THE CRIME OF A JEALOUS LOVER
A New York Woman's Desperate Strug
gle for Life Turned The Pis
tol on Himself.
San Bernardino, Cal., April 6. A
horrible butchery took place today at 12
o'clock on Fourth street, near the depot,
in which an old man named Goldcoffer,
and a woman named Francisca Flores,
were killed by a Spaniard named Jesus
Fuen. Fuen and Francisca Flores were
living together as man and wife, but
Fuen had become jealous of her for
some reason and threatened to kill any
one found in the house. The neighbor
hood was aroused at noon today by the
screams of a woman, and Fuen chased
Francisca with a butcher knife into the
house of a neighbor. Old man Gold
coffer, who is about 75 years of age and
a paralytic, opened the door and let in
Francisca, and then attempted to bar
the door against Fuen, who battered it
down. Goldcoffer then tried to shoot
Fuen with a shotgun which failed to dis
charge. Fuen rushed in and stabbed
the old man in the neck, cutting his
head half off. Fuen then gave chase to
Francisca, running through the fields
about 100 yards before overtaking her,
when he stabbed her downward, just
above the collarbone, killing her in
stantly. A house dog that had followed
them began licking the body of the dead
woman. Fuen kicked him away, and
laid down on Francesca's arm. Isem
Mendibles, a Spaniard, cutting wood
near by, came running to the assist
ance of the screaming woman, when
Fuen ran at him with a knife, but Men
dibles hit Fuen on the head with a big
rock, stunning him until the officers ar
rived, ten minutes later.
Shot and Killed Himself.
New Yokk, April 0. Charles Harold,
a widower, 71 -ears old, ran amuck in a
tenament at 12 Stanton street, with two
big revolvers, at 6:30 o'clock this morn
ing. He tried to shoot tne Housekeeper,
Mrs. Louisa Roth, but the pistols Would
not go off, and then the old man went to
his own room in the same house and
shot himself dead. He used both re
volvers, one bullet entering the temple,
the other his chest. Harold was a
manufacturer of brushes, and the little
room was also his factor'. Some neigh
bors say the man was worth $35,000.
He has a son and daughter living in the
West who are said to be wealthy.
Harold was unclean in his habits, and
lately had become so disgusting that the
landlord secured a dispossess warrant,
and Harold .was to leave the house today.
He blamed Mrs. Roth for this and de
clared he would get even with her. He
entered her apartments this morning
while she was in bed. He approached
her with both revolvers pointed at her
head. Mrs. Roth sprang from her bed,
grasped him, and a desperate struggle
ensued. Harold snapped the revolvers,
but they would not explode. The old
man then beat Mrs. Roth on the head
with the revolvers, inflicting severe cuts,
and beat her all over the body until she
was covered with wounds and bruises.
Her nightdress, her single covering, was
torn from her body In the struggle. The
screams of the woman brought a tenant
named Hayes to her assistance. The
old man tried to shoot Hayes, but a kick
in the stomach took much of the fight
out of Harold. Harold ran to his room
and ended his existence before the police
could be summoned. In his room was
a noose hanging from the door, with
which he evidently intended to hang
himself. He left a note addressed to
the landlord saying that he had lain
wait for him yesterday to kill him.
Weary of Living:.
New Yobk, April 6. At 10 :30 o'clock
this morning Mrs. Frances Eddy, 30
years ot age, committed suicide in a
vacant lot at One Hundred and Thirty
ninth street and St. Nicholas avenue,
by taking a dose of carbolic acid. Her
7-year-old daughter Gladys was with
her at the time, and the mother forced
the child to take some of the dose also.
Mother and daughter were taken to
Harlem hospital, where the mother died.
The child is in a precarious condition.
Dispatches From Hawaii.
Washington, April 6. The depart
ment of state was informed that the
Australia brought to San Francisco yes
terday from Honolulu a number of dis
patches from Minister Stevens, which
are now on their way to Washington by
mail. Dr. Mott, the Hawaiian minister
to the United States called at the state
department today and had an interview
with Secretary Gresham. He informed
the secretary that he had received no
intimation that he would ha recalled bv
the provisional government, as stated m
trie ban b rancisco dispatch this morning.
Neither Thurston nor Carter, of the
Hawaiian annexation commission, is in
the city at present. Carter is in Boston,
but is expected to return tomorrow or
Saturday. The date of Thurston's re
turn is uncertain. He left for Chicago
two weeks ago, announcing he would be
absent a tew days only on world's fair
business, but yesterday bis baggage was
forwarded to him on telegraph orders.
Cholera In Kussia.
Petersburg, April 7. There is
now scarcely a doubt entertained by
those aware of the real situation that
Russia is to again suffer from the rava
ges of cholera. Official returns have
been made public showiug that from
March 19th to March 26th there were
65 cases of cholera and 19 deaths from
the disease in the town of Orel. The
official figures place the number of cases
of the disease reported from March 12th
to March 27th in the government of Oofa
at 84 and the deaths at 29. In addition
to the bad showing of the above official
figures, it is a matter of common knowl
edge that the number of cholera cases
and deaths from the scourge are far
more numerous in the governments
that are not included in the returns.
This is especially the case in Podolia and
Saratooff, which were ravaged by
cholera last vear.
A Bank Kouber Captured.
Denver, Colo., April 6. The report
that the man who robbed David H.
MotTatt of $21,000, in the First National
bank here a few years ago, had been
captured at Baker City, Or., has created
great interest here. Moffatt admits
that the clue is direct from the woman
mentioned. He says that he will pay
well for the thief's capture, whether he
gets any money back or not. The rob
bery was one of the most daring on
record. Moffatt was relieved of $21,000
in cash, at the hour of noon, when the
bank was crowded and the streets were
thronged, and that, too, at the point of a
revolver in the hands of a desperate
man who escaped and was lost in the
crowd before walking 150 feet.
Drowned in the L'mpqaa River.
Can yon viLiiE, Or., April G A young
man by the name of Munroe wa9
drowned Sundav evening' in the South
Umpqua river, 30 miles east of Canyon-
ville, at the mouth of Elk creek. While
trying to ford the river, it seems his
horse became fractious while in the
stream. In rearing up, the horse's head
struck Munroe's head violently, knock
ing him into the river, and before he
regained consciousness he was drowned.
The body has not yet been recovered.
Bishop Kip of San Francisco is dead.
Capitalists don't want anything to do

