stiff in death, was found stretched
on a pile of loose lumlier on Queen

of Lee Chu it Co. Police ofliccr L.
Parish having stumbled over the
corpse in his regular rounds.
Nearby was a scantling measur
ing two by three inches, and over
four feet in length, upon which were
sprinkled n few blood drops and on
one edge of which was a tiny- bunch
of black, kinky hair.
Parish, before he satv the beam of
timber, was inclined to the impres
sion that the negro had licen hit by
an automobile, since there would
appear to lc something of an epide
mic of iiuto accidents but on scour-!
ingaliout for contributory facts, the
careful guardian fell upon the big
stick noted above and, by the aid of
his pocket -searchlight, disclosed the
gore stains. '
lie believed that murder had lieen
done, not stopping to discriminate
the fine jioints of manslaughter and
selfilefeiise, and lost no time in
'phoning Deputy Sheriff Charles
Kose and the jxilice station. He
stood by the body until Hose arrived
Parish's report, handed in at the
police station, is as thorough as a
document of the kind could lie. He
allowed no circumstances to lie dis

done to elicit the facts from those in

and J. MeCanilless of the S. S.
Whaley, Parish rcjiorts, stated to
the ofliccr that he had seen three
men, who seemed to lie under the
influence of liquor n I mut 11 o'clock
last night. He saw them in the
vicinity of the place where the lmdy
was found. As he approached them,
they ran away.
Then along came Ranger from the
S. S. Pleiades and he indentified the
dead negro as H. Wetherill, n ship
He had last seen Wetherill at (1
o'clock last evening.
Then who should arrive on th
scene but Cummins and MeCandless
the latter being the son of n local
McCandless of Civil War fame. Thev
said that they had lieen in the com
pany of the deceased up to 11 p. m
and than he had parted company
with them at that time ut a Jap
anese ice cream iiarlor on ICing
street near Rerctania street.
This morning Cummins and Mc
Candless were placed under arrest
on orders given by Deputy Sheriff
Hose and held, for investigation, for
Hose has good reason to lielieve,
from evidence voluntarily offered,
that the young men were with the
negro a great deal later than 11
o'clock last night and that they
know something of how the African
came to his death.
Hose will endeavor to hold an in
quest at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
He has secured for jurors the fol

mortem examination, made this
forenoon, reveals the fact that Wet
herill was struck heavily three times
in the head, there being three fract
ures of the skull. P.loud came from
but one of them, wounds.
Cummings and McCnndless were
under the influence of liquor last
evening. etlienll also is said to
have lieen under the influence.
