The Holmes charnel house yielded new horrors today. Several inpro bones and a smalt piece of dress gooJs have been found there. The discovery was made when the search was resumed In the basement of the Ilclmes premises this morn- Ing. Before the police had been at work an hour two moro human bones were found mouldering In the damp earth of the base ment nnd with them a bit of discolored cloth , apparently a pcrtlon of a woman's dress. Ono of the bones found , a shoulder blade , was appparcntly that of an adult , while the other , also a collar bone , was smaller and appeared to be that of a child. The police by the discovery today were confirmed in their belief that the skeletons being un. covered are those of the missing Mr& . Con < ner and her daughter , Pearl , Mrs. Pat Qulnlan , wife of Holmes' ex > janitor , was found by the police today am given a severe cross examination. She hat been reported as missing but declared tha tint had made no attempt to hide herself What evidence she was able to give ngalns Holmes the police refuse to say and Mrs Qulnlan had evidently been Instructed by thi ( lctcctv ! < M io maintain strict silence re gardlng the case. The story that Qulnlan's 11-year-old daugh ter had been murdered by Holmes was dls posed of today when n Mrs. Doyle callpd a police headquarters and declared that the gli was now with her father's parents nine mile from Scuth Haven , Mich. Mrs. Doyle sal that her mother owned the house In Toront In which the bodies ot the Pitzel chlldre were found. Her apparent familiarity wit the case was considered strange , but nothln regarding Holmes' record could be tcarne from her. The police after an extended Intervlei with Mrs. Doyle became certain that sh would bo a valuible witness. She dlsclalme any particular knowledge of Holmes , but I an ungarded moment remarked that th pictures of the Pitzel children , publlshe In the Chicago papers , were gocd ones. Whe her attention was called to the statcmer Mra. Doyle hesitatingly acknowledged th : she had met Pitzel and knew the famll el'ghtly. All efforts to get her to talk freel were unavailing. LEAUNED OF ANOTHER VICTIM. That the police regard Mrs Doyle as a exceedingly Important witness was evidence by the care with which they guarded he while she submitted to a newspaper Intervlev It Is evident that through her the police hav learned of another of Holmes' alleged victim who had not heretofore been heard of. In tall Ing to a reporter Mr ? . Doyle said that one c the prettiest of the women who ever cam under Holmes' Influence Is also missing. Ht name was MIs3 Clgrand and she was orlt inally from Indiana , said Mrs. Doyle , and s ) was on the point of giving further Informatlc when the police curtly ordered her to ceai talking and ended the Interview. William L. Doyle , the woman's Iiusban who Is a mason and contractor , was found i his homo not far from the Holmes' bulldln In Sixty-third street. Doyle said that in tl latter part of 1891 he rented the flat In tl Holmes block that had been occupied by tl missing Mrs. Connor and her daughter. I eald that he and his wife thus became a qualnted with Holmes and Minnie William Doyle said that Mrs. Connor's dlsappearam dated from 1831 , Instead of 1893 , as has be reported. More proof was found today that Julia Coiner nor Is dead and that she was made away wl by Holmes. It was determined that she dl appeared before June , 1S9J an Important fa tor In the search for her. As late as Noven ber , 1892 , Holmes , as shown by letters vvhl ( have been found , was writing her parents i to her wheretbonts and stating that she hi gone to St. Louis. But on June 5 , 1892 , 1 vvrqte to her brother-in-law , Ira Ynntls , 320 Wardrobe avenue , Waukcsha , WIs. , gl Ing him a fictitious address as to her wher abouts In St. Louts. Yantls wrote back Holmes on June 9 , and this letter was tout yesterday. At that time Yantls had no su plclon that Holmes had made away with r. sister-in-law , and supposed him to be h friend. His letter was written three wee : before the one In which I. L. Connor accus Holmes of breaking faith with him. The IE ter refers to his daughter Pearl. From tli It would appear that Mrs. Connor was kill first and the child afterward. ALL CHARGED UP TO HOLMES. Late today twc well dressed women call on Chief Badenoch and told him that a 1 year-old girl , the daughter of wealthy ai respectable parents , had become acquaint with Holmes during the fall of 1893 , and afti ward disappeared. Where she went or wli became of her has never been ascertained , a her parents , though clinging to the hope tli she Is still alive , fear that she Is dead. Un the recent revelations about Holmes' life we published In the Chicago papers , they did u connect their daughter's disappearance Wl the English druggist , but now that the searc light of Investigation has been turned up the man and his horrible crimes exposed , th are certain that their datighter was one ot 1 victims. The two furnished Chief Bade.no the girl's name and the address of her p : ents. and the chief will InvestlgUe their sto Until he has full corroboratlon , however , Gays he will not disclose the girl's name. I , L. Connor , the husband of Julia L C ( nor and the father oC Pearl Connor. b ( of whom are thought to have been murdei by Holmes , was In Chicago today , and I Inter Ocean tomorrow wlllrun _ a long Int view with him. He has no positive pri that Holmes killed his wife and child , t be believes such to bo the case. He does i know when the crlmo was committed , 1 thinks It was done In this city.

