PARIS , Nov. 0. ( Special Correspondence
of the Associated Press. ) Hon. Henry Wat-
terson. editor of the Loutsvlllo Courier-
Journal , who was prominently urged for
the nomination for the presidency at the
Imllnnnpolls convention , has remained In
this city since the election. Ills views upon
the result of tlio national campaign just
closed have been furnished In an Inter
"Tho election of McKlnlcy , " said Mr.
Wattcrnon today , "Is but the beginning of
the end of Ilia struggle which ono way and
another has been going on In the United
States for twenty years. It began In the
west and south In a demand for flat monoy.
No sooner was the greenback party dis
posed of than the free silver party took Its
place. Other questions being at the front
and few of our public men experts In coinage -
ago , free silver was able to commit to the
now monetary delusion many men , who , ex
cept for their Ignorance of this particular
question , could never have been reached
nml who wcro sound to the core as to the
national credit and a safe , stable circulating
medium. Among these public men was Mr.
McKlnlcy himself. The leaders of the flat
money movement , reinforced by the sliver
mlno owners , finally made an Incision Into
iJio republican party , and got possession of
llio machinery of the democratic party. This
culminated In the nomination and defeat
of Mr. Bryan. With that defeat ends the
free silver frenzy and the danger of a 16
to 1 kind. Hut the elements of disorder It
has called Into being and the agrarian Is
sues It has set Into motion are left upon
the nccne , and wo may be sure these will
continue their assaults upon the llfu of
the nation and the Integrity of the people
unHI Ihnv nrrt nwnnt nut nf nxlatpnno In
' 1900 , Mr. McKlnley'H election softies noth
ing ; It merely removes flat money and de
preciated silver dollars from among the
rocks ahead. "
Mr. Wottcrson was pronounced In declar
ing that the union between the rcpubllcann
and tbo gold democrats could not last.
Asked whether he did not think the repub
lican victory had been so overwhelming as
to carry all before It , Mr. Watlerson said :
EVILS IN PROTECTIONISM.
"For the time being , yes. The republican
parly has hod In Its time great good for
tune. It has shown Itself a clover oppor
tunist , but U cannot rest Its case upon the
doctrine of protection. Neither as a pol
icy , nor as a theory , nor as a keynote , can
protectionism hold Its own or stand alone.
It Is at war with the genlua of American
Institutions. It should be no longer neces
sary. If It ever was truly necessary , to the
American manufacturer. It Is the father
of paternalism and the godfather of popu
lism. It sets examples to thosa who Imag-
ina that wealth may be created by legisla
tion. It Imposes grievous burdens on the
agricultural classes ; during periods of de
pression It serves both as an Instigation
and a pretext to the discontented elements.
It Is the occasion of constant corruption
In congress , , -Tho manufacturers them

card Hi .They colildi If they would have
the question settled by statesmen and save
It from the hands of the mob. On such a
line all conservative men .could unite to
rescue the people from monarchist ! ! . But
with McKlnley In the presidency this seems
Impossible , and I confess I dread to tblnk
of the attempt to which ho Is committed
to bring back the McKlnley duties under
the mere pretext of supplying a deficit
which Is not likely to exist at the close of
the fiscal year. "
' "And what do you think all these things
portend with recpect to the future of the
country ? "
SAFE FOR THE PRESENT.
"I think tbo country Is safe for the pres
ent. That the future of the republic will
bo equally sccuto I devoutly hope. But
thoughtful men should not bo lulled Into
fancied security because we have overcome
the dragon of repudiation. The gorgon of
agrarlanism Is yet abroad. The Bryan
movement was most dangerous because It
affected to speak In the name of the people.
