TECUMSEH MAN SHOOTS QIRU
THEN KILLS HIM3ELF.
Insane Jealou$y Prompted tne Shoot-
ing and Suicide Doth Parties
Were Highly Esteemed and
Prominent Lodge Workers.
Shawnee Okla. May 20. At eight
o'clock thlii morn'ng a (armor driving
thrco mllea south of this city on tho
Mission road discovered the bodies
of a man and woman lying ISO yards
from the toad and a horse nn.l buggy
tied nearby to n phono polo.
Tho bodies were found to be those
of James E. Heed formorly n tho
grocery business at Tecninseli and
Miss Ollt j Johns stop-dai'htor of J. S.
Sclnimiikor of that place
Ueed nnd tho young lndy loft homo
last night ostensibly to attend n ban
quot by tho Odd tVllows In Shawnee
but It Is not believed tlmt they over
reached this city. Tho man was 48
and tho lady 18 years of ago and ho
had bean otmmorod of hor for somo
Prom nppoornncos ho had Insisted
on his suit and she had ropiilsid him
finally looping from the buggy nnd
running Into tho flold tc escape.
Ho had then tied the horse to tho
polo and followed her flrl-ig tw j shots
one of which struck hor In the Mp and
tho other In tho right slionldo. Two
moro shots fired at closo range enter-
ed her head causing death and burn-
ing hor hair around tho wounds. Sho
fell faco downward clutchlnj hor
blood-stained handkerchief One of the
heels was torn from the shoe and
marks on tho back of hor neck show
where Heed clutched her. Ho then
walked a few feet away and fired two
shots Into his head evidently dying
Prom Indication both nnd becu dead
about twelve hours when found.
Heed hns always borne a good man-
ly reputation but It Is believe I that
his Insane Jealousy caused the shoot-
ing nnd suicide. Ho was a widower
nnd had one daughter marrle! living
somewhere In tho two territories. Tho
murderer was prominent In tho Odd
Fellow and Mnsonlc gocleltles nnd
came from Arkansas.
Miss Johns was a young lrly of
about 18 years. Sho was formerly n .
l.gh school student nnd recently
consod going to school In order to
prepare for her marriage to a Tecum-
stfr young man which was to lnvo oc-
cured In June. She was secretary ot
tho local blvo of Meccanoes.

PROSPECTS FOR STATEHOOD
BILL GOING AS SUCH.
Cannon Has Made no Reply to For-
akers Ultimatum and Unless the
Former Will Compromise He
Mutt Suffer Dfea.
Washington May IC t'nless Mr.
Foraker should relent. Speaker Can-'
ion has lost his opportunity to com-
promise oven on the second Pornker
amendment. It was two days ago that
the Ohio Senator sent his Inst prop-
osition to the Speaker nnd as no
nnswer has been received Mr. Porak-
it ramrliiiloit It Inn tioitti rnltctil.
Now accordingly his terms are the (
llurmws amendment which does not
ovon give the people of New Mexico
nnd Arlxona an optmrtunlty to ex-
press their wish us to stntohood.
Such an attitude on the mrt of Mr.
Porsker Indicates his eonlldeneo of
Imlimr ulilu tit mil tliM ui'iinjituatital
statflnHxI measure onto the sundry
slvll bill as a rider. Mr. Porake-r he-
lioses there are at least forty-nine J
senators who will support him In this
project and that would he a majority
TIioubIi the MiMMker hns mnrw than
once proved his resourcefulness In
such struggles as this action would
bring on. men who have witnessed
mnhy iarllainentary ooiiiosts declare
thy can conceive of no wny for the
speaker to escape defeat.
.ijhe sundry civil bill Is not ono that
oould be sacrificed nt tho nltar of
tho1 speaker's vanity nnd least of nil
this purtlculnr one since It cnrrles
thy appropriation for the canal. It
would therefore bo n content of en-
durance ami In such struggles the
house Is nt a disadvantage when so
many members have to go home to
fight for irfilltlcnl existence.
It hns been remarked thnt the
speaker as If In anticipation of this
contest keeps the public buildings
bill In committee although It has
practlcANy been ready for more than
six weeks. This bill wilt make n dis-
tribution ot about $20000000 and Its
present status will )nrote to res-
train those whoso Impatience three
or four weeks hence might tempt
them to desert tho speaker nnd give
the vtory to -Mr. Pornker. As Mr.
Poranur has the reputation of being
a "KHine fighter" the prospect Is (tint
either the speaker must yield or thnt
the session wilt be prolonged to n
tlmo when the nveroge Republican
ought to be nt home on political business.
