MRS. DONAHUE'S BODY
FOUND IN A SWAMP
Two Boys Discover It by Following Direc
lions of a Spiritualist
A San Francisco Mystery Being Unraveled Doubts oi
the Manner of Iter Death Removed hut the Identity
of the Murderer Not Yet Established.
San Francisco, Ajg. 30. The body
of Mrs. Alice L. Donohue, who disap
peared from her home in Emeryville
the night of June 11, was uncovered
today hv two boys, who independent of
the rigid police investigtaion, followed
the directions of a spiritualist who
claimed he had located the spot. The
remains were so badly decomposed
they were almost beyond identification
and lay within ten feet of where a
portion of the woman's clothing were
unearthed yesterday, in a shallow
grave on a marsh, almost beneath the
factory of the Western Furniture
Manufacturing company, two blocks
from the Donohue home.
Developments indicate that the wo
man met death the night of her dis
appearance, but the first examination
contributed no clue. The police to
night have in custody Gus Arkell, de
clared to be an acquaintance made by
Mrs. Donohue during the racing sea
son last winter. Arkell Is said to have
had possession of a brooch worn by
Mrs. Donohue. This was not regarded
as of great importance. The arrest
was due more, the police say, to the
fact that he offered possible explana
tions of the woman's disappearance
long before the search of the Ktnery
ville swamp was undertaken. The
body when found was enveloped in
kimono undergarments, together with
slipirrs and a few moments later was
Identified by her husband.
Mrs. Parsons, the woman whose
psychic powers are given neighborhood
credit for a partial solution of the '
mystery. Is said to have declared more !
than once that she was consulted by I
Mrs. Donohue and on each occasion
she foretold a calamity to the woman
or her husband. The theory brought
most forcibly to police attention has
to do with the accounts of a m"te- j
rious stranger who it is believed fol
lowed Mrs. Donohue home on several
occasions at night, and who Is said to
have been surprised while prowling
around the premises.

Mrs. Donohue was a semi-invalid,
aged 40. Mrs. Donohue claimed the
protection of Mrs. E. Verra, a neighbor,
four nights prior to her disappearance.
The neighbor is said to have heard her
tapping at the window of her bed
chamber the night of the disappear
ance, but was too frightened to admit
Mrs. Donohue. as she had heard her
shadow had again trailed her home.
From this the police conclude that
Mrs. Donohue, who disappeared while
her husband was at the Elks lodge,
was attacked, choked or beaten, either
within or just outside of her home and
the body was dragged to the spot
where It was found.
Arkell Is held" on suspicion of con
nection with the crime and is being
sweated tonight. Arkell is 55 years old.

