had bcoa rend, Cliulrnmn Charles S.
Falrchilds, who presided, bald that,
although tho resolutions were ad
dressed to tho Stato Democracy, thoy
did not apply to that organiza
tion in any way, as no resolution
pledging support to tho candidates
nominated by tho Democratic staid
convention was adopted by tho
Btato Democracy county conven

committco adopt such a resolution.
Tho meeting instructed tho secretary
to acknowledge tho receipt of tho
Tho question of tho evening was as
to tho advisability of sending dele

tion. It was decided to send a con
testing delegation, tho vote being 84
to 8 for that motion.
In tho Tammany mcettnc tho ele
ment known ns tho Young Democrncy
received a rebuff. Henry D. 1'urroy,
its leader, offered five resolutions for
tho unillcation of local Democrats arid

Little Rock, Arlc, . .. J. CL
Allon, alias Caldwell, the convict serv
ing a ten years' sentence hero for
liorso stealing, has made a statement
to Warden Moore in regard to II. II.
Holmes nnd his operations. The war
Sen believes the man knows a great
deal more than ho has told, but ho had
tho statement put in writing, read to
Allon and verified in every particular.
Ho first met Holmes under the name
ot Pratt in Tennessee in tho fall of
1892. About threo weeks afterward
Holmes, Pietzel, Minnie Williams and
Allen met in St. Joseph and Minnie's
Fort Worth property was deeded to
Allen in the name of A. E. Bond. Tho
deal wan made with tho understand
ing all around thut It was to bo swind
ling operntion After muklng trips to
Leadvillo and Denver they went to
"Pletzcl's conduct at Fort Worth
jaused Holmes to send him to Kansas
City. Whilo in Kansas City Pietzel
wrote sevornl threatening letters to
Holmes, in which he said that he
would turn up all the rascality unless
Holmes sent lilm money. Pietzel was
furnished money three times sent by
me at Holmes' request. Holmes vis
ited Plotzel at Kansas City to got him
to sign tho necessary papers to sccuro
a loan of 810,000 on the Fort Worth
property. Whilo l'ietzel was In Kan
sas City, Holmes and Pat Quinlan, who
had joined us at Fort Worth a short
time before wo left that place, had
several talks about putting Pietzel out
of the way, because Holmes had be
come afraid of him on account of
his drinking too much and knowing
too much. (It wns known to us all
thnt Pietzel carried a 910,000 life in
surance policy). At our last talk
upon this subject, threo days before
leaving Fort Worth, it was understood
thnt Pietzel was to bo killed. I was
selected to assist Holmes in doing tho
job, but in what manner It was to bo
dono was not dellnitely settled, only
that Holmes remarked that he had
something that would make tho job
easy, and a large trunk was purchased
In Fort Worth in which to nlaco Plet
zcl's body after being killed. At this
point Holmes patted mo on tho back
and said: 'Mascot, it is 810,000 and a
trip to Long Branch, nnd from there
to California, and more buildings.
That night I advised Holmes to quit
the business, us ho had cnoutrh money
not to resort to murder. Ho replied
that ho had been at the business bo
long that it hud become perfectly
natural to him, and ho would not quit
"Tho plan agreed upon to dispose of
Pietzel was that wo were to meet him
in St Louis aud together go from
thoro to Chicago, whero ho was to bo
'fixed.' It was between Fort Worth
und Dcnlson that Holmes told mo
thot I must liavo my life insured for
810,000 in favor of my littlo niece.
Remembering tho lurgo trunk bought
for Pletzel's body, 1 determined to
purt company with Holmes, which I
did ut Dcnlson, and I have never seen
him since, but received as many as
threo letters from him.
"The last time 1 saw Minnlo Will
iams wus at our meeting in St. Joseph.
Holmes told her that sYio must leave
the United States for a period of threo
or four years. India was agreed upon
as the country to which sho should go.
I went to tho depot with her, while
Holmes bought her ticket and checked
her baggage, but where to I did not
know, win io at core norm i reau
Jhreo letters from Minnie Williams to
iloiines. They purported to bo from
India, tho place 1 have forgotten. If.
Minnie Williams is dead she has been
put out of the way since this exolte
racnt wus gotten up in regard to
"The building in Chicago known as
the 'Castlo' was erected especially for
a 'death trail.' and durinir my ussocla-
tion with Holmes 1 wns in it often.and
in fact occupied u room there. A
strauger to tho city during tho world's
fair was decoyed ,futo the castlo and
murdered for his money. Ho did not
huvo as much money ns Holmes
thought only 83,700. A bright littlo
boy was enticed into the castle during
tho fair and hold In n room for ilvo
days for n reward for his recovery.
No reward beinc offered thov
wore afraid to turn him out nnd tho
gas was turned into his room at
night und ho was sutYocntcd. I could
mention other such cases of crimo com
mitted in the 'cubtlo' nnd discussed in
my presoncc, but these tiro BUllloiont
except one, and that was of Nannie
Williams. The cuuso of hor killing, ns
explained by Holmes, was thut one of
tho girls must uo put out oi mo wuy
and thnt he could manugo Minnlo
easier thnn he could Nannie. Minnlo
Williams wus crazy in lovo with
Holmes und she wus jealous of her sis
ter, as Holmes was paying her some
uttontlon too. Ho took particular
Ealns to increuso her jealousy to work
er up to tho point of putting Nunnlo
out of tho way."
Allen concluded by saying that
overy word in his statement was true
and that ho did not make it to seouro
u pardon; that ho know Governor
Clurko too well to bellovo that ho
would issue n pardon unless tho evi
dence would break Holmes' neck.
