When General William Walker was
shot for filibustering at Truxillo.
Honduras, on September 12, 1SG0, he
said to the people who had gathered
about the police square to see him
meet his doom. "The war wnich I
made on Honduras was unjust. Those
who accompanied me are not to
blame. I alone am guilty. I ask
pardon of the people. I receive death
with resignation. Would that it were
one for the good of society."
He then sat on a chair to which he
was bound. A file of ten soldiers ad
vanced and fired on the instant. He
died immediately. The soldiers gave
thiee cheers and all was over. Walk
er was but thirty-six years of age
at the time.
Walker was a daring character and
seemed to believe that his "star of
destiny'' had great things in store
for him. Few adventurers of his
class ever ran such a. race of short
sighted and fatal folly. In 1853 he
was the leader of an expedition which
sailed from San Francisco with the
intention of taking possession of
Sonora, then a northern state of
Texas, adjoining California. He land
ed at a place called La Paz. where
he met with but little resistance. He
proclaimed "an independent Republic
of Lower California," and himself
president, at the same time appoint
ing each one of his sixty followers to
some official station. He very soon,
however, had to exacuate or starve
and surrendered himself to the United
States authorities. On his arrival at
San Francisco he was tried for a
violation of the neutrality laws, but
was acquitted.
Early in the summer of 1855, Walk
er placed himself at the head of an
expedition numbering about sixty men
to proceed to Nicaragua, then in a
state of internal conflict. He landed
at Realejo and marched to Leon to
join the headquarters of the Nica
raguan Democratic party or army.
Here he hoped to have his dream
realized, that of forming on the
Isthmus a broad domain to be ex
tended into Mexico and Soutii Ameri
ca. He succeeded partially at first.
Brushing the Democratic chief aside
Walker now proclaimed himself a
candidate for the Presidency, and
was, of course, elected. Being now
dictator he began to run things to
suit himself, and to his credit it
must be said that his acts were,
upon the whole, fair and just. But
the odds against him were too great,
and will all Central America in
league against him, backed by Europe
and the United States, his cause was
doomed. Defeat followed defeat, and
in January, 1857, he abandoned Gren
ada and took refuge on a United
States vessel, which landed him at
Panama.
Two other attempts were made by
the impressible man to invade Nicar
agua, both of which were frustrated
by the United States authorities, and
in June. 1860, he invaded Honduras,
where he met with a vigorous re
sistance and was eventually captured
by the British and turned over to the
native Honduran authorities. .
ft was on the third of September
that the arrest was effected and on
the following day he was turned over
to the Honduran authorities with
several of his officers. The march
of. the captured men to prison was
slow and solemn. Walker, at the
head of his men. Keeping time to
the beat of the drum, and dressed
with much simplicity, was the object
upon which every eye was fixed.
As soon as Walker had entered the
prison he was placed in heavy irons
and, being asked if he needed any
thing, replied with but one word,
"water." Soon afterwards he sent for
a chaplain. As he knelt at his feet
he said: "I am resigned to die; my
political career is, ended."
There was a mock trial which was
wholly unnecessary for the outcome
was known before it started, he was
to be shot. It was not until the
eleventh hour that Walker was In
formed of his doom. It was seven
o'clock in the morning ,when the
messenger brought him the news,
and his only reply was his asking at
what hour he would be executed,
and if he should have time to write.
On the twelfth of September, at
eight o'clock . in the morning, the
condemned man was marched to the
place of execution. He showed
throughout the greatest coolness,
not even once changing color, while
walking from the prison to the place
where he was to be shot. Two
soldiers, with drawn swords, ad
vanced in front of him, and three
with fixed bayonets followed behind.
In his right hand he carried a hat,
and in his left a crucifix. It was
here his great dream and his event
ful life went out together.

More Than $300 Over Tar
get Raised by the Com
mittees on Financial Cam
paign Which Ended Last
Night
Over three hundred dollars more
than the budget for the nine months
to come was raised by the Young Wo
men's Christian Association, in their
campaign which was concluded yester
day evening. The sum total of the
work for the week just passed was
$3434. It was raised in four days time,
by work of four teams and their cap
tains, for the expenses of the Y. W.
for the coming nine months. Beside
the amount of the Y. W. there are still
due from pledges some several hundred
dollars.
"We wish to state the Young Wo
men's Christian Association's thanks to
the whole city," said Mrs. 33. N. Phil
lips, last evening. "Their support of
the campaign was loyal. Their treat
ment accorded the representatives of
the Y. W. was always agreeable. And
the way they came to the aid of the
institution, when they were called on
speaks words for their generosity and
well wishes for the association. We
wish to thank each and every citizen
in Phoenix. They deserve it.
"The success of the campaign was
due primarily to the way the people
came to the aid of the association. But
back of that, there was the spirit of
the movement in the workers of the
Y. W. The feeling of 2 percent. Inspi
ration and 98 percent, perspiration, in
stilled in the workers by Miss Janes,
district manager for Arizona, did won
ders for the campaign. The personnel
of the workers, their personality, the
cause, the need of the money for the
association work, all of them were con
tributing causes of its success. We
have won out, in a most successful
manner, and again I want to thank
Phoenix, alt of it."
Miss Lillian E. Janes, district man
ager of the Y. W. for Arizona, left im
mediately following the successful close
of the campaign for her home in Cali
fornia. Before leaving, she stated that
she had never had the privilege of
working with more congenial people
and more loyal than she had found
right here in Phoenix.

EARL (Q. WILSON
MAKERS OF RED-MAN COLLARS
COLORED WIGS WILL
BE
Consignment Already on the Way Will
be Shown at Vic Hanny's Window
The Republican carried a story yes
terday morning which reviewed the
newest of fads in the east, the wearing
of colored wigs to match "my lady's"
gown.
Much space has been devoted in the
metropolitan publications to the inno
vation in feminine adornment, and the
discussion that has arisen in many of
the social circles in the east has created
two factions. One of the younger set
opposed to the fad, and one of the
older devotees of fashion, who have
seen fit to favor the style, if so it may
be called. A critic in reviewing the
chance of the wigs becoming popular,
has pointed out the possible fact, that
the older set may have had method in
its madness when it indorsed the wear
ing of the colored hair pieces, for age
is sometimes not conducive to luxur
iant hair. At any rate, the fad is so
far advanced that Lady Duff Gordon,
who is the last word in feminine fash
ions, in the east, has seen fit to not
only discuss it, but preUict that it will
be a popular fad.
When the Republican item came to
the eye of the management of the Sa
voy Theater, a telegram was dispatched
to Louis B. Jacobs, who is in the east,
asking him to secure wigs for several
members of his company and to pro
cure gowns to match. Last night a wire
from him announces that the wigs and
gowns are on their way to Phoenix
;and at a date to be announced later,
they will be shown publicly to Phoeni
j cians. They will be placed on exhibi
tion in the shop window of Vic Hanny's
store and later will be worn by Miss
Wainwright and Miss Simpson.
