeas corpus for Stella Burke, who
waa arrested for disorderly conduct
and tried and convicted in the night
court after midnight vone Sunday morn
ing after tho Brooklyn Appellate Division
had ruled that such trials were illegal.
Justice McLaughlin, writing the unani
mous opinion of the court, has said:
"In order to preserve the peace a Mag
istrate has jurisdiction for that purpose
on Sunday. Summary proceedings of
the character of the one under consider
ation have never been regarded as tech
nlchal criminal actions, but rather as
police regulations for tho preservation
of the public peace, and an such to be
disposed of summarily. It would be
an idle formality, if conviction was called
for, to bring a guilty person to the bar
on a subsequent occuaion to commit or
sentence. The Legislature having pro
vided that Magistrates' courts be open
on Sunday their right to dispose of cases
properly presented necessarily follows,"
