Who Killed Christopher riiihle ?
Coroner Drexel was summoned nt 0:30 :
yesterday to investigate the death of
n man who was found , with his throat
cnt , lying near tlio intersection of South
Twenty-fourth street and the Union Pa
cific track. The case proved to bo a mys
tery , which will only bo cleared up , if
over , by the most shrewd and careful
The coroner , accompanied by Ofllccr
Peter Mat/.a and a reporter of the HEE
drove out , shortly after the first notifica
tion had boon received , to the scene
of tlio tingcdy. The drive was over a
scries of hills and valleys , which made
thn trip anything but a pleasant ono.
The nodyof thu dead man was found ly
ing in tiio rear of the cottage of a Herman
by the name of John Millncr , a few
feet away from the railway track. Ho
was lying on his side , his head resting on
ono arm. For several feet around the
ground was soaked with blood , while
leading around the side of the house
for n distauco of about ten or
twelve feet was a trail of blood. A close
examination of the corpse showed that
almost beyond question the case was ono
of murder. There was a heavy gash ,
probably four or live inches in length ,
and two in depth , on the left side of the
neck , which must have caused death
almost instantaneously. In addition to
this there was a cut of about two inches
in length under the loft car- another
ono on the loft side of the chest , and still
another on the right arm , a few inches
above the elbow , on the inslilo. No ouo
npperacd to bo able to identify the dead
man , butit was pretty certain tlinthe was a
Gorman of perhaps U8 or 21 yearn of age ,
and that his name was lluhlo , as a bank
book , bearing the stamp of the Omaha
Savings Hank , was found in his pocket
with that name on it. lleyond that , and a
postal card bearing on the reverse side
the printed address of the "Anzolger dos
Westcus. " the German journal of St.
Louis , thcro were no papers on his per
son. Ho was attired neatly but plainly ,
in a suit of dark jeans , thu coat and vest
of which were open.
Tin : TIICUUY OP MUIIDER.
fr'As already intimated , every circum
stance connected with the case points to
the theory of murder. About a quarter
past 10 o'clock yesterday the occupants
of the Millncr house , near which the
body was found , were awakened by the
screaming of a Inan , who was evidently
struggling with an assailant. Milluer
dressed himself ns rapidly as possible
and went out doors , followed by his wife.
When tlio two reached the roar of the
yard they found the unfortunate man
lying on the ground with his throat cut ,
all lifo being extinct. Several other
German and Polish families in the neigh
borhood were aroused by the cries and
came out , but as soon as they discovered
that tlio man was dead they returned to
their homes. Milluer , as well ns the
other neighbors who were questioned
about the tillair , slates that there was no
ouo in the neighborhood when lie wont
out to investigate the cause of the
The fact that there are so many knife
cuts on the head anil body of the dead
man is prlnin facie evidence that ho'
was murdered. If the case was one of
suicide , llulilo would not have cut him
self in so many places. The circumstance
of the cuts on the arm and breast is prob-
'ably attributable to the fact that lluhlo ,
in attempting to ward off the attack of ]
the unknown assailant , throw up his arm >
to parry the thrusts. In fact , the horrible
manner in which the dead man is
chopped , shows that the struggle must
have been a terrilic ono. Tlio trail of
blood from tlio front to the back of the
houso. shows that the poor follow must
hnvo boon stabbed naar the front door ,
and then ran around to the back
door , where ho foil dead. Near
the casement of the side door
there is also a largo pool of blood ,
which makes it probable that Ruble cither
While still struggling with his assailant ,
g or immediately after the death-thrust
had boon received , tried to force his way
into the house. The wounds were pro
bably made with a razor or an exceed
ingly sharp knifo. A careful search of
the ground for many feet around failed
to disclose the instrument with which thu
deed had been committed. This circum
stance , too , militates strongly agaiu.st the
theory of suicide , for had Rtihlu killed
himself , the knife or raxor with
which he cut his throat would
hnvo been found by his sido.
Assuming then that Ruhlo was mur
dered , which is almost beyond the prcad-
vcnturoof a doubt the only thing possi
ble , the motive is tlio next thing to bo de
i termined. This at present , it would.
m Ecum , must rumniu a mystery , for the
most dllligent search has so far failed to
royoal any circumstances which will
throw light upon the matter. It was
thought , however , that Ruhlo was way
laid by tramps intent upon robbing , and
that , in defending himself , ho was killed.
There Is absolutely no clue to the porpo-
trutord of the deed.
After carefully making a preliminary
examination of the case , Coroner Drexel
removed the body to his olllcu. Hero
hundreds of curious persons pressed in
to view the remains , and it was not long
before one of the spectators , Fred Wirtli ,
proprietor of the City Hotel , identified
; the corpse ns that of a man who
* had boarded at his house for near-
f1 ly a year and a half. Mr. Wirth stated
i to n reporter for the IJm : thai Uuhlu was a
' " , Ypung man of about 1 years of age , and
> had ucen living in Omaha nearly two
* * years , Ho eamo hero from Havana ,
i where lie still has relatives living. Dur
ing his ijtay in Omaha ho has been doing
' oild jobs , part of the time driving a team.
At other times , ho has ( men engaged in
farm work , just outside the city. Ho was
X n frugal , economical young 111:111 : , and
'managed to save ui > considerable money ,
more than $000 , of which now stands to
Ids credit in the Omaha Saving ! ) bank ,
Lately ho lias been out of work , On Mou-
( ' ' day of this week , ho started to Lincoln ,
taaying that no thought ho could find cm-
f ploymtnt in that city. Yesterday ho
returned , but for some reason dhl not go
to the City hotel. Ho left his baggage at
the depot , and sauntered away seeming
to waut to avoid his friends. Motldug
was seen of him alive.
"Tho case is undoubtedly ono of iuur
< Uir. " said Mr. Wirth. "It is my opinion
that in returning from Lincoln ho fell in
with some rtilHans who iimtirincd thai ho
bail money on Ids person , and after ar
rival hero waylaid nml killed him. Of
coin-do Huhlo had homo enemies , but
, enc of them , I think , wore bitter
enough to have murdered him. Ho was

