Her Physician Thinks She Will Bs Able
to Walk About Soon.
Sr. Lot'is, Mo., April 5. Surprising as
It may stem, Mrs. Riley, who was so ter
ribly wounded by her husband, w ho also
committed suicide a short time nzo, has
now good chances of recovering. A
newspaper reporter saw her phy
sician, Dr. T. F. l'rewitt, who,
in answer to inquiries, said: "Four shots
pierced her body, one entered jut below
the left scapula and passed out in front
an inch below the collar bone. Another
struck the outer border of the left 'toiil
der blade, aud passing clear tbroiiizb
the body like the first and marvc!ous:v
near the heart, came out an inch and
a half to the right and just below the
nipple. A bullet struck the left arm just
above the elbow aud appeared at the
wrist. The last missile entered two inches
to the right of the spine on the r.cht s;!e
and came in contact with theeleveuthanJ
twelfth ribs, and hag not been located a
yet. The other three passed out leaving u''y
wounds. What makes Mrs. liik-v's re
covery so remarkable is the fact that b. ta
lnngs were pierced, aud yet, in s-v.te ol
all, she, to-dav, Is proeressing toward re
covery, although, on account of the deli
cate organs wounded, it would be prema
ture to say her case present no dan
gerous features even nuw.
The wound, all along, have revealed lnjt
little syppcration, which has entireiv d;s-
appfared, with one exception. Mrs. UUoy
is able to s:t up occasionally, and, I think,
wili be strong enough to walk in a week
or U-n davs."

having tol l one lover that she should
never marry during the days of her life,
married another lover at midnight of Su:i
day lt-t iu order to keep w hat she thought
the letter of her promise, has already
reason to wish that she had kept her
promise, m trie spirit also. Clarence Ben

Her parents objected to the match,
and when she insistH upon marrying
him said they would disown her if she

searching for her. Karly this morning
they were awakened by a tapping at their
bed-room window. ( (peril rig it, they aw

door was opened and she fell fainting
on the floor. It appears that when Ben
nett and Miss Baldwin went away
to get married he had with him
$70 of his employer's money. After
they were married by the l'.ev. 1-rarik Hop
kins, in Hempstead, they came to this
city to spend the honeymoon. While the
money lasted the young couple enjoyed
life, but when it was about gone Bennett
slipped away without saying good-by,
leaving his bride penniless". She waited
from Wednesday until lust night for
him to return and then made her way
The young men of Baldwin's, who give
the girl a good name, say that there arc

Prices Improving: at Chicago.
Chicaho, III , April 5. A better feel
ing is prevailing in the Board of Trade
this morning. The small receipts of wheat
aud good buying in pork improved the
prices of all produce. The rumored im
pending failures are ollieially deuied. At
the opening May wheat advanced three
eighths to eighty-three; corn one-half tc

Washington, D. C, April 5. The in
vestigation of the charges brought by
Dr. 1). F. Collins, iu regard to the man
agement of the Jeanuette Arctic Expedi
tion, came up this morning before the
House Committee ou Naval Affairs. Col
lins was present with his attorney,
Judge Curtis. Mrs. Id-Long, En
gineer Melville, Lieutetiaut Danenhower,
aud other survivors were represented by
Judge Aruaux. Artiaux asked to have
admitted or to offer :us proof prelim
inarily: First, that the Court of Inquiry
originated in a letter of Daniel F. Col
lins to W. D. Washburn, of Minnesota,
fully stating all points of com
plaint: S-coiid, that the resolutions
of Congress containing the instructions
to the court were based on that letter and
covered every point iu it. Third, that
Collins had full opportunity to appear
and introduce evidence, and persistently
failed to appear, although he made no
complaint of the Constitutional couduct
of the court. Fourth, he sent questions
to be put to the witnesses, which were
put. They were all appropriate and an
swered, every point duly inquired into,
notwithstanding their default iu appear
ance. Fifth, the Court was couducted
openly and fairly with a full development
of all the facts material to the object of
the inquiry. Upon these facts being ad
mitted, or shown, Judge Arnaux stated
that he would ask to have the in
vestigation stopped as unnecessary:
or tl.-e before proceeding, the com
plainant shall state: First, exactly what
he projxjseg to prove; -econd, the wit
nesses and documents by which
he proposes to prove it,
and shall also show facts
in such material addition to those which
appeared and were considered by the
court of inquiry as to justify another In
vestigation, the committee overruled
the motion on the ground that the House
resolution directed them to proceed to
the investigation upon charges already
In Murray's Favor.
Washington, D. C. April 5. Justice
Harden testified before the Springer Com
mittee on investigation of the charges
against Governor Murray of Utah that he
knew the general standing of Murray In
Kentucky for twenty years, and that there
was no man In the State, who would be
more generally endorsed.
Speaker John (i. Carlisle, testified that
he was a member of the bar iu Kentucky
during the time that Murray was Mar
shal of that State. His reputation then,
as now, was as high as that of almostany
man in the State. He was a gentleman
of integrity, officially and personally.
Murray then resumed the stand In his
own defense. During the examination
Justice Harlan and Chairman Springer
inquired if he knew the reputation for
truth and veracity of Congressman White,
of Kentucky, who denounced Murray in
a speech on the floor of the House of
Representatives. Witness was about to
answer, when objection was made and
the question was ruled out.
