with an axe, and who was shot by Mr.
Coates in self-defense, but not seriously

Aiumit to Tell SlnuiKe Tiito.
On the night of May IS, Mrs. V. II.
Klensmlro disappeared from her home
in Holton, Kan,, and until Sunday her
whoroatamts were not known. Her
iKMly was found burled in a dlteh on
her husliund's farm one mile north of
Holton. The discovery was mnde by
the oldest daughter, who had been
searching over the place for some evi
dences of her mother's body in the
belief that foul piny had been the cause
of the disappearance.
The gully in which the Ixidy was ex
humed is an open Held on high ground.
Appearances indicate that the body
was thrown into the dlteh without any
excavating, and simply covered over
with dirt to a depth of two or three
feet. On top of this was piled a heap
of hedge brush, which had recently
been piled near. The grave was reason
ably well concealed and would not have
attracted ordinary attention. Marks
of a heavy blow were found.
After his wife's disappearance, Kiens
mire told his children that he and his
wife hud quarellcd during the night
and that she had left home and prob
ably had gone to some friends in the
north pari of the county.
The children appeared to accept tills
explanation and made no further in
quiry. Some days later Klensmlro
told his children that he had received
a telegram from Tcvns stating that his
wife had the yellow fever and that hu
would leave that day to take euro of
her, saying that if she died he would
bury her remains there. He refused to
hIiow the children the telegram.
Thev later learned he had not re
ceived a telegram. Then his daughter
began the search of the farm.
Detectives wore placed on the ease
and Klensmlro was arrested at Kansas
City, Kan., and was taken to Topeka.
He declares his wife committed suicide
and that lie burled the body because
he feared the disgrace. It is also be
lieved Klensmlro murdered a brother-in-law
in 18U'J in order to secure insur
ance money, and he may have to ans
wer to both charges.
DUTIES ABOUT FINISHED
I'uhi'M lime l.lttlo Left to Do In China
l'liiu Indemnity Payment.
China's uncondltoinal acceptance of
of 150,000,000 as the indemnity to bo
paid the powers has caused great satis
faction among the foreign ministers at
Pekin, as it only leaves, practically, u
few minor details to complete the ne
gotiations. The phrase in the joint
note "to the satisfaction of the pow
ers,'' may cause some delay in the evac
uation of China, as the ministers fail
to see how China can guarantee pay
ment, as all the ministers believe it
would lie a mistake to have a large
body of foreign otlicials collecting rev
enue. Were revenue thus collected
over S.000 ofllcials would be required
and the aggregate salariesof these men
would be very large and amount to
more than the ordinary Chinese
The majority of the ministers now
favor raising the customs to 10 per
cent and taking 5,000.000 taels yearly
from the likin tax. Tills method
would give, after the payment of inter
est on the foreign debts now existing,
about ail, 000,000 taels a year. The
ministers would agree to this system if
China will discontinue the collection
of all likin duties on foreign goods.
