No hint of serious disorder was given until late in
the afternoon. Two or three white men had cautioned
the negroes to be more circumspect in their behavior
and Policeman Gibson, who was on the post in the latter
part of the day, also had spoken to the ringleaders.
Gradually small bands of negroes became merged and a
Jme of fifty men paraded from the block, singing and
jeering at. the- whites.
As the- line was passing the corner of Wharton and
Patton streets one of the negroes made a remark to a
white woman who was on the sidewalk. Gibson heard
it and Jumped toward the fellow, intending to arrest
him. Before Gibson could get . the man he was Bur

, Austin Malone, a white man, saw Gibson's plight and
called for help. - Many white men soon went to Gibson's
aid. Then the fighting became general. One of the
negroes drew a revolver and fired It rapidly. The re
ports brought other negroes and whites to the scene.
As fast as they came .they plunged into the fray. From
curb to curb Patton street* was filled with a mob of com
batants. The negroes used knives, revolvers and such

Prior to the trouble a disorderly spirit had been man

BALTIMORE, Md., May SO.— Mayor
Robert M. McLane of this city shot and
killed himself this afternoon in his
bedroom at his residence, -V 29 West
Preston street. His bride of less than
two weeks was" at the time asleep In
an adjginlng room and "was awakened
by the discharge of the revolver, which
McLane evidently fired while standing
before the mirror of the dressing table.
The bullet entered. the right temple,
and, crashing through the head,
emerged back of the left ear.
Mra. McLane and other members of
the household rushed i to the Mayor's
assistance, but he did. not regain con
sciousness after he fell to the floor,
and expired within an hour.
No cause can be assigned for the act
by any member of McLane's family.
Since the fire of last February he has
been kept assiduously. at. work admin
istering the affairs of the city, besides
endeavoring to direct the rehabilitation
and rebuilding of the burned dis
trict ! This, together with criticisms
by. his political opponents, is believed
by many to have caused a temporary
aberration of mind.
.. PARIS. May 30. — Inquiries made at the Foreign Of
fice, regarding an unofficial intimation that the United
States Government would welcome the aid of France
toward securing the release of Ion Perdicaris and Crom
well Varley from the Moorish brigands show that no
request of that kin4 has been received and that there
fore «no steps are contemplated.
FRENCH AID HAS NOT BEEN REQUESTED.
WASHINGTON. May 30. — Admiral Chad wick's arri
val at Tangier this morning on the flagship Brooklyn
was reportc-d by Consul Gummere, and the Navy De
partment received a cable direct from Admiral Chad
wick. It is not believed there will be any change In the
Fituation until the complete squadrons of Rear Admirals
Chadwick and Jewell reach Morocco. The question of
landing marines will be left practically to their Judg
ment. Admiral Chadwick will confer with Gummere at
once and a report of their views of the situation will be
sent to the State Department.
. Should there be no indication, within twenty-four
hours after due notice has been served, of the release of
the prisoners, this Government will not hesitate to land
marines to assist the soldiers the Sultan of Morocco may
call out for a show of force against the bandits. Should
no relief come under the circumstances, this Government
will then hold the Government of Morocco responsible
for whatever may happen to Perdicaris; and should the
Sultan, after every effort, fail to bring the- prisoners out
alive, the possibility of the situation is the extermina
tion of the bandits by United States marines.
There is no doubt in the minds of the officials here
that the Government of France would gladly aid the
United States in securing the release of Perdicaris by all
means in its power. Because of her authority in Mo
rocco France perhaps could do more in a peaceable man
ner than any other nation to effect the release of the
men. If the United States decide to make any request
for assistance from France, naturally it would be in an
unofficial manner, and if other attempts to secure the
release of Perdicaris fail such intimation of a desire for
French assistance may be made through the State De
partment.
It is the understanding here that the admiral com
manding the American fleet has orders to exercise pres
sure upon the Moorish authorities to Induce them to
accept Raissouli's terms. The Sultan Is willing to pay
a ransom and liberate Raesouli's partisans, who are now
imprisoned, but Rassouli now demands American pro
tection for the settlement. This last condition is con
sidered dependent upon the American Government.
