I LIOYD W. BOWERS.
( Solicitor General Believed to De )
Taft's Choice For Supreme Court. )
Beverly, Mass., Aug. 31. Discussion
if President Tnft's probable nppolnt
Jient to the supreme court was revived
here when it wns learned that the
president took luncheon yesterday at
the home of Charles P. Searles, near
Ipswich, with Associate Justice Holmes
and United States Judges L. D. Colt,
William L. Putnam and Francis C.
Lowell of the First circuit. The pres
ident has two vacancies to All on the
supreme bench. One occurred with the
death of Chief Justice Fuller and the
other will come about when Associate
Justice William II. Moody makes for
mal announcement of his retirement
under the recent act of congress. There
Is no doubt as to Mr. Moody's Inten
tion to quit the bench, although his
health is said to be improved.
So far as friends of the president
know at this time, ho has not changed
his mind as to the appointment of Gov
ernor Hughes to succeed Justice Ful
ler. The governor has already been
confirmed by the senate as an asso
ciate Justice succeeding the late Justice
Brewer. The president, if he follows
his present plan, will have to with
draw the governor's name as associate
Justice and submit again as chief Jus
tice. There is little doubt that Mr. Taft is
considering the name of Lloyd W.
Bowers, solicitor general of the United
States, for the other vacancy. Mr.
Bowers Is believed hero to stand a bet
ter ciionce nt this time than does any
COLUMBUS CAE DYNAMITED.
Labor Leaders Ask Governor Harmon
to Demand Arbitration.
Columbus, O., Aug. 31. A Mount
Vernon avenue cor was dynamited at
Sandusky nnd Broad streets. Severe
injuries were sustained by a woman
passenger and by a iedestrlan on the
sidewalk. Both were rendered uncon
scious. The car crew escaped without hurts
and the car was not so badly damaged
as to prevent its being taken to tho car
barns with Its own power.
Although the trouble occurred in the
heart of a district notably In sympathy
with the car strike, it was not followed
by demonstrations of any kind.
W. D. Mahon, International presi
dent, and C. O. Pratt, chairman of the
Carmen's International union, aud a
group of other labor leaders from Co
lumbus and other Ohio cities formally
called upon General Manager Stewart
of the Columbus Railway and Light

Mysterious Girl Would Be
HAD WEARIED OF SORDID CITY
Beautiful Actress, Who Tried to End
Her Life at the Hotel Astor, Says
She Was Denied 8uccess
New York, Aug. 31. Despite tho ef
forts made to conceal the identity of
the beautiful girl who attempted to
commit suicide in the Hotel Astor. it
has been leorned thnt she is Miss Vera
Fitch, a niece of the late Clyde Fitch,
She Is n daughter of the lato Henry
Fitch of Onkland. Her sister, Miss
Grace Fitch, married a nephew of Ed
win U. Conger, former United States
minister to China, but left him to go
on the stage, taking her mniden name.
Falluro to win success on the stage,
and not disappointed literary ambition,
is given as the cause of tho girl's at
tempt at self destruction.
Miss Grace Fitch, n sister of the
young woman, is the leading woman
for Dr. Perriu, a palmist, who Is about
to open at Hainmcrstcln's Victoria.
The would be suicide Is also said to bo
a member of the Perrln compnny.
Some hours before the police began
to suspect that tho would be suicide
was Miss Fitch she yielded to the Im
portunities of lio doctors and nurses
far enough to say that her name was
Alice Cole. She gave the name with a
smile, and her demeanor satisfied the
doctors thut she wns not telling the
truth. An operation was performed
upon the girl late this afternoon for
the removal of tho bullet.
There Is nothing hysterical about this
remarkable girl, who, professing n
wish to attain oblivion, selected the
crowded notel Astor, in the heart of
the theatrical district, as the scene of
her attempt on her life. Even In pain
nnd suffering from the effects of drugs,
she is calm and determined.
The smnll pearl handled revolver she
used in her attempt on her life was
well aimed. But for n corset steel, the
bullet would have entered her heart
The steel deflected the missile, which
passed through her left lung nnd
lodged In her back.
At first the wound did not present a
serious aspect, but symptoms of blood
poisoning have developed. Then the
surgeons decided to remove the bullet.
The girl, before attempting to shoot
herself, wroto three remarkable letters.
These were found after tho uncon
scious girl, clad in rich evening attire,
had been removed to the hospital.
In one, addressed "To Mother," she
Never reproach yourself for what I am
about to do. You have been an angel of
love to me, and I regret that 1 cause you
this trouble. The force of fate has proved
too strong for me to cope with, and It
has driven me against the wall, and, be
ing defenseless, I resort to this cowardly
Then. too. I hate the Insincerity, sordid
nesa and disillusionment of life. That Is
all I have met with face to face In the
last two years. Ana now I seeK uie un
I can hear you say, dear, "It Is very
wrong for one to take one's own life
whatever the motive be."
It Is really deplorable that a girl can
not get along honorably In New York.
In some things I might have succeeded
had I conceded to the wishes of men
cultured, yes; usually moneyed, yes, but
never moral. I could never submit to
such thlivs. Death Is preferable. Ill for
tune has pursued me through.
In a letter to "Sister" she said;
Waiting the last two years, I havo sev
eral times been tempted to do this, and
now I will be successful for the first
time in my life In something that I
would not undo if I could. It Is hard to
do this, but still harder not to do it. Do
not grieve for me. Though I have never
Intentionally said or done an unkind thing
In my life, I recognize that my life has
been a mistake a hopeless mistake. Ob

