Grand Jury at New York Is Now
, Using This Discovery as Evi

Find Many In
dictments. New York, August 16. When the
grand Jury began Its hearing of the
newly found evidence whlcn is ex
pected to start a string of Armenian
man-hunters toward the little room
of the Iron door at Sing Sing, It had
something more tangible and perhaps
more convincing than the mere wora
of trapped conspirators to go by. It
had the deadliest collection of mur
der tools that hag ever been l:una
under one roof in New York.
Acting upon information embodied
In the statement of Klssak Jolallan.
a squad of detectives went late yes
terday afternoon to a dingy tenement
at No. 817 East Forty-nlgth street.
On the ground floor of this building
Is an Armenian restaurant, where It
is now known many killings have
been plotted by the dreaded Hunch-
The detectives went straight to the
coal cellar. In a bin they found a ton
or more of hard coal, which they re
moved, lump by lump. Underneath
was a cunningly devlBed trapdoor,
which, when raised, revealed, a veri
table Bluebeard's tool chest.
Arrayed . neatly m rows were
knives with poisoned tips deadlier
than a rattler's fangs; revolvers of a
certain unique type, like the revolver
that killed the millionaire rug mer
chant, Tavlahanjlan. in Union square,
three weeks ago;, bottles ., filled with
drugs, the vapors of which are fatal,
and twimlii enough to Mow an ordlr
nary building into" "powder." - It was
the work-shop of the Hunchaklsts
that the detectives had unearthed,
under a commonplace coal bin.
There were three slender little files,
a scratch on the skin wtth the point
of one of which would mean death,
for each file's tip had its coating of
poison, just as Jolaliau had said.
Three long daggers were similarly
treated, so that the wounds would be
fatal even though the blades might
fall to reach, a vital organ.
Under the seals of three well stop
pered bottles was hydrocyanic acid,
better known as prusslc acid, even
the fumes of which are dangerous.
There was an Iron bomb and powder
to fill it, with fuses and other attach
ments to set it off. Wooden molds
for making bombs, a steel chisel, a
bottle of sulphate of antimony and a

MINER STILL ALIVE
Blsbee. Arlx., August 16. Struck
In the back by a large stone falling
from the roof of the drift in which
he was mucking, and suffering a
broken back, as well as other injur

Kalvin. who was engaged in muck

posture when a large rock fell from
the roof, striking him 4a the small

breaking his back.

Famous Mining Expert Says
Property of Lost Bullion
Company Is Very
Prof. Llnderman Contradicts Gov
ernment's Witnesses Against
That Concern and Case
Is Greatly Com- .
Denver, Colo., August 16. "In my
judgment the value of tjie property
of the Lost Bullion Spanish Mines
company is upwards of 120.AOO.onn
There is from 1600,009 to 1800,000
01 ore in signt, and the Ultimate pos
siblllties ef the mine r Immense."
Almost everybody was prepared to
hear that the evidence submitted by
the defense in the Lost iJollton case
would consist of such a statement.
But exceedingly few outside of those
In the secret expected that it would
be made by Prof. Karl Linderrrwin,
of Boulder. ' ,
If any mining engineer In the west
is worthy of the steel of Waldemar
Llndgren, of the United States geo
logical survey, it Is Prof. Llnderman.
From the point of experience and
scientific knowledge, It will be very
hard for the United State attorneys
to discredit the witness. Educated
at Saarbruecken, Germany, with all
the proverbial and almost exaggerat
ed thoroughness of Germans, he is a
mining engineer of position and
achievements. It was ho who discov
ered Linderman's Lake la Alaska. It
was he who devised the scheme for
draining ttve workings of thw Santa
Rita old Spanish mine in New Mex
ico at the instigation of William G.
Whitney, then secretary of the navy.
By this means many hundreds of
thousands of dollars were made for
the investors. - He has studied -. the
history and characteristic of,. eid
He- ris discovered and managed
mines all over the world, whose earn
ings have become a matter of history.
It is said that he built the flrsfhouse
in Denver. He came here in 1868,
and testified yesterday that he built
the first or mill In Colorado. He
has mined and studied the mineral
ogy and geology of the rich districts,
not only of the United States, but
South Africa, Australia, Saxony and
A am la.
His appearance Is typically Teuton
io. except that his stature is small.
His manner on the witness stand is
earnest and sincere to the point of
enthusiasm. And he gave it as his
opinion yesterday that the orooerty
of, the Lost Bullion Spanish Mine
company is not a natural limestone
cave, but a mine, formerly worked
by the Spaniards.
He gave his reasons for his belief.
His testimony In part was as fol.
Work Done by Human.
"The cross-cutting from on vein
lo the other showed every sign of
having been done by human hands.
A iso I saw that the passages had been
filled in with broken rock and masses
or ore. -The regularity of the pas
rages was another fact that convinced
me that it is an old SDanlsh mine.
also the rich mineral condition of the
ta.'is. The filling that is In the mine
is rrmde up of rock and ore that ham
fallen from the veins above.
"The so-called stalactites, accord.
Ing to the witnesses for the govern
ment, are not a regular staler-title
formation, but the crystallisation of
lime that could be formd in from
six to 60 years, not from 400 to 600
years, as tne government experts
have said. Of this I have seen proof
in certain mines in Colorado.
"The rock wedges that held un the
arches and rock, preventing them
from caving Into the atope in some
cases, snowed tnat they had been
beveled off so as to slip in."
Worked I-ong Time.
Regarding the time he had snent
on his examination of the property,
Prof. Llnderman made an Important
point for the defense. One of the
claims on which Mr. Franklin has
laid most stress Is that the aovern-
Ment engineers only made a cursory
investigation into the property of the
company. Both Waldemar Lindgren
an 1 James C. Cllmo admitted that
they had tal.cn less than a day to
examine th- al.eged mine.
Prof. I iittrman, on the other
band, t-ald his investigation had taken
him days. He said he had spent six
days on the surface and three look
ing into the underground part of the
property. He took upwards of 200
bam plea, anI made 24 assays, each
of them an ore reduction from 10
"I never before saw limestone
caves of any size. All the others I
have examined, when they were nat
ural caves, were small. I never saw
a limestone cave In which the floor
Is level, as In the case in the Loet
Bullion mine. Even though this
were a cave, the fact would not pre
clude the existence of minerals In It.
;ll anil Silver Found.
"Gold end sliver have been found
frequently In limestone," Prof. IJn
derman added. This is In direct op
position to one of the points made
by the United States.
"In Ijake county, Colorado, and
other districts In this state, and near
Helena, Montana, good values have
been obtained out of a formation sim
ilar to that of Hear mountain.
"From one assay 1 f,ud three
colors of free gold In the pan." Re.
Ing shown a map, he declared that
he had made it, and that It repre
sented the property of the company.

Roswell, N. M., August 18. Low

ted suicide at the home of his father,
E. P. Cooley, an engineer on the
Pecos Valley railroad, here last night,
by shooting himself through the head
with a revolver. His arrest for steal

would not help him avoid the dis
grace of serving time in the city jail
is believed to have been the cause.
The boy was arrested some time
since for disorderly conduct, and yes-
leraay ne was arrested a second time,
the charge in this case being stealing
$10 from a bicycle shop. He was re
leased to appear today, for trial.
On going home, it was noticed that
the lad was brooding over the affair
as he did not expect that his father
