Philadelphia, Xov. 1. Holmes to-day
threw himself upon Uie mercy of the
Jury. When the commonwealth closed Its
case Uns afternoon his attorneys an
nounced that they considered the prosecu
tion had not made out Its charge of murder
and they would rest their case upon the
evidence offered by the commonwealth
and submit no testimony in defense of
Uie prisoner. "
This'decUIon was made by Holmes uiion
the advice of a well-known lawyer, who
was at one time retained by the prisoner.
The move seemed like a bold one, but wns
unquestionably done more tn desperation
in the hope of Influencing Ihe Jury and
creating (he impression in their uiluds that
being conscious of his innocence and not
having had time to prepare a proper de
fense. Holmes trusted himself to their
sense of Justice. In reality Holmes has no
defense. ""

black record would tell terribly against
him even if he wcrenblc to orrer something:
like substantial proof that he did not kill
I'ilezel. The commonwealth presented no
direct proof that Holmes murdered I'lterel.

covery of the bodies of the Pltczel children,
Is well known. When the liodks of these
children were found the district attorney
was then absolutely convinced that Holmes
killed I'ilezel and that the murders of the'
children were the direct outcome of the
first assassination.
It was expected Uiat the Case would
be sensational in the extreme, but utter
Judge Arnold ruled out all the evidence
bearing upon the murder of the children,
the most ghastly reatures or Holmes' se
ries of crimes were eliminated.
But nine witnesses were called to the
stand to-day. The defence tills morning
had decided that ihey would attempt to
prove that Pitezel committed suicide and
was not murdered. Expert testimony bear
ing upon this theory introduced by Mr.
Graham must have shown the attorneys
for Holmes that the derenccthey had out-"
lined would require greater resources to
maintain than they had al their command.
They furlher made two blunders; to-day.
Mrs. Pictzel wns recalled to the stand to

the defense attempted to show tli.it the
was perfectly cognizant of Ihe scheme to
swiudlc the insurance company, and that in
the Journey she took with Holmes she was
trying to avoid arrest for her slmre in it
and was not seeking her children 'tnd hus
band. Tuejpiestions of tiie attorney for Ihe de
fense brought tears to the eyesof the broken
woman upon thestand, and her appearance
excited the sympathy of all in the court.
When she was removed from Uie stand and
led Into the corridor she was attacked by a
nervous fit and her screams rang through
the room.
The defense's second blunder was In at
tempting to elicit from Miss Yoke the opin
ion that she still believed herself the legal
wife of Holmes. When Mr. Graham saw
the drift of the questions being asked he had
the witness tell the entire story of how
Holmes had deceived her In the marriage
and the lies and deception he practiced
upon her. Daring this recital Holmes be

shamefaced manner.

New York, Nor. 1. The following state
ments arc from private letters from Turney
to a gentleman lu this city ia regard to the
recent disturbances In Trebizond and Con
stantinople. They are from eje witnesses,
who are also In a position to learn ac
curately about affairs in their vicinity.
The excitement in Trebizond b.'ga'i about
October 2, when nn attempi was made on
the life of the ex-Vall of Van. He was
shot and wounded by an Armenian revo-
. lutionlst who has not yet been captured.
Nothing specially worthy of mention oc
curred until Mouuny, October 7, when an
incident stirred np the excitement to an
unusual extent. On the previous Frlday
nigtu the sun of a leading 'lurk ot the town
was wounded on thu street, some say by
one of lirS comjianlous, others that he was
shot by an Armenian whom lie was Iryiug
to arrest. On Monday ho died and the
funeral revived the excitement hi an in
tensified form, and loud and many were
the threats of massacre that lUght, and
hundreds of the Armenians rushed to places
of safety. Nothing occurred, perhaps, on
account of the rain.
The next morning, October S, all dis
persed In the hope tlint the danger was
past. Men went to their shops and were'
encouraged to open them as they had not
done for two or three days previous.
Suddenly, like a clap of thunder lu a
clear sky, Uto thing began at about 11
a. iu. Unsuspecting people walking along
the streets were shot ruthlessly down.
Men standing or sitting quietly at their
shop doors were instantly dropped with
a bullet through their heads or hearts.
Some were slashed with swords until life
was extinct.
They passed through the quarters where
only old men, women, and children re
mained, killing Uie men and large hoys,
generally permitting "Iho women and
younger children to live. For five hours
this work of Inhuman butchery went on.
Then the sound of musketry died away
and the work of looting began. Every
shop of an Armenian tn Uie market was
A correspondent In Constantinople savs:
"The estimate of killed is lower than the
truth. The Turks have ravaged the Ar
menian villages above TreBizond, and bow
far the thing has spread is not yet known.
Men Just In from Trebizond say that lvOOO
hare been killed in the villages, but this
can not be other than guess work. Even
here In the city we don't know at the end
of two weeks exactly how many were killed
here. The number Is probably rather over
than under 200."
An affair very similar to that at Trc-
"bizoud occurred the same day at AkJIissar,
tbe second station beyond Adabtizar nn tlie
Anatolia railway and about 100 miles
from Constantinople. There about flfty
Armcnlans were killed anil many thousand
dollars worth of goods looted In the market.
In this case the order to attack came
from the mudlr of the village and was un
provoked. A3 soon as the thing was over the Turks
threw the bodies into wells, except ten or
twelve, aud filled up the wells and declared
thnt'theie had been no massacre, but a
brawl.' But the wells have been excavated
and have given up their dead.
Both at Trebizond and at Ak Hissar
men were ordered not to attack women. At
Ak Hissar the reason was openly glveur
"After the men are all killed the women
