Walter Clyalt Deal and H Wite
EDY AT ALBINA
Indulgence in Liquor, Is Thought to
Have Been a Powerful Contribut
ing Factor in the Motive.
Portland, Sept. 29. In a jealous
frenzy, probably intensified by liquor,
Walter Clyatt shot his wife and then
sent a bullet crashing through his own
brain, dying instantly.
The tragedy occurred shortly after 1
o'clock this morning, at 364 Russell
street, where the Clyatts resided. The
dead man was a plumber, and lived with
his wife in the rear of his shop. The
woman is still alive. Dr. Hamilton, who
attended her says she may recover.
Miss Haberccttel, who lives with her
parents at No. 339, across the street from
the scene of the tragedy, and Miss
Lenora Hcrton, who lives at 382 Union
avenue, were aroused by the shots, in
quick succession. A moment afterward
a woman, attired In a black robe, reeled
across the street to the Habercettel gate
and said something about a revolver.
Mies Horton thought from the woman's
strange actions that she must be In
liquor. The Habercettels, however, soon
saw something serious was the matter,
and helped her across the street to her
"Give me some morphine!" she ex
claimed brokenly. ''Walter wanted me
to follow him, and I want to do so."
People who went to the Clyatt house
noticed a pitcher of beer on the table.
Ti.a dead man, they learned, had also
called at a near-by saloon for a flask of
whisky, but it was not given to him.
Hence it is thought that over-indulgence
in liquor was the direct cause of ti e
The woman, who is at St. Vincent's
hospital, told her story today in a some
what incoherent manner. Stijsaid her
self and husband had been to the expo
sition. When they came borne, Clyatt
got some beer. He kept repeating to her
that thev would goto Hades together.
She thought he was only joking, as he
had often made such remark;. He would
not undress or go to bed until she blew
out the light. There was no revolver in
the house. He said he wanted some
tobacco, and would go to the house and
get it meaning his mother's house at
Sacramento street and Union avenue,
near by, where live his several brothers
and sisters. When he returned he
crawled over to the rear part of the bed in
which Mrs. Clyatt was lying. At the
some moment he placed the revolver
against the back of her head and fired ;
then turned it upon himself. One of the
three shots he fired missed its mark.

Boers Gathering on Border Eifebty
Men ol the Orange Free State
Artillery Have Arrived and Taken
. Their Positiono at Vollisrust Point,
Close to the Natal Border.
London, Oct. 5. The general drift of
news indicates that the position of the
British troips in South Africa is critical,
owing to the delay in sending reinforce
ments, and In the event of liostilitits
early reverses are regarded as probable.
The latest advices thow that the Trani-
vaal mobilization has been rapid and
comprehensive. Many Boers, it is said,
did not wait to be commanded, but pro
ceeded to the border spontaneously. It
is calculated that the Orange Free .State
already has 7000 men on the border.

Absence of News.
London, Oct. 2. The announced In
tention of the British cabinet to meet to
morrow has apparently been recon
sidered. It is now said that the meeting
depends largely upon the developments
in the Transvaal.
The date for summoning parliament
has not been definitely settled, although
it is laid to be October 19. The queen
will hold a private council at Balmoral
at an early date, when the necessary
proclamation will be signed. The remark
able absence of news from South Africa
this morning leads to the belief that
there has been a widespread cutting ol
telegraph wires or that an extra censor
ship has been established. Tli rj is no
Transvaal news yet todnv, s there is
nothing to soften the txcitement and
bellicosity caused by yesterday's dif
patches; neither is there anything to
indicate that the authorities at Pretoria
have the slightest desire to crme to terms
peacefully with Cireat Britain.

Charles P, Kngaii who

result of the language employed by him
befoie the war investigating commissioii,
hopes to obtain vindication from congress
during the coming session.
General Eagan Is at Washington to

There is no intention on tho part of
the administration to restore General
Eagan to duty. It fact, it is desired that
he should apply for retirement in order
that the president mv appoint Colonel
Weston, now acting commlssnry-jenera',
a brigadier and commissry-generjl of

to do all he c m f.ir the coloni I. During
