FRAIL COOPER Deserts His Wife and Large Family FOR A WORLDLY WOMAN LISTENED TO THE CHANT OF A MEXICAN SIREN His Wife Follows Him Dp and Causes His Arrest for Adultery—A Doctor's Predicament Dr. J. F. Cooper, a veterinary surgeon, from Santa Pauls, finds himself in an unpleasant predicament. He was ar rested yesterday morning on a charge of adultery and now reposes in the city jail, awaiting settlement of the affair. The complaint was sworn out by Coop er's wife, who claims she has been ne glected, mistreated and deserted by her husband and the father of her nine chil dren, who lavishes his affections upon a woman of frail character, a Mexican by the name of Juanita Cohn. Cooper and his wife lived for several years on a.n eighty-acre ranch near Sanita Paula. The husband, however, has spent the greater portion of his time in this city for the past two or three years, presumably in the pursuit of his profession, but apparently, as recer.t developments would indicate, principal ly looking for a gay time. At different times he stopped at the Natick house and the Ramona hotel, and was known at both places as an erratic boomer of alleged mining schemes. His last visit home was made nearly ten weeks ago, and it was about that time when his wife began to grow sus picious that her husband had been un faithful to her. When he returned to this city Mrs. Cooper made some in quiries into his conduct and became convinced that her suspicions of his in fidelity were correct. So strong was her conviction that she decided to set about to gain positive evidence. To this end she got together what money she could and started for Los Angeles with five of her children, leaving the rest on the ranch. When she arrived here about two weeks ago Mrs. Cooper rented a room at a lodging house at 742V' 2 South Spring street. She had little difficulty lr locat ing her husband ar.d learned that he was living in a respectable lodging house on Hill street with a Mexican wo man whom he passed off ashisWife. The descriptions given of the woman were not such as would tend to raise the out raged wife's estimate of the taste Cooper had shown in lavishing his affections upon. her. In the first place, she was said to be addicted to the morphire habit and absolutely innocent of any degree of beauty, education or refine ment. Mrs. Cooper decided to see the (woman and If possible confront the guilty pair while they were together. A few days after her arrival Mrs. Cooper one morning went to the Hill street lodging house. She gained ad mittance ar.d proceeded directly to th-. room occupied by Cooper and his par amour. Mrs. Cooper did not wait to b> lnvited inside but stepped into the room at once. She saw al! that F-he expected and enough to prove everything that sh- had heard relative to her husband. Infidelity. Senorita Juanita Cohn had Just got out of hed to dress and was clad in her somewhat abbreviated night clothes. Cooper had completed his toi let and was ir. the act of preparing some tea on an oil stove for the woman. Mrs. Cooper looked first at her hus band and then at the woman with whom he had been consorting, and then she found her tongue. She rolled off a piece of her mind in such tones that the landlord was attracted by the disturb ance and came in. An explanation was made and Cooper and the Mexican woman were ordered to take their immediaate departure. Mrs. Cooper prevailed upon her husband to visit his little ones at tb9 lodging house in the hope that his sympathy for them might induce him to cast off the Colin woman and come back to them. She had misjudged the man, however, for after fondling his little ores for a little while, he left. When his wife next inquired for him he was not to be found. By this time Mrs Cooper had given up hope of reclaiming her husband and set about again to find him with the inten tion of bringing him to justice. She did not employ a detective but tramped the streets herself night and day trying to again locate the pair. Finally she found that they hadgone to a lodging houseat the corner of Commercial and Main streets, and were living together in a room. At 12 oclock test Wednesday night she visited the place and found them together. They were eating ta males at the time and had not yet re tired. Mrs. Cooper again reproached ber husband, and as he showed no signs of repentance came to the police station and reported that he was living in. adultery with another woman, and asked to have an officer sent down to arrest