UNREQUITED LOVE THE CAUSE
A Refusal to Marry Lead, to the Death
or Miss Ida JJennett-Th. Mur
derer Commit, Suicide.
Spokane, May 6. Daniel W. HaskUis
walked into the Salvation Army bar
racks at 3 o'ciack this afternoon, drew
a revolver and fired t'o shots into the
heart of Captain Ida Bennett. He then
fired two more into his own brain.
They fell within a few feet of each
other and died Immediately. . .
Hasklns had made repeatd threats
against Miss Bennett's life, and when
he walked into the hall one of the
soldiers cried out, "Look out, captain,
or he will kill you." Before Miss Ben
nett could seek safety in flight, how
ever, the deed of destruction had been
Hasklns was a suitor of Captain
Bennett's and she had refused to marry
him. He had been nursing this grief
for a long time. The affair got into
the papers some time ago, Hasklns de
claring that Miss Bennett had played
the part of a coquette with him nd
had deliberately broken his heart.
Miss Bennett defended herself in the
columns of the Review, and then de
clared that Hasklns was Insane; that
he had threatened to kill her, and thai
she felt only a feeling of sorrow fur
his .dluslons. ?
Captain Bennett has been for several
years a member of the army, having
worked in San Francisco and Helena,,
She was a woman of commanding fli
ure, and possessed a winning and ea:
L. C. Weller, who knew Hasklnfc
said: "Hasklna was 43 years old. He
came from Arkansas, where he had
been a deputy United States marshal
and sheriff.' Here he was a laborer.
He came here about four years ago,
and has three children. About four
months ago he began attending the
Salvation Army meetings, and there
mot Captain Bennett, and fell des
perately In love with her. I think she
encouraged him by making him be
lieve she intended to marry him."
The murdered girl was born In San
Bernardino, Cal., where' her parents
now reside. She was formerly, a tca-. h-
er there. ,
THE WALL STREET PANIC.
It Is Believed That the Worst Is Over,
and There Will Be a Rally.
New York, May 5. There were low
ering and portentious clouds over Wall
Street this morning. Brokers . and
bankers hastened to that financial
storm center, each determined to be
as near aa possible at the head of the
nrocesslon. Nobody could tell before
the opening what history lay Just over
the side of 10 o'clock, when pandemo
nium ehould be let loose. Those In,
wore strained and anxious facta, while
those out, hovered about from habit
and were scarcely less anxious.
Before three-quarters of an hour af
ter the opening, the slump In Cordage
stock became too great for S. V.
White to stand and he went down be
fore the storm. He is the grain spec
ulator whose going to the wall a year
or so ago ca,used such a sensation.
White rays the drop In sugar was one
of the leading causes of his failure. .
The failure of Ferris & Kimball
was next tnnounced.
The failure of W. L. Hatton & Co.
was next announced.
In the afternoon the battle slacked
off a trifle In intensity. There were
spasms of riotous bidding and selling,
however, for a time, and then the ac
tion again became more rapid. Rarely
In the history of the stock exchange,
were each wild f uciuations witnessed.
One of the largest houses on the street
was said to b3 In trouble and certain
to fall. Whn? ts condition existed,
dazed broker-: were throwing over
stocks regrrd'esa of price. It was esti
mated that up to noon, the London
purchases aggregated lully sixty thou
sand shares. TTIs Increase in foreign
exchange caused a drop In sterling
rates to J4.86 and $4.89 but money con
tinued close from 11 to 12 per cent.
The confidence displayed by foreigners
caused home operators to take courage
and a general rally ensued.
Money rose to 30 per cent: then cams
another thunoer clap, In the suspen
sion of W. L. Pat ton, and call loans
advanced to 40, causing stocks to
At 1:30 nor-.c-y bed fallen to 18 to 20
and by 2 o'clwl; to 6. Owing to heavy
offerings of fur.Vi by commission hous
es, stocks became comparatively calm.
At 2 p. m. eales were listed of stocks
to the amount of 445,000 shares ; unlist
ed, 202,000 shares. Stocks were then
somewhat feverish but In some instan
ces above .last night's closing.
Ferris & Kimball went down under
a load of Industrials.
. After the gavel nad fallen and the
battle was over 'or the day, men went
away in quiet ;r spots and looked the
Situation over. In well Informed finan
cial circles the feeling grew that the
worst had been sen, and from that
time on matters would improve. On
iXils theory, hlch had to some extent
obtained before the close, and the fact
that certain houses whose names were
freely mentioned as being In trouble
early In the day had pulled through
all right, numerous purchases were
made right through the list. There has
been a revulslojn In eentlmmt ' and
prices have gone jp almost as rapidly
as they dropped early in the day.
".After scanning the situation after
the close of the day a member of one
of the most conservative banking
Jiouses said: "I don't care to have my
name published, but you may say for
me that 1 think the worst Is over now.
When, White failed the last bub.bles
were punctured and we reached t the
bdttom. We are ready for a pretty
sharp rally and shall probably have
o.tjiers tywlth some slow liquidation. I
do not ' look for any more failures.
There may of, course, be some, 'but
they, will be of the small fry order
Old will' have no appreciable effect on
the market There will be a great deal
of moneY lost of course, In this grat
decline, but a good deal has been In
the margins which will show up on the
exchange. Many members of the ex
change, I do not doubt, sustained loss
es, but they will be able to stand
them. In my opinion the stock ex
change ia now a bargain counter. If
this is not a bargain day, then there
never will be one on the exchange."
Tlfci rtimor! obtained! at (onia time
that S. V. White would be taken care
of by certain ones of the sugar mag
nates. This, ; however, could not be
traced to any reliable source.
By common consent the turning
point of the tide was credited to the
exertions of Drexel, Morgan & Com.
pany, and the Vanderbllts. It is gen
erally believed that several Important
houses at th9 close of businss were
confronted with what appeared to be
Inevitable failure, owing to the enor
mous losses In the last week, and the
practical paralysis . of their credit
promised liquidation that unless stayed
would have swept them oft their feet,
but the night and early morning had
been employed by every strong inter
est which realized that the weak must
be saved at any cost.

TREASURY OFFICIALS' OPINION.
The Governmeict Ia Not Responsible
for tho Punic.
Washington, May 6. The panicky
condition of Wall street today, though
interesting to officials of. the trtasurj
department, did not, they say, Immedi
ately concern them, as the department

thought of, la Fhiwn by the fact thai
Secretary (.Vi!is!o only remained at
the cabinet mnotlng about fifteen min
utes, and thou went home. The mat
ter was not even discussed. The feel
ing among " the treasury officials,
though thry do not openly express It,
is that Wall sUcet speculators brought
the present condition upjn themselves,
Mid the gGvemmoVit is not In any way
responsiMa for It. It Is said at the
treasury department, thnt the time has
passed when the government can aid
Wall street There was a time when
by purchasing bonds, relief might have
been rendered, but thut condition has
gone by, as the government ts not In
a porftlom to take such action. As for
as the treasury department was ad
vised, at the close o'f business today,
no gold had been taken from the sub
treasury at New York for .export on
Saturday. Small offers or gold con
tinue to come In 'and be accepted.

PENNOYER'S OPINION. '
Thinks Cleveland Is in' Collusion With
the Chinese Minister.
Portland, Or., May 6. Governor Pen
noyer, referring to the failure of the
Chinese register, said:
" "The refusal of the Chinese to reg
ister was undoubtedly the result of
collusion between the president and
the Chinese minister to disregard the
law. The citizens of Oregon first
learned, of this compact from the
hieroglyphic proclamation of the Six
Companies posted on Chinese wash-
houses, in Astoria. The president Is
Justly responsible for whatever trou
ble may arise. If he had announced
his purpose to enforce the law there
would have been a complete reglstrai
tlon. The Chinese minister has ap
parently dictated the policy o'f the ad
ministration, and he was probably not
aware of the act that state governors
are not presidential satraps..
Articles of " Impeachment have
been preferred against a presi
dent for loos offense than Mr.Cleve-
land's rafusRl .to. strictly enforce the
