How the Murderers of Sel jan were Caught
Carrying the Corpse Big Forgery
Scheme Discