April 28.— The attack of Bishop Kelley, of Sa vannah, on President Roosevelt, in an address delivered there Saturday created great interest among lead ing Catholic authorities here. It is slated authoritatively that there is no likelihood of any action on the part of the church. The Bishop is an American citizen and has a right to give expression to his views so far as they are not derogatory to religion. Tie always has been an ardent Soutlieruor and often has expressed most intense views regarding the cause for which he fought in the days of the Confederacy.

Foxhounds barked at the man in the moon and the neighbors simply pranced about their rooms for they couldn't sleep and then they went to the city hall where they secured the law and Adams to the court did haul. This morning it was a case of where, 0 I 1 where are the foxhounds gone, oh where 0 I 1 where could they be. Eighteen witnesses for the State and for Adams twenty-three. Gar rett defended the neighbors and a nuisance the barking did call. Adams said his dogs were good and so did J. Frank Ball. The women came by the dozen, they talked in a musical strain and tho tales of dogs were told iu a rather neighborly strain. When the case was called Mr. Garrett asked to amend the informa tion. Mr. Ball then asked that the ease he dismissed as it was quite a differ ent case. Permission was granted to withdraw the information and therefore there was nothing before tho court. The court dismissed the charge and he was then charged with hav ing between January 1 and April 10, 1902, allowed dogs on his prem ises, No. 508 East Eleventh street, by barking and howling to the an noyance of John Wolf. Mr. Ball asked that tho informa tion lie quashed as it was brought in the name of the Deputy City So licitor and not by the City Solicitor. Tho court overruled the motion. James L. Leech, was the lirst wit ness called by trie State. He testllied that be owns trie property, No. 508, East Eleventh street, Mr. Ball ob jected to trie testimony as to wlien he rented the qroperty. He claimed that the Information dId not show that it was for the well beiDg of the city of Wilmington. The court overhauled the objection. To Mr. Garrett 1 rent the property to John 1\ Adams, He occ upics the stable. John Wolf teatifled be resides at No. 103.1 Pine street, within a stones throw of Adam's stable. Adams bad dogs at the stable and they howled and barked at night. lie made no complaint, They woke him up at night. To Mr. Ball, lie was in bed but did not get up to see where the noise came from. He heard the dogs howl four or five limes in four months. He never saw the dogs on these premises. George A. Wolf, of No. 511 Sher man street, saw dogs on tho premises When asked if the dogs annoyed him, Mr. Ball objected, but the ob jection was overruled, lie heard the dogs day and night. He was positive tlie noise came from Mr. Adam's place on East Eleventh street, Mrs. Wintrup testified that she resides at No. 1018 Lombard street. She can see the yard and stable from her backdoor..' She lias heard the dogs howl so loud at night that the people could not sleep. She looked out one night and the sound came from the Adams yard. This was be fore Christmas. There is only one dog in the neigh borhood and it has not sense enough to bark. She lias no uso for dogs. A dog that would bowl In her opinion is a nuisance, Emil C. Oelrich, of No. 507 Sher man street testified that his yard joins tlie yard of Adams stable. He got up at night and heard the dogs howl and bark. It was he who got up the petition after having an argument with Adams. He had cot been in Adams' place since Oc tober. He told Mr. Adams that Ihe dogs did not annoy him last year and he said it was David Lemou who caused the trouble over the dogs. Mrs. Lizzie Davis of No. 503 Sher man street testified tlmt she saw- tlie dogs howling and barking at night. After hearing six witnesses on each side the court imposed a fine of $5 and costs amounting $21.35. Sarah .Jackson, colored, pleaded guilty to being drunk but could not staud for being disorderly.

