THe shooting occurred in the coach where Miss Hoffman was seated and in closs proximity to her. Speaking of the affair last night she said:. "The wreck was bad enough, but the fight in the car and the shooting wer terrible. The man rushed excitedlj through the train waving a revolver, and just as he reached'our car he met the conductor, who grappled with him and attempted to wrest the weapon from him. The gun was discharged several times and the conductor sank to the aisle of the car with blood streaming from wounds in his hand and leg. Passejigers and members of the train crew rushed to the conductor's assist ance and overpowered the crazed man, taking his gun from him. He was placed in irons, and when we reached Ellensburg he was removed as was also the conductor. The latter was taken to the hospital, I believe, and the Ital ian back to Tacoma, where he will be examined as to his sanity."

THE EVENING STATESMAN WALLA WALLA, YtASHTNGTOK SAVES CHURCH BURNING TISSUE PAPER STARTS CONFLAGRATION THAT THREATEN EDIFICE Quick Work *n Part of Pastor and Others Puts Out Blaze and Averts Danger. Burning tissue paper on the walls of the auditorium of the United Bretheru church, Howard and Juniper streets, last night for a time threatened the building and caused painful burns on the hands of the pastor, Rev. J. B. Bail, who extinguished the flames. The paper became ignited from the heat of a large kerosene lamp just before the opening of the evening service, and had it not been for the prompt work of Rev. J. B. Ball. Miss Florence Gallagher, organist, and her brother, Eugene Gallagher and J. IX Barnes, the flames would have gained headway and the new buildiner would have been at least partially destroyed. The iamp hung on the wall just back of where the choir members have their places, and below a long festoon of colored tissue paper used for decorative purposes. Heat from the lamp ignited the paper soon after being lighted. In stantly the flames spread along the wall, and though Rev. Ball and Miss Gallagher and her brother Eugene, who were in the room at the time, rusttted to tear the paper down, the flames traveled faster than it was possible for them to act. With the long blazing festoons of paper on the floor the situation was no less dangerous for a time, for the carpet began burning wherever the flames touched. J. D. Barnes, who lives near the church, saw the in terior of the church lighted by the flames and rushed in to help. With his assistance the fire was finally ex tinguished. As water was not to be obtained quickly, it was necessary to "tramp" the flames out. OLIVET CHURCH HAS NEW PASTOR Latest Acquisition to Ministerial Cir cles is Rev.

AWFUL ASSAULT ON WEST MAIN STREET Thoroughfare Is Bearing Up Well Un- der Its Injuries, However —Thre* Badly Injured. Intense exc-tement prevailed this morning: when the report of an awful assault on West Main street was cir culated, and until investigated by a couple of over-z alous newspapermen, the one strange feature of the epi sode was the fact that the police had heard nothing- of it. It was almost a scandal, in that some of the represen tative citizens of the burg were im plicated; but when sifted down to a fine point, it was found that only Jake Kauffman, Bert Grogg and Walter Mc- Calley were guilty, with Secretary Robert H. Johnson, David Morris and Frank Lake as the injured parties. Jake Kauffman, as is well known, is one of the most active members of the local lodge of Elks, even though he is exceptionally well-proportio>»ed, and it i? also well known that he is working to secure control of a big show which is booked for this city, in order to have the performance given under the auspices of the local order. This mere ly by way of explanation. Secretary Johnson, of the fair asso ciation, is also a lodge man, but his tendency runs more to the benefit of the association, and he has secured the Parker Amusement company as an attraction here next week, the show to be distantly connected with the as sociation. This also by way of expla nation. Dave Morris and Frank Lake are In the city this week making arrange ments for the coming of their amuse ment companies. They were this morn ing informed that Kauffman way "knocking" their production, and forthwith went to the coal anj wood office, where they protested against the disparaging remarks. "I've got a better show than you fellows ever thought of having," Jake is said to have returned, and upon the contra diction of that statement, the report to Secretary Johnson was to the ef fect that there was a sound as of breaking glass, and a drop in the price of wood. Which Way Are You Cooking? It is the old way—hard work in a hot kitchen at twice the cost of an easy way in a cool kitchen! Is that the way? rlj Turn the valve. Strike a match. What is the result? That is all —absolutely. In cost your fuel bill —your cook ing expenses is below half. You are only under expense when you are act ually using a gas range. You can cook quicker —easier — better. You have no lugging, carrying, chopping. Your kitchen will always be clean so far as coal smut, ashes, etc. are concerned. You have more time for yourself. You are happier —freer. You feel better physically and Now read the other way, and decide for yourself. BE. Alder NORTHWESTERN GAS & ELECTRIC CO. Phone 34 "Better send an ambulance down af ter those fellows," Gregg and McCalley 'phoned up to Johnson. "One is doubled in the alley and the other has dis appeared entirely." Sitting in his office, the fair asso ciation secretary di<j not know to what lengths the advance men had gone, and, knowing full well of Kauf man's reputation with his "dukes," he took it in dead earnest, and was preparing to summon Gregg and Mo- Calley for witnesses. Half an hour later Kaufman and Johnson met near the city hall. But they didn't mix. Johnson walked around behind Jake, and proceeded to tell him what hi's opinions on the sub ject were, being careful not to take the dangerous position in front. "Well." said Kauffman, "it's on you; there is Morris now. I'll leave it to him; then "We'll have somed baked duck on toast." They did. Temperance Lesson on Screen.