In tho third letter, to "Blanche," she
As with King Midas, everything turns to
gold; in my case everything turns to fail

might not have ts.-en so. Mine has been
an unhappy lite. Think kindly of me i

Chief Special Agent Kills
WELSH HURLS NITROGLYCERIN
Discharged Groat Northern Railroad
Employes, After Falling to Shoot
Former Superior, Makes Attempt
to Blow Up Building.
Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 31. C. P.
Welsh, a discharged special ngent of
tho Great Northern railroad, was shot
and instantly killed by Al O. Ray,
chief of tho road's special agents, aft
er Welsh had hurled a bottlo contain
ing nitroglycerin nnd fired five times
nt Ray in an attempt to take his life.
The bottlo contained enough nitro
glycerin to blow up the entire building
in which tho tragedy was enacted.
Tho shootlug occurred in Rny's of
flco in the Great Northern building,
St. Paul. Ray gave himself up Imme
diately after Welsh was killed and Is
held by tho St Paul police. It is be
lieved no formal cliargo will bo made
against him, since tho authorities are
convinced that he acted entirely In
Welsh had been special agent for the
Great Northern in Duiuth, but had
been discharged by Ray becauso lie
had shot and wounded Georgo Miller
In an affray near Duiuth not long ngo.
Ray claimed Welsh had fired on Miller
Welsh left the Great Northern July
21. Since then he had been calling al
most dally at Ray's oillce asking for
re-employment nnd demanding a rec
ommendation. When Ray refused ho
threatened his life.
Welsh went to the Union station in
St Paul, where he told John Lane, the
station detective, that ho "would get
Ray yet." Lane told him to keep still
and leave tho premises, and Welsh
then threatened his life.
Before Rny reached his office yester
duy Welsh appeared and nsked Chief
Clerk Lewis Hess if there was any
mail for him. On being told that there
wns not he left, saying, "Where is Al?"
"He will be in in n few minutes,'1
"Tell him I'll be back," said Welsh
as he went out.
A moment or two later Ray put in
an appearance, and, going into his pri
vate office, began to open his mail.
While he was thus employed AVelsh
appeared unannounced at the door and
began to fire at Ray. With the first
shot Ray dropped to the floor behind
his desk, nnd, using that as a screen,
kept out of hnrin's wny as Welsh fired
five shots. When Welsh ceased firing
Rny stood up from behind his desk
and fired, killing his assailant in
stantly. Welsh's shots struck the wall Inline
diately behind Ray's desk and within
a few Inches of Ray's head. He fired
with his right hand nnd seemed to be
feeling for something in his pocket
witli his left. As Ray brought his pis
tol Into action Welsh fired his last shot.
Then he threw the package which he
had taken from his pocket. The bul
lets from Rny's revolver seemed to
confuse Welsh, and he put little force
behind ills attempt. Ray did not real
Ize until afterward that tho package
contained nitroglycerin, with fuse and
Ray's shots were deadly. At least
four of the sis bullets took effect.
Walsh staggered into tin anteroom and
Detective Jnnies Murnaue picked up
the llnsk of nitroglycerin that Welsh
had thrown at Ray. Tho explosive
filled a pint flask. It wns wrapped in
heavy brown paper. Holes had been
cut carefully through the top of the
paper and the percussion cap which
was attached to a fuse, which should
have set off the fluid, was pushed
through the holes.
"There was enough to destroy the
whole building," said .Murnane. "The
heavy paper prevented the explosion
but even nt that it is reninrknblo it did
uot go off."
