OAKLAND. June 23.— Although there
are suspicious circumstances surround
ing the death of Edward Slattery. the dis
charged soldier, who was shot through
the head last night io a room at the Ave
nue House, 123 San Pablo avenue, the police
are satisfied that the deed was that of a
suicide and that the dead ex-volunteer's
companion, John C. Daley, had no hand in
the killing. Daley was detained at the
City Prison in order that the detectives
nnd Coroner might have ample opportu
nity to complete their Investigations he
fore ginnery's friend could pet away.
Thy story as it unfolded to-day re
vealed the wild debauch of two boon com
panions celebrating their ditcharR^ from
the army after nearly two years cf hard
pervlcc together with the Forty-sixth
Reulment in the Philippines. Slattery.
known in Company G a? Edwin Kelley.
was mustered cut with S277. Daley left
the camp with $293. Three weeks of reck
less fioetiom and their total assnts were
the $3 or J4 that the Coroner found in
Slatteiy's pookets last night. Daley haU
not a penny.
In his cell at the City Prison to-day the
dead soldUr's chum sat in p h=ilf-stupor,
with his nerves racked by the hnrrl pace
he had been going. There was nothing to
Kive a suspicion that he had taken his
army comrade's life. Indeed, tt was man
ifest his mind was clouded and rodden
from drink, nnd with difficulty could he
collect his bewildered thoughts long
enough to reply coherently to his inter
viewer's queries. But after all h's nar
rative hung in the main facts to the story
he told the detectives last night when he
was under the influence of liquor.
Daley's statement that he went out
after the shooting to get assistance is cor
roborated by Mrs. Denlson. proprietress of
the Iodging-hou5e.
Indications Are That Edward Slat
tery Killed Himself and That
Daley Is Innocent.

The murderer recovered early to-day
from the wound that prevented him from
killing the fifth Chinese and this evening
Is being brought to Westminster.
Little is known, so far. of the cause of
the crime. There appears to have been
a standing grievance between the mur
derer and the flve men he sought to Kill,
the trouble having occurred over a Chi
nes© woman who recently arrived there.
The scene that met the gaze of the police
officers who made the first investigation
was a frightful one. There was blood and
torn clothing strewn all over the floor.'
from one end of the little room to the
other. One Chinese was dead and three
will die.
The first Chinese was killed before the
others were awakened, i The cries of the
second awakened two others, and in the
darkness they attempted a rescue. These
three men -were cut by the ax-wielder, and
are so badly injured that they will all die.
The fifth man succeded in stopping the
murderer before further damage was
done, although even he was seriously In
jured. . After a struggle he knocked down
the murderer with a board. Then- the
fifth man himself collapsed and the six
were found lying in pools of blood early
this morning by other Chinese who hap
pened to paps that way.
•VANCOUVER, B. C. June 23.-A series
of atrocious murders occurred to-day at
Ladner, a village at the -mouth of the
Fraser River, opposite Steveston, about
twenty miles from Vancouver. All the de
tails that could be learned to-night were
that a Chinese had entered a shack in
which flve Chinese laborers ' were lying
asleep. Without making any noise to
awaken the sleeping men tho murderer at
tacked first one and then another with an
Special Dispatch to The Call.

sary to accomplish this result would be the :
passage of an act by Congress and an act by

It is a prontable trade for California. Hawaii ¦

SAN JOSE, June 23.— MIhs Bertha Knrml
ley has lost her suit for $24,000 for care
and attention to Janru* T. Murphy*, the
late capitalist. Judge Hyland yester
day granted the motion for a nonsuit
made by Attorney Delmas last Thursday,
and which has be'-n argued by the attor
neys on both sldrs for the past two days.
Attorney Kowalsky took an exception to
the order of the court.
In granting the nonsuit Judge Hyland
paid no written contract in which Murphy
had agreed to pay Ml** Smalley for her
services had been proven. Such contract
as was made was simply one of honor and
reettd solely on the conscience of the ono
who made it. The court could not take
notice of th<? relations of the plaintiff and
defendant. • - - .

among the Pan-Americin diplomats here
several months ago thnt Germany would
join with Great Britain in demanding: the
neutrality of the canal, hut there Is no
likelihood of nny representations being
necessary, as the new treaty In course of
negotiation specifically provides that the

deavoring to draw up a statement of the
conditions upon which the company will
part with its canal interests to tne I nited

adopted which will enable them to re
tain an interest in the canal, but this.
*.;f course, would not be acceptable to the
United States.

