Dilligent effort on tho part of a
score of detectives from headquar
ters did not make much headway in
the solution of the problem of how
the body of thc Greek priest, Father
Casper Haran, or Vatiarian, as the
police records have it, came to be
found doubled up in a trunk in a va
cant room at 333 West Thirty-seven
th street, New York, Sunday May
26. Two men, and possibly four,
whom the police believe to be impli
cated in the murder have not yet
The developments have brought
forth two facts which may uncover
the motive of thc murder and clear
away to some extent the doubt con
cerning how and when the priest met
his death. Most important of these
discoveries is the fact that Father
Casper was a politician as well as a
cleric, and that he had close alliance
with one of thc American secret rev
olutionary societies in this city.
It was learned that very recently
there had been a split, in thc ranks
of the revolutionary workers of the
local Armenian colony, and that
much bad blood had been engender
ed between the two factions.
Vahram Sopossion, an Armenian,
who has a restaurant at 137 East
Twenty-sixth street, and a number
of Armenians gathered there ex
plained to a reporter just what re
lation the affairs of the Honchekis
or Henchagain society may be found
to bear with the murder of Father
Casper when the hidden facts in thc
case are brought to light.
Throughout all Europe and in
America wherever there is a suffi
ciently large colony of loyal Armen
ians branches of the Honchekis have
been established. The order is pure
ly a revolutionary one, and the avow
ed object is to free Armenia and
neighboring Christian countries from
the rule of the Turks. The New York
branch of the society had been es
tablished .some time ago, said the
Armenian restaurant keeper, and had
worked many years in harmony until
two months ago.
Serpossian said that as a member
of the new branch of the society he
could not enter into details of the
split, but feeling was high and there
was still bitter recrimination and ac
cusation of unfaithful passing be
tween the two branches of the revo
SIMES HAVE BEEN SLAIN.

in this country spies have been dis

ian society whose duty it has been to

"There have been spies in our own
number/' and Terpossian. "The ac
cusation of spy has been made mem
bers of our society."
"Was the priest a spy?"
"If he was a spy he died like oth
ers have died before him who have
been spies," was the answer the Ar
._J The restaurant keeper and his com
panions were asked if Father Casper
had been a member of the Honche
kis. They said that he had, but they
would not specify which branch of
the recently divided society he be
BITTER TOWARD PRIEST.
"Father Casper had a bad reputa
tion," continued the speaker for the
. group. "He was known to be mis
erly and to prefer to beg his bread
ami bed than work for it. We have
always known him as a man who loit
ered around and did as little as pos
sible for a living. He had the repu
tation of being no good."
The second fact brought out in tho
investigations which forced the de
tectives to revise their theories of
the time and place where Father
Caspar was murdered is that he was
seen alive at 12 o'clock noon on Wed
nesday and in the restaurant of the
man Serpossian, who is strong in his
condemnation of the dead priest's
According to this man's story, the
priest came to his place of business
alone and carrying with him the
black hand bag which he always took
with him on his wandering through
the city. When he left tho restaurant
about noon he said he was going up
town to meet some friends.

MYSTERY BE( ?OM RS DEEPER.
Mrs. Scherer say the priest in the
company of Hie two at 8 o'clock in
the morning, in the hallway of the
Scherer Hat, on the third floor of tile
tenement at 333 West Thirty-seven

the detect ives she was sure! that she
saw Sarkis, one of her lodgers, and
a strange man coming upstairs, to

body was ii. 'li trunk that Mrs. Sch

Now that it has been developed
that the priest was soon alive at 12
o'clock at 137 Fast Twenty-sixth
Street, the puzzle Of bow and where
hal lier Caspar's murders did him to
death is deepened. Wilbin three
hours, at most, after Serpossian, thc
restaurant, keeper, saw the prest, his
body.wan coiled up in a trunk at a
place fully three miles away.
An examination of the records in
the Adams Express 0 ill ce shows that
the trunk weighed 146 pounds, just

ls HUM Expanded Until It In Now
Found in livery Civilized Country
of thc World.
Some few weeks ago there was a
great gathering of masons in Atlan
ta to lay the corner stone of a grand
temple in that city. The Atlanta
Journal says this great gathering of
Masons directs special attention to
the oldest and most noble fraternal
organization in the world, which now
numbers its membership by the mil
lion in all the civilized countries of
the world. The Journal goes on to
Secret societies, having the fath

