Chicago, Nov. St. As the long job of
obtaining a jury to give Dan Coughlin,
the alleged Cranio murderer, a new trial
as ordered by the state supreme court
comes to a close the question of hi re-con-victiun
comes to the front; and in view of
the dispersal of witnesses since the origi
nal trial it has been feared that the prison
er would escape tbU time. But the state
prosecutor was never more confident of
convicting an accused man than he is at
present iu Dan Coughlin' case, basing
his confidence on new evidence which has
come to light.

whereabouts on tbe night of the murder
was a mat tr of question with the detec

Now Andrew Foy and his wife do not
get on together and tbe wife and husband
nave separated. Tbe trouble which has
culminated in this separation was in the
bud at the time of Cronin's murder. Re
ferring to the value of hex latest testi
mony State Attorney Kern says: "I will
not only convict Dan Cooghlin to a cer
tainty, but feel morally certain of con
victing two other men whose names have
never heretofore been mentioned in connec
tion with the case aud whose arrest, I
promie you, will be one of the most sen
sational incideuts in this celebrated case."
Mrs. Foy has been of value to tbe state
in the caae before, but this late testimony
is by far the most important she has ever

It should not be supposed that hereto

that it was tlie assassination of Dr. Cronin.

two 'other men who were prominent in
these ccunci'is, but have hitherto escaped

date ff the doctor's murder, Andrew Foy

turning in the early morning. Ilisclothts
were cavered with mud and there were
stains on them in many planes. His shoes,
also, looked as if he had been wading
through a t-wamp. 1 asked him how he
bad got his clothes in such a condition.
but he told me not to be so inquisitive
about matters that did not concern me.
This is the story that Mrs. Foy told tbe
stale attorney, and in addition she gave
the names of the two men who were ire
oueutersof the weekly meetings. These
men are accessible at any time, and wiien
tbe proper chain dl evidence is prepared
will be takeu iuto custody.
There is another story going tbe rounds
that looks somewhat fishy, bnt is declared
true by Captain Schuettler, of the police
force. It is to the effect that two weeks
before Cronin was murdered a grave was
dug for bis body and a farmer tells tbe

Jumped into the buggy and it drove off.
Then tbe farmer began an exploration
of the wood, aud soon came across a newly
dug grave, seven feet deep, and near it a
blue blouse and overalls. He wondered
what it all meant, but it soon faded from
his mind, and even when the Cronin mur
der occurred did not connect the incident
with it. as tbe doctor's body was found in
a catch basin. Shortly after the Cronin
trial tbe farmer was fa Chicago, and while
walking on Clark street with a friend saw
