GLEWS STILL LEAD.
Continued from Fifth Page.
Burrant is one of the men who are well
known at this time, for a hundred investi
gators have been prying into bis life and a
thousand gossips have been toiling every
thing they know, think or suspect con
cerning him. As a result of all this,
enough has been disclosed to show that he
led what is called "a double life"; that is
to say. he is a normal young man who has
lived' as other young men. When in church
he has been good, and when on tbe street
at night he has sought, to overcome the
world and experience life in all its phases.
Bien who can gratify their appetites in
the ea>y way of a night's frolic do not com
mit such crimes as that which has ren
dered Emmanuel Church a place forever
tabooed; a building to be abandoned and
nevermore used for the worship of God.
We most look for a different type of man
altogether. We must seek a man who has
not lived light and easy in the world, but
one whose instincts and appetites, dammed
■up by a narrow creed or some curse of na
ture,' have found no outlet until they have
swollen far beyond their natural limits and
him a demon in body, brain and soul.
In this respect the philosophy of crime
accord- with t lie evidence. There is that
man of 40, whom the girl knew. The man
in whom she intuitively felt the presence
of the demon, but of whom she dared not
speak. There is the gray hair found in
the clotted blood. These things do not
point to Durrant.
It is not worth while to go over the
minutue of the evidence. It should be
• borne in mind, however, that Durrant did
not leave his mother's house until 8 p.m.
He stopped at the armory and made ar
rangements to go with his corps on a
march next morning. He arrived at D.
His face on arriving there
arm with perspiration, but neither his
' hands nor bis clothing showed any trace of
blood nor of any struggle. Is it physically
possible that he could have butchered the
poor girl in the way she was, without get
any blood on'him? Is it physically
lat he could have gone anywhere
: tnge his clothes and gel luck in time
to reach Dr. Vogel's residence by 9:30?
The whole case is another warning
folly -.1" trusting circumstantial
evidence too far. The cases where wrong
has been done by reason of such evidence
are innumerable. In this case, despite all
the mass of circumstances against him. the
evidence of the known facts seem* to acquit
Durrant. The police should resume the
.. for the murderer. He is a man
• about 40 years old ; he answers the descrip
tion of Durrant: ho was probably rarely, if
ever, b& a in Miss Williams' company; he
lives in all likelihood not far from the
church and is familiar with it.
DURRANT WAS ANGRY
A Scene in the Prison by His
Refusal to Leave His
The protest made by General Dieicinson,
counsel for Durrant, before Judge Conlan
daring the arraignment of the prisoner
Bgainst i.i- client's being taken to the
Morgue to be present at the inquest, had
its effect upon Durrant yesterday morning.
When Sergeant Birke and Detective
. drove i.. the City Prison in a hack
and notified Captain Stone that they
wanted Durr;mt the captain went to the
prisoner's cell. He unlocked the door and
told Durrant there was a carriage waiting
for him outside.
"Where am I going?"' asked Durrant,
without moving from his seat.
"I don't Know," said the captain; "the
Chief has sent | * you."
"Where am I going ?*' insisted Durrant.
"I tell you I don't know. All I know is
that the Chief wants you."
"Well, I refuse to go out of here unless I
"I don't know anything about that.
Come along, and not keep the carriage
"I want a subpena," said Durrant, de
The captain had borne Durrant's refusal
to leave his cell with the utmost patience;
but his last remark, coupled with the de
fiant attitude assumed by him, was too
"If you don't come at once," said the
captain, sternly, "I will soon pack you out
Durrant saw that the captain meant
business, and sullenly put on his hat and
left the cell. Burke and Gibson, who had
been waiting in the carriage and wondering
what was the cause of the delay, did Dot
ln^e any time in seating him and driving
him down to the Morgue.
The advisability of sending Durrant to
attend the inquest has been thoroughly
discussed by Chief Crowley and the Cor
oner. They were afraid that the defense
would make capital of the point, as fore
■hadowed by General Dickinson's protest
to Judge Conlan. They consulted District
Attorney Barnes as to the right 3of :he
prisoner in the matter, and lie gave his
opinion that the Coroner has a right to
gubpena any one he may desire as a wit
Following out this advice, the Coroner
yesterday morning sent a deputy with a
subpena upon Chief Crowley to" deliver
Durrant into his hands, and the Chief had
to obey the subpena.
Notwithstanding the opinion of the Dis
trict Attorney, it is said that the point will
be raised that, as Durrant has the right to
refuse to testify there was no occasion to
subpena him, and that the fact that he
•was made to attend acainst his will shows
a disposition on the part of the police to
This morning at the inquest Durrant
■will be afforded the opportunity to give
THE CHURCH LIGHT.
