12 LAST OF A GOOD DOG. Scaly Pete Goes to the Land Where Clawiess Cats Abound. WAS A SPORT IN HIS DAY. His Brindle Hide Bore the Scars of Many a Fierce En counter. "Scaly Pete," a resident bull terrier of the Butter-street Market, has passed to that country where clawiess cats are as plenti ful aa leaves in Yallombrosa, and whore his happy spook can worry them all day without risk of a scratch. Pete was a good type of the market dog. He had been a tighter in his youth, and his brindle hide bore the scars of many a tierce encounter. Tough citizens had wagered their sesterces upon his prowess, his vigor and his dodgi ness, and lie had claimed the proud dis tinction of being the premier bone breaker of his day and generation. But the life of a fighting dog is a wearing one, and as the pugilist retires from tho ring to keep a sa loon, so Pete abandoned the grim, earnest tussle in the pit for the milder and harm less occupation of killing rats against time. Luxury finally got the better ...

4 TIGHTER GROWS THE CHAIN AROUND DURRANT More Evidence Against Him Found in the Church. MISS LAMONT'S BOOKS. Hair Believed to Be His Sticking to the Murdered Girl's Waist. HAD A WEAKNESS FOR WOMEN. Damaging Evidence Given at the Coroner's Inquest— His Mother's Appeal. DURRANT'S WRITING. Like That Which Was on the Paper That Wrapped the Rings. Clouds are gathering black and fast around Theodore Durrant. When he was arrested he was suspected of the crime, now there are few who do not believe him guilty of murdering the two pure and blameless maidens in the church that will never De sacred again. The evidence against him that was brought to light yesterday is considered conclusive by the police. Three girls had testified that on the day Blanche Lamont had disappeared they saw Durrant with her late in the afternoon, and they further testified that she was carrying her schoolbooks at the time. The books were found in the loft of the church yesterday, and the dead girl's shoes, hat and gl...

member. I have seen young ladies come in of a Saturday afternoon with flowers to decorate with. The rear door was prob blv open and tliey would get in that way. I "frequently found the rear door open. When that "happened I always supposed the pastor was in the church. Q —When did you see Durrant last? A.— I saw Durrani about 4 o'clock last Friday afternoon at the ferries. 1 asked him what he was doing. He said he had been there all the afternoon and that he had a clew to the disappearance of Miss Blanche Lamont. He said it was rumored that she would leave that afternoon to visit some friends in the country and he was on the lookout for her. He told me that the detective employed by Mr. Noble did not seem very efficient. In the first place he would not do anything until a fee of $50 was paid him. Durrant thought that was not fair because the offi cer was getting $8 a day from the Govern ment. Next Durrant told me that when the officer got the money he asked a few simple questions. "H...

1 DOUBLE MURDER C. attuned from Fifth Page, place and under circumstances that he i does not wish to disclose as it would not be ; a credit to him. The evidence so far as I have read is purely circumstantial and while that is considered very strong in j many instances, is evidence that should be closely examined and fortified. I think also that the officers should look carefully and see if there is not some one else who has had a hand in the cases. As to the disturbed sleep mentioned in the papers i this morning I do not attach much im portance to that. Hearing about the mur ders all day no wonder he was disturbed in his sleep," John Curtinof the Curtin agency said : "I have not formed any theory about these crimes, but am confident from what I have read and from conversations I have had with officers that Durrant is the guilty man. What can have been his motive? Possibly the Williams girl knew more than he wanted her to know about the disap pearance of the Lamont girl and he con cl...