Rear Admiral Chad wick, accompanied -by an aid.- the
"L'nlted States Consul General and two marines, visited
Torres, the representative of the Sultan at Tangier. The
interview lasted ten minutes, after which Torres re
turned the visit at the United States consulate, the
Brooklyn firing a salute in his honor.
Torres has informed the American and the British
representatives that he cannot grant Raissouli's terms.
A special courier, it is reported, has been sent to the
Sultan, conveying the American view.
MARIXES 3IAY PURSUE THE BRIGANDS.
TANGIER, Morocco, May 30. — The United States
cruiser Brooklyn, flying the flag of Rear Admiral Chad
wick, arrived here to-day and was soon followed by the
cruiser Atlanta. Other American vessels are expected
shortly. . i'i-\
The authorities here consider that the position of the
American, Ion Perdicaris. and his stepson, Cromwell Var
ley, a British subject, •who were kidnaped by bandits
headed by Raissouli. is now more serious than before/
The crowded galleries arose and ap
plauded for five minutes, crying "Viva
Combes." Signor Glolittl continued:
"Therefore, the unhappy phrase was
for Italy the happiest. The note con
tained the usual protest which the
Vatican has been repeating for thlrty
foor years. Italy has no reason to
change her policy. She does not fear
the Invasion of the. congregations, as
she has laws to protect herself. If these
laws are insufficient we will make new
ones. To fear that the country cannot
protect itself against the influences of
foreign congregations is to insult Ital
ians. The state and the church must
be as two parallel lines which never
meet. Both must enjoy liberty. It will
be worse for the church on the day
that she illegally interferes in the mat
ters of the state."
Signor Guercl, continuing, said that
Italy had less to fear from the papacy
than other countries. Being near the
Vatican, she could always see prep
arations behind th? scenes. He com
plained that the Pope, who In his ca
reer before he became Pontiff saw, ap
preciated and profited by Italian unity,
should now, as Pontiff, have as high
inspirer and executive against Italy,
a foreigner. Cardinal del Val.
Premier Glolittl, who arose amid a
breathless silence, said the Vatican
note naturally was nipt communicated
to the Italian Government. France had
answered it as she thought best. The
affair was one In which Italy could not
interfere. The Vatican note contained
a phrase regarding the King of Italy,
but the effect produced was such that
they must be extremely glad of the ex
istence of that phrase, as it has offered
Premier Combes the opportunity to
make a statement so flattering to Ital
ian patriotism.

BITTER TOWARD DEL VAIi.
ROME, May 30.— The Chamber of
Deputies was crowded to-day to hear
the discussion of the attitude of the
Government toward the Vatican's pro
test against President Loubet. Signor
Mazza, Republican, called the note of
the Papal Secretary of State, Merry del
Val, a "perfect insult." He recalled
that the Pope had not protested
against atrocious offenses to religion in
France. His Holiness had now risen
against a King who, according to the
Vatican, had stolen the pontifical patri
mony, designating his Majesty as a
usurper. The note, therefore, was a
declaration of war. Signor Mazza
asked the Government to take ener
getic action to prevent the Invasion
of the church into the kingdom's af
fairs. The Government had forgotten
all pride and the national dignity in
answering the Vatican insult by giving
hospitality to Cardinal Svampa when
the King, on Sunday, went to Bo
logna. -The Government permitted the
people of France to- defend Italian
rights.
The Liberals and the extreme par
ties applauded and the galleries joined.

CALL BUREAU, HOTEL BARTON,
WASHINGTON, ' May 30.— The inter
view with former President Cleveland
declaring for Judge Parker attracted
general attention here to-day and ex
cited varied comment. There are some
prominent Democrats in the city, and
of the number here several declined to
talk for publication. Some of them fa
vor other candidates. than Judge Park
er, and see no merit in Cleveland's ad
vocacy .'of; his. nomination. Others are
still afraid to be placed in the' position
of commending anything Mr. Cleveland
may do or say.
