of the Climax Bottling Company, today
shot and killed W. J. Mallard, secr:
tary and treasurer o: the- company, ar.d
Rc bert Hamilton, its president, and
then killed himself -v.ith the. Fame wea
pon. A second revolver loaded in
every chamber wa found in Turner's
pocket, and it is believed he planned to
take more lives. The shoot ir.;i was
caused by a U.aiel b -cvvt-en the thr23
men over an aliened uort--ge in Turn
er's account, f r v h he was threat
ened with cri:ni.;:i! prosecution.
The tragedy occu: rd In the of.ices cf
the law firm Cart nr. Adams & Meln
ley, in the h?nrt of the Wall street
district. during the busy noon hour.
Turner, who was 45 years old and lived
at Mount Vernon. N. Y., a suburb cf
this city, was a cousin cf Governor
Odell of this state. The lrad cf the
law firm in vh- . se offices the shooting
occurred is Pre-sideiit Cantor of th
borough of Manhattan.
Scon after the rhsts rirg out in th-?
otlice building a wild rumor started
that the borough president had been
All the principals in the tragedy were
married. Mallard was 36 yea:s old and
a native of Atlanta, Ga., where he was
well known in business and social cir
cles. Hamilton lived in Pittsburg,
where he was president of the J. T.
and A. Hamilton glass "acttries. He
was about CO years of age. He arrived
at New York yesterday In response to
a telegram from Turner received at
Pittsburg which reid: "Meet me In
New York Friday and I will scttlo v.ith
you." ,
The three men met In the law ofTiec3
by appointment tn allow Turner to
make a partial settlement and he was
askll for a certified check. "I have
it." he said, and thn he closed the doer
of the room. An Instant later he drew
:i revolver and began firing. Mallard
fell, shot through the heart, and Ham
ilton lived only a few moments. All the
other persons who were In the room,
clerks and members, fled in a panic.
After killing Hamilton and Mallard,
Turner shot himself in the head. Some
moments later, hearing r.o more shots,
the persons who fled returned back into
the room and found the three bodies.
With Which Jose Beltran Will Soon
Be Blersed.
Jose Redtran, an inmate of the peni
tentiary at Yuma, has Just one more
week to serve. He will probably wish
that that one week might be stretched
out into fifty years, for soon after the
xpiratlon of his sentence he will most
likely be overtaken by a sudden and
violent death. The fact is that he ia
wanted at Juarez. Mexico, for the mur
der of a chief of police there several
years ago. He was then known as
Nicolas Ladamez. He escaped Imme'di
ately after the murder and came to
this territory, where he took the name
of Reltran. A little less than four
years ago he was convicted In Yavapai
county of grand larceny and was sen
tenced to the penitentiary for four
years. His term will expire next Wed
nesday. A couple of months ago the Mexican
authorities learned that Beltran was
the murderer of the chief of police, and
steps were taken for his return to that
republic. Application was made to
Governor Brod'e for his surrender
upon the completion of his sentence,
and the matter was referred to the
state department. The governor has
been authorized to turn Eeltran over
to the-Mexican authorities, and Senor
of before the plan Is accepted by the
miners will be that of taking care of
all the men. The condition of the
mines are such that all the workmen
cannot be given work immediately and
some will have to wait for weeks be
fore the companies can take care of
them. The operators v.-ill net dismiss
the non-union men In order to give
employment to the returning strikers.
It Is understood that the union will
take care of all such men who fail to
find employment. This will be done by
drawing funds from the relief fund,
which is said to be still growing.
Antonio Ponce de Leon, chief of police
for the district of Juarez, arrived yes
terday armed with authority to receive
him. Before hs can be surrendered there
must be the formality of an examina
tion which will take place at Tucson
before the United States commissioner
next Thursday, the day after the ex
piration of the sentence, when Beltran
will be identified by an officer from th'j
penitentiary of Texas, where he had
been confined before the, commission of
the murder.
Reltran or, as he was then known.
Ladamez has a long criminal record.
He had been convicted in Texas of a
crime and sent to the penitentiary for
a long term. He escaped before the
expiration of his term ar.d went to New
Mexico. He was guilty of several
crimes in the vicinities of Mesiila and
Las Cruces. When New Mexico got too
hot for him he fled across the border,
and it was while he was crossing that
bo killed the chief of police who was
trying to arrest him.
The official from the penitentiary who
has ccme to identify him says that in
asmuch as the republic of Mexico will
dispose of him forever. Texas puts In
no claim to him as a fugitive. The
Mexican way Is the cheaper, quicker
and the more permanent.
