NO CLEW FOR AUTHORITIES. Myslerr Eeseinbles the Barring ton Case Officials Find Brok en Oar and Evidence of Struggle for Life. The findlne of the body of an unidenti fied man in Cree Coeur Lake Thursday night by C. G. Treadway of No. EH2 Washington avenue and W. A. and John Hart of No. 17 Portland plaoe revealed to the St. Louis County authorities yes terday what la probably a murder. Some time within the last week, accord ing to Doctor Otto Koch. Coroner of SL Louis County, a well-dressed and appar ently prosperous man was murdered and robbed, after which his body was thrown Into the lake to hide all evidence of the crime. The murder Is one of the most mjsterl ous that ever occurred in tho county, and Is similar In several respects to the fa mous Barrlngton-McCann case, for which Frederick Seymour Barrington has been sentenced to hang. The Jury In the Har rington case concluded that McCann had been lured to the Bonflla quarry, where his body was found, and then murdered. The present victim was probably lured to Ctsvb Coeur Lake by his assailant. The wounds from which the two men died were almost In the same place of the face. Both bodies laid in tlio water about the same length of time, and both were In the same decomposed state when taken out That the unidentified man was not sub dued without a desperate struggle Is the i opinion of the Coroner and tho Jurors who viewed the 1-odr. Four jasged wounds on the right side of his head made with some blunt Instrument, each by a sep arate blow, told the story ot the fury of the attack upon him and the valiant fight that ho made to protect himself. Some of the suspender buttons on his trousers worn by the mjrdered man were tom off, one with the 'goods, supposdlv In the deadly struggle with his antagonist BROKEN OAR FOUND. A broken oar of a skiff, found by Will Johnson, a negro, with blood and black hair on tho paddle end. Is thought by Doc tor Koch to have been the weapon used in killing tho stranger. On the oar was Inscribed the nam of Jacob Studt. Jr. Studt Is the manager of a park at Creve Coeur Lake that bears his name and rents 'boats to his pitrons. but has no recollection of. tho person who rented the boat that contained this par ticular oar. The body was found In the northern end or the lake, amid a clump of water Hltles and about tbrco quarters of a mile from tho terminus of the Transit line. Th wounds consisted of a gash over the occipital ridge on the right side of the head, another about four inches above tho right ee, ono and three-fourth Inches long, in addition to two other cuts, one of which extended almost back to the right ear. Treadway and the Harts, as soon as they discovered the body, notified Deputy Constable George Walters, who rowed to the place with George Herbee. This was about 7.30 o'clock In the evening. Tying a rope around the body they towed It to the opposite bank at the place where tho Dripping Springs run Into the lake. Wal ters stayed with the'body all night await ing the arrrial of the Coroner, who was not notified of the discovery until yester day morning. That robbery was the motive for the murder was presumed oy the Coroner and Jurors, from the fact that three out of four of his trousers pockets were turned Inside out The fourth was not disturbed, but it did not contain any money. In the watch pocket of the trousers a paper dol lar was found This was the only article of value on the body. A white linen handkerchief with the letter "SI" worked In ono comer and the trade marks on the dead man's collar, shirt and shoes are eome of the marks by which the county officers hope they ma be able to get a clew as to his identity and thereby obtain trace of bis assailant. The collar was a "Keokuk" brand, three-ply and No. 11 In sise. The shirt, a white negligee, with small black crosses and detud blocks, bore the. trade mark of Washer Bros, of Fort Worth and San Antonio, Tex. The shoes boro the "Wear Well' trade-mark. The shoes were black, lac, of an Improved quality ot leather and about No. 6 In size. DESCRIPTION OF MAN. The dead man was about 5 feet E or 6 Inches tall, weighed about 110 pounds, had an oval face, blue eyes, was dark complexloncd, small nose, short neck, dark hair and a black mustache, most of which had fallen out on account of being In the water. Doctor Koch estimated his age at between 30 or 35 years. He had two large upper front Jaw teeth. He wore black and gray woolen 'trous ers, buckled In the back, white suspenderr with black stripes, white balLripgan un derwear. Two collar buttons were found In his shirt, one of pearl, the other gold plated, with th Inscription. "Kreroents Plate" on the base. His cuff buttons were gold-plated, but were not mates. One was embossed with a four leaf clover, the pther with an oak leaf. A blue four-in-hand tie completed his apparel. Neither coat vest nor a hat were found, although the Deputy Constable and Jurors searched carefully around the shore where the body was found. The Jurors Impaneled by the Coroner were H. L. Boltman, John Galen, John Evans, A. S. Batman. W. A. Rotcrts and Henry Herbe. After taking Walters's tes timony tho Inquest was adjourned until next Monday, as the Coroner wants the testimony of- the negro 'Johnson, who was not atrnis home yesterday afternoon. A subpoena was Issued for him. Johnon gave ihe broken and bloody oar to Clinton Eitcrle. a bartender at Creve Coeur Lake, who turned it over to Walters. Coroner Koch took it home with him last night to nuke a more mi nute examination. The Coroner nlso hopes for other ad ditional cvldt-nce next Monday, but so far he has no tangible clew upon which to warrant the Issuance- of subpoenas.

