Detroit, Mich., April 20. By a confes

wicked of pIotH imaginable, for disposing
ot nn erring girl and her ba,bo, in order to

tho possession of the publiC'pro6ecutor, is
believed to bo a clergyman ot the Church

divulged gave to tho prosecuting attorney
what were bolicvcd to be tiue facts and
brought evidence to piove her story. Tho
dead girl's body was disinterred, and tho
witness positively identified it.
Her story is that the girl's real name was
Emily JIall; that she. was a well-born and
refined Engli&h girl, and that her betrayer
was a man of such high standing that he
found it necessary to scud her over 3,000
miles, that ho might bo rid ot her shamo
iyitliout damage to his reputation.
He accordingly arranged to tend her to
the Detroit establishment where she died.
The witness wio gives the above story was
formerly an inmate of Mrs. Lane's house
and to her the dead girl told her story
and gave some of its evidences, including
damaging conversations between Mrs. Lano
and Dr. Seaman. ,"
This afternoon the Lanes and Dr. Sea
