about 23 years of age. was found dead [
in a trunk at her home, 1504 Gadsden

Body is Discovered,
Minnie Williams sent word to this
effect to Palm Smith, who lives in
Waverley and who> is an aunt of the j
dead woman. The aunt went to Gads- \
Hpn strpftt to investigate and took Isa-h
[ fcel Boatwright -with her. The Boatwright
woman found the body. The i
trunk was not locked but the outer
clasps were fastened and when she
lifted the lid and tray she discovered i
the body. She ran into the street and
called Policeman Dunlap, who verified i
tier statement and then notified head- j
quarters. :
It is believed that the woman was j
killed Monday night. The body is
in a state of decompsition. After the j'
body had been removed to an under-11
taking establishment, a preliminary i.
examination, was made under tne su- <
pervision of the coroner. Although a
L bloody, ten inch, hawk blade knife was j i
i found in the trunk, it is not believed . 1
that death was caused by stabbing, i
The theory is that a heavy blunt in-J1
strumest was used to crush the wo!
man's skull. The room in which the
body was found was in no unusual ;
disorder and th^re was nothing found j
to indicate that a struggle had taken j
i place. Pa'rl up insurance' policies to :
k t>.e amont of $12" were found amosgi
I the woman's effects.
f Jesse Murphy Suspect.
Jesse Murphy, the suspect, lias beer, j
living with the Williams woman for1 (
two or three years. In 1913 he served |;
an eight months sentence on the j
county chaingang for beating and cut-j1
ting her. An unusual incident relative :'
to the accusation that Murphy killed i
her is the fact that he has been seen :
in the city several times since Mon- j
<Jay, although he had a hackman take '
his trunk to a railroad station Mon- j!
day afternoon. At least three .persons j:
saw Murphy here Wednesday morning.
I The police department and the ]
coroner's office have instigated a far
reaching search for the suspected ne- 1
gTO, having sent telegraphic descrip- 1
tions to every city and town of impor- J
tance in the nearby States. Jesse
"Murphy is 28 pears of age, 5 feet 9 J
inches tall and weighs 130 pounds; he 1
'lias a brown skin, clean snaven am
lhas a geld tooth in front; he is an
easy talker and is of pleasing- appearance.
Information regarding him 1

Norfolk. Va.. Aug. 3.?So far n.i is

after successfully running thro^gJ

today, apparently unaware of the de-j
parture of the big submarine.
It is not believed the Deutschland i
experienced the slightest difficulty in ;
evading the cruisers. Capt Hinsoh of j
the warbound German liner Neckar,.
who directed the departure of r.he
submarine, said today that the under-'
water freighter passed unobserved
within 1C-0 yards c:' a I"nit<\l States
destroyer on no itrality duty abour a
mile orf the capes.
' When we came to a stop at a roint
in the bay I shall not disclose Leer :so
we probably shall have to use the
pla'-e again." ?ai'i Cart. Hinsc-h, '"the
pilot aboard the submarine was taken
off to the Thomas T. Timmins. our
tug. It was then about r> o'clock in
the morning. The submarine was submerged,
so that her machinery and
pumps could not be tested and the
cargo be trimmed, should that be necessary.
She then went down in a!
deep hole in the bay to a depth of 130
feet remaining there for some time, j
''Wihen! she came to the surface;
igain Capt. Koenig came up through
the conning tower and said that everything
was working perfectly. That
pleased U3 as we had thought we1 \
might have had to rearrange some j <
things. <]
"The trial completed, we started on i
down the bay and when no traffic was i;
in sight the DeutschLand took another i
dive while running. She went down ,
until four inches of her periscope j j
wa3 showing. Then I dropped behind : j
to see at what distance the wake of ]
the Deutschland or the foam crest
of the periscope could be seen. Four
hundred yards with glasses I coula
not see a thing.
"The tests having proved that the 1
Deutschland was in perfect condition 1
we went into a place to hide for a 1
while. We were well hidden, too. j1

in finding us.

destroyer was passed in the dark. As
soon as the men on the bridge sighted

watched us closely and looked all
around for the submarine at distance
of cnly a hundred yards. At
the time the submarine decks were
"Later, when r reported to the destroyer
that the Deutschlanri had t
cleared the capes and v.-,is on her!
way to sea. the officers on board seem -j
ed most surprised. They had nGt ob-!

the British and French cruisers off:
shore had not the slighest chance of
finding the Deutschland.'

Capt. Hinsc.li returned to Baltimore

to seek a tow to Baltimore.
In response to questions regarding
the prospects of the Bremen, sister
