of a number of shots In one of the
rooms upon the main guest floor.
'hief of Police Itraxiel who was

who was standing near the restau-
rant had. located the place of shoot-
ing by the powder smoke which was
drifting Irom the w'indow of the
room wherein the shooting occurred.
Me pointed the place out to the
chief who immediately crossed the
street and ran to the room. Here
he found J. C. Washington and Cal
Stewart iu a desperate struggle for
the iKissession of a gun. Stewart
was bleeding from a flesh wound in
one of his legs lloth men were al-
most exhausted when the officer ar-
rived. It see!;' that Washington had come
iu from the Washington ranch in
Murray -ounty on Saturday evening
and registered at the "Whltttngton.

"When Chief of Police Braziel burst
into the room Washington had suc-
ceeded in getting the gun raised and
had fired two more shots both of
which however went wild.
Hoth parties belong to very prom-
inent families. Neither of them cared
to discuss the matter. "Washington

over to Sheriff Buck Garrett. The
amount of his bond will be fixed
some time this i afternoon.
