Holmes said that lit hud only had a three minute interview with tho woman, and asked that It be renewed during1 tho noon recess. His request was granted. Then the prisoner asked that a plan he produced of the ( alio wh ill street house where ho Is believed to have murdered Pietzel.

At ed! torial appeared yesterday in the Kven; ing Monitor, Senator Chandler's paper, written by the Senator and headed: 'Our Coming War with England. '' II Buys in p;.rt: '"War between the Tinted States and Kngland is inevita ble. It will arise on account of Urit ish disregard for our direct interests. It will also be forced by Hritish en croachments upon other nations all over tho world. It will be fought by us, having Uussia as our European ully. A a war offensive on our part, it may not happen in twenty years. As a defensive war it may come sooner and should be welcomed.' One sure re Kult will be the capture and pertna- nent acquisition of Cauada by too United Slates. "England proposes to seize from tho United States a portion of Alaska. Siie is destroying independent govern ments In all parts of the globe. She treats American sentiment and re monstrance wlih insolence and de fiance. For the vindication of tho Monroe uoctriuo in the Western Hem 'isphere and tho protection of these in dependent governments iu the Eastern i Hemisphere and the lslaudH of the ocean it is neceitary that the United States should prepare for war with England. It had better come now und be over than twenty years from now. A million of men and muskets will overrun Canada and England's com mercial ship will be swept from tho ocean. Let England ucarin. We ought to bt'gin if it is necessary to have the Venezuelan territory at the mouth of the Orinoco," W'Asin.vcrox, Oct. 31;. Kx-Postmas-tor-deueral Don M. Dickinson is quoted as saying that the president might anticipate his message to con gress by outlining through tho me dium of a letter to a personal friend, or an Interview, the administration's foreign policy. A cabinet oflicer said to-day that thltt course was not con templated. When congress assembles, all the correspondence between this country audOreat Hritain will be sub mitted. The cou n try may rest assu red that it will prove to be all that the mobt natriotic citizen could wish. A HEAVY SHORTAGE. I' I'rcuaiirrr Jlogij of Turuma, Wit)i., Ill 1m lit 1 00,000. , Sax FnANctHco, Oct. 3D. A Tacoma dispatch to the Chronicle says that ex City Treasurer Hoggs, who held oBico f rom . two to lfj'Jl, is an embezzler to the extent of 5lO!i,00() and that the bherifl is on the road to Jacksonville, Ore., tourrest him. The recent bank failures at Tacoma disclosed the fact that lioggs, while treasurer, deposited a large number of city warrants in the banks receiv ng credit as cash. The warrants so deposited are Mip posed to aggregate St-'l J.OOa The (ieriiiaii-Americau and Colum bian .National bank have brought suit to have their accounts with the city offset with these warrants, claiming them to be Illegal because issued in excess of legal Indebtedness. Tim city's deposit in theso banks aggre gates glO-.'.OOO cash, and if their con tention is upheld it is claimed the city would lose that amount, us it would bo morally bound to validate and pay these warrants. Thet-e facts led to a close investigation of Hoggs' alleged warrant transactions by the city ollicials and prosecuting attorney with the result that it was decided Saturday to put him on trial. Just bow the sum of $li)'.,(on, the alleged stolen amount, is arrived at, cannot be told, as the oHicials w ill not talk until the arrest is made. A LATE CONVENTION. Nrnntor Carter IllnU Thnt the l.nnt of June My He Sclortnl. Wasiiinutox, Oct. 2'J. Senator Car ter, chairman of the Republican Na tiunal committee, said to-day as to, the probable time of holding the next Republican convention, that he had not conferred with the other mem tiers of the committee in regard to the date, but as six months' notice must be given after the meeting of the com mittee, the convention could not be called earlier than about the middle of June. Ho thought, however, that it would bo the general desire to have the convention not meet until after the adjournment of congress, and he did not think it probable that conirress would be ready lo adjourn until about the iniodlu of June. A fair inferel'.eo from Senator Car ter's remarks -is that the convention would not be railed to meet earlie than the lust of June.

Walker, commander-in-chief of the 0. A. K., when asked what he thought of the proposed mass meeting in this city to express sympathy with the Cubans. "Some of the best friends 1 ever ha I have offered up their lives in attempts to free Cuba from the yoke of Spain. I received a letter u few days ago from a committee at Chicago which desires to have general Cuban meetings beid all over the country on October 31. Tho committee asked tne to issue a general order to the U. A. It. for the posts to meet and give expression to the Cuban movement. I answered that it was entirely unnecessary, as the soldiers of thisland are quite capa ble of expressing- themselves on all patriotic subjects." Aiitaullcil a tliamliiTiiiD.il!.

The girl was found some time later in a seriour. condition. The police force and the sheriff and deputies have so far failed to find Wilson, and fear that he has escaped from the city.

