MRS. DIULh CHAPMAN
Mourned Over the Death of a Son
and Sickness and Troubles In the
Family Drove Her to the Act
Mrs. Dilila Chapman, wife of Ste
phen Chapman, is lying dead at tholr
homo at 708 Ann street, from the
effects of swallowing a dose of
strychnine with suicidal Intent.
Mrs, Chapman was 42 years of ago
and has been morose for several
weeks which Is supposed to have
been caused from the death of a son
about six weeks ago. Since his
death she has been gradually losing
her strength, and her grief, at time,
was very marked, but at other times
she seemed all right and would chat
In the best of spirits. She would sit
down and cry and take on about her
dead boy for hours at a time. Last
Saturday she got some cabinet pho
tos that had been" taken of the boy
after he died, and since that sho
has kept one of them In her hands
and wept almost continuously. She
did not make any threats, however,
until a few minutes before taking the
poison, when she was in the room
with her son Allen Chapman, who
has pneumonia. The other children
were out of the house, and sho told
this boy, who was In bed, that she
had something down stairs that she
was going to take that would lay her
out. She left the room.Tmt the youth
did not think that his mother meant
any harm to herself, so did not raise
an alarm. This was about 4 o'clock,
and a few minutes later a daughter
found her mother lying on the bed
ill. She did not know what was the
matter and a physician was not call
ed for some time after.
When Mrs. Chapman did not revive
the children became alarmed and
summoned Dr. Henderson, but she
was dead when he arrived.
Mr. and Mrs. Chapman came to
Pendleton from Douglas county last
July, and have remained In town
since. They have nine living child
ren, six boys and three girls, ranging
in age from 4 to 25 years. They arc
all here except one daughter, who
lives in Spokane. The family Is In
The funeral will be conducted at
the. home tomorrow afternoon.

Lost His Money.
L. L. Simpson, of Athena, was
robbed of $105 while on the train be
tween Athena and Colfax or after he
reached this place, says the Colfax
correspondent of the Spokesman-Review.
Simpson had been married at
Athena and took the train for Col
fax to spend the honeymoon. He
purchased tickets for himself and
bride to Colfax and says he put his
purse containing $105, in his pocket.
After reaching Colfax, Mr. Simpson
and bride stopped at the Hotel Col
fax, and after securing a room he
went to the barber shop to get shaved
When he left the chair and reached
for his purse it was gone. Mr. Simp
son thinks he must have been robbed
while on the train, or possibly the
purse fell out of his pocket in the
car. He telegraphed for money and
pawned his overcoat at the hotel to
secure payment of his bill.

SCOURING AND WOOLEN.
MILLS HOLD MEETING.
E. Y. Judd, President of the Two In.
tltutions, Talk Concerning the
Wool Market and the Outlook for
At a meeting of tho officers and
directors of the Pendleton Wool
Scouring and Packing Company, nnd
the Pendleton Woolen Mills, at tho
mills ofllco Tuesday afternoon, the
following officers were elected for
tho ensuing term:
Scouring mill E. Y. Judd, presi
dent; C. S. Jackson, vice-president ;
F. E. Judd, treasurer; Frank B. Clop
ton, secretary; B. Y. Judd, C. S.
Jackson, F. E. Judd, ,1L Aloxnndor
and Frank B. Clopton. directors.

E. Judd, treasurer; Frank B. Clop
ton, secretary; E. Y. Judd, E. D.
Boyd, F. B. Judd, C. S. Jackson and
Frank B. Clopton, directors..
Geo. D. Fell was elected superin
tendent or Manufacturing nnd Chas.
J. Ferguson was elected genernl
manager of the woolen mills.
Tho scouring mill had one of tho
most successful years and did more
business during 1901 than ever bo-
fore In Its history, nnd tho prospects
are very bright for another good
year. There Is now wool enough In
the mill warehouses to keep tho
scouring department going for two
months and there is plenty more In
sight. It Is now running a day and
a quarter each 24 hours.
The woolen mill ran continuously
last year which was a record novor
before made, slnco It was established
In 189G. After paying the heavy ex-
pense Incurred In advertising and
placing the goods properly beforo
he trade, the management were
able to charge off all bad debts and
allow for all depreciation of machin
ery and then show fair profit for
the stockholders for the year. In
fact the result from the business tho
P?.st year was more thnn satisfac
tory for those Interested, and they
are also pleased with the outlook for
the present year. They are satisfied
from past developments that tho
woolen mill will prove a paying In
vestment to the stockholders and a
credit not ot 'y to Pendleton, but to
the state of Oregon. Tho first few
years after this Institution was es
tablished it did not run continuously,
but every year has added to Its bust
ness and Its trade has extended un
til the pla'it lad to 0? greatly en
larged, and now it Is one of tho best
equipped manufacturing establish
ments In the northwest.
In speaking of the wool market to
an East Oregonlan reporter this
morning, E. Y. Judd, president of
the Pendleton Wool Scouring and
Packing Co., said:
"On acount of the strike among
the operators of the American Wool
en Co., considerable depression has
been caused in tho wool markets of
the east and prices remain compari
tively weak, but the London auction
sales, which opened last week, show
continued Btrength and we believe
that as soon as tho strike Is settled
the markets will get better, and
there will continue to bo a denfandfor
Oregon wool and a gradual Improve
ment In prices. The price now Is
slightly higher than the opening quo
tations of last year, and are about
equal to the prices at tho close of
the season. Good attractive wools
range from 8 to 10 cents per pound
and some very light, which was
shorn early. Is quoted at cent
more. Heavy sandy wools from the
lower lands. Is quoted somewhat
