Clivelasd, 0,, May 23. —E. E. Tow

dressed man, blew out big brain with a
revolver at the Hollenden this evening.
The story back of it is, undoubtedly, a
startling one, hot enveloped in mystery.
Today a fine-looking woman went to the
Kennard house, and after engaging a
room, sent for an attorney. Col. J. O.
Winsbip responded. She told him sht
was Mrs. F. M. Allen of San Francis: i,
a widow, and that she wae be ng jmreued
by Towner, who wanted to marry iier,

peared at the hotel while the lawyer and
| the woman were in consultation, and as
I Mm. Allen was evidently ill, Winsbip
i spirited her out of the house and sent
| her to the Huron street hospital. -
Towner departed after asking for Mrp.
| Brown, and finally picking out Mrs. Al
len's name on the register as that of tiie
person he was seeking. He then re
moved his effects from the living house
< where he and Mrs. Allen had been
j stopping, and after engaging a room at
tbe Hollenden. shot himself. He left a
| note to the coroner saying he died by
i bis own hand and that Mrs. Brown
wonld pay his funeral expenses. He
signed himself as T. E. Townsend. On
the register of the Hoil-nden he wrote
his place of residence as Denver.
Mrs. Allen refu-ed to be interviewed
and the Only means of identifying him
is the woman's declaration to the attor
ney that his name is Towner and that
he lias a brother at Kingfisher, Okla
homa. Towner and Mrs Allen traveled
together from the east to Cleveland.

Washington, May 23 —Therehas been
apme speculation in naval circles as to
the purpose of Secretary Herbert In
bringing the San Francisco around from
the Pacific and making ber the flagship

the beautiful white cruiser and wished
ber to take the position of flagship of
the North Atlantic squadron (for which
she is admirably fitted so far as interior
accommodations are concerned) in order
that in this conspicuous place she
might present evidence, not only to vis
iting foreigners but to the people of the
east, of the excellent naval construction
that is possible on the Pacific coast.
