One of the most thrilling runaways
that has taken place in Canin City
in a long time occurred at the high
school athletic grounds immediately
following the exhibition drill of Italph
Talbot company. No. 177 shortly after
5 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and
that it did not end in a tragedy is
little short of the miraculous. Mrs.
Robert Cox and her little four-year
old daughter. Margaret, had been
watching the drill from a buggy on
the east side of the grounds and the
former was In the act of handing over
the reins to her husband at the con

Hundreds of people saw the runaway
and realized the danger to the oc

able to prevent what eeeraed to be

was made by bicylists and men on foot
to head off the maddened taorae. but

From the Pueblo Chieftain.
We present our readers with an
outline of the primary law under
which the political parties will be
organized, nominations made and elec
tions held next year, (published in
full in the Weekly Record last week:
The law is cumbersome, complex, in
effective and a disgrace to our state
because it carries not only the con
vention but the direct system of nom
inating as well. Notwithstanding all
of that It Is the law and must be fol- |
lowed next year. From then on it
must be followed in the selection of
men to fill every public office, big or
little, in the state, until some legisla
ture wiser and more patriotic than
the one that enacted this dual system
of selecting officials sees fit to repeal
It provide* for old-fashioned caucus
es followed by primaries and then a
convention or ’ assembly*’ as we must
now say. Then it provides for direct
primaries at which assembly candi-'
dates and petition candidates are voted

Is it any wonder that men of brains
say “No” when the suggestion is made
that they be a candidate for some po
sition. supposedly of trust? We think
I not. Had it been a convention system

. one would have cared but to put the
voters and candidates to the trouble
of both, the system is certainly unJusL
Nevertheless, ns said before, it is
the law and the only thing to do is to
learn It and follow it. The Chieftain
feels that every political party officer
in the state should familiarize himself
with its provisions so he will know
exactly what to expect. It's hard, to
be sure, bnt the party whose workers
more nearly know the law will" be the
party which will more nearly succeed.

The very successful entertainment
provided by the peopTe here for the
officers, representatives and visitors i
to thii Knights of Pythias grand lodge, j
the Pythian Sisters grand temple and :
the encampment of the Uniform Rank j
proves that Canon City is a good con- j
vention town and knows how to take f
care of her guests. The hspitality of ,
the community as exemplified during
the last few days made a favorable
impression on the knights and their >
friends and they expressed the hope (
that they might be able to come back
again sometime to renew the acquaint- f
anee so auspiciously begun.
The meeting of the Knights of Py
thias grand lodge and its associated
organizations here this week has
been a big advertisement for the town, ;
and, it Is believed, is the precursor of
a series of similar conventions and J
gatherings here within the next year |
or two. Having proven its ability to
handle such a body without discom
fort to delegates and visitors, and, •
at the same time, provide them with
suitable diversion, Canon City is in
better position than ever to go afte*
other assemblages of a like character.
Already we have the promise of the
bi-annual convention of the Epworth
League of Colorado for 1912 and
efforts are now being made to secure '
the annual conference of the Metho
dist church and the state conclave of
the Knights of Templar for the same ,
year. With more than ordinarily at- j
tractive scenic surroundings, with a
climate as good as that possessed by
any community in the west and a
people whose hospitality is second to
none Canon City will have to be reck-
oned with by its competitors In any
convention it goes after.

Thomas J. Murray, Who Es
caped From Pen July 25,
Taken Into Custody.
* J. F. Wortham, alias Joe A. Matth
ews, who was arrested at Tacoma last
week charged with swindling Seattle
banks out of $17,750, turns out to be
Thomas J. Murray, alas Mowrey, who
escaped from the state penitentiary
here July 25, last.
Murray had swindled Denver banks
out of $15,000 by a clever real estate
scheme and was arrested at the union
station May 10, 1910, with $14,993 on
his person, wrapped about his waist.
He was sentenced to from five to ten
years in the penitentiary, but while
working with the marry gang on the
b. :«j of the Hogback six weeks ago
he effected his escape. It is believed
his wife helped him, being near by
with a suit of citizen’s clothes with
which Murray was enabled to walk
past the guards.
He was hunted by detectives over a
dozen states, but was caught at last
through the shrewdness of a Seattle
bank teller. On August 25, Murray
swindled Seattle banks out of $17,750
in one day by the same clever tactics
he had employed in Denver, but a
bank teller happened to notice the
resemblance the man bore to the pic
ture of Murray appearing in a detec
tive bulletin and called up the de
tective agency, with the result that
Murray was arrested in Tacoma,
whither he went from Seattle, and reg
istered at a cheap hotel with most of
the money on his person.
Murray will be brought back to
Canon City to serve the remainder of
his term and then will be taken to
Seattle to answer to the charge of
swindling there. Murray has the rep
utation of being one of the shrewdest
swindlers in the country, but in spite
*of that fact Warden Tynan has con
tended ever since he made his get
