Arthur Delplane also lives in gig Harbor connected with the Mill. He is about 30 years of age. Arthur met Minnie and the result was that a thur was a constant visitor at the Mcguire hot Slead. But also met Arthur and she looked upon him and he was fair. She wanted him for herself it is said and immediately became a rival of her daughter for his affections. The Young Mau must have Given mrs. Mcguire gome encouragement for her affection apparently grew to some thing stronger nud at last she found that without him life no longer contained any pleasures for her. The daughter Minnie was the favorite however and the Mother was beside herself with anger when she found the two together of Friday evening acting As if they were accepted lovers.
