WILLIAM BOCHE DIED WITHOUT TELLING WIFE. WHERE SHE COULD FIND MONEY Although Some of His Relatives Can not Believe That He Would Carry His Secret to the Grave , Search Thus Far Has Failed to Locate Money. Although hla relatives can not bo- llovo but that ho rovenlt'il bin secret to sonuiierson , the fact remains thnt William Bocho , who was burled Tuesday - day afternoon , died without telling to bis wife or to any other person thus far discovered by her where she could unearth n mini of money which ho had kept lu hiding for some time , ll Is said by relatives that the man had bidden about $2,000 In gold , and speechlessncas after bo was taken sick , the last few days of his life , pre vented him from answering a question put to him by hlH wife as to where she could find the treasure. Some of the relatives of Mr. Bocho believe that he must have told his se cret to some person who has thus far chosen to keep the secret to himself. It Is claimed that Mr. Boche realized he was about to die , as he laid out clolhing in which he wished to bo burled , and It Is also snld that ho was able to speak the day before his death when , In settling with a neighbor over a trade , he remarked , "You still owe 1110 a bushel of corn and ton cents. " It Is argued froni this that Mr. Bocho could have told' whomever ho chose concerning the hidden money and that , knowing he was about to die , ho was too wise not to give up the secret on his death bed. A search by Mrs. Boche and mem bers of the family , however , 1ms thus far failed to locate the hidden gold and If any one person 1ms been told where the money can be found , ho has not yet chosen to give his Information to the widow and others of the family. Mr. Boche divided his land among his sons some time ago but since then he has made two sales , from one of which ho received $1,500 and from the other of which he received about $500. He was paid In currency , but had the currency changed Into gold , and where he put that gold nobody ever could learn. He was unwilling to entrust the sum to banks- WEDNESDAY WRINKLES.

SAYS THE ELECTION WILL KAIL Mr. Durlnncl Believes That a Meeting at Which a Report of What Has Been Done Were Announced , Would be Well Attended. Norfolk , Nob. , Fob. 0. Editor NOWH : Inasmuch IIH the only way to commu nicate with the stockholders of the Commercial club seems to bo through the columns of the newspaper , 1 ven ture to address a lellor to you on thn subject of the election of the board of directors that HOOIUH to bo under way. I noticed In your paper the other day a stntomout looking toward an election of this kind and WUH quite sur prised thnt It would bo thought of,1 as It scorns to mo not altogether fair to stockholders and surely not for the best Interests of the Commercial club nnd our city. I assume It must he that the direct ors wore discouraged with the result of their attempt to hold an annual election In the day time , and bocaiiHo of that failure , concluded that the pub lic and our stockholders arc not suf ficiently Interested to attend a mootIng - Ing ; but In this they are undoubtedly mistaken as , If they will call a meet ing of the stockholders for any evenIng - Ing with the announcement that they doslre to make a report of tholr doings money collected and disbursed , otu. and for an election of directors for another year , they will find an abund ance * of interest and a good attendance ance- . Tills matter Is a very serious 0110 for the Commercial club and for Norfolk I folk and should not ho allowed to go on In this way , that IH to say , It would bo so much bettor to have an election of directors at a public mooting whore we can confer with each other and dlsciiHS matters generally and got In touch with what has been done and doing lntho , club that the result of this effort to elect through the postolllco Is likely to bo a sorry failure. Further than this , the plan of elect ing directors by mail is directly con trary to the constitutional provision adopted by the organization. COMMERCIAL CLUB BALLOTS.

This ballot has boon sent out by Secretary Matbewson in compli ance with n decision of the club di rectors at a recent meeting when , this method was adopted in the hope that an election might result , insofar as it had failed to result in the regularly provided way by balloting at the city hall on the first Friday in January be tween the hours of 10 a. in. and -1 p. in. The blank ballots sent out were ac companied by return envelopes , al ready stamped ; but by an accident one-cent stamps wore on the envelopes and , since the postal regulations pro vide for two cents postage , It will be necessary to add another cent's worth of postage In returning the votes.

Murder Deliberately Planned. Miss Newton was 2 ( ! years old and lived with her aged father. An Indi cated above , the tragedy was the re sult of an unhappy love affair. The crime was committed al 3:30 : o'clock p. m. Frlnk had driven In from his farm early In the afternoon ami was loafing In the cigar store of Nulliam Groth. Just before the wlioot- ing Mr. Newton , the girl's father , came * Inlo the store nnd Frlnk was soon to leave the place immediately. A few moments later the Newton neighbors were startled by the report of a re volver , nnd were horror Btrlckon to see Miss Bofmle reel from the house nnd fall upon the ground In the yard. Frlnk was nowhere to be seen. The neighbors rushed to the girl's assistance and'carried her into the IIOIIRO , hut life was already extinct. Wild Fight of Slayer. A moment later the occupants of Doylo's barber shop were surprised to see Frlnk brealhlcssly enter and walk dlrcclly to his overcoat , which hung upon a hook on the wall. lie hastily extracted several loaded cartridges from one of Iho pockels and dashed from the shop loading his gun. II was done so quickly that no ono had time to prevent him or to even think of doing so. Frank McCabe was the next person who saw Frlnk. McCabe had just driven his slolgh Into the alley behind the Commercial hotel when a shot rang out just behind him. Turning In his seat ho saw Frlnk reel to the ground and In an instant recover his balance long enough to llro another shot and stagger to the street a half llock distant Here Mr. Bolton saw the man drop a gun nnd fall heavily to the walk. Mr. Bolton carried him Into Dr. Young's office. An examination on the operating table disclosed a severe wound In the head , the bullet being lodged In the nose , nnd n bullet hole in the left breast. The patient Is still uncon scious. Was to Have Wed. The facts leading up to this most distressing Iragedy were of nn un usual nnlure. Tomorrow night Miss Newton was to have married Edward O'Donnell , a farmer in Iowa. Although she was nt the time engaged to this man she was sllll receiving the ardent attentions of Frlnk , with whom she had been keeping company for some flvo years. Frlnk was well aware ol the existence of a rival , and notwith standing the fact that the girl had re fused his offer of marriage ho had , on more than ono occasion , nmdo threats that ho would never let Miss Newton marry O'Donnoll. Made Threat to Officer , Ho had informed the marshal thai he would never let O'Donnell mnrrj "his girl , " but the the marshal had nc Idea of the seriousness of the thrcal and was entirely unprepared for the crime. It la supposed that Frlnk , knowing of the Intended wedding , came to towi prepared for the desperate work h < had sot himself to do. While waitlnj In the cigar store ho saw the girl' : iithor inlor and formed bin plan of ictlon at once.
