Dr, K. A. Bryant, he made a state ment of the affair to Detective Bradish. The two operations consumed nearly three hours' time, it being 11 ::»0 o'clock when Chief Olass, Detective Bradish and others emerged front che room in which Was lying the wounded man, Jones, .and when the detective announced his readi ness to tell to the little knot of reporters the statement of the victim of Errington's aim. This long time is explained by the fact that the information given by Jones came brokenly ami at long intervals. About 10:30 o'clock a man of about 22 or 2;i years of age and possessed of an intell ligent face, came to tin; station tind soon it was learned that he knew tho parties to the shooting well, and also knew something of the trouble between Jones and Errington. L'pon some points this young man refused to say a word—ami one of tbeßC points was his name. Ho, however, said that by profession he was a newspaper reporter, but not connected at the present time with any of tne city papers. He volunteered the information that he had worked on the New York World, and even now sent to that journal an occasional letter. This at present i "nameless newspaper man" said: "Yes: I know the parties to this shock ing scrape well. The man who did the ■bootlne is named J.

Until two (lavs ago Jones and his wife lived on Los An geles street, between Fifth aud Sixth streets. In reply to a question as to what he knew of the trouble the "nameless re porter" said: "This morning Jones sent written word to Errington telling him that he would shoot him, Errington, on sight." Asked as to what the diffi culty was that would lead Jones to threaten tho life of Errington. ; the "nameless ref otter" said, careles-ly, as though it was a very weary, because fam.liar. subject: "Oh, Jones wife.

My wifo started to work in Davis' icstaurant as cashier last .Saturday.

I stepped in and haded her the key and told her I would not be in till ll or 10 o'clock. She answered: T will not | either.' 1 did not hear her say that, but | she told me since she did. Being as I hail I nu business around town, I went up to | the room an 1 got a pass key from the landlady and guff in and wrote on a piece of paper that 1 thought she didn't care | for me any mote, and I had better go j away.

We then had a few words and I told I her I thought she did not care much for j mo. and rather than live with a woman I who did not care for me, we had better i part. I asked her if she cared for me or I if she wanted me to go away, and she would not answer either way." So then I put on my coat and bat and went out, but did nut stay more than live or ten minutes, then went back and stayed there all night. She then said she was going to the the ater with Mr. Bidd (meaning Krrington) tomorrow evening. I told her to tell Mr. Krrington he had better look out for him* self or f would kill bim.

She answered "No." Sho alto told me Mr. Errington had made brags to several gentlemen that he would accomplish his end if it cost him his life. He also said he didn't know but what if he made a break that she might turn around and shoot him. And I made up hiy mind to follow them this evening, which I did.
