Los Angeles, Cal., July 23. Gej.
T. Bennett, proprietor of the Ben
nett Electrical company, was Bhot
and killed last night by Estelle Cor
well, a young woman with whom he
has lived for five years. At the time
of the shooting he was sitting on the
porch of the house of Miss Marguerite
Bennett, who, though of the same
name, was no relation.
Miss Corwell aald that Bennett ha
of late been a frequent caller on Miss
Bennett and ahe became convinced
that he was about to desert her.
1U IXmblo IJfe.
Little was known of Bennett's pri
vate affairs as he conducted his busi
ness In one part of the city and re
sided In another, spending his llesure
hours in the latter section. By this
means he was able to keep his busi
ness associates and patrons from
knowing of his evil life.
Bennett was known in the busi
ness world as an honorable man, who
paid his debts' promptly and filled
his contracts to the letter.
The woman who killed him, today
said that she had lived with him for
the past five years and Uiat until re
cenUy he had been a model lover,
but that of late he had ibeen frequently
a caller on Misa Bennett, who knew
nothing of Bstelle Corwell. The latter
shadowed him on several occasions
and learned of Ida infatuation, as she
terms it, with the result that she pro
tested to him, but without avail, tine
then determined to kill htm and her
self, but was captured before sho
could commit suicide.

been Imt in that vicinity since yester

A man who came in this afternoon
from that vicinity started that the two
children wvre small and had been

Frantic with grief, she began to
search the neighborhood, hoping
every moment to find her children
with those of some neighbor, but her
fears were confirmed when she leara

The alarm was given and for sev
eral hours her husband with the as
sistance of several friends searched
the roads, town and neighborhood for
the children but without success.
As darkness came on, the search be
came more general and finally hun
dreds of men, women and children,
mounted and on foot, took up the
trail, only to be disappointed.
All night they searched and as
morning broke, their disappointment
was pitiful. The agonized mother

MANY SURVIVORS HAVE
BEEN LANDED AT
The Steamer Pomona Added
Thirty Nine to Number
DEATH LIST STILL
NEAR ONE HUNDRED
San Francisco, Cal., July 23. The
arrival of the steamship Pomona
from the north is anxiously awaited
today as she Is known to have a num
ber of survivors of the steamer
Columbia on board. It is hoped that
the loss of life will not be as large
as at fimt reported. It is known
that of the 188 .passengers on the
Columbia, 97 were saved by the
Oeorge W. Elder, which towed the
Sun Pedr6 to Kureka. There were
sixty in the crew of the Columbia and
of these thirty-eight were on the
Keports from Shelter Cove an
nounce the arrival of .one boat with
ilfteen more of the passengers and
crew, leaving the total death roll at
Only One ISout Found.
So far only one boat has arrived
at Shelter Cove. It is eald that be
fore the steamer sank, six boats and
three life rafts were launched. These
are yet to be heard from and it is ex
pected that steamers passing up and
down the coast will succeed in pick
ing them up.
That so many escaped is accredit
ed, strange to say, to the fact that
the boilers exploded when the
steamer was sinking, counteracting
the tremendous suction and saving a
number or people in the water from
being drawn into the vortex.
Xot a few passengers on the Co
lumbia were teachers, and their
mends who have been attending the
National Educational association con.
venttcn at Los Angeles.
Pomona lU'wued 39.
Pacific count steamer Pomona ar
rived in San Francisco from Kureka
this afternoon, bringing from the lat
ter place one surviving pasnanger of
the wrecked steamer Columbia, Miss
A. Leldell, of thla city, and thirty
two members of the crew of the Co
lumbia, who were saved from the
complement of fifty-nine. She
brought no bodies.
An erroneous report had been cir
culated that the Pomona waa bring
ing a number of the Columbia's pas
sengers, and a throng of eager men
and women assembled on the deck.
When the gang plank was hoisted on
the Pomona's deck the people were

