The Dead Hotly of a Lcnvcitworth
Citizen Found at St. Panl.
ST. PAUL , Minn. , Sept. 21. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKK.I A case which has the ap
pearance of being a murder was developed
last night In the afternoon some workmen
llshod a "floater" out of the canal at the
Washburn "A" mill. The remains were re
moved to the morgue , where a post-mortem
examination was held to-day with startling
developments. The doctors expressed
the opinion that death was cot
caused by drowning , as no water
was found In the lungs , Indicating
that death occurred before the body reached
the water. TIM condition of the remains was
such M to indicate that the deceased came to
his death by foul play. The scalp was
bruised , the sixtli and seventh ribs frac
tured , the left wrist broken , and there were
several other injuries. The man was about
forty years of ace , and his hair and whiskers
wcro tinged with uray. Another peculiar
circumstance was the absence of anything by
which the remains con It ) be identilied. A large
number of persons viewed the remains , but
Identification was made all the more difllcult
on account of his features being disligured.
Finally a trunk check was found In one of
his trousers pockets issued by the Milwaukee
road. The trunk was found at the depot. In
It were two stamps marked , "M. W. O'Con

A Sensational Episode.
Mrs. Mury Jnckmnn , who was arrested
Sunday at the Instance of Mrs. Foster
Jeffs , of 1U11 Farnum street , chnrired
vitli having stolen a ring nnd some
underclothing , nnd who was found
ruilty of this oflunso in the police court
L'tiosday , nnd ruloitsed by the jutlpo on
account of her pltiablo mental condition ,
iaa created another sensation. Oa
icr liberation she went to the
esidenco of Mrs. Dr. John A'
Cuscadon , 2015 Cnss street , nnd was
generously taken in nnd cared for. It
will he remembered she claims to bo the
laughter of ox-Governor English of
Connecticut , and that the sudden death
of her husband , the Hon. W. T. Jnckman ,
of Now York City , and hur subsequent
apid descent from nlllunnco to penury ,
hrcw her upon her own resources , nnd
ho came to Omaha nnd got up-
a musio class. The sting of her dlsgrucu
icro was moro than she could boar , and
L'ucsday , when the God's wcro badger-
ng her for n , confession , she came near
swooning two or three limes. Her dis-
ractiou and wrought-up condition was
ndecd calculated to incite compassion
and pity in any heart. Her notions ,
iftor reaching Dr. Cuscadon'3 ,
ivoro so unnatural that a watch
was kept upon her. In the
evening she grow moro oalm , nnd at an
early hour retired. At 10 o'clock she
was apparently sleeping peacefully and
soundly , but sometime between that hour
ind midnight , she nroso noiselessly from
lor bed and with equal stealth loft the
muse. She had nothing on but her night
IreiW. She loft the housn by the
jack door and the promises by
the back ulloy gato. Her dis-
aoDcarnuco was discovered about 11
o'clock , but diligent search by a largo
number of the neighbors failed to dis
cover any clue as to whore she had gono.
At the alloy gate her'purse containing
$1.50 was found , and that was all. Her
clothes , with the exception of her night
dress and slippers , wcro all found upon a
chair in her room , just where she had
deposited thorn on retiring. The general
Doliof was that rhn womnn hud mndo
way with her herself , nnd Ollicor Turn-
bull , with ii posse of police , went to work
) n the case' uarly yesterday morning.
Nothing of her whereabouts was learned
by the ollicers , and at nightfall the search
was abandoned , nearly everybody bo-
iioving that the unfortunate woman had
ondeahor uifhappy lifo in the muddy
waters of the Missouri rivor.
These widely &proad rumors , however ,
wore quashed nt a late hour last
evening , nnd the facts relating to the
woman's ' disappearance came to light.
L , C. Thompson , n young colored man
who cares for horses in three different
stables near Hanscom park , shortly
after 8 o'clock yesterday morning entered
ouo of the barns , and hurrodly ran up to
the loft for the purpose of shaking some
hay down to the horses in the two stalls
below. To hia amazement ho heard the
words uttered from some person beneath -
neath the hay : "Oh , my Godl will you
aid me. I am in trouble , am friendless ,
and everybody is persecuting mo. "
Thomson started back with amaze
ment , and as he stood looking with blank
astonishment nt the big pile of hay where
the words had come from , he was almost
torrilied upon seeing the tall form of
a woman arise. She was clad
simply in a pure white night ,
dress , nnd her foot were covered with
tastily ornamented worsted slippers ,
with figltt leather solos. Thompson began
to believe that it wassomo insane woman
from the poor house. Ho mustered cour
age , however , and asked , "Who nro
"I am a poor , unfortunate creature , "
she replied. "lam accused of stealing.
God knows that 1 never stole anything in
my lifo. I have not a friend in the world ,
mid 1 want to got out of the way where
uobody will over see mo again. "
Thompson then took in the situation ,
and' the woman became quite ra
tional nnd told him her story.
She begged him not to tell
anybody where she was , nnd plead
for him to help her to get out west where
she would bo nwuy from everybody who
knew her. She told the story of her mid
night departure from the residence of Dr.
Cuscadcn ; how she had aimlessly walked
in the darkness , and becoming weary as
daylight commenced to break she en
tered the barn by an open door , crept UP
to the loft and buried herself beneath
the hay. She stated that the ring that
she was accused of stealing was only
taken by her for a few hours' use ,
and that she was honest about
it and hud intended to re
turn it to the owner. She
plead for him not to tell anything about
tier to anybody , but to help her to get
away. Thompson thought the mutter
over , nnd in the meantime furnished her
with some ot his wife's clothing. All day
ho tried to porsundu her to return to Dr.
( Jusoadcn's rusidonce , but she did not
wish to do this. All day long she tossed
in a feverish manner in the hay. nnd nt
times her trembling would shako the
little barn. She could not cat any
thing , and she could not bo persuaded to
Toward evening she consented to ride
down to Dr. Cuscadon's with Thompson
for tlio purpose ot obtaining her clothing.
Shortly after 10 o'clock they started in a
buggy on the trip , nnd at 11:20 : o'clock
they arrived nt their destination. After
some moro persuasion slio entered the
doctor's residence , Everybody was sur
prised to see her , and it cannot bo said
that they were glad. They immediate ! } *
sent Thompson to the police headquar
ters to sco if some nrrunguments could
not bo iniiclii to cnru for her there through
the night. Her condition was inquired
into , and the ollicers , upon learning thai
she was very feeble and nervous ,
advised that she bo cared for nt the
doctor's rcsidouco. Dr. Cuscadon con
sented to do this , and Thompso'n left for

