SEIVER LARSEN WOUNDED DV
MASKED ROBBER LAST NIGHT
Seiver Larsen, one of the proprietors of
Trommald"n pharmacy, 1555 South Tacoma
avenue, was shot in the abdomen and
fatally wounded about 8:30 o'clock last
night, by a robber. He now lies at St.
Joseph's hospital, hits life slowly ebbing
away, and a man giving the name of
Burke is locked up at the police station,
charged with th c crime.
Two friends of Larsen, Henry Meland
and Richard, Brown, hail come into the
•' store early, in the evening to visit with
him, and were sitting in an office in the
Lartsen and Brown were, /scuffling in a
friendly way and went out of the office
into the room back of the prescription
case, where they would have more room.
They continued to scuffle there, and while
they were so engaged some one entered
through the front door, and passed behind
the counter to the back room. The next
instant Larson and Brown. were startled
by the command 'Hands (up." Both men
, looked ,up and saw. confronting them a
, v man wearing a bjapk handkerchief over the
lower part of his face and, holding.) a re
. "reiver in his right hand. , ■
■'• Being bo early in the evening, Larsen
thought it was some friend trying to play
<• » joke on them, and made a jump at the
intruder. They grappled and had'wmffled
to a point opposite the end of' the pre
. scription case when the robber placed the
Viiwzzlc of the revolver against Larson's
Abdomen and fired. .The bullet passed
through his body'and lodged- in the wall.
When the shot was fired Brown realized
the true state of affairs and started to go
( out for help. As he passed the robber
struck at him with the revolver, but
AH this time Larson, with the blood
streaming from his wounds, was trying to
hold his assailant, and was struck over
the head with the revolver and stunned.
The robber then hurriedly left the store
and ran down the street.
During the time the men were scuffling
Meland sat in the office, unconscious of
what was going on. When the shot was
fired ho started lor the front room, and
got there just as the robber was leaving.,
Although so terribly wounded, Larsen
kept his presence of mind and started for
the telephone to call the police, leaving
a trail of blood on the floor from where
the shooting took place to the telephone.
He- called up the police station and then
asked Meland to call the officers. He
then sat down and tried to unfasten his
clothing to see how badly he was wounded.
He insisted on going to his room and
walked upstairs unassisted. There his

The Japanese forces are maintaging or
der in Korea. The tililgTllH does not give
the reasons for the Russian minister's de
parture. Minister Rayasbi says it is pos
sibly due to the rebuff which Havloff re
ceived regarding the question of the dis
posal of the Russian marines who were
taken prisoners after the sinking of the
cruisers Variag and Korietz.
The telegram also says that Havloff, in
addition to being accompanied by members
of the legation, had as company all of the
Russian residents of Seoul. The Japanese
troops, after escorting them to the station,
furnished a military guard on the train
from Seoul to Chemulpo.

WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 13.—The
following explanation of Secretary of State
Hay's circular note sent to the powers
was made public this morning:
"After some preliminary exchanges of
views between this government and other
powers interested in Chinese matters, the
department of state on February 10 sent
the following instructions to American
representatives at St. Petersburg, Tokio
" 'You will express to the minister of
foreign affairs the earnest desire of the
government of the United States that in
the course of military operations which
have been begun between Japan and Rus

impaired, and in all ways possible its ad
ministrative entity shall be respected by
both parties, and that the area of hos
blood-soaked clothing was removed and
Drs. E. M. Brown and Parker, who had
been hastily summoned, dressed the
wounds temporarily. Larsen was then re
moved to St. Joseph's hospital.
The police arrived at the drug store in
a few minutes after they were notified and
made a careful search of the neighborhood,
but found no trace of the man.
A short time later Chief Fackler and
Officers Sipe and Murphy arrested John
Burke at the Commercial house, 1522%
South C street.
Shortly after the shooting a man an
swering Burkes description attempted to

When Burke was arrested he had on the
hat lost by the peddler, and had a black
handkerchief in his pocket.
This morning Burke was taken to the
hospital and identified by Larsen. Cor

A telephone message from the hospital
this afternoon stated that L<arsen is very
low. He keeps growing weaker all the
time and the physicians give no hope for
his recovery. The bullet made 12 perfora

The crime was one of the most cold

occurred in Tacoina, and to all appear
ances was deliberately planned. A man
answering Burkes description was seen
watching the store fully half an hour be
fore the shooting occurred.