The second nnd principal witness was
John Milncr who lives near the railroad
track at the corner of Twenty.third street.
Ho testified : Went to bed at 8 o'clock on
Tuesday niffht and about two hours lat
er was awakened by some ono knocking
at tlio door. I went to the door and
opened it. A man who was standing be
fore the tloor rtaid , "For God's sake stop
my blood or I'll hnvo to die. " The ap
peal was made in the German
tongue. I stepped out.sldo and the man
staggered tip against the fence near by
and dropped dead. Other neighbors
uamo out and wo got a lamp and looked
around , but could see no ono. Wo found
a collar lying near the railroad .track.
Did not call the pollco because 1 wus
afraitl to leave the house. Did not notice
any place that looked as though it had

nature of the wound which had caused
the death of Hnhlo. The wound extended -
tended from the posterior border of the
neck through to thotraehon.cuUingall of
the structures , veins and tissues of the
throat. A man might hvo for a half
hour witli such a woumlt anil would oven
retain consciousness and bo able to talk
and walk for ten or lifteen minutes. The
wounds on thu head and arm had hecn
made with a very sharp instrumunt.
The coroner's jury then adjourned
until ' 10 o'clock this morning m order to
give District Attorney Kstullo time in
which to examine several theories that
have been advanced conerning the crime.
In preparing the body for burial yester
day the coroner found in ono of the
pockets a gold watclt anil l0 ! cents in
money. As yet no evidence has boon
secured that shows that Htihlu had any
companions when he returned to tlio city
Tuesday evening. He was not seen in
company with any ono , and the manner
of his death is still a profound mystery.
A VACANT C11A1U.
That Now liclng Warmed by liatul
A BEE reporter approached Mr. Lcavitt
liurulium , laud commissioner of the
Union Pacific , yesterday and [ said :
"Mr. Burnham , let mo ask you a per
sonal question. Have you resigned ? "
"I have not. But I'm going out. I
have been given to understand that they
wanted to run the land olllce a little dif
ferently , and 1 told thorn I could just as
readily retire on the lirstof Juno as not. "
"Who are they ! "
"Tho Boston people who arc interested
in matters. "
"W ho will succeed you ? "
"That I don't know. "
"When do you go ? "
"On tlio first of June. "
"What business will you then under
take * "
"I don't know , J shall take a needed
rest for some time , and then shall devote
some time to my personal interests. 1
have allowed them to sull'or a little from
attention here , I have been pretty regu
lar hero for the last eight years , not
taking as much as might bo termed
a six weeks' personal vacation. The gen-
gentlemen or whom I have snokcn hnvo
intimated to mo that they desired
tlio varied land interests of the
Union Pacific to bo aggregated
and looked after by a bureau. Beyond
that they do not express themselves.
Of course I did not oxpcot them to out
line their plans for the future. "
Mr. Burnliam then scouted the ridicu
lous use in which the word "resign" is
used when people are no longer wanted ,
and asserting mat corporations could lay
poonlc aside without being questioned as
well as anybody.
Ho then handed the reporter the follow
ing circular which explains itself :

Tlio Georgia Avenue Hohool.
The board of education hold a special
session at fi o'clock Tuesday afternoon
to confer with the architect of the pro
posed Georgia avenue school , with a view
of remodeling the plans in order to re
duce tlio cost of that structure. The
board has an appropriation of $20,000 for
this building and can only expend ? o.OOO
in oxccss of this amount , making a total
of2o,000. ! The plans for the building
were made a year ago and the increase
in the price of certain kinds of material
and thoi advance in the price of labor ,
makes it impossible for the building , as
planned , to bo constructed within the
prescribed limit , It is proposed by the
board to substitute n shingle roof for the
slate rno contemplated in the original
plan , thus saving about ? . )00 , and to re
duce the amount of stone work about
§ 1,500 , making a total reduction of $2,000.
The architect will probably bo instructed
to maku these changes before the new
bids are advertised for.
