Holmes arrived hero last week, but has been sick in a hospital. She is carefully guarded by an officer and ia not permitted to see anybody. Holmes became worried because she did not call on him, as he wanted to have a talk with her so as to GETS A DEATH BLOW IH A PSIZE-FIGHT Louis Schmidt Killed by Frank Klein In a Mill at Milwaukee. Milwaukee, July 22. Special.

Louis Schmidt an aspiring local pugilist, received a blow in a fight with Frank Klein, another aspiring amateur, early this morning, from which he died ttiis afternoon. Klein was placed under arrest on the charge of manslaughter and ail of the seconds, time-keepers, and others who had anything to do with tha fight will be arrested as soon as found. Young Schmidt, who was only 19 years of age, was an athletic young fellow who had achieved something of a reputation as a boxer among the North Side admirers of tne manly art. His most aspiring rival was Frank Klein. For several months the two have been bragging of their superior powers and a few days ago a finish fight between them was arranged to settle the question of the superiority.

The fight was for $10 a side and the gate receipts, and came off last night. There were about 100 friends of the fighters and several sports present. Henry Baker, the heavyweight fighter, acted as second for Klein, while August Leidgea acted in a similar capacity for the dead man. W. Salisbury was the referee and Mike Schelebein was the timekeeper.

In the fifth round Klein hit Schmidt a heavy blow on the breast, which knocked him down. He fell backward, his head striking tha floor. When his second ran to him he was unconscious. At 2 o'clock this morning Dr. H.

W. Earles was called to the road house where the fight occurred. He found young Schmidt in an unconscious condition and suffering to all appearances from concussion of the brain. Dr. Earles, seeing at onca the serious condition of tha young man, rreparing to Annihilate the White Settlers.

July 13 thirty men left Jackson's Hole to arrest all Indians breaking the game laws of Wyommg. In Hoback Canon they surprised a camp of seventeen Indians and took them all prisoners and started with them for Jackson's Hole. In the canon tney tried to escape, and all the Indians were killed except had him conveyed to Trinity Hospital, where he remained in an unconscious condition until his death, which occurred this afternoon. As soon as the result of the blow was known Frank Klein, who ia a ehoecut-ter, living at No. 1077 Eleventh street, was placed under arrest, and tonight Schelebein, the timekeeper, was arrested.

Henry Baker and the others who are wanted could not be found. Klein, who is at the Central Station, is distracted over the affair. The police are finding it a difficult task to find out or to locate those who were in attendance at the fight, but they will all be placed under arrest and held as witnesses. Schmidt was the only son of Louis Schmidt, a grocer living at No. 921 Third street.

brought, into the one papoose, who was Hole. That Mrs. I. L. Conner is dead is certain.

That Roiines either killed her or is directly teaponsible for her death is equally sure. Hoiines yesterday admitted the woruaa was no mere, but, as usual, ho tried to shift the blame on eomo one else. Almost equally certain is it that Mrs. Con-BPr's daughter Gertrude is not in the land of the living. Holmes says he does not know what has become of her, and that in itself is tr.miie iliy aa admission bhe has been made away with.

The fact that Holmes admits Mrs. Conner's death is not known to the authorities in Philadelphia. He made the admission yesterday afternoon to a man who, with Distriet-Attor-cey Graham, was closeted with him in the liojamensing Penitentiary. This is his statement "Mrs. Conner sot into trouble and a Chicago doctor performed an operation.

The job was such a bungling one the woman died." This is the first light shed on the case since ilrs. Conner diappeaied from public view in 1813. When her husband learned of her entanglement with Holmes he secured a divorce, but, although parted from the woman, he assisted her parents in Davenport, in endeavoring to secure some trace of her. That tney were heart-brcken over her disappearance was shown yesterday when in searching the house at Sixty -third street a letter from ttiem to Holmes was found. It was evidently in auswer to a letter from Holmes to them thas being presumably a scheme on his part to throw them off the trail asking tiere she had gone.

William Buford shot and instantly killed Gordon Ewing in the alley in the rear of the Southern Hotel just after 8 o'clock last evening.

Both men were employed as waiters at the hotel and are colored. The men had quarreled in the kitchen and coming to blows Buford chased Ewing from the room. The basis of their quarrel was strife between them as to who should Eerve a guest of the hcuse known to be liberal with his tips. The two men ran dowa the stairs leading to the alley in the rear of the hotel. Ewing tried to escape through a doorway into a restaurant across the alley.

He was unable to open the door and Buford, running up, drew a revolver and shot him in the head, the bullet entering on the left side and passing clear through. Ewing sank to the pavement and died instantly. Buford, throwing off the black coat and white apron worn by waiters, raa down tho alley and disappeared. Policemen were soon on the spot and Ew-ing's body was taken to No. 11 Adams street.

A message was sent to all stations giving a description of Buford. Ewing was 22 years old and unmarried. "His address is not known. Buford is also unmarried, 28 years old, and lives at Spring street and Wentworth avenue. CHICAGO'S ALL TOO BRIKF INTERVAL OF RELIEF.

