Cincinnati Commercial OaitttS, 20. ' "Murder" wis the eerloui charge written on the slate at the Cummiut-ville polio station, Iaat night, opposite the name ot Kmma Fisher. The oise is one of sensational interoat, and further develonmonta promise a tale ot domestio infidelity husbandly for-bear in oo on the one hand, and terrible depravity and crime on the other. Lieutenant Wappenstein.of the Cum-minsville district,arrcsted the woman, nd it is mainly owing to his efforts that as much ol the affair as is known has been brought to light, The prisoner was the wife of Adam Fisher, a well known dairyman, who lived on the Carthage pike, near Mitchell avenue. He wis a strong. hearty man, and on the 8th of this present month he went to bed in his usual good health. In the morning he was found dead, and hii wife had i nothing to say ot the matter. The neighbors ot the deceased, on learn be represented Hardeman and Madi-ing of the sudden manner ol his ton counties in the Senile of Tennes death, booajue suspicious, and they see, beiae elected practically wilhou openly sata uiai na ,Bta perisnea aipposuioii, the hands of his wife. Not only were the suspicions of the neighbors aroused, but Fisher' relative believed that the woman was at the bot torn of the matter, and they reported the tato to the Coroner, requesting him to make a thorough examination Coroner Muscroft gave his attention to the matter, and the result of his researobes is contained in the follow iog paragraphs: . ,i . 1'or some years Fisher and his wife bad lived togother very unhappily, and at the time ol his audden taking off her tuit tor divoroe was pending in the courts, lie was a mild mannered man who was not given to sell-asser tion. and she was in all these respects his opposite. In the neighborhood,! there lived a worthies tellvw by the name ol Joe Katser, who bad been driven from bit parents' home, and who was a recklcis profligate. A great intimacy sprang up between him and Mrs. tuber, and the two were always together. So great i, was hie boldness anri shamelessnesa that be is mat nei even spent hi. time at .the. Fisherl homo, taking the place ot the tead of i the hous4, who waf enmpletrly lg uorcd. When Fisher thieotod Kaiser knocked him down and otherwise mistreated bim, in all oi whioh be was heartily assisted by the fait bleu wife. On one occasion not long ago hel beat the long suffering husband so terribly.bat patience ceased to be a virtue, and be had him arrested for assault and battery, the ease beir g in tbe courts at the time ot his doatn, , The relations between Kaiser and Mrs. - Fisher were - notoriau. nd it was t matter of common neighbor hood sosaio. She had large family ol children, yet everything was deserted lor Kaiser.. She went to the theater aad to partita with him, and remained out on occasions nearly all night -Often Kaiser threatened n injure Mr. Fisher, and n'mnch ts a year ago Lieutenant Wappcnstcin advised him to go away, as sooner or later - the fellow waa bound to kill him." - So matters went on until the Sih ol September. On the evening 'of that day Mr. . Fisher retired to bed nn usually early, but before ha . had dropped asleep hia wife came lo him. In nor hand she carried powder, whioh she said was fur promoting sleep, and which she induced him to tike. He tell asleep, and never woke. The Coroner examined the intestines of th dead man, and finding traoes ol strychnine, he put them in tbe hands of Prof Wayne, ho made a ohemical ant.ly.-is He lonnd enough of the deadly poison in the stomach to produce death, and bo reported accordingly. Yesterday inorniug LicutcoantWap penstein, who is Fisher' brother-iu-law. swore out a warrant tor tbe arrest of Kaiser and Mrs, Fisher, on tbe chaige of murder. " Ueturmng' to UnmminsviUo he wont to hi dairy, and learned that Kaiser was in the city, bnt he scoured tbe woman, i lle waited several hours for. Kaiser and at last patience waa rewarded, and he saw hut man coming down the road in a milk wagon. The officer stepped int") the road and ordered the driver to halt and Kaiser to desoend. But the man realized what was wanted and snatched tbe lines, he whipped up the horse aod escened. 1 t Lieutenant Wappenstein shot after him aa he disappeared, but fearlul ot hitting the unoffending driver he did oot dare to fire at long rango. As yet Kaiser ha not been captured. Ia addition to tbe indiottuent banging over him for assaulting Fisher, there ij another one against him for beating and half killing a street oar oonductor. Mrs. Fiehci take the faot of her arreet vory coolly, and assert her in nocenc ol th crime. She docs not appear to be at all dispirited by being behind the iron bars ol- cell, aod she predict that she will be Iree again in a few days. Acoording to her version of the story it is his relative who are scheming to ruin her, in order that hey may come into possession ol the dead man's property, which is quite considerable. - Why ibey Call Hlin "Old nan." "Yea, that's sadly so," said Jenkins, "my hair is turning gray and tailing out before its time. Use something? I would, but moBt hair restorer -re dangerous."
