THE SORiNNTON TRIBUN-MON d A.Y MORNESTGr. FEBRUARY 112, 1897,
Singular Fate of Airs. Cliapin
IT MAY NEVOR BE EXPLAINED
Tho Wlfu of the Postmaster of I'nlls
Villngu, Conn., null Her Lover
round Pond in the Clmpin Home.
Ono JIiul Killed tho Other nnd
Then Hnd Conunitlcd Suicide.
Fall River, CVjnn., Fob, 311 Some
time yestoulay morning befoie this
little village woke up a tingedy took
place In the house of Postmaster AV.
H. Chapln. Jits. Ilattle Chapln, wife
of the postmaster, and Chailes II.
Mead, an unmarried man, -were killed.
by the snmo levolvcr. It was undoubt
edly a case of muider and suicide, but
which one dd the shooting It not
known. Citcutnstances k to hhow that
It was tho woman. Postmaster Chapln
was out of town that night, and the
only other pel tons In the house weie u
servant and 10-yoar-old llany Chapln,
the dead woman's ton, who found the
bodies. From their condition It Is sup
posed that life had been extinct for
moie than an hour when they weie
Mrs. Chapln was about 33 yeats old,
and a rather handsome woman. Not
far away stands the house occupied
by the family of the Rev. II. P. Mead,
now of Scotland, Conn,, who used to
have a chuicli heie. When he went
to Scotltuul to yieach he left his wife
and family here because of tho supe
rior educational advantages of this
place. The oldest son, Charles, got
employment as a tiavellnu salesman
for the King- Paper company, of SpiiiiK
fleld, and when not on the load, spent
his time at home. He and Mis. Chapln
hae Known each other for many years,
but It Is only or late that their ac
quaintance has been such as to arouse
any comment, and that was only the
itossli) natural to a village of this size.
He was 23 jeaia old.
No talk of young Mead's attentions
to Mis. Chapln had eei leached her
husband. He ,1s away fiom home
much In addition to being postmastei,
he has the management of the fish
hatcheries of Hemy A Bishop at Shef
field, Mass, and dining tho past few
months has spent half of. his time theie.
Often he goes to Shellleld on the morn
ing tiain and returns on the following
morning. He left heie for Shellleld yes
teiday morning, telling Mis. Chapln
that ho would leturn toda Mead had
been in town seveinl das, and had
been heen talking with Mrs. Chanin on
the stieet, though not In such a. man
ner as to cause any special iematk un
til the double killing became known.
Then several persons lemembered hav
ing seen them talking together.
The boy sleepU upstairs. On the
ground lloor are tho parlor, tho back
pallor, the dining loom, a bedroom In
which Mis. Chapln sometimes slept,
and the kitchen and back looms. "When
Hairy got up In the morning he called
to his mother and got no answer. It
was aftei 7 o'clock, an hour at which
Mis. Chapln usually aiose. Going Into
the upstaiis bedioom sometimes used
by his mother, the boy saw that she
was not theie, so ho ran downstairs
and pounded on the door of the' sleep
ing loom theie.
A GHASTLY FIND.
Getting no answer, he opened the
door and looked In, saw that the bed,
w hlch was empty, had been slept In,
and supposed that his mother was al
leady up and about the house. Cross
ing the hall, he went to the dining
room. He cot half way Into the loom
bofoie his Intelligence took In the
meaning of what he saw, the bodies of
a man and a woman on the lloor, daik
stains on the caipet near where the
heads lay, and a levoher lying between
the two forms. He cried out to his
mother, then turned and ran out into
the stieet, ciying. The Hist person ho
met was Station Agent Adams, who
was on his way to open the station and
get the Hie going. In a few wotds the
boy told what he had seen.
"Run for the doctor Us fast as you
can," commanded Mr. Adams. "Tell
him to come stialght to the house. 111
Setting out at a hot pace, Mr. Ad
ams quickly reached the house, and
made his way to the dining loom.
