Remains of Boji Who Have Been Min

Hartford, Conn., July 29 The
three Quinan ohildrsn, who strayed
away from their home on Broad street,
this city, Thursday afternoon, have
been found, nnd all three are dead.
Chief of Police Bill gave orders this
morning that all cars about the depot
and tho freight yards bo thoroughly
eearehed." A few minutes nftsr 10
o'clock pol. -smen who had been search
ing cars in tue yard of the New York,
NewHsvenand Hartford railroad for'
about two hours same to a ca
boose from which sickeniug odors
came. They burst open the
door and the steneb, which bud beeu
strong before, became almost over
whelming. Keeping on at their work
of investigation the officers traced tho
smell to the closet which the traium-m
use as a clothes press, and breaking
open the door they found tbe throo
little bodies, naked and mangled by
' Freddip, the 4 year-old, lay at th
bottom. On him was Raymond, 9
years old, and on top of both was Leroy,
7 years old. Under the three bodies
wi re the fotr garments the boys wore
when they left home. At the autopsy
this afternoon nothing was found to
indicate Violence. The condition of
the lunjjs indicated death by suffoca
tion, and the ubeuc of effusion and
other marks about the neck precluded
tbe suspicion of strangulation.
The theory is that the little Mows
ran iuto tbe, car to bide from a pissing
policeman Thursday afternoon and that
the door of tbe elosat elosed and caught
thorn in with the spring lock. The
closet is fiv feet hiu, and its fl ier
space is 23 by 15 inches. It is
impossible that the little boys could
have lived long in such a confined
space, and the doetors tbink thoy be
came unconscious in about fifteen min
utes, and that they did uot live more
than fifty minutes after the door was
locked on them. It 1b supposed that
the three boys had taken off their
clothes to play going in swimmiug,
as that idea was in their minds when
thsy left homo.
