Progressive Candidate Shot in Left Breast at
I Milwaukee Monday by a Crazed An-
i archist Wound Not Fatal
f Milwaukee, Oct. 14th. Colonel
Roosevelf was shot and slightly
wounded tonight, as he was leav
ing the Gilpatrick hotel for the
Coliseum to make a speech. The
nvound was superficial and the
Colonel went on and began his
'speech after he had seen the
would-be assassin arrested and
taken to the police station.
Henry F. Cochens seized the
assassin and held him until a po-
Uiceman came up. A mob surged
j around the man who apparently
was a radical on the subject of
Roosevelt's running for another
term. The man, who is of small
stature, admitted firing the shot
and said "any man looking for a
'third term ought to be shot."
In notes found in his pockets
. when searched at the police sta
tion were statements that he had
been visited in a dream by the
spirit of McKinley who had said,
indicating Roosevelt: "this is my
murderer, avenge my death."
. Roosevelt was taken to the emer
gency hospital.
The corner stone of the new
Episcopal church was laid Sun

nations. A tin box containing a
prayer book, hymnal, new testa
ment, copy of The Coconino Sun,
dated Oct. 11, 1912, a history of
the church of Epephany, two an
, nual addresses of Bishop Atwood,
was sealed and laid away lor fu
ture generations to find.

De Luxe Train in December
The Santa Fe DeLuxe train will
: go into service next December
, and continue until next March, un
less business conditions require

ness day between Chicago and

Has Lot of Good Ore
W. C. Bayless, who retutned
home Saturday, brought down
from the Caledonia vein a sack of
ore which he had taked from the
bottom of a 75-foot shaft, the
sample representing a pay-streak
4 feet wide and resting against the
hanging wall of the vein. A pre
vious mjll sample taken from the
same point and .sent to. the El
Paso smelter, by Mr. Bayless,
gave an average return of $30 per
( ton in silver and copper. The
100-pound sample brought down
Saturday looks richer than did
the former sample and will
certainly run higher in both of the
metals named. It shows specks
of copper silver glance. The
Caledonia claim is one of a group
of 12 claims owned by the Mon
tezuma gold Mining company. As
the property is situated only, three
miles from the Arizona Eastern
railroad, $30 ore can be mined and
shipped by the. company at a
The man who did the shooting
was identified as John Schrank
whose last place of residence was
New York City. He is an un
dersized German, undoubtedly in
sane. Schrank was in front of
the crowd and pushed close to
Roosevelt and fired point blank
at his breast at close range. Co
hens, a former football player
with the Roosevelt party, sprang
from the automobile, crushed
Schrank to the pavement and dis
armed him. An attempt was
made to kill Schrank but officers
succeeded in taking him to jail.
A thick roll of manuscript in
Roosevelt's pocket is all that
saved him from instant death
from the bullet.
Roosevelt was taken to Chicago
and it was decided then not to
probe for the bullet, which X-rays
show is lodged next, to his lung.
His condition is serious, but not
thought dangerous.

