THE DAILY HERALD
MONDAY, MAY 23, 1898. Shot. Last night a few minutes af to" twelve o'clock a pistol shot wa beard on San Antonio street and a Herald reporter went in the direction from which the sound came. On arriving to front of the Gem saloon the reporter found that Officers Denniston and Dwyer had arrested Chas. Purtell for carrying coocealed weapons.and In try ing to either conceal or draw the gun it was discharged. The ball entered the fleshy part of the leg, causing a pa'nful, though not serious wound. Mr. Purtell had been up in the gambling hall of the Gem. and while there he had word with the manager of the ball. Bob Tanner. After the arrest Purtell claimed that he had not shot himself, but that it was Tanner who had shot him. Nevertheless, PurteU's pistol had an empty shell in it, as if It bad lately been discharg ed, while Tanner's was still entirely loaded. This evidence proved to the satisfaction of the two officers that Tanner wai not the one who tired the shot ko be was not placed under arrest Mr. Purtell was taken home and this morning was resting easy. Speaking of his name, General Fitz hugh Lee said not lontr asro: "It has been a heavy load. I have had the re puta'ion of a lot of ancestors as well as my own to loon alter, vvnatever good I have done has been credited to tbem, and whatever of evil has been charged to me aid magnified, because people said they had a right to expect mucb better things of a man of my blood and breeding. When I was running for Governor of Virginia John Wife said that if my name bad been Fitz- hugh Smith I never would have seour ed the nomination. I replied that I had known a good many good men named Smith, and .wou'd have been as proud of that name as of the one I wore. In that way I got the votes of the Smith in Virginia, and a letter from a man who told me 'never to forget John Smith, our first settler, who killed Po cabontas.". Excaege. Mrs. Fort received the sad news of the death of her daughter at Sioux City, Iowa. Mrs. Fort, accompanied by her daughter, Jennie, came to 1 Paso some months ago or the daugh ter's bealtb. The daughter improved and in her delight insisted on a short visit to her friends in ber old borne The mother, believing that her daughter was physically able to stand the trip, yielded to the request and she started for the east with the brightest of spirits the first of last week. Yes terday however, the mother received the news of her death and left today for Sioux City. Saturday night about nine o'clock an accident happened to a tramp in the Texa & Pacific yards. City Physician Rice was called and the Herald's man went with him. On arrival it was found that a deaf tramp tried to get off a moving freight train and in jump ing struck a switch stand. He receiv ed a painful hurt on bis knee, but there were no bones broken, as was at first thought. Dr. Race didn't think the man injured enough to send bim to the hospital.

There has been some talk about town of the probability that our very unpatriotic Spanish mules will before a great while be replaced by the elec tric variety. A Herald reporter started out to see about it. President Magoffin, when asked if there had been any action taken by the company that would assure us this much needed Improvement, said: "No sir, nothing at all has oeen done as yet." j. M. wnite was next seen, and being asked the same question, said, "I know nothing of any action bavins been taken, and I can't see that there will be anything done before fa1!. An electric line such as is spoken of is something that is needed badly by this city, but 1 am sure that nothing will Jae done during tbe summer." Horace a. Stevens, who Is secretary of the present board of directors, was called on by tbe Herald's man and asked concerning the matter. Me said: The changing of tbe present system of the El Paso street railway bas been discussed for some time, and it is something that will be of great benefit to the town, but at present we do not think that the city is large enough to warrant such a change." Mr. Stevens stated further that nearly all tbe elec trio roads of the state had been written to in regard to the financial basis of each, and it was found that there was only one road that was paying In terest on the money invested. "Of course," said Mr. Stevens, "this change may be made later on, and it will be not only a great bene tit to the city ana tbe citizens, but an investment that business men will want to place their money in." On being asked when he tbought such a line would be put in, Mr. Stevens said: "Really,! can't say, but I hardly think it will be done any time in tbe near future." H. R. Wood was also seen in regard to the probability of an early change, and when asked his views on the sub ject said: "No sir, I see no chance at present for a change of the present sys tem. Nothing bas been done that I know of in regard to the matter and I don't think that it will be possible to do anything until after the war, and possibly not this year." Mr. Wood stated further that he thought it might be done some time early next year, but not this. Tbe base ball team will meet'to nlght at Van Baldnw's place on N. Oregon street.

