Startling dc Telopmonts hare come to light In connec tion with Sunday morning's double trair ody In which Max Xoa k and Ida Micter, alias Hazel Hammond, lost their lives. The officers are now convinced that it was a case of doublo murder oommitttsl for the purxse of robU'ry. inst-ad of mnnlerand miieide as at first sipoctod. The most Important find was the imprint of a strange man's hand on the dust In the room In which the rxslies were found and an exit to the alley lx-low, which had not been noticed before. A hammer with what np Icars to be human blood o,i it, was also found. . It is now thought this hammer flgiir.il In the killing. Iite yestcnlay nfternoon warrants wore sworn out charging Maud Hoyle and I)an Kerry, a pugilist who ft-mierly liviil in Umahn. with murder In tho first degree, end they were both placed under nrn-st. The most sensational testimony before the coroner was that given by Detti-five Hrott, whose evidence was that on top of the par tition separating the room in which the tr:igily occurnil fnmi the next one he found the Imprint of a man's hand, und tho dust on the ceiling had Ix-en brushed off as if l.y some one who had esca;sil from tho rotim in tils manner. After climbing over this partition it would have lieen easy for the tiiunien-rtu have esi ap.il down the back stairway into th.- alley. The hammer, the police liclicve. accounts for two lh-h wounds on 'oack's chi k near where the b-illet ntenil. and which were at first thought to have Isvn made by the fall. It is now thought N'oack was hit with the hammer, thrown Into the rixim and nfterw.nil shot in u:i attempt to cover iijj the tracks of the inutilenT and make It nppenr a case of suicide. It is then thought that Hazel Hammond we.s shot and lior body thrown into the room. CRACKSMEN GET A BIG HAUL. Cnptnre Ten Thousand IKilhirs and Have ttmoilir; rigbt. ST. JosKrii, Mo.. Aug. is.