Senor Antonio Ponce de Leon Is the
most military looking gentleman who
has invaded this territory for a long
time. He Is clad with the regalia of
hi3 office, a black suit resplendent with
sl!v?r braid and shoulder straps. He
also carries a sword, with which he
does not Intend to kill Beltran, but
which he wears for the purpose of
showing that he can kill him if he
wants to.
Beltran will not live long after he
crosses the line at El Paso. He has
already been doomed. All the Mexican
authorities have been waiting for all
these years was the victim.
Why Ee Is So Fierce Daytimes and So
Meek at Night.
The city recorder had twa cases to
deal with yesterday. Each case is a
threc-pct drama with various scenes in
each act. and but two acts in each case
have been presented so far.
Harry Watson was found in a box
car the night before along with a
bridge builder, who gave the officer
a strong tali and evaded arrest. Har
ry's command of language was les?
Impressive nnel he was jailed on a va
grancy charge. Act II found him in
police court, where he Faid he was an
h or.es t .miner from 'Jerome, etc. It
ended by the ret order tcdling him if he
ically desired tc be sentenced he would
accommodate him If he appeurod In
court at 4 p. in. today. Act III will
probably see handsome Harry hiding
hor.cely. The ether case was ore of th
kind that makes everybody sad. The
defendants were two half-grown lids
who feared the frightful sentence that
is 'likely to follow their riding on the
Fidewalk after the warnings of the pe
nce. Their counsel was their mother,
who appeared in act II and pleaded a?
r.nlv n mother can. and who brought
into action an array cf extenuating
circumstances that appalled the court.
She was sad, of course, and the Judg?
a.'ter hearing her arguments wa3 sad
der than anybody. He thought first
that he would gc- to jail himself in
atonement to the outraged law and let
tho youngsters o free to worry the
democratic police some- more. Then
he thought ajrain and decided that he
wouldn't, because the' democrats are
almost worried tc death now. So he
had cne of the boys put up his bioyel?
as a bond that both of them would ap
pear in court today and try to square
things up some way. The record?r
ays he is worried more by children
that are b:g enough to know b?tt"r
and too young ti pur.ih, and who are
tronerallv triven free rin by their pr-
i "nts. thin bv all th-1 ro't cf the com
munity con-biro'-). Hp Jrvec chndren
betifr than anybody, but has found out
that the only safe Cme to let hi heart
melt Is when there are no children
around. He tries to do most cf his
"yearning" at night, so nobody will
catch him at it.
Arizona Charlie and Party Return to
Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, October 17. The "'Ari
zona Charlie" party of Tiburon Island
explorers reached Ixis Angeles today,
having made the voyage through the
Gulf of California and up the Colorado
Several landings were made on the
island, and once the party went about
five miles inland, but no effort was
made to explore further. The natlvas
were friendly.
Charles Meadows ("Arizona Charlie")
faid that while he did net think tha
Serl Indians wire any above being can
nibals, he had no fear, and would wil
lingly undertake to rid the island of
them with a weil armed force of thirty
or forty men. The natives are armed
with bows and arrows and a few
knives. There ai e two tribes cf Indians
on the island, or at least two divisions
of the Seris, one of which would not
make friends with the explorers and
seemed hostile when approached.

His Party to Become the Controllicg
One of Great Eritain.
Roster., October 17. On the steam
ship New England, which arrived tiom
Quot-nstown and Liverpool today were
John E. Redmond, M. P., chairman of
tho Irish parliamentary party and
president of the United Irish league:
John Dillon, M. P. for East Mayo, and
Michael Davitt. Their arrival had been
long looked forward to by all Irishmen.
a3 thp.y are to address the numbers of
the United Irish league which will hold
its national convention In this city be
ginning Sunday night.
Mr. Redmond in spea:ing of the pres
ent conditions in Ireland and ni mat
ters relating to the United Ir ish leagu
said: "The. United Irish leagu9 is the
ruiing power In Ireland today as truly
as ever the Lnnd league was. The gov
ernment was plfced into our hands by
the coerc ion policy and now the country
Irs aroused. We nre on the settlement
of the Irish land question and after
that national self-government will
speedily rome- to Ireland. The Irish
party new in th-! house of commons is
the only real opposition in the English
parliament, and I believe the day is
near at hand when it will have the
controlling Influence in Great Britain.
Hundreds of Irishmen are Imprisoned
under the coerc ion ac t without receiv
ing any trial by jury. But nobody cares
for imprisonment under these circum
stances. The more the people are at
tacked the higher their spirits rise."
