Between ten and eleven last night
a shot rang out from the depot of
the Missouri Pacific Railroad and
aroused the proprietor of the hotel
nearby. Upon Investigation It was
found that Operator Klrchoff had been
murdered In cold blood by some un
known persons. The body was found
partly In the office and partly In the
waiting room. The hotel man who
discovered the body at once notified
the day agent and he came to the
scene but no clew could be found to
the murderer. It Is thought robbery
was the motive, but that the murder
ers were frightened away by the quick
response to the shot.
