SPOKANE OFFICERS BELIEVE
SCICIDE WAS ATTEMPTED.
Story That Burglar Sent Bullet to
Chest Xot Borne Out by Girl
Lodger In Adjoining Room.
SPOKANE. Wash, Nov. t. (Spe
cial.) "The burglar forced me to lead
him to the house and into my room
and shot me when I grappled .with
him," persists Sam Loy, 21 years old,
who has only an even chance to liva
with a bullet abov his heart. On the
other band, half the force of city de
tectives, a number of uniformed police
and a woman who rooms In th house
believe that young Loy shot himself.
The mystery of the shooting early
this morning has given rise to a num
ber of theories but there is no known
motive for an attempt at suicide.
Mary Hasbrouck. who lives In the
same dwelling with Loy, says . she
heard him coma in. heard only his
footsteps on the stairs, heard him
moaning also in his room, and heard
the shot but cannot by th wildest
flight of Imagination summon up ths
impression that a scufne was taking
place. Neither did she hear anyone
run out of the house after the shoot
ing, which was done with a pistol,
which had been owned by the grand
father of Loy and was in Loy's trunk.
The relatives stoutly Insist that Loy
must have been shot by an unknown
thug and they profess to believe every
word the young man has uttered on
