The woman was brought to Globe

where little hope is entertained for
Neighbors in the vicinity heard
four shots in the neighborhood of
the Arto home and upon invcstlgat
ing the matter they found Mrs. Arto
lying on the floor of her home with
two bullets in her head, one in the
right' shoulder and one in the leg.
She was unconscious and up to a
late hour last night had not come
to herself. Her wounds were dress
ed by Drs. Wales and Wcightman.
Those who went to the home after
the shooting found a 32 automatic

probably the gun with which the
shooting was done.
After shooting Arto ran and was
chased by neighbors over to the
vicinity of the Mexican settlement
next to the concentrator where he
was lost track of.

MRS. MOSES FREED
OF MURDER CHARGE.
(From Sunday's Daily.)
That Mrs. F. S. Moses was justi
ficd in killing Joe Mackiu during the
early part of the present month,
was thc decision yesterday, which
Judge Moore rendered, exonerating
her after a preliminary examination
that lasted for two days. This tin
fortunate affair had previously been
considered by a legally constituted
body in a jury of six who heard the
testimony before the coroner, am
tneir verdict was that t lie woman
acted in self defense.
During the last investigation
which was instituted by Peter Mack
in, a brother of the deceased, as
the complaining witness, no new cvi
dencc of a material nature, was for
thcoming, although the prosecution
presented twelve witnesses who cov
crcd ground only of an incident.!
character brnring on thc tragedy
The defense had seven witnesses, the
majority of whom reside m the sec
tion where the killing occurred, and
on whose evidence, formerly given
wa. thc coroner's jury verdict based
The only direct evidence of the
shooting was given by Mrs. Moses j
ami ncr story was practically the
same in thc last as in the first ex1
animation conducted. Evidence was
introduced on behalf of Mackiu
which was to thc effect that the
deceased had made an oral statement
that he was shot while passing by
the Moses place, but he did not
knntv who firrd shnls. '
Judge Moore's decision is as fol
lows: "Taking into consideration the
evidence of Peter Mackiu, the com
plaining witness, as to the elevation
of thc house occupied by Mrs,
Moses, the roadway, and- the position
occupied by thc buggy being driven
ly the deceased, the evidence of
thc attending physician as to the lo
cation of thc wounds, I nm convinc
ed that the evidence of Mrs. Moses
as to thc Position of the deceased
when the shot was fired was as stat
ed by her. That Mackiu was get
ting out of thc buggy and was in
such a position at that time that the
shot took the direction as indicated
by thc attending physician. That
there is no evidence of the shots
being fired by any one else than thc
defendant nor from any other point
than the house. That had Mackiu
been in any other position than that
described by Mrs, Moses the course
of the shot and thc shooting could
not have been explained. Hence, the
conclusion forces itself upon me
that thc statements made by Mrs,
Moses arc true. Thc assault made
upon Mrs. Moses by Mackin at a
previous time, unprovoked and un
reasonable, was brutal and has never
been explained subsequent to thc
shooting. The condition of thc body
and mind of Mrs. Moses from thc
assault made upon her up to and at
the time of thc shooting, clearly
shows she was in constant fear of
her life and had reason to believe
from what had trauspiied before.
and from thc actions of Mackin at
the time of the shooting, that he
intended to carry out his threats.
I hat she was forced to protect her
self. I find her justified, and order
