ficgro iman, named Robert Edwards, alias
"?"Billy the Kid." last evening, shortly after
? o'clock, which resulted in Mr. Wren br?
an* cut on the hand and Edwards being
shot through the left kg.
As Messrs. Wren and Gibson were corn?
ine down Seventh Street, near Leigh, they
saw aman waiking along in front of them

a-athcr suspicious, the officers called to him
to halt, and. instead of doing so, ra'n. and
Vas -pursued a short distance, when he
?Uddenly turned Into an allcv.
"??? officers were near him. and he seized
a child's tricycle, which was in the alley.
? The officers advanced on him; he struck
?t Mr. Wren, and landed a severe biow

?lred on him, the ball taking effect in the
3eft thigh. Th.'s brought him to the ground,
and he surrendered.
The officers took him to the Second Po

Armor Plaie and Projectiles Again
- Under Consideration.
WASHINGTON*. Slay 9.?Again ??-day the
Senate discussed in secret session _ the
mysterious projectile with which the Navy
Department has been experimenting on
Sir. Tillman reiterated substantially the
statement concerning the Indian Head
tests of armor plate which he made yes?
terday. He pointed out the effectiveness
of the projectile, and used that fact as an
argument against the payment by the
government of monopolistic prices for ar?
mor. He arraigned the Navy Department
for making public yesterday the details of
a test of armor with a six-inch gun. in
which one of the "Soft-nosed?? projectiles
pierced the plate almost as it would have
pierced oak. declaring his belief that the
test had been made public for the effect
it might have upon the Senate debate on
the pending bill.
Sir. Chandler felt that the Navy Depart?
ment nad not dealt frankly with the Senate
in respect to the in form a lion regarding the
Mr. Hoar, of Massachusetts; discussed
the subject briefly, reprecating the evi?
dent inability of the Senate to keep its
secrets and criticising the Navy Depart?
ment for publishing information withheld
from, the Senate.
After some brief discussion It was de?
cided that the armor plate matter might
as well be decided in open session.
In this connection it was pointed out
that there really was no secret about
the soft-nosed projectile.
It was shown that the projectile, which
?is a solid steel shot?not a shell?carry?
ing no explosive charge, would pierce
the best of armor when the conditions
of the test were perfect in every particu?
lar, but only in such conditions.
