The Investi gation or the cltv gas works he-a committee f the common council, aided bv expert accountants, is bringing to light a shocking state of affairs, and 11 Is made to annear that much ingenuity was used in devising methods to rob the city. Every probe Into the matter turns no some new place where the city has been plundered. The intricate method or bookkeeping and false entries make progress very slow. The investigation was brought about bv the death of Superintendent W.C.Adams, for many years in charge of that depart ment and the election of his successor. FELL FHOM THE WINDOW. Mysterious Death of n Michigan Traveling; Alan at Auburn. Auburn, N. T-, Oct. 30. A stranger arrived at the Osborne House last evening and registered as Ucnrv A. MeCousland, or Grand Pulpitis, Mich. He was a drummer. Nothing was heard or seen of him until 2;30 oVlock this morning, when a passing policeman discovered him lying upon the walk beneath the window of his room. He died soon afterward. It is supposed he fell from the third story window, but whether by accident, with cnicldal Intent, or -while walking In his leep, Is now mere matter of conjecture. , . Col. Jucciut's Released.

EVERYTHING IN EEADINESS Cuba Duy Was Knocked Out nl the Atlanta Exposition, lint Can not lie Here Spain' Prime MlnlHter 1'liiiHCd With the Administration. WordsofChi-erFrom YurlousSfateA. Washington citizens will tonight ex press their sviupathy for I be struggling pa triots of Cuba. The meeting Is to be held In Metzcrntt llnlland It promise s to bejcmiiicd. Spanish officials have protested against the gathering, knowing the iiiilucucc such an expression of sympathy will have. The protest has never seen the light since it was Hied at the Slate Department and the meeting will be held despite the protest. At the Atlnnta.Expnsltlon, "Cuba Day," could be postponed from November 0 until December 17. All this was clone on the ground that it would be olfenslvo to the Administration. The directors of Hie Ex IMisltlon wanted to make It a national event but It is i efsible now that no "Cuban Day" will bo observed. It was thought thut some such Influence could be brought to bear in this city. But It did not materialize. Many people who would te glad to openly express their views on the suhjict fear to do so ln'cause they are In olfice. Were it not for that hundreds would have pleaded lor tho privilege of signing the call for the mass meeting. Spain is pleased with the attitude of the government. The- Prime Minister of the couiiir) says. "In the United States the sentiments of the population ore to be dis tinguished Irom the attitude of tho Federal Government. Current opinion ve ould give 10 (tie insurgents only a moral backing. American opinion may yield lo unrelleeted enthusiasm. But the government or the United States has other notions and other duties. I have nothing but praise for the government of the United States. It Is doing all it can. It is seizing the boats which ore sent to Cuba. It Is bringing be fore competent Juries the agents of the filibusters. Hut the competent Juries are members of the public. It Is not the fault of the United States that Juries acquit." HOW INTEREST GKEW. The history or the movement in this cltv is. something The Times is proud of. It is only a little over two weeks ago since the call wasisucd but the Intern shown has been wonderful. Fiom all sides have come words of sympathy and encourage- Ihe first meeting of tl-e ocmmlttcc on arrangements was intruded by almost two hundred people.

He bus had experience in the United Stnu5 cavalry. He knows of nearly a hundred men who want to go with him. So he wrote to Mr. Wolf asking for the ad dress or a re-crurtlng orficer. Mr. Wolf Is sorry the New Mexico man must remain In Ignorance. The rollowing letter also came yesterday from North Carolina. The dale and name are not given. "It was gret pleasure to me to read of the coining Cuban meetlnir. The Cuban Insurgents, the people of Cuba, are fight ing, like the founders of our glorious Ite- pubhe. for their freedom.

