II MOTHER'S TERRIBLE CRIME
Administers Strychnine. to Her Chil
dren and Parlafces of It Herself,
PROMPTED BY MELANOHOLY
Ter.lble SIght Presented to the Husband
and Father Vpon Ilia Return from
Spokane, June 13. A double tragedy
occurred near Spange fourteen miles
from here, yesterday. Mrs. James Klr-
kendall, the young wife of an Indus
tlrous farmer, and her four-year-old
daughter, are the, victims. The story
Is told by the deceased woman's six-
year-old son. The boy says hla mother
mixed strychnine with sugar and water
and gave it to him and his little sister
and then took some herself. It tasted
bitter and he spit It out, but his moth
er and sister swallowed it. They then
went to the woods to pick flowers.
His mother and sister soon fell down,
and were unable to rise. He, becoming
frightened, ran home, and when his
father arrived took him to the spot
where his wife and child lay dead,
There is no cause known for tbe deed,
as Klrkendall and hla wife lived happi
ly. The evidence pointed so plainly to
suicide and poisoning as the result of
temporary melancholy that no in
quests were held. ',

Carlisle Has.SoicthiDzto Say on lb
COINAGE OF RfoEBf YLARB
The Secretary Makes No Intimation
What the Policy of tlm Ailmlnltiil"ii
Is I.i;-ly To Be.
Washington, June 13. A rcpresnta
tlve of the Associated Press had
chat today with Secretary Carlisle
albout ihe pllver situation. In thof
course of the' conversation the secre
tary said that from 1792 to 1873, a peri
od of 81 years, the total amount
silver dollars coined was 8,045,838. In
1873 the coinage was stopped by an
act of congress, but resumed in 1878
under th. Blond-Alllaom act, under
which, up to. July 14, 1890, something
over twelve years, there was coined
$389,880,374 in full legal tender Bllver
money Issued by the government since
1878. Of this amount only $58,016,019
were in actual circulation on the first
day of the present month, the remain
der being held In the treasury as part
of the assets of the government, rep
resented by outstanding certificates.
Under the act of July 14, 1890, ther
has been coined $29,408,401, which
makes the total coinage of sliver dol
lars since 1878 aggregate $419,294,835, or
more than fifty times as much as dur
ing the previous eighty-one years. The
secretary haa purchased, under the act
of July 14, 1890, and now holds in the
vaults of the treasury, uncoined silver
bullion which cost the people of the
United States $114,299,920, and is worth
today at the market price of silver,
$103,411,381!, thus showing a loss of $10,
888,634. During the lost thirteen
months fifty millions' worth of silver
bullion was purchased and all exoept
$2,216,011 worth was paid for in gold,
while the bullion itself is in store in
the vaults of the treasury and can
neither bo sold ' nor used for the pay
ment of any kind of obligations. "It Is
evident," sold the secretary, "that if
this policy Is continued, and we are
compelled to issue bonds, or other
wise increase the Interest-bearing pub
lic debt, it will be done for the pur
pose of procuring gold with which to
pay for the silver bullion purchased
under the act referred to." The net
gold In the treasury has Increased from
$S9,000,000 to $91,300,000.
Visalla, June 13. Chris Evans, the
noted outlaw, v.t.i capture J lust night
at the house of widow Perkins, -where
ha had gone after the battle with Ih
officers. He was wounded and mad
no resistance. He was shot In the
right eyebrow, closing tho eyo.Another
bullet plowed across the small of his
back, making a wound nine Inches
long. lie1 was also shot In th left wrist,
the ball passing upwards through the
forearm. He was not as seriously
hurt as Sontag, and will have a speedy
recovery. Sontag rallied a little this
morning, feeling much better. Both
bandits are In Jail.
This afternoon Evans and Sontag
held a levee, and fifty or more persons
marched upstairs In the Jail and took
a look at them. Then the doors were
closed to all comers. Mrs. Evans and
daughter were at the Jail this after
noon. Mrs. Evans was in the room
with her husband, and Eva In the
adjoining room with Sontag. Sheriff
Scott of Fresno county has served Jury
warrants on both men for train rob
bery and killing McGinn! and Wilson.
They will be taken to Fresno as soon
as they are able to travel, Marshal
Card having consented to lay his gov-
ernhent warrant aside for the time
being. Frank Byrd, a brother-in-law
of Evans, says Chris sent Perking to
town with the understanding that Mrs,
Evans should have the reward if he
surrendered. The reward In question
Is likely to be productive of numerous
lawsuits, Judged from the present mut
terlngs. PRESIDENTIAL APPOINTMENTS.

