Trapese Perfomer I. Killed and Oth.r
Mi.ifmunea Como Hand
In Hand.
Campbell Brothers' circus, which ap
peared here last month, is having a ran
of ill luck on the coast, according to Sn
day's Tacoma News, which says:
Misfortunes are not coming singly to
the Campbell Brothers in their tour of the
state with their big show. Following the
death in Tacoma of Orin Button, the
trapeze performer, who was injured at
North Yakimas comes the serious injury
of James Stacy, the pony man, by Venus,
the huge elephant belonging to the show.
The elephant in a fit of anger encircled
Stacy with her trunk and suspended him
aloft and then flung him to the earth.
He was picked up and found to be se
riously injured internally, not so much by
the fall as by the hug of the elephant's
The accident occurred at Ellensburg
Thursday. Stacy was taken to Roslyn,
where an exhibition was held Friday, and
he was given medical treatment. Yester
day it was found necessary to bring him
to the Fannie Paddock hospital in Ta
coma. It is believed that he has sus
tained injuries in the abdlomen.
It seems that Stacy was crippled as a
result of a punishment he administered
to the elephant. He was feeding the
ponies when the elephant encroached upon
their preserves in the tent and began to
devour their hay.
Stacy picked up a rawhide whip and
began to beat the huge beast, which, in
stead of retreating, became enraged. As
the man turned to go, the elephant picked
him up with her trunk, threw him down
and walked away to her own quarters.

Woman Who Adopted Stranger's Infant
Tires of Her Contreat.
Mrs. Fitzpatrick is having trouble in
trying to give away the infant she adopted
a few months ago.
She took a stranger's child to raise and
now she has changed her mind about want
ing it and does not know how to get the
babe off her hands.
This child was left at the office of Dr.
Weyerhorst by a member of the Syrian
colony shortly after birth. Mrs. Fits
patrick had just lost her own child and
adopted the foundling in the hope it
would be a comfort to her in her loneliness.
Her husband objected. Now she wishes
to be rid of the infant. She claims she is
uniable to get to see Dr. Weyerhorst.
The baby was contentedly pulling at his
bottle when in the courthouse yesterday.
It is said the child has a constitutional
disease and cannot grow to perfect health,
Henry Melcher Gets 90-Day Sentence
for Assault.
Henry Melcher will be the guest of
Sheriff Quinn for a long time. He has
been sentenced to go days in the county
jail as a result of an assault committed on
C. Shaffer.
The trouble between the two took place
in the Silver Bow saloon, July 9. When
the dust cleared away Shaffer had a
broken arm and a battered head.
He did not intend to prosecute the ac
tion at first, but claims Melcher has
threatened him with further injury.
The action for assault in the third de
gree was brought in Justice Colligan's
court in Walkerville.

Sixty Persona Killed.
Kleft, Russia. Aug. 13.-There were 6o per.
sons killed by the Cossacks in last Thursday's
riots. The sympathy of the educated classes is
with the workers, as the strike movement is
directed, not only for the amelioration of labor
conditions, but also against the system of gov.

