Copper and her daughter, Harriet has produced -a profound sensation. No woman in San Francisco or on tho entire Pacific coast was so prominent as Mrs. Cooper, who had devoted her life to religious and philanthropic work. She was assistant. pastor of the First Congregational church and took a prominent part in tho 'prosecution of Rev. C. O. Brown for his alleged immoral relations with Mattlo Over man. She was a cousin of Colonel Robert Ingersoll, with whom, despite their opposite views, she maintained a warm friendship, Tho mother and daughter were found lying dead In the same bed, nbout 9 oclock, by tho Chi nese servant. Miss Cooper had wrap ped the clothes carefully nbout her but Mrs. Cooper had ovldontly attemp ted to arise when sho detected tho cs capelng gas and was too. much over come to leave her bed. Two gas jets were turned on full and the windows and doors were carefully closed. The coroner and police detectives mado a careful examination of tho room and concluded that while her mother slept Miss Cooper had arisen and turned on tho gus jets, closed tho doors windows and then calmly re turned to bed. The oalolals aro con vinced that it was a case of matricide and suicide. Dr. Worth, tho family physloltn, states that Miss Cooper had been suf. ferlng for months from melancholia, with homicidal and suicidal tendency, ncr father committed Butclde ten years ago and two cousins, nephews of hor father, ulso committed suicide. Harriet Cooper had made several previous attempts to end her lifo,once attempting to lump from the ferry boat and several times announcing to her mothcrthaV'sho longed to turn on tho gas at night so that sho and her mother could pass away together." Mrs.Cooper conclealed her daughter's condition from all except afow in timate frlcndB and had arranged to take her daughter East soon to placo her In care of relatives, hoping tho change might restore her to health. Harriet left a note to the coroner requesting that tho bodies might not bo removed to tho morgue. Mrs. Cooper'B win, aaicu iwo months ago refers to tho possibility of her early demlso and also alludes to tiir. Tinuaihin Heath of her daughter.

In tho absence of Attorney Ucnorai imcmau, tho accused, a citizen of Oregon, was represented by Frank Davoy, as hor attorney at law. The offense Miss Booth was charged with was of opening a letter directed to her mother, Mrs. Bollo Booth, laundress at the State Insane Asylum, by ono E. M. Smith engineer at tho institution. The young lady was in tho habit of getting mall for her mother, and this ono attracted her at tention as being of a suspicious char acter.

A menu of Miss Jennie was dressed up in some of Mrs.Booth's clothes,andgavo Smith a very warm rcceptlon,ln the presence of twelve or fifteen young friends, who uavohlui tho horsolaUKU.
