-Publication of Libelous Anti-American
Aeticles Brought to Attention of
State Department.
Washingto.-"That Enrique Maza,
the reporter who attacked Hugh Gib
son, American charge of the legation
in Havana,. was, merely a tool in the
hands of Cuban plotters antagonistic
to the United States, and who would
like to get the Cuban government into
trouble with this country, was the
opinion expressed here by Senor Mar
tin-Rivero, the Cuban minister. He
was of thie belief, he. said, that Maza
had not attacked Mr. Gibson of his
own' volition, but that he had been
urged on by ' others who had1 made
him think he had been insulted and
that he should seek revenge.
Under no circumstances, no matter
what his. provocation may have been,
said the minister, was Maza justified
in th6 action he took. That justice
would be done inthe case was the
declaration of Senor Martin River.o.
The mnister has notified his gov
ernment of the demands of the United
States that the assailant be punished.
As soon as he had learned of the at
tack, the minister had "spontaneously
r . sent word to Cuba," he said, "that the
United States had laws rendering vir
tually Immune from attack the per
sons of foreign representatives here,
and that on account of this reciproc
Ity, the full -vigor of the Cuban law
would be applied. In case a country
which doesn't protect Cuban represen
tatives," said the minister, "no fur
ther rights are extended to its diplo
mats than to any other foreigners."
He immediately called attention, he
said, to' this clause in their laws.
Havana. Cuba.-In consequence of a
vigorous protest by Hugh Gibson, the
charge d'affaires of the American lega
tion here, against .&e release on triv
ial bail of Enrique Maza, the news
paper reporter who assaulted him,
Maza was arrested for the third time
by order of the audiencia court and
committed to jail to await indictment.
Immediately after the re-arrest -of
Maza, the squad of secret service ipen
who had been detailed to watch the
American legation and to attend Mr.
Gibsdn wherever he went, was re
lieved from duty.
Mr. Gibson's vigorous insistence
that his assailant be prosecuted arous
S ed a fresh storm of indignation cf the

The primary in Charleston was at

affirmed its protest against the Pan- t
ama canal bill. In a note filed with
the state department by A. Mitchell
Innes,, charge of the British embassy,
it was stated that if a satisfactory

The note submitted says Great Brit- t

after due consideration it is found I
that no satisfactory agreement can be I
reached in the matter Great Britain
declares that it will be necessary to
appeal to arbitration.
Mr. Innes was instructed by his
government to file the protest and he
sent it to the staite department. It
stated merely that Great Britain still
stands in her previously explained at
titude in regard to the Panama bill.

In the race for the United States
senate B. R. Tillman, the incumbent,
continued to run strongly, with the
indications that he would go on in
the first ballot. He more than dou
bled N. B. Dial's votes and lacked but
little of gaining a similar decisive
advantage over W. J. Talbert, his
other opponent. The vote: Tillman
61,700, Talbert 31,176, Dial . 23,563.
Tillman's majority. 6,961.
For attorney general, J. Fraser Ly
on, the incumbent, was running well
in front, but lacked the necessary
majority, and It was apparent that lie
would have to make a second race
with Thos. J. Peeples of Barnwell.
Mr. Lyon was nearly 13,000 votes
ahead of Mr. Peeples, but the voting
of the other two candidates more
than made this up. The vote stood:
Lyon 52,411, Peeples 38,791, John R.
Earle 12,200, B. B. Evans 10,823.
For State treasurer, S. T. Carter
kept up his remarkable run, bringing
his vote up to 72,557, to 41,376 for his
opponent, D. W. McLaurin..
John G. Richards, Jr., seems likely
to go into office for another term as
railroad commissioner without having
the trouble of going into a second
race. At a late hour Mr. Richards
was leading the race by a big margin,
and had enough lead, if held, to. do
away -with the necessity of a second
race. Mr. Richards' majority over
both his opponents is 1,166. Later
returns, however, may cut this away.
Aside from the large vote cast, a
feature of the primary was the over
turn in many counties that went to
Blease in the last primary. Notable
among these were Orangeburg and
Charleston, especially the later. Orange
burg, which went- to Blease by a
small majority in 1910, gave Jones a
majority of ,almost 1,000.
Richland county, where the fight
raged hot all the time, gave a -ma-i
jority to Blease, but it -was far less
than that by which the county, went
to'the governor In the last primary..
Dorchester went foi Jones by a
small majority, as did Calhoun, but
Dillon swung into the Blease column,
along with Marion. Darlington was
'about the same as Marion. In Flor
ence the race was close, with Jones
finally getting the advantage
Anderson's vast majority was what
really turned the scale, on the face
of the returns, in favor of Blease.
Aiken, which last time went to the
governor strongly, this time gave him
a comparatively small majority.
' In Chester the 'two candidates got
an even. break, the* vote being ex
actly the same.

their .services 'were not needed, as the

"Lucky" Stranger'"s "Shoo
down" Brings Rain of But
lets and Players Flee.
Kentuckian's Ire Is Aroused Wher
Another Falls From Sleeve, and
Five Men Are Wounded-Chair hi
Also Used in the Melee.
Hammond, Ind.-Barring' the facl
that five men were wounded: all the
furniture was broken up and bulleti
flew like hail, Victor Barrens' ittle
poker party at his roadhouse in Wes
Creek, near this city, the other nighl
was a decided success.
All those present held good hands
In fact, such. a lot of good poker handi
being dealt at the same time -was al
most unheard of by most of the play
ers. Moreover, they noticed that twc
players s'eemed to have a happy fac
ulty of holding the best hands whem
there were many "big" hands -dealt.
This fact might not have been com
mented upon, however, had not Jamle
Phillips, a lanky Kentucky visitor,
noticed another peculiarity of. thl
game. ;.
One. of the "lucky" players had
opened a pot and drawn three cards
Phillips drew one cird and filled a
flush. He bet half of his pile of chip,
and, to his consternation, was raised
by the "lucky" stranger.
"Let's see what you've got," said
Phillips, "seeing" the raise.
"Four aces," said the "lucky" play
er, exhibiting his hand.
But that was not the most remark
able. feature of the hand. Two of the
aces were hearts.
"Got any more aces?" asked Phil
lips. dryly.
The possessor of feur aces angrilb
waved his arms to show that he conk
not be trifled with in that way. The
movement was an unfortunate one,
however, for another ace flew out 'of
his sleeve.
That was enough fo; Phillips. He
picked up a chair and threw It at the
"Got Any, More Aces?"
"lucky" man. Then he kicked ovei
the table, smashed the chandelier'
and threw a cut glass pitcher througi
a small buffet.
Edward Brooks, a horse trader, wa
disappearing through a smashed win
dow when Phillips drew a revolve:
and fired at him. Brooks' rightslei
was broken. Several revolvers were
drawn and five men wei-e wounded be
fore the fight finally was concluded.,
Phillips made his way home, threat
ening to kill anybody who tried tc
stop him. He gave himself up half azx
hour later, however, when the sherifi
reached there from Kankakee.
