A SCORNED WOMAN'S REVENGE
George B. King Fatally Shot In the Cotv
ridor of the City Hall
The Chief Deputy of the City Engineer's Office
the Victim of Teresa Kerr, Who Was Mad-'
dened at Her Lover's Desertion
George Bloom King, the chief deputy in
the city engineer's office, was shot inertly
before 7 o'cioeU last evening by Teresa Kerr,
a woman with whom he had formerly lived.
King had tried to break oft' his relations
with the woman, but she resisted hi* at
tempt to dcsicrt her, and fired a bullet into
his vitals, causing what is thought will
prove a fatal wound. The shooting occurred
on the first landing of the stairway of the
city hall, just after King had left his office
after completing his'work. The woman had
waited ahout the building a good portion
of the day in the desire to see King. It is
the old story of a man's becoming entangled
with a desperate woman, who had formerly
been leading a life of shame.
The acquaintance of King and the woman
dates back a.year or more. Where he be
came acquainted with her is not known. It
was probably while she was an inmate of
one of the houses of ill-fame in tliiin city.
Within tho past two years' she had boarded
at resorts on Alameda, New' High and San
Pedro streets. Her last place of residence
as "a woman of the town was in Madame
Van's resort on New High street. King had
met her before she went to that establish
ment, nnd was* known as her friend to the
Inmates. They appeared to lie fond of each
other, and the man was very kind to
Teresa, who was known under the name of
Mabel Bowen. About eight months ago she
went to Seattle. To some she said that her
people resided there and to others she as
serted thht her home was in the east. Teresa
remaiued in Seattle until last August. It
wa6 currently reported that the relations
between herself aud King had been broken
off. King was said to have been instrumental
in sending her away. According to report,
he found himself becoming too seriously
enamored of the woman, and thought the
best remedy was to send her away where
He could not see her. His parents were
said to have learned of his relations with
the woman and had desired him to leave
her and, some said, to marry a respectable
woman. After the woman returned in
August she claimed that King himself had
solicited her to return. In endearing letters
he had protested his- love Tor her, and even
offered to make her his wife. The woman is
said to have returned to Los Angeles ; n
company with another man, but this fact
was kept a secret from King. It is probable,
if such was the case, that she soon severed
her acquaintance with the new man, for
she resumed even more intimate relations
with King than before her departure.
S THE MAN'S INCONSTANCY
They went to board with Mrs. Mary T.
Straube at 276 North Fremont avenue. They
represented themselves to be "Mr. and Mrs.
Kane," nnd both wenf under that name
during their residence at Mrs. Straube's
house. They conducted themselves l well, and
Mrs. Straube says she had no cause for com
plaint against either. They appeared to be
in love, and King was always very atten
tive to the woman. He tooK his breaJrfast
and supper with the family and slept at the
house every night. For a while the couple
appeared quite happy. About the only
cause for complaint which the woman had
was the desire of King to remain out late
at night. She did not like to be neglected
nnd protested against his playing cards'. She
seemed to have no fear that he might he
absent in the company of another woman,
Everything continued smoothly until No
vember 2d, when two men went to the
house to board. Their arrival threw a
damper upon King and he became very reti
cent, and was evidently ill nt ease. He evi
dently feared that they might know who
he was and disclose his> mode of life. He
ceased to take I'visi meals in the house after
the new boarders arrived and would only I
sleep there. Mrs. Straube thought thiscon
duct rather strange, especially in a hus
band to his wife, but nothing was said, as
Teresa did not refer to the occurrence. Mrs.
Straube stntes that she did not observe any
thing out of the way in the woman's actions,
and never knew her to be intoxicated. She
only received company once during her res
idence at tfae Straube house, when a fine
looking woman called, but her name was
The direct cause for King's trying to break
with the Kerr woman is not known, but he
had evidently begun to tire of her and
sought an early opportunity of severing
their relations. Mrs. Straube had no inti
mation that anything was wrong with the
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 31, 189tf
woman until the first part of the week,
when the board, whid.i had always been
paid in advance, was allowed to run behind.
Teresa rinpeargd to be restless and worried
about sdniething nnd had little if any appe
tite. Finally on Wednesday Mrs. Straube
broached the subject of money to the wo
man and learned that the separation had
occurred. Teresa replied to Mrs. Straube's
request for money by saying that she had
none. Mrs. Straube suggested that she
should get it from Kane, and llien Teresa
burst' into tears and said that he had left
her last Monday and she was entirely desti
tute. From that moment the woman gave
way to her grief, and though urged many
times, could not be prevailed upon to take
any nourishment. She passed the nights
pacing her room and seenied to be in tbe
depths of misery. Mrs. Straube said that
it was not the question of lack of funds
which worried the woman, but the fact that.
she had been deserted by the man she loved.
