CHICAGO, Oct. 7.—Branded by the police as one of the most remarkable liars they have ever, dealt with, Henry Spencer, whose "death list" of more than a score of victims he claimed to have murdered fumbled like a stack of evidence today of cauls, gave every being in peril of a nervous collapse. Spencer passed s restless night. Early today the man who yesterday boast fully recited the details of alleged gory trimes with a smile, was pacing ner vously his eell at'detective headquarters tearing his hair and crying. Captain Hnlpin said today that he would not be surprised if the prisoner toinpletcly changed his attitude und de nied he even murdered Mrs. Mildred Al lison-Rexront, the "Chicago dancing teacher, for whose slaying he was in dicted by the Du Page county grand jury late yesterday. To make certain they "had the goods witnesses who knew the who frequented Oleson's the tango in him,'' "Spencer'' dancing academy with Hructor, were brought to headquarters and identified Spencer. The suitcase found in his room wr.s identified ns that of his alleged victim. "This man Spencer Is one of the He dis on most remarkable prisoners 1 ever questioned," said Halpin. "We were certain that he was not under the Influence of opium when he was ar rested and yet he told a purely im aginative story that for a while fool ed the whole department, played an almost uncanny knowledge of some recent Chicago murders. He V a victim of what is called 'Stir' Insanity brought on by long prison confinement." The police still believe that Spen cer, in addition to killing the dancing teacher, may have slain Mrs. Anna bel Wight, who was beaten to death with a hammer and robbed last De rember.

Wiggins, murderer and bandit, who killed him self early Monday morning a week ago in a lodging house at Fourth and Shipley streets when besieged by a squad of pollceipen. The investigation will begin on Monday afternoon next at 1.30 o'clock and will continue each afternoon from 1.30 to 5 o clock until it is finished. City Solicitor Hastings will be pres ent at all hearings and will co-oper ate with and be legal adviser of the Police Commission. The commission ers are William H. Bowers, president; Thomas N. Stayton and General I. Puscy Wickersham. The Police Commissioners, at their conference this morning, drew up the following resolution, which they will adopt this afternoon: "Be it resolved. That the Board of Police Commissioners make an invos | ligation of all the circumstances i connected with the attempt to arrest! , Homer C. Wiggins by the police of; the city of WHImington. and that the City Solicitor be requested to be pres ent and assist with the investigation." It is altogether likely that the in vestigation will be sweeping, and not only will deal with the action of the police at the "Battle of Baxter's Corner." but also will go back to the jtime the search began for Wiggins after his escape from the Eastern Penitentiary and the car barn rob bery. The Investigation In all proba bility also will endeavor to bring out whether there is factionalism In the Police' Department, which impression has grown recently since the Wig ( gins' inquest.
