Kingston, N. T., Jun* 25.— Crazed -with fear
and exhausted from their lons flight without
food or rest, the two remaining Italian bandits,
confronted by two of their pursuer* armed with
mvo'.vers. weakly threw up their hands and sur

Thu«. after sixty hours of pursuit by numerous
oT.lt of men and boys armed with every con
esiv&ble weapon, from shotgun and revolver to
fctjraka and pitchfork, the most exciting man
hurt Ulster County has ever known ended in a
truly wild West fashion. Not even the blood

for the local penitentiary supplied three, which

When the news reached this city that the
bandits had been captured great crowds began
to gather, and when at last the prisoners were
brought in. handcuffed and bound In great coil*
of rope, for the captors took no chances, hun

protection, fearing mob violence.

prisoners had refused to talk. But there Vin

and eobbingly begged to be sent back to Italy.

had been planned by him to get enough money
to return to his native country and win '&s
Sicilian bride. But this romantic explanation

Among the pursuers was Charles K. Ford, a

THE BATTLESHIP PERESVIET.
HEMMED IN PORT ARTHUR.
TOGO'S DEFEAT OF FLEET.
Destroyers Sink Battleship — Oku
Advancing on Kai-l*ing.
Six Russian battleships, five cruisers and
fourteen destroyers, apparently planning n
dash southward, were attacked on Thursday
night, as they lay under the shelter of Port
Arthur's grins, by a fleet of Japanese destroy
ers. One battleship of the Peresviet type was
sunk, the Sevastopol was disabled and n
cruiser of the Diana type was badly damaged.
The Japanese losses wen- few.
There were rumors in New-C hwang that
the Russians had lost sixteen thousand men in
a battle near Sin- Yen on Thursday. Genera]
Sakharoff reported a sharp skirmish on the
Tashi-Chiao road on that day, but there was
nothing to show that a general engagement
had taken place.
General Oku's army continued the march
on Kai-Ping, travelling slowly and keeping
in order of battle. Genera] Kuroki's position
is practically unchanged.
Heavy firing in the direction of Port
Arthur was heard it Che-Foo, and the active
work of reducing the fortresa his ipparently
begun. The fleet's attempt to escape lends
credence to the report that the Japanese siege
guns are in effective operation.
Gallant Dash of Destroyers Among
Toklo, June 25.— Admiral Toko reports that
on Thursday la-Jt, June 23, his patrol boats dis

mediately advanced his entire fleet, except those
engaged In tpef.ial duty.
The admiral then discovered that the Husslan
fleet, which consisted of clx battleships, live
cruisers and fourteen destroyer*, evidently
i'lanned a dash southward by sundown.
The Russians stopped outside th»> entrance to
the harbor, and after nightfall a tk-et of Japa
nese torpedo boat destroyers resolutely attacked
the Russian ships, succeeded In torpedoing and
sinking: a battleship of the Peresviet type, and
disabled the battleship Sevastopol.

Indianapolis, Juno 2& — The homo coming of
Senator Fairbanks to-night was made tha occa
sion for a rare exhibition of enthusiasm. Thou
sands of men, women and children, braving
threatening weather, assembled to greet him
and cheered lustily when he appeared and at
every utterance of himself and ths speakers who
formally welcomed him and congratulated him
on his new honors.
For a few moments a shudder ran through the
crowd, and thon» were many ejaculations of fear,
for it was thought that the Senator was In dan
ger. The driver of the carriage In which the
Senator was riding stopped In front of the house
after the crowd had been forced back, but mis
took the place and essayed to drive further
north. Th» crowd had pressed around the car
riage and the Senator was standing, hat In hand,
bowing aa the people applauded him. The
horses became excited and began to plunge and
rear, and Mr. Fairbanks was thrown violently to
his seat. A^'ain and again the frightened ant
n.als reared and plunged forward, Jerking the
carriage violently. At first the crowd shrank
back, but as it was realized that the occupants
of the carriage were In danger several men
grabbed the bridles <>r the horses and held th«m
until the Senator. Secretary Payne and Chair
man Cortelyou alighted.
Tin- reception to Mr. Fairbanks along: the
streets and at hl3 house was generous In the ex
treme. It.? reached the Union Station at 7:30
o'clock, and was met by the Marlon Club In uni
form, each member carrying a torch or Mag. and
members of the commercial bodies of the city.
He was escorted, after a short season of con
gratulation, to a carriage, and the Marlon Club,
preceded by a band, began the march to tho
Senator's house, at Sixteenth and Meridian sts.
1v.,. Ie lined the way ml cheered lustily as the
parade moved along the streets, while several
hundred vehicles fell In behind and formed a
continuous lino for several squares.
After leaving the carriage at his house the
Senator passed to the porch on the south side,
and was there greeted by members of com
mittees which had preceded him. As he as
cended the steps tho air resounded with ap
plause, and he turned and made his acknowledg
ments with hows and smiles. Mayor Holtzman.
John W. Kern and John L.. Griffiths then made
brief addresses of welcome, and the Senator re
Though the Marlon Club, a political organiza
tion had charge of the reception, it ivas a non

referen.li to politics by any of the speakers.
Many Democrats were present, and for the time
nothing waa remembered except the fact that
Mr. Fairbanks had received a high honor at the
hands of one of the great parties of the country.

