A second confession that he killed eight-year-old
Albert Kraft last Wednesday
night was made today by Victor E.
Kslielinan, a boarder nt the Inasmuch
Mission, 1011 Locust street, who is being
held without ball for the murder at
City Hall. This confession was made to
George Long, superintendent of the mis
sion. Captain of Detectives Cameron said
after Long concluded his talk with Eshel
man that but ono point remained to be
cleared up. Attaches of the mission
ny that Kshelman reached there the
night of the murder about 6:15 o'clock.
The detectives think they are mistaken
about the time.
They also say Eshelman took supper
at the mission. In his confession to
Long today Eshelman says he went di
rectly to the religious services being con
ducted at the institution and did not ent
any supper. His story was substantially
tho samo as that which he told Saturday.
Long was called in by Captain Cameron
because of dlscrcDanclea In the storv told
by Eshelman and in pointing out places

staggored on his way from the ccllroom
to the ofllce of Captain Cameron. Dctec
tlvo Glonncttl almost had to carry him.
At tho door of tho captain's otllco Eshel

then tried to hang back as though ho
did not want to enter. The detective had
to urgo him forward to get him Into tho

8-ycar-old brother, William, with Albert
Zubluch, of 1423 South Fallon street, all
playmates of the murdered boy. wero
taken to City Hall today In an attempt
to Identify Eshelman. AH declared they
had never seen him before. Policeman
Curtis, of tho C3th street and Woodland
hvtnue station, told Captain Cameron ho
had seen the man near the sceno of the
murder, SOth street and Gibson avenue,
but not within the last few weeks.
SEEN AT 6 P. M. DAT OF MURDER.
It has now been established definitely
that Eshelman entered the Inasmuch Mis
sion, where ho boarded, at about 6 IG
o'clock last Wednesday night, tho night
ot tho murder. Frederick L. Mortimer,
who checks the hats nnd coats nt the
mission, told Captain Cameron today that
ho could not be mistaken In the tlmo Esh
elman entered tho placo because he al
wnjs looked for tho man.
Eshelman always took five to 10 minutes
to tako off his overcoat, according to
Mortimer. The night of the muidcr was
no exception, and Mortimer remembered
mai several persons had called his at
tention to tho man standing with his
coat half off as If lost In thought.
Eshelman confessed Saturday that he
had strangled Kraft nnd hidden his
body In a deserted culvert near E6th
street nnd Gibson avenue, where it was
lounu cany Thursday morning.
Sitting stolidly In his cell on the sixth
floor of City Hall, Eshelman has been
closely watched since yesterday, when
he sent a note to Cantaln Cameron, In
which ho outlined directions for the dis
position of his body "In case he died
suddenly." Detectives are guarding
against an attempt at suicide. Captain
Cameron and members of the murder
squad are divided in their opinion as to
thn truth of Eshclman'a confession.
On Saturday he guided detectives over
the ground In the vicinity of tho crime,
and though he appeared to know It Inti
mately, his errors in pointing out the
position of tho body and tho spot where
some of the victim's clothing was found,
are taken an basis for doubting tho story
"Victor was aluajs the mildest man In
the world," said A. P. Wltmcr. of 1601
Summer street. Eshelman's cousln, today.
"After his mother died ho was brought up
by his aunt and his grandmother, both of
whom havo since died. Their Influence. I
always thought, had tho effect of making
him a most tractable person.
T don't think he had nerve enough
to commit such a crime. Why, he left
West Point at the end of a year because
ne was nomesick. ills grandmother was
well oft and ho knew he could go back
home nnd bo sure of a welcome. West
Point Is a pretty trying place, I guess,
and Victor didn't like It.
"He went to school In Lancaster and
when ho was 20 they sent him to West
Point. Aftor he left there he came to
Philadelphia and he has been here ever
since, so far as I know. We used to see
him every month or two.
"He had a good position with the trac

Into trouble with the company that he
began to act the way he does now," Mr.
WItmer referred to the time last October,
when Eshelman was sentenced to six
months In the County Prison after being
convicted of taking J375 from the Funeral
Beneficiary Association of the employes,
"I knew Victor was on the down grade
after the trouble In the traction com
