COTTONWOOD, Idaho, April 15.— An unsuccessful attempt to assassinat« Attorney George Goode was made at 11 o'clock last night by some unknown person, who fired two shots through the window of Mr. Goode's office. The bullets barely missed Goode'» head and are now embedded in tne wall opposite the window. Mr. Goode was sitting in the win dow at the time the shots were fired. He says the shots came from the op posite corner of the street. Much excitement prevails here to day. It is understood Mr. Goode has secured a warrant for the arrest of a man named Harry Blake, whom It 1» stated, made remarks in a saloon after the shooting by which It Is expected an attempt will be made to connect him with the affair. Attacted by Masked Men. The shooting last night Is generally considered a further development n the escapade of two weks ago, when Attorney Goode was seized by a mask ed mob and taken to the suburbs of Cottonwood and told to get out of th« country. t j, at time Mr. Goode was In on* 0 f the Cottonwood business houses and received a call by telephone stat j ng that parties desired to see him In anothr part of the town. As he wai going from one place to the other h« was ge| ZP (j by three masked men. who started for the dark streets. They were soon joined by about ten other masked men. When the suburbs 0 f the town were reached Good was given his freedom and told to take the road and not turn back, To empasize their orders the mem bers of the mob fired several shot» i above Goode's head as he went down j the road, bht despite' the warning. Gonde returned to his hotel that night and has since been about the town at. tending to business matters. Developments Anxiously Awaited. Last week Goode announced his in tention of prosecuting persons whom he believed to have been identified j | "'Mi the movement to run him out of town,' and also the Cottonwood pap;r which he claims published articles detrimental to his character. It has been suggested during th* past few days that Goode had not heard the last of the people who or dered him to leave Cottonwood, and It Is believed the shooting last night was perpretrated by some person who was a member of the mob which or dered him to leave the country.
