Pat Uann, an old time ranchman of Socorro .oiinty, wan shot and almost instant ly killed last Monday evening bv a neighbor, Henry Steen, at Gann'B h'ime on his ranch In the Apache Creek country near Aragon. Steen haa arrived here in an automobile from Jiagilalona to wive himself up to the Authorities and his hearing will be hsld on Saturday or Monday. Steen iliiims self defense nnd his story of the killing Ih that he fired the dead ly shot at Gann only after the latter had fired several times at Steen with t rifle. Both men are well known through out the county and had been neigh bors for some twenty years. In that remote section. Gann had the repu tation of being a hard drinker, hav ing laken ttie Keeloy cure some years ago. but it Is said that he recently relapsed into his former habits and had been drinking steadily previous to the killing. According to Steen's account of the tragedy, early Monday afternoon, tlunn asked Joe Winn, a man who had been working fur him at the ranch, to go fix him a toddy. "Go nx it your self. If you want it," responded Winn, angered at the peremptory tone of the ether. Later, high words having paused in the meanwhile, Steen rode tip on his horse with the intention of passing the night at the ranch house. Just as Steel) appeared, Gann came out of the house and opener, lire on Winn with a Winchester. Steen ar riving -Just .In t.me to knock up the miiEile of the Run as It went off, so ,th:it Winn escaped. No further dem onstration was made until about dusk. when Gann attain emerged from tne rouse and ordered the two men to leave thu ranch at once, applying numerous 'ibnsive and profane epith ets to both. The two men agreed to have and went out and saddled up their horses. Inrtead of mounting at once, Stem started to lead his horse out of the yard, passing in front of C.ann, us he did so. Steen says that Cjnn at that moment raised his rifle and commenced firing, four or five bullets flying wild, owing to the growing darkness and the evident (iidition nf (iann. Steen Bays he then retreated behind his hor.e, unlimbered bis own rifle nnd returned the fire, the third bullet finding its mark: t.triklng Gann in the arm between the wrist and elbow, circling; up the arm and then flylnK off into the breast. "Well, you not me," Gann aid, and fell limply forward, dead us a stone. It in naiil that Gann while intoxicat ed had frequently been heard to threaten to shoot various persons, to shoot up the town," or to commit other violent deeds, but as far as known this whs his lirst actual gun fight.

FIVE MEN HANGED YOUTHFUL CULPRITS PAY GRIM PENALTY FOR CRIME Believed That Wholesale Exe cutions Will Revive Agitation For Abolition of Capital Pun ishment in Illinois, IB Morning Journal I.AUwd Wlre.l Chicago. Feb. 16. Mure toci. -vere hanged In Chicngo today than suffered death for throwing the Haymarket bomb In the ttnurchist riots of 1886. Two murders caused five men to walk to the gallows and drop to their deaths through the trap,, while lour were hanged for the ' Haymarket bomb throwing, Frank Shlblawskl, Ewald Shlblaw skl, his brother; Phillip Soinmerling. and Thomas Schullz, slayers of Fred W. Guelow. Jr., a truck farmer, whom thev killed In cold blood after robbing him, died while their spiritual adviser was seeking to convince a judge that the four were Insane. The execution of the men, who were hanged in pairs, the Shlblawskl broth ers lirst, cut short the plea. The hanging of Thomas Jennings, a negro, who killed clarence HilbT while attempting to rob the Hilier home, came after Judge Lnndls, In the federal district court, had denied a petition for release on a writ of habeas corpus which set forth that Jennings had been convicted on finger print evidence, which he had been compelled to give the police in viola tion of his rights. Judge Landis did not rule on the competency of the evidence, holding that the point. If taken to the federal courts at nil. should have been carried directly to the lnlted States supreme court from the state supreme court. He also declined to consider the affidavit of a photographer that he had been asked by the police to re touch photographs of Jennings' linger prints and criticised the man who made the affidavit for delaying; 10 make his statement until the trials and appenls were over. The rive hangings cuused many to discuss the abolition of capital pun ishment In Illinois. Sheriff Zlpimer said: "I sm not so sure I believe In the wisdom of capital punishment. It is the law and we are here to carry out the law, but It seems to me that Im prisonment for life without hope of commutation or pardon, at hard labor, whose proceeds could he given to the widow or orphans or other depend ents of the victim, would-be a greater deterrent to crime.

Mr. Phillips, who , 7. in Albuquerque lust night enroiite to Culllornla from his home in New York, makes no pretensions of being a political expert. His opin ion Is that of Hti interested spectator, and Is based upon what he believes to be the prevailing sentiment among the masses of the people in the east. The American Magazine editor Is a man of letters, A new author In terests him more than does a political Idol. But this loes not mean he Isn't Jntereatcd in th general trend of events political In this country. In fact, he Is exceedingly well advised us to each of the candidates, repub lican and democratic, considered pos sibilities for the presidential nomina tion this yeur. In an interview with a Morning Journal reporter, Mr. Phillips talked interestingly of polities, authors and the publishing uuslness. Asked what the feeling was In the east as to Hoosevelt's probable candidacy, the chances of Tuft to be renominated, what effect LaKolletle's campaign for the republican nomination would have and v, ho would win as between Wil son. Harmon and Clark, Mr. Phillips said : "Sentiment Jurt now In the east, eiv,,York especlall, appeurs U favor Kooscvell and Harmon as the respective standard bearers of their parties. The east believes that Hoosevelt, If he runs, will be elected, as iiL'ainsi Harmon or any other dem ocrat. However, that Is w hat the r.entlinent now Is. The political at mosphere Is ro muddled at this time, that when It clarifies at convention limes surprising changes may take place, Tlie east does nut seriously re gard President Talt lor renomlnatioii, While IjiFolletie has many nuppor lers and a host of admirers, he but little chance to secure the nnminii ni this yeur.

Then the 'third term' cry might be raised against him In the campaign with such persistence, as to endanger his election. "As for IdFollette, his recent nervous breakdown will hurt his can didacy as It has seriously Interfered with his Itinerary. By the way, I hap pened to be at the banquet nf the American Magazine publishers in Philadelphia last week, when Senator UiFollette collapsed. He had the sym- j, pathy of everyone present. He is an atue statesman hiiu o.e ,10 iius ..one wonders for his home stale of Wis consin. He is absolutely sincere In his campaign to secure the nomlna tion for president, lie is not u stalk ing horse Kir anv other candidate. "If It were not for the fact that he is so far from the east and to a large extent unknown to the masses of the Am. rlcan people. Governor Hiram Johnson of California, would In my opinion, be the logical dark horse candidate In the Chicago con vention. But located as he Is, geo graphically and because little Is known at large of his splendid record in his home state, he Is not to be con sidered, at least, this time. "As between Wilson, Harmon and Clark, It is a hard guess. The pre vailing opinion in the east Is that Harmon will Und the nomination, the eastern and middle western stales be ing practically solid for him. Wilson is also strong, bis strength lying mainly in the south, ( lark does not appeal stlongly to the east, but 1 learned as I tame west that his strength. compared with that of Wilson and Harmon, Is almost equal ly as great.
