Hansen, who has been in hiding since
tho stabbing affair, has reappeared in
tho Spring Creek district, where the
murders were committed and accord
ing to reports which were brought to
Payson bj Indians yesterday, he is still
in that locality.
Immediately upon receipt of the in
formation, Sheriir Thompson, who was
iu Payson to investigate the killing of
Jack Lano by Supervisor William Col

back to Payson today.
Whether tho redskin will resist ar

that Sheriff Thompson would probably

QUICK WORK OF FIRE
Fire of Suspicious Origin
Quickly Subdued After .
Fire of unknown origin badly dam
aged an Italian grocery and fruit storo
on Scott street shortly after midnight
this morning and but for tho energetic
work of the flro department, would prob
ably have destroyed other buildings in
tho immediato vicinity.
Tho flro secured a fair headway boforo
an alarm was turned in and tho building
was blazing fiercely when tho depart
ment arrived. A stream of water was
soon playing on tho flames, however
and as tho result, tho building, a frame,
structure, will not bo a total loss. The
stock was badly damaged by water.
Tho firp department was handicapped
in making tho run, as tho construction
of a cement runway in front of tho
building necessitated tho removal of
the firo wagon from tho now building
into tho street, and tho leading of tho
horses out of tho back door. Even
under unfavorable conditions, however,
tho firo boys mado a good run.-
Tho origin of tho flro could not bo
learned by tho department, but tho nn
ture of tho blazo gave rise to much un
favorable comment, because of its ap
parently suspicious appearance.

WASIIINTON, D. C, February 3.
Senator Elkins made a bitter complaint
in tho senate today oncoming his
treatment in connection with tho reso
lution providing for an investigation
of the high cost of food. Ho charged
Aldrich with a desire to shield tho tariff
law and trusts in the inquiry and in
timated that hereafter he might bo an

Taking tho Uoor Elkins complained
that tho financo cpmmittco reported tho
Lodge resolution nfter a day's consid

been held up by tho contingent commit
teo for a montn. Elkins contended that
many important features had been
omitted trom tho Lodge resolution and
abserted that the latter had been so
framed as to avoid au iuquidy into the
ctfect of tho tariff on food prices.
," Why do you want to dodgo tho tar

myself, but I'm not afraid to face the

When Lodge read his resolution

West Virginia senator was still unsat

tracking the question," while his own
measure had been so manipulated as
to cause it to sleep tho olcep of death.
At this juncture Bailey suggested to
Elkins that if ho desired to get action
by tho financo committee ho sheuld get
on the committee.
"I suppose so,"' responded Elkins.
"1 nevor have gotten anythong out of
that committee execcpt in consideration
o tho tariff, when 1 got a few drops

everything else they suggested."

request that it bo referred to tho finance

Si FERS LOST
PHOENIX, February 3. The loss by

Phoenix railway this afternoon, together
with eight cars, a carload of cement,
5,500 ties for new construction, the
armature room and machine shop, is es
timated by General Manager Mitchell at
$35,000. Only two of the street cars
were insured. The flro was caused by
an explosion of the gasoline forge in
the armature room.
The plant was located outside of the
city limits. The lire department was
handicapped uy the lack of sufficient
hose to reach from the nearest large
plug, and the plant is fed by pipes too
small to supply tho capacity of tho fire
engine on the ground. The incident will
delay new construction in the city and

somewhat crippling the city service un

LANE DRUNK AND
ON WILD RAMPAGE
Slayer Well Known as Maa
With Reputation for
Supervisor W. C. Colcord was com-'
pletely exonerated for the killing of
Jack Lane, as the result of an investi
gation of the affair by a coroner's jury.
The jury made a tnorough -investigation
of the affair, taking into consider
ation all of the facts surrounding the
killing. All of the evidence pointed
to the fact that Colcord had acted in
self defense, after having first been
fired upon and as the result, a verdict of
justifiable homicide was returned by
the coroner's jury.
As tho result of this action it is
hardly likely that the matter will be
brought into the courts. The unani-i
mous verdict of the coroner's jury is,
in tho opinion of the public, sufficient
evidenco to show that Supervisor Col
cord was entirely justified in taking,
the life of Lane.
fThe body of the dead man has been
buried and the shooting affair, so far
as the people of Payson are concerned,
is a closed incident.
Lano was shot and instantly killed
last Sunday afternoon after he had cre
ated a disturbance on the streets of
Payson and had fired his revolver pro
miscuously half a dozen times.
He rode into Payson on a horse, some
what under the influence of liquor. Is'
entering thejown, he nearly ran down
a number of children who were playing
in the street. Stopping at a saloon, ho
secured several more drinks and, re
mounting his horse, ho raced through
the same gathering of children, again
nearly injuring some of the youngsters.
When tho children were asked, by
Mrs. Stevens, to come into the house,
Lane jeered at her and began firing a
revolver. He was warned to cease the
disturhjinco but look no heed of the
Supervisor Colcord heard the distur
bance and approached Lane, asking him
to cease firing. With an oath, Lane
fired at Colcord from his drawn revol
ver. The shot went wild and to protect
his own life and the lives of others,
Colcord drew his own revolver, a Leu
gcr, and fired four shots in rapid suc
cession. Two bullets took effect, one
through the heart and the other through
tho head, causing almost instant death.
Colcord has the reputation of being
one of the most tractable men in tho
entire Payson district and it was gener
ally believed, even before the details
of tho shooting wero known, that he
shot only with great provocation.
District Attorney Walter Shufe and
Sheriff Henry Thompson were at tho in
quest, at which Colcord was exonerated,
and they will return to Globe within a
