"Mr. Von Plank had been well no qualnted wtlh me and my husband for some time past," said Mrs. Blacker In discussing the affair. "Yesterday he rang me up on the telephone and said I that he was going to leave town with ! the La Salle troupe the next day and he wanted to know If'I could not come up to his room and see him before he went away. I said I was going up town to do some shopping and If I had time I would try and call. I went down town and did my shopping and then went to the Grand. I had been in his room only about fifteen minutes when my husband came. I had taken off my gloves and was sitting In a rocking chair near the bed on which Mr. Von Plank was lying. We were talking about his leaving the city. The first I knew that my husband was there was when I heard the breaking of glass and saw him, standing there with a revolver. Mr. Von Plank Jump ed up and ran to the door. If the door was locked I did not know It and I do not think that it was. If It was Mr. Von Plank rushed up to open It and as he did so my husband stepped through the doorway and flred once or twice and when Mr. Vo n Plank fell he emptied the revolver Into his body. | Mr. Von Plank did not endeavor to fight. When I saw him come In I left my choir and went around It. After he had finished shooting, my husband turned to me and began pulling my clothes off. He pulled my hat from my head and then began rlpptnf? off i my skirt, exclaiming, " >' ou ' 1 want to leave as many of your clothes In this room as I can."

One of the chairs ; was broken and both Von Plank nnd Blacker spoke of the fierce flsht. He put up a devil of a fight," said Blacker, "but I sot him. I wish the gun had been larger." The Actor's Statement . Occupants of the hotel hoard the noise of the breaking Klass, the strug-1 gle and the shooting that followed and as soon as Blacker and his wife had left were at the side of the injured man He was lying In a poo! of blood near the doorway.
