Hands of Mexicans.
A1sailunt Arrested by Havana Auth
orities Conspiracy of Mexicans
Revealed Diaz Wanted
lead Or Alive.
HAVANA, Nov. 6. General Felix
Diaz was stabbed by a Mexican at
1U:30 o'clock tonight. He was
wounded twice, probably not fatally.
The attack on Diaz occurred whl'e
he was walking on the Malecon, a
fasfltionable promenade. He was
wounded behind the ear and in the
neck, besides receiving several blows
on the head from a cane. Diaz was
removed to a hospital. His assail
ane was arrested.
HAVANA, Nov. . 7. Physicians
have been on the alert for signs of
poisoning in the wounds (inflicted
upon General Diaz last night, but1
nothing has developed to indicnte
that the knife used was poisoned,
and a speedy recovery is looked for.
Diaz and Cecilo Ocon, who fled with
him from Vera Cruz, with a party of
triends, were chatting in the park
when five men rushed upon them
from behind and Diaz was stabbed in
the neck and through the ear. Sev
eral shots were fired during the at
tack. Three Mexicans were arrested
for the attempted murder, but two
of them escapd. Guerrero Mendez.
one of the prisoners, was shot
through the leg.
General Felix Diaz made his es-l

Road Taxes of 1912 Declared
County Court Denies Granges Peti

of Kcrimeutil Kami in i
Douglas County, 1
Acting upon a recent decision of
the Oregon Supreme Court to the ef
fect that the road elections held In
the year 1912 were illegal, the mem
bers of the county court late this
afternoon prepared an order author
izing, or rather instructing i the,
county treasurer to return all road
taxes, collected on the assessment
for the year 1!)12, upon the presen
tation of the sherff's receipt by the
person paying the tax. - j
Several thousand dollars Were
paid to the sheriff before the toad
elections were declared illegal, and
as a result this sum must be return
ed. Other than hampering road work
of the past year, the procedure of
the supreme court In declaring ilast
year's road levies illegal will rdsult
In considerable unnecessary work at
the hands of the sheriff and treas
urer. . j

Burglars entered the shoe store of
Burden & Graham and the art store
of Allen Eaton last night through

ham's they secured $51 in checks and
$19 in cash, from Eaton's they got
but, $1.50 In cash, having missed the
bank book in their hurried search of
the desk, says the Eugene Guard.
Both of the store buldngs extend
but half way to the alley and the
pocket behind them served as a safe
place for the robbers to ply their
trade. The store of Burden & Gda
ham was entered through a fire win
dow that had not been opened for
eight years. This they pried loose
and then climbed through the
shelves inside.
They got $4 from the cash reglB-

Wild West Shows, Bucking Contest
and MiiiwayN Unprolttiible.
In the current issue the Rural
Spirit says it is by no means alone
in its criticism of turning the fairs
and Btock shows of the Northwest
into so-called "Wild West" buckaroo
exhibitions and in its contention
that even the amusements can be
made of an upll'tlng or educative
character. Webster, the well known
correspondent of the American Sheep
Breeder, In Mb account of the Ohio
State Fair at Columbus, has the fol
lowing to Bay: "There has been a
groat demonstration of everything
that contributes to pleasure and ex
citement from a bird whistle up to
the most spectacular production of
tne pyrotnechntc art. All that hu
man beings can feel and think, hear
and see, was produced and handed
out in large doses to satisfy the crav
ing of a twentieth century people,
gone mad for pleasure and excite
ment. They tell me man cannot live
without a certain quantity of pleas
ure. Perhaps so, but it should be the
pleasure that Inspires and elevates.
The substantial foundation of Ohio's
wealth and influence is her vast ag
ricultural reaouces and her live
stock industry. . These will continue
to build her homes and citizenship,
while the glitter and glamor, the
noise and the deceit of the gambling
midway, will destroy character,"
