Johnson, Aug. 4. Was Miss Amy Shonio,
the lV-year-old factory worker, whose
body was found back of tho cemetery
yesterday afternoon, nfter she had been
missing four days, murdered or did she
commit suicide. Is the question being asked
to-day. The body of the young girl, who
would soon have boon a mother, was
taken to the home of her father at Stowo
for burial to-day.
State's Attorney Tracy repeated to-night
his statement that he was still proceed
ing under the assumption that It was a
case of suicide, and declined o make any
other statement. Dr. B. H. Stone of the
State laboratory at Burlington, who per
formed the autopsy and took the organs
to tho laboratory for analysis, has also
refused to make any statement.
It Is understood, however, that there Is
a theory of murder, though this Is not
based upon any official statement of the
case. Nothing Is understood to have been
found upon or near the body that could
have contained poison, If tho young girl
did take her life that way.

So Says J. J. Bynrd Attorney for Dairy
men' Lengue UnreH State Action
Saratoga Springs, N. Y Aug. 4. Pre
diction that the retail price of milk In
New Tork City will reach 2i or 30 cents a
quart noxt winter, unless the State takes
steps to encourage dairy farmers to raise
more cows, was made yesterday Detoro
the Committee on Resolutions ot the
Democratic Stato Convention by James
J. Byard of Cooporstown, an attorney
for the Dairymen's League and a dele
gate to the convention from Osetgo
County.
Mr. Byard asserted that the only rem
edy was to encourage the raising of heifer
calves by payment of small premiums
and urged the Inclusion In the platform
of a plank declaring for such legisla
tion. He said a largo decrease In the pro
duction of milk was threatened by the
slaughter of the Federal and State Gov
ernments to exterminate bovine tuber
culosis. Mr. Byard estimated that the weed
ing out of tuberculous cattle would
cause a decrease of 30 per cent. In the
number of milch cows In the State
within six months and a decreaso of
50 per cent within 18 months.
The difficulty of replacing the
slaughtered cattle would be Insur
mountable without State aid, Mr.
Byard said. It was nearly Impossible
to buy cows outside the State at a
price at which it would pay to pro
duco milk and tho price of calves food
was so htgh that tho farmer In or
dinary circumstances and In need of
money, sold his holfer calves at the
age of four weeks.
Mr. Byard asserted that this slaugh
ter of heifer calves for food could
bo prevented If the legislators would
pass a bill giving a small bonus for
each ca'.f raised to the age of three
years.
