Keyser, W Va
April 4th, 1914
Whereas, this is the first meeting of the Keyser Electric Light Co since the death of our associate and co-director, Mr J H Markwood, and, whereas, his long services in behalf of the Company has been of inestimable value and incapable of full expression by us, yet we wish to record for the guidance of those hereafter, his unending efforts for this company. Therefore, be it Resolved, that the Board of Directors of the Keyser Electric Light Co, in the death of our late co-worker, Mr J H Markwood, feel keenly the loss of his counsel and assistance, that we wish, so far as words are capable, to record that Mr Markwood never ceased to look after the interests of this company, and yet always kept in mind his duty toward the people who are our patrons, and, that, by these resolutions we wish to convey to his family our heartfelt sympathy in this hour of their great bereavement. Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of this day, that a copy be sent to the widow of our deceased co-worker, and that the same be published in our local papers.

BODY OF ARNOLD GIRL WAS BURNED
MYSTERY OF THE DISAPPEARANCE OF HEIRESS
HAS BEEN SOLVED.
With further arrests in prospect, startling disclosures were expected today in the case of Dr C C Meredith and his associates, arrested in a raid on the physicians private maternity hospital at Bellevue, long known hereabouts as the House of Mystery. In the big, isolated institution on a high bluff overlooking the murky Ohio, many women met a gruesome fate, according to a confession ascribed to Dr H F Lutz, one of those under arrest and fully credited by District Atty B H Jackson. A score of detectives went to the death house early today and began to a systematic search of the place. Every mysterious nook was examined and the cellar dug up in the hope of finding evidence of the disappearance of women of this and other cities. The victims probably numbered a score. There may have been more, according to Dr Lutz,, and among them, he said, was Dorothy Arnold, New York Heiress, who disappeared mysteriously in 1910. Dist Atty Jackson smiled at reports from New York to the effect that John Keith, Atty for Francis Arnold, father of Dorothy Arnold, had come to Pittsburgh unknown to his employer and investigated a report that the missing heiress was at the Bellevue Institution. Lutz, has come through and told us everything, said Jackson today. We have evidence that Dorothy Arnold was traced right to the door of Merediths downtown office in the Schmidt Building. We have learned enough already to convince us that in this raid we have broken up one of the worst places in the country. It is too early yet to tell just what will be revealed about Dorothy Arnolds fate by the arrests. Although today was a legal holiday in the state, both the district atty and the Chief of Detectives E E Clark were early at work upon the case. And both were sanguine that the disappearance of the perfume importers daughter would be fully and finally explained, together with the dropping from sight of other women. According to the alleged Lutz confession, several Pittsburgh physicians acted as feeders for the hospital, sending to Meredith for illegal operations women who came to them. In a number of cases when complications resulted and were followed by death, the remains of the victims were heartlessly consigned to a monster furnace in the basement, according to Lutz.
