Tneaday moraing of this week, when
a eocDie ol lured ater in tne employ
of E. T. Graham, who lives near
Crestoa, diecovered the lifeleas body
of an aakaown Toonar man in an old
deeerted aonae en one of Mr. Graham's
farams three and a-half miles northeast
of Hamphrey, on what is known as
the old Graham place, and jadjring
from the condition of the body and
what little has developed in the in
vestigation since, it seems a certainty
that the strange man was foully mur
dered. The old house, which is a small
three room one, has been occupied for
some time and Sir. Graham has used it
as a sort of granary and depositary for
tools, etc, which were usually left at
A small heating stove was set up in
the hoase which was used by the hired
mea to warm by when they were at
tending to the stock which Mr. Gra
ham usually kept on the premises.
The murder no donbt occurred some
time between seven o'clock Monday
evening and nine o'clock Tuesday
moraing, as workmen were at the
aoase as late as seven o'clock next
moraiag whea the hired men discov
ered the body. The body was lying
in the southwest room of the house
on some wheat, and the portion which
it was lying indicated that it had been
rlaced there after death occurred.
Coroner Metz was notified, and in
company with A. B. T. Anselme,
want oat to the scene of the tragedy.
A jury composed of the following
gantlemaa was empaneled : J. W. Ben
der, A. R. T. Anaelme, August Prang,
John Cooper, Ira Scealp and H. Heck
or, and an inquest was held in the
The body was taken to the front room
and the clothing removed. A hole just
above the left eye indicated that the
dead man had been snot with a 32-cal-iber
revolver, the bullet penetrating
the brain and lodging in the back of
No other marks of violence were
found. A purse containing $7.50 in
silver and a plain gold ring, a pair of
placers, a pair of new leather gloves,
a pocket comb, a pencil and several
cards upon which were fancy penman
ship drawings and writings, were
foaad in the dead man's pockets. A
lip of paper was also found upon
which was written in fancy penman
ship, the name "Mr. W. O'Brien."
On one of the cards appeared the
picture of a skull and cross bones.
Under the skull and cross bones was
written the names, 'Harry Rogers"
and "K. Kid." On the opposite side
of this card was a picture of a man
holding a revolver in one of his hands
aad his eyas covered with a mask to
a burglar. Uader the stove

aight to rob Palmateer's store on the
opposite side of the street from the
Wagner ft rjgleatoa store. Foot
prints on the floor of the cellar aad
the marks in the lime oa the wall of
the cellar, showed that a peraoa had
crawled throagh a small cellar win
dow in the front ead of the store, bat
the trap door leading to the main floor
being bolted and barred ao atroaglv,
the robber was undoubtedly aaaUe
to gain entrance to the store.
Mr, Wagner, A, H. Aastion, J. H.
Evaaa. nanL E. C Wagner were over
from Creaton Wedaasday to view the
remains of the dead man to determine
whether or not they had ever seen
him before, and while none of the
gentlemen remembered having seen
the stranger, they believed their visit
here was the cause of establishing one
fact. That is, the dead man was im
plicated in th robbery at Creston.and
that he was the oae wno entered the
cellar of the Palmateer store. They
discovered white lime on tne soles of
the man's shoes and also on his
trousers legs, a point which had been
overlooked by others. This little bit
of evidence may not have a great deal
of weight, however, ae-on the floor of
the hoase where the man was found,
considerable lime, wnich had fallen
from the wrecked walls and ceiling
was scattered around quite profaselv

Coaaty Attorney TaUham and Dep
unty Sheriff Lachnit came np from Co
lumbus Wednesday morning un the
freight, and Attorney Tsitaam imme
diately caused a poet mortem exam
ination of the dead man's head.
Coroner Metz conducted the examina
tion which resulted in finding a 32-cal-iber
bullet in the back of the head.
In the forenoon in company with
Supervisor Bender and the Democrat
editor. Attorney Taihaia and Deputy
Sheriff Lachnit went out to the scene
of the tragedy to see if they could
discover anything which would throw
light upon the mystery. The hoase,
and the permisea for several rods
around were thoroughly searched in
an endeavor to find something that
would furnish a clue. Nothing was
found of any importance, however, ex
cept a copy of the Omaha Daily Bee
of Monday evening. March 2, which
the dead man or his murderers had
left there. The importance attached
to the paper is that it established
the fact that the dead man or his
murderers came to the vicinity of the
tragedy on the evening Northwestern
train, presumably from Omaha, as the
paper bore the stamp of the Union
station news stand in Omaha, aad it
is certain that it mast have been pur
chased in Omaha or oa the train,
otherwise it could not possibly have
been found where it was found.
The investigatiag party could not
help being impressed with the loneli
ness of the surroundings. The house
is situated in such a place that it can
not be seea easily from any of the
neighboring houses, and the fact that
it is so close to the railroad track,
makes it a place where one would
naturally expect crime to be commit
ted. Creaton was visited ia the hope
of developing somethiag, but noth
ing was foand there that had any bear
ing on the case.
It is the theory of the Democrat ed
itor that the dead maa with oae or
two companions came into Creaton
Monday evening on the Northwestern
passe ngrT from the east, huag around
there until a late hoar, robbed Wag
ner ft Eggleston's hardware store aad
attempted the other robbery, went to
the deserted house on the Graham
place to divide their spoils, became in
volved in a quarrel with the result
that this more unfortunate one had
his light put out by the rervolver.
Any theory different from this will
be gladly received from but one and
we promise that the same will receive
due consideration by everybody who
baa heard of this senauioaal affair.
A very pathetic featare of the case
is that siace the report of the tragedy
has beam pabiiahed in the daily papers,
Coroner Metz and Marshal
been receiving letters
who have missing boys, from pretty
aear all parts of the country asking
for information in an ead savor to find
out whether or not this murdered maa
is their son. A picture was received
from Minneapolis, Mian, bat it failed

disagreement in the jury. The jury
was brought before Judge Adams, who
asked the cause for the long delay.
He was told that eleven jurors had
agreed, hut the twelfth stood alome.
The court admoaished the lone juror
that the expease of a aew trial should
not be incurred because of him failing
to agree with the majority of the jur
ors. A precedent was quoted showing
that the majority of the jurors should
decide the case before them and a
verdict be rendered accordingly. The
jury was told to go back aad poll its
vote once more. Soon after the jury

TRADE REVIEW FOR THE WEEK.
Dun's Reports Show Little Change in
New York. March 26. R. G. Dun A
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says:
Little net change in trade conditions
is noted for the past week. Storms
and floods did much damage to prop
erty and threatened agricultural pros
pects at the start, but subsequently
the weather improved and the outlook
brightened. Spring trade is expand
ing, although still backward to some
extent and new labor controversies
have added to the number of unem
ployed, despite as amicable arrange
ment of the sheet and tin plate scale.
Building operations would be vigorous
if the employers and wage earners
could adjust differences. Inquiries
for structural material are not of pro
portion to new permits, which is prob
ably due to the fact that there is much
resumption of postponed work. Rail
way earnings in three weeks of March
are only L.4 per cent smaller than a
year ago and far in excess of any pre
ceding year. Failures this week num

of the two boxers were entirely differ
ent. Britt fought for the body most
of the time, while Corbett devoted his
attention to the head, face and jaw.
