Albany, Or.; May 20.-r-About
7:30 this evening Mrs. Mixfi'sld
fired six shots at her son-in-law,
Otto Hall. Of the six shots fired
by Mra.. Maxfield, only one, the
first, hit Hall. The ballet struck
the top button of Hall's trousers,
glanced and struck a button on his
underclothing, glanced again and
slightly wounded Hall in s the 7 ab
domen. ' . :,'
" About three weeks ago Hall, -who
conducted a second-hand store in
tbis city, eloped with Charlotte, the
17-year-old daughter of Mrs., Max
field. The couple went to Vancou
ver, Wash., and were married. At
the time of the elopement it was
reported that both Mrs. Mixfield
and her daughter were after Hairs'
band, but toe daughter outwitted
her mother and captured Hall. , j
Mrs. Maxfitild sought the aid of,
the police and exerted every enort
to capture the runaway couple, but
failed. :Mrs. Maxfield. swore ven
geance against Hall . and asserted
openly that when she . again met
Hall she: would kill him. Last
night she nearly made good her word.
Hall and his bride returned . to
Albany on last, night's local from
Portland, and were met at the de
pot by a large crowd of friends.
Hall and his wife, accompanied
by a friend, ' started for
the east end of town. -. When . at
Second and Baker streets, they met
Mis. Maxfield, who urged her
daughter to- leave Hall and . come
with her. J .
iThe girl refused, saying she ' had
married Hall and would stay with
him.; ' Mrs. Maxfield then turned
to Hall and asked him if he remem
bered that she had told him if he
married the 'girl she would kill
him. Upon Hall answering in the
affirmative' he drew a revolver
from under her cloak, placed it
within three inches of Hall's abdo
men and fired.
Hall then star ted to run,' and
Mrs. "Maxfield emptied her revolv
er at his fleeing form, but none of
the shots took effect. Hall ran a
short distance and stopped, exhaust
ed from the effect of the shot. Ha
was taken to a surgeon who dressed
his wound. ' 1;'
The wound is very painful, but
not fatal. Hall will be confined to
his bed for some time to come. Mrs.
Maxfield was seized by the friend
accompanying Hall and his wife
and subsequently turned over to
the authorities and placed in jail to
await developments, i -v
7 Hall is about 50 years ' of age, a
widower, . and has 11 , children by
his former wile. , He has been a
leading figure tbis winter in dances
in the east end of town'. His con
duct in eloping with., the . 17-year-old
girl has been the caue of se
vere censure by - people generally.
In his present trouble he finds but
little sympathy ' " "'. "
Mrs. MaxSeld is a hard-working
widow, about 45 years of age, and
until recently has been employed
in the 'woolen mills here. - Halt
claims that L. D. Curtis, a rejected
lover of theA girl," persuaded Mrs.
Maxfield to do the shootiDg and
furnished her the revolver.

loses the third finger, on her left
hand. While playing with several

enough to. keep from breaking and
the weight of the child's ' body, to

band, but it was banging atthe