The whole people must como to see that
there have been mighty changes going on
In the world before such a government as
ours can bo both safe and free. "
"Ilow do you mean , Mr. AVatterEon ? "
"In 1800 , and under the leadership of
Thomas Jefferson , the principle of demo
cratic government began Its real fight for
life. The Issue then was , 'Are the people
capable of self-government ? ' If Jefferson
had failed the federalist party would have
gene on suppressing Individual liberty and
consolidating the central power until we
should have had a republic In name only a
Florentine commonwealth , perhaps a line
of Mcdlclan princes. But Jefferson suc
ceeded , and the written law of the land ,
strictly construed , was secured to the pee
ple. In 1900 wo shall have to face the
same genrral question In a new form , and
the Issue will bo under existing conditions-
'Aro orderly government and popular gov
ernment concurrent possibilities ? ' If we
are to have many presidential campaigns
like the ono just ended , they are not. Un
less the body of the people can bo brought
to realize the changes of a century of prog
ress , every four years will witness a party
taking the field In support of the alleged
rights of humanity , whoso very existence Is
n mennco to the public order , the peace of
society , the just balance between the sec
tions of the union , the money of the people ,
tiio credit of the nation , and every good
and perfect thing supposed to emanate from
our republican s ) stern. "
GROWTH OF CORPORATIONS.
"What do you regard the most radical
clmngo of the century ? "
In 1800 wo were a tow millions of people ,
and we loved liberty. In 1900 wo ore nearly
a hundred millions of people , and wo love
money. Moreover , Individually and collec
tively , wo have a great deal of money.
Most of this money Is Invested In what are
called corporations. From a handful of In
dividuals wo have become a nation of in
stitutions. The Individual counts * for less
and less , organization for more and more ,
It Is the Idiosyncrasy ot the ago we live In.
Wo may tear down the house , but cannot
at ono and the same time both destroy It
and occupy It. That Is what Mr. Bryan
and his followers are pretending that they
can do. Meanwhile must a man lese his
Individual rights of property because ho has
Invested his accretions In a bank or a rail
way , or even a trust company ? That Is
the question wo have to meet and settle
as against the clamor of the mob before wo
can feel entirely sure about anything. "
"What of the sectional spirit and ten
dency ? "
"Among n people so great In numbers and
occupying such a vast territorial extent
sectional distinctions , growing out ot con
flicting local Interests , are Inevitable. Wo
had a north and a south ; now wo are begin
ning to hear of an cast and a west. Ho
who knows the whole country and Is fa
miliar with tha people from the Canadian
line to the Mexican border and between
the two oceans needs not to bo told that ,
judged by other nationalities , the popular
homogeneity In America Is little short of
amazing. United Germany , United Italy ,
tha Austro-Hungarlan empire , neither
Franco nor England , nor oven the Swlis
confederation , ran boast of anything like
the oneness of origin , character , ties , attui ,
hopes , manners and customs which mark
tbo Inhabitants of the United States of
North America. But the demagogue Is al
ways around , and there Ii never a chance to
etlr up itrlfa between rival communities but
bo flndi work to his hand and particularly
to hU mouth , It being with htm usually a
tund'to-moutb aftalr. It men would atop
and think they would offer some check to
this pestiferous Insect. But environment
counts for more than we commonly allow
it , both In human ethics and action , A few
resolute , self-confident leaders may , as they
often do , compel the reluctant acquiescence
of a timid , vacillating majority , and thus
whole cnmmunltes are driven like herds of
cattle down the mountain side by n sort of
unconscious Impulsion. I do not believe
that In 1SGO-Q1 more than two of the south
ern states actually voted themselves out of
the union ; certainly the states of Virginia ,
North Carolina and Tennessee did not , ami
yet such IB the pressure of Infection that
the Immense union majority of February and
March of the latter year was found In July
fighting tho. battles of the confederacy. "
"Do you apprehend the serious growth of
the new sectionalism , which , with the death
of the old sectionalism , seems to bo strug
gling Into life In America ? "
"If human experience goes for anything
and Is even to count for much , the world
ought to bo wiser for- the lessons It has
had. I am afraid , however , that organized
wealth and power have not yet grown wise
enough to scent the danger before It Is upon
them. The eastern section of our country
Is altcady In danger. I have an Impression
that It docs not see this. Yet It might ,
with profit to Itself and to us all , read n
chapter out of our own history , and take
a hint In time from the experience of the
south. The Institution of African slavery
was thought to confer great benefits upon
Its possessors. H produced In the south a
distinct caste. Recognized by the constitu
tion , property In man came to take on a
kind of divine right , and at last Its sup
porters want to war to defend It. Nothing
should have been clearer than that war was
the best way to destroy It. England had
got rid of slavery In her colonies. Russia
had extinguished serfdom. Brazil was pre
paring to emancipate her slaves. Every
where , except In the southern ntates of
the American union , the world was set
against slavery. To cling with tenacity to
so untenable , and , as has since been re
vealed , to so profitless a system of labor , to
say nothing about morals , was singularly
short-sighted In the public men of the south ,
but to take the field In Its behalf , and
against such odds , seems inconceivable from
the standpoint of rational statesmanship.
