TRIED FIVE TIES
TO KILL HIMSELF
PRINTER PROVES TO HAVE A
STRANGE CASE AT RIVERSIDE
Like the Wandering Jew, He Planned
Hit Death Weeks in Advance,
Writing a Letter and Poem
to the Coroner
Like the proverbial cat with nine
lives, D. C. Andrade, a printer who
went to Riverside recently, tried five
times ' Friday night to kill himself and
Within an hour and r half he took
four doses of morphine, and finding
that the drug affected him not, put a
tube from a gaa Jet in his mouth,
tovered his face with a pillow and lay
down to die.
Yesterday' morning the landlady In
the rooming house where Andrade was
staying discovered his unconscious
body, with the gas Jot tube In his
mouth and the pillow over his face.
She notified the coroner and Andrado
was taken . to the county hospital of
Riverside, where he soon regained con
Andrade had evidently contemplated
suicide for several weeks, as ho had

matic picture of a strange death. 1 This
verse was entitled "The Dying Stolc'3
Wrote Letter to Coroner
After retiring to his room Friday,
night and just before he took the first
dose of morphine Andrade wrote a let
ter to. the coroner of Riverside.. This
was as follows: '
■"Dear Sir— lt Is my desire that my
body be disposed of in the cheapest and
simplest way possible and without re
;',"I request that no effort bo made to
find or. notify my relatives. I leave
herewith $100. ' Such amount ,as may
be' left over from my funeral expenses,
together with other effects, may be
used for any good purpose to which
you see'flt.lo apply it."-', ;V -.-•. -•
...On the back of the letter was writ
ten: "I, alii neither drunk nor crazy,
simply weary of life."
:''Andrade's case is one of the most
remarkable of its kind on. record. He
tried to kill himself several months ago
In Denver in a similar jjfinner as In
Riverside. It appears, say the phy-
Ficians who have been attending, him,
that he bears a charmed life.
Record of Doses Taken

wandering about the country. He is

'few weeks ago, entitled "The Dying

COLORADO KILLING LEADS TO
, WILD SCENES
Deputy Sheriff Shoots Down Man in
Cold Blood, and Is With Diffi.
. cutty Rescued From
By Associated fresn.
TRINIDAD, Colo., April S.— The kill
ing 1 of John H. Fox by Deputy Sheriff
Joseph Johnson and an attempt t-t
lynching, frustrated by Sheriff Dick
Davis and posse; a race between the
sheriff, his posse and his prisoner for
a specjal train, and an angry and ex
cited mob of 2000 people bent on venge
ance, were the wild scenes enacted In
Trinidad this afternoon.
The assassination of Fox was tho
most., cold-blooded murder ever com
mitted in Las Animas county. Fox
was standing at a desk in the lobby
of the postofflee reading a newspaper
with his back to the door. Johnson
entered, pistol in hand and, without
the least warning, sneaked .up behind
Fox and fired. Fox fell backwards
dead and Johnson, coolly walking from
the postofflce, started toward the coun
ty Jail, when he was arrested by an
other deputy sheriff and placed in the
.The news spread like wildfire and
soon a mob of. 1000 people made for the
Jail.' Sheriff Davis halted them and
said: '" V
"As sheriff I am sworn to protect my
prisoners. I will kill the first man who
i attempts, to, come up those steps. If
you get Johnson ' it will be over my
dead body." :i '-'\ ■'
This had the effect of checking the
mob,' who, lacked a leader. Some time
later Johnson, surrounded by deputies,
started from the Jail on a dead run for
the waiting train, three blocks away.
This news reached .the mob, who
started pell-mell after the posse, grow
ing in numbers cn < route until finally
2500 people had gathered. The sheriff
succeeded !n getting 'his prisoner on
board, but when the train started the
mob was less than twenty yards away.
After the train had run about 300
yards a coupling broke. When the
mob saw the engine leaving the ca
boose rushed forward again, yelling
like mad and paying no attention to
the command of the posse to halt,
when the engine was again coupled
and made a successful dash.
Before being placed - on the train
Johnson was asked by a representative
of the Associated press for a state
ment. He said: :1: 1 killed Fox be
cause I was mad. • He prevented me
from going after Shoblo because he
said I would aid him to escape. We had
some words this , morning, but I will
not tell any more," ,

SINGAPORE, . Straits Settlement,
April B.— The Russian Baltic squadron
passed here at 2:30 o'clock this after
The forty-seven ships, steaming
slowly at eight knots ah hour, four
alireaat, presented £ striking spectacle.
The vessels, however, bori. evidence of
the effects of their sea voyuge and at
the water line showed seaweed a foot
The squadron was led by a large
cruiser, followed by three converted
former Hamburg-American line ves
sels. Then came the cruisers, colliers,
battleships, etc. The colliers were
mostly In the center of the fleet. The
decks of the warships were coal laden
while the colliers and the former Ham
burg-American liners were ' light of
The fleet passed seven miles out and
consisted of seven battleships, eight
cruisers, eight torpedo boat destroyers,
three volunteer fleet vessels, sixteen
colliers, one salvage ship, one hospital
ship and three Hamburg-American
The fleet did not stop to receive dis
patches or to consult the consul. Sub
sequently the. consul visited Vice Ad
miral Rojestvensky's ship, talking to
him from a launch. He did not board
the vessel, but was cheered heartily
on leaving the side of the ship. The
consul gave the fleet the first news of
the fall of Mukden. | ■■ <y