Theie on the floor ho saw the two
bodies. The face of the woman was
turned tow aid him, and he Instantly
lecognlzed Mrs. Chapln. That of the
man was tinned away. Mr. Adams
bent over to look at it and almost
fainted from the shock of surprise
added to the honor of the scene. He
was looking, not at Postmaster Chapln,
whoso face he had expected to see, but
at that of Chailes Mead. Befoie he
had recoveied himself, Dt. Fi artels K.
Skiff had reached the house and was
making an examination of the bodies.
The bodies weio waim, and the doctor
thought that they had been dead an
hour or two.
Meantime Hairy Chapln, who had
learned who tho dead man was, was
ciying for his father. This lecalled Mr.
Cliapin to the minds of those of his
friends who had gatheied at the house
They asked the boy when he expected
his father back.
"I heard him tell mamma he'd be
back this morning," he answered.
The tialn was then pulling In, and
two of the men huirled down to the
train to meet him. Hxplainlng at first
that his wife had met with a terilblo
accident, they came to the tiuth little
by little during the walk to the house,
nnd when Mr. Chapln leached his door
he knew that his wife had been shot
and killed, but the worst of It he did
not know until he came to the loom,
which he Insisted on enteilng at once.
POSITION OF THE BODIES.
Coroner Higglns found everj thing on
the scene of the tiagedy exactly as It
was when the bodies were discovered.
They lay a few feet apart and almost at
right angles to each other. Tho man
lay almost face down, He was entirely
dressed except for his overcoat and hat,
which lay on a chair near by. Theie
was a hole in his light temple and
another In the left side of Ids head,
showing where the bullet had entered
and gone through the head. Some
specks of powder about the wound on
tho light temple sh'owed that the bullet
had struck on that side, and also that
the muzzle of the weapon was near his
head when the shot was flred. Mis.
Chupln lay on her back, her head was
bowed toward Mead, as If she had
fallen forwaul and rolled over. The
bullet that killed her had enteied at
the rltih't temple also, and lemalned in
the head. The edeps of the wound
were much blackened, and this is one
of the indications that it was she who
shot the man and then herself. She was
in her nightgown, with a loose wrapper
thrown over it. It is probable that
death came to both almost instan
eously. Between them lay tho revolver, a 3S-
callbre weapon, Two chambers wer.1
empty. There had beon no waste of
fehots. I.'ach bullet had gone sti night
to tho mn-ik nnd hnd done tho woik
(Illicitly, The fact of the revolver being
in the house Is another strong proof
that tho woman ilred the shots, as It
is the w capon which is usualy kept In
tho Post Olllce. Yesteidny Mrs. Chapln
called at the office and asked for If.
"My husband Is going to bo nwny to
night," she said, "and I feel safer with
some sort of a weapon In tho house.
l'p heatd that theve weie buighus
As Mrs. Chapln had spent many
nights In the house without the pio
teetlon of her husband and without any
weapon, tho Infeionce Is that she wanted
tho levolvcr for some particular pur
pose, pel haps for tho veiy use to which
It was put.
After the examination Coroner Illg
gins and Medical i:amlner Skiff united
In the opinion that Mrs Chapln had for
dome unknown cause shot Mead nnd
then killed huscif sometime between 3
nnd 0 a. m. Theie was no sign of a
Btiugglr In the loom, so that the deed
must have been done quickly.
As to motive, It Is generally believed
In the village now that lelatlons, hlth
cito unsuspected, existed between
Mead and His. Chipln; that ho visited
her last night j nnd that just as he was
leaving In the morning she shot him,
In puisuanco of a resolve which she had
pievlnusly made. Jealously may have
been the cause. Vague rumois uie

RIFLES FOR PATRIOTS.
Gen. Roloff Takes 8,003 of Them to
Cuba Biggest Expedition That Has
Been Sent to the Island.
