In a loud, firm tone, and when asked
if the alleged outrage was the reason
Mrs. Rarker left the church he shouted

strong, positive, absolute.
It was n hard day for Mrs. Barker,

of Miss Jessie Morrison for the mur

Miss Morrison's clothes were ruled out

El Taso, Tex., June 21. A. It. Shep
herd, who as the governor of the Dis
trict of Columbia transformed Wash
ington from the mudhole of ante-bellum
days into one of the most beauti
ful capital cities of the present day,
narrowly escaped assassination
Wednesday near Batopilas, a little
town in Mexico. Shepard was shot at
by n Mexican in amfbush. It was not

foe followed and kept up a running

human target, anil Shepherd reached
his mines In safety.
Ilea Keen Mining Since 1870.
News of the attempted assassina
tion spread among the miners, among
whom Shepherd is popular, and par
ties were sent out to search for the
would-be murderer. Th search was
not successful, and fih.ii abandoni-d.
Shepherd is at a loss to explain the
motive prompting his assailant. Shep
herd has been engaged In the tninlnjj
buistiess at Batopilas since !!. soon
after he 'was deposed us governor of
ColuniTiiif. He left Washington the
most unpopular of men. He was
called, "boss." anI va.s credited w-ith
having planned iuTproviuefrfiT changed
the grade of streets and avenues, laid
out parks and otherwise beautified the
iipital city of the nation, changes
which at first sight apicnred to the
residents and landowners only as an
other form of higher taxes for an In
Wa Very I'npopular at Washington.
Having been virtually turned out of
office by the taxpayers of Washington
in 1S44 Shepherd returned to his
plumbing business. But he found his
business gone, and so uniopular was
he personally with thepeople? of Wash
ington that householders actually re
fused to give his firm orders. Within
a year after retiring from the position
of governor he failed, and his failure
figured up near the $1.0oo.noo mark.
His creditors were eventually paid in
full, and the "ex-boss." so called.
started for Old Moxio to make a for
tune. He located at Batopilas. His
first venture was a failure, but he con
tinued, and now has faith that his lat
ter mines' will prove more profitable.

In spito of the fact that the plan to
transform the place into a modern
ty had Im-cu uniopuhir. Shepherd
bad continued the work. The citizens
lot only had protested against the lav
ish expenditure of money, but had met
in local halls and denounced the plan
of improvement. They also accused
the governor of corrupt methods. They
said that he was a member of a cor
rupt ring, and that the vast improve
ment! were planned ami carried out
simply to give the members of the ring
who osed as contractors and sultcou
tractors a chance- to put the bulk of
the money appropriated Into their own
The tax rate naturally was n
crcad, ami denunciation of the self
willed governor who refused to change
in the slightest detail his plans for the
transformation of the city was hc.-trd
on every hand. In 17-1 he was de
osei as the controlling spirit In the
district office. At that time he had
spent $10.(K0.W!0 In effecting the
change in Washington, and had left
as an Inheritance on the taxpayers
debts to the amount of $27,000,000.
But the work had been done, or was
in such a stage that it had to 1e com
pleted. And completed it was. and on
the magnificent scale outlined by Shep
herd. Shepherd returned to Washington
in 1S!C. after persistent request of the
taxpayers. The old style or system of
lorn, jjovomujent has been changed
, justea(1 of covernor (uPre WPrt
! three commissioners. And that was
not the only change he noticed. The
1 people the same who denounced him
and his methods In 1874 were clamor
, lng to entertain him. It was a great
day for Washington In tne summer or
lSii." when i.ie people received as their
welcome nnd honored guest the man
who had been driven out of ofilee In
1VT4 for beautifying the city. i
An open-air reception, and a banquet J
characterized the return of Shepherd.
Many pleasant things were said to
him. He was praised for having the 1
foresizht to plan, away back in 1871. !
to make Washington what she was
then and is today, one of the most
beautiful cities. Due credit was given
him for doing the correct thing In the
face of protests and actual abu.se.
