How Terrible Crimes in
Aberdeen Washington
Were Traced
Montesano Wash May 2The
trial of William Gohl for the alleged
murder of Charles Herman Hud
berg way begun here today Gohl
was arrested at Aberdeen the scene
of his alleged crime and hold there
for several days but was removed to
this placo as a precautionary meas
ure public feeling against him being
very bitter The work of selecting a
Jury will probably be somewhat
lengthy because oC the wide publicity
given tho case
Aberdeen Wash May 2Vm
Gohl is charged with the murder in tho
first degree In connection with tho
death on or about December 2 1909
of Charles Herman Hadborg or lInt
berg Gobis name Is also connected
with tho slaying of John Hoffman in
the sworn confession of one Kllngen
borg a sailor who is also under ar
rest In connection with tho crimes
Hoffman and Hadberg were Jackof
nlltradcs about Aberdeen Gohl for
several years prior to his arrest was
agent for tho Sailors union In Aber
To gnin an understanding of the sit
uation which appears to have led up
to the death of Hoffman It js neces
sary to go hack to 1907 when the re
pealed finding of corpses in the wat
ers around Aberdeen led to tbq appel
lation of floater fleet to this aggre
gation of drowned persons
This floater fleet composed of sail
ors in most cases was generally pre I
sumed to have been mon who had been
slugged or drugged or shot and rob
bed In the numerous dives which In
fested the water front of the city
and afterward thrown In > tho Wish
kah river
Tho authorities tried to fasten the
responsibility for these mysterious
deaths but they could obtain no tan
gible evidence They did however
virtually wipe out tho colony of dIves
The finding of mysterious dead men i
ceased with the closing of i lie dives I
About a year afterward Mayor Bonn 1
of Aberdeen vas sojourning at Green >
River Hot springs near Seattle An
other of tho guests was an Aberdeon
saloonkeeper Thb man In a burst I
of confidence Benn alleges told him
that he know enough about Billy Gohl
to send him to the gallows Bpnn as
sociated the reference to GobI with
tho floater fleet and when he re
turned to Aberdeen quietly Instituted
an Investigation and Geo f3 Deane
chief of police patiently pursued tho
investigation for over a year with
out obtaining evidence sufficient to
base a proaecutlou Early this year I
however they gained a trace of a
former Intimate of GobI who goes by
the name of Billy Montana
Mayor Bonn and Chief Deane as
sort that Montana told them Gohl
had a short time previously told him
that Hndbcrg hnd an anchor for a
pillow at the mouth of Indian Creek
Alao that Gohl had said that Hoffman
had been Iput out of business and
that Klingenborg had helped him io
it t
Search confirmed Montanaa rev
elations regarding1 Hadberg Ills rev
el Jong alsQ caused surveillance of I
Klnigpnberp who was on a schoon
er hound for Santa Rosalie TJexIco
Tho master of this craft was asked iw
telccnvDh to brine Kllugenborg back
to Aberdeen which he did and the
sailor was arrested W
Kllngenterg broke down under the
questioning of the Aberdeen police
officials and made a swoln statement
to Prosecuting Attorney Campbell
which in substance asserted that Oohl
had shot Hoffman and sunk his body
in the Wlshkah and that under fear
of death at Colds bands and at
Gobis command Kllngonborg himself
had shot Hadberg to death and that
the body had been sunk with a fifty
pound anchor at the mouth of Indian
The arrest of Gobi was followed by
a tremendous reign of terror In Ab
erdeen Persons who bad been ac
tive in the investigation received
anonymous letters threatening them
and their families with death Citi
zens were followed on the streets by
unknown men and few had the temer
ity to venture forth after dark and
then only when guarded Fearing vio
i lence against Gohl tho authorities a I
day or two < fter his arrest moved him
to Monteeano tho county seat where
I he hag since remained in jail I
Gohl Is a pleasant appearing fel
low highly educated of quick wit and I
absolutely fearless He Is well read
in law and previous to hlfi arrest said i
he Intended to go to Germany to fin j
ish his law course Since his Incar
ceration Gohl has studied Jnw almost I
continuously and willIt is stated I

