Dm Moines, Ia April 5. The house
passed the committee's substitute for
the Russell anti-trust bill with but one
opposing vote. The bill is fashioned
after the Missouri law, with sufficient
changing in it to avoid that statute's le
gal defect. There was little objection
to it until the fifth section was reached,
which provide that parties buying
property of a trust or combination, or
their agents shall not be held liable in
in an action to recover. A motion was
made to refer the bill to the judiciary
committee for an opinion na to the val

the measure declared this particulfj

W. C. C'ronit'ter, a peddler, as brut
ally mirdered last evening in the west
era part of this county. The acene of
the crime was a farmhouse, on hat is
known as the Tom Murray farm, situat
ed in Chicago precinct, this county,
about six miles from illkhorn station.
The house is occupied by Mrs. Reed
a ho sub rented a part of the dwelling
to Charles Stroebel, when Cronister
was not on the road disposing of his
wares he boarded at Mrs. Read's.
About 9 o'clock last night Cronister
and Mrs. lie J were sitting at the table
in the kitchen and Cronister was en
gaged in figuring on some accounts.
Suddenly Mrs. Reed heard a loud re
port and a crashing of glass and mw
Cronister fall over in his chair with
blood oozing from his head.
Strobe! aas sitting with his wife and
child iu an adjoining room. The door
wasopen and oil hearing the report they
rushed into the room. The peddler was
dead and must have been instantly kill
ed. Without stopping to examine the
body the Kt rubles and Mrs. Reed ran
from the house to tl.e residence of
farmer named Tunnison, who owns the
Reed farm. From' t hence thev went to

O.W. A Ibro, Daniel Clifton and J. C
It was nearly 11 o'lix-k when they
arrived at the Iteed farm. They looked
through the kitchen window and saw
Cronister still in a reclining position in
hisi'hair. He had evidently died with
out a struggle. They entered and re
moved the liody lo a sofa.
The assassin had evidently used a
shot gun, and the charge of bird shot
had struck Cronister immediately be
hind the left ear.
The jteddler's wagon was standing in
front of the house and the horses were
hitched in the stable. The lamp was still
burning on the table. No Irtu-e nf the
murderer wng to be found.
The north window was shattered bv
the shot, which hail been lired through
t he glaas. ...
The people caice to Omaha this morn
ing and notified Chief Kenvey Sheriff
Boyd, Coroner Hnrringan and County
Attorney Mahoncy of the crime. Mr.
Mahoney, Dr. Harrigan, his deputy Dr.
McMonignl nud Deputy Sheriff Greta
accompanied them to the "arm.
At first no particular person could be
suspected of the murder and no motive
could be assigned for the perpetration of
the crime. - The m urderer had walked up
to the window, fired the fatal shot and
fled before any of . the inmate of the
hous could catch a glimse of hi in. - .
Cronister bought hi goods of the W.
R. Bennett company, at Fifteenth and
Capitol avenue, in'thiscityJ The last
time he was in the store was last Tues
day, when he bought a bill of goods.
He is described as a heavy set man, of
medium height and apparently about .V)
years of age. He had no family, so far
at can be ascertained. IVorlit-HeruM.
Following up Hie Munlrr.
When W. C. Connyster, the peddler,
was shot Sunday night st Mrs. Reed's
home at Klkhorn, it was reiiorted that
he had a wife and family in that city.
The person with whom he dealt
knew of no such fsmilv, however, and
Mrr. R ied story that he was a widower
and had two children in Illinois was ac
But at Albright the story of the trag
edy excited lively interest. Counyster
was known there and the neighbors of a
Mrs. Millner, who has lived there for
about a year, regarded him aa her hus
band. Mrs. Millner's maiden name was
Brown, and her brother, George Brown,
has lived next door. ' She snd Millner
quarrelled about eight months ago and
he deserted her; leaving her with three
children to support.' One of the child
ren ha been born since.
Not long after Millner left Connysten,
who seems to have known the wife,
drifted along that way and took the ab
sent husbsnd's place at the head of th
household,' and was said to have wedded
Mrs. Millner. Some three or four
months sgo be too quart lied with the
woman and then be went to Mrs. Reed's.
Mrs. Millner left her cottage this
morning and with her children started
up the track for South Omaha.
Brown, Mrs. Millner's brother, disap
peared Sunday night and has not been
aesn since. The coincidence sets the
neighbors to talking.
Among aom of thorn there is a story
thst Connystor is the fsther of the baby
and that ah deserted it, but as neither
Brown nor Mrs. Millner could be ftund
today, their statement of th relation
of th couple and as to. whether or not
Mrs. Milmer waa the peddler's wife can
not be had.
Somewhat different veision iathat
given by Gas Inspector Gilbert, who
says that Coonyster has a wife who lives
naf Albright. They were married
about two years ago. The briile was a
widow with three children. Her first
husband's name was Millner, and she
has been known by that nam sine hr

curred a yeer ago. During their mar

body of Mr. Barnwell was recovered it
