As soon as possible a reporter for

Mr. Barker complied by handing over
a telegram, just then at hand, from
F. R. Robbins, of Chicago, treasurer
of The A. Booth Company, and one
of its largest stockholders, to the fol

"Continue business, as usual, under

The common council last night met
only to adjourn. The principal object
of the session was to receive the final
report of the charter amendment com

inasmuch as it developed that the
amendment was not mute ready to
leave the hands of the attorneys the
session adjourned, to meet again in
regular meeting on Monday week,
That this delay will be viewed as
not an unmixed evil will probably be
the thought of many. Hard as have the

WILL WED HIS NURSE.
Aged California Physician Thui Ex
pects To Repay Young Woman.
LOS ANGELES, Sept, 11
Brought to death's door by the ex
citement incident to a court trial in
connection with land frauds in Ore
gon, Dr. David M. Goodwin, 75 years
old, a long time resident of this city,
is determined to wed Miss Mary A.
King, his faithful friend and nurse.
Miss King obtained a marriage license
at the courthouse yesterday. She sta
ted that the marriage was the urgent
wish of the aged physician, who was
believed to be near death.
Miss King was very reluctant to
discuss her approaching marriage with
the aged physician, but she admitted
that the wedding would take place as
soon as Dr. Goodwin rallied from an
unusually severe' spasm of pain. She
refused to state the time at which
the marriage would occur, claiming
that it depended upon the instructions
from his physician.
Friends of the old doctor say that
his wish to marry the woman who has
been his constant attendant is for the
purpose of leaving her what remains
of his once large fortune. He is said
to have lost a fortune in the failure
of the .California Box & Lumber Com
pany, several of whose officers were

STOPS THE COINAGE. ,
Bankers Find A Fault In The New
$20 Gold Pieces.
San Francisco, Sept. 11. After coin
ing $430,000 in $20 gold pieces of the
latest design, the local mint, acting
under orders of the treasury depart
ment, has stopped work on tne coins
and is awaiting the arrival of new dies
which are expected to correct a fault
discovered by local bankers. With one
ground of complaint eliminated by the
restoration of the "In God We Trust,"
motto, the public has manifested no
hesitation in accepting the new dou
ble eagles, but the bank tellers com
plain that the coins will not stack
in such manner as to be accurately
counted when they are handling both
old and new coins. After several
bank balances had been reported se
riously inaccurate, report of the mat
ter was made to Washington and the
order to stop coining was the result.

Armed with t ride, Miss Annie Cop

fired as rapidly as she could into a

the girl fought a battle with the men
and won the victory.
According to the mother's story the
men were shouting and singing and
the girl stepped out upon the front
stoop and requested them to desist.
One of the men, the girl declares, fired
at her. She immediately secured a
rifle and returned to do battle. Every
bullet she fired found a mark. As soon
as the two men fell the others fled.
Half an hour later the young woman
was arrested by a deputy sheriff.
