of His Former Attorneys, Whtoh Is
Philadelphia, Ost. 29?Ik became
apparent to-night that the plctureique
and startling features of H. H Holmes'
career was not to be confined to bis
dOBtructivo wandorlngs over the Amer
lean continent, for with each successive
day comos something atill more Btrange
Yesterday bo dismissed his counsol
and began to try his own case beoause
tbe court refused to grant the plea made
by them for a continuance. The; loft
the court In spite of Judge Arnold's
threats to disbar them and religiously
kep. away. To-night, after righting
tooth and;nallslnglohanded against the
tremendous machinery of the common?
wealth and the apparently complete
chain of evidence which has been forged
I arour.d him bo threw up bis hands and
8)nt for Bis law yore, Messrs. Shoemaker
Then ho told the court what ho had
done, and a reluctant consent to their
continuing with the defense was given.
There waB an impression that thiB was
but another pice of by-play following
Holmes' personal failure to catch the
sympathy of the court and jury by mak?
ing himself out a much wronged man,
forcod to fight alone what may prove to
be his lass battle, in spite of hla Igno?
rance of the technicalities of the law
and hin alleged physical infirmity.
At 10 o'clcck the jury was brought
into the room and court was formally
opened. The day's proceedings were bo
gun by District Attornoy Graham, who
arose and said to the court: "I desire to
aay to the court, in view of what was
a*td last night before the adjournment
of court, that the lady known as Miss
Yoko and Mrs. Howard was sent for,
saw the prisoner and had ample oppor?
tunity for an interview with him."
This in the woman concerning whom
thero was a warm passago at arms last
evening between Mr. Graham and
Holmes, the latter declaring that the
woman was his wife, and that Mr. Gra?
ham hsd done all in his power to separ?
When Mr. Graham conoluded Holmes
said that he had only bad a three
minute Interview with the woman, and
asked that it be renewed during the
noon recess. His request was granted.
Jeannette Pioizel, "Dessa," the
daughter of tbe dead man, was tbe first
wltnoss called. She was called merely
to identify leveral largo crayons of her
father, which she did.
Eugene Smith, who found Pietzel'a
body in a Callowbill Btreet bouBe on
September 4, 1804, then told a detailed
story of his discovery, which baa already
been fully publlahod. He had become
acquainted with the dead man on
August 22, 1804, through business con?
cerning paten;.o, which Pietzal was sup?
posed to have hold. Ho saw him sev?
eral times during thn following week.
WitnesB drew a pacUot of papers from
his pecket whon he cimn to the dates.
Holmes objected to nls referring to
them unloBS they were In his own hand?
writing. Smith admitted that tbe
papers had boon "prepared," and the
court sustained the objection.
Smith said that during his first visit
to l'ii ' /. 'I, whom ho knew by the name
of Percy, HoIoipb came in, and, giving a
nod or sign to Pletxel, went upatalrs.
A moment later Pietzel excused him
self and followed him. He roturned
very shortly, but Holmes remained up
Btairs The witness was present when
the corpse of Pletzal was exhumed from
the Potters' Field, and was them first
introduced.to Holmes. Lawyer Howe,
of Sr.. Louie, Alice Ple'zsl, the voting
daughter, and the insurance officers
Tuo body was recognized by ;tho wit?
ness as Pie z-jiV. Holmes offered S30
to have tbo corpse cremated and asked
Howe about it. Tee lawyer answered
that the widow would first have to be
consulted. Holmes told tbe insurance
peoplo of tbe marka of identification
and after tbe body had been dug up he
pulled out a lance and cut a wart and
other marks from the corpse. At this
time witness had recognized Holmes as
the man he had seen go upstairs in the
Callowblll street house.
Holmes, on cross-examination, asked
a number of immaterial questions, but
showed much legal skill In their con?
Dr. Wm. J. Scott waa called, and at
this juncture Holmes asked to have all
witnesses, except the one on the stand,
excluded from the room
Mr. Graham objected io this and
Judge Arnold upheld the dlBtrict attor?
ney. Holmes asked for and was granted
an exception to the ruling. Holmes
compromised by asking that the wit?
nesses conneoted with the murder of
Benjamin F. Pielzed be excluded. This
was gramed him, and as Holmes called
out the names of these wltnoases, they
loft the room.
After the witnesses bad all left the
room, Holmes asked if his wife waa to
be a witness. "She is not in the court?
room," said tbe prosecutor, "and I de?
cline to sav whether or not she will be
a witness "
Dr. Scott was then permitted to tell
his story, which concerned his having
been called in to examine Pietzel'a body,
after its discovery. Ho explained tbe
situation of the room and the arrange?
ment of thn windows so that tbo sun
rays would fall upon the corpse and
hasten decomposition and dwelt upon
tbo d(s-"cov*Tv of chloroform in the
Btom*.sh nr.d said large quantities of the
drug had been used and from the con?
gested condition of tho lungs and tbe
empty heart It was apparent that the
man had met a sudden and violent death
from chloroform poisoning.
