HELD TRAIN TO
Fast Express Stopped
Engine Strikes a Man and
Threws Him Into a ,
Passengers Take Hand and Rescue
Follows After an Hour's "Wait
NEW YORK, Aug. 24. A fast passen
ger train outward ' bound from Jersey
City on Its way to St. Louis, was held
up more than an hour on the trestle
over Newark bay while a man who was
wnlklng on the track and had been
knocked into the water was being res
cued. He "was a tramp. Another tramp,
an alleged burglar, a newspaper report
er, an oysterman and two travelers fig
ured ln the rescue.
Threw Man Into Bay.
Half-way over the bay the engineer
saw a man a few feet ahead directly In
the train's path. He blew the whistle,
but before the echoes had died away the
locomotive grazed the man and hurled
him Into the bay. The train was
brought to a quick stop. Passengers
about to retire sprang to the windows.
Out ln the ba,v a black form was? visi
ble, making feeble efforts to keep afloat.
A man, coatless and with no shoes, said
he would save the injured man. He
dumped and swam toward him. He
succeeded In keeping the head of the in
jured man above the water, but could
not make his way back to the bridge
against the tide. - Aid was necessary,
and Charles Cameron of Smith Center,
Kan., appeared in his night robes and
dived Into the bay, but the three could
not beat against the swift tide and an
other passenger volunteered. On the
suggestion of a woman the signal cords
were cut from six cars and tied togeth
er. The last volunteer took along one
end of the line, but it parted when those
on the bridge tried to pull the swim
Oyster Boat Called Into Use.
A reporter then suggested going to

The engine was uncoupled and dashed

scene, and, after nearly an hour's work,
tho swimmers were rescued all In good
condition except the original cause of
the trouble. He was hurried to a hos
pital, where he will soon recover.
The first volunteer was arrested when
he got off the train at Elizabeth, an
alarm having been telephoned several
hours previously from Baj-onne charg
ing a man answering his description
with having committed burglary.

WILD DISARM VESSELS.
Russia . to Take Action Regarding
Warships at Shanghai.
PARIS, Aug. 21. There Is reason to
believe that a decision Is about to be ta
ken providing for the voluntary dis
armament of the Rusalun cruiser Ask
old and the torpedo-boat destroyer Gro
zovol, now at Shanghai, and tho Rus
sian cruiser Diana, at Saigon. This
will be done primarily to avoid interna
tional complications and will have the
effect of reducing tho Russian strength
by three strong units, but tho Russian
authorities consider that this will be
offset by the avoidance of the possible
capture of the vessels named by the Ja
panese. The final determination in the matter
has not yet been taken, but the tenden
cies are strongly indicated. It Is ex
pected that the action to be taken at
Shanghai and Saigon will relievo the
caiws of international significance and
practically close them.
A dispatch to the Temps from St.
Petersburg sayo the Askold, the
Grozovol and Diana will be disarmed If
Japan will give the powers a Tjpcclflo
promise not to attempt thereafter to
seize them, , ,. . .. . u ,

Murdered in His Father's
Rsstaurant by Rflambar
of Italian Gang.
Killing Most Cold-EloodedTIan Hav
ing Been Picked to Slay
NEW YORK, Aug. 24. Salvatore
Bossoto, IS years old, was shot to death
at his father's restaurant In Park
street by Carlo Rossatl, 35 years old,
today because he had disclosed to the
police secrets of the alleged "black
hand." The father was knocked down
and choked into Insensibility by the
slayer, who then ran down the street
followed by a great mob. Italians to the
number of 1000 later attacked the
Elizabeth street police station, hurled
missiles at the police and prisoner,
hurting two detectives and one police
man. They would have torn the
murderer limb from limb If it had not
been for the arrival of the reserve po
lice from two station houses, who were
forced to use clubs and fists and
threaten to shoot.
Murder Deliberately Planned.
According to the police the murder
was deliberately planned by an orga
nized gang, which Is alleged to have
been sent to Toronto for Rossatl, who
arrived here last night. After his ar
rival he was seen about Mulberry Bend
with Itullans, and because of his im
mense stature attracted attention.
Bossoto is an enemy of these orga
nized gangs, and his son Inherited his
father's opposition to the lawless ele
ment of their countrymen. When not
studying music young Bossoto helped
about the restaurant.
Asks Police Protection.
Several weeks ago he learned that the
murderous gang about Mulberry Bend
had planned to rob a number of Italians
who were coming to New York and had
engaged board over .the Bossoto restau
rant. Young Bossoto went to the
police and asked protection for the
men, nnd an Italian detective arrested
twelve suspicious characters, who were
held until the men had taken ship for
home. Out of jail the men determined
on Bossoto's death.
Ordered Prom Restaurant.
Early today Rossatl entered the
restaurant, und when approached by
the elder Bossoto said he wanted noth
ing. As Bossoto was about to close the
placo he asked Rossatl to leave. The
latter became Insolent and refused.
Young Bossoto, who was in the kitchen,
heard his father and the man In an
argument, and came out. Up to .this
time the man had made no demonstra
tion of violence, but the instant he saw
young Bossoto, Rossatl took a pistol
from his pocket, levelled it at the youth
Boy Falls Dead.
The bullet struck the boy between the
eyes and he fell dead. Rossatl then,
according to the police, struck the elder
Bossoto with his fist, knocking him
down, and started to run. but was cap
tured beforo he had gone two blocks.
"Bridge of Death."
On Sunday the Bossratos found on
their door the "bridge of death," a
cabalistic sign of the Sicilians which Is
said to be a threat of death. The elder
Bossoto looked upon this as a Joke at
the time. At the police station Rossatl
said little beyond declaring he had
shot In self-defense.

