as to What
Lea to It.
It would be superfluous to make
extended allusion to the circum
stances of young Fred Kuschmann's
death. The Abucs has given all the
developments of the case as fast as
they could be traced, but knowing of
how delicate a nature were some of
the disclosures and suspicions, it has
oeen exceedingly guarded in such
allegations as have been made, and
notwithstanding that , Mr. Bastian
had complained of having been sus
picioned in connection with the
crime, no statements were made that
would place him nnjustly before the
people. 'Satisfied, however, that
most foul murder had been per
petrated. Tub Akgus has urged from
time to time, as it did most strenu
ously last night, that the red handed
assassin be apprehended. Circum
stances which are expected to estab
lish exclusively tbe exact place
wnere me murder 01 Kuscbmann was
committed and to develop an entirely
new theory as to when and on what
account the crime took place have
been in daily anticipation, but for
fear that erroneous and harmful im
pressions might be gained, allusion
to tbe tame has been withheld nntil
the proper time.
