Murderer Will Go to His
Death on Friday for
Slaying Woman
SAN QUENTIN, Dec. :..— Morris Buck,
the murderer of Mrs. Charles A. Can
field, wife of a wealthy oil operator o*
Los Angeles, will be hanged in the
prison execution chambers at 10:50
o'clock tomorrow morning.
The crime for which Buck is to suf
fer the death penalty was committed
January 27, 1906. and was one of the
most cold blooded on record.
The man expressed a desire late last
night to see his brothers, who are in
Los Angeles and who held no
•\u25a0ommunication with Ifim. It is- not
probable that any of his relatives will
witness his execution and in all likeli
hood Buck will ascend the scaffold un
attended pave by the prison officials
and Rev. Father Callopie.
Buck expresses no regret at having
killed Mrs. Canfield and seemingly does
not realise his terrible crime. Guards
It E. Kelly and Frank Clark have been
<lotas!cd on the death watch.

Scathingly Arraigned *by
Attorney for Treatment
' of Woman
Anita Forcade Weeps -as
Dentist's Brother ;
\ Testifies
OAKLAND, Dec. -s.—?eter F. '-Roller,
who said he formerly, was a detective
under William -J.. Burns) in the San
Francistio graft prosecutions, and Anita.
Forcade, reputed for years tho 'wife, of
Dr. Harry, Morton/of Berkeley, ivere
dismissed on a cliarge of grand lar
ceny made by J. R. Morton, a.brotlier
of the dentist, in the police court this
morning. During the examination Abe
P. Leach, counsel for the accused
couple, who were arrested in Seattle,
made such sensational accusations
against the complaining witness that
it seemed as though Morton instead of
Roller and the woman was on trial.
There was no direct evidence, accord
ing to Judge Mortimer .Smith, on: which
to hold tho couple;, the prosecution pro
duced a messenger boy. who was'said to
have taken tiie message from .-. Jvoller
and Anita F/jreade to " a saloonman. to
pay over $300 belngring to J. 11. -.iorton,
but the boy could -Identify.; neither de
fendant. ; !
The money was said by Morton; to
have .been stolen March Al.A 1 . Holler was
tlion in San "Francisco, and ho and the
woman left together for Seattle, 'where
Roller became a sanitary inspector in
the city government. After his dis
missal. Roller ,«aid that he hud made
an inspection of the Seattle city
and reported it in an unliealthy condi
tion, which so exasperated tho police
that he was put into a basement cell
and shamefully ill treated while await
ing the arrival of Detective McSor.ley
of the Oakland force.
On. his way, to this city Roller was
placed In a cell at Portland occupied
by Fred 'Worthington, suspected of the
robbery of the Great Northern train in
Montana last October, when more than
$14,000 was stolen. Worthington, un
der suspicion, was being sweated by
the Pinkertons and the railway . police
and made an "alleged confession \u25a0to
Roller. Now that he is free again, the
former secret service man said he in
tends to use this information In prose
cuting Worthington and his two ac
complices, who have'been ; arrestcd, and
will seek part of the reward offered by
tho Hill railroad, . : .
According to" the. Portland .police,'
Roller will be fglven . the laugh when
he claims a portion of 'the'.- reward for
having mistaken the vainglorious
boastings of a drunken man for truth.
Worthington has been released despite
his "confession," which has .been dis
proved by -. ,the, (-officials, to, whom he
made It before- Roller became- his cell
mate. ;.. \u0084'....-. .... \u0084-' ; / ;
It developed In the examination this
morning, that the money ..•which Morton
says ' was stolen 'came f rom~the | sale of
real estate in Berkeley,' in which Anita
Forcade claime'd^arcommunfty^interest.
James McVey, a saloon " keeper; testi
fied that he turned over the .money, on
an order supposed to' have come from
J. R. Morton.
Then, .when Morton began to testify
that he knew the woman. as his broth
er's wife, his arraignment began. He
was asked regarding his own relatlpns
with; Anita Forcade, and M would
answer. Attorney,' Leach "accused him
of having consorted with her .while she
was living with Dr. Harry Morton, de
clared that both brothers 'had acted in
more than an ungentlemanly manner
and affirmed that Dr. Harry Morton
dodged the issue ; by fleeing to .the
Bouthern pa.rt of the state when* Roller
was arrested.
"You -knew, did you not, that - Anita
Forcade was your^brother's wife?*' de
manded Leach. .. ' \u25a0\u0084
"I did not know that, they- were man
and wife," replied Morton.
"You knew,.' that; he had been living
with her for several'years and held'her
out, to the world as his wife?" '; The
witness replied in the affirmative, and.
Leach continued: .
"You were living at your -brother's
house, and is it not a' fact, that you at
tempted to ; get her 'to elope with you-^
that you. even went so far as to get a
trunk for her?"
Morton did not answer, hanging- his
head. > .:
"I wish to show by this witness/ "ex- :
plained Leach, "that when this . woman
refused to elope, with him and: left his
brother's house he became enraged,"
and, like the cowardly • dog that {he Is,
he had. a complaint sworn to and had
her brought back like a criminal."
The release of the prisoners '. was* then
ordered.v ; " , S
j During the arraignment of' Morton
the woman; nearly : fainted, swaying \u25a0•! in

S. rHv Buteau Testifies for
the Defense of Olive
Physician of Opinion That
Acid Thrower Is Not
OAKLAND, Dec. 5. — Dr. S. H. Buteau
testified' to day at the trial of Olive
Scully, charged \u25a0 with - the murder of
James F.Gl«»ver. "that he believed the
woman; was' insane as 4 the result of
treatment' she had received during her
llfci and that the life she' had led had
made 'it . impossible for her to' recover.
The opinion was given after a ques
tion covering several typewritten
sheets of, paper and summarizing the
events of her life had been propounded
by Attorney Walsh for the defense.
District Attorney Brown fought 'hard
to: have the question ruled out but
failed, and Dr. Buteuu was. emphatic in
his reply that. she was insane. He also
testified that the woman expected to
become a mother.
v After a severe cross examination, . In
which the prosecution failed to shake
his ' testimony, Dr; Biiteau was allowed
toga -\u25a0.\u25a0\u25a0".. . .;';
During the afternoon the prosecu
tion; recalled Jlobert Harrison" and W.
J.. McCaffery, who were lodgers at the
house at the timo the acid- was said
to, have been thrown. They gave tes
timony ..in \u25a0 rebuttal, '-tending to show
that Miss Scully had acted rationally
that day' and had shown no previous
sig'njof derangement.
The case - will be resumed Monday,

Accident on the Northwestern Pa-
cific Road Near Tomales Caused
by Defective Brakes
SAN RAFAEL. Dec. s.— Five Italian
laborers' of the ' Northwestern Pacific
railroad were seriously hurt, two of
them \u25a0 probably fatally, in an accident
to a work* tralrr,at Tomales this after
noon. More,*>than 100 workmen were
seated In various positions on the flat
cars which made up the work. train as
it >: rounded ~ the curve • below ' Tomales
station.' A defective brake caused the
train, to part half way between*; the
englne Y and',the caboose. The rear sec
tion ; came, to a sudden stop, throwing
several of the workmen to the ground.
Considerable confusion followed the
accident," .' and Engineer/ Finnic and
Conductor . Moore,, had hard work in
quieting the friends 'of the . Injured
men who apparently, in their Ignor
ance, held them responsible; for • the
wreck. -The 'injured -men were taken
to the railroad hospital for treatment.
