MtritDKK AND SUICIDE. .
A Spokane Sport does Gunning; for
Spokane Falls, Wash., March 27. A
double murder and suicide occurred at
the Casino theatre at half past two this
morning. Charles Elliott a faro dealer,
had been occnp)-ing the box nearest the
stage orx the right side for about an hur
when he was seen to lean forward frxpi
the box and fire three shots at the per
formers on the stage. He then placed
the muzzle of his revolver in his mouth,
fired again, the bullet going through the
top of his head. Three of the shots fired
at the stage entered the left breast of
Mable DeBabian. a variety actress, ' an
other bullet entered the back of Carrie
Smith just above the left hip, inflicting
a dangerous wound, which may prove
fatal. Before the doctor arrived Mabel
DeBabian had died.
Mabel DeBabian was about twenty-
three or twenty-four years of age and
quite pretty. She was a general favorite
with her associates. .
In the pockets of the dead man was
found a number of cartridges and the
following note : -
"Lulu Dur'and : I have wanted to
carry out my purposes but haven't had
a favorable chance yet. It was an old
score but I had to "fool with you. I
trust to luck and a good shot to accom
plish my purpose.
(Signed) Chab. Elliott."
The fact that Lulu Durand was on'the
stage at the time of the shooting makes
clear the fact that she was one whom the
shooting was at.
Carrie Smith, who was shot in the
back, was taken to the Sacred Heart
hospital. At last accounts she was
Lulu Durand stated that she believed
that Elliott intended to shoot at her but

An Agent of the Baldwin Locomotive
Works Meets With a Sad Accident.
New York, March 27. A corres
pondent at Rio Janeiro sends an ac
count of a fatal accident on the railway
running from San Francisco south.: An
agent for the Baldwin Locomotive works
of Philadelphia was showing the officials
of the road a new engine. For the pur
pose of making a practical test, the
agent witn the manager of the road,
master mechanic, chief clerk, engineer
and two firemen, boarded the locomo
tive and tender. After proceeding a
short distance the locomotive left the
track and rolled down the bank seventy
five feet high, badly injuring the agent
and killing the others.
The agent was arrested and thrown in
to a vile dungeon, outside of which a
frantic mob howled for his life. After
enduring much torture, diplomatic cor
respondence finally brought about his
release with half-hearted apologies.
. Receiver's Report.
Chicago, March 27. A special from
Sioux City, Iowa, says: "Receivers of
the Wyoming Pacific Improvement Co.,
and the Nebraska and Western railroad
have issued their first official statement
of the affairs of the Pacific line of rail
way. It shows that the property is still
owned by the Manhattan Trust Co., of
New York, and that holders of unse
cured claims, of which about $250,000
is outstanding, will probably lose them.
The Sioux City people who have sub
scribed about $300,000 will have to buy
the Manhattan" company out or lose
their money. "