Boise, Idaho, July 28. Renumlng
his argument, for the defenne in the
nay wood case his morning At
torney Kichardsotv reverted to the
Bradley explosion briefly to call at
tention to the testimony of the wit
ness, who said that Orchard declared
that "Bradley got what was coming
to him, and there's a chap named
Steunenberg who Is going to get his."
Tiaclng Orchard back to Denver,
w here he made the second attempt on
the life of OjV. Peiabody, Richardson
declared that absolutely no corrobor
ation had been offered to Orchard's
story of sotting a bomb under the
sidewalk, and its failure to explode.
Orcliard Story Not Supirted.
The attorney also declared that no
sufficient explanation had been of
fered as to why Orchard abandoned
from time to time, his attempts on
the lives of Governor Peabody, Judges
Ooddard and Oabbert, Sherman Hell
and Hearne, lie said that if the
crimes were inspired by the murder
ous "inner circle," they would not
have been abandoned without some
"When you consider all the testi
mony In this case, I think you will
reach with me the conclusion that
this man Orchard was possessed of
a mania to kill. Sometimes his lusrt
was greater than at others, and so it
was that he was at times strong in
his purpose and sometimes wavering.'
He said Orchard's story was the
most "absurd story on the face of the
Orchard's' Attempts at Murder.
Richardson ridiculed . Orchard's
story as to hla being ordered "to get"
David H. Moffat, president of the
First National bank of Denver. He
declared that Haywood depoHlted all
the funds of the federation in this
bank and was a constant visitor
there. He said he was on terms of
almost Intimacy with Moffaibt.
He also pointed out how easy Or
chard could have killed Sherman Bell
had he desired. He declared that if
the federation EeJt resentment against
Hell, who commanded the militia,
and against UeneraJ liulkeley Wells,
who was prominent In the militia,
and Mine owners' association it was
not made public.
"A Sectueiilar Murderer."
Orchard did not even make an at
tempt against the latter, while it was
evident that no serious attempt, if
any, was made against Hell.
lie said that while every state ex
pected to take care of chines com
mitted within Its borders, Colorado
had sent an "ocean, of her dirty linen
here for you gentlemen to wash."
Coming again in the course of his
argument to the death of Oov. Steu
namberg, the attorney said that the de
fense is willing to aumlt that Or
chard committed that deed exactly
as he described it. He said Stieuneni
berg's manner of going around the
state and taking long drives each
week to the sheep camps made him
an easy mark for a rille. It would
have been ensy to shoot him if one
wished to kill him in any but a
"I say to you, Orchard had a mania
for crime and for committing crime
In a way that would attract atten
tion," declared Richardson to the
Richardson then took up the con
nection of Jack Himpklns with Or
chard. As to the disappearance of
Slmpklns after the death of Steu
nenberg, Richardson said that he
too, would have lied under similar
circumstances, athough there was
not an lota of evidence to connect
Kimpklna with the crime. Slmpklns
had one exeprlence in the Idaho bull
pen and felt that his only safety was
Man With a Motive.
Orchard, Richardson said, was a
man who had a motive against Steu
neneberg. It mattered not whether
he had deeded away his property
prior to leaving Coeur D'Alenes or
not. The tihougtvt was always going
through his brain that he would hove
been a rich man if it had not been for
Steunenberg. This thought was ex
pressed to many and Richardson de
iiid that they were lying.
He reviewed Orchard's movements
Just prior to the killing and sold his
straightened financial condition when
he was reduced to robbing a cash
register, of burglarising a railroad
station and borrowing money from
his friends, gave the lie to the theory
tht the federation was paying for the
crime, and that lie could get money
whenever he desired it.
The court took a recess nt 11:20
until 6 o'clock. Attorney Richardson
announced that he positively would

The crews of the American vessel
deny that there is any other reason
than the alleged Insults at Jamestown
for their intention to "get even" with

that the present discussion over the

empire does not enter Into their
grievances. Their open .boasts o
what they intended to do to the Jap
