HOLY CROSS PATIENT
: MAY BE TRAIN ROBBER
WilHam Wilson Shot Twice and Arrested at Mil
ford as One of the Calientes HoId-Ups Does Not
Give a Clear Account of Himself.
It ly to be hoped, that William "Wil
son, thc man arrested at Mllford Fri
day night, !s- one of the bandits who
held up the Greek' and Italian laborers
at Calientes, for. if not he Ls suffering
a fearful and unmerited' punishment.
lie now occupies a cot at the Holy
Cross hospital", with two bullet holes in
his body and first rate chunces for los
ing hla right arm.
He was brought In from Mllford yes
terday morning on a col, In the cus
tody of a deputy sheriff, who had him
vonveyed at once to thc hospital. Tho
wound fn his arm, inflicted by Marshal
Hickman of Mllford. is the most pain
ful and dangcrouE, although thc butlct
in his left hip Is no slight,' matter. Dr.
Root, who was called to attend the pa
tient, has not yet made a thorough ex
amination, but said last night that the
! arm might have to come off.
HOW WTbSON WAS SHOT.
Wilson Is cne of two men who board
ed a Sun Pedro train at Modcna Fri
day night. The conductor telegraphed
to Mllford that the men answered tlx;
description of the CalicntcH hold-ups
and when a stop was mado at Mllford.
Marshal nickmnn and Deputy Sheriff
Stoddard attempted to put the men
under arrest It is alleged that Wilson
made a move for a gun. Anyway the
marshal shot hlin above the elbow The
passengers mistook the olllcers for
hold-upn. and a general fualludo fol
lowed, ln which the olilcer and ono or
two passengers were slightly wounded.
Taking advantage of the excitement,
the two suspicious characters disap
peared. A short time nfterward Wilson ap
peared at the railway pumphousc and
surrendered. He first gave his name ns
Moore and claimed to be a airanger in
that part of the country.
HE TELLS HIS STORY.
When seen at thc hospital last even
ing thc wounded man gave his name as
Wilson and claimed that he was the
victim of a serious mistake.
"I do not know why he shot me." he
declared. "I did not oftcr tho least re
sistance. I was walking along he aisle
when thc marshal whirled me around,
put a gun under my nose and told me to
throw up my hands. I put up both
hands and did not make a move of any
kind. Then he shot nic. I did not have
a gun on mc at all and If I had had one
I would have had no chance to use It,
for thc marshal's pistol was within six
inches of my face.
I "Then tho Italians in the car began
(o shoot and jump out of the car, and T
made a run for It. I did not know but
what I was up against a hold-up, be
cause thc officer did not have on a uni
form and all, he said to me was,-'Throw
up your hands!'
"As I went out the door of lho car
another bullet took me In the hip. It
must have been tired by ono of the Ital
ians, for it was not like that In my arm,
to Judge from thu nlze of thc wound.
"I was rather da.ed at first and wan
dered nround In that condition. There
was a croud around the marshal and
I did not know but what he had been

Senator Warren's Dinner a Unique
and Magnificent Affair Postal

U'ASHINGTON. D. C, Feb. '.'$.
Thomas C. White has been commis
sioned postmaster at Saint Maries. Ida.
Contract for star service, between
Goodsprlnga and Moapa, New, with J.
A. Dclton has beon annulled and new
contract awarded! to W. L. Jones at
$2100 per annum.
One of the most unique dinners ever
given in Washington was by Senator
Warren at the New Wlllard. One hun-
UieU nuic covin, Ull inuimiuin
ln official society. The banquet-room
nnd adjoining rcccptlon-room, where
MIbs Warren, the Senator's debutante
daughter, assisted ln welcoming the
guests, was decorated! most lavishly in
fiags and tropical plants with the shield
of the United States worked out in tiny
electric lights. A 3tring orchestra
played in the gallery overlooking tho
dlnlng-rcom. the music being chiefly
of a patriotic order, and varied enough
to include "America," tho Star-Spangled
Banner" and '-Dixie."
The table formed! a hollow square,
with the center forming a inaplike pres
entation of the Panama canal, complet
ed, with several United Stateii ships ln
trans-It. Two models of the Wj-omlng
were used, that of the old' ship of forty
yearn ago and that of the Wyoming of
today now on duty at the isthmus. The
Ohio was also represented, presumably
ln honor of tho native State of the new
Secretary of War, who occupied thc
place of honor next the youthful host
ess. Tho military Idea was carried out
still further by miniature guns In brass
and bronze, muskets stacked for peace,
and1 caissons In brans, drawn by rlx
horses f-aeh. Thf I'nmc t4rds, corsage
bouquets, and boutonnlcrrcr. were all
tied with rod, while and blue ribbon, and
the candles lighting the immense boavd
otere shuded ln the same colora,
covered, the lifeboats containing the
women and children and many men,
wcro'launfched, but three of these, ow
ing to heavy seas, capsized, spilling the
passengers In the water nnd causing
the loss of nine lives. Three men."
waiters on thc vessel, were suffocated
before they could reach the outer air
in safety from their bunks ln the
"glory hole" ln the aft part of the ship,
and ono woman died later from expos