Cold-Bloorty Murder of a Negro by a
Southern Planter.- I
Little Rock. March 25. Yester
day morning a planter, claiming to be
long to one ot tne tirst lam i lies oi Louis
iana, boarded a train on the Vallev rail
way at Pulaski, near the Rtate line. He
said that he was looking for a family of
negroes who bad left his plantation for
uiuanoma, ana tnat ne intended to bring
"the d d black rascals back or kill
them in trying to do so. When the train
reached Parkdale, a well-dressed negro
man, accompanied by his wife and three
children, boarded the train. The planter
told the negro that he was under con
tract to work for him during the year,
and that unless he returned at once to
the plantation he would kill him. The
negro replied that this was a free coun
try, and that he was going to Oklahoma.
With an oath the planter drew his re
volver and shot the negro through the
head, killing him instantly. The planter
then walked out of the train, and after
assuring the many spectators present on
the platform that that was the only way
to break up "the d d negro stampede
to Oklahoma." returned to his home in
Louisiana. The name of the planter is
And Will Visit the Coast if Public Busi
ness Will Permit Him Doing So.
San Francisco, March 25. Congress
man Morrow, who has just returned
from Washington, was asked today if he
thought President Harrison would visit
Well, I had a talk with President Har
rison about visiting this coast, and he
stated that he was very anxious to make
the trip. He will, "if possible, come
here some time in the spring, that is, if
his public offices will permit him to
leave Washington. There are a great
many questions requiring the presence
of the president and the members of the
cabinet in Washington, and if it should
appear that matters cannot be post
poned the president will be compelled
to remain in Washington. If he comes
out here. he will start between April 5th
and 15th and will travel on the southern
route and on the way will stop at San
Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and
other points of interest. He will also
visit tne Yosemite valley on his way to
this city. He will remain here a" few
days arid will leave by the Northern
route, and will probably visit the states
of Oregon and Washington.
WHAT HAY8 .TIM HALLt
FitsHimmons Is Beady to Fight for
Astoria, March 25. There is con
siderable excitement among the local
sports today over the prospects of Hall
and Fitzsimmons fighting here. The
matter was brought up as a jest, but has
developed into a serious proposition,
which may result in something definite.
John Grant, president of the local club,
today received the following reply to his
telegram to Chicago, offering a pnrse of
$17,1100 for tne fight :
"Handed telegram to Fitzsimmons'
backer. He accepts.- Does Hall? . I
hold $2500 forfeit for Fitzsimmons.
What will you do?"
A number of prominent members of
the club began an active canvass of the
city today and in a very short time suc
ceeded in raising a trine over $10,000.
They are in a fair way to raise the bal
ance of the sum. Grant will go to Port
land iriday to see Hall, who will, be in
that city that day.
THE CHURCH IN POLITICS.
The Spirit of the Bennett Law Agita
tion in Wisconsin Will Not Down.
St. Paul, Minn., March 25. The
religious feeling in politics has not died
out yet in Wisconsin. The spirit of the
Bennett law agitation will not down.
In the senate at Madison today a bill
came up for consideration, which pro
vides that all officers authorized to com
mit dependent children to industrial
school, asylums or other institutions for
care of detendent children, shall before
commitment inquire into the religious
belief of such children, and take such
belief into consideration in selecting the
institution to which the child is sent.
The bill was introduced at the instiga
tion of the Roman Catholics of Milwau
kee, and the measure met with consid
erable opposition. A long debate was
precipitated, in which Senator Joiner led
the opposition in a two hours' speech.
He endeavored to show the relation be
tween church and state. The speech
created great excitement, and the bill
was laid over.
Hardships of the Crew
of the Bark
London, March 25. The steamer Don
has landed at Plymouth the crew of the
German bark Humboldt, who, when
rescued, had suffered terrible hardships
and were in a dying condition. The
Humboldt sailed from Altata, Mexico,
on the Gulf of California, in September
last, bound for Falmouth. On the voy
age the crew were stricken with scurvy,
and became so weak they were almost
insensible. Their teeth were loosened
and their skins became swollen and
and livid. "When spoken by the Don,
the Humboldt was in disabled condition
and sinking. All her boats had been
smashed. Two of the crew were already
dead. The survivors were so exhausted
they had to be hoisted aboard the Don.
They had been ill for three months.
Famell'a Audiences Small. .
London, March .- 25. Mr. Parnell's
audiences today were small and not at
all enthusiastic. It is evident that the
church is gaining ground in its campaign
against him. The withdrawal of the
curates from active work in his behalf
haa greatly weakened his 'cause.
THE SUGAR TKirST.
An Attempt to Cheat the Government
Out of 2 1-9 Cents a Pound.
New York, March 24. The sugar
trust, in anticipation of a heavy loss on
a large amount of sugar held by the con
cern April 1, is getting in some fine
work to protect themselves, as outlined
by a well-informed sugar man. The
move seems to be nothing short of a plan
to make the government pay over to the
trust more than enough to cover the loss
in selling these goods at the April de
cline. The law provides for a drawback -of
23 cents per pound on export sugars,
and the same drawback is precisely what
they are believed to be after. The
popular opinion is that the sugar will be
sent abroad in order to secure the dajw
back and then be brought back and sold
at April prices.
It Has Caused a Sensation.
New- York, March 25. The divorce

vorce on the ground of non-support.

The Sil-er Purchases.
Washington, March 27. One hun
dred and fifteen thousand ounces of sil
ver were purchased yesterday at prices
ranging from 998.10 to 998.26.
My advice to workingmen is this : If
you want power in this country; if you
want to make yourself felt ; if you do
not want your children to wait long
years before they have the bread on the
table they ought to have ; the leisure in
their lives they ought to have ; the op
portunities in life they ought to have; if -you
don't want to wait yourselves, write
on your banner so that every political
trimmer can read it, so that every poli
tician no matter how short sighted he
may be, can read it : "We never forget."
If you launch the arrow of sarcasm at ,
labor,, we never forget ! If there is a
division in congress and yon throw your
vote in the wrong scale we never forget !
You may go down on your knees and
say: "I am sorry I did the act!" And
we will say : "It will avail you in heaven
but this side of the grave never I" So
that a man in taking up the labor ques
tion will know he is dealing with a hair
trigger pistol and will say : "I am to be
true to justice and to man, otherwise I
am a dead duck." Wendell Phillips.
