Kew Okleans. La, March & Thir.ga
gre looking decidedly blue for the Ital
ians who are on trial here for the ass is
nination of Superintendent of Police D. C.
Heunesey, w ho was sLot down at hison
jonr some months ago, about mid nig ut.
The crime is charged to the Italian Maiin,
ami a numlier of alleged members of that
ji-isiiiatioti society are oq triaL 1 ho
e-,-i,!ence so far is very direct again t sev
eral o! tie prisoners, but during the ealy
ptrt of yesterday's session things took a
stirtlins; turn, and a partial confessiou by
cMofilie accused threw the court room
into a state of intense excitement. M.in
,1 1 Politz, the n ost ill-favored of the n.ne
iri!4iners at the bar, expressed his desire
to make a statement. As he can not
sjieak English au interpreter was need.!,
and though two of his fellow prisoners
proffere.l their services, Politz refused to
l.ilk tu them.
Women implicated in the Crime.
He was taken into the judge's privite
office, where a consultation was held wan
tbe assistance of an interpreter. The news
thitt Politz was making a confession ran
t!mu$;h the court room like wildfire, nd
ttie information spread through the city
in short order. Pending the return of
Politz to the court room his fellow prison
ers, dreading what to them was yet un
known, and anticipating the worst, ware
removed to the dock. The confession as
t.iken down by the official stenographer is
as yet unknown, but from what can hn
learned Politz claimed that he was inao
cent, and that there were women impli
cated in the scheme to kill Hennessey.
Dividing the Blood Money.
He stated that there had been a meet ng
of the conspirators sometime before tie
night of the murder (Oct. 15) in a houst- in
it. Phillip street, occupied by a nian
named Buffet's, and that later on a second
meeting took place near the Poydras n.ar
kft. Here in his presence the blood money
was divided among the gang and it vas
agreed on who should do tbe killing. He
diil not say who had given the money nor
who i i ad been selected to fire the guns.
Hi- tiiri-ment was an incoherent on?, but
is regarded as proof enough to call fcr a
hanging p.-irty. The attorney for the de
fense declined to proceed further in Po
lity's behalf, and it was agreed that the
court appoint a special attorney to repre
sent the man.
Identifying the Prisoner.
In order to give the lawyer, Charles
Thenrd, a chance to consult with his cli
ent the court adjourned until 7 o'clock.
The status of the case is a peculiar cne.
The prisoner has made what the state c ills
a confession, yet, despite this fact, it is
propo-ed to place him on trial, and use
his own confession against him. At the
evening session testimony was given iden
tifying four of the prisoners as having
t iken part in the shooting of Hennessey.

pair of blankets. But a tunnel about the
size of a man's body led out of it, and
wnile Hyan guarded the entrance a jo
hceman commenced chopping through the
dining room floor to find the other end of
the tunnel. As he st ruck the second I low
a voice sung out: "Hold on! I will ive
in," and Graham slowly backed himself
out into the cave, where Iiyan captured
him. Two luuded revolvers were fouud
