Mother, Married Sister and Her
Husband to Come to
His Relief
Declares He Was Followed by
Men Seeking His Life;
Awaits Fate
Frank M. 8011, slayer of Attorney
O. P. Widaman, was Bitting on the
edge of his little prison . bunk yes
terday morning when * ray of sun
shin., entered the cell and shone Into
his eyes, making-the cell appear as
bright as the outside world, for the
prisoner's mother, living in El Paso,
Texas, had heard of her son's troubles
and dispatched the following message:
"I understand it all and will stand
by you. Love,
From Mother.
Shortly after receiving the news from
his mother. Bell received a second
telegram from San Francisco which
read: Will leave for Los Angoles this
evening. Have you arranged for at
torney? When will trial bo? Answer

Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Coles.

National bank of El Paso, Texas, and
Mrs. Coles Is Bell's sister. The Coles

when they heard of tho shooting, and
are expected to arrive this morning, j
■ Bell slept soundly during Saturday
night and when ushered Into the pre
sence of newspaper men yesterday
morning appeared much stronger than
when he stood trembling at tho pri
son door following; tho .shooting Sat
urday morning.
He held his mother's telegram and
it was only at the mention of tho dead
attorney's name, that the joyous look
left his features and was replaced
by an expression of tinlf sorrow and
lialf relief, as ho Bald, "Attorney
Wldaman Is before his Maker now, in
a court where ho has to explain. As
for myself, I don't particularly care.
I have no home, my wlfo and child
are not with me, my money is gone,
but gentlemen, when my time comes,
I'll go boforo my Maker with my head
Ills eyes again sought the message
that was flashed out from the Lone
Star state and again his face shone
with hope.
"My wife," murmured the prisoner,
and after a short lapse said, "I have
nothing to say against my little wife,
for place any woman in the position
she was put ln, and she would act the
same way. Wldaman is answering for
her part ln this trouble now."
"I don't want sympathy; I just want
a square deal. If I had been given a
square deal by people I trusted this
thing would not have happened."
When Bell Informed the newspaper
men that he would relate the incidents
leading up to Saturday morning's af
fair it appeared that the man spoke
with feverish eagerness. Bell's story
"After being released from this very
same jail for the third time I went to
my old homo ln El Paso, Texas, to seek
/ work, and I tell you it was good to bo
with mother and sister again. ---
"lt was only for the sake of mother
and my sister that I held back from
making a stand hero against Wldaman
and Sanger, for all I wanted was to
be let alone. I wasn't looking forward
to taking anybody* life, though Wida
man -continually asserted that I would
' kill him. Hardly had I 'settled down in
El Paso when two men from Los An
geles began to follow mo around, and
then I thought that my life was in
danger. Fearful lest they kill me, I
bade mother goodby and left the old
home for Cananea, Mexico, where I
obtained a position with the Consoli
dated Copper company as an elec
trician. I wasn't there two weeks be
fore they promoted me to engineer
in charge of tho electrical department
of the mines, but I .was fearful lest my
presence in Mexico become known to
those two men who had followed me in
"Men, you don't realize what sort of
feeling came over me when I walked
those mountains to and from work!
Why, at the slightest sound I became
alarmed, and night after night I awoke
with fear, for even in my sleep my
mind was always on those two men,
and I was afraid they would shoot me
down like a dog.
"A few days after taking charge of
the shops I notice*! that one of the two
men who had followed mo in Texas
had secured employment in the shops
over .which I was boss, and on the
very first day he grossly insulted me.
He was a man over six feet ln height
and weighed over 200 pounds. I could
have discharged him, but I did not, for
I wanted to see what his game was.
"He always carried a revolver, and
on numerous occasions tried to draw
me into a quarrel. One day as I was
passing a deserted shaft house he
grabbed me by the wrist and attempt
ed to draw me in, but I broke away,
and when ho again came to the shops
and insulted me, I openly accused him
of having been sent there expressly for
the purpose of killing me, and he did
not deny It. -
"The electricians there threatened to
lynch him, but I told them that if he
was put out of the way it would be
only a matter of time before they
would send another man out, and then
it would go harder with me.
"The fear of being killed . grew
stronger, and finally I gave up my job,
for I could not stand to wait there
for an assassin to get me. I then de
cided to return here, and I know posi
tively that one of the two men wired
Widaman' that, I had left the mines.
Before leaving I told the big man that
I did not propose to be killed like a dog.
"I arrived at Santa Ana last Fri
day and was very sick and unable to
eat Saturday morning. I bought a
round trip ticket to Palo"Verdes.
"I wanted to seek work there. When
I looked out of the car at Artesla" I
saw Wldaman comirig toward me,
looking full at me all the while. If
there is a truthful person who was on
the car, you will learn that I went
back on seeing Wldaman, but he kept
advancing. When he put his hand in
his'pocket I turned around'and as I
remember it, and from what other
people tell me, I walked into the open
and when 1 thought he was going to
draw a revolver, I fired and what af
terward happened I can't remember.
I'm depending solely on the truth to
get mo out of this and my only con
cern is for mother. When I go to
trial I will have witnesses who can
prove every statement that I have
made, The chief of police at El Paso
will come out here to testify to cer
tain things."
As Bell was led back to his cell, he
again opened the telegram from . his

