The Tnyo Independent tells of a sin -
gular and bloody shooting affair, which
occurred recently between Gordon Ellis
and Pat Shea, at Bennett’s ranch, in
Lincoln county, out‘toward the Co'ora-'
d<-. A short time before the fight, Ellis
sold some borax locations to the Cole
man Borax Company,' receiving $5,000
therefor. On the day before his Inst,
he got into a dispute with a Mexican,
with whom he was gambling. Ifo no
tified the Mexican that he .should then
arid there shoot him, but only through
the leg. as a warning of what would hap
pen if he, Mexican, did not conduit
himself in a proper manner. Thereupon
lie did shoot the Mexican through the
leg, and things went on smoothly un
til the following day. Ellis then had
some difficulty with Shea, with vhum
he was gambling, and told bhea that he J aIH ( tactoriea ftus etfabled us to' inal
meant to shoot him .through the leg, as
he had the Mexican the preceding day,
if Shea did not mend his ways. Shea
dared him to shoot an unarmed man, as
ho then was Ellis blazed away at
Shea’s leg, sending a ball through it
bejow.the knee.. Shea began abusing
Ellis, whereupon and after due notice,
Ellis perforated Shea’s other leg.
During the shooting some msn’pres-
ent hud started to their camp, a short
distance away, to get their Henry riflles,
whether to merely protect their own
legs or with a view to interfering in be
balf of the wounded man can only be
surmised. While returning with their
rifles they met Ellis, and with dtawn
guns compelled him to go back. Com
ing up to where Shea was, the latter,
applying a foul epithet to one of the
men with the rifles, added: “You
want to shoot at an unarmed man, too,
do you V’ At this the man addressed
replied : “If you think I’m a coward,
come out here,” concluding the remark
by throwing his gun down on the
ground, near Shea, and brandishing his
lists. Shea, though with a pistol shot
through each leg, advanced in a threaten
ing manner toward the m n. but got no
further than the rifle, which he imme
diately snatched up. Up to this point
Ellis had rein,lined sitting on his horse,
apparently a .disinterested spectator;
but when he eaw Shea pick up the gun
he instantly slid off his horse, on the
side fullest from Shea. The latter
then cried to Ellis: “Now, if you
wautto shoot at my legs any more, step
out from behind tbut horse and blaze
Ellis held his position behind the
horse. Shea told him that he did not
want to shoot the horse, but that if he
did not come out at once, and “come a
shootin’,” he would drop the horso so
that he could shoot the man. Ellis
saw there was no help for it, and dodg
ing under his horse’s htad came “a
shooting’ ” sure enough, bis first shot
strikiug Shea (already twice wounded)
in the groin and ranging upward. Shea
howoyer, remained standing long
enough to fire two shots at Ellis, the
first with trifling effect, but the second
knocking him in death throes to the
grbund, She* falling the same instant.
Shea was assured that ibere was no
need of another shot, and lay down
satisfied. Ellis almost immediately
breathed Iub last. Shea likewise died
