Chicago, Jan. 22. A local paper
If the story told by Robert Corbett, a
private detective who has been in this
city for a few weeks working on the
Holmes case, is true, H. H. Holmes is
not guilty of committing a single murder
Tne Pitzel murder case is now pend
ing in the Biipreme court of Pennsylva
nia, and will come up for a hearing with
in a few days, and the defense is making
a determined effort to secure the re
versal of the finding of the jury and
lower court on technical grounds. If
these fail, then the information gath
ered by the defense will be restored to,
and it is expected that they will be able
to prove beyond a doubt that the alleged
victim, Benjamin Pitzel, is alive and
living within a radius of 100 miles of the
city of Chicago, at the present time.
Corbett, who has been running down
the various stories charging Holmes
with murder in Chicago, claims to have
evidence showing that H. H. Holmes
did not commit a single murder in the
of Chicago, and that Holmes' confession
regarding the dearti of Nannie Williams
is substantially correct.
The girl was beyond a doubt, killed on
July 6, at the flat occupied by Holmes
-and Minnie Williams, at 1220 Wright
wood ayenue. The body was taken to
the Castle and burned. The skull found
by the police at the Castle was that of
Nannie Williams, aB the mark and frac
Corbett also makes the following state
ment: "That Minnie Williams is alive and
has been seen on streets of this city
within the past two weeks; that Eniiline
Cigrande is alive and is now living in
Iowa; that Julia Connors and her
daughter Pearl are alive and at present
living in Michigan, and that Holmes
will be able to prove a complete alibi in
regard to the murder of Howard Pitzel.
"Holmes waB a peculiar man, and his
relations witft various young women was
the cause of his present predicament"

Steps Taken by it to Prevent Oregon
Lawyers Practicing; In the District.
South Bend, Jan. 22. The Pacific
county bar has taken steps to prevent
Oregon lawyers from practicing in the su
perior court in this district, which com
prises Pacific, Wahkiakum and Lewis
counties. The last legislature passed a
law allowing only those lawyers from
other states to pratice in Washington
courts whose states granted the same
privileges to Washington lawyers. It
appears that Oregon laws do not permit
lawyers resident in this state to practice
there. Astoria lawyers particularly have
a large number of clients in this and
Wahkiakum counties, and the enforce-
, ment of the law will affect their business
There is no market here for steel heads
at present. Sturgeon, however brings 4

disease, which attacks him so severely
about once a year that he becomes crazy,
and it is supposed that he had another
attack, and while in a demented condi
tion committed the burglary. Summer
set served a terra in the state prison,
and after his i,-.ase the effect of his
disease was discovered.
ESCCESION DUCLARED OFF.
Proposed Pleasure Trip to Turkey Bas
Chicago, Jan. 22. Maurice Kosman
ski, western paBsengsr agent of the Com
pagnie Reale Trans-Atlantiqne, has re
ceived a cablegram from, the president of
the company at Paris instructing him to
cancel all engagements for the Mediter
ranean trip for the steamer La Touraine,
leaving New York, February 4. The
liability of the excursionists to insult or
attack by the Turks determined the
company to abandon the proposed trip.
Two Sundered Xourists Disappointed.
New York, Jan'. 22. Two hundred
tourists, who had booked to visit Turkey
and the east on a special excursion
aboard the French liner La Touraine,
scheduled to sail from New York, Feb
ruary 4, were notified today that the
trip is off :
The acute condition of affairs in Tur
key and the uncertainty of affording ade
quate protection to . travelers in the
domain of the sultan, caused the aband
onment of the tour. The pleasure trip
for the steamship Friesland, which was
scheduled to sail for the same territory
on January 29, was given up for the
