Bohunks at Cement City Decline to
Talk of Austrian's Killing.

None of the foreign settlement at Cement City has come forward to claim the body of Wiley Madertage, who was stabbed in the neck by another Austrian, alleged to be Nick Melosetz, in a fight at Cement City Tuesday night. The body of Madertage was viewed yesterday by the coroner at Ott's undertaking rooms and an inquest will probably be held today.

The bohunk colony at Cement City, north of Independence, is reticent over the affair. Some of them claim that Madertage stayed at the Melosetz home and that the two men were friendly until Madertage became too friendly with the wife of Melosetz. None of the Austrians there can talk English, and the information bearing on the stabbing affray comes in a jargon which the Independence police officials find it hard to interpret except by hazarding a guess.

Jimmie Palowski stated that Madertage joined the colony only recently, and little, if anything, was known about him in this country. Meanwhile, the undertaker will hold the body to await the coroner's inquest and further developments.

Arrest Five Austrians and Confiscate
Lot of Liquors.

Three blind tigers in Cement City were raided by a party of deputy marshals, headed by W. E. Weisflog, yesterday afternoon and five Austrians were taken to the county jail on John Doe warrants. Several kegs and cases of beer and a little whisky were seized. Those arrested gave their names as Stogan Pertrinjac, Samuel Ougreen, Mike Sharp, Rosie Ongrin, Stina Petisena, the last two being women. They will be arraigned in Justice Remley's court this morning. Another Austrian arrested was too ill to be brought to Kansas City.
