A MURDER AND A SUICIDE Word Comes from Winchester that Death ot Husband and Wife is the Result ol Jealous Passion Word was received here Sunday even iug at seven o'clock that there had been a murder and a suicide at Winchester, Upon investigation it was learned that j G. S. Snyder of Winchester had shot and ^ killed his wife with a revolver. After the deed was done lie turned the smok- ; iug weapon on himself and blew out his j brains. Both were instantly in the throes j of death and passed away at almost the same moment. For two years their do mestic relations have been anything but pleasant. The first rupture took place two years ago when Su j der struck his wife in a fit of passion, almost killing her. Since that time they have been parted and were reunited on account of the four children. Four weeks ago Mrs Snyder left her husband at Lewiston and went to the home of her par nts, Mr. and Mrs. C. D. King, near Winchester. Snyder was jealous of his wife, and trading bis watch to a second band store here in Lewiston for a revolver and cartridges followed her to Winchester for the avowed purpose of committing the murder, as has been gathered from threats made to acquaint ances here. He put in Thursday loafing in Culdesac, where he is well known and then went to Winchester and stopped with friends until about six o'clock, when he went to Mr. King's home and entering went to the room occupied by his wife, her mother, three of his daughters and a number of neighbors. He called his wife to another room and there shot two bul lets into her body. He then took his own life. The couple had made their home in Lewiston the past winter, moving here from Culdesac where they had bten en gaged in the hotel business. Snyder has been employed on the street works and all who knew him say that he was pecul iar and narrow but industrious. Edith, the oldest of the three orphan girls, has been waiting tables at the Bollinger house and the news came to her first. She left Sunday evening for the scene of the sad tragedy. Cornier Clyde Vassar left yesterday to take charge of the bodies. At the time of the tragedy Snyder had been drinking. He accused his wife of infidelity.

License. indiens Must Have The question having arisen as to whether or not Indians were exempt front the provisions of the new fish and game law. State Game Warden W. V. Iorns asked Attorney General John A Bagley for a ruling on the point. The attorney general holds that Indians off the reservation must obtain hunters' li cense. His opinion follows: "Indians living under tribal relations on Indian reservations under the general protection of the federal government are not required to take out a state license to fish or hunt on those reservations, but are governed entirely by the rules and regulations of the federal government and officers in charge of the Indians and reservation. "Indians who have served their tribal relations and have received an allotment of laud from the government and are re siding upon the same and ate identified as citizens and participatiug iu the privileges of citizenship they are t n. titled to, must take out a license before they fish or hunt. "I'he Indians on the Pocatello and Lemhi reservations must take out a li cense to fish or hunt outside of their re spective reservations and the permit given to them to leave their reservation by the federal Indian agent docs not en title them to hunt or fish off the réserva tioti. They must take out a license from the state game warden," lender this tuling all Indians on the Ntz Perce reservation must take out a li cense or be guilty of violating the state law.
