Mrs. Belle Waymire is under arrest at Vancou
ver, Washington. The woman was taken into cus
tody by Sheriff Sappington on orders from police
headquarters at Portland. Mrs. Waymire had been
stopping at the Columbia hotel.
When interviewed Mrs. Waymire declared that
she was innocent of an attempt to blacken the char
acter of Mayor Lane. She said that she would try to
prove that she had never plotted to make trouble for
the mayor, but during her conversation she appeared
to have had her story well framed for the purpose of
convincing those who questioned hefthat she was f
telling the truth. The testimony of other persons in
the case is conflicting wi HMhat of the woman.
At midnight last night L. L. Man-

alleged to-conspirators . with Mr.
Waymire racceeded In raiaing the

Peeks Through Doorway.
A knock at Mrs.- Waymlre's door in
the Vancouver hotel yesterday, after
noon brought forth the sharp Inquiry

' When Mr Waymire was told - that
she herself was wanted she opened her
room door-just enough to reveal a wo
man of perhaps 26, petite and with a
most attractively rounded, figure, a
head crowned with a great mass of
golden brown hair and a face, the prln

Daughter of Wealthy Kansan Walks Into Back Yard
and Is Found Dead a Few Minutes LaterShe Was
Never Engaged and No Motive Is Found. ,
(Hearst News by Longest Leased Wire.)
Iola, Kan., Sept 28. Miss May Sipp,
the beautiful daughter of John N. Sipp,
a wealthy man who lives with his fam
ily In the little town of Moran, 10 miles
east of here in this county, was found
dead, with her throat cut in ths back
yard of the family home last night
There appears to be no reasonable ex
planation of the cause of ths deed. .
The townspeople ars divided in their
theories regarding the caae. . Some as
sert that it Is a case of murder, while
others say it could aa well be suicide.
Miss, sipp : was an unueuauy pretty
young woman, one naa aamirera, nut
none who called upon her so constantly
that It could be termed a love affair.
She was 2S years old and In excellent
health. Because she had -not so far as
anyone- knows, -ever been' engaged, ' she
was regarded? as ratner a peculiar gin,
when her wealth and beauty were taken
Into consideration. At dinner last night
the young woman chatted -with her
father and mother and appeared to be
Id the best of spirits. Later the father i
want down to ths postooioe tor tn main
and ths mother busied herself about ths
house. The daughter stepped out into
the backyard. It was about 1:20 o'clock. -She
had not. according to her mother, ,
been gone two minutes when she. hoard
a soream of "Mother, mother I" - -
The mother rushed Into the yard and
found her daughter lying in a pool of
blood. The daughter apparently waa
dead- when tre mother reached her side.
At first nothing was found, but later
in the night, about 10 feet from where)
the body lay, was found a raior which
bore the firm name of Montgomery
Ward A Co., ..Tha raior was closely .
a mined, and here ths mystery deepen.
There . Is no trace of, blood upon tho
handle or blade. This was s great sur
prise to the coroner, who had arrived ay
short time before, and the thortta be
gan speculation upon the palilttty e
tha murder, if It was murder. The coro
ner says it ths cuts were small - on
ther' would not nfteeiuitrilv leava trai T
on the blade, but whr tne !tr
throat waa cut severing uA the vaina, it
would be) sure to stain tiio blade or un .
