Interstin the Mary Churchill Affair
The Plot Thickens and tho Myatery Grows
Darker-The Wild Rumors from Texas
Not Yet Oonfirmod -Litest rrora El

St. Loci.h, Sept. 12, An answer has
been received to Col. ( liurcliiU'a Kl Puno
message, and he 1- fvl loslnf hope in all
exinnectlon with Jb.at place. Mr. Haker, of
the Western I'nion, received a telegraitl
from Rrunka, the operator at El Paao, last
nifbt, in which he stated that notbins fur
ih r could be leartwii. Mr. Baker thinks
Rrookn knows nothint' more than what
wag gathered from iiitnoM and tele
(,'rama that came to the office. M. L.
Johnson has turned out to be a correspon
dent who h.ia been on the wrong track.
The drtecilven and newspaper men of F.I
Pa.o are still confident that Ihey have
located Mary Churchill in tho vicl.iiiy, and
are usinc eyery effort to secure an Inter
view with her. Mary Rums, the girl who
wa laken for Mary Churchill, bus turned
out to be a different character from the
Tb l.wleat Iteport.
Ki. Paso, Tex., Sept. 12. A dozen ru
mors are afloat htra regarding the Church
ill matter, though It is now universally con
ceded that the ifirl Mary Burns Is not Miss
Churchill. Mary Burns is now In Chihua
hua. mid her mother keeps a boarding
hoime ihere. s?he resembles Mary Church
ill's published description very much. Mr.
(jaldwell is stopping at the same boarding
house, which gave additional color to the
theory that she was Miss Churchill. If hc
has been here she did not come with Cald
well. The story that ibe is held by black
mailers is the one mont generally accepted,
hut whether on this aide of the
river or the other u a disputed point. No
one scenjs to know who holds her, but It is
vaguely hinted that it Is some prominent
ii.en. Tie. atory appears lacking In
requisite detail. Caldwell left here on the
-8th and reached Cbihuabici the same day.
Several days ago, however, be left for the
Parallel, baring previously rented a room
lo a private house mi 1 p.iid toe rent for a
month. He is expected b-sck in chihuahua.
Im ports from Cbihuahu a say MaryCurch
ill is supposed to have arrived in th at city
lue night before last, 6;it her whereabouts
are unknown. The womau who was
rirt taken for ber has been there a
couple of weeks. I am trying to trace Cald
well, and will catch him soon. I think.
F.xpect news thia afternoon from bim and
the lady said to be Miss ChurcJiill. It is
getting to he pretty generally understood
that bo large reward can b expected, and
peraons a few days ; ago very much
Irttereated are now apparently indifferent.
I dooU very much that Mujs Churchill bat
been here at all. There hare been absolu
tely no developments of consequence mnce.
yesterday, im the arrival of the. train
in Oibuahtu from the South at ft
o'clock ibis afternoon. Albfrt
Mack ley, a brakeman on that train, will he
seen and go around with parties n the
a i i t there to identify Miss Churchill.
Miirkley was a neighbor of the Churchilli
and knows Mary well. His father lives
here. The impreiniou having gained
ground there was a larje amount of monev
to be made oot of this affair, a great many
persona have gone into It with that view and
seizing upon Ihe sligbteM rcse mblance have
deceived themselves into the belief they
bad found the missing ghi. Thua there
are a doen men w ho darm to know where
she i, but each on? has in mind a different
person. Last night I was told the was
singing on the stage of the National Thea
tre, a variety theatre in the city, and re
iiiesud to go around and identify her.
There mas a resemblance to be sure, hut
il is needless to say it wa.s not Misa Church
ill. Now tnal the people are convinced no
large rewatd is lo be marie out of the af
fair the various mysterious stories and
ambiguous appearance of Miss Churchill
will gradually !e explained, I think, and
within the next day or iwo we shall be able
to get all the real truth. I look upon the
ransom atory a highly sensational and ri
diculous," Aavther Telefrisui.
Late this afternoon Col. Churchill reoeif
ed the following telegram. It is signed
by Mr. Smith, the division superintendent
of telegraph at Kl Paso:

and I think It is doubtful about her being
