Helperatn Attempt In Kill a Deputy.
Ltnr.nrv. Ma, Nov. 30 About 4:34
o'clock yesterday afternoon, William
Cnrr, murdorerof his 3-year-old dough
ter, Helle, uttemptod to commit sul
cldn by swallowing pounded glass.
Ho fought desperately against reme
dial measures and had to be choked
into submission. Dr. Sovler, who Is
attending him, does not nay whether
or not Carr will recover, but it is
probable that he will.
Carr's wife called to sco him yester
day afternoon, and Deputy .Sheriff Ed
Cnvo took Carr up to the sheriff's
ofllce that he might talk tohor. Cuvo
left the two there with Night Watch
man Will Wymoro and went
down to tho jail to see it Carr
had made any new plans. The
prisoners told Cave that Carr
had takon n bottle of medtclue
belonging to ono of tho prisoners Sat
urday night and, after pouring tho
medicine on tho floor, had poundod tha
bottle until tho glass was reduced
almost to powder. Carr put thn
pounded glass Into a tobacco sack nnd
went back to his bunk and went to
sleep. The prisoners wcro afraid to
say anything about It to the ofllccrs,
and did not nny anything until Can
was up In the sheriff's ofllce.
Just before Carr wns taken to tho
sheriff's ofllce, he went Into the closet
with n cup of water in Ills hand. He
took something out of his pocket,
poured It Into the cup nnd drained Hi
contents. He then walked upstair;
and talked to his wife. When Cava
learned of Carr's queer actions ho took
him back to tho Jail nnd went
for Dr. Sevlor. Tho doctor requested
Carr to take uu omattc, uud lm
refused in very strong terms.
The doctor then gave hltn
a hypodermic Injection designed to
make him throw tho glass up. A few
minutes Inter ho tried to give him an
other, and Carr grew threatening in
his atlttude and looks and refused tu
permit It. Cnvo left tho jail to get
some officers to assist This loft tho
doctor ntono with Carr, who picked up
a chair and started nt Sevlor, but did
not strike hltn. Then ho said ho would
kill Cave when ho came back.
Cuvo soon returned with Officers
Thompson and Wymorc. Carr lifted
the chair to brain Cave, but Cavo was
too quick for him. He leaped and
caught Carr by tho throat, und tbo
two other officers rushed in to assist
Carr, however, fought desperately, and
kept tho three men off several minutes.
Flunliy they downed him ami Carr
was choked into submission. Ho
begged Cnvo not to choko htm to death.
It Is evidently his desire to havo tho
ofllccrs shoot him. A second injection
was given. Carr, but tho glass failed
to come up. Sovler said that he could
not say whother Carr would recover

MORE GERMAN WAR SHIPS
The Kaiser Makea u I'ortoual Appeal
Speech to I'ttrll.tmcnt.
Jlr.nr.i.v, i)0(.. L Kmporor William
opened tho session of tlio rclchstag
to-day for tho first tlmo slnco 1804 and
read the spocch from tho throne.
Tho nnvy occupied tho principal
place in tho speech. Tho passage on
this subject was as follows: "The de
velopment of tho German navy does
not correspond with Germany's mis
lion nt sen, undilu tho event of war
like complications It would not sutllco
to assure tho security of tho home
ports und coasts against a blockado
of moro extensive operations
upon tho pnrt of the enemy.
Neither has it kept paco with tho
rapid growth of German truns-occanic
Interests. While German trade is par
ticipating increasingly in tho world's
sxchange of merchandlso the number
of our war vessels docs not sufllco to
afford our countrymen abroad tho
measure of protection corresponding
with (lormauy's position nor tho sup
port which can only bo secured by a
display of power. Although It Is not
our object to vie with tho maritime
powors of tho first rank, Germany
must nevertheless bo placed In n posi
tion to maintain by means of prepared
ness at sea her prestige among the
people of tho globe."
Koforrlng to tho naval demonstra
tion iu Kiao-Chou bay, China, the em
peror said: "The murder of the mis
tlonarlcs In Ch lim and the attacks up--n
mission stations which havo been
placed under my imperial protection,
tnd their welfare, which I havo at
heart, have compelled mo to cause my
quudron in Eastern Asia to proceed
to Klao-Chou bay, tho point nearest
the scene of the outrage, and laud
troops in order to obtain full repara
tion und security against n recurrence
af similar lamentable events."
Touching the general political situa
tion His Majesty said: "Our political
relations with foreign states are in
jvory way gratifying and valuable
juarautces of tho maintenance of
those rotations have again been uf
forded me by meetings with tha allied
and friendly monarch, as well ns by
tho brilliant and cordial receptions
accorded mo lu my visits to l'cterhof
nd Iludn Pesth."
Tho speech concluded: "All indica
tions justify tho expectation that,
with God's help, wo may in tho future,
as in th past, look forward to tho
peaceful development of Europe and
the German futherlaud."
