GRUESOME REVELATIONS OF
HOLMES? HORRIBLE OCCU

AN ARTICULATOR'S TALE.
A MAN WHO WAS HIRED TO

GRAVES IX THE QUICKLIME.
Dnst of Two Women and Mats of
Hair Found in a Bed of
CHICAGO, July 27. — More con
clusive evidence than has heretofore
been collected by the police in the
Holmes case was revealed by the
investigation tonight. Inspector
Fitzpatrick believes it to be certain
that at least three murders were
committed in the "castle" of Holmes,
and through witnesses that were
found today it is believed Holmes
can now be convicted of murder in
this city. The police have found a
man, whose name they refuse to di
vulge, but who was brought to the
office of the inspector this afternoon
by Lieut. Thomas and Officer Foley,
of the Cottage Grove avenue sta
tion. He told the police that he had
mounted three skeletons for Holmes,
and that the skeletons were from
bodies taken from the house of
Holmes on Sixty-third street. One
of these he said was the body of a
man, and the other two were wom
en. They were taken from a dark
room in Holmes' house in the night
time, and two of the mounted skel
etons were returned to Holmes. The
flesh of the bodies had not been
stripped from the bones when the
bodies were given to the new wit
ness, but the faces were so badly
lacerated and torn that identifica
tion would have been impossible.
The police also found an expressman
today who was able to give what the
police think is important informa
tion. The name of the expressman
is Charles Humphrey, and in the
month of June, 1893, he was hired
by Holmes to deliver a box and a
trunk at the union depot in this
city. The box, according to Humph
rey, was taken from a dark room
and had the appearance of a coffin
box. This was expressed to Phila
delphia, while the trunk was sent
in another direction.
The story of the man who mount
ed the skeletons is to the effect that
in June, 1593, he was sent for by
Holmes, who at that time was go
ing under the alias of Gordon, and
asked if he would articulate the
skeleton of a man whose body was
in the possession of Holmes. He ac
cepted the job, and by the direction
of Holmes he called at the house on ;
a stipulated night. He was taken !
by Holmes to a room which would
have been dark even in the day
time. Stretched out on a table in
the middle of the room was the body
of a man. The skin was entirely re
moved from the face, but in all other
respects it .*■ was in good condition.
The articulator and Holmes had
some talk as to the best way of get
ting the body out of the house, as
Holmes said he did not want the
neighbors to see it removed. It was
finally agreed that the articulator
should cut off the, arms, and that
Holmes would provide for the re- '
moval of the rest of the ■. corpse, j
This was done, and the articulator I
left the house carrying the arms ;
with him in a sack. He had just
reached his house, and was prepar
ing to go to bed, when ,he was
called to the front door by a loud
knocking. He went down and
found Holmes and another man
there. They had the balance of the
body, which had been cut into two
more pieces after, the articulator
left the house. Holmes left, after !
remarking that he would have an-

