San Diego, Calif., Aug. 1. Bert
S3. Durham, fireman, who ran amuck
last night, shot and killed one fire
man, wounded -two others and beat
his wife and child to death, today
made his way to the plaza In the
llieart of the, city and shot himself
through the head. Ho1 will probably
Armed men searched for Durham
throughout the night.
Early today Durham sent in u
'false alarm of fire. Hiding near the
firebox, he opened fire when hosa
cart No. 3 drove up. He killed
Fireman Grant and wounded Captain
. Sampsell and Fireman Elliott. He
then fled, going to his own home,
where he beat his wife and child to
death. Durham then returned to
the city on a street car. He was
recognized by a few persons.
After alighting from the car ho
-waiked coolly to a corner and bought

"e'ntered- the plaza and- walked- out

'J -the right ear and sent a bullet Into
v . his brain. Policeman Kirkland saw
the man just before he drew his re
volver, rushed toward him and was
only a few feet away when the shot
was fired. Durham was' taken to
the Emergency hospital, here it was
announced that ho might recover.
When it was learned that the
murderer had attempted to commit
suicide and almost succeeded, talk
of violence died down. An effort
was made to get a statement from

Durham, who was still conscious at
10:30 this morning.
Durham turned In a false alarm at
1 o'clock this morning and opened
fire upon the members of hose com
pany No. 3 when they reached the
box at Spruce and Second streets,
Later ho beat his wife and baby to
death. It is thought ho was driven
Insane by brooding over fancied
wrongs, whllo employed at tho flra
house. When he left tho company
ho treasured a grudge against sev
eral other firemen. Ho had threat
ened to "get them all," but the fire
men thought ho was only talking.
When the alarm was sounded,
five members of company No. 3 re
sponded with tho engine and hose
reel. Don Grant, chief engineer of
the company, was shot-fiown by Dur
ham just as the alarm box was
reached. Grant fell from the rear
end of his engine, and Driver Elli
ott turned tho hose cart rapidly up
Second street and attempted to re
gain the station. Durham ran up
Spruce to . Fifth and intercepted
them. Captain Sampsell, and Driv
er Elliott, both seated on the front
seat of tho hose cart, were shot.
-Durham -easily -might have shot
Engine Driver. Wood's and HosenSan
Messenger, but after looking keenly
at tlie'm', tiirri"e"d and walked across
the street. He had no grudge
against them, It is said.
The wounded men were taken to
St. Joseph's hospital by other fire
companies and a dozen police.
Captain Sampsell is shot In the
lungs and probably will die. Little
hope Is expressed for Elliott's recov
ery. In their search for the murderer
tho police wont to Durham's apart
ments, Just opposite the" court house,.
There thoy found the bodies of his
wife and baby, beaten with a club
almost to a jelly.
Durham of late has been out of
work. He Imagined that tho men
with whom ho had quarreled, while
a member of tho fire department,
were to blame for his troubles.
After killing his wife and baby
Durham changed his clothing and
disappeared. He Is said to have
been seen hanging around the fire
house towards daylight.
Coroner Morgan Is preparing to
hold an Inquest over tho bodies to
morrow. "IT'S A SIMPLE LIE,"

Crippen, calm and talkative during
the river Journey from Father Point

Inspector Dew today expressed the

to British law, the suspect may not

charges against them, and the detec

causo her to reveal circumstances
that will help unravel tho case.
When Dew boarded tho Montroso
he was first uncertain that the man
was Crippen. The suspect had shaved
off beard and moustache. When
searched, a 'canvas bolt was found on
Crippen In which were several of the
woman's diamond rings, earrings and
No revolver was found on Crippen.
After Mile. Leneve had revived from
her swoon In the stateroom of tho
Montrose, tho girl rushed to a port
holo and threw something Into the

was Crlppen's revolver.
An envelope was found In Crlp
nen's effects that had contained a
powder. This will be analyzed later
It Is thought that It Is a poison.
Although the passengers on the
Montroso did-not recognize Crippen
and his companion, and although the
pair 'were not aware that their Iden
tity was known to the officers of the
ship, tho captain, tho three mates and
tho Marconi wireless operator knew
that tho suspects wero on board.

Mile. Ethel Clare Lenevo, hltTstenog-
rapher, charged as an acossory to tho
alleged murdor, also was taken off the
liner Montroso, and placed In a cell in
the women's prison.
Unusual precautions wore taken by
the police, the Widespread publicity