Union Pacific reaching from Green River
to Rock Springs , where five of the coal
mines of the company are located.
Through this pipe , water will bo forced
from the former to the latter place for
the use of the mines and the citizens of
the place. There are nbout ono thousand
miners engaged and the town comprises
about one thousand live hundred
inhabitants. The consumption ot
water daily is about ono hun
dred and fitly thousand gallons.
The supply ior the last eighteen years ,
with the exception of that of a spring at
the place which supplies nbout 80,000 gallons
lens daily , has been by means of water
trains , which run almost daily between
the two places. Those generally consist
of twelve cars , each car containing about
3,500 gallons. The cost of the pipe line
will ho about $100,000. It is laid five and
a half foot in the ground and about ono
hundred and fifty men are cncraged in
the work. Thu pipe is eight inches in di
ameter and ascends a grade of 340 feot.
The engines to force the water up this
incline are located at Green Rivor. At
Rock Springs a reservoir is now being
built which will contain 8,000,000 gallons ,
MO.OOO of which may bo forced through
the pipe daily.
The Nebraska Soldiers' Home.
W. F. Scott , the builder of Kearney ,
was in town yesterday with the plans for
the new soldiers' homo in Grand Island ,
which is now in course of construction ,
The homo comprises a structure , two

and seemingly of massive walls and ex
cellent material. The basement com-
pnses the kitchen , pantry , laundry , iron

thu upper stores will bo used temporarily
for wards and administration rooms.
Tlio building is to cost $30,000 , and will
bo used exclusively for the commandant ,
after the cottages contemplated for the
private use of the soldiers and their fam
ilies are erected. ' . Tljuse will nof bo
built however , nnt' tbr the next Jugis-

