Shot Down In Cold Blood In Hit Store—Tel.
tlmmy ol Witnesses to tha Affair—Two
Suspects Under Arrest In tblt City—
Tha Evidence So Far Obtained
Sheriff Burr and Coroner Campbell last
night returned from Puente, whore they
had been all day investigating tlie cold
blooded murder ot John Hayes by masked
ruffians on Thursday night. As brought
out by the testimony of witnesses at tlie
coroner's inquest tiie story of tho killing
is as follows:
Together with his brother, Thomas
Hayes, the deceased conducted a general
merchandise store in Puente, and in con
nection held the office of postmaster. At
about 0:30 in the evening Tom Hayes
went home, leaving his brother to close up
for the night. The latter went over to a
saloon kept by a Mrs. Dietzel and had two
glasses of beer, iv company with the pro-'
prietress, her 14-year-old son and an old
man named Bryant. Then Hayes left and
returned to the store.
A few minutes later the Dietzol boy went
over to the store to secure a newspapei to
read, and on reaching the place saw
through the window two masked men with
revolvers holding Haves up. Dietzel quick
ly comprehended the situation and ran
back to the saloon, secured his revolver
and called to Bryant to oome along, ex
plaining what he had seen. Both entered
the door but were received by the bandits,
who ordered them at the muzzles of their
revolvers to pass through to the rear of the
store. This they did.
In the meantime John Hayes had gone
into his bed room nnd secured a lamp and
his revolver, returning just after they had
passed behind the partition into the rear
room. At his appearance with his weapon
the robbers opened fire, fatally wounding
Hayes, and then made their escape. All
ot the witnesses of tlie affray gave their
testimony, but none were able to throw any
light upon the identity of the masked mur-
W. P. Bryant was first seen. He is a
rancher but resides in a room next door to
the Dietzel saloon, which is some lifty
yards from the Hayes store. At about
0:30 he and Hayes had two drinks with
Mrs. Dietzel and her boy Johnny, after
which Hayes left to lock up the store for
tlie night. The boy shortly followed to
fetch a" paper and returning quickly said
that two men masked with gunny sacks
were robbing the store and had Hayes cov
ered. Bryant and the boy started for the
store and on the way the lad discharged
his pistol. Arriving, they went in ond were
received by the men and ordered to pass
on to the rear. They did so and when
Hayes appeared with the lamp Bryant
shouted to him to drop it, upon which the
men fired two shots and fled. Bryant then
ran to Tom Hayes' house and gave tho
alarm, returning later with the brother,
when Hayes was already dead.
The Dietzel boy next testified. His name
was John William Dietzel and he was 14
years of age. All of Bryant's statements
were corroborated, save that he said he did
not discharge his revolver while on the way
over to the store. When the robbers forced
them back of the rear partition Dietzel said
that Bryant did not stop, but skipped out
tlie back door. He, however, waited be
hind the wall. As. Hayes appeared with
tho lamp and tlie revolver in his left hand
some one cried out, "Drop that light," and
the shooting began. Johnny insisted that
the taller of the robbers lired one shot,
Hayes fired one as he dropped, and the lad
took a pop at the men in the darkness.
Hayes fell forward on his face, the lamp
broke and the oil flamed up on the floor,
the murderers meanwhile escaping by
means of the front door.
He described the men as one tall and
tlie other shorter and stouter. Each had a
gunny sack pulled over his head with holes
for the eyes. Over his sack on his head
the taller wore a white slouch hat, and
had on a black coat such as is commonly
called a "slicker." When the men con
versed they spoke in a shrill, assumed
voice which, added to their disguise, ef
fectually prevented identification.
Thomas Hayes said that he lived some
ten minutes' walk from the store, and af
ter he had started homeward, on reaching
the corner of the hotel, he heard a pistol
shot and saw the flash. This was thought
to he a signal that Tom bad gone home,
and that the coast was clear. At the time
he thought nothing of it, however, and pro
ceeded to bis house. He had been there
but a few minutes, when old Bill Bryant
came rushing in with tbe news that two
men were holding his brother up at the
store. When they arrived at the spot, all
was quiet and John was dead on the floor,
the only light being that given off by the
flames of the burning oil from the shat
tered lamp. Near John's left hand lay his
Dr. Fred P. Cave explained tho nature
of the fatal wound. Tlie ball, of 11 cali
ber, penetrated tho right breast, and
passing through the lung, lodging in the
spine just under the skin.
George B. Mills told of having seen two
suspicious looking characters hanging
around his place that evening just before
dark. Their description tallied with that
of the robbers in some respects. The tall
man wore a white hat and a black coat,
and the short one a black crush hat and
light overcoat.
After hearing all the evidence the jury
brought in a verdict of death by a gunshot
wound at the hands of parties unknown.
The body waß brought to Los Angeles and
taken to Sharp ft Samson's, where it will
be prepared for shipment to San Fran
lining the afternoon two arrests were
made by .sheriff Burr at Puente and the
parties were brought to this city. No
names were given and the men may be un
justly suspected. Certain circumstances,
however, not developed at the coroner's in
quest, caused their detention pending in
vestigation. ÜBtli further and more con
clusive evidence has been obtained their
identity will not be divulged.

