Minnie Williams Brother Too
Chicago July 27 Inspector Fltzpat
rick believes It to be certain that at
least three murders were committed In
L
I the castle of Holmes and through
t witnesses that were found today It Is
thought now that Holmes cnn be con
victed of muider In this city Jhe po
lice have tound a man whose name
they refuse to divulge hut who was
biought to the olllce of the Inspector
thU alternoon lie told the police that
ho had mounted three skeletons fur
Holmes and that the skeletons weie
uoin bodies taken from the house of
3 Holmes In Sixtythird street One of
these he said was the body of a man
und the other two were women lhey
I vteie taken from a dark room In
A i Hohness house In the night time nnd
two of tho mounted skeletons were re
f I i turned to Holmes The third skeleton
Is I now In the possebslon of Inspector
Fltxpatilck
t t The llesh of the bodies had not been
stripped from the bones when the
r bodies were given to the new witness
t
hut the faces were so badly lacerated
and torn that Identification would have
It been Impossible
The police also found an expressman
v today who was able to give what Is
believed to be Important evidence The
name of the exptessman Is Charles
Humphrey and In the month of June
19J he was hired by Holmes to de
liver a box and a trunk at the Union
2c depot In this city The box according
to Humphrey was taken from a dark
nnm nmi imil flu nnnearance of a
collln i lUllf box 1AV This I was expressed to Phil
adelphia while the trunk was sent In
another direction
TUB SKFH TON STOnY
The story of the man who articulated
the skeleton Is to the elfeet that In
juno 1MIJ he Was sent for by Holmes
who at that time was going under the
alias of Jotdon and asked if he would
articulate the skeleton of a man whose
body was In the possession of Holmes
He accepted the Job and was taken by
Holmes to a room which would have
been dark even In the day time
Stietched out on a table Jn the middle
of the loom was the body of a man
The skin had been entirely removed
Horn the face but In all otner lespects
the body was In good condition
The articulator and Holmes had some
talk as to the best way of taking the
body out of the house os Holmes said
he did not want the neIghbors to see
the body removed It was llnally agreed
that the artlculator should cut orf the
arms and that Holmes would provide
for the removal of the rest of the
corpse This was done attd the artlcu
r Mrttor tert iJ rnrtrewrciliiyiiitJ tliO armS
T with him In a sack He had Just
reached his house and was preparing
to go to bed when he was called to
the door by a loud knocking lIe went
down and found Holmes and another
man They had the balance of the
body which had been cut In two pieces
after the articulator had left the
house Holmes left after remarking
that ho would have another Job for
the man In a short time
Tiue to his word In December he I
k sent for the articulator a second time
and upon the arrival of the latter at the
r house of Holmes he was taken to the
same lark room where on the same
I table where the body of the man had
lain on the occasion of his first visit
was tho body of a young woman The
face of this corpse had been disfigured
In such a manner that It was Impossi I
ble to tell what she had looked like
hen alive
In January 1893 the articulator was
sent for a third time by Holmes and
1 In the tame room on the same table
Jie found the body of a second young
woman Ironi whose face all the skin
had been removed The articulator had
this body taken to his home where he
stripped the hones and mounted the
IIeltton
When ho called on Holmes for his
pay the latter refused to give It to
him and was moreover somewhat In
uueurs on the bill for moiftitlng the
two previous skeletons The two men
could not come to terms and the dis
pute finally ended ly the articulator
letulnlng possession of the third skel
eton and he still has It In his house
lie lemoved the skull tonight and
brought It to the centml police station
wheie It now Is The articulator will
be kept under close surveillance for
some days yet as the police do not
think he has told all lie knows about
fliu murders in thp castle
The police declare now that they have
nlmuHt pusltle pioof that the first fe
male body was that of Umcllne CI
ginml and the second that of Annie
Williams It la the skull of Annie Wil
liams that Is now at the central sta

ity Between Wyoming and the
1edcral Government

dispatch Hum Indian Agent Teeter
dated Hex burg Ida near Maiket
Lake July fctii was icceivcd today
On the 27th Inst 1 met Sheillt law
Icy heal Hex burg returning from
Jacksons Hole wneio he hud been
sent to ascertain whether settlers had
been killed by Indians Hawley states
the settluis had not been molested by
the Indians who ale supposed to have
been camped about forty miles from I
the settlement In practically an i
Impregnable position Thieve Is no
doubt of the fact that a large body of
Lemht Indians joined the other Indians
In Hobuck canyon
Speaking of the Indian disturbance
In northern Wyoming General Scho
held today expressed the opinion that
with discreet management the In
dians would soon surrender and return
to the reservation The only way
they could cause trouble Is by scatter
ing In the mountains but he thought
unlikely they would precipitate hostili
ties now the soldiers arc coming
Speaking of the dispatch from Mar
ket Lake stating that the Jacksons
Hole settlers would be arrested and
tried for the killing of several Indians
accused of violation of the Wyoming
game laws Commissioner Browning
said he knew that no steps were being
taken In this direction lie added the
Indian office would welcome the legal
test of the right of the Indians to kill
game In defiance of the State laws
If the courts decided that tho law
Is superior to the treaty of the United
States Government with the Indians
the matter will be settled and we will
be very glad of It he said