Holmes was closely questioned on the sub Williams, one of holmes' victims. ject of Mrs. Conner's death by his counsel, Mr. Shoemaker, and answered his interroga tions in a way which showed he thoroughly understood who was referred to. The detec- the oldest settler in Jackson's Hole, has gone over into Idaho, and says every settler ia Jackson's Hole will be butchered.

There were 300 Bannock warriors on Ho. back River when Carnes was there, and ha says all 6quaws have been sent away and that the bucks are daily joining the main band. Jackson's Hole settlers are now intrenched and awaiting the attack. Unless the cavalry gets there quick every Mtler between Jackson's Hole and this railway station is in danger of massacre. It is the climax of the jealousy which has existed for some time over the huatiag privileges, the Indians being goaded at li-st to a violent outbreak.

The first indication of trouble at Jackson Hole came July 19, when Gov. Richards of Wyoming received a telegram from the Justice of the Peace and constable of Mary, vilie, in the Jackson Hole District, to this effect: Nine Indians arrested: one killed: other es- caped. Many Indian's reported here threaten u.2 lives and property. Settlers are moving miles away. Want protection immediately.

Action oa your part absolutely necessary. The Governor forwarded the message to the Secretary of the Interior, asking him to take action. The government was disposed to make light of the matter and sent out the official statement that the rea trouble in Wyommg was that the Indians are better hunters than the whites ia the region and that the jealousy of them was the mt in cauee of the trouble. The report of the alleged uprising of the Bannock In. dians was received at the War Department, but no action was taken further than to notify the department commander to have troops at Fort Washakie in readiness to protect tha people and property in case they were wanted.

The reports since then have been desultory and in some cases conflicting, tha place being so remote from direct communication that it was impossible to verify either side before. The burden of proof, however, has been on tho side of violence, which is now confirmed by this latest report Cheyenne, July 22. Gov. Richards received advices today that some forty young Bannock bucks are in the vicinity of Ham's Fork, a station on the Oregon Short Line in Uintah County. The Indians have a tlva -feu was present at the interview, how ever, Holmes confuses Mrs.

After the men who are exploring the base from the fact that it has two ponds adjoining each other and separated by a bank of earth. These two ponds are two blocks distant from the garbage dump. The wind from the northeast yesterday blew clouds of "refuse "'from the dump into these ponds, and a person who stood south of the pile of garbage for five minutes found himself completely covered with fine white dust.

Sanitary Policeman No. -G at the garbage dump informed a reporter for The Tribune that in order to render the smell from the garbage as inoffensive as possible to the residents of the neighborhood the worst garbage is dumped away from the street side3 of the lot and taken to the other side, near the ponds. The extreme southern end of the dump had therefore the worst, if any distinction in garbage can be made, of the matter left. A reporter who visited the office of Wohl-leber Co. yesterday afternoon was informed that the ice is taken from the pond named.

In the yard were several wagons being loaded with ice, and two children were taking pieces away in carts.

The two officers went through the cellar with rods, potting the ground to find soft places where it might seem probable the earth had been disturoed recently. In so doing they stirred up some ashes near the northeast corner of the build-ng not far from where two of the workmen had been digging all day and brought to light -the blood-stained linen.

There was some doubt whether the stains were caused by the red paint or blood. LOSES HIS LIFE IN A BICYCLE FALL. gauge the woman's feelings and intentions. Holmes was primed for a big talk. He had been supplied with the daily newspapers and knew everything that had recently been charged against him.

In the District-Attorney's room Were Mr. Graham, Mrs. Holmes, or Howard, W. A. Shoemaker, counsel for Holmes, and Detective Gentry.

When Holmes stepped into the room he walked over to his wife to greet her, but she indignantly drew back from him and repulsed his advances. It was evident the woman has enough of Holmes and that she intended to cut loose from him. The couple did not exchange a word during the three hours they were in the District-Attorney's office except when the woman was compelled to answer questions through Mr. Graham. When the interview was finished Holmes walked up to his wife and said I hope they are taking good care of you.

Do you want The woman made no reply and turned aside. She was unnerved by the interview, however, and was taken off by oneof the police matrons to her hiding place. Holmes said afterwards: I am not worried about myself or what may happen to me, but I do care about that woman. But she is fixed all right, for I have given her Turning the discussion to the recent developments in Chicago Holmes said: "I owned the building at Sixty-third street, but I don't think I should be held accountable for everything that transpired there, because otner people occupied a good part of it." Holmes had no desire to talk after the scene with his wife, as he was worried over her action and now believes she has deserted him. Until the time he was left alone in his cell he wanted to discuss his wife and her conduct only.

The object of the interview with District Attorney Graham was to talk over the Toronto end of the story as regards the Pitzel children. Mrs. Holmes produced the famous diary which bhe had kept at the instigation of the prisoner, detailing his movements during October and November, 189-1. It proved a boomerang this time. The entries accounted for Holmes being in Toronto for all the time except two days.