But the south did It and dearly paid the
consequences. Let the cast take to Itself
the lesson of the south. In Its concentra
tion ot the wealth of the country and In
Its ostentatious display of this wealth. In
the gradual cultivation of caste. In the ten
dency to hug Its vast riches and In the
finding of means to keep Us millions at
homo , let It behold a danger It will do well
to consider In the light of both ancient ami
modern history , and If It has any real
statesmen , they cannot put their genius and
resources to bettor uses than by the con
struction of policies which will bring them
alliances and make them friends policies
wlso and broad , justifying In some measure
the unlimited accumulations they have been
able to pile up In such a relatively short
compaps of time. Those accretions not only
fervo to breed corruption among them-
Eolvrs , but they unite against the
simple rights of property all the
forces of cupidity and rapine , operating on
agrarian and sectional lines. States have
been saved before now by timely forecast.
Only pride , and foolish prldo at that , had
led Spain to defy the laws alike of God
[ > nd nature In Cuba. Only pride , the prldo
of wealth and caste , will keep tbc cast
from seeing the truth that It must make
a partner of the rest of the country , not
only by generous nnd expounding policies ,
but , above all , by just policies , harder , per
haps , to realize than any other policies.
Wo can always bo generous , but It Is not
always easy to bo Just , wisely just , even
to ourselves. "
"What would you advlso the democratic
party to do' Mr. Wattcrson ? "
"What I would advise It to do and what
It la likely to do nro different matters. Per
haps It could not do anything better by
uWaypf a , starter , than to appolnti , the jiext

LONDON , Nov. 18. The Dally News states
thit It learns the powers are considering a
scheme for financial control and the placing
of the administration of Turkey In the
hands of a responsible European minister.
DJgar Vincent ( present director ot the
Ottoman bank ) becoming the minister ot
finance , a Russian ofllccr the minister of
war and a Frenchman minister of the In
terior , the grand vizier remaining president
of the council ot state , subject to the
"Thero Is reason to believe , " the Dally
News says , "that Germany and Austria will
consent to such a scheme , which would
maintain tbo Integrity of the Ottoman domin
ion , but would not necessarily keep the
present sultan on the throne. The pill will
bo gilded with financial assistance. The
scheme Is believed to provide for first rais
ing a loan of 15,000,000. to bo applied to
the administration and the reduction of the
army , each vlllayot to have n European
receiver General , responsible to the minis
ter , who Is to collect taxes , salaries , etc. ;
the revision of the civil and military
service , the dismissal of Incompetent and
Ill-reputed officers , the reorganization of the
gendarmes under Turkish and European olll-
cers and equal rights to all religious com
The Dally News also has a Vienna dis
patch , which says : "Edgar Vincent spent
two days hero In negotiation over the pro
posed Turkish loan. Ho considers that suc
cess depends on the three unfulfilled condi
tions of remodeling the Turkish debt com
mission on the plan of the Egyptian com
mission , with a Russian delegate and the
powers to guarantee the loan. It Is reported
the czar has promised a Russian delegate. "

Europe a crusade , which , while It would not
benefit Armenians , uould perhaps Impose
upon England overwhelming responsibilities.

Direct Conlllet. ,
KANSAS CITY , Nov. IS. The Santa Fe
receivership today developed Into a direct
conflict between the stJte and federal courts.
Judge Myers at Oskaloosa appointed a new
receiver and Judge Foster at Topeka Issued
on order to the employes of the road not
to respect the order.
The day's proceedings opened at Oskaloosa ,
Kan. Judge Myers appointed ex-United
States Senator John Martin receiver of the
Atchlson , Topcki & Santa Fo railway prop
erty In Kansas In place of Charles P. John
son , whom ho previously appointed , but who
failed to qualify. The order appointing Mar
tin receiver also enjoins the railway com
pany from bringing any action against him
tn other than the Jefferson county court ,
over which Judge Myers presides. Judge
Albert H. Horton was the only ono of the
opposing counsel present , but ho took no
part except to make notes of the proceed
ings. The railroad attorneys have not recog
nized Judge Myers' court at all and It Is
their policy not to do so. The court fixed
Ilccclver Martin's bond at $25,000 and des
ignated Messrs. Hlte of Topeka and Gcb-
hart 2nd Shacffcr of Ojlialoosa as his attor
neys. The court did not adjourn sine die ,
but until December 4 at 3 o'clock.
Anticipating the appointment of a now re
ceiver by Judge Myers at Oskaloosa , A. A.
Hurd , general attorney for the railway com
pany , this morning obtained n supplement
ary order from Judge C. G. Foster of the
United States court at Topeka. The order
directs all tbo ofllccrs and employes of the
Atchlson , Topeka. & Santa Fo Hallway com
pany In the state of Kansas to continue the
operation , management and control of said
railway company , as the same has hereto
fore been conducted , until the further order
of said United States circuit court shall be
Later , In Judge Foster's court , Ilostngton ,
r.mlth & Dallas , representing the Union
Trust company of New York , which has be
come a party to the action by a cress bill
filed In the federal court lost week , appeared
before Judge Foster and presented a lengthy
petition asking that Senator Martin ct al be
restrained from Interfering with the present
management of the road. The petition re *
cltos the actions of the Oskaloosa court In
the matter , and says that "notwithstanding
the filing of the transcript In the case In
this court and the orders made by this court ,
the said district court of Jefferson county
has assumed to appoint ono John Martin as
receiver of the property , at the Instance of
H. T. Phlnney , county attorney of Jefferson
county , and his associates , Henry Kcclcr , D.
U. Hlte , H. B. Shacfter and Marshal Gob-
hart. " Continuing , the petition holds thai
at the time of the appointment of said ic-
cclvcr. the United States circuit court held
jurisdiction over the Jefferson county court ,
and that the appointment of Martin Is void.
It , therefore , prays that , , the said Martin ,
Phlnney. Hlte , Shaeffer and Gebhart "be
enjoined and restrained from In , any manner
Interfering \ vhli'tho'potstnLtonnnaninenleiit
or control of ( be railroad and all the prop
erty of the said railway company In the state
of Kansas and elsewhere. " Under the show
ing thus made Judge Foster granted a re
straining order against John Martin and the
Just before the restraining order was
served upon him Senator Martin was seen
by n reporter at Topeka and said ho would
qualify as receiver Immediately. Later he
said ho should respect the order of the
United States court. Mr. Hurd , the Santa
Fo attorney , says that In his judgment the
federal court has jurisdiction ot the case ,
and ho believes Judge Foster will eo bold.
A big fight Is likely to center In Judge
Foster's court , lasting several days , when
the case shall como before him next week.
