Particulars of Frisco Shooting.
Sax Fbancisco, Sept. 4. Ijst night
Fred Marriott was shot and soriouslv
wounded by Thomas II. Williams, Jr.
president of the California Jockey Club
andThrcxton Beale. ex-United States
minister to Persia and Greece. Mar
riott is publisher of the San Francis
Sews-Letter. The following account of
the shooting was given by Marriott be
fore he waa put under anthesthetics at
the hospital :
"An apioinimeni was niaie iv tele
phone for a meeting last evening by
Thruxton and Beale. About 9 o'clock
Beale and Wjlliam came to the house.
I answered the door myself. When
reaching out to take their hat, Beale
struck me a heavy blow in the fa?e, and
made another smash at me witlfhi
fist. 'Stnas'i him ! the 1 cried
Williams. I retreated, as the blow on
the forehead alncist blinded me. I
then started ustairs, and Williams be
Williams, on Is-imt interviewed said:
"Yes, Beale and myself did the shoot
ing, but tiicre is noiiiiiig to say. We
considered it our dutv to pnnish Mar
riott for the publication of. an article
last week reflecting on the reputation of
a young lady."
Neither Williams nor IVals, although
admitting the assault, would say who
i I lie shooting. After the shooting,
they went to the Pacific I'nion Club,
where they were placed mi ler arrest.
Marriott's wounds, it is thought, will
not prove fatally.

A Tragic Carnival Attraction Expo
sition 3ite Selected Panic on
Martinique Strike Pre?
Portland, Sept. 7. In an attempt to loop the loop,
John Larscn was dashed 75 feet through the air aud down
into the heart of the throng of spectators. He owed his
life to the fact that three men in the crowd were unabl; to
get out of the way. The Carnival was a drama wr.h a
deep uote of tragedy. "See him come," said a jesting
crowd, but in a second more every heart 'stood till. Ti ose
who for a moment ago were eager to crack a joke about the
loop-thc-loop were now anxious to know how many people
were killed. That a man could sail through the air for
75 feet, hanging to a 95-pouud bicycle, light upon the
heads of a dense crowd and no one be killed did not seem
possible to any. The strain was greatly relieved when
Larsen appeared before them apparently uuhurt. The
anxiety was now concerning -the people upou whom
he had fallen. As it was gradually learned that but three
people were h irt by the accident, aud these not seriously,
many remarks were heard as to the unnecessary danger
that had been undergone for the sake of a few moments'
amusement. P. G. George, Ja.ck Belmont and J. Elsworth
sustained slight injuries from being struck, either by the
rider or the bicyeje, but none of the injuries will prove
serious. The feat will probably not be attempted again

EXPOSITION SITE SELECTED.
Portland, Sept. 6. The Lewis & Clark Centennial
Exposition of 1905 will be held on the Guild's Lake tract,
at the foot of .Willamette Heights. It includes an area of
270 acres, 155 of which are water. The cost of fixing up
the lake aud rilling it with fresh water, according to engin
eers, will be $25,000. A pumping plant will have to be
bought to fill the lake after the stagnant water is drained
off. Adequate transportation features and the lake decided
the directors iu favor of that site. The general board will
approve of the selection at a general meeting next Fiiday.

London. Sept. k. There is no doubt that the Boer
Generals now in London arc popular with the people. This
afternoon Generals Delarey, Dewet and Botha left; their
hotel aud were driven in an open carriage to the Colonial
office. Immense crowds gathered in the streets alorg the
entire route, and as they drove by, bowing and tipping
their hats to the throng, they were given tremendous ova
tions. At times the crowd was so overwhelming that it
was necessary for the police to open a passage iu order to
permit the carriage to get through. At the Colonial office
Lord Chamberlain and Lord Kitchener were iu waiting
and received the famous Generals very cordially.

It jwiii from I he detailed account of
tuc accident at I'itttlr!d, in which one
man was kilicd and several hurt, in
rinding the President, who, with hi
companion, narrowly escaped a ci 5 leu
death, that there was earWiie on the
irt f Imth the motorui.in m the car
and the driver of the carriage-. There
was the enwsing, the car tracks aj-
jorently croiii tin wajon rad at an
acute angle; tlte iikotorm::n mut have
known that a carriage was Iikelv to
cross at anv moment, and the driver of
the carriage slmuld have calculated that
a car was likelr to come along at anv
moment ; therefore ltii should have
been sharply in the lookout. And what
were the President's ontriding guards
aliout that they did not ride ahead and
at such a place and make sure that the
carriage would nut lie driven into
lanegr there That it was dusty, so
that the vision was oliscurvd, is no ex
cuse: all the more reason then ft r ex
ercising caution, as a vessel must do in
fog. "IXjwn grade' Still another
reason for keepiug watch, and holding
the car well in hand; but it was not
even supplied w ith air brakes.
The Nation, whilo regretting the
death of tho faithful guard Craig, re
joices that the President escape I w ith
but trilling injuries. Possibly the ac
cident may serve as a lesson to motor-
men and drivers and to incline some of
them to the exercise of greater care.