Clubwomen and many magazine,
readers of the city will bo Interested
ln the announcement just received hero
of the marriage of Miss Dora" Bachcl
lor and Lynn Haines of Minneapolis.
The marriage took place at the homo'
of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Elvira B. I
Sickles, 3200 Portland avenue, Minne- j
apolis, July 12.
Miss Bachollor was one of the bril
liant speakers of the spring at the :
Friday Morning club, when she was I
proud to term herself one of the 6,500,- ;
000 of working women in the United i
States. Her address on "The Woman
in Industry" was brimful of helpful
suggestions and contained many ref
erences to her own experiences in the
various trades in which womon labor.
At the time sho gave that address
Miss B&chellor promised her friends
here that she would return' in the au
tumn and establish herself here, and
then she would go more fully Into tho
conditions surrounding the working
women in California. She said there
was much interesting material to be
Gathered about local conditions and
suggested that her revelations would
surprise tha authorities here.
W.C. T. U. Department
Extracts from the address of Mrs.
Elizabeth Mills at the Institute held
in Anaheim.
in the thirty-seven years since the
organization of the Woman's Christian
Temperance union not only have fifty
two governments been united in white
ribbon bands but we have been liter
ally as well as spiritually fulfilling our
Great Teacher's command, "Go preach
my gospel to every creature." At
our world's convention, held In Glas
gow, Scotland, last month, the mother
heart of many nations was represent
ed. Many men were there, too, heart
ily in accord iwitb the temperance
cause. People grow interested in re
sults; when they bear and see our
working force, our forty-six depart
ments supervised by earnest, Christian
women who never know defeat where
the betterment -of humanity and the
safety of the home is the Issue, they
take notice. These departments give
every woman a chance to help. ranees
Willard, our sainted leader, said: "It
Is within the power of all to enlight
en, to uplift, to comfort." That, my
sister and my brother, means you and
mo. What a blessed thought that we
"belong"—that we are a part of the
over one-half million workers in this
campaign for God, home and human
ity. We remember again what
Frances said: "I am but one, but I
am one; I can do something; what I
can do I ought to do; what I ought
to do, by'the grace of God I will do."
ln every woman there is, I believe, a
desire to help spread Christ's gospel
to the world's widest rim, but she
lacks self confidence, as no two people
can be approached alike on any sub
ject. Paul knew this when he said:
."I am willing to be all things to all
men if 'thereby I might save some."
But Paul never compromised principle
—he studied men—studied human na
ture. Our W. C. T. U. workers have
studied—are still studying humanity
as never before—and are becoming
tactful and resourceful.
The national president's address at
the last great convention ln Omaha
was a review of the . national and
world's work for the past year, and
was the best I have ever. read. It
should be in the har.ds of every W. C.
T. U. woman, as every word of it Is
educational. '
It Is our duty as members of this
union to arouse an interest in the
work among our neighbors through
our own enthusiasm. In order- to do
this I would recommend, first: Do not
allow any small thing to keep you
from the regular meeting. Bead,
study and prepare for it. I would rec
ommend that each member select dur
ing tho week somo item from the daily
papers bearing on the uplifting and
reformatory work of the l world j and
give from three to fivo minutes' talk
upon it, or select liome prominent wo
man and in a few brief words give
the lesson of her life. Havo a little
time at each meeting for "Current
Events," "Great Characters," "His
tory of the W. C. T. U. Departments
and Their Superintendents,", or any
subject that appear to you as being
interesting and helpful. If each mem
ber would do some of these things
you would be surprised at the interest
and enthusiasm thai, would be aroused
and the new members who would be
attracted to your meetings."