that they have lost none of the prestlgo

Salt Lakers Busy.
The Salt Lako and Denver delegates,
however, contlnuo to buttonhole the dele
gates and express every confidence that
one or the other city wll lcntertaln the
congress next year. Tho time when tho
selection shall bo made is not fixed and
it may bo at any time during the ensuing
year that the board deems wise, allowing
sufficient time for the preliminary work
essential to the success of an annual con
vention. Hence tho result may not bo
known for 30veral months.
Tho report of tho committee on bulld
irgs and permanent headquarters elimin
ated every other city from tho contest
for that honor except Denver and Salt
Lake City, and that is to bo tho consid

will bo the crucial test of tho voting
strength, tho report of the commlttoe on

order for tho opening session of the day.
Row Over Resolutions.
Resolutions reported back by tho com

tho forenoon session was devoted to de

recommendations that they bo not adopt

Immediately thereafter a resolution by

comments upon the subject by Col. John

Warm discussion was aroused over a

Utah called upon the committeo for tho
reasons for Its attltudo. J. T. Cornforth
of Alaska made an Impassioned appeal
for Its consideration, and P. F. Steele of
Alaska, who Introduced the resolution,
followed with nrcumcnts In its favor.
Politics Mixed In.
Secretary TalmoEO of Utah explained
that the committee did not wish to mix
political questions with the business of
tho convention. Secretary Mahon np
pculo to tho congiess not to reject the
resolutions meant to benefit the industry
as a whole. Finally tho resolution was
adopted by a very largo majority.
Candidates for Scciotary.
Tho OreGon delecatlon has selected J.
Frank Watson, the present third vice
president, as their candidate for member
of tho board of directors. Tho candidacy
of Phillip S. Bates for the secretaryship
will also bo put forward by tho delega
tion, unless the present incumbent, Ir

In which event Mr. Bates will probably

Pinal Asault on tho City Is Imminent
Japaneso Confident of tho
TOKIO, Aug. 21. The final assault on
Port Arthur Is Imminent. Hundreds of
Japaneso guns continue to pour a de
structive fire Into tho city and harbor
along the lines of forts and entrenchments
preparatory to tho infantry assault. It is
evident that tho Russian lines havo been
weakened and partly penetrated In the
vicinity of Autzshan and Itzshan forts.
Tho entire line of Russian defenses Im
mediately about tho harbor are within
rnngo of tho Japanese guns. A number
of Russian forts and batteries contlnuo to
Deathroll Heavy One.
Tho Japanese death-roll will bo heavily
Increased before they nre captured. The
direction of the Japanese attack creates
the Impression here that the city and de
fenses on either side of tho harbor en
trance will fall first. Tho final stand will
be mado at LIaotIc3han.
Japanese official channels of Informa
tion remain closed and the Navy depart
ment's announcement of tho striking of U
mine by tho battleship Sevastopol and tho
firing upon tho Russian forts by the cruis
ers Nlsshln and Kasugn yesterday arc
the only disclosures made for several
days. It Is believed here that both sides
havo suffered heavy losses and that tho
final record will muko tho aiogc tho blood

Japanese Are Confident.
Tho Japanese nro suprcmoly confident of

General Payne may possibly be hauled

(hat If a showing was made to him that

ported, treated one of the court
subpoenas with scorn and refused ser
vice from Constable Simon, an attach

Justice Hurley was In earnest. 'I

shown that he has treated a summons
and a constable of this court with dis
respect, I will order his arrest for contempt,"

threatens disastrous results to tho city.
Tho strike, which has continued Inter

that It is useless to continue their ser

second ballot, I cannot say, except that : r i'iBBfl