.Representative La Mar of Florida
gild: "Mr. Cleveland is unpopular with
the great majority of Democrats in my
State, and, I think, unpopular with
Southern Democrats generally. Not
withstanding this, he has a large fol
lowing In the South, composed of busi
ness men and others, who either did
not support Bryan , or supported him
unwillingly. It would therefore seem
to I me Cleveland's strong indorsement
of \Parker's candidacy, will tend . to
strengthen th« sentiment In favor of
Parker will be the nominee' 'as "hs
choice of the Southern people, and that
Cleveland's attitude may tend to in
crease the harmony- which prevails
among the Democrats of that section."
Senator Culberson of Texas said Mr.
Cleveland's. advocacy of Parker would
probably help the -latter's candidacy
among the conservative Democrats of
the East.. ¦ : •
Former Representative Trigg of Vir
ginia said: "Mr. Cleveland's indorse
ment of Parker will have a far-reach
ing effect. It will, commend the Judge
to thoughtful men as a safe and con
servative candidate."
Republican comment was all expres
sive of the belief that throughout the
East Cleveland's advocacy of Judge
Parker would do the latter much good.
It is figured that Cleveland's position
will have the effect of throwing the
Massachusetts delegation to Parker
after it has given a complimentary vote
to Olney, and that it will carry much
weight in Connecticut, New Jersey,
New York and Ohio.

LIFE SAVED
BY A CHILD
MAY END THE DEADLOCK.
Illinois Republican Convention Will
Reconvene To-Day.
SPRINGFIELD, 111., May 30. — The
Republican . State Convention, . after a
recess of eleven' days, will reconvene
to-morrow afternoon to resume bal
loting for a candidate for Governor.
The previous session covered more
than a week and fifty-eight futile bal
lots were taken, leaving the seven
aspirants for the nomination about
where they stood on the first ballot.
All headquarters have been re
opened and all the aspirants are pres
ent except Governor Yates, who will
arrive from Chicago to-morrow. It is
the prevailing opinion to-night that no
nomination will be made before
Wednesday. Many believe, however,
that, the deadlock will not be broken
before Friday. There is talk of a pro
posal) which was voted down before
the r recess * was taken, to suspend the
balloting for Governor and to nomi
nate the rest of the ticket, provided
the deadlock is not broken to-morrow.
This time it. Is proposed -to except
the. nomination for Lieutenant Gov
ernor,' leaving it to be . taken . up after
the candidate for Governor is named.
The plan is indorsed by the candidates
for the minor- offices.
/About the ; only, story afloat to-night
to : which any credence whatever is
given is that Yates and Lowden have
agreed to throw ¦ their delegates to a
third man. It is said that no third
man has yet been chosen. It Is de
clared to be a part of the compact
that Yates Is to go to the United States
Senate in v 1907 and that Lowden is
to be made Governor four years hence.
All knowledge of such a combination,
however, is denied by Yates' and Low
den's managers. . .
TOKIO, .May 30. — General Nakamura's detachment,
which occupied Liushutun on Friday, captured four Rus
sian guns.
CHEFU. May 31. — Junks with cocoons for the silk
mills are arriving from west of the Yalu River. This
indicates that with the passing of the armies the Chinese
have recommenced their regular occupations.
From a Manchuria merchant it has been learned that
the Japanese have ¦ ccupied the Maotienling Mountains.
100 miles northwest dl Fengwangcheng and directly east
of Liaoyang. There is only one pass through the range.
ST. PETERSBURG. May 51. — The reported defeat of
Cossacks at Aiyangpienmen was the only news and al
most the only topic of conversation in St. Petersburg
last night. No official dispatches were given out last
evening, but officers at military headquarters were re
luctant to accept the, Japanese dispatches. They think
.it^puegible - that the Japanese mtt Generar Mistchenkoti
command, which has recently been raiding in Korea. It
is formed of comparatively raw recruits. thou&Ii now
somewhat hardened bjr three months' campaigning. It
is conceivable that they might have been defeated, but
not Rennenkampf's forces patrolling the Alyang region,
who are veterans of that old command which accom
panied him on the famous ride through Manchuria.
These men are esteemed here as the hariie3t riders and
the most reckless fighters in the trans-Baikal army. Any
disaster to them would have a greater sentimental effect
than the reverse at Kinchou.
