when Zelix was regarded as a possible
ltipM of utmost cower for the State,
but the man who killed him insisted he
committed the deed to avenge himself
because Zellg had robbed him of $400
earlier in the day.
An open trolley car was moving north
ward in Second Avenue shortly after
S 30. Zellg was sitting on the fourth
seat from the rear end. A man running
from a doorway near Thirteenth Street
began to run after the car It was not
going ery fast. In fact, the man could
easily have overtaken It before it reachd
Fourteenth Street. But he waited until
the crossing of the Fourteenth Street line
cut off the light in the car for the in
stant of passing.
Fires In DnrVneas.
In the moment of darkness there was
the red flash and the crashing report of
a pistol shot.
The Dursuinz man had Jumped upon the
running board, had pressed a revolver

Zellg had swerved his head at the last
minute, and the bullet. Instead of enter

from behind the rigbtar.

National Republican Club, at Fall
Meeting, Says Nomination
Was Fair.
Resolutions pledging the hearty sup
port of the Republicans of the District
to the candidacy of President Taft and
Vice President Sherman in the coming
election were unanimously passed by the
National Republican Club of the Dis
trict at Its first fall meeting. The reso
lutions also state that It is the unani
mous belief of the members of the club
that the cries of "stop thief" are fac
tional and unwarranted, and that the
nomination of President Taft and Vice
President Sherman were brought about
by perfectly fair and just means.
An election held to fill the two exist
ing vacancies on the board of governors
of the club resulted in the unanimous
choice of B. F. Smith and C. E. Rich
ardson. Charles Linking was selected as the
assistant treasurer of the National Re
publican Club. He will act as assistant
to National Treasurer Sheldon. Mr. LIn
klns was nominated by Cbapln Brown,
and the secretary of the club was In
structed to cast the unanimous ballot of
the club for Mr. LInklns.

Erwln Bergdoll. in a Benz, was second,
and G. Anderson, In a Stutz, was third.
The race was marred on the final lap
by a serious accident to Ralph De

earlier 4n the week, and Tom Alley, his
mechanician. In a desperate effort to
pass Bragg De Palma's Mercedes col

Twelve cars started In the race and
six finished The fastest lap was made
by Teddy Tetzlaff, driving a Flat. He
covered the course at a speed of 77 2

two laps. In the third lap Wlshart

were fighting for the honor of negotiat

went around in six minutes, twelve sec

seconds better.
De Palma and Bergdoll contented
themselves with a slower pace until
they had covered nearly half the race.
Then Do Palma passed Tetzlaff and
likewise Bragg, and enjoyed a momen

Tetzlaff helped out the situation, by
breaking a distance rod and he had
covered 241 miles when he stopped for a
final rest.

that affairs la this country bare
reached a atate wherein a beaevolent

by President Taft to a representative of
The Washington Herald, in the most re
markably frank newspaper Interview
even, given by a Chief Magistrate of the
United States.
The President was In high spirits
when he received the caller in the spa
cious work-room at Parramatta, the
summer White House here. A drizzling
rain was streaking the windows while
he talked, but a wood fire gave warmth
to the scene within doors.
Seated iu a wicker chair the President
talked freely of the men and issues of
the campaign. Referring always to the
Bull Moose candidate as "My former
friend. Mr. Roosevelt." not once during
the hour's conversation did Mr Taft
evince either bitterness toward his oppo
nent or dejection as to the outlook of
the Presidential race. Candor and ab
solute conviction were the keynotes of
his talk. Not the least surprising phase
of this candor and earnestness was his
attitude toward the election In Novem
ber. Serenely Sore of Reflection.
The President seems serenely sure of
political doctrines and principles to which
he is pledged.
Mr. Taft faced every question squarely
and answered each Jn detail, without
displaying the slightest disposition to
clothe his replies in phrases of doubtful

