TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 • 1937 HOGS UNCHANGED TO DIME LOWER TOP OF $10,35 EQUALS FRIDAY Nothing Is Done in Other Branches of Livestock Trade at Chicago. CHICAGO, ijPi—Although hog receipts were smaller than expected, buyers ivcre indifferent in Saturdays short session and prices were unchanged to 10 cents lower. Top of $10.35 matched Friday's closing peak. Nothing \vas done in other branches of the trade. Sheep and cattle receipts expanded this week, accounting to some extent for the declines that took place in most classes offered Hog Markets in these markets, but ho: was around 25.000 head below the previous week though slightly larger than Ihe corresponding week a year ago. Decline for Week. Despite this contraction in hog receipts, the market declined 25 in -JO"cents during the week, partly in sympathy with falling wholesale pork Quotations. Choice jjnd prime steers selling at S13.50 upward advanced 25 to 40 cents during the week, to a new 12 months' peak of $14.40. Other grades of catlle, however, predominated in the market, and these lost 25 to 50 cents, closing dull. Though stockers and feeders were scarce finishers did not support this market late. Fat Lambs Drop. Fat lambs more than lost early week gains and closed 10 to 35 cents net lower. Sheep, however, advanced around 50 cents. The early lamb top of Sll, highest since July, gave way to a closing peak of S10.60. A disturbing influence in most branches of the livestock trade" was the backtracking of wholesale fresh meat quotations. Fresh pork loins, which led this reaction from recent high levels, closed at a 16 to 18 ] -j cents a pound range compared with IT 1 ? to 2'' week ago.

Steel pointing the way, selective advances of fractions to 2 points were spread over Saturday's stock market. A wide assortment of new post- depression highs were registered in the active two hour proceedings that kept the ticker tape racing at frequent intervals. Selling to lighten commitments for the week-end was in evidence, however, and many issues were unable to make progress. Transfers were around 1,500,000 shares.

They gathered in the study which had witnessed such grim scenes, and waited lor the arrival of Hutchins from Grinfold with James. The twins were being made much of in the servants' hall, when Hutchins arrived, with his prisoner. He was short in Ms manner, and vas not too pleased at the instruction he had received from Selden that handcuffs were not necessary, and that Hutchins might bring James alone. He was further ruffled when Selden shook James' hand and bade him be seated a the table, round which they had drawn up their chairs. There was an atmosphere of eager expectancy, and all eyes were fastened I The butler lifted his gaze from the table and stared at Selden, who laughed softly. "No James — not the alibi that accounts for one's absence from the scene of the crime, but the fact that you had been with Sir Henry for a long period of years, covering the time when this mysterious fortune appears on the scene, which I think any man of average intelligence would know must have some connection with the crime.

"Nn, sir.'' the butler answered sullenly with a wooden face. "It would be much better and simpler," the detective said coax| ingly. "I have been arrested for murder,'' James said, "and you made no effort to release me. K you know anything, you had better speak" There was -an unconscious dignity about the 'man, and they felt that nothing could move him. Hutchins moved restlessly. "I'd better take him back to Grinfold. I always felt that this was a mistake. "Wait, Hutchins.

"The second point is one ihat I know has rankled in your minds, all of you. If I knew anything, why did I not confide the information to you, and save you grave anxiety and a good deal of puzzlement? There again I hope to reassure you, but I can tell you right away that the absolute proof only came into my hands yesterday.'' The little party were very silent now. and their eyes were fixed intently on the young detective. "I am afraid I shall have to tell this in my own way, but you will not find it boring, I can assure you. "When I arrived here, brought ruinmarily from Scotland Yard by Colonel Graham, I had an absolutely open mind, and kn_w nothing beyond what he imparted to me on the journey. "You all know the actual facts, so that there is no need to go through them again. I carefully recorded everything in my diary, which I have here. Here are my conclusions, the end of the first day's investigations. "The murder had been very carefully planned some time before. There was no qeustion of burglary or of a sudden attack by a stranger, for the murderer not only knew the house perfectly well, but all about the crypt, and what perhaps was the strangest thing of all, the fact that in that particular coffin there was only an urn, and no body. That was vitally important. It ruled out any" chance visitor to the Abbey, and in a small village like Evendell strangers in the neighborhood would be soon noticed, far quicker than in London or a large town. There was one stranger, however, who had been noticed. I mean Jack Reid, and I made a note of that fact. But Reid had unconsciously ruled himself out." He smiled across at Jack as lie spoke. "He had liimeslf suggested that the bloodhounds should be employed. Now what murderer in his senses would take all these very elaborate precautions to conceal the body, and then immediately suggest the means of discovery? "the Colone! I could not rule out, but his immediate use of bloodhounds, his high-handed attitude, and his coming straight to Scotland Yard caused me to have doubts. Later, when I learnt of his terror of attack, which had existed for a long time, remember, I came to the conclusion, logically enough, that both he and Sir Henry were afraid of someone, and that the fear must lie in the past. If that were so, then two facts emerged— that there was some discreditable out. Sir Henry had given written authority for him to do so to the family lawyer. Colonel Graham would, not barricade his house against James, who had free access at all times, and Sir Henry would hardly have kept a man of whom he was in deadly peril as his confidant and friend. Nor would James be inclined to risk his neck when he knew that Sir Henry was leaving everything to him: in fact made out the will himself." James gave a gasp of astonishment, and he licked his dry lips. Selden continued: "Yes, Mr. Livingstone told me that the same writing had always been used in all the letters he had received, and he had concluded that Sir Henry had paralysis or some impediment which prevented him from writing, and which he wished unknown, :i But James played an important part in this business. On the night of the murder he was rung up by Sir Henry on his private wire, and came to see him in this very room. What took place I don't know, but James placed the candelstick in Lady Severinge's bedroom for some reason." He cast an inquiring look nt the butler, who remained silent. "All right, then; perhaps he will tell us later. But James stood to benefit by the will, and in fact inherited an enormous sum, and yet stayed on here as butler, and was trying to do everything he could for Lady Severinge and the children. And don't forget, James was nol in any fear of personal violence. "There could be only one explanation to my mind, however bizarre that appeared— that the money did not belong either to Sir Henry or James." The silence in the room was oppressive — the people round the table hardly dared to breathe. Sylvia was sitting close to Jack Reid, and he had grasped her hand in his, for she was trembling as much with expectation as with the narrative that brought the past up so vividly. "Such, then, was my position," Selden went on without emotion, after calmly lighting his pipe from the fire with a spill. "The investigations must lie in the past. Someone in the house must have been an accessory, if not the murderer, for how else could he have access to the place at night?" "There might have been a secret way in," Hutchins said. Selden laughed. "There was, but the murderer never came that way. I took care of that. Now just think — Sir Henry went down thai passage, unarmed and in pajamas, to his death: he. a man who feared attack — would he go like this to keep an appointment or from idle curiosity? It came to me, and I am right — that he . had been in the habit of going down to the chapel. Mrs. Thornton let that out to us, Hutchins. Then the murderer had probably been waiting' his chance for night ,after night until it came." "But why that night particularly?" Reid asked, with a meaning that only Selden comprehended. "Ah. there we are touching on another and deeper matter, but I will come to that all in good time."

I don't, mean actual names, but someone who had a very deep grudge against both men. That is clear enough?" "Very clear," Hutchins said, casting an .eye at James. "No. Hutchins," Selden said, answering the look rather than the words,- "that is where you were wrong. Let's take our friend James. At first sight he satisfied the conditions of knowing the house and its secrets, and also the past—don't forget, that But there was one obstacle that made me dismiss James very clearly from my suspects-; James had a complete-alibi."
