Portland, July 7. Oregoniao:
Crazed with jealousy because her
hatband was courting the affections
of a woman reputed to be of the
lower world, Cora White, wife of
James White, of sailor-boarding
house fame, at 8:35 o'clock last
night shot her husband in the back
with a 32-calibre Iver-Johnson re
volver, inflicting a wound from
which the attending physicians fear
the wounded man will not recover.
The murder ' was attempted in
front of the residence of - Mrs.
White's sister, Mrs, Eii Davis, at
328 pine ttrcet, and was witnessed
bv F. S. Dunning aud C. R. Collier
and, it is thought, by White's moth
er and Mrs. Eli Davis, although the
latter two deny any knowledge of
the an dir. ; .
After White was shot the woman
for the pleasure of whose company
he will probably give bis life enter
ed several saloons in the north end,
where she laughed and joked about
his shooting, and was apparently
little concerned in regard to his
welfare. She displayed a bruised
spot on her face, where, she said,
she bad been struck by Mrs. White
earlier in the evening, when, in the
company of White, she had acci
dentally met the wounded man's
wife on the street.
"It was me to the wco3e," she is
quoted as having remarked.
It was fully an hour , after the
shooting before White was convey
ed from the home of Eli Davis,
where be had been carried after the
shoe ting, to St. Vincent's hospital,
wbi rs the attending physicians de
cide J that nothing could be done
for the wounded man until ionam
mat on arrises at the feat of the
but "t and discloses its whereabouts.
W ite, who had been drinking,
was in no condition to make any
stat ment. At first, , he stated that
the woman had fired twice at him.
Lat -, he changed this statement,
sayi ig that a man had shot him,
and still later he alleged to have
fired the shot himself. He refused
to tell the name of the woman or of
the man implicated in his state
When the shot was fired, Officer
Olesner was less than a block dis
tant, and hurried to the scene of the
"I reached White's side at the
same time as Mrs. Davis," said the
officer last night. "He was about
50 teet north of the gateway to the
Davis home when I r ached him.
The first thing I asked him was if
he had shot himself, and he an
swered, "yes, accidentally.' We car
ried him into Davis houee where
he said: A .- '. .
"I want to see Cora. I guess its
all off with me. It was all my
fault, anyhow. I caused all the
"I asked Mrs. White who shot her
husband," said officer Robeon, "and
she replied, 'I'm. the woman.' As
she was bending over the prostrate
form of her husband as he lay
stretched on a lounge, I heard her
say to him, 'I only wish it had been
me instead of you.' On the way to
the police station, in the petrol
wagon, Mrs. White would say noth
ing. She appeared to be struggling
hard from fainting and' seemed
powerless to speak. White said he
did not want his wife arrested, and
repeated the statement that he had
shot himself. '
- Mrs. White spent last night in
the police station.
The position of the wound and
other circumstances go to show it
would have - been impossible for
White to have inflicted the wound
upon himself. The ballet hole is
in such a part of the back as to
render it impossible for a man to
discharge a revolver and inflict such
a Wound to himself. A powder
burned coat proves that the ballet
was fired at short range and the
clean hole in the coat, as well as in
White's back, show that the shot
was fired squarely from behind. -
When seen last night Mrs. White
refused to speak. When question
ed she gazed into space as though
dated. MrB. White and her sister,
Mrs.. Davis, were raised in Clark
county, Washington, .where they
were well known, being the daugh
ters of a prominent farmer named
Allen. . :-. ;
According to acquaintances of
White, who frequent North End
resorts, Whits aud the woman who
caused the trouble between he and
his wife have been : spending their
time in riotous living for the past
two months. Hack parties at night
and sprees of several days duration
made the nights memorable, and
many of White's friends have en
joyed bis generosity while be has
has been entertaining the woman
who has ruined his home. -
