Pronounce Cause of Death Unknown.
Little evidence was Introduced at
the long delayed inquest held yester
day afternoon at the Nissen Hart
wig undertaking parlors on the death
of Prank Harding that threw any
light on the manner in w hich he came
to his death and the verdict returned
by the Jury was that he met death in
an unknown way. Testimony offered
the coroner was very incomplete. Mrs.
Louise Behrend, the woman who stood
so prominently in the love colony
case, testMed to the effect that she
had seen Harding the last time on
May 8, at the court house when he
submitted his testimony to the grand
Jury. She also stated that she had
never heard Sambo, the man concern
ed in the case, utter a threat in re
gard to putting Harding out of the
W9V. Sht nl.n atatari tl. m-li .n ch.
came to Davenpurt May S she had left
Sambo at home and that when she re
turned to the farm he was still there.
As Harding was not seen after the
above mentioned date there in little
doubt that Sambo hd nothing to do
with his death. Sambo was not sub
poenaed for the inquest. It is prob
able thut nothing further will be done
in the case. Other witnesses who
were examined were George Schroe
der and John Holdt. who found the
body in the river; Louis Maeckel and
John Malm loff of Donahue and Theo
