SUSPECTED MURDERER OF ELECTRICIAN BOAS It Is Believed Now That An Employe Sent Him the Poison San Francisco, Dec. 7. That John W. Wilson will be charged with the 'murder of his employer, Henry Boas, the young electric ian who died in great agony last week fro mstrychn'ne poi soning taken in powders sent him through the mails, was a statement made tonight by Captain of Detectives Kelly. The theory which the police held for several days that IJoas sent the pow ders to himself, knowing that the con tained sirythinr and committed suicide in this peculiar manner, was suddenly abandoned on Saturday when the de tectives placed Wilson under arrest. Theodore Kytha, the handwriting ex pert, after a thorough comparison nf the letter with Wilson's hand writing, made a report that Wilson wrote the fatal directions. "We will charge Wilson with mur der." said Captain Kelly, "upon the theory that he was prompted to com mit the crime so as to get possession of the business. There were a number of large outstanding accounts which could have been collected without difficulty. This money would have put Wilson on his feet. His money affairs are In a bad tanle." It was Wilson's assertion after the death of his employer, that he was a partner in the firm, that first caused suspicion to be directed against him. Wilson has been subjected to a terrible 'sweating" ordeal and is said io be on tho verge of a nervous collapse CO. !!

ROBBERY OF A BANK A WORK OE ART The Skillful Manner in Which a Portland Institution Was Despoiled. Portland. Ore., Dec. 7. The Fast Side Hank, located at Fast Washing ton and Grand avenue, was held up and robbed at 6 o'clock tonight by three unmasked men. It is under stood that they secured three sacks of gold containing over $16,500. President Henry H. Newhall and his son. Roger, were just closing the day's business when two men armed with revolvers entered. Several clerks were ordered to hold up their hands and while tho receiving teller was un der cover of one man, a confederate crawled through the cage window, passed out three sacks of gold to a confederate and crawled back into the foyer through the window. . A third man guarded the entrance. The three men then made their es cape before an alarm could be Round ed. From the neatness with which the job was done, and the exMditious way which the robbers made their escape, the police surmise that they must have bad other assistance or had a cache somewhere in the vicin ity of the bank. As soon as the frightened bankers recovered their senses an alarm was sounded and the police were notified, but It was too late.
