mltted the Information to tha United
State Navy department and police head
Warnings by wireless were sent broad
cast over the Atlantic from stations on
the eastern seaboard advising the Sax
onla and Philadelphia to ateer toward
each other. Commissioner Woods an
nounced that the Navy department had
arranged to send a fast cruiser after tne
Answer from Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia replied that every
thing aboard had been Identified and that
all was well. The Cunard line was noti
fied by Commissioner Woods and It also
endeavored to reach the steamers by
At police headquarters shortly before
noon It was said that the Saxonla had
not replied to the wireless message sent
It advising that Frank Holt had written
his wife that the steamer would be de
stroyed by an explosion today.
The failure of the Saxonla to reply was
not regarded as of especial significance,
as It Was thought It might have passed
out ef the wireless sona of communica
tion. It la now four days out and It waa
said It might be difficult for It to have
a wireless meaaaga relayed to ahore.
The Haxonla haa 134 passengers aboari.
of whom 115 are tn the cabins. Tha Phil-1
adelphla haa aboard 611. Of these 206
were In tha flrat cabin, 206 in the second
cabin and W In tha ateerage.
At both offices It waa said that It would
he practically Impossible for anyone to
paaa the many lines of guards at the
piers and to place explosives aboard the
ships. The Cunard line stated that there
were six linee of guards protecting Its
veaaals from Intruders.
In Holt's letter to his wife he advised
her to watch the newspapers of Wednes
day, July 7. today,' and told her that
she would see In those papers Just what
ha had done.
"Steamers leaving - New- York. Jly t.
will be destroyed In xnldocean by an ex
plosion," Holt Is quoted as having writ
ten. On the martin of the tetter there
was a pencilled admonition to hla wife
to aay nothing about what he had writ
ten. The fact that such a letter had been
written by Mr. Morten's aaaailant, pre
sumably prior to hla attempt on Mr.
Morten's life,' wss known to the police
at o'clock yesterday morning, but no
public announcement waa made of It un
til today. The flrat word of thla letter
came from Olen Covs. Its contents were
divulged by a man who had talked with
Holt in hla cell for 'a 'long time yester
day. Thla man refused te permit the
use of his ' name.' but because of hla
atandlng there was no doubt as to ths
authenticity ef hla assertions.
Ifaat for Dynamite.
The dynamite with which Holt In
tended. It le believed to dastioy the Sax
onla and the Philadelphia, arae part of
a ahtpment of 100 pounds received by
Holt recently at Syoaset. L. I., under tha
alias ef C. Hendricks. Seventy pounds of
the dynamite haa been accounted for.
Three pounds were taken to Washington
for the bomb exploded In the oapitol; the
remaining aUty-aaven pounds were found
last night in a trunk In this city. -
Police searching for the other thirty
pounds of tha shipment had uncovered
no trace ef ft at noon today. It waa pos
sible, the police say, that thla thirty
pounda waa aboard the two steamers.
The ' wireless warning In . the case ef
the Philadelphia resulted la a thorough
search of the Philadelphia's cargo. It was
Inferred from the meaaaga received from
the steamer's captain. The bomb, if any
was aboard, waa not found.
- Deteettvea aewrva Piers.
Detectlvea today examined all tha left
over peckagea on the piers of the A marl
can and Cunard lines, but none of them
seemed to tally with the description of
the dynamite bomb they were working
on- The police do not think the bomb.
If It was sent, was dispatched by parcel
The police learned today that Holt had
bought 109 culminating rape, 100 feat of
f uaa, 100 electrical explosive cape -and 106
sticks of dynamite from a local powder
company. Thla order was delivered to
Holt at Central Park. L. I., on June tk
It was ascertained today that Holt left
Ithaca en June 36 with the sulphurio
acid that he uaed la the bomb . that he
exploded a the capital at Washing toe

