S medley, that ds. ar F. B.mtweU, a pioneer of the Slate and eitv, had Committed suicide. Tlit rep* rt pa-n d rapidly from mouth to mouth, and a starch was made for the Coroner. That otlicer being a' -i-nt at f-cattle, Justice Uathhun, ac c .mpanicd by County Physician Miiwcll, Chief of Police fjnvdvr, Deputy Sheriff Northup and County Attorney Root, proceeded to the premises of the deceased, where they found him in his wood shed, lying on a platform evi dently constructed, as was other ap pliances, especially to consummate this final act of his life. He had driven a peg into the wall, on which lie had sighted his gun, which was im movably fixed on supports at the opposite side of the shed. From the trigger of the gun, carried in staples driven in the wall, he had run a cord to a point that he could reach while reclining on the platform. He had Juben taken his position, his right ear resting on the peg in the wall, and his head supported hv a comfort, or bed spread, to bring it in perfect range. Over his face and body lie had placed a cloth, evidently to prevent the lilood from splattering his face. After he had taken his position it only requited a pull at the cord to send a 32-caliber hall crashing through his brain. The shot must have produced instant death, and he was found witli his hands crossed and his countenance bearing no evidences of agony which would have left there imprint had pain resulted from the wound. The deceased had made preparations in detail for the act. He had shaved, and arrayed himself in his best suit, and left his papers and household ef fects in perfect order. Just before he hid adieu to the world, evidently, he nailed a blackboard to the woodshed witli the inscription: " Look in the woodshed." Smedley followed out the injunction and was horrified to dis cover the corpse. On a table was found the following message: " I owe no one. Bury me in the Mud Bay burying ground. Tut me in the coffin as you find me. If my body should stand over night, put me in one of the tight rooms that will keep out rats and mice. What money I have is in my pocket." His spectacles were found lying he side the memorandum, and a slate on which was enumerated some tools that had been loaned and a statement that his taxes had t>een paid. In a tin box Justice Rathbun found his will which appoints Jos. Lammon ex ecutor, and directs that his property be sold. Gut of the proceeds he re quests that a plain stone be placed at the head of his grave bearing this in scription: "Oscar F. Boutwell, born in ChAtauqua county, N. Y., October 28,18"J4," A smaller stone, he directs, 10 be placed at the foot of his grave. " I bequeath," the document reads, " to my brother, John S. Boutwell, of Auroraville, Wis., all the remainder of the proceeds of the above named sale, •ugtther with what money I may jtfre. This composes my real estate: Bets C and I, Boutwell's addition to West Olympia; also lots 2 and 3, Giles subdivision of Boutwell's addition of lot 3; lots 11 and 12, block 57, Bout well's addition to North Olympia. The deeds for these two lots are lost, but you will find them on record. I also have 92 100 of an acre of tide land in front of my property on the westside." The document is signed by Reuben Peachey, William F. Yantis and F. Graham, as witnesses, and is dated July 23d, 1894. It is said that a for mer will was made by which he left his property to the Religio-Philosophi eal Journal, published in New York. In a book-case were a number of works dealing on occult subjects, which bear evidence of considerable use. He came here early in the 60s, and has always lived on his home stead, which bears U. S. Grant's signa ture and was dated in May, 1870. This act was no surprise to some of bis friends. A couple of weeks ago be told a visitor that he would not live much longer, but as his health was not in perfect order, it was surmised that he meant merely a natujal death. Last Tuesday he gave Mr. Eaton the address of his brother in Wisconsin, and the tragic act explains the reason for this precaution. In compliance with liis request, de- ceased will be buried at Mud Bay to-morrow afternoon, and his broth er has been notified of the sad event. Superior Court.