The Herald s man heard two or three appreciative comments this morning on his rounds in retard to the way the sidewalk ordinance is beinsr eniorcea. one man saia: "it is a pleasure now to be able to walk aloner our principal streets and not have to get out in the middle of tbe street to get past some of tbe merchants' dis plays of goods that have heretofore oc cupied nearly the entire width of our sidewalks." Chief Lock hart informed the reporter that hereafter nothing of any kind would be allowed to remain on the sidewalks, as he had notified all the street bootblacks that they came under the ordinance and would have to move their places of business. All bi cycle stands will have to go too. The Endeavor of the Christian church will serve ice cream and sher bet at the church Tuesday from four to JU p. m. Z saucers for o cents. Pro ceeds go to send a delegate to Dallas. The sidewalk ordinance is belner strictly enforced this morning. Even bootblacks and bicycle racks are being removed. Some people believe they are honest because they refuse to carry off an um brella bearing an engraved plate with the owner's name on it. A Scientific Pilgrim An interesting explorer arrived in El Paao on Saturday evening last in tbe perron of Capt. Newton H. Chitten den. Capt. Chittenden is a graduate of Columbia college of New York, is a member of the bar of tbe supreme courts of California and New York, and gave up bis practice to further the cause of science by researches in tb; fields of archeology and ethnology. To a Herald reporter Capt. Chit tenden, said: "Over thirty-three years ago 1 crossed the Rio Grande at this point. I was serving as first lieutenant and adjutant of the Fourth Wisconsin cav alry. With other troops under Gen eral Weitzel, we were watching Max imilian's troops on the other side of the line. My own sympathies were strong ly in favor of the Liberals, and I de termined to give them all tbe aid I could. I bad saved up several hundred dollars. With this money I purchased ail the guns I could obtain. Lashing them on a powerful horse, I forded the Rio Grande just below Ringold bar racks (the barracks stood on the site of El Paso) and rode for the Mexican headquarters. "Tbe headquarters of the Liberal general, Escoado, was about five miles away. When I arrived there I was immediately surrounded by won dering groups of Mexicans. When tbey were told that I had guns and ammunition for them they cried out with joy, and breaking into a run sev eral men led the way to the headquar ters. "The general accepted the arms and ammunition with profuse expressions of gratitude. He then brought out a coarse sack, which was kept on the floor in a corner of the room, and open ing it, counted out in silver dollars the price I asked, which was just tbe amount of my own actual outlay. ' I put tbe specie in my saddle bag and mounted. At that time the usual route of travel along tbe river was infested by outlaws, so I avoided the beaten track and made a dash back to the river. I recrossed the Rio Grande not far from this point, and until Saturday last I had not been in Texas since that year, 1865. "Nearly all these thirty-three years I have been in the field exploring. I am now on the twenty tbird expedition in tbe cause of scientific research. I have traveled by every mode of trans portation, but I never tried the burro until two years ago. I found that no other animal could so well do what wa; required in my work of exploring tbe ancient ruins of Ari zona. New Mexico, Colorado and. Low er California. Within the last two years I have led my different animals over 1800 tnlUs. Tbe little burro call ed Cinto has been with me since I left the Santa Ana valley of California last November, and 1 have led him 1200 miles. "My route has been through the val leys which contain the most numerous and best preserved remains of tbe an cient civilizations of tbis interesting region. I traveled 250 miles up the Gila, then along the Salt river beyond Florence and the river Verde, through the Casa Grande region, to the San Luis valley. "I followed this valley to the old mission of San Xavier, then through :he valley of the San Pedro and over the Dragoon mountains. This of course is but a small part of the country I have walked over during these two years." Among the papers carried by the cap tain are some very interesting draw ings of the famous picture writings copied by bim from the walls of the rocky canyons of the Colorado river. ' Capt. Chittenden is a very enthu siastic explorer and has seen the whole Pacific coast from Alaska to Southern California. He has written several interesting books concerning his trav els, and stated that he "had not re moved his clothes and slept in a mat tress bed, but one weak altogether in two years, and on the present trip had walked and led his burro over 1200 miles." "On hearing of the declaratiou of war," the captain said, "I immediate ly offered my services to the president for active service in Cuba, and receiv ed a reply of thanks stating that my letter was referred to the secretary of war, but as yet I have not been assign ed." The following is a clipping the captain gavs the reporter showing some of tbe work that has already been accompnsaea by him: "Leading his little burro"Cinto,"all the way from Santa Monica, Cal., out in tbe mountains and aeeerts since September, Capt Chittenden, the ia defatigable and enthusiastic explorer. ethnologist and archaelogial, reached Tucson yesterday, and although wear ied bv four days lorced traveling in or der to reach water, proceeded witbout stopDinc to the rare old mission church of San Xavier. He is now on a histo rical tour of the worli, especially in the interest of ethnological research, and ia carefully examining the most important remains of the recolumbiao people who were so numerous in Arizo na during former acres, with a view of soon published a work thereon. Capt, Chittenden is the author of several pamphlets upon the Pacific coast reg ion, having published one on Alaska fourteen years ago. In 1884 he was specially commissioned by tbe govern ment of .British Columbia to explore the Queen Charlotte islands and the following year under the patronage of tbe Canadian government he published 'From Ocean to Ocean," through the British possessions. Upon these, and many other expeditions he has made tbe most complete and valuable collec tions relating to primitive American life, much of which he has donated to public institutions, presenting to tbe Los Angeles chamber of commerce tbe old carreta which attracts so much attention. He was appointed special commissioner for British Columbia in tbe depart ment of ethnology at the inter-colonial exposition held in London in 1885, and also at the World's Columbian exposi tion, receiving diplomas of honor and Awarded Highest Honors World's Pair.
