Mysterious Murder of Beauti

Aiutoelatea Press Cable to Tke Eveaia«
ParlB, June 27.—All Paris is ex
cited over a mysterious murder, the
victim being a young and beautiful
Breton woman, Ot rather facile'morals,
who is bellved to have been at one
time cm-the stage. A short time ago
she took up her abode in a cottage
at Saint Mande, with a male friend
with whom she had formerly lived, and
who, on his return from Africa re
cently, had sought her out and found
her. After dining with him one eve
ning last week she went out, saying
that she was going to a little party
which, some acquaintances were giving
in Paris, and at two o'clock next
morning she. was noticed passing
through the SUnt Mande gate on her
way back to her dwelling.
The woman went along a broad and,
at that hour, deserted avenue, run
ning parallel to the fortifications, and
soon afterwards a pool of blood as
perceived by a lamp-lighter on the
pavement Folowing' the ruddy track,
the man turned a corner, about fifty
yards frona which he found a corpse,
lying in a street adjoining the avenue.
The body had been divested of most
of its clothing, Including corset and
Stockings, and there was a terrible
gash in the neck.
The lamplighter hurled off to the
police at Vlncennes, who arrived
promptly on the scene of the tragedy,'
and soon afterwards the corpse was
identified by a publican who gave the
address ot the frieQd with whom the
unfortunate young woman had been
living. The friend, who had retired
early to rest, and was sleeping sound
ly when the police called at his cot
tage, lost no time Jh accompanying
them to the spot, and he quickly hoted
that, besldes the clothes which were
missing,: a purse containing a con
siderable rfum and some Jewelry, which
the murdered woman invariably wore.
Though the police have worked
diligently on the case, they are still

Aaaaciated Preu to The Bveaias Tteca.
Chicago, 111., June 27.—Conflicting
reasons are given for the postpone
ment of the convention of the Indus
trial Workers of the World, which
was to have assembled in this cit£
today. The organization, which was
founded by Eugene V. Debs, is of
strong socialistic tendencies and has
met with bitter opposition from the
American Federation of Labor and itt
The reason given by the organiza
tion for the postponement of the con
vention is the uncertainty of the out
come of the trial of Moyer, Haywood

are charged with being implicated in
the murder of former Governor
Steiinenberg of Idaho. In an official

fleers say that if the accused leaders
of the Western Federation of Miners
are acquitted, the convention. "un

ever held by the workin class in this
country." The oppnents of the In
dustrial Workers, on the other hand,
deolare that this high-sounding de
claration is all "bosh," and that the
real reason for the postponement of
the convention is that the leaders are
not willing to disclose the weakness
of the organization at this critical

Harrisburg, Pa., June 27.—The
Democratic state convention is in ses
sion here to nominate candidates for
governor, lieutenant governor, auditor
general and secretary of Internal af
fairs. For the first time in may years
the party has virtually shaken itself
free from the control of the state ma
chine and the attendant corporation
influences, and appears to be in a
position to make a free choice of
candidates irrespective of the dictation
of Col. James M. Guffey, national com
mitteeman, and his party leaders.
Surface indications point to a strong
sentiment in favor of indorsing Lewis
Emery, Jr., the gubernatorial candi
date of the Lincoln party. If such
action is taken, strong efforts will be
made to overthrow the republicans at
the coming election through a fusion
of the democrats, prohibitionists and
Lincoln party followers. It is prob
able that the platform will come out
strongly In denunciation of the Stan
dard Oil company, the Pennsylvania
railroad and Senator's Penrose's com