County Attorney Phlnney of Jefferson county ,
who last week was co-operating with the
attorney general , has resumed his original
status In tbo case and Is now acting with
Judge Kcclcr , whom he dismissed from thr
cass last Saturday. Half an hour before
court opened yesterday afternoon Mr. Pbln-
ncy was In consultation with Assistant At
torney General Goddard , but when the pro
ceedings opened ho was half way back to
his original position and tn n few minutes
ho was co-operating with Judge Kecler
CONFLICT MAY BE SEUIOUS.
Under a Topeka , Kan. , date the Star this
evening prints the following : "The turn
taken In the Santa Fo receivership case
onrns tbo way for n most serious conflict
between the federal and Btato courts.
Should the receiver appointed by County
Judge Myers flnally-succecd In qualifying
CR > demand possession of the railway the
officers of the latter would refuse to yield ,
standing on the expectation that Judge Fos
ter of tbo federal court would assume juris
diction of the case. Ills authority resisted
by the railroad people , tbo receiver's recourse -
course would be to ask Judge Myers for an
order calling out the posse comttatus to
help him to take possession of the property.
Such an order would authorize the sheriff
to summon every male citizen of Jefferson
county , If necessary , to put the receiver In
possession of tbo railroad. Then Judge Fos
ter , presuming that he would assume juris
diction , will order the United States mar-
Elm ! to appoint an army of special deputies
to enforce the processes of his court. Then
the sheriff could call upon the governor
for the state mllltiu and the United States
marshal In turn could appeal to the secre
tary of war for troops and thus bring on n
collision bctwecr. the state and the federal
government. Nobody looks for anything of
this kind to happen , but Assistant Attorney
General Qoddard says there Is ample room
In the case for It and should the two
courts nnd the parties In Interest become
stubborn and lose sight of the real merits
of the case a miniature war would result.
But It Is likely that after a little flurry ot
excitement , sober second thought will come
and the case will be settled without even
coming to a hearing before any court on
Its merits. "

NEW YOIIK , Nov. IS. "Faith and Hu

of Jewish Women. The legend wna adopted
nt today's session of the council , which also
decided upon n badge not to exceed 50 cents
In cost , to bo worn by " > 'Jr3Bf ot tuo co-w

The next question , that of fixing the cor
responding secretary's compensation , was
taken up , and the words "out ot which she
shall pay the expensed connected with the

The afternoon session was called to order
by Mrs. Rosenberg of Philadelphia. Mrs.
Solomon , president of the council , today dis
cussed the criticism of President Clovcland'n
Thanksgiving day proclamation. It being
asserted that a clause therein recognized
the divinity of Christ , Mrs. Solomon said :
"I have read the proclamation only In part
and to me It seemed a most magnificent
document. In my opinion It cannot give
offense to anybody and I doubt If any feel
ing exists among our spiritual advisers
over the matter. "
The regular order of business was sus
pended to allow Hey. Dr. Sabbato Morals
of Philadelphia to address the council.
Habl Morals Is one of the leading TalmudIsts -
Ists and Oriental scholars In this country.
His name came up at yesterday's meeting
tn connection with Claude Monteflore's criti
cism of the bible.
"I deslro to say I differ entirely from
the author of that work. " said Dr. Morala.
Then , taking up the work of the council ,
ho said : "No one would have dreamt of
such a meeting as this four years ago. It
Is n great event In the history of Judaism In
America , and It may spica ! still further
I had a wrong Impression with regard * o
my sisters In the far west. I thought them
lukewarm , but I am gratified beyond meas
ure to see they arc rekindling old fires and
bringing up their children In the faith
of their fathers. I beg of you to stand by
your religion and In order to do so you must
understand what your religion proposes
You must learn more Is necessary to make
a good Jew than attendance at the syna
gogue and faith In Hebre.v chariMcs. ' '
Tbo change In article II , dcillnpIth ;
the objects of the council , caused another
spirited debate. Originally the article read
"The purpose of this organization Is : Tc
bring about closer relations among Jewish
xvomen , etc. " Some delegations contended
that the word "Jewish" would bar the roun
ell from the Woman's Federated clubs In
several of the states. This brought Mrs
Hebecca Kohut of this city to her feet with
the statement the council was first of nil
things an organization ot Jewish women.
