Inspector Uyrnos has come t the conclu
lon that John Oroenwall tho thiof who was
collared In the lodging house at 5 Dowel on
Tuesday night with Bank ProulUont Youngs
hat on his bead is tlio murderer of Lymon S
Week Oreenwalls pal whon be robbed Mr
Youngs bouse at 63 Glonwood avenue Joraoy
City of ICO pieces of bllvorwaro on tho night of
March 22 was Charles Miller familiarly known
a Bitch Both Qroonwull and ho havo boon
Identified br a man who now thorn In front of
Mr Weeks house at 1071 Da Kalb avenue
Brooklyn on tho night of March 15 the night
that Weeks WM murdered thor by a burglar
and two pas of Qroenwall are willing to swear
that Oroenwall confessed to them that ha killed
Mr Week
TheO two Informers are Paul Krauso and
John Baker who also wore arrobtod on Tues
day night for complicity In the Young burglaiy
The flrst named told Inspector
Olt Byrnes on
Thursday that on the night after the Weeks
I murder he tried t got Oivonwall to go with
him on a plundering expedition to Brooklyn
Oreenwall refused guy lug he was afraid to g
to Brooklyn even at nlsht for some ono might
recognize him In explanation of his being
afraid he suld that he had killed MrWeoks tho
eight before This confession hu repeated t
Baker who I turn repeated It to Byrnes
Both Baker and Krause had noticed before this
tat Oroenwall no longer carried the block
bandied revolver of 32 calibre with which
tOY were familiar but had a new one in Its
place which ho bought a day or two after tho
murder Ue sad when he bought it that he
dldnt want t use the old one any more The
bullet that killed Mr Weeks was 82 calibre
His confession those two men say was no
great surprise to thorn for anothor reason
Oreonwnll h scarcely slept since the murder
of Mr Weeks 8 they told the Inspoctor and
while lying awake has been silent and still
When any one touched him ho jumped up with
the cry Whos that and looked as i ho ex
pected the answer t come from a policeman
Inspector Byrnes communicated these state
ments t Superintendent Campbell and District
Attorney Rldgway of Brooklyn on Friday and
that afternoon the later came to this city
and In his presence at the Central ofllce Baker
and Kruuse charged Qreenwull with tho mur
der They repeated In detail the statements
they had made to Inspector Hymen ron
wall made no reply to their denunciation at
least bO the police eay I he was too surprised
t say anything then he must have been utter
ly I dumfounded when shortly afterward Zorn
Chamberlain of 232 Klghth avenue picked
him out of 1 crowd of detvctiv as one of two
men he saw in Iront of Mr Weeks houbo on
the night of the murder To account for recog
nixing him Mr Cbambraln said that in cross
log ovor to Brooklyn on a ferryboat early on
the evening of March 15 his nerves wore tur
tured by two men who Sit on the other side of
the cabin rubbing their foot backward and for
ward on tho floor which was gritty will sand
Thoannoyanco they caused him made take
a good look at them and he remarked their respective
spective peculiarities One had queer little
eyes that blinked when anybody looked into
them and the other man had one shoulder
higher than the otuer Their forms and fen
tures Imprinted themselves on his memory
and ho had no troublewhtm at twenty minutes
t 12 that night ho passed Mr vtookss house
and saw them again in recognizing hoUI
telling of his recognition he described uu ex
cavation in front of Mr Woekus houce which
a guarded by the usual lump to prevent peo
ple from driving In and Mr Itidgway vvlio was
I the neighborhood the day after the murder
pronounced his d ecription accurate 1erhape
If It had not been for this lump there would
not have been light enough for Mr Chamber
lain t recognize uis acquaintances of the ferry
boat rQne 11 te tcrr
Oroenwall has queer little blinking eyes
When he had Oreenwall arrested Inspector
Byrnes knew that Butch Miller Inspctor I
federate who helped rob Mr Tounga house
Miller had already ben collared lor a petty
theft I Greenwich street and sentenced to II
month in the penitentiary On buturduy the
Inspector got a writ of habeas corpus from
Judge Donohue and brought him from muck
welFs Island t the Central Oillce where ho
confronted him with Cbnmborltiin As lu the
awe of Oreenwall Miller was put in a group of
about 1 dozen men Chamberlain at once rec
ognized his uneven shoulders and picked him
out without the slightest hesitation Ills description
heslnton luo
scription of both Groenwall and Miller before
ho had seen cither tallied 8 well with tholr
appearance that almost any ono could have
apparanco on
Identified them from It District Attorney
Bldgway was present at the Ideutlflcntlou of
Miller as on the previous day
The Intelligence which Mr Chamberlain was
able to communicate had long been known to
the police On the night after the Weeks mur
der be called on Inspector Byres to tell him
what he know and falling to see him tel went
t Brooklyn the next day and told Superb
tendent Campbell On getting Mr Chamber
lains idontillcatlon of Greonwall and Miller
inspector Byres telegraphed to Coy Hill to
countermand the requisition papers which had
been applied for in order to transfer Oroonwnll
nd Krause to Jersey City to answer for the
lOU robbery The Governor did HH request
ed and today Greenwall und Miller wU bo
I taken to Brooklyn wnoru tho Orand Jury will
Jur wi
ndJct them for tho murdor of Mr Weeks
Krtuse and Biker will go with them as they
jrfll b wanted B witnesses It was by tho
Mueullng of the frt named that tho Voting
robbery was fastened on Oreenwall rounl
flrconwall owes his present position entirely to
his traitorous pal
Inspector Byrnes does not rely wholly on
Mr Chamberlains identification to bring the
Weeks murder home to Oreenwall He hopee
tat 1r Weeks who listened 10Pe
speaking tube to her husbands conversation
t <
with the burglar will be able t identify Groom
wall by his voice She describes tho murderer
u mumbling in answer to her husbands quos
tions Now Greonwall who lea German and
knows English but Imperfectly I talks It het
Utlngly and In a low tono Tbo other throe
man Are also Germans tre
The Inspector t dhle eye on tho quartet In
connection with the Weeks murder before ho
bad them arrested for the robber in Jersey
City When Mr Weeks was murdered bo ron
bead that the crime was not committed by a
ne crme 10t commltod
firstclans thief fo such u one would not risk
twenty yea Imprisonment the penalty for
burglary In tho Ilrst I degree for the little lie
would b apt to pick up In a small household
He therefore concluded that the murder vne
the work of lowclass crooks such as frequent
the cheaper lodging houses lie had some of
these men watched and in thin way learned
that Oreenwall had disposed of his revolver
before Krmieo and Baker told about his sell
ing It He lls sol
IDA It also learned that tins man
who had sold the revolver ill MI s tl n r Iln lt

in the habit of making trips to Brooklyn r

Invariably followed by reports of a robbery
Apparently In order to be able to piove an

they engaged lodging somewhere for
which they paid In advance in hones

17000 LOSSES r onrv mtms ms
I8U1C is nUT 9 1 jooo
Both he and Mre Reynolds Farnleh PO
nail for Examination The Aehee of the
Stoner Sifted The Search Warrant
Dr and Mrs William M Reynolds both
gave ball in tho Yorkvlllo Police Court yester
day morning for their appearance for examina
tion tomorrow morning on the oharco of presenting
renting false proof of loss In nn Insurance case
The Doctor was baled out from the Fly lt
direct station house early yesterday morning
and reached homo about 1 oclock His wife was
named in the same warrant oh which he was
arrested but on account of Its being after dark
on Saturday evening when ho came home she
was not taken to the station houso She ap
peared at court by arrangement and was put
under bal with her husband
J Troodwell Richards counsel for tho Roy
noldsos gave an outline of the defence yester
day t Justice Smith lie said that tho amount
of loss on the contents of the burned building
was 117000 and proofs of loss to that amount
could b submitted But the insurance only
amounted to 160 There V8 no substantial
dispute of the amount up to 180 when it was
considered that carpets to the amount of 2200
and gas fixtures to the amount of 1700 wore
the figures to start with Then followed furni
ture bookcases engravings and brlcabrno
Ho offered It as prima facie evidence of the ab
sence of any Intent to defraud that 17000
losses were proved to recover flOo
Following tho allegations of tho complaint
ho described two Ester organs purchased at
different times ono of which was never In
Flushing nnd one of which was burned there
The evidence of the two separate and distinct
purchases was accessible and ho blamed the
