and ahe esid she ojM think of none, ss
Mlaa Rummelhart had no enemie that
she knew of. It waa suggested that rob

hut Mir. Anderson aald:
"I do not believe that this could poaalhly
have becnthe motive, a my friend was
very plainly dreel and had no pocketbook
or purae with her Paturday night. In fact,
ahe did not even carry enough money ror

woman of mature age and waa the pos
sessor of an Irreproachable character. Sat
urday n!ght she csme home from work, as
j usual, and we all had supper together,
Miss Rummelhart finishing about :S0 and
going to her room. Tht waa the last time
I any of us saw her until I went to the

car Oleen told me of the resemblance of
the woman at the morgue to Mlaa Rummel

after aearchlng her room I called up Miss
Anderson, with the result you know."
When Miss Anderaon and Mies Holneas

wss completely prestrsted when he heard
the news. When requested tor a brief
statement, ha said:
"My sinter had lived with me at tny
home. Til North Forty-flret struct, until
about four years ago, when he found mat
my home war too far away from her
place of work, a I Kelley's. She hsd been
employed as a sea.matrcs by mis linn lot
more than seven years and was an expert
shlrtmaker. For the last year she bad boon
living at the Scandinavian Young Women's
Christian association, which waa com
paratively close to her work. I have sevn
her often since then and she spent much
of her lime at my home. The laat time I
saw her alive was lt Friday afternoon,
when she cams to my store about noon
and stayed a few minutes. We went to
lunch together at a nearby restaurant and
then shs returned to her work, but I ex
pected to see her again this evening, when
she was to come to my house. She was
40 years of age and had lived the greater
portion of her life in Omaha, whero ahe
haa many friends, although she had no
Inclination tor society beyond her tew in
timate friends and relatives. Our father
and mother died several years ago, but We
have telegraphed all our other relatives.
I am her only, brother, but she has a sis
ter, Mrs. Rasmus Hansen, living at St.
Louis, and two other slaters, Mrs. John
Kura and Mrs. Frank Neider, who reside
at Iowa City. Her sisters have all been
uo lifted of her doath , and probably will
come to Omaha Immediately."
Funeral arrangements have not been def
initely decided upon, aa an Inquest will
be held, and Mr, Kummelhart said he
j could not say where ths body would be
burled until after consultation with other
members of the family, wlie are expected
to arrive In the city tonight. .

It la the theory of several of the of
cera that the crime was committed by a
negro and that Mb Rummelhart wss
criminally assaulted by ths brute In the

' Dlaeovery f the Roa.
The body waa found by W. B. Hughes,
secretary of the Nebraska Bankers' as
soclatlon, and Paul I. owe at a time which
Paul I.owe s m6ther says was 10 H. Mr.
t Hughes tells the story of the discovery
'It wss around ln:?n atnl I was sitting
reading in bed, having taken off my clothes
and rttlred for the night. The window
waa open 1 heard a strnnge sound that
disturbed me and as I lay down my book

"I Went to the door nnd called young

"It was a Woman, Mng with her skirts
turned over her head and In a pool of
blood. We pulled the clothing down and
found the head terribly manned and blood
All over the face snd clothing. 'It's a
case of murder." I said to Iowe. and told
him to atay with the wotnnn Until I
"I ran to my house, told my sister what
It was and told her to telephone to the
doctors and the police station. Then I
came bsck to Lowe.
"We tried in vain to get her to speak.
We raised her head snd found It had
been lying on a broken brick, which, when
we examined It later, gave all the appear
ance of ' having been used to crush her '
hesd. ' !
"Thinking that the telephone calls might
miscarry. 1 t0'd Lowe to hurry over to Dr.
Ralph's and get him. Just sfter he left
she made a struggle and finally raised
: heref on lir elbow until her head rested
on her arm and hand. It was but a mo
ment and She fell back. After that I
never saw her make a movement -except
when she seemed to try to talk.
Two Doctors aait Masr Others.
"Dr. J. B. Ralph and Dr. W. O. Henry
came together In a short time, for It
seems Dr. Hnry had been calling at the
other physician's house. By that time
a dosen or more people were there. In
fact, I had been left hut a moment alone
with the woman after Lowe left.
"After the doctors came we carried her
out of the low place to the walk at the
back of the house. It wss then that the
gash In her throat waa found. We asked
her questions and told her to shake or nod
her head In reply, but we got no response
from her. There was a constant gurgling
In her throat and her lips kept moving.
I thought they tried to frame the word.
'I'm murdered.' It was not very long un
til the patrol wagon came and we put
her In It.
"The detectives and several other peo
ple got "amp and lanterns and began to
examine the ground all around the neigh
borhood and I went back to bed."

