A 3 'clock in the afternoon, just be
fore the close of the bank, four rough
characters rode into the town and
stopped before the First National bank.
Three men went into the bank, in which
only Cashier Middaugh was at the time,
and without parlev demanded all the
cash in the big safe.
Cashier Shoots at Leader.
Instead of complying, Middaugh
(Crabbed a revolver and fired one shot
at the leader. Before a second bullet
could follow, Middaugh fell dead, with
a bullet thru his brain.
The firing attracted the attention of a
party of hunters, who at that moment
rode up on the opposite side, and rushed
around the corner with their guns and
opened fire on the outlaws. The rob
bers, who by this time had retreated to
their horses, returned the fire and fled.
Deputy Sheriff Jeff Chapman led the
chase. It is expected the robbers will
Barely be taken and it is feared that an
attempt may be made to lynch them. A
large reward has already been offered by
citizens of Cody for their capture or
death. Middaugh was a thirty-second

St. Petersburg, Nov. 2.The Asso

English agreement to submit the North
sea incident to a commission assures an
amicable settlement without a sequel.
The understanding is complete.
In the heat of the excitement fol
lowing the incident many false impres

Britain disclaimed any intention of try

which could only be interpreted as a
hostile act. It was never intimated to
Russia that Vice Admiral Rojestven
sky's recall would be demanded, and
Great Britain never asked Russia to

The British government fully realized
that officers of the Russian squadron
may have acted with excess of zeal.
The whole affair was a deplorable
mistake, but as- a result of the inquiry
which will establish the facts, each gov

action without demands from either
side and no pledges have been request
ed or given by either country.

Almost a Riot as Result of Pass
ing of Franchise
New York Sun Special Service.
Toledo, Ohio, Nov. 2.The turbulent
scenes that followed the passage by the
city council Monday nignt of an objec
tionable ordinance 'extending the fran- i
chise of a local street railway company
for twenty-five years, has resulted in
positive expressions of approval of the
course adopted by the citizens in re
sentment of the act of the councilmen.
Thruout the day, the thirteen council
men who voted in favor of the objec
tionable ordinance, were severely criti
cized and the opinion was expressed
that if they did not rescind the ordi
nance under public pressure serious
trouble would ensue.
A immense crowd surrounded the
council chamber when the objectionable
ordinance was passed by a vote of 13 to
3. There were cries of "thief," "rob-
ber," "boodler," etc. Bottles of vile
smelling drugs were emptied upon the
floor, and when it was evident that the
councilmen were to be attacked, a squad
of forty police was sent for.
The demonstration alarmed the of
fending councilmen, who dared not
leave the chamber without police pro
tection. One or two took the risk, and
th ey were followed, threatened, and
even stoned by the infuriated crowd. A
midnight the chamber was cleared and
the councilmen were escorted to their
homes by the police.
I is reported that the wives of sev
eral of the councilmen were called up
and notified that their husbands would
be assaulted or assassinated if they
dared vote for the franchise ordinance.
The trouble was on account of a bit
ter fight over the extension of the fran
chise of the Toledo Railways & Light
company, which operates all the street
car lines of the city, and which is a
portion of the Everett-Moore syndi
cate's holdings. None of the fran
chises expire for several years, but the
company has a large amount of bonds
to sell, and the election of the last city
council was accomplished largely with
this subject as an issue.
A ordinance was drawn by which
universal transfers and six tickets for
a quarter were made the chief points
at issue. A once an independent par
sprang into existence and grew to
large proportions. Eleven members of
the council were accused of having
been bought outright to vote for the
franchise extension. Two wavered and
three opposed it. It required thirteen
votes to pass the ordinance over Mayor
Finch's veto, which was assured.
New Ordinance Sprung.
Then a new ordinance was drafted
in which the interurban lines entering
the city were not granted good priv
ileges, they thought, but seven tickets
for a quarter was the slogan. At the
end of ten years the fare was to be at
the rate of eight tickets for a quarter.

that it would not accept such an or
