The Youth Pulled the Qua
by the Muzzle
AND A CHARGE EXPLODED
BLOWING OFF THE TOP OF HIS
Sad Hunting Accident at Machado
Slough Yesterday During a
Carelessness with a loaded gun yes
terday caused Charles R. Drake, jr., a
promising young man, to lose his life
and plunged hlB family Into deep despair.
On Saturday evening young Drake went
to Wilmington, in company with John
R. Hallman, assistant manager of the
Norton-Drake company, and George
Henderson, delivery clerk in the same
corporation. It was their Intention to
shoot ducks the next morning.
Bright and early yesterday they
started from Wilmington to the Macha
do slough, which lies three or four miles
away, anticipating good sport, instead
of whtch shortly after their arrival at
the water one of the three almost imme
diately came to a sad end. At the
slough there was a skiff, but it wbjb not
large enough to carry all the hunters
at the same time. Consequently Hall
man ferried Henderson across first and
then came back for Charles Drake.
While Mailman was rowing Drake saw
some ducks within shooting distance
and fired two barrels at them. He then
broke his gun and was upon the point
of reloading, when he changed his mind.
"I'll take your gun," he said to Hall
man, and the latter replied: "That's all
right; take mine."
With that, Drake grasped his com
panion's gun by the muzzle as It lay in
the boat, pointing sternward, and
dragged it toward himself. The hammer
caught the seat, one of the charges ex
ploded, and the hapless youth received
the full charge of No. 6 shot right in
the forehead, an inch above the eyes.
His head was split right open, the top of
his skull blown off, and the brain oozed
out from the gaping wound over the
mangled head and into the bottom of
the boat. Death had been instantane
ous. The body was brought back to
the city yesterday afternoon on the San
Pedro train and carried to the undertak
ing establishment of Orr & Htnes, where
Coroner Campbell will hold an Inquest
at 10 oclock this morning. A dispatch
was sent to Tueson to the parents of
the deceased, who are well known in this
city, and they will arrive here tonight
to take charge of the remains.
Charley Drake was only 22 years of
age. He held the position of assistant
bookkeeper in the grocery and dry
goods store of Norton & Drake,rf>t 1600
--1602 San Fernando street, of which his
father, Charles R. Drake, Is president
and manager. The young man came
here a couple of years ago from Tucson,
where he was born. Mr. Drake, sr., is
one of the most prominent Republicans
of the territory and one of its pioneer
citizens, having held the positions of
postmaster of Tucson, receiver of the
land office and recorder of Pima county.

IT WAS NOT POISON
Old Joe Mclntyre's Serious Symptoms
Were Caused by Alcohol
Joseph Mclntyre, an old white-beard
ed man, was removed from the Lafay
ette, a lodging house at the corner of
Commercial and Amelia streets, by the
patrol wagon yesterday afternoon, as
It was presumed he was suffering from
a dose of poison. The old man ap
peared to be insensible when placed
upon the operating table in the re
ceiving hospital, and his case somewhat
puzzled Dr. Hagan, the police surgeon,
until the patient had been pumped out,
when it was found that Mclntyre had
been drinking too long and too much.
Mclntyre is an old soldier In re
ceipt of a monthly pension of $12. He
was a sergeant of the First artillery,
N. T. V„ during the war. Until lately
he has been an inmate of the Soldiers'
home, near Santa Monica, but he left
there about two weeks ago to undergo
an examination by a lunacy commission
In the superior court, because he be
lieved that there was a conspiracy
against him in the home to place poison
In his food. Other erratic notlone of
the veteram had rendered him an object
of fear to his barrackmates. When ex
amined he admitted that he had had such
delusions, but that they had left him.
As there were no further signs of aber
ration of mind to be detected In the man,
he was discharged upon his promise to
go to San Francisco, where he claimed
to have friends. Instead of doing so,
he has been drinking Immoderately and
may yet have to be committed to High

Sentous Street School Punishment
Superintendent of Schools Foshay will
make a report at tonight's meeting of
the board of education concerning the
charges of cruelty against Misses Gar

street school. The facts of the punish
ment of Seward Long last Wednesday
afternoon, as related In yesterday's
Herald, have excited much public com
ment, and the board of education will
probably order a thorough investiga
tion of the whole affair. C. C. Davis,
president of the school board, was seen
by a Herald reporter yesterday, but
stated that the facts had not yet been
officially brought to his knowledge.