"Let us not sail under falsa colors ; let
It go out to the world that wo arc a council
of Jews and banded together for the 'purpose
of keeping- alive 'our faith. "
Mrs , Kohut was followed by. Mrs. Esther

'ELLIOTT ' CAUGHT is IOWA
Supposed Murderer of Hutsonpillor Arrested
at Oodar Rapids.
EXPRESSES VERY LITTLE CONCERN
-Some Additional raet * Which To ml (
llrliii ; the Crime More ConcliiNlvely
tti Klllott'N Door Kvlilenou
lleforo the Coroner.
Yesterday the police gathered much valu
able Information In collection with the mur
der of Hay Ilutsonplllcr , which occurred
at the Windsor hotel Tuesday afternoon.
The Information points almost conclusively
to the fact that Elliott , who U now under
arrest at Cedar Uaplds , la. , Is the assassin ,
It was shown that Instead of taking a westbound -
bound train for Hillings , as Klllott stated
to several people he pivpoard to do , that
ho boarded the eastbouml Northwestern
train which leaves the Union depot at 4:45. :
llcforo doing 30 ho checked with Uaggagc-
mau Hodman a heavy box and a valise for
Chicago. There was a alight excess lit
weight which he paid , The baggageman refused -
fused to accept a tuachlntosh , which was
strapped upon the valise , and Klllott , pullIng -
Ing It out from beneath the strap , throw It
to an attache of the place named John
Benson , saying : "You can have that If It
will nt you. "
For Bomo time after Elliott's disappear
ance , the police were completely In the
dark no to the direction ho had pursued. It
was thought for several reasons that ho
had gone west. H'o was known to have )
friends living In the Dig Horn basin ami
ho would naturally turn his flight In that
direction. The westbound trains wcro
searched and failed to bring to light the
fugitive. Telegrams were also sent to Inter
cept the eastbound trains , and It was upon
the description furnished In one of Ihcso
that a Northwestern conductor caused El
liott's arrest at Cedar Uaplds.
LEFT A SMALL SATCIIRL.
While checking his baggage at the Union
depot , Klllott forgot a small hand satchel
whirl ] ho had taken with him from the
Windsor hotel. It wcs discovered at the
depot yesterday by detectives and taken to
the police station. When It was opened It
\Nn found to contain a number of letter *
and articles belonging to Hutsonplller. The
satchel unquestionably belongs tn the dead
man , ns the clerk at the hotel atatcd that
he had ono of about that dlscrlptlon when
he registered there.
The box checked to Chicago Is also thought
to bo the property of the deceased. It was
the baggage which was retained for a board
bill by the proprietor of the Metropolitan
hotel , and wl-lch was redeemed by Elliott
Tuesday afternoon. After paying a bill of
$3 at the hotel named the box and vallsa
were dispatched direct" to the depot by order
Jack Vannoy , -acquaintance of the two
men , stated to the police that Klllott wa
formerly stationed with the Seventh United
States rivalry In Arizona for several yearn
and that ho had also served no a clerk for
a short time In a New Orleans hotel.
While In Omaha both men had bccomo
Acquainted with a girl , Mattle Sweeten. v'ko
rooms near Seventeenth and Howard streets.
Tim. girl was said to liavo a picture of Kl
llott which' he had given her. The girl when
questioned denied that shc > hail the photo

ono but had refused to let her havd It. " f
A -BAD FAMILY.
From Information given by Jack Vanno ?
the pollco yesterday afternoon located n
former school teacher who resides In South
Omaha , who was acquainted with Klllott ,
Her name Is Mrs. Kmm.t Talbot , she being
the wlfo of Cattle Inspector Claude Talbot
of South Omaha , who resides at 722 NorUi
Twenty-second street. She wan Klltott'd
teacher fourteen yearn ago In Alton , 0. , a
timall town about ten miles from Columbus.
