KILLED BY HIS
Nevada Rancher Shot Down
in a San Francisco
REVOLVER IN HIS HAND
Captain W. AV. Stephenson Breaks
Open Door to Room Occupied
by His Runaway Spouse
and Chill ion Bowcn.
3AN FRANCISCO. Cai.. Ausr. 5. (Spe
cial.) Captain W. W. Stopheiwon, a Ne
vada ranch owner, was shot and killed
thiB morning in apartments at 1015V4 Lar
kln street, by Chiliion BoTen. Stephenson
had come from Washoe, New, early today
and calling at his wife's rooms had found
Bowen occupying the same apartment
"with his wife, Lucy Florence Stephenson.
Stephenson kicked in the door, but before
he had gone many steps he was shot
twice by Bowen and fell dead. The wom
an, his faithless wife and mother of four
"I love Mr. Bowen more than my hus
band. That's why we were together."
Bowen, who Is also a Nevada rancher,
now occupies a cell at the City Prison.
He, with the woman, Lucy Florence
Stephenson, was taken into custody at
1015 Larkin street, the scene of the
crime, soon after 9:30 o'clock this morn
ing by Policeman M. J. O'Sulllvan. They
were taken to the City Hall Station, there
turned over to Detectives Mulcahey and
Matheson, and were later transferred to
the City Prison.
It was .shortly after 9 o'clock this morn
ing that W. AV. Stephenson was shot
down by the mtm who wrecked his home,
Chiliion Bowen. Bowen and Mrs. Stephen
son were living at 1015 LRrkin street,
and the wronged husband located them
there, although they were living under the
assumed namfs of Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Wilson. As soon as he found their room
he rapped upon the door and demanded
Hears Her Husband's Voice.
Mrs. Stephenson answered his call and
asked who was there. As soon as she
heard his voice she knew it was her hus
band, and turning to the man at her side,
"Oh. it Is Will. What shall we do?"
Bowen attempted to quiet hor. He got
out of bed, went to a dresser in the room
and secured his revolver. Then he turned
to the woman and told her he was ready.
She called to her husband again, who was
still clamoring for admission, and when
she asked him to wait a moment, ho
threw himself against the door and the
lock broke with a crash.
Grasping his revolver, which was con
cealed in his inside coat pocket, Stephen
Bon strode into the room. He did not see
Bowen at first. The room was dark and
the armed man whom he was seeking
stood partially concealed bohlnd the open
door. He turned, however, to look for
him, and as he did so, Bowen fired point
blank at his head at short range.
Reaches for His Weapon.
The bullet struck Stephenson in the chin
and staggered him. He turned partially
around to face the man who had sh.ot
him, but before he could get his weapon
from his pocket Bowen jumped behind
him and fired another shot In the back
of his head. Meanwhile the falthloss
wife, who had been screaming loudly for
help, jumped out of bed, and her husband
fell dead at her feet.
After the shooting, Bowen cooly placed
the revolver back In the bureau drawer
and said to the woman that he would go
out and find an officer and give hlmsclr
up. She besought him not to leave her
alone with the dead man, and he decided
to await fhe coming of the police.
The wait was not a long one. Police
man O'Sulllvan heard the shooting and
was at the room door just a few minutes
after the man fell dead. Bowen told him
quickly what had happened. He secured ,
the revolver with which he had done the
shooting and handed it to the policeman
and then submitted to arrest without any j
trouble. The woman wan taken to prison
with him, but she said she would have '
gone whether the police wanted her or
not. The man she loved was still alive
and and she would stay -with him to the :
Woman Is Very Nervous.
Mrs. Stephenson was extremely nervous
when questioned about her relations
with Bowen and the murder of her hus
band, but wanted It understood that thin
nervousness was duo entirely to the fact
that she was still suffering from the ef
fects of a surgical operation..
"My husband fell dead at my feet, killed
by the man I love," she said, "and I feel
that he got what he deserved. He would
have killed Chiliion had he been able to
get his gun first, and I think any man
has a right to defend his life. Bowen
and myself were together because L love
him and he loves me. I never denied,
oven to my husband, that I was In love
with Bowen. and it was my intention to
secure a divorce and marry him Just as
soon as we got back to Nevada.
"My husband was unkind, too. He
never allowed me to have any pleasure,
and I could not live without love. I mar
Tied my husband eight years ago. My
name before marriage was Lucy Florence
Clark. We have four children, Gertrude.
Edgar. Angus and Baby Willard, and
they were at our home in Nevada the
last I heard of them. They are fatherless,
but they are better off, for he was Just
as unkind to them as he was to me.
Driven Away by Husband.
"I met Chiliion Bowen during Decem
ber last, when he came to our place. He
lived there until my husband drove him
away. My husband wanted me to send
him away, but I would not do it. He
said he . would kill him If he ever saw us
together, and I did not resist the man's
going, for I knew my husband would
shoot It Js true that I wrote Chiliion
letters. I wrote because I loved him, and
I asked him to accompany me here. I
did not want to be alono In the city and
thought It best to havo some one near
me who understood me and could sympa
thize with me iu my sickness.
"We took the name of Mr. and Mrs.
Wilson, knowing that we could not be
together unless we lived as man b.nd wife.
"We were in bed when my husband
rapped on the door this morning. I rec
ognized his voice and told him I would
unlock the door in a few minutes, but
he would not wait for me to dress. He
broke the door down and was trying to
get his revolver out of his pocket when
Chiliion shot him. I believe he would
have killed us both had he been given an

BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 5. (Special.) The
attention of -Governor Gooding has been
called by a circular Ispued by the Anti
Adulteration League, with headquarters
in New York, to the .sale of patent medl- j
clnes that it Is alleged contain poison. The '

deter the Governor from acting vigorously
in the matter. He raid:
"Laws have been enacted in this state
to protect the public health and they will
be enforced. The pharmacy law specifi
cally gives the Board authority to anal
yze any patent or proprietary medicine

bottle contains such Ingredients that
should placolt In the polron. label list. I
propose to take the matter up and to In
sist on a rigorous Investigation, and any'
Improper medicine offered on the market
in Idaho will be condemned. I regard it
as a question of no little Importance."

Collins, fighting extradition for perjury
before Judge Lampman, contlnuod his ar
gument today on a motion for dismissal,
