YELLOW FEVER SCARES

supreme lodge officers of thei"KjiIghts
of Pythias met here today in consul
tation to consider . . the question,
whether the next biennial convention
of the Supreme Lodge shall be held
in New Orleans or somewhere else.
The prevalence of yellow fever in
Ne w Orleans has caused consider
able scare among the members of the
order all over the country and for
some time the question has been agi
tated whether it would not be better
to change the place for holding the;
convention to gome other city than
to take great and unnecessary risks
by holding the convention in New Or
leans. It is maintained that New Or
leans cannot, possibly, guarantee that
there will be no yellow fever epi
demic in that city next year and as
such an eventuality 1s decidedly pos
sible, it would be necessary to change
the convention to some other city
anyway. The citizens of ew Or
leans will strongly opjKise the plan
of changing the place of the conven
ion, $40,001) having already been sub
scribed to the fund for the entertain

in charge of the entertainment are
determined to make a hard fight in

Night Marshal Shot and Instantly Killed by Drunk

Game of Roulette.
Special to The Cltlren.
Winslow, Ariz., Oct. 30. A shooting
affray took place in the Par. or saloon
Saturday night in which George J.
Giles, night marshal, was killed al
most instantly. Pete Pemberton, a
gambler, and Walter Darling, who was
running the roulette tabie, quarrelled
over a bet and Pemberton threatened
to kili him, at the same time drawing
his pistol. Giles then stepped up to
the table and said to Pemberton,
"Don't do that, Pete, we are ail
friends." Pemberton then turned and
said: "I will kill four or five of you
fellows," and then shot Giles four
times through the body.
Giles got his gun after he had been
shot a couple of times and fired four
times, but as lie was fatally wound
ed, his aim was bad. Pemberton then
shot at Darling, but missed him and
then lacked out the back door. He
afterwards gave himself up to the
Giles died within a few minutes af-
, ter being shot. The coroner's Jury
j rendered a verdict Sunday morning- to
j the effect that the killing was done
i with murderous intent. The prelim
inary examination will bo held to
morrow and he will nave to wail until
next October for a trial 4u the dis

of the best night officers Wins.ow
ccr had. '
STORY OF SHOOTING. AS
TOLD BY EYE WITNESS.
A well known lno.iness man . f
Winslow, who was In the Parlor sa
loon at the time of the tragedy, ar
rived In the city this morning from
the west and spent the day here. For
reasons best known t ) himself, he did
not desire to have his name mentioned
in connection with the affair, but he
told a Citizen reporter the particulars
of the shooting.
He said that Pemberton went into
the saloon early in the evening and
commenced to play roulette. He lost
heavily, and finally ran out of money.
He lefi tho saloon and went to his j
own place or huwness, the wigwam
fcaloon, and secured $D0. The men in
the saloon noticed that Pemberton
had been drinking heavily, and tried
to persuade him Dot to return to the
j I anoi natoou. n v am iiw use, iiuve
ever, ana no iun, remarking wnu an
oath, "that ho would either come back
with ftime money or he wouldn't come
back at all."
When he entered the Parlor saloon
again, he walked up to the whevl at
which Walter Darling was dealing,
and commenced to play again. He In-
sisted on playing $3 on the numbers,
but was told that $2 was the limit.

was lull at the time, it being just
twenty minates till 8 o'clock.
CJty Marshal Giles was standing
near the table at the time, and . as
Pembertan went to fire at Darling
again, he stepped up, and laying- his
hand on his arm, said: "Let's don't
have any fight in here, Pete." Terri
bly enraged at tue interference of the
marshal, IVmberton wheeled around,
and like a flash emptied bis gun into
the officer's abdomen at close range,
causing almost instant death. As
Giles staggered back he drew his own
weapon and emptied every chamber
before he dropped dead. His aim
was poor, and Pemberton . escaped
without, a scratch.
In the meant line everybody in the
saloon was hunting cover and Dar
ling ran around the table and jumped
over the bar to secure his gun. Be
fore he got it, Pemberton ran out of
the back door of the saloon and gave
himself up to Constable Kellehan.
SHERIFF REFUSES TO PUT
PEMBERTON IN JAIL.
The constable at once turned his
prisoner over to Sheriff Houck of
Winslrrw. The sheriff did not place
Pemberton In Jail, but took him to
bis home where he is guarding him.
Houck has pledged himself (o be per
fectly responsible for the prisoner.
This action on the part of tho sheriff
in showing Pemberton so much favor
is because of a peculiar state of cir
cumstances. About three months ago, Pemberton
accompanied Sheriff Houck to Canon
Diablo, near Winslow, to capture two
nun wh i had held up the Climax sa
loon In Winslow the night before and
escaped with a large sum .f money.
The officers came uiMin the bandis
very suddenly and a fight ensued.
One of the robbers was In the act
of killing the sheriff, who had emptied
his gun, when Pemberton shot- and
killed the robber, thus saving Houck's
life. It is because of the apprecia
tion of Pembenon's brave deed in
saving his life, tiiat the sheriff will
not allow the murderer to be taken
