DROWNED HERSELF IN WESTLAKE
The Fate of British Consul Mor
While Deranged from Illness She
Commits the Fatal Act.
She Waa Seen Struggling In the Water
bnt All Attempts to Rescue Her
Proved Futile—Detail* of
the Sad Affair.
Miss Mary F. Mortimer, aged 45yeara,
sister of Britißh Vice-Consul C. White
Mortimer, ended her existence last night
by throwing herself into the water at
Miss Mbrtimer waa seen about 7:30
struggling in the water by apasaer-bj,
who gave the alarm. Charlea Van Valk
enberg of 1631 Ingraham street, accom
panied by a friend, jumped into a life
boat and pulled out to the drowning
woman. She had drifted out to about
100 feet from the chore, and as they
pushed off their boat she gave a atifled
cry and threw up her hands. When the
rescuers reached her body life waß ap
parently extinct. Aa quickly as possi
ble, however, her body was taken to the
boat honse, where J. McKiliip, who has
the contract for letting out the boats, in
company with other sympathisers, did
everything in his power to resuscitate
the lifeless remains. Dr. Lasher ar
rived soon afterwards, but there had
been no hope from the first, and there
was nothing to be done except crosß the
dead woman's hands upon the lifeless
breast and keep away tho curious crowd.
Just at this time ex-Mayor Hazard
telephoned out to McKiliip that he had
reaaon to believe tha a woman who was
deranged was wandering about the park,
and McKiliip waa requeated to look
after her. Mr. Hazard was told that
tbe body of a woman bad been already
recovered and was awaiting identifica
tion. On bearing thia Mr. Hazard tele
phoned that be would come out to claim
tbe body. Shortly afterwards he ar
rived in company witb Mr. Mortimer.
*A man went forward with a lantern,
but there waa no need for a light; with
a groan Mr. Mortimer buried bia face in
his hands, and leaning on the shoulder
of his old friend, Mr. Hazard, he stag
gered out of the staring crowd, and sup
ported by bis friend gave way to hia
Mr. Hazard gave the following facts to
the Herald reporter:
Miaa Mortimer bad been suffering con
siderably of late, and for the laat few
days had been slightly out of her mind.
She lived with her mother, Mra. Morti
mer, on Grand avenue, and was in the
habit of driving every day in Weattake
park with her mother.
Several times lately on returning
from the drive she had remarkee
that she was afraid of the water, and
tbe drives had been discontinued. Yea-
terday afternoon Mrs. Mortimer went
ont by herself, and on returning about
aix o'clock waa told by the maid that
Miss Mortimer waa upstairs. She waa
not to be found however, and her
mother, becoming nervoua, informed
Mr. Hazard who Uvea close by. Know
ing what Miaa Mortimer had said itbou,t
the water in the park tbe ex mayor tel
ephoned to the park., as baa already been
stated, the meaaage arriving too late to
"JeTiy"*"* mnati m m.Hnn r\f #Vm f- a.
The body was conveyed to Mrs. Mor
timer's house by Chase & Co., where it
will remain to await the inquest.
If the lights at the far end ot the water
had been lit the woman'a life might
have been saved, for there were several
boat loada of people on the lake at the
time; the plsca, however, was m dark
A shocking feature of the affair waa
the behavior of two young women and a
man who, taking seats directly in front
of the body, cracked jokes and laughed
among themselves, while Mr. Mortimer
was giving way to his grief. It ia need
less to say they were promptly repri

JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN.
Depnty Sheriff Writy Off to Oakland on
Deputy Sheriff J. C. Wray leaves for
Ventura today. He takes with him his
new rifle, so the other deputy sheriffs
Johnny has a reputation as a hunter
in and around Ventura. A few days ago
he received a parcel by express which
evidently contained a rifle, and Wray
saw himself the owner of a brand new
gun. When opened there was certainly
a gun there, but it must have been
pae<s in the days of Noah. It had no
lock, and was innbeent of breech. In
shape it was a cross between a blunder
bnsa breed and a fifteenth century how
Johnny bore the blow very well, but
it is unlikely he will take hie new rifle
to Ventura witb him today.
