The coroner's physician claims that the body could not have been brought here in a trunk from another city, as confessed to by Holmes, for the reason that it was stiff, und a body once bent does not again become rigid. Furthermore If It had been la tho trunk It would have shown murks of where It hud been doubled up, and no such marks were upon the body. The theory Is advanced that the body found was really thut of Pltzel, and not of nny one else. As a basis for this theory It Is argued that Pltzel and the other conspirators plotted to disfigure the former by burning the face with some chemical und then culling In a phy sician to prescribe for his injuries. A body was then to be procured und simi larly disfigured as Pltzel was, and then it was to be given out that the man had died of his injuries, and It wus trusted thut the attending physician would not discover the fraud, and would give a certificate of death in accordance with the facts told by the conspirators. ' The Various Theories. It is supposed that Pltezl had his fel low conspirators administer chloroform to him so that he would not feel the pain of the burns when they were Inflicted, and that he was either given un over dose and died from the effects or was killed while unconscious by his treach erous friends. Another theory in sup port of the belief is that a man resem bling Pltzel was decoyed to the room, chloroformed and killed, and his face disfigured so us to render Identification more difficult. Another suspicious circumstance, as viewed by the detectives, is that Mrs. Pltzel wus home "on u visit about a month ago to her parents in Illinois and she said nothing about the death of her husband. In the neighborhood of Thirteenth nnd Callowhill streets, no body could be found today who remem bered or knew unythlng about Pltzel.

Engineer Freeman, of the west bound train, was badly injured, and his fireman, George Smith, had a leg broken while Jumping from the en gine.

By the United Tress. , Washington, Nov. 18. Secretary Oresham says he has heard nothing of ficial of the rumored atrocities In Asi atic Turkey, whereby It was claimed 10,000 Christians, men, women and chil dren, were massacred In cold blood by Armenian unbelievers, and ho does not think they are trustworthy. The United States consulate at Slvas Is but L'."0 miles from Bltlls, and our agency at TrebIzor.de Is only 2i'0 miles away. It Is thought most Improbable that such widespread butchery could occur without these consular ofilclnls hearing of it and reporting upon It. one county did the new act cause direc tors to shorten the school term and re duce the teachers' wages. Dr. Sehaefer declares there is no Justification for this short sighted policy In view of the fact that the legislature added half a million to the annual appropriation. Mauuul training in the school is rec ommended and reference is made to the improved school architecture. An ex tension of the high school system to the townships districts is recommended; as Is also a law authorizing directors to use a portion of the annual appropriation for the purpose of establishing und maintaining school libraries. Training the children for citizenship and Instilling Into them a love of our country Is urged by Dr. Schuefer, who commends the patriotic orders for caus ing Slum and Stripes to bo displayed on school buildings. He says, however, that the girls and boys should be taught what the flag stands for. One of the dangers to the school sys tem upon which the report dwells Is the peril of sectarianism. He says "It Is eleurly not the function of the public schools to give sectarian Instruction. Tho genius of our state and national constitutions demands in all schools supported by taxation, the separation nnmelv, to employ only teachers or their own religious faith or political party or secret society, cannot be too strongly condemned." The statistical summary shows the number of school districts in the state to be 2,413; number of schools, 24,541; number of graded schools, 12,869; num ber of superintendents, 123; number ctf male teachers, 8,464; number of female teachers, 17,777; whole number of teach ers, 26,241; average sulurles of male teachers per month, $44.16; averuge sal aries of female teachers per month, (33.05; average length of school term In months, 8; numburs of pupils, 1,010,071); average number of pupils, 759,560; cost of school houses, purchasing building, renting, etc., $3,396,818.13; teachers' wages, tN8,998,343.66; cost of school text books, $1,215,375.73; cost of school sup plies other than text books, Including maps, globes, etc., not including Phila delphia, $559,233.42; fuel, contingencies, fees of collectors and all Other expenses, $1,386,975.39; total expenditures, $18,586, 751.33; state appropriation for school year ending June, 1S93, $5,000,000; esti mated value of school property, not including Philadelphia, $42,679,5l'4.

In Messina, whore the srhocks were almost as violent as across the strult, the convicts in the penitentiary were panic stricken. Two hundred mutinied and tried to escape by overpowering the guards, but they were overpowered. 1 list Shock Most Violent. The earthquakes were felt in south ern Italy and Sicily. The first shock If. Messina was the most violent. It last ed twelve seconds, and was ucroin pnled with loud rumblings. The in habitants fled shrli-kiug with fright from their homes, und filled the streets with their clumor. The hospital, although but slightly dumuged, was shaken so violently thut many patients became hysterlcul und had to be removed. Most of tho ln habitunts decided to puss the night in the streets and open squares. After two hours the rumblings began again, und the former scenes were re enacted. Men and women run aimless ly in all directions. Hundreds dropped to their knees and prayed aloud for de-. llverance. I Today many streets are entirely de-1 sorted. Dozens of persons have taken I refuge on ships la tho hurbor. There have been six shocks In all. In Iteggio many houses are cracked and threaten to fall at any moment. The panic stricken inhabitants are camping In shelters erected by soldiers. Patrols distribute food and other neces saries. It Is known that six persons were killed und several injured In Bag nara, but details are wunting owing to the demoralization of the railroad and telegraph services.

Lmcrson Osborne Confesses Having As saulted Mrs. Jack, Whom He Left for DeuJ in a Hollow Log. By the United Tress. Shuron, Pu., Nov. IS. The mystery surrounding the recent assault on Mrs. John Jack, of Kilgore, has been partly solved by the confession of Kmerson Osborne, a prominent member of the Sandy Lake United Presbyterian church. Mrs. Jack, about three weeks ugo, disappeared from her home und und wus found three days later In u hollow log half deud. She said she had attempted to take her own life by beating her head with a stone. This did not satisfy the authorities and they arrested Osborne. Yesterday he broke down nnd confessed all, say ing he had made the assault, und, thinking ;Mrs. Jack (was duUt 'hud placed her In the log to cover up his crime. Osborne Is a brother-in-law of Mr.. Jack, ami. It Is alleged, she Is making I every effort to shield him.

After divine sei- for championship honors. The interest which base ball arouses in any city is based absolutely on local pride. The essence of value to a cham pionship Is entirely to the city to which the victorious club belongs. Experience has demonstrated that whenever and wherever territorial lights have been Invaded and rival dubs established, the clement of local pride Is absent and Interest In both de stroyed. It Is this which makes u re spect for territorial lights a principle which wo must uphold. Today thu future of base bull Is con fronted by a new condition, a condition which. In every particular, Is us harm ful and, in many respects, far more dangerous than open dishonesty or fla grant dissipation. That Is, treachery within the lines. Today ami for months past we have had men identified with professional base ball who, for years, have been the beneficiaries of the game, have received liberal compensation for the work they have done, earned their livelihood entirely and absolutely from the opportunities afforded them by clubs npd organizations operating under the national agreement, and we find und now know that these men, dur ing this time, have persistently been identifying themselves with schemes und combinations, the sole objects and sole purposes of which are to weaken and perhaps destroy the splendid fabric of our nutlunul game w hich it has taken years of effort, anxiety and large out lay of capital to construct.
