result of il battle between federal au
thorities and members of the United'
Socialist club, a society of negro fan
atics bearing commissions from a Cin
cinnati detective association, this af
ternoon, Deputy Marshal .lohn Collield
was seriously shot; Guy Fischer, white,
wounded; three negroes killed and two
more severely wounded. Collield was
shot while serving a writ of ejectment
ou members of the society, which had
taken possession of n house and refused
to pay rent or move, declaring that
their authority was higher than that
of the United States. The entire city
marshal V forces were called out and,
they attacked the house in which the
negroes were barricaded, killing three.
Six Are in Jail
Sam Barker, Albeit Barker and Wil
liam Scott were the negroes killed. "Six
members of the organization, including
the leader, Will Wright, a preacher, are
in jail tonight.
During the trouble fifty shots were
fired. Collield 's writ of ejectment wnt
to have been served on Mr. Barker, who
had rented the house.
Tonight nearly every white man in
the city is armed in anticipation of fur

is quiet and becauso this particulai
band of negroes was disliked by othert
of their race more trouble is not likely.
The United Socialists lived apart from
other negroes and were known as tin
Money finders" because it was thoit

LOS ANGELES, Cal., March 20.
Tack Palmer of England was no match
for Jack (Twin) Sullivan of Boston
and went out in the tenth round to
night in what was to have been a twenty
round go before the Pacific Athletic
league. Palmer showed nothing at all.
Sullivan had him at Ins mercy almost
from the start, The Englishman' was
slow and awkward and landed very few
blows, none of which were clean ones.
The gong saved Palmer in the third
round after Sullivan had sent him to
the mat with several stiff rights and
lefts to the face and jaw. Sullivan,
however, did not rush matters in the
fourth aud Palmer covered up and
hung ou until he got his strength back,
and then Sullivan shoved his man away
to cut at his face with ripping rights
and lefts, but failed to put Palmer
away. The remainder of the fight Pal
mer was altogether on the defensive. In
tlio eighth round Palmer was groggy
and was knocked to the mat three suc
cessive times. Twice tlio Englishman
took the count of eight. The last time
the gong came to his rescue.
Palmer came up weak and stagger
ing in tlio ninth, but clinched and hung
on and Sullivan was unable to land
the finishing blow. Tlio Englishman
wa sii badly exhausted that he slipped
and fell to the lloor twice, once rorlling
over ou his back before he was able to
icgnin his feet.
Ill 1)P. tenth it l;eeamc evident that
Palmer was all in. He moved unstead
ily toward his opponent, who sent a
ripping right iippercut to the face and
the Englishman fell forwnrd. His sec
onds to save further punishment threw
the sponge into the, ring. Palmer at no
time during the fight had a single
chance. He was outclassed and beaten
at every point from the begiuning.
Sullivan showed clovcrness and wore a
confident smile from start to finish.

An official statement from the district
attorney's offico is to the effect that
boforo tho grand jury is finally ad
journed it wil enter into an exhaustive
investigation of tho local police depart
ment, against which most serious
chnrgos of graft and wholesale bribery
havo boon made.
"During tlio early part of tho present
investigation," said Detective Burns,
"we discovered that the police depart
ment was corrupt and inefficient. It
harbored and protected every form of
crime. The chief of police had for his
special adviser and confidant a notor
ious pickpocket nnd ex-convict, and
through this man pickpockets wero li
censed to ply their vocation unmolested.
Every house of prostitution paid a
weekly assessment, revenue from one
locality alone Belden place netting
tho department $8,000 a month, lor
almost every saloon license granted by
tho board of polico commissioners, Boss
Abe Ruef collected from $200 to $2,000
as his fee. Every theater that kept its
doors open in violation of the building
laws, after 5 o'clock, was compolled to
pay one-third of its proceeds to tho
boss. Every slot machine netted a
special graft income to the boss, as did
gambling games throughout Chinatown.
It was impossible to obtain a building
permit without first paying from $100
to $1,000 to tho boss, and so powerful
was the political machine that no onu
dared to question the right of the head
plunderer to rob tho peoplo at will."