him. She was told that she would have to come again the next day and swear to a complaint, as a warrant would be npcessary before any arrest could be made. The following day the complaint was Issued and the warrant was placed in the hands of Officer Ben Robbir*. who made a visit to the Commercial street lodging house and found that Cooper and the woman had departed during the night. No one knew where they had gone. Since then the police and detec tives have been on the lookout for Cooper. Robbirs found a third party who knew the man whom he was looking for and had seen him on the street. This party was able to arrange a meeting yesterday morning with Cooper at the corner of Temple and Spring streets at 10 oclock and the officer was on hand to gather In. his man when h* showed up. Cooper was taken before Justice Mor rison yesterday afternoon and ar raigned. His bond was fixed at $500, which he was unable to give, and he was taken back to Jail. When seen there by a reporter he had very little to say, claiming thet he was innocent and that the charge bad be-en trumped up against him by designing etjemles. Mrs. Cooper visited her husband in Jail and they arranged between them selves to settle tbe affair without furth er prosecuting the charge. Cooper —read to, transfer to bis wife a quit claim deed to all their property, consist ingof two tractsof land near Santa Paula of 80 acres and 40 acres respectively, probably worth JIOOO. She will apply for a divorce, which will not be con tested. The arrangement was com pleted last night and the papers will be filed this morning. Mrs. Cooper will then return home with her children. , THE LABOR CONGRESS Called to Order and Addressed by Debs CHICAGO, Sept. 27.—About two hun dred delegates from various izationsattended the National labor con ference called by the St. Louis labor con vention. President Debs of the Social Demo cracy explained the object of the confer ence and appealed to the delegates to work together toward the amelioration of the present condition of the laboring classes. "Strikes do not pay," he said. "They are useless and are caused by the em ploying classes. Never in my experience have I seen a strike which had the sym pathy of the public and part of the em ploying classas the recent miners' strike, yet when an appeal was made for finan cial aid, less than 7 cents per striking miner was received. The various labor unions have all they can attend' to and lake care of their own men." President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor was severely criticised for asking members not to attend the meeting. MRS. JENKINS IN JAIL SHE "NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD COME TO THIS" And Really She "Is as Innocent as a Babe"—Will Be Examined Thursday Mrs. Mattle Jenkins, arrested in. San Francisco last Sunday on a charge of obtaining $1000 by false pretenses from Dr. H. Bert Ellis, was brought back here yesterday afternoon by Deputy Sheriff White. The officer left the train with his precious prisoner at River station and 'took a hack to the courthouse, where Mrs. Jenkins was taken immediately be fore Justice Young and arraigned. Her bond was fixed at $1000 and the prelimin ary examination set for Thursday at 2 oclock. Mrs. Jenkins telephoned from the sher iff's office to Attorney Frank F. Davis and requested him to take charge of the case. As she sat in the office the woman presented a picture of dejection. She was gowned in a biack traveling costume and wore a black hat covered with black os trich plumes. Her face, which was pro tected by a light veil, showed what she has suffered since her arrest. Her fea tures were worn and her eyes were red. showing unmistakable signs of copious tears. Mrs. Jenkins had very little to say to the reporters who approached her and referred their inquiries to her attor ney. When aeked, "Will Mr. Jenkins come to your assistance?" she simply re plied, "I am not at liberty to say any thing about Mr. Jenkins' w hereabouts." When Mr. Davis arrived he had a long conference with his client, but declined to make any statement in regard to her case. At the conclusion, of the interview he did some skirmishing to find bonds men, but that apparently was not an easy task, and he returned at 5 oclock with the information that these were not procurable. When Mrs. Jenkins was told that no one who would go on her bond could be found and that she would have to go to jail she broke out crying and exclaimed: "Oh oh, I