MAY UNITE IN THE SEARCH I'EDVLER WHO ONCE CAME TO lOLA SOLD -out ALLIANCE" Ofliwrs Arc Trjluif to Dlijcovcr the •Whereabouts of tlic I'eddliT In Qui'bUou. VnlCKs ihu iiiicxiiecleJ liajipciis il is apparent lo the onicers that before ilio mystery iti the Sapp iragcdy is cleared away the owner of the blood staiueU razor found near where the dead girl lay must be- ascertained. To that end County Attorney Carl Peterson and Sheriff Uollingcr are • now working. Last evenins the officers obtained a cluo which may give light on the razor. If a tramp about forty-flve years of age. of English descent and slightly crijiiiled who passed through lola about two months ago peddling razors, can be found the pwner of the razor may bo learned. This tiamp wheu In lola had a number of razors among which wer« somo of the Our Alliance. The razor connected with the tragedy was an Our Alliance. It is known that the tramp showed this braad of razors to at Iciatt two men in loja. Es-I'oliceman Wilbur .«aw the tramp, as he was looking for him at the time, to ascertain wliethor or not he had secured a license to jieddlc his wate.s. The traniji said ho was en- route to Texas, and was going to -Moran from lola. Mr. Peterson is today maUiii^ an cfior! to discover whelher or not this tramp did go to Moran and he e.\i)ccts to .secure information before night. Mr. Pctertou will also fry to locate this tramp, ^\'hile he has n«-cl««"to the present whereabouts of u\c tr»mp Mr. Petcr ^-on hope-; to secure some information coucvrning him and will leave no .-~;uue unturned to llud^hira. r. J. Oyler, on- ol lUe countel for the deefudant. Sam Whitlow, said this morning to Mr. Peterson in t 'ae latter's office as he held the blood stained razor in his hand: "The defense will join witli jiie s !aie in sending notices all uvur ibe country in search of this trump. The defense is just as anxious to lind the owner of that instrument as the slate." The Inference might be draw u fi om . his statement that to disrover the ovncr of the razor was to strengthen the suicide theory, tjince ihe state fce'.;ms to have abandoned the belief that Mrs. Will low was dinetly connected with the tragedy, the conclusion to be drawn from the evidence is thai either Miss Sai>p or Sam \Miitlow owned the razor. One of the coun .-el for the defense said this morning that at the preliminary ,which occurs next Thursday, the st^te must show its hand. He stated that the defense will resist the profeculion vigorously from the be- ginnii|g. \M>itiow lias not as yel manifested any Woiry over his confinement or the cbarjje he niu.-t face. In fact, he is more'composed than when he lirst eii- ttred the jail, At JiTst he wouldn 't talk to the oth«r iirisoners. Now he Vonvers-es occaslonallv. H'- sleips long and soundly. His relatives and friend;: have offered to have his meals prepared j)rlvately for him. lJut he said he was satlslied with the Jail bill of fare. I Jury .Mi!>»ed K^ideuir. Anqther (ilscovcry which may help some In solving the Saji)) murder case was found tod^y. 1". K. Hagenbuch, the undertaker iu the emploiee of the I'ulbeitson undertaking establishment who prepared the body of May Sapp ready for burial, states that he no' ticed scratches on Miss Sapps forehead and also oa Iicr chin. Wheu before the jury ai the examination Mr. Hagenbuch was a^ked by the jury to tell of the condition in which he found the body. He told of the nature of the cuts, of the condition of iter clothing and described the bruised places on her arm but forgot to mention the scratches which he had seen on her foreiiead and chin. Had he been closely Questioned by the jury, the evidence would likely l"ive been obtained. Mr. Hageabuch says the scratclies were sudi «£ might have been made by finger malls. On ihe forehead was one: sUsh^ bruise that looked as if it mi^tiifre been made by a bard tap Of <i StiifiT and tbe ecratcb was aLso there. Ou the chin was a slight scratch. Mr. Culbcrtsou who also saw the body and helped get tlic body ready for burial nays ho also noticed the scratches. • .Mr. Hu;.,enbuch says when he first i.iw the :;<ralches on her chin he ihyu,:ht that they might have been iu:)de by -.he .•.•hi striking something wlii-n slie fell down face foremost. However wjjeii ihr evidence brought out tl :i> f.Ht i!i ;t( she had fallen backward he btian t<j ibiuU about the scratches oa IM-. <lii;i. .\ithougli the jury had Wi-u iV..'