Passed Her Sister
as Latter Was Slain
"Woman Hurried to Escape Sight of
Murder on Street, Not Knowing
Relative "Was Victim.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 27. Manuel
Roth, a teacher of French, shot and
killed Mrs. Angle Parslow today and
then sent a bullet through his own
brain. Both died almost Instantly. As
the shots were fired a sister of Mrs.
Parslow passed and hurried on. to
escape the sight, not knowing that her
sister was being murdered. The shoot
ing occurred at the corner of Stockton
and Union streets. The man and his
victim had been sitting In Washington
Square park quarrelling, but finally
arose and started down Stockton street.
The woman turned to cross the street
when Roth drew his revolver and fired,
hitting her under the right ear. She fell
to the sldevalk dead. One more shot
.ended the murderer's life. The two had
been on Intimate terms, but the cause
of the tragedy Is unknown.,
I ment is the result of the thorough con-
slderatlon given to the reports received
from Sir Claude Macdonald, the British
Minister at Toklo, and the examination
of international law authorities by legal
experts. A dispatch from Sir Claude
Macdonald confirms the reports that
the Knight Commander had no contra
band of war on board for Japan. The
Government and all the British author
ities, it Is asserted, unite on the point
that there was no justification for the
sinking of the vessel.
It Is felt In Government circles that
the Knight Commander Incident over
shadows the Red sea seizures, which
practically have been adjusted, but
which have failed to settle the question
of the rights of neutral commerce.

ALGIERS, July 27. The Peninsular and
Oriental Steamship company's steamer
Malacca, which was seized in tho Red sea
July 1C by the Russian volunteer fleet
steamer St. Petersburg, has arrived hero
with a prize crew on board.
After a protracted conference on board

manding tho prize crew, It was announced
by the British.
by the British at 5 o'clock this evening. 1
The orders to surrender the Malacca
were evidently a complete surprise to
Capt. Schwartz, who Immediately after
his arrival notified the French naval au
thorities that ho required COO tons of coal
and a good supply of water and provi
sions to take him to Llbau, in the Baltic.
II was not until an hour later that tho
Russian Consul, M. Towalzevsky, board

Schwartz of the settlement of the diffi
culties regarding tho Malacca since tho
vessel palled from Port Said.
It transpires that during the Malacca's
voyage In tho Mediterranean to this port
Hwo British warships escorted her for a
"short time, and then disappeared.
RUSSIAN PRESS SILENT.
No Comment Regarding Complica

ST. PETERSBURG, July 27. The
Russian press has been significantly
silent for two days past regarding com
plications over the actions of the Red
sea cruisers. Not a single word of
comment nppears In this morning's
newspapers concerning the sinking of
the British steamer Knight Com
mander, and there is no doubt that the
Government has requested the papers
to refrain from printing their views on
thu affair. The Government depreciates
the provocative attitude of the British
press, and probably does not desire
that the Russian papers shall fuel to
The lack of press comment is note
worthy. Even while tho British are
calling for the most energetic action
against Russia some of the Russian

The Russian Government has not re

BLAZE IN BIG
Flames Among Chicago
Every Available "Engine in
Stock Yards District
Fire Caused by an Overheated Dyna
mo Causes Loss of Nearly
Half Million Dollars.
CHICAGO, July 27. The confer6nce
between the State Board of Arbitration
and representatives of the packers this
afternoon In an effort to bring about
peace was a failure. The packers de
clared that the union leaders had failed
to live up to the arbitration agreement
decided upon last week and that under
the circumstances the packers did not
care to make any further agreement
with the strikers.
CHICAGO. July 27. Fire broke out
among tho packing-houses In the stock
yards today in the lard refinery of Swift
& Co., and soon gained such headway
that every available fire engine in the
stock yards district was called out. Ru
mors of Incendiarism were rife. Exam
ination, however, apparently showed the
cause of the blaze to have been an over
heated dynamo- The building was
filled with tierces of lard, many of
which exploded, spreading the burning
grease in every , direction, f Louis F.
Swift directed the firemen in their at
tempts to reach the blaze.
The fire threatened a number of build
ings near by. but the firemen managed
to keep the flames from spreading.
Th6usands of strikers attempted to
get near the burning building, but ropes
were spread by the police, blocking the
streets for three squares away. The
contents of the building- were said to
be valued at $400,000. ' i
A feature of the blaze was the tem
porary Imprisonment of nine women
stenographers In an elevator In Swift's
ofllce building The cage was caught
between two floors and the young wo
men were In a panic. Ofllce employees
put up ladders, cut the wirework of the
elevator cage, and carried them out
Besides the fire, another cause for tu
mult was the fact that today, for the
first time, wholesale packing wus In
augurated. Promptly, a clash occurred.
Turned Back by Pickets.
Francis T. O'brien, secretary of the
Acme Manufacturing company, ap
proached the entrance to the yards On
a wagon, himself holding the lelns. He
was delivering a load of sleeping
equipment for non-union men. but
pickets compelled him to turn back. He
protested to President Donnelly, but to
Packing Plants at Work.
At the stockyards today while the
packers, firm In their stand went ahead
slaughtering stock and doing ay much
other work as posalble In the circum
stances. Convinced of an improvement
in the situation, as far as available non
union help and capacity otherwise of the
plants were concerned, the packers had
sent word to shippers to be somewhat
more generous with their consignments
and as a result the receipts of cattle,
hogs and sheep were considerably larger
than had been the rule during the pre
vious days of the strike. There were
more men working according to the em
ployers, and more work for lliem to do.
Danger From Rioting.
To minimize ih danger of rioting,
should the packing companies attempt
to deliver meat to local customers with
non-union teamsters. Chief of Police
O'Neill has given instructions that all
hauling shall be done on Halylead
street, which will be strongly patrolled.
While' it Is said to be the Intention of
the packers to ship practically all the
meat to outside points by rail, and make
no effort to take caro of the by-products,
the strikers expect to cause them
much inconvenience by shutting off sup
plies ay far as possible.
Eight negro strike-breakers on the
way to work In the stock yards were ar-

Victims of Riots.
Clarence Hall Is the first victim to die
as a result of the strike. He was pass
ing on a wagon near the yards and re
ceived a bullet wound.
Joseph V. Harum was found today
suffering from several knife wounds.
Upon regaining consciousness he said
he had been attacked by strikers. Two
arrests were made.
Police Draw Revolvers.
Repulsed in an attempt to remove a
hanging effigy of John Witrel. who re

they could disperse a mob of strike

A sudden 'downpour of rain caused
crowds to disappear nnd the tendency
toward rioting was checked. The storm
saved the life of J. B. Joyce, a negro
strike-breaker. A mob which, had at

sudden bursting of the storm.