Free and Accepted Masons, lt is a
guild which can afford to look down
with indulgent patronage on all the
other guilds and crafts, howeuer an
cient may be their charters.
The origin of Masonry is lost in
the remotest period of thc past. Tra
dition has ascribed it to the building
of Solomon's temple, and it is alleg
ed to have bad a leading part in
the construction of the pyramids.
That there is more than a more ba
sis of truth for the former claim is
practically undented, though it is
not denied that the order has been
materially modified since that era of
As soon as mankind evolved from
hit- nomadic habits of life and began
to erect fixed bodies, the mason, as.
an artisan, began to come into re
quest. He was necessarily a man of
skill and combined something of the
architect with his craftsmanship.
As the Christian civilization spread
over the earth,*particularly in Eu
rope and in England, magnificent
cathedrals arose as the expression
of tho pious devotion of the people
An adequate idea of their size and
magnificence may be easily gathered
from such of them as still remain,
and one may readily understand that
in the building of them men of the
highest skill were required.
Some of the oriental forms and
ceremonies which had been their
birth in the days of Solomon, un
doubtedly came down through the
ages, but it was at the period when
artisans of every craft were organiz
ing their respective guilds that ac
tive masonry acquired its regular or
ganization in something like the form
in which we find it today.
But there were necessary condi
tions which differentiated the masons
from all other crafts. The weavers,
tho drapers, the goldsmiths could
each attach themselves to a given lo
cality like London. They had their
guildhalls where they met and inter
mingled and it was an easy matter
for them to know and remember
* Not so with the masons. From the
very nature of their service they were
called upon to travel from one eity.
to another, to build a cathedral at
York or an abbey at Kilwinning.
Signs and pass words wore devised
that the liveried members of the
craft might make themselves known
to one another and claim hospitality
from their fellow-craftsmen as they
It was perhaps from this circum
stance that the arcana of Masonry
was first devised. These were per
fected and elaborated by Elias Ash
mole and his literary associates In thc
early part of the seventeenth cen
tury, and from that time may be da
ted the masonry of today.
Charles II and William lil were ma
sons, and the visible connection with
operative masonry was kept up by
the selection of Sir Christopher
Wren, architect of St. Paul's cath
edral as grand master.
While it is not necessary to go in
detail, it may be said incidentally
that the lodges of Scotland trace
their origin to foreign masons who
caine to North Britian in 1150 to
build Kilwinning Abbey, while the
English lodges go still further back
and assign their origin to the assem
blage of masons held by St. Alban
York in illifi. Such differences as ex
isted were arranged in 1813, and tho
fraternity has since been managed by
the United Grand Lodge of Ancient
Free and Accepted Masons of Eng
A century before that time, how

Soon after it became known that
Boeck had disappeared she came here
and sought the offices of Marsellus,
Pitt &Co., asking for him there. On
a (inger she showed a diamond and
emerald ring. It was recognized by
the clerk who responded to her call.
Inadvertently he mentioned that
Boeck had not paid for the ring. The
Pittsburg girl tore the ring from ber
Unger and threw it upon the table
before her, bursting into tears.
She was to have been married to
Boeck last February, but the wedding
had been delayed. She had loaned
him $10,000 in cash and he had given
as security for the notes the same
porcelains be had used with others.
The young Pittsburg woman appear
ed terribly distressed when she learn

cried that the. money she had given
to thc diamond broker was nothing.
She wanted to find him. She was not
told that Boeck had a wife.

Remarkable Utterances of Paul
Says Science lins Proved tho Exist

. ?ct Alono. ?
George M. Searie, rector of the
Pauligt Fathers' Catholic church New
York, caused a sensation by his ser
mon last Sunday morning in which
he declared his belief in spiritism.
Thursday he consented to elaborate
his views, as follows:
"What I wished my audience to
understand is, in tho first place, that
though there will, of course, be
found here and there in spiritistic
seances some attempts at fraud or
trickery, particularly where there is
money to be made by it, phenomena
often occur in them which cannot be
accounted for in this way.
"These have been carefully exam
ined by scientific men, and those who
have done so agree that those phe
nomena indicate forces entirely be
yond our normal powers and it is
practically certain that these forces
are directed by intelligence which
are not of this world. Tho only ques
tion is, what are these intelligences?
"They pretend to be deceased hu
man souls, and support their preten
sions by what are called "proofs of
identity.' That is they know many
events in the earthly life of those
whom they represent which could not
naturally be known to the uiedium
or others wdio had not been acquaint
ed with them personally. But they
fail in other points which ought to
be as well known, if they really were
what they pretend.
"Furthermore, they fail to agree
in their description of their present
state, in their teachings about God,
about Christ, and religious matters
generally. Truth should agree with
itself; falsehood, whether coming
from ignorance or malice, will dis
agree. It, therefore, appears that
these intelligences are not what they
claim to be; and it seems more prob
able that they are deceitful than that
they are ignorant.
"Besides, their control of a medi
um, when habitual, has been known
to culminate in what is called diabol
ic possession; and in no case does it
seem to have had a good moral ef
"Also, the spirits communicating
seem to have a dread of spirits and
of the rites of the Catholic church. I
know specially of one ease in which
a pnest, going incognito to a seance
for investigation, was requested by
them not use holy water.
"On account of all these reasons,
as well as of the distinct prohibition
in Scripture (Dent, xviii: 2) of such
performances, which are by no means
merely modern, the church is abso
lutely opposed to them, and considers
them as extremely dangerous to our
Dr. Searle is a man of high scien
tific attainments, and his name is as
sociated with astronomical research
and discovery among savants all over

gregational minister in Boston and
has ?cen connected with Harvard
observatory and with the observa
tory at Georgetown college. He as
serts positively that spirits can be
communicated with tlnough medi
ums, and believes that these spirits
are evil ones-fallen angels-who
have never inhabited a human body.
Dr. Searle said that in his sermon
that only ignorant persons now deny
the existence of spirits and the pos

with them. He is a member of the
Society for Physical Research and a
friend of Father Paupert, who show

lost human souls subject to devils in
hell. These devils are not confined
in their operation to a local hell. Such
may be the ease after general judg
ment, bul not now.
Warning his bearers against exper