Changed the Whole Thing.
"I used coffee all my life until two
years ago, when I was forced to dis
continue it," writes a- lidy firm Mem
phis, Term. "My health became so
wretched that li.'e was almost a bur
den. "I suffered almost continuously with
nervous headache, dyspepsia and ex
cruciating pains in my back. My. heart
action was feeble, and I suffered in
tearely from a feeling of suffocation
?r oppression. Wan extremely email
ciated and debilitated, and so nervous
that the slightest exertion cr excite
ment would produce very distressing
symptoms. My physician pronounced
my trouble nervous prostration,' ar,d
could give slight relief.
"A friend urged me to stop di inking
coffee and try Portum Food Coffee and
r.clz the result. My first tr ial was not
satisfactory, owing to the indifference
of the cook, but the next time, she
followed directions carefully, and I
'cund it decidedly good. After using it
about two months, I awok-3 to the fact
that my bad symptoms had almost to
tally disappeared, and that my health
was better than It had been for sis
-ears. I had nr. headache; my heart
troubled me only at rare intervals:
could eat with perfect imymnity ; gained
llesh, and was generally much stronger
than formerly.
"I had dl -continued medical treat
ment when I be'gan to use Fostum, and
ccirir.cn sense supports me In the con
viction tint Ptstum alone was the cur
otive agent in my case. My children
are quiti fond of it. and I take comfort
in the thought that in Fostum they ob

The Same Favor fcle Impression Made
There as Elsewhere A Further
Exposure of the Statehood Argu
ment. Mesa was the next stopping point on
the triumphal tour of Hon. Robert E.
Morrison last night. The people of
that wide awake town did not believe
it was possible to bring out so many
people to u political meeting, but they
were there. The largest hall in the
place was Inadequate to hold the
c rowd.
A special tiain which left here at
half past six o'clock arrived at Mesa
a lilt!;; after seven. Mr. Morrison, who
had KjK'nt the day at Tempe, boarded
the train along with many of his
friends. At Mesa the train was met by
a large delegation preceded by the
Mesa band.
The ciowd, which was new a large
uiie, was led by the band and the Pi-o..Lc-r
band of Phoenix to the largest
hail in the town. People had come in
from the surrounding country. The
ftre-.-ts were filled with vehicles. The
capacity of the hall is about tiOO, and
it was filled to the limit. Many who
were anxious to see and hear Mr. Mor
rison were unable to get in. Upon the
plattcrm with Mr. Mcrrison were the
county candidates.
The enthusiasm of tha audience had
been manifested upon the arrival of
Mr. Morrison in the city, and it grew
uv.til the last word had been spoken.
i The first speaker of the evening was
Judge Klbbey, who was Introduced by
the chairman. Judge Klbbey spoke fcr
the most pai t of the territorial issues,
though he also dwelt generally on the
piosperity which had attended the rule
of the republican party. He concluded
hi address with a eulogy of Mr. Mor
rison, who he said, though not so large
a man physically as Colonel Wilson,
was immeasurably larger in his capac
ity for usefulness as a delegate to con
gress. The reception of Mr. Morrison when
he was introduced must have been ex
tremely gratifying to him. The warmth
of it w-as never surpassed at a political
mot-ting. The audic-r.ce reminded him
throughout 'the address that it was in
full sympathy with him.
lie discussed the trust question In a
clear manner, and he went over the
platfcrn.s of the two parties, shcnvlr.g
that the republican party of the terri
tory had given the farmer ami the la
bo; cr an earnest of its purpose to bene
fit them. On the other hand the dem
ocratic platform promised what it
could not perform, and which it was
well known it could r.ct. The party had
never done anything of value for any
clss of citizens, either in thi3 terri
tory or the nation at large.
The most telling part of the speech
of Mr. Morrison was the exposure erf
the only argument of the territorial
demcerats In favor of the election of
Col. Wilson, that it Is necessary to se
cure statehood. That is a doctrine that
Marcus A. Smith is ir. luxuriously
r-caching in th? scath. Mr. Morrison
quoted an interview In the Tucson
Post with Senator A. G. Foster of
Washington, a somewhat higher au
thority than Mr. Smith, in which he
said that a republican senate wculd
not bo particularly Inclined toward a
territory which had no other merit
than that it had gone democratic. ,
The impression created by Mr. Mor-ri.-cn
at Mesa was the same favorable
one that he has1 made wherever he has
been during the campaign.' His next
stepping place will be at Florence.
At the close of the meeting Chairman
Lewis announced thit a water meeting
would be held next Monday.
