The marvelous nerve that bas characterised his every action sinoe his arrest and has mad e him the wonder of all' who hare coma in contact with him, John Benigald Burobell faced judge and jury i n the Oxford conrt of assizes here this morning and pleaded not guilty to the indictment charging him with the murder of Frederick O. Ben veil in a dismal swamp hear, the Village of Princeton on February 17 last DIs , bearing was in keep ing with . the ; ,oironmstanoes surrounding the crime, which almost outrival the wildest work of notion, and which was planned and executed with a consummate coolness that is personifled In the man.. A brief review of the oase is as follows: On February 21 last, the body of a young man was found in the Princeton swamp, with two bullet - wounds in the head. He had been shot down from behind. The body was dressed in English tweed, and the under garments wore of the flueet te.ttnrs. indicating that the dead, man had been in good oirotun - stanoes. At first there seemed to be no olue to his identity. The plans of the murderer were so closely laid and so skillfully executed, that but for one slight circumstance, identification would have been nearly impossible. Ihe murderer had partly undressed his vioti'm and neatly cut from his clothing the name of the wearer, and then, after rifling the pookets of their contents, he quietly departed, thinking he had destroyed everything that could be used to Identify the friendless and unknown young man whom he had entioed to this lonely spot and shot down in cold blood. Jnt when the viotim fell, his cigar e flew from his breast pocket, and lodged in the snow half under a small dead sappling, whose branches were Spread over the gronnd. The murderer overlooked this silent witness and it was found by the deteotives. On it was the name "F. O. Benwell." Following up this olew,the officers arrested Barohall at Niagara Falls, Ont., where he had his preliminary examination, and was formally indicted for murder in the first degree. The work of the deteotives developed the following chain of evidence, which was used against Burohall at the trial t On, the Sth day of February last, Bon - ginalcTXSurohall and his wife, accompanied by Douglass R. Felly and Frederick O. Benwell, sailed from Liverpool for Yew York. During the voyage Burohall and his wife told the young man in glowing terms of their stock farm in Canada, lighted by electricity, where the two young men were to bo taken as "student farmers,'' and taught to till the soil. Benwell had 170 pounds with him, and Pally had about the; same. They were to give moat of this to Barohall for tho tuition. The party of tour arrived at New York and remained two days, and then went to Buffalo. Early on the morning of Feburary 17th, the party went to Niagara Falls, Ont, Barohall and Benwell going early and Mrs. Burohall and Pclly by a latter train. When the two latter arrived there Barohall and Benwell could not be found, but late that night Burohall appeared alone. 'Ha explained that Benwell went to the agents stook to look at a farm and expected to be gone several days, Polly became suspicious and the agents stock not materialising, more so. When Benwell'a body was found and Burohall was arrested. Pelly and Mrs. Burohall were also taken into custody, Pelly told his story and it did much to unravel the mystery. He was discharged as was Mrs. Barohall subsequently, no proof being obtainable against thorn. omoiaXi AssassrjtATsn. Qnasobw, Ky., Sspt 22. Frank Weir, a government storekeeper and guager, was assassinated Saturday afternoon, and suspicion points to Win. Button, of the distillery firm of . Parker & Button as the murderer. With Revenue Collector J. E. Biggerataff, Wier went on. to the Parker & Button distillery to levy on a drove of hogs belonging to Button, on account of irregularities in the payment of internal reve - nne taxes. Biggerstaif, before seizing the hogs, went to a fanners near by to secure, a lot in which to pen the animals. When he returned he found the horse and buggy about one - half mile tip the road from where he had left Wier. Biggerataff hurried on to the place where he left Weir alive, and was horrified to find bis body by the roadside. Wier had been shot dead, out in the body and badly beaten and bruised otherwise. Near the corpse two sheila like those used in a Spenoer rifle were found. Bill Button, the only man in the neighbor hood known to own a gun of this, kind. has been arrested. A lynching is not improbable.

