CHICAGO, Aug. 3.—The police havo lit last obtained a partial confession from Pat Qninlan, the janitor of Holmes' Castle, and hare, they believe, positive evidence that Benjamin F. Pitzel was murdered in this city by Holmes and the corpse sent to Phila- ilplphia. The confession was wormed out of the Qniulans by means of a tip given the local officers by Detective Geyer of Philadelphia, who arrived in this city during tho day. The exact nature of the story told by the Quiulans the po* lice will not reveal, and, in fact, Chief Badeuoch and Inspector Fitzpatrick have both denied that Quinlan or his wife made any confession at all. Not' withstanding the denial of the police however, it is positively known that Quiulan Aiiuie nnd Signed a Confessloni Later it was learned that the confession covered all the details of the murder of Pitzsl, with the exception of the Actual place iu which the crime was committed. Tho confession was obtained from the Quinlaus only after the hardest kind of work, and at the price of a promise of immunity from punishment for all part the Quinlaus may have borne iu the murder of Pitzel or other crimes committed by Holmes. Mrs. Pat Qninlan knew of the disap' pearauce of Mrs. Julia L. Conner in Holmes' Castle and saw the body of the woman after she was dead. She further knew and has admitted that Pearl Conner. Disappeared In the Castle after her return from the Quinlan farm at Lake Michigan. Chief Badenoch took Mrs. Quiulan and her husband to the Castle, with Inspector Fitzpatrick and Detectives Fitzpatrick and Morton. The object of this trip was more for tho purpojgejjnetting Quinlan, and ; bis^vife niee't than any other. They were ""closeted together alone for an hour in the room in which the Jtilia Conner carpet lies and the chair belonging to the murdered woman stands. What took place between them no ono knows, but Chief Badencch and the detectives are nearer the solution of tho Holmes mystery than they ever were before. They now have positive proof that Mrs. Conner and her daughter Julia, or Cora Quinlau, were murdered in the building while the mother was in his employ. Further, Quinlan and his wife Havo Proved to the Police that Mrs. Connor was so well aware of the schemes which Holmes was operating that it became necessary for Holmes to put the woman out of the way. Pat Quinlan and his wife have admitted partially that a business in receiving and disposing of dead bodies stolen from country graveyards was carried on: in the Castle under the direction of Holmes. The graveyards of the western portion of Michigan—Grand Haven, Holland, St. Joseph and other places — were despoiled of bodies. These were brought to the Castle and chemically treated and then .disposed of to medical colleges. The coffins were remade by Holmes, Quinlan and Piet- zel and disposed of to undertakers at a fair protit. ' SAYS PIETZEL SUICIDED. BflfttTOK THE OOPPEft.

He was going alon;: the south side of Monroe street toward Rutgers when Harry Applebaum woke up and went to find his mother, who was trying to cool off on the Stoop of the house. Harry was only half awake, and it is surmised crawled to an open fourth story window, thinking it was a door. Just as he toppled head first over the sill Policeman Caulfleld came along on patrol. Kearly all the grown folks on the block were outdoors, and many of them saw the white gowned boy falling. There was n shriek from many mothers, and then Harry's body struck the sheet iron cornieo just over the butcher's store on tho ground floor a glancing blow and fell plump on the robust policeman's right shoulder, knocking off his helmet and bringing him half way to the ground. The policeman was surprised, but- no* much hurt, though his shoulder is u littl.: stiff. He says ho thought at first that som« one had let a hard corn husk pillow fall from an upper window. He grabbed at the object, found out what it was ant! picked it up. Ho walked to the door and asked whose baby had fallen out of a window. Mrs. Applebaum looked at tho boy, and crying, "It's my Harry," fainted. The policeman sent a man to summon au ambulance, urged another man to run for a doctor and then carried the child up to his mother's rooms. Tho child's left arm and right leg wero broken.—Kow York Sun. HIS BRAVE DEED.