other job for the man in a short
time. True to his word, in Decem
ber he sent for the articulator a sec
ond time, and on the arrival of the
latter at the house of Holmes he
was taken to the same dark room,
where en the same table where the
body of a man had 'lain on the oc
casion of his former visit, was the
body of a young woman. The face
of this corpse had been disfigured
in such a manner that it was im
possible to tell what she had looked
like when alive. Y^YYY.Y
The story of the expressman is to
ST. PAUL, MINN., SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 28, 1895.---SIXTEEN PAGES.
I the effect that he was hired by r
Holmes one afternoon, and told not ;
ito come to the house until after
i nightfall. When the expressman
! kept his appointment he was given
a box and a trunk by Holmes and i
told to take them to the union depot. i
When he was putting the box into
the wagon he turned it on end, and i
I was at once stopped by Holmes, who j
told him that he was on no account i
to keep the box in any other posi- I
j tion except flat on the side. The or- i
ders were to take the trunk and box I
• to the depot and leave them on I
the platform, and he was told that j
they would be taken care of. He !
saw only one man at the depot who
seemed to be interested in the trunk I
and the box. After Humphrey had
told his story to the police tonight, j
Pat Quinlan was brought up from j
his cell and the two were placed
face to face. The police will not j
tell why this was done, but the
general opinion is that it was done
because Humphrey recognized Quin
lan as the man at the depot. The
expressman will be retained in cus
! tody as a witness.
HIS THIRD TRIP.
J In January, 1893, the articulator was
I sent for a third time by Holmes, and in
i the same room and on the same table
j he found the body of a second young
i woman, from whose face all the skin
j had been removed. The articulator
! had this body taken to his home, where
j he stopped the bones and mounted the
i skelton. When he called on Holmes
i for his pay the latter refused to give it
i to him, and was, moreover, somewhat
J in arrears on the bill for mounting the
two previous skeltons. The two men
could not come to terms and the dis
pute finally ended by the articulator
j retaining possession of the third skel
ton, and he still has it it in his house.
j He removed the skull tonight and
brought it to the central police station,
I where It now Is. The articulator will
be kept under close surveillance for
j some days yet, as the police do not
I think that he has told them all he
I knows about the murder in the "cas-
I tie." He said at first that Holmes
j called at his house under the name of
i Gordon, and later said that he be
j came acquainted with Holmes through I
j answering an advertisement for a man j
I capable In the work of articulating
j skeletons, and found that the advertise-
S ment had been inserted by Holmes,
j Afterwards he let drop some expres
, sions that showed that he had done
j some work for Holmes prior to the time j
' that he claimed his acquaintance with
i him began. This discrepancy in his
j story decided the police to keep a close
. watch on him. The police declare that
! they have almost positive proof that
J the first female body was that of
I Emeline Cigrand and the second that of
Annie Williams. It is the skull of
. Annie Williams that is now at the
central police station.
J BURIED IN QUICKLIME.
In prosecuting the investigation of
j the basement of the big brick house on
j Sixty-third street today the workmen
employed by the police came upon two
graves. The indications are that in
| the graves were laid the bodies of Mm
J nic and Annie Williams. Lime and
j quicklime had accomplished their work
j and the bodies had turned to native |
dust, but there still remained sufficient
evidence to make the indentificati.on
possible. Two soft spots in a bed of |
hard clay were the size of human bod- j
ies, and where the heads would have I
been were mats of long hair. One big
strand was of light color, like that of
Annie, while the other was of the'
brown hue of Minnie's hair. '
The juxtaposition of the mats of
hair would indicate that the bodies
had been laid side by side, the heads
but a few inches apart. Twelve men I
worked with picks and shovels in the !
I rear basement of the "castle" today. '
) They were divided into two squads, i
j One squad worked under the the tin i
j shop and the other attacked the dirt |
j bottom of the. cellar, near the rear and I
I west walls. It was clcse to the parti- .
| tion between the rear and front cellars,
j under the stairs leading from the tin (
I shop, that early in the afternoon the j
i two masses of quicklime were found.
I Two bones and masses of hair were
found in them. A long, wooden, shal- '
j low vat was found two feet under the i
ground. It was expected that when j
cleared out evidences that a human I
body had been buried there would be !
found but the examination resulted
i in nothing of the kind. Either it was
a blind sewer or a secret repository.
A LETTER TO PAT.
The police have found a letter from
. Holmes to Pat Quinlan, to which much
importance is attached. The letter is
j as follows:

