THE MORNING OREGONIAN, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24, 190G.
IB TO Ei LIFE
Prisoner Cuts His Wrist With
Pair of Scissors,
WIFE HAD FAILED TO CALL
Douglas Stowe, Colored, Grows De
spondent Because She Did Not
Appear at Jail and Attempts
to Commit Suicide.
Because his wife did not visit him in
his cell in the County Jail yesterday,
Douglas Stowe, colored, grow despondent
end attempted to ta'ko his life by cutting
the veins in his left arm with a pair of
scissors. He inflicted a severe wound,
which bled profusely, but surgical assist
ance was at once summoned and the flow
6topped In tlmo to save his life.
Stowe was arrested on December 21 on
a charge of threatening to kill a colored
woman at 545 First street. Since Decem
ber 26 ho has been confined in the County
Jail, in lieu of $750 bonds, awaiting trial.
Twice each week the prisoners In the
Icounty Jail are allowed to see their
friends, and Stowe always waited eagerly
ifor visiting days, hoping his wife would
call. Twice she had come to visit him
since his incarceration, but yesterday she
failed to come. Stowe concluded that she
was not faithful to him. and attempted to
commit suicide after he had written a
note chiding his wife for her negligence
and affirming his innocence of the crime
tor which he was arrested.
Telephone From Wife.
Just after Stowo had slashed himself in
the arm with the scissors and was being
.toorae to a comfortable bed by the at
tendants a telephone call came from his
wife. She had been unable to come to the
(jail, but wanted to know If her husband
was In need of tobacco, or If there was
anything else that she could do for him.
, 'The attempt at suicide took place about
C o'clock in the afternoon, when most
of the prisoners were given the freedom
of the long corridor. The Chinese, Jew
Cun, who Is confined on a charge of mur
der, was the first to give the alarm.
Groans were heard from Stowe's cell, and
it was found that he had made use of a
pair of scissors which are given to the
prisoners for hair-cutting, to inflict the
wound. Th County Physician could not
be found, so Dr. Bristol and Dr. Gillette
were summoned. Stowe was very weak
from loss of blood, but the physicians
stated that he would recover unless
blood-poisoning sets in.
Inciter to His Wife.
The following Is the letter which Stowe
left for his wife:
"This is visiting day. and I have looked
forward to it as a day that the only one
that I love, my wife, "would come and
see me. but she has treated me worse
than she would her little dog. "Well. I am
hero under a charge I am Innocent of.
"When a person draws a gun on a man
lie has a right. I believe, to protect him
self the best way he can, but when peo
ple want to get a man out of the way
they will tell all kinds of lies and swear
to them. I have been here one month,
the 26th, and my wife has been to see
me twice, the only one I have trusted to
do anything for me, so I hope 1 may end
all my expectations of worrying her any
POLITICS AND THE MM
1QTJESTIOX OF INDORSING HIGH
SCHOOL 3IEX AS CANDIDATES.
It Will Come Up at Next Meeting
of Association for a
Shall state, county and city politics play
a. part in the policy of the Portland High
School Alumni Association? This ques
tlon will in all probability come up for
definite and final settlement when the
organization holds its next meeting. Fri
day evening. Several members of the
alumnae are candidates for political posi
tions, and a movement 1b on foot to give
their candidacy the benefit of the remain
der of the alumni in the form of an ex
It was rumored that resolutions, indors
ing High School men for office, would
be introduced at the last meeting of the
association, but the session passed with
out any action being taken. In fact.
the matter was not brought up at all, but
a great deal of discussion on the sub
ject took plac, both before and after the
session, and It Is understood that those
"who are in favor of the action will be
out in force Friday night.
It seems very doubtful, however, if any
resolutions of this character will be able
to control a majority vote. The sent!
anent that the association should steer
clear of politics Is freely expressed by
anany of the leading members, who see
much trouble ahead If the organization
should seek to play a part In electing can
didates for public office. The alumni as
sociation was organized, they assert, prl
Tnarily as a social body to keep alive the
friendships of school days and bring the
members Into friendly relations. If pol
itlcs once got a foothold, they say. there
is no telling where It would stop, and the
ultimate result would probably be to
create factions and cause discord.
Many of those who are opposed to glv
Jng any formal Indorsement of political
candidates are most heartily in favor of
the election of the high school alumni
who are known to be up for nomination
in the primaries. They intend to support
them personally in every way possible,
but believe that the matter should, be left
entirely to individual choice, and not pro
mulgated as a movement of the aseocla
"It is just like this." said a prominent
high school alumnus; "If we start to In
dorslng candidates simply because they
belong to our organization, every one. who
is up for office will expect recognition
from us, if he is- a high school alumnus.
"We cannot afford to begin a programme
like that. Among our alumni are Included
men of every political party Republicans,
Democrats, Socialists and even Prohlbl
tlonlsts. If two high school men came
up for the same office on separate tickets.
which one would we Indorse? No matter
how wisely we should manage It, hard
feelings? would be sure to result.
Charles Rybke, the retiring president of
the association. Is of the opinion that It
would be best to keep the alumni out of
politics. Of - course. It would be all
right if we could indorse one or two high
school men and stop with that. But we
could not very well do that, so it would
be better to keep the subject out alto
"I cannot Imagine who started this plan
to indorse the high-school candidates for
political offices," said Otto Kraemer. "It
would not do at all. and I think the plan
would best be abandoned. If it is brought
up at the next meeting, and I understand
it will be, I think it will certainly be de
Jay Upton, one of the former presi
Aats of the -body, is -one- of the leading
oDDonents of the movement "I am per
sonally in favor of the election of eeveral
of the high-school men who trill come up
for office and shall work for them per
sonally, but I would not think it good
policy for the alumni to act in the mat
ter." There are several thousand prominent
old students and alumni of the high
school and a formal Indorsement from the
association would be quite a pull for any
candidate. Only about 300 arc active
members of the association, but If a reso
lution were passed many of those outside
the organization would naturally be in
fluenced by it.