In addition to lecturing this young
woman was a magazineo writer and
associate editor of the Housekeeper.
Her articles of travel and concerning
civic matters aro especially inter
esting and she used her pen with sym
pathy and skill.
Just what effect the marriage of this
brilliant young reformer ■ will have
upon her work is not announced. As
her husband is a man of high polit
ical position, a lawyer of repute and
the father of two children, it seems
probable that tho home cares which
matrimony will bring will crowd out
interest in the more general pursuits.
Of a sweet, winsome personality, as
dainty as a Dresden statuette in col
oring and style of dress, the drawing
room seems a more appropriate set
ting for the little bride than the lec
ture rostrum. Her friends here, and
she made many in the brief season of
her visit last winter, will be quick to
offer congratulations to Mr. Haines
and will cherish the hope that further
visits to this coast may be made, even
though the big work for relieving the
conditions surrounding working wom
en which was anticipated may have to
be dropped.
meetings, followed with a very inter
esting parliamentary drill, after which
she gave an instructive talk on "The
Flags of All Nations." "The time was,"
said the speaker, "when each nation
was in a measure isolated from all
other nations and was dependent upon
its own resources to considerable ex
tent; but the great advance In com
munication and transportation of the
last half century has girdled the. earth
and brought all together in one bond
of general interest and national broth
erhood. This feeling is demonstrated
in times of great affliction, such as
the breaking out of a dreadful epi
demic or loss of Ufa and property by
floods, fires, earthquakes. Immediate
ly the whole machinery of relief is set
in motion and every nation sends aid
to the afflicted.
"Our own country is growing in
population rapidly, as people are com
ing from every quarter of the globe
at the rate of a million a year; and
when the Panama canal Is finished a
large influx of foreigners will come
direct to the Pacific coast. Two great
steamship companies have already an
nounced their Intention of bringing
emigrants direct to our ports, and it
will be a problem the people will hove
to solve how to take the great num
bers of poor, and many ignorant, peo
ple of all nationalities and make them
over into intelligent citizens.
As the different flags were presented
the speaker commented upon their
significance and the condition of the
people over whom they waved. . The
flag of Mexico, with a condor crush
ing a serpent in its talons, may prove
emblematic'after all, for they have al
ready introduced scientific temperance
instruction in their schools and in
time the great condor of intelligence
may crush the serpent of intemper
ance in our sister republic.
The flag of Italy was represented
as floating over a nation, one-third of
whom are beggars. But even in that
wine-drinking country there is begin
ning an awakening of the people. Re
cently an" anti-alcohol congress and an
anti-tuberculosis congress were held
In Milan.
In Belgium there is a dramshop for
every forty-four persons. There are
also 8000 defective children whose
fathers are drinking men. Next to
Belgium comes France as a drinking
nation; and there the birth rate is
yearly decreasing. In Russia only 3
per cent of the population can read.
They make a kind "of whisky from po
tatoes which they call vodka and near
ly all drink. The peasants are miser
ably poor. In Denmark the Socialists
are strong and the condition of the
people improving. Iceland now has
total prohibition. Holland is a drink
ing country where they manufacture
Holland gin, which is 50 per cent al
cohol. . Queen. Wllhelmlna .never
touches liquors of any kind. In Swit
zerland temperance Is taught in the
schools. In Japan no student of any
age in the schools of that empire is
allowed to use tobacco. The W. C. T.
U. Is strong and Influential. In Tur
key none are allowed to drink. All
saloons are run by Christians and the
liquor is used by them. The Moham
medans have many refreshing non
alcoholic drinks.

Republican Delegates and Lead

Senator Burton Declares That
Nomination for Governor
Is Anybody's
(As-octal*- Press)
COLUMBUS, Ohio. July Pro
vided with little more than an opinion
as to the head of the ticket and fac
ing a reasonable certainty of a light
over the platform, all but two of the
party leaders and a good half of the
delegates are already gathered here
for the Ohio republican convention
which opens Tuesday afternoon.
James It. Garfield, head of the "pro
gressives," and Walter Brown, leader
of the Toledo Delegation, are still
absent. Senators Burton and Dick,
however, with George H. Cox of Cin
cinnati, Wade ii. Ellis, chairman of
the state executive committee; Carmi
Thompson, secretary of state and one
of the candidates for governor and
other leaders were in conference with
their followers all day.
As to tho governorship, Senator
Burton voiced the general opinion to
day, when he said the contest was
anybody's ' fight. He added that it
was improbable that he would take
no part in the fight. • .
Warren G. Harding, who arrived to
night, gave out a statement in which
he declared that " he was the candi

Wade H. Ellis, chairman of the state
executive committee, told tonight what
he believed should be incorporated in
the platform. He says that it should
contain "an unqualified indorsement"
of President Taft and his administra
tion and that it "should approve the
Payne bill, not because it is perfect,
but because it removes excessive duties
under tho Dingley law."
The active cAdldates for governor
are Judge Brown, Warren G. Harding
of Marion, former lieutenant gover
nor, and Cartnl Thompson, secretary of
state. In addition to these it is be
lieved that James R. Garfield will be
placed In nomination, providing the
platform to be adopted Wednesday
is sufficiently progressive."
The name of Nicholas Long worth Is
prominently mentioned as a compro
mise candidate. He will deliver the
keynote speech Tuesday afternoon and
it is pointed out that a successful ef
fort would bring him to the fore in
case of a deadlock.

