According to the story told by Eg
gar. Crow urose at his usual hour
this morning, 6 o'clock, and went to
Egar's room. The two drank cof
fee together, and while sitting in the
room. Crow remarked:
"John, this Is the last cup of cof
fee wo will drink together."
Eggur says that ho paid little at
tention to the remark, as Crow- had
several times spoken of committing
Crow left him shortly after that
and went to his own room. After
he had been in the room u while,
four shots were heard. Kggar says
he went to the door of the room and ,
asked what the trouble was. but
Crow replied that he was cleaning his
At noon Crow failed to come out
of his room and some of his neigh
bors began to fear that he had car

cide. They notified the police and
Officer Tony Guevara went to the
Receiving no response to his knock,
the officer forced the door and found
Crow lying In a pool of blood on the
floor. Strong's ambulance was called
and City Physician Pearce took Crow
to the hospital where his Injured
throat was dressed. No attempt could
bo made to extract the two bullets
imbedded In his head.
Crow was conscious this afternoon
but little hope is entertained for his
recovery. He said that he was de
spondent and wanted to end his life.
He first shot himself with a revolver,
44 caUber, the bullet entering his
r.ose, and when the bullet .failed to
kill, he placed the muzzle of the gun
in his mouth and fired again. When
ICggar, attracted by the shuts, ran tJ
the door of the room. Crow told him
that he waa merely cleaning his re

"f must be an awfully poor shot."
After Eggar had gone away he cut
his throat. No trace of the instru
ment with which Jie cut his throat
could be found, but an empty razor
case was lying on a table,
Hla revolver contained four empty
chambers and occupants of the house
say that four shots were fired. It is
believed that Crow fired two shots to
test the gun and then fired the other
two Into his head.
