WHAT FOSTER WILL DO.
Prospective Large Payments Will Wipe
Out the Surplus.
Washington, April 18. Secretary
Foster was at his desk at the treasury
department this morning, disposing of
business which had accumulated during
his absence in New York. He repeated
this morning, his opinion,, expressed
some days, ago, that tie did not think
there would be a surplus in the .treasury
next year. In view of this, he is con
sidering the advisability of not paying
the 4 per cent, bonds that mature
next September .1 There are outstanding
about $25,000,000 of 414 per cents, nearly
half of. which are held by national
banks to- secure, circulation. It is the
secretary's idea to follow , the plan
adopted by Secretary .Windom in 1881,
when the 6 and 5- per . cent, bonds
matured. These bonds were not re
deemed when they matured, but Secre
tary winaom made a contract with the
holders to pay 3 and 3 per cent, inter
est at the pleasure of the government.
becretary foster thinks that a similar
agreement with holders of the 4 per
cent., bonds can be made, and the inter
est put at 2 per. cent. . The subject -will
be considered in all its details.
A DROGGIST'M CARELESSNESS.
Ga-re m Toung Man Morphine and Caused
Seattle,. April 18 The body of Wal
lace W..Kerr,. the young man who died
yesterday from the effects of twenty
grains of morphine taken in mistake for
sulfanol, , was viewed by many today at
the morgue. . It is assured that Kerr's
death was due to the' carelessness of the
druggist,. James O. Hooper, and the
coroner s jury this atternoon tound that
Hooper was euiltv" of gross careless
ness." Robert CoCj the dead man's
roommate, insisted that he called for sul
fanol when he went-to the drugstore but
Hooper swore that he asked very plainly
for "sulphate of morphia. Ihe drug
gist, however, did not comply with the
law with regard to the sale of morphia,
for he did not label the bottle. The
prosecuting attorney mav bring criminal
action against the druggist. Kerr's re
mains are being embalmed, and Tuesday
the body will be -shipped to Massachu
setts lor interment.
AWAITING HIS DEATH.
A New York Murderer . Who. is Praying
for a Stay of Sentence.

this morning was remarkably cheerful
communicative, " and was disposed to
talk about the two murderers, Mcblvam

I haven't the slightest idea that there
will be an execution here next week,
and I have thought it would be a long
while before any execution took place ;
buone thing I want to say is that I am
all ready. . The dynamo room is fitted
up, the chair is in position, and all that
is necessary is the time. But believe
me, Terezza will get a stay just as McEl
vain did, just as all the rest have.
Nicola Terreza, the man who killed
Alexander Salvano in Brooklyn, is 1 now
counting the hours and wondering
whether his counsel .will come forward

there is not one in the big prison' who
believes the execution will take place

The Wife of Judge Bettis of Spokane
Tries to Have Him Assassinated.
Spokane Falls, April 18. The start
ling disclosure has been , made that the
wife of F. A. Bettis, a prominent citizen'

separated, and Mrs. Bettis recently be
gan divorce proceedings, but afterward
withdrew the in. a bitter ngbt has been
raging over the community property as
Bettis is a wealthy man. Not long ago
police officers learned that Mrs. Bettis
was in consultation with a suspected
crook from the east. They contrived to
secrete themselves in the presence of the
conspirators and learn their plans. The
man agreed to murder Mr. Bettis, and
was to be paid five thousand dollars ;
two hundred and fifty dollars cash
seven hundred and fifty in ten days,
and the remainder to be sent to him on
the Isthmus of Panama. The agree
ment between the parties was that the
man who was do the deed was to come
to the 'woman's home bringing the
victim's diamonds to show that the
work had been done, and the signal was
to be when he went to her house to give
three- taps at the door at. which, she
would ask, "Who's there?" He was to
answer "96." Last night was the time
appointed to commit the deed, but the
would-be assassin plaved false. He
nevertheless called- at her home and
gave the required signal, at which the
woman became so nervous she could
not light the lamp, and told him to: go
awav and see him tomorrow and he
should have the $1000. The onicers,
knowing of the plot, were on the scene,
and the man was arrested and made- a
A reporter called upon Mr. Bettis in
company with Officer Volk. "At first,"
said he, "I could not believe, what offi
cers and others told me . about the plot
of that woman against my life, but I
now have indisputable evidence to that
effect, and I am fully convinced of the
fact, but f wish .you would say that I -shall
not under any circumstances enter
a prosecution against her, for it is a mat
ter I -wish settled if possible quietly." x
Mrs. Bettis was placed under ( arrest,
and is now under guard at her home. .
It is suspected by many that Mr. Bettis