From a reliable source the Associated Press hears that sharp fighting has oc curred near Mukden, resulting In tho Japanese driving in General Kuropatkin's outposts. Important dispatches have been re ceived and transmitted to the Emperor. They are believed to confirm the As sociated Press Information. The General Staff, however, is unable at present to go beyond the positive nssuranco that thu main Russian Army is still at Mukden. SAKHAROFF REPORTS JAPANESE REVERSES. General Sakharoff reports that between September IS and 23 there were several skirmishes In the Yentai region, all oi which resulted favorably to the Russians In view of the fact that advices have been received from the Russian Consulate at Chcfoo. saving the Japanese aisaullH on Port Arthur, September 20 to 26. were successfully leaten off, the authorities at the War Ofllce discredit the Chcfoo re port that the Japanese have captured tho main forts at Port Arthur. The Informa tion of the War Ofllce proves that the Japanese losses during the niege have been 45 CT0 killed or wounded. GRAND DUKE NICHOLS MAT SUCCEED ALEXIS. The likelihood of the appointment ot Grand Duke Nichols Nlcholaievltch as Commander In Chief Is Increasing. The Associated Press learns that the Grand Duko has Informed the officers of the reg iment of dragoors of which he 13 the hon orary Colonel, of the probability of his going to the far East adding that he would take the rczlrcent with him as his body guard.

With the hope expressed in a strong resolution that the concrete result of the Universal Congress of Law era and Ju rists raKht be the organization of an In ternational congress -vhlch would be permanent -md which would carry on the work so splendidly begun, the half thou sand delegates were dismissed irom Fes tlval Hall vestcrday afternoon by the president Mr. Justice Brewer.- ( It was the common consent that the prime purpose of the congresstwhlch, as always stated, was tho bringing together of liwjera and Jurists from all parts of the world for the purpose of -Jxclianging views on trie principles and methods of the correct administration of justice and the establishing of closer relations and nsooclatlons between members of the pro fession upon v.hlch the administration de nenrf.s. had been realized even besond the anticipation of those who had been the formulators of the movement Mcved by the wonderful success of the congress, It was but natural that the more enthusiastic should desire to perpetuate Its work, and from these irn came the resolution, wilcli ss ""''"'i,i 53 follows: "That thlf congress, r"- "y-ing the lm nnrtar.ee of promoting ' '" ": intercourse between lawvers and joists of different nations, to the end that by harmonious ei fort they may labor efficiently for the Im provement of the law and the mainte nance of International peace, request the American Bar Association to take such tops as are necessary to organize a per manent association ot lawyers, represent ing the different nations of the world, which shall meet at intervals to discuss legal questions of public Interest, and tint these resolutions be transmitted to the secretary of' the American Bar Associa tion." WAS INTRODUCED ERLY. The resolution was Introduced early in the congress and had been referred to the Committee ot Nations, who reported it to the congress yesterdav morning. Some opposition developed on the part oi those members of the congress who at the samo time were members of the International Law Association, who held that the latter organization filled all the requirements of tho resolution. The question was left oin until the aft ernoon session, and James Hngerman, the retiring president of the American Bar Association, spoke in favor of Its adoption. He told of the labors of the American Bar Association In co-opratlon with tho Exposition officials" to make the congress a success, and spoke of Us splendid re sults. Ho held that it would not be proper to allow the fruit of Its libora to be mere ly the publication of tho addresses made and the transactions, but Fild that It should be but the beginning of a perma nent organization -vhlch would have wide spread Influence In the vcars to come. The discussion became lively over the question and was participated In by Wal ter S. Logan and Everett P. Wheeler of New York City: F. M. Iluffaker of Vir ginia City, Nev., and John M. Drjden of Kearney, Neb. When the resolution was submitted to a vote there were two or three scattering votes In the negative, and amid general satisfaction, especially among the foreign contingent the organi zation of a permanent body which will dato its Inception from the Louisiana Pur chase Exposition, was given Into the care of the American Bar Association.
