playing to more paid admissions than
any other company that has appeared
at the Alrdome this season. The
company is a large one, and In many
respects the best that has been of
fered by the Alrdome management
A list of high claf plays at pop
ular prices Is announced for the com
ing week, many of which have never
been attempted by a company play
ing at popular prices. Among the
others Is "Why Women Sin." a play
which has had a successful run In
all the cities of the middle west.
"Wyoming," a close counterpart of
the celebrated "Arizona," and "Gay

Every play put on by this com

and each member of the company
seems to fit perfectly Into the role

Prominent Callfornlan First
Shot G rl to Death and
iSanta Cruz, Cal., Nov. 18. Major
Frank McLaughlin, republican poli
tician and one of the best known
men in the state, shot his only
daughter, Agnes, through the head
today at their beautiful home, Gol
den Gate villa, and a few minutes
later ended his own life with cyanide
Before he swallowed the deadly
poison he telephoned the news of his
awful deed and equally terrible in
tention to W. T. Jeter, ex-lieutenant
governor of California. When his
frightened friends arrived he was al
ready dead, while his daughter lay
in a bloody pool upon the iloor, dy
The tragedy was enacted upon the
anniversary of his wife's death, two
years ago today. McLaughlin had
been promoting a power plant upon
the Feather river, but a lack of
money sent the project crashing a
few days ago, blasting all the pro
moter's hope and ruining him utter
ly. His despondency evidently took an
acute form this morning and, brood
ing over the death of his wife, to
gemer tf1th his more recent troubles
developed a determination to commit
his double crime.
Will Nov.T be Known.
What pleadings, what remonstance
what fatal words passed between him
nnd his daughter will never lc
known. It was 11:30 o'clock, with
the dying girl lying near him that
McLaughlin telephoned to Jeter, af
ter having written over a dozen
-hort notes of farewell to various
"1 have Just killed my daughter:
now I am going to kill myself. Come
down to the oolden Gate vllle."
'With these words McLaughlin an
nounced to his friend the double
tragedy .then being enacted at hU
beautiful Santa Cruz home.
Jeter notified several acquaintan
ces and a physician, and together
they hurried out to Golden Gate vil
la, arriving Just in time to find Mc
Laughlin huddled in a chair and
breathing his last. The daughter,
sprawled upon the floor with blood
streaming from a gaping wound In

A Noted Politician.
-Major Frank McLaughlin was one
of the most wliflely known republi
can politicians in California, and for
many years took an active and lead
ing part In all that was going on in
the management of the republican
party in this Btate. He had been
chairman of the republican state
central committee, a member of the
national committee, and managed
the Daniel Burns campaign for
United States senator.
His inderitiflcatlon with politics
made him a familiar figure In Wash
ington and he had a hand In most
of the "connuential" gatherings of
hL party when political policies, lo
cal or national, were under discus
sion as relating to the Pacific slope.
In all of his political activities he
figured as sympathetic with, where
not the direct agent of, the Southern
Pacific Hallway company.
He was a promoter of large min
ing ventures, and in this capacity
moved between San .Francisco, New
York and London. Major McLaugh
lin's personality was genial, and few-
men In the we.t had so large a circle
of aCQualnances as he.

Prescott, Ariz., Nov. 18. Yester
day morning Frank Ievlne was shot
and fatally wounded by Bud Neil, at
Lone Pine station, about two miles
ast of the city. The injured man
was taken to he Mercy hospital, at
noon, yesterday. At a late hour little
covery by the attending physicians.
Neil fired two shots from a 44 cal
lin-r Colt's revolver at Devine, both
of which touk elTect. One of the bul
lets entered the left breast, and
pierced the left lung. The other en
tered the left side, about two inches
below the ribs. Both lodged in the
body, and at a late hour last night
had not ben located.
After the shooting Nell rode to the
illy ana surrendered to IH-puly ner
Iff Burns. Mrs. levine, who was seat
ej in her buggy, near the station,
when the shooting occurred, drove
here at once and engaged medical as
Kitance for her wounded husband.
Ir. Linn drove to the assistance of
1 -vlne and found him In a partially
intoxicated condition and weak from
the loss of blood.
From what could be learned of
the affray it appears that Devine and
Neil had been drinking together for
s-everal hour before. Both are al
leged to have been intoxicated. They
left the place to go to the Devine
home, known at the Four-Mile house
about two miles distant. Mrs. Devine
was a member of the party. Iwine,
according to Ntsal's statement, when
he surrendered, asked Neil to ride In
