HOLMES MOVED 10 TERRS By the Introduction of MissYohe as a Witness. HE EXAMINED HER HIMSELF Judge Arnold Made a Ruling in the Prison er's FavoF, But it Will Hardly Save Him. Philadelphia, Oct. 31.—The first gleam of hope that has come to Holmes since he was arraigned for the murder of B. F. Pletzel today broke through the rift of the dark cloud of damaging evidence In which he had been enveloped. The decision of the court ruling certain evi dence out left the prosecution in confu sion and Incorrectness. The district at torney asked for time in which to rear range his case. The court granted the request and the regluar night session was not held. The case went over until tomorrow. Despite the direction of the court In refusing to admit testimony showing that Holmes killed the Pietzel children, District Attorney Graham is convinced that the evidence he has al ready presented to the Jury will convict Holmes. Although the direct evidence possessed by the commonwealth that Holmes killed Pletzel is circumstantial, so strong is this chain of presumptive testimony that to anyone who has fol lowed It there can hardly remain a doubt that on that Sunday in September a year ago Holmes killed Pletzel In the house at 1316 Callchlll street. Notwith standing the decision, of Judge Arnold today, much indirect evidence has been introduced showing that Holmes unques tionably made away with the Pletzel children, and this. In every probability, will have weight with the Jury, and even If unconsciously,will in all likeli hood Influence their minds In arriving at a verdict in the case before tomorrow. The declsison of Judge Arnold and the confronting In the witness box of Holmes by the woman whom he deceived Into be lieving she was his legal wife was the leading feature of the proceedings today. After several witnesses had testified tills morning tne name oi miss juue was called. Holmes had expected that the woman whom he had lured Into mar riage with the belief that he was single would be called upon to give testimony aglnst him, but the prospect of her ap pearance In the witness box completely unnerved him. He called eagerly to his counsel and urged them with eagerness to object to the witness. In the mean while, however. Miss Yohe had taken her place on the stand. From his behavior as she did so it would seem as if Holmes really loved the woman. As she came forward his pallid face flushed and then his blood retreated, leaving him ghastly white. He looked appealingly at her, but she carefully avoided glancing In his di rection. When the girl so evidently evaded even so much as looking at him Holmes bowed his head and struggled with a sob that shook his frame while, he wiped the tears from his face. He ap pealed piteously to his lawyers to have the witness taken from the stand. They combatted as well as they could th£ evi dence of the district attorney that Miss Yohe was not his legal wife and was therefore Incompetent under the statutes of this state to testify against the pris oner. The testimony that there was one and probably two other women with whom Holmes had gone through a legal marriage ceremony was convincing and Judge Arnold allowed Miss Yohe to tes tify. Before she began her testimony Holmes’ counsel stated to the court that the prisoner would cross-examine the witness himself. Miss Yohe was one of the wives of the prisoner, but beyond the proving that Peltzel called on Holmes the day before he was killed and that Holmes told her that he had an engage ment with Pletzel on the next day and was absent from the house from 10 in the morning until 4:30 In the afternoon on Sunday, her evidence was not so dam aging as those In the court expected. Throughout the period in which the events occurred she was constantly with Holmes, but he readily deceived her as to the time for their hurried movements from city to city by specious lies.. Dur ing Miss Yohe's testimony Holmes re covered his composure and when he arose to cross-examine her his voice was stead ier and louder than It had been for some time. His examination of the witness was not long and he suceeded In abstract ing from her statements that were favor able to himself. Holmes did not con clude his examination, but gave notice that he would recall her as a witness foil himself. At the afternoon session Detective Geier, who traced Holmes’ movements with the Pletzel children and discovered their bodies, was placed upon the stand. Mr. Graham started to have the witness tell of the finding of the bodies of the Pletzel children, but the defense made the most stubborn fight that it has waged Istnce the trial began. The Jury was sent from the room and the question of ad missibility of the evidence was argued. Mr. Graham made an impassioned and really eloquent speech for the introduc tion of Geier’s testimony and Mr. Rolan replied In a remarkably able manner for a young and comparatively inexperienced lawyer. Judge Arnold decided without hesitation that the killing of the chil dren had no direct bearing upon the mur der of Pletzel. He said if Holmes was ac quitted here he could be taken to either Toronto or Indianapolis to be tried for the murders committed there and that he ruled the evidence out. The attorneys for the defense were Joy ful over the decision of the Judge and they now affect to believe that there is a prospect of the jury returning a verdict of acquittal against Holmes, as they claim no evidence has been produced showing directly that the prisoner kilted Pletzel. On the contrary, Mr. Graham is equally confident that he has placed a noose around Holmes’ neck by the evi dence he has already presented. Judge Arnold's decision has cut off the testi mony of about fifty witnesses for the commonwealth from Indianapolis, To ronto and other places, and in this case the prosecution will call but two more witnesses. One of these witnesses will be Dr. Loff man. an expert chemist, who will testify to the effect produced by the Inhalation of chloroform upon the system of a hu man being. The defense has no wit nesses except those of the commonwealth that they will call in their behalf. This will probably be disposed of in a compar atively short time. At all events there now seems no likelihood that the trial will extend beyond Saturday at the far thest. AT REST. Peter Zinszer’s Remains Interred in Oak Hill Cemetery Yesterday. The mortal remains of Peter Zlnszer w^re laid to rest In Oak Hill cemetery yesterday afternoon In the midst of sor rowing friends.

