CRACK IN THE SKULL
KILLED BEN HADDOCK
Autopsy Held by County Physician Mayo Throws New
Light on the Tragedy of Monday
An abnormally thin skull Is said by
.doctors to account for tho death of
Benjamin K. Haddock, who died Mon
day night, after a tussle with his son-in-law,
George E. Porter. The autopsy,
which was held nt Joseph "William Tay
lor's undertaking parlors hist night by
County Physician H. N. Mayo and As
sistant County Physician Odell, showed'
Haddock's heart and other internal or
gans to be in good condition. A slight
fracture of the skull behind the left ear
and an abrasion on the left arm at the
elbow were the only signs of violence
to be found.
Tho fracture of the skull must havo
been tho cause of death, although, the
physicians say, such an Injury would
not, under ordinary circumstances,
prove serious. Owing to tho unusual
thinness of the bone the fracture could
have been produced by a very moderate
blow and It Is possible that mero press
ure on the head caused It. Coroner
Clark and County Attorney Wcstervelt
were present at tho autopsy and took
The Coroner has ordered an Inquest,
to begin at 10.30 this morning. All who
were present at the struggle between
Porter and Haddock, Including Mrs.
Porter. Haddock's daughter, and Mrs.
Haddock, will be examined.
Porter was held In the city Jail all
day yesterday and was refused permis
sion to see visitors. No corilalnt avIU
bo filed against him .until iTTr.r the In
quest. YOUNG PORTER TALKS FREELY.
Porter, who is only 21 years old, told
his story last night, apparently without
reserve. lie said1:
"It was a great ourprlsc to me to
learn what had happened last night. I
thought tho worst charge they could
bring against me was wlfe-beatlng,
and that did not worry me, because I
knew It was not so. I hooked up the
horse and wagon, intending to take the
midnight train to Ogden. 1 put a
guitar In the bundle and my wife took
It out. We chewed the rag about It
and I picked it up and' was going to
smash It over the atove. I threw It
over my shoulder and It hit my wife,
who was standing behind me, cutting
a gash over her eye. I did not know I
had hit her, but one of her sisters raw
the blood and ran over to the house,
telling the old man that I was killing
"Haddock came running over and) I
met him on the doorstep Without say
ing a word he hit me on the eye with
the stub of his arm. I clinched with
him and threw him down. I don't know
which one of us was on top, but It
seems to jne I was at tho bottom. His
wife and the children piled on top of
us and I thought It was time for me to
got out, so I crawled out.
HE OFFERED HIS HAND.
"When Ben got up I offered him my
hand and told him that I was willing
to treat him as a non-In-law should If
he would) act square with me. He re
fused to take my hand and call It off.
We was standing chewing the rng and
I thought everything would' be settled
all right, when Jake Carrlck came up
carrying a club and apked what the
trouble was about. I told him It was
none of his affair, and had some words
with him. The old man kept getting
madder and madder, and finally I told
my wife that we had better go to keep
out of trouble.
"I was not drdnk. I had had three
glasses of beer and' that was all. We
took supper nt Ben's- house and every
thing was pleasant there then. We
were laughing and joshing, and when I
asked permission to leave a machine on
the porch he said I must put It in the
house, where It would not be damaged
by the rain.
"My wife is 22 years old. We had
been married about eighteen months
and never had any trouble before."
Porter said he was confident that
Haddock's head did not strike anything
when he fell, and he wao at a loss to
account for the fracture of the skull.
The young man talks like one who has
nothing to conceal, and It is Impossible
to believe that he really desired to do
any serious harm to his father-in-law
because of the childish quarrel he had
had with his wife.

PRESIDENT JOSEPH F. SMITH
WILL TELL STORY FIRST
(Continued Prom Page 1.)
this afternoon reported favorably the
nomination of Smith Woollcy to be as
sayer In charge of the Boise (Ida.) as
say ofllc'e. The committee declined to
send for Special Agent Ball's report,
upon which the charges against Wool
ley are based. The fight against con
firmation will now be made on the
floor of the Senate. Senator Teller will
Introduce a resolution calling on tho
Secretary of the Treasury for all pa
pers In the case.
The nomination was taken up in ex
ecutive session of the Senato today and
Senator Teller offered a resolution call
ing upon the Secretary of the Treasury
for copies of the reports concerning I
Judge Woolley's record In tho employ
ment of the Government in Idaho. He
explained In support of the resolution
that he had made an effort to bring the
Information before the Committee on
Finance, but the Republican members
had put him oft from time to time and
finally had voted not to send for the re
ports. Ho said he understood that the re
ports sustained two charges of black
mail, and that the offenses had been
committed while Judge Woolley was
Berving as a collector of Internal reve
nue. Republican Senators denied that se
cret service officials who conducted the
Investigation of the charges had con
victed Woolley of the offenses charged,
and In opposition to the resolutions said
that the reports are on file at the
Treasury department, where any Sena
tor may examlno them without pub
licity, Senator Dubola today introduced, and
the 6ame was passed, a concurrent
resolution to bring forth all bills re
garding lands within the five-mile limit,
which had passed the House and back
to tho Senate. He will now introduce
a concurrent resolution to permit the
engrossing clerk to correct an error In
the bill which occurred In the Land of
fice. Senator Dubois says only a day
or two will be required to perfect the
bill, which will then be passed by both
houses at once.
Senator Kearns accompanied Sena
tors Mitchell and Fulton of Oregon to
the Interior department, where a con
ference was held with Forester Pin
chat regarding the granting of a right
j of way through the Blue Mountain for
est reservo In Oregon, for the purpose
of extended the Sumpter Valley rail-,
road, In which Utah people are Inter
ested. Mr. Plnchat agreed to give the
I permit desired, provided assurances
were given that the road will be con
structed. Senator Kearns had a long confer
ence with Admiral Walker, chairman
of the Isthmian Canal commission to
day regarding positions for some of his
The Senator also talked with Chief
' Forester Plnchat regarding forest re

to the Aquarius reserve and those in

' fore any more lands be set aside for
forest reserves that he be given oppor
tunity to be heard. He was assured
this would be done.

