The Son of Millionaire Wentz, of
Philadelphia, Is Found Dead in he
Mountains -of Virginia, With Several
Ballet Holes in His Clothes The
Body Guarded, Awaiting Arrival of
BRISTOL, Va., May 9. The body of
E. L. Wentz was discovered in the
mountains near tKelly View, Wise
county, Virginia, Sunday afternoon by
a miner employed at Blackwood Va. It
lies tonight exactly as first seen and
around it stands a guard of twenty-five
men under command of the superinten
dent of the Osaka plant of the Virginia
Iron and Coal Company. The body has
not been disturbed in any way and
will not 1e until tomorrow, when D.
B. Wentz and J. L. Wentz, brothers
of the dead man will arrive on the
scene. As no examination of the body
has been made, little so far has been
learned as to the cause of death. All
seem to agree that he was shot, but
whether it is suieide or murder is the
question. Two front teeth are gone,
presumably shot out and holes thought
to be bullet holes are found through
the coat and vest just below the ribs
on the left side.

Fire Adds to the panic and Makes a
Scene .of Terror Force of Collision
Was Terrific The Arrest of Conduc
tors and Motorntan Has Been
; Ordered. V
NEW YORK!, May 9. A rear-end
collision between two trains on the
Third Avenue 'Elevated road between
56th and 57th, this afternoon killed
Motorman Cornell, of the rear train,
and seriously injured five passengers.
The firemen took the injured down on
ladders. The trains were on the south
bound track. The first ear of the rear
train smashed Its way . three-quarters
length through the rear car of the sec
ond train and exposed wires set fire to
the wreckage. The fire added to the
panic. With such force did the rear
train ram the one 'in front that the
cars were lifted from the tracks and
then settled down with a crash. Tot
tering on the edge of the elevated
structure, the two cars hung out over
the side at an angle of about 45 de
grees, but; the coupling held and they
were soon; propped np by the firemen.
So great was the feree of the collision
that the cars could not be drawn apart
and it was necessary to drop them in
pieces. The arrest of the conductors
of both trains and the motorman of the
first train was. ordered.
He Chased a Street Car Conductor W:
a Kevolver and' Caused, tne - passen
gers to: Leave in Fright, and Paid
Two Hundred Dollars for His Fan.
Dr. Thomas E. Strong, the dentist,
paid $200 in gold into the city treasury
this noon for bis escapad of a week
ago Sunday night, when he chased a
conductor on a McAllister street ear
with a revolver and caused aU the pas
sengers to leave in fright. -
Mrs. Strong was convicted by Police
Judge Mogan of disturbing the peace in
that she called tue arresting officers
names, according to their testimony.
Miss Annie Boline, who was with the
Strongs and attempted to act aspeaee
maker, was permitted to go free and
the charge of disturbing the peace was
dismissed. Dr. Strong was fined $50 on
a charge of disturbing the peace ftnd
150 for exhibiting a deadly weapon. ,
Attorney Archie Campbell made a
plea for leniency, saying that all three
defendants had been kept in jail for
some time on the night of their arrest;
that Strong hf d been under a physi
cian's care for a year and was unable
to work for six months' of that time,
consequently being in straightened
financial circumstances.
"A, small fine would be sufficient but
for the drawing of that pistol," Judge
Mogan replied. "It caused people to
leave the car for sefety's ) sake. I
think that was a terrible occurrence.
Bat for his family I would send him to
jail. It was. a most aggravated offense.
Dr. Strong was intoxicated, ugly and
vicious. I have no sympathy with any
body who inconveniences people in the
theaters, street ear or public streets
with acts of rowdyism. I will give him
scant eonrtesy and tittle mercy, wheth
er the guilty man is a professional man
or laborer.
Dr. 8trong persisted in having trou
ble. Conductor Brady was very inof
fensive. Dr. Strong struck him when he
waa not looking. The conductor is av
small man and when he struek him, na
ture's weapon was not enough for Dr.
8trohg, and he drew a revolver. He
even says be would have shot and pos
sibly killed some passengers if the con
ductor had, followed him." San Fran

Bitter Resolutions Introduced in Meth
odist General Conference at Los An
geles But; the Cooler Sentiment Pre
dominated and the Resolutions Were
Referred to a Committee.
LOS ANGELES, May 9. The atti
tude of the Catholic church toward the
public school system furnished the sub
ject of a sensational debate in the
Methodist conference today. While
there was! a strong disposition on
the part of certain delegates to have
the conference adopt resolutions com
mitting it to extreme utterances, there
was an overwhelming sentiment against
any such action and the entire matter
was finally disposed of by referring it
to a committee, from which it is un
likely ever; to be reported.
Several other resolutions bearing up
on the subjects of divorce, termination
of the membership of neglectful mem
bes, Sunday cloning of Lewis and Clark
exposition, the endowment of th Amer
ican University St Washington, chang-
in the wording' of various paragraphs
in the disclipine and other matters of
importance"' were submitted and debat
ed by the ;several committees.
State Senator McGinn's forceful elo
quence will be heard reverlwprating
through Jhe, legislative halls of Ore
gon's capitol that is to say, not in. the
gathericg of the sobihs that is. expected
to take place in January of the coming
year. Multnomah's doughty , Senator
has taken the step which -so seldom
suggests itself to the politician with
serious results he has lesigned, " the
document conveying that decision hav
ing reached the bands of Governor
Chamberlain yesterday. ,
.Senator McGinn says the reasons im
pelling him to this step are purely per
sonal, emanating from the demands of
his bnsioess, and he makes the decision
now so that the place can W filled at
the June election, f The: news caused a
ripple if excitement and , speculation
around the State House and among
politicians who beard of it. "What
does it meant" ''What's the matter
with Henry f" were heard on all sides,
but no satisfactory answer was forth
coming and the curious ones' must re
main, content with their own con
jectures. i Some facts have been known to ob
serving friends of : Senator McGinn for
a long time. One is that his political
and legislative enthusiasm' showed de
cided abatement during the. last ses
sion. He didn't seem happy among his
associates from the metropolis. Thing
weren't moving the way he was accus
tomed to see them go and at to time
was there any evidence of his wonted
fire and virility. Since the close of last
session he "hasn't ; smiled approvingly
upon the manipulation of the machin
ery of Multnomah county; there! are
bands at the crank which -he does not
look upon with confidence, but he has
found no means to break loose heir
hold, so it is highly probable "that he
has derided to pull in his jkditical Sails
entirely until the winds blow f rom , a
more favorable direction and that he
will steer his bark into the placid
waters of the business sea, where his
law practice is fast '.increasing, and
where his forensic eloquence and abil
ity will bring him more substantial re
turns. --''