During that period Mrs. Holmes said she did not see her husband, and she added "He told me he had been away fishing." It is believed by the authorities that during those two days Holmes made away with the two Pitzel girls. Mrs. Holmes will remain in the city for a few days and help District-Attorney Graham to ferret out the Toronto case against her husband. She is denied to all callers, as it is feared by the authorities sho may be spirited away.

George Lacy Strana-han, son of Dr. Charles W. Stranahan, a prominent surgeon, died tonight in consequence of a fall received in a bicycle accident.

He received his fatal blow in a sacrifice fall to avoid a collision with a young woman cycler. says he will use the $50 which he expects to get for informing on his friend in taking out naturalization papers and joining the army. The two men became acquainted in London. Penrice fled to England after deserting from the army.

His stories of America filled Winterburn with a desire to cross the ocean. They became fast friends and he approached Wintei burn on the subject of a trip to America and the latter consented. They did not have enough money, however, although the Londoner was not entirely without means. Ha held what was then considered a fair position and after a few weeks, together with the limited amount of money Penrice had earned by odd jobs, they accumulated enough money to purchase tickets to this country. Accordingly they set sail from London May 14 last and arrived at Quebec about three weeks ago.

They made their way to this city, arriving a few days after their landing. Trey were entirely without money, but Penrice secured enough by begging on the street to obtain a bed for them in a lodging-house. The following morning both men went out in search of work, but disappointment after disappointment confronted them. By begging and doing odd jobs they obtained enough money to secure shelter in the Liberty Bell Lodging-House on Desplaines street, where they stopped most of the time. Winter-burn became homesick.

They thought of enlisting in the army, but Penrice was a deserter and Winterburn an alien. The latter wanted to take out his first papers preparatory to naturalization, but had not the means to do so. His object was to secure admission to the army. Then he grew despondent. If he had tha money to obtain his papers he felt sure he could become a soldier.

Then he accusod Penrice of misrepresenting America and expressed his dissatisfaction with having left his work in England. feurice's gratitude was not diminished. He had often told his companion that he was a deserter, even before they left London. The government would pay a reward for his capture, and by accepting the prison for himself he could place his friend out of immediate want. In doing so he would also have a living, and he resolved to let his friend surrender him to secure the price paid for deserters.

Policeman Driscoll of the Central Detail was traveling his post last night when the two men accosted him. Winterburn informed the policeman that Penrice was a deserter from the army and asked him to arrest him. Penrice admitted the charge to Officer Driscoll, who took him to the station. He told Sergt. Brett that Winterburn was the informant who caused his arrest.

He said nothing, however, of the prearranged agreement, but admitted bis guilt. He was then locked up. Later Vinterburn went to the Central Station to talk to Sergt Brett about the reward. He told the whole story to th) Sergeant, and said it was, prearranged by them for him to give Penrice over to the authorities in order to secure the reward. According to their story Penrice deserted from the cavalry at Jefferson Barracks near St.

Louis about sixteen months ago. He had enlisted only a few days before desertion and had not yet been assigned to a regiment. He first came to Chicago and later fled to England, where he met Winterburn. Last night the St. Louis authorities were notified of Pen-rice's arrest.

If the women who mount bicycles and parade the streets of our city knew the comments they provoke they would certainly abandon the indelicate and unwomanly exercise.

It is simply impossible for women who persist in this immodest exhibition of themselves to escape insult. Let us stop the abomination before it goes any further. I am satisfied that a majority of women who have made this misstep did not intend to be immodest and that their purposes are pure, but the impression they make is shocking to the sensibilities of all men who have a true reverence for womanhood and a true conception of womanly modesty. Women have begun to ride horseback after the fashion of men and have announced their purpose to persist in it until the whole sisterhood has followed their example. What next?

A sort of slide which was used in winter for hauling the Ice from the pond led to the top story of the house. These slides were on all three ice houses owned by the different companies. A man in the office volunteered the information that the different companies sometimes rent their ponds for short periods in the winter to other ice companies.

At the storehouse of the Lincoln Ice company, in Wrightwood avenue near South-port, when inquiry was made as to whether ice was obtained from the pond, the answer was: "Well yes, some of it." The information was given that a portion of their ice comes from Lake Waubesa, Wis. On the company's wagons is printed in one of the corners of the sides: "Lake Waubesa." The Twin Lakes Ice company, No. 130C North Ashland avenue, is farther removed from the dump than the others. It has two ponds, separated from each other by a bank or earth. When a workman was tasked where the ice was obtained he pointed to the two ponds.

At one end of one of them apples in various stages of ripeness, from green to decayed, were floating in the water. The garbage dump was a busy place yesterday. At 4:0 in the afternoon there were twenty-six wagons leaving garbage, while fifty men, women, and children were raking over the refuse and picking up articles of food and clothing. Three small children had as many baskets of half-decayed fruit they had gathered and were taking home. The foreman said it was impossible to keep them away from the place.
