From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Aug. 24, 1913:
- "Lawrence and Eudora relatives of Mrs. Eva Moeller, who was found dead in Holliday, Kansas, last Tuesday afternoon, are inclined to disbelieve the story that she took her own life and suspect that the young woman met with foul play. Mrs. Moeller, according to the report, went to Holliday on Tuesday morning after a quarrel with her husband in Kansas City. It was said that she was to meet her husband at the home of his father in Holliday and that the pair should agree upon a separation at this time. It is said that the parents were not at home when Mrs. Moeller arrived and that in the afternoon she became despondent and shot herself with a revolver. The bullet entered her heart and death must have been instant. Following the finding of the body of the woman the Johnson county coroner was summoned from Olathe, Kansas, and the body was ordered removed to that place. The funeral was held yesterday and the body buried in the Olathe cemetery. However, relatives of Mrs. Moeller disbelieve the story of the suicide and have instigated an investigation of the case. The Johnson county authorities are working on the case and the relatives of the woman hope to establish more definitely the cause of her death. The body was viewed by several persons before burial in an effort to obtain some clew. Today the investigation is being continued at Olathe and a number of Mrs. Moeller's relatives from Lawrence and Eudora are in that city conferring with the officers. The death of Mrs. Moeller, whether by suicide or foul play, is said to be the outgrowth of family troubles. It is alleged that the woman had made complaint against her husband in the Kansas City courts and that their domestic life had been very unhappy for some time. It is said that the couple had quarreled several times and that there was a violent dispute only a short time before Mrs. Moeller left Kansas City and went to Holliday."
- "Charges of vagrancy have been preferred against one John Green of Kansas City who was arrested by the officers last night. Green was carrying a suit case filled with 48 pints of whiskey when he alighted from Number 17 last night. Further than this Green is said to have left the train on the wrong side. He aroused the suspicion of the officers and they took him in charge. In court this morning he pleaded not guilty and will stand trial on Monday."
- "Eleven Haskell Indian boys could not resist the lure of the circus and last Friday followed Yankee Robinson's show to Leavenworth. The boys were found there and taken into custody and sent back to Lawrence. The boys stated that they had hoped to be able to join the circus and had hid on the circus train and made the trip to Leavenworth."
