John Gramllck, a night watchman em
ployed in the Terminal Railway yards, had
a running fight with a burglar early yes

changed, but Gramllck was not hurt. He
thinks that he struck tho burglar; who, he
savs, limped as if he had been shot.
The night watchman was making his
usual round of tho freighthouses shortly af
ter midnight, when he discovered one of
the windows In the company's warehouse
at Eleventh and Poplar streets open. He
peered in the window and saw a man
crouching in the corner. "Come out of
there!" he cried. For answer the Intruder
fired a f.Iiot at the watchman and ran out
a door leading into an alley. Gramllck fol
lowed and fired three shots at him. The
man wheeled and returned the fire, but did
not hit the watchman. The fellow made

NOT SORRY THAT KING HUMBERT IS DEAD.
Police Report Rejoicing on "Dago Hilt' in Cheltenham Over the Assassination of the Italian
Monarch Secret Societies Which Are Secret, Indeed Glimpses of Life in
This Alien Community and in Some Downtown Alleys.

SCENE IX "LITTLE ITALY" THE ALLEY
STREETS AND FRANKLIN AVENUE.
It has "been reported by the police in Chel
tenham that on last Monday mornlns, when
the news of the assassination of King Hum
bert reached the Italian settlement. In the
neighborhood of Shaw avenue and Cooper
street. In that suburb, the residents formed
a procession and marched about tho streets
with triumphant cries and cheers for the
liberty of Italy.
Michael Arvano, who claims to be a
cousin of Brescl, the assassin, was lifted
to their shoulders by the excited men and
hailed as the relative of the liberator of
Italy. The Italian community In Chelten
ham Is familiarly known all over the city
a? Dago Hill.
Most of the Italians living there are na
tives of Tuscany, where Bresci was born.
They are Illiterate and Ignorant, finding
employment in foundries and quarries. It is
their dream some day to return to Italy
when It Is placed under the administration
of a republican government like the United
States, and they believe that this can be
most easily accomplished by the removal
of the Kings.
It Is thought that this community, in con
Junction with the Sicilian colony in the al
leys between Seventh and Ninth streets
and Franklin avenue and Morgan street,
have a secret society which is an
archistic in Its tendencies. There is a lim
ited membership, and tho meeting place Is
kept as profound a secret as the personnel
of the society. It is said to have no prin
ciple but the hatred of Kings.
But this association represents only a
small, turbulent coterie. The average Italian
laborer In St. Louis believes that Italy
should be a Republic, but he has more
liberal Ideas In regard to how tho change
in Government should be -wrought. Most of
them belong to the Anita Garibaldi Society,
which is named in honor of the wife of tho
great Italian patriot, who expelled the for
eign Invaders from Italy, and then wanted
Daughters and Sons of East
Side Farmers Organized
THEY ENJOY THE SENSATION.
Not Willing to Share Their
Pleasures With Others Who
Would Like to Join.
A secret society, informal, having no
officers and meeting behind closed doors at
the home of one of the members, when
there takes place an interchange of kisses
In redemption of forfeits, is in existence
among the young folks living in the bluffs
of St. Clair County, midway between East
St. Louis and Millstadt. The society is only
a year old and it numbers as its members
only the most prominent of the young peo
ple in the district. It Is not every one
who can become a member of this merry
crowd, in fact New York's 400 is no more
exclusive, and it Is rumored now that the
almost Indiscriminate osculatory exercise
practiced at these meetings has resulted In
the sealing of one and perhaps two en
gagements. With few exceptions the members of the
kissing society or club are sons and daugh
ters of well-to-do farmers. Brothers and
sisters alike have Joined together and It is
understood that the oath of secrecy taken
on entering the pales of the society la al
most as strong as that taken in the recog
nized secret organizations.
Through a young woman's tongue did the
tale of the doings of the set of young peo
ple come to light She told a bosom
friend and it was not long before others
than members of the club became aware
of the departure In the -way of amusement
BETWEEN EIGHTH, NINTH AND MORGAN
to turn nbout and- institute a republican
government. This society Includes' almost
every Italian laborer In St. Louis, and it
has a larse clubhouse In Cheltenham. Pri
marily, its purposes are to keep alive the
memory of the splendid struggle the peo
ple made for the political freedom of their
country. Cesare Oldani, who has a saloan
in Cheltenham, Is the president of this so
ciety and Tomaso Angelo is secretary.
Co-operative anil Secret.
The Anita Garibaldi Society Is a secret
fraternity. Some day it hopes to achieve
the freedom of Italy. The local branch has
a, clubhouse, a grocery store, a butcher
shop and a saloon, which are conducted on
the co-operative plan. All members con
tribute to tho maintenance of the club and
its adjuncts, and trade at the stores". There
is also a cardroom, a poolroom and a
dancing hall, where some sort of function
is held weekly.
But it is in the alleys between Eighth
and Ninth streets running south of Frank
lin avenue where anarchy la fostered.
The tenants are principally Sellians, 4 ho
sell bananas from carts at the street
corners. They find America a refuge after
breaking the laws In their own country.
One night last week about midnight a Re
public reporter was conducted through the
allej-3 by Ofilcers Aylward and Henderson
of the Fourth District. There are three
dim incandecent lamps in tho alley that
throw a dismal light over the narrow pas
sageway. It Is paved with uneven cob
blestones and strewn with refuse. On
either side of the alley there are dilapidated
brick buildings of uneven height, casting
gloomy shadows. Every window la
screened, but occasionally a rent in a cur
tain or an open door reveals tho Interiors.
AH the inner doors are open, as the nights
are Intensely hut, and the heat is much
aggravated by the breathing of perhaps a
dozen persons in two narrow rooms. Many
find refuge in the close alleys and spread
their sparse bedding on banana carts and
sleep almost nude. The poor little brown
children are divested of every garment and
sleep in the alleys quite comfortably.
As the patrolmen and the reporter walked
through the alleys a lot of curs set up a
SECRET "KISSING SOCIETY"
, i I III 1 1 i ii f i i eg S
OTTO SCHMIDT.. MISS SOPHIE SCHWARTZ.
Members of the "Kissing Society" formed by sons and daughters
of well-to-do St. Clair County, 111., farmers.
and there were large numbers of applica
tions for membership In tho society.
It was said yesterday by one of the young
women who has taken an active part in the
society that these applications were all
turned down. Several of the young men
who were not allowed to enter the portals
of the club sought to get even by playing
"Peeping Tom," but a warm reception given
them one night caused them to bo more
A certain number of games, to which
dismal howl, and then some babies, awaken
ed by the noise, joined in the dismal chorus.
Some men who found sleep Impossible
were grouped before a house-trying to find
comfort in beer. When they were asked if
they were sorry that the King was killed
they shrugged their shoulders and smilingly
replied: "J dun no." Although they can
speak English, they find refuge from ques
tions in pretended Ignorance. They have a
hereditary fear of all sorts of officials. One
young fellow started to tell that he thought
that the new King, Victor, would disband
the army, and that he would then be able
to return to his native country. But when
his father told him In Italian to stop talk
ing, he shrugged his shoulders, smiled and
refused to sny more.
About 4 o'clock in the morning these men
start out with their carts and baskets. In
the daytime the alleys are alive with their
half-naked children and women who go
barefooted and wear their black hair in
thin, tight braids.
In the Sicilian District.
As Oldani is the leader of the Italians In
Cheltenham, so C. A. Scolarl is the leader
of those in the Sicilian district. He has a
saloon at Eighth and Morgan ptreets. He is
well educated and frequently travels
abroad. He says he has met and spoke to
King Humbert. Solari thinks that the
Italian Government is to blame for the as
sassination of the King. The nobles and the
clericals, he says, are oppressing the com
mon people. There are no schools for them
and the country has not the resources of tho
other European monarchies wherewith tho
people may be employed. He thinks that the
condition of the poorer classes would be
greatly improved if the clericul party would
work with the people.

