imI He Wat In New Vork When
Murder Happened
Last Monday morning tho man
held In the county Jail an Illlng.j
worth, the murderer of Ilert WiH-or,
was released, says the Alturas Plain
dealer, lie proved a complete and
positive alibi, leaving no shadow of
d.uiht as to bin identity as'i
Kr.uiclH .'sey of New York. After
tee man had been examined by ex-Shf-itff
MehreiiB of Shasta County
rod the Indian, Wild Jack, he was
lo..dy ijiiestioncd by Plstrlct Attor
tii y llaldwiu and Sheriff Smith. They
obtained a story of his whereabouts
at the time of the murder, as well
as tho various members of bis famly,
v here he wits working mid other
facts. Ho was then photographed
and a detailed description sent to (!.
It. Smith, Chief of Police, of (Jlo
vuvsville. New Yolk.
That ollicer made an exhaustive In
vestigation of r.ll the facts nnd found
them to- bo true;. Allldavita were
obtained from two sisters. Mary A.
Casey, of Oloversvitlo und Murgaret
Dunn, of New York. Moth testified
that at the time that Walker was
killed, who bo was working for and
to the various scars on his hands and
body and how they were made. They
could not have known all these facts
had they not been telling the truth.
An altldavlt was nlso made by Chas.
Dunn. All Identified the photograph
as that of John Francis Casey.
Under these circumstances there
was nothing to do but to turn the
man loose. Hut when wo consider his
remarkable likeness to Dllngsworth,
his size, complexion, and the scars on
his fuce which Wild Jack described
before seeing him, and which no one
before had observed, the enso pro
Bents one of the most remarkable
in the annals of crime and criminals.
No stone was left unturned by both
the District Attorney and the Sheriff
to solve this mystery, and these of
ficers are surely to be commended
for their roal and energy In unravel
ing the tangle of this man's llfo, who
Appears merely to have been unfor
tunate In having a double in the per
son of the murderer, Illngsworth.
As soon as released the man left
for the west apparently glad to get
out of his unfortunate dilemma.

Mexico into an unequal contest, th announcement came today
that r-l)cls and federals have joined forces to repel tho Ameri
cans at Tampico, although tho American battleship and tor
pedo Fiotilla have arrived there.
American refuge at Tampico have been taken out of the
city by German and JlritUh cruise rs, and Charge O'Shaugh
nessy intends to leave Mexico City tonight or tomorrow and
Charge Algara has demanded passports from Secretary Bry
an, saying he intends to leave for Europe today and loaves
Mexican n flairs at Washington in hands of French Embassa
dors; that Americans in Mexico are in danger of mob violence
and thtvt-aii'i American dcmrrstrr'.ns are frequent.
There is the report from tho American Capitol that all
British subjects in Mexico, numbering about 700, have boon
warned by tho British leave that country.
General Mans former Mexican General in command at
Vera Cruz is gathering his forces for an attack on the Ameri
cans. Four troop trains, ono train of horses and a train of
ammunition left Chihuahua last night for Juarez nnd the
American Commander at Elpaso has asked the War Depart
ment for instructions. The embargo on munitions was re
established this morning. '
Many Japanese papers this morning urge the Mikado's
government to sieze the opportunity to force America to set
tle existing difficulties between the two countries.
At Vera Crui four Americans were
killed and twenty wounded when n

Canada to General Maas who refus
ed to comply and asked tor a parley,
which was denied.. Tlie marines ini-
mclhiloly beu.iu to land in whale
boat. When tho Americans ivaclied
the customs house the Mexicans
opened with lillo and artillery lire.
The transport Tralrie Immediately
benau tihelliuit the Mexican ositioiis,
driving them out.. Tho Mexicans
fought from tho housetops and along
tho streets, posting sharpshooters in
towers which were destroyed by
American shells.
The capture of the customs house
was ordered by the American gov
ernment to prevent a big shipment
of ammunition and guns from get-
ting Into Iluerta's hands.