\i\..,vi\. Mr. Hagenbuch has tod sc;iK' ef ilriii about the scratches in cnler thai tlii.s additional evidence mu} l :e \: <. 1 if necessary. The scratches miglii iuilli;iii> tin; girl had been in a strug.yle of ^ome kind. I>lseu.s.s Legalil}- oi" Jur>. There has been some discussion among the attorneys of the city .is to whether or not the decision of the coroners jury in.Uic Sapp case was legal. Some contend that since the oath, wJiich the jurors take, contains the words "over the dead body," the decision is not legal. The first coroner's jury viewed the body and complied with the law in every respect. Uut after Whitlow's confession, it developed that one of the jurors was a relative and it was found necessary to empanel a new jiir .v. This was after the funeral and interment had taken place. The inquest was not held oxer the dead body; neither did the jurors examine the bod .v. Otherp. including the county attor- ne.v, contend that if there were irregularities in this particular case, they were unavoidable. The county ailor- ne.v pi'ocecdcd with the second inquest on the advice of the very best legal talent. As the jury made no recommendations with reference to holding Whitlow and the father of the unfortunate girl was ready ai^d did swear ont a warrant for his arrest, the verdict of the jury has no bearing on the case wliatever. Had the jury brought in a verdict of'murder and placed the uiaine ou Whitlow and the coroner had sworn to the complaint, there doubt.ess would have been some action tak<'n to contest the verdict on the grounds of illegality. Moran I» Quiet. Harlan Taylor, one of th„- first men to reach the side of Miss May Sap;), v.-ho is in.tte city this afternoon, says that in Moran there is now little talk about the tragedy. At first everyone tallied it. in fact but very few slept, but .-iiic9 an arrest has been made and both the Sapp family and that of Whitlow" are prominent in Moran, j>eop;e hesiialt to say much about the matter, either for or against. All they are ^ayiug now i.s Uiat they want the mystery fathomed. New E>idenco Today. Additional information, which wH; be introduced as evidence, was secured from Moran toda*' with refer- eace to the Sapp case. It is to the elfect that a Mrs. Caldwell, with her cliildren, was distributing May has- l:its on the firrt of May last, and visited the Willlow home in their rounds. The boys, it yeems, made some noise and Mr. Wiiitlow came out and urged them to go away, speaking .-'.s if he knew who they were and why ti:«'\ w-re there. Cpon discovering that it was rvir.'-. Caldwell and chlld- rtii lie ai>ologlzed profusely. This is taken to indicate that WJiUIow tiiought the night visitor vas -^liss Sap).. It i .-v also reported that two lx»\^, u youth nanted Mendall and Cliandot llurloek saw Miss Sapp in the vicinity of the Whitlow lionie very lat»; at nigl.t. The abovj Information was ceiiM'jed to the ofllcers this afternoon. Coiucat OD Wliltlow Case. (Ottawa RepubllO A grwil many im-n arc pronouncing NHiltlows story false simply because an • c.\pirience such as h3 narrates n<'»er occurred to them. This is a poor basi.-^ uijon v-hlch to form an opinion. "Tliere are more things In heaven and liarth, Horatio, then are dreamt of in your idillosophy." Any one who in- quir.'s deeply into the relations existing between men and women will discover numerous easvs of Infatuation fully as strange as that of Miss Sapp. as U'Tiltlow tells It. Of course "tniltlow may be a liar, and a murderer as well: his story may be partly, or e?en wholly false, but It is by no maans Impossible. » « • The Moran tragedy well illustrates the fact that there is a freat deal going on that we never hear about until the explosion comes. I Ft. S -iott Republican.) Dr. John Maclean and Rev. G. M. Evans were out at Moran yesterdajr atteudini; the Ottawa district confer euce. This morning Rev. Evans vru asked what talk there was at Moran regarding tbe murder. He replied fhat he asked but one man ragarding the unfortunate affair and that this particular Individual believed "Whitlow innocent and added that every man In the town to whom he bad talked held the same opinion. Rev. Bv:-rs said there was not us much talk about tbe crime an he had expected tbero would be. Of course this may be accounted for by ih^ fact that tho iiiquost l.s being held at loin, where all purtlos concerned are in attendance. It must be admitted that the man Whitlow's story has won many to hlsj bide. Ho Impresses a great many as having a straightforward story and several have predlcte<I that the man will never be puuished for hav- ini; had anything to do with this mu^ d.