It is now settled beyond the shadow of n
loubt that Noland , the suicide , had fully do-
ermlncd to kill Kittle Edwards before ho
vent to the house on the evening of the
ragcdy. It seems that , on the day of the
crime , one of N. W. Williams' men , who was
vorklng on a now building near the transfer ,
quit work nt the usual time nnd started up
town. Near the corner of Sixteenth street
nnd Hroadway ho overtook a stranger who
walked along with him. As the follow was
considerably under the influence of liquor
ils companion did not think it strange that
10 talked n great deal , and paid very little
mention to what ho said. Subsequent de
velopments showed that It was moro than
thu foolish talk of a drunken Imbecile , Said
no stranger : " 1'vo pot It In for some folks
n this town. They have put the cons onto
no , and 1 will play oven with them for It.
There Is a d d up town who steered
them straight against me , nnd 1 will fix her
BO she will never plpo again. You will read
about It in the papers. "
Sure enough ho did "road about It in the
mpors" on the following morning , and ho
lastily repaired to the undertaking rooms of
? lold & Estop to see the dead man.
At the first glance ho recognized In the
jody of the sulcldo the remains of his com-
mnion of the preceding evening. Noland
md undoubtedly referred to the Edwards
woman when making his terrible
It is known that a informed him that the
> ollco were on his tracit , and that a woman
ind given him away. It Is also certain that
.ho pollco were looking for him , and wcro In
the ofllco of the Ogden house at the tune the
shooting took place , intending to visit the
Sdwards bagnio in a few minutes on u search
'or the young desperado. As ho told n news-
joy on the street three hours baforo that ho
was going to kill himself , It Is qulto probable
, liat the plans for the double tragedy had
been fully matured In his mind long before
10 started to carry them into execution. Ho
iaa committed a crime that would send him
to the penitentiary for several years , and ho
determined to rorengo himself on the woman
who ho thought hnu been instrumental In
bringing him to justice , nnd then take his
own life. The mystery that surrounded the
shooting is now entirely cleared away , and
, ho motive and its attendant circumstances
.aid bare.
Fortunately , the bullet intended for him
self faithfully performed its work , and the
county was spared the expense of ofllcially
nmwellng the mystery. The woman , his
ntcndcd victim , still lives , and is In a fair
way to recover. Additional facts , that have
atoly been revealed , show how very slight
was the circumstance that gave her a longer
ease of life. Since she recovered conscious
ness it has been thought str.uigo that she
did not know what was the matter , and had
no knowledge whatever of the attempted as

The work of recovering the Jewelry stolen
jy Noland and hs pals Is proceeding slowly.
Officer Thomas has the matter In charge ,
and has thus fur secured about SSOO worth.
It has been found that the "swag" was
"planted" in the cellar under Jack Green's
saloon , and that after Noland suicided It
was "raised" and transferred to a point near
the Northwestern "Y. " The party who then
liad the property in charge is known to the
police us an all-around crook nnd tough. Not
withstanding the vigorous work of the police ,
the stolen goods are still being disposed of in
the city , and the channels through which
the work is being done can not bo located.
The police have managed , however , to got
tiola of nearly every article that has been
thus given out. Thcro is no "fence" em
ployed to market the goods , but the thieves
are attending to the work themselves.

Colonel Hnsslcr Astonished to Find
So Mnny of Ills Comrades Alive. .
The number of original Harrison men
in Washington is now only exceeded by
the number of members of the Third
Iowa regiment , of which Secretary
Noble wnsj adjutant , says a Washington
letter. Every man wlio was 11 member
of that famous fighting rogimontduring
the war , in quest of ollieo , thinks that
he has u special claim upon the secre
tary of the interior. Ono day last
week Secretary Noble , Assistant Sec
retary Bussey , whd was colonel of the
Third Iowa , and Colonel Hasslor , the
democratic appointment clerk of the in
terior department and a great wag ,
were in tlio secretary's olllco , when the
door opened and a gentleman from the
wild and woolly west entered the olllco.
Ho was welcomed , by Colonel Bussoy
and General Noble , ana the former said :
"Colonel Htissler , let mo make you
acquainted with Major Pickoroll , of
Dakota , formerly of the Third Iowa. "
Hasslor a"nd the major shook hands ,
and the former with great gravity said :
"Major , that regiment , I boliovotook
no part in the war. "
"Well , sir , " replied the major , indig
nantly , "I should think it did. That
regiment fought in some of the severest
battles.of the war. "
"Why , Ilasslcr , " said the secretary ,
"what made you ask the question'1"
"Oh , simply because so many of its
members are alive , " was Hasslor's re
ply , and the secretary , appreciating the
sarcasm , almost fell from his chair in a
paroxysm of laughter.
Tinted Statues.
In reference to the question whether
the Greeks tinted their statues a corre
spondent of London Notes and Queries
says there is not the least doubt that
the answer must bo in tlio affirmative.
There is the amplest evidence of the
fact that the sculptures of the Parthe
non at least some of them were tinted
hut they wcro not painted with solid
paint like the statues in the Crystal
palaco. Architecture and sculpture
were often tinted , not alone by the
Crooks , hut by the Etruscans , Assyr
ians , and Fgyptians. Colored statuary
abounded in the middle ages , as anyone
may see for himself who examines mo-
ditcval monuments.
Anti-Pass Bonk System.
A good many merchants of Atlanta ,
Ga. , have adopted the "anti-pass book
system. " It consists of the issuing of
hooks with the merchant's and holder's
name written on the cover , the book
containing $ .50 worth of coupon tickets ,
numbered 6,10 , nnd 25 cents , and SI.
The theory is that when a customer
purchases a hook , whether for cash or
an advance , each purchase is to bo
