of a I'eraon Unknown.
ELYRIA, O., May 0 ? At the end of a
rather complete investigation into the
cause of the death of Agatha Reichlin,
who was murdered last Thursday
night, Coroner French of this county
late last evening gave as his conclusion
the verdict, "That Agatha Reichlin
came to her death from wounds inflict
ed by a stone in the hands of a person
The investigation was held in the
presence of a large and deeply interest
ed crowd of witnesses and spectators.
The conclusion reached by the coroner
resulted in the freeing of Father Wal
ser from confinement later in the even
The witnesses included policemen
who had been called to the Reichlin
home at 1 :30 o'clock Friday morning
and Caslmir Reichlin, a brother of the
murdered girl. Rev. Charles Reichlin,
another brother, testified. The consen
sus of the testimony of the witnesses
was favorable to Father Walser's
claim of innocence and In support of
the theory that a burglar or some other
desperate man had committed the
crime. Captain Ivetehum of the police
testified that the bloodhounds did not
pay any more attention to Father Wal
ser's bed than to the othe> beds in the
Father Wnlner Discharged.
LORAIN, O., May 0.-Father Ferdi
nuud W nested last Saturday in
connection with the murder of Aghtha
Reichlin, was brought to tills city from
the county jail at Elyria and dis
charged from the charge of murder
which was placed against him at that
time. Mayor King went through the
formality of reading the warrant for
Walser's arrest, and his attorney, E. G.
Johnson, entered a plea of not guilty.
Mayor King then stated that, as the
prosecuting attorney had remarked,
there was not sufficient evidence to
hold the accused, and "I have nothing
to do but discharge him from custody.
The crime that was committed on the
1st day of May was the most atrocious
crime ever committed in the city of Lo
rain. When Father Walser was arrest
ed Saturday public feeling against him
ran high in the community, and on ac
count of the excited condition of the
public the prosecutor and mysell
thought arrest of the priest necessary
for his protection, that he might be
safe from any attack that the excited
populace might make upon him. Who
killed Agatha lteielilln 110 one knows
but the murderer himself and his God.
No one is more pleased than I am that
there Is no evidence to warrant the de
tention of the accused. I hope whoever
committed the crime may yet be pun
ished) The city officers will not feel
their duty done, but will continue the
inquiry until the murderer of Agatha
Reichlin may he properly avenged."
Father Walser arose and, with mois
tened eyes, addressed Mayor King as
"You cannot say a word against me.
You have hurt me a great deal. Agatha
Iteicliliu is the last person I would
have killed. I can't kill anybody. I
couldn't kill a chk'ken. I thank the offi
cials for their courtesies extended nje.
Especially would 1 thank Sheriff Salis
bury, as he alone treated Me as a noble
gentleman could have done."

Albert Yonug, president of the
Teamsters' Union, the most powerful
labor anion in Chicago, has resigned,
and says he will nest week accept a
position as driver at |20 a week. He
savs hia aotion was prompted by the
bickerings in labor circles. Every
little nnion counted npon the team
sters to pnll it oat of the bole daring
a strike. Yonng was elected presi
dent offctlie anion when it had six
members in 1902. Now it has 40,000
members, and is the dictator of all
labor troubles in Chicago. Recently,
however, many jealousies have arisen,
and the teamsters have refased to
have anything to do with the affairs
of outsiders.
Three big flax mills in Paterson
may be forced to close down owing to
a strike which began a week ago of
seventy-five boys employed by the
Barbour Flax Spinning Company, of
which Colonel William Barbour, who
ran for Congress last fall, is the bead.
The strike has spread to two other
mills, and has resulted in hundreds of
boys and girls leaving their work out
of sympathy for the strikers. The
boys and girls employed by the Dol
phin Manufacturing Company on
Spruce street left their work in a body
yesterday and joined ranks with the
Barbour strikers. The boys nrmed
themselves with stont sticks and
patroled around the mills, persuading
all other boys to keep away.
