A MURDER VICTIM
Coroner's Jury Brings in Verdict
Lumberman Was Shot to

Duluth, Minn., Aug. 19 Murder was
the verdict returned late yesterday by
the coroner's jury which investigated
the death of John McAldne, Duluth's
wealthy lumberman, found shot to

During the unraveling of the circuit
stances surrounding the mysterious j
killing yesterday it became more and
more apparent that the lumberman
did not meet death either by his own
hand or accidentally. The case is the
most puzzling and baffling which has
confronted the local police for years.
The next official body to take up
the murder mystery probably will be
the grand jury, which meets in Sep
tember. Interest at the Inquest centered
i about the testimony of Dr. James Mc-
AullfTe, deputy coroner, who was twice
summoned to the' scene, Da'.e McAl
pine, the son. and Mrs. Alice McAl
pine, the daughter-in-law-.

no circumstances 'should he tell his
mother that his father had been shot,
according to Dr. McAuliffe's testi
mony. The first time was upon the
conclusion of his early morning visit
and the second time was when he
called after having learned at tha
morgue that McAlpine had a bullet
w ound in the head.
Later, on the stand. Dale McAlpine
stated the first he knew his father had
been shot was when he was told some

Testimony given by Dale McAlpine
did not agree with that of Dr. James
McAuliffe. A man named "Fred" was
mentioned for the first time. He had
threatened to "get even" wiih Mr.

Albany, X. Y., Aug. 19. When the

automatically succeeded to the govern

office until Gov. SuH;er is acquitted or
the impeachment proceedings are dis

An opinion to that effect was given yes

In the same opinion Mr. Carmody

that reason the assembly acted within
its legal lights when it voted in favor
ot impeachment proceedings despite
the fact that the legislature is con

The attorney general's opinion is ex
pected to have an important bearing
on the controversy concerning who is
governor of Xew York state. It is cus
tomary for state departments to ad-'

The opinion was given in response
to the following inquiry:

The term "impeachment" is used in
this connection in its ordinary sense
and means the presentation of charges.
The assembly is not precluded from
the exercise of its constitutional pow

is convened in extraordinary session

ftO MEETING OF THVSTEE9.
Acting Governor Glynn and his legal
advisers yesterday changed their
mind regarding the holding of a meet
ing of the board of trustees of public
buildings. It was decided not to hold
the meeting until today or later, after
getting an opinion from the attorney
general that it was not necessary for
the trustees to meet at the time. The
attorney general advised Acting Gover
nor Glynn that the law did not re
quire the presence of the trustees
when the bids were opened, as this
duty was purely a ministerial one
w-hich could be performed by the sec
retary of the trustees.
Acting Governor Glynn expects
State Architect Pilcher, after tabulat
ing these bids, will submit them to Mr.
Glynn, Acting Lieutenant Governor
Wagner and 8peaker of the Assembly
Smith for action instead of to Gover
nor Sulzer, in view of Attorney Gen
eral Carmody's opinion that all sta'e
departments should recognize Lieu
tenant Governor Glynn a acting gov
ernor pending Governor Sulzer'g trial
It is expected that Acting Governor
Glynn will meet with the other two
trustees whom he recognizes, Wagner
and Smith, - tomorrow and formally
designate the lieutenant governor's
room as the executive office.
GI.YX SPEEDS BT'SY DAY.
Acting Governor Glynn put in two
hours' work in his newspaper office
yesterday before coming to the capitol
and for two hours in the afternoon he
worked in the composing room in his
shirt sleeves "making up" the paper.
Governor Sulzer was In better
spirits and the careworn look which
he has carried since his impeachment
waa less pronounced. He showed dur
ing the day that the continued im
provement in Mrs. Sulzer's condition
had relieved him of a great care.
Although there was a large number
of friends, primary advocates and job
seekers in the executive chambers all
ctternoon, the governor did not come
out to tee them until after be called

Washington, D. C, Aug. 19. A dis
patch from John lind informed Presi
dent Wilson and "Secretary Bryan he
had been in conference with Huerta.at
an early hour today. He characterized
his reception and conference with
Huerta as cordial. Last night's dls- J
patches attributing an announcement
by Huerta to Minister Urrltla of the
department of the interior stirred offi
cial circles here deeply. Bryan
an early riser, read the morning news
papers, and hurried to his office, where
he found a reassuring cable from
O'Shaughnessy, then hurried to the
White house to confer with the presi
dent While there the message came
from Lind telling of 1 '.s conference
Members of the senate foreign rela
tions committee alarmed by the ap
parent gravity of the situation, hurried
to the White house to ask for a con
ference with the president. There
seemed to be a division of opinion
among them as to whether Urritia'a
announcement was unauthorised.
Some were strongly inclined to accept
that explanation as given by Foreign
SITl'ATIOIV STII.I, DELICATE.
O'Shaughnessy's dispatch, .backed
up by Lind's, served to dispel the im
pression the-first news dispatches had
created and the official views switched
around to the general belief that while
the situation was a delicate one, there
was hope of some ratlsfactory con
elusion as long as conferences were
continuing between Huerta and Lind.
It is generally understood that while
the negotiations are in progress, the
Mexican government's request that

AWAIT KIIS'AL, OI'TCOMK.
The United States will await the fin.
al outcome of the negotiations be
tween Lind and Huerta before taking
further steps on the policy towards
Mexico. While Huerta's rejection of
the American proposal was a disap
pointment, officials were encouraged
by advices from Lind that he was con
ferring with Huerta "at his sugges
tion." Discussion of alternative meas
ures are held in abeyance, and admin
istration officials maintained a wait

with senators of the foreign relations
committee, who agreed with them and
quieted threatened outbreaks on the
senate floor. .

Mexico City, Aug. 19. Face to face:
in conference during the night, Lind
and Huerta are believed to have
reached an understanding which may
yet prevent severance of relations be
tween the United States and Mexico,
and serve to continue negotiations la
which Washington may play the part
of mediator. No details of the con
ference have been given out, but it Is
known the meeting .was cordial, and
that Lind considered the so-called

as unauthorized. Urrltia's statement
was to the effect that the United
States would be given until midnight
to agree to the recognition of th

severance of all relations.
