Schneider makes an alleged confes

count of how he and two other for

with a Russian accent to steal impor

velope containing papers bearing the
seal of the I'nited States government.
He gave the police the name of a
man who he alleged employed him to
secure the papers, and also the names
of the two others said to be concern
ed in the theft. He now asserts that
his employer was a Russian, and says
that after the robbery all four slept
in a warehouse, before leaving which
he and his two associates received $25
The Birmingham police say they are
convinced that Mr. Loom is was not
the victim of the robbery, as alleged.
They will, however, investigate the
case as possibly disclosing another
crime, but they discredit the whole

CORONER SHEDS NO LIGHT
Jury's Verdict in Carpenter Case, Iowa
City, Leaves Mystery Dark.
Iowa City, Iowa, Aug. 20. The mys
tery'of the death of Winfield S. Car
penter was not solved by the coroner's
jury, which yesterday afternoon re
turned a verdict that deceased came to
his death by poison administered by
some person or persons unknown. Tfie
verdict tends to lift a cloud from the
widow. Dr. E. W, Rock wood, chemist
at the state university of Iowa, report
ed that his analysis of the coffee re
maining in Carpenter's dinner pail re
vealed no poison of any kind, although
his earlier examination had resulted
in the discovery of strychnine in the
stomach of the dead man. Carpenter's
brothers. Willis and Frank, of Keokuk,
Iowa, insist on a more rigid inquiry in
to the mystery. They are bitter
against their sister-in-law. The cor
oner declines to go further in the
matter. The grand jury will meet next
month, and may pursue the investiga
tion. AN IOWA MAN IS KILLED

at Bald Rock canyon. He was climb

1 have always believed, and my
conviction came from the hard school
of experience, that, measured by the
character of the work he has done and
the cost of living, every man is en
titled to full compensation for his ser

proceedings which led to an injunction
against strikers by Judge Jackson, of
this state. The fact is. I had nothing
'whatever to do with the case, and
knew nothing about the matter until
I read it in the newspapers. The in
junction did not apply to the men in
our employ nor pertain to them in
any way. On the contrary, I remember
on one occasion one of our superin
tendents suggested an injunction
against our men. and I declined to
consider it. H. G. DAVIS.