Curious Developments In
the Creede Will Case
MARK L WHITE'S DEPOSITION
CONFESSES TO ATTEMPTING TO
BLACKMAIL BOTH SIDES
George S. Vandever Also Explains
How He Lost the Wife Who Af
terwards Became Mrs. Creede
The contest over the will of the late
Nicholas C. Creede. and the side Issues
arising out of It, gather Interest as time
In the first instance the entire matter
appeared to be simplicity itself, but in
this, as In other cases before the courts,
the lawyers can be trusted to complicate
the issues, and befog the intelligence of
anyone attempting to follow the devious
windings of a lawsuit.
In saying this, however, it is not in the
way of any reflection upon the legal fra
ternity, but simply that It falls within
their line of duty to open the door of the
closet where the family skeleton is pack
ed away, and expose it to the public.
When, as In the Creede case, some of the
most astute lawyers have been retained
by the several parties to the suit, to
represent their conflicting Interests it
was only to be expected that there
would be a rattling of dead bones—and
possibly live ones, too.
A couple of days ago depositions of
certain witnesses, taken In the east,
were received and filed with the other
papers In the case In the superior court.
The first In importance is that of Mark
Li. White, a brother-in-law of Mrs.
Creede, who, upon his own showing, is a
very striking example of an uncultured
and straightforward scoundrel. The
deposition of George S. Vandever Is also
of great interest, for reasons to appear
later, and the third, that of Mark
White's son, being merely corroborative,
is from the public standpoint of minor
importance and Interest.
THE MARRIAGE DENIED
When the proceedings were first begun
something closely approaching to a sen
sation was caused when Henry T. Gage,
associated with Jones T.Jones In defend
ing the interests of the estate in which
Mr. Phifer, the brother-in-law of the
deceased mine owner, has close and di
rect Interest, rose in open court and
asked leave to amend their answer to tlie
complaint. Mr. Gage stated In the doc
ument they had filed they had conceded
the marriage of the deceased Creede to
Nancy L. Creede, and they desired leave
to amend that since they conceded noth
ing of the kind but, on the other hand,
denied it. Up to that point outsiders had
considered that the defenders of the will
would contest Mrs. Creede's claim to
a share of the estate on the ground that
she had assigned away all her rights to
her husband in consideration of a lump
sum, and as it was generally understood
that no denial would be made that an as
signment of Interest had since been mads
that in itself seemed a good cause of de
fense. But the attorneys for the estate,
it now appears, were not taking any
chances nor losing any points and so the
denial of Creede's marriage was set up
and the public onlookers at once became
more interested if not altogether more
edified. It is so delightfully soothing to
individual vanity to have the peccadil
loes of others exposed that any wrong Is
condemned with a camplacent stroking
down of one's own feathers.
Shortly afterwards Mrs. Creede's dep
osition was taken and all the facts In
connection with her varied matrimonial
experiences were fully exploited. Partic
ularly was she asked with regard to her
first marriage with G. S. Vandever, and
whether she knew that he was still alive
and for how long she had been aware
of the fact. All of these and many other
questions Mrs. Creede answered and
confessed that she had never instituted
proceedings for dlvoroe against Van
During this examination of Mrs.
Creede counsel received Inspiration for
his questions from a letter which he held
in his hand, and to which he frequently
referred. Some days later a motion was
made in Judge Clark's department for
a continuance of the case on the ground
that new evidence had been discovered.
It was represented that until Mrs.
Creede' deposition was taken the de
fense had no knowledge of Vandever.
A SCHEMING SCOUNDREL
With these facts in mind, a perusal of
the deposition of Mark I* White is of
curious interest. His testimony was, in
substance, to the effect that he had
known Mrs. Creede since 1858, and that
she visited his house in White county,
Ark., just before she marled Nicholas
Creede in March, 1893. At that time he
had some conversation with her about
G. S. Vandever, a brother of the latter
being mall carrier thereabouts, and an
allusion to the fact brought about the
conversation. What actually transpired
then, and the actual schemes that were
afterwards working in the brain of the
astute brother-in-law of Mrs. Creede is
best shown by what he stated when his
deposition was taken, on cross-examina
In summarized form it was somewhat
"I am married to Mrs. Creede's sister
and resided in Mississippi during the
spring and summer of 1897. I made a
proposition to one of Mrs. Creede's at
torneys that I would keep G. S. Van
dever off the witness stand all the time
for $3000. I afterward made another
proposition that I would keep Vandever
off the stand until after the first trial
for $160. Neither of these propositions
was accepted by Mrs. Creede. If the
$3000 proposition had been accepted, I
was to have had half of it and Van
dever the other half. He authorized me
to make any terms I pleased, and did
not know what figure I was going to
make. He agreed that whatever I did
would be all right. I had not at that
time paid out $100, although I told Mrs.
Creede's attorney that I had, but I was
not under oath then, and what I said
was not true.
"When 1 moved back to Tennessee, in
September, 1897, I wrote to Mrs. Creede's
attorney yet another proposition. Be
fore the death of Nicholas Creede I re
ceived a proposal from him, and after
his decease I wrote several letters to
Jones and Weller, but none to Phifer,
and answered all their questions but one,
and told them I did not know whether
I could answer that one or not. I asked
the parties for money for such Informa
tion as I might furnish them with in
these suits, and I addressed all the let
ters to Jones and Weller, except one;
that one I addressed to Blchard Phlfer.
I wrote as many as three to Attorney
John T. Jones and to Jones and Weller,
and they were written between October
16 and December 26, 189". I understand
Jones and Weller to be the attorneys
of the estate of Nicholas Creede. When
I wrote to Mrs. Creede's attorney on
September 29, 1897. I had received a
proposition from her husband. After his
death I had no letter from Phlfer, but did
receive several from Jones. I did not let
the attorneys of Creede's estate know
of the proposition made by Creede him
self. When I made the 23000 offer to
Mrs. Creede's attorney I told him that
Creede offered me 210,000, and that I
had refused to answer the attorney's
PRICES ON A SLIDING SCALE
Intent upon blackmailing somebody,
he gave his sister-in-law, Mrs. Creede,'
the first option, for the reason, perhaps,
that he and his family having been the
recipients of her bounty for years, he
thought she might "bleed" more readily
that utter strangers would. He was
mistaken, however, for she refused to
have anything to say to him, and then
White tried to "hold up" the other side.
It will be perceived that he had asliding
scale of Infamy, and stood ready to do
dirty work in proportion to the amount
of the money paid over to him.
The assertion of White that he had
corresponded with Nicholas Creede him
self Is curiously Interesting. When the
former millionaire was taking steps to
get a divorce from his wife there existed,
it appears, a strong probability that he
would have failed to get a decree, and
from what has developed it has been
shown that Mark White was negotiating
to the end that he should furnish
Creede with evidence regarding his
wife's first marriage with Vandever, her
never having obtained a divorce, and
Vandever's being still in the land of the
living—all for a handsome considera
tion, in order that Creede might prose
cute a suit to annul his marriage.
VANDEVER AT THE WAR
As further illumining the situation,
the deposition of George S. Vandever
himself Is Important. While tha deposi
■tion of White makes it appear that Van
dever was a side partner with him in
his blackmailing schemes and was to
receive half of the proceeds, It Is said
that the facts themselves do not war
rant the assumption. He is a Campbell
ite preacher, and Is reported as being a
guileless kind of a man, involuntarily
made the tool of an unscrupulous scoun
Vandever testified that he married
Nancy L. White (Mrs. Creede) in 1868,
while residing in Wayne county, Term.
He lived with her until 1862, when he
went Into the army and served during
the war. When he returned he found
that his wife had disappeared, and It
was said she had skipped out with an
other man. In October, 1865, he applied
for a divorce, and a decree was granted
In April, 1866. In December of the same
year he remarried.
That Is the pith of Vandever's testi
mony. In the examination ot Mrs.
Creede by Mr. Gage she was only asked
if she had obtained a divorce, and not
whether her first husband had obtained
a divorce from her. If the latter ques
tion had been put, probably some time
might have been saved, and the greedy
Instincts of Mark White been checked
at a much earlier stage of the game.

