Two large banners were carried by
the marchers. One was inscribed "The

"Police and militia," and below, "Who

said that with Mr. Bryan on the ground
a general campaign would be started not
only to defeat Governor Dix for renom

of Mr. Murphy In this state. The anti
Murphy leaders were not at all certain,
however, that Mr. Bryan could be pre

were murdered near here Friday night
under circumstances Indicating one of the
most revolting crimes in the history -of
the state. The home of the victims was
burned In an effort to destroy the bodies,

clentily to show that the heads had been
split with an axe. The dead are Charles

was visiting Miss Pfanschmldt The kill

Police and armed posses are searching
the country for the slayer. The authori
ties believe that the murder Is the work
of a degenerate of the same kind as the
perpetrators of similar axe murders In
Iowa and Colorado recently.
Further developments tonight indicate
strongly that all four. were murdered be
fore the home was' destroyed by fire.
While the bodies .of the victims ate
charred almost beyond recognition, the
head of Miss Kaempen is well preserved
and at the top of -the skull is a wound,
evidently made with a club. She and Mrs.
Pfandschmldt were found partly under a
mattress, which had to some extent pro
tected their bodies from the flames. A
pillow upon which Miss Kaempen had
been lying was not burned. It is soaked
with blood. v
The Pfandschmldt girl's face is badly
burned, but the back of her head was pro

President Taft came last night or today
in reply to Governor Hadley's ultimatum
to the state republican committee yes
terday as to the terms on which he
would support the president in the pres

of the 'advisory committee of the repub- j
lican national committee, who said that i
though he had wired President Taft last I
nigh' the text of Governor Hadley's
ultimatum and had failed to hear from
the president, he had sent the president
a second telegram today saying that no
immediate reply was necessary.
Colonel Stifel, explaining this action,

the president that he considered "Had
ley's speech last night at the opening
of the state republican campaign as an
endorsement of Taft and a promise to

alias "Doc" Daniel!, arrested on identifi
cation by his wife. Is not a member of
the gang that robbed the bank, but an
agent for them, according to James
Sidlas, the Greek saloonkeeper in whose
place lieutenant Burns was injured in
an attempt to arrest the safe blowers.
More fines Srcured.
Sldias told today of his attempts to dis
pose of S140.000 of the stolen bills. Ho Bald
he personally turned over $10,000 given
him to Chief of Police McWeeney Sep
tember 18. The man who gave Sldias the
$10,000 Still Is at large, according to Sidlas,
as is another who was with him when
Sidlas was shown $140,000 In Canadian
money. A man known to the saloon
keeper as "Big Charlie" conducted the
negotiations for the exchange of the
stolen money. Sidlas says he was offered
a 15 per cent commission for changing the
bills. An attempt to change the bills In
a west Bide bank aroused suspicion and
Sidlas withdrew from the transaction In
fear that he would get into trouble, he
"Big Charlie" and "Dauzell," Sidlas
says, were the two men in his saloon
with Lulu Wilson and Bessie Voight when
Burns made his attempt to arrest the
men. "Danzell" bit the lieutenant's wrist
wliile "Big Charlie" felled him with a
ol air. The two men escaped and Sidlas
says he has never seen either of them
since nor the man who had the $140,000.
Assistant Chief Hchuetler again ques
tinned Jeannette Little, Stacey's wife, to
day. He learned from her that she has
been associated with thieves since she
was U years old. From her he expects
to get a line on many gangs of thieves
besides the Canadian bank robbers.
