Id WAS JUSTIFIED But Preliminary Hearing Throws No Light on. Lyon's Motive In Shooting Gardiner "Thla u one of tho ttraugest cases I ever heard of." said District Attor ney Bishop, yesterday In speaking to the court at the cIobo of tho exam Inlng trial of Cap Welch for the shooting of Claudo Lyons." It la a mysterious case and I am utterly at a loss from tho evidence produced and from what I have been ablo to find to get a AHtlsfactory solution to the mystery. Hero we have a man running Into a saloon . filled with other men and who whips out a re- volvcr and shoots down an unsus pecting and apparently defenseless man who Is supposed to be his frlond Then In turn we have this man shot down by another mun whom the evl dence'goes to show Is the defendant In this trial, but It Is curious clr cumstanco that f a" that roomful of mon who were thcro at tho time of the shooting, wo are unable to find a single one who Is sure that Welch fired tho shot or even the second shot fired." Evidence Show. Welch Justifiable. The conclusion of the district at torney after hearing the evidence in tho examining trial of Cap Welch sums up the case as it Is now and at the same time shows utter lack of a satisfactory nolutlon for tho af fray that has caused the death of one man and the. infliction of a dan gerous wound on another. Instead of waiting till this morning for tho preliminary heirlng, both the state and defense agreed to call the hear ing yesterday afternoon. But tho light which this hearing was peeled to throw on the caso was not , forthcoming. On the evldonce given, which was fairly complete, Cap Welch, wis shown to have been amply justified In shooting Lyons. This tho prosecuting attorney admit ted but from tho fact that the cane In Its entirety Is not jet understood, he urged that Welch be bound over on a small bond to await a full and complete hearing before tho grand Jury. This Justleo of tho Peace Hoi man stated he was obliged to In a murder cane and. the bond was ac cordingly fixed at the low figure of $600. Welch easily secured bond and la at liberty. Wltnessca Examined. For the preliminary hearing yes terday six witnesses appeared for the state. Many others were In tho saloon at the tlmo or knew attend ant circumstances but the six sum moncd presented tho Important facts In the case. Besides these witness es, tho defense produced several whose testimony bore on the char- actor of the defendant and hit abil ity to make bond. Officers C. J. Iluskey and Earnest. Hughes ap peared on the state's call, besides John Mlnat, Ellis Elklns, W. E. Cox, and Fitzgerald. Huglioy time Lyons a Gun. Lyons according to tho witnesses, had been in the saloon with the rest of the crowd and had been drinking some with the others. There had been no apparent trouble between Lyons and anyone else, but a short time before the shooting several of tho men in tho ealoon saw Walter Hughey give Lyons a revolver. Ilughey it seems, had hud a slight k Trust Co. W CH difficulty with Gardiner but the evi dence does not show that It was of a serious nature. A few minutes later, Lyons ran Into "the front room of the saloon from the rear and fter a few words with Gardiner who was bending over opening bottle of beer back of tho bar, leveled his revolver at the de fenseless man and fired. Gardiner fell and Lyons, wheeled waving his smoking gun before the men in tho room, and with an oath ordered them to stand back. The men did "stand back" and to Biich an extent that It seems no one in the crowded room actually saw the second shot which brought Lyons down, mortally wounded, Welch at tho end of tho bar had quickly picked up a revolver kept there for einerg encles and had shot Lyons. Lyons Exonerated Welch. All the evidence goes to show that Welch was not concerned In the en counter, between Lyons and Gardiner any' more than any other bystander and that his action was one purely of protection of himself and others from apparent danger. Lyons felt from the' first that ho was mortally wounded and when Oflcer Earnest Hughes reached the saloon to take tho mon In charge, Lyons called the Officer to him and whlipered as well as he could that "l'vo shot Charley Gardiner and Cap Welch shot me But don't let them hurt Welch be oiuso.he wasn't to blame." This statement is practically tho only ono Lyons made. Lyon Burled in Piiilao. Last night the remains of Claude Lyons were sent on the evening Den ver train to Dallas where they will be cared for and burled by his pa rents. His sister, Mrs. T. E. Stack accompanied them. Lyons' own family Is as much at a loss as Is the public In the matter but tbey will mako further endeavors t3 get an explanation of tho affray. Gardiner contlucs to Improve and tho ehancey rc now decidedly In his favor. Ills injury la extremely se rlous, however, and he cannot be considered out of Immediate danger for several days yet. It behooves our people to lay aside personal differences, self-interests and petty prejudices, when It comes to a question which effects the pub lic wcmI, It requires personal sac rlflces, individual and collective en' ergy, clear heads and persevering efort to build a city, if you are ready to get In on this program, there Is always room for one more; If not, don't take up a good man's place.

Taking advantago of his room mate's absence on Labor Pay, Wal ter Wilson, a bricklayer returned to their room and made preparation for a "flying trip" to Fort Worth or other dlstunt points. When the roommate got back to the house he discovered that a number of valuable articles including the choicest part of hli wardrobe was missing and that Wilson was also out. An in quiry famished information from people in the houie that Wilson had departed In the direction of tho de pot, carrying a grip, and attired as if for a Journey. The anxious room mate then dispatched word to Chief of Police Snider In tho quickest time possible nd Snider caught up with the missing bricklayer on the even ing Denver which he had boarded for his flying trip. When charged with stealing the goods of his fellow, Wilson blandly explained that It was all right, that his roommate was a "good fellow" and that he only bor rowed a few things for the trip. T()e other party to the transac tion, however, took no such kindly view of tho situation und called the act of Wilson by a much harder name. . On examination it was found that Wlluon had on his roommate's best suit, was carrying his grip filled with other belongings, and had bor rowed a pocketful of change which he found among the other man's effects. Under the circumstances, Chief Snider returned as much of the property as could be found and lodged Wilson in Jail to let the grand Jury act on thU caso of borrowing.

The to tal value of farm property Is f 962,- 476,273, and the Jtptaj animal valae of farm products is ,.$239,823,344, which is a good deal more than Kan sas, Missouri and Nebraska. In 1906 the state produced 14, 126. 1S6 bushels of wheat, J3o.S04, 7S2 bushels of corn, 31,822,510 bush els of oats, 69,026 bushels of rye, 4,002,363 bales of cotton, U.000 tons of sugar cane, 8.428,539 bush els of rice, and 112,724 bushels of barley.

New Crops In the Panhandle. From time to time new crops are being tried In t'ae Parhandle and the remarkable thing is not yet has there been a signal failure and near ly always the result of the experi ments have been such as to strength en the faith In the productiveness of the soil here and the adaptlbillty of tho Panhandle to nearly all crops of tho temperato zono. The latest new crop experiments is that of flax by C. W. Griffin of near Washburn. Mr. Griffin, who recently moved from Missouri, says: "I planted about eight acres of flax this year, and late ly when I threshed it I find a yield of something like ten bushels per mere. The tow makes the jflnest kind of hay If the fanner chooses to keep It Instead of selling for fiber. Flax seed sells around )1 to $1.25 per bushel iany time, and finds a ready market, so you see even at ten bushels per acre it Is a money crop. This year Is lnmh dryer than the average and I am convinced that in favorable years the yield would run much higher. I planted the flax In April this year." Pampa Crony. CIVIC LEAGUE .MEETING.
