has been no end of trouble to the health
boards of several states for the past
four or five months, will bother them
no more. He died ioday. His death
was not due to leprosy, according to
the doctors who examined him after
death, but to heart trouble.
Nevertheless, tire unfortunate's body
showed the rapid strides the disease
had made in the last ten days. Two of
his fingers and the toes of one foot
were almost off. his tongue was cov
ered with sores and badly swollen. The
officials of this county, after being noti
fied of his death, were at a loss how to
dispose of the body, but will probably
decide on cremation. ,
Raschid had been sent from county
to county and state to state in box-cars,
finally landing here. He was . quaran
tined, and r.o one ventured near him
except physicians, andsthe disposition
of the unwelcome guest had become a
problem to the authorities. It wa's re
cently suggested that he be deported to
his native land, and the local authori
ties were negotiating -with the Govern
ment with such an object In view when

Rev. W. J. Hindley Thinks Certain
' Spokane Man Is Unjustly Accused.
Two Men Arrested on Sus
picion Are Released.
- ' ,4
SPOKANE, Wash.. Oct. 19. (Special.)
fiev. W. J.. Hindley. who returned
today from Portland, brought informa
tion which ' would indicate that Reno
Hutchinson ' had feared he would be
murdered for six weeks before his
tragic death.' This knowledge has led
Mx. Hindley to abandon the theory
that the Y. M. C. A. secretary was mur
dered by hold-up men. who were wait
ing: for a victim at Seventh avenue and
Howard street. Mr. Hindley was in
formed today that two different men
bad been seen running in opposite di
rections from the scene of the" mur
der, just after its commission; also of
the peculiar behavior of watch dogs
in the vicinity of the crime, but said
these circumstances would not cause
him to deviate from hie belief that an
enemy had assassinated Mr. Hutchin
son. . .
"Friends of Mr. Hutchinson are
aware that his. nerves were shattered
by some secret worry during the last
six weeks," said Mr. Hindley. "I have
learned In those week he lost more
than 20 pounds in weight. When the
coffin, was" opened in Portland his
friends .would not believe that the
body they saw was that of Mr. Hutch
inson. An undertaker down there
asked-': 'Why did they not fill out the
cheeks with cotton when the corpse
was. prepared for burial in Spokane?'
I answered: The corpse you see
looks as Mr. Hutchinson looked before
his death.' The young man's friends
"These friends and I talked over the
matter and they became convinced that
he had been assassinated by an enemy.
I 'am satisfied that the man suspected
In Spokane is not guilty, and it has
also been nroven to my satisfaction
that a rejected Suitor for the hand of
Mrs. Hutchinson did not commit the
"Mr. Hutchinson told me' but a short
time ago that the Spokane man had been
courteous to him and had wished him
every success In his new work. As to the
former suitor of Mrs. Hutchinson, who
was -said to have made- threats against
Mr. Hutchinson at one time, it is known
that he was in a Western Oregon city on
the day of the murder and spent that
night in the city where he has "been living.
"Although Mrs Hutchinson knew that
some secret worry was annoying her hus
band, he never confided to her the cause
of his trouble. He may have received
anonymous letters or secret threats, but
kebt silence. His secret died with him.
"But there is no doubt in my mind that
Mr. Hutchinson was assassinated. While
an enemy, if he had one, may not have
committed the crime, there are men who
could have been hired to commit it. From
my experience, I believe there are men in
this city who would commit such a deed
for $1000. This may explain why a strange
man searched so diligently for Mr. Hutch
inson on the day he was murdered."
Frank Dalton and Robert Harner, ar
rested on suspicion of connection with the
Hutchinson murder, were, released today.
The automatic revolver theory was shat
tered today. The bullet which killed
Hutchinson was an ordinary revolver ball.

that, when the first case under the em