A Tale or. Intrlcun nnd Murder.
S. II. Leicester was formerly a well
mown character in this city. Ho was
ostensibly nn architect nnd draftsman ,
but really n loafer , n suspicious nnd
nystcrlous character , Ho had an ollico
n Grucnig block , Thirteenth street , north
of the Millard. His place of residence
vas West Lcavonworth street , whore ho
occupied n cottjigo with n woman who
insscd as his wife , but in truth was noth-
ng moro nor less than Ills mistress. Her
name was Edna Denting , and for n period
of two years riho was a conspicuous fig
ure on the promenades hero every pleas
ant afternoon. She was nbout , thirty-
hreo years of ngo , tall and stately , with
ttminous blue eyes , nnd n muss of golden
inir , which she invariably wore in n
tcavy coil high up on the back of her
tend , n hnnddomn dresser , llucnt talker
nnd a personage who had undoubtedly
> cen accustomed to the usages of re lined
nnd cultured society. For n long time
joicestor nnd his fair consort were under
ho surveillance of the police , but
nothing of a criminal or culpable nature
was ever discovered against either of
hem , other than the notorious fnot that
hey were unlawfully living togetner ns
man nnd wife.
Some sixteen months ago this psuedo
tlrs. Leicester's attention was attracted
.o : m iidvbrtisomcnt in the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat's pcrsonalcolumu. It
was signed hy ( ho nnmo of John L.
Jones , who wanted a wife. The advertise-
nent stated in n succinct way that John
j. Jones was the advertiser's right
name , that ho was a ranchman , living
wo miles out of Dallas , Tex. , that ho
vas fifty years old , well off , and wanted
x wife , bo answers excepting from those
that meant actual business wcro desired.
This advertisement Mrs. Leicester
mswcrcd. Her missive produced a
tnppy ollcct for she was shortly in re
ceipt of n lengthy reply , couched in
itlcctionato language , nnd detailing the
ranchman's wishes nnd terms. The corre
spondence was continued for the period
of two or three monthsnud finally photo-
; rnphs were oxchnunod. The woman's
landsouio face nnd clegiint figure settled
the mnttor. Jones immediately there
after sent her n draft on the Now York
National 1'nrk bank for $200 , with the
irgenl request that she lose no timu in
visiting him , adding , if after mooting ,
either party was not satisfied that nt-
egianpo with the other'wotrld bo con
clusive of benclicial results , they could
separate as friends at least. Leicester
and his paramour talked the
matter nil over , and came
: o n definite understanding that
if Jones was found to be * n person of
meiftis , she wns to marry him , nnd to
gether they would work him for nil ho
was worth. Miss Denting went to Dallas ,
was met by Jones , and it was a case of
LOVK ON I'lltST SIGHT.
i'hoy were married the following morn
ing , the Rov. R. L. Mnynard , of the First
Methodist church of Dallas , performing
the ceremony. For n month the domes
tic lifo of the ranchman and his
wife llowod along like a summer
stream. The wife wits dutiful nnd lov
ing , the husband lavish , gentle and ador
ing , in fact they wcro a modal couple ,
and Jones' neighbors were unanimous in
the belief that his advertising venture
had indeed been fraught with felicitous
results. In the interim Leicester , the
architect , wns loading a lifo of
lie.ro. His whilom seedy raiment had
been replaced with showy gar
ments of the latest fashion
able make ; ho sported a two
karat diamond stud , elegant watch
and chum , and in fact gave every evi
dence of being a man of elegant leisure.
Ho lounged around the hotel ofliccs and
lashionablo bars , and seemed to have
nothing to do but to make lito ns toler-
h.blo as money and ease could do. Butte
to return to Texas. Jones , after a couple
of months of unalloyed happiness with
his northern bride , bogim to
cudgel his dull brain to find
out what was becoming of
all the money his wife was continually
drawing on'him for. She dressed mag
nificently that was true , itnd mnde frequent -