Durrant Charged the Battery
. on January 12— The Bel
Janitor Sademan of Emmanuel Church
found a memorandum yesterday which
establishes the fact that Durrant did not
go into the church to repair the appa
ratus in the building on the day of
Blanche Lamont's disappearance. The
memoranda mentioned showed $hat Dur
rant repaired the apparatus on January 12,
and since that date it has not been out of
The janitor does not know whether or
not Dun-ant had a key to the lock in the
belfry door. The key which opens
that "door is like the key that opens the
balcony door, through which whoever re
pairs or adjusts the church lights must
A DOOMED EDIFICE.
Dr. Gibson Complains of the
Work of the Searchers of
Dr. Gibson, whose demeanor throughout
the whole dreadful affair has been gov
erned by a woeful lack of practical judg
ment, continues to manifest the same
Btartling deficiency. He appeared at Em
manuel Church yesterday afternoon and
complained bitterly of the manner in
■which the searching officers had ransacked
Notwithstanding the fact that nothing
has been injured in the different halls and
rooms, and only the floors in the gallery
and belfry had been opened, the mysteri
ous person was angry and strongly con
demned the men who have labored indus
triously and intelligently fo uncover the
awful crime. He inquired complainingly
for different articles, and intimated in un
mistakable terms that some of his property
had been stolen. He was harsh in his
When told by Officer Porter that
he could take "charge of the church
building he refused to accept it and de.
parted to consult the trustees on the sub
Among the people of the vicinity there
is a hope that the desecrated and blood
stained edifice will never more be used for
religious worship and that it will be torn
down and removed from the lot. The
police officers are not satisfied that no
more evidences of crime exists between
those walls or under the floors, and in the
event of a removal the search will be con
tinued during the course of demolition.
It is believed that the building will be
burned down if it is permitted to remain
there, and the local insurance companies
are contemplating canceling the risks on
the possibly doomed edifice. Should the
church be permitted to remain it is felt
that its usefulness is over and the dark
weather-beaten belfrey will be an uncanny
place, haunted by the memory of the
young maidens who perished so miserably
AN OFFICIAL VISIT.
Judge Conlan and His Prose
cuting Attorney Inspect
Among the visitors yesterday to the
scene of the murders were Police Judge
Conlan and Prosecuting Attorney Wake
man, who were accompanied by Detective
Cody. The object of their visit was to in
spect the interior of the church so as to be
better able to understand the testimony to
be taken at Durrant's preliminary examin
ation on Monday morning. Chief Crowley
also joined them. They spent over two
hours going carefully over the building.
District Attorney Barnes was to have been
one of the party but he postponed his visit
till some other time.
That Trail of Blood.
A greatly exaggerated story was spread
yesterday afternoon in regard to a trail of
blood found by Policeman Herve. The
story grew in size until it told of spots of
blood that commenced at the Emmanuel
Church and ran along in the direction of
Durrant's house until it nearly reached
the dwelling. The truth is that Officer
Herve. the "Corkscrew Spider," found
spots of blood on a sidewalk not far from
the church and he traced them across a
vacant lot until they came to an end near
There is nothing to show that the spots
of blood have any connection with the
murder cases. In fact they must have
been made since the time of the Williams
murder, which was Friday night, as it
rained early Saturday morning heavy
enough to have obliterated them. Herve
found the bloody trail Monday, but con
sidered it of so little importance that he
did not speak of it until yesterday. A
man with a nose bleed, a wounded dog or
anything of the kind may have been the
cause of the sensational 9tory.
He Did Not Know Ware.
The theory that Durrant murdered Eu
gene "Ware is most absurd. Durrant denies
that he ever knew "Ware, and none of his
friends ever heard of their acquaintance.
Moses H. Job, a commission merchant,
who was Ware's room-mate for a longtime
before his death, settles the wild rumors.
He said: "I am sure Ware did not know
Durrant. I never heard of him, and
Ware never mentioned his name. I
cert-ainly knew all of Ware's acquaintances
who were at all friendly with him. The
statement in the Chronicle that Durrant
frequently called on Ware at the hotel on
the corner of Mission and Seventh streets
is false. The story that Minnie Williams
lived at the hotel for a short time is
eoually absurd. A young lady, Miss Viola
Williams, was at the hotel, but she was
i'.ist the opposite in appearance to Minnie
Williams. Viola Williams was a blonde of
fine, large form."'
He Had No Bundles.
The rumor that Durrant may have
taken to Mount Diablo whatever bloody
clothes or relics he had of the murder
seems to be unfounded. William A. Frod
sham, one of the armorers of the Second
Artillery Regiment headquarters, was at
tiie armory when Durrant went there early
on the morning after the murdei of Miss
Frodsham said last night: "Dun-ant
rode up to the armory at 7:29 a.m. He
had no oundle or anything with him when
he came in. He was in his campaign
uniform and could not have had anything
about him that he might have desired to
drop into the bay or hide up on the moun
tain. I know just what he took with him.
