Tragedy at Chicago.
Chicago. Aug. 21. As a result of a wild
fight in the Wild East show inclosure in
Midway Plaisance four Belouins were
more or less severely hurt and three of
the sons of the desert langu'sh in Wood
lawn polics station. THe name of but one
of the injured is knowt, the manaeemcnt
of the show refusing to give any informa
tion concerning tbe fracas. This is Hastab
Abr.hd, and he it was who swore out the
warrants against the prisoners, Kashad
Ago.llustapha Aba llalal and Mustapba El
Elahn:s. One of the concessionaires ou
Midway whose word can be relied upon
and who chums to have been an eye wit
ness to the buttle, tells a story of remark
able interest. Here it is:
Irruted Something JJUe Mazi'iipa.
"Just before sunrise this morning the
three men now lying behind the bars stole
from their beds, and taking out one of the
horses ' xed upon it a sort or harness with
a long rope dangling behind. Then they
went to the tent in which Hastab Abithd
s iinitered. They pounced upon him and
b.-fere he was fairly awake had lwjund
and gauged him. One t-f the thongs was
passed under his shoulders, forming a
loop at the end. Through this the rope
was passed and securely fastened. Then
tne ntnniai was lushed into a mail race
about t he inclosure. Around and around
flew the di sen courser dr-ggingthe un
fortunate Abahd over the soft earth.
The sleeping Camp Aroused.
"It was a fearful torture. With the
firtl.,hpf the animal one of its hoofs
struck the victim's head, laying the skull
hire for tin to inches. Every time the
hor?e rame near the avenging trio ha nvs
unmercifully lashed until he flew about
the ritigiwita the speed of the wind. The
uproiu- aroused the sleeping camp and soon
the place was filled with the cries of tiie
dusky men and women Two t -rbaned
men rushed to the assistance of the flying
Abahd, but the three Bedouins responsible
for the outrage bent them buck wit h sword
and lance while the spectators tilled the
morning air with a ri--t of yells.
Hold Itand to the Itc-srce.
"There was a monetary lull in the hostili
ties between the sons of the desert, the
frightened animal with its I leeding bui-
di'n still tearing about tl:e enclosure; then
from the tents rushed a dozen Arabs, half
of them armed with swords a'ld bayonet
ted carbines, and they descended upon the
avengers with a yell that awakened the
people outside of the fair grounds. A
pretty fight followed, in which sabres
were freely used with bloody effect. The
trio made a bold stand, but were beaten
Into subjection before many minutes.
Trouble has been brewing in the Ueduoin
camp ever since it was giveu a position on
Midway. The men say that the manage
ment has paid them no salary for weeks.
Cause of the IHlHculty.
"Three or four davs ago five of the
Bedouins appeared before Director Gen
eral Davis and complained that because
they demanded their wages from the man
agers they were kicked out of the show,
The three men who perpetrated the out
rage on Hastab Abahd were sympathizers
with their exiled brothers and had been
threatened with similar punishment if
they did not cease complaining. For this
threat they held the victim of this latter
torture responsible. They grew desperate
at last and determined to get even some
