GZAR IS IN HIDING BECAUSE
OF MASSACRE OF JEWS
Authorities Fearful for His Safety Now That
Full Extent of Atrocities at Kishineff Is
Known—Murders and Pillaging Were by
Order of Police and Under Cover of Troops.
Special Cable to The Globe.
ST. PETERSBURG, May lr.—Since
the awful disclosures of the Kishineff
massacre the czar has been more close
ly guarded by the police and the Rus
sian officials than at any time since he
ascended the throne.
The authorities are fearful for the
czar's safety. He is practically in hid
ing. He is said to be greatly shocked
by the awful news. All the reports of
the massacre have been sent to him
and he knows the full horror of the
atrocity. So far as can be learned no
protest has yet been made by any gov
ernment against the unspeakable out
rages perpetrated upon the helpless
women and children.
It may be said positively that the
killing and pillaging were done under
cover of the troops and by orders of

Special fo The Globe.
HOUSTON, Tex.. May 16.—A high
silk hat, probably the first ever worn
in the small town of Fagan, west of
Houston, was responsible for the death
of Philip Buntz, of New York. The
victim was traveling for a Bible pub

was that of a clergyman. When he ap

That night he was set upon by a
crowd of drunken cowboys and mor

in one of the saloons of the town.
Buntz walked up to the bar where the
cowboys were drinking and ordered a
lemonade. The bartender repeated
the order in a tone of voice sufficient
for all in the crowded bar room to
hear. One of the cowboys insulted the
wearer of the sifk hat. The remark
was resented and some one threw a
Jariat over the shining mark.
Buntz showed fight and was set
upon. In the melee he was struck over
the head with a six-shooter, suffering
a fracture of the skull. He never re

COVER UP SHORTAGE
Bank Cashier Can't Be Found, Nor
Can Sundry Thousands.
SOUTHPORT, Conn., May 16.—A
■warrant was issued tonight for the ar
rest of Oliver T. Sherwood, cashier of
the Southpcrt National bank and son
of E. R. Sherwood, president of the
bank, who disappeared from here last
Thursday. Sherwood is charged with
the defalcation of between $50,000 and
$80,000 of the bank's funds. The di
rectors elected Frank Sherwood, a
brother of the missing cashier, to fill
the latter's position. Experts then were
called in and an examination of the
books was made which resulted in the
discovery of the shortage.
Sherwood was president of the Wil
bur Camp Mining company, of Colo
rado, and the executor of a number of
estates in this county. It is feared
that the mining company and the es
tates may have suffered losses also,
and an examination will be conducted
to ascertain if possible the exact
amount of the defalcation. Friends of
Sherwood say that his disappearanct
is brought about by insanity induced
by overwork. The bank officials are
authority for the statement that the
books show evidence that the over
work was due to his fear of discovery
nnd an attempt to fix the books so
that the shortage might not be discov

roots in Chicago, was the work of
somebody connected with the yellow
