Wichita, Kas., Nov. IS. (Special.) With
his liming dashed out with a hatchet
nnd his fnco nnd body feariully mangled
with a club or Iron, tho body of Henry
I.eou.iul, an old soldier nbout 52 yens
of age and a piomlncnt fiiinitutu denier
of this city, was found In nn nlley In the
center of the city nt t! o'clock this morn
ing. The murderer, or muideiets,
dragged the body two blocks tluough the
alley to thiow It ihto u sewer, but they
weio tumble to remove the cap fiom the
manhole and, evidently being; f lightened
away, de.-eited the body.
The police heatd that Leonard was
seen goliiK into the homo of hK mis
tiess, liene Wllllanibon, the picvluus
night. They hastily went there and
found Mis. Williamson sciaping human
blood from tho carpet with a case knife.
Sho nnd her la-year-old son, Norvllle,
were Immediately placed under arrest
and confined in the county Jail, where
sho confessed that her divorced husband,
Marion Williamson, found Leonard in
her house nt 10 o'clock the previous night
In bed and mutdcrcd him with nn linn
bar. After murdeilntf him, she alleges
itlint he sat by the bed until after mid
night nnd then dtagged the body into
the alley with the Intention of buiylng
It in the sewer.
Williamson was nt once arrested, and
while he pioved it strong alibi, ho was
still kept in Jail for a hearing. The
authorities, without exception, believe
that Mrs. Williamson and her son killed
Leonard for $",000 Insurance which she
Induced him to have made payable to
her nbout thieo weeks- ago, at which
time ho nlso wanted to many her but
could not do so legally, ns she had not
been divorced long enough.
Alter Mis. Williamson was anested
further examination of the house was
made and a lot of clothing, including her
apron and her son's vest, was found.
The clothing was In the stove, with
kindling wood under it, but thoso -who
put It there evidently had foigotten to
npplv the match.
Mrs. Williamson Is 2," veais of age and
rather pretty and blight, although un
educated. Mr. Leonard was completely
infatuated with her. The coroner's in
quest will commence to-morrow, having
been ilelned with the expectation that
Mrs. Willlnmson would confess evety

The gill's lather, Samuel Hay, however,
was riot sntlHlled, and wanted Henderson
held for trial. A ipiarrel ensued and Hen
derson grabbed a hatchet and split Haj 's
head open. Ho then made a rush for tho
door and was met by Mrs Itay in the
aisle. He struck her In the lie. id with the
hatchet and Mr.-. McKall, a sister of Dora
Has, also had her head cut open. Just as
lie was going through the door, Henderson
spilt Thomas Smrkiy's head with another
lie then lied and has not as yet been

The color oil population, which comprises
a large portion of the little towrr, are
