■ Judge Jaggard yesterday took under ad
•risfinyrit the appeal of Mrs. Amanda
[Webber, from the probate court, wherein
she desires the will of her late husband
Bet aside and that she be allowed to come
■in for a straight third of the estate.
•While the court announced no formal de
cision, it was Intimated that the ruling
«>>' the probate court would be sustained.
i The. case is * peculiar one, and has been
Stubbornly contested on ooth sides. There '
.•was a provision in the will which stipu- ,
lated that Mrs. Weber was to receive
a certain sum of money, monthly, from
frier son, who is the only other heir, and
'"that aside from this the whole estate
Svas to go to the son.
, For a time Mrs. Webber signitied her
willingness to stand by the provisions
•* of the will, and signed a written agree
ment to that effect.
But after a time she became convinced
that the distribution of the estate was
an unfair one, and that she had not re- '.
ceived her just dues. Accordingly she.
petitioned the probate court to be allowed
<o come in for the third of the estate,
regularly prescribed by law, in spite of
he will and her voluntary ratification.
.The court holds, however, that she can
not recover to the extent of a third of
'the estate, because of the ratification,
and that the law allowed a third to the

Grant Frazier, charged with forgery on
several different counts, was arraigned
before Judge Lochren in the United States
CCtirt yesterday, and bail was lixtd by
_the court ot $3,<XW, in default of which
Frazier was remanded to the county jail.
He will be tried at the next term of the
federal court, which convenes on June 24.
Frazier was put through the "sweat
process" yesterday, but still maintains
a. sullen silence, further than to declare
his innocence. He has made m. arrange
ments for an attorney to defend him at
the trial, and the officials are of the opin
ion that he will plead g-uilty between now
nd the date of the trial.
In case that he pleads guilty it will
i ably have the effect of reducing the
sentence of Carpenter, who is now serv
ing a sentence of two years and a half
for passing the checks that Prasier is al
°leged to have issued or it may bring
a) out his pardon. After Frailer finds
.tuat he cannot, escape conviction he will
undoubtedly tell the Whole story, and
Q thus present the case of Carpenter in its
proper light.

City Engineer Rundlett yesterday com
pleted his examination of the condition
of the front wall and foundations of
Christ church, Fourth and Franklin
The examination was made at the re.
quest of the church trustees, who are de
sirous, of knowing the actual condition.
.so that they can have the required re
pairs made as soon as possible.
Mr. Rundlett In his report says he found
the south wall and on? of the abuttments
in bad condition, though-there la no im
mediate danger of its collapsing. In ad
dition to the elements, a tire which the
church suffered in ISOB, he thinks, is
largely, responsible. The wart has bulge!
to a considerable .extent, and the ben
way out of the difficulty, Mr. Hi.mix:
thinks, is to take it down and rebuild
It. The remainder of the building he has
little fault to'find with. If the wall can
not be taken down, he advises immedi

that will relieve th.- foundation from an

John Josephson Found Un

in Phalen Creek

Suicide After Debauch, Though lie
- Claims to Have Been Assaulted
; — Money lutout'hed. .
John Josrphson, a wr>ocl sawyer, living
j at No. 1 Swede Holiow, was found In an
i unconscious condition early yesterday
: morning in Phalen creek, near Fourth
Commercial street, ins throat was
cut from e,u- to ear. arCd ins wtndpipe
, severed, both wrists were sawed to the
lone, and his scalp was neariy torn off
• I; is head. v. was taken to the city bos
pitaJ in the ctntral patrol wagon. When
Josephson recovered consciousness ne
claimed tn.it he was beaten by two m< n,
but the police believe his injuries are
the result of a drunken idea to kill him
■ self.
The theory of the police. Is partially'
borne out by the fact that '"Joseph'son's
pocketbook, .containing: $125 ". in currency.!
and a draft for $378, was found in his
pockets. Gust Johnson, who lived with
Joeephson In the shanty in the hollow,
was yesterday arrested and locked up in
the central station pending the investiga
tion. At the time of his arrest John
was suffering from an acute attack of
delirium tremens. The police are satis
tied thai Johnson had nothing to do with
tin- case.-. - • - . . "

Jos. |»h:<..n'» story is that he was return
ing home about 2 ocior-k in the morning
after spending" the night "drinking. H.
went through the turmd to Commercial
street with the intention of reaching the
path'which leads to !hc 'i.olU-vv. When ha
arrived at the creek just above the tunnel
two men approached:him. Josephson de
scribes the men .is 'U)ig men, like rail-
I load men." One if them hit him on -the
head with a stone; and they thenbegan!
cutting him with a knife. When they
finished their knife woik. he says, they
threw him into the creek, -where he laid
I until discovered by Officer Maroney. Th«
| only reason Jos>|>hson. could give for. the
[ pssaull- is that the m< wanted to rob
| him. "f: ■■ '■; ' i.' '. = '>' i ■; ;
1 Inasmuch as there was m attempt to
; take hi:, money or am thing on his per
son. the polite refused to believe ... his
story. Josephson is a rioted drinker, hav
ing once before fallor the retaining
wall, breaking one leg and 1 is jaw. This j
occurred at about the same .spot where
: lie was found yesterday morning.
The ; police claim that Josephson was
drunk and decided to kill himself, and
that alter cutting his throat and wrists
he fell off the embankment into the creek
where he was found. Th* creek Is full of
recks and boulders; which would account
for tI;V. lacerated 'condition of. his scalp
and for : the other bruises on the. uppjr
part of his body. :';;.: . •
Dull K»l I at-il.
The wounds on the wrists show that the 1
instrument used was a dull .saw-edged I
knife. -Such a knife was found beside the
led of Johnson,: but there was no. aign of
blood on it nor any on any of Johnson's
clothing. "'The police 'claim that" Josepii-,
son's Ir.juries about the wrists and throat
Show suicidal intent.. They maintain that
■ with-ignorant people this, i* the usual j
method employed. ..Josephson claims to
have no ; particular enemies -■ who "would
treat him in this manntr for revenge.
With the theory at ro&berjr dlspelletf by
the finding of the money on his person,
the only ground for an assault of that
character would be revenge, or else the
work of a pair of maniacs.
Chief O'Connor detailed Detectives Daly
and Sweeney on the case, and after
working in the neighborhood all day yes
terday both were.of the opinion that Jo.
Mphson attempted to kill himself by cut
t.ng his wrists and throat and then fell
off the embankment, cutting his scalp by
coming in violent contact with the rocks
in the bed of the creek. There are sev
eral Italians living ground the shack
where Johnson and Jo^ephson lived, but
they ail maintained that th-y knew noth
ing of the affair. They raid that they
had never any trouble witft Josrphaon." '
Josephson was willing to talK at the
city hospital yesterday, "but the silver
tube through which he now breath** im
peded his speech. it took Dr. Ancker
and his corps. of physicians about-three
hours to attend to the wounded man, ana
they now nave every hope • that he will
recover. Josephsen is forty-eight years
;old and unmarried. - ■:--*-■

Gustav Johnson, who partook or
Josephson s bachelor hospitality, was suf
ficiently . recovered last night to talk
about the,matter. He said that he came
home drunk about 10 o'clock, and did not
know anything until awakened by the de
tectives yesterday morning
Johnson has lived with Josephson for
' ' .. V ■ '
some time. He said last night that when
ever Josephson was drinking he imagined
that three or four people were after htm
trying to kill him,, - Johnson says that
two years ago he fell off an embankment,
and tried to make people believe that
someone pushed him. off. "He's twisted
whenever he's drunk, and I think he did

Police Think Dr-ugr Clerk's Assault
Was Due to an Affair of
the Heart.
Henry Wainous, the young drug clerk
who was assaulted In the basement o£
the Albion hotel Friday night Is rapidly
recovering from whatever little injury he
may have received in the affray. The po
lice have come to the conclusion that a
love affair is at the bottom of the mac
ter, atid that Walnous was not nearly so
badly injured as he supposed.
Wainous and an employe of the hotel
were rivals for the affection of a young
lady, a clerk in one of the department
stores of the city. There are other love
affairs in the block, and at times some
of them conflict. It Appears that some
Jealous swam waited in the basement tor
his ri^-al with-the intention of settling
love affairs in the prehistoric manner of
the stone age. Whether Wainons was the
right one or not is yet to be determined,
but the police maintain that the injuries
he received were not sufficiently severe
to cause him to lapse into unconscious
The detective* who have looked into
the case believe that Wainous probably
knows who assaulted him. and the police
believe that he could toll if he wanted
to. They scout the theory of robbery,
and when mention is made of the pocket
book that was fuund lyin^r beside him. it
is statod that he threw it there himself
in his efforts to become heroic.
