SUICIDE CASE
PASCO, Wash., Oct. 12. — The
defense In the case of Mrs. Anna
Christensen, accused of the mur
der of her husband, is trying to
prove today that he took his own
life. Robert Brown of Walla
Walla aids this theory In his tes
timony with the information that
he was once given money to buy
strychnine for Christensen, but
becoming suspicious of Christen
sen's Intention returned the
money to him.
Severnl witnesses testified to
day having seen Christensen take
strychnine In whiskey for various
ills.
H. N. Balford of Port Angeles,
stated that every time he took,
any liquor with the decedent the
latter always used a small quan
tity of poison. A motion to
quash further proceedings on ac
count of insufficient evidence has
been denied.
"I want him croaked," were
the exact words Rose swore Beck
er used. "I will take care of the
men who do the job. The senti
ment at police headquarters is
such that they would gladly give
a medal to the man game enough
to croak Rosenthal. Here Is $100.
Give it to Zelig and tell him I
want Rosenthal stopped. Tell Zelig
and hlB friends if they want to
save themselves trouble they had
better get Rosenthal out of the
way at once."
Zelig, who himself has beea
shot and killed since the Rosen
thal murder, Rose said, demurred.
Then, the witness swore, Becker,
through him, sent another warn
lng to Zelig.

Wife's Confession of Love
Fil.'s Texas Court Calendar
With Awful Murder Cases
MTtS. LENA SNYDER SNEED,
THE BEAUTIFUL CAUSE OF
ALL THE TROUBLE.
AMAKILt/O, Test., Oct. 12. —
A year ago the young and pretty
wife of a wealthy Texan m«»l<-
niiiii got down on her knees be>
fore her husband and confessed to
being In love with another roan.
The erring wife was Mrs. Tvena
Snyder Sneed; the husbnd, John
Beal Sneed.
The object of the' wife's Illicit
affections was Al Boyce, gay, de
bonair, wealthy.
The wife begged her husband
to give her up so that she might
be free to marry her lover. The
husband pleaded In vain for her
to give up Boyoe and remain
true to him and their children.
When she refused he thought her
mentally deranged, and shut her
up In a sanitarioum, from whloli

First Pictures of Great World's Series Ball Games
she escaped and fled with Boyce.
The eloping couple were found in
Winnipeg, Canada. Mrs. Sneed
returned to her family.
In the 12 months that have
gone by since that confession was
made to the husband, murder has
alternated with suicide while the
Boyee-Sneed feud raged violently.
Boyce was the last to carry
Into his grave an assassin's bul
let. His father, Capt. Boyce, had
been killed by Sneed, for which
crime Sneed had but recently been
tried and saved through a dis
agreeing jury. Three other men
were murdered; two commltt«d
suicide; one was mysteriously
poisoned. All these deaths were
fruits of the confession and elope
ment.
JOHN BEAL. SNEED; THE
"HOUSE OF CONCEALMENT,"
AND THE ROOM IN IT WHERE
SNEED WATCHED FOR HIS
VICTIM.
Snced says that young Boyce
was again trying to get Mrs.
Sneed to run away With him. Al
though still under ball for the
murder of the father, Sneed set
out to complete bis revenge on
the Boyces. Disguised by a false
beard and laborer's clothes, he
rented a house and waited for
the moment when his rival should
walk by. For two weeks he. lay
there, behind drawn blinds, with
two automatic guns within easy
reach. Sept. 14, Boyce, who was
ignorant* of Sneed'g presence In
the neighborhood, walked to the
.Methodist church, behind which
'Sneed was hiding. ■ A shot rang
out and Boyce toppled over, a
dead man.
Sneed waa arrested, and when
searched a brass breast plate was
found on him. That was to pro
tect limlm from his Intended vic
tim's bullets. He will plead the
"unwritten law" as a defense for
slaying young Boyce, and ex
presses himself m poaltivG of an
acquittal.

PROGRESSIVE MEETING!
Hodge, Poindexter, Paulhamus!
Tacoma next Friday, October 18th, will have
the greatest political rally thus far held in the
state.
The armory has been secured, W. H. Paulha
mus will preside and Senator Poindexter and
Bob Hodge will be the speakers.
The people have already learned about Bob
Hodge and they want to hear him. • The 1500
who heard him on his last appearance at the Ta
coma theater have been telling their neighbors
about him ever since, until the whole city is in
terested.
Poindexter, one of the best friends this city
ever had at Washington, is coming here to talk
for Hodge and the progressive cause, and his
presence is enough to pack the armory itself.
Paulhamus was the favorite of many Taco
mans in the recent gubernatorial contest, but he
took defeat at the hands of Bob Hodge grace
fully, got right behind him, and he will be here
to preside over the meeting.
It will be the one big political event of this
campaign.

MATTY, THE OLD MASTER
PITCHES AGAINST BIG ODDS
By GKAXTXAXI* MCE.
(By I'nitcd I'ress Leased Wire.)
FENWAY PARK, BOSTON,
Mass., Oct. 12, —A flash of the
brilliant stuff that does business
in baseball by Hugh Bedient, a
youthful star of the Red Sox pitch
ing staff, coupled with a momen
tary lapse by Mathowson and a
bobble by Doyle, gave the Red riox
their third victory in the world's
series race here this afternoon by
a score of 2 to 1, and sent the
National league champions slip
ping and sliding down the ways
on the road to their second un
successful bid for a world' 3 cham
pionship.
Bedient, working In a style to
have done credit to a Walsh, hold
the Giants safe all the way and
let them down with a quartette of
hits, with the result that but a
single additional finish in front is
now needed by the Boston ians to
give them the world's champion
ship for 1912.
One round, one fatal sudden
cave-in, beat the Giants before
the greatest crowd that ever saw
a game in Boston.
Starting in the third Inning
Hooper slashed a drive by Herzog
which whizzed Into the left field
corner for a three-base blow.
Yerkes followed with another
slashing drive to left center for
another triple, and Hooper scored.
Then Doyle brought on disaster.
Speaker tapped to Captain Larry
for an easy out, but while Yerkes
stuck to third, Doyle let the tap
dribble away and the second run
—the fatal one —was over.
These two heartbreaking drives,
bunched with Doyle's error,
brought the old master back to
life. Prom that point on he cut
In with the finest pitching of his
life. But the stand came too late,
for Bedient had curbed the Giant
rush with the best pitched game
of the series. He worked a far
finer game than Wood had ghown
