TWO AS COOL AS A CUCUMBER Reniarkable Composure of Ben- well's Alleged Assassin. FORMALLY HLLI) 1011 HIS I RIAL. Mrs lilrchell Still In The Ac- cused Mnn'g Uravudn ut the Hearing The JHimt Unconcerned Mon In Court. The Trial of Isaac NIAGARA FA us, Out, March 13 J R. Blrcholl was forma UT hold here last night by Magistrate Hill for the assizes at Wood stock in October on the charge o! murdering F C BenwellonFeb 17 last Mrs Birchell was remanded for eight days, and will re- mniTi in the custody of an officer at Baldwin's boarding house m thia village, where she has boon since her arrest, Birchell stepped off the Michigan Central tram handcuffed to an officer and smiled gaily at the waiting crowd. When brought into the court room he ap peared perfectly serene, perfectly uncon- cerned, nouchalnnt as It taking his seat m festive gathering He was well brushed, well combed and bright looking Over Kid Gloves. His indifferent demeanor is a study and a wonder to all who Bee him He smiled around at the reporters and officials nodded to some, looking straight out of hia p ei cmg black eyes without a particle of timidity The hiyidcuffa being removed, he quietly took off kid gloves, crossed his legs tipped back hin chair nnd waited for the proceedings to begin. He Seemed in Oood Spirits About half a dozen witnesses were sworn Most of the evidence was a i esume of th at token at the coroner's inquest. It rame from trainmen who knew Birchell and Benwell on ihat fatal trip to Princeton on the morning of 17 Coming back after poor Benwelt had boon left weltering in his blood in the lonely Blenhe 1m swamp, Bir chell bought from James Duffy, the news- paper agent, cigars, and one of Murk Twain's books, had Duffy sit down and smoke one of the cigars, and offered him a drink out of his pocket flask. Bir oholl Doomed iu Ihe best of spirits Hew evidence was introduced when George Phe- miijter, manager at Niagara Falls of the Great Northwestern Telegraph company, was sworn. Ho produced three telegi ams One was sent from Niagara Falls, Ont, at 7 44 p m Feb 17 It was addressed to Pelley, Stafford house, Buffalo, and read "Arrive Buffalo 9 o clock must remain there to-night" Signed Bastell. Fhemm- tef could not describe the sender He could not say it was Birchell In this telegram it is supposed BirchelPs name was misspelled by the operator A n other theory is that he misspe led know ingly Pelley told the United Press report er that he had never known Birchell to call himself Bastell Pelley was called and swore he did not recognize the hand- writing as that of Birchell. Another tele- giam was from New York, dated March 1, nnd was evidently from Pelley, though it no signature "Benwell not was all it said. Birchell Had Nothing to Say Thar nosed the testimony Magistrate Hill asked Birchell if he bad anything to say He whispered with hia lawyer a mo- ment, then said in a matter of fact way "No, I have nothing to say The next mo- ment he added with some emphasis "At this particular moment." His coolness was astonishing Magistrate Hill then held Birchell for trial The prisoner slipped his kid gloves on his dainty hands, his body- guard slipped the handcuffs over them and led him out through the crowd, the most unconcerned appearing man in all that throng A Sensation In Court. A sensation was created daring the after- noon when it was learned that James A Macdonald, of Toronto, nephew of Sir John Macdonald, and one of the most noted crim- inal lawyers of Canada, was present in behalf of Birchell To a reporter he said be had not yet taken hold of the case, but had been sent for by Birchell, and would in all probability be retained, Sympathy for the Wife lawyer Ives, of London, Out, Isidore F Hellmuth's law partner, conducted the case for the defense Mrs. Birchell, looking pale and weak, was brought into court at 9 O'clock, leaning on the ai ui of Chief Young Muu to mqu re into the expel i icy of consoli latiug tho various mumupalitits of the state islands Hi New ork haibor Ihe c nimiibdioii is tocousistof Andrew H, Green J 8 T btianabun Jriderick W Devoe, Calvoit aax Joan L Hamilton Johi F id state engineer, and ono person to bt) designated by tach of th following The um> or of New York thy mayor of Brooklyn and the boards of supervisors of "ttefctxhester, Queens, Kings and Rich moaid counties They are to MM ve without compensation, and their espouses are not to exceed 000, shull be ajpiopnuted bv the New York city board of estimate and apportionmeut The commission is to report to the legisla ture such a bill us they ina> deem necessary to carry out the plan outlined above Tho following bills have boon signed by the gov ruor Authorizing the Eiec trie railroad to opeiatu any portion of its luu by electricity instead of steam Amend the code of il procedure so as to pro vide foi the review of the committment of children on appeal The assembly has passed the supply bill The bill as reported appro- priated 000 000 was added iunk a total of 1U1 >00 Last year s bill went to the govu nor aj propriatmg Leach s ly I-oand CHICAGO March 13 Tlw body of Roland Leach the missing New York traveling sales- man, has been found underneath a scow in the rivei at the foot of Market street by the officei s who were dragging tbe river Tbe face was discolored und tbero was a black and blue spot beneath His gold ring wasou h sflngu In thopockelh were found a chtck for loom b2 Pamici house, his gold watch and chain, a pocketbook in winch rt as a 1 000-mile ticket, a mutch safe, a bunch of smill tags and a certifleat of accident m buruuce Ihe body was in good condition, aud identified by James Casey tbe tug man, ch infet Mi Zucker came to Chicago to IUOK for his miss ng Ihe Ohiu Ballot Box Scandal V> March 13 ballot box mvebtig ition committee which has not been m session foi several weeks will meet on Sat uiduy next whtn Col Sands, of Cincinnati will give testimony Col bands is expect- ed to t .stify that he heard that Goieruoj CampbdlJ, while a repres utative in con had called on President Cleveland ind requtsttd him to oave the Democratic leis buspeud dioeussiun on tho tariff bill 11 crdtr to allow Mi Campf ell to have his billjtbox bill pushed 51r K.urU the pri vaie secretary to Goverboi Foraker, testi IN SENA IE AND HOUSE.
