CHICAGO, Sept. 10.—Clnude L. Wai!( ler, the Charles City, Iowa, lawyer, ' who was shot in this city by; Leo V. Roeder Saturday afternoon, lies at the Polyclinic hospital in n critical condition. When taken there lie was re- by stimulants and told the fol- < lowing story of the affaii 1 : r About 12:45 o'clock this afternoon I wont to the. office of Leo Roeder, at 125 Clark street, In company with Mrs. Catherine M. ''Press and her husband. When we arrived there a young man in the office told us that . l Mr. Roeder would be in soon and we waited. In a few moments Mr. Roeder came in. I i said to him, " I'm h ore to transact some business for Mr. and Mrs. Press." Roeder said he wouldn't talk to me, but if Mr. Press had any business with the office he would talk to him. Press then said he had turned over his legal business to me. Mr. , Press then started to leave tho room. I told him to make a demand on Roeder for ' his money and property, which ho did. Boeder became very angry at this. He said to Press, "I will give you all the money I have now." He then stepped out to get some change, be said. When be ', came back he placed 6375 on the. top of the - desk and sat down in front of the desk. I , '.stepped forward and laid my bands on the "mouey and pushed it toward Mrs. Press. '<•<Boeder called me a vile name and said, H"you take your hand off that money." I *, did so. Then Roeder said, applying an',dither vile name to me, "I'll,,fix you any;,how." He jumped up with a revolver in ' nis hand, which he took from a drawer in the desk, I think, and shot me. Claude L. Waller is 30 years of age and has been practicing law in this city 'for three years. His home is at Charles ; -City, Iowa, where his father and mother now reside. In this city he lived 'with an aunt, Mrs. Josie Waller, at '4355 Si. Lawrence avenue. He attend- 'ed college in Iowa, and afterward grad' 'uated. from the Kent Law school in this city. A partnership was formed with J, L. Patterson, and offices of the firm are now at 1415 Ashland block.

Algona theatre-goers will be pleased at the announcement that Manager Haggard has booked for his next attraction at the opera house, that sterling and highly successful comedy, "Jniie," which has a record of the largest metropolitan run ever scored by u single comedy in this country. Everybody ought to see "Jane" because genuine Wholesome comedy is a rarity in these degenerate days of the drama. "Jane" shows the possibilities of domestic perplexities at improbable times, and illuminates the foibles and caprices of weak human nature. There are .many ludicrous, situations, the dialogue is crisp and bright and the company the best that the world of actors affords. "Lady Fortune," Chas. Thomas' prize one-act comedy, will be given as a curtain raiser. 6tfc66S9, TH& UttettianciS is gtiod, and the managers are highly pleased With their first terfo's patron-, ft $!