Teat ot Holt's Letter.
WAS HINOTON, July T.-The text of
Holt'g letter telegraphed te the Navy de
partment waa aa follows-.
"A steamer leaving New Toik for
Liverpool should sink Ood willing on
the 7tb. It la the Philadelphia er the
Saxony (8axonia), but I am not quits
sura, aa thaae Wft on tha ad er td."
"On the martin, of the letter waa writ
ten: Tear thla off until after this happens."
Ths subatDe of Holt's latter waa aent
by radio to the commanders of the two
vessels, aa well as the department's re
port that it had been unable to verify
that explosives had been put aboard one
ahlp or tha otiier. Two other trans
atlantic liners left New Tork about tha
same time, and navy of flclala expect that
they also would pick up the meaaaga and
make Invastlgattoaa. The vague nature
of Holt'e aneaaaae made It possible, of
ficials thought, that soma steamer other
thaa those ha named had been marked
for 6 est ruction.
A copy of Holt'e latter also reached
the nary from Superintendent Pullman
of the Waahingtya polica, who received
it from Joaa E. C ochre 11 of DaJlaa, It
waa tranamltted with fee statement that

tip. He aaked me hew Cutting and
Allen, two Untreralty Of Chicago pro
feaaors were getting along. I told him
and asked him If ha nw them. He said
he did not, but had heard ef them."
"Holt'a carriage and speech had stsyed
with me and reminded me of some one,
but I could not rememter. Then my
mental associations bvitan to work and
t said 'I knew who It is. It Is Muenter.'

HE LEAVES NOTE FOR HIS WIFE
NEW YORK, July 7. Frank
Holt, the man who shot J. P. Mor
gan, lay dead today in an undertak
ing establishment at Hemstead, L. I.,
and the New York police had In their
possession his trunk, containing- 134
half-pound stick of dynamite with
which, It is believed, he planned to
wreck public building! in New York
and other cities.
An autopsy early today established ths
fact that Holt committed suicide by leap
ing from the top of his cell door In the
Mlneola. I I.. Jail.
Walter R. Jonea, the Mlneola coroner,
liwued a statement after an autopsy had
been performed by the prison physician.
"Holt cams to hla death by a compound
fracture of tha skull and cerebral hem
orrhage caused by a fall."
Although the autopay performed on
Holt's body early today by Dr. Ouy Cleg-
horn established definitely that his death
was due to a fractured akult, Walter R.
Jonea, the coroner, said that he would
hold an Inquest Into the manner In which
Holt met his death. This, Mr. Jones
said, was purely formal.
Gaard Telia His Story.
Jeremiah O'Ryan, the keeper wno was
on guard at Holt'a cell when Holt com
mltted suicide today, gave a connected
story of what happened. O'Ryan said
that he had been employed by Sheriff
Pettit to guard the prisoner, with Inatvuc
tiona to watch him from o'clock at
nltht till In the mornlnt- Last night
when O'Ryan went to the entrance of
Holt'a cell Holt seemed to n cheerful.
"I had some food today and managed
to retain It." O'Ryan aald Holt told him.
"I feel much better now, but I must get
soma alaep. These deteotlvea have been
coming in and asking me all kinds of
creations, and they have been liotherlng
me day and night. I must get sleep. I
ha,ve got an Important statement to make
tomorrow, and I must re able to eor
vlnce people that what I aay is true."
O'Ryan aald he told Holt to go ahead
and aleep and that Holt turned over on
hla side with his back to O'Ryan and
remained there for about an hour. Then
O'Ryan heard a nolae In tha next corri
dor. He glanced at Holt and saw that he
was facing the door, but apparently Holt
was eleeplnt. O'Ryan then crept, ha save,
on his hands and knees down the corri
dor to check the disturbance so that
Holt might sleep. He looked Into the
other corridors and found there was noth
ing there. As he was about to start
back, O'Ryan aaid, he heard a noise like
a revolver shot.
Trlpa Over Hla Body.
"I ran back to tha cell and said to
myself, 'He's done it. Somebody slipped
him a gun.' T looked Into hia cell and
didn't sen him. Then I thought that
maybe he had been ahet from outside. I
said to myself, 'He might shoot me,' s
I drew my ' revolver and went - Into the
cell, expecting him to Jump et me. It waa
dark and I couldn't aee him. I tripped
and fell. When I looked down I saw
that I had fallen over his body."
Martin W. Littleton, who had been re
tained aa counsel for Holt, - reached
Mlneola today and examined Holt'a cell
closely. Mr. Littleton climbed up the Iron
bare en the aide of the cell as Holt ap
parently had done before committing sui
cide to see If It were possible for a man
to kill himself In that manner. Mr. Lit
tleton waa convinced that It was.
On leaving the jail Mr. Littleton aent
the following telegram to Thomaa R.
