LOUIS BUSSE UNDER ARREST FOR ALLEGED MURDER OF HIS WIFE. , Greene, Juue 2."). Louis Busse, a wealthy farmer, living about nine miles from this place, was placed under arrest yesterday afternoon, charged with murdering his young wife and attempting to burn his home to hide the evidence of bis crime. Henry Snider, a hired man on the farm, was arrested as an accomplice. The woman was found dead in her home last Tuesday with her throat cut and her body partly Incinerated by fire. The coroner's jury rendered an open verdict, Indicating that her death was due to suicide, but the county attorney ordered the body taken up and an autopsy developed that the woman's skull had been crushed in. t ;, The particulars of the crime as developed by the authorities show it to have been one of the most cold blooded murders ever committed in this part of Iowa. The evidence in the case, as has been brought In piecemeal from the hired man, shows that the family ate dinner together the afternoon of the murder, and that after dinner Busse sent Snider to a neighbor's to borrow a post-hole auger. . - 1 While the man was away, it is alleged, the husband entered the house, struck his wife r.ver the head with some blunt instrument, and then cut. her throat with a poeketknlfe. In order to hide his deed, it is alleged, he saturated the woman's clothing and the floor with kerosene, carried a feather bed and several feather pillows from an upstairs room, piled them on top of her, and then set fire to the whole mass. Having done this the man went coolly out to where his hired man was digging post-holes and began helping him at the work. A brother of Busse. living half a mile distant, first discovered the fire, and, hastening over. threw a couple of pails of water on It and extinguished the blaze, but not DASHED INTO FRAGMENTS BY SEETHING WALL OF WATER, APPEALS FOR AID, GENERAL SIANG AND BOXERS MARCHING ON TAI- YUEN.