insurance people for not continuing tho Inves
tigation until this evidence was reached
In this particular as In tho others mentioned
In the complaint ho found no fault with
the suspicions aroused by the singular coin
cidences developed by tho investigation Ho I
simply made the point thnt a little further In I
vestigation would have explained the coin I
cidences and removed the suspicions To do
this on the part of the defence demanded an
early investigation Bald ho would on ready
to go on and spread out his case Ho called at
tention to tho difference between these tactics
and those that would accompany guilt such as
the waiving of examination and the withhold
lag of the line of defence
The musta box in dispute was compared to
It disparagement with the one in the Forty
seventh street house which is a Ul0 one in
stead of the fOl one on which the loss Is
claimed The gun mentioned in the complaint
furnishes one of the most peculiar instances of
coincidence The one that was In the burned
building was a llftypound Wesley Richards
breechloading shotgun bought 187G In Lon
don by Mr Oliver Cunrllck and presented to her
eon Gardner B Churlkk Mrs Reynolds after
ward bought It from her brother and gave 1 to
her husband who had taken a fancy Iavo The
gun found In the outhouse and referred to us
proof that the Insured gun was not destroyed
was a W Richards breechloading shotgun
a cheaper grade ol the same manufacture and
worth Irlo Dr Reynolds bought it him
self for his hired man to shoot crows and
blackbirds with
An invalid chair mentioned in tho proof of
loss was valuable now patented trof An
oldfashioned haircloth covered rolling chair
that bail cmo belonged to Oliver Chat lick was
found In an outhouse and is offered as proof
that no char was lost A heavy oak and ash
mOt safe made in tho Long Island Railroad
shops years ago for Mr Charllck which was
In the cellar and destroyed was confounded
by tho Insurance men with an old rickety
wirecovered affair that was found in an
outhouse Tho lace curtains wore a similar
example Mrs Oliver Charllck bought I large
number of valuable old thread lace nilborder
curtains abroad in 1871 On the settlement of
the estate Mr Reynolds and her sister Mrs
Murray of Home Cortland county N Y
bought the curtains and divided them oqunlly
But lInt Murrays country home hud too low
ceilings to permit tho use of the curtains and
they were too valuable to cut So site
sold her share to Mrs Reynolds which
accounts for come of them being In tho Forty
seventh street house while some were burned
In Flushing This can be the more easily
shown Mr Rlchunls said as tho curtains
though of equal quality and value were of dif
ferent designs l
Justice Smith evidently considered this pres
entation of the defence for he fixed < tho ball at
nM a nominal sum to tho wealthy prisoners
especially lion provisions In a case not covered by any extradi
When the nows of Dr Koynoldss arrest in
THE SON reached Flushing It was greeted
with shrugs of tho shoulders and I told you
hos The Doctor is unciuostlouably anything
but a popular man in the village Tho ruins of
the houso attracted II number of visitors I It is i
to beautifully located bite on I wooded knoll
rising buck from Broadway just beyond the
railroad track Four tall straight fir trees
with their rich green were especially eon
nijlcuous among the bare brown brunches
of the other trees The grounds are
well kept and tho commodious barn and
outhouses are BO pretentious in architecture
that the place would seem to a stranger to he
in shape for occupancy I the ruins of tho house
wore out of the way But there they are two
gaunt brick chimneys andtho stone foundation
walls the striking features of an otherwise
peaceful rural landscape One chimney has
fallen but It fell outward nnd In nowise inter
fered with tho work of examining the ruins
Title has boon dono with a thoroughness that
Is unexampled except In the case of tho Bond
street fire In this city where the ruins of n big
jeWElry house were actually smelted to recover
all the gold
The Flushing ruins wore neither washer nor
omeltod but tnny wore very carefully sifted
The men who were employed to do this wore
exports of long service In the insurance patrol
of this city Their testimony is rolled on to
show juft how much furniture hardvvaio cas
tors springs owa found In the ashes and
Its state of picsorvation and by comparison
