Vart II. had to do with the mystery of
tlio mi-sing letters and an Inquiry into the
liii, if any. that James Cummings, tho
house detcctivo at Mr. Stokes's Ansonia
apartment hotel, and a number of de
leaves and policemen had in tho matter.
Nine letters written by Stokes to Miss
(iraham. itwill bo remembered, havo been
produced at tho trial, but her lawyers say
that nino other letters which were in Miss
(iiaham's apartment when tho shooting
took placo havo dropped out of sight.
The testimony yesterday, if one believed
it all, showed that sometimes there were
hear of letters in ulia Graham's apart
ment when people went looking for them
after the shooting and that at other timos
there were only a few and then again nono
at all. On one thing only did all the wit
nesses seem to agree and that was that
the only letters written by Mr. Stokes to
Miss Graham found anywhere at alt
were found by Cummings, tho Ansonia
detective. After listening to these state
ment District Attorney Whitman said that
he wouldn't ask for warrants and Magis
trate Freechl said the hearing was over.
That relieved Cummings for the time
being, but.t is probable that both ho and
A. H. GTeason. Mr. Stokes's personal
attorney, who sent tho nine Stokes letters
1o the District Attorney two days and
a half after hey were handed to him
by Cummings, may be called upon to do
some more explaining. District Attorney
Whitman said yesterday that ho wasn't
satisfied with Mr. Gleason's explanation.
He held that It was Mr. Gleason's duty
to turn the letters over to tho police as
soon as ho received them and that the
lawyer knew it perfectly well. Mr. Whit
man said ho didn't intend to pass over
Mr Gleason's action in the case.
The next two aots will bo staged at
Folice Headquarters, where Lieut. William
V. Sullivan and Detectives Michael F.
Walsh, Thomas J. Devery and William
J M. Flynn will go to trial on Thursday,
and in tho Grand Jury room, whero Miss
(iraham and Miss Conrad will toll their
story of tho shooting and what led up to it.
It's a little unusual for the defendants
in such a case to go before tho Grand
Jury, but District Attorney Whitman
aid yesterday that the girls' counsel
had announced their intention of request
ing it and that ho thought ho should
grant the request. The Grand Jury can
call a defendant if it sees lit and doesn't
have to listen to any ono unless it sees
tit, but suggestions made by the District
Attorney are usually complied with.
In regard to tho trial of the policemen
Commissioner Waldo sent the following
iff ter to tho District Attorney yesterday;

Mr Whitman replied that he had de
tailed Assistant District Attorney Iluck

Suppression of evidence is only a mis
demeanor, so that Mr. Waldo has'appar

his counsel why tho young women were

for Iho girls, made a fuss and they were
taken to tho ball department in the Dis
trict Attorney's oflice to await Iho making
out of the bond.
Before tho missing letter matter was
taken up Judge Olcott. of counsel for
Stokes, said that tho missing letters were
only a side Iasuo cleverly arranged
by the dofenco to "raise a smoke to hide
tho fire." He said that thore wero letter

and that none was of a compromising
nature When asked why copies of all
Mr. Stokes's correspondence with Miss
Graham wasn't produced if that were the
case, Mr. Olcott said that there was
nothing to bo gained by it. He added
that tho only thing that worried Stokes
in connection with the letters was a
threat which Miss Graham had made
to send one to Mrs. Stokes overy morn
ing unless Stokes paid J200 for tho letters.
Mr. Olcott intimated thai copies of all
tho letters would be Introduced In court
when tho women are tried.
John flloom, superintendent of tho
Varuna, testified that tho police detectives
opened a trunk on tho night of tho shoot
ing and look out a package of letters
tied with a pink ribbon. Ono of them
examined the package, extracted some
lottery, retied the package and put it
back in tho trunk. Then tho detectives
nut some letters which had been found
lying loose in tho trunk in a box and went
out. Under questioning ho told ot a
visit to the apartment two days later

District Attornev Whitman asked the
detective if Stokes had told him to look
in the trunk for letters, but the detcctivo
wouldn't say so. What he was sure of
was that there was no package of letters
in the trunk, but only a few scattered

Georgo Gardner Ilockwood, tho photog

Scott, Senator William M. Kvnrts, Gen.
Anderson of Fort Sumter fame, Horace
Greeley, Martin Van Huron, President
Hayes, Ole Hull, Rmnia Abbott and many
other prominent men and women, most
of whom wero Mr. Rockwood's personal
frieniK lu his later years ho confined
himself almost exclusively to art studios
Mr. Rockwood was born in Troy, X, V., in
1832. Ho went to tho Troy schools and
later received the degree of Ph. I), from
Chicago University. Ho took up pho
tography in St. Louis In 18J3 and produced

United States. The subject was Baron
Itothsohild. Mrs. August Belmont was the
first woman of whom he mode a vignette
carte-de-visibS Ho was an inventor as
well as a photographer and made many
improvements in tho toots of his trade.
He used to say that his mind was turned
to inventions by meeting Samuot Morse
when the inventor of the telegraph was
exhibiting his instruments at the United
States Hotel in Saratoga. Ilockwood
was a hall boy in tho hotel at that time.
Morse took a fancy to him and was at
pains to explain the workings of his in
vention. Mr. Rockwood came to Xew York in
1837 and went into partnership with his
brother, Col. Klihu It. Ilockwood. who
died in IB0i. Thore are several Rock
wood studios about tho city now, but the
one in which George Ilockwood and hfs
brother came to bo best known was at
Broadway and Thirteenth street. It
was in this studio that tho Rockwoods
met. photographed and made friends with
so many of the famous men and women
of their time. When tho civil war camo
Klihu enlisted and George stayed homo
to attend to business. Klihu won his
title of colonel whilo serving with the
-rcnth Massachusetts Volunteers.

cal discussion, honing to MXMire an ani
mated pose, "The answer to mv
question," ho related afterward, "was
a gontlo snore. Poor .Mr Greeley, fagged
and worn, was fast asleep."
Major Anderson became one of Mr.
Rockwood's friends and onco when the
Major was posing for a picture Mr.
Rockwood asucd him if it were true that
he had been on tho point of surrendering
Fort Sumter In telling the story Mr.
Rockwood used to say that the major
replied with great earnestness:
"Xo. Mr. Ilockwood. When I raised
that flag on high with a prayer to Al
mighty God for its protection I knew
that it would never come down in dis
grace." .Mr. Rockwood married before he was
21 and, as lie said, "inherited a family
of nine" through the death of las father,
which left him at the head of a family
