Sullivan Talks About the Case
Cuicaoo, 111., Juuo 17. The Grand
Jury oxamlued numerous witnesses In tlio
Crouin case this morning, but so fur as
known no new evidence of a startling na
ture was adiluccd.
Edgar S. Putten, superintendent of the
istal Telegraph Company, was again
called upou to enlighten the jury as to
the nnturo of certain telegrams alleged to
have passed botween prominent Chin-na-Gaol
niou in this city and New York par
ties aboutjthe time of the arrest of Maroney
slid McDonald. Ho was on tho stand for
Dearly an hour and spread considerable
documentary matter before tho jury, but
such few telegrams as appeared to have
any possible bearing upon tho Cronin case
were either so iodolinito or so enigmatical
ss to oiler little clow to their real signifi
cance. Mrs. Tom Whalen was subjected to a
severe examination ss to her knowledge of
O'Sullivan's complicity in tho murder, but
eho stubbornly niaintuliiod entire igno
rance of the a Hair. In emphatic terms sho
denied having takon any part iu cleaning
tho Carlson collage or removing blood
stains after tho murder, and roundly de
nounced tho criminating statements of
Woodruff's latest confession.
James C. (Juinn, the Clark street hatter,
testified to the intimacy that existed be
tween O'Suilivsn, Cougbhn and Wba!cn,
and as an evidence of that lutimary cited
a quarrel that took place lu Chirk street
saloon between Coitghlin, O'Sullivan
and Whalen on one side nud s man named
Boiich on the oilier, Bonch was badly
worsted and suffered sevetcly from tho re
sult of pngilUtic contact n it li Coughlln.
Cnpt Schucttlcr, of the Chicago Avenue
Station, was up and dowu ut fre)uent in
tervals, and furnished tho jury with a
pot-mortem photograph of the murdered
man and photographic views of tho Carl
son col taw, the catch basin and other points
snd localities prominently connected with
Harry Drown, tho clerk and junior part
ner of Alexander bulllvan, was on tlio
I'snd for thrca-qiiarturs of an hour. To
Air. l.rown were repeated about tho same
-question propounded on Saturday to Mr.
Windos, Mr. Sullivan's partner. In its
unimportance Mr. llrown's testimony
compared fully with that of Mr. Windc.
He Untitled that he shared Mr. Sullivan's
confidence only in legal matters effecting
the regular business of tho firm, and that
be knew nothing of the personal business
transactions of the Irish leader. He was
unable to givo the Jury any information
in regard to Sullivau s Hoard of Trade
tMculations, and knew nothing of tho
letter's liinuiigement of Clun-nu Gael or
Jlher revolutionary 'und. Tho witness
was not acquainted with Coughlin, O'Sul
livan or Woodrtilr, and if there was any
intimacy Ix'twccn Coughlin, or any of tho
three, and Mr. Sullivan he was not aware
of It. Mr. llrown's testimony was ol
very ncgativo character, but it ch-crly es
tablished onu fact that Mr. Sullivau's
business relations ss a lawyer and his re
lations as an Irish leader 'were evor dis
tinct and separate, and that Ids duties in
the latter capacity were never allowed to
interfere W illi or become merged in the
business transactions of tho firm.

he police magistrates that Patrick Cronin
was murdered In Chicago, snd which fur-nir-d
reasonable ground to believe, or
from which it spcarod probablo, that
Maroney or Mclnnald committed that
crime, Judge Andicws said it would not
be prop't for lihn to review the decision,
even if the court took s ditfercut view
from what hn did of the weight of such
evidence. Iho difficulty is that although
it Is a matter of geuerul newspaper notori
ety that Cronin was recently murdered in
Chicago, it appears that no coiiiH!tciil
legal evidence will ever be produced bo
fore the Magistrate, cither of tho fart
ol tho in tinier or that Maroney or McDonald
committed the acinic, Kvcn if telegrams
wcro to bo regarded as some sort of near
Siy evidence the telegram received Is
nothing but request that Maroney and
Mclonald shall be airrsted. It doc not
tale, or assume to state, that Croniu has
been murdered, or that cither Maroney
or MclKjmild bad anything to do with the
murder. IVtectivn Von lieriehten, in his
slllilavit doc not say that Cronin has been
murdered but merely that Maroney and
McDonuhl stand charged in Chicago with
his murder, snd that he Is Informed and
believes tint Maroney sod McDonald sre
guilty of the crime.
Judgo Andrews further sayst "It Is too
clear for argument that there was no com
petrol legal evidence whatever produced
before tho magistrate, npon which, ouder
tho provldous of our penal code, s war

Cuicaoo, 111., June ' 17. Hurke's con
nection with tho eaue it was found out later
was J imt this: Ho is the man who hired
Martcnyn, the expressman, to carry the
luruituifroin X 117 Clark street to tit
Carlson totugo. The police) wr re oil Lis
track several days after the finding of the
. V ' ol Vr. Crouin. They bad little
against hira except that his movements
were suspicious. He began to jump
around fiom one boarding placo to another
mm romarKUDie irequuncy. Detective
rainier secured a photograph of tho fellow.
Alter JMartenaen, the expressman, turned
up ho was shown tho pieturo of Burko.
"That is the very man who hi rod ma to
take tho furniture to the Carlson cottage.
i ou uecu not loos any turther. I am pos
itive ho is tho man." For prudential
reasons the police did not arrest Burke
immediately, but shadowed him. Ho
went to certiiiu parties, tho uamos of
whom the police refuse to di
vulgo, and obtained money. After
Burke obtained the money be bought
a ticket for Liverpool via the Allen Line.
He then boarded a train for Winnipeg, in
tending to go thence to Montreal. It was
soon found that ho bad taken tho train
north nnd tho telegraph wires were sot at
work. Tho result was that Chief McKay
took Burke iu as soon as ho stepped froiii
tho train. Burko is a Clan-na-Oaol man.
Ho came hero several weeks before tho
murder. He is a hot hcadod Irishman
and about twenty-six years of ago. That
he kuew Melville was s friend of P. O.
Sullivan has been established almost bo
vondadoubt. Burko is from Hancock.

"Burko is the right man," said Chief
Hubbard this morning, "but I don't want
to say anything about the affair yet, I
can tell you that I ora very much pleased
about tho arrest, howover, nnd that we aro
nearer to unraveling the mystery than
ever. We shall pot out extradition pajiers
as soon as possible and have tho man here

Birminuiiam, Ahi., Juno 17. In tho
Northern part of Tuscaloosa County, about
forty miles west of this city, the citizens
havo undertaken to break up s number
of illicit distilleries and capture tlio men
engaged in tho business. Fur a year or
more that part of tho SUto has been over
run with moonshiners who dually grew so
bold they carried on their business almost
openly and bccttuio a terror, not only to
revenue ofliccr but to all law-abiding cit
izens. About one month ago tho fow law-abiding
citizens of tho neighborhood held a
mass meeting and resolved lo break up tho
unlawful business. They addressed a let
ter to the moonshiners asking them to
quit tho business and leave the county on
pain of being delivered up to the revenue
officers and their stills destroyed. To this
tho moonshiners returned a delimit reply
nnd threatened with death by torture any
one who dared to betray them. Tho citi
tens waited sumo time before biking any
further action and tho moonshiner grew
bolder than ever. Finding peaceable aud
lawful means unavailing, the citizens met
again and organized themselves into a

If tho Alton Company bad called for such
