mony. New i'ork, Jan. ." One of the most
Interesting witnesses of the day In the
tilal of ltoland It. Mollr.eux was Win.
W. Schefller, a manufacturer of cos
metics He Identified the letter s-ent
by Mollneux to Mrs. Schefller, Inform
ing her that he was to be married
next day, th.it the manlage was sud
den, that It was finite a romance in
fau. This paitlcular letter was ad
difsscd "My Dear Sadie," and on ac
count of the high soclil standing of
Mis. Seholller and" the fact tu.it the
dlstilct attorney's office obt lined p..s
sesslon of the conesponlenee In a
fashion most mjstetlous, the hii Ident
has attracted considerable .utenllon
Mr. ScheMlcr said tint he and his wife
had known Mollneux for fo, or five
ears, that Mollneux nad triki;u their,
to his house, and tliat he was frlend
lv with thu defendant. Nothing was
elltlted that would have n tendency
to thiow any light on the mann-r m
which the district attorney obtained
possession of letteis belonging to the
wife of the witness. Letters from Mol
lneux to Sehelller were also placed in
evidence and Identified by the witness.
Mr. Schefller explained the sntetue
"Cornish Is In and I am out," whlih
appears In one of the letters, as mean
Ins that the defendant hou icslgned
fiom the Knlckeibocker Athletic elu'i,
while Cornish still lemalned there In
an official capacity.
One of the most Import nit witnesses
was Charles D. Allan, Mollneux's pil
v.ile societal y. It was Allan who
signed letteis for Mollneux "pel C. D.
A." lie had studied chemistry and had
leived in the laboratory of Mollneux.
Asl.t d if theie weie many poisons In
the laboratoiy. lie teplled, "Yes, bir
lels of them." Among the poisons
which he mentioned specifically wet
Purls green, ehiomo ellow, Dngllsh
veimllllon, dry nisenle In kegs and
quantities of meicury. Allan Identified
u lettei which he wiote to the "Studio
Publishing company, 1620 Hroadway,
New York cltv," signed "Roland IJ.
Mollneux. per C. D. A.," as oio that he
wiotu personally. He claimed that
Mollneux was looking for the names of
consumers of diy colors. The letter
was wiltten according to Instructions
In the oidlnnry course of business, but
the significance of the Ire Ident lies In
the fact that 1G20 Hroadway Is the ad
dress of the Koch letter box agency
nnd it In claimed that It was from this
letter that Koch learned the address of
Mollneux and sent the defendant a cir
cular o'feilng to lease a private letter
box an offer which It Is claimed Mol
lneux afterwards accepted. The wit
ness would not sweat, however, that
Mollneux ever saw the letter to the
Studio Publishing company, but he did
testify that he saw it copy of the maga
zine sent for on the desk of Mollneux,
subsequent to the opening up of the
