to reclaim what is known as the
Ilenham Falls segregation. The
protest is on the crouud that such
storage would interfere with the
use of the river for power, log-drlv
lug, etc., during a large part 01 tlie
year, and would flood adjacent
mrflilntv nnrf fartntni? lands durini!
the growing and harvesting season,
and that such use 01 the water
would further damage adjacent
lands by depositing silt upon them
and would materially effect' the
purity of the water and conse

SHOT THROUGH HEAD
Suicide of John V. Harper while
John V. Harper, 33 years old,
son-in-law of Mrs. Christine Welder,
committed suicide yesterday morn
ing by shooting through the head.
Doth Mrs. Wcidcr and Mrs
Harper had risen and were out of
the bouse. Nick Welder, who had
slept later than usual, was getting
up. He heard the pistol report in
the adjoining room, but the bullet,
after going through Harper's head
from chin to crown, went through
a feather pillow, both sides of
Nick's room, through a Hour bin
and lodged in a cupboard, where it
rattled some cuttlery. So he did
not at first recognize It as a gun
shot. Then hearing a peculiar
noise In the adjoining room he
went in and found Harper bloody
and senseless. Dr. Coe was hastily
summoned but nothing could be
done for the injured man, who died
in a lew minutes.
Several years ago Harper was
injured in a Montana railway ac
cident and since then had been
erratic at times. For several days
he had been unbalanced and there
is no doubt that he was not rational
when he shot himself. This was
the conclusion reached by the jury
at the inquest conducted by Justice