don't hanker to be a state.
George E. Richardson has appeared in
Justice Hamlin's court on a warrant
charging him with an attempt to wreck
a train. His examination was postponed
until next Tuesday, as the. prosecution
had no witnesses present.
Burglars blew up the safe in the

McLeod of the Philadelphia and Read
ing road, was compelled to resign. Evi
dences of corruption are being brought
to the surface. Rice, who was appointed
by the Pennsylvania Trust Co. to look
into the matter, said that his examina
tion had shown unheard-of thimble
rigging at every step, but he would con
sider it a breach of confidence to dis
close results before he had made a re
port to the Trust company, which be
represented in the capacity of expert.

Arbitration Sir John Thompson
Bombay, April 6. Further informa
tion in regard to the atrocities commit
ted by the Khan of Khelat are to the
effect that, suspecting five of his wives
of infidelity, he caused them to be
cruelly put to death. The khan has
agreed to deliver to tho British Indian
government the surviving prisoners
whom he was reported as torturing. As
a punishment for his conduct the Brit
ish agent will withhold 40,000 of the
100,000 rupees allowed him as a subsidy,
and will devote it to the benefit of the
families of those unjustly executed.
The khan has been on the throne since
1857, and has been generally well con
The Behring Sea Arbitration.
Paris, April 6. The morning session
of the Behring sea court of arbitration
today was dull, and even the eloquence
of such leaders as Attorney-General
Russell and J. C.Carter failed to awaken
interest. Even the members of the
court seemed bored, and it was noticed
that the august head of Sir John Thomp
son, one of the British arbitrators, fre
quently nodded and suggested the aw
ful suspicion that he was tempted to
slumber. Sir Charles Russell concluded
his argument in reply to the objections
of Hon. E. J. Phelps, counsel for the
United States, to the legal character of
certain evidence offered by Great
Britain. E. J. Carter then proceeded to
reply to Sir Charles Russell's arguments.
Carter was still arguing on behalf of
the American case when the court ad
Sacked By a Mob.
Washington, April 6. It was Chili
during the last administration, and it
may bo its neighbor, Peru, during this.
It appears the United States consulate
at one of the Peruvian ports has been
sacked by a mob, .with apparent police
sanction. The officer acting as consular
agent for the United States was fired
upon and wounded in the foot. The
news came in a brief telegram through
the United States minister to Peru.
He omitted such essential details as the
name of place or wounded officer, or
they were dropped from his dispatch in
its telegraphic transmission. The tele
gram was dated Lima, April 5th, and
was addressed to Secretary Gresham.
It was signed by Minister Hicks, and
"At place omitted a mob attacked
the Masonic lodge, soaked the building
and burned the fixtures in the street.
Incidentally the United States consulate
was invaded, its furnishings destroyed
and the acting consular agent, shot ill
the foot. The archives were saved in
tact. A squad of Peruvian police looked
on while the mob performed .its work
without interference. The mail bringa
Theparticulars in question, which are .
left to be supplied by mail, apparently
include the information as to where the
outrage occurred. There is but one
consulate in Peru, that at Callao. In
this position Mr. Aquila Dougherty, of
Illinois, appointed during Mr. Harrison's
administration, June 2, 1890, stands on
the record as consul. There are under
him six consular agencies, the occupants
of which positions are doubtless mer
chants of the country, who are paid by
fees. Sam Hop & Co. have purchased the