expressed a desire to meet personally as many
as possible of those present, and shake hands
with them. For an hour following the speeches
a line marched past and shook hands with Sen

Washington. June 25. "Gorman and Towr.e."
This was the order quietly passed to the faith
ful on Mr. Gorman's return from New-York,
where ha wu so lons In conference with the
leaders of the opposition to Judge Parker's nom
ination, and It Is to have this ticket name* (hat
tna anti-Parker coalition Is working so tirelessly
The Gorman-Guffey-Hearst-Tammany combi
nation wai formed primarily to prevent the nom
ination of Judge Parker, and secondly to unite
on a ticket -which would be acceptable In every
respect to the leaders of the movement. It hae
been found expedient to modify the original plan
in one Important particular. As a result of tha
numerous and protracted conferences between
these past masters of political cunning it was
decided to select a ticket on which all opponents
to Hill and his nominee could and would agree,
and at the proper time awing to Gorman a I tha
votes controlled by the combination.
The strength of the coalition is recognized by
the Parker boomers as formidable. aggreasl\t
and dangerous. Senator Gorman already owns
the delegations from Maryland and West Vir
ginia, besides controlling a majority of the del
egates In several v States, and
Colonel Guffey. with the sixty-eight votes of
Pennsylvania, stands ready to deliver them to
the Marylander whenever they may be needed.
Ex-Senator Smith, of New-Jersey, is also an
active factor in the opposition, and will en
deavor at St. Louis to see that New-Jersey does
not stay out of the Gorman column long. The
conviction Is steadily gaining ground that, as
predloted In these dispatches of June 9. th<?
Hearst delegates will at the proper tin* be
swung to the Maryland Senator, plactrsr ap
proximately three hundred votes to his credit us
the nucleus of a movement, which, it is asserted:
will eventually nominate him.
BRYAN SIPPORT ASSTRFD.
In addition to this, the 00-oper atcm of Ctarlefl
A. Town* brings to the coalition the* siolld I
strength of the "West not already supporting
Hearst. He la the representative of th
ticket, with Its radical following. He will a\<>>
have the active sympathy and passive suppot"
of Tammany, with which organization he is now
affiliated for mutual benefit and protection.
Tammany, of course, is bound by the unit rule,
and its votes may of necessity be recorded for
Parker at first, but this will not prevent indi
vidual Tammanyltes to the number of several
hundred from performing heroic missionary
work among other State delegations in direct
antagonism to Parker and in tha Interest of
Gorman and Towne Indirectly. They can and
will insist that Parker cannot possibly carry
New-York against Roosevelt, while the Mary
land Senator and the transplanted Minnesota
silverlte would, they will declare, sweep tho
State into tha Democratic fold.
That Bryan will have a strong following at
St. Louis is admitted, and It is equally weli
known that he will use It as relentlessly against
Parker as he would against Cleveland. Hl*
latest public denunciation of Parker is accept
ed as indisputable proof of his relentless atti
tude. For this reason, and because of Towue's
activity, the coalition relies on corralling HM
full Bryan strength from the very start through
the influence of its leaders.
CONFIDENT OF BEATING PARKER.
With these various elements presenting: a.
united and determined front against the Hill
candidates. leaders of the movement confldently
assert that they can defeat him and nominate
their own ticket. They denounce as absurd and
without foundation the statement that Parker
will have the solid South. They declare that
Parker's greatest strength and lasting weakness
will be shown on the first ballot, and that he
will fan far short of the two-thirds necessary to
nominate. The total number of delegates to the
convention will be 904, and 6G3 votes must be
secured to nominate the candidate. "With 832
votes the combination can defeat the nomination
of Parker, and thes<? 332 votes are declared to
be In hand. No fear Is entertained that the
second ballot will indicate a gain for the New-
Yorker, and from that time on they look .for
steady desertions from the ranks of the State*
that have apparently Instructed for Parker, but
were forced into Instructing for him chiefly be
cause they feared Hearst. The coalition declares
emphatically that no such half-hearted, panicky
instructions will long continue to bind the dele
gates in ■ number of States, particularly when
they find Judge Parker's chances waning.
Democratic leaders who oppose Parker point
to the Republican State Convention of Illinois
as probably paralleling the coming National
Convention of their party in respect to Governor
Tatcafi candidacy and his subsequent defeat for
renomlnatlon. Yates had a united and loyal
support, but It was not strong enough, to Insure
hi? sue, ess. and his delegates were compelled
to bow to an opposition as determined and. as it
proved, more powerful than they. At Springfield
M was practically Yate.3 against the field, ami
at St. Louis, the field has been united against
Parker and. in this big national handicap they
predict, that shrewd political jockeying: will in
evitably land trie outsider a winner as ac.ilnr-t
PREPARING TO DESERT HEARST.
That the alliance between Hearst and the Gor
man-Ouffey-Tammany combination eliminate
Mr. Hearst from serious consideration as a can
didate for first place is rapidly becoming known,
and those who mounted the Parker band wagon
to prevent the Democratic nomination from go
