MRS. AMADON FREE.
After Five Years at San
HISTORY OF THE" MURDBR.
How Her Uiisnspeetiiifr Husband
Was Killed by Her
News reached this city yesterday that
Mrs. Henry Amadou, who was Beut to
Ban Quentin in 1883, tor complicity in
the murder of her husband, had beeu
released on Wednesday last. It will he
remembered by meat of tbe citi/.eue that
the murder and the subsequent arrest
and trial of the perpetrators created
considerable sensation at that time, and
the details of the crime are still fresh in
their memory. The circumstances of
the murder of Henry Amadon, aud the
subsequent trial of John Foster and
Mrs. Amadon and her sister, Mrs.
Oreenleaf, were about as follows: One
morning iv September, 188."?, between 3
aud 4 o'clock, the people in the neigh
borhood of Naud's warehouse und
Chavez street were startled by several
pistol shots. Shortly afterwards the
body of Henry Amadou was fouDd lying
a short distance from his home, iv that
vietnity, but there was nothing to indi
cate who the guilty party or parties
were. An examination of the bjdy
showed that Henry Amadou bad been
shot through the heart, and had died
without a struggle. The Coroner took
possession of tbe body nud held an la—
quest, but the identity of the murderer
remained a mystery. Amadon was a
very popular young man, formerly
a member of E.ig ne Company No.
2, and at the time >.t hia death was an
engineer in the employment of the
Southern Pacific Railroad Company.
This fact together with the mystertou»
ness of tbe affair caused T. J. Cuddy,
who was at that time Chief of Police, to
take the affair into his own handa to
unravel tbe mystery if he could. A
visit waa paid to Mrs. Amadon, but she
disclaimed any knowledge of the shoot
ing as also did her sister, Mrs. Green
leaf, who was living with her. Chief
Cuddy then started out on the search
for information and it was due to bis
clever-following up of the clues which
were found that the perpetrators of the
murder were discovered and afterward
sent to prison.
Although the young husband was blind
to the fact, that Mrs. Amadon posscsied
for a lover one John Foster, who was also
a member of Engine No. 2, aud also in
the employ of tbe railroad. From a
brakeman who had returne 1 from a trip
about 3 o'clock tbat morning, it was
learned that Foster bad been seen
walking in tbat neighborhood with
with what was supposed to
be two young men. Substqnent
developments disclosed the fact that
these two supposed young men were
Mrs. Amadon and her sister. Ou the
eveniug before the murder Mrs. Amadon
and her sister hail dressed themselves iv
men's clothing and bad visile! the Club
Theater, nnd after carousing about town
bad gone down to meet Foster,
who arrived about 2:30 o'clock from a
trio. Henry Amadon was off on a trip
ajsM was not expected borne, so the
ycung wife thought it was perfectly safe
to meet her lover and take him home
with her. Tbey met Foster, and it was
while walking with him that they were
seen by tbe brakeman who had stepped
■t a trough to wash his face. Shortly
afterward they met a man named Smith,
a lover of Mrs. Greenleaf, who was thou
a widow, and the four walked up tho
railroad track toward tbe Amadon resi
dence. They turned into Chavez street
and stood talking under a tree. While
tbey were talking the uususpectiug bus- |
band, who bad been off on a special
train and returned earlier
than was expected, came walking
towards hid home with his dinner bucket
in bis hand. He saw tho four standing
under the tree, nud recognizing Smith
said "Hello. Billy," or something simi
lar. He did not recognize the others of
the party but turned and walked toward
the party intent on enjoying a few mo
ments chat. As be neared tbe party
Foster steeped back, drew his revolver
and Bred it at Amadou, one of tbe balls
striking tbe unfortunate man in tbe
heart. The two women then ran to the
house and the two men came up town,
where they separated. As stated Mrs,
Amadon and her sister pretended to
know nothing of tbe affair and were
just as cool as if nothing bad happened
when questioned by Chief Cuddy.
Foster, after separating from Smith, 1
went to a shoe shop and had his shoes '
resoled because they were broken and *
he thought there would be some danger t
feof being discovered througn there. He 1
then went to the engine house and sat 1
m_t some timo talking to tho other mem- 2
BBs of the company. After a while he c

many flowers as tokens of their regard.
There wai a large turnout, and among

two babies. The police at this time
suspeoted her, and were watching her,
very closely. She wrote a long letter to
his relatives in the East and South, in
which she expatiated on tbe mvatory
surrounding his death, and accompany
ing the letter she sent a daily paper con
taining an account of the inquest. It
