LIVELY SHOOTING AFTER IT

Wound One Pollco Turn Up a
Trlfln Too Late.
A can of nltro-glyoerlne used to blow
up a safe on Stateii Island caused all
kinds of alarm on Staten Island, in South
Brooklyn and Coney Island and Bath
ueaou late last night. For an hour a
shower of telephone calls poured Into
Police Headquarters in BrooUlyn, on
Staten Island and in Manhattan from
persons who wanted to know whether
it was an earthquake or a million cans of
powder which had exploded.
Just before 1 o'clock Leo Qulnn.achauf
feur who lives on Elm street, West New
Brighton, had delivered his car Into the
Interboroufh garage on Elm street and
was standing talking to the watchman.
Across the street he suddenly saw a light,
then came an explosion which did not
knock Qulnn off his feet nor did it shatter
the glass in the building behind htm. It
reverberated in his ears with force, and
then rolled on to carry its alarm across
Then the force of the explosion crossed
over to Brooklyn und waked up peoplo
in the houses iu Elmhurst, South Brook
lyn, Ba(h Beach nnd Bay Ridge. Houses
shuddered, windows rnttled nnd a
thousand frightened people rolled out of
bed with remembrances of the Com-
munlpaw disaster in their minds to call
upon tho police for aid.
The police tried to locate the scene of
the promised disaster by trying to bunoh
the calls and then rushing squads of cops
to the centre of the bunch. Half the
cops in Brooklyn were rushing around
in this way half the night
In the meantime Qulnn had telephoned
to William Burnett, secretary of the
Staten Isla nd Supply Company, .which
owns the building in which the explosion
started. Bar net t got to the spot i n time
to see two men jumping from a window
to the ground.
Qulnn and Baniett started after the
men, who ran down toward Rlchmon d
terrace.! At the first corner three other
men were standing. Barnett yelled to
them to stop the front runners, but the
three men scattered.
Barnett and Qulnn kept after their
original quarry. They chased them down
until they were near the Shore road, when
one of those in front stopped a hd "began
firing u revolver. At the same time shots
were heard from beh ind; tho' three who
had scattered were olos ing in on the
Barnett stopped when a bullet went
through his hat; Quinn was dropped with

the sound of the firing and Qulnn was

Marconi Wirtltf DittcteU to Tss Hc.v
LoN'Dort, via Olace Bay. March 22. Sir
Henry Dalziel has now decided fo press
his question in the House of Commons
as to the authenticity of the interview
with Whltelaw Rcid, the American Am
bassador, printed in tho New York Tiintt
last Saturday, in which the American
diplomat was quoted as saying that con
ditions in England Just now were similar
to those in France before tho Revolution.
The question was withdrawn a few days
ago owing to the pressure brought on Sir
Henry by the Government.
The question was again submitted
to-day in an altered form and passed by
the Speaker. As It now appears, it asks
tho Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
"whether his attention lias been dran
to the interview with the American Am-
bassador to Great Britain In the course.1
of which he is reported to have expressed

Wasiiinoton. Maroh 22. Further trust
legislation by Congress Is necessary and
desirable in the opinion of the Senate
Interstate Commerce Committee. This
decision was reached at an executive ses
sion of the committee to-day. after whioh
it was determined to begin immediately
the drafting of a bill that will meet the
objections and strengthen the Sherman
law. The committee will hold dalty
meetings in the future reviewing the
mass of testimony bearing on the ques
tion of trust regulation that haa been
taken in the last several months nnd con
sidering tho provisions of U10 several,
bills that have been introduced in tho
Senate or presented to the committal
After an informal discussion of the sub
ject at to-day's meeting Senator Cummin j
ot Iowa, author of tho most recont bill
for the regulation of the trusts, offered a
resolution declaring that changes in thi
Sherman law aro necessary and desirabl;
His motion prevailed and it was there
upon decided to proceed immodiatel
to the work of framing suitable legislation
Among the bills pending before the con -mittee
are those introduced by Senator
Nowlands of Nevada, Senator Williams
of Mississippi and Senator Cummins and
those submitted by E. II. Gary, chairman
or the Steal Corporation; Judge Farrur of
New Orleans, former preeident of th"j
American Bar Association, and others.
The discussion in tho committee after
the agreement that legislation was neces
sary developed practically unanimous
sentiment for the rejection of the propo
sition for the creation of n commission
with price fixing powers. This proposal
was advanced by Judge Gary of the Steel
Corporation and was chrmploned in the
hearings before the committee by several
other persons of prominence who ap
peared by invitation to offer suggestions
concerning the need of tho modification
of the Sherman law.
Members of the Senate committee
were at sea as to the provisions of the bill
to be framed, but all agreed that it prob
ably will bo a composite measure, em
bracing features from the several bill 4
that have been presented to theoommltte-,
Senator Cummins's bill, which embodiei
many of tho provisions of the measurj
introduced by Senator Newlands, U
believed tn meet with the views of many
Senators, and though it is certain not to
lie accepted iu its present form it may bj
taken as a basis for the measuro finally
reported by the committee.
'Hie Cummins bill provides for the crea
tion of an Interstate trado commission,
into which tho bureau of corporation')
of the Department of Commerce und
Labor shall bo merged and which shall
exercise powers over corporations en
gaged in interstate coramerco similar
to tho powors exercised by tho Interstato
Commerce Commission over questions of
The bill also provides conditions under
which corporations may engage in Inter
state commerce. It prohibits inter
locking directors of corporations, out
laws holding companies, limits tho size
of such corporations and throws addi
tional safeguards and limitations around
Senator Williams's bill not only pre.
scribes conditions under which cor
porations may engage in interstate com
merce, but it also prevents underselling,
prohibits interlocking directors and pro
vides that no State corporation shall
engage in interstate commerce unless
the Stale laws undor which It la char
tered meet certain Federal requirements
whloh aro named by Senator William
in his bill.

Senator Newlands, a member or the
committee said to-night, clisoiitslng the
probable aotion of the committee:
"It is impossible to tell at this time
the exact nature of the bill that the com
mittee will report, having decided tint
changes in the Sherman law are desir
able and necessary. It Is my Judgnwut
that It will be a composite measure em
bracing some of tho things contained
iu each of the bills presented."
