THE AUTOMOBILE MURDER.
Diligent Search Has Failed to Throw
Any Light on the Mystery.
Chicago, Nov. 21. Diligent search
by a score of detectives Sunday in the
vicinity of Lamont failed to throw any
light on the mystery surrounding the
murder of William Bate, who was shot
and killed and his body left in an au
tomobile at a lonely spot on Archer
road Saturday morning. Many new
alews were discovered Sunday by the
detectives but nothing of a tangible
nature bearing on the murder had
been learned. An inquest was begun
Sunday, but after empaneling a jury
the case was continued until Novem
ber 30. The police are proceeding on
the belief that two murders was com
mitted, and that Bate was killed to
conceal the first murder. It Is the
opinion of the detectives that "Dove,"
the person who rented the nutomoblle,
had a companion, presumably a wom
an. This person, the police believe,
was made away with by ''Dove" and
the body secreted in the woods or
among the quarries that skirt the vi
cinity where Bate's body was tound.
Going on this theory the detectlvps
on the case began a systematic search
of the surrounding country for tho
body of the other person who Is sup
posed to have been murdered.