These photographs h been In the hands ot the officers anJ tl now claim to have positive evidence t Holmes was In Omaha In 1891 for a er. time and was here again In 1S93 for scv < months In the employ ot the Elkhorn r road as a special officer. At that time went under the name of II. M , Howard Howard Mudgel , both ot which alia he had used at other places during his 1 career of crime. While In Omaha Holmes stopped for sc time at the St. Clalr hotel anJ afterward the Pullman house. He was seen In the g cral cilices ot the Elkhorn road and the c ductori of that road had him mirked a , spotter. After his tervlce here terminated went to St. Lotus. Omaha police thought one time that Holmes , or Howard ai he ' known to them , was Implicated with Heiipeth train robbing gang. The fact t Hedppeth was Instrumental In giving Holn record to the police lent some color to opinion , but his connection with the g could never bu clearly established. Holmes' l t ylilt to Oinuha vya In Mai 1S93. when he stopped at the Mercha ( pr ft C y . lie claimed then that was going to establish a detective agency n this city. Miss Kate Durkee , who lives with hr rother at 4320 Burdette street , was for- lerly very Intimate with the Wllmette wife f Holmes , who Is now living In Chicago , and whosi maiden name was Dflknap. Of late ears Miss Durkee has visited the Holmes esldence about once a vcar , the last occa- lon bilng In August , 1694. At the time of hcse visits Holmes was living In a nice rcsl- lenco In Wllmette. Some yetrs ago he lived t Sixty-third and Wallace streets , where he 'an ' a drug store , but was not In such good circumstances as he appeared to be In late cars. The latter place Miss Durkee savs she never visited. Since the arrest of Holmes Miss Durkee las not heard from Mrs. Holmes. She Is losltlve , however , that the present Mr . ilolmcs Is the Miss Belknap with whom she was so well acquainted. She Is certain that this wcman has not the slightest knowledge of her husband's crimes. rono.vro WANTS 10 TRY HOI.MKS. 12rnilltloii I'rovecilliiKN Have Al ready lleeli Coninielieeil.

The- verdict of the coroner's Jury In the case of the Pitzel chll- Iren was laid before the attorney general to- lay , nnJ proceedings for the extradition ol Holmes will be at once entered upon. Every effort will be made to have Holmes tried In this city. It Is thought here that Toronto' ! claim will have precedence with the Phila delphia authorities over those of Chicago. The tenant of the cottage In which It Is al leged the murder was done has found a small piece of material , apparently a portion ol what has been a light colored waist , and o scarlet hair string. This furnishes still an. other proof of positive Identification ot the bodies as those of Alice anJ Nellie Pitzel.

