Frank W. lllfhanl'on. on the night of December 24. The indictment of Mrs Richardson is only another step in the effort to force her to till who Klllt.il her husband. Mrs. Rich ardson will be arrested to-morrow morning ami her attorneys will try to secure her release on bail She will be tri.'tl in July. The Grand Jury is still la session and may return Indictments, against one or two prominent citlzt ns of Savannah. Mrs Rich ardson is epectid to bri.ik down and turn State's evidence, but thosi who know the woman suj she will not make known the name of hir husband's sl.iver. Mi.s. Rich ardson was in Savannah when the indict ment was returned, bat said nothing vvhtn told that she wa charged with the murder. She dreads the jail worse than death, she has said, and her incaiceration may lesult in a confession Tho CoroneTs, jury charged Mrs. Rich ardson with bving an accessor. be'Ieving that sho would confess. The Grand Jury went a step farther In the hepe that a. confession may be got from her. It Is not believed that the woman actually tired the shoe. Another Indictment i;peeleil Tii-lhi. It has leaked out of the Grand Jury room that the circumstantial evidence against ,i young man in Snv.inn ih. whose nam has been connected with the murder mysteiy, is very strong, and an indictment !s ex pected to-morrow. There Is a loud protest in Savannah to night against Mrs. Richardson being ad mitted to bail. The people there want her sent to Jail. In spite of ner wealth, believ ing that she will confess. The . strongest evidence against Mrs Richardson, it Is said, was glvtn bv- tho witness who visited the house the night of the murder. They noticed that Mrs. Rich ardson was ntrvous ami excited until she was certain that her husband was dead, when her manner changed, they claim. While the mvsttxy is no nearer a solu tion than at first, jieople here believe that the Grand Jurj will reveal more before Its work Is finished. Many witnesses whosi evidence may throw light on the murder have not been examined The hive ben present every day since the jury has been in session, but for some reason have not been called. It is believed that there will be another Indictment returned lo-d.iy. and lint the ariest following it will clear the invs-ter to some extent. Mrj of (be Murder. Trank W. Richardson, n. member of the Fife-Richardson Mercantile Comp inv of this city, was shot and killed at ills home about 9 o'clock Chri.Umas Eve last. A bullet from a 22-caliber revolver entered just beneath the base of the skull, behind me rignt ear. ana ranged upward and to the- left, through the brain, and found lodg ment In the vicinity of the left ear. Pow der marks wru found on the right side of the face, just in front of the ear. His wife, who was in the room at the time, savs that his death was instantaneous. in her testimon- before the Coroner's Jurv she stated that she heard her husband come into the hill and as he was entering the bedroom where she was with her hat and loak on ready to start for th opera-hous- "nu jit-.ii . .1 ie-1'uii ui .-i jiiuu aim ni ten the greater portion of his body Ivlng in the hallway. Thinking that he was intoxicated and pretending suicide, bhe took hold of his clothes near his hips and dragged his bodv Into the room. She lighted the lamp, anil after discovering that he had been killed, ran to a near neighbor and gave the alarm, cring for help as she went along. She also testified that just after the rcnort of the pistol she heard a noise in the kitchen like a door or window slam, but concluded that hr servant had returned and called to her. but got no answer. When she dis covered that her husband had been killed, loncluded that it was the assassin making his escape through the bark door. It was shown before the Coroner's jury that Mr. Richardson and his wife had made ar rangements to attend an entertainni":it at the opera-house that night, and that she was to meet him at bis place of business and go from the: p. Theory of the I'ronecntlon. About 8:45 Mr. Richardson left his store and started towards his home, and about 3 o'clock a telephone message was sent to the store stating that he was shot. When the news was received It was the general opinion of those who heard It that It was a case of suicide, but when the parties searched the house and heard the statement of his wife and no pistol could be found. It was concluded that he was murdered. Thj theory' of the prosecution from the Ftnrt has been that Mr. Richardson sus pected his wife, went horre, discovered that the light was out and that there was a man in the room with her, and that when he "ntercd the room the fatal shot was llred by one of the parties. Mrs. Richardson claims tint she was alone In the room when her husband ar rived, and had just put the light out with the Intention of starting to the store and that the fatal shot was fired from the hallway by some one unknown to her. REORGANIZATION PLAN. International Zinc Stockholders Will Consider It To-Day. ' ItnPti'BLJC SPKCIAL. New York, March 14 Stockholders of the exploded International Zinc Company, who will meet on Saturday at No. 6S Wall street to discuss a plan of action, will con sider a project for reorganization, which Charles H. A. Dougherty of that address has had called to his attention. W. B. Knne. cashier of the rirst National Bank of Carterville. Mo, embodied It in u letter to Mr. Dougherty. Mr. Kane sajs that the Free Coinage mine, near Jopdn, owned by the concern. Is worth $55,000, and that an added value In machinery and a mining lease of $5 000 make the gross assets of the company SC0. 000. Liabilities are a mortgage of RM.OOO on this mine which will be sold In foreclosure on March SO and a floating debt of $12 000. of which 59.0W can probably be disregarded, as It is a claim of Joshua Brown & Co. Assuming the valid liabilities to bo $33,000, then an equity of $27,000 is left. Mr. Kane advises that a trustee b se lected to buy In the mine at foreclosure and thinks it can be purchased for $2,500 more than the mortgage. The trustea shoeld turn It o.-er to a new company, he said, which should Issue 550,000 worth of bonds out of the proceeds of which the mortgage should be p-iid off. The Free Coinage mine, it is estimated, can earn $5 000 a year. The plan, which Is not very fully outlined, has merely the object of saving the small equity, that remains, and it is highly doubtful If the stockholders will go Into It. CLAIRVOYANT IN TROUBLE.

