of violence they bestowed upon each
Patrolman .Tnmca Gallagher came
along and wh trying to arrest them
when Thorna Hyers. also a negro, living
nt 227 West Slxty-flrst street, threw his
arms about the policeman and pinioned
hint. Peoples Immediately possessed
himself of Gnlliighcr'a revolver and
then the three ran.
Gallagher blew his police whistle and
with the assistance of those who re
sponded arrested Taylor and Myers.
The latter was charged with assaulting
an oltlcer and Taylor was locked up :ii
Gallagher went off duty early In the
eonlng and In plain clothes started out
to II ml Gillie Peoples nml his revolver.
He discovered Peoples on the third floor
of his home and called Patrolmen Len
iion .-i ml McVeigh to his aid before start
ing Into the tenement, which was
already giving signs of unusual life.
The trio went up the stairs only to
find that Peoples had gone out on the
tire escape and by the time they reached
his rooms was In the building next door.
They followed htm nnd although he
didn't try to use the revolver he put up
Mich a fight that It was necessary to
subdue him. Dr. Markhnm of Flow-jr
Hospital attended him afterward.
The prisoner was charged with grand
larceny for having stolen the revolver,
then for carrying a concealed weapon
the weapon being the revolver he had
stolen and finally with disorderly con
duct. This Is said to be the most
complex charge San Juan Hill has
ever known, and It was duly excited for
t-oeral bouts afterward.

Immediately the announcement that
Montenegro had declared war on Tur
key comes confirmation of a report that
the Montenegrin army has attacked
Beranl, In Nov! Bazar, a few miles north
of the Montenegrin frontier.
The town Is said to be entirely sur
rounded by the Montenegrin troops, but
other details are lucking.
Humors of skirmishing between the
Turkish nnd Bulgarian outposts tit
PJumalralu and between the Turks and
Greeks at Dlskata continue.
The declaration of war was made .in
the M-venty-Mrst birthday of King
Nicholas of Montenegro. The King
handed the Turkish envoy his pass

fnlres. presented this note to the Porto:
"I regret that Montenegro has ex
hausted without avail all amicable
means of settling the numerous misun
derstandings and conflicts which have
constantly arisen with the Ottoman Em
pire. "With the authorization of King
Nicholas I. I have the honor to Inform
you that from to-day the Government
of Montenegro cvnses nil relations with
the Ottoman Kmplre. leaving it to the

Tho Ministers of the other Balkan
States nt Constantinople are hourly ex

of peace, which the Powers hnc been
hoping might come through their ef
forts nnd through the reported willing
ness of Turkey to e.Meud certain re
forms to nil sections of the empire, Is
Doubt 1h being e.prcspd In some
quarters, however, regarding the posi
tion which the other Balkan States will
assume. While It Is naturally to bo ex
pected that they will accept this oppor
tunity of bringing on the wnr which so
long lias been impending, still It Is
pointed out that Montenegro has griev

nro not common to the other States and
which are not affected by the question
of Macedonian reforms.
A despatch tn the Vienna AVuc.i
Wiener Taurblatt from (Jltenltza, Hu
manln, to-day reports a massacre of
Turks by Bulgarians at Turturkala,
Bulgaria, on Monday. According to tho
despatch, agitators from Itustchutt In
flamed local Bulgurs and these In the
dead of night attacked the Turkish res
idents of the town, slaying all but a
few who escaped acros the border to
Oltenltz.i. Kyc witnesses are quoted as
saying thnt the police shared In the
slaughter and In the pillage which fol
lowed. (Hi Tiiesla morning, the de
spatch states, the streets of the Turk
ish quarter were lined with piles of
corpses, among them the bodies of
women anil children.
According to tho despatches from Cet
tinje, as soon as King Nicholas I. had
given the Turkish envoy his passport he
himself left thu capital with his son,
Prince Mlrko, for tho headquarters of
the army at Podgorllza. The departure
of the King Mid the Prince was accom
panied by the salutes of cannon and
much ringing of church bells. Queen
Mllcna and her daughters bade the King
nnd her son farewell In public, tho crowd
giving tho royal family nn ovation.
Shortly before tho King and his son
left the capital the ItiiHslau and Aus
trian Ministers fulfilled their duty as
presented to them by their Governments
and urged the King In favor of peace,
warning him of tho dangers his country
was running. The reply of tlin King to
these final overtuies for peace was not
made public. There are many minora
of lighting already going on on the Mon
timgrln frontier and It Is stated that It
wbb SHV'ete and prolonged. Tho reports,
howover, do not specify whether the
Montenegrin army actually was engaged
or whether, as ono report litis It, the
lighting was confined between tho Turks
and tho Mallstorl. (inn report, unau
thentlcoted, nays that the Montenegrin
nrmy has attacked Beraua.
Should the unexpected como about
and Greece, Servla nnd Bulgaria de
cline to Join Montenegro In a declara
tion of war, tho hostilities would not bn
likely to be serious to Turkey except
an she assumed tho offensive nnd In
vaded the mountain Stale, The Mon
tenegrins have n fighting reputation
when they can do their battling In their

numbers to be dangerotiii to n Power of
tho slr.ii of Turkey, unless the little
Stale can gel the help of her neigh

that she will be left to light alone seems
very doubtful, however.

