Chicago, July 11 .Governor Charles
S. Deneen of Illinois, in Chicago today
in conference with his lieutenants, is
expected to announce his final decision
to defy the "bull moose" cartv and re
fuse adherence to Roosevelt. That this
action will be promptly met by the thinjl
party placing complete state and con
gressional tickets in the field In Illinois
this fall is practically certain.
eaui Mccormick s statement yester
day, made after a conference with Colo
nel Roosevelt, was regarded as a chal
lenge to Deneen cither to come into the
Roosevelt fold or face a rival Republi
can candidate at the polls.
At a conference last night the old La
Follette crowd and the Roosevelt ad
herents compromised their differences
and a call was issued for a state con
ference in Chicago next Monday. At
that time a date will be set and a call
issued for the state convention to select
delegates to the Roosevelt national con
vention August 5 with 'Governor De
neen'a decision before Monday's confer
ence action probab)y will be taken at
that time on a Roosevelt state .ticket
for Illinois.

a woman 80 years old. who elves the

this morning in the apartments of Miss
Amanda Sleverkropp, a trained nurse,
at the Beryl apartments, 695 Lovejoy

fzed Dr. William M. Campbell out of
$20 and Rev. J. H. Black of 64 East

The woman, who until one week ago
had been stopping at the Imperial ho

of an estate in the east valued at $176,-
wuo ana mat she had $20,000 in the bank
at Santa Rosa, Cal., and displayed deeds
to the estate and a pass book on the
bank to prove her claims, but these
have been found to be fictitious.
Two weeks ago the woman registered
at the Imperial and last Sunday called

ill. After two days' treatment she told
the physician that she was temporarily
embarrassed, asked for $500 and dis
played the, deeds and pass book, but
the physician refused to comply with
her request, although he did give the
nurse a check for $20 for her services
and for her hotel bill. The check given
to the nurse was taken from Miss Slev

by Mrs. Wood and the money kept.

The condition of Herman P. Emery,
the Stage manager of the Pantaifes
theatre, who was shot by O. W. Pence,
who Js believed to be demented, while
near the door of the theatre Tuesday
night, is much, improved today. He is
at the St. Vincent s hospital. Although
the bullet pierced the dlaphraam an.1
the right lung and lodged near the
spine, it is said that he has a good
chance for recovery.
One incident of the shooting which
was brought out yesterday was that
after Emery had been shot by Pence
and while still helpless on the floor, ho
scrawled a short note or will on the
back Qf Ms photograph. In the will he
gave all of his property to Ms wife and
charged his stepson, Ferris, 17 years
old, to care for her. The will was writ
ton when Emery thought h was mor
tally wounded. The will follows:
"Portland, July 9. I leave all my
property to my wife, Viola A. Emery,
and charge my son Perrls to take gooj
care of his mother from my Insurance

A. W. Rice of the stage force, who
was present, witnessed the will.
The players at Pantages theatre are
very much wrought up over the affair.
Miss Carmen Ercell, one . of them,

Over a dozen letters from Pence were
received at the theatre yesterday, all
addressed to Miss Lowe. According to
later developments she was not the girl
with whom Pence was Infatuated. Miss
CarmerrErcell was the object of his ln