never thought it would come to this." She was conducted to the county jail and. placed in the « nman'9 ward. Later in the evening Mrs. Jenkins somewhat changed her mind in regard to publicity and expressed a desire to see a reporter. When the reporter called he found Mrs. Jenkins in the dingy little room which served as her cage, almost devoid of furniture and in striking con trast to the handsome apartments for merly occupied by the high-flying Jen kinses in this city. Her eyes were still redder from more crying, and she could hardly repress the tears as she bade the reporter welcome. "I am innocent of this charge," she declared; "as- innocent as a babe. But what I can least understand is why Dr. Ellis, of all people, should make such a charge against me. I have known him for years, and he knows my family. I always supposed that he was one of my best friends. I did borrow the money from him —that is true—but I expected to repay him. It was shortly after my husband lost his position, and I thought that I could get a fourth interest in Mrs. Gotthelf's millinery store with It and place myself in a position to earn my own living The deal, however, fell through, and as Dr. Ellis was east at the time I did-not repay the money, but of course I would have repaid it some time." Deputy Sheriff White stated that Mrs. Jenkins was very nervous on the way down, and did not sleep at all, but passed .the night with intervals of crying. Dr. Ellis denied that the relations be tween himself and Mrs. Jenkins had ever been intimate to the degree that she has hinted. To a reporter he said yesterday: "I never knew the woman, except in a business way. We were never on what could be styled terms of intimate friend ship by any means. It was and .is a business proposition with me. I have been done out of my money, and I pro pose to prosecute Mrs. Jenkins, who is alone responsible. I have started to see the case through, and I mean to do it." Bellamy's Condition DENVER, Colo., Sept. 27.—There has been but slight change in the condition of Edward Bellamy, the world-famous author, who is stop\i<}g here with his brother.

Sept. 27.—Ben Saber anes, aged 17 years, wa drowned in the Salinas river, two and a half miles from here, this afternoon. He was bathing with his brother Nathaniel and several other boys. Neither of the brothers could swim, and both got beyond their depth. Nathaniel was rescued, but Ben was dead when taken out. He was the son of Benito Saberanes, a wealthy rancher living near Gonzales. LOS ANGELES HERALD t TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 28, 1897 WANTED SOAP And Bought tbe Potash to Make It A GOOD EXPLANATION GIVEN OF THE BARRICADE OF SAUSAGE FACTOR? DOORS If Luetgert's Business Partner Is Not Telling the Truth He Lies Most Reasonably Associated Press Special Wire. i CHICAGO, Sept. 27.—The leading event of the day In the trial of A. L. Luetgert was William Charles, Luet gert's business partner. He explained why, as he claimed, the caustic potash in which the body ot Mrs. Luetgert is alleged to have been dissolved, was bought. According to Charles' story tbe potash was purchased as the princi pal ingredient of a quantity of soft soap, to be used in cleaning up the- big fac tory preparatory to its sale to an Eng lish syndicate. The witness said he suggested) this method of putting the factory in shape himself, and that Luet gert, acting upon the suggestion, or dered a barrel of caustic potash sent to the factory in March last. This was about the time the prosecution claims the negotiations were pending between Luetgert and Davey, the mysterious Englishman, who is sai* to have repre sented the syndicate and who borrowed something like 525.000 from Luetgert. Charles also offered an expiration of the apparent barricade by telling about a chase for rats in which a small dog was an active participant. He said the factory had. been infested by rats for some time and that an effort had beer, made to get rid of them The evening of April 30 be and Luet gert, with others, were in the basement when a terrier which belonged to the witness got after a rat. Charles, Luet gert and the others moved boxes, barrels and other obstacles to aid the dog in his chase, and the boxes and barrels were hurled, in a pile against the door. The barricade of the door was unintentional, he said, »('siliftf I Charles says besides the caustic pot ash two or three barrels of tallow, a quantity of grease and some chipped bone, which was