SHE TOLD A PITIFUL STORY Wan mid "Worn in Hardly Audible Voice She' ltultited the Lies and Deception JIo llntl Practiced Upon Hit Neer Saw filer Little Ones After Ho Took.TUem Awuy. Philadelphia, Oct. 30. Branded though he is as a liar, swindler and murderer, the picture elrawn to-day' of Holmes' cold .hrarleel villainy, by Mrs. Pletze-1. the widow of the man for whose nmrtlcr he Is being tried, presents Iilm in even a more reiolt lng character than h.e tins yet stood re- c-alcd. Whate-vcr sympathy might have been cx cltest by Holmes' friendless and forlorn condition, was cffecidally killeel in the bre'nsts of all the Jicarers in the court room of Mrs. I'lvtzeJ's story. She was placed upon the wltpess stand to-elay. and for three hours this nfte'ruoon and one hour to-night, she wan subjrrred to nn orelral that no woman In her conoiUoii had cer bee-u called upon to face."" Her story furnished the first rcallv sensa tional Mature that hat yet been broucht out. Tie w bola, scenu and the events of the afternoon went Intenselv dramatle. FACJ? TO FACE. Mrs. Pletzel ami Helmed have never been brought face to face until to-day since the dreaiirul revelations' ot her children's murders have e-cune out. When a woman, bent and feeble, was assisted Into the witness Ihix there was a e-ranlag of necks In the court room, for It was at once surmised that this -vraJ Mrs. Pietzel. Whether Holmes had schooled himself to face her, or whether the man reallv lacked sensibility. It was Impossible to say. but as the woman stood erect before him he exhibited nn emotion ot any kind. but. ou the e-ontrary, gazed fixedly at her ror fully a mlDUtc. As the woman eameilntu the full light of the itmrt room shei plainly showed that she had borne a. bunion of sorrows. troubles that have nroven too heavr for her. Iler skin wag sallow and her face was heavy and lifeless. Above her sunken e-ceeks her lnck-lustcr eyes 6tared steadily in front of her with a meaningless gaze. She more resembled a, '.woman under the Influence of some strong drug that had dulled her senses, rather than one that Is In full possession, of Her faculties. She sunk; inin a chair mid crouched there like an animal that, stands in fear of the lash. She was so weslr that, throughout the giving of her testimony the court of ricers stood by her side ana repeated aloud her whispered replies lo the questions asked her. SHE KNEW HIM. Only once throughout; the clay and even ing did she look In Holmes- cUreciion. At the beginidng or her testimony she was asked lr she knew the prisoner. She cast one hurried glance in ,his direction and then culckly averting hefr eyes replied that she did. It w as. a damning story or duplicity and knavery thai she related to the court. She w as led somewhat hurrledlv over Ihe events prior lo PcltzePs death. Then she told of Holmes" coming to her and teliliig i.er that her husband still Uvea, but was In hldlrg for his connection mlth the swindle ot the insurance cnmpaii). How lie persuaded her to send her daughter Alice to Identify the suppose-el body or her rathr and returning to her home in St. Louis extortesl from her by sharp practices all but $000 of tho $0,700 she received in payment of her husband's Insurance -policy; or the persuasions he used to secure poesslon of two ot her other children, whom tie took away with him. - - - it was from this period that nolmes' ;ruel practices began.' Yeiirnlng for a sight of her husband and children Ilouues led her from city ttf city with the illusive hone before her th.it?hsvould soon meet her loved onesr ,Ho throughly was she un der his Influence that sho gave him her letters to post to her husband and children, and while her heart was breaking for word from her little ones, he was carrying around in his pocket letters from them to her. , LIED TO HER ALL THE TIME. After the death or the children. Holmes carried his deception so far as to bring to her a letter-written tn cipher and pur porting to be from one of her little girls. He also worked this stratagem In a letter alleging to be froroJier husband. Never once did he give beta-hint that she would probably never see her husband again, and lie constantly tnldher; that her children were well and happy. . Throughout tnl&rtong -recital Mrs. Piet zel had borne up with fortitude, but -when Mr. Graham asked her If she ever saw the children arter she gave them Into Holmes' charge, she gave Ttray and sobbed quietly but bitterly bcrore she could answer. Not a whisper -was heard In the courtroom ns the woman raised her head and in a broken voice, replied: i "1 never saw my two little girls again until I saw them lying side by side In the morgue at Toronto, and I never saw How ard again, but was only shown some things that belonged to Dim In Indianapolis." Mrs. Pletzel's testimony was most dam aging to Holmes, and thevTOss-examlnatlon by tne counsel forthe-defense In no way served to help tilni. With the advent of his counsel into the case to-day the cur rent which -was beating Holmes swiftly away' -when be 'was nloue; -was slightly stemmed. Although his two attorneys have as yet leclded upon no definite line of defense. they were better, able) td take advantage ot the technicalities that arose.

