Who Murdered an En

Ranch
Santa Rosa Cal Aug 5So close
I > linked is the chain of evidence
connecting Henry Yamachi with the
Kendall murder mystery that District
r Attorney Lea late hist night Issued
a statement formally charging the
Japanese boy with the triple crime
But that one frail youth alone
ci uld have dispatched the father
iiMther and stalwart son Is held by
tLc otficlals to be an untenable theoiv
and they are acting on the supposi
tion that friends of Ynmachi who
joineJ him last year In tho feud which
t no Japanese tanbark peelers carried
on with the Kendalls on the Starbuck
ranch aided in the perpetration of
the wholesale murders and in the dls
position of the bodlos
A statewide search for Yamach
is now in progress and the officials
of this county are rounding up all
ho Japanese known to have been a =
w ainted with the boy
The fact that the Kendalls dog
a shaggy blapk shepherd followed
Yamachi to Oakland wither the ac
cused went to visit the Starbucks
owners of the ranch and to Mr Star
1 nek to talk incoherently of putting
the Kendall away is expected t >
insist In the apprehension of the Jap
anese as the dog is thought to be
still with him
following tho discovery of a worn
na mangled torso believed to bo
that of lrs Ura Kendall in a ravine
near the Kendall home yesterday
Ft archers later In the afternoon found
close by tho spot the lower part of
a leg and a foot both gruesome relics
being blackened by fire Whether
they were parts of the limbs of a
pan or woman could not bo deter
mined
Mrs Kendall Is supposed to haC
tMMi murdered while reclining on the
rot which stained with blood was i
found yesterday on a veranda of tin
house A few feet away on the
gloundl near the porch blood Btaius I
Indicated that the womans body had
boen dragged from the cot by the

That robbery was a sequel of the