Desolation of Home During
Absence of Family
Deputy Adams Makes Start
ling Disclosures Wagon
load ot Goods Recovered.
One of the most sensational and
puzzling cases of wholesale house rob
bery that the sheriffs office has had to
unravel, was bared to the light yester
day and three little girls of ages
ranging from ten to twelve years were
summoned to court on warrants Issued
out of Justice Johnstone's office as
nrellminary to a thorough Investigation
by the authorities. The developments
of the past twelve hours however point
to the implication of older parties and
the fixing of the crime on the respon
During the absence of J. W. Cover
dale and family during the last two
weeks their residence, located in Pat
rick addition east of Phoenix and on
the canal north of the Tempo road, has
been burglarized and contents to the
value of over $1000 have been carted or
carried away. A portion of the valu
ables have been recovered, about $500
worth but there arc still many things
missing which will probably be located
When the sensational discoveries
were made Deputy Sheriff Jeff Adams
assisted by D. G. Coverdalc. a son, set
to work on the mystery and yesterday
afternoon on a search warrant found
and recovered a delivery wagon load
ftf goods from the house of the Cole
mans residing in the east part of the
city. Coleman is employed at the San
ta Fe round house. Among the con
tents recovered besides clothing and
everything that a residence usuallv is
adorned with, was considerable jewtlry
as follows: four fin.pi, 1 spectacle
case, 3 hat pins, 2 stick pins, 2 bJt
buckles, 6 broaches, 1 pair cuff but
tons, 1 puff box, 1 silver pin tray. 1
hand painted plate, 1 necklace, 3 silver
bracelets, 4 stick pins, etc.
The first hint of the robbery was
had from a little boy who told the son
D. G. Coverdalc, that he had seen
some young ladies coming out of his
fathers house. Mr. Coverdale at once
looked Into the matter and It was
found that every room, -closet, cup
board, nook and corner of the home
stead had been ransacked and the con
tents carried away. Every drawer and
box had been opened and the house
had been turned topsy turvy and up
side down from one end to the other.
It was a most desolate scene.
Deputy Sheriff Adams who was
placed on the trail of the marauders
had a tangled skein to unknot, one of
the most peculiar cases-so far that the
authorities have come across. After'
ferreting about ho located the house
where the goods had been taken. Some
of the property was turned over but
on demand of Mr. Adams that they
must produce more which ho knew
they had or else he would search the
house under the wurrant the Coleinans
wrought out a large quantity of stuff,
which was loaded in a delivery wagon
and taken to the sherifr s office.
A pitiable part of the whole affair
was made necessary to delve deeper
Into the robbery. The two little Cole
man girls, Gladys and Ethel aged ten
and twelve years were taken to the of
fice of Justice Johnstone and closely
questioned. It was suspected that they
were the two seen by the little boy
coming from the Coverdale house.
Roth little ones told the same story.
They not only told it nrtlessly and
clung to it but an hour and hairs
grilling, probing from every conceiv
able angle, failed to change or to re
veal any contradictory statement to
what had already ben related. Justice
Johnstone was completely nonplussed
for a solution.
The story related by the little girls
is about as follows. They said that on
Friday night another little girl about
their own age, by the name of Delight
DuBess living In their neighborhood,
had told them that they had in their
home two boxes of things which be
longed to a sister who had died of
pneumonia, and that her mother did

NORMAL HEIGHTS, San Diego, California, on terms such
as you will seldom find provided you have more land

If you have a nice 10-acre tract, improved, so that it ha3

This place consists of a large lot 50x400 with a nine
room modern house, new and strictly up-to-date. It is
only two blocks off the car line and less than three blocks

this summer a rental of $420 per year for the place and

not want to keep the dead child's
things and would give them to the two
Coleman girls. They said she went
Into the house and brought them out
under her arms and that they took
them home and told their parents how
they had been given them and the rea
son for the goods being given away.
The little Coleman girls also said that
the other girl had said they had three
more boxes of things which they
would give them belonging to her sis
ter. The father of the Coleman girls was
present during the Inquiry and said
that that was the story which he had
been told by his daughters. Deputy
Adams then took the older of the two
girls and went In search of the little
DuBess girl who was found at the
camp meeting grounds. When con
fronted by Gladys Colei lan she denied
the story In toto, said she hstd never
given the boxes to the other girls, and
knew nothing at all of the matter. The
two families were not acquaintances.
It was further learned that the sister
who died of pneumonia was a myth.
The parents of the DuBess p rl were
very indignant that the story had been
told connecting their little girl with
A puzzling feature was the state
ment made by the little daughter of a
prominent county official who sfiemed
in no way concerned In the matter ex
cept as having overheard a conversa
tion, between the little Coleman chil
dren and the other girl. She said that
Delight DuBess had told the other two
girls when they were playing together
about the two boxes and that she had
seen her bring them out under her
arms and give them to the two girls.
This practical substantiation of the
first story told by the Coleman chil
dren threw the solution again In the
shadow and not easy as at first
When asked If he had accepted the
explanation of his little girls concern
ing the goods brought Into their home
without investigation Mr. Coleman
said he had and that was the way he
accounted for them being found there.
It was pointed out that the little girls
could not have carried so many things
In the boxes and so few trips. As far
as the children are concerned it Is
thought by the authorities that they
will come clear of complicity In the
ca-se and what ever part they played
was innocently done. -
It is also said that some small boys
were seen about the Coverdale resi
dence a short time ago. They were en
gaged in eating pomegranates, but
went away when the children who saw
them passed by.

Atlantic City, Aug. 30. But four
times in fifty years has this city been
so tightly closed and the liquor laws
so closely observed as today.. Even
the best known patrons could not se

mation last week containing a threat
to send troops to the seashore in the

they would appeal to the legislature

hope of securing relief. Up to a late

is one of much practical importance,
since yellow pine, which is by far the
most important species of that re

the trying climatic conditions, par