with the amount nnd condition of builders
cOlllton buider
hirdwnro found to show the amount of furni
ture destroyed
The question of the Darning of any mule
box may be decided by the evidence of what
was found In the ashes The amount and value
of the crockery destroyed can bo very closely
shown and comparisons made with tho state
ments In tho proofs of loss However broken
up they may be an ordinary lire will not fuse
articles of this sort
Tho private detectives wore still on duty at
the house In Fortyseventh street yesterday
and last night as the search warrant has not

Yesterday will b remembered by ono of
ho largest and most distinguished colotcd
congregations in tho North U the proudest
day in the history of Mount Olivet Baptist
Churh Sixtyfive converts were baptized be
fore an assemblage of colored beauty and fash
Ion that filled the 2000 seatsovorflowod Into the
aisles and extended out on the north sidewalk
of West Fiftythird street The doors were
opened at 10 oclock and so ongor wore tho
people to see tho biggest ceremony of its kind
that over has bon performed In thin or any
contiguous State that every Bat was filled In
ho main part and tho gallery of the church bo
for 1 oclok
Pastor DW Wisher ordered the ushers to
close the doors and lot no more people In half
an hour later The converts thirtynine of
whom wore young women and girls and twen
yslx young men and boys occupied pews in
rent of the altar which blossomed with bright
spring flowers that harmonized admirably
fower barmonlz
with the irnyly decorated bonnets of tho fomalo
The Itev Mr Wisher opened tho services
with prayer After the collection which en
riched tho church by f 250 tho pastor roaunstod
the candidates t arise and prepare them
selves for Immersion They filed out of doors
led door
on either side of th altar wnflo the Immense
congregation sang Jesus lover of my soul
During tho hour that the candidates took In
netting ready the worshippers sang hymns
familiar to colored Christians The refrain of
one of these was
ITepere me
lrepare me
pa I
Witch death ohan bat tbli frame
A member with I rich tenor voice chanted
I have loving mother In the New Jonualtun
chorus His fellow members added in thunderous
shouting In the New JernaIm
Another was refrain that was used very frequently
Carry me I the water
To b baptized
A loud shout at the main door announced the I
coming of tho converts As they entered they
sang a hymn with a chorus of prolonged and I
subdivided hallelujahs Tho thlrtynlno young
women wore dressed In white gowns with white
hundkorchlefstledover tholr heads and tho men
nnd boys wore black gowns and waterproofs
They marched up to the front of tho church
undraoccupled tie pews they had lolt The
congregation acting upon its own impulses
sang a variety of hymns some of the stanzas
of which wore improvised by tho fervent lead
ers This was ono of lie refrains
Come on end lets po to heaven
And the Lord going I to look after the look that day
The spontaneous singing was brought to a
close by Pastor Wisher who delivered a sor
mon on tho benefit and necessity of baptism
and then with Deacon William Moore who
like his pastor worn a black gown stopped
down the rlghthnud stairway of the marble
font Into the water < The font is nearly twenty
feet long Ono of the brethren stood at the
top of the lefthand stairway to escort the wo
men down while Deacons Hawkins
Mosely and Jackson In rubber suits stood at
the top of tho righthand stairway to receive
them after their Immersion
As the first whitegowned girl timidly came
down tho steps a fervent improvlsatoro sang
If you lava Ionl
As Jesus loves you
You would rom and be baptized
And be a Baptist too baplltd
The congregation supplemented this with an
oftrepeated refrain T lie candidate leaned on
the clasped hands of tho pastor and Deacon
Moore for a moment Then the pastor said
My ether In accordance with nods holy command I
bapilze 1 thee In the name of the Father and of the bon
7 the Holy Ghost amen one lIed < 100
Tho sister disappeared backward for several
seconds and emerged dripping like a sea
nymph Bhe cried Im saved and sprang
toward tho two muscular deacons In water
proofs They Uurrlod her through the door
opposite thin one by which she hud entered
and tho congregation shouted I <
Now she Is baptized Amen t
Every now and then an enthusiastic convert
threw her arias In tho air nnd shouted coner
