15 SUICIDE l!l JAIL
Holt Is Found With
His Skull Fractured.
CONFUSION FOLLOWS AGT
Stories of Jail Officials Differ
as to Details.
LONG FALL IS REPORTED
Keeper Declares Prisoner Was Unusually-
Cheerful Early In Even
ing; Letter Left Bidding Good
Bye to His Family.
MINEOLA, N. T., July 6. Frank Holt,
the Cornell University professor -who
shot J. P. Morgan in his home near
Glen Cove, last Saturday, committed
suicide in the jail here tonight.
While several of the jail authorities
declared that Holt killed himself by
climbing through the opening at the
top of his cell door and then plunging
to the narrow court below. Holt's
keeper said he was positive that the
prisoner was killed in his own cell,
where he said he found the body.
Prisoner's Skull Fractured.
There were many conflicting reports
as to the manner in which Holt met
his death, but it was definitely estab
lished through Dr. Cleghorn. the jail
physician, that Holt died of a frac
Several of those about the jail said
they heard an explosion, the report
coming from Holt's cell. This noise. It
was believed, was due through the fall
ing of boards from the top oC the cell.
Jeremiah O'Ryan, the keeper who
was detailed to watch Holt, said he
was 15 feet away from the cell when
he heard a loud report. He looked in
the direction of the cell, but it was
dark. Entering, he found Holt's body
in a pool of blood in the corner.
Kirltcnirat Followa Noise.
-The excitement that followed the
noiae brought Warden Hulse and other
jail authorities to the scene. District
Attorney Smith and Dr. Cleghorn, to
gether with several constables, were
summoned and immediately began an
Dr. Cleghorn denied a report that
Holt had killed himself by chewing a
percussion cap. He repeated that death
was caused by a fracture at the top
of the skulL An explosion, which would
have blown his head off, would have
followed an attempt by Holt to chew
a percussion cap, the physician said.
A thorough examination of Holt's
cell failed to disclose, according to the
jail authorities, any weapon or imple
ments of any kind which Holt could
have used to kill himself.

Coroner Jones, after viewing the
"Undoubtedly a suicide, and un
doubtedly the man jumped."
The body was taken to the morgue
in Hempstead, where Dr. Cleghorn was
prepared immediately to perform an
The autopsy is expected to disprove
a report current here immediately after
the finding of Holt's body that he had
been killed from the outside. This was
vnly one of a number of reports reach
CFs the authorities.
Keeper O'Ryan declared that Holt
appeared unusually cheerful early in
the evening. He couldn't understand
why Holt should write a letter, which
was found after his death, in which
Holt addressed presumably his wife and
children as follows:
"My Dears I mucst write to you
once more. .The more I think about
it. the more I see tlie utter uselessness
of living under these circumstances.
Bring up the dear babies in fear of
God and man. Good-bye, my sweet.
Cell Keeper In 1ncertnln.
An evidence of the great confusion
which followed the report and the
finding of Holt's body was a second
statement by Keeper O'Ryan to the ef
fect that he was not sure whether
, Holt's body was found in his cell or
in the corridor.
This tended to strengthen the theory
of District Attorney Smith and Warden
Hulse that Holt killed himself by jump
ing from the top of his cell into the
court below and that while doing so
he had dislodged a couple of boards.
which fell to the floor with a loud re
Holt earlier in the day had admitted
to detectives that he had not told the
truth when he said he made the Cap
itol bomb out of sulphuric acid and
match heads, and said also that he did
not tell the truth about his movements
la Washington and New York.
dK pinH sSuiprrofl
He made these admissions when con
fronted by evidence tending to show
that he made the Capitol bomb in a
bungalow which he rented here about
ten days ago. The admissions followed
the positive identification by Lewis Ott
of Holt as the man wbo had rented the
bungalow. Ott said he found numerous
bottles with corks punctured in the
center, small vials and pictures of a
dozen public buildings throughout the
country, three of which were marked.
Frank McKahill, a local constable,
who accompanied the detectives in the
search of the bungalow, said that the
marked buildings were the New York
Public Library and the Capitol build
ings at Albany, N. Y. and Uarrisburg.

Whether Mr. Beats put his faith in
the old maritime tradition about rain
bows or whether he made the forecast
on strictly scientific data it doesn't
matter, but the significant fact remains
that Portland was visited by two beau

fair weather is predicted for today.
There were two generous showers
yesterday. The first fell at 4:10 to 4:26
P. M. and for the benefit of statistical
fans, it was heaviest between 4:19 and
4:i2. During these three minutes .09

The second shower began at 5:15
o'clock and ended at 5:32. for a total

The rainbows which followed were
beautiful and distinct and stretched
practically entirely across ' the sky.
They were the objects of much com

Critical Aspect of Negotia

WASHINGTON. July C. Germany has
submitted Informally to the United
States through Ambassador Gerard in
Berlin, a tentative draft of its reply
to the note of June 9, which asked for
assurances that American rights on the
high seas would not be violated further
by German submarine commanders.
After careful examination of the con
tents of the proposed note as outlined
by Ambassador Gerard, which coincides
with Berlin press dispatches of the
last few days, high officials practically
are agreed that the United States can
not, without sacrificing important neu
tral rights, express its approval of the
German proposals in their present
Opinion Mot to Be Eraift
The draft mas shown to Ambassa
dor Gerard with the idea of elicit
ing from him an expression of opinion,
and he promptly asked for Instruc
tions from Washington as to whether
the United States could make conces
sions. rresldnt Wilson has been ad
vised of the situation In several long
messages sent to his Summer residence
at Cornish, N. H., and the impression
obtained tonight from reliable quarters
was that the American Government
prooably would Instruct -its Am. u -
dor within a day or two to decline to
express any view until after the formal
riply Is delivered to him.
Just what Germany proposed has not
been officially divulged. Secretary
Lansing today took the position that it
would not be proper for him to dis
close Germany's position as informally
reported by Mr. Gerard without au
thorization from the Berlin govern
ment Conditional Annan area Proposed.
From Berlin dispatches and authori
tative sources here, it is learned, how.
ever, that the note as drafted by the
German foreign office, with Emperor
William's subsequent approval would
give assurances that Americans might
travel with safety on the high seas
