HENRY STILL AT LARGE. Young Man W1k Murdered Wife Has Left Oin aim. Frank L. Henry, who shot and killed his wife, Maud Galloway Henry, Sat urday night, has not bei-n arrested. All city detectives .and patrolmen have been on the watch for him ever since the crime was committed, but they say now he may have eluded them and left the city. Thty are still keep ing a close watch for him. The alleged murder was due to the woman's refusal to return and Uvo with her husband after a three months separation, but the police have not yet concluded why she would not live with him. As ho has been known to them for years and has been ar rested more than once, they suggest that perhaps that accounts for tho wife's refusal. They also advance tho theory that he wanted to reform, but that she laughed at him and thereby angered him to the poltt of murder. BOY ADMITS FORGERY C1LVRC.E.

The shocks of Thursday morning were undulating and vertical, and nc- companlcd by deep roaring sounds. The first one was followed by an ex plosion like tho roar of cannon and lasted between eight nnd ten seconds. It in said that this quake was of great er severity than the fatal one of tha night of Dec. 28. The wooden houses and huts erected for the accommoda tion of the people seemed to be thrown from one side to another.

The estrangement dates ten years back, and occurred while Henry Rogers was on a visit to his brother's home. Ed Rogers was not at home at the time. The blacksmith's son asked Henry Rogers for a loan for his fa ther, which was refused. This angered Ed Rogers, and he swore that his brother should never set foot in his home again. Rogers says he has been offered a government job at Fort Bill at 90 a month, with $15 a month for ations, and will probably take It. FIOHT FOB THE PENNANTS.