Tt.te Kerr woman continued in this state
until Thursday, and, refusing to be com
forted, and making nu effort to help herself
or to see King. She apparently, however,
made up her mind' to leave the city, for on
Thursday she wrote a farewell letter to
King, in which she expressed great love for
him and said she intended to leave for San
Francisco. At the request of Teresa, Mrs.
Straube directed the letter, as Teresa ex
plained that if King saw his mistress'liiand
writing he might not wish io open the en
THE WOMAN'S GRIEF
Mrs. Straube began to think that the wo
man was in v serious state of mind and while
she did not anticipate at that time that her
misery would lead her to attempt any per
sonal violence upon King, she felt that the
man ought to do something for the woman.
She went to the office of the city engineer
and inquired for King. She says that her
entry caused something of a consternation
and for awhile she was denied admittance
to King. Finally she was received by tbe,
latter and made known to him her desire
for the $11 which he owed her for the
week's board. Mrs. Straube also repeated
a message which the Kerr woman had in
trusted to her. This message evidently a-sked
for an appointment of some sort, for King
told Mrs. Straube to tell Teresa she need
not come to his office, for he would not re
ceive her, and he did not desire to see her
at all. He told Mrs. Straube to send to'the
office at noon of ihe following day, which
was yesterday, and her money would be
waiting for her.
When King's message was repeated to
the- Kerr woman the most marked change
came over her. She ceased weeping and
appeared to suddenly make up her mind to
some course of action. "Well," she re
marked, "if he won't see me at the office,
1 know where he will see me." This was all
she said in answer to the message, and it is
probi-ble t'aat she made up her mind at that
time to kill King if he continued in his
neglect. The woman ate nothing that day,
but Mrs. Straube observed that she had
ceased crying and appeared self-reliant.
TURNED TO VENGEANCE
Late that afternoon she called at the
house of Madame Van, but made no refer
ence to any trouble she had had with King.
Teresa appeared very depressed, and when
asked by Madame Van to return to board,
replied she would, but that she was intend
ing to go to San FrancitJco. Whether she
took anyone into her confidence is not
kn own. About 11 o'clock yesterday morning
the woman left the house, after taking a
small amount of broth. She went to the
city hall and waited around the corridor in
search of King. She made no effort to
enter the office, but was content to wait
until tine man came out. King did not appear
and she went back to Mrs. Straube's about
1:30 in the afternoon, where she took a small
cup of tea, and later went away. She evi
dently returned once more to the city ball
to wait, for she was observed again by many
people connected with tbei building.
Benny, the 13-year-old son of Mrs. Straube,
had gone to the office of King after the
money, but had been told to return for it
about 4 o'clock. Benny went to the build
ing about that time and saw the Kerr wo
man. She asked him lo go to the city en
gineer's office and inquire for King. The
man was not in, and when Benny asked for
the money he was told that it had been
sent to his mother earlier in the afternoon.
Such had been the case, for a friend of King's
had'called at his former boarding place and
given Mrs. Straube $10. saying that King
would give her the balance the next day.
The friend spoke about arranging a meet
ing between King and the Kerr woman, to
whom he referred as "Mrs. Kane," but Mrs.
Straube sard that she would not be willing
for such a meeting to be held at her house!
She knew how desperate and miserable the
woman was and feared that a disturbance
of some sort would result if King called.
THE FATAL SHOT
In the meanwhile the woman had been
keeping wtttch in the city hall building,
pacing the corridors, but nearly always re
maining at the foot of the main stairway
or c10n.4 to the door of the engineer's office,
which is on the second floor. Shortly after
5 o'clock she wandered away, for about that
time King entered the buildtng from attend
ing a meeting of the Klks society and went
to his office to complete some work. Some
time after 8 o'clock Hickman, the colored
janitor of the building, was asked by the
woman if any one was in the city engineer's
office. He replied that there was. She said
.nothing, but waited, and a few minutes later
the woman repeated her inquiry. Hickman
said he would go to the office and see. She
replied that she did not \«ish to put him
to that trouble. He walked into the office
again, though in search for some keys, and
when he came out he noticed that the wo
man had walked down the corridor on the
opposite side of the building. H«l thought
nothing more of the matter, and went about
It lacked a few minutes to 7 o'clock when
King left his office and started down stairs.
There were no eye-witnesses of the shooting]
but the woman had walked to the landing
and stood leaning against a post, waiting for
King to approach., Some words- may have
passed between them, but they were not
heard by any other people in the building.
The woman sfepped close to King, who is a
very tall man, and, pointing a revolver at
his stomach, fired one shot. It entered about
two inches below the navel and penetrated
the smaller intestines.
