Guthrie, Okla., Nov. 30. An a re
tult of a 48-hour downpour In the val

tributaries, the Cottonwood overflowed
hero yesterday afternoon. Several
hundred homea are partially under

Thu river at 0 o'clock last night was
one foot higher than ever before In its
history and rising 12 inches an hour,
Hundreds of people who refused to
get out ol the flood district, believing
that the river would not rise as rapidly
as it did, fired shots of distress during
thu night, and hundreds of boats with
rescuers brought the tardy ones to
places of safety.
It is believed that a few persons are
still In their homes.
I So rapid was the rise in the Cotton
wood that 20 head of cattle In the
iffected district were drowned before
they could be got out of the waters.

FINCH KILLS FISHER.
Oregon Oar Proteculor Shot by De
Portland, Nov. 30. Attorney Ralph
II. Fisher, prosecutor for the grievance
committee of the Oregon State Bar
as ociation, was shot and killed almost
instantly at 1:30 o'clock Saturday
afternoon by Attorney J. A. Finch,
who had been recently disbarred as the
re-ult of charges of drunkenness that
were prosecuted by Mr. Fi her.
The tragedy occurred In Mr. Flshcr'a
private ofli:e. 322 Mohawk building,
Third and Morrison streets. MUs
Verna Burkhart, Mr. Fisher's steno
grapher, was the only witness and she
lied screaming from tho room. The
aisassin emerged deliberately from the
room where lay hi victim, walked
down the corridor and was about to
take the elevator when cized by Dr.
II. F. Leonard, who detained him.
Finch wna at once taken into the
office from which sulphurous smoke waa
still pouring, and looked down upon the
prostrate form that he had tlain. He
gazed coolly and apparently unmoved
upon the bleeding figure, uttered not a
word, turned and walked out in the
cu tody of the officers.
"I wouldn't speak to him, and I'll
get the rest of the bunch," Finch said
to one of the officers who rode in the
patrol wagon with him to the station.
At the city jail Finch positively de
nied tho murder to Di trict Attorney
Cameron. He had been in his own
office nearly all day, he said, and had
not been near Mr. t isher a office. He
talked confusedly and at times unintel
ligibly, apparently under the influence
of either drugs or liquors, or prcmedi-
tatfngly preparing grounds for the de
feme of insanity.

B1GGY IS DROWNED
San Francisco Officer Disappears
From Patrol Launch.
PROMINENT IN GRAFT TRIALS
After Having Served At Ruef'a Jailer
and Polica Chief. Quarreled
San Francisco, Dec 1. William J.
B'Kgy. chief of police of this city, was
drowned late last night while return
ing across the bay in thd police patrol
launch Patrol. Mr. Blggy had been at
Belvedere, a suburb, to call on I'olico
Commissioner Kcil, who resides there.
He boarded the launch to return to tho
city about 10 o'clock, and when tho
boat waa out on the bay complained of
feeling cold to Engineer Murphy, tho
only other occupant of U.e launch. Mr.
Murphy advised him to go to the cabin
at the stern of the boat.
Mr. Murphy then went below to at
tend his engine and did not sea tho
chief again. He came on deck as tho
boat neared the city and noticed that
the chief hod disappeared. A search
of the boat failing to locate him, Mr.
Murphy made all speed to the dock,
where he reported the accident and
went out into the bay again to search
for the missing officer. Numerous
boats were hurried to the scene and n
careful search of the bay waa begun.
William J. Biggy was appointed
chief of police by Mayor Taylor after
the latter hod been placed in offico
upon the removal of Mayor E. E.
Schmitz. Biggy succeeded Jeremiah
F. Dinan, against whom the grand Jury
returned an indictment in connection
with the bribery cases. When Abra
ham Ruef was arrested, the prosecu
tion asked that Biggy be appointed
elisor and be given the custody o. the
prisoner. For eight months he held
this position and at the expiration of
that time was appointed chief of po
lice in September, 1907, through the
influence of the graft prosecution.
Ever since the suicide of Morris
Haas, the man who attempted to kill
Assistant District Attorney Hcney and
who later took his own life at the coun
ty Jail, the relations between the chief
and the graft prosecution have been
strained to the breaking point.
