Mrs. W. J. Wiesbarth Takes
Poison "Despondency"
Reason Given
Mrs. .Mary Weisbarth, daughter-in-law
of Captain Weisbarth, the vet
eran South Sea trader, and wife of
William P. Weisbarth, a well known
local mariner, committed suicide at
6:30 this morning by taking poison.
A note found tucked away in a win
dow box at flowers in her bedroom
gave "tired ofjlife" as the reason for
the deed. '...'' :
Mrs. Weisbarth, who was 27 years
old, had not been well of late, and
when she retired last night, com
plained of dizziness and expressed a
desire that death would "relieve her
sufferings. y, ; "; ' ;
When ' the family arose at six
o'clock this morning, Weisbarth .went
out on the front, steps to read the
paper, while his wife went to the
kitchen to prepare breakfast; She
had not been in the4 kitchen long be
fore Weisbarth' heard his wife go to
the bedroom and close the door, be

An automobile was standing in the

Meanwhile Dr., Wall had managed,

the impetuosity of the boy's own ad
vance on his bicycle threw him into
the front of the machine.
He stretched out 'his right arm,
which went through 1he glass of the
headlight, and the boy fell to the
ground with the wreckage of his bi
cycle, which had crumpled like, paper
against" the hood of the car. . " '
When Dr. Wall reached his side,
the youth was sitting, in the middle of
the road and extracting splinters of
glass from his hand and ' arm, which
was lacerated and bleeding - pro
fusely. '
Takes Victim to Doctor,
Aside from the broken headlight,
Wall's machine was unhurt, so he
placed the boy in the car and drove
post-haste to the office of Dr. J. T.
Wayson. where the victim's wounds
were dressed. :'.' ,'' . "' :" -.: .

Idea of Substantial Gift for thei
Great Swimmer Is "
The first local ' contribution to the

this morning, when - the Clarion sent
$10 in gold to the Star-Bulletin to help
along the movement launched yester
day for, a substantial gift for the great
Hawaiian athlete now winning honors
in the Swedish Olympic games.
Suggested by two ' sportsmen of
liana, Maui,: whose letter, enclosing a
check for $15 reached the ''Star-Bulletin'
yesterday and was published yes
terday afternoon, the fund has struck
the popular note. As soon as its ob
ject is understood, it is freely predicted
hy the friends of the crack swimmer
that the public response will be more
than heart,y.

Lorimer Says He's Not Guilty
. ISpc!ul Star-Bulletin Cable .;
WASHINGTON, D. C July 11-Senator Lorimer of Illinois today spoke
in his own defense to the Senate, making a general denial of the charges
that he had obtained his seat by bribery in the Illinois Legislature. During
his speech today 'he made a bitter attack on Governor Deneen of Illinois, de
claring thtt Deneen should be ousted from the executive's chair. He also
attacked, the Chicago newspapers, which are responsible for the uncovering
of Lorimer's actions. He said the proprietors of the- newspapers should be
jailed.1 The Senate wilt probably vote on the vnajority report, for Lorimer,
and the minority report, against him, tomorrow. '
