That Albert 'Ernest Lowrence threat

that the mnnler was premeditated was
the effect of an affidavit sworn to
before Attorney General Brown yester

21st street in this city, relative to the
recent Klamath county feud. Lawrence

the land as a homestead but when she
was absent for a short time Lawrence
moved into the house and held posses
sion of the property.
Mrs. Todd stated in her aftidavit
that she went in the company of Mrs.
ivuehne some tune ago to the land in
question in order that Mrs. Kuehne
might secure some of her clothes that
were in the house wnn-h was then oc
cupied by -lawrence. At that time the
affidavit states that Lawrence said:
"Lydia, I want you to keep that
damned thing awav 'from here,'' refer
ring to Mrs. Kuehne.
Mrs. Todd replied, "Haven't you a
lot of gall to say that she cannot come
on her own place," an she says that
Lnwience answered:
"It is not hers and if she conies hero
again I will lull her."
Mrs. Todd states that she was very
well acquainted with both Mrs. Kuehne
and Mr. Todd and had know,n them for
some time before the fatal quarrel of
last week i..ich resulted in the death
of Mrs. Kuehne.
