Body of Alma Kellner Found

MISSING SINCE LAST DECEMBER
Lono Search For Little Niece of Mil-

Louisville, Ky May 31. Every de

It is alleged that a carpet, which
was wrapped around the body of
Alma, belonged to Wendling, and the
police have found clothing of his which
they believed Is blood stained. A mi
croscopic and chemical examination
will be made of tho clothing.
The decomposed body of the child
who mysteriously disappeared from"
her home last December was found in
n subbasement of St. John's school nt
Clay and Walnut streets. The body
was lying in throe feet of water.
The body was positively Identified ns
that of Alma Kellner by her uncle.
Frank Fehr. a millionaire brewer of
The condltlou of the body indicated
that it had been in the hiding place
for several months and that a crude at
tempt to bury it had been made. The
discovery was mnde shortly before 10
o'clock yesterday morning, nnd Chief
i Llndsey, who hurried to the scene in
an automobile, said he had no doubt
it was the body of the missing child.
The decaying torso, for a limb was
missing, was wrapped In a piece of
carpet. The missing limb was found
In nnother part of the cellar, the foot
bearing the shoe. The latter feature
is puzzling the police.
Alma Kellner disappeared Dec. S.
and from Jlmi time until the body was
found the case has been n mystery.
She left her home on the morning hi
question to attend a service at St.
John's church, and the last seen of her
was when she waved good by to her
mother lu front of the residence. Tho
search for the missing girl extended
all over the United States, and thou-

The lwdy was found by a plumber

Storming Forces Driven
HEAVIEST FIGHTING OF WAR.
Nicaraguan Government Less Hopeful
of Early Crushing of War Venus
Misses Clash With Gunboat.
More Marines Landed.
Bluefields, .May 31. General Lara,
commanding the Nicaraguan regulnr
forces, made an unsuccessful attempt
to rush the trenches hold on the left
think of General Estrada's position.
The fighting was the heaviest that
has taken place during the operations
around Bluefields, nnd the losses were
proportionately severe. It Is reported
on what seems to be excellent authori
ty that the dead nnd wounded in tho
struggle alone will foot 250. The rev
olutionists captured WO prisoners,
most of whom were In shocking phys
ical condition and who agree In the
belief that General Lara h'as abandon
ed hope of carrying Bluefields by
storm as lie evidently expected to do.
Tho provisional government here has
issued a decree transferring the cus
toms house from Bluellelds bluff to the
ninin harbor. Ships arriving are now
compelled to transfer their freight and
passengers to the schooner Cnyc, which
Is stationed three miles off the mouth
of the harbor of Escondldo.
It is learned that there was nearly a
clash on last Friday night between
the Madrlz guuboat Venus and tho
American man-of-war Pnducah. Irias,
the commander of the Venus, gave no
tice that It was his Intention to bom
bard the Estrada trenches. In order to
reach theln with his guns It would
have been necessary to throw shells
over the city proper. The commnnder
of the Paducah cleared ills vessel for
nction and notified the Nicnraguans
that he would sink the Venus if a sin
gle shot was tired. The Venus with
drew from her position and has kept
In the background since.
More marines from Colon have been
landed here. It Is recognized that
their presence was needed, as the sit
uation is exceedingly critical. Details
of the capture of Bluellelds bluff seem
to confirm the charges of treachery
on the part of General Zeledon, who
was accused ut the time. While the
loss of the position was a heavy blow
o Estrada, it is not believed now that
they can take the city even by siege.
