HORRIBLE ASSAULT ON
WIFE AND DAUIHTER
Motive Thought to be Desire to Secure
Agnew Ranch for Himself
Mother and Child are
San Jose, Oct. 14. The Wily" of Char
les Douglas, who committed suicide
yesterday after having made a mur
derous attack upon his wlfo and his
stepdaughter, Miss Aloha Agncw, was
burled today. No mourners followed
the casket; no clergyman was present
at the graic; no prayers were said; no
hymns were sung. It was according to
tho Instructions of Mr J. Douglas, who
i "Take the body and bury It and bring
tho bill to :ne. It is not necessary tnat
there should bo a funeral."
Klftecn-year-old Aloha Agnew, who
with fractured skull escaped from
Douglas and took the Btory of ins
crluiu to the nearest neighbor. Is hov
ering between life una death. The
physicians found thot tho child's fron
till bone had been crushed and that
pieces were pressing upon the brain.
Trepnnlng was found necessary.
Twelve bone splinters were removed,
There were also found a two-Inch frac
tut e of the temporal bone and a three
Inch fracture above. Whllo the physl
clans I'litertaln some hopes, of her re-
c-ovcry they say that complications may
uilxe at any tlmo dining, the next few
days jyhlch would make It ImpojHlble.
After the bane had been pressing
upon her brain was removed the girl's
paralysis began to disappear, and she

Mrs. Douglas has not been so well
today as she was yesterday, although
her Injuries are jio so serious as those
of her daughter. -It Is'bellevod'that shu
Is suffering from nervous shock and
will rally during the next twenty-four
hours. The doctors say there is no
reason why she should not recover.
The police arc still pondering on .io
motive that led Doughs to attempt the
murder of his wife unci stepchild. They
are ubout agreed that bickerings over
property rights had much to do with It.
Whllo the Agnew Btock farm was in
Mrs. Douglas' name, having been In
herited from her ilrst husband, llcury
J. Agnrw, Douglas had put about $5500
of his own money Into it. Tho theory
advanced Is that Douglas had Intended
to kill the whole family, with the ex
c-eptlf.i of his own nine months' old In
fant, and take the chances of getting
away, so that tho property might go to
his child. That he bail planned the as
sault Is shown by the fact that he had
tho rope with which ho attempted to
strangle Aloha conveniently at hand
with tho weapons with which ho made
the assault upon her mother and tier.
It wan supposed yesterday that
Douglas had not injured Irma Agnew,
his three-year-old stepdaughter. It
now del clops that the baby was struck
n sevcro blow over the right eye. Those
who believe Douglas Intended to kill
the entire family Insist tnat he struck
the blow. The , mother Is in doubt
about it, stating that the child may
have been hurt by her own efforts to
save the child.

not be excused on that ground.
"There Is no ouo to pay the men."
pleaded the juror.
"That is bad i for the men," respond

WILSON LAUDS BEET SUGAR
Washington, Oct. H. Secutary of Agriculture Wilson was ask-
ed today whether be had mudo any observation of the trust regard-
lug the price of Hiigms In tho territory where beet sugar operations
arc being carried on. Mr. Wilson said that ho had observed1 these
operations, but that, as n matter of course, It was not for lilm nor
bis department to have nnythll g whatever to do with tights between
the trust and tha beet sugar producers.
"It Is very evident," said Mr. Wilson, "that the sugar trust has '
become seilously alarmed over the meat giowth of the beet sugar i
industry In tho last few years, and this light against beet sugar,
which Is being openly made by tho trust, must convince them that
beet sugar In this country Is not controlled by tho trust,
"Tho troublo with It ull Is that the sugar trust operate only with
cane sugar, which It refines, whereas for about tbe'same money the
beet sugar factories turn out the complete product, doing their own
refilling. I want to repeat again that It will bo only a question of
tlmo when this cduntry will produce from bcots every dollar's worth
of sugar it con consume, nnd hnvo sugar left for export. 1 don't know,
of course', how much money the sugar trust is going to be willing to
spend in Oghting thu beet sugar proilucei-j. Tho trust would line to
.destroy this new Industry, but it cannot do that, becuuse bees pro-
(luce valuable by-products, nnd then, again, the men who are en-
gaged in maklug sugar from beets are nut men w.io are going to be
frightened off by price cutting by somebody else. Elforts of the trust
to kill off the beet sugar business will certainly be In vain, us they
ought to be." '

disposed of and Dr. Cleveland was
round not guilty by Judge Dickey. Mr.
and Mrs. Mossman took the child out
of the lleretanla School and sent her
to the Castle Home Kindergarten, n
private Institution. At t-at placo the
c mill wns taken in on the word of the
pin cut h, wbo stated that she had-been
vaccinated. When seen about me caso
this morning. Mr. Mossman said:
"I Intend to dent this caso to the
end. It looks to niu like spite-work.
What right has the principal of tho
lleretanla School to demand mat the
child he taken back to her school? f
am not aware that a certificate Is nec
essary for a transfer under tho circum
stances, for I have sent my llttlo girl
to n prlvatn school. Resides t.iat; tho
principal or the school stated on tb
witness stand In tho recent case In
the Police Court that c llttlo girl was
too young to be attending the llereta
nla lusltutlon. Sho had been admit ed
by the principal who bad cbargo pre
vious to her administration.
"It is my Intention to keep my lit
tle gill In the Castle Homo Kindergar
ten, aud I do not Intend to brook any
Interference. I know ray rights In the ,
matter, nnd. If thcro Is any attempt
made to take tho girl out of tho kin
dergarten, there will bo troublo and
plenty of It,"
Mr. Mossman was at the police sta
tion this forenoon and, from what he
snld, the action of tho school authori
ties does not seem to moot with tho
approval of the pollco authorities. In
Ibis case there Is another attempt on
tho part of the truant officer to force
himself Into tho Mossman homo, he
will very probably bo ejected. If an
assault takes placo, a warrant will be
Bworn out for tho man's arrest.
It seems i,t was only yesterday the
Mnssmaus received tbo certificate
from Dr. Cleveland, Bhowlng tnat she
had vaccinated tho child. As tnls In
teresting event took place about a
month ago, tho Mossmana are natural
ly nt a loss to account for the delay.
The vaccination of the child by Dr.
Hoffman, about whlh Dr. Cleveland
testified, saying It ws difficult to te.
vaccination from other klnda of marks,
has been proven. Although the Hoaa
mans have not found the certificate,
they have seen Dr. Hoffman' books
and tho entry has been found.
That will please' the
