and attorney, la lying near death at St.
Vincent's Hospital aa the result of bul
let wounds Inflicted yesterday morning
by hla wife, who killed herself with tha
am weapon. Attending; physicians
offer little hone for the recovery of
Peachln, aa an X-ray photograph shows
there are two pieces of lead resting on
hla brain. The tragedy, which Is said
to have been caused by jealousy, took
place at the Peachln home on the
tarada electric line.
It la Impossible to determine from
the X-ray photograph whether the two
bits of lead are different bullets, or
fragments of one. if the former Is the
rase, the wounded man's rase Is almost
hopeless, say attending physicians.
Letters written by Mrs. Peachln Fri
day evening to members of the family
Indicate that the crime was premedi
tated. She was of hysterical tempera
ment, say friends, and was Jealous of
Wards Lead Kboatlag.
On account of his wife's frail health,
fergednt Peachln recently obtained per
mission from his superiors to reside
outside the city, and established a home
at Wichita station, on the Katacada line.
The parents of Mrs. Peachln, Mr. and
Mrs. Conrad Krlgbaum, living at Ksta
radit, were visitors and occupied the
house, while Peachln and his wife slept
In a tent In the yard. The parents say
there was nothing to Indicate trouble
Friday night except that a low-toned
ronrersatlon was carried on for soma
tlmw after the Poachlna retired.
An alarm clock had been set to
awaken Peachln at 4:0, so that he
might report for duty at the atatlon
hi its regular hour In the morning.
Mrs. Peachln awakened before that
tlmn, and appears to have made her
prepare tlona for the act. using Peach
In's police revolver. The wounded man.
who discussed the affair briefly at the
hosDltal. said they had a few worda and
then she began shooting.
Wossaa Fire six Shots.
Six shots were fired, two going wild,
one wounding Peachln's hand and two.
It Is believed, striking blm In the head.
Wounds appear in the face and In the
back of the head, but tr. Fred Ztegler
Is unable to determine whether or not
one of tbem was mode by the egress of
the bullet which entered at the other
side. The last shot Mrs. Peachln turned
upoa herself. Inflicting a wound In the from which she died Immedi
ately. Te parenta of Mrs. Peachln rushed
to the tent and found the wife lying on
the floor with her night dress afire
from the burning powder. Peachln
moaned to them to take the gun away
fros her. Assistance was called and
the wounded man waa rushed to the
hospital, while the Coroner from Oregon
City, within whose Jurisdiction the
shooting occurred, took charge of the
wonian'a body.
Pearala Reeewtly Preaaoted.
Peachln had no close associates In
the department, but waa well liked. He
waa of quiet manner and good presence.
'or several years he had been a traffic
ofnner stationed at Fifth and Morrlaon
streets, and waa well known to the
shopping public for hla courtesy. A
month ago he waa promoted to a ser
iceaacy, and a few daya later took a
leave of absence In order to present
himself for examination for admission
to the bar. He qualified and would
hav. left the department soon to take
up he practice of law.
