Portland Oreganian, July 9.
For sensational murders and suieidetCi
Portland's suburbs are making a record
that eclipses anything that has occurred
in the great metropolis for several years.
Only a ew weeks ago a young man liv
ing back of Milwaukie, in Clackamas
county shot his aged mother while she
was lying in bed asleep, and then took
his own life with the same weapon, anu"
yesterday a tragedy was enacted in Sell-
wood that not only threw that burg into
a fever of excitement, but created a big
sensation in Portland as well.
Charles Belgrade, a French sport and
gambler, shot and killed Chas. H. Hew
itt, the well known Portland attorney,
and then locked himself in his room and
cut his throat with a razor. Bellgrade
lived on the corner of Ninth and Uma
tilla streets, Sellwood, where he owned
a whole block. On it are two bnildings
the St.Charles hotel, formerly kept as
a resort for French demimonde and
sports, and the other as a saloon on the
corner, in which he lived. The saloon
has not been open for some time, Bell
grade using it as a home, while the ho
tel, which stands back in the center of
the block, has been closed for six months
The circumstances immediately lead
ing np to the fatal quarrel could not be
learned and never will be known, for the
two men were in the house alone. This
much, however, was known there was
A WOMAN IN THE CASE.
Charley Hewitt left Portland Monday
evening in a light one-horse livery rig,
and arriving at Sellwood, put up his
horse in Clayton's stable across the
street from Bellgrade's place. He
erecting a large building diagonally
across from Belgrade's house and has
frequently driven out there to see how
the building is progressing.
After taking a drink or two at Citty
tou'a saloon, Hewitt went over to see
Bellgrade. They spent some time to
gether and drinking, emphasizing their
friendship by a hearty shake of the hand
after each drink. They finally began to
quarrel, but their only weapons were
emphatio adjectives. Fred Clayton
who happened to go over, soon learned
that the bone of contention was a wo
man. "Why don't she come and tell m(
that?" asked Belgrade of Hewitt.
"Ah, she wont tell you" was Hewitt's
Beyond this Clayton was able to catch
but little, as every time he appeared a
little over anxious to catch the drift of
the conversation, Belgrade sent him
away to take a drink by himself.
"Here is 1U cents. Get yourself a
drink and keep away or it will be your
turn," said Bellgrade to Clayton the last
time. Clayton did not understand but
concluded it was best to go.
Tf WAS 'WEB FOOT MAKV."
The woman Hewitt and Belgrade were
wrought up over is said to be "Webfoot
Mary," a female alleged to be Bellgrade's
wife. It is understood that she is en
deavoring to procure a divorce from her
husband, and that Hewitt was her attor
ney. But whether this fact alone led np
to the quarrel which terminated so fa
tally next morning oan never be known.
Both Hewitt and Belgrade took a
glass of beer in Clayton's saloon at a
late hour last evening.
"Do you see this beer?"' asked Bel
grade of Hewitt, with an ominous look
in his eyes that meaut more than Hew
itt ever dreamed. "My life has been
as pure as that beer. I have never hurt
any one, I have never killed any one.
YOU Wild, BE MY FIRST MAS.
I mean to kill you." Hewitt merely
said, "uinpb," and passed the remark as
if it had been nothing more than a joke.
Soon after that the men started back for
the bouse, and then another dispute
arose as to where Hewitt should sleep.
"You sleep in that house," said Bel-"
grade, pointing to his St. Charles hotel.
"No, I'll be d d if I will," replied
Hewitt. "I wuuldn't sleep in that bouse
for 31000. That house is cursed. No,
Pll not do it, I'll chance it sleeping with
you. That was the last heard of tne
two men that night.
Yesterday morning both got up bright
and early, and took several drinks to
gether iu the 6aloon across the street.