London, Oct. G. Sandansky, the bandit
who kidnapped Ellen M. Stone, and a
force of 2,500 Bulgarians have burned
the Turkish barracks at Oschumaya and
occupied the strategic Krena Pass,
above the River Struma, according to
dispatches to-day from Sofia.
The foregoing Is one of the most sen
sational Items of Balkan war news com
ing from the front to-day, and is re
garded as important, as showing that
Sandansky, who commands a formidable
force of fearless brigands, has enlisted
his services with the Bulgarian army
and will be active against Turkey.
The radical demands formulated by
the Balkan states to be submitted to
Turkey make a declaration of war
practically certain. Turkey cannot
consistently grant one of these de
mands. The plan now Is for the Joint
governments of the Balkan states to
formally present their ultimatum early
next week. The ultimatum will em
body the minimum terms acceptable to
the united kingdoms.
Christian Governors Demanded.
It Is demanded that Turkey appoint
Christian governors, and In renewal
administer affairs In each of the six
provinces of European Turkey on a
home rule basis, each province to have

Into the brightening flames, as If seek

to Mr. Roosevelt's changed attitude.
The conversation then switched to the
broader issues of the campaign.
"Mr. President, do you regard the

reply. "It la fraught with more dancer

Suffrage League of District
Will Hold Election on No

There will be an election In the Dis
trict of Columbia on November 5, at
which the people-rlll have an oppor
tunity to teglster thtlr choice In regard
to popular local government and to ex
press their preference for President and
Vice President of the United States.
This was the somewhat startling declara
tion made by Thomas E. Will at the
Teople's Forum last night.
This election is to be held under the
auspices of the District of Columbia
Suffrage League. Polling places are to
be established, watchers and clerks aft

or statute on the subject at the expense
of the Suffrage League The people will
be Invited to assist at the polls, and the
election will be conducted like elections

results tabulated and made public.
In making his announcement Mr.
Will admitted that the league had un
dertaken a large contract, but he
though It would be carried out In an
Intelligent and orderly manner.
Leuirne la Serloua.
At least the league is serious In its
intent, and it proposes to hold this
election as a great publlo demonstra
tion and object lesson to Congress and
the people of the world that the Dis
trict of Columbia Is not so lost to the
meaning and value of its liberties that
It proposes longer to submit to a con
dition tantamount to serfdom.
Mr. Will also circulated a petition
in the audience at the Forum last
night, calling for government by the
people, and asking Congress to grant
it. The petition was returned to him
with thirty-two signatures, of which
several gave their addresses.
These were Incidents In one of the
most Interesting meetings of the Peo
ples Forum. Mr. Wll1 spoke at length
on some of the quee notions people
nave regarding the kind of government
that should prevail at the Capital of
the United States, where the scheme
of government Is carefully laid down IA
the Constitution and the laws of Con
gress In part Mr. Will said:
" Hold Erroneous Opinions.
"Because It is the seat of the National
Capital, some people imagine that it's
local government must be different from
that of other American communities.

In point of enthusiasm anything he has

Jennings Bryan, who met the Presiden

could not ask you to make a complete
tour of Nebraska, so we have brought
Nebraska to jou."
Mr. Bryan dnd his friends had actually
fulfilled this declaration by bringing ten
special trains filled with voters from va
rious parts of the State. The population
of Lincoln Is 60.000. but fully that number
of persons were In the streets of Lincoln

his side, rode up the main street In an
The meeting between Gov. Wilson and
Mr. Bryan, whom he had not seen since
the Baltimore convention, was hearty.
At Omaha this afternoon the candidate
was greeted with wonderful enthusiasm.
The most effective address to-day was
one not on the programme. It was de
livered to the Omaha Commercial Club,
where the candidate was entertained at
luncheon. Here the Governor met 500 of
the leading business men of the city.
The Governor told the business men
that business conditions "have got to
change and if they- do not change with
your assistance ou are responsible for
the injury to business that will follow."
Before leaving Omaha the Governor
addressed the Women" JJemocrat Club.
He told the women that "the strength-
of the nation consists In the. hope of the
next generation."
The women, he said, would have more
to do with Influencing the next gener

The candidate was then led through the
crowd amid cheers to the auditorium,
which had been filled to Its capacity for
an hour. It was estimated that It con
tained more than 5.000. There are
fire regulations prohibiting standing n
aisles, and every available space was
occupied. Mr. Bryan was Introduced ,u

and presented the candidate. The crowd
stood up, threw hats and handkerchief