The War Office -has received the following dispatch
from General Kuropatkin, under to-day's date:
"I this morning received a report stating that the
Japanese advance on Kwantien has been begun "from
Saimatsza. The number of the enemy is not known."
BRIEF RESPITE.
LONDON, May 31. — The attack on Port Arthur, the.
Chronicle's Tokio correspondent telegraphs, is expected
to begin about Jur.e 15. Correspondents will leave To
kio on June 10, in time to see the capture, probably
about June 20. The correspondent also says 10,000 Rus
sians have been sent up the Liao River in junks to Tie
ling. ' ¦ ¦ s
The Post's Shanghai correspondent wires that several
Japanese transports are landing troops in East Korea,
The reports published in Paris of discord in the in
terview between General Kuropatkin and Viceroy Alex
ieff at Mukden and the southern movement of the Rus
sian vanguard below Wafengtien have given rise to ru
mors that General Kuropatkin has yielded to the wishes
of the Alexieff party and is attempting to relieve Port
Arthur. . -
According to correspondents at Japanese headquar
ters up to May 29 nothing important had developed be
yond outpost encounters. Japanese troops are largely
engaged in building roads and bridges. The Standard's
correspondent says that General Kuroki gave a luncheon
to foreign military attaches to celebrate the victory on the
Yalu, 'while almost simultaneously the Japanese first
army was informed of the Kinchou victory. The same
correspondent indicates the reason for delay in the op
erations. He says that the force that landed at Taku
shan appears to have struck the fringe of the rainy sea
son. The downpour has been very heavy.
KUROPATKIN'S WOES MULTIPLY.
General Kuropatkin, the Telegraph's St. Petersburg
correspondent says, is fighting two enemies — one at home,
the other in Manchuria. While his military reputation
is undergoing a terrible ordeal, he is also accused of fail
ure, as Minister of War, to make proper preparations for
war. The Emperor is alleged to be so dissatisfied that
he would dismiss both Alexieff and Kuropatkin were it
not that he fears the effect on public opinion. The gen
eral impression among the highest classes is that the
fall .of Port Arthur ought to mean the end of the war
and that if the Japanese should succeed in this aim Rus
sia's best interest would be to make peace: but nobody,
the correspondent avers, possesses the moral courage to
make such a suggestion to the Emperor.
The correspondent also asserts that an agreement Is
drafted whereby Germany promises armed support to
Russia, if necessary, to prevent England and the United
States attempting to submit the Far Eastern question to
an international congress and declares that the recent
relaxation of anti-Jewish laws by Russia is the outcome
of the desire of the Minister of the Interior to conciliate
American opinion.
A dispatch from Toklo to-day, after covering the
news previously contained in the dispatch detailing the
fighting on the Kwantung Peninsula, adds that the Jap
anese captured a quantity of powder and six railroad
cars at Liushutun.
The dispatch also says that the Japanese, after de
feating the Cossacks at Aiyangplenmen," northeast of
Fengwangcheng, occupied that place and reinforcements
were sent forward to support them.
SENDING MORE TROOPS TO MAINLAND.
-"WASHINGTON, May 30. — Advices received here re
port the departure from Japan of another division.
While its destination is not stated, it is conjectured that
these troops are about to close in the Russians' rear on
Northeast Korea, cutting off the raiding parties which
have threatened General KurokFs communications. There
are less than 15,000 soldiers in the expedition.
The reported offer of "Japan to China to surrender to
her* so much of Manchuria as already has been taken by
the Japanese troops is .viewed here with interest, because
of the possibility, if the offer i3 accepted by China, that
Russia will hold that' the Celestial empire has thereby
broken her pledged neutrality, thus affording ground for
an attack upon certain parts of Mongolia would t>e
of great strategic value in the war. >
x LIAOYANG, May 30. — The impression at headquar
ters is growing. that the main objective of the enemy is
Port Arthur and it would not be surprising if the actual
assault on that - fortress began within a fortnight. No
important movement <5f General Kuroki had been report
ed up to the time this dispatch was filed.
. CHEFU. May 30. — From Chinese sources it Is learned
that the Russians have four lines of defense between Nan
shan and Port Arthur.
