Suicide Mystery
No! Cleared Away
Body of Unknown Girl in Now "$Tork
Morgue Is Idonti
' fied.
NEW YORK, Sept. 23. MyBtcry en
veloplng the suicide of a pretty young
girl, "L K.," ln Centrnl park, wa3
partly cleared when Mrs. Annlo "Wil
liams called at tho morgue and identi
fied the body na that of Millie Kruger,
a manicurist.
The ldcntillcatlon followed the visit
to the deadhouse of two mysterious
women ln a carriage on whose panels
wore emblazoned a coat of arms, a crest
and the initials "J. B. in a mono
gram. "Women Overcome.
After entering and viewing the body
both women showed such signs of deep
emotion as to make It certain that they
recognized the body. But just at this
time, when it appeared certain that the
mystery was to be cleared, it was ren
dered deeper than ever by their fail
ure to admit recognizing the dead
The note found ln the dead girl's
hand was addressed to "J. R." The Ini
tials upon the carriage were "J. B. R."
These Initials, Mrs. "Williams says, were
those of a wealthy merchant who used
to call on Miss Kruger and who prom
ised to marry her.
The morgue-keeper believes that, the
girl belonged to a different, station in
life from those who usually drift Into
the dreary little building of which he Is
In charge, and for that reason the body
has been kept on view much longer
than is usually the case.
Wore Fine Apparel. 1
.The clothes of the young woman, of
the finest make and in the best taste,
the hat from a Fifth avenue milliner
and the dainty shoes, which were evi
dently Imported from Paris, all pointed
out clearly and Indisputably the social
position of the dead girl.
The appearance at the morgue of the
two women who called to see the body
ln a carriage, which established at once
their position ln the social world, only
made certain the character of the girl
who lies ln the morgue, besides giving
a connecting link, however vague, ln
establishing the Identity of the owner
of the Initials "J. R.,". to whom the last
note of the girl was addressed.
Strike of Machinists on Lake Shoro
Is Called Off.
CHICAGO, Sept. 23. The nine
months' struggle of the machinists and
bollermakers of the Chicago, Lake
Shore & Eastern railroad against a 10
per cent wage reduction Is at an end.
The company announced that If the
unions would call off their strikes It
would reinstate as many of the former
employees as possible at the lower
wages. The result was a stampede of
more than half of the 400 strikers,
which caused fighting and brought out
the police.
The company hired 100 of the old men
and will take on more until full union
crews have been engaged. The strike
breakers will be -discharged.
The railroad, which Is owned by the
Illinois Steel company, announced the
first of the year that It would Inaugu
rate a 10 per cent cut In wages. The
machinists and bollermakers walked
out and the company started to employ
non-union workers. Fifty arrests have
been made by the police for assaults,
forty men have been "slugged," loco
motives have been damaged so that
they could not be run and tracks have
been torn up.

a Bandit.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 23. Com
pelling two clerks to go Into a room at
the point of a revolver to be made pris
oners, a masked man today took a suit
case containing $4400 and records and
papers belonging to the Central Grain
and Stock exchange at 20 Llscndorff
street and then made his escape.
Held Up in Passageway.
P. J. Flynn and H. T. Hearny are
clerks employed by the exchange and
they were carrying the suit case con
taining the goldf silver and papers In
to the office through a passage way ln
the rear of the office when they were
confronted by the robber. His revol
ver caused them to obey his com
mands. Thief Knew Premises.
The thief was hidden behind a par
tition co that he could not be seen un
til a person was within a few feet of
him. He showed perfect familiarity
with the premises, and the police who
are working on the case think they
have a good clue to his Identity.
How He Got in.
It Is customary for these two clerks
to carry the suit case to the safe de
posit department of tho Union Trust
company, Market"- Tind Montgomery
streets, every night and return in the
morning. Before their arrival the
place Is cleaned out by an Italian, and
it was through a door left open by hirn
that the robber slipped In.
Looked Down, a Gun.
As the clerks entered they heard a
command: "Hands up!" They turned
around and saw the robber. He was
wearing a mask made from a white
handkerchief. In which holes had been
cut for the eyes and nose. The re
volver was of large size and formidable
Tied to a Hook.
"March with that suit case to that
step half way down the hall there,"
ordered thc robber. On arriving at
the designated point the clerks wore
instructed to drop the suit case and
then move forward. They were forced
to go into a toilet room, and getting
them there the robber took a piece of
cord and tied their hands to a hook
which had been made In the brick wall
with a large wire nail, which had re
cently been placed there.
"Walked Away With Funds.
"With the clerks tied in the room .ho
robber took the suit case and departed.
Presumably he had some conveyance
near at hand. The two clerks released
themselves after some trouble and no
tified the police of the robbery.