A powerful combination of plays and play ITS comes to The Olympia Theater, Monday night, Sept. 17th. when the company headed by Law rence llanloy and George Osbourne will appear. These two gentlemen standing in the highest ranks in their profession and their appearance in this city should certainly be one of the events of the coming season. Mr. Hanley was for many years the lead ing support of Booth and Barrett and shared with those distinguished artists their many triumphs. As a star Mr. Hanley has been conceded to he the coming actor of the age. In "An American Girl," the part gives him an opportunity to show his wonderful versatility. It is full of bright and witty lines and refined comedy and there are many scenes also that touch the heart, so that tears and laughter are equally blended. The story is simple vet affective. A young Eng lishman falls in hue with a pretty! American girl at her home in the " < atskills ' and they are secretly mar ried. Soon afterwards pressing busi ness calls him to New York and he i finds that he is compelled to return to England. He writes his wife to thai efh'ct anil proceeds on his journey. A I jealous former lover taking advantage ! of the situation forces his attention , upon the young girl. She repulses him and in revenge forecloses a mort gage upon tier mother's house leaving them penniless to tight their way in the world. The girl's husband had married lier under an assumed name, fur family reasons. His letters to her are returned to him as she has left the old homestead. While she cannot communicate with him, owing to the fact that lie lias again taken his real name of which she is unaware. The story of her struggles in the world is told by the author in a masterly man ner. And enables him to draw charac ters of a powerful and artistic kind. The young wife and her children find their way to London to search for the missing husband. He in turn has vainly searched for the missing wife. The manner in which they meet de spite all complications, is shown in the play in one of the prettiest scenes ever conceived by an author. The com pany supporting Messrs. Hanley and Osbourne, is a very powerful one:— including Editti Lemmert, Helen Ma son, Ada Lcvick, Josephine Gassman, and Mary Hilford, Messrs. Fuller Claf lin, Alfred Roland, Lander Stevens, Harry Nelson, and two clever children, Nina Cook and Gus Levick, Jr. The City Council. This body met Wednesday night and was addressed by General Hazard Stevens and A. A. Phillips, receivers for the Olympia Light and Power Co., concerning the lighting of the city for the coming year. General Stevens read a statement, showing the amounts paid in other cities for elec tric lighting. At the present time the price paid is $11.50 per month for 4(1 arc lights. The Fire, Light and Water Com mittee was directed to prepare a re port regarding the number of lights necessary for the coming year. The Council received a bid from Chas. Koppler, offering to move the city hall three feet to the east, for f555. The building now stands partially on the property of Mrs. Dolan. The request of J. R. Mclntyre, for permission to fence the Westside park for cow pasturage, was denied. The Committee on Streets reported the cost of graveling the south end of Main street, at $84.12. THE DOG-POISONER AROUND. —There is vengeance laid up against the dog poisoner, if he can be found. Several valuable dogs have been mercilessly slain by somebody who has a spite against some dog in particular, or the whole canine race. If the former, a manly way would be for him to take his spite out on the proper dog, and if the latter he is a crank, and deserves severe punishment. One of the vic tims this week, was a large English hound, belonging to Mrs. Josephine Brown, of Maple Park, a harmless dog seldom from home, and a great pet of his mistress. When she learned of his fate her grief was as great as if she had lost a dear one of the human fam ily, and its manifestation caused a tear of sympathy to stand in the eye of many witnessee. Let us hope that this indiscriminate method of revenge may be stopped. There is no pet that is more loved and loving, than that emblem of fidelity, the dog. DEATH OF A NOTED CHARACTER.— Thomas O'Gara, or "Tom Brown," as he was known by " for short," died at the poor farm, in this county, Sunday, of heart trouble. He was a native of lowa, 68 years of age, and had been a resident of this city for the past forty years. He was a shoemaker by trade, and in his early career, earned a live lihood by steady work, but he became dissipated, and in time a public charge. He was übiquitous in his habits, and was here, there and every where, almost at the same time, and became a great bore to friends, to whom he was constantly enfolding some plan by which he hoped to se cure unlimited wealth, that he was shunned by them, and finally became a mendicant and later on a county charge. Tom was buried in the Catholic cemetery on Bnsh Prairie, Tuesday. BICYCLE PRIZES.

