OFFICIALS D1SCKKDIT IT. Do Not Think Revenue Officers Huto Drilled Miners In Alaska. Government officials are In ignorance of any information confirmatory of the state ment printed Iu San Francisco, that troops organized and drilled under '.be Inspection of revenue of ficers are now In laska north of Juneau to protect American miners in their rights.

C, WEDNESDAY 3IOIC3fESTG, OCTOBER 30, 1895.--EIGHT F NEW COULD HOT GO IT ALONE Holmes Unable to Stand the Strain Without Lawyers. TOOK HIS COUNSEL BACH For Seven Hours no StruggleTl Single handed Against the Incriminating Evidence Piled Up Against Him. Only Once During the Day HlsNere Weakened Studiously Polite. Philadelphia, Oct. 29. Fairly enmeshed and with the shadow of the gallows loom ing darkly over him. Holmes to-night re called the counsel that he dismissed from his service yesterday morning, and gladly availed himself of their aid. From 10 o'clock until G this afternoon Holmes struggled against the current that is bear ing him away, and again and again he lust himself in a labyrinth of questions in his cross-examination of witnesses. Cool, cunuing in h n though lie is, and with an intelligence far above that or tho herd of base criminals, he showed his In ability to contend slngle-hamud against such desperate odds as were arrayed against him. Abhorrent as the man's iu...i.v crime. louse loin, tm'r!lei.uid i oar age he exhibited to-day ill Hie hoiieless fkrht that he is making could not but extort the admiration of thooeln the court room. HIS IKON NERVE. Fact after fuct was piled up against him Iu pitiless array by the common wealth, nnd never once while he was alone flid Ills iron wnc forsake him. He met each new criminating piece of evidence with the best or bis untrained ability as a lawer ni,u eoiiiuateu it nna.iii. The leniency and courtesy shown to Holmes by the court and district attorney to day Is unprecedented in the criminal Jurisprudence ot Philadelphia. District Attorney Graham determined that It should not be said that so much as a straw was thrown in the way ot Holmes to retard him in his defense, and for hours the prosecuting attorney ot tho commonwealth remained liatiently silent while Holmes was putting witness after witness through a long line ot irrelevant and Immaterial questioning aud was consuming the time of the court purposely. . Holmes nskpd, and was allowed, to have excluded from the courtroom to day all witnesses who might know anything upon the subject which was being testified uixn before the court. Throughout his long and trying ordeal Holmes never once allowed himself to become angry or excited. Only occa sionally when tho district attorney would interpose some objection to his meaningless questions, there would come a tightening of the lips beneath the brown inustaihe, nnd a sudden, cruel hardening of the clear eye, that showed that thejuan wns, putting a great restraint upon himself. UNMOVED BY PJETZEL'ri PORTRAIT. With the evident purpose ot trying the effect upon Holmes' nerves, the district attorney continued him to sit opposito all day to a large crayon portrait of the man for whose murder he Is being tried. But, it such was Mr. Graham's intention, the portrait might as well have been placed before the Sphinx, as far as any effect was produced upon Holmes. Iii answering the district attorney or in making Ills frequent inquiries of the court, Uolnua manner was mild even unto sup plication, and although more than ono covert sneer was directed toward the prose cuting officer, at no time throughout the day was this singular man's voice raised hardly above a whisper. The corumonnealtii to-day prcsentwl wit nesses for the purpose of proving the cause or Pietzel's deatn anil his identltication. Although the trial has hardly begun the tes timony ot the witnesses to-dav fairly wove a web of incriminating circumstantial evi dence around Holmes. He appreciated this and was nt a loss to extricate himself from the position in which he was caught. From his line ot questioning 11 would seen) that nt one moment he hail decided upon adopting for Ills deftnse the theory that 1'ietrel hail committed suicide while drunk, and then lie would suddenly swerve off into an entirely different direction and It would appear that he intended to base his denial of the murder upon the plea that the lxdy was not that of Pletzel nt nil, but a substitute of the corpse placed in Uie house to deceive the insurance com pany. UNTENABLE LINES OF DErENSE. If cither ot these ideas of defense was Holmes', it was untenable, for he lias al ready made sworn affidavits that would contradlctthem. Thetruthwasthntllolmcs was fairly impaled upon the horns of two dilemmas and he saw no way olf either of them. His medical knowledge was of some assistance to him In his cross-examination of the physteHns who testified, but he brought out nothing favorable to him self. At the conclusion ot the afternoon's session Holmes stated to the court that the strain was proving too great for him, and he asked that only two sessions of the court be held a day. Instead of three. This was denied him, and then It was he deter mined to call In his old counsel. When the court convened to-night Holmes explained that he had again called in his two attorneys and they took charge of the case, both are young men and are not foemen worthy of the district attorney's steel, as they lack the experience necessary to enable them to grasp and present to the Jury points favorable to their client, l The defence is certainly without wit nesses nnd the two attorneys to-night were only too evidently unprepared to go on with the case. They cross-examined at random, ani from the questions they asked It wou'd seem that they had decided that the best line of defense would be to deny the Identity of the body found as that of Pletzel, although this may be an entire supposition. LOST nis GRir. Holmes to-night for the first time seimed to lose his nerve. A large picture of little Alice Pletzel was suddenly introduced by the dlstrfct attorney, and the sight or it most evidently upset him, nnd when the commonwealth proposed evidence show ing that Holmes, in addition to his other" crimes, had made this child the vicllm of his passions, the man was greatly dis composed and showed his relief in his face when the evidence bearing upon this point was ruled out by the court. Beyond the return to the case or the two nttorneys to-night the proceedings were dull and uninteresting In the mSlii, and the commonwealth having completed its iden tity of ntezel, the court adjourned until to-morrow morning. In compliance with bis request, the wo man whom he had deceived into the belief that she wag his legal wife, under the,nanie of Mrs. Howard, met Holmes this morning in the! district attorney's-orrice In the presence of her mother. The object of Holmes In seeking the interview was to obtain from the girl the return to him of certain properties that be had deeded over to her. This, she told him, she would be only too glad to do, and that she never again wished to see him. Holmes asked for another Interview with "Mrs. Howard" at noon, but she was too muck prostrated by the first Interview with him to see him again. INTERNATIONAL BUNCO CAME.

ESTIMATES FOR NEXT YEAR He I'Inces the Required Sum at S140, 000,000 Work of the Board of Re vision and tlie Special Agents rrulsed Commissioner Suggests a Provision for Retired Clerks. Judge William Lochren, Commissioner of Pensions, has submitted his annual re port to theSecretaryotthelnterior. It shows'thal up to June 30, 1894, there were 969,544 jicnsloncrs, and during the year 39,185 new pensions were granted, and 4,20(1 restored that Lad been dropped from the rolls, making an aggregate roirof 1,012,935. f There were 27,810 deaths nnd 14,575 pensioners dropped during the past year, making the number on the rolls on June 30, lb95, 970,523 an increase during the year of 980. Unless further pension legislation is en acted, the Commissioner thinks that the ap propriation of $140,000,000 will be suf ficient for the pajnient of pensions for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1690. NO CHANGE IN ESTIMATES. The estimates for 1697 arc the same as for 189G, except an additional $3,000 for belter quarters ot theagent at Buffalo, N. Y. The commissioner thinks that aside from discontinuing Illegal pensions, the work of the tioard of revision has been beneficial in dleouraglng the filing of claims without merit. The work or the law division was excellent in detecting crimes in pension prosecutions and discovering illegal prac-th-es among pension attorneys. Two hun dred and ninety-roil r persons were con viited. The most Important lielng W. Bowen Moore, or Baffal , N. Y.. nnd George M. Van Leuven, or Lime Springs, Iowa, both attorneys with a large pension dientage. THEY PREVENT FRAUD. The commissioner compliments the work of the pension examiners in the field, nnd says that the fait that this force pervades the entire country, and is llkelv to dlsi-nvpr and bring to light any frauds that may bo attempted, exercises a constantly re straining Influence upon dishonest claim ants ana attorneys. The net of March 2, 1895, Increasing the rate of certain pensioners to S6 per iiiuuui, muue an increase or $1,500,000 annually lu the payment of pensions, and tlie act repealing the act of March 3, 1893, which forbade the payment of pensions to non-residents arter July 1, 1893. in creased the payments during the last four months of the year 1895, about $275,000. Over one thousand dismissals of clerks were made in tho bureau during the year. The Commissioner thinks it would bo equitable and humane for Congress to make soiiinie moderate provjsi in tiraid the clerks disabled by long faithful service, who cannot perform their work and are dis charged.

TRIED TO STARVE THEM OUT Cu'rnace All Due to the Foolish Whim ot the Sultan Who Overrode th Decision of His Ministers Rigbtot Petition Was Denied the Itooli. tluulsts. Boston, Mass., Oct. 29. Additional ani even slguifieant letters have been recelT4 in Boston from an American resident la Constantinople awakening comprehensions concerning the effect of a revolutionary movement. The writer says: "The Armenians ot the Ity have not re turned to business, and the Armenian churches of Koumkapou, Pera, Galata and Hasakcay hate remained full of refugees ever since the riot. These people are quite largely armed, and many ot them are revo lutionists who escaped from the police while the police were engaged In attack ing innocent iitople. "The government has repeatedly ordered and entreated them to leave the churches and disperse, but they have retused to do so, liecauso tbey conld not be sure that they would not be killed instantly on leav ing their rcruge. Their precute armed in the charities lias been a constant menace to the peace of the city, for the Turkish rabble have rejieutedly demanded to b allowed to flmh them, since these mee are lu reality rebels. TRIED TO STARVE TIIEM. "The government decided to starve then, out, and cut off supplies from the Koumka pou iliun.li. It also ordered the families to leave all the hoases iu that region, moved" in troops, nnd prepared for a. desperate fight. The exi;ctat Ion jvas that thu Armenians, under the pangs of hunger, would make a rush for escape; but the embassies remonstrated against them measures, as threatening to bring on an other reign of terror throughout the city. Accordingly, the government relieved the strain by allowing provisions to be carried into the church. "Then the embassies of six powers were asked by the Porte to use their good offices to lead tho-Armcuians to leave the churcbn and go home the Porte gh Ing, what It baa hitherto refused, a promise that no ore shall bo molested as he leaves thecburch. "The embassies jrc engaged in negoti ations with the Armenians and it is hoped that the danger Is oicr. The Armenian have hitherto refused to believe the Turks, and have said that if the embassies win give a guarantee or safety, they wul dif perse to their homes. A FOOLISH ACT. "It was very astonishing that the Turk who were bo loollsh as to resist tlie effort of the Armenians to present their petition to the Bublinie Porte. It was contrary to. the usage of. Ihe cwintry to do so. and could only be explained iu a wilful net of hostility to the Armenians, unless the Ar menians had broken tLe peace before tht Turks attacked them, which is denied. "When the Grand Vizier.Said Pasha, told the Sultan Hint the demonstration wns to take place and asked for Ins will, the Saltan committed the matter to the Grand Vizier and the minister or tLe interior to arrange together, giving ttim full powen They decided to allow the jetiljoners to present their grievances merely taking the precaution to hae trccps In tLe iieigu borhood, out of sight, Lut to posted as to prevent any surprise, in ccse t he Armenian should prove to be rlotcus. All was ready and the Grand Vizier was Jest setting out ror th e Porte to receive the A rmen ians. w hen he was informed by the Sultan tLat hear Sultan) had decided against the dnuon stratlon and had already orCcred the troor to resist and disere any gruups of Armen ians that might papear. -"So the whola responsibility for tte carnagc falls upon the foolish decision to override the plans or the ministers.
