ARIZUNA LEPER WOMAN MAKES APPEARANCE . AT LOSJNGELES Mrs. Wardwell. Who "Dlsap peared" May Have Been Sent by Tombstone Health Officers MAY BE DEPORTEO 10 LEPER COLONY Uncertainty Exists as to What Shall be Done With Her Case Presents Sad Features -Brother May be Released From Penitentiary Los Angeles, Aug. 20. Mrs. Isa bell Wardwell, a leper, afflicted wid ow of the late General David K. Wardwell, returned to Los Angeles last night on the Southern Pacific train. The health officers had been advised of her coming and an am bulance from the county hospital met her and she was taken to the con tagious ward. Mrs. Wardwell was found locked In a compartment on the train and the health authorities believe she was returned here by Ari zona authorities at Tombstone. May Be Deported. Tombstone, Aria., Aug. 20. (Spe cial) -It is not known whether Mrs. Wardwell will be returned to Tomb stone or permitted to remain In Cali fornia under the care of the health officers there or sent to the leper colony In the Hawaii ins. It Is not believed here that she will be re turned but If she is she will be cared for. The Wardwell caco has attracted a great deal of attention and is one ot the saddest and most difficult the Ai'Sona authorities h ive experienced lu many years. General Wardwell Indian wars, one of the early settlers of this territory and a member of the legislature during the early days. For the past few years he and his wire had lived "at Los Angeles and the health officers there discovered a few weeks ago that Mrs. Wardwell was afflicted with leprosy. The officers planned to deport them to the leper colony, but before they could do so the general took his wife and went to Mexico, coming a few days after to Tombstone, their former home. Officers had been ad vised of their escape from California and when they reached here they were at once quarantined, Application was made to the feder al government for their deportation to the leper colony, but the federal government declined to take such ac tion on the ground that the leper col. ony was not a government Institution and the government could not there fore order anyone sent there, A short time ago General Ward well drooped under the arduous du ties of caring for his afflicted wife ana the anxiety her condition caused him and a few days after they had been placed In quarantine here he died. His wife then became demented and so violent that It was necessary to strap her to her bed. Both General and Mrs. Wardwell were known to a great many people throughout the territory and Mrs. Wardwell has the sympathy of her many friends. An effort is being made to secure the release of her brother from the territorial penitent iary that he may care for her during the remaining years of her life and In case she is not sent to the leper colony from California it Is probable this will be done SOLDIERS EIGOTIN f id BAD FOREST FIRES lluinc Have Almuiy Destroyed l.arge Area in California and Threaten Worse Damage, Morced.
