led the way to u clump of uustieo In rear ot

in tlie biiovv and ice during tlie several

in a pretty tad condition.

Capt. Theodore Cushing Otis, late of

documents, wblrh were lull of historical
interest, when Mr. Lyles, who had Just
overturned a big pile of wit and charred
papers, held up a document cucai-cd in
a long yellow envelope', wrapped with
red tape, and exclaimed:
"Why, here Js old Judge Holt's will."
Mr. Knifflu made a remark about Judge
Holt being connected with the hanging
of Mrs. Surratt, aud Mr. Lyles, at Capt.
Cunningham's request, passed the will
over to the latter.
IT WAS HOLT'S WILL
The instrument was burned about the
edges, water soahed, while several snails
wero crawling upon it.
"It was lu a nasty condition," said Cun

IN CUTTER'S POSSESSION.
There is little doubt but that Mr. Cutter
found the Holt w ill and placed that, too, in
the basket. This belief is strengthened
because or the fact that he never came
back. Probab'y he thought sonieoue would,
demand thereturnof the will.
Capt. Cunii Ingham and the Times reporter
unearthed these facts last night, and the
Captain believes lie is the person who

Mr. Ljies said last night to The Times
that he unearthed in rear of Mrs. Turners

WILL IS GENUINE.
One fact remains. The Holt will now
framed in tlie office of the register of wills
is genuine. There are four reputable and
dlsmtereftcd citizens who will make affi
davit that they brought it to light in
the pile of charred rubbish from the
Knox fire, whicli was unloaded iu the

of the other Holt papers are on the spot
now where the win was found, but in tlie
regular order of things, they were covered