MURDER OF JULIA CONNOR.
Asphyxiated, Cut Up and Cremat
ed hy Holmes.
CHICAGO, July 27.-Mrs. Patrick
Quinlan lost her defiant spirit in the
police inquisition. Two days' "sweat-
DOX experience proved more than she
£m I»v.beai;1 »v. beai ;. wit equanimity, and she
told the police things which before had
not been acknowledged. Chief of Po
lice Badenoch said: Evidence secured
from Mrs. Quinlan is highly important,
fahe confessed to abetting Holmes in
insurance swindles, and that is a step
in the right direction. Patrick Quin
lan, her husband, continues to protest
he was a mere hireling, and roes not
know Holmes' affairs at all. Mrs. Quin
lan s evidence was that, after Mrs.
Connor s disappearance it became nec
essary for Holmes to produce her to
collect some insurance. Mrs. Quinlan
consented to act in her place. She
went to the insurance office and swore
she was Mrs. Connor, and signed that
name. According to the statements of
Jonathan Belmont it was Christmas
night, four years and six months ago,
that Mrs. Connor was killed.
He believes she was asphyxiated in
her room while she slept. Her room
was a small one adjoining the dark
! bath room in the "castle." When all
was still in the house Holmes switched
on the gas. When the deed was ac
complished Holmes stealthily admitted
himself through- the secret door of the
bath room, lifted the inanimate form
ol Mrs. Connor from the bed, and car
ried it to the bath room. Then, placing
the body in the bath tub, he proceeded
to cut It to pieces, and fed them to a
hot fire in the stove. When all was
done he took the ashes and parts of
the body that had not been entirely
burned and buried them in lime in the
The police believe the chain of evi
dence against Pat Quinlan now com

A HISSING BROTHER.
"Horace Williams Disappeared Be
fore His Sisters Were Rilled.
CHICAGO, July 27.— William Capps.
the Fort Worth, Texas, attorney who
is here in behalf of the heirs of the'
Williams sisters, advanced a rather
startling theory today, which if found
to be true, will add another victim
to the long list of murders already
credited to Holmes. According- to
Capps, Minnie R. Williams ' had a
brother named Horace A. Williams in j
Denver, Col. This young man either 1
was killed or disappeared ' in May .or
June, ISS3, shortly before the supposed
murder of the Williams .sisters. The
manner of his death iSjiiot known to
the attorney, but he says he has ascer
tained that the young man was insured '
for $2,500 in favor of his sister Minnie.
This fact Mr. Capps considers to be
decidedly peculiar, as he says it is not
reasonable to suppose Horace Williams
would insure his life in favor of a sis
ter who was already wealthy. He said
that his Investigations upon this point
were in an uncompleted state, but
from what he had learned he was of the
opinion that Holmes had first insured
the young man and then been instru
mental In causing his death.

HELENA, Mont., July 27. — The
proposed consolidation of the Great
J Northern and Northern Pacific sys
| terns, which have over 1,400 miles of
railroad in Montana, has stirred up
the people of -this state to a degree
that promises to result in an extra

members of that body and a number
of prominent citizens have been in
conference during the past two days
with Gov. Rickards relative to the
propriety of calling an extra ses
sion, and the governor is inclined to
issue the call if it becomes neces
sary to prevent the consolidation of
the two roads. The state constitu
tion forbids consolidation of com
peting roads, and as all the branches
of both roads were organized under
the state laws, all the legislature
will have to do is to pass a law put
i ting the constitutional provision in
to effect. If it becomes evident that
consolidation will be effected a spe

Defense Promises to Spring a Sur
, FARGO, N. D., July 27.— Thomas
\ Swedinskey was on the stand all day
today In the famous Kent murder
case, and he was put through a vig
orous cross-examination by Attorney
I 'Hlldreth. He did not move him a great
deal, although Swedinskey was pretty
well mixed at times. His famous lit
tle book of instructions was examined
thoroughly, and it was translated by
Swedinskey from the Bohemian lan
guage. He got a little bit indignant on
■ the stand today when the attorney
■asked him the question, "Did you
think that they were going to hang
you, Tom?" He arose in his seat and
| (burst out, ''I don't care what they do
i with me. They can hang me if they
| want." Kent displayed a great deal
| of emotion whenever his wife's name
j--ls mentioned. Attorney Hildreth an
nounced to the court this afternoon that
they had some questions to ask Swe
dinskey Which could not be asked in
the presence of the ladies j assembled
In the court room. It is thought that
the defense will spring a surprise
Monday by charging Swedinskey with
an attempt to assault Mrs. Kent, and
failing shot her dead.'. The testimony
today has been of an uninteresting na
ture, being mostly repetition of the
story of the crime.