Neither was under the influence of liq
uor but thore was a treacherous look
lurking in Belgrade's eyes that boded no
good, while that air of bravado charac
teristic of Hewitt had partially given
way to unconsoious timidity and sus
picion. Hewitt asked Belgrade to take
a ride with him and the latter refused,
saying that he would not leave his place
for a thousand dollars. Not able to per
suade Belgrade he then had Clayton
bitch up bis horse, and took him along
for a ride through the city and a short
distance into the country. Hewitt had
very little tu say, and nothing at all
bearing on tbe quarrel between he and
Belgrade. They soou returned and
Hewitt went back into the house of
Nothing more was beard of either

small group of men standing in fro
the saloon across the street were staniZfarl
by three pistol shots from the direo
of Belgrade's house. The next mon
Hewitt came running out und started to
escape through the back yard. He had
gone perhaps fifty foet, when Belgrade
appeared, armed with a double barreled,
breech-loading shotgun. Seeing that he
was pursued by the determined Frencb
man, Hewitt begged for bis life. Get
ting down on his kuees and turning
around he said,
DON'T, CHARLEY, DO.n't!"
Young Clayton and several other wit
nesses to the scene shouted to Belgrade
nqtt ta shoot, but the Frenchman had
f blood in his eve aud was determined.
He. paid no attention to the appeals of
Hewitt or the protestations of those
standing ocross the street, aud before
Hewitt had gone thirty feet farther (he
had started to run again) Belgrade put
the gun up to his shoulder, aud, taking
deliberate aim, fired. He was not over j
twenty-five feet from Hewitt when he
fired the shot. The charge took effect
in the left side and Hewitt fell over ot
some potato vines a dead man.
Havuig finished his man Belgrade
turned his attention to those who had
dared to address him while bent on his
murderous mission, and holding his gun
m a menacing way fie said, ".Now you
The few witnesses to the bloody trage
dy, among whom were F. ClaytOD, Tony
DageDdorfer, Andrew Anderson and
William Kilpatric, needed no second in
vitation. They stood not on the order
of their going, but went, just bow aud
where they themselves hardly knew.
Such scrambling to get away was never
seen in Sellwood before. Some jumped
over fences, others hid iu barns and
woodsheds, and several women sought
refuge in a cellar. All knew the treach
erous nature of the bloody Belgrade, and
no one cared to risk his life in his pres
The entire village soon was in a fever
of excitement. The news spread from
house to house, and every one witbiu
ten blocks of Belgrade's house was warn
ed not to venture too close. No one
was foolharde or brave enough to see
what had become of Belgrade. The offi-
la of the town voted themselves a va
cation and word was sent to Portland.
The stillness of death reigned in the
Belgrade house until the arrival of the
officials from Portlaud.
ARRIVAL OF THE CORONKK.
Coroner George H. Biver was the first
to make his appearance. He took charge
of the remains of Hewitt and carried
them across the Btreet, where a sheet
was placed over the body, awaiting the
arival of a proper wagon to convey it to
the city. As he bad no business to fool
with a Jive copse, the coroner did not go
into the bouse to inquire iuto the health
of Belgrade, who was supposed to be
alive and only waiting for another vie
Sheriff Kelly, Deputy Sheriff Mizner
and Jailer James arrived about 2 o'clock.
1 ney were also warned to keep aw ay
from the house, as to enter it, they
were told meant certain death. Fortun
ately, however, Multnomah county has
some courageous officers and the strong
rigbt shoulder of Jailer James soon was
bearing against the back door of Bel
grade's residence. It broke in with i
crash, for it was securely fastened from
the inside, and James, Kelly and Miz
ner stepped inside. They were now ic
the long bar room whioh runs the entire
length of the building. From this they
went into the dining room and kitchen,
and then into a small hall leading into
one of the two bed rooms.
A GHASTLY, GORY SPECTACLE.
