Belief in Capital That He Is to Aid O'Shaughnessy
in "Verbal Representations-Does Not Call on
President Upon Arrival From Vera Cruz-Re
fuses to Make Any
MEXICO CITY, Nov. 7. If John Lind, special en
voy representing President Wilson, returned' to Mexico
City at the request of General Huerta, his early actions to
day did not indicate it.
Lind, with Captain Burnside, military aide of the Vera
Cruz consulate, arrived here today and went at once to the
same hotel where Lind had quarters during his first stay in
th capital. Nelson O'Shaughnessy, American charge
d'affaires, called on Lind immediately and they were, in
conference several hours. Lind refused to rrjake any state
ment, but he did not visit the national palace nor did he
receive any Mexican officials.
It is conjectured here that Lind was sent back' to Mex
ico City by theState Department to back up O'Shaifgh
nessy in the "verbal representations" he is making to
Huerta in an effort to persuade the dictator to resign.

While the report Is not confirmed and

mystery surrouhding the disappear-
ance of Martin Kinsell. an ajiedandl11
well-to-do boatman on the Chesa-v
peake and Ohio canal, who disap
peared at Big Fool, this county, on
December 10, 1906, and was believed
to have been murdered for his money,
after seven years seems to have been
solved by the reported discovery of
his skeleton in a corner of a 'barn
yard on the old Squire T. Belt John
son farm, about a mile from Big Fool.
The remains, it is said, have been
identified by means of a pocietbook
containing Kinsell's name which was
found in the clotWng. The authori
ties refuse to either confirm or deny
the statement.
Bones Ari Re-buried.
When asked concerning the unearth
ing of the mystery today State's At
torney Scott M. Wolflnger replied,
"Nothing doing."
According to the information of th6
discovery of the sksleton. it was found
under a manure pile by farmhands
while they were cleaning up the barn
yard recently. At the bottom of the
pile they came upon a low mound,
which excited their curiosity, and dig
ging into it. they found the sksleton
of a man. The flesh was gone, but the
clothing was partly intacj. After re-
mnvlmr the bones, the clothing was
searched and the pocketbook, said to
bear Kinsell's name, was found. It
was empty, bearing out the theory that
Kinsell had been robbed.
It is not known If the sksleton show
ed signs of how Kinsell met his death.
The bones were relnterred and tho
pocketbook preserved.
When Kinsell. who was a veteran and
a "pensioner, disappeared, he had over
J10O in his pockets. He visited Funk
houser's store and Tlce's saloon on the
night of his disappearance, and was
last sen going toward his home. No
tmre of him was ever found afterward.
though the entire neighborhood searched
searcnea every spoi ior miies arounu,
and dragged the Big Pool and the Po
tomac river for weeks.
The mystery kept the county in a
stat eof excitement for months, and the
authorities tried hard to find the body
and clews to the supposed crime, but
failed. Kinsell was married, and left a
widow and daughter.
