unt to the cast sent two more streams but the

n furious Proposition Kmuwi Record
John Grcenwolt the alleged elayor of
Lyinim 8 Weeks was arraigned In the Court
of Sessions In Brooklyn yesterday to plead ti
the Indictment charging him with tho murder
He was perfectly cool In his manner and his
rather pleasant face showed no trace of terror
Ho Is very far removed in his appearance from
the typical desperado Wham Clerk York had
finished reading tho Indictment ho answered
in n low but linn voice Not guilty Through
an interpreter ho said
I have no lawyer no friends and no money
I nm innocent ot this crime You may assign
mo counsel If you feel so disposed if not you
can let It alone You can assign counsel if you
please but I nm sure 1 am not the man who
killed Weeks
Judge Moore told tlio prisoner that ho would
assign him counsel todny and that he would
call and consult with him District Attorney
Itldgway wanted to have the trial sot down for
next Monday but Judge Mooro flied it for a
week from that day
Groenwell vas then taken from the court
room to Limo jail handcuffed to Detective
Itoehie and with Detective Corr alongside of
him On the way down Willoughby street to
the Raymond street jail ho made this curious
proposition to tho detective
If tIm District Attorney really believes that
I am the man who killed Mr Weeks why
doesnt ho tnko mo up to thn house in Do Kulb
avenue and lead uio to the very room In which
the shot was llrod and plnce me on the spot
where ho fell dead and see If 1 will turn little
I nm told that murderers faces will become
white when they are brought to the scene of thin
murders llrlngino there and see if mine will
The detectives were staggered nt the cool
manner lu which Oreenwell said this
w S hen lie was surrendered to Sheriff Fowler s
keeping he was placed in the cell which is tho
nearest to the main ofllce antI directly In view
of the keepers and there men were detailed to
take turns in watching him so that ho might
not have an opportunity of committing suicide
if ho cherished such on intention
The man who was watching him last night
read aloud the itport published in one of the
afternoon papers about his case He listened
to each word with unflagging interest He
kept silent until the report closed and then
alter long pause said
1 have nothing to say now except that I am
innocent but when the proper time comes X
vip have something to tell which will bo a sur
prise
There wns a singular Identification of Oroon
well at the jail jesterday Frederick Christian
a young Ocrman who also belonged to the
gang that Inspector Byrnes collared last week
and two whoso members krause anti Baker
gave Oreenvvell away has been In the jnll
nwaiting trial for burglary since April 1 Chris
tian like Greenwell Miller Ivruusc and
linker was In the habit of putting up
at the Bowery lodging houses On March 21 t
he was released from Bluckwells Iclum after
serving three months anti ou the iiieht of 1
March JC ho went with two or three of his pals i i
to Inrkvllle nnd broke Into and robbed the
house of AndtcnsLrzingera butcher In whose
employ hu hud been n > ear lieu When Green
well passed through the office at the jail ses
turday Mr Erzlnger was sitting there talking
with Christian nnout tIme recovery of time Jew
ely he anti hIs companions hud stolen A look
of recognition piscd between Christian anti
Greenwell and Mr Erzinger also felt conli
dent that ho hud seen Oreeuwell round
his place nt 1nrkvllle Christian sub
sequently told Keeper BheUin that he
was nciiualntid with Oreenwell and that they
tiseu ui Heep TOKeitier in tuu xjoivtjry IIL uui
time Police Inspector McLuughlin said last
night It is curious how we are pitherinpup
nil thug threads in this story of crime V hen i
Baker was ut Hondomirters yesterday he said
thnt Grcenwoll had told him n couple of wotiks
ago that lie was over in Brooklyn with three
friends tho night before and that they got
away with ISO In money and considerable
jewelry and also that they had plen
ty to drink while working on tho
job The thieves who broke into Mr Lrzingers
house carried off just that amount la money
fO worth of jewelry and drank it dozen bottles
of liuer 1 asked Greunvvcll if he knew any
thing about the Iirkv1lln robbery but ho
denied it I now believe that lie wits engaged
in It and that Krause may also have been ono
of the burglar Wo will follow up this new
piece of information mid something may como
out of it hearing ou the tangled web of crime
we are trying tu unravel
The story which Greenwell told to Superin
tendent Campbell on Tuesday has been dis
proved in ono important particular Hu mill
that ho had never been arrested before and
that he only recently joined the thieving gang
al 53 tiowrry Brooklyn detectives have as
certained that ho has been a thief for two or I
thiee years and that ho was only released
Iron Bluckwolls Island after serving ten i
months about two months ngo i
The hat which he wore on the night ho crossed
to Jersey and assisted in lobbing Bunker
Votings honto and which he left behind in the <
yard has been bunded over to the Brooklyn
police It is a black felt hat with a soft rim
and it is thought by Mr Itidgway to be the
same he wore on the night of the Weeks mur
der It is not un old hat but has evidently
seen bomo rough usage a niece of the
crown bciug crushed in mind almost cut
through It lc surmised that It may have
received thIs dent while its wearer had what
Mrs Weeks describes as a scrimmage with her
husband directly liefore the shooting and that
this t accounts for the broken chair which Mr
Weeks may have used on tho head of the bur
clnr he confronted In the basement Mrs
vteeks says thut time hat worn by the man
whom she saw making his escape seemed to he
n slouch hat dreonwells hat would bo mis
taken fur mm loiuIu In thn darkness
Tlie police have been following up the im
portant piece uf information thej obtained on
Tuesday in reference to Krauses previous
losidenco in Brooklyn In April 18SW a man
wno wild his name was Paul llannlek but who
Is IJentliiil with Krauso amid his wife rented a
furnished room from Mrs Konig nt 118 Broad
