considered a certainty with a dense mass
of humanity as well as the Jury for an
Mr. Mitchell told at length the prose
cution's version of the case, incidentally
employing some decidedly harsh terms in
referring to Mrs. Farrall Without moving
a muscle the prisoner listened to thclawyer's
declaration that she had been bringing her
children into court for dramatic effect.
"Sitting here,1 he said, "they are the
listeners to and witnesses to their mother's
shaino and degradation. You ask, why
did sho have them here? The priests of
Egypt implored the gods to relieve the
people of famine and want, but failing
in this they brought, their little children,
placed them upon tile hjll tops, and tho
latter, with their tiny hands raised to
heaven, implored for what the others
dared not ask. Aud tnat is why Mrs.
Farrall brought the little ones here to
Bllcntly seek mercy for her which Mie her
self cannot pray for.
"It has been said that the accused is
persecuted," Mr. Mitchell also said. "Every
one knows how she is living at the sheriff's
house aud i s driveu to and fromcourtby him.
Does that look like persecution?'
Mr. Mitchell objected in vigorous terms to
tho saying of the defense that almost every
woman 'is in the hnbit of Joking with the
servants aboutthe house. Mr. Mitchelllalso
referred to Mrs. Farrall as a drunkard and
advanced the opinion that her infatuation
for Hall and tho murder of her husband
were due to unbouuded lust.
Tho case will undoubtedly go to the
jury before noon to-morrow.

Trace of the Boy, Howard.
(By Associated Press.)
Detroit, July 15 A special to the News
from Toronto. Out , says: Found buried in
the cellar of the house No. 16 St. Vincent
street this afternoon 'were the bodies
of Alice and Nellie, the two missing daugh
ters of Benjamin F Pitzel.
Detectives Cuddy, or Toronto, and Geyer,
or Philadelphia, made the discovery, and
all the doubts as to their fate have been
set at rest.
It is now a matter almost beyond doubt
thac II H Holmes, when here last October,
deliberately murdered the pair and thus
rid himself of two troublesome young beings
after he had murdered their father in
BOTH BODIES NAKED.
The inquiries begun by the pol.ee led to
the knowledge that Holmes and thechildren
lived at the house in question and a search
of Holmes was shown to Frank N. Nudel,
or the educational department, owner of
No 1G, aud without any hesitation heiden
tilied it as that of his tenant.
When they leached the cellar it appeared
to the detectives that something had dis
turbed the cellar floor, and arming them
selves .with shovels they began to dig.
A sliort distance below tho surface they
came across the arm and a portion of tho
head of one of the little murdered girls.
Further wort soon revealed the entire
body, uot only of the iirst, but of her
They were both naked and had lain there
in all probability since last October.
HOW HE DECOYED THEM.
The last trace tho officers had of the
children was at Detroit Thoy were taken
there from Chicago, where they had been
attending school. They boaided on Con
gress street one week in 1894.
Holmes secured possession of Alice,
aged thirteen, rirst taking her to Philadel
phia to identify her fatner's body. Then
he went' to St. Louis and told the mother
that ho would put Howard and Nellie in a
good school in Indianapolis. This was on
September 28, 1894, Mrs. Pitzel re
ceived two letters from Holmes in Indian
apolis, nnd acting on his advice she went
to her parents home in Illinois.
Becoming worried about the children she
went to Chicago where she received word
fromHolmesto go toDetroit. Shemcthim
in that city and demanded the children,
but was induced to go with him to Toronto
and then to Burlington, Vt. So far as
known tho boy was never seen In Detroit.
TRUNK TOUND IN HIS ROOM.
Toronto, Ontario, July 15. Thore were
no traces of violence on the bodies and it
is, thought that Holmes decojed the chil
dren into a trunk under some pretext and
took them to tho house. Then gas was
inserted by means of a tube through a
The trunk with a hole in It, neatly cov
ered over with a strap tacked down, was
found in one of Holmes' rooms. The little
girls when found were naked and had
been buried without a coffin of any kind.
No trace of the boy, Howard, a lad of
eight, had been found, but he is thought
to bo undoubtedly dead.
The St. Vincent street house has been
taken possession by police and an in
quest will be held to-morrow night at 8
o'clock. As tho crime was evidently com
mitted in -this country it will be neces
sary to extradito Homes and put him on
trial for tho murder here.