McGuire's Political Dog
Frank McGuire of Brookside, Cahoon
zle, is the possessor of a highly educated
Newfoundland dog, which Is a strong
Democrat, as subsequent facts will
show. To prove the dog's Democracy,
his owner will take two pieces of meat
and say to the dog: "Now, Grover," for,
by the way, he is named after the ex
president, "this piece Is Democratic and
this one a Republican vote." The dog
always takes the Democratic piece of
meat. Various other performances are
given, such as taking a piece of meat
and telling the dog it was Friday. He
would refuse to eat It because he Is a
good Catholic. Grover Is opposed to
free lunches, and if his master tells him
that his dinner Is a free lunch he will re
fuse to eat, but when Mr. McGuire takes
some coin out of his pocket and pretends
to pay for It, the dog will then eat the
meat. He is certainly a wonderful dog.

To Whom It M oy Concern :—
This is to certify that Dr. Wong Hlra cured me
ot liver and kidney troubles. I was greatly con
stipated and my back ached so much that I had
great trouble In sleeping. When I went to Dr.
wong Him, he felt my pulse aud said my troubles
were caused by la grippe which I had several
years ago. He knew more about my system than
1 thought anyone could know. I took his medlctno
as directed, and am now well. I have gained eight
■ pounds during tho last month: eat better, sleep
1 belter and feel better In every way than for years.
I can cheerfully recommend Dr. Wong Him to the
aick. Yours truly, HAIIVEY DAVIS,
