Al! day long S_erift Gallon snd hii deputies have dragged Ecorse creek and questioned resident* in tbe down-river district of Detroit in hopes of finding some clew to tbe idenli'y of the decapi tsted, armless, and legless body of ibe girl found in the stream early yesterday morning, but their ed irts have ai yet been in vain. It is thought that the torso, wbich waa securely sewn in a weighted gunny sack, may have been thrown into the water ia De'roit and carried down tbe river by the current until it reached the' creek. Tho one clew of ihe police has been shattered by tbe finding of Hattie Hochs adt.

The county physicians feel certain tbat the body bad only been in the water a few daya, and tbe age cf the victim is estimated to be between 20 auri 22 years. When shown the trunk, the medical mei were visibly surprised at the skill with which the limbs, arms, and bead were cut nfl. Tbe flfnh ls little mangled, and tbe cnttlng shows the work of an exper:. Alter examining the body, both physicians gave it as their opinion that the t'irsr) is that rf a married wom? an, whose height was about 5 feet 6 inches. ASSAULTED BY A NEGRO.

He grappled witb Miss Mattox rho sirueg'ci. desperately for some lime, finally wresting ber^-lf Irom his clutches, Tbe young lad; lied home and spread ihe alarm, a posse being qiickly organiz? ed. Tbe men followed the trail of the negro and after pursuing bim for several ii mrs overtook the fugitive as he was crossing Staunton river, firing a volley of shots at bim. The negro's hat was shot efl his head but he continued his purney, disappearing behind the clflt into the fore*'.. OTHERS WILL JOIN HIM.

Ii .li re he left he placed in tbe bands of tbe district attorney a statement in wbich he alleges that other county officers and persons in tbe employ of the county are equally guilty with him.

It the dis? trict attorney does not push these charges there era friends ot mine here who will. "I shall not appeal my case because I am down and out.
