Would Have Become Mother.
BOSTON, Oct. 21.—HaggaVd, and
with his nerve gone, Clarence Virgil
Richeson, pastor of the fashionable
Emmanuel church at Cambridge, now
accused of the murder of his former
sweetheart. Avis Linnell, is today from
his cell helplessly watching the auth
orities unearth facts which seem to
connect him more closely with the
crime. The police say he wanted the
girl removed because she was an
obstacle to his marriage with Viola
Edmands, heiress to half a million dol
lars.
An autopsy has revealed that Avis
Linnell was about to become a
mother.
Insanity will probably be the min
ister's plea if his guilt is proven, as
his friends assert that he has shown
signs of unbalanced mentality.
Avis Linnell's reputation was abso
lutely blameless until she met the
minister. She was a leader in her set
at Cambridge, and was active in
church work, through which she came
In contact with Richeson. It was
through this work that there came the
friendship which ripened into love.
Mrs. Linnell, mother of the dead
girl says she is convinced that the
minister is insane.
Richeson remains taciturn. He has
drawn intirely Into a shell.
Miss Edmands is prostrated. Her
father said today that the family
would stand behind the minister un
til he was proven guilty.
Chain is Complete.
Boston, Oct. 21.—Evidence which he

earthed here by Chief Inspector Dug

Avil Linnell who told him Avis

in the chain of circumstantial evi

JUDGE'S POWER
STILL PEOPLES'
NEW YORK, Oct. 21.—Theodore
Roosevelt did not keep silent as was
expected. He spoke at the civic forum
last night and declared that he be
lieved "we have been wise in giving

WEIGHT OF VETERANS
W. S. C.'S STRENGTH
Weight and a veteran team won for
Washington State college yesterday;
other interpretation can be put up
the plucky fight put up by Idaho
against almost overwhelming odds.
Time and again Washington's weight
carried the ball through dragging with
it the lighter Idaho players for more
yards than one.
Idaho's line was reversed the usual
practice and was more brilliant than
the backs. Out-weighed 21 pounds
per man, they fought with every ounce
in them, and the changes which Wash
ington was forced to make in its line
shows the effective work of the
'Varsity. Not that that affected Wash
ington. There was plenty of material
and Washington's game was consistent
all through.
Idaho's backs did not show as well
as in former games. Perkins was
good at quarter, although experts be
lieve he should have attempted the
forward pass more often when play
ing in Washington's territory. Kennl
son played a remarkable game. His
punting was all that could be desired.

punts caused by high passes it aver

In all Idaho played a fine game
against great odds. Laird and Clark
of W. S. C. are believed to be the best
tackles in the conference. Keenholtz
is a fast man, and there were others.
Idaho' ends were a little slow in
getting down after the punts, but they
played for everything that was in
them.
Idaho's team has but three veteran
players, but it has the making of a
football machine, and gives great
promise, as it will be together next
year at least.
The following is the summary of
ground covered by the two teams:
First quarter:

2 yards.

110 yards; carried 23 yards; forward
pass, 7 yards. Washington—Punts, 67

of Inez Brooks, who is white, and
who had forsaken Williams and sought
refuge in the Mullings' home He and
the Brooks' girl had been living at
Cascade, a small mining town. The
Indian followed her to Mooretown, and
asked to see her. Then he sneaked
around to the kitchen, shot the girl
and then the others of the family.
Dr. Mullings then grabbed a revol
