More About tho Belleville Horror.
Bkllbville, III., Jan. 9. Dieging ir
tbe ruins of tbe burned convent was pur
sued all day. Tbe walls of the building Id
s-veral places pnsent a very dangcrou?
looking appearance, being cracked ami
sagged and likely to topple over without a
moment's warning. A large crowd Is al
ways in the vicinity of the building eager to
catcb a first glimpse of any corpse recov
ered, and should tbe walls fall outward tbe
loss of life would at least equal that
occasioned by the burntng of tbe Institu
tion. Some ot the walls became so unsafe
yesterday tbat Mayor Weber ordered litem
torn down, while others Just as dangerous
were allowed to remain stand
ing. The detail of police wh'ch
kept toe crowds of people the first
day after the fire were removed as soon as
the walls cooled and became really danger
ous, the sole responsibility of preventing
serious loss ot life from falling walls now
resting on one old man, who Is stationed
in tbe rear of the building where the curiosity-seeker
never visits. The search for
the missing victims was resumed early this
morning by Street Commissioner Strombers
and a la ge force of men, but is progressing
very slowly. Tbe debrii is burning fierce
ly under tbe top layer of bricks and mortar,
making it a very difficult task fol
the men to continue tbe work. - A bucket
brigade, consisting of two men, was form
ed this morning, to temporarily cool the
spots at wbicb tbe men are working. Ac
cording to tbe manner in wbicb the work Is
now being carried on, the building will not
he cleared till some time next week.
About 11 o'clock, tbe first and only corpse
found to-day, was unearthed in the cellar
of the northwest wiog of tbe building, and
consisted of about two bandsful of bones,
crisp and burned almost to ashes. Some
of the convent people now elalm there are
only two more victims unaccounted for,
but the Coroner Is oertaln that ten more
bodies are in tbe building. Tbe search will
be continued without Intermission till 6
o'clock this evening, when It is expected
all who perished in tbe large dormitory
will be found.
Tbe unclaimed bodies will be removed
from tbe morgue to tbe church this after
noon, as soon as tbe coroner's Jury con
clude their Inquiries, and will be tn st.itv in
the cburch all night. The church will be
illuminated and remain open for all who
wish to visit the remains before 11 o'clock.
The gentlemen of tbe parish, at a meeting
held this morning, decided to keep a night
watch over the remains, and will remain
with them till to-morrow morning, when
the funeral services commence. The re
mains of Mother Mary Jerome bave been
removed from the morgue to the Orphan
Asylum, but will be taken to the church
this afternoon with tbe other bodies. A
telegrsm was received from Bishop Batten,
ot Alton, this morning, staling he would

FRANK'S LATE MOVEMENTS.
After being surrendered to bis bondsmen
by the court In Gallattin In December,
Frank James returned to Independence,
where be look up his residence in a board
ing house with his wife. It was during bis
residence there that steps were taken for
bis arrest by United States authorities to
answer for the Mussel Shoals robbery in
Alabama, and for obstructing the mails at
lilne Cut. He spent Christmas eve and
Chiistmas day in the house of
Wm. L, Hill, a mile or two from ludepnii
ilencc, and then returned to town. On Ihe
ml he was taken before Jtidze Krekel, of
the United States District Court, In Kansas
(My, by whom he was remanded back to
hi- bondsmen, on tbe ground tbat as the
Slate authorities were the first to obtain
possession of the prisoner tbey were en
tilled to hold him until no longer wanted.
When taken with tbe present attack of
pneumonia a few days ago, he removed
to the residence of bis father-in-law, Col.
Sam Ralston, near Independence.
THE CRIMES CUAHUED TO HIM.
Should James survive and succeed in
h ivtaig all the charges against bim in this
state dismissed, be would be turned over
to the United States authorities, and the
charge of the Mussel Shoals, Ala., robbery
would be prosecuted against bim. Failure
to convict him of tbat crime would prob
ably be followed by s requisition from tho
Minnesota authorities who claim to be able
to make out a caso against bim for par

LowKLt, Mass., Jan. 9. About two
miles from Andover. and perhaps five
miles fioui Lowell, stands an old stone
church that has sten a hundred years flit
over id foot, and In tbe neighboring grave
yard i e pose tbe respected bones of genuine
descendant of the Plymouth pilgrims.
Mntil within tbe last few weeks this re
jpvcuble old edifice and its surroundings
were considered eminently gutlulesn and
innocuous, but about December 1 a decid
ed sensation was created by the appearance
ot what was culled a bona fide ghost. A
sheeted spectie bad appeared a number of
times in the road leading past the grave
yuid, and bad frightened many horses and
moiv men almost
OUT of thkir wits.
On several occasions tbe apparition was
given chase by adventurous rustics, but It
always succeeded In eluding their grasp
and disappeared in some mysterious man
ner within the church-tower a solid struc
ture, riving Borne fifty feet Irom the grouud
tbe top surmounted with a bell said to bave
been I' tst from Lord Cornwallis' cannon.
Dr. N was hastily summoned to An
dover about 9 o'clock last Sunday night to
attend a patient In the last stages of disso
lution. About midnight he set out upon
hi- return to Lowell. As be neared the
gruv-yard of the old stone church a figure
in m Liie suddenly appeared at his horse's
hetd. A negro driver, accompanied the
doctor, and, throwing bis reins to bim, be
gave chase to tbe apparition. Up tbe
road it fled wltb tbe doctor in hot
pursuit. Twice he almost bad the
ipcctre in his grasp, and each time in
BOMB UNCANNY MANNER
it eluded bim. Tbey neared tbe church,
tuii Just at the door leading to tbe belfry
the i host disappeated. Nothing daunted,
the doctor followed. Up the step be
climbed, and at tbe very summit be came
upon the fleeing figure. He seized It by
tbe throat, when, lot be discovered tbat be
bad a gibbering maniac In bis bands. It
was a farmer whose name be ascertained
was Lcroy, a Frenchman, who for some
time hail been In the habit of stealing out
ot his daughter's bouse nearby and prac
ticing ghostly pranks upon bis neighbors.
Everybody knew that Leroy was out of bis

in Lowell and its surroundings estimated
it 400,000. Dr. N. says tbat Leroy has