PHILADELPHIA , July 25. While the ap plication for extradition ot Holmes , who wa charged with the murder of the two Pltze children by the coroner's Jury In Toronto las night , must necessarily be made to Governo Hastings at Harrisburg and the papers issuei from his office , the question as to whcthe the crhnli al will be taken to Canada to stain trial for murder rests with District Attorne ; Graham Holmes Is a self-convicted consplr ntor and Is now awaiting sentence , so that I remains practically for Mr. Graham to sa ; whether he shall be taken across the borde r remain In this city , where he has loni een suspected of killing Benjamin Pitzel. Th Utrlct attorney Is much pleased with th urn affairs have taken In Toronto He be leves that the result of the deliberations a he coroner's Jury In Toronto Is equivalent t conviction of Holmes In the criminal courl . t Is now almost certain that Holmes will b aken to Canada to answer there for the loody deeds which It Is confidently believe e committed In Toronto last October e Although there has been some talk of s equlsltlon from Chicago authorities fo lolmes , no papers have yet been receive f y the officials here. If Holmes Is sent awa o rom this city to answer for his misdeed r he claim of Fort Worth , Tex. , where he I vanted In connection with the forgery .c J deeds , really comes first , as a detainer wa " lodged some time ago , but the opinion here I hat he will be sent to Canada first , wher ' conviction seems more certain than In Ch I , cage or Philadelphia , because ot the dlrec nature of the evidence. ge Both Holmes and his lawyers have asserte e hat they will not resist extradition proceec ngs from Canada. District Attorney Graham decisively ar nounced that H. H. Holmes will be tried I his city for the murder of Benjamin F. PI zel In the Callowhlll street house. In view ( .ho fact that the district attorney has sal Holmes would be tried wherever the stroni est case could be .made out against him , it believed that the authorities have recentl earned more Important details ot the crln which Insures his conviction , but they vvou' not talk on this feature.

POCATELLO , Idaho , July 25 ( Special Tel egram ) The situation In northwestern W > o mlng , where the Indians are on the war path , has not Improved today. In fact al the advices that have reached this reservatloi are of a directly opposite nature. Adjutan General Stltzer of Wyoming , who was a Market Lake today , was hourly expecting ti hear that a conflict had occurred between th settlers and the Indians In the Jackson Hoi valley. Two of his messengers dispatched ti that district several days ago have not re turned , although overdue , and grave fears ar ncm entertained that they have been am bushed by the Indians. From the other dlrec tfon the news Is of an equally disquieting na ture. Indian police who have returned from th Salt River valley , where the big trading pov \vow has been In progress for a week , &a ; that the band of Bannock Indians under th leadership ot Jim Ballard has started nor' : toward the seat of trouble. If these Indian roach the belligerents In the Fall River valle before the troops get there , and they undoubt edly will , the result may be disastrous. lial lard's band composed of the worst elen en ot the Bannocks , a tribe that In the genera run Is bad enough , for they are as a rul lazy , shiftless , fighting Indians. This partlc ular lot , however , are the restless spirits c the tribe , always ready for a quarrel , even 1 times of peace , and In the present e\citmcri it would require much less leaven than thcs fifty turbulent braves to stir to an Inters pitch the already excited gathering on Fa river. The authorities at the Bannock agenc have all along been congratulating thonuelve that Ballard and his gang were not at th scat or trouble. MOVEMENTS OF THE TROOPS. From Division Superintendent Vanhouse the schedule was secured of the two speck trains that are bringing the Ninth cavalr from Fort Robinson. One train Is for th men and the other for the horses , and wl comprise a total of fdrty-slx cars There ar 3S3 cavalr } men coming The train that I scheduled to leave Cheyenne , W > o. , at 1 o'clock tonight will arrive at Green River J 11 o'clock Friday morning , at Pocatella at o'clock In the evening , and at Market Lake t midnight. There the troops will leave tl : railroad and go across country to Marysval it the south end ot Jackson Hole , by tl : shortest and best route Via Rcxburg It 120 miles. The cavalry will not bo able I make more than sixty miles a day at best , t that It conditions are most favorable It wl be at least Sunday night or Monday mornln before the troops will be In a position to rei der the besieged settlers any assistance , an during the three days Intervening there time for eerlous trouble to occur. The news from the north grows more wa like and threatening with every message r celved. The latest Information that Is rell ble Is to the effect that within twenty-foi hours 400 La mill Indians from the west liai crossed the Union Pacific railroad In tl vicinity of Market Lake , enroute for Jacksc Hole. The