intent to murder. Thinks He U "Working" Sympathy. WAPKESHA, "Wis., May 11.—The story of John Bernhardt's love affair as a motive for his crime does not meet with much credence by the authorities. The iheriff thinks the murder was committed for money and money alone. He found some love letters'when he was searching Bernhardt's trunk, but they were from another source. He found only one letter from Miss Schley, and it was not of such a character as to make him 'change his views. Sheriff Gaynot , thinks Eerhhardt is "working*' the public to secure sympathy. Mrs. Jacob Herbrand, a sister of the murdered man, was seen by a Wiscoxsix reporter in regard to the matter. She said her neice used to keep company with. Bernhardt several months ago, but all intimacy between them had teased at the request of the girl's father.. They were on friendly terms, but that was all. She did not think Henry Schley, Bernhardt's victim, had ever interfered-in the matter. The young lady is Miss Emma Schley, daughter of George Schley of New Berlin. , r News