"ft was the first Saturday night In two
years that I had been home." said Paul
Lowe, "and It was the first 'night this
fall I had closed my window. If my win

before Mr. Hughes, as my window Is so
much closer the spot where she was found

; my pyjamas. My mother told me after-
warda ahe looked at the clock as I left
the house and It waa ten minutes to U.
I thought as Hughes did. , that It was ej

tirely unprepared for the sight of a hu
man body In blood.
"We telephoned for the officers and I
dressed and got the doctors, and when
"they came we moved her to where we
could get a better light on her face. It
might have been imagination, but Mr.
Hughes and I both thought ahe tried to
say 'I'm murdered.'
"When we looked cvey the ground. with
lanterns we docl ied she t id been dragged
from a tree in our front yard. Just to
One aide of the hotia. t'nder the tree
I found a waist and a man's handkerchief,
both with spots of blood on them, and a
side comb. Near by waa a paper which
looked aa though It mights have been used
aa a wrapper for the waist."
Telephone to Police.
. As soon as possible after the discovery
of the body a telephone call was sent
to. the police station and the patrol wagon
responded with Kmetgency Ohicer Mc
Carthy and Patrolmen Rlnn and Lalu-y.
Dra. Henry and Ralph administered
emergency measures after which the
woman waa taken to the Omaha General
hospital In a patrol Wagon.
With Captain Dunn In command the
j officers made a thorough search ef the
streets and alleys ror a distance of sev
eral blocks from the scene of tho mur
der, with the hope of finding a possible
clue in the way of a knife or other In
strument. Lanterns were obtained aud a
palnstsklng search niada of the ground
between the house of Mr. Lowe aud the
adjoining house, but with little success.
With daylight a pine stick about three
feet long and nearly an inch thick waa
found. It was spotted with blood at ene
end and had hanging to It a long dark
hair. It was not on the lot where ths
body wss found, but lay en the opposite
side of Dodge street and on ths eaat side
of Twenty-sixth, dlstsnt from the spot
of the discovery of the body by almost
the entire length of. a full lot and the
width of Dodge street.
Blood Sidewalk. ' -s
.On the brick sidewalk about two. feel
from 4he slick was found a pool of dried
blood about four Inches In diameter and
seversi spatters of blood Were discovered
between that poool and ths edge of the
sidewalk. Drops of blood leading across
the street toward the Lowe house- were
found. All these circumstances proved
that the attack was made on the north
aide, of Dodge and not onNhe lot on the
south aide of , the street, where the body
waa found, as ' waa the su post lion Saturday
Spots of blood were few in the street,
but on ths graaa and dirt along the length
ef the LoWe yard they could be easily
traced In the daylight. The dstalla of
the scene bear evidence te ths fact that
the woman was struck on the bead with
a club at the telephone pole, carried
across the street and then dragged to
the rear of the lot. where her throat wss !

LIKCOl o-u. 7. (Bpeclal.) Don C.
Love, a ,. y attorney of this city,
gave the second Sunday morning address
In All Soul's Unitarian church this morn
tng. In which he advocated that the rich
should be compelled to perform three
hours' manual labor each day. He said
that if a young man should find a large
amount of money and thus be able to pay
for what he gets, he Is nevertheless no
more" useful to society than a mendicant
who begs at the door. The speaker urgud
that women who have a dosen more
dresses than they need are guilty of
waste. He said that three hours of labor
for each person dally would mean the
banishment of toll and drudgery Jrom the
earth. This Ideal condition, he believed,
could be brought about, not necessarily
by means of new lawa, but by public
sentiment. There Is only one way to
help humanity, he said, and that la by
helping them to correct thinking, and
If the people would think clearly on this
subject, and therefore cease to honor the
rich as tbey now do, but despise the Idle
rich. It would rid the world of this ono
evil at least. Of the professional men

"If you each do your share then there
will not bs too much for any one. It
you do your shara It will not leave you
one whit less able to teach and lo preach,
to compose a poem or paint a picture,
rather more able tb do So, while If you
do not do your share and your neighbor
does Jhe work for two, he becomea a
drudge and beast of burden with do
formed body and stuned soul. Under
that system there would be, say, ono
poet and one drudge. Under the system
I propose there would be two poets, per
haps, but at leaat no drudge."