He had a haversack, a bugle, a canteen, a
revolver and twenty rounds of ammuni
tion. I packed Durrant's haversack my
self. It contained a plate, knife, fork,
spoon and some hard tack."
HAS SHE BEEN FOUND
A Rumor Spread to the Effect
That Mrs. Forsyth
There was a rumor around town last
night that Mrs. P^lla Forsyth, wife of
George W. Forsyth, pressman of the
Schmidt Label and Lithographing Com
pany, had been located in San Jose. The
lady in question disappeared from her
home at 1604 Larkin street a fortnight ago !
to-day. Before her bvisband left for his I
work she told him she was going to Black
Point to gather some shells. She started
for the beach, but that is the last heard
from her until the rumor was started last
The man connected with the disappear
ance of Mrs. Forsvth is said to be John
Ernerv of 946 Fofsom street. The pair,
according to the rumor, met repeatedly in
the square on Steiner street two months
ago. and there during the stolen inter
views became intimate. With $200 which
he received from the East, John paid the
way and the couple reached San Jose.
A call at 94fi Folsom 6treet revealed the
fact that the Emerys had moved three days
ago. Where they had gone no one seemed
to know, and as to their whereabouts there
was not a single clew.
George W. Forsyth was found at his
home, 1(504 Larkin street, and indignantly
denied the truth of the rumor. "Until the
little woman stands there before me and
says she is tired of me, I will believe noth
ing. The evening papers have no right to
come out and make assertions which are
only based on rumor.
"My wife went to the Black Point beach
to gather shells to finish a workbox she
began some months ago. She was very
venturesome and, I think, climbed on a
rock and, missing her footing, fell into the
hay. She used frequently to call on her
lister at the Hamilton Grammar School,
but outside of her she made very few visits.
As soon as I heard the story I "telephoned
Chief Crowley, but he said there was no
truth in it. Now, don't you think the
Chief of Police, who has had his men on
the case for two weeks, would have known
something about it if the story was true?
My wife didn't take a thing with her.
There was a considerable sum of money in
the house, but she left with 65 cents in her
pocket. She did not take her curling
tongs or a single garment except what she
wore, so naturally I can have no Buspi
In this connection a story that bears on
the case comes from Dan's coffee saloon on
Stockton street, near Market. Her brother
Alfred is in charge there at night, and a
stranger entered the place a few dayw ago
and asked to see him. Wnen tola that
Alfred was out he informed the proprietor
that the family need not worry, as Mrs.
Forsyth had gone away with a "man who
would drop her as quickly as she dropped
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1895.
OUT AT THE RACETRACK.
Thornhill's Win Was an Un
welcome Surprise to
AN UNPOPULAR ■ DECISION.
Bellicoso Given a Race That Most
People Thought Quirt
Coady and Sloane each rode two winners
Thornhill ran the mile from wire to wire
yesterday in I :4o}^.
Tod Sloan, who rode Thornhill, is said to have
won $GOO over his victory.
In my opinion Colonel Chirm will have all
kinds of money after the Harlem derby.
Rey Alta was a supposed "good thing" in the
last race. Kd Purser got aboard of it, but also
Tom Ryan's string of horses, including the
speedy Tarturinn, will probably leave for the
East next Tuesday.
■ One man who figured Thornhill to win on his
last two runs finally admitted that he had once
been in jail for burglary.
Louis Lissak and Naglce Burke bet enough
money on Bellicoso to found an asylum for per
sons that bet on horseraces.
Ab Stemler's face looked like the man in the
moon after an attack of la grippe when Thorn
hill came in ahead of Lovdal.
Bookmaker Walter booked yesterday nnder
the name of F. C. Ives, vice A. J. Levy, resigned
from the game. Cause — too deep.
W. 08. Macdonough wagered nearly enough
on Lovdal and Quirt to buy Ormonde's best son
Orme. That Sacramento tip was a hot one.
Bob Ifiom is quite a bicycle crank. Judging
by Thornhill's performance yesterday Bob
must have lost a pedal when he rode him on
When Don Fulanoand Realization are beaten
easily in liOS^i, I think it a good time to
migrate to England and try fortune on the
English turf. Willie Sims is in good form just
If Mike Casey, the steeplechase-rider, was to
start for market astride of a mule and be held
up on the way, Mike would undoubtedly be
unfortunate enough to be accused cf standing
in with the highwayman.
