MAXWELL'S CONFESSION.
HOW THE PEELLER CAME TO HIS
DATH.
The Statement bj Which His Mur
derer Hopes to Escape the
Hallow.
t. Louis, Mo., May 18. The antici
nation that the Maxwell trial would
ba begun in earnest to-lay att' noted
a l.re crowd of spectators to the
Criminal Court room this morning.
The work of the morning was to have
been the selection of the jury from
the panel of forty-seven who were
elected last week from those sum
moned to submit themselves totae
examination as to their ability to im
partially try the rase. All but one ef
the panel of forty-seven wera pref ent
when the court opened, but the ab
sence of this one d layed the proceed
ings. The court issued a writ com
manding his presence, and it was
placed in (he hands of a deputy who
immediately went in search of the
delinquent. At noon he had not been
found.
Later. At 1 :30 o'clock the deputy
returned with h s man. The prose
cution and defense made-their chal
lenges, the former demanding the
withdrawal of twenty from tho to al
number of forty-Beven, the latter fif
teen, thus leaving twelve, which com
pose the jury which will try the case.
The court then adjourned until 2:30
p m , when C. D. Bishop, for the
Suite, opened the case.

The PottDapalch this afternoon
prists a statement made by U. M.
Brooke, alias Maxwell, now on trial for
the murder of C. Arthur Prelltr,
which will constitnte the defense of
Brcoks, and which will be urged to
the utme3t by his attorneys in the
triel. Tbe tatement was tuxde to Mr.
Johp. J. Jtnki s, the present city
editor of the Port Dirpatrh, and it bus
been approved by Brooks's attorreys.
Mr. Jenkins premises the s Htemrfnt
with some iemaks, tbe ul ief pain's
of which are as lo Iowa: Maxwell's
explanation of the death of Preller ii
the only defense. Teat explanat'on
was made in writing to his attorneys,
Meswi. Mania and Fauntleroy, many
months ago, and Maxwell will go on
the witnees stand and repeat it. In
giving it he raid bis deMre all along
was to unburden himself to the pub
lic, and ti allow his anions
previous to and alter the crime
to substantiate his declarations.
These actions show that he neither
premeditated crime or tried to con
ceal one, for, from the moment of his
arrival at the Southern Hotel until bis
departure tor San Francisco, every act
and almost every word of bis bas been
the property of the public, and tb.es a
acts ana these words form the strong
est links in the chain of circumstances
which tbey have forged to hold bim
to this crime. "Th only iC'," said
Maxwell, "about which tbere bat been
sny doubt at all bas been the act of
which I am accused. I reconizsnow,
ai much ss anybody cjuld, that 1
made a mistake in ithbolding my ds
fense, but what could 1 do? I was
here alone, In a strange world, with
no one to advise me but my counsel
and I followed the advice they gave
me, to the letter."
The attorneys for tbe defense will
not deny the identity ot the remains,
but will acknowledge tbe dfa'b of
Preller at Maxwell's bands, and insist
tbat the death was due to an accident
ariaing from circumstances which he
himself hid invtsd. The following
is Brooks's slattmant:
"Mr. Preller was suffering from a
pr'.vate dieaase for which I had pre
viously prescribed, mixing the medi
cine myself from the bottles in the
medicine ctse I carried with me; but
his ailments reached a stage when it
was necessary for me to make certain
invontications. I WeS obliged to Uee a
catheter, and lousing a cttbeter wben
the parts were Ir Aimed I had previ
ouly applied chloroform in order to
produce a condition oi nurc uisLu.
Tif ed chloroform in tbis manner as I
did on a man named Harrison in Liv
erpool without any ee. ions result. I
axnlnined the crjctss o Mr Prllr,
and told bim what I should have
to do. He was not only willing
but was very anxious fir me to tie t
him in this manner. During tne dy
I purchased four, ounces of chloro
form, which w. s standing in a bottle
on the edge of my wasusuind when 1
was washing some surgical inntru
mente. Thia washing of the instru
ments took placa Sunday afternoon,
and was intended as a preparation for
thn operation. In waemtie the instru
ments I overturned the bo.tle of
chloroform and it went headlong into
the haiin. the e rk coming out acd all
but about an ounce and a half going
down the sink. Tbis was probably 3
p.m., and after gf ttirgmy instruments
reedy I wen out to secure nuio muro
chloioform. I w?nt to the drug store
I don't know where but tha stors
near the hotel (Fernow's) snd asked
for chloroform. The clerks, or some
nersons the r. .Lave said that I was
excited and in a hurry. This was not
so. I sat down in a chair in the drug
store for more than a quarter of an
honr. and wasal .onetner very leisurely
about my baBineee, for there was no
hurry. If 1 am not mitaken I had a
Ions conversation with soma one
in the drug s ore. When 1 got the
chloroform I repa'eoi to my loom.
Preller had beeu in snd out of my
.room and his own all fie a'ternoon.
About 5 o'clock p.m. we began the
opei ation. I administered the ch.or
form in tfca nsual war. boldine a sat-
rad cloth lo the nose. Trailer
cawed throuch the first stage allright
it took eeveral moments. I don't know
oxactlv how Ions, be 'ore he entered
the socond stage, and here the terrible
result came. I discovered too late
that be was dy ng. Imagine my hor
ror when this fact dawned npon me
I was honsfied, but had presence of
mind enough to cut tbe enirt ana un
derehvrt from tbe body, and getting a
wet towel I beat him around tbe neck
and shoulders for a balf houror more.
I d d not five np nntil I was ready to
droo trom exnauarion. tie nan ce
dead some time. All the clothes he
had on at tbe time were a shirt
and undershirf. He had stripped to
4hta for the operation. What did
I do when I saw mv friend
in dead? What could I doT
didn't kcow whaf, except to drink
and I drank freelv. I orank every.
thing I could get, wine, whisky
verrthintt. What wera my thoughts
I hadn't anv. All I remember is that
I drew on a rair of drawers, the first
that fell into my ba'idj, and pot tbe
hor into mv tru k. from wbicti
had removed everything. I put it in
the trurk en hoar after Preller
death. Whnt. w s done brfide this
Lave to fcoMet tort of. Liquor aa
coir-ternstion had poesson ot me,
and 1 know tbat my feelings were
thru of the ntmo-t horror. I re
mnined in my room, that night th
eame ro"iii ;n which the remains
were and it word 1 be a lie for me to
say that I slept, for I dida','. and I wcb
ad when morning rame. What I
id after leaving mv room you know,
far it has all been piintcd."
"Win a catheter tornd among your
medical instinmentiT"
"I don't know. I curled some of
my instruments awsy in a valine and
threw them into the Pacific."
"Had you any p!ansabou;dispcsicg
of tbe body?"
"None whatever. I meant to leave
it there, expecting that it would bei
iscivered sooner Uian it was, ana
thinking that a post mortem would to

Mr. Jenkins closes by stating that
thin is only a tynopjis of tbe fall writ
ten statement in the hands of BronkVa
counsel, which give) all the det lis of
ie Sunday occurrence in rODin 144 ot