Reports from the East Indicato that
Wolmer, too, has felt tho blow. Ho Is

abandoned Luthcranlsm ln order that tho
wedding might conform to tho wishes of
tho bride's family.

Ten years ago, when a mere boy, tho
noted left-handed pitcher was married at

and of brief duration. Divorce followed,
and tho former Mrs. Welmer took up her

Family Learns of Marriage.
Novor giving thought to the possibility
of such an Incident ln his life, none of tho
Triimbull family asked Welmer if ho had
been married before, and, not appreciating
its significance to a romance, Welmer
mado no reference to It. So It was not
until after tho ceremony that tho family
learned of the true stato of affairs. Slnco
then Wolmer and sho havo exchanged
correspondence, but havo not met.

MUKDEN, Sept. 2-1, 10:40 a. m. Tho mili
tary authorities continue to express the
belief that a battlo will bo fought near
Mukden within a few days, but, on the
other hand, the Chinese profess tho belief
that hostilities are remote.
Russians Uso Balloons.
Tho Russians aro using war balloons
southeast of Mukden to observe the move
ments of tho Japanese. The lino of out
posts established by tho Japanese is so
effcctlvo that even tho Chlneso have been
unable to penetrate It. It Is Impossible,
thcroforo, to say definitely how Marquis
Oyama has disposed his forces.
Kuroki's Position.
It is bollovcd Gen. Kuroki's army
stretches from Bonslhu to Bentslaputzo
nnd tho armies of Gens Oku and Nodzu
from Ycntai along tho high road and rail
road to Shahopu, slxtcon miles south of
Mukden, whllo a fourth army Is moving
from Dzlantchan across tho Da mountains.-
All theso roads converge at Muk
den. Oku Uear Mukden.
Of the four armies, those of Oku and'
Nodzu aro nearest Mukden, and their pro
gress will havo to bo slackened In order to
permit Kurokl and tho flanking columns
time to como up. Meantime Oku and
Nodzu havo command of tho railroad.
Supplies for Japs.
Supplies of grain and ammunition aro
carried from Yental over heavy roads and
oxposed to capturo by Cossack raiders.
There has been ' an Improvement In tho
weather at Mukden, which has been a
great help to tho Japanese.
Not Likely to Contest the Japanese
Advance at Mukden.
ST. PETERSBURG. Sopt. 24. Absenco
of detailed reports from the seat of war,
dcsplto tho Important character of events
that are bollovcd to be developing around
Mukden, leads to tho supposition that Gen.
Kuropatklu may, after all, not seriously
contest tho Japanese advance, and tho
long-expected battle at Mukden may turn
out to be merely a rearguard action oa a
large scalo.
What Sakharoff Reports.
Gen. Sakharoff reports that tho Japan
cso army la moving from Bentslaputze
toward Fu pass, a village six miles .north
east of Mukden and near tho right bank
of tho Hun river. Thc- river at tms point
Is shallow, and probably for tlus reason
tho locality has been selected by tho Jap
anese for crossing.
If Japs Get Fu Pass.
If tho Japaneso gain a foothold at Fu
pass, Gen. Kuropatkln's position at Muk
den will bo Insecure, as the Japanese will
thence be able to threaten the Russian
line of communications
Fu pass Is only twenty miles north of
Bentslaputze, but at tho present rate of
progress tho Japanese will probably occu
py four or five days ln traversing these
twonty miles.
Only One Army Corps.
Tho Russian forco south of Mukden Is
believed to consist of only one army corps,
which is acting as a rearguard and is not
intended to effect a serious reslstanco to
tho Jnpaaieso advance.
Nothing la known at tho Admiralty of
the reported sailing of the Gromobol out
of Vladivostok to capturo a Japaneso
transport, supposed to be a sailing vessel.
