DANVILLE, VA., .lune 29.?The body of
Mies Pauline Edwards, sixteen years of
age, was found In a creek near her homo
in the county yesterday afternoon. Thoro
was every indication that she had been
first assaulted and then murdered.
Marks, presumably made by human fin?
gers, were found on her neck. In her
hand was discovered a piece ot cloth,
which Is bellP.vod to have been a piece
of tho coat worn by her assailant. The
discovery of tho body wns made by 8
farm hand, whose route to his home from
Ills work lay through the field through
which Ihe ?reek ran. Th? girl had not
bppn missed from her home when the
family was niorlp aerina Interi with the,
fnct that her dead body was lying in the
The young woman's clothing was con?
siderably torn, and ??very Inrlli-ntlon of
foul play was apparent. Tho sod on the
bank <>f the stream was trampled as If
tbe girl had made a desperate fight for
her life and honor. No reason can bo
assigned for, the murder oth?-r than that
tho srlrl was first nssaulteil and then
i-burkod Into the stream and held there
until drowned. It Is believed by thn
family that tho girls assailant was well
known to her; otherwise thero had been
no necessity for the killing.
There has been no development in tho
caso to-day. Communieatiui'S troni Chat?
ham are to tho effect that the officiais
thon.) havo not been notified of the trag?
edy, No arrests havo been made, and
there are no elites thnt would lead to a
possible arrest, unless the piece of cloth
clutched in tho fingers ot tho ?lend girl
muy bo construed as such.
The affair Is shrouded In mystery. The
opinion of tho girl's relatives Is that the
assault, if assault was committed, was lis?
some one well known to her, ami tho
murder was resorted to to escape penalty
of tho crime.
Miss Edwards was the hollo of the neigh?
borhood In wheh she resided; The matter

news that the Japanese have been
completely successful' in their.
campaign in Manchuria and are
now in a position either.to follow,;

demoralization wrought by his re?
cent defeats warrants such a

will probably land at Possiet Bay
and strike northwest to thfe rail?
road from Harbin to Vladivostok.

that there will be a close invest?