New York. Feb. 21. The Sun says
that the sudden disappearance of Gen
eta! Carlos Rolofl, secretary of war
of the Cuban lepubllc, whoso ball was
forfeited at Baltimore, has given llse
to the leport yesterday that another
expedition had staited to Cuba under
Although the greatest seciecy is
maintained In tho ofllces of tho Junta
about the nffali, tho fact that Geneial
Roloff is now off to Cuba was con
flimed yesteulav bv some prominent
Cubans. How he slipped away Is a
mutter which the Spanish consulate Is
tiylng to discover through the detec
tives at Its sei vices.
The expedition Is, In fact, the most
Important that has eer gone to Cuba,
and If it lands safely there It will be a
tieinendous blow to the cause of Spain.
It cairles 8,000 lilies, thiee cannons, two
repeating guns of an improved make,
firing 'one bundled hot a minute,
with the advantage that the firing can
bo stopped at will, and a quantity of
eplosl'es equal to all that had been
sent to Cuba befoie.
All the money collected by the Cuban
delegation here after the death of Ma
ceo has been spent on the expedition,
and moie besides. The geneial cost
was estimated yestoiday at about $300,
000. Among the Cubans heie It is be-
llved that the fate of the revolution
depends In great part on Geneial Ro
loff's success. If he Is capluied by the
Spaniards there Is no doubt that tho
cause of Cuba will suffer considerably.
In the last days of the winter season
the patilots in the field will feel the
need of mnteilals for use in a decisive
campaign dining the lainy season,
which Is so unfavorable to the Span
iaids. But if the expedition lands, It
means 8,000 Cubans moie under aims
and formidable help for Geneial Go
The men w ho go with Roloff, and who
are said to be 100, have been carefully
selected among the Cubans in the Unit
ed States. A gieat enthusiasm pie
valls among the Cuban i evolutional y
clubs here about the expedition and the
management of It is highly praised.
Senor Tomns Kstiada Palma, the
Cuban delegate heie, when seen yes
terday In refeience to tho repoit that
Geneial Roloff, the Cuban minister of
war, had already left for the island
said that he could not conflim or deny
"Geneial Roloff," he added, "took
leave of me about a week ago, saying
that the mission which brought him to
the United States was fulfilled and he
must boon leturn to Cuba and take his
place In the cabinet. This Is all I
know about the geneial."
LAST DAYS OF CONGRESS.
An Immense Amount of Business to be
Disposed Of During the
"Washington, Teb. 21. Only nine moie
woiklng days lemaln In the Flfty
fouith congiess and the condition of
the appi epilation bills will compel the
senate to make up for the time lost
in a futile eftoit to latlfy the aibltia
tlon tieaty, which now appears to have
been shelved. The pending Sunday
civil and the naval bill will piobably
cause some debate. The president has
so far approved the legislative, the
consular and diplomatic, tho mllltaiy
academy and the pension bills. The
army bill Is in confeience and the ngii
cultuial bill was tiRieed to In confei
ence jesteiday. The Indian bill is now
In tho senate and will piobably not be
passed befoie tomonow night. The
DJstiict of Columbia bill Is on the
calendni and w 111 be called up as soon
as the Indian bill Is out of the way.
This bill may lead to pi ott acted de
bate ow Ing to a light bctw een contend
ing electt ic light companies.
The appt epilation committee of the
senate Is still considering the postof
iice, tho sundry civil and the fortifica
tion bill, all of which will be ropoited
in two or tlnee days. Of tho lemalnlng
appioprlatlon measuies, the naval and
the general dellclency bill are still. In
The house also will occupy tho re
mainder of the time in a dealing up of
necessary business. Thiee houis de
bate on tho Pacific railioads paragraph
of the general dellclency appioprlatlon
bill will take place on Monday In com
mittee of the whole and then probably
another day will be spent In going over
the measuie in open house. The pass
age of bills under suspension of tho
mles comes In older during the closing
days of tjie session, but the house lead
ers seem detei mined to shut down up
on all measures asking fuither appio
pilation of money.

Under tho present law deferring tho
payment of one-halt the bonus for a

fact that the committees of the two
