Seattle WA 3 Nov 1913, Corner Denny Way and 5th Ave...
Note your little article on my unfortunate and brutal assault of last week, and very glad to say that I am still alive, and on the go constantly. It was a premeditated planned robbery, and at the time that one would have any jewelry and money on them, it being between half past seven and eight o'clock pm., and the bogus call coming from Mr. Bagley of the board of public works, a residence with high hedges and narrow walks to residence, to be an ideal spot for a "killing". They had picked a beautiful secluded spot to do the work, and had telephoned to me to come there on a very serious case. I had got about fifteen or twenty feet in the yard through the hedge walk when I was attacked and beaten over the head with a beer bottle, and rendered unconscious. But I must have uttered a yell with the first blow, for Mr. Kinsel, a Second Ave. Jeweller, herd it, and as he was telling me later, he had heard two other men utter the same yell that were being beat up by robbers, and he at once knew that someone was being robbed, and he began yelling for help a block and a half away, and undoubtedly that is what saved men, and why they left me, and did not accomplish a good job; also they beat me over the head until they broke the beer bottle one it -"what a head that must be"- and not having their weapon and hearing the calls for help, they left me without getting anything. The police thought it might be some malice, as I was subpoened that afternoon as an expert witness on a boy who received injuries from an automobile, but I do not think that had anything to do with it. The thugs had undoubtedly watched me and knew the jewelry I would be wearing at that time, but that I would not wear it in the night, so they would decoy me at this time, and it was very dark going through the hedge and easy pickings, and you know the police never want it to be thought it was a killing for robbery, if another excuse can be offered, and if those things did not happen there would be no jobs for them. Am feeling better and expect to be all right soon. With kind regards to all.
Yours very truly, T. D. Sayre, M. D.

Everett, Oct. 24 - President E. A. Marsh, president of the State Federation of Labor, which is making an active campaign for more safety appliances, yesterday issued the following statement: "A man is being killed in the State of Washington every work day in the year; yes, the percentage of deaths by accidents is greater, for during the last year 357 workment were slain. "There were 26,000 workmen injured during the past 24 months in the State of Washington, and we have figures to support the assertion. Nor does our list include every workman who suffered injuries f or my statement merely represents those cases that have been reported. "What we need is better protection for workman in exchange for an injury sustained does not compensate.

They left one pair in a vacate lot down the street, and it was found that one was a No. 9 1/2 while the other was a No. 10.

|crime|| || Chicken Thieves Make a Raid |
Last Monday night chicken thieves made a raid on Mrs. Tyson's flock and took every one of her Thoroughbred White Orphingtons, -- sixteen in number. The thieves were evidently expert at the business, as they cut the throats of the fowls right in the coop, as evidence the pools of blood found the next morning. This is a rather heavy loss to Mrs. Tyson, as the fowls were all of first quality, and were to be used as breeders the coming season. She valued the flock at $50.00.
|wedding|| James, Joseph |
| Big Wedding at Tulalip |
On last Thanksgiving day there was a "Siwash" wedding at Tulalip performed strictly, according with the "Boston man's" ways. Mr. Joseph James, a pupil of the Chemona school and now a prominent logger in the Reservation, married Miss Agnes Jules, a pupil of the Tulalip school, daughter of forman Judge Charlie Jules. After the religious service, at high noon regular Thanksgiving dinner was served for relatives and friends. Wedding trip postponed. "Aias Tyee" Sam Wyakes was representing the old generation. They all heard with keen interest, the bride-groom translating from the P. I. the reception of the almost royal function held the day before at the White House and relished more especially the wedding cake cut by the bride with a military sword. Finally M. C. Jules addressed the party feelingly, to which old Chief Sam answered with tears in his eyes alas! blinded by old age and tepee smoke. May such a bright honeymoon never darken up and never never fade! Both of them, on account of their good training and school accomplishments may be given as a credit to the government Indian Schools.
