Night Watchman's Fatal Aim LIBERATES APADACA'S SOUL. The Scene of the Killing, R. Wilson's Store. Chas. Crow was the Man With the Shotgun. "A Pitcher," Says Mr. Crow, "Which Comes too Often to the Well Is Liable to Get Broken." Jose ,-Vpadaca was shot dead last night in the act of burglarizing R. Wil son's second hand store. , The shot which shoved him into the hereafter was fired by an old man named Charles Crow, who Btays in the store at night with no other object in view than to cut down burglars in the hey dey of their career. The instru ment in the hands of the watchman was a double barreled shotgun loaded with buck shot and so accurate was the aim that the entire charge of one barrel found lodgment in the burglar's face and neck, centering around the left side of the mouth. Shortly before eleven o'clock tlv watchman was Ewpkened by a noisn .3.1 the rear doors of the store. He picked up his gun and when he had approached within fifteen feet of the door he saw the burglar in the moonlight. He had already removed a heavy board cover ing which had been nailed over the sash and was ready to enter. The old man leveled his gun and fired one barrel. He knew by the way the man fell that another shot would be a waste of ammunition. The report of the gun attracted Night Marshal Wickham, who was only a block away, and soon after Deputies Widmer and Prothero from the sheriff's office arrived. The watchman was ar rested and held in custody pending the inquest. In the meantime a large crowd ar rived. The dead man lay on his face in a pool of blood. He was in his stocking feet. His shoes were afterward found at the entrance of the yard where he had removed them. He was provided with a set of improvised burglars' tools, which consisted of a small jimmy,' a steel bar and a glass cutter. At his feet lay a gunny sack and in one pocket was a flour sack, intended receptacles for plunder. The body was turned over and the iace was quickly recognized, for Jo9e Apadaca was well known in Phoenix. No other disposition was made of the body until the arrival of Justice Kin caid, who hastily subpoenaed a coroner's jury consisting of Phil Wharton, John Dobbs, E. H. Mowre, John Schriver, A. J. Kent, John Hardee, George Hughes, Joseph St. Clair. The inquest wTas set for tomorrow morning and the body was ordered to be taken to the undertaking rooms of Randal & Davis. "A pitcher that comes, to the well too often is liable to get broken," said old man Crow by which he referred to an attempt on the store last winter when he took a shot through the very same door at the burglar. How he missed him was a problem. By a concensus of opinion it was established that the dead burglar last night was the lucky burglar that time. Wilson's store has been a favorite point of attack for burglars for the past year. The last successful raid netted them about $500. It was then that Mr. Wilson decided to establish a system of espionage on hie back door and since then Mr. Crow has been a nightly ten ant of the store. The dead burglar was about 35 years old, unmarried and said to be without relatives in the city. He has figured frequently in police and justice's courts for minor offenses. He and Jeff Wilson, the colored murderer, kept a store near the depot since Wilson's release from jail until a year ago. After thafhe owned a small store on Monroe street, but failed in business.

He Declines to Make an Odious Comparison Between His Own and the Ad ministration of Cleveland. Later However He Will Tell the People of Indiana Something; Worth Printing. By the Associated Prjss. New York, Aug. 18. The Commer cial Advertiser today prints the follow ing interview with ex-President Harri son: "My position" said he, "is a peculiar one. It is hard for people to under stand how I am situated. My lips are necessarily sealed, so far as criticism of this administration goes. It would be very bad taste or form to draw com parisons between my own and Mr. Cleveland's administration. It would be highly discourteous for me to state wherein I believe this administration errs. Therefore, I have uniformly re fused to express any opinion, to draw any comparisons or to criticise and I shall continue that policy." Mr. Harrison was asked his opinion in regard to the new tariff bill and said: "I do not wish to epeak hastily of a mat ter that so intimately concerns the welfare of the party and country and goeB to the very root of our prosperity as a nation. Later I shall prepare a careful analysis of the situation and shall speak to the people during the Indiana campaign. I shall apeak two or three times and will let the people know my views on the tariff question. Some things that I eay may be worth printing." When aBked for his opinion as to the situation in New York state, Mr. Har rison said: "Let outsiders keep their handa off and attend to their own busi ness. I do not see how that anything I or any outsider caa say in the way of eijci uiagbuieiit can hwlp to restore har mony. a.11 that I know about the situ ation I read in the papers and I know the harmony of which you epeak has not yet been secured -and that the two wings of the party still maintain sep arate opinions and are as far apart as ever. Suggestions, advice or talk of any kind from outsiders would be im pertinent and ill advised. The result in New York this fall will have a mighty influence upon national affairs." When asked aa regards the Hawaiian incident, Mr. Harrison said : "Hawaii is an independent Republic. What her future may be no man can predict. I will say this, though, had the Hawaiian crisis come six months earlier the out come would have probably been differ ent. However," added Mr. HarriBon, "I do not wiBh to pass npon this ad ministration. I do wish to impugn motives." IT'S ALL ADJUSTED. The Territorial Board of Equaliza tion Adjourns.

A rare and beautiful collection of Mexican shells was placed on exhibi tion and sale yesterday at the Phoenix Fruit store formerly Candy Kitchen. It was brought here a few days ago from La Paz, Mex., by D. C. Upson, who gathered the.epecimens at great pains and expense. It comprises shells from both the eastern and western coasts of Mexico. Among the former are many beautiful pearls, some in their natural condition of attachment to the oyster shells and several ranging in value in the neighborhood of $50. There are also specimens of the celebrated globe fish so curiously shaped and spiked, of the rare and interesting sea horse and many others of fantastic shape and delicately tinted shade. A feature of the collection is the exquisite carving upon many of the shells wrought with evident difficulty by the Indians from whom they were secured.