Hickman, Special Officer W. Welle and I
Norton heard the shot and the two first
rushed to the landing and there perceived
the woman with her left arm around King
while in the other she held the smoking
revolver. King was slowly sinking to the
floor. When the men rushed to her side
the woman, according to the statement of I
Hickman, tried to hide the weapon under!
One of the men; caught hold of her and
took the revolver away. "Oh, let' me have
it. Let me have it," she cried, hysterically.
"I wanted tb kill myself; I wish it had been
me first. If he had not treated me so mean
it would not have happened."
Wells gave the woman into- the custody of
some clerks in the street superintendent's
office while he went to the aid of the wound
ed map. The police were notified and King
was removed to the receiving hospital, while
the woman was taken tp the station and
given into the care of Matron Gray.
A DESPERATE WOUND
•After Dr. Hagan had examined the wound
he told King that he would, in all probabil
ity die from the injury. The young man
made an ante-mortem statement, but at his
request its' contents were not divulged. An
sttempt was made by the officers to inter
view the woman, but she was in such a ter
rible state of hysterics that nothing could
be learned from her. She moaned and cried
and talked incoherently about George, say
ing, "He must not die, he must not die."'
The injured man. was removed shortly
after 9 oclock to the California hospital,
where Or. Hagan, assisted by Drs. E. A.
Bryant, Merritt, Hitt and W. W. Hitch
cock, opirated upon him. The bullet, which
was tired from a 32-caliber Smith & WcMOU,
penetrated some of the small intestines and,
ranging downward, had lodged in the thigh.
In a space of ten inches no less than eight
different holes had beat) made in the in
testines. This lection was cut out and
drawn together with i "Murphy button."
There were lour or five other holes in the
intestines, but these were sewed up. Noat

THE ROSE TOURNAMENT
SOME NECESSARY POINTERS FOR
Bill-Posting Ordinance to Be Tested.
Electric Road Bonds Rise—Mt.
Lowe Road May Be Absorbed
PASADKXA, Dec. 30.—(Office of The
Herald, 16 West Colorado street; telephone
red 675.) City official- request that on
Tournament day all citizens scatter them
selves out over the line of march and not
clog the thoroughfares in the center of town.
This jamming of the people on the corners
of Fair Oaks und Raymond defeats its own
object by obstructing the view of the very
people who crowd. It mars the beauty of
the parade and absolutely prevents line ma
neuvers of the Amtrieus club and the
wheelmen. The procession needs and should
be given the entire street from curb to
curb. There will be special mounted officers
who will endeavor to keep the crowds back,
out it is the duty of every citizen to help in
this by taking himself and as many others
as possible to a more advantageous point of
view further out of the city. No more bean*
tiful spots could be selected for observation
than on the rise of Colorado street at either
end of town; on the Orange Grove hill or
the Marengo hill. These points will give an
opportunity to tee the parade for a long
distance each way, be-ide the front view.
Another request is that vehicles from side
streets along the line of march should not
intrude in the parade out of place, but re
main, until the procession is past and fall in
BILL POSTING TKST
A test case on the bill posting ordinance
was decided by Judge Rossiter today. The
Sf\s charged for a bill posting license is
practically prohibitory, and only the regular
bill poster and the Merchants' Bill Posting
and Distributing company can afford a li
cense. Mr. Dalton was arrested for distrib
uting patent medicine advertising matter.
The testimony at the trial a few weeks ago
showed that Mr. Dalton, although a patent
medicine man, had hired himself to the Mer
chants Bill Posting company for $2 a day,
and that he put up in three days two thou
sand of his own bills, for which he agreed
to pay the company $3 a thousand. The
court held that the local company has the
right to employ agents to post bills and that
it would not be right to sell the company a
license and then convict them or their
agents for working under it.
The Twilight club held a banquet at the
Hotel Green last night, at which the "Pres
ent Political Condition of China" was dis
cussed by the Rev. B. C. Henry, D. D., of
China, and a fine stereopticon exhibition of
scenes among the Pueblo Indians was given
by A. C. Vroman. President Merwin in
troduced Dr. Henry, who said that the pres
ent emperor of China was not an insignifi
cant youth, as many supposed* He has an
active mind and a great desire to benefit his
empire. His remarkable edict to reform
Clnina, recognize Christianity, remove cor
rupt officials, etc., frighetned the conserva
tives, who have succeeded in temporarily
sidetracking the emperor. Li Hung Chang
was described as progressive and the em
press dowager as aggressive and executive.
The United States must play a large part in
the enlightenment of China and unite with
Great Britain and other nations to preserve
the open door.
