Carey the girl has unfold ed a narrative which, in the opinion of those who are investigating the circumstances of young Bellows' death, supplies strong evidence that the young Chicagoan was murdered. The police have interviewed no less than fifty witnesses, all of whose statements bear more or less upon the case. District Attorney Brown was pro foundly impressed with the reports which were made to him yesterday by Chief Vollmer and Assistant Dis trict Attorney Carey upon their re turn from Sutter Creek. Tn Shadow of Gallows. "Blanche Kerfoot knows enough of the circumstances attending the death of Frank Bellows to send Har ry Kleinschmidt which of themseH-es are crimes.

In her state ment to the police she now avers that Kleinschmidt attacked her. The case, which promises to be highly sensational, will come up be fore the rand jury on Friday next. Girl's Story in Brief. In her statement Miss Kerfoot said: "Harry Kleinschmidt lured me to his room the night after Frank Bel lows met his death, attempted to kill me with poison, but could not force enough of it into my mouth. He took me unconscious to the home of Mrs. Herbert Clark, at 9 Valley St., Oakland, left me there and went away. All that night and the fol lowing day, Mrs. Clark thought, I would surely die. Ever since I have suffered terribly. "Kleinschmidt forced his way in to my room while I was a guest at his familys home, making arrange ments for our wedding, and assault ed me. Tbf-r T left the Kleinschmidt home and 1- *o'©3 our engagement. ''Klemschreidt *o!d- me he would 'fix' Frank Bellows, and Frank was always afraid that Kleinschmidt in tended to kill him.