Laurel, Del.. April 28.—There la naught but myst ry in the murder of Mrs. Elmer Collins who was found si a in farmhouse, about five miles from here. The confession made yes terday bv a hail William Waite Prattjia repudiated. He himself denies today every word he uttered yesterday, He says the confession was wrung from him by force; that the Pinkerton detectives gave him the third degree, aod that in the torture lie made the coufes even going iuto minute- do tails of the manner in which he slew Mrs. Collins. Stranger still, Pratt welt over the scene of the murder pointing out details and pretending to tell where the bloody iron bar and clothing and money had been bur ied. But search as tiler would, none of this incrlmiuatlog -evidence could he found at any of the plac indicaled by Pratt. The negro told an entirely differ ent tale in tlie jail at Georgetown to day. He said lie had never in his e seen Mrs. Collins and that lie was many miles from tlie Collins farm on t'heday of the murder. With tlie negro's reputation of his confes sion comes a renewal pt the suspicion against Elmer Collins, although he still protests his innocence. The feeling is so high, indeed that it is believed that lie may he re-arrested berore many days and his *500 had bond cancelled. State Detective James Ratlcdge, spent all to-day with Collins. They went over tlie scene cf tile murder again, but ihc detective tailed to get one word from the suspect that might loud to show his guilt. Ho refused to answer questions, and postively refusod to assist in the Investigation until his father ri ad been brought to his house. Then the three men went over the ground thoroughly, butColllns never flinclied lie even asserted that lie was sure the iiegto Pratt wys tlie murderer, and that the authorities would be convinced of it before long. Tlie State detectives refuse to take any stock in the confession forced from Pratt Dy tlie Pinkerton men, aud in this conviction they are backed by public sentiment. They admit, however, that they are at a loss to discover a motive for Collins to kill his wife and this is the miss ing link for which they are zealous ly searching tonight (strangely enough one of Collins staunchest | champions is his wifes younger sis-, ter Rose Counts, who stayed much ot her time at the home ot her | pnor to the muiilei | .She left the Collins homo on April 11, the day before the murder was committed, going on a visit to the home of another sister at Exmore, Va. Khe return ed the next day and at once became the champion of Collins, declaring to him and others her belief in his | I Aoril 12. at the Collius itted negro. si an, brother-in-law, of her sister. innocence. Since that time Miss Collins has,. been a frequent visitor at the home j of her brother-in-law. On several occasions she has carried supplies to him, and was there to receive him! on the day, a week ago, when he was released on bail. She had brought his two children from the homo of her father, three miles away. Collins remarked to one of his friends: "It certainly looks home ri-,. .,.*,1 i lu ..Liuivun like with Lose aud the diildun ,„ e ' ...

These articles were submitted to tlie Stale chemist to determine whether vere made by human blood. The detectives also have tlie siloes worn by Waite, which they say tit exactly in the tracks leading from the Collins house to the thicket, 300 yards away. It was reported today that Ilia detectives had dug up some bloody clothing near this thicket. i as the st.iius "1 have never heard Waite yet say lie killed Mrs. Collins," declared Sheriff Hart this afternoon. was present when he made the confession, but 1 have not heard him say he hill ed the woman. " "Doesn't that statement he is sup posed to have made make him say he killed Mrs. CulliusV" trie sheriff was asked "Y " lie replied. ;"What I know about this case is locked up here,-' added the sheriff significantly, tap ping bis left breast, "and nobody can get it out." Funnel' Attorney-General Robert C. While is of theopioion that Waite killed Mrs. Collins. Mr. White, by tlie way, is counsel for Elmer Collins, the young husband whu Is accused by tlie state detectives. "I believe that Waite is as guilty of this murder as Gordy was of tlie murder for which he was hanged,'' said Mr. White. "This confession is simply the wool to fill the warp. There will be other evidence. "There will be live witnesses who say they saw tin's negro Waite at Rortsvlllc tlie night before Mrs. Col lins was murdered. When a sheep lias been slain, and u non is in tlie fold, von can't liclp but believe that tlie lion did tlie slaughter. " .Stale Detective llatledgc arrived here this evening, and had a brief interview wltil Waite. ,Tho detective does not place much credence in tlie "confession" of tlie negro, and points to tlie failure to find the bloody shirt or tlie money as an important fea ture tiiat shows tlie "confession'' to be worthless. IS tlie brunt of Hie work. A general Impression exists here that Waite is of uiisoiiud mind. Denton, Md., April 23,—It is be lieved that William Waite Prntt is about tlirce ........
