NRS.CHARf.TOBI The police of Como, Italy. are coii vinced that Porter Charlton is alive, They claim t.> have indiaputable evidence that he was seen on the even ing of tho day the body of M i s. Marj S.oit Castle Charlton, was foiind in Lake Como. Tbat would eliminate th.' theory of a double tiiurder, and th. police do not believe that Charlton committed auicide. The investigatioii of the murder sbifted yeaterday toan analyais of the manner ol the killing. It is now believed that Mrs. Cbarlton was attacked in an upper cbambcr of their viHa and that th.- lir-t bloW was -truek wi h at. rra eotlas'atu. Ue which Ihe arti I had nanied "bo\e." I'ice.d t igether by experts ill evidence gatbetuig, a piueiblo atory of the violi n: icene was evolved. Accord ing to ilii- tbere was a dinner in the villa during which much wme was diuiik. The police do not profess to say who tbe dinera, other than Mra. Cbarlton, were, bul the light that fol lowed i i.Bdently attributed in part to a hr.iiu inflamed with drink. li i- -aid that a .piarr.l occurred and that th.' Woman was -truek on thehead witbthe statuette receivingawound from wbich th.' blood flowed freely. With ihe bloa tbe statuette waabroken intoa tbouaand piecea, M' . Charlton a|)rH-ar.s to bave Bed to thechamber above, s.-eking refuge iu her bed, where tbe aheeta were sat urated with her blood. While still on her feet. inveetigatora say, ahe waa str.nk again and fell.h rhead dropping upon a pillow, wlu. h bean a large red itain. Prostrate upon the bed, the woman, it is imagined, received aix other blowa which rendered her inaen sible and apoaretitly quite lifeleM. The wall ofthe bedrootn beaving red staina and the eondition of the room generally leave no doubt of what had been going on there. The stair- and the walls adjoining are stained Indicating, ihey say. that after having been made un conacious Mrs. Charlton waedragged through the room and down the Btatrs lo the ground floor and there plaeed iu the trunk,which was 1 iter weight -d and sunk in I.ake Como. roWGRBMION II* The Benate yesterday paeaed the conserration bill, an sdministration measore, authorixing the president to make withdrawals of puhhe lands for conaervation uses.
