Had No Assistance Either To
Plant Bomhs Or To
Commit Suicide
Mineola, July 0. Following a brief
sessiou of the inquest into the death
of Frank Holt here today, Coroner
Jones intimated ho will find that the
cnpitol tomb bomli planter and nsstiil
nut of J. 1'. Morgan committed suicide
unaided nnd without tho connivance of
anyone. '
Jerry O'liynti, tho aged guurd who
was on duly Tuesday night when Holt
ended his life, testified that he was now
satistieil that the "explosion" which
he heard and which he first thought
was a shot, wns really tho popping of
Holt 's skull as he struck the nIoiic Hug
ging. C. Cornell, nn undertaker who
took charge uf Unit's body also testi
fied that the wound in the head wus
not caused by a bullet, but from the
pri inner 's dive to tho floor from the
top of the cell tier.
The inquest was adjourned for n week
after this testimony had been taken.
When it is resumed the prisoners con
fined in Tier I) from which Holt dived,
will be examined by tho coroner. War
den Hulse uml Shorur Petit will also
be called ns witnesses. They nre now
on their vacations and their testimony
is desired before a formal verdict is
I eildered.
Ilespite the attitude of Coroner Jones
the county supervisors made it clear to
day that they will not drop their in
lestigniion, They are not satisfied with
the expbiuutions given of the circum
stances surrounding Bolt's denth and
will meet tomorrow to plan no lion to
be taken.
Guard O'ltyan strongly denied before
Coroner Jones that anyone suggested
that he permit Holt to commit suicide.
He assumed all responsibility for the
fact that the prisoner was able to take
his life. O'Kyuu explained that the
door to Holt ' cell wus open becnuse
the authorities fen red ho might nt
tempt suicide, and wanted to be nble to
rench him us soon ns possible. The
gunid resented suggestions that ho wns
either asleep or drunk.
"I had belli iifrnid to sleep," said
O'Uyiin, "fur fenr Holt would kill me.
And 1 wrsu't drunk. I hud only one
gins of Lei r thnt night."
1 1 'li vim leiteruted his story of hear
ing a noise nt the far end of the tier
of cells while he was standing guurd
near Holt's door. J l said he went
to investigate this noise and while he
was awai Holt scaled the tier and
plunged down headfirst to the floor.

maiiy s reply to the last Ainericnn tiotn
in protest, against the submarine wnr-
faie was in the hands of the Aiucricuii
embassy here today.
The new note wns handed to Ambas
sador Geratd by the foreign office lust
night. Embassy clerks were engaged in
translating and putting the communica
tion into code for transmission to Wash
ington. Owing to the extended transla
tion and careful ending, thn time of
the receipt of the note in W'asliinglou
cannot be forecasted.

It. is believed here that new points

Il Is understood Germany's amwer,
while not conceding anything, is friend
ly in tone. The Ainericnn rejoinder
will, of course, be similarly expressed.
But while the matter may perhaps gn

No "Secret" Diplomacy.

W nsliiiigii.n, July IL Although the

suggestion of "secret diplomacy"
w lien u recent story appealed to tho
efr.'. t that unofficial negotiations wcro
in progress with liet'tnuity to aid her in
framing nn answer to the latest Amer

definite understanding between them, it
was confidentially listened by otlicinl.l

The German reply, it is admitted, i,1
unsatisfactory. It would have been
satisfactory but for the publication of
the story of the preliminary negotia
tion. Nobody referred to these iicgotift-
(uutiuul on I'a.'e Five.)
