It U Nat Knew Vt'hau the Trial of Ha, Mrs.rits.1 and Howe will Begin Pltsel Is B.llsvad to be Alive and Offioers are on III! Track. Philadelphia, Nov. 28. Herman W. Muds-eft, alias Harry H. Holmes, and Mrs. B. F. Pltsel, the accused Insur ance conspirators, were still confined In the city hall to-day. Superintendent of Police Linden stated, however, that later In ths day (hey would be ar raigned probably before Judge Bregy In the quarter session court, and ball fixed for their appearance. If bonds men should not be secured the prisoners will be taken to Moyamenstng prison to await trial No date has yet been fixed for the trial of Holmes, Pltsel and Lawyer Jeptha Howe of St Louis, who yester day was admitted to bail in the sum of 32.500. Since Holmes learned last night of the engaging of Lawyers Shoemaker and Hawkins to defend him, his mood has become more cheerful, and he Is now correspondingly reticent. He paced his ceU whistling until a late hour last night and then retired and slept soundly until this msrnlng. Holmes' attorneys have not yet decided upon a line of defense for their client - District Attorney Graham stated this afternoon that he could not say when the trial would begin. "The affair Is In the charge of this office," he remarked, "but we have come to no decision yet as to when the ac cused will be tried. For the present we are merely considering the evi dence as it develops." "Is the delay due to a doubt whether you will bring the graver charge of murder?" was asked. To this the district attorney evasively replied, "There has been no delay in the case. The finding of the Indictment and the extradition course that was pursued hurried the entire case along much more speedily than It would have received had It passed in the regular channel of accusation before a magis trate." "Will It be postponed then because you are considering the evidence bor dering upon murder?" v The district attorney then admitted that he was considering the question of murder, and was examining all the evidence bearing on that phase of the case. "Beyond this," Mr. Graham con cluded, "I know of nothing that I oan, with propriety, give to the public." Holmes and Mrs. FJtial were removed this afternoon from the Central police station, where -they had been since their arrival. ., . . s. Howe was In consultation with his at torney to-day He will return to St. Louis to-morrow. Lawyer Hawkins, one of the attorneys engaged for Holmes admitted to-day that Holmes had strong friends in Philadelphia, and that they were bending every effort to aid him. Mr. Hawkins received an ad ditional fee of $250 to-day for undertak ing the defense of Holmes, but he de clined to say from whom the money had come. Lawyers Hawkins and Shoemaker had a long conference with Holmes to day. At the beginning of the talk the lawyers informed their client that he had acted "the part of a fool, pure and simple," in unbosoming himself and making such Btartltng confessions as are alleged to have been made to rep resentatives of the Fidelity Mutual Life association. Holmes declared to his attorneys that Pltzel Is alive and said that his Whereabouts would be lo cated when his (Holmes) mall shall be forwarded from Chicago. He was given to understand by his lawyers, however, that they would not defend him If a murder charge should be made. Lawyer Hawkins to-day wrote a let ter to Superintendent of Police Linden declaring that the action of the author ities in secreting Mrs. Holmes (who is said to be the arch-conspirator's third wife) and preventing her from seeing her husband was a wrong. He stated that unless the woman was produced at an early date a writ of habeas cor pus would be applied for to compel the police to proauce her. ,v , SB ATMS ABE CrHEAYEn. - : ' ' i Work of the Ear hqnakea In the Cemetery .. at Bfllasxo. j.

I believe the report of the commission to be thorough ly Impregnable as to every material statement of fact Whatever specific answer the commission may make to the charges of the Railway Age and of other papers, I presume the commis sion will prefer to make officially, and not to any individual publication. Such an answer I have no right now to make, but I have not consulted the members of the commission. I write this letter on my own responsibility. Whoever calls on me for the purpose of examining the testimony will be ac corded every privilege." Mr. Wright states on his own respon sibility that every point made by the Railway Age "Is false."

Bls sell from extra Webster to No. 8, grade 2, Eaton; no change of salary. The reports and the bonds of the treasurer and tax collector were ap proved by the board. It was voted that the beginning of the fiscal year and the current year shall end hereafter on July 14 Instead of August 81.' This was done to com ply with general statutes of the state of Connecticut ' It was reported that the mortgage on the old Fair street school has been paid In full with Interest The building committee reported that a lot on George Btreet, 138x169 feet, had been purchased.

Sul livan, $255; heating, Rourke Brothers, 3150; painting, Wolcott & Parrett, 397.50; total, 33,902.50. . A discussion then followed concern ing the attitude that the board should take toward certain pupils whose par ents or legal guardians do not reside In the school district, but who are re ceiving the benefit of the Instruction In the city schools free of the expense of tuition. The sentiment of the board seemed to be that where a pupil's par ents were too poor to support their children, and had sent them Into the city school district to permanently live with, friends or relatives, they should be given the full benefit of the schools. But where there was any "dead-head ing on the district" the board felt that an investigation should be had and a report made. This is the duty of the finance committee. It appeared last evening that there were several such cases in the district. In connection with the discussion Mr. Moran cited a very interesting decision by Chief Jus tice Andrews, in which the theory of public school education, as viewed by the state, was most clearly and con clsely set forth, the idea being that the state educates Its children as a matter of protection and economy. Illiterate and uneducated children arc liable to become vicious and dangerous citizens, and it costs more to support such citi zens in public Institutions than It does to educate them and make law-abiding citizens of them. The board then held a short execu tive session, as a result of which it was announced that the board had decided to ask the assistance of several ex perts In educational matters to assist them' In rearranging the courses In the HHlhouse High school. It was said that these experts would be both Yale professors and other gentlemen not connected with . the university, but standing high In educational matters. The board is taking this action since the matter "of a new high school build ing Is now indefinitely postponed, and it Is evident that some readjustment and rearrangement must be made in order to get along with the present building. Fli.ur Mills Closed down. St. Louis, Nov. 23. Every flour mill In this city has closed down for an in definite period.. The reason given by the milieus Is that the market is glutted with flour and suffering from over production. , Local dealers, however, point to the fact that the mills are sud denly closed at a time when the ques tion of cheap bread is being vigorously agitated by the newspapers. So much fraud in the sale of bread has been dis covered that the city council is consid ering a measure to compel dealers to seU bread by weight. Characterised Asa Fraud. New Orleans, Nov. 23.