Klllott was then about 13 years old and en
joyed a fairly good reputation for a boy , but
his family had a hard name In the neighbor *
hood. Ills father served three years In the
penitentiary for arson. Since the school
days had passed the teacher had lost slKht
of her former pupil. Elliott scums , how
ever , to have remembered his teacher , for
a couple of days ago two men , who are sup *
posed to have been Hutsonplller and Elliott ,
called at the house , but Mrs. Talbot waa
absent at the time and failed to see them.
The pollco had a complaint ( lied against
Elliott yesterday , charging him with ttio
murder of Hutsonplller , and Sergeant Cox
left on the 4:45 : eastbound Northwestern
train with a certified copy of the complaint ,
the original of which Is at present at the
pollco station. A request for requisition
papers was sent to Lincoln yesterday with
directions to send to DCS Molnes when
Issued. Another copy of the Information
against Klllott was sent to the governor In
Dca Molnes , and a request also enclosed to
the effect that when papers wcro received )
from Lincoln they should bo forwarded to
Cox , who will be In waiting with hla pris
oner at Cedar Itaplds.
It Is possible that Elliott may return to
this city without the proper papers being
served upon him , but the authorities Intend
to take time by the forelock and have them
on hand should the prisoner prove obstinate' ;
MAY HAVE BEEN A QUARUEL.
Ono clew was unearthed by the coroner
yesterday In the room where the murder oc
curred which tends to show that Elliott aud
his victim may have bail a struggle before
the latter was felled with the coupling pin.
Beneath a mass of hlocd-dtacolarrd towels
which were found In a slop Jar the frag.
mcntH of a piece of letter paper were brought
to light. When pieced together It was Idcn-
tllled as a receipt for $15 In Klllntt's hand
writing. The docgmcnt wan written on a
sheet of hotel paper , and purported to bo a
receipt In full from Hutconplllcr to Klllott
for the amount which he had advanced him
to buy the pass. Hutsonplller's signature ,
however , wan lacking , and It U thought qulto
probable that after Elliott had submitted
the document to his friend and mot with a ,
refusal , that the fatal blow wan struck by
the angered man. The paper Is being held
The prisoner's Initials are somewhat In
dispute. When registering nt the Metropoli
tan hotel ho signed the name of "C. Kl
llott. " At the Windsor he gave the nama
of " 0 , Elliott , " whlla at the name time
thosn In his watch and on the receipt wcro
C. H , Klllott. The Information charging
him with murder was rnado out In the numo
of C. II. Klllott , this being supposed to be
his right name.
Yesterday at 4 o'clock Coroner Burkct
empaneled n jury to Investigate Into tha
caiiscu which led to llutsonplller'H death.
It wan composed of I ) , I1. Johnson , H , F.
Brass , William McKay , M. K , Bears , F. J.
Ilurkloy and Luclen Stephens. A largo
nun.'icr of witnesses were examined and
Hovcrul now features of the case brought
Dr. K. W. Leo was first called. Ho had
oxamlnnd the remains and had found a
contusion over the left car. Thuro wan an
other ono about an Inch and a half ubovo
thlH and 11 fracture around the base of the
skull which was about eight Inches la
length was also found. On the right fllda
of the head there was a compound fructuro ,
the hone being smashed Into small pieces.
This fracture wan about three Inches In
extent. Witness was of the opinion that
four or five blows had been struck , Over
the forehead there was a contusion which
had probably been made by the body falling
to the floor and the left oyc had suffered
a hemorrhage which greatly discolored It ,
Was of the opinion that any one nf the blows
would have been sufficient to cause death.
In addition to the blows delivered on the
head there were bloody vpota on the throat
which Indicated that tha murderer had tried
to thrnttlo his victim before striking him.
Witness was of the opinion that all thp