"After thinking it all over," said a Butte
gambler today. "I have come to the cott
clusion that the state of Washington is not
a bad place in which to live, even if the
law says that gambling don't go. I think
I could do pretty well out there.
Then the Butte gambler, who has been
"down on his luck" for a long time,
handed around a Washington paper anld
pointed out the following article:
. Fritz I)ietrich of Spokane, who, far a
considerttion. offered himself as a vicari
ous sacrifice for his brethren of the green
cloth, will do a stunt of to months in
Walla Walla as a result of the supreme
court's decision in the anti-gambling case.
Under the new law the sentence of
felons begins to run fromt the time they
reach the penitentiary.
The old scheme of using up a year or
two in the county jail pending an a appeal
does not work any more. The new law
went into effect the same day that the
gambling law did.
Convicted felons are allowed two
months for good behavior during the first
year of their incarceration. I)ietfich got
a year's sentence, and if he behaves him
self he will be out at the end of so
Gets $6 Per Day.
It is stated on good authority that
Dietrich gets $6 a day while in durance
from the gamblers who put up the money
to fight the law. This $6 a day will be
turned over to him on his release from
the penitentiary.
It will date from June ~4 last, when be
was first arrested, until his to months at
Walla Walla are up. Prosecuting Attorney
Kimball says he will direct the sheriff to
take Dietrich to Walla Walla as soon as
the remittitur comes from Olympia. That
may not be for so days yet.
"Doc" Brown, "Dutch Jake" and Harry
Green, representing the three principal
gambling houses of Spokane, all declared
yesterday that they will abide by the
letter and the spirit of the law.
"Dutch Jake" will continue to ran his
palace of amusement. Harry Green is
more of a racing man than a gambler now,
while "Doc" Brown is seriously consider
ing establishing a gambling house some
where along the route of the Panama
canal, to rake in the shekels of those who
will go to that country to build the con
necting link between two oceans.
The Authorities Talk.
"I would prosecute a gambler who
opened a game just exactly as I would
prosecute a man who committed mur
der," said Prosecuting Attorney Kimball
"Both are felons, and you can't regulate
felonies by a monthly fine. I don't think
any of the Spokane gamblers, however,
have any notion of opening up.
"They have all told me that if the de
cision of the court went against them they
would give it up."
"The decision of the court means more
work for us," said Chief W\oydt. "Laws
against felonies have to be enforced, and
this one will be. Really, I don't antici
pate much trouble in enforcing it."
"1 have no doubt this means the end of
gambling," said Mayor Boyd. "I don't
think anybody imagines that it can be
tolerated hereafter, and I think that the
gamblers will find it hard work to get the
law repealed. Irrespective of the merits
of the law, everybody knows it is a darn
sight easier to pass such a law than to
repeal it."
Mr. Graves Will Not Talk.
Senator W\ill G. Graves, who represented
the gamblers in their fight, and who was
paid one of the biggest fees ever paid in
a criminal case in this state, wouldn't dis
cuss the decision.
"I haven't seen the opinion of the court
yet," he said, 'and until I do I can't say
"Is there any way you can get the case
into the federal court?" was asked.
"I haven't given any thought to that
The general impression is, however, that
the fight is over: that the curtain hm, been
rung down on the last act, and that public
gambling in Washington is a thing of the
past until some future legislature, moved
by sympathy from gamblers' woes, removes
the shadow of the penitentiary from the

City Physician Sulivan Is Surprised at
Examination of Samples.
City Physician Sullivan has been keep
ing tab on the restaurants for two days
by securing samples of the milk served
and analyzing them.
He sent persons to the restaurants to
order milk and on being served they
poured part of it into bottles and took
the same to the doctor, who applied the
usual tests.
Of the milk from the i8 restaurants
visited average purity was found to be
good. The average amount of butter fat
was found to be 3j per cent. This is
considered a good record.
Of eight of the first-class restaurants
visited all but one served a high per
centage of butter fat in the milk. The
latter is explained by the fact that ice is
kept in the milk, which, on melting,
naturally reduces the richness of the
To the surprise of the city physician he
found no instances of chemically adulter
ated milk. No preservatives were found
in the milk.
The persons who secured the samples
of milk took pains to keep their mission

Too Few City Fathers on Hand to
Take Action According
to Law.
The absence of the necessary two-thirds
members of the city council prevented the
aldermen from suspending the rules last
night and passing an ordinance curing a
defect in the tax ordinance passed last
Wednesday night.
Another meeting will be held tonight,
when, if there are two-thirds of the alder
men present, theordinance will no doubt
be amended.
When the council met last night in re
sponse to the mayor's call for a special
meeting, Alderman Siebenaler recom
mended that the council reconsider its
action in regard to ordinance No. 454,
providing for a tax levy.
The motion prevailed and Alderman T.
F. Stephens introduced council bill No.
17 amending the ordinance.
When it came to suspending the rules
for the passage of the bill it developed
that only ten aldermen were present, or
less than two-thirds.
A recess of ten tiinutes was taken,
while Chief of Police Mulholland tried to
round up enough missing aldermen to
make up the deficiency in number.
He failed, however, and there was noth
ing for the council to do hut adjourn until
this evening.
