Walla Walla, May 6. (Special) Z,
Champoux was banged here at 6:11
this morning for the murder of Miss
Lottie Urate, Into whose brain he
drove a dagger because the young
woman refused to marry him. The
execution was the first under the new
law providing that all hangings shall
take place at the penitentiary.
Chamopux punned a good night and
slept soundly, He seemed entirely
reconciled to the fate which his crime
hoi broubht him .to, and expressed the
belief that he would Immediately go to
heaven. After a hearty breakfast he
was marched to the room In which the
scaffold had been erected, and with
Arm step mounted the gallows. Of
the 60 persons present he seemed the
calmest and never once betrayed the
least nervousness as his hands were
strapped and other necessary prepa
rations made. His last words were,
"God bless you all." A moment later
the trap woe sprung and Champoux'
body shot downward. The neck was
broken by the fall, paralysis was in
stantaneous, and death ensued . In IT
minutes The utmost effort waa put
forth to save the neck of the mur
derer, but the courts refused to grant
him a new trial. Even when the death
warrant was Issued the murderer's-'
attorneys sought to prevent the exe
cution, on the allegation of Irregular
ity because the warrant was addressed
to the "superintendent of the peniten
tiary," when there la no such official
designated In the law.

Bodies of Three Men Found on
Railroad Track Not Kilted
by Train as at First
Rutland. , Vt, , May t. Attaches at
the sheriff, office have unearthed evi
dence which they believe will prove
that three men who were supposed ts
have been ktlted by train, on the Rot
land railroad were robbed and mur
dered In a roadhouse on the ouUkirt
of this city and their bodies placed oa
the railroad tracks by the' marderera.
In some respects the case resembles
that of the notorious Bender family,
years ago in Kansas.
Since the finding of the body of
Joseph Murray on the railroad tracks
near the house last June the sheriff's
department has been working on a
murder theory. A note found near
the body caused them to put aside the
Idea that Murray was killed by a train,
but they never made much progress
on the case until within a few days.
It Is now thought certain that Murray
was killed for a few dollars and that
his murderers will shortly be placed
Stories of wild orgies which have
taken place In the roadhouse and which
was followed by the disappearance of
the men who, until recently, it waa
thought had left the country, are now
being investigated, but the police say
they will only .be able to charge one
murder, that of Murray,. against the
persons they suspect.

WOMAN CAPTURES THIEF.
Chases Miscreant, Laden With Jewelry.
r Into Street at Point of Revolver.
New" York, May 6. A courageous
woman with a revolver has brought
about the capture of a thief In the
Bronx upon whose person Jewelry was
found valued at $3000, together with
stolen promlsory notes for $2000. The
heroine was Mrs. Daly, sister-in-law
of a New York merchant The latter
and his wife were absent when Mrs
Daly visited one of the bedrooms where
her sister', child lay asleep. She was
surprised to find a stranger ransack
ing the family Jewel case and catching
up a pistol, chased him Into the street
A dozen patrolmen Joined the chase
and under Mrs. Daly's lead they sur
rounded the thief In a vacant lot After
considerable "parley he surrendered
under threats of being shot to death.
Every pocket In his clothing was
filled with fine Jewelery, evidently the
proceeds of several burglaries.