Bag* Sold for a Higher Prlre Tliau the Law Provide* and to Partle* Out of the Slate - Washington ton Karint-r* Robbed Banker* and .tlerehant* "Stand In" With the " Peu" Ring. The Seattle Telegraph becoming aware aome time ago of the existence of rumors of unlawful management of 1 the State Penitentiary, sent a repre sentative to ascertaiu the truth or falsity of such reports. Yesterday's I issue of that enterprising journal con tains a full account of its agent's in vestigatious, and he places before the I public information which Gov. McUraw I promised to obtain many months ago, I but has given the usual reasons for delay, probably to place investigation, if one is made, at a time when it may not embarrass his party's efforts at the polls. At least no action has been taken by the Executive, and as his whole time is taken up in downing Squire's aspirations for return to the U. S. Senate, there is no probability that an effort will he made till after November 6th, if then. The more serious abuses, says the Telegraph representative were con ceived and horn in the penitentiary jute mill which was hailed as a great boon for the down-trodden farmer and wheat-grower of Eastern Wash ington. And so it would be if honest ly managed. But as it is conducted now, it is only a scheme for the shrewd speculator, the irrepressible middle men and dishonest officials and poli ticians, to rob the wheat and grain producers. That such is being done and done in the most brazen manner must be apparent to all as this story unfolds itself. "From the jute, which is purchased with money especially appropriated by the legislature, grain sacks or bags are manufactured. For this and like purposes the legislature of 1893 passed an act setting aside $50,000, to be known as the permanent revolving fund The law, which is to he found on pages 212 and 213 session laws of 1893, especially provides that these sacks or grain bags shall be sold for cash to actual consumers who are resident of the State of Washington. It also sets forth that the officer or officers of the State penitentiary who have knowingly violated these pro visions are guilty of a misdemeanor, and that they are subject to fine and removal from office. " But in face of these direct and special instructions from the legis lature to the prison officials it is a fact that during the months of July and August of this year, grain and wheat sacks manufactured in the State peni tentiary were sold by no less than five leading business houses and two banks of Walla Walla. The law has been doubly violated in that sacks were also sold to residents of Oregon. Probably half the wheat raised this year in Umatilla county, Oregon, was sacked in bags manufactured in the Washing ton State penitentiary. " The outrage is the greater from the further fact that the speculators and middlemen charged the farmers 8 and 8.1 cents per sack, taking their notes drawing 1 per cent interest per month, when the penitentiary price was fixed at C$ cents. Why several hundred thousand penitentiary grain bags got into the hands of the Walla Walla bankers and business men this year and were placed on the market at a big profit, while farmers were unable to gel sacks at tlie ponliemtaTy, is a question which Warden Coblentz and the board of directors should be called upon to answer instantly. During the last days of July, over 600,000 grain sacks are reported to have disappeared from the Peniten tiary. One of the directors made the statement, on a Friday of that month that there were that many bags on hand at the " pen," and on the fol lowing Monday, when a farmer called at the penitentiary with his money to purchase sacks he was told that the supply had been exhausted. In the nature of things it would have been impossible for that many hundred thousands to have been sold in three days to farmers. On the contrary, they were hauled away from the penitentiary in dray loads, one Walla Walla specu lator receiving as many as 90,000 sacks. The object of the law is clearly to protect Hiid benefit the farmers of this State. It is to prevent just what has been done, the placing of the product of the jute plant in the hands of spec ulators and afford a margin of profit to middle men in the price exacted from farmers. To prevent this, the law provides that the sacks shall be sold only to actual consumers at the cost of manufacture, which is 6£ cents, and it is made a misdemeanor to sell sacks to any other parties or at any other price. Notwithstanding this Washington Penitentiary sacks have been sold during the past summer by the Schwabacker Bros., Malhoit Bros., Wm. Jones, First National Bank, the Baker Boyer Bank, Washington Loan and Trust Co., aud the Pacific Coast Elevator Co., who sold them to Ore gon producers or anybody else who would buy, and charged our State "Only the Scars Remain," Says HENRY HUDSON, of the James Smith Woolen V Machinery Co., M Philadelphia, ■j - Pa., who certi- J fies as follows: " Among the many tcstimoul als which I see in regard to cer- medicines KM cures, cleansing K^J the blood, etc., none Impress me more than my ■flown case.

BOX 396. farmers as well as others eight cents for them, one and one-half cents in excess of the State price for actual producers of the State—and all others were barred at any price. In other words, a trust has been instituted un der the directiou of Warden Coblentz, which makes a 16 per cent, profit from the farmers of the State, upon the product of a plant owned and ope rated at the expense of the Stale. The representative discovered innumerable instances in which the law had been violated, in the sale of sacks to people outside the State—in fact the law was made a complete nulity under the management of the ring. The profit thus realized by the ring is no small sum, and it is impossible now to tell all who may not be in terested in the " whack up" at the end of the season. It may reach those higher lliau the Penitentiary warden and its Board of Directors. It may serve as an electioneering fund for the combine for the U. S. Senator ship, as Levi Ankey, President of the First National Bank, has been in the deal, and it is reported that he has made $60,000 out of the Pen. within the past twelve months.