quont trips to Austin , Galveston nnd
Now Orleans. Still that was not suill-
cient to lap up the stream of ducats
which ho was unceasingly paving with
her unsatittblp purse. Ho made several
casual inquiries , but she was coy , artful
and evasive , and invariably forced him
to acknowledge that ho know
nothing of n fashionable lady's
capacity to make the lucre Illy. And as
ho had plenty of it , what mattered a few
hundreds moro or loss , any way.
BACK TO OMAHA.
Leicester , lust ono yeur ago , after ho
had drawn through the banks hero , on
Mrs. J. L. Jonus , of Dallas , Tex. , for
moneys amounting to2,500 , moro or
Joss , suddenly disappeared and was
known no moro in ins wonted hanntn.
IIo went to Ttixns. Mrs. Jones met
bun at the depot. She took him
in her phiuton to her homo.
Ho was mtroduccd to the husband as a
cousin front Minneapolis. Ho was 're
ceived with open arms and told to make
himself nt homo. Ho did so , to the limit ,
it is needless to ndd. Jones , though ho
may lack ordinary perspicuity , is not
nearly as blind as a bat. Ho saw things
that made him think. Ho didn't just ex
actly like his wifu'a and her cousin's
frequent visits to the city ,
nor their long walks , in the gloaming
ing about the ranch. And then , too , his
wit'o'w demands for money were moro
frequent and extravagant than ever.
SOMKTHINO "WAS WUONO.
Ho began an espionage upon the couple
plo ; Ho followed their nocturnal rumbles -
blos , nnd on divers occasions saw Leices
ter withhis ; arms about his wifo. Ho was
nursing ills wrath. He wanted to bo
sure. But it is a long &tory. Ono day
during the absence of his wife nnd
her alleged cousin , ho wont to Leicester's
room , opened his trunk and there found
A UUNULK OF J.ETTE113
giving away tlio whole snap. Thcso dee
umonts revealed to Jones what a colossal
sucker ho was. They also accounted for
the largo amounts of money his wife had
disposed of , is well as the mode and
manner of her lifo in Omaha , the identity
of Leicester nnd innumerable
other tilings calculated to rtif-
Ilo a loving and confiding
husband's temper. Leicester was kicked
off the ranch. Mrs. Jones , renh/Jng
that all was nl ait end , abandoned her
home the following day and joined her
paramour in Dallas , 'ihoy were prepar
ing to depart for the north when Jonc ?
had them arrested on a charge of
coNsriitAor ANI > IIOIIHKUV.
Mrs. Jones' trial began in the common
pleas court of Dallas , August ID. She
was placed on the stand in Iho afternoon.
All the morning Jones had been deporting
himself queerly , ami his intimate friends
did not hesitate to say that they thought
the man was crazy. His wife was in the
midst of her testimony when Jones en
tered the court room immediately after
the convening of the afternoon session.
There was a wild look in his n-ye.s and
his hair was unkempt nnd disheveled.
Ho wnlkcd across the room , pait the
sheriff nnd his attendants , and up behind
the witness box. licforo his intention
could bo defined , or any interference
could bo made , ho pulled a revolver and

up next Wetincsday , and the authorities
lioro nro in receipt of nn cxhauMivo letter
from Hon. J. C. Kcarboy , Jones' counsel ,
of Dallas , inquiring for information as to
Mrs. Jones' antecedents. Leicester was
convicted of conspiracy and .santanrod tea

the witnesses in the murder case against
Jones , nnd information In rvgnrd to his
past history lias also boon solicited.
Will They U er Ro 1'alil ?
Chief of Police Soavoy is not n little
annoyed by the notion of the city council
in again referring the bills of the special
policemen. These men were selected
and appointed by the council , yet they
seem to hold the chief responsible for
their pay , and ho is button-holed every
lay by OHO or moro of them with refer
ence to it. The chief has issued time cer
tificates to all of them , and a majority of
them have sold their claims at a sacrifice.
Thu council pave assurance that the bills
would bo ordered paid last night , but instead - '
