St. Louis, Jan. 12. The police of this
city have suddenly been confronted by one
of the most mysterious cases they ever tried
to solve. A man named Steve K. Wilsko
pplied at a, boarding place, 1413 Olive
street, for a room, finally engaging a nsmt
for a week, paying therefor in advance.
He then, left the house, returning late in
the afternoon and going instead of to his
own room to one on the same floor occu
pied by. Mis Josie Stevenson. Late last
night a man called at the house and asked
to see Miss Stevenson. Going to her room
to call her the landlady found the door
open. Miss Stevenson was lying on the
floor dead wiih a htiUcthole through her
forehead. Wilsko Was on the bed, some
six feet distant. thot twice through the
heart. Betweeu the two on the floor was a
revolver, all five Chambers of which were
ludiealioaw of Houbte Murder.
Tlie first theory was that a murder had
been followed by suk-iile, but after an ex
amination of the mora and the wounds the
police say that neither of the dead persons
could have fired the fatal s-hots. The two
additional sl:ots from the revolver were
tired at the man, but missed. Although
there were several H-rsons in the house-
on Isrth the some flistrand the floor above
all uftcrnoon no one heard any shooting
or unusual noise. The man who called
or Miss Stevenson luis disapiieatvd and
cannot Is found. !iis name his Ut-n as
certained to lie II. G. Mason. Nothing is
kuownof WiL-ko and but little of Miss
Stevenson. Tlie whole affair is shrouded
in great uivMery and much of a sensation