Gilead's run yesterday was enough to make
Hamlet himself act as tirst grave-digger. One
turfite remarked that his great four-mile run
was just beginning to affect him. Probably so,
but it came on him suddenly.
The departure of the horses of the Kentucky
stable was delayed by an attachment, the prin
cipal indebtedness being a feed bill amounting
to something over if4oo. Matters were satis
factorily settled, and Lissak and his stable
mates rolled out of Frisco yesterday.
It is probably just as well for Denny Lynch of
the Arizona stuMe that he did not succeed in
matching Midas against Flashlight for $5000 a
side. Taking the run of Midas yesterday into
consideration, it looks as though Tom Moore,
the owner of Flashlight, would be spending
some of Mr. Lynch's coin about this time.
Thomas Lr.ndy, the owner of Thornhill, ex
plained to President Williams and the stew
ards that the running of the horse was inex
plicable to him, and that no attempt at fraud
had been made on his part. Perm Moore,
his present trainer, is an honest and pains
taking young trainer, who has but lately had
full charge of the horse, and he admits the horse
was good on his previous start, and was unable
to account for his poor showing.
Ab Stemler says he will bid the bald-faced
chestnut up and get him if he ever catches him
in a selling race. Ab undoubtedly has a kick
coming from him, but so has Thomas Lundy,
the owner of Thornhill. Mr. Lundy backed his
horse on his two previous starts and the hor.*e
ran most disappointingly. Yesterday his
owner let him run unbacked and the book
makers are thinking about presenting him
with a service of gold plate, for their sheets
looked most inviting after the race.
There v>ere two features of the track yes
terday that tended to have a very exhilar
ating effect on the day's pport. The lirst
was the victory of Thornhill in the mile
and a sixteenth handicap, over a good field
with 15 to 1 against him, and the second
was the very unpopular decision given by
tne judges in the last race, when they
placed Bellicoso ahead of Quirt, and an
angry crowd of race-goers surrounded the
judges' stand and gave vent to their dis
pleasure by hissing the decision. A squad
of patrolmen at once surrounded the
stand, and for awhile it looked as though
a small-sized riot wa3 in course of con
struction, but the crowd dwindled away
when they saw the decision was final.
In the handicap Gilead opened a 9 to 5
favorite, but it was not his day. From
fives Lovdal, fresh from Sacramento al
falfa, was pounded down to 2U to 1. to
which figure Gilead receded in the betting,
the two going to the post equal choices.
Midas was firm at 3 to 1, but tne pencilers
couldn't give away a ticket on one of the
Briefly, there was but one horse in it,
and that was Thornhill. Sloan went out
in front when the flag fell, and he led from
that to finish, winning by three lengths in
1:47%. Lovdal wound up second, about
the same distance in front of Midas. Those
who held a winning ticket were about as
plentiful as a crap-shooter at a church festi
The race that caused the pow-wow was
the last one on the card — a six-furlong
dash, with four starters. The general fig
ures were 7 to 5 and take your pick against
Quirt and Bellicoso. Rey Alta was backed
down from 10 to sto 1. Playful was in
Bellicoso took the lead soon after the
flag fell, holding it until well into the
stretch, where Quirt drew alongside of him
and the two indulged in a drive to the
wire. Isom, on Bellicoso, carried Quirt
out from the drawgate to the wire, but at
that the bald-faced mare appeared to have
won by about six inches, but the judges
viewed it differently and gave the race to
Bellicoso. Quirt's rider, Chevalier, says
most emphatically that he won, and I will
add that I think he is right when he says
so. At any rate it did not suit the crowd,
the majority of which were positive the
little mare finished in front.
The first race, at seven furlongs, was
taken very cleverly by the 3to 5 favorite
Mulberry, well ridden by Tod Sloan.
Faro as cleverly got the place from Del
Tne orange with erreen sash colors of
Theodore Winters led the field to the wire
in the second race, Adelante, the 9 to 5
favorite, winning off the reel with Coady
up. In a drive, Red Root beat Agitato
half a length for the place.
Marionette was the third straight favor
ite to win, elopinp with the two-year old
race very impressively, going to the post a
3 to 5 chance. Tennessee Maid had no
trouble in disposing of Walter J for the
Opening in the betting at 9 to 5, Don
Fulano was backed down to even money,
to win the fifth race, a five and a-half fur
long spin. Realization was a well backed
second choice with 2to 1 about him. The
Howard folks thought their horse fit, and
got as good as 6 to 1 against him.
i The Don and Realization chased out in
front when the field was sent away, show
ing the way into the stretch. An eighth
from the wire Realization had enough and
it looked like an easy thing for Don r ulano.
Coming like a shot from the rear Howard
passed him a hundred yards from home
and won in a canter. In the hands of his
present trainer Howard is a greatly im