If it turns out to be magnetic iron and there is much of it, tho discovery will prove a very valuable find, as the ore is worth $7 or $8 a ton.

It is said that Thomas Hardy has' modi- fled considerably his story of "Hearts Insurgents" to suit tho'conventionality ot the average magazine reader, and that when the story comes out in book form it will appear as the author originally wrote it. This is : not.the first time that Mr. Hardy has been thus obliged to present two versions of a story to tho world. His admirers should wait for tho original.— Boston Journal. The mining town of Oipelfon was alive with excitement. Mr. Hilton, the ownct of half the min.-.- ;r.:d mow than hnli tly: , \v;is to ;'ive a ball in honor of his f-on ( a.•!'.-, .w< ,:, ,-ilr-f birthday. n:i>l n'.'n to ceVu\U<-- the r.'iii-.i ••( li* only^h- to from the English school to which she had been sent when but 10 years old. Carl Hilton was an only son, and because of his parent's indulgence had be- couie selfish and tyrannical. His father Idolized him and was blind to his faults. As Mr. Hilton had been out of health foi more than a year Carl had attended to most of tho business, and he had so tyrannized over the miners that they one and all hated him, but they loved and respected his father, and for his sake bore in silence the abuse of tho son. It fell to the lot of Fred Chase, one oi the foremen lu the mine, to escort the beautiful Nina to dinner, and so deeply did they become engaged iu conversation that it w;n some minutes before Fred noticed that Carl sat directly opposite and was watching them closely. "I intend to visit the mines tomorrow," said the girl in tones loud enough to be heard by her brother. "I want to descend the now shaft.'' "I shall bo very happy to conduct you through the mines, but you must not descend the now shaft, for it is not r:\fe. I have warned your brother that the roof of tho mine is in danger of falling, bub he only laughs at me, and I fear somo tcrri- blo'accident will bo tho result of his neglect." 1 ' You a TO n fool, Fred Chase! Tho shaft is safe enough. I shall take Nina there myself tomorrow," said Carl angrily. "I spoke the truth. Tho shaft is not safe, and unless more timber is put in to support tho roof you will soon have proof that I am right." "Pooh! You are » coward. I will show you tomorrow how little faith I pub iu your words." Tho following morning Carl started for the now shaft alone. Nina refused to accompany him arid begged him to delay his until the roof was made secure.

They had barely reached it when they heard a loud report behind, a cry of fear mingled \riththonoiseof falling rocks; then all was still. Only an instant did thoy stand motionless.. Then Fred grasped the rope and gave tho signal to bo hoisted to the top. Soon tho entrance to tho shaft was a scone of wild excitement. The father offered largo rewards to any who would attempt the rescue of his son, but not a man •would volunteer. Fred had stood silent, with his eyes bent on the ground, .until tho old man, in sheer despair, cried oiit: -.••-.,. "I will give half of my fortune—and ife is a large one—to the men who will help mo reach my boy!" Fred came forward with a look of re- solvo on his face. "Mr. Hilton, not for yotir entire fortune would I enter that mine to save your son, but for humanity's sake I will do my best to rescue him." A cheer from tho miners greeted these bravo words. "With a wave of his hand Fred commanded silence, and running his eyo over tho crowd said slowly: "I must have throe men to-help mo. Who will go?" Charles Gray, Fred's chosen companion, stepped to his side. Two more men quickly followed, and they were lowered into tho shaft. Tho first act of tho workers was to place extra beams,-which were lowered down the shaft tor the purpose, as near as they could to the fallen roof, to bear any strain that might bo resting on those already there. At the end. of thrco hours of cautious digging they came to tho car which Fred and his companion had staid behind .to fill, and thoy stopped for a few moments' rest. In half an hour they had reachedE an opening caused by two largo rooks which had fallen together in such a manner as to leave a space between them. Iu that space lay Carl, with ono arm doubled under him and ono foot pinioned by a stone. The poor fellow was terribly bruised and out, but conscious, 1 ...-.-.