Prof. Phillips Mn there a Ills Sap - ply of It la Fennwylvania. PrrrsBCBO, Pa., Sept 22. Professor Frauds O. Phillips, of the Western University, Alleghny, has been experimenting on natural gas for about a year. As a partial result of his experiments he says "analysis of samples of. gas from all parts of the country show that it originates at the same place, or under similar conditions. There is no doubt that it is a stored produot and gas strack in the state of Indiana and at Fredonia, N. Y., comes from the great lime stone strata.. There is. every probability, therefore, that underneath the reservoir now tapped in Pennsylvania lies another big snpply whioh is certainly aooessible. Considering all things it is rery likely that there is plenty of gas in the various strataa whioh has ss yet been unexplored by the drill." TKHHIBL.K AOCIIIEIIT Ne Mtrlkera Wanted. PoDQHxajtFsrB, N.

THK PLYMOUTH CHURCH. i'ni or Al - talle Telia II la Peopi Wfctt Thlr New Kdlltee Slionltl Be. At tho morning services in Plymouth Congregational church, yesterday, the pastor, Rev. J. S. Ainslie told hia people what their new church should be. He dealared that the unmistakable signs of tbe times call for a better applied Christianity. "We do' not need a new gospel; not a new religion, but religion better applied to the needs ot the age; not new doctrines, but better methods." Theohnroh edifloo should not conform to the old ideals of eoolesiesUoal architecture, but should be more home - like; and should be built primarily for nse, and not for display.' Tu addition to the auditorium and lecture room, dining room and kitchen, there should be a reading room and young men's room, an entertain ment hall, and other roms for evening classes. The work of the church should not be confined chiefly to Sunday, but should be carried on, in some depart ment, all through the week, and should be as varied as human needs. There might be a sewing school for girls,, a boy's club, conversation and other training oIohscs, that would pnt the spirit of the Goftpel into the common work of every - day life. He believes that the social aspects of Christianity, whioh have been bnt slightly dwelt upon in the past, must come to the front for treatment. Besides proclaiming our duties to God, wo must sharply define and enforce our duties to our fellowmen. The Golden Rulo must be translated into business oouduot. "The aim of Christianity Is not simply to ensure us an entrance into heaven when we die. bnt seeks the transformation of society and its reorgan ization upon Christian ideals." Then there must be more teaching by the minister and less preaching, and the unused talent pf the church must be de veloped and brought into use, if the oh u roll is to have its full influence upon the life of to day.

Kittle Karl Low Sic. With ProUa - blr Vmtal la - Jarl. - - - Terrible A sad case was reported this morning, of a terrible accident which befell Earl, the three - year - old son of Samuel Lowe and wife, of Boone street, in "jbras - ka." With that insatiable curiosity of young innocents, the child investigated tbe contents of the kitchen stove while his mother was absent from the room for a brief time, and in his dangerous play heaped red - hot coals on the stove hearth. Just how the accident happened will probably never be known, but while thus engaged in playing with the coals, the little one's olothing took flre. His screams brought the mother quickly to the room. She found heiwdarling wrapt in flames. With presence of mind rarely seen in times of emergency, she procured a shawl which she used to smother the fire, but not until tbe cruel element had burned through the. child's under garments to the flesh. Tho young victim's entire body was more or loss burned. Dr. G. B. Stem en, of Nebraska," was summoned and administered relief by outside applications. Burns of so serious a nature have proved fatal in oases of adults, and it is doubtful that cue of tender years can survive suoh fearful injuries. THK IIRATHII, DAUINU F.WOAPK.

F., an important matter will be.diBcussed. It relates to the lodge's now building at the corner of Calhoun and Way ne street, now in course of construction. The large oarved sand - stone pillar cap which supports the tower portion of tfie . new building cracked recently from the heavy weight brought to bear upon1 it. This accident was occasioned by a defect In laying the stone in tho mortar bed, the arohiteot says. Some members of the lodge will vote not to accept the contract unless the present defective etone is removed and replaced. They claim that tbe tower will settle as it stands in its present condition. The removal of this Btqne would make it neooBsary to tear doWn the tower portion, not only delay the completion of the building but be an expensive - - task for the oontraotor. Al.