ment: Holmes ( -''. of Virginia,

WANT THE RATE WITHDRAWN
Chicago, June 13. Western roads are
making desperate efforts to have the
Great Northern withdraw its $25 rate
between Seattle and St. Paul, but that
company refused, linhfrs the other
roada withdraw their touriHta' sen-Ice
by Juno 18th, a demand which It is
pr.-u-tloally Impossible to trrant, and no
the situation looks siimlly. The re
vised agreement of tho Western iwis
senger association' was adopted today,
and efforts are being made to get the
Northern Pacific in, which will prob
ably succeed in a boycott In August
against the Great Northern.
A RAP AT THE TRUSTS.
Chicago, June 13. Judge MeConnell
this afternooni hit the trusts a hard
rap, particularly the preservers' trust.
It was In a suit against It by a recalci
trant member, Andrew D. Bishop. In
overrulllng the demurrer by the asso
ciation Judge McConnell said In part:
"No court of record should lend its
legal operations to further tho inter
ests and carry out the purposes of the
trust. To my mind the corporation
known as the American Fruit Pre
serves' Association Is but an agent of
the trust, and as such the same Ille
gally attaches to Is as to tho principal.
The association now has three days in
which to reply to Bishop.
13 LIZZIE BORDEN GUILTY?
Newark, N. J., June 13. Another Bor
den theory was evolved today when ft
barber told a story to the effect that
last fall a man with a heavy black
beard came Into his shop, got a clean
shave and a close hair-cut, borrowed
some writing paper and wrote three or
four letters, two of which he threw on
the floor as unsatisfactory. One of
these the barber picked up after the
man had gone, and found it was ad
dressed to Mayor Coughlln, of Fall
River, and stated that the writer had
murdered Mid. Borden out of revenge.
The barber did not explain why ho
kept this quiet so long. The police
think the mysterious man was a crank.
THE FLYER TO BE CONTINUED.
Chicago, June 13. The officials of the
Lake Shore and Michigan Southern
railway, who are responsible for the
Inauguration of the twenty-hour ser
vice between New York and Chicago
via their line and the New York Cen
tral, and had been running what Is
known as the Exposition Flyer, repu
diate the statement that the train will
be discontinued. On the contrary, they
claim It Is gaining In popularity and
running In either direction to its fullest
TO AVERT FURTHER DANGER.
Washington, June 13. Supervising
Architect O'Rourke today made a pre
llmlnary examination of the Winder
building, occupied as the Hecond audi
tor's office, the building being very
old. O'Rourk said he found it safe,
but unfit for the purpose for which
It was used. He will examine the
other tneafiury buildings within the
next few days and then take up the
buildings occupied by other executive
CiOOI TEMPLARS' CONVENTION.
Dcs Moines, June 13. The thirty-
sixth unnuai meeting of the World's
lodge of Qood Templars convened
here this morning with delegates from
every quarter of the globe.
The committee of arrangements for
the Pioneer and Historical Society bas.
ket picnic met yesterday and decided
to again postpone the picnic until next
Wednesday. The affair now promises
to be a much greater success than was
at first anticipated, provided a fortu
nate selection Is made asr to the day
for holding it. It was thought that
Friday would have been an excellent
day, but the school exercises at Upixr
town would have prevented many from
attending, and In consequence a ma
jority of the committee favored the
postponement until next Wednesday.
O. P. Henry, the inventor of
the' new marine marvel at present
under construction bock of the O'Brien
building, has something entirely new
in tho way of a net. It is composed of
three distinct kinds of web, one por
tlon being trap web, another herring
seine we-b, and a third having been
taken from a gill-net. The device
is intended for the the general fishing
business, and ia calculated to catch
anything from a sardine to an eighty-
pound salmon. Mr. Henry says he will
give it a trial today.
Frank Patton and H. C. Thompson
yesterday conveyed to . the Seashore
Road Company the Astoria and South .
Coast Railroad, together with all the
rights of way, rolling stock, equip
ments, franchises, tenements, heredita
ments and appurtenances thereto be
longing. The office of the new com
pany is in Astoria, and 1U buHlness is
to lease, buy construct, maintain, and
perate a standard gauge railway be
tween Astoria and Seaside." The cap
ital stock Is $175,000, divided into 1,759
ehnres of the value of $100 each.
The will of the late Mrs. Dillon was
led In the office of the county clerk
esterday. Dr. Walker is named us
xecutor, with power to sell and d!s-
poHe of the property at such time or
lace as shall seem proper to him. A
contest, has also been filed by Martin
Dillon, the husband, which will be
card on July 5th. A determined ef-
rt will be made to break thn will.