"The Rosary"
Gaskill & MacVitty's new play,
"The Rosary," which has had a
successful three months' engage
ment in Chicago, a two months'
engagement in New York and a
two months' engagement at the
Globe Theatre in Boston, comes
to Majestic Theatre Thursday
November 7th. The discrimin
ating public will then be given an
opportunity to see pictured Lefore
them a decided answer to the
growing unrest and irreligion of
our times. Not that "The Rosary"
is a decision merely; it is more.
It is a faithful picture of the
misery and unhappinesss that
comes upon a man who lacks
faith in the supreme good and its
inevitable triumphs in our world.
A typical American family is taken
as a lair example ot everyday
conditions that obtain throughout
the United States. The husband,
a man' immersed in business, the
exacting business of Wall Street
and the Stock Exchange.
Little by little he has fallen
away from the faith of his fathers,
that faith, that brought our Re
public into being. He has re
placed it by an agnostic attitude
all too prevalent in our day and
time. The wife believes, her con
fidence in all-wise, all-prevading
good has not been shaken; and so
when storm and stress come, the
man with no anchor is swept away
by the storm of agony; the woman
remains steadfast, moored by her
faith to outride the tempest.
Through all the heartbreak and
tears, through all the agony and
anguish, clear and serene moves
the wonderful figure of a modern
Catholic priests whose life has
been dedicated to God and the
service of his fellow men. It is
his clear spiritual vision that sees
through the web that has been
woven about the two people whom
he loves and it is his faith and
God-given power that sets them
It is a wonderful preachment of
faith's mighty power, of the saving
grace of the good that lies all
about us.
ine tremendous story, power
ful in its simplicity.- is interwoven
with the higher threads of sane
humor, of the sort that one loves
to take away from the theatre and
laugh over in idle moments.
Handed Something to Tom
Thomas Devine,he of the genial
smile, was the recipient this week
of a loving cup, alleged to have
been presented by admirers of
Flagstaff, although Dad Parsons
a"nd others of the railroad boys are
said to have been the real pur
chasers of the present. Kingman
Jack Smith, one of the oldest
residents in Flagstaff, has a valu
able collection ot old pictures
showing the early struggles of the
now prosperous city of Flagstaff.
Among them is a first street scene
of Old Town taken before the ad
vent of the railroad, another show
ing the first old dinky sawmill and
tramway on the site of the present
A. L. & T. mill, then known as
the Ay res sawmill.
There is a good picture of the
Flagstaff Hotel, then owned by J.
B. Smith, a couple scenes on Oak
Creek, with a splendid showing of
trout in camp. Wash Henry be
ing in the picture accounts for
many of the trout, since he held
the championship in the piscator
ial line during the early years.

It is only regretted that more such

ing the great contrast between the
early days in Flagstaff and our
present day Flagstaff.
Senator Lorenzo Hubbell, chair
man of the republican state cen
tral committee, was in Flagstaff
Monday. Senator Hubbell has
been pretty well over the state
and is highly pleased with the
general trend of the voters toward
the Taft standard. "The busi
ness interests of our people in
this year of our great prosperity
seems to be the paramount ques
tion and the question that most
interests the people. Why should
there be a change when business
was never better? What neces
sity is there for trying new exper
iments, new things and a new ad
ministration, when every man is
doing his utmost to take care ot
the business that is brought to
him? A change could only be for
the worse and the sensible, think
men are going to vote along that
line." .

Funeral of Mr. Athel 0; Jones
Mr. Athel O. Jones, father of
Mrs. Wm. M. Rudd, died at
Phoenix last Sunday and was
brought here yesterday for burial.
The funeral services were held "at
the Presbyterian church at 3
o'clock p. m. The funeral was
conducted by the Masonic order
of which he was a member.
Mr. Jones was prominent in'
business affairs in Ohio and later
moved to St. Louis. Owing to
ill health he has spent the last
year or more in Arizona. Mrs.
Rudd was with her father at the
time of his death.
After weeks of earnest effort,
the Corporation Commission has
secured a reduced rate on coal
irom Gallup, N. M., to intermej
diate points between that town
and Phoenix.
The Maricopa County Commer
cial Club attacked the rates be
tween Gallup and Mesa about
four years ago and in the decision
rendered therein, the Interstate
Commerce Commission prescribed
$2. 60 per ton to be the maximum
rate between Gallup and Tempo
and Mesa and expected the de
fendant companies to adjust the
intermediate rates on the basis of
rates prescribed. Notwithstanding
this decision, the carriers con
tinued to collect what the Corpo
ration Commission termed to be
an unreasonable rate and the mat
ter was taken up with the A. T.
& S. F. in particular with refer
ence to an adjustment.
For instance, although the
share of the Arizona Eastern Rail
road company of the $3.60 rate is
55 cents, yet the Santa Fe
charges Phoenix the full rate.
Flagstaff pays the same as
Tempe and Phoenix, Prescott
likewise, and this state of affairs
persuaded the commission that
the adjustment was not in line
with that recommended by the
Interstate Commerce Commission.
As a result ot the conference
between the A. T. & S. F., the
rates in northern Arizona will be
reduced, but the Corporation
Commission contends that the
reduction is not sufficient and has
filed a complaint with the Inter
state Commerce Commission,
praying for what is termed a
reasuiuiuie icuuuuuu.
The new rate will be operative
approximately thirty days from
date, as that allotment of time is
necessary to provide for the filing
of the same under the federal law.
Below is a statement of the
old rate, the proposed rate to be
installed, and the rate contended
for by the Commission and re
garding which complaint has been
filed: .
Rate pro. by
Cor. Com.
per ton
Such reduction as will soon
effective has been occasioned
the good work of the Corporation
Commission but that body an
nounces that the rates proposed
by it are more reasonable and
that the matter will be fought out
at the earliest possible date.

