MAN IS MYSTERY
Interviews Mayor McConochie
Concerning the Edwards
DECLINES TO TELL HIS NAME
Probably Can Enlighten Police on
Robbery of Coal Valley Resi
dent in This City.
Mayor William McConochie had a
iit today from a mysterious stranger
who was seeking information concern
ing the accident that befell William
Kdwards, of Coal Yallev, two months
Kdwards, it will be recalled, bail ap
parently stumbled while walking
along the Kock Island railroad tracks
near the approach to the Sylvan
slough bridge, lost his balance and
rolled down the embankment into the
He would have perished doubtless
but for the discovery of his plight by
an employe of the railroad company
who was at work in the yards. Kd
wards was pulled out of the water
and conveyed, to police headquarters,
where it was learned that one of his
heels was broken.
The next day Kdwards related a
story that mystified the police. It was
in ctVect that while walking up Fifth
avenue he dropped into a saloon, took
a drink and went his wav. but before
he had gone far his reason deserted
him. and when he came to he was in
the water, and minus his money.
Mar Have lit-ra Attempted Murder.
The theory gained from Kdwards'
narration was that he was first drug
ged and ihen robbed. He claimed to
have been separated from something
like :Sn. It might have been a case
of attempted murder, but Kdwards is
unable to state positively whether he
was pushed or fell into the river.
Neither does he know how his heel
came to he hurt, as it is not believed
falling against a rock would have pro
duced the injury, lie remained in the
city several days at the residence of
a friend before he was able to go to
his home in Coal Valley.
Put to the mysterious stranger, lie
wanted to know of t lie mayor if Kd-
! wards had made anv move towards
clearing the cloud that obscured the
facts in his experience on that day in
Kock Island. The mayor, who is
somewhat of a Sherlock himself spar
red a few moments with his visitor in
an etVort to ascertain his real mission,
but found he was up against a -phinx.
He also declined to ttdl his name or
address. He got no information from
the mayor, for the reason that the
latter had none to give, and when he
iealizcd he hail aroused the execu
tive's curiosity, he withdrew.
That the stranger knows something
concerning the Kdwards case that has
been kept in the dark is pre liable. It
may residt in a further investigation
on the part of the police.

ed that he had tried to purchase a
ticket on the Santa Fe at Fast Gales
burg. and learning that the train did
not stop ihere, he went to Galcsbuf
ami bought a ticket for Strcator. Pv
the time this discovery had been madt
the train was almost due in Streatoi
and it required fast work on the part
of the oiVicers to notify the Streatoi
authorities in time to capture him a
he left the train.
He said his name was Peter Kiow
ski and that he was on his way home
from North Dakota to La Salle. Two
gold watches and 10 in money were
found on his person. From t he fact
that .the clothing of the murdered
man showed evidence of having been
rifled, it is thought possible that Ihe
murder was committed for money.
