Wednesday by the men digging in the
cellar of the Holmes building, but it
was one which m.y go much farther

The signature is one of the many aliases
used by Holme and ot e of the com

well-kuown haudwntiug and is ad-
jr eased to au occupant of the building,
to whom the dectectives who took pos
jession of the letter before ihe reporters
sould get bold of it refused to state.
It is believed, however, that the letter
is to C. E. Davis, the jeweller who

where he now is. It then goes on in a
jocular manner to discuss the fact ol

Special inquiry Is made as to the par
titions in the bouse and in conclusion
the writer expresses the believe that he
will not have to stay in jail mucn
longer. It was at erst reported that
two letter had been found, but Detec
tive Norton, who has charge of the
material found in the cellar, denies
hat i h in is so. He declares that the
two supposed letters were only parts
of the same letter. A new accusation
now rests againat Holmes' character,
and that is that be maae away with

complete ignorance concerning her
habns. Holmes was uot orten seen
with her, and on these occasions he
kept aloof from his acquintance and
introduced her to no one. Mrs. W. L.
Doyle of 747 Sixty-third street, knows
more about this girl, it is believed,
than anybody else, but tbe cen'ral
tation officers will not permit her to
talk about the case.
The building in which Holmes' Chi
cago crimes were probably concocted
and accomplished will not be pmled
down. II . R. Chandler, a mortgage
broker who holds a Hen on it for $12,
000, advanced to Holmes witn which to
build it, was told by the building in-
apector tbat all tha was necessary wan
to improve the upper portion. This
will be done at once. An order of fore
closure has already been secured irom
the court and tomorrow or n-xt day an
order will be asked for allowing tbe
improvements to be put on. The pro
perty is now worth 1 40.000. Besides
the principal there is $4,000 back inter
