MRS. MALONEY FIRED SHOT
Coroner's Jury Holds Woman Killed
' Her Husband.
FATHER 0'NEIL ON THE STAND
Trlla ( Nnmrrvu Acts Indicating'
Woman'. Unbalanced - Mind
Waited Before Giving the
Alarm After Crime.
The testimony of Rev. Father O'Nell,
her pastor, Mrs. 'A. T. Jones, her nelgh
. bor, aided by that of police officers and
others,' fully established the fact In the
minds of the members of the coroner's
Jury that Mrs. Katherine Maioney fired
; the shot that killed her husband, Michael
i Maioney, at their home, 2121 Avenue F,
. on Saturday afternoon. They returned
a verdict to this effect at the inquest
, conducted yesterday by ' Justice Joseph.
Father O'Nell was the first -witness;
He said the Maloneys had been members
cf the Holy Family Catholic church since
It was ; established five years ago, but
that he had. known Mrs. ' Maioney for
twelve, of fourteen ytars. He told of
numerous instances ind acts that indi
cated 'the unbalanced condition of he'r
mind and told of threats that were re
peated to him which concernod himself.
She became violently angry" at him on
numerous occasions over the most trivial
tilings. On one occasion while the new
church was In process of construction
and the congregation was worshiping
In a private residence, Mrs. Maioney
ordered him to remove a picture hanging
In the room to which she took unwar
ranted exception and threatened ' him
with violence when he 'did not comply.
He; recounted numerous instances wlere
she had told him of her intention to kill
her husband, but ' when pres;el for a
reason was unable to assign . any al
though she frequently complained of him,
declaring he was a "mean man.''
'Offh-er trU Siorj .
Deputy Marshal Crum, who was one
of the first officers to . enter the house
after the killing, detailed the position In
which the body was found. The feet
were lying inside the pantry and .the man
was lying" on his face on the kitchen
floor,' Several feet away waa a large
pool of blood. In the man's left hand,
held loosely with' the thumb in the trig
ger guard, was the weapon w.th wh ch
the murder had been done. Underneath
the body were found a butcher knife and
a crumpled , and bloody $1 bill. Mrs.
Maioney was wearing a freshly launda.vd
white underskirt without a dress and
a light white cape about her shoulders.
She claimed the man had shot him
self. He told of Mrs. Maioney later Ull
ing him of a bloody . dress wnlch - she
concealed in a closet after trying to
burn it. . The garment was found and
produced in court, blood-stained and
partly burned. The officer te;tXed that
there were, forty-nine empty beer bottls
in the closet and six tr seven Inside a
base-burner that stod in the kitchen.
He . also testified that Mrs. Maloneys
arms' and breast showed several brulee
where she had apparently received heavy
blows at the hands of her' husband. He
testified that the two other bullet holes
found In the room had been fired at right
angles from the point where Moloney's
Quarrel Before Shooting.
' Evidence of a violent quarrel preceding
the shooting was given by Mrs. Jones.
She said they had been quarreling for a
long time and she heard Maioney say,
"You started It."
Just before she heard the shot, she
said she heard Maioney say, "Oh, Kate!
She said It was between twenty and
thirty minutes after the shooting before
Mrs. Maioney came out of the house and
called for help. She told of the frequent
quarrels the couple had had.
Chief of Police Froom submitted the
report made by the officers, and Dr. H.
B. Jennings detailed the story of the
autopsy and presented the bullet that had
caused the man's instant 'death.''
Mrs.- Maloney's condition ye3terday be
came so serious that tt was noceitcary
to remove her from the city jail to Ft.
Bernard's hospital, where she will prob
ably be .held until after the snnd Jury
meets on September 20 if she Is not
sooner brought before the Insanity com

" Proves" Big Feature
A. record-breaking ' carnival , crowd
thronged the, grounds last night, and ap
parently every- person present .entered
heartily into the fun-making mood that
characterises the carnival spirit. The
pyrotechnic procession of . the Are de
partment attracted an. enormous crowd,
packing Main street from the Pearl street
Junction to Broadway."" The railway men
joined the firemen of No. 1 company and
equipped it with about a dosen times
the quantity of red fire that had 'been
allotted to its apparatus. Assistance of
the same kind was given to No. 6 com
pany, and the equippage brilliantly out
shone that of the other companies. Al
though the run was made at nearly top
speed the supply of roman candles was
inadequte, and - when the procession
reached Broadway the batteries had be
come' exhausted. The companies will
make , another , si miliar ' run tomorrow
evening. When the pyrotechnics trero
finished It required more than an hour
for the throngs of people to work their
way through the carnival gates. -

' At a meeting of the city council yes
terday afternoon a total of $600 was added
to the valuation fixed by the appraisers
of the property to be condemned for the
opening of First avenue from Main 'to
Fourth street. Bergman, , the owner of
the double store located at 43 and 45 South
Main street, was given an extra $500 and
Dlckerson, who owns the photograph gal
lery occupying all of the second floor of
the building, was given $100 additional,
making the total to be paid to the land
lord 17,500 and $700 to his tenant.
.The action was taken following a notice
of appeal filed by Bergman, accompanied
by an offer to accept $7,500 and a verbal
protest from Photographer Dlckerson.
Dlckerson, whose lease runs to March 14,
1914, had placed his damages at $1,3)0 and
Bergman, who lives at Newton, la., had
previously priced his property at $14,000,
and It was shown that It had cont him
more than the amount he had offered to
accept. Dlckerson made a strong repre
sentation , of the damages that would be
inflicted upon htm by the destruction of
an established business which would fol
low the vacation of a place that had been
used for a photograph gallery for twenty
five years. When the matter was fully
presented the council unanimously ap
proved the acceptance of Mr. Bergman's
offer and the deed was forwarded for his
signature last evening, and a contract
with Mr. Dlckerson' was ordered.
A request from M. F. Rohrer for the
construction of a sewer on North Sixth
street was granted. The ?wer will run
in front of the property donated by Mr.
Rdhrer for a part of Lincoln park, and
the city will thus be obliged to pay one
half of the cott. The property on the
other side of the street Is all owned by
A claim for $100 filed by Mrs. Mary
Hummer for flood damages to her prop

to the judiciary committee. A report of
the Judiciary committee advising ther
settlement, of the suit of Marian, Schoen
ing, aged 11 years, who sustained a broken
leg last winter by falling on a bad side
walk near the Ogden hotel, was approved.
The claim was settled for $200.
An extra fire horse belonging to No. 2
hose company, whote mate recently died,
was ordered sold for $175. The firemen
say the horse was "crazy" and became
frantic whenever the fire gong was
sounded. A petition for the extension of
trackage required by the ,Imp?Tlal Mllllny
company Was referred to the committee
of the whole. The aldermen devoted the
remainder of the afternoon to the assess
ment of the Twenty-first street curbing.

naturally of frail physique, haa been 111

overcome. This fact - has become gener

bold Impunity. They have carried away
or destroyed the fruit of more than four
acres ot grape, about all of the plums,
raspberries , and blackberries and . de
stroyed the greater part of his sweet

On one occasion a short time ago they
stole $56 in cash, which had been se

On another occasion they went to tho