I Paris! said they were not aware that there
is a uarlbaldlnu society in St. Louis. The
only organization which they could namo
were the United Brotherhood Society of
Italy, a semlfraternal and patriotic society;
the North American Italian Society, and the
Italian-American Cavalry. Father Cesare
Spigardi, the rector of the Italian Church
at No. 1901 Morgan street, said he had an
Intimation that such a society existed in
Father Spigardi has arranged a solemn

will be sung on Sunday, August 12. All

there is attached a forfeit for the loser, is
played at each meeting of the crowd. Then
the forfeits are redeemed with kisses.
A Republic reporter and artist visited the
members of the society at their homes yes
terday. The young women blushlngly ad
mitted that they had what was called, for
want of a better name, "the Kls3lng So
ciety." The young men who escorted their
sisters and sweethearts to the meetings
said that they kissed the girls because bath
parties enjoyed it and that It was nobody's
business if they did.
"It It just our own crowd, don't you
know?" explained Miss Emily Erllngton,
otie of the young women who has pbyed a
prominent part In the entertainments. "You
see, we all are very well acquainted and
that makes our meetings very much like a
great big family gathering. We don't mind
the kissing much, as we all know the boys
very well and they ;-eem to enjoy it hugely.
In fact. U Is almost the same as if our
brothers kissed us."
Members of the society are Herman, Car