"Dark Horses"
OYSTER BAY, July News that
Judge Reynold S. Kinkade of Toledo
has declined to be considered as a can
didate for governor of Ohio on the Re
publican ticket brought forth no com
ment today from Theodore Roosevelt.
Two other men In whom Colonel Roose
velt has a deep personal interest are
also mentioned for this nomination.
They are James R. Garfield, his close
friend, who was his secretary of the
Interior, and his son-in-law, Repre
sentative Nicholas Longworth.
When they last met Colonel Roose
velt let it be seen that his warm per
sonal regard for Garfield has not been
affected by the latter's attitude toward
the Taft administration, but he is un
willing to express any opinion, under
present circumsances, as to Garfield's
stand in Ohio politics. He frankly ad
mits his deep interest in the situation
in Ohio, but will let no further state
ment be drawn from him. \
There were no visitors at Sagamore

Roosevelt and Archie went to church
in the morning. The remainder of the
day the colonel spent quietly.
Clambers Over Roof to Recover
Arrow, Despite Warn

In endeavoring to regain an arrow
which had accidentally lodged on the
roof of a house at 211 North Beau
dry avenue, Morris Harris, 12 years
old, yesterday afternoon fell from the
roof to the ground, a distance of al
most forty feet, but escaped serious
Injury. He sustained a fractured left
wrist and several abrasions of the face.
Morris and several other boys In the
neighborhood had been amusing them
selves by shooting arrows. The sport
came to an abrupt ending when one of
Morris' arrows lodged on the roof of
the house. Despite the warnings of
his playmates not to attempt to get it,
Morris procured a ladder and climbed
to the roof. Catching hold of loose
shingles and working his way down
the roof to the eaves, he finally was
within reach of the arrow. As he
reached for it he sipped and fell to
the ground.
He was taken to the receiving hos
pital, where his injuries were treated
by Assistant Police Surgeon Carter.

GOLDFIELD, July 24.—Development
on the Lind lease on the Booth is pro
gressing energetically with a great deal
of encouragement in the character of
the vein that is being followed by the
drift on the 260 level. The drift has
been driven on the vein about 160 feet,
and is now out in the neighborhood
of the dividing line between the Booth
ana Oro. There is from two to three
feet of low grade ore in sight, a por
tion of which is highly oxidized and
the balance shows sulphides in liberal
quantities. Recent assays give an av
erage of about $4 a ton. While this
lacks considerable of being "pay," it
is encouraging as evidence of miner
alization which may open into good
values at any time.
The problem of finding a persistent
ore shoot in this territory has long
attracted attention and search by
mining men, and although the effort
has not yet been crowned with suc
cess, their faith in the final outcome
of development on the east slope of
Columbia mountain remains strong.
A station has been cut at the 250
level of the Weber lease on the south
end of the Booth, and a crosscut will
be driven to open the vein which was
cut and developed on the 150 level,
where several small bunches of good
ore were found, but-, not in sufficient
quantity to make a commercial prop

Supply Committee Asks $10,000
Appropriation to Begin Work
on Municipal Warehouse
A municipal storehouse is to be con
structed on property belonging to the
city and facing on Avenue Eighteen,
if the supply committee can induce the
finance committee to set aside some
money in the budget for this purpose.
The supply committee has asked for
$10,000 to begin- this work, although
Councilman George Williams, chair
man of the committee, believes that
$15,000 should be apropriated.
The committee looked over the
ground last week and found that in the
V •formed by Downey avenue, the
Buena Vista bridge and Avenue
Eighteen there are two pieces of prop
erty that came Into possession of the
city when land was condemned for the
bridge. One piece especially, at the
corner of Downey and Avenue Eighteen,
has four lots and is regarded as the
most suitable location for the proposed
It is the plan of the supply commit
tee to construct a large building on
this property that will serve the double
purpose of municipal storehouse and
machine shop. When the storehouse is
completed supplies that the city is
constantly purchasing will be bought
in large quantities and delivered to the
various departments as needed. By
purchasing in large quantities the city
can buy its supplies at a cheaper rate
and a uniform quality is assured.
The municipal storehouse has been
talked of by previous councils, and the
one preceding the present body went as
far as to set aside $5000 in last year's
budget to begin the work. But the
amount was insufficient to accomplish
anything, and the money was turned
back into the general fund July 1,
If the present council will vote $10,000
for the purpose the supply committee
believes something can be done for the
storehouse as well as the machine shop.
The machine shop is intended to repair
the city's automobiles, patrol wagons,
fire engines and other machinery that
it now costs thousands of dollars a
year to keep in repair.
