2LLBUQUEEQTJE EVENING CITIZEN.
'SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1906. Adt THRtfc - THREE III SHOT ON THE TRAIN IE From Olobc Telegram. Thor lras a bloody and tragic se quel to the arrest of Jack Purvis at Bowie Wednesday, on the charge of stealing span of mules from the Warrior Copper company, which he had sold tr Crowley & Shearer of rice. VV..rn Dt-puty Sheriff George Shan ley reached Bowie on his return from J'iioenlx. where he had taken Keener, the Insane patient, to the asylum, Jack Purvis was turned over to him to bring to Globe for trial. Shanley execiscd the usual precaution taken ' by an officer of searching his man, but later, when tho prisoner expressed a desire to get a package he had left with a friend, the officer granted his request. But when the prisoner re turned from his quest Shanley neglect ed to again search htm. And out of this oiWaslon grew a tragedy that may cost several lives. Fired Five 8hots. When the train reached Rice, on Its way to Glohe, A. F. Wilbur, forward ing agent of Crowley & Shearer, boarded It to Identify the prisoner. He NEAR LITTLE PRACTICE, BUT WEST POINT'S FOOT BALL TEAM IS 6BEAT A TOTAL OF ONLY TWENTY HOURS ALLOWED THEM TO GET READY. BUT THEY GIVE BIG 6IX A HOT TIME. Special Correspondence. West Point, N. Y.. Oct. 20. The young man who elects to make a name for himself on the gridiron at Wteat Point, undertakes a. task that would make the average college can didate for football honors hesitate and consider. The cadets at the United States military academy are beyond doubt the busiest students In the world. WHth nine hours of study and reclta. tlon, two of drill and parade, three for meals and eight for sleep, the cadet's time from 6 In the morning till 10 at night Is fully occupied. When it is remembered that what remains Is scattered along in half hour periods throughout the day, and that the cadet has a multiplied) of little errands to attend to In addi tion to his routine duties, the wonder prows a to where on earth he finds time for football practice and train ing. From reveille, at 6 a. m., unt.ir breakfast, half an hour later., there Is a period in whtch each cadet Is sup posed to sweep, dust and arrange his room and prepare himself for break fast. By rising before reveille, the football man can do all this and be free to use the half hour gained In sprinting around the big grass plain, after which he hurries Into uniform for breakfast. At 9 o'clock cadets may. if they so desire, make down their beds and go to bed. Taps, when all must be In bed, sounds at 10 o'clock. During this time the football squad, by spe cial permission, turns out for anoth er Jog around the plain. During the season, about forty men of the squad are fed at training ta ble, where hot food and fruit are served in addition to the regular bill of fare of the corps. Candidates are, of course, required to eschew tobac co during training. With the first of September, prac tice begins. Members of the squad nre required to attend all drills and parades and this means that four days cut of the week they get in barely i-alf an hour of practice. In order to do this they are excused from supper with the battalion. By hurrying from parade they can reach the field by 5:45. From the field they so to the bath rooms and the rut. Tier, then to supper, atd, when that DEFENDANTS OBJECT TO POSTPONEMENT OF TRIAL A Roswell dispatch, dated October 18, says: The main feature in the t'nitel States court today In the land fraud cases was a motion made by Major l.iewtllyn, United States prose cuting attorney, in the cases against B. H. Tallmadse of Denver, C. L. and E. R. 'laiiniadge of Chicago and others to have the cases continued. The mo tion waB made verbally, and hrought out animated discussion. The attorneys for the defense made a strong plea to have the cases tried at the present term, said all of the de fendaats were present, and had pre pared for the trial at a great expense and wanted immediate trial, as they claimed it was a case of prosecution and O-y would be vindicated by a fair trial. The principal reason given by the government for asking the continu ance was Ucause ti. tases tried pre viously were still in the supreme court bavins h'vn taken there by the gov ernment as appellant, and the gov ernment wanted these case finally de posed u. before trial of the new ones. Judgf Pope ruled that the United S-au-K attorney should file his motion U n.. r- ;ipt to s;rike a rosponsivu chord at this s.-a.on than at anv other. That's l robably because you've had a prosperous season au.'l yo'ir i noughts are with your folks and former friends "back east" or ' un north." and there Is a yearning io visit them and again see the old fjmiliar places.

The walked up the aisle to where Shanley was slttln , and when he reached him ishanley arose and walked over wt'h him to another seit whrre the iris oner was slttln.? by himself. is this tiie man?" Shanley asked, "who sold you the mules?" "lfa the man." replied Wilbur. Just then, quick as a flash. Purvis drew a 82 revolver, to the surprise of everyone, and placing it to the alc domen of Wilbur, Bred. Hardly had the sound of the shot been heard before Shanley Jumped on to his murder-bent prisoner, trying to secure the weapon. He was at Pur vis' left side, and throwing his right arm around the prisoner's back he tried to hold the hand that grasped the weapon. He partly succeeded, for It Is the opinion of Mtssrs. A. T. Smith, Duncan and others who board ed the train at Rice and saw the whole occurrence, that the second shot was Intended for the officer. But the prisoner's aim was ("icflcctrd and the bullet plowed through the side of his own hend, blowing away a big piece of the skull and exposing the brain. So strong, however, was the Impulse In the man to take unman life that he succeeded in emptying the revolver before he relinquished It. The third shot, a wild one. struck Percy Vincent, a machinist's helper, who hnd been to Tucson with one of the loco motives Injured In the late fire in the railroad shops here. This shot took effect in Vincent's groin. The next two shots did no damage. Looked Like Charnel House. The train proceeded on Its way as rapidly as possible, that medical "nlp might be secured. Arriving at Globe, Purvis and Wilbur were taken to the county hospital and Vincent to the TTlMI Is over, it is time for them to bottle down to study. On Wednesdays there Is no drill or parade and the time for practice is extended to about an hour. On Saturdays, when there is a half holiday, they manage to get In a cou ple of hours. This brings the tim for practice up to about five hours a week. The system at West Point confines practice almost entirely to that of the fundamentals of the game. Every available moment Is spent In perfect ing each man In the rudiments, tack ling, getting down the field, kicking, handling and falling on the ball, un til fumbling or falling on a kick or tackle is reduced to the minimum. On the other hand, this training fits them to take every advantage of any in writing, and the , decision will be made tomorrow. The following new land fraud cases in the United States court were set for trial today: United States vs. Attorney J. B. At keson, William B. Linnell and Hannah Llnneil, for alleged perjury and con spiracy to defraud the government, set for trial October 24. United States vs. George Roberts. Ayers, Francis Locklear, Zed Kocklear and others for alleged conspiracy to defraud the government, set for trial October 25. "Had dvsDcnsIa or indigestion for years.

Just as the Telegram goes to press word reaches the office that Purvis died at 12:10, without regaining con sciousness from the time the doctors dressed the gaping wound In his head. The dead man, who was only about 24 years of age. was well known about town. He had been employed at all the local livery stables, last working for Barclay, Higdon & Co.

It means that for three months ! he knows neither rest nor recreation, i There can be no let up in his routine work, no cutting of duty.