the whole fleet to puss n given point. It
was very evident that the ships' hulls

streamed from them and the vessels
seemed unfit for fast maneuvering.
As against this fleet it Is believed that
Vice Admiral Togo has four first-class

destroyers and a number of torpedo
THINK TOGO OUTWITTED
Russians Credit Rojestvensky for
Having Evaded Him
ST. PETERSBURG, April 9, 2:30 a.
m.— There . was great rejoicing last
night at the Admiralty, Yacht and
other naval clubs over Vice Admiral
Rojestvensky having successfully
navigated the gateway of the China
sea without encountering the Japanese.
The credit for the strategy by which
the feat was accomplished, as the As
sociated Press learns, ', belongs solely to
Vice Admiral Rojestvensky, who accu
rately judged that, as the Malay
straits is the most practicable and di
rect route, the Japanese^would calcu
late that he would not da.-c to force a
The • admiralty points out the great
importance and the advantage to be
gained by pushing on with all possible
speed and meeting Vice Admiral Togo's
heavy ships before he can effect a
complete concentration of his scattered
cruisers, scouts and torpedo boats. The
belief of the admiralty is that Togo is
waiting near the island of Formosa,'
ISOO miles northward of Singapore.
At ' the rate the Russian squadron
gleamed from Madagascar, which aver
aged eight knots an hour, the greatest
naval battle since Nelson's victory at
Trafalgar should occur in about ten
The admiralty realizes that Rojest
vensky faces great odds, owing to the
Immense superiority of the Japanese
In cruisers and torpedo boats, and re
liance In his success Is based upon
seven battleships, with which he can
oppose Togo's four.
It ia thought unlikely that the
Vladivostok squadron will attempt a
juncture with the Baltic fleet, though
it is quite possible it may make a di
version, undeterred by the fate of the
Rossla at the time of the egress' of the
Port Arthur fleet last August.

MINISTERS MAKE COMPLAINT
TO SECRETARY TAFT -
DECLARE TRADE IS HAMPERED
Central American Representatives Say
That All the Traffic It Given to
One or Two Steamship
By Antedated Pre««,
WASHINGTON, April S.-Sccretary
Taft today gave a hearing to foreign
ministers representing most of the
countries on the west coast of South
and Central America on the question
of trade restrictions resulting from al
leged combinations between the Pana
ma Railroad company and the Pacific
Mull Steamship company.
These ministers have collected data
Intended to show the Injurious effect on
direct trade relations between tins
United States and the west coast of
South America of the existing traffic
arrangements between the Panama
Railroad company and the steamship
They stated that by a^ system of
steamship companies the Panama Rail
road company had made It practically
impossible for any other steamship
lines to engage In the carrying trade
between the west coast and the United
It was also stated that tile railroad
company favored the Pacific Mall and
the. selected j Chilean , line, not only by
an Ingenious system .of through : bills
of lading which were descrlminatlng
against other lines, but as it also con
trolled the terminal docks on the
isthmus and denies the use of these on
even terms to the other lines, competi
tion whs impossible. The immediate
result was that a large proportion of
the exports of valuable raw material
from .the west coast which should go to
the. United States was carried around
Cape Horn to Europe, much of It to be
re-shipped at great expense to America.
. Coffee was a particular sufferer from
this treatment, but nearly alii tropical
and semi-tropical .'products' were' in-,
jurlously affected. . .
Secretary Taft was deeply interested
in the presentation and arranged • that
the ministers should submit to him a
regular memorandum, which he would
In turn submit to the Isthmian com
mission next week. He. desires also to
consult on this subject with Commis
sioner Brlstow, who Is just returning
to Washington from a trip to the Isth
mus and the Pacific coast, made with
the special purpose of looking into this
question of discriminatory rates on the
Panama railroad. Secretary Taft ex
pressed his own .belief that the dis
crimination complained of should be
stopped and his expectation that the
canal commission would deal with the
subject In that spirit, regardless of any
Immediate diminution of railroad rates.

Developments during the last few
months In connection with the estab-'
Ushment of .permanent plans for 'the

believe that such will be the case., . '
It 13 understood that strong pressure
is being brought to bear on the part
of those who have the Interest of, a
free harbor at stake to bring the pres-|
ent agitation squarely before the Inter
state commerce commission, in which
event the alleged attempt by the cor
porations to gain control of the entire
situation, at Sail Pedro will be . sifted
to the bottom.
"It Is now a tight to a finish," said
a prominent member of the Los. An

given special attention to the question
at Isruo, "and all . those who ,would
have, a free harbor must put .their

been carefully laid for a. rich, future

the new harbor • was detailed Jln The
