Walla Walla, June Following a
verdiot rendered by a coroner's Jury
that Dudley Cully, 'the young man
shot flown at the W. ft C. R. depot
Tuesday night, came to his death by
a gunshot wound, .inflicted by un

companion of the dead boy, was for

Prosecuting Attorney Wilson was

placed In the county Jail.
Schonleber borrowed the pistol
from a saloon about 10 o'clock, and
about an .hour afterward returned It.
He admitted being with Cully at the
time of the shooting, but says Cully
grabbed the gun away from him
(Schonleber) and shot himself. How
ever, there were no powder burns on

(Crowd Siniill niid Paid Mule Attention
to tlie Exercises.
From accounts given by those who
returned last evening from Portland
after having attended the exercises
on "Pendloton Day," the occasion
was not the gorgeous affair Indicated
by the accounts given 111 the Portland
papers, and, In fact, was very per
functory. According to Mr. Rader
the speeches and recitations given
were very credltnble, but the majority
of those who beard them did not un
derstand the ooenston.
The exercises were held at the Ore
gon building, and music was furnish
ed by a band. Addresses were made
by President Myers, Judge Ayers of
Heppner, Judge Bean of this city, and
by Cecil Wnde. Also an original poem
was delivered by Miss Neva Lane. A
small crowd was present, and people
continued to go In and out of the en
trance during the exercises. The la
dles are said to have remained up
stairs during the affair.
Of the hundred who went down
from Pendleton on the excursion
train, only a half dozen were at the
program, Judging from the number of
badges In evidence. ,
Another Date Selected,
Owing to the poor turnout at the
fair on June 7 and the few Pendleton
people present, Mr. Rader states that
the fair management desires to have
another date set for this place at a
later day, and another celebration
held when more people may attend
from here. This matter Is said to
have been taken up by President My
ers of the state commission, and It Is
possible that this city will be allowed
to suggest the date. '

WAVELLE CUNNINGHAM SUICIDES.
Portland, June 9. (Special.) Wavelle Cunningham ' of Pen-
dlcten, daughter of Mrs. B. Cunningham, suicided at a lodging house
here last night by gas. She was a student at Stanford . university.
She left a note saying "This is a plain case of suicide. No use to
make any Investigation."
. Possible Motive for Murder.
Portland, June 9, S:20 p. m. (Spocial.) The police says there
was a motive for murder, and refuse to accept the suicide theory.
(Mrs. Cunningham, the mother of Wavelle, lives In this city.
Miss Cunningham has lived In Pnd!eton for some time, and was
very bright and popular young woman. A week or two ago she
bought some Jewelry In Portland, giving her check for the same. The
funds which were in the bank were In her mother's name, and Wa-
velle In giving the check signed her own name, and the bank notl-
.fled the Jeweler that she had no funds there. The firm which had
sold her the jewelry had her arrested In San Francisco. When the
matter was explained they ordered her release, but It Is supposed
that the fact of having been arrested preyed upon her mind and led
her to take the unfortunate and much to be regretted step of self-