to be used in making the soft soap, were delivered at the factory. He said that he aic>ed Odorfskl and Levandowski, two laborers employed in the factory, to place some of the stuff in the mlfTdle vat. He also saw Frank Bial out of the factory at the time. The caustic potash was put in the vat and Luetgert said he would see to the turn ing in of the steam and the boiling of the stuff. Charles said he met Luetgert in a saloon opposite the factory on the eve ring of the night Mrs. Luetgert disap peared and Luetgert said he was going over to the factory to turn, on the steam. At nine oclock the same night, Charles said, he went to the basement of the factory and found Luetgert there and the steam turned on. The mixture boiled over once or twice and splashed upon the floor, he said. The following day he visited the factory basement and saw the mixture in the vat. The tallow was In one portion of the vat and the grease or lard had collected in another part of the vat by itself. Luetgert again turned on the steam In the mixture, the wit ness said. On cross-examination by State's At torney Deenen, Charles denied he had "doctored" the books of the concern so as to show a yearly profit of $30,000. This line of cross-examination was objected to by the defense, but the court permit ted it for a time, the result being a com plete denial by Charles. He acknowl edged it was he who Introduced Promot er Davis to Luetgert, but he said he was deceived by the man as well as Luet gert. Frank Dlttler told of seeing Mrs. Luet gert wringing her hands on one occasion. It was during the latter part of April, and the witness declared Mrs. Luetgert said the business was broken up and everything was gone and that she was going away also. Witness said Mrs. Luetgert promised to attend the wedding of her daughter in June and make the prospective bride a present. Mary Simmering, the servant girl ex amined Saturday, was recalled- and stated that when she was before the Grand Jury she testified that Mrs. Luet gert was a kind and thoughtful mother because Inspector Schaack was there and threatened to punish her if she did r.ot say what she was told. Jacob Melber of Wheaton, 111., testi fied that he saw a woman at Wheaton depot at 5 a.m., May 6, who looked like Mrs. Luetgert, but not being able to describe Mrs. Luetgert on cross-exam ination he was excused. Charles Boehnke, who worked for Luetgert for sixteen years, said that Mrs. Luetgert was very depressed April 28 and threatened to leave home. Mrs. Augusta Kerch and other wit nesses testified that in April Mrs. Luet gert was very depressed on account of her husband having beer, swindled out of a large sum of money, and talked of going away. SUGAR BEETS Results of Experiments Conducted by Wilson WASHINGTON, Sept. 27.—Secretary Wilson of the agricultural department has secured an order from the postoffice department permitting the agents of the , agricultural department to attach the department frank to packages of beet sugar eeed to be sent from growers to the experiment stations throughout the country for analysis. Last spring the agricultural department sent sugar beet seed to farmers in twenty-seven states. It is now tihe intention to test the beets grown from these seeds in the various localities for saccharine strength, and it is desired that this work should be con ducted at the experiment stations. Un der the arrangements made today with the postoffice department the officials at the experiment stations will be allowed to send postal franks to all farmers to whom they supplied s. <ds, by the use of which they can send through the mails free of cost packages of beets not ex ceeding four pounds in weight. Returns have been received from some «f the experimental growths and Secre tary Wilson said today that, contrary to his expectation, the best reports have been received from thesouth rather than from the north. Beets grown In the vi cinity of Richmond, Va., give returns of from 13 to 18 per cent of saccharine mat ter and from the Pecos valley, New Mex ico, from 18 to 22 per cent. In Europe an average of 13 per cent is considered large. It ls Mr. Wilson's intention to distrib ute twelve tons of sugar beet seed next spring. Heretofore all the seeds dis tributed by the department have been procured in Europe. The growers- in Utah have promised three tons this year and it is expected that other localities In the United States will furnish part of the supply next year. The Last Spike TRAIL. B.

