roads for Carrying Mail.
Washington.—An appeal for leglsla- j
Hon to readjust the method of comput- j
ing payments to railroads for trans- |
porting the mails was made by Post- I
master General Hitchcock in a let-
ter to the house committee on post-
offices and post roads.
"On account of the institution of'
the parcels post system," wrote Mr.
UlKJicock, "the weight of mail to '.*e
transmitted by railroads probably will
be increased considerably and under
existing law no additional compensa-
tion may be paid until there has been j
a weighing of the m'lils and readjust- |
ment of the basis of pay."
Mr. Hitclieock'c proposition, which '
ho suggested a year ago, provides for >
a complete readjustment of the sys- I
tem of paying railroads for c Tying 1
the mails, substituting space for I
weight as the chief factor In dotilr- I
mining compensations. Under this
plan It would be possible to ascertain |
without edlay what, If any. additional
compensation should be given the rail-
roads on account of the parcels post, j
TWO ARRESTED FOR MYSTERI
j OUS DEATH OF WOMAN
WOMEN LEAD IN INVESTIGATION
Accused President of Indianapolis
Veterinary College Furnishes
Bond in Sum of
Indianapolis — Dr. William R. Craig,
president of a veterinary college, who
with Alonzo M. Ragsdale, an under-
taker, was Indicted in connection with
the murder of Dr. Helen Knabe on Oc
tober 23, 1911, appeared in criminl
court and was released under $15,000
bond. Craig was indicted for murder
and Ragsdale as an accessory after
the fact, being charged with having
concealed evidence after the murder
It was learned in the evidence to
the grand jury that Dr. Knabe had In-
sisted upon Dr. Craig marrying her
just a night or two before the woman
was found dead. The two had been
friends for many years and were often
together, but seldom seen together in
public places. Dr. Craig i ften took
her riding in his automobile accord-
ing to the testimony, and it was
shown that Dr. Knabe enjoyed his
The indictments were returned
after an Investigation of the myste-
rious case made by a private detec-
tive agency which was hired by a
number of women of the city and
which made a report to the grand
jury. The police, after a lengthy in-
vestigation at the time of the mur-
der, reported that Dr. Knabe died by
her own hand and dropped the case.
Coroner Durham, however, who exam-
ined many witnesses at hi? inquest, re-
turned a verdict that the woman was
murdered by persons unknown. The
women of Indianapolis, led by Dr.
Amelia Keller, an assistant of Dr.
Knabe, raised a fund of $2,BOO as a
reward for the conviction of Dr.
Dr. Craig has long been mentioned
In connection with the case and dur-
ing the meeting of The grand jury last
April was called before that body and
questioned several hours. At that
time it was rumored an Indictment
would be returned against him, and
)r. Craig made a statement denying
ny connection with the crime.
Ragsdale'a, indictment came as a
surprise. His name was not used in
the case until a short time ago when
he was ordered to produce before it
a silk kimono, which it was known
Dr. Knabe had been accustomed to
wearing when answering professional
calls at her door late at night. A
piece was cut from the hem of the
garment and it was declared chemi-
cal analysis showed it to have been
stained by human blood and that it
had boen washed in a Btrong chemi-
cal solution. *
Ragsdale, who was administrator of
Dr. Knabe'B estate, explained that the
kimono was found in her apartment
and left in his shop along with other
things of Dr. Knabe's effects, which
were of little or no value. Accord-
ing to the detective's report, the sworn
statements of Augusta Knabe. the doc-
tor's sister; Katherine McPherson, the
office girl, and Coroner Durham, show-
ed that the kimono was not In the
room when the body was found.
Dr. Knabe's body was found about
8 o'clock on the morning of October
23. 1911, by Miss McPherson when
she came to work '