CLEW TO SON'S WHEREABOUTS.
Christopher O'Neil and Family 10
Renew Their Search.
A telegram received last night from Bur
lington, la., seems to furnish a clew to the
whereabouts of young Charley O'Neil, who
disappeared from his home in Pittsburg a
year ago and whose parents, now in this
cltv, have traveled more than 700 miles in
quest of him. The dispatch states that Geo.
II. Siefkcn of Danville, a little town nbout
thirteen miles west of Burlington, was cer
tain that the missing boy had taken supper
with him the evening of August 3, the pub
lished description ot the lad and the story
told by him, as well as the name of Charley
under which he is going, all agreeing with
the newspaper accounts of the missing
It was in January. 1S03, that the boy left
his home In Pittsburg, Pa. He was 18 years
old and was in the habit of taking a wagon
out bv himself and returning in the evening.
It Wii3 while on one of thepe trips that he
ran awav, being induced to do so by a boy
named Qulgley, who had great influence
with him. For more than a year no tidings
of the bov were heard, and then Qulgley re
turned to Pittsburg in April last and from
him the story of their wanderings was ob
tained. It seems that the boys decided to run away
and ;-pe a little of the world, and Charley
diil not care to return from the West until
he had made a raise of money.
When tiie O'Neil family heard of this de
termination of their son they instantly de
cided to go West and search for him. Ac
cordingly they turned all their belongings
into rash ami set out. neddllng their way.
They nrrived In this city last Tuesday, en
route to Fort Madison, having traveled G17
miles slnre last April, the exigencies of
their business making progress necessarily
slow. Thev are now camped near Forsythe
Junction, just nortli of Forest Park, and
occupy two covered wagons and a buggy.
The party consists of the father, mother,
three sitters and two brothers.
Charles Dyer, a cousin of the O'Xeils.
lives at No. 1504 North Eightli street, and
has been assisting them in their search for
the boy. offering a reward of $2f for his re
turn. He said that either he or one of the
O'Neils would instantly leave for Danville
end see if the boy was in reality the miss
ing lad. He will go by way of Ottumwa
to head off the boy, as It is believed that he
went in that direction.
The telegram from Danville gives Ot
tumwa, us the objective point of the boy,
George Slefken of Danville saying that the
lad announced his intention of going there
and seeing if he could not raise enough
money to get back home. The boy arrived
on the evening of August 3 and asked for
some supper, which was given him. Up said
that his name was Charley and told a story
which indicates he is the missing boy.
. TWO WIVES AT WAR.
Both Are After Possession of Prop
erty of the iliui They Married.
Louisville. Ky., Aug. 5. A divorced wife,
since married, attempting to enforce an exe
cution for alimony amounting to $2,707 on
property which the second wife of the di
vorced wife's husband claims as hers, wa
in a layman's view, the proposition which
presented Itself yesterday for Judge Bar
ker's decision, but the Judge, while in no
way refusing the legal fence, ascertained
that the Court of Appeals had pulled down
a gap. which opening he was Judicially com
pelled to enter, and In this way avoided
decided absolutely between wife No. 1 and
wife No. 2.
In 1879 the then Mrs. Katie Frank, now
Mrs. Alex. Bowlinger, secured a divorce
from John L. Frank, and Ith the Judg
ment for divorce she was allowed alimony
at the rate of $15 per week. This allowance
continued to accumulate until Mr. Frank
married again, and it then amounted to
$2,707. The suit for this amount then went
to the Court of Appeals.
Mr. Frank, as stated, remarried, and his
father, Jacob Frank, at his death, left a
will, which, after leaving a small bequest
to his son, John L, Frank, bequeathed cer
tain realty to his son's second wife. But
after the writing of the will, and before his
death, Jacob Frank invested moneys in a
piece of property on Madison street.
This is claimed by the second Mrs. Frank
under the will as pnrt of the realty be
queathed to her. But this is opposed by the
first Mrs. Frank, who Is contending that
her firBt husband inherited this ns an heir,
and that it Is hence subject to the execu
tion for alimony.
The decision of the Court of Appeals was
practically In fnvor of the first Mrs. Frank,
and Judge Barker's Interpretation yesterday
on a motion to quash the execution and
levy on the property In question was that
the higher court held that the ownership
of the property sought to be subjected to
the execution could not be decided in the
suit then before It, but that the statute of
limitation would run from the time each
alimony allowance was due.
The property levied is to be sold to
morrow, but an injunction will be sued out
In time to prevent the sale, and this will
eventually bring to an issue the second Mis.
Frank's claim to the property.

The papers to-day take up national af

afflicted with a firebug, and the individual,
whoever he may be. Is working cxtensively

ceeded in setting any clue to the Identity
of the fiend who is at the foot of all this
destruction of property.
The course of The fires shows that he is
working gradually toward the center of the
city and every effort is being put forth to
capture him. There were three fires last
night, which were the work of this active
destroyer, and one of these was of an es
pecially unfortunate nature.
There was no loss ot human life, but with
the large barn belonging to John Wora

Just a few minutes previous to this fire,
flames were discovered In two other large
barns, containing stock. In the same neigh
borhood. In all instances these Ares have
been started by the use of a tallow candle.
The grand stands at Lake View Driving
Park, two of the large North Adams street
hay and feed houses and many smaller con
cerns have been burned during the past ten