Extension Assured
i nat the Fernly-Klamath road will
be speedily built no longer admits of
a doubt, reports the Alturas Plain
dealer. Besides the 40 miles of road
bed already contracted to the Utah
Construction Company, this week the
Southern Pacific paid into the For
esters office the estimated value of
the timber on the surveyed line from
Lookout to Klamath Falls. The only
news received from the Vole, or Mal

a large crew of men are laying rails
on the road bed completed to or near
the eastern boundary of Harney

Portland, Oregon, April 21 (Spe

of the grown-ups to improve the con

each will be able to remove at least
100 looe rocks from the road near

value to the efforts of a thousand
men and will remove 1,900,000 ob

Dr. Patterson Accomplishes Wonders
in Medical Skill in Treatment
of Lake County Man
Merrill Record: Last Tuesday Dr.
John Patterson performed the final
operation of a series that have
been the means of giving Wm. Har
vey a chance to remain among the
living and possibly to enjoy good
health for the rest of his days. The
case Is one that Is a wonder of sur
gical skill and careful attention that
can scarcely be understood by the
average person, but in medical cir

Mr. Harvey is past sixty years of
c?o. He was injured by a bucking
!-r'rsf a number of weeks aco. His
r"M ic b ne va broken in three
nlic. . a hole torn hi the bottom of
hfs lijuiiler and the passage from
that nrTiva torn completely asunder,
with ether injuries of adjacent parts.
The first operation was for the pur
icr? cf v.-ir'ng the relvle bone toge
ther, providing for the drainage for
tho fluids collecting iu tlia abdomin
el cavity and to close the gaging
wound In the bladder itself. The
next operation provided a temporary
means of taking away the contents
of tlio bladder while the severed pas
sage from the bladder was restored
by surgery and last the one closing
the temporary drainage after the
healing of the proper canal allowed
the bladder to be emptied of its con
tents in its natural way. Briefly
this is told in plain words so that
an understanding can be had of the
wonderful skill that has made each
step of this series of operations suc
cessful for a failure In any one
would have meant defeat in all.
As it is, Mr. Harvey, since the last
operation, is making wondorful
strides toward recovery, and it is
now only a question of time until
he will be restored to good health.
The joy of his devoted wife who has
been constantly at his bedside thro
ugh his ordeal of suffering, is an
other manifestation of the love she
has shown by her faithful services
during his illness.

"Topsy Turvy; of the Courtships
of the Deacon," a musical comedy
produced at Snider's Opera House
last Friday evening by local talent
for benefit of Presbyterian church
under HuT direction of Mrs. R. A.
Clark, assisted by Mrs. L. F. Conn
and Miss Dorothy Bieber, was by
fcr the most pleasing entertainment
that has been given in Lakeview for
a long time. To be appreciated it
is necessary that one must have wit
nessed the performance, for it is im
possible to give a description of the
many amusing situations that arise.
The singing and dancing was especi
ally pleasing, and tho participants
gave evidence of having been care
fully drilled by an efficient instruc
tor. Mrs. Norln and Chester Cjke
man rendered "Are You Going to
Dance" in a most artistic manner
and were heartily encored, while
"By Wireless" by four young couples
was rendered In a manner creditable
to professionals. Paul and Beatrice
Clark made a hit with "I Was Not
Mad at You," and numerous ot.h';r
specialties were equally good.
As Deacon Jones, Carl FeUch
plead his case most admirably with
the coy M,8g SprigKS thlJ part lalog
taken by Mrs. C. '.V. Reynolds.
Many amusing situations arose, and
when Chester Dykeman, as Lord
Clarence, Miss Bieberf as Topsy Tur
vy, and F. Maitland. as Frank Gol-.
den, became mixed up in the affair
the fun became fast and furious.
And to add zest to the occasion the
colored gentleman. Ned, who in
every day life Is R. H. Rogers, be
came mixed up in all sorts of esca
pades. ' Miss Wolf, as Mrs. Claren
don, and Mrs. Norin as May Claren
don acted their parts most admir
ably. The chorus was composed of
Mildred Heryford, Marie Rehart.

work of the project, the construction
of which has been under the super
vision of Chief Engineer G. W. Rice.
The work, he says, has been done in
an entirely satisfactory manner and
it reflects great credit upon Mr.
This is Mr. Martin'3 first trip here
in over three years and he notes
many changes and Improvements in
the country and particularly In Lake

great future in store, and will de

the affairs of the country In pa ernl.
Mr. Martin states that a conservative
era in financial and industrial lines
is notlcaeble due from heavy invest
