PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 27. - 11. H.
Holmes or Herman Mudgetr, whose
name or alias has rung throughout the
length and hreadth of the continent as
tho most unscrupulous and skillful mur
derer of modern times, will he placed on
trial for his life tomorrow morning in
ihe court of oyer and terminer of this
city. 'J he specified charge to which be
will he called upon to answer ii the mur
der of linjamin F. Pietzel, and he bas
already o'Mciallv declared himself not
guilty. The revolting details of the many
crimes with which Holmes' name boa
been directly or indirectly connected,
have been given rjimh publicity, and
the cold, implacable demeanor which has
characterized the man throughout, bas
been so frequently commented upon tbat
the trial will probably pass into history
as the most celebrated case known to the
criminal annais of the western hemi
sphere. The commonwealth Las already
expended thousands of dollars in iis
efforts to bring (he prisoner to summary
justice, and there is an indication that
should a conviction for murder In the
first degree he obtained, be will be quick
ly "railroaded" to the gallows.
Witnesses have been brought to this
city from Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis,
Irvington, Ind., and almost every city
where Holmes is known tn have lived at
various times. What revelations these
witnesses will make has been kept a pro
found secret by the prosecuting officers,
but there is expectation of sensational
Detective Gever has been for months
traveling extensively throughout the
country in search of evidence of Holmes'
movements, and will be one ot tbo prin

The skull and portions of the body of
Pletzel.as well as the remains ol tlie boy,
Howard Pietzel, who is thought to have
been murdered by Holmes in Indianap
olis, will be exhibited during tbe course
of tlie trial.
Judge Arnold will be upon tha bench
ami he has already signified his intent'on
of holding three sessions a day —morning,
afternoon and night—so long as the per
sons interested can stand the strain. Tbe
prosecution will be in the hands of Dis
trict 1 Attorney Oraham ami a corps of as
sistants, while the interests of the prison

Consequent upon the widespread pub
licity givoa the case, it is feared that
se w, raldays will be occupied in securing
a jury of men who have not already
formed decided opinions concerning the
guilt or innocence of Hoimes. It is im
possible to learn even approximately the
number of witnesses to be called on
oitherside, but that there will be a good
ly number is apparent trom the prerau
lions that will be taken to insure tbeir
entrance to tbe court room.
Announcements have been made that
only those who have ousiness thorein
will he admitted and that an increased
corps of court officers, augmented by a
detail of reserve policemen, will enforce
this order at the doors.
Tho murder of Pitzel, if murder it was,
occurred more than a yeat ago. Tho
body, burntd anil blackened as if by an
explosion, was discovered in tho house
No. 1320 Callowhill street, this city, on
September 8,1894. As be had been known
as an inventor named l'erty, tbe supposi
tion was that he had mot death by ac
cident while experimenting. Subsequent
ly the charge was matte that Pitzel had
been murdered by Holmes in an attempt
to defraud the Fidelity Mutual i,ife asso
ciation uf Philadelphia out of $lO,uoo,
Which had been paid by the company to
Mrs. Pitzel, who' was supposed to have
been a part; to the conspiracy, Holmes
having, first introduced Pitzel to the com
pany, jiolmes was arrested in Bolton
November 17th. and Mrs. Pitzel is in
custody as probably the principal witness
against him. There is a likelihood of
ttie case consuming several wcckb time,
unless unforeseen circumstances arise to
bring it to a speedy conclusion.

shown letters from Hot Springs which
tend to confirm tbe belief that a fight
will occur. One of these letters is said
to have come from Attorney Martin, and
stated that preparations were being made
for a private tight. Governor Clark, in

CLEVELAND. <)., Oct. 27.-Spscials to
the Leader from Tiffin say: The city has
been shocked from center to circumfer
ence over the attempt to lynch Marshal
ychultr's slayer last night. It is in a
veritable uproar, the streets having been
thronged all day, some tilled with morbid
curiosity, but many witb trouble written
plainly on their faces. The mub tbat
attacked the jail early this morning waa
composed of the worst specimens of law
dehors that any community oould pro*
ituce. Whisky had been indulged in un
til they were more Hue blood-thirsty
wolves than human beings. To reason
with them meant danger, if not death,
to tho peace-maker.
The moo came from an entirely unex
pected source. The report was current
that a crowd of farmers from Hopewell
township was congregating and organizing
on the outskirts of town, and the attack
was expected to be made by them. But
instead it was done by fellows who had
been circulating in the neighborhood of
tho jail all the evening. It was hardly
supposed that tbey would dare to do
such a thing, and the police made no
effort to quiet them. Thus mutters went
on until 1:15 a.m. Six men gathered on
tbe lawn about fifty feet from th? jail,
and in a moment thirty others joined
them. Then a sharp whistle was beard,
an 1 nut of an alley on the opposite side
of the str3et and a little way to the west,
rushed fully three hundred more, the
leaders carrying a rope and several sledge
