Bard Fate of Lt Hang; Chang;' Assailant,
Washington, April 1. It is said at
the Japanese legation that the young
Japanese who shot Li Hung Chang will
probably be sent to the mines of North
ern Japan to serve his life sentence,
The locality is much like Siberia. Un
official reports of the sentence make no
reference to his trial or conviction. It
is understood there had been a civil 'trial,
as a military trial would have resulted
Dr. Scriba's report on Li Hung Chang's
wound is regarded by the Japanese le
gation as assuring recovery. Scriba is
one of Germany's moat noted eargeona
who has entered into service in Japan
Dr. PlouflT Aasatlant Bays He Acted In
San Francisco, April 1.--J. D. Mo
Gaughey, who shot Dr. J. E. Plouff on
Saturday last, expressed himself as satis,
fied that he will never be convicted, as
he acted in self-defense. "I did not
know Dr. Plouff personally in Seattle,"
said he, "but from my position as deputy
county clerk. I know considerable of
him. He was arrested for malpractice,
and as clerk of the court I had the filing
of the papers in the suit. Plouff assault
ed the wife of Thomas Dempsey, editor
of the Evening Times, and Dempsey and
Thomas Kehongh, his brother-in-law,
gave him a terrible beating and two
ladies horsewhipped him. That led to a
libel suit by the doctor against Dempsey.
I also filed papers in that suit. Demp
sey charged the doctor with enticing
young girls into his private office.
Plouff, I suppose, knew that I was the
clerk of the court, and that I was conse
quently possessed of these facts. I left
Seattle before Plouff and came here, but
shortly afterward I went up north to ad
minister an estate, and then returned to
Seattle. By that time Plouff had gone
to San Francisco."