Astronomers Are to Ask

ing problems to be discussed by ns
tronomero who will gather hero next
August for session of the Interna
tional Association for Solar Research
These scientists will represent nearly
all nations and it Tvlll be their first
meeting slnco tho assembly at Men
don Franco In 1907
The session will ho held at the Car
negie observatory on Mount Wilson
and the astronomers may remain there
for a period of months
Comet tails are said to be produced
by a force of repulsion Inherent In the
aim That is the starting point In the
problem But the scientists want to
satisfy themselves whether those bril
liant appendages aretho result of thq
pressure of the suns light or whether
they are of electric origin or produc
ed by cathodic or other rays
Another of the problems Is to meas
ure the degree of variation In the
amount of boat and light energy the
sun pours into the earth dally As
tronomers no longer regard tho sun
as a solar constaut and one of tho
purposes of tho forthcoming meeting
Is to ascertain as nearly as possible
the relations of sun spots to the vari
ability of sun energy Among tho
scientists who are expected to conic

Dr W S Haines Dr Victor C
I Vaughn and Mrs Logan 0 Swope
The defenses crossexamination of
Dr Hektoen it was thought at tho
opening of the court today would be

Mrs Swope who is financing In tho
main the prosecution of Dr Hyde will
be the last states witness Her tes
timony It is thought will bo reach
ed Wednesday Interest now centers
In her appearance on the stand as It
Is believed her story will be full of
human Interest When Mrs Swopo
gave her deposition recently In a civ
il suit brought by the physicians she
refused to confine herself to answer
Ing tho questions asked her
Tho fight between Mr Hydes attor
neya and Doctors Haloes and Vaughn
will center on the alleged finding of
cyanide of potassium in the vlsccras of
Colonel and Chrlsman Swopo Tho
defense avers this was only an cloy
enth hour resort made by the chem
I ists In order 1 ° support the states
case The charge that cyanldo had
been used by Dr Hyde was not made
until Attorney James A Reed deliv
ered tho opening statement for the
Judge xtshaw today upheld the
alato8 objection to the defenses In
quiry of Dr Ludwig Hektoon If repre
sentatives Dr Hydo did not call
upon him on March 1 and demand
part of the vlsceras of Col Thos II
and ChrSsman Swope
The defense did not request tho
court to appoint commission of med
ical experts to examine the remaining
parts of tho vlsceras of the Swopcs
Scar oh had tho session opened
when Attorney Walsh began an at
tack on export medical testimony with
Dr Hoktoon in the witness chair
Reading from a text book said to
have been written by Doctors Hek
toen and Walter S Haines Mr Walsh
asked the witness If his book did not
advise exports on both aides In a trial
to confer In order to bo able to Im
press tho court and tho Jury
Dr Hoktoen said he never had read
this portion of the text
Armed with scores of medical text
books Attorney Frank P Walsh to
day resumed his crossexamination of
Dr Ludwig Hoktoen in the Hyde mur
der trial
Mr Walsh attacked Dr Hoktoons
testimony part with a text book
which the patheologlst collaborated In
writing Among the things done In
tho autopsy on Col Swope and advised
against by Dr Hektoen In the book
The brain was taken out while froz
en hard
The brain was severed at the base
without the use of a knife and was
cracked In the course of removal
Dr Hektoens book was urgent in
Its warning regarding thawing out a
body with wator The law of Ger
many prohibiting such action was
cited by tho text book
Only the accidental severing of tho
base of the brain prevented his using
a knife fluid tho witness
Tho contents of the bladder were
thrown away The text book said
traces of strychnine wore readily
found In urine
On direct examination the witness
said that ono of Chrlsman Swopes
lungs was congested Today he said
both wore affected
Attorney Walsh grilled the witness
for falling to confer with the de
fenses scientists when the hook said
this was lha proper thing to do
Dooant the book say that exports
are liable to be biased asked Mr
I do not know that it does H
all depends on the experts them
selves said the witness
The question of the vleccras was
again brought up by Mr Walsh He
said ho would be able to show that
the chemists who called upon Dr Hek
toen wore authorized by Mr Hyde to
The state agreed It would not ob
ject to the witness being questioned
about the request for the organs if
this vas done
Dr Hektoen then admitted he had
on March 1 refused tho vlsceras to
the accused physicians experts
On March 20 said the witness At
torney John P McGurdy called upon
him and Dr Halnos in Chicago and
asked for the vlsceras and was re
fused Dr Hektoen said that at that
time he had no parts of the viscerag
Tha witness also admitted he re
fused to toll the attorney anything r
ubout the result of his examination
of the organs I
Didnt you shortly before March 1
receive from the prosecuting attor
ney an order to look for cyanide
naked Mr Walsh
I dont know that I did answered
the witness
About a month before the trial be
gnu you wrote to Mr Conkllng that
prospects for finding cyanide were
looking good
I may have expressed It that way
