Mrj of (be Murder.
Trank W. Richardson, n. member of the
Fife-Richardson Mercantile Comp inv of
this city, was shot and killed at ills home
about 9 o'clock Chri.Umas Eve last. A
bullet from a 22-caliber revolver entered
just beneath the base of the skull, behind
me rignt ear. ana ranged upward and to
the- left, through the brain, and found lodg
ment In the vicinity of the left ear. Pow
der marks wru found on the right side of
the face, just in front of the ear. His
wife, who was in the room at the time,
savs that his death was instantaneous.
in her testimon- before the Coroner's Jurv
she stated that she heard her husband come
into the hill and as he was entering the
bedroom where she was with her hat and

Into the room. She lighted the lamp, anil
after discovering that he had been killed,
ran to a near neighbor and gave the alarm,
cring for help as she went along. She
also testified that just after the rcnort of
the pistol she heard a noise in the kitchen
like a door or window slam, but concluded
that hr servant had returned and called
to her. but got no answer. When she dis
covered that her husband had been killed,
loncluded that it was the assassin making
his escape through the bark door. It was
shown before the Coroner's jury that Mr.
Richardson and his wife had made ar
rangements to attend an entertainni":it at
the opera-house that night, and that she
was to meet him at bis place of business
and go from the: p.
Theory of the I'ronecntlon.
About 8:45 Mr. Richardson left his store
and started towards his home, and about 3
o'clock a telephone message was sent to
the store stating that he was shot. When
the news was received It was the general
opinion of those who heard It that It was a
case of suicide, but when the parties
searched the house and heard the statement
of his wife and no pistol could be found.
It was concluded that he was murdered.
Thj theory' of the prosecution from the
Ftnrt has been that Mr. Richardson sus
pected his wife, went horre, discovered that
the light was out and that there was a
man in the room with her, and that when
he "ntercd the room the fatal shot was
llred by one of the parties.
Mrs. Richardson claims tint she was
alone In the room when her husband ar
rived, and had just put the light out with
the Intention of starting to the store and
that the fatal shot was fired from the
hallway by some one unknown to her.
International Zinc Stockholders

New York, March 14 Stockholders of
the exploded International Zinc Company,
who will meet on Saturday at No. 6S Wall
street to discuss a plan of action, will con
sider a project for reorganization, which
Charles H. A. Dougherty of that address
has had called to his attention. W. B.
Knne. cashier of the rirst National Bank
of Carterville. Mo, embodied It in u letter
to Mr. Dougherty.
Mr. Kane sajs that the Free Coinage
mine, near Jopdn, owned by the concern.
Is worth $55,000, and that an added value
In machinery and a mining lease of $5 000
make the gross assets of the company SC0.
000. Liabilities are a mortgage of RM.OOO on
this mine which will be sold In foreclosure
on March SO and a floating debt of $12 000.
of which 59.0W can probably be disregarded,
as It is a claim of Joshua Brown & Co.
Assuming the valid liabilities to bo $33,000,
then an equity of $27,000 is left.
Mr. Kane advises that a trustee b se
lected to buy In the mine at foreclosure
and thinks it can be purchased for $2,500
more than the mortgage. The trustea
shoeld turn It o.-er to a new company, he
said, which should Issue 550,000 worth of
bonds out of the proceeds of which the
mortgage should be p-iid off. The Free
Coinage mine, it is estimated, can earn
$5 000 a year. The plan, which Is not very
fully outlined, has merely the object of
saving the small equity, that remains, and
it is highly doubtful If the stockholders
will go Into It.

Governor Wells of Utah Says It

Salt Lake. Utah. March 14. Governor
Wells has vetoed the Kvans bill, relating
to the making ot complaints and com

The veto mes-age, which Is lengthy, con
cludes as follows:
"I yield to no one In affection for those,
my people, who. from the highest motives
and because they believed it a divine com
mand, entered into the relation of plural

self a. product of that marriage system,

as approved of the Almighty, and proud
to-dav. as I have ever been, of my herit

Instinct of mv nature reaches out to shield
my friends from harm and to protect them
from unjust attack. Their cause is my
cause, nnd when they are hurt I am hurt,
for I am part ot them.
"But in that same heart which is filled
with sympathy for them I find, also, the
solemn feeling that this bill holds out only
a false" hope of protection, and that. In
offerirjr a phantom relief to a few. It in
reality invites a deluge ot discord and dis
aster upon all.
"For these reasons, briefly and Imperfect

might be given at length. I am unable to
approve the bill now before me."