UNDER COVER OF
DARKNESS OF NIGHT
Japan Sending Thousands Upon
Thousands of Troops Into
.. . Korea.
VICTORIA, B. C, March . 1. The
Royal Mall steamer Empress of India
arrived tonight from Japan. The most
interestlngr; portion of her news from
the Orient was that Japan was ship
ping vast numbera of troops by night
aeroys to Korea,
No troops are moved by day, and no
man knew when he would be called
away. Officers were missed from
club9, and men from their accustomed
haunts, and the explanation was that
they had been summoned during the
night, shipped aboard) the transports
and destined for Korea.
It Is estimated by passengers who
have been observing that Japan had at
least 0,000 troops landed on the Korean
shore bofore the Empress of In
dia sailed, and they were going over
nightly, many thousands at a time.
It is understood that the dispatch of
troop3 Is to continue until 200,000 men
are at the disposal of the Japanese Gen
erals at the front.
British merchant vessels of largo ton
nage were being bought up hurriedly
by cable from the owners in Britain.
One Captain, Williamson, of the Dun
dee, Scotland, steamer Arara, had to
clear out of his vessel on three hours'
notice at Kobe. No sooner was the
last seaman off the boat with his dun
nage than Japanese troop service men
swarmed aboard and began erecting
wooden bunks everywhere for all tho
troops that could be packed on and un-
CASSiNI HAS A GHAT
WITH SECRETARY HAY
Russian Minister Discusses Anti
American Peeling in Russia
and Blames Newspapers.
WASHINGTON, March l.-An Impor
tant conference, lasting inoro than an
hour, occurred between Secretary Hay
nnd Count Casslnl today. Tho growing
Ill-feeling In Russia against Americans
and the continued attacks of certain por
tions of the American press upon Russia
was tho main subjects discussed.
Count Casslnl oIbo Informally Inquired
about tho report that the Commercial
Cable company had applied for landing
privileges at Guam for a cablo from that
Island to Japan. Ho was assured by Mr.
Hay that this Government at present was
considering no such application.
The Embassador did not give any Inti
mation as to what tho attitude of his
Government would bo In this matter. Tho
Associated Press dispatches from St
Petersburg, however, havo stated that
thu Russian Government would view
askance tho granting of such privileges
by this Govornmont, and It Is assumed
that this Government has declined for tho
present to consider such an application.
To a correspondent of the Associated
Press Count Cosaini said that tho Russian
people long since had learned to regard
tho peopl of this country as their fast
friends, and that It had been a bitter dis
appointment to them to find American
newspapers attacking the Russian Gov
ernment, the Russian peoido and Russian
policies, lie said the first feeling of his
Eeoplo had been one of painful surprise,
ut that this Is now crystallizing Into a
doplorablo feeling of unfriendliness.
"Tho tono of Russian newspapers," said
tho Embassador, "a consequence of the
tono of rrany American newspapors, Is
beginning to tako a very painful direc
tion In their references to tho United
States, and In my opinion It Is In tho in
terest.1! of both countries that some meas
ures shall be taken to check this beforo It
Is too late.
"Fortunately tho relations of the two
Governments continue, as always, abso
lutely friendly, and for this reason I am
hopoful that tho present unfriendly atti
tude on tho part of the press of the two
countries will not be lasting.
"Tho friendliness of tho American nnd
Russian Governments, It 13 my belief,
furnishes the basis for tho restoration and
preservation of tho traditional friendship
of their two .peoples, and I hope some
means may bo found for tho latter to
reach a better understanding."
"What Is tho cause of tho present un
friendly policy of tho Russian press to
ward this country?" the Embassador was
He responded: "It Is the constant un
friendly feeling expressed In many Amor
lean newspapers against Russia. I am
sure that when these attacks, which so
far as Russia can see are without cauye.
end the relations of Russia and tho United
States will no longer be clouded.
"I am convinced of this because a care
ful analysis of tho criticism expressed In
this country falls to show any real ground
for the bad feeling which evidently
prompts them. My people naturally can
not understand these attacks upon them,
and have asked In all seriousness the rea
son for them. For example, one roason
whicii has been advanced is that this
country Is displeased that Russia was un
oble to evacuato Manchuria last October.
It was tho earnest hope of my Govern
ment that It would be possible to with
draw Its troops from Manchuria at that
tlmo. The necessity of safeguarding our
peculiar and predominant position there,
a position which has been recognised by
all the powers, made it Impossible for tho
evacuation to tako place wlt.i safety.
This, In plain words. Is the reason why It
has been Impossible for tho evacuation to
tako place "

for an unknown destination on the