In a deseited shanty formerlY occupied
by Ernest Palmer 1 lancher
Ariivlng at their destination at 130
this moinlng the deputies disposed
them solves so as to Invest the shanty
which the outlaws were presumed to
occup The deputies awaiting day
light were shortly after apprised of the
presence of the outlaws who were
lust attracted by the appearance of
Dawes who unconsciously exposed
himself to their view whereupon a fu
sllade ensued resulting In the death of
Dawes and Stagg
Deputy SheilUs Calverly and Wil
liam lied Taylor the survivors of the
party wore leSt without ammunition
when the fhlng ceased and abandoned
their watch to go to Vnsatch and tele
gruph for help
When news of the tragedy reached
Evanston volunteers quickly responded
to the call for aid and went at once t
the scene of the encounter where after
thoroughly riddling the shanty with
bullets practically making u sieve of
It they cautiously approached the
ca ln und found It vacant
During the absence of the deputies
George und Couglln had availed them
selves of the chance t escape not
however belore lobbing the dead
boules of the two deputies Dawcs
and Stngg taking their guns and am
munition thus liicieasing tnelr oppor
tunities lot lurther leslscance In Limo
case of Stagg they overlooked u le
oiver that lay partly under him
I I is believed that a hot trout Cal
verly either hit one of the outlaws or
struck the gun In his hands us ho itms
seen to stagger and drop the gun At
all events me desperadoes have thus
tar escaped and gone to the hills tak
ing with them their Jaded horses
which I Is presumed can stand no
great Journey
While there Is hope of their Immedi
ate capture the desperation that has s
far characterized their actions heads
people here to believe that other and
moro serious trouble may follow en
tailing further loss of life
One thing Is certain two dead men
lie at the morgue in Evanston who
were yesterday full of life and hal
no appiehension whatever that their
end was near
Dawes was a Grand Army lan 43
years of age and leaves a widow
Stagg was nn old pioneer 63 years
of age with a grown family lie was
a man whom every one loved and le
speoted There Is a deep feeling of re
sentment against the ones who have
caused their dire taking orr
I Is Idle l to presume that either of
the murderers will bo taken alive
Tnelrs will be a light to the death I
captured alive they are almost certain

MAJORITY FOR SILVER

Sioux City la July 30The Jour

the Maishalltown convention handle
the money question f was asked
Charles A Welch secretary of the
State Democratic Committee
Kvery indication Is that the bimetal
Istu will be In contiol You can Judge
fOI yourself when I say that of thirty
counties thus far heard from twelve
delegations Instructed for free coinage
of gold and silver at tho ratio of 16 to
I f itir counties adopt the Chicago plat
form of 1S92 two express themselves
In favor of making the campaign on
State Issues and twelve counties go
unlnstructed The probabilities are of
course that a majority of the counties
of tho State will not Instruct at all
as It Is somewhat unusual this State
for county conventions to Instruct the
State convention but of those that go
uninstructed n large majority will be
for free coinage ot silver at 16 to 1

Causa of All the TroubleCopper
Production
Washington D C July 20 1893
General A J Warner president of
tho Bimetallic League of the United
States has arrived In the city after
an extended tour of the country In the
Intelest of silver General Wuiner ex
presses himself as much encouraged by
the outlook He denied emphatically
that silver is losing ground and states
that the charge Is only made by the
Eastern papeis
I am Just back said General War
ner from the sections where the light
for silver Is being waged and where In
the end It will be won and you may
quote me as saying that the people are
neither going over to the gold side of
the question nor becoming Indifferent
to silver The people Indeed were nev
er before so much Interested In silver as
they are at present There may not be
the excitement growing out of public
meetings and conventions that existed
In the spring but there has been no
n whatever of that Interest
which betokens un organized purpose
and upon which you may rely for good
results at tho polls
CAIIPETUAGGEH TO BLAME
Senator Dubois who leaves tomor
row for Idaho is very emphatic In
Stating that tie light of the controvei
ny between the whites and the lan
nocks is entirelY with tho whiles who
contend that If they me not to Ue al
lowed to kill game out of season the
same law shall be enforced against the
Indians And right here continued
me Senator wltn some warmth I
walt to express my belief that this
trouble would not have occurred but for
tho President having unloaded a car
petbagger on us as Indian agent
Ihe mans iiumo Is Teeter and he is
Horn West Virginia and was loiced on
us t oblige Mr Wilson Now Teeter
like all Easterners is afraid of an In
dian and perhaps I Is u good thing t
mistrust tnem until you get onto their
tricks Teeter has piouubly Issued
passes to these Ilannocks pernaps was
afraid to letuse at any late me en
tire tribe appeals to bo up there and
having been joined by the tough bucks
of other tubes uie killing game Indis
criminately who Interferes and ready to kill any one
But there will be no war or any
thing like one inures the pity nor do
I believe there las been rile troops
will get there the braves will prompt
ly submit and be taken back to their
reservation and there the matter will
end fqr a time A little later the In
dians will be off the reservation
slaughtering game again it cannot
be otherwise as long us Inexperienced
men such as Teeter are appointed In
dian agents and yet there are people
who blame the whites for taking me
matter in their own hands The extermination
matel
termination of the whole lazy shiftless
nonsupporting tribe of iiannocks
would not be any very great loss
