San Francisco Sept. 5 - The last will of John M. CHENOWITH, saloon-keeper, who shot and killed Richard T. CARROLL, the wholesale liquor merchant and then committed suicide, was filed by the deceased's brother, with petition for probate today. It says: "This is my last statement on earth. R. T. Carroll, after having robbed me of over $17,000, is endeavoring to rob me of everything I have. He has a deed of property which was given by Mrs. E.G. ACKERSON, which I swear is not right or awful. The Peerless saloon property should pay all my lawful debts, and the surplus I devise to my brother Wellington, and Mrs. E. G. Ackerson, and name them as my executors without_____"
The statement ends here abruptly.