Lemhl reservation Is In the nortl western border of Idaho , just where- the 451 meridian , which Is the northern line of Wyi mlng , crosses the Utah state line. Tt Le in Ills are a mixture ot Shoshone and Bai nock Indiana. The further news has alto ju been received from the village of Market Lil that communication with Jackson Hole Is no entirely shut off. The latest messengers te : out have returned and say that all the moui tain passes are heavily guarded by the I dlans , who will allow no whites to enter SETTLERS WELL ARMED. Additional evidence of the the ough manner In which both the settle and Indians In the Jackson Hole valley a preparing for battle continues to arrive eve day. Ike Hill , the well known travelli man for the Symms Grocery company Salt Like , has arrived in Pocatello , havli come directly here from a trip through tl very portion of the country south of the Y < low stone National park in which the bus whacking campaign la being carried on b tween barricaded settlers and the ambush Indians. Mr. Hill , after careful Inqulr learned that there are seventy-five heads families In the Jackton Hole valley , F i two weeks they have , with rare tonight , be preparing for the condition that now exists. In order to forttall the Indians messengers wcro sent to buy up all the ammunition that could be obtained In that section of the country , and so well have they suc ceeded In laving In a good stock before the passes were watched bv the red men ( hat they now have on hand about 100 rifles , and every settler Is equipped with l.uuO rounds of ammunition. The reason that there has not been more determined action before this on the part of the Indians Is because they cannot pre pare for war so quickly. In the first place they are from 160 to 200 miles from homo and cannot so easily secure the necessary supply of ammunition , first because IX will not be sold to them In large quantities just now , and again , because It Is the season of the > ear when , after the money for their last v ear's hay and skins has been used up , they are poorer than at any other time. The In dians have , however , the best of rifles fur nished by the government , and It has always been the cau e In an Indian uprising that they manage to "dig up" money somewhere to get ammunition FURTHER PROOF OF TROUBLE. If any further proof Is needed that the Bannocks and Shoshones of this reservation are not on the reservation but up In the be sieged country. It was provided here yester day. There was a big circus In town that had been advertised for a month. The In dians are pafslonatcly fond of such a shew and It Is well known that thej would miss \\eck'- - < ration ; , ir travel fifty miles to see the prformancs , and although seldom Is a cir cus here that Is not attended by at least [ $0 Indians , not twenty-five bucks could have been counted In town ycstorday The Indians get no sjmpathy here In the present trouble , unless It be from those who are directly connected with the Indian agency In some way. The universal comment Is , "I hope the redskins will be wiped off the earth , " and It Is an equally general Impression that the settlers of the Jackson Hole country are just the people to undertake the Job and do It up right If they once get started The fear Is now expressed that when the Indians learn that the troops are surely coming they may endeavor to make a sudden strike , and then make all haste for their reservation , so that by the time the regu lars get here they will be peaceably lounging In their accustomed haunts. Rumors have been received that trouble may be looked for today or tomorrow , but as that country Is distant a twenty-four hours' rldo from the swift Indian messenger , no exact facts have jet been secured. viittPii I'llooi-llrniiMl Storj of n MiinMttcru of hl-HI < TM. DENVER , July 23 A special to the News from Pocatello , Idaho , says : Reports from Market Lake say that the Rexburg , Idaho , paper of today reports fifty-nine white people killed by the Bannocks near Jackson's Hole , but there Is no way to confirm the report nnd It Is not believed here. A courier Is ex pected from the vicinity of Jackson's Hole with the latest news There has been no news received at Market Lake for five dajs of an authentic nature. Four hundred Indians are said to have joined the Bannocks on Fall river and arc preparing to make nn onslaught on the whites. It Is probable that Governor McConnell - nell will be called on to aid in suppressing violence. Several parties of tourists are In Pocatello awaiting the result before making their de parture for the Yellowstone park. A special to the Times from Market Lake Idaho , says- The Indians are camped In Hoback canon. No Information has been re ceived and none Is expected before midnight , when Sargents will return If alive. He went there last night. It Is the belief here thai the passes to the Hole are guarded by the Indians and that no one has come out from Jack'nn's Hole for several days. The troopi will reach here tomorrow and leave at one : for the Hole. Many Indians have been going In the direction of the trouble , but the ; will not talk.

