Htrango Story of Murder comes
San Francisco July ('. A strange
story Is brought from India via Hong
Kong by the steamer City of Itlo
Janeiro. The narrative tells of tho
murder of J. F. G. Lester acting su-
erlntendent of police at Godra by his
wife. The woman makes excuse for
her terrible deed by explaining that her
husband was most brutal to her and
In a moment of pasBlon she seized u
rifle and shot Mr. Lester through the
back killing him Instantly.
Pecular Interest Is taken In the case
because of the prominence of the
principles. Mr. Lester was the nephew
of Sir Edwin Arnold and the son ot an
old Bombay general nnd Mrs. Lester
Is the daughter of Colonel Braham an
oia inaian campaigner. She was mar-
ried to Lester five years ago.
The tragedy occurred on the night or
May 8 at the top of what Is know as
Pawnghar hill llanch Mahayls dis-
trict. The Lesters had been encamped
at Champaner for some time and K
was desired that the camp be moved
to the top of thv hill which Is -2.B0O
feet high. The lady objected to mov-
ing and begged to be permitted to re-
turn to her home In Bombay hut
Lester refused to grant her request.
She finally agreed to accompany her
husband and on May 7 the moving
party started up the grade. Camp was
reached on the morning the Sffi. In
the morning of the 9th a courier ar-
rived at a Mr. Llttledale's camp half
way down the mountain with newB
that Mr. Lester had been killed. A
letter written by Mrs ester was
handed the Llttledalcs in which com-
munication the lady made the state-
ment that she had shot her husband
as Bhe could not atand tils brutal treat-
ment any longer and asked that tho
authorities be notified. Mrs. Lester ex-
pressed no sorrow for her deed which
has created a sensation throughout

St Louis July . A special to th
Republic from English Indiana says:
Dr. William Lomax of Suphur "Well tel-
ephoned here this evening of a terrible
riot which occurred at a picnic yester-
day at Siberia Perry county. In which
1.000 men and women participated
Three men were killed and fifty-four
persons wounded many of whom are
women. The dead are:
The occasion was a German Catholic
picnic and an Interruption by antl-Cath
ollca loaded with bad whisky was the
cause of the trouble. It Is thought the
riot would not have taken place but
for the use of liquor although preju-
dice amounting to almost bigotry exists
on both sides. Dr. Lomax Is a surgeon
and with two assistants was kept busy
from o'clock yesterday afternoon until
noon today dressing the wounds of the
Injured. He related some awful inci-
dents. A woman In a delicate condition was
kicked the blow killing the child and
being likely to result In her own death.

"Witt Oklahoma1 Divorce Law fHlck.
The first of thWiMnftircrS'hppeareil
In the AHsOcinted Press reports cmlna-
ting from St. Louis a dispatch concerning-two
former Oklnhomn people.
The interest in tho subject lies in the
fact that tho validity of the territory's
divorce l.tw is attached llrielly staled
tho case Is us follows: "In the SL
LoiiIh court of criminal correction
will be called the case against John B.
Carroll a collection agent In the Rlalto
building and one "Sallle Smith" ao-
cused of lewed conduct. It will nn In-
teresting caso In more ways than one
for among the Issues to be decided la
the degree of efficiency possessed by an
Oklahoma divorce. Mrs. John B. Car-
rollor a woman who Is firmly con-
vinced that she Is Mrs. JohnD. Carrol
swore out the warrant Friday. Car-
roll wan arrested nt his office and
"Sallle Smith" was arrested at Car-
roll's home. 4953 Odcll avenue. Car-
roll claims that .Sallle Smith" is his
lawful wife and thnt he secured a di-
vorce from the woman who swore out
the warrant some time slnco in Okla-
homt. Carroll nnd "Sallle Smith" were
released on bond while Mrs. John B.
Carrol betook herself to Ferguson. Mo.'
on a visit.
The decree or certificate of divorce re-
cites that Territorial District Judge A.
G. C. Blerer on May C. 1895 did In
Noble county Oklahoma grant to
John B. Carroll a divorce from his wife
In consideration of the fact that Carl-oil
had been "a bona fide resident of
the territory for ninety days proceed-
ing that date. The decree was not to
become operative for six rnonths. The
marrlago certificate recites that J.
Carroll and M. J. Blatz were married
In Kansas City on June 12 1895 by
Charles II. Bruce a minister of the gos-
pel. Carroll claims that he Is the J.
Carroll mentioned In both documents
and that M J. Blatz ts the woman the
original Mrs. John B. Carroll calls
"Sallle Smith." He will not say how
he could possibly stretch tho period of
time from May C to June 12 Into elx
months tho time the decree specifies
shall elapse before It goes Into effect.
Neither will Mr. Fitch. Mr. McEntlre
who has been Mrs. Carroll's attorney
for a year or more solemnly nfHrma
that his client never received a notice
that a suit for divorce had been
brought against her In Oklahoma or
any other place. He doubts that John
B. Carroll Is a resident of Oklahoma
and he doubts the legality of an Okla-
homa divorce of the character Carroll
has. So It Is n beautiful muss from
whatever aldi It Is viewed.
