C. E. CLARK, OF CHICAGO,
COMMITS SUICIDE AT
Chariton, Oct. 18.—(Special).—Wor
ry over an old love affair caused the
suicide of C. E. Clark of Chicago, a
former resident of Fairfield, who shot
himself and died instantly in the home
of his former sweetheart, Mrs. Bessie
Milligan, in Charlton. Mrs. Milligan
Is silent regarding the affair, but peo
ple who knew both her and Clark think
that her refusal to wed him caused
him to resort to self destruction.
Clark has been in Chariton for about
ten days and it was understood here
that he intended going into business.
He formerly lived in Fairfield, where
Mrs. Milligan, who is a widow, knew
him. It is said that they were at one
time sweethearts, but that some dis
agreement prevented their marriage.
Clark called upon Mrs. Milligan several
times during his ten days,' residence
here and last evening he was a guest
at her home.
Woman Escapes Death.
Mrs. Milligan says that apparently
without reason-Clark, who was in con
versation with her about 10:30 o'clock,
suddenly pulled a revolver from his
pocket and Bald: "We- vill end it all
right now." Mrs. Milligan, though
frightened, soothed the man and soon
escaped from the man on the plea
that She was going for a drink of wa
ter. Sh^ ran to a neighbor's house and
summoned Night Marshal Beck. On
the officer's arrival he went to the rear
door of the house f*nd called to Clark,
who was still inside, demanding that
he come outside, dark refused but said
he would meet the marshal at the
front door. To this the officer agreed,
but while he .was going around' the
building to the front a shot rang out
inside the house and when he entered
he found Clark, dyittg from the effects
of a bullet wound, self-inflicted, in his
right temple. I., his pockets were
found five extra cartridges in addition
to those in the revolver, indicating that
he had anticipated the crime and pos
sibly the murder of Mrs. Milligan.
The body was removed to the local
undertaking rooms, where an inquest
is being held this afternoon. Clark was
unmarried. His remains will probably
be sent to Fairfield for burial.

Albia, Oct. 18.—(Special)—Harry
McLarson, proprietor of a boarding
house at the Frazier mines near Bux
ton, killed his wife and infant daugh
ter and then turned the gun upon him
self, dying instantly. The tragedy oc
curred at five o'clock last evening and
was the result of the man's craze for
drink. McLarson had been Intoxicat
ed for several days and last evening
he rushed into his home where his
wife sat with her little baby on her
lap. Pulling a revolver, quickly from
his pocket the man fired a bullet that
pierced the body of the child and
lodged in the woman's abdomen. Mrs.
McLarson, wounded though she was,
attempted to escape from the house,
but was felled by another bullet,
which ended her life. Immediately the
crazed murderer placed the muzzle of
his weapon at his head and sent a bul
let crashing through his brain. Neigh
bors, startled by the noise of the shots,
ruBhed into the hr.use and were hor
rified to see the odies of the father,
mother and child, close together on
the floor and all three beyond

Larson was in hourly fear when her
husband was Intoxicated for he had

stable to take charge of her husband
but by mistake the message read
"doctor" Instead of "constable" and
was consequently of nr* avail.

payment was made out for George

before the insurance Investigating

his father's whereabouts but without
success. He said he had not seen his

There-was-a sharp passage qf arms

Hughes Answers 8harply.
Chairman Armstrong said Beck
could make requests or suggestions to
Hughes privately or to the committee
but that the committee intended to
carry out its purpose to make life in
surance safer and did not desire to
have its work obstructed. The com
mittee wanted all the helpful Informa
tion it could get, he said.
Hughes then stated that if he had
erred at all it had been by showing
courtesy when the circumstances jus
tified other measures. "A witness who
gets himself into a false position," said
he, "has only himself to blame. Every
one will be treated a3 he deserves to
be treated and evasion always will be
held up to the contempt it always has
received." There was loud applause
as Hughes concluded.
President McCurdy was again called
to the fstand. Nothing of special im
portance was brought out except that
McCurdy was remarkably ignorant of
the vouchers drawn for legal services.
He declared that he knew nothing
about any money being expended for

Washington, D. C., Oct.*l|,
There are strong Indications that tha
Congressmen Are Busy.
From time to time during thd past
two months representatives have found
occasion to visit Washington on offi
cial business, and it appears that
nearly all of them have called on J„
K. Taylor, In his office on the base*
ment floor of the treasury department
Mr. Taylor is the supervising architect,1
the man who takes the $100,000 mors
or less appropriated by congress and
in the course of two years hands over
a federal building all ready for the cus
The congressmen wanted to know
what the outlook was for something
doing in tho public building line. On
the other hand Mr. Taylor wanted to
know the same thing. Mr. Taylor Said
he had discharged practically his en
tire force. He let one gang Of nearly a
hundred draughtsmen and clerks go
July 1, and ten more last week and
said that in a short time, under pres
ent conditions, there will be no one
in the office but himself and his mes
senger. When congress failB to ap
propriate money for public buildings,
as lt has the past two years, there la
nothing for the men in the supervising
architect's office to do and they are dis
fact that Uncle Sam overdrew hla A-1
bank account about $25,000,000 for tha
fiscal year ending July 1, 1906, will
not deter an army of congressman*
from demanding the passage of a pub-1
lie building bill at tha forthcoming
session of congress.
Practically all the work In the hands
of the architect has been completed,
and all of it in fact Is completed or
in the hands of the contractors. In
Iowa the public building at Waterloo
is about finished and ready to torn
over to the government In fact the
supervising architect has asked to
have a custodjan appointed. The cub-,
todian Is always a federal officer N
treasury official if one is located In tha

roofs of the Marshalltown and Atlantis
buildings are being put on and at Burw|

has been wiped off the slate. Tha