Governor Wells has vetoed the Kvans bill, relating to the making ot complaints and com mencing of prosecutions in criminal cases. The veto mes-age, which Is lengthy, con cludes as follows: "I yield to no one In affection for those, my people, who. from the highest motives and because they believed it a divine com mand, entered into the relation of plural marriage. Born and reared in Utah, my self a. product of that marriage system, taught from Infancy to regard my lineage as approved of the Almighty, and proud to-dav. as I have ever been, of my herit age, it will be granted. I trust, that every Instinct of mv nature reaches out to shield my friends from harm and to protect them from unjust attack. Their cause is my cause, nnd when they are hurt I am hurt, for I am part ot them. "But in that same heart which is filled with sympathy for them I find, also, the solemn feeling that this bill holds out only a false" hope of protection, and that. In offerirjr a phantom relief to a few. It in reality invites a deluge ot discord and dis aster upon all. "For these reasons, briefly and Imperfect ly stated, and for many others which might be given at length. I am unable to approve the bill now before me." ing salutes, participating in parades and ilimonMiatlons, and nuiin rous othir w.is The mllltlnmcnt believe that they should hive recognition, either from the city proper or Its citizens and mcichants. in or der that they mav make a creditable shov. ing in ISiU Militia organizations w ill doubt-li-sh vl.Mt the city from other States, and !c is customary for visiting companies to re icdve the hospitality of local troops.

For nit AlnKkan VHInRe. A subscriber In Sitka, Alaska, suggests tint a village of Alaskans be brought to the Fair, with their hoti'os. Implements of .hourehold tire, war and the chase, and ivervthlng els- which goei to make up a tvplc.il native settlement. He sajs that tl cse people have many habits and cus toms which people dwelling in the tem perate zone have no idea of. The entile exhibit could be set III St. Ixiuls at com parative! small cost, and no trouble would be experienced in inducing a community of the hardy Alaskans to take the trip. He believes that so valuable a territory should be well representid at an exposi tion such as Is to be held lu St. uis. For a "permanent monument to com memorate the celebration, it is sugge-led that a colossal bronze statue be erected to the momoiv of Thomas Jefferson, to stand on an elevated cliff on the banks of the Mississippi River, the monument to bo surrounded by a park of seveinl acres. In all time to come this would bo a reminder to all pi'rons passing up and down the river of the great Exposition and the Presi elent who was Instrumental In making the purchase which it was hold to commem orate. One suggestion is for a huge clock, to be placed lu some kind of high tow or. so as to be visible- from any part of the grounls. lu connection with the big timepiece there .should be a sv-ten of chimes which would ling out the hours and half-hours. A no ticeable defect at the Chicago Exposition was the scarcity of decks, both In the buildings and about the grounds. MISS PAIGE MAY RECOVER. IJnil Is Refused for Her Tinoe Young Assailants.

"and started to walk, taking a path between the rails. It was already dark, and he evidently could not realize the danger ho was courting. I de termined to follow him, because I knew the trestle was only a short distance away, and I also knew that If he slipped and fell through the ties In the trestle his death would ho inevitable. Had such an accident befallen him he would have had no time to extricate himself before the south-bound car was upon him. I he fell. I reasoned. I could run ahead and signal the motorman, to stop. . . . "ArT-arcntlv the man wa3 In a very bad humor, and for that reason I said nothing to him. but nevertheless followed quietly behind, unknown to him. It sraw very dark and began to rain. The repeated flashes of 1 ghtnlng enabled me to keep the man in sight and to measure the distance between ir. It was not a great distance to the bridge, but the man stopred often and at best made but pcor progress. Finally we reached the trestle. He did not esa to cros3 It. but left the track and disappeared In tho darkness. I felt very much relieved, and, returning to my waiting place, took the next car tor the city." An hour later Goff wan killed. In some way he had again found his way back to the railroad, and thW time there was no one to warn or save him. Miss Stille heard of the accident after choir practice. The matter preved on her mind, and after tak ing a car to Well-ton she hastened to the scene of the accident on foot, no cars be ing at har.d. She declared that she ran every step of the way. reproaching herself the while for not having taking further precautions for the man's safety.
