crts received in Juarez from the state

Of course the -wonderful curative

It must be understood however that
this delightful place offers attractions

and Mrs. Mauldin leave the place. That
was about 11:10 oclock. I did not look
at my watch but I judged it was about
that time. I told them that I would
take them home but they said never
mind that they would go home on the
car. It was at the corner of Kansas
and Mills that I told them goodnight.
At that time I heard an automobile
coming. It sounded just like a car be-
ing driven in a race. It must have
been traveling at a rapid rate of speed.
Mrs. Escontrias said: There's that
brotherinlaw.' The man in the car over-
took Mrs. Escontrias and Mrs. Mauldin.
He said something to them but what
it -was I do not know. The car could
not have been stopped more than an
instant for after speaking to the two
women the man started the car up al-
most immediately and drove it to the
railroad tracks. He then turned the
machine around and came whizzing
back. He was making fast time. I then
walked on down to Myrtle avenue. I
did not hear any shots."
Cannot Understand It.
"We are unable to understand it."
said Miss Cuca Johannsen. a half sis-
ter of Julio and Antonio Escontrias.
Miss Johannsen with her mother. Mrs.
J. I. Johannsen who is also the moth-
er of the two brothers lives at 12S
Leon street. Julio lived with them
and another brother. Anastacio Escon-
trias. who is employed at the Pearson
plant. "When Julio came to his sup-
per Thursday night about 7 oclock"
said Miss Johannsen" he appeared to
he in an unusually happy frame of
mind. I thought that he must have
bad some good fortune befall him
whereby he made a lot of money. Af-
ter he finished his supper he went
right out and took the automobile to
the union station. The car belongs to
Antonio his brother but Julio had it
in the rent service. I saw Antonio
this morning (Friday morning) He
could not understand It. He did not
know -why it happened. I have wired
his brother Felix at Morenci and we
are expecting him to come to El Paso."
At Uie time of the shooting Clarence
Band and a traveling man whose name
was given as Frank Hamilton were
standing nearby. Rand was inter-
viewed by Capt. Greet and also by cor-
.er James J. Murphy who Is holding
the inquest. Rand and Hamilton had
passed Mrs. Escontrias and Mrs. Maul-
din when Julio Escontrias jumped out
of the automobile. Rand saw the man
when he fired the first shot into the
gutter and the second shot into the
air. Rand told ccroner Murphy that
he and his companion then left the
Married Eight Years.
Mrs. Escontriac and her husoand had
been married about eight years. A iy
three years old was their only child.
Fred Delgado city detective whose
home Is near the Escontrias home
stated that the two always seemed to
be the happients of couples. Miss Es-
contrias was the daughter of Mrs.
Laura E. Moran.
In addition to the two brothers liv-
ing here Mrs. Johannsen the surviv-
ing mother. Miss Johannsen surviving
half sister and Felix Escontrias the
surviving brother at Morenci. Ariz
Mrs J C. Thornton living at 416 "West
Overland street is also a surviving
sister of Julio Escontrias.
It is stated that no funeral arrange-
ments -win be made until word Is re-
ceived from the brother at Morenci.
Hereaved ITusband Arretted.
At 115 o'clock Friday afternoon. A.
A. Escontrias. the husband crazed
with grief was arrestee at the home
of his mother. Mrs. J. L. Johannsen.
12S Leon street. He is alleged to have
been flourishing a revolver and in his
delirium threatening to shoot his
mother. Mounted policemen Simpson
and Henderson responded to the tele-
phone call from the Johannsen home
for aid and officer Simpson took a re-
volver away from Escontrias after
which he was taken to the police sta-
tion. The man seems to be beside
himself with grief and does not appear
responsible for his actions.
Mmilar Tragedy Five Years Ago.
According to the police a rooming
house located at the corner of Mills
and Stanton streets was the scene of
a tragedy similar to that of Thursday
night five years ago. when a man
named Manuel Rubio shot and "serious-
ly wounded his American wife and
then committed suicide. The woman
recovered but was rendered totally
blind by the gunshot wound Inflicted
by her husband.
