The Case of the Noted Criminal
Comes Up In Philadelphia.
HE IS 0ONDUOTING HIS OWN OASE.
After an Ineffectual Attenapt to Have the
Hearing Postponed. Counsel For the De
fense Withdrew-A Story of the Crime
For Which Holmes Is Being Tried-HIS
PHrrADELPHA, Oct. 29. - H. H.
Holmes, who according to his own re
markable confessions. stands at the head
of the list of modern criminals, was put
on trial in the court of oyer and termi
ner for the murder of Benjamin F.
Pietzel. Arraigned against him as the
commonwet&h's prosecutors are District
Attorney George S. Graham and his
special assistant, Thomas W. Barlow.
A sensation was created by counsel for
the prisoner withdrawing from the case
after they had made an ineffectual at
tempt to secure a postponement.
Holmes is conducting his own case.
Judge Michael Arfiold is upon the.
bench. So many aliases have been
worn by the man on trial during the
oourse of his spectacular career that his
baptisilial name, Herman Mudgetts, has
almost been lost sight of.
Not so with his manifold exploits in
half a dozen of the big cities of this
country, which have been marveled at
wherever men can read. Wild and
weird as is the confessional sto of his
life, in which he accuses himse of of
fenses which would lon- since have
given a less skilled crimina his quietus.
Holmes has been careful to shift the
main responsibility for the various mur
der with which he admits having
been connected, to other shoulders.
Thus, during the 88 years of a life de
voted almost entirely to law breaking,
this is his first experience as a felon on
trial for his life. The authorities have
recognized that this is no common crin
inal, but one who might be called a tech
nical and most expert artist in crime.
It is, therefore, their determination in
the event of his conviction for a capital
offense, to "railroad" him to the gal
More than a year having passed since
the discovery of the crime for which
Holmes is now on trial, and so mian
conflicting tales having since been told,
each outdoing the other - in weirdness
and atrocity, 4 rehearsal of the facts of
this chapter of the story is relevant.
On Sept. 3, 1894, the corpse of a man
was found in the second story of a ram
shackle building at 1,516 Callowhill
treet, in this city. The dead man had
been known as B. F. Perry.
The body was lying on the floor and
by its side was a pipe partly filled with
tobacco. The face was blackened and
blistered as if from bums, and nearby
lay a broken bottle, which ha oontain
ed benzine. From a ces, an ex
losion had occurred while the man was
ting his pipe. Some small dro f
blood on the floor were credited to slit
wounds on his neck The police believ
ed the afair *as an acoident, and, no
ne for a moment entertaiied the theo
ry of murder.
Among the effects found in the room
were several letters from Perry's wife in
St. Louis, the signatures to which had
been torn off. To the .neighbors Perry
had been known imply as an inventor.
The coroner's physicians held- an au
topsy aiid, finding evidences of chloro
form and conte lungs, the jury gave
a verdict of death from inhaling the
fumes of chloroform.
About three weeks after this occur
rence, Jeptha D. Howe, a St. Louis at
torney, after correspondence with coro
er Ashbridge, came to this city end
asserted that the body of the supoe
Perry was that of Benjamin F. ietzel
of St. Louis. and that he, Howe, was
ere to collect $10,000 insurance from
the Fidelity Mutual Insurance company,
for which amount a policy had been
made out in favor of Mrs. Pietzel in
Chicago a year before. Meanwhile,
Holmes, who had introduced Peitzel to
the insurance agents, when the latter
was insured, was induced by them to
come to Philadelphia and identify the
body-. This he did, positively, and so
didAlice Pietzel, the 16-year-old daugh
ter of the dead man. With this une
guivocal testimony the insurance com
pany paid the money. Here the first
stage of the extraordinary affair came
to a close.
The second opened some time after
ward in a manner smacking strongly of
the dime novel. Marion C.. Hedspeth,
the notorious train robber, in jail in St.
Louis, Mo., one day made a remark that
Holmes, while in an adjonig cell, had
conspired with Pietzel and Howe to
swind~e a Philadelphia insurance com
pany by substituting a body supposed to
be that of Pietzel. Detectives took up
this clue and worked for weeks but not
a trace could be found of Pietzel, Mrs.
Pietzel or the .children.
Holmes, however, was arrested on
Nov. 17, in Boston. He was made to
write a decoy letter to Mrs. Pietzel, in-I
ducing her to come to Boston, where she
was arrested, and tgher they were
brought to Philadlha The womnan
was subsequently rlae, but has since
been under the surveillance of the po
Holmes has been confined in Moy
amensng prison dnd at intervals, from
that time to the present, has made many
and conflicting explanations of every
affair with whiceh his name has been as
sociated. By his own confession he has
been implicated, directly or indirectly,
in three deliberate murders, the disap
pearance and possible murder of three
children, bigamy, many conspiracies,
(to one of which he has already pleaded
guilty in court) and, in fact, almost
every crime in the calendar.
Holmes has proved himself to be a
man of unlimited nerve, e~ of manner,
eloquent of seech, refinedin appear
ance, self conddent and ambitious.
Onl enough people were admitted to
well the courtroom without uncom
fortably crowding it.
Proniptly at 10 o'clock Holmes was
brought into court and placed in the