Hugh Hampsey. Manager
Senator A. A. Worsley of Tuc
son and Speaker Sam Bradner
held a meeting in Flagstaff last
Friday evening at the court house",
in which the proposed laws and
constitutional amendments were
discussed to an attentive audience.
Senator Worsley spoke especially
on the tax amendments to the
constitution, and presented argu
ments in favor of the amendment
that will permit the assessment
and levying of taxes and equali
zation of the same as required by
law. The constitution as now
written was weak on this point
and left open wide leeway for le
gal dispute.
Speaker Bradner spoke mainly
in favor of the five laws affecting
railroads, which the railroads are
seeking to have defeated, claim
ing they are detrimental to the in
terests of the people in the de
velopment of the new state.
Speaker Bradner is an old-time
railroad man and spoke not only
from the standpoint of a legisla
tor but of one who had seen active
Little interest has been mani
fest so far in the amendments and
few people have seen or taken
the pains to read the proposed
laws. It is probable that they
will receive little or no attention
from the voters this fall.
Normal Lecture Course
Flagstaff people are taking
kindly to the idea of a lecture
course for the town this winter.
From all sides we hear expres
sions of pleasure and satisfaction.
"Just the thing," one says. "Of
course I'm going," says another;
"the talent looks fine and I shall
not miss a number." "Those
Waterman people look all right
to me," says a third. "All right!
You bet they are, and that Stroll
ers quartette is great, I have
heard them," returns another. So
we hear people talking about our
talent. Everything points to a
successfuj season for first Normal
School lecture course. Tickets
are now in the hands of students
who are canvassing the town. It
is the aim of the management to
have every home visited, but if
any person is missed, he may se
cure tickets by telephoning to the
Normal. Now is the time to buy.
The first number, the Waterman
Concert Company, is not far dis
tant, the date being set for No
vember o. Ojher dates are: The
Geo. D. Alden lecture, Dec. 7;
the Strollers quartette, January
q; the unrivalled impersonator,
Ralph Bingham, April .14. Sea
son tickets are to be sold for the
relatively low price of two dollars
and fifty cents. This admits the
bearer to the four numbers with
out extra charge for reserved
seats. A section of the best
seats in the hall, corresponding
in number to the number of two
dollar and fifty cent season tickets
sold, will be reserved at the hall
at each lecture, so that all season
ticket holders are assured of good
seats. A charge of -one dollar
will be made for single admission.
A special rate of one dollar is
made on tickets sold to any school
child in the city. These one dol
lar tickets are not transferable.

Senator A. A. Woosley, who,
addressed the people Friday
evening on the proposed consti
tutionial amendments, visited the
Northern Arizona Normal during
the day and was taken all over the
institution by .Dr. "Blorhe. He
was greatly surprised and pleased
with the state instutition of learn
ing and warmly praised its mana
gement, deploring the fact that
there were insufficient accom
modations for the students. He
made the students a splendid
short talk and was astonished to
learn the wide range of country
from which pupils were enrolled.
He went away an "ardent booster

Da Silva Council, Knights of

celebrated "Columbus Day," on
Saturday evening at the Majestic
theatre with a splendid program
of music and patriotic addresses
by Hon. R. E. Morrison of Pres
cott and Hon. George Purdy Bul
lard, attorney general.
The program was opened by
the orchestra with "America"
and was followed by the Normal
training school children with "Co
lumbia" and Flag song.
Attorney General Bullard's ad
dress was a master piece in which
he reviewed the history of Colum
bus, showing the persistence and
tenacity of purpose of the great
navigator, the indomnitable spirit
of the man who would do things
in spite of the many obstacles
placed in his way.
After the "Knights of Co
lumbus March" by the orchestra,
Hon. Robert E. Morrison took up
the earlier history preceeding the
