Government Defines Liability oi Maker and Dealer in Handling Product. WASHINGTON, Sept. 30. As a re mit of the hearing given the wholesale and retail dealer in butter, Commis sioner of Internal Revenue Capers has ruled that whei dealers in butter have procured the article from manufacturers and creameries nnd it is found that the butter contains more than 10 per cent of water that it is then adulterated as process butter and is liable to special tax. Where the assignments of butter are to the merchant as a commission mer chant, or sold on commission, the manu facturer, and not the dealer, is liable to the special tax. Wlhcre the dealers buy the butter direct, however, and ns sum ownership at the outset, luibility is upon such dealers, with special in structions, however, to have such deal ers report from whom they bought, so that additional effort can be made to fix the special tux nlo upon the manufacturer. i The Coal ' Trust-Considering the hard feelings you have hud toward me, I certainly appreciate your order, Sammy.

IS A SUICIDE Robert Abbott Ends Life With a Bullet In a Fit of Des pondency. FINANCIAL TROUBLE CAUSE Shoot Himself a Closing Feature of a Fracas Started at Farewell Banquet to Departing Citizen Casta Gloom Over Town. ! Robert Abbott, Jr., of Warrenton, aged j 31 years, committed suicide Sunday 'morning at 2 o'clock 'on the railroad I tracks within 200 feet of the front of .his store In that town. He killed him- ' self with a 32-oaIiWr pistol a few min : utes after a fracas,' resulting from some I hot words passed at a banquet given in honor of the departure of Dr. Judd. I The deceased was a native of Warren ton, where he was well liked by every liody, and his violent death has cast a gloom over the village across Young's t River. He had been despondent for over i a week as the result of business worries. He wag not doing as well as be wished and to make matters worse, several of his creditors had pressed him for unpaid bills. Abbott was a cripple, having lost leg as a result, of an accident In a foot ball game several years ago. He ran a ! small confectionery and general store, and in addition aoted as central for the . Warrenton telephone service. It is re ported that he waa figuring on leaving the town for Southern Oregon to try ' big fortune, while other reports had him contemplating suicide for several days. Coroner Pohl was roused out of his bed ( In Astoria shortly after the young man's death and went over and examined the , remains. Later in the day he called a Jury together and held an inquest, the verdict being that Abbott came to his death from a pistol built fired by his own hand. The wholesale fight which took place just before Abbott blew his brains out, has caused considerable talk in both Warrenton and Astoria, Conflicting stories are rife, but none of them, ap pear to have any connection with the suicide. It is the general feeling that he was bent upon taking his own life previous) to the banquet given in honor of Dr. Judd' departure from the city. "We had nil Wen enjoying ourselves at the banquet." said Dave Halferty, of Warrenton, "and there must have Wen about 13 of us present. Bi b Abbott had risen to make a speech and he talked in an unusual strain. He went back to the days of his childhood and described liis experiences in Warrenton in the greatest detail. It seemed to be just a forerunner of what came afterward. "After he hud spoken at some length, a man named Keyes, a school friend of Judd's, who was present, said something about cutting out the ret of it. Frank Kelley did not know Keyes, and he ob jected to the interruption. Hot words then passed and Kelly took a' poke at Keyes for something he said to him. "The whole thing was a misunder standing, and to make matters worse, Judd pitched into Kelly for striking his friend. Abbott then grabbed hold of Judd and told him to leave Kelly alone, that he was a friend of his. Judd then smashed Abbott and in a minute they were rolling on the floor fighting. 1 can hardly remember what happened just then, but a number of the men present started to pitch into Kelly. "The next thing I can remember was that' Judd and Abbott were in a room by themselves, and when several of us broke open the door we found them fighting on the floor in the grasp of each other. . "We separated them and things Wgan to get quieter. In the meantime Kelly had disappeared nt we found that he had gone home. Hans Steinhauser, Judd and several othere were looking for Kelly, and the Dutchman was yelling like a crazy man. He is usually very quiet but at this time he was howling to gt-o chance at Kelly, while the oth ers were also looking for him. "Kelly came out of his room across thevjvny "about this time, saying that he could D soon find him.' Harry Mo- Dermott wm with him and I asked him what they were going to do, For an an swer he'hoved me up against a railing wnere i was out of the way. Kelly met the party, with somethine In hi handa which looked like a club and they all attacked him. The next thing I .knew mod Bad secured a gun with which to shoot Kelly, but the other took it from him. , . "We had gone to Doc Linton' to get the men fixed up who bad Wen hurt when the report came In that Abbott had shot himself. When we got out to the car track we found Abbott was dead, with a hole In his temple and a pistol was just slipping from hi right band." Dr. Judd did not have much to say re garding the fracas, except that it did not have anything to do with Abbott' committing suicide. In bis opinion th deceased had the intention in his mind Wfore the banquet, judging from hi manner. "Kelly came up to the celebration without Wing invited," he said, "and brought several bottles of champagu. Before that we had only beer. When Abbott was making a speech, Keyes. ia a humorous vein, asked one of the boy to pass the hat for a collection. Kelly was put out at this and said that Abbott was a friend of his and that he should be heard through. This brought on a row and at the end of it Abbot went out on the track and shot himself." Dr. Judd did not see why anything should be said of the affair, as it had no con- nection with the action of the deceased. "There is no truth in the story that I took champagne to th eelebration said Frank Kelly, "who waa in Astoria yes terday. "I had been to the office to white a few letter until after 10 o'clock, and went out with Harry MeDermott to get a glass of beer. He suggested that we go up to the farewell celebration and he took along a couple of bottles of wine. It must have been after 12 o'clock when we arrived. "This man Keyes interrupted Bob AbWtt while he was making a speech. ne luc&ea up a ius ana 1 aslced mm to keep quiet, but he replied in an insulting manner and shoved his fist under my nose. So, I gave him a slap and thea Judd took a punch at me. Bob grabbed him then and several others there got ready to pitch into me and I peeled off (Continued on Page 8 ) A Attorney Generals Meet in St. Louis.

The crop conditions are poor in Porto Rico this year, owing to the severe drouth, and I fear they will W next year. Our great trouble is that we have outgrown our transportation facilities.