When told that Unitec States troops would be thrown In there Mr Smith expressed the hope that It would bi done quickly , for he feared that the con fldence ot the settlers In their own strengtl was not well founded. Mr. Smith savs there come dally report ! of Indians In different parts of the moun tains , and these It Is proposed by the settler : to hunt out and capture.

" DID .NOT DISOIIHV IlKGUIiATIONS Hiimioclc Iiullnnn lliul tlic IllKlit t < Kill the Giime. \ WASHINGTON , July 25. In connectloi with the right of the Bannocks to hunt ol their reservation , the Indian office calls at tendon to the following circular , first Issuei In 16S9 , and sent to agents at Intervals eve since , whenever the occasion seemed to re quire : To United States Indian Agents : Fre quent complaints have been made to till department that Indiana are In the habit o leavlns their reservations for the purpos of hunting : that they bliiughter game I large quantities In violation of the law of the Btnte or territory In which the reside , and In many Instances large nurr bers are killed hlmplv for their hides. In borne caces , Indians , by treaty Htlpuln lions , have the fciiarnnteed right to hur upon specified conditions , outside their o iBtlng reservations. The secretary of th Interior has decided that the privilege c hunting under such treaty provisions lad th right to merely kill such game as may L necessary to biipply the needs of the Ir dlans , nnd that the slaughter of wild an mals In vast numbers for the hides enl and the abandonment of the cartassc without attempting to make une of then Is as much a violation of the treaty as a absolute prohibition on the part of tli United States against the exercise of sue privilege would be This fact should I pressed upon the minds of the Indians wli have suth treaty rights , that they will 1 given to understand the wanton di struction of same will not be permitted And those not having the reserved treat privilege of hunting outside of their ei istlnt , ' reservation should be warned again ! leaving their reservation for hunting , t they are liable to arrest and prosecutlo for violation of the laws of the state < territory In which offenses may be con In view of the settlement of the coui try nnd the consequent disappearance of tl : game the time has long since gone b when tlio Indian * ran live by the chae < They should abandon their Idle and nomad vvajs and endeavor to cultivate habits ( Industry and adopt clvllUed pursuits I secure the means of self-support.

ANDREWS , JESSE II STUOD13 , Of the Nebra ka Congro slonal Delegation. The series of dramatic Incidents attendant upon the Investigation of Senators Allen nnil Thurston and Congressmen Mclklejohn , Strode and Andrews Into the workings ot the Flournoy company , claiming leasehold Inter- i e ts In the Wlnnobago Indian reservation , j an 1 the desires of the Omalms as to the al- 1 lotment of lands , almost reached a climax last night at the Wlnnebago agency. For a time It looked as If Captain Beck would give the word to his Indian police not only to ar rest the unruly element he said was In his I olflce , but even the senators and members of ' the lower house of congress I When the delegation arrived from the Omaha agency last night and went Into ses sion at the Wlnnebago agency , having driven across the prairie some ten miles , that all parties might be heard with a view of shap ing Intelligent legislation on the subjects most desired by the people of Thurston. county , the reception at the agency by Cap tain Beck wns not of the heartiest sort , aa one member ot the delegation remirkeJ. But there Is justification somewhat In this In the fact that the agency buildings are small and hardly adapted to the requirements ot some fifty people , who accompanied the Ne braska delegation. BECK WARMED 'EM UP. After a lunch a meeting was held In Cap tain Beck's quarters From the outset It was plainly evident that the captain wns laboring ; under some excitement. When Senator Thurston had finished his remarks relative to. the object of the visit. Captain Beck , with a. copy of The Dee of Wednesday morning la his hand , began a direct denial of the charges , made therein , as told at the settlers' meet ing of Tuesday night It was his first authentic evidence of the proceedings of that meeting To show the maliciousness , as ho said , ot the charges mads by the evicted settlers fiom the Wlnnebago lands , that he wan favoring a rival company to the Flournoy , ho read a long list of sub-lessees who had. leased through his office. The list contained fifty-five names and represented some IS.OOO1 acres of land. He then justified his severe' actions by reading telegrams from Indian Com missioner Drowning , outlining the policy to betaken taken and stating plans to bo further fol