MORMONS DRIVEN OUT
BY THE GERMAN POLICE
Berlin, Germany, July -2. Herr Dalwitz, Prussian minister of the interior,
on recommendation of the political police, has sijrned orders for the expulsion,
of 21 Mormon missionaries, most of them Americans or Englishmen, anci they
will be conducted to the frontier today.
The state of the Mormons in Germany wai taken up with the American em
bassy im 1003, when the srovcrnment took the position that the teachings of the
missionaries tvas subversive of morality. It was then arranged vith the Mnr
mon superintendent that all Mormon missionaries slibuld withdraw fromv the
country within a month, transferrins middle European headquarters from Ber

ABOUT TO DEVELOP
Chicago. UL, July 22. The alleged
discovery of a second bullet in the e
at the home of the late Ira G. Rawn,
president of the Monon railway, may
play an important part in determining
the manner in which- the railroad presi
dent met death.
In this discovery the members of the
Barwn family sax is the clinching argu
ment supporting then- theory that Mr.
Bawn was murdered bv a burelar. In

afternoon. For five minutes in honor
of the memory of the president not a

Coroner Hoffman announced today
that he had information which led him
to believe that president Rawn was
rfiurdered for revenge. He immediately
went into conference with acting chief
of police Schuettler, aud later it was
announced that an arrest probably
would be made this afternoon.
Whether Rawn was killed by a bur
glar or whether, as stated bv the Chi
cago police, he committed suicide, rail
road men declare that his death occurred
on the eve of what may be one of the
greatest scanaals in railroad history.
Questions asked Rawn at a hearine Julv
7 in the Illinois Central car repair cases,
all were planned, it is said, bv attorneys
with the intent to incriminate Rawn as
responsible for thefts.
Twice on personal pleas he had ob
tained postponement:, but the last effort
for de3ay had failed, and the examina
tion was to have been continued next
His death will not cause any halt in
the inquiry, said Waiter L. Fisher, one
of the attorneys in charge of the in
quiry. For the first time ince the death took
place, the air of secrecy was lifted from
the Rawn home and newsqjapsr men were
summoned last night. Upon their ar

A ojtw theorv as to the means by
which Raiwa was ttot to death is sug
gested from the office of the private de

relatives to investigate the death.
The opinion was expressed that when
Rawn met his death as the result of an
accident, and tihat in fact but one shot
had been fired, and that from the revol
ver held bv Rawn.
"It is likely tfoat Rawn heard some
noise in his home, and with the revolver
descended the stairs in search of an in
truder," said an officer of the detective
agencv. "When near the bottom of the
stairway, I believe, he stumbled and
the revolver was discharged.
"This would account for the fact that
onlv one shot wCi3 heard bv neighbors,
and that ihere "was no trace of a' robber
in the house. Mr. Rawn's relatives,

