BARELY ESCAPE HANGING
Soldiers Come to Rescue In Time-
Premier Apologizes When Facts
j Are Presented.
Rome, June 17. Details of the es
cape of a party of American Baptist
clergymen from the hands of a" super
stitious mob at Avellino, at the time of
the recent earthquake, have been laid
before Premier Luzzatti by James P.
Stuart of St. Louis, who was sent by
the American board of Baptist missions
to Italy to investigate the Baptist mis
. sion in this country and who returned
a few days ago from the province of
Mr. Stuart reported to the premier
that the situation in that district was
critical owing to the struggle between
Catholics and Baptists. On the night
of the earthquake he and his compan
ions, he said, were brutally attacked.
Blamed Baptists for Quake.
The populace seemed to attribute the
quake to the presence of the Baptists,
and a crowd numbering into the thou
sands set upon the Americans with the
avowed intention of hanging them.
"The police officials," said Mr. Stu
art, "wanted us to leave the province
immediately and secretly, but this we
refused to do, as the Italians would
have said that we had fled, and we
would have lost what we have already
"Later, however, we took our depart
ure according to arrangement in a pub
lic manner, but we were guarded by 200
.soldiers with guns and bayonets as a
protection against the 5,000 or more
persons who lined the streets, yelling,
cursing and threatening us."
Premier la Apologetic.
Premier Luzzatti urged upon Mr. Stu
crt the advisability of avoiding any re
taliatory measures or any demonstra
tion which would be apt to disturb the
He expressed the opinion that the ac
tion of the Italians was due more to
their panic stricken condition because
of the earthquake than to any enmity
against the Americans.
Mr. Stuart has decided to postpone
his return to the district in order to al
low the excitement to subside.
On wafts of mingled myrrh and musk
I flutter up and down the dusk;
I see the pale gold primrose break
The sheathing beryl of its husk.
An entity that cleaves and clings,
I taste the rose's inner springs:
At the weird gleam of marish fires
I singe the pollen from my wings.
Remote, scarce tangible, and shy,
Elusive as a dream am I
A little haunting dream of love
That pauses as it wanders by.
Light as the spindrift of the sea,
At dawn I faint, at dawn I flee
Into the vague, the outer void,
Like a blown wraith of memory.
