(Continued From Page One.1
her mother ran into the hallway. Lair
son fired the first shot at Mrs. Shelton,
the ball striking- her on the head. The
girl ran through the screen door onto
the small rear'gallery with Law son af
ter her. He grabbed her hand as she
started to jump the railing s.u thus
threw her to the concrete -alk below,
where he fired two shots at her before
she regained her feet. The struggle
then followed on the grass in the rear
yard during which the woman was fa
tally shot in the stomach.
Wife Trle to Shoot.
"While the negro was being overpow
ered by the neighbors, his wife ran
back into the house and securing 'a six
shooter, started out the front of the
house toward where Lawson lay and at
tempted to shoot him but was prevented
by the crowd which had gathered. She
was placed in J. A. Smith's auto and
taken to Providence hospital, where she
was immediately operated on by Dr.
Hugh Crouse and D. C. F. Braden.
Her chances for recovery are one to
200, according to the statement of the
physicians. The bullet pierced both
walls of the stomach at the lower end
and passed through the pancreas. It
lodged In the abdomen. According to
the physicians the greatest danger is
from septic peritonitis as a result of
the perforation of the walls tof the
stomach. The woman also has a slight
scalp wound where it is thought one of
the bullets grazed her head.
Mother Will Recover.
Mrs. Shelton was taken to Hotel Dieu,
Where the bullet was removed by Dr.
Braden. The wound, while a very pain
ful one, was not serious and the woman
will be removed to her home as soon as
she recovers from the shock. The three
monthsold baby was cared for by the
neighbors until it was taken to the
hospital, where Mrs. Shelton could care
C. C. Shelton is one of the best known
negroes In El Paso. He has been a
resident here since 1SS6 and is one of
the characters of the town. He has
conducted his hardware and second hand
store at 116 South Oregon street for a
number of years and has accumulated
a small fortune. Both he and his wife
are well liked by their neighbors on
North Campbell street and in case of
sickness In the neighborhood, Mrs. Shel
ton is the first to offer her assistance
and to prepare her southern dishes for
the sick. The veteran negro was over
come by the tragedy at his home Mon
day morning and, It was with difficulty
that he could walk to the hospital.
At Hotel Dieu his aged wife worried
so much about her daughter's condi
tion and the baby until it was necessary
to administer a sedative to quiet her.
According to the mother's statement,
which -was disconnected and rambling
because of the excited condition of the
woman's mind, the first they knew of
the presence of Lawson in the house
was when he entered the dining -room.
"Shelton had Just gone to the store,"
she said, "and Drucle was drinking a
cup of tea with me at the breakfast
table. She saw Fiank before I did and
ran, screaming, into the kitchen. I ran
into the hall and he shot at me from
behind. She ran to the kitchen door
and he shot at her and again after she
fell over the railing. He had whipped
her and beat her when they lived to
gether and we made her come home
where she could be treated right."
Xelchbor See the Shootinir.
C. A. Gjampbell who lives in the house
adjoining the Shelton house on tHe
south, was asleep in his room when the
trouble started and he saw the shoot
ing through a north window. He says
that the negro woman fought desper
ately for her life and It was only after
the negro had overpowered her that he
was able to shoot her in the stomach.
Campbell attempted to find his shotgun,
which was in the house, but was unable
to find it. He says he had an excellent
chance to shoot the negro through the
window and would not have hesitated
had he been able to get his gun.
Another neighbor threw a rock at
the negro when he was trying to get to
his wife from in front of postmaster
The feeling was strong against Law
son and there were open threats of
lynching by the neighbors immediately
following the shooting. The feeling
reached such a pitch that a piece of
chain was procured and placed around
his neck, but the proceeding was stop-
ped by .T. A. Smith, who ordered the
negro held to be turned over to the
police. Ray Smith, the son of the post
master, was at his home across the
street and as soon as he heard of the
negro's attempt to shoot his father, he
rushed to where the prisoner was being
held and it was with difficulty that
young Smith was prevented from doing
the sullen negro violence.
JVegro Defies the Crowd.
When he heard the threats of lynch
ing him, Lawson defiantly told the crowd
that they would not hang him. "I am
a Mason," he shouted, "and no Mason
was ever hung. I have the papers in
my inside pocket to show." This only
infuriated the crowd more, as it was
plain that the ne'gro had gone to the
house prepared to kill the entire family
and had taken the papers with him,
thinkinsr that these would save him
! from being hung.
It was reported ori the streets Mon
day that the feeling against the negro
was very strong among the members
of the El Paso negro colony, as Shelton
is one of the leaders of the race here.
The negro was transferred from the
city to the county jail at once, although
the police and sheriff's department ex
pect no trouble.
Lawson was arrested by mounted of
ficers Davis and Fenley.
Complaints have been fiied by county
attorney Bridgers charging Frank Law
son with three assault to murder counts
against J. A. Smith, Mrs. C. C. Shelton
and Drucilla Lawson.

Tea, says the tea man, is the hardest
thing in all the world to tell good
from bad by mere looks. Even the ex
pert is baffled. The cheapest sort of
tea and the very best may look similar
to the eye, but when brewed and In the
cup, to the taste there Is a world of
difference. "Why then should not the
peddler, the tea fakir and the cut rate
grafters buy the scum of the tea and
offer a worthless premium with it and
get a good price and. still make a nice
profit? That's exactly what Mr. Prem
ium man does. He depends upon his
worthless premiums to sell his flavor
If you ever try Chase & Sanborn's
teas and then that sold by Mrt Prem
ium man you'll note a difference. A
difference so marked that you'll never
again buy premium tea.
The wise cook says: Give me Chase
& 'Sanborn's tea and I'll brew you a
cup of tea that no one can find a- fault
with. It will taste delicious, appetiz
ing. It will cure that tired feeling. It
will convince you that in the world of
tea, there is no other that can equal It.

GOOD AIRDOME BILL.
Playing to a capacity crowd, the Air
dome company presented one of its best
summer comedies Sunday night. The
handle is "A Poor Inventor," but the
chap who invented the bill is not so
poor when it comeg to injecting a max
imum number of laughs to the square
inch into the play. Charles Le Roy
who adapted the corned, staged it, and
played the part of Patrick Horatio
Ring to tho amusement of a highly
pleased audience which completely filled
the Airdome ana left a few standing
around the edses.
The plot is not as thick as the smoke
which hovered qver the outdoor .theater,
but It was a string sufficient to tie a
lot of clean, clever comedy to and to
allow even more singing or popular
songs, a thing that a summer theater
crowd takes to like a fat man to a bath
