Writes to Coey, Holding
KANSAS CITT. Aug. l.-The funeral
tof Miss Laura Matthews, who died from
a pistol wound at Colorado Springs, will
be held in this city tomorrow. Charles
A. Coey. the Chicago millionaire with
whom she had carried on a correspond
ence: Mrs. Jennie Matthews, mother of
the girl, and other relatives arrived here
. r'hla Innlrht Thpv insist that
Mtss Matthews did not commit suicide. U
but was muraerea. ahct m vu..c..
Mr. Coey will go to Colorado Springs to
make a thorough investigation of the
shooting. The body of the dead girl will
arrive here tomorrow morning at 9:45
o'clock over the Rock Island Railroad.
Mr. Coey tonight said that he had never
sent any money to Miss Matthews at
Colorado Springs, but that he had sent
$300 to defray her funeral expenses there
as he would do for any close friend. He
was bitter In his denunciation of the
testimony of Miss Green before the Coro
Believes Rumbaugh Killed Her.
He said he never knew Rumbaugh and
had never heard of him until after Miss
Matthews' death. He expressed the be
lief that the girl was murdered by Rum
baugh. He said that he had written to
Mtss, Matthews urging her to come back
to Chicago and that she In a letter to her
mother had intimated her intention of
leaving for Chicago soon ana that she
intended to stop off at Kansas City a
few days to visit her mother. Mr. Coey
said that he invited the greatest publicity
for his letters to Miss Matthews, as they
all reflected credit upon himself. He said
that he was not engaged to the girl, but
was her ardent admirer.
Neil G. Manson, brother-in-law of the
dead girl, said that they had come to
Kansas City, Kan., especially to escape
newspaper reporters. He said he had
been interviewed by f9 reporters since
last Monday night and that his home was
contlnuusly besieged by newspaper men.
Mr. Manson was stopping at the same
hotel with Mr: Coey, and their rooms
were connected. The warmest friendship
exists between them.
Mother's Praise of Coey.
Mr.' Coey gave out the following letter
from Mrs. Matthews', written today:
My dear Mr. Coey. Allow me to ex
tend my heartfelt thanks to you for the
courtesies, help and condolence you have
extended me during my late trouble.
Allow me to further say that there is not
a doubt in my mind that 1-aura did not
commit suicide; if it wasuch, it was not
connected in any way vith the report
that you had broken an engagement. Be
lnr thrown, as I have been, with you the
past few days. I think 1 have had a
spienaia opportunity 10 siuuy yuu y
leetly and I know that you feel the
blow greatly and have suffered from the
effects as much as myself, and further,
from talks both myself and Mr. Manson
have had with you, we are both con
vinced that you are entirely blameless of
the sad ending.
Asrain thanking you and extending my
sympathy to you. and never mind what
the newspapers may say, I always want
you to Bear in mind tnat you stand very
honorably in my esteem and for my dear
little daughter's sake I know a crown
awaits you in the great oeyona.
Sincerely your friend,
THOMAS BOASTS OF INTIMACY
Makes No Secret of Gay Times He
Had With Laura Matthews.
CHICAGO. Aug. 1. (Special.) Dr.
Harold E. Thomas, part owner of the
"101" ranch In Oklahoma, and son of
General Samuel Thomas, a New York
millionaire, threw concealment to the
winds today, so far as.lils relations with
Miss Laura Matthews were concerned.
"Yes, that's all true," he said, when
asked today at his apartment at 1441
Lawcence avenue, concerning stories
that he had rented an apartment for
Mrss Matthews at 4313 Greei vood ave
nue, and furnished It luxuriously.
"And did you have another luxurious
apartment across the corridor?" he was
"That I did.' he said.
"The neighbors recall that there were
gay parties in Miss Matthews' flat al
most every night," was suggested.
"Well, as I remember, there's no mis
take about that," said the doctor-ranchman,
urbanely. "I guess there were,
all right. We occupied those apart
ments for about six months, two years
Dr. Thomas no longer made any se
cret of the fact that he had often fur
nished money for the girl's expenses.
"It looks pretty bad," he said,
"doesn't it? But I guess that is all you
will care to know from -ne."
Charles A. Coey left the city last
night on a business trip. At that time
. he expected that the funeral of Miss
Matthews would be held here, and he
told a friend he intended, to return be
fore the body arrived here. Coey's de
parture, it was said at his office, was
on account of a pressing business mat
ter, which had been delayed by Miss
Matthews' demise. The trip, u .
safti, had no connection with the tragedy.

Ooey and Mrs. Matthews Go to Meet
KANSAS CITY, Aug. 1. (Special.)
Mrs. James Matthews, Mr. and Mrs. Neil
Manson and C A. Coey arrived here
from Chicago this morning for the pur
pose of meeting the body of Laura

near Colorado Springs Monday, "under
circumstances that led the unfortunate
girl's mother and friends to believe she
had been murdered.

tonight, "that Laura was murdered,

ST. PETERSBURG. Aug. 1. The body
of another officer who went up In the

one body was discovered floating In the

Evidence In the possession of General
Kovauk, in command at the aeronautic

Into the water In order to reduce the
weight of the airship and keep It up as