assumed he had been shot bv a burglar,

Locked in Jail for Cutting
Fence to Springs That He
Had Already Purchased.
Mexico City, Mex., July 22. The de
partment of foreign relations at the so
licitation of the American embassy has
asked by telegraph for information re
lating to the arrest and imprisonment
at Tia Juana, in Lower California, of j
u. w. jucivoy, a weaiuiy vuiuiichix resi
dent of San Diego. McKay is alleged
to have run , afoul of the Mexican au
thorities through tearing down a portion
of the boundary fence on an estate
which he had recently purchased.
Ambassador Wilson, anticipating the
arrival of the instructions from Wash
ington, which reached him today, had al
ready taken the matter up with foreign
minister Creel on a communication from
Los Angeles, signed by several prominent
residents of that city.
McKay's offence, according to the un
derstanding of the ambassador from the
meager facts in his possession, is alleged
to constitute trespass, which, under the
construction of the Mexican law, is a
crime, not a civil offence, and is punish
able by imprisonment.
Story of the Case.
San Diego, OaL, Julv 22. D. W. Mc
Kay, whose arrest at Tia Juana and sub
sequent removal to Ensenada, has been
brought to the attention or the state
department at Washington, was today
released on bail at Ensenada, according
to advices received by his attorney, J.
E. Wadha-m. of this "city.
Mr. Wadham made this statement to
the Associated Press today:
"The facts, as I understand them,
which are founded upon statements
made to me by D. W. McKay, Mrs. Mc
Kay and Albert Arguello, the prosecuting
witness, nre a follows:
"Mr. McKay went to Tia Juana Hot
Springs -for the benefit of his wife's
Siealth. The springs are located about
three miles below the boundary line
from Tia Juana, and for the past year
she has spent most of her time at the
springs and Mr. McKay has traveled
back and forth to his business. Mr. Mc-Ka3-
has purchased or entered into
agreements for the purchase with several
of the heirs for then- interest in the Tai
Juana springs., le cut a wire fence upon
this pronertv and "Put m a gate. -Mr.
Arguello denies that Mr. McKay asked
the permission. Mr. Arguello went to
Tia Juana and swore out a warrant,
upon which McKay was arrested. He
was thrown into fail at Tia Juana on
the morning of Saturday, the 16th, but
Mrs. McKav did not know of tbis in
carceration until about 12:30. at which
time she telephoned to me. I imme
diately went to Tia Juana and found
that 5rr. McKay was being examined by
the authorities. ,I made an appeal that
Mr. McKay be released on bonds, which
had been offered in any reasonable
amount bv the Merchants' National bank
of San Diego; the authorities refused J
to consider the matter, stating that he
should not be released on bonds until
the testimony of the hearing was sent
Locked In "Dungeon.
"In consequence of which Mr. McKay
stayed in Tia Juana in jail until the aft
ernoon of the 18th instant.
"I am informed that Sunday, the 17th
instant, he was (moved into pretty good
quarters and was allowed to go in and
out of the door when he saw fit. but
that Sunday night he was returned to
his dungeon and locked up, the guard
stating that he did not propose to take
any chances. We offered to take Mc
Kay to Ensenada in an automobile and
take the guards with us, but this was
refused, although Mr. McKay was per
mitted to go -in his own wagon, in charge
of two officers, who, I believe, rode i
horseback. I am told that Mr. McKay
was handcuffed, but I do not know ns
to this positively. However, I have re
ceived advices from Ensenada to the
effect that Mr. McKa has been released
A special from Washington savs:
"The state department has cabled to
Ensenada instructing the consul there
to watch the proceedings in the McKay
case and inform the department fully.
The embassy at Mexico City has also
been instructed to investigate. The de
partment is determined to make a
searching inquiry and to do all in its
power to see tha't McKay has fair treat
ment. Acting secretarv Wilson said to
day that nothing had l)een heard from

Torreon, Mex., July 22. News has
been brought to this city of the attempt
on the life of D. R. Thomas, manager of
the Predilecta mines in the Guanacevi
mining district, by one of his workmen.
Thomas was paj'ing the miners for the

The man suddenly drew his pistol and
fired twice at Thomas, missing both,

made his escape into the mountains.
There have been various rumors of
late that there was danger brewing
for the bullion trains from robbers in
that section, as it is believed that a
band is lurking there. The governor
has sent a number of well mounted
rurales to be stationed at that point
for the protection against anj- attack.

This is the first nomination of candi-
dates for state office under the amend
ed election law. The nomination 6 is
made by direct primary vote. The can
didate who receives a plurality will be
the party's nominee. The fact that
there are five candidates for governor,
three representing the prohibition fac
tion of the Democratic party, one the
anti-prohibition organization and the
liquor interests, and one who expects to
receive support from both factions,
makes the situation unusually inter
esting. It is expected that about 500,
000 Democratic votes will be cast. The
vote promises to be very close for four
of the candidates for governor, with
sentiment about equally divided as to
which one will win. The surface indi
cations point to the nomination of O.
B. Colquitt, who is the candidate of
the anti-prohibition organization and
the liquor interests. Cone Johnson and
William Poindexter will divide the pro
hibition vote, it is thought, and there
by bring defeat to that faction of the
partv. R. V. Davidson's chances of re
ceiving the nomination are considered
good by many people who are in close
touch with the nolftical situation. J.

not expected to receive more than a
few hundred scattering votes. He is
not a factor in the contest

for the proposition in the primaries? it
will be made a platform demand when
the state convention is held August 10
The campaign has been a warm one.
The candidates for the office of gov
ernor have made the longest campaign
in the history of the state. Some of tne
candidates have been continuously on
the stump for more than six months.
The legitimate-expenses of h-e-xandi-dates
as a result of this long campaign
have been enormous and will total many
thousands of dollar, -more than the sal
ary of the office would pay if the can
didate nominated served for life. In
cluding the money spent by the state
and county managers of the various
candidates, the campaign has cost be
tween $2,000,000 and x $3,000,000.