-r. (Ottawa Herald.) The fact that a girl Insisted ou meeting him alone at night might aroused the caution of Mr. Wlilt- •ow. of Moran. In overlooking this laet. .Mr. Whitlow still had a c.iauce to consider that the girl carried a razor. (l"t. Scott Tribune.) The story of tho death of .Miss .Mar Sap (i. as tuM by the man WliUlow. together with his relations with her. Is one of the most dramatic and unusual ever Ueard of. WliUe it apiiears to be most unplausible. yet there IS some hing about It that appeals to one ITS being the truth. The girl had the rapmatlon of belnc modest, of a retired dlstosltiou. and not hankering after the society of men. yet there st -oms to bo no question but what she was enamored of the man, himself having a wife and iainily. ,\gaiu. •lors it appear reasonable that he should have seen the girl take her own life, then pick up the razor and TO to his home, carefully remove the blood stains therefrom, and return to •he scens of tlio tragedy and deposit he cleansed weapon In the yard without showing any outward feeling or attracting any attention whatever. But there is another side to the story that has to be reckoned with. No one knew the relations of the two and had he made an outcry when she slash ed the jugular vein, producing almost "nstaut death, he would have been accused of har murder and nothing under the shining sun dould have saved hlni from conviction. In the stillncvis of the night the man had but little time to act advisedly, and if he really employed the means which he says ho did. he is a cool headed Individual, possessing most unusual qualities. If he is guilty, and deliberately murdered the plrl, his story is apt and Is the* only defeirse he could prtsslbly offer. Tho case Is attracting considerable attantlon in tlils county because of the prominence of the people and the outcome will be watcheil closely by everjbod.v. The case is beset with many cnmpllcsHons and tho result cjnnot bo predicted. A Topeka Capital dispatch from Ottawa, says: There is ar lea;sf one man in Ottawa who is confident that Samuel h. Whitlow of Moran was jiot connected with the death of May Sapp at the place in any other way tltat as a witness of her suicide. He is D. F. Daniel, tlie well known hay dealer at 745 South Cedar street. "If Mr. Whitlow says Miss Sap|) tsommitted suicide you may be sure she did." was the way Mr. Daniel expressed himself. Mr. Daniel has kuown AMiitiow for 25 years and lived in the same district when Whitlow taught the Bronson school years ago and Wbitiow's name was connected with Miss Sapp's unfavorably. At that time Mr. Daniel adds, tVliUlow Insisted oti tho full Investigation which resulted in his vindication. FAVORED THE DEFENDANT. THE IVEATHEH.

WHEAT GIANTS COMBAT Ratten Has the Bull Side and Armonr Is the Bear in the Chkago Fit. Chicago, Oct. 12.—There will be a hard struggle in the wheat pit between .James -\. Patten and J. Ogden Armour ac»lording to a report circulated today among the brokers ou the board of trade. Patten, with holdings estimated at 15 million bushels, has entered the arena lu tha role of a bull, while Armour, said to be heavily short on the market, Is playing the part of a bear. As to tho outcome of the struggle opinion among brokers is divided. Disappointing harvests tho world pvcr this .season and a serious shortage in Europe are said to favor the Patten side of the arguni^nt, while Armour Is said to rest hi^ase upon the huge stocks of cash wheat In Chicago and the prospect of Argentina, with the promise of the largest crop ever rais-' ad in that country, will come to the rescue of European buyers long before the starvation period Is reached. There are about 20 million bushels of dash contract wheat in Chicago elevators, the bulk of which Is owned by Armonr and the bears say that if Patten demands the delivery of grain on contracts tho load will break his back. On the other hand, the bulls say that all the grain here and more, too, will be wantaji before the next crop is available and that Patten will not only take all of Armour's wheat away from him, but.focre him to deliver it in the yellow packing house wagons.
