July Yda Addis Storke, who became noto rious through, the libel suit brought against her by the county for having written anonymous let ters attacking Dr. Winchester and cer tain women,- npw appears " before the "public in the role of a would-be mur deress. Attorney Grant Jackson, at one time her best friend, but who grained her enmity by testifying- against her in the libel suit, was the intended victim. This morning at about 3 o'clock Mrs. Stork» went to Jackson's house with the intention of "finishing him up," as she expressed it. but her attempt was un successful. She gained entrance to a. ! bedroom through the window on the southeast side of the house by cutting a screen. once in the house she sat down on a bed to arrange her plans. First she opened the hand satchel she brought with her and took out a four-ounce bot tle of chloroform, a bottle of prussic acid, and a bottle of cyanide acid and carefully arranged them on the bed. Then she selected the chloroform bot ! tle, and carrying with it some bunting. which she had in the valise, she walked cautiously into Jackson's room. The would-be murderess stooped over the sleeping form and arranged the chloroform bottle in such a. position that her arm would not tire before her work was accomplished. The piece of bunting -touched - Jackson's ' nose and aroused him. but he merely turned rest lessly on his couch" and again fell asleep. He was aroused a second time by the same tickling sensation and sat up. He saw the woman standing over him and asked: "Who are you?" "It's me. Grant," Mrs. Storke replied. "Have you a gun?" Jackson said that he had. Mrs. Storke drew a revolver from the folds of her ! dress and Jackson was commanded to hand over his weapon, Mrs. Storke say : ing she "had the drop" on him. He obeyed the command, He asked the woman what she wanted there at that time of the night. She exclaimed: "That's my business. Don't talk too loud— you will awaken the rest of the ! house." They entered into conversation and Jackson attempted to divert her atten -1 tion. He watched for an opporunity to i seize her, but she kept him covered with ; the revolver. Finally his chance came. 1 She reached for her handkerchief which la-- on the floor, and he instantly sprang upon her. They grappled. for ten minutes before Jackson overpower ed her. He tied both hands behind her back. Then he called E. Tallant. a neighbor, who summoned an officer, and Mrs. Storke was placed under ar rest. She begged Jackson on her knees not to arrest her. assuring him that she would pay him a large sum of money if he would let her go. She was taken to GREAT INDIAN POWWOW AT WINNEBAGO RESERVATION CHICAGO, July 9.— A special to the Times-Herald from Decatur, Neb., says: The greatest Indian powwow in recent years began at the Omaha Winnebago Indian reservation to-day. It is heM at Yellow Smoke's lodge, five milea north of Deeatur. A great many Indians have already pitched their tents and great preparations are being made for a two weeks' celebration. The Indians of the reservations of Northern Ne braska have been arranging for this .sreat event for months. The chief tains gave it out to th>- whites that the celebration • this year would eclipse anything attempted by the Omaha and Winnebago tribes during the last quarter of a century. The traditional rites and ceremonies of these ancient tribes will be Performed. If not prohibited by the authorities, the ' savage war dance will be indulged in as a grand finale. The chieftains say the evpnt will draw together no fewer than 5000 Indians. PRICE FIVE CENTS. f the County Jail and a warrant for at | tempt to murder was served. "When In terviewed she said: "I have nothing to say. I merely went to Jackson's room because I knew ! I would find him in a better mood and | then could talk to him undisturbed. I i went through the window because I ' have been accustomed to enter that way. as I have been in the house a number of times and at all hour's of the night. The chloroform T had with me i on account of heart trouble and why I carry the other articles is nobody's bus : mess." Jackson's story is different. During '■ the conversation at his bedside he ask j ed why sh^ was th-=>re and she answer- I ed: "I am herp to kill you and then com- I mit suicide; so don't be in a rush— ! we've both got to go." "She asked me for my pistol, which ': T handed to her," said Jackson. "I fin ally succeeded in striking up a conver ! sation and branched off on to another subject altogether. She has prowled around the house very often, but ; never seemed desperate in any way. I saw my chance to grab her. 1 tied her i hands and threw her on th<» bed and j called for Bd Tallant, a neighbor. In < the meantime she turned over, seized a revolver with both hands and discharg ed it, the bullet going through the floor. I An officer came and she was placed un der arrest." A number of persons have believed . themselves in danger since the trial for libel, and the attack upon Jackson will result in a vigorous attempt being made, to place Mrs. Storke behind the walls of San Quentin. Km. Storke was to have been sen tenced in the Superior Court to-morrow for criminal libel. When Mrs. Storke was searched at the jail she was found to have a second revolver with her.