work done by Price's Baking Powder.
Chimney Flue Afire On Broadway Creates
A blazing chimney flue in the Bancroft
hotel at 727 South Broadway, was the
cause of much excitement shortly after 8
oclock last evening.
Tlie air being chilly, Mr. Wickersham,
the proprietor, started a fire in the fur
nace in the cellar. For some reason the
draft wa9 poor and a bunch of paper and
rags was lighted and thrown in with the
idea of burning out tbe accumulated soot
in the chimney. The iicheme worked to
perfection, for soon flames were shooting
several feet above the top of the chimney
and the Hying sparks set lire to a lot of
gunny sacks which had been spread over
the top of a skylight to moderate the
glare of tlie sun.
These blazed up, and a lady guest, seeing
the flames, shrieked, while one of the male
attaches ran for tile lire alarm box, A
partial panic ensued, and the occupants
began to pack their valuables and belong
ings, preparatory to getting out. On tlie
arrival of the engines the lire was extin- i
guislidd before any damage had been done.
A Large Number of Local and Visiting Ca- ;
nines are Entered !
Entries for the forthcoming bench show I

Cocker spaniels are this year divided in

never been done here before, there not

Among the St. Bernards there will be
shown the imported bitcb Yreka, whose

the gentleman from the east who recently

corner of Colorado street and Raymond

of iron and plate glass. Both sales Were
made through the agency of B. O. Kendall,

One of the most desirable improvements
that has been suggested for some time is
the one the residents of Illinois street are
now agitating, namely, to widen that
street and extend It east to a connection
with Santa Anita avenue, and thence to
the broad avenue running to and through
the town of Sierra Madre, under the name
of Orange Grove avenue, east, since it is
a direct extension of that famous boule
vard. This would make a beautiful av
enue all the way to the foothills at Sierra
Madre, forming an easy grade for the res
idents of that place to come to Pasadena,
and in Its entire length Orange Grove av
enue would then be a handsome boule
vard, some five miles in length, and afford
ing unexcelled views of mountain, hill and
plain at the background of fine residences
and grounds.

they went through his clothes without,
however, finding anything but a 2-cent
piece. The footpads were concealed be
hind some bushes near the corner of Pasa
dena avenue and Green street when he
came by. He has not reported the matter
to the police for the reason that they se
cured nothing and he is none the worse for

Framer of the Indiana Military Bill Made
Well by Paine's Celery Compound
Major Robbins of tbe Second Indiana
State guards, Bide on Oeneral MoKee'a
staff and president of Camp Oray, has
been for two years one of the most
influential members of the Indiana
legislature and the author of the famous
Indiana Military Law of 1889.
Major Robbins was a vary siok man
np to the time of taking Paine'a Celery
In proof of what that remarkable
remedy can do to make a sick person
strong and well, Major Bobbins' letter
from Indianapolia best tells its own
straightforward story.
"I was troubled with a torpid lirer,
constipation and the accompanying
sallow complexion, while my entire
nervous system was entirely deranged,
and I waa greatly reduced iv flesh.
While in this condition I was taken
down with a very severe attack of the
grip, and waa, for a long time, oonfined
to the house and my bed.
"Iresorted to various medicines and
tonics, and under their temporary in
fluence made several attempts to re
sume my business of traveling about
in the interests of A. Htelfen, cigar
manufacturer of this city; but relapse
succeeded relapse, and I not only was
obliged to abandon my business, but
growing gradually worse, became appre
hensive of tbe ultimate result.
"At this juncture my mother-in-law,
who had used your remedy with grati
fying results, prevailed upon me to
commence taking Paine's Celery Com
pound, and it, gives me great pleasure
to state that I at once began to feel its
beneficial effects.

I "My appetite, which had failed me,
returned, my constipation ceased, and
very soon my liver became normal in
its action. Following this my sleep
lessness and headaches ceased, and I
began to Rain flesh. The insidious hold
on me that the grip had hitherto wee
relaxed, and I felt invigorated and
strengthened, bo I could resume *jr
vocation and feel free from the Unfmtfl,
enervated feeling that had so long
possessed me.
"My friends were pleasantly inr
prised with the change in my condi
tion and I waa only too happy to rec
ommend Paine'a Celery Oompoand to
such of my acquaintances as were • of
fering from any of the oompleiata
which so complicated my case. There
fore I again say, I feel Impelled try a
deep sense of gratitude to eipreee how
much 1 have been helped, for I now
feel and look like a new man."
Physicians who rely on Paine's Cel
ery Compound—as thousands of the
most wide-awake members of the pro
fession are doing, especially now that
nearly every one feele tbe need of a
genuine spring remedy—phyeloiana
know very well what that languor and
that tired feeling means. They know
that debility today often results In
nervous prostration tomorrow, unless
the tired system is qutokly Invigorated.
That is why all over the country
today Paine's Celery Compound le be
ing taken by the advioe of skilled phy
sicians. It is the one remedy that
physicians can conscientiously call a
genuine spring remedy. Try lt.