A subscriber In Sitka, Alaska, suggests
tint a village of Alaskans be brought to
the Fair, with their hoti'os. Implements of
.hourehold tire, war and the chase, and
ivervthlng els- which goei to make up a
tvplc.il native settlement. He sajs that
tl cse people have many habits and cus
toms which people dwelling in the tem
perate zone have no idea of. The entile
exhibit could be set III St. Ixiuls at com
parative! small cost, and no trouble would
be experienced in inducing a community
of the hardy Alaskans to take the trip.
He believes that so valuable a territory
should be well representid at an exposi
tion such as Is to be held lu St. uis.
For a "permanent monument to com
memorate the celebration, it is sugge-led
that a colossal bronze statue be erected
to the momoiv of Thomas Jefferson, to
stand on an elevated cliff on the banks of
the Mississippi River, the monument to bo
surrounded by a park of seveinl acres. In
all time to come this would bo a reminder
to all pi'rons passing up and down the

placed lu some kind of high tow or. so as
to be visible- from any part of the grounls.
lu connection with the big timepiece there

Testimony introduced at the Coroner's In

body of P. J. Goff. who was run over and
killed Tuesday night by a Transit car In
St. Louis County, developed the strange
story of a St. Loula County Elrl who. In
tuitively foreseeing the fatal disaster that
might Lefall a man unknown to her, dogged
his footsteps, anxious to avert tho threat
Through the darkness and rain, with only
an occasional flash of lightning to guide
her, MIs Bertha Stille, a young woman
who lives en St. Vincent avenue near tho
St. Charle3 Rock road, followed Goff for
more than an hour on the fatal Tuesday
night to protect him. If the emergency
arosc, from death on a railway trestle. As
a witness before tho Coroner yesterday.
Miss Stille related a story which the jury
and spectators heard with much Interest.
Miss Stille is tho soprano soloist In a
church choir that rehearses every Tuesday
nlght at Hamilton and Bartmer avenues.
Sho said that while she was waiting Tues
day evening on the St. Charles Rock road
for a car to take her to tho city she noticed
a man staggering, as though under the in
Jluenre of liquor. He was evidently waiting
for a car. and his impatience soon found
vent in audible imprecations against the
"Finally, he said he would wait no long
er." said Miss Stille. "and started to walk,
taking a path between the rails. It was
already dark, and he evidently could not
realize the danger ho was courting. I de
termined to follow him, because I knew the
trestle was only a short distance away,
and I also knew that If he slipped and fell
through the ties In the trestle his death
would ho inevitable. Had such an accident
befallen him he would have had no time to
extricate himself before the south-bound
car was upon him. I he fell. I reasoned.
I could run ahead and signal the motorman,
to stop. . . .
"ArT-arcntlv the man wa3 In a very bad
humor, and for that reason I said nothing
to him. but nevertheless followed quietly
behind, unknown to him. It sraw very dark
and began to rain. The repeated flashes of
1 ghtnlng enabled me to keep the man in
sight and to measure the distance between
ir. It was not a great distance to the
bridge, but the man stopred often and at
best made but pcor progress. Finally we
reached the trestle. He did not esa to
cros3 It. but left the track and disappeared
In tho darkness. I felt very much relieved,
and, returning to my waiting place, took
the next car tor the city."
An hour later Goff wan killed. In some
way he had again found his way back to
the railroad, and thW time there was no
one to warn or save him. Miss Stille heard
of the accident after choir practice. The
matter preved on her mind, and after tak
ing a car to Well-ton she hastened to the
scene of the accident on foot, no cars be
ing at har.d. She declared that she ran
every step of the way. reproaching herself
the while for not having taking further
precautions for the man's safety. She Iden
tified the corpse as that of the man whom
rh had followed. ...
