SAYS SHE SUICIDED, Kansas Man's Strange Story of His Wife's Death. HE IS ACCUSED OF KILLING HER. fcold the Children Their "Mother Died In Texas but Her Body Was Found Scantily Buried In a TrenchHow He Accounts Kor Hor Skull Being CrushedAdmits I hey Quarreled. Kansas City, June 3. W.

H. Klens. mire, whose wife was found murdered near their home at Holton. buried in a shallow trench, was arrested in Kansas City, Kas. Marks on the body, which is believed to have been buried since May 19, indicated that her skull had been crushed with a club and suspicion was directed against the husband who disappeared at that time.

When arrested Kle ns anire was at the depot to take a train, as he said, for Hoiton. When told he was wanted on suspicion of murdering his wife, he refused to talk. Finally Klensmire was induced to make the following statement: "My wife and I disagreed frequently, but I usually let her have her way. Just' before her death she was very ane because I wanted to sell some land which she had signed a deed. She said she would leave me.

But I did not want to let people know she had ien me ana told her to say she was going away on a visit. We had a few words Sunday, May 12, about it. She went away and later I found her body hanging from a rope in the barn, took her down but was afraid of the disgrace and hid her body in the straw. The next day I buried her. I told the children she had gone to Texas and the telegram I sent saying she was dead was intended to keep them irom knowing she suicided.

Asked about the condition of his wife's crushed head, he said: "Maybe the dirt falling on it mashed it in, wouldn't strike her." There was no more than two feet of dirt over the body as it was found. Klensmire is a German farmer, 4S years old and uneducated. The prob ability that he would be tried murder seemed secondary to the grace from publicity of the affair. He was born near Holton and has alway lived in that vicinity. His mother and two or three brothers and sister live there and are well respected.

Chicago, June 3. In a frenzied speech before 5,000 people at the Auditorium, John Alexander Dowie, founder of what he calls the Christian Catholic church, denounced everything not identified with his Zion. vilified the Roman Catholic church and the pope, hurled anathemas at Masonry, the newspapers and banks, and while he paced up and down the stage area himself to be the nronhet Elijah and the forerunner of a theoc cy for temporal government.

Dowie's most startling declaration was as follows: "I am Elijah, the prophet, who appeared first as Elijah himself, second as John the Baptist, and who now comes in me, the re of all things. Elijah was a prophet, John was a preacher, but I combine in myself the attributes of the prophet, priest and ruler over men. Gaze on me then; I say it fear lessly. Make the most of it, you ches in ecclesiastical garb. am he that is the living physical and spiritual embodiment of Elijah, and my commission to earth a third time has been prophesied by Malachi, by God self, by his sou Jesus, by Peter, and 3,000 years ago by Moses.

ho believe me to be in verv truth all of this will stand up." Over people rose to their feet and greeted the declaration with cheers and hand clapping. "Understand well what mean," he continued. "I will take no counsel in methods of government I have come to proclaim theocracy, pure and simple, the government of God God and for God, and I will never rest till all other forms of government have been driven from the earth, talk about your democracy. Bah tell you democracy been tried in the balance and has failed. The go ernment of the people, by the people and for the people is twaddle.

I stand loyal to the flag and countenance no revolution. But I demand here and now that the name of God must be placed foremost in the constitution of the United States and the supremacy of God in all things." Having delivered himself of this tirade, Dowie concluded by admonishing his followers, "You must pay your tithes into the church of God." Didn't Indict Dowie. Chicago, June 3.

It is capitalized at 000 and has taken over all of the large works with the exception of the Baldwin. The new "trust" will have an average daily output of seven complete locomotives.