COLLECTING THE EVIDENCE. At these two places a Times' man found two houses in full blast, with everything wiueopeu, stuu norse poker, cran.stralght fevotcd to the curd mnies. While nil this was going on there were In the room the representative of The Times and several agents of 'he Hoard or Trade, both agencies acting separately. The Board of Trade, through Mr. F. L. Moore, chairman of a special cninmltt'-e to suppress these evils, digested the In formation It obtained and sent It to tlieem- .crnor of Virginia, who promised as soon as nis attorney general got nac-k from a country town" that he would hac him break up the whole business. So far as the public has been informed the atlornev general of Virginia is still at the countrj town attending to business of State. AVHAT TIIE TIMES DID. The infoimatlon gathered by the Boarel of Trade and that ot Tho Times, which was published on the morning after the elis coverics, have evidently been now con sidered by the grand Jury of Alexandria county and there could have been no doubt as to what view the Jury would take of the cases. It will also be remembered that the Board of Trade secured the assist ance of the District Commissioners, who authorized the detail of siiecial officers, anil a raid was made on the dens after the public eximsltion of names and place by The Times. The result of this raid was the capture ot several bushels of poker chips and other paraphernalia of a first-class blghevay rob bery Joint. This was the property of Messrs. Nelson anil Foster, whose names, were also published In The Times, and who were indicted some- time since. Their case will come up at the approaching term. TO BE TRIED SOON. The evidence was sent to the grand Jury Hi the Heath etal. cases by thcucev common wealth's attorney, Leonartl Marbury, who will doubtless make a reputation Iu the cases, as he Is determined to com let the whole gang or those of them -who remain In Ihe county. Judge Chichester, It is said, is also anxious that the county be rid'of the blot which lhoe chevaliers d' Industrie have put upon it for It wi'l be rememliere-d that when the matter was being agitated elaily by The Times, he was In favor of getting a special grand Jury lo get the cases to trial promptly. The trial of all the cases In which true bills have been returned will be had nt the November term of court. VlrRlnla Must Help Her University. Fredericksburg, Va., Oct., 30.

JO V IN CORBETT'S CAMP. Naturally the news -was re-eelved -with grini satisfaction In the Corbett camp. What tne champion thought or said on toe subject 4s known only lo lilmseir or Brady, and thej, latter alone, of the crowd in I be rotunda, knew wnere his principal w?is housed. Even ihechampion's brother was keptin the bluffing act, and had no intention at the iim he left Hot Snrlngs last week of bring ing Fitzsimmons to the city. Defenders or inelaltcr were few, although they endeavored to make out the besr posslble case for their favorite upou the conjecture that he was solely the victim or circumstances- On this line tbey made some converts, and a good many people -who were at rirst inclined to roast Fitz simmons to a tnrn, concluded to suspend Judgment until the facts were made clca" to-morrow. BRADY MAD CLEAR THROUGH. As for Manager Brady, his set teeth and lips and the wicked look In his eye showed that he was mad through a'nd through.

In our efforts to make good our word to the people of this city. To all tho appeals to come here that have been sent to Fitzsimmons during the past ten days by Mavor Waters, by President Babcock, of the'clnb, and by ourselves, there has been but one stereotyped response, I will be In Hot Springs on October 31. CORBETT'S MOVES MVSTERIOCS. "Does it look to-night ns if he will be here? Does It look ns lr his failure to In here can be" attributed to misadventure? Let the people read the facts ami Judge. As for ourselves, let it be announced that in accordance with the articles of agree ment I stand ready lo produce James J. Corbett iu the city or Hot Springs at any time between midnight to-night and rnld nightror to-morrow prepared to meet any contestant tor the world's heavy-weight championship." . ,, .., Corbctt's departure from his training quarters at Spring Lake was marked by mystery and celerity. He was tralnlne in the morning as usuaL but whcn-vlslturs went oat In the afteraooa he had vanished. It was said that he bail given the deputy sheriff, who had lilm In charge, the slip, and Brady partially conrirrued this to night when he said that his man was not In the custody of the Jaw to-night and would be equally Tree to morrow. The most pUiuslble explanation of his wberealwuts to-night Is that he Is a guest ot one of the numerous families In the aristoe-ratle section of the city, the heads of which are known to be in sympathy with the mill being brought off without; further liiteriercne-eof the executive. Manr sidelights were thrown upon the situation during the day. Attorney General Klnsworthy came In from Little Roek.
