CHIEF KILLS ANARCHIST
(Continued from page 1) (Continued from page 1)
When he rang the door bell at tin
latter hour, the chief himself answc.r
ed the call. -
ma. t nnPd the door" said the
o r -
chief, "the man raised his hat and I
allowed him to step into the hallway.
He handed me an envelope. I glanc
ed at it and the thought struck me
that he was up to some wrong. He
looked like an anarchist and I grab
bed his arms and called to my wife
who was in another room. When
she ran into the hallway I said:
"Mother, see if this man has a revol
ver? she felt id one of his back pock
ets' and said he had. I tried to hold
him with one hand and draw my re
volver with the other, but he jerked
away and fell against the door. I
caught him again and while we were
struggling, my son, who was up
stairs, startedto my aid. He was
only a few steps from the bottom of
the stairs when the man. freed one
hand, drew his revolver and fired two
shots at Harry. Then Foley, who
had been summoned by my daughter,
stepped into the hallway and the man
shot him. The anarchist kicked my
wife to one side and by this time I
had secured my revolver and both
Foley and I opened fire. At my first
shot, which struck him in the head,
he fell I fired three more, one in
his head and two in his body. Two
of Foley's shots also struck the as
sassin." Both the chief and Mrs. Shippy
assert that the life of the former was
saved by the bravery of their son.
The young man who is a student at
Culver Military Academy, is 18 years
old. He was borne because of illness
: and hastened to his father's aid when
he heard the struggle in the hall.
"The man had drawn a great knife
and had plunged at my husband," said
Mrs. Shippy this afternoon.
"The knife was drawn back ready
for another blow when Harry struck
the man's hand, knocking the weapon
to the floor. The man kicked me and
the shots came, Harry falling, and I
saw blood on his chest. He exclaim
ed, 'Papa, I'm shot!' but he saved his
"I might have been shot and kill
ed if my boy had not come to my as
sistance." said the chief. "Mother
was too terrified to do anything.
She was helpless as soon as she felt
the revolver in the man's pocket."
One of the places" raided by the
police after the' shooting was the
headquarters of a society known as
"Edelstadt Group" at 42 Union street.
Pictures of Herr Most and other well
known anarchists were confiscated as
were about 1000 hand bills announc
ing a series of meetings at which
Emma Goldman is scheduled to speak.
The library, a short distance away,
was also invaded by the police and
several hundred pamphlets dealing
with anarchy and kindred subjects
The would-be assassin of Chief
Shippy was identified ' tonight as
Lazarus Averbuch, who lived with
his sister at 218 Washburn avenue. He
was a Russian student about 22 years
old. He came to America from Aus
tria about three months ago and had
heen here about three weeks. The
plan to kill Shippy is believed to be
the direct result of the latter's inter
ference of a parade of the unemployed
several weeks ago.

Jos. Stephens Adams of the Austro-

Gen. Adams is armed with creden

Women should understand that
melancholia, commonly called "the
blues," is in nine times out of ten a
sure symptom of some serious female
organic derangement and should
have immediate attention.
Women whose spirits are
depressed, and who are ailing
and miserable, should rely upon
LYDIA E. PINKHAM'S
as is evidenced by following letters.
Mrs. F. Ellsworth, of Mayville.
N. Y, writes to Mrs. Piiikham :
" For three rears I was in an awful
despondent and nervous condition
caused by female troubles. I was not
contented anywhere, and wasjn such
constant fear that something terrible
was going to happen that it seemed as
though I should lose my mind. Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
restored my health, and I cannot say
enough for it."
Mrs. Mary J. Williams, of Bridge
port, 111., writes to Mrs. nnkhara:
"l have been suffering from a female
trouble, backache and headaches, and
was so blue that I was simply indespair.
I feel it my duty as well as my pleasure
to tell you that Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound cured me. The
change In my appearance is wonderful,
and I wish every suffering ' woman
would try it"
FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN.
For thirty years Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Cdmpound, made :
from roots and herbs, has been the
standard remedy for female ills,
and has positively cured thousands of
women who have been troubled with
displacements, inflammation, ulcera
tion, Irregularities, periodic pains,
backache. Why don't you try it
ricd out, will give an impetus to that
enterprise, that Astoria cannot afford
According to Mr. Reed, in a com
munication just at hand, if Astoria
wants the line within her borders,
she must contribute the right-of-way
hither, or at least to a waterfront on
Young's Bay. And, he continues, if
Seaside decides to build a "Chinese
wall" around the project, also, and
will not allow the company to build
from there to the Nehalem on the
basis suggested, the Hawgood people
will build, this spring, from the Wil
lamette Valley, in a northwesterly
direction, to Jewell, or Elsie, in this
county, and thence down the lower
Nehalem Bay, and to Astoria.
If the pending Seaside offer is ac
cetped and the road starts out from
there, it intends to rely on the
Killingsworth Law, of 1905, to get
into this city over the tracks of the
A. & C. end of the Northern Pacific
system; and anticipates conclusions!
with a strong opponent in lumber!
and other staples; the shorter haul
into Seaside from the Nehalem for
ests, giving the Seaside milling con
cerns a huge advantage over the As
toria plants as to cost of handling and
quicker and cheaper delivery.
The Astorian is not in a position
to forecast the result of President
Hawgood's last despatch in the
premise; but it may suggest that from
the c61or of things as represented by
Mr. Reed, it is time Astoria Was

This valuable remedy has lecn long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to 1 the liest of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it wtll always be

satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout

riety of subjects was considered by
the House today. A resolution was
passed authorizing the immigration
committee to investigate the charges
of peonage in certain states. In tic
debate on that question Clark of
Florida denounced the assistant attor
ney general Russel in connection with
cetrain prosecutions in Honda and
referred sarcastically to Attorney-
General Bonaparte. There followed
lively discussion of the bill to d
port, after serving their sentences all
aliens convicted of felony. The
measure was defeated. Four hundrc
pension bills and few other private
bills were passed and the rcmainde
of the time was consumed in consid
ering thc postoflke appropriation hill
which it is said will be discussed for
several days. An important bit of
legislation was offered in the House
by Hey bum through bills imposing a
tax of SO cents per hundred shares of
stock or agreements to sell.
