SAY POWERFUL HAND WIELDED THE WEAPON Negro Janitor Heard Screams in Woman's Room But Fail- ed to Investigate, INDIANAPOLIS, !nd., Oct. The police were completely baf- fled today in their efforts to solve the murder of Dr. Helene Knabe, former Btafe- -pathologist. They are now working on the theory that she was slain for revenge, but no clue as to slayer has been developed. The police be- lieve Dr. Knabe was killed by a man as the knife wounds indicate they were dealt by a powerful hand. The coroner scouts the suicide the- ory and considers the evidence that Dr. Knabe was murdered conclusive. Xone of the %voman's jewels or val- uables were missing, according to the police Dr. Kna'be's past life is be- ing probed by the authorities in an effort to ascertain any enemies she may have had. No hint of a love af- fair has yet been made to the police.

SEVERAL OF ESCORT SLAIN imperial Troops Desert And Make No Resistance to Ad- vance of Revolutionists, Both the city and state authorities may offer a reward for the apprehen- sion of Dr Knabe's murderer Gov- ernor Marshall has asked for full re- ports from the police. The body was found with the head nearly severed Katherine McPher- son, assistant to Dr. Knabe, made the discovery. Jefferson Haynes, the negro janitor of the apartment house where Dr. Knabe lived, was detained on suspic- ion that he knew something of the circumstances of her death, but the detectives let him go after he had withstood for hours their attempts to thaw incriminating information. The theory of suicide, put aside earlier i nthe day, was revived but the police declared the evidence tended to indicate murder. The knife with Dr. Knabe was killed has not been found, and the coroner and the police were of the opinion that if she gashed her own throat she would not have had strength to hide the knife and then return to her bed. Further, there were no blood stains on the floor of her bedroom. whete blood had trickled fipm the wound, across the bed and dripped on the floor. Haynes, the janitor, who had known Dr., Knabe for years, told the police that he went to bed in his room in the basement of the apart- ment house at 11 o'clock. Dr. Knabe's apartment was just above, on the first floor of the building He was awaken- ed in the night, he said, by three screams apparently in Dr. Knabe's flat, but he slipped off to sleep again without investigation. At 5 o'clock in the morning, lie continued, he heard footsteps in the room above him. Dr Knabe's flat was in a corner of the building and its windows opened en two streets. None of these win- dows was locked and several of them weie open. There is but one door and it lef.db into the front hall.
