McPHERSON, Kans., July 6.— Miss
Maude Holmes was shot in the neck, head
and breast and fatally injured late last
night by some unknown person, who fired
a load of shot at her through the window
of her bedroom.
Young Woman Fatally Shot.
. Both Miss Watson and Leng Sing spent
the night in the City Prison. "When the
officers made the arrest they were obliged
to batter the doors down to reach the
girl and her lover.
American woman and. whose father Is a
Chinese, fell in love with Sing some time
ago and determined to wed him. Believ
ing that her parents would oppose the
match, she went into hiding with her
lover as soon as the license had been pro
cured. Sing produced two witnesses, who
swore that the girl was over 18 years of
age. Her mother claims that, according
to the American method of computing
time, she is but 17 years and 8 months.
If she were living in China she would be
19 years and 4 months. Mrs. Watson is
anxious to have the would-be husband
held for perjury, but the officers are still
in doubt as to whether they will charga
him or not.
Secretary Moody's recent . orders that
subscriptions to daily newspapers should
be stopped in all offices of the Navy De
partment, including his own, . and • that
high salaried but incompetent clerks
should be reduced and competent ones
promoted caused much comment, and hi*
consideration of a plan to discontinue the
privilege now held by naval officers of
having their families attended by naval
surgeons free of charge is also causing
The. Secretary now has under consid
eration a proposed law under which each
officer will have to serve a regular period
at sea in each grade. This, it Is believed,
will do away to a certain extent with the
obnoxious social influence by which offi
cers frequently get desirable shore berths
for long periods, thus compelling other of
ficers to stay at sea much longer than
their regular terms.
The point of Mr. Moody's policy most "
agitating the minds of officers now Is that .'
of sea service. With the President firmly ;
upholding him, Mr. Moody believes no '
olflcer should stay ashore whose work can
be dene equally well by a civilian. The
first important order was that the record I
of each officer, showing the amount of sea 3
service since his last promotion, should - ¦
be submitted to the Secretary when the i
officer came up for promotion. This or
der had its effect less than a week ago, *
when it was announced that the Presi
dent had disapproved the recommenda- ".'
tion of the examining board for the pro- I
motion of Stephen Rand to the rank of?
pay inspector. Secretary Moody found '
that Mr. Rand had not been to sea at all.
While Mr. Moody believes strongly In
the advantages presented by this scheme
he did not put it out as his absolute de
termination. He asked for comment.
With one or two exceptions the bureau
chiefs opposed the plan. They felt that it
would be unjust to place the chief of the
Bureau of Navigation on a par -with tho
Assistant Secretary, while others were
subordinate to the Assistant Secretary.
Secretary Moody withheld the. order for
the change.
The greatest change which Mr. Moody
has proposed caused a furor in naval cir
cles a week ago, when eacn bureau chief
received from him the outline of a gen
eral plan for the reorganization of hla de
partment into two divisions, one of which
•was to be that of personnel, controlling
all officers and men and all ships In com
mission under the immediate direction of
the Bureau of Navigation, and the other
a division of material, consisting of all
other bureaus under the direction of the
Assistant Secretary.
W.. WASHINGTON, July 6.— Since he
took the reins of administration from
John D. Long Secretary Moody's handling
of the Navy Department has been closely
watched by officers in all branches of the
service. The new chief of the Navy De
partment has ideas which are considered
radical. Many of these Ideas, and the
changes in the department which will ma-,
terialize if they are put Into operation,
have the hearty approval of the Presi
dent. As yet, no sweeping changes have
been ordered.

SOUTH BEND, Ind., July 6.— Mrs.
Ailene O'Malley will in all probability be
rearrested next Tuesday when she ap
pears in the City Court of Philadelphia to
answer the charge of larceny. The charge
which it is said will be placed against her
will be attempted murder. State's Attorney
Clark, it is said, has sufficient evidence
to indict the beautiful bride of the Notre
Dame critic for that crime. -Clark is said
to have discovered the fact that Mrs
O'Malley had bought arsenic at a locai
drug store a few days before Professor
O'Malley was taken ill. In company with
Frank O'Malley, a brother of Professor
O'Malley, Clark went to the Sullivan resi
dence and searched the rooms used by tho
professor and Mrs. O'Malley. Letters
were found, it Is alleged, that caused the
State's Attorney to believe that Mrs
O'Malley had been married before she
became the wife of O'Malley. Clark re