lowed. H was evident bad blood was rapidly being ; engendered. After reviewing the early history - tory of the troubles which resulted In whole sale evictions and arrests , ho said that the Flournoy company had sought to deprive the Indians of their just rights. He characterized as an Infamous He the assertions made that he was discriminating In favor of a numbej- of middlemen. At this juncture John F. Myers , treasuer of the Flournoy company , sought to Interrupt the captain by a state ment. At once the battle was on , and for five minutes It looked as It the whole object of the visit would end light there. WARMER THAN THE WEATHER. During the course of Captain Beck's state , ment the following rather heated colloquy oc curred : Beck I wont to say right here that a largo number of Flournoy leases were mad * fictitiously ; that the persons with whom loisea were made never existed. Mjers The Flournoy company has not a lease of that kind of any description. Beck They have not only one of that kind , but thirty of them. Not only that , but It can be proven that they have paid money to th $ wrong persons Individually. That can ba proven. Myers We have got no leases of that kind and money has been paid to the proper per sons In every Instance. Beck I don't want any more of that , sift I want you to understand Thurston Captain , I would like to make * an Inquiry whether wo are In charge for the purpose of this Investigation In this ofllc * now or not ? Beck Well , Senator Thurston , I haven't .lie slightest desire to be In any nay orient slvo to you gentlemen , and I would think you would know that. But when this man , who ins juct been arrested on a warrant Issued jy the United States district attorney , cornea here to this office and disputes my word I ( 'on't think you can consider I am violating ' any lt.w of hospitality. . t Thurston Captain , we are here for the pur * lose of conducting a most Impartial Inquiry , i Wo desire to render you every possible re. sped us the representative of the United States government. Beck Well , then , I beg your pardon. Will you bo good enough to keep this man fllent ? Thurston But we also have Invited all these men to coino hero and meet us , and without regard to whom these people are on whether they hold any official po.il'lon or whether they are under charge or under nN rest. We recognl/e no distinction between citizens of the United States before us at this hearing , and If we are In charge of thti place during this hearing vo will attend to matters of preservation of order and protect whenever and wherever It Is necessary anj person In attendince. It we are not In clmrgs for that full purpose It will be our pleasure at least mine to retire from the room Captain Beck told Senator Thurston verx plainly that he did not recognize him as having any authority at the agency or on the reservation Ho did not understand that the visiting delegation of senators and con gressman had any rights on the reservation greater than those of other citizens. It waa a voluntary expedition , as far as he knew/ acting without authority. It was not a con gressional committee empowered to act. Ho was In charge of the agency and the reserva tion and was responsible to the secretary of the Interior for his actions. Ho did not pro pose to be Insulted In his own office EO long as he was In charge. Senator Allen explained that the delegation was an unofficial body , eeeklng Information for Its own use , hoping to he enlightened on points that might aid In the enactment of remedial legislation. Senator Thurston did not retire. Captain Beok apologized for the heat he ha'l thownj Myer subsided and the Inquiry went on. INVESTIGATED JUST A LITTLE. The captain gave tbo commission much In * formation that was old , considerable that was new. He dated that thirty years of active service In the army had made him acquainted with the duty ot a soldier , and he was too old now to change from obeying the orders of his superior offlccrt. Then la detail he told the ttory of tlu eviction which number 200 , at least 75 per cent of this number being lessees holding under tha Flournoy company leates. He Mated that the persons evicted had every opportunity to enter upon the peaceable possession of their lands , providing they would maka thele leases through the agent'i ofllce. He con tended that the > Indian was tatting left la the general board of trade style of doing business , and he wanted It itopped. To pro ? tect hie wardi orders were given to the pollca to evict all unlawful holdem ot lands , which vvai being done as rapidly as ponnlble. HI itory wai long , and In telling It he paid hla very best respects to Peeblet , Mven ana others. Thomas Athford , Thomas L Sloan and Edwin Farley followed with statements ( bowing their connection with the
