nearby cities In New Jorsoy are work
tng togethor to unravel tho mystery
of tho death of Mrs. Jos. Pulitzer
wIiobo nudo body was found yesterday
In Morris canal In tho outskirts of

Tho theory or Chlof of Police Mur-
phy of Jorsey City Is that tho woman

mired tho woman killed hor In a fit
of Jealousy. The husband of the wo-
man a tailor of this city was brought
from Jersey City to police headquar-
ter In thts city early today. Sergeant
IMinlor says Pulitzer made a state-
ment to the New York detectives
which was considered so Important
that It would not be made public. It Is
said the most Important cluo iu far Is
tho fact that a man called at Pulltzor's
homo on Tuesdny. To tho Jersey po-
lice last night' Pulltsor satd he had
returned lato at night and asked his
wife- to proparo a lunch. She was out
of cocoa and went across tho street
to get a supply. That was tho last
hoard of hor until tho body was found.
Tho weight which was attached to
the strap that was fastened about the
dead woman's waist was Identified to-
day as tho property of Chaa Evans
'who keops a stable In Hoboken.

calamity howling populists.
The Democrats and their ex.
