March If.—Inde finite signals, apparently from some steamer in distress, were picked up in fragmentary fojan toy naval wire less stations at Charlestown and Newport tonight, but on account of the many interruptions, not enough of the message could be distinguish ed to indicate either the name of the vessel or her whereabouts. "In distress, notify life saving stations—west—south, east," is the way the message was read at New port. At Charlestown it was thought P)SBi'ble that the message came from the stranded' steamer. Massachusetts In Vineyard Sound. The operators who heard the mes sages agreed that the flashes from the receiver were medium to heavy and seemed to toe from a stronger sending machine than an amateur would be likely to possess, so they felt quite certain that the message was not an aerial hoax. Another wirelss station picked up fragments of a message about the same time which were in effect that a vessel was drifting in distress off the New Jersey coast. The single word "trainer" was among other un connected words received tad this led to the supposition that the mes sage might have referred to the Ann J. Trainor, which was reported early In the week as drifting without masts oft the Virginia coast. S. D. APPROPRIATIONS Pierre, S.

OHIO CITY NOW HAS HAD SIX SUCH CRIMES—FOUR ARE UNSOLVED Woman's Body Found Lying on Bank of Canal Solitary Place—Mur der Must Have Taken Place Month Ago—Police Have Slender C1m Upon.Which to Work—Woman Well Dressed, About 30 Years Old. Dayton, Ohio, March 11.—Another baffling mystery confronts the police in the discovery today of the decom posed body of an unknown white woman in the canal below, the Apple street bridge.

Police headquart ers was notified and the 'body re moved to an undertaking establish ment. The woman apparently was thirty years of age, and well dressed. She was attired In black. She wore Ro meo slippers, but over these she had a pair of new rulbber shoes. The woman's undergarments were in good condition. -The decomposition will, it Is feared, prevent the identification of the woman. The place where the body was found, supplies an ideal spot for a murder with mystery attached. The distance to the nearest bouse prob ably Is more than a thousand "feet. The spot is approximately 800 feet south of the AppQo street bridge, "V A theory has been advanced, that, providing it was a case of murder, the woman might have been rolled down a very steep hill skirting the fair grounds on the east. '.The fair grounds have the reputation of being a try sting place. A month agio Charles Siefert stat ed to Coroner 'Swisher that he had seen a well dressed white woman standing at the end of the Apple street bridge apparently waiting for some one. He said that she seemed very nervous. Finding that she was being watched, the woman walked toward the fair grounds, which' end at' AppQe street, and was not seen again. This was in the evening. Siefert further states that the wom an was dressed entirely in black. The toody was found lying half out on the toank, face down, while tooth hands were clenched and were near her throat, as If she had tried to protect herself. The police are yet unable to express an opinion as to the probity of -either murder or suicide. Six girls have been found slain in Dayton recently. Four of the mur ders have never been solved. U. S.
