Reynolds, a young iiniuartled woman,
about 21 years of age, was found mur
dered In the Orat.d hotel, at Twenty
first street and Broadway, this city,
today. Her death had evidently re
sulted from repeated blows on the
bead with a piece of lead pipe. Tlic
crime had been committed some time
between midnight and ,1 o'clock this
morning, but the police have not as
yet been able lo dcllnltely determine
whether the motive was one of rob-
bsry or otherwise, though they are
Inclined to the former belief.
After some hours of Investigation
and upon statements given by.thc
mother of the dead girl. Dr. Samuel
J. Kennedy, a young dentist of this
city, wasarrested and Is being held
on suspicion of the murder. The fact
that not only the murdered woman
was robbed, but another robbery was
committed on the same Moor, Incline
the police to the belief that the
woman was killed lu an attempt to
prevent the robbery.
The gill, who was 20 years of age.
entered the lintel, accompanied by
a man, who registered as E. E. Max
well and wife, and was shown a room.
Later the girl was seen walking

her daughter had drawn $.'100froui the

part of it in having work done on her
teeth, Theodore Vail, chief of police
of Atlanta, who occupied' a room
next to the girl's, said ho was nibbed
or $180 during the nlgnt. The case Is
a very mysterious one, and the police
have no clue
A search of the clothing of the
woman was made and revealed a
check on the Garlielil National bank
for 81:1,000, made out to "Emma Rey

Delaware Poisoning Mystery.
Dovr.n, Del-, Aug. 17. There were
no additional developments in the di
rection of a clearing of the mystery
surrounding the death of (x-Reprc-sentatlve
Pennington's two daugh
ters, Mrs. J. P. Dunning, formerly of
San Francisco, and Mrs. J. I. Deanc,
of this city. The first steps in obtain
ing an analysis of the candy were
taken, when a portion was placed in
the hands of Slate Chemist, Wolfe, at
A report was in circulation that
there was a doubt about the. candy
having been mailed in San Francisco.
This is erroneous. There is no doubt,
whatever. The package bears the
postmaik nf that office. The box did

was mulled at, letter-rate postage,
hence the use of t lie postolllce mark,

sent to Mrs. Dunning, and found that
It contained large quantities of
arsenic. One piece of the arsenic, he
stated, was as large as a pea, and he
added that there was enough or the
poison in the three pieces of candy to
kill four persons. The Jury rendered
a verdict of death from pnis'in
at tlio hands of some per.-ons unknown.
