Qalnlaa ConcluJea to Tlk Col. Bel
knap's Horrible Theory What a New
York Man Knows of tbo Accused.
Chicago, July k7. Mrs. Patrick Quin
lan has lost her defiant spirit in the po
lice inquisition. Two days of "sweat
box" experience proved more than she
could bear with equanimity, and she told
the police things which before had not
been acknowledged. It resulted in mak
ing the police, more than ever suspicious
ot her husband and the part he took in
Holmes' mysterious business. Chief of
Police Badenoch Inst night said: "The
evidence secured from Mrs. Qainlan is
highly important. She confessed to abet
ting Holmes in insurance swindles, and
that is a step in the right direction. Pat
rick Qainlan up to this hour firmly pro
tests that he was mere a hiriing and did
not know of Holmes' affairs at alL
Helped Holms to dwindle.
"Mrs. Quintan's evidence was that after
Mrs. Conner disappeared it became neces
sary for Holmes to produco her to collect
some insurance. Mrs. Qutnlan consonted
to act in her place. She wont to tho in
surance office and swore she was Mrs.
Conner and signed that nanin. I think
she woa wanted in tho collection of tire
Insurance that was secured by fraud.
This opens tho way to other deals, which
it is necessary to know to fasten the guilt
of many of tho supposed murders." Mrs.
Quintan is locked up in a cell at the Har
rison street station.
Col. Belknap Has a Theory.
According to tho statements of Jona
than L. Belknap it was Christmas night
four years ana six months ago that Mrs.
Julia L. Conner was killed. He bslicvos
sho was asphyxiated in her room while
she slept. Her room was a small one ad
joining tho dark bath room in tho
"Castle." When all was still in tho
house Holaics switched on the gas. When
tiio deed was accomplished Holmes
stealthily admitted himself through tho
secret door of tho bathroom. He lifted
the inanimato form of Mrs. Connor from
the bed and carriod it to tho bath room.

Then placing tho body iu tho bathtub
ho proceeded to cut ic to pieces and ted
them to a hot lire in tho stove. When all
was dono he took tho oshos and parts that
had not bjan entirely burned and buried
tiiem in n mass of quicklime in the cellar.
Colonel li-.'lknap is tho uncle of tho father
of tho Wilmette wife of Holmes. He says
he and his wife spent Christmas with
Holmes, and he helped Holmes to carry,
the now famous stove through a secret
trapdoor into tho bathroom adjoining
Mrs. Connor's room. That night, ho
claims, Mrs. Connor disappeared.
There Are Ten oa the List.
According to the roports up to date
thoro arc ten persons on Holmes' death
list now, six of whom ore women, two
girls, ono man and a bay, as follows: 15.
F. Pitz.-I, Howard Pitzel (boy), Ida and
Alice (girls). Miunio and Annie
Williams, Emiiy Cigrunde, Mrs. Conner

ii. H. Holmes, the swindler and sus
pected murderer, is now living in this
city. When first seen by a World re
porter he was unwilling to talk, but
finally said: "Holmes had in his employ
a man named Patrick Qainlan. This
man seemed to bo Holmes' bodyguard. I
havo frequently heard both Quinlan and
Holmes accusw each other ut intimacy
with Mrs. Conner. Gcrtrudo Conner was
a tall, rather good looking blonde, aud
seemed a typical gushing country girl of
abnutV'l She was continually with
Holmii, though to my knowledge sho
never worked for him.
"Ono day Holmes c.imo to tho office and
asked mo for advice in regard to her con
dition. I told him that ho ought to do
something, and a while afterward he
said that ho would glvo her some medi
cine. On Saturday, about a month later
Gertrude camo to the office, aud Holmes
being out toid mo that she was going
home to a town in Iowa (I don't think it
was Muscatine), and said good-bye.
"On tbo Wednesday following, as I to
member it. Holmes camo to the office and
said that ho had got a letter from Gertie's
mother, saying tbat Gertrudo was doad.
I wheeled right around in my chair and
said: 'Holmes, you have killed her.' He
turned it off in the suave way ot his, say
