For Instance, Herman Knaak died and
left an estate then valued at about $14,000.
though worth more now by reason of the
advance In the value of land. After the
personal property had been sold, every

She was later married to Mike Elchberger.
The second husbsnd secured possession of
this money; also some more belonging to
his wife, and bought a ISO-acre farm with

a scratch of a pen Is on record to show
that Elchberger gave a note or security

placidly, notwithstanding the unusual cir

NO TANGIBLE CLUE TO ASSASSIN
Captain Hase Scoffs the Wenas
Theory . and la Sot Cer
tain te Motive for
After two days of work by the sheriff's
ofhee the oeuiu of Herbert C. Buike, wose
body was round at l- ioience Monuay nio.n
ing, remains as deeply snroudta in mys
tery as it fis the morning he was found.
Deputy BherilT Hase, who has been re
tailed to work on the case, otter running
down all clues, declares he has been unable
to unearth any evidence to offer a reasona
ble explanation of the case.
The murder theory which Is held by many
who have looked Into the case offers ihe;uun or Aimers, wno are in prison
best solution of some of the circumstance
but absolutely no motive for the crime cm
be found. The accident theory la seemingly
disproved by the location of the body.
One thing brought out by the tnves.lga
tion of the case is that the two men s-en
with Burke on the Florence car a..brtly
after 7 o'clock Sunday night and the two
men seen with him in the water works sta
tion between t and 9 o'clock are not the
same persons. There is no evidence so far
as to whether the three were companions
or merely casual fellow passengers and

dark clothes and stiff hats. Mr. Holbrook which right-thinking people turn with
says he did not observe any conversation
between Burke and the two, but all three
got off together and went toward the water
works. On of them had previously asked
htm if he thought it would be too late to Idaho and Colorado authorities said the

Engineers Potter and Pearson at the ! such abuse of high officials by counsel. Ho
watr works both observed Burke looking toik the position that even If it were true

were near him part of the time. Neither ,
of them could say the three had come to-!
getber. as they did not seem to converse
with each other. The description of the
two men does not tally with that given by
Conductor Holbrook. Both of the wen, he
says, were larger than Burke and one wore
a light suit of clothes.
The only tangible accident theory so far
advanced Is ' that owing to the darkness
Burke missed his way and took the road
leading to the dump Instead of the one go
ing toward the car. This, It is said, could
easily happen, as the road to the dump Is
used frequently and Is well worn. It leads
abruptly to a timber which Is placed across
it to prevent wagons that are being dumped
fronr backing down the Incline. The ashes
aro then thrown on a sheet-Iron chute,
which extends about a third of the way
across the car. On the other side of the
ear is a steep declivity, on which tha body
waa found. -'',-.
' :.U I wpa'mn: Acldna..
, Captain ..Has believes If it waa an ac
cident Burke followed the road, tripped on
the timber at the dump and slid down the
smooth sheet-Iron slide to the car. and
then, thinking he was on -a large pile of
cinders, walked off the ' car and dropped
down the incline. Tho principal trouble
with this theory is the fact the body was
found too far from the car to have dropped
there of ita own weight.
Burke's mother and his cousin, Fred
Blckley, both say Burke was in the habit
of going about alone and that he seldom
had companions. Mr. Rlckley says he does
not know of his keeping company"" with
young women at all,, and Captain Haxe
does not credit the theory that a woman
Is 'mixed up In the case.
Captain Haxe expects to go out to Flor
ence In the evening to look at the sltua-
tion after dark to see if the accident theory
