LEWIS KILLED HIMSELF
AT UNDERTAKERS' PLACE
Former Mui'shricld Mali Whose, Dcndi
Was Announced Last AW-k Com
Tho death at Salem of Thomas
Lowls, formerly In tho undertaking
and fiirulturo business In Marshfield
which was told In Tho Times last
wee);, was a suleldo. The Salem Cap
ital Journal of Wednesday tells of
tho death as follows:
"Neatly dressed and clean shavon,
T. Lowls, ngod about 00 years, took
potassium cyanldo and lay down on
tho roar stops of tho undertaking es
tablishment of Webb & Clough whore
his lifcloss body was found nt' 11:25
Just night. Lewis loft a note addressed
to his daughter, Mrs. M. II. Forbes,
Itural Routo No. 2, Klrkland, King
county, Washington, In which lie
stated that his personal belongings
wore at tho Depot hotol where ho ow
od a wcoIc'h board bill and if sh'c
wanted thorn, to pay the bill, and If
not to leavo them to tho owner of
tho hotel. Ho gavo no reason for his
act, but It Is thought ho was dospon
ilont, at his lack of money.
"On tho rovcrso side of tho noto
was written tho Information that ho
was u life monibor of Maishflcld
Aerlo No. fi.'IS, Fraternal Order of
Eagles, nt Coos Uay. Tho body was
found by F. E. Prlddy, tho night man
at tho undertaking parlors, who was
returning with nndthcr body and had
to pass through tho rear of tho build
ing. Lowls' body was found In n
shed at tlio Bide of tho rear door with
his head resting on IiIb hnnd grip.
A strong odor of tho poison was pre
valent about tho body and there was
no doubt as to tho means of Biilcldo
although tho bottlo containing the.
drug was not found. It is thought that
ho located tho undertakers, took the
poison and throw the bottlo away us.
ho know that death would soon fol
low. "Mrs. Forbes, tho dauglitor of tho
Buloldo, was Informed of tho denth
of hor father, but this morning no
word had bcoii rcculvod from hor ro
lallvo to tho disposition of tho body."

DIVORCES WITHOUT JUDGE?
Lawyors, Apparently, May Grant Ono
Los Angeles. Judges nnd lawyers
learned with surprise that through mi
amended provision of tlio htato consti
tution apparently any quallllcd attor
ney may grunt a decree of divorce.
This became known by tho recent
granting of three decrees In .Santa
Rosa by attorneys blttluj; as Judges pro
temporo nfter havIiiB been solocted to
try tlio actions of tho UtlKants them
selves without tlio sanction of the
court. Tho modified amendment reads;
"A caso in tho superior court may bo
tried by 11 Judgo pro temporo, who must
bo a member of tho bur, agreed upon
In writing by tho parties litlgaut vr
their attorneys of record nnd sworn to
try tho cause, and tho person so select
ed shall bo empowered to act In such
capacity In nil further proceedings lu
any suit or proceedings tried beforo
him until tho final Cletcrmliatlon there
of." Tho clauso "appiovcd by the court"
has been omitted from tho act.
