Tliat is the question that everybody is asking his neighbor in regard to tho Mitchell-Ward murder. Having par tially exhausted the horrors ot the bloody deed itself, all Memphis is on a still hunt for the cause. So far there has been no satisfactory answer given, though tho air is fnll of theories. The attorney-general, it is understood, will proceed in the prosecution on the as sumption that there was a motive more human than that believed in by the public generally; that Alice Mitchell was not inspired by an infatuation for Freda Ward, but by a desiro to avenge herself upon tho Wards for reflections which they had cast upon her, and in consequence of which tho intimacy be tween herself and Freda was broken off. It is claimed that the state's attorneys havo proot to this effect, ami that tlcy will also unearth the man in the case. They have in their possession a largo number of letters which passed between tlte two girls and between members of their respective families in which appear reasons why Alice should have conceived the murder as a measure of revenge and not as a result of mental unbalance. The attorney has tho name of a well known young citizen who alleges that a man followed Alice Mitchell in a buggy Mon day afternoon, and when he saw her ro turning from her trip down tho hill, he put whip to his horse and drovo rapidly away. All efforts to interview Miis Mitchell have failed, but this morning your cor respondent learned from good authority what jiassed between her and her coun sel. On other subjects sho seemed to bo porfectly rational, and did not realize tho enormity of the deed. "I killed Freda," said she, "because I loved her and she refused to marry me I asked her to marry mo three timed, and at last she consented. We wen) going to marry hero and go to St. Louis." "What dkl you intend to do in St. Louis?" asked ono of her attorneys. "Oh, I do not know, but when Freda promised to marry me I was so happy. I 6ent her an engagement ring and sho woio it a time, but when it was returned I was misorable. I could not bear to bo separated from her and resolved to kill her. I would rather sho wer dead than away from 1110." Tho girl then asked one of the lawyers where Freda was. She was told that tho body was at Stanloy & Hinton's. "Oh, mamma," said sho if I could only see her. Please let me go to see her. If I could only lie down by her side I would be so happy." When tho per mission was refused she broke into a torrent of tears, not for having killed Freda, but for tho separation. The let ters that she wrote to Freda are full of the most endearing terms and go to show that tho girl eagerly looked forward to the time when she could make Freda hfir wife. Strange to &y, from what can bo learned Freda lurself seemed to be in fatuated with Alico and willingly as sented to the proposed marriage. The timo was iixed and the affair was to havo been in tho nature of an elopement. Ono thing is certain, Alice Mitchell still thinks sho has done the proper thing in killing Freda Ward and has never real ized how shocking and how horrible her act was. Sho does not feel tho confine ment in jail, but regards it as would a schoolgirl, a slight punishment On other subjects she talks rationally, as she does on tho killing, but for the pecu liar views sho entertains of the proposed marriage. Her case and that of Miss Johnson will be considered by tb grand jury tomorrow. It is learned that Miss Mitchell and Miss Johnson have for some time past taken letters out of tho iwstoffico ad dressed to "Jesse James" and "Fred Ward," Miss Mitchell representing the notorious bandit Tho reason for this caiwr takes its place among tlw other mysteries of the murder.

When I lived in tho Pan handle a few thousand dollars would havo paid for every houso lrom Wich ita Falltt to Hartley a distance of 250 miles, now millions would not do it. I met a man a few days ago on my way from Cold water that was so deep ly in mournine; beoauso ho had not bought property in a county seat in tho Panhandle when it was oheap that he would only oat mutton that como from black snoop. Less than five years ago nothing but a, village called Wichita Falls, no railroad now built through tho Panhandlo soven hundred miles ondi-g at Dcnvor, nothing but grass and cattle roaving whoro wo find Iowa Park, Harrold Voinon, ChiMicotho, Quanah, Chil dress.
