CRAZY PORTLAND .IAN K. W. Stafford Kills Wife and Child With Hatchet, Commits Suicide and Sets House A lire Portland. Ore., July 2. Mrs. Caroline Stafford, wounded late yes terday when her husband, R. W. Stafford, ran amuck at borne with a hatchet, died today. A son, Wirt, aged five years, wounded by his tathesv is still fa f; precarious con dition. An Inquest has been ordered on the body of Stafford, who killed him self after attacking the family and setting fire to the home. Stafford also killed a year old baby. " Three children, besides the one left wounded, are orphans. The family came to Portland from Ma Iowa, Minn., three months ago, at the request of Ralph Hahn, vice president and general manager of the Sterling Food Products com pany, who bad hired Mr. Stafford as superintendent of the company's plant ini South Portland. The authorities say temporary in sanity is the only explanation or the tragedy. Inasmuch as all persons in terviewed by police say Mr. Stafford had not quarreled with his family. He suddenly left his work shortly before 2 o'clock, walked to his borne which was close by, and apparently attempted to murder his whole fam ily. Three children escaped. E A murder sensation may follow the finding ot the stolen plunder ob tained by burglars, who recently robbed the Bowers combination drug and Jewelry store at Gold iliH, cach ed tn Josephine county near the Jackson county line not far from the 'Rogue river, says the Med ford Tribune. s This stolen booty, amounting to several hundred dollars worth ot property, mostly jewelry, was dis covered this week and the fact that some bloody nCgs were found nearby Indicating chat a body had been dragged from there to the river leads the Josephine county officials to think that a murder might have been committed. To make sure they have sent for grappUng hooks and will drag the river bottom in that vicinity next Friday and Saturday. They go on the theory that the burglars might have quarreled over the booty dur ing which one of them was' killed and his body was dragged to the river, weighted, and thrown in.