Oct .'it In tho flolmes trial this morning after two unimportant witnesses had testified, O. Laforest Perry, asssistant to the pres ident of the Fidelity Mutual Life as sociation, was then called. This Is the company that was swindled out of $10,000, for which I'ietzel's life was insured, and it was Perry who began the investigation into the conspiracy, lie first identified the policy issued, in which Carrie E. I'ietzel, the widow, is beneficiary. It was dated November J'J, I8!)3. Next lie identified a receipt for $'J,7l").H.ri, the amount of the policy, less expenses paid to and receipted for by Jeptha I). Howe, the St. Louis at torney, who represented Mrs. PietzeL This was dated September 24,' 1801. Perry was present when Howe received the money. When Holmes came to this city at the re-q-est of the company to identi ty tho body, Howe and Alice Pletzel Jwere in the olllce. Holmes came in afterwards and was introduced to them. He and Howe met as strangers, but ho said that lie had met Alice beforti anil the remem bered him. After the payment of the mon?y the matter wa closed, until a letter ivas received by President Kousi! of the. insurance company from Super intendent of Police Jlarrlgan of St. Louis. Tlits contained the declaration of Hedgpeth, the train robber, that while in jail in St. Lonifj he had over heard Holmes and Pietzcl talking of forming a conspiracy to defraud an in surance company out of 810,000 by the substitution of a corpse for Pietzcl. Inspector Cray of the insurance com pany was sunt to St. Louis and inter viewed Hmigpcth. On the information tnus obt-.iined, a warrant was sworn out for Holmes ou tiie charge of con spiracy, und upon this he was arrested in Boston. The witness said that when he met Holmes in IJoston, in the presence of Heputy Superintendent Hanscom, Chief of Police Watts and John Corn ish, a private detective, in Chief Watts' office, the following conversa tion took place: '! asked him where Mrs. Pietzel was and he replied that he did not care to tell. Then I asked him where Pietzcl was and he said he was in South America or on his way there, and the boy, Howard, was with him. Alice and Nellie, he said, were in London with Minnie Willitiuis. He said he had given Howard to his father in Detroit and had' sent Nellie and Alice from Toronto on a train on which he rode a short distance to meet M nnie Williams either at Iu f f do or Niagara Falls I forget which." Inspector William Oray of the in surance company told of a trip to Sc. Louis where ho had procured Herig feth's statement. This was produced but not yet introduced in evidence. In consequence of it the fiction against II dmes was begun, lie cated in Ogdeusburg, N, Prescott," Canada, then points in New Hampshire was first lo , Y., then at at varn.us , Burlington, t,, and lioston. Orrington N. Han-.com, deputy su perintendent of police of Hoiton, di rected Holmes' arrest on a telegram from Fort Worth. Texas, saying he was wanted there for the "larceny of one horse." Holmes smiled at this. When arrested Holme said he did not want to go to Fort Worth, but that he wouid go without a requisition to Philadelphia, where he had defrauded the Fidelity Insurance Company of SlO.ofiH. This was entirely voluntary. Shortly alter noon Inspector Hall of the Toronto police department arrived with Mr. Ryves, who is expected to wear that he lent Holmes the .spade with which he dug the graves fur the Pietzel girls.

Thin morning Oovernor Clarke said: "I propose to keep these two bullies apart in a peaceful, lawful way if pos sible; but if I am forced to take the bull by the horns I shall make some body bellow before I am through with it. I will stop the fight, no matter w ho may suffer." , Soon after noon, in accordance with this expressed determination, the gov ernor called out the first regiment of militia. The companies at Pine Bluff, Helena, Cabot and Jacksonville wero ordered to bo ready to move to Hot Springs this afternoon, anl he Mc Carthy Light guard, Fletcher rifles and Eagle light battery of this city were notified to be ready to move at 1 o'clock. Telegrams from the captain of the Helena company, received shortly afterward, said that ho had fortv-ebrht men ready to mtirch, with 1,000 rounds of ammunition. Forest City has thirty-eight men, with plenty of cart ridges and all eager for the trip. The plan now is to send, about 100 militiamen to Hot Springs from this city, and mass the other companies in Little Rock, so that they may be sent to Hot Springs early to-morrow. The object in sending the Little Rock com panies now is to have them on the ground at once to assist the- civil au thorities, should they want outside assistance. A WALKAXT FOrt SIIKRII'l IIOLM'T. A warrant has just been issued fo the arrest of Sheriff Houpt of (Jarland county, who Is now engaged in an effort to get Fitzsimmons to Hot Sprincrs. The warrant was issued bv Judge Martin of thef Pulaski county Circuit court. As.Sheriff Houpt is now in Texas, service will probably not be had until he reaches Hot Springs. V Trouble is expected when tho militia roaches Hot Springs. Their first duty will be to arrest one of the pugilists, and, as the Garland county officers are using every effort to pro tect them from Governor Clarke, a conflict of authority 's expected, and a conflict at arms is not wholly im probable. x With Sheriff White of Miller county and Deputy Heard at Texarkana wait ing to arrest Fitzsimmons to prevent a light and Sheriff Houpt of Garland county in Texas waiting to spirit the New Zealander into Hot Springs to make a tight possible, and the Pulaski county warrant for Corbett at Hot Springs, together with the approach of the militia, the situation is a com plicated one. "I'lTZ" ON A r.oL'XUABOLX KOLTK. A dispatch received by the governor announced that Fitzsimmons would not puss through Texarhana. He was met at Marshall, Texas, by Sheriff Houpt and the party at onei: left on a special train for Shrevcport, La. The route from that place will be through Alexandria to Pine Pluff, thence over the Cotton Belt to Caiuden, from Cam den to Gurdon and thence to Malvern. The sheriffs of Clarke, Lafayette aud Ouachita counties have been notified to arret Fitzsimmons and Julian and hold them for the sheriff of Pulaski county. As the party are on a special train, however, it is improbable that they will bj arrested as the special train' will avoid makingstops at points where otticinls are liablo to be en countered.

The Pottawat omie Indians, in council, passed reso lutions declaring: "We believe the stringent rules of the interior de partment regarding leases are noH conducive to our interests. It would be better for the Indian, better for the w hite tniin and better for the com munity that the Indian should havo greater control over his land in tho way of leasing at least for limited periods of say five years. Give iia more autonomy and less red taneism. The excessive potentialism of the gov ernment tends to dwarf the develop ment which is necessary to make ui self-supporting and which can be at tained only by imposing upon the In dian greater -nonal resnonsibility."
