Matson was found dead on the floor of one ol the rooms ol her house at Fifteenth and Monroe streets. The body had evidently lain there for at least 10 days, as it was stiff and cold and there had been no life about the house for 10 daya. A boy who delivers milk at her house had noticed that the can he left about 10 days ago had stayed on the back door step and he gave the alarm to the police. Mrs. Mat- Bon lived alone, her husband being in California. She lived in a good deal of seclusion as regards her neighbors, who are mostly colored people, and it is not 1 known whether there was any money in the house 'or not. She lay in a little back room on her back and in a pool oi her own blood, which had dried. It appears she had been criminally assaulted. Body Covered With Rag*. The body was covered with clothing and rags and a couple of sacks of potatoes had been placed on her head. She lay in an easy position on her back, with her arms at her sides, her head turned to the right, her right limb straight out and the other drawn up a little. Her clothes were thrown up over her head and clotted blood held them to the floor. The entire top oC her head was crushed in as though she had been struck one fearful blow. The neighbors in the vicinity are all colored, and they say they have not seen Mrs. Matson for two weeks. Mrs. Robinson, who lives across the street, Bays that she saw Mrs. Matson last about two weeks ago and she was then coming from the direction of her houses and hod evidently been collecting rent. She saw no one around the house at any time and never heard any noise or disturbance of any kind there. Mrs. Matson was for several years a member of the city board of education from the Fifth ward and took an active Interest in the city schools. She was at one time a . city teacher and was very well known locally. She was generally supposed to have considerable money and owned five or six houses on the East Bide. Her bus band left her four or five years ago and took up a homestead in California, where he has since lived. Mrs. Matson was a member of the Topeka Equal Suffrage association and a prominent suffrage worker. Great Gold Strike* at Leadville.

WASHINGTON, Deo. 21.— The veiling that has concealed the statues of Daniel Webster and General John Starke,whicb have been placed in the extreme north end of statuary hall in the national capitol ns the gift of the people of the state Of New Hampshire, was quietly re« moved at noon Thursday and the public was for the first time permitted to IOOH upon theae latest additions to the na< tional collection of memorial figures. The unveiling was as simple as it was possible to make it and consisted in lift* ing from the marble columns the shrouds of canvas with which theyjwere covered. There was, howevei, quite an assemblage of people, including Governor Smith of New Hampshire and staff, in the hall until the veil was cast aside. When the figures were disclosed there was a round of applause from the New) Hampshire men. The face of Webstet shows its characteristic vigor, although there is a benignant expression no! shown in the usual print and busts oi the great orator. He stands erect, clad in an old time dress coat and choker, his left hand grasping a roll of manuscript.