Everytntaj: was «iuiet at the headquar
ters of the striking machinists. When the
returnn of" the ba!l giver, by the Brother
hood of Teamster? at the Mechanics" Pa
vilion on Saturday night are all in, some
J4*» or SSOOu will be realized. This will
«-na.bIe the machinists and other iron
¦workers to tide over a week or two longer.
It is estimated that the loss in wages dur
ing th« five weeks the men have been out
will approximate S500.0M at the lowest cal
culation. The loss of the corporations and
firms conducting the iron industries can
b* figured, considering loss of profits, the
driving away of trade to other cities and
less of Interest on plants, at more than
double that amount.
With the opening of th* fifth week of
th* strike no appreciable change In the
Fituatlor. Is noticeable. The strikers, while
hopeful, have had no definite overtures
from their former employer?, ani have
fttled down with a grim determination
ti wait for the turn in the tide they con-
Bdeatly exi*ect.
Candidates for tor.sorial diploma* are
expected to present themselves this morn-
Irr before the Barber Commission in the
Kraraa Spreckels building. Those who are
row In business will have to be registered
and pay $1. after making affidavit before
a notary as to their qualifications. I'n
rrled barbers, graduates of barber col
!»?»» and other* who aspire to the dearee
nt "tos*ortal artist" will be compelled to
pay $5. The ttsree and the diploma to
n* awarded by the commissioners will en
fh> them to practice in any parr of the
f *a?e.
':'¦ A distinction between the wholesaler,
the jobber and the retailer is strictly main
tained. The jobber occupies the position
vt middleman and supplies the larper res
taurants. It is said that from the Res
taurant Keepers" Association the order
; has come to the jobber to withhold sup
plies. In the rneanxchile the retailers will
continue to supply meat to all restaurants
fo ions as the proprietor? are in a condi
tion to meet tneir financial responsibili
ties. No action will be taken until the next
meeting of the association, which will be
held next Thursday night at the same
The striking journeymen butchers who
have not yet reiurned to their old places
met at the Turk Street Temple in order so
preserve intact their organization. Many
of them claim they have been blacklisted
en account of their active participation in
what they now name "an unfortunate and
calamitous strike."
At th<* headquarters of the Cooks' and
¦Walters" Alliance pickets reported that
tfcey had heard from the proprietors of
the union houses that theSr meat
supply would be cut off in the event
cf their not agreeing to the demands of
the jobbers. This matter was a subject
of great concern to the executive commit
tee. If decisive action should be taken to
day the San Francisco Labor Council will
Tr« called in, special session to-morrow

An Interesting controversy Is Roing on
betwetn the union restaurant keepers and
the meat jobbers which may resuU in the
closing of a number of union restaurants
tOMiay, througrh the inability of some of
them to secure necessary supplies. The
matter is that of the demand of jobbers
t!»at union restaurants cease displaying
the union card. The action to be taken
¦ concern* only the jobber* so far, leaving
the vt'ho!«sa!e and retail dealers out of the
controversy. Perhaps they may be drawn
into It In a few days.
About 30 of the members of the Retail
Boas Butchers* Association m*t yesterday
afternoon at B'nai B'rith Hall and dis
cussed the situation. While to no one au- ;
thorlzed to speak could be traced the or
lptn of the report, it was generally un
derstood that some such action would be
taken to-day. The retail boss butchers
decided, according to President Flageollet
and Secretary Larney. to await further
action before xakinc sides in the contro
versy. . -