BLOODY WORK Done by a Fiendish lowa Farmer MOTHER AND SIX CHILDREN MURDERED WHILE LYING IN THEIR BEDS The Crime Completed by the Suicide of the Murderer—A Trivial Cause Assigned Associated Press Special Wire. CARROLLTON, la., Sept. 27.—The slaughter of a mother and her six chll aren occurred at the home of John Boeckcr, a farmer living eight miles northwest of here, last night. Boecker, the fiendish husband, com pleted his bloody work by sending- a bullet Into his own head, inflicting a fatal wound. The family were prosperous Germans, and as far as is known, had lived hap pily. No motive for the tragedy has been disclosed. Eoecker's victims are his wife and these children: CAROLINE, aged 14. CHRISTINE, aged 9. HENRY, aged 8. LIZZIE, aged 6. JOHN, aged 3, and an INFANT. All are dead but Henry, and the latter cannot recover from his wounds. Boecker's brother, Henry, who lives about twenty rods away, went to the house at 9 oclock this morning and was the first to know of the tragedy. Boecker. with his wife and baby, slept in a back room and. their corpses lay on one bed. The wife had been shot in the neck with a shotgun which stood in the corner, the baby had shot and its head crushed with the butt of a re volver. The man, still breathing, had a bullet hole high up on the forehead, and by his side was a sixshooter with two chambers empty. Upstairs Henry and Lizzie lay on a bed with bullet holes In their heads, the latter dead, the boy still' breathing. In the opposite corner of the same room, Caroline, Christine and John were dead, each with a bullet hole in the forehead, though Caroline had' two. Late this afternoon the bodies were still untouched, the sheriff and coroner being occupied In arranging for the in quest. It Is undoubtedly a caseof murder and suicide. Al! but two children met in stant death, for the blood clots were un der the head and they lay as calmly in repose as if in sleep. All except Henry, who is not yet dead, were attired in night robes.

It ls now recalled that Boecker had since then practiced target shooting. Boecker was 34 years old and for over twenty years had lived In the came neighborhood, In fact on the same farm. He had been regarded as a prosperous farmer, and only recently bought a 200 --acre farm a few miles from the old home stead. Yesterday he attended Catholic serv ices with his family. he was visit ed by a neighbor, who says that when he left the Boecker home in the evening they were seemingly a happy family, and not a premonition of the awful tragedy enacted a few hours later was given by Boecker or anyone of the household. Members of his father's family say he had no family troubles, his financial affairs were In good shape, and they can assign no motive for the terrible crime. On the other hand, It Is said that John had disagreed with the old) folks and Henry over the occupancy of the farm on which John, lived, and this is as signed by some as the cause of the trouble which culminated in murder and suicide. PALE PINK POPLIN Tho Old-Fashioned Fabric Is Fashion able Again in the Delicate Tints There can be no doubt that the poplin gowns worn in Dublin by the duchess of York will do much to revive the fashion for these most useful and delightful fab rics. Good silk Irish poplins are obtain able nowadays in all the palest and most delicate tints imaginable, as well as those sober tones of chestnut brown, moss green and silver gray, In which, at one time, they were chiefly worn. A very dainty evening gown, for in stance, can be made in pale pink poplin with flounces of pink chiffon on the skirt, and an accordion-pleated bodice of chif fon over poplin. Tile short sleeves should consist merely of a single chiffon frill, and at the waist there might be a band of apple green satin ribbon, tied with big bows and long sash ends at the back. Such a gown aa this would outwear at least three ordinary satin dresses. In fact, as an Irish lady once said, with rather more than the usual Irish in- consequence, "You can wear a poplin gown forever and have it made into a petticoat afterwards." Irish lace, too, was never more In vogue than at the present moment, and many of the smartest afternoon gowns at the French watering places, as well as at Homburg and Marlenbad, are ar ranged with complete coat bodices of Irish lace. Another very charming style of gown Into which Irish lace ls introduced with excellent effect ls made in shot blue and green taffetas, with four wide bands of lace Insertion passing round the skirt, covering the space be tween the waist and the knee. Between each band of Insertion there are four or five very fine tucks of silk, while from the knees downwards the skirt consists merely of a deep full flounce of silk which sets out very smartly from the cunningly stiffened foundation beneath. The insertions, by the way, are laid over pale pink silk, so that the design of the lace shines out like carved ivory upon this delicate background. The pouched bodice is covered entirely with bands of insertion, crosing the figure horizont ally back and front, and alternating al ways with the narrow tucks of blue green taffetas. The sleeves are treated in a similar fashion and finished with a scarcely percentlble fullness on the shoulder. This gown ls very suitably completed by a full cravat of lace, fast ened here and there with Jeweled pins, and a collar band and waist belt of blue and green shot taffetas.—Pall Mall Ga zette.
