Neighbors remember Mrs. Downs say
ing that her daughter's illness was undor
mtnlng her own health, and also recollect
a statement made by Miss Downs that
"something was going to happen."
It is the common belief that both wo
men upon retiring agreed to end tholr
lives, and did so by turning on the single

Neighbors noticed the Downs home
closed up, and thinking this unusual tele
phoned over. On getting no response they
Investigated and smellod gas. The office
of Chief of Police Dunn was notified and
Sergeant VanouB and Chauffeur Warner
wero sent to Investigate.
Both Well Known.
Mrs. Downs and her daughter had been
living alono In tho homo on South Twen
ty-ninth street and were very well known.
The late Captain C. H. Downs, husband
of Mrs. Downs, operated the ferry line
from Council Bluffs to Omaha in tho
early '60s. Mrs. Downs was formerly
Miss Smith. Her father owned several
blocks of property north of Dodge street
on Fifteenth, .and this property Is still
In the family. Neighbors declare that In
addition to the Fifteenth street property
and their own homo Mrs. Downs owned
considerable other valuablo land and se
curities. Sho Is survived by only one daughter,
Mrs. William Chrlsman of Aztec, N. -d..
who with her husband Is now on the way
to Europe. An attempt will be made to
reach her by cable or wireless telegraph.
Mrs. Chrlsman was In Omaha several
days ago, and it is thought that her de
parture left her mother and sister in a
lonesome state, and this, together with
Miss Downs' Illness, so wrought upon the
minds of tho lattcr -that- the suicide pact
was the result.
Mrs. Downs was prominently oonnected
with the Trinity church and well known
for her philanthropy.

LONDON, Juy 3. Joseph Chamberlain
died hero last night. Tho death of Joseph
Chumberlaln, which removes one of the
most striking figures of British politics
In the last generation, came as a surprise,
as the condition of his health was not
publicly known to be any worse than at
any time In tho last two or throe years.
Mrs, Chamberlain, who never left her
husband's sldo since ho was stricken
with paralysis seven years ago, and his
son, Austen Chamberlain, were with Mr,
Chamberlain when death occurred at 10053
o'clock last night at his London resi
dence. The event cast a gloom over the

Mr. Chamberlain's lost public appear
ance was at a garden party on the
grounds of his Birmingham home on May
C last whon with his wife and son he re
ceived several hundred constituents. Mr,
Chumberlaln was wheeled out on his
law.n In n chair and appeared very
emaciated and feeble when he lifted his
hat to friends and neighbors In acknowl
edgement of their salutes.
Tariff reforms, which, with Imperial
ism, were the chief politics for which
Joseph Chamberlain wns spokesman when
enforced retirement through paralysis
occurred, havo suffered an almost com
pleto relapse, his son. Austen, being al
most tho only British statesman who ad
vocates them on all occasions.
The cause of Mr. Chumburlain's death
was announced as heart failure. Al
though he hud been gradually sinking
since Tuesday, members of the family
had preferred that his condition should
not become publicly known.
