A WANT AD
IN THE HERALD WILL FILL THE WANT VOL. XLIII. NO. 162 PRAYER IS THE MEDICINE Sad Death of a Young: Mother at Whittier HER HUSBRND H CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST He Refuses to Summon Regular Physicians to Help Her SHE DIED A RAVING MANIAC The Quack Who Attended Her Refuged Medicine Dr. Campbell Will Make a Thorough Investigation Rev. Mr. Wright of the Humane Society Urged the Husband to Secure a Doctor, In Vain Last evening there died at Whittier a young woman under circumstances that Coroner Campbell will very thoroughly in vestigate today. Mrs. Ella Samis, the young wife of a blacksmith, a fortnight ago gave birth to a child. During all the agony of mater nity she had not the benefit of skilled medical attendance, nor even of careful nursing. In fact, she was surrounded by a throng of quacks, anil it was their crim inal ignorance that caused her death last night. The husband of Mrs. Sarais, a young man of meagre education, and, from all appearances, of not very great intelli gence, is what is called a Christian Scien tist, and when his wife was confined he called in a practitioner of that peculiar schism, "Dr." Cook, of Los Angeles. The poor woman was not given any medicine nor nourishing food as is neces sary in such cases. "Dr." Cook did not believe in anything of that sort. He just prayed that she might get well. Fortun ately for awhilo there were no complica tions, and at the end of three days Cook thought his patient was sufficiently strong to leave her bed and go about her usual duties. So he ordered her to get up, which she did. Hut not being of a very vigorous consti tution she was soon obliged to return to bed. In a short time puerpcrl fever set in. "Dr." Cook was again called in, and as before he applied no remedies of any sort, even at this dangerous stage of her illness. The fever, unchecked, soon made the woman mad. She groaned and laughed with the same breath. She shrieked and screamed with the pain, and all the while "Dr." Cook prayed that she. might get welt, and urged the demented woman to have faith in her recovery. Tho neighbors heard "of the state of affairs aud urged the husband to call in a competent physician. But he would not. The mother of tho young wife watched at the bedside of her daughter, but was not permitted to use even the homely rem edies that she might have applied. She, too. asked Sam is to send for a doctor, but to her, he replied "no." Several days after, Mr.Wright, the agent of the Los Angeles Humane Society was at Whittier and his attention was called to the caae by the constable of the town. With that officer he went over to the house where the woman was lying ill. Samis himself came to the door. After a few preliminary questions Mr. Wright asked Samis how his wife was. "She has been very ill, but is getting better now," was the reply. "Who is attending her?" Dr. Cook of Los Angeles." "Is he a regular physician?" "He is a Christian Scientist." "Will you allow myself and the con stable to go in and see her?" "No, sir, I will not." "But do you know that you are taking a risk upon yourself by refusing to allow your wife to have regular medical attend ance?" "Well, I will take the chances." There was a good deal more said about the matter, but Mr. Wright could not per suade the blacksmith to employ a com petent physician. During his entire conversation he was standing not over four feet from the room in which the sick woman lay. He could hear her shrieking and screaming iv her delirium. Then she would talk wildly and laugh. All this time the faith doctor was in the house praying for her and with her, but his prayers did not ease her pain nor stop her delirious screams. Samnis persisted in the determination he had expressed to Mr. Wright, and last night his wife died, and today he will have to explain to Coroner Campbell ami a jury why he kept aid from the sick woman. Mr. Wright has taken a great interest in the case, and declares that if possible he will punish Samnis through the law. "I am told," he said last night, "that there are a great many of these Christian Scientists, so-called, at Whittier. I know they are very numerous in this part of the state. I have prosecuted several of them before, and over in Pasadena 1 obtained a conviction once. The little son of a man there broke his arm. The father for a week refused to allow it to be attended to. Finally I had him arrested, and the doctors said that in another day or two the boy's arm would have to have been Cllt off. I don't know that there is any law to reach Samis, but if there is I am going to lind it." Coroner Campbell says he will make a very thorough investigation of the case. MEN THAT MAKE THINGS Another Day With the Association of Manu facturers SAN FRANCISCO, March 21.—The del egates to the manufacturers' convention held no session this morning, the fore noon being devoted to a bay excursion, in taking which those who made the trip were the guests of the Union Iron works. Henry T. Scott made all the arrange ments, providing the tug and in various other ways taking care that nothing should be wanting to insure a pleasant trip lor all concerned.

The constitution sets forth that the ob ject of the organization shall be "to en courage and assist the production and manufacture of articles for home con sumption and for export, and to aevise, consider and recommend such legislative, municipal and other measures as may seem wise and expedient for that pur pose." The constitution was adopted without change and with little delay, but the con sideration of ttie by-laws,which were read and acted on seriatim, consumed consid erable time. There was a good deal of discussion in regard to the question of initiation fees and annual dues, the fix ing of the sum to he paid as the first being finally deferred. It was agreed that the annual dues should be $X a year, pay able monthly. A. Furuseth, one of the delegates, offered a resolution declaring in favor of labor organizations, which aroused a lively discussion. Oscar Lewis spoke against the resolution and said the labor ing men were all right if let alone. The men whom the employers had to contend with were the labor "ugitutors—the men who worked with their jaws. James F. Barry upheld the resolution and contended that labor organization was as useful as chambers of commerce, boards of trade or railroad pools. The resolution was finally sent to a committee with instructions to report tomorrow. J. N. Ward read a paper on California's opportunities for the workiiiKiuan and Professor Nouman spoke on suk culture.

SHOT DEAD IN HIS TRACKS Desperado Blanck Brought to Time With Rifles IT WAS DEATH OR LIBERTY The Outlaw Fought the Officers With a Small Revolver Commands of the Sheriff's Possee Entirely Ignored and the Fugitive Fought Winchesters With a Pistol f SEATTLE, 'Wash., March 21.—Thomas Blanck, the murderer and jail breaker, is dead, shot through the head and body by the bullets from the Winchester rifles of John Shepich and Robert Crow. The encounter took place on the North ern Pacific railroad track about a mile north of Kent at 6:30 o'clock. About six teen shots were fired, and when the smoke cleared away Thomas Blanck lay a lifeless corpse and John Shepich lay with wounds in his left shoulder in the proximity of the heart. Blanck was shot through the ear, nose and, according to general ob servation, through the body. His re mains were immediately taken to Kent, together with the wounded deputy. The injuries of Shepich. *hil.' serious, are not thought to be fatal. The battle was one of the most desper ate kind imaginable and was fougut out with only ten feet separating the foes. Blanck shot twice before the deputies opened fire. He refused to throw ud his hands, and in his usual bold, blood thirsty manner drew his gun and went at it. Fast and furious was tne shooting, the two deputies firing almost simultane ously; The full story of the most desper ate of all battles with criminals that have ever taken place in this couptry was told to a Post-Intellicencer reporter by W. L* Whittemore of Kent, who saw the tight from a distance and was one of the first to arrive after the job was done, lie said: "This afternoon a report came to Kent that Blanck was penned in near Orillia. As soon as the news was heard a large number of men started for the place. For tune had it that Bob Crow and John Shepich, who carried Winchester rifles, started up the Northern Pacific track. When they were about a mile north of Kent they saw a man coming toward them down the track. They had no idea when they saw the man ajiproaching that they v/er'i going to meet the desperado and goiJtd within ten feet of him before the real danger developed itself. The stranger walked along without saying a word and finally Crow and Shepich called to him: 'Throw up your hands there.' "Their commands fell on deaf ears, for the man, without further delay, drew a black Colt's 88 calibre live-shooter revol ver from his pocket and opened fire. Whang, bang, rang out the two shots from Bis revolver, and still the deputies wire unhurt. Then the men with the Winchesters commeuced pumping bullets into their antagonist. It was a regular fusillade, and not until the desperado had emptied his revolver of all its shots, wounded Shepich, and being bored through and through that the battle was over and the desperado lay on the track lifeless. Shepich and Crow had killed the Jesse James of the Pacific Northwest, Thomas Blanck, alias Frank Hamilton. "The body was taken to Kent and held awaiting the order of Sheriff Vande venter." Blanck was probably the most desperate criminal ever confined in jail here. He has killed two men within the last year, and last Sunday nig it he held up the jailer with a piece of wood shaped like a revolver and with nine other prisoners escaped from jail. When taken into court for trial he pleaded guilty to murder in the first degree and was sentenced to be hanged. After the court had sentenced him he asked that his execution be imme diately carried out. Blanck's body was brought to tbis city tonight and when the train containing it arrived at the station several thousand Seople were present. It was with great ifflculty that tbe crowd was driven away in order that the body could be placed iii the dead wagon and conveyed to an un dertaker's. The coroner and several other persons made an examination of the body and found that it had been riddled with bul lets. Three shots in the back within a radius of four inches had produced death but there were four others in his body, two of which were in his right arm, one in his ear and the other In his neck. In side of his coat and almost directly over his heart the desperado had several thick nesses of blanket in order to protect him self from the bullets of his pursurers.

She had lived here several years, but never lived in Holyoke, it is said. She registered from the latter place and signed a fictitious name, Grace M. C. Norton, on the hotel register, for the avowed purpose of hiding her identity, for she went to Boston with her mind fully made up to take her own Hie. Clara Hathaway was her maiden name. About a year ago she went to Boston, her friends understood, for the purpose of joining Rice's Extravaganza Company. There she met a wealthy manufacturer, Aich Laird of Pittsburg, who induced her to go to Pittsburg and live with him. Last August, it is said, the woman in sisted on a marriage, and a quarrel was the result.

Twenty three of these natives were sentenced to five years' imprisonment and two were given six years each. No one seems to know what action will be taken in the case of the ex-queen, who is still a prisoner in one of the rooms at the palace. The ex queen continues in good health.

Some time ago the royalty on ore from the lease decreased to a very low ligure. The company began an Investigation which ended In tho arrest of trie brotners.

HE IS NOW ON THE ST\OE Sconcbln Maloney Has Left tbe Field of Politics Huntington Has Oot Rid of Him, and He Is Now Looking Out for the Benefits In San Francisco Theaters SAN FRANCISCO, March 21. —Scon, chin Maloney, the irrepressible orator, Shakespearean spouter, etc., has entered the theatrical field as an all-around spieler. About two years ago he found his exchequer at low ebb. It was an "off" year. There was no pressing need for his knowledge of the law nor for his classio lore. Maloney hit upon the idea of get ting up theatrical performances for his benefit. His name did not grace the pos ters. Nor was the fact announced through the columns of the press. It sufficed to tell every one of his friends that he was going to bave a benefit, and he disposed of many tickets. Tbe venture yielded him a snug little sum, and he was not loth to repeat the experiment. On Monday, March 11, he again had a benefit at the Alcazar Theater and cleared a nice sum, without incurring either ex pense or risk to himself. He is preparing for another benefit in the near future at the same play house. His method is very simple. He ascertains Irom the manage ment of tho theater what night there is likely to he a short demand for seats. Having learned that he obtains a lot of tickets and starts out to sell them. The management claims that these sales do not interfere with tho regular patronage of the house, as Maloney sells his tickets almost exclusively to politicians and men in otlice, most of whom are considered "deadheads." Maloney receives one-half of the proceeds of his sales. He increases the receipts of the house for that evening and makes a handsome profit for himself.