be read and heeded by every person ii(
the city: \
To the People of St. Paul: The close/
of the state census, .which will occul
on next Wednesday, the 31st Inst., will
mark an Important" In the history!
of our city. The citizens' census comi
mittee has devoted two months of uni
remitting labor towards securing a
complete enumeration of our people}
The obstacles which it has encountered]
have been numerous and, in manyj
cases, difficult to overcome; but in thai
prosecution of its work the committer
has hoped that those of our citizen*?
who are most vitally interested in tha 1
prosperity of our city would render
such assistance as the Importance ol
a thorough enumeration demands. Thi-f
hope, however, has been far from reaM
ized, the instances being comparatively",
few in which those who are to ba
most benefited or injured through thai
result have evinced even the slightest?
interest in the work thus being prose-'
cuted. The importance of this enum
eration will not be appreciated until-'
comparisons are made with other cities'*
upon the basis of the results of this*
census. The future growth of our city;* 1
Its commercial interests, its realty val-;
ues, its importance as a manufacturing]
and railroad center, its legislative rep
resentation and influence —in facts -
everything that pertains to its futura(
prosperity— largely dependent upon,'
this census. . :
Prompt and vigorous action is neces-,'
eary if a thorough enumeration is to bet
secured. Only three days yet remain!
for omissions to be reported. Will you
not devote a day, or even an hour, to (
this work? Inquire of your friends and'
acquaintances whether or not they.,
have been enumerated, and report all
omissions not later than next Wednes- 1
day morning. ""*,-,

EDWARD FORGOT HIMSELF. '
Miss Minnie Ott Asserts She Was

Edward E. Rossler wasaccused, in the
municipal court yesterday, of striking'
Miss Minnie Ott. Rossler is an agent
for the American Wringer company.
Miss Ott had consented to accept a
pair of lace curtains at the hands of
the wringer company, it being under
stood that she would pecuniarily re- '
ciprocate at certain definite intervals.
Mr. Rossler called in connection with
this happy arrangement, but unhappily
marred the whole affir by seeking to
anticipate the almanac. He said a
money balance ws due. So, at least,
Miss Ott claims, and she replied, with
the" naive artlessness of a young girl,
that the balnce was not due. Mr.
Rossler then had recourse to the last
argument of kings, and was about to
use force in securing the curtains. Un
- able to detect his crown or sceptre,
Miss Ott's mother refused to recogniza
the propriety of Mr. Rossler' kingly
position and abruptly shut the door -in
his face. It is charged that Mr. Ros*
sler cast all his weight of his majesty
upon the door, forced it open, and gava
Miss Ott the royal accolade with a large
brown fist. He will exhibit his family
tree to Judge Orr tomorrow.

Peremptory Demand Likely in tin
- WASHINGTON, July Ex-Consul
Waller, now in prison at Marseilles,
France, undergoing sentence of twenty
years for alleged giving information to.
the enemy of the movements of French
troops In Madagascar, has written a
letter to his stepson, Paul Bray, in
which he discloses his defense. He de
clares the only evidence against him
was found in letters written to his
wife and one or two friends, in which
he complained of the action of certain
individual French soldiers. He posi
tively denies that he gave information
to any one of the movement of tha
French troops. Officials of the state
department are anxiously awaiting in
formation from Ambassador Eustis aa
to the manner in which a second de
mand for the record of Waller's court
martial had been received In France.
There is good reason for believing, in
case of second refusal by France to
supply the records, a third demand
will be made which will be peremp-.

WASHINGTON, July 27.— 1t if
learned at the state department thai
James B. Long, to whom the Mexican
government is reported to have re
fused, an exequatur, was really named
as United States commercial agent at
the small town of Paral, in the stats
of Chihuahua, and not a:** consul gen
eral at Chihuahua, which office does
not exist. The place is worth nothina
in emoluments and has no salary al
lowance. Mr. Long, who is a native ol
Pennsylvania, is a resident of Paral,
and at the suggestion of • the United
States consul at Chihuahua, based on
a desire to have some one at hand ta
look out for American interests in
Paral, the state department selected
him as a commercial agent. If thu
Mexican government has declined td
Issue to him a certificate of recognition,
which it has an unquestionable- right
to do, the state department will droi
the matter and allow the place to g<
without an agent.
