Pendleton. Or., Jane 24. T. , O.
White, an Umatilla rancher, this
evening shot his wife and her neph
ew, wounding them slightly, and
then killed himself with a revolver.
Mrs. White had just left town,
where she had consulted a lawyer
with a view of obtaining a divorce
on the ground of cruel treatment.
About s o clock this evening, aB
Mrs. White, her 7-year-old daugh
ter, Grace, and ber nephew, a 16-
year-old boy named Morton, were
driving from this city to the Nor
ton ranch, ten miles west of ren-
dleton, T. O. White, the husband of
the woman in the buggy, rode up
from behind the rig until even with
the seat upon which his wife sat,
and without a word leveled a re
volver at her and fired five shots in
U pon the hr&h shot . the woman
received a wound in the left wrist,
which caused hex to fall into the
bottom of the rig. Two more buV
eta also took eftec and caused
flesh wounds in her back. .- None
of the wounds, however, proved se
rious, and with proper care Mrs.
White may recover, unless blood
poison sets in in her wrist, fiom a
few threads which were pulled into
the wound with the bullet.
The boy wno was driving receiv
ed a flesh wound in his left kne
which is thought Jo have been caus
ed by the bullet which struck Mrs.
Wright's "wrist glancing irom T her
arm to his leg.
After White had fired upon bis
wife he evidently concluded that
she was dead, and, . turning his
horse, he'rode back toward the city
about a quarter of a mile, where he
dismounted irom bis horse and af
ter rtljadicg bis revolver placed it
in the middle of his forehead and
blew his brains out.
A coroner's jury was sworn in
and in company with Coroner Hen
derson and' Deputy Sheriff Blakely
went to the scene of . the tragedy
A search of the Buicide s pccsets re
vealed numberless trinkets, which
it was learced that he had wondur
ing the afternoon at a shootiug gal
lery foui necties, two pocket
knives, and $4.bo in money.
Around his, neck suspended by
a gold chain, was a woman's gold
wa'cb, apparently new. From
case in bis pocket, it is surmised
that this was purchased in Port
land, from" which city he had just
returned, and it iff thought that it
was to be used as a "peace-sffering
to his wile to aid in a reconciliation
inis 8iiernoon Mrs, wnite was
en her way to the city with her eld
est child and her nephew, C. Nor
too. A short distance from , the
city they were met by White, who
called to them to halt. The bov
drove on rapidly, White following
up with threats to do them bodily
barm. ' As soon as they arrived
Mrs. White went to William New
berry's office for the purpose of be
ginning divorce proceedings.
Mrs. White stated that White
had at various times threatened to
shoot her and the three email chil
dren, and, fearing that he would
carry his threat into execution, she
had left her husband the first uf
this month and had been living
with her brother, Al Norton, ten
miies from the city.
Mrs. White, being almost a nerv
ous wreck -because of her husband's
cruel. and inhuman treatment, re
mained in the attorney's : office-un-til
6 o'clock this evening, fearing
that White would see her and
shoot. x Between 6 and 7 o'clock
Mrs White and her nephew started
for the Norton ranch. As they left
the city they were closely: watched
by White. : The husband then pro
cured a horse from a livery stable,
armed himself and started in pur
on the roadside. : !
The remains were brought to the
morgue in this city at midnight.

Lodz. Russian Poland, June 24.
Yesterday, "Black Friday" in Lodz
surpassed all the horrors of Red
Sunday" in St. Petersburg. While
is not yet possible to ascertain
the exact number of the victims,
estimates place the killed and
wounded as high as 2000.
The troubles here were initiated
by the social democrats and Jewish
bund, who determined to avenge
their comrades killed in the rioting
on Wednesday. y ,
Thursday tbe feast of Corpus
Christi pasEed off quietly, but dur
ing the night workmen attacked the
patrol, in this hghting two omcers
and seven Cossacks were killed
One of the latter was shot by a girl
of 13 years, r-'r
Friday was a day of terror. The
city was given up to bloodshed,
Anarchy and fierce street fighting
prevailed all aay. Barricades were
hurriedly constructed in the Jewish
Quarter at dawn. Men climbed to
the roots of bouses, cutting tele'
phone and telegraph wires to use
for entanglements m the streets,
while - others cut down telegraph
poles and used tbem m strengthen
Ing their barricades which already
had been constructed and in build
ing others. . ; " -
Early in tbe day two bombs were
throwi from the- crowd into the
barracks, killing or wounding 2O
soldiers. : . - : , . ' .
T&9 started the sheddine
tloociAvshicb Continued until ' ttfter
crghtfall. ' . ,
At 11. o'clock all the factory
nds struck and i flocked into the
ttreete. OoEaacks, Drrgoons and
infantry charged the dense, eurg
ing mobs time after time, firing vol
ley after volley into the serried
mass. The i rioters later replied
with revolvers, while their com
rides on roofs and in windows join
ed in the fusilade. Some dashed
vitriol irom points 01 vantage upon
the troopers in the streets below.
The burning fluid drove its victims
Into a frenzy and led to scenes of a
terrible character. ,
Fighting continued throughout
the day, and only diminished in its
intensity at nightfall, when the city
was plunged into utter darkness, as
practically all the street lamps had
been destroyed. Even then occa
sional volleys and isolated rifle shots
were heard in different quarters, the
troops having received orders to
shoot any person appeancg in the

New York, June 23. A New
York agent for one of the big Amer
ican firms which has extensive in'
terests in the Far East, including a
branch at Port Arthur, said today
that be did not look for any serious
complications aB a result of the ac
tion of the Japanese government in
ordering foreign merchants from
Port Arthur. He said the Japan

government to do at some future
time, and that not only foreign but
native merchants are affscted by

The Russian plan was to make
Port Arthur purely a fortress and to
