    • THE DEATH OF G.K. PROCTOR.

      Salem, Mass., July 31. -- The excitement continues relative to the death of G.K. Proctor.  The impression now seems to be that it was a case of suicide, the only circumstance against such a belief being the fact that the hair around the wound was not singed.  Proctor made his will, paid his insurance assessments, settled all the accounts of his business, and put his brother in as manager of the store within a week of his death, all of which seems to indicate that he was making preparations for his death.  There are some persons, however, who still hold to the theory of murder.  The Police this afternoon visited Proctor's house and found by experimenting that a pistol fired in the cellar must have been heard where Mrs. Proctor was standing, but she says she heard no report.  The pistol was found 26 feet and 4 inches from where the body was lying, and in a position which would require it to be thrown around a sharp curve if thrown by the deceased.  The officers will now consult the District Attorney as to the course to be taken.


      CHARGED WITH KILLING HER HUSBAND

      Salem, Mass., Feb 2. -- The police this afternoon arrested Mrs. Proctor for the murder of her husband, George K. Proctor, on July 27, 1882, on a capias, the Grand Jury having found an indictment.  Mr. Proctor was found unconscious in his cellar, and it was at first thought to be paralysis, but an autopsy showed that he had a bullet in his brain.  Detectives have worked on the case since, resulting in this arrest.