A baseball game which wns splen
didly fought before 35,730 spectator
ushered In the world's series In tho Polo
Grounds amphitheatre yesterday after
noon. Uy a score of 4 to 3, the figure's
speaking eloquently and truly of tho
contest's closeness, the Itcd Sox of Bos
ton came nnd conquered tho Giants of
New York nnd to the Hub goes the first
'It was n game well fought In the
spirit of Its tsportsmuiiHhlp and In Its
actual work on the field. It was cleanly
won, cleanly lost. Tho credit of a
victory fairly und squarely won by the
liostous Is paralleled by n defeat which
reflects credit on tho defeated, for in
losing the Giants enmo out of the gamn
with their portion of praise. Tim acuto
satisfaction of victory wasn't theirs,
but whatever the future of the serio.'i
muy bring forth tho Giants proved
themselves worthy of Boston's steel nnd
by the same token the men of llostoa
were such foemen ns strong men delight
to battle with.
As this opening engagement of thu
premier teams of the National and
Amerlcnn leagues unfolded It didn't
bring baseball that was the very best
In mechanical execution, nlthouch
nicely played. In the field nnd with both
trams handy at doing well with their
opportunities at the bat. It did bring
out u battle which was In doubt from
first to last and evenly nnd stubbornly
Of superiority to nn appreciable ex
tent there was none ono way or tlm
otlier, Individually or collectively. On
bold, concentrated foray with thuir
truncheons and the Kostnnn had won.
One clustering of hits and It was prac
tically nil the batting they did and tha
game was theirs to have nnd to hold.
A grim rally by the Giants la
the ninth Inning had the multitude,
ntingle with excitement nnd, among tha
Giant rooters, hope. There was alarm,
menace and glory for Joseph Wood, a
pitching paragon In hla own act and
the Hed hope, of Boston. In this ninth
Inning rnlly. Klrat gouging him for
three hits und putting ono run over,
two Giants then were hovering on tha
bases with one out. Another hit or tho
slightest break In tho Boston dcTcnca
and ono and perhaps two men would
have dashed for tho plate. Tho daah,
alas, never cume. Summoning all tho
speed he hud and with u tlnal twist of
his supple wrist Wood's smoko ball
came through with such quirks and
quivers that two Giants struck out nnd
left two comrades fettered to the bags.
This, the game's most dramatic mo
ment, cumo as n climax,
Inning to inning tho score fluctuated.
Tho Giants held a lead of two runs to
tho sixth Inning, then It dwindled to
one. In tho next Inning, the period In
which they mustered their hits and
solved Tesrrau for the first nnd only
time, the lied Sox Jumped to the front
by two runs, and In tho ninth that
advnntago was cut tn ono run. Tha
Bostons plnyed a rrsnluto uphill gams
nnd won; tho Giants made a gallant up
hill fight to reestablish themselves. Til
effort fulled, but It bespoke valor and
No one man stood forth preeminent in
the encounter, no particular heto
showed his head. Tho pitchers wero
uppermost; ns in moat world's scriea
games they dominated. Tho Giants out
butted the lied Sox In ono aense. They
made eight hits off Wood, which wero
two more than the Hed Sox mado off
Tesrcati and Crandall, Thoy distribute!
their hits more ficely throughout tha
game than the Itcd Sox and wero not
at all terrified by Wood's speed und
New York's hitting, while numeri
cally better than Boston's, was leas
effective because mom scattered. Tho
great strength, the telling factor In
Wood's pitching, wus not, In keeping tho
Giants frum hitting safely fulrly often,
but ut certain tlmeB lit keeping them
from hitting nt till. Striking out
men was how ho scored and scored
heiiNlly. He took eleven men Into camp
b striking them out, nnd hla greatest
exhibition of skill In this lino waa at u
tlmo when It wna most needed, with two
men ou bases In the ninth inning and
ono out. If ho had It In him to keep
men from hitting tho ball at all that
wns tho time to do It.
Six of tho .eight hits off Wood wero
clean. Klvn of the six hits mado by the
Postons wero clean. That shown how
even tho batting wns. Klvo of tho Hos
ton lilts were off Tcsreau and four of
these In tho decisive seventh Inning.