Comer Entertains Mr. Spencer. Savannah, Ga., Oct. 31.—H. M.

San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 31.—District Attorney Barnes finished his closing ar gument for the prosecution In the Du rant case this afternoon.

FITZ AND CORBETT WHIPPED Governor Clarke Has Succeeded in Whipping 8oth of Them—Julian Does Intr of Talking. T-Ittle Rock, Oct. 31.—From all appear ances Fitzsimmons will not be at liberty to participate In a prize fight for sev eral days to come. The legal proceedings Indicate that while Judge Martin will not strain the law against the lengthy Aus tralian, neither will he hurry the pro ceedings along in order to oblige the pu gilistic contingent. If this view of the case Is correct Fltz may be detained here for a week while the attorney-general and the lawyers for the Hot Springs Ath letlo club argue the legal points. But even if it were assured that Fitzsimmons would be discharged from custody to morrow there is always the absolute cer tainty that the redoubtable Governor Clarke would be on his trail again with some species of legal weapon within five minutes. The governor Is enlisted for the war and evidently means to serve out his term of enlistment. He is enjoying the satisfaction of holding a prize fighter captive within a stone’s throw of the state capitol and Is reluctant to relin quish the pleasing sensation. He is not likely to do so as long as he has means at his hand to prevent Lanky Bob’s exit from Arkansas' capital, and he declared that he had fresh ammunition for any possible phase of the situation that may develop. It was 9:30 o’clock this morning when Fitzsimmons and Julian arrived in the city over the Cotton Belt road in the custody of Sheriff Dillard of Texar kana. With the party were J. N. Cren shaw and W. E. Casey, who, however, were not under arrest. The party were driven to the Capitol hotel, where they registered In a hopeful spirit as “en They were assigned to rooms on the third floor, and with a local deputy sher iff as doorkeeper settled down to await their appearance in court at 2 o’clock. Julian spoke bitterly of the reports that had been telegraphed over the coun try to the efTect that Fitzsimmons had thrown himself in the way of Sheriff Dillard. "That statement," he declared, "is a lie, pure and simple. We knew nothing of,either of the sheriffs. The Hot Springs people sent us no word of anything of the kind from the time they left up to the present moment. We know nothing about any arrangements that had been made to get us safely to Hot Springs if any such arrangements were made. We were left completely In the dark, to feel our way if we could. Neither Fitz simmons nor myself are mind readers, and we could not be expected to pick out friends from enemies simply by looking at them. But, as I said, the truth Is that the Hot Springs sheriff himself surren dered us to the sheriff of Texarkana when the latter made a demand on him. We had no choice in the matter. The Hot Springs man made a mild kick on giving us up, but it did not go. "That special train story is another sample of the way the Corbett crowd tried to do us up. They said we refused to go on a special train that would have taken us through to Hot Springs without molestation. Now, in the first place, I never saw that special train, and if I had seen it I would not have gone on the same car with Joe Vendig, who verybody knows has been trying to do us up ever since the match was made. I believe he would have Jobbed us somehow. The amount of it is we have been getting the the worst of it right along. We were war ranted protection from the legal authori ties, and, as you see, we were arrested 1 as soon as we stepped over the saeY .tou os soon as we stepped over the state. You may say for Fitzsimmons that. In epite of all the bad faith we have had to encounter, he is ready as soon as we get out of this muss to fight Corbett or any body else as originally proposed. His 110,000 is ready and so is he." Fitz indorsed what his manager said and added that he was sick and tired of being lied about and misrepresented, and he has about quit talking for publi cation until he had fought Corbet. At 2 o'clock the pugilist and his man ager appeared before J. W. Martin in the circuit court. Mayer Watetrs of the Hot Springs Athletic club had telegraphed 'Julian that the attorneys for the club could not reach Little Rock until to morrow, and consequently when Assis tant Attorney-General Hemmlnway re quested a continuance until tomorrow afternoon because of Attorney-General Ivingsworthy there was no opposition. The pugilistic pary returned to the hotel in the custody of a deputy sheriff. Un der the law Fitzsimmons and Julian may be held In bonds not excedlng $5000 each to kep the peace If the court decides that they contemplated a breach thereof. Governor Clarke was mildly and plac idly happy this evening. "1 have de clared all along.” he said,, “that there would be no prize fighting in Arkan sas on October 31. As you see, there has been none. You will also see that there will be no prize fighting In Arkansas on any other date so long as I am governor. The resources at my disposal aret fully equal to any emergency, and the prize fighters and their patrons will save time and money by keeping out of this state. "Deliver Ua From Can’t. Morning Advertiser. ' The New York Tribune Is doing a great deal of talking through its dhapeau now adays about the "venerable social Insti tution, known as ‘the weekly rest.’ ” the institution In question -flelng Sunday. We observe, however, that in spite of this “venerable social institution” the Tribune continues to be Issued regularly every Monday, the work on which is perfomed the day before. If Sunday is “the weekly .rest” it is evident that the fact has not yet found Its way into the editorial, com posing and press rooms of our neighbor of the tall tower. Probably this Is an oversight, and now that the attention of that Journal has been called to it no doubt it will be Immediately rectified. The Morning Advertiser yields to none in its respect for the sanctity of the first day of the week, but let us have no cant or hypocrlcy upon the subject. If the United States has any disposition to enforce the principles enunciated in the Monroe doctrine, the Washington government cannot abandon the cause of Venezuela, and the only consistent course is to compel the English lion to keep his paws off that country.—Saginaw Courier Herald.
