Thp murder caiiMlng this agitation
wan one of the boldest and at the
aaino time one of tho most atrocious
and cold .blooded ever perpetrated
In the state of ArkanKas.
July 7 of thin year the lifolegs
form of Mrs, Ada Klecher, a beauti
ful woman of not more than thirty
years of age. was discovered lu a
cottage I" Kirk atreet In Hot Sprlui;
by Itobert Harris, a ll!-yoar-old boy
renldlog In the neighborhood. Tho
diMcovery, made about 9 o'clock In
the forenoon, was reported to the
chief of police without delay. En
trance waa had to the houve from the
rer. The entire front portion of
the cottage was found to he locked.
The nurder was committed with a
machlnlat's hammer, the woman's
forehoad being beaten to a pulp.
Upon the hammer was found no
blood, but a bit of cuticle from the
woman's face had adhered to the
faco of the weapon. A towel wan
hound about the woman's head, and
a portion of It thrust Into her mouth,
thus preventing any outcry. She waa
lying face downward In a l)ol of her
own blood and her hair and fuce
were badly blood clotted.
The. room was In period order o
far as the bed and the miiln furnlHh-
lngn wer concerned. Tho bed hart
nut been occupied, but the content
of dieter drawera were Miewn
a bo ill die apartment. Suit cases
worH ripped open oml other recep
tacles that mlitht have held artlcli'M
of value were disturbed. One of the
womiin's stocking In whh h li' whh
known to have curried a considerable
amount of money wax rlppi'd almoxt
entirely from her limb. Diamond
worn on her hands and In her eiira
had ln'en torn away, as well a.s other
ibllH of Jewelry known to have been
In hr poHHeHnlon.
Mun unil lh(. Children.
On the afternoon prior to the
finding of the dead woman a nun,
who had been seen at the home of
Mm. JUecber, was noticed to have
tukcu the three children of tho dead
woman to VYblttliiKton park. A
neighbor llvlnjf next door remem
bered to have heard tho man tell one
of the Hill" boys that if they would
b good liH would take them to the
park for tho afternoon. The chil
dren of the dea(j woman are Orgle, a
girl uged H, l'hlllp, b years, and
Kiank 3 years.
TIih man went to tho park and
telling the little boys to remuin near
the auditorium until he returned lie
took their Mister with hi in, try
ing he wanted to wash his IiuikK
This was iiccordlug to ihe story told
by the eldest of the boys on the day
their mot bet's body wan discovered.
They waited In obedience to hl In
structions until it was lute and then
wandered back to the cottage in
which Jay the dead woman.
I'pon reaching homo the children
found the doors locked and were
cared for during the night by neigh
bors. It is ibelleved that the mother
of the children had been killed prior
to their removal to the park.
The man having the little girl In
charge Is believed to have hired a
rig and driven Into the country,' as a
man with a child, both answering the
descriptions given, were seen shortly
after the hour they must have left
the park, Tho man gave a fictitious
name and stated lhat ne uua reached
the city but a few hours before.
Later the rig returned . without a
driver and was taken In charge by
Agaiii at Little Hock a day later
a mun answering tho description and
accompanied by a little girl were
seen at the union station. At the
station he disponed of a diamond
ring at a very low price id stated
that he waa suffering. W lieu asKcil
by the purchaser of the ring what
address he should keep for the re
demption of the ring, the seller
would not write a nam,, but simply
called himself by a name t hut ho
said fcould be sufficient. Thin was
the last tace of the Individual until
the line or Inquiry that leads to tho
(ilrl Is Discovered.
A few days later the little girl waa
discovered lu Birmingham, Ala.,
from which place she was later re
turned to relatives. She stated that
she was drugged aoon after leaving
the park and did not regain conscous
ness until she had reached a point
far from there. After she did re
gain possession of her faculties she
was kept on the end of the soat In the
train nearest the window and as
not permitted to speak to anyone in
the coach. Kho was taken to Bir
mingham and abandoned, and later
found there as has ibeen stated.
It is the Impression of the orfloers
that the murderer took the little girl
away to prevent her telling of his
presence In the house, and what she
might develop In the matter of dis
covering the dead body of her moth
er before he had made his escape, -Nerured
The dead woman and her husband
Harry P, Klecher, were separated at
the time' of the tragedy, he being her
second husband. He did not come
to Hot Springs with Jier, being a res
ident of Oklahoma and she coming
to Arkansas from Dallas, Texas. She
bad been In the city only a few woeks
at most and had roomed at a public
house until about two days before the
killing. It was in the payment of
the rent for the cottage Kirk
street that the fact of her possessing
a goodly amount of money became
known. A woman to whom payment
was mad ctated that Mrs. Rlecher
exhibited large roll of 'bills and
took from it J15 with which payment
was made. The remainder of the
monyy was placed In her stocking.
The beauty and bIzo of the diamonds
worn were noticed by the landlady.
Following Investigation officers
swore out complaint charging Archie
Banister with the murder of Mrs.
Rlecher. Circulars and telegrams
were soon on their way over the
country covering a radius of 600
miles. Local officers spent the re
mainder of that day and the follow
ing night In ft fruitless search for
the murdered. From that tlmo fol
lowing much time nl money have
been expended in the i-uase, which
now gives some promise of success.

Chief of Police Snider knows both
of the Banister iboys and has more

upon misdemeanor charges. He
states that the descriptions issued
by the Hot Springs officers are as

possible discrepancy as to height and
