This Is offered to supply a motive for purchasing the cyanide. Police Clinch Important Link in Chain of Murder Evidence Accused Pastor.

Clarence Virgil Thompson Richeson is to-night face to face with the indisputable evi- dence that he dined with Avis Linnell last Saturday, only few hours before she swallowed the fatal poison which, according to the police, he had given her.- This was; an important missing link, the detectives asserted, in the chain of evidence connecting the young clergyman with the most remarkable crime in the annals of New England. MODERN "SCARLET LETTER" TRAGEDY. That Richeson, a modern "Arthur Dimmesdale" of Hawthorne's "Scar-J let who is accused of the murder as well as betrayal of Miss nell, the pretty young choir singer, in giving her a deadly dose of cyanide of I potassium under the guise of a harmless medicine which would spare them' both a publication of their shame, is held to-night in a trap of circumstan- tial evidence. v Tho fact that the minister wished to hide beneath his cloth the leller which he should wear with the young woman he had long courted, and who believed herself soon to be his-wife would furnish a motive for 'the crime, but the unexpected announcement oMiis engagement to Miss Violot Edmands, an aristocratic and very wealthy young woman, gives a further and more moving reason why the poisoned one stood between himself and happiness and riches should be removed. Prisoner about six months. The young clergyman has not 'yet broken tho attitude, of silence he as- sumed at the time of arrest. He spent the day pacing his cell in the Charles street jail, and spoke only to Moses Grant "Edmands, his prospective father-in-law, and Philip R. Dunbar, his attorney. Miss Violet Edmands, the pros- pective bride, is still prostrated by the shock caused by the arrest of Richeson and is under the care of. two physicians. Miss Edmands's mothr-.r was' occupied to-day with the melan- choly duty of directing the return of the wedding gifts sent by friends from distant points. Mrs. Edmands Hints Alibi. Mrs. Ed'mands has refused to discuss the case with, newspaper representa- but declared to a neighbor to- day that the Rev. Mr. Richeson could not have been with Avis Linnell last Saturday, as he was. at her home. The wealth of Millionaire George F. Edmands' estate will be poured out to finance the defense of Mr. Richeson. George F. Edmands was the father of Moses Grand Edmands and grandfather of Miss Violet Edmands, whose mar- riage to Richeson was to have -takei place Ocotber .31. Moses Grant Ed mands said to-night that his faith was unshaken in the young clergyman ani intimated that the family by him until the last. The police say they are at a loss to understand why the Edmands familj assume this attitude, since it is nov shown by their secret investigation that Richeson spent several hours will Avis Linnell Saturday, October 14th the day she-swallowed enough cyanid of potassium to kill ten people. Victim's Last Words. A new by the'po- Jjee has told .the 'young choir singer's last words were: "I dined to- day with Mr. Richeson." The police assert further that they have founc the restaurant where Richeson and the girl dined. They have found a gir who saw them eating together, who recognized them and who talked with Miss LinnelU' This girl wttl be a most importani witness at the trial of Richeson ant the police would not to night revea' lier Identity. It was Intimated tha- Miss Linnell had confided to her a tragic secret she had jealously guard- ed from others. "While, the. police were laboring to complete their case Richeson's lawyer Philip R. the son of former Judge James R. Dunbar of the Massa- chusetts superior court, .was planning to fight for life. It is already intimated' that a plea of in- sanity wilr-.be .ma'de if the case ever conies to trial. Richeson Not Unbalanced Many people can be found who admit :hat Mr Richeson was a most eccen- tric-person, but there are none who express the opinion "that his mind was unbalanced at the .time this deed was committed. Dr. H.' M. Gardner, las performed, professional service for the clergyman, made- the following statement for'the I. N. S. to-day: "I have treated" Mr. Richeson for is a case of nerves. His While denouncing crime everyone must idmire the judgment of style and quality, if the thief who robbed Weeks Ande'r- :on's clothing and gents' furnishing shop at 116 E.

A The only medicine I have prescribed ,K Im, is what ls ordinarily pre- scribed in cases of nervous breakdown and his condition was due wholly to overwork. There is absolutely no trace of insanity about the man "Dr. Baldwin prescribed' for him at the Edwands home and from what I gathered the only medicine he gave him was for his appetite." Pastor a Lothario. Trailing the career of Richeson to- day the police found out many strange things about the theological .studen and hypnotic young preacher. It mainly a. story of girls, girls- career of a Lothario. Tlie fact that he was engaged to Linnell and Violet Edmands at same time is small circumstances in comparison with the stories of his Mormonlike propensities for engage- ments that come from other cities where ho had been a student and preacher. One of the most remarkable of these'" engagement stories comes from Kansas City. Mr. Richeson preached there an' a supply pastor in v the Budd Park Baptist church. He was engaged, ac- cording to the report to three girls there at the same time. They learned of it and they ail walked in to church- one day and sat in .the name seat, Richeson saw them. But his nerve stood him in good stead preached fervently about how motlVers should watch over their daughters. GirJs Confronted Him. When the scrvlse was over the en- gaged trio (lied up to the altar and right out before, the startled congre-! gation accused him of promising to marry all three of them. In polished, courteous phrases, the clergyman excused himself. He disappeared and' never stood in that pulpit again. Comes from the little village of Georgetown, near Haverhill, another engagement story and this time feminine trio figures. Richesi preached at a: revival sedvice there he paid some attention to reviylnp love in the hearts of some of" the feminine members of the flock. The Sheriff's Daughter. One of the girls that caught the alluring eye of the cavalier clergyman was Miss Alice F. Howe, the daughter. of a deputy sheriff. that -they became was reported encgaged. The preacher had boarded at the sheriff's house. He gave Miss Howe several presents, then it became known that he J was engaged to two other girls of thej town, one of whom was Miss Alfreda Chase, and the Howes banished him. Richeson rendered a bill for tl presents he had given Miss Howe and. her father retorted with a counter bill for a month's board and nursing tliaa he had required while receiving medH cal treatment. Miss Howe is a prettjL girl who is at present engaged as stenographer In a; State institution. May Be-Still Others.