There was no explosion, and Burns pro
ceeded to the spring with the hope of
quietly driving the cows off. As he
reached there one r.ieek looking Jersey
was just in the act of swallowing the last
of the six sticks of dynamite. Burns did
not stop to discuss the matter with the
cow, but made a quick retreat to the
rear and notified the inhabitants for half
a mile around. This particular band of
cows will not be milked for some time to
come, for even their owner refuses "to go
near .them for fear of being blown up.
Possibly only one of the cows ate dyna
mite, but the determination of that deli
cate question is being carefully avoided
by those who know a thing or two about
high explosives.'
While Burns was busy at his cabin a
band of six cows, belonging to Robert
Radcliff, were grazing in the vicinity and
stepped to the spring to drink. Burns
witnessed their approach with awe and
expected every minute to hear the report
and see the cows going skyward.
Captain Lambson, superintendent of the
United States fishery, owns a gold mine
not far from the fishery. His mine su
perintendent is Charles Burns, and one
of Burns' most effective ways of attack
ing the ore bodies is by the use of dyna
mite. Yesterday morning Burns placed
six sticks of dynamite in the shade of
an oak tree near a bubbling spring. The
object was to keep the explosives cool.
Each stick contained sufficient dynamite
to blow up a band of cows and a good
part of the pasture.
These particular cows are veritable
walking infernal, machines and at each
step they make there is danger of a ter
rific explosion that would not only anni
hilate the cow but tear up things in gen
eral for hundreds of feet around.
REDDING, July 6.— There are a few

On the other hand, Receiver Lambert
says the Alert was detailed solely to par
ticipate In the ceremonies at the monu
ment and could not therefore take part
in anything else. The incident caused
some criticism at the time, but In the
success attending the celebration it was
forgotten and nothing was thought of the
matter until the town was thrown into a
spasm of fury by the publication of Gen
eral Ketcham's charges.
Last week again Major Edwin A. Sher
man, secretary of the association, who
had charge of the arrangements for the
stone-laying ceremony, was requested to
have his procession, Including the sailors
of the United States steamship Alert,
join the civic parade. Major Sherman re
plied that he could not promise anything
until the arrival of the Alert, but said
he favored having the bluejackets march
in the general parade. This, however,
was not done, the procession to the mon
ument forming at one end of the town,
while the parade formed at the other.
The local committee accuses the major
of breaking faith with them and making
another arrangement in order to show his
contempt for the city.
The accounts of Secretary Dale show
that $680 was expended on the celebra
tion. So far as any clash between the
citizens and the Monument Association
is concerned there was none, the two
bodies acting independently. The local
committee some months ago tried to se
cure the co-operation of the association
for a united celebration, but failed.
The members of the citizens' commit
tee met this afternoon and, acting on
their lawyer's advice, gave a statement
to the press, setting forth that every cent
of money used in the celebration was
collected from the residents of Monterey,
and that the committee had not had any
dealings with the Monument Association.
The committeemen pledged themselves to
fight for their rights and agreed to sub
scribe money necessary to obtain redress
in the, courts if the slander were not
"The whole thing is a lie, . As receiver
of the association I have knowledge of
all Its transactions. Laying the stones
cost $925, and this amount was subscribed
by the parties furnishing them. Not one
dime was given by Senator Perkins to
ward this ceremony. Furthermore, the
association had no dealings whatever with
the citizens' committee, . and- none of its
funds could have passed into the hands
of that body."
Members of the local celebration com
mittee, among whom are Mayor R. F.
Johnson and the most influential citizens
of the town, are furious at the aspersions
of their integrity and express themselves
as determined to begin criminal and civil
proceedings against General Ketcham
and the newspaper that printed his state
ments in case an immediate retraction is
not forthcoming. Captain T. G. Lambert
of this city, receiver of the Sloat Monu
ment Association, when seen .to-day said:

TACOMA, July 6. — General Greely,
chief of the United States Signal Service,
will leave here this week for Alaska,
where he will inspect the work on tho
telegraph lines at Valdes and Eagle City.
He makes the following statement re
garding the installation of wireless tel
egraph stations in Alaska:
"The first installation will be an all
sea route between Nome and St. Michael,
over which the American, or Fessenden,
system will be operated. The length of
this route Is about 10S miles. The con
tract requires that the system shall be
in full working order by October 1. The
second route is to.be Installed by the
American Marconi Wireless Company
between Gibbon, on the Yukon, at the
mouth of the Tanana, and Bates Rapids,
a distance of about 170 miles. It is pos
sible this system may require an inter
mediate repeating station. This, also, is
to be in working order by October 1.
"It is expected that Valdes will be
brought in telegraphic communication
with the rest of the world about Septem
ber 1. • The completion of the line be
tween Valdes and Eagle City has been
seriously delayed by the exchange of
troops now proceeding in Alaska, but the
work will go on rapidly henceforth, and
the line will be in working order within
six or eight weeks. The Una is -. being
constructed from both Valdes and ; Eagle
City as starting points, and will meet at
the center. Considerable work has been
done along the line from Eagle City, and
some distance has already been covered.