I Holmes subjected Dr. Scott to a
lengthy and detailed examination touch?
ing the eileets of chloroform, and tho
calmness with which Holmes volubly
exchanged technical terms and dis?
cussed ohumicil and medical possibili?
ties with the doctor was admirable.
At the conclusion of Dr. Scott's testi?
mony Dr. William K Mattern, the
coroner's physlolan, was called. Dr.
Mattern Bald'he had made tho cost-mor?
tem examination at the morgue on Sep?
tember 4, and the conditions were the
same as described by Dr. Scott.
Dr. Henry Leffmann, the well-known
analytical ohemlat, was tho next wit?
ness. In answer to Mr. Qraham'a ques?
tions,' he said it was impossible for a
man to fix himself in an attitude as re?
poseful as that in which Pietzel's body
was disc vared after having adminis
ered chloroform to hlmidlf.
The evening *esBion began a few
moments after 7 o'clock. The taking
of testimony was about to ho resumed
when BolmeB asked if be could have the
aervlces of Messrs. Shoemaker and
Rotan, his former counsel. "Let them
come in," Bald the judge.
A moment later tho two counsellors,
looking pale and worried, entered tho
courtroom and Mr. Rotan, going up to
the bar, was about to entor upon an ex?
planation,when Judgo Arnold curtly in?
terrupted with "No apology necessary.
Go on with the caso." The docli, with
itB occupant, was then moved baok to
its former place and Holmes' counsel
took seats at the desk. William
Moeblus, who, at the time of the mur?
der was employed aa a bartender at a
saloon, was called to toll of Pietzel's
A HORRIBLE Ai 1AIK.
A Negro Rapist Confesses the Crime and
Is Ilurned to Death.
Gai.veston, Tex., Oct. 2'.).?A special
to the News from Kilgore, Tex., says:
At a point about four miles from Tyler,
a Mrs. Roll, who had been visiting her
mother a short distance from homo, wan
on her return, when she mot a negro
named iienry Milliard, who outraged
and then murdered her.
The ground shows that she struggled
for her honor and the conditions of the
body told of a cruelty that has only
been equalled by "Jack, tho Ripper."
After outraging her tho negro deliber?
ately cut her throat and thou, taking
his knife, ripped up her body. A poBse
was quickly organized and, aided by a
hound, tracked the nogro to within four
mlloB of this place, where they found
him asleep in a cotton pen. The negro's
clothing was still covered with blood,
which ho had attempted to wash off.
Soon after tho oillcers had him hand?
cuffed a mob of some hundred men,
heavily armed, arrived on tbo sei ne,
and demanded the immediate surrender
of the prisoner, which was readily
given. The mob thon left for the scene
of the murder, whore they arrived thia
afternoon at 3 o'clock.
The crowd oontinued to gather at .the
scone of the horrible orlme until nearly
2,000 citizens of Tyler and vicinity were
there. A few moments buforo the fiend
was brought to the place a meeting was
held and a oommitteo appointed to in?
vestigate his identity. Witnesses were
summoned and closely Interrogated.
The result was a thorough identification.
In a few moments an officer ap?
proached from over the hill, followed
by 300 determined and well-armed men.
When near the scene tho officers were
overpowered and disarmed and the
negro, Henry Milliard, brought baforo
the committee. Ho made a full con?
fession in Eubstance as followE*.
"I was coming down tho road and saw
Mrs. Bell in the road. Sho was scared
of me and I knew that if I passed
her she would say I tried to rape her
and I concluded that I would rape her
and then kill her. I cut bor throat and
cutber in another placo and left."
He wrote a note to his wife and gave
it to the sheriff. It read as follows: "I
am arrested by 'Wig' Smith. You know
what they will do with me. If I do not
seo you any more, good bye."
After his confession and through
identity, a vote was taken as to the
made of punishment.
It was unanimously agreed to burn
him, and it was agroed that he should
sutler tho penalty on the public square.
Tho line of march was taken up towards
Tyler, and at 4 o'clock the line entered
the main plaza where no less than 7,000
people were assembled Large crowds
of iadies and children were assembled
A scaffold was erected in the centro
of the square. Wagons laden with
kindling wood, coal oil and straw were
driven to the Bcene and plactd in po?
sition. The negro was then given an
opportunity to speak, but his words
were inaudible, but when he offored up
his last prayer his words could be heard
for sevetal blocks. He was then lashed
to the coon rail that extended through
Mr. Bell, husband of the murdered
lady, applied the match and the names
shot upwards, enveloping the brute in
sheets of fire. He begged for mercy
and it wbb meted out to him just as he
was meroiful to the innocent woman
whoso ?out he had sent to Heaven at
thia hour yesterday. It waa determined
to burn him at once, but the fire was
quenched and then after a few moments
was started again.
From the time the match was applied
until hia death was exactly fifty min?
utes. Hundreds of negroes wltnessod

groes expressed their endorsement of
the punlBhment. The officers wero
powerless and the Baeriff wired tho
