Cuicauo, 111, July 26.- oi so aeosa .local a find was found yesterday as Wednesday by the men digging in the cellar of the Holmes building, but it was one which m.y go much farther towards securiug the couvictiou of the murderer. One of the workmen fouud in a pile of rubbish a letter signed -II. H. Howard," aua asted May 5, Ibva The signature is one of the many aliases used by Holme and ot e of the com monest cf the lot The letter is iu bis 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 jccupiea the building with Druggist Robinson. The letter touches particularly as to the doings of Janitor Qumlan and asks where he now is. It then goes on in a jocular manner to discuss the fact ol the recipient whether be has seeu them or their goats about the building. 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 Miss Cieirrand, with whom be lives In the bouse at Sixty-third and Wallace street, just before be had the Williams girls there. The neighbors' remember but little of the girl, not even her first name. She was a stately looking blonde about tweuty-ftve years of age and lived with Holmes something less than six months.

Ptnmi Mesneneer Nettleion said In regard to tbe hold-up: 1 was dozing in my chair, near tbe safe, about 12 o'clock last night and the train was making about forty mile an hour.

There were two who were worx ing in the car and two who stayed on guard outside. The men had handker chiefs tied over their faces and I could not recognize tin m." Sir Julian Pauncefote's letter to Mr. Gresham will be undoubtedly pervert ed In certain quarters where it 1 cou sidered eminently "American" to sneer at anything emanating from a British representative. But it was, neverthe less, a dignified and courteous tribute to the memory of a man who In his dip lomatic relations was actuated by an "unswerving spirit of honor, justice and conciliation." That is a fitting summary of the Secreary's rule of conduct, and will stand lu the record of his short diplomatic career. Solomon said a false balance was an abomination, and the wise men of the lower bouse of Missouri are consider ing a plan for giving false weighers lots of trouble.

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 est and taxes due on it. A few more bones were found today in the same hole from which those were taken yesterday. They were verubrie and a portion of a human shoulder blade. Tbe force of men was doublet! and the work is nrogressing. The be lief is gaining ground that Holmes' wife, who lives in the suburbs, knows more about her husband's crimes than she cares to tell. It is probable she will be put In the sweat boi. Mrs. tiuinlan and Mrs. Doyle, who were ex amined today, are still under police re straint, as are tjuinlan and Owens, though none of them are actually un der arrest.