Here a horrible spectacle greeted
their vision. They found no prisoner
but a oorpse. Belgrade had committed
suie'de and made another subject for
the'eoroner instead of the courts. Ly
ing in front of the bureau with his head
resting against the bureau and one hand
in which was clasped a bloody razor,
was all that was mortal of the murder
ous Frenchman. Ho had made a good
job of it, aud must have died almost in
stantly. The body was already cold aud
a pool of clotted blood was on the floor.
snowing that iielgaade must have com
mitted the bloody aot immediately after
firing the fatal shot at Hewitt. Judging
from the position the body was found in,
Bellgrade must have stood before the
mirror in order to make a sure job when
he cut his throat. He first drew the ra
zor across the right side and then finish
ed by making a much deeper cut across
tbe left, and severing the jugular vein.
The appearance of the room would indi
cate that there had been a struggle.
There was considerable blood spilled
about the walls, and the furniture was
somewhat scattered and disarranged.
As soon as the fact of Belgrade's death
became known the courage of Sell wood's
inhabitants rose '30 degrees, and it was
difficult to keep the crowd away from
the house. When finally the premises
"1 cleared the marshal locked up the
-V THE CROWD AT THE MORGUE.
The two bodies, after being brought to
Portland, were plaoed on stretchers in
the small room in the rear of Coroner
Rivers' undertaking parlors, on Fourth
and Yamhill streets. Here a large and
curious crowd soon collected, all eager
to get a glimpse of the two bodies
Among them were quite a number ot la
dies. Up to 7 o'clock when the morgue
was closed, several thousand people had
satiated their morbid curiosity, and
many were obliged to go away disap
pointed. THE WEAPONS USED.
Hewitt was shot with a 44 calibre Ame
rican bull-dog revolver, and a double
barrel breech-loading Baker gun. The
revolver was found on the bureau in
Belgarde's bedroom, and had four empty
shells, and one chamber in which there
was no shell. Only one shell in the shot
gun was empty. The razor used was a
Johnson pipe pattern.
PEN PICTURE OF THE TWO MEN.
Chas. H. Hewitt was about i2 years of
age. His face was familiar about the
different oourls in the oity, and he had
a lucrative practice. At times he was a
o cnsrrelsome, but he always quickly

upon his arrival in Oregon
' in the office of Judge Staban
in Albany. He was admitted to the bar
with the class Judge Stearns was a mem
ber of, and since then practiced his pro
fession in this ciiy. His relations with
Belgrade, for whom he acted as attorney,
were always the most friendly until a few
months ago. Just at what time they
had a falling out is not known. But it
must have been about the time Hewitt
undertook to procure a divorce for Bel
grade's wife. He leaves a, wife who is a
practicing physician in Vancouver.
Very little can be said of Belgrade in
his favor. It is said that he was driven
out of Sacramento some years ago, and
since his arrival in Portland his associ
ations have not been of the beet or most
While living in this city he played the
role of a macquereau, living off the
earnings of French courtesans. Dnriu
his two years' residence in Sellwood, he
kept a resort for fast women and sport
ing men. His hotel has been closed for
six months, and it is rnmored about
Sellwood that the house is hauDted or
"oursed," as several women expressed it
to a reporter this afternoon. They say
that whoever goes in there to sleep eith
er gets killed or commits suicide.
In appearance Belgrade is of medium
size and build, has black hair and the
conventional heavy black moustache.
Be was about 40 years of age, and be

as far as can be learned, he leaves no

Atlanta, Ga., July 9. Mrs. Chas.
Gould, who is confined in jail at Murphy,
N. C, on a charge of murdering her
husband, declares the killing was unin
tentional; that she was forced to do it to
protect herself from a man who, when
sober, was a loviug husband, but who,
when under the influence of liquor, was
an inhuman brute, whose chief pleasure
lay iu torturing her with threats of vio
lence. It was not the husband that this
quiet, golden-haired little woman killed,
it was the beast.
The stcry in brief is thatGouldand his
wife came to England, where they spent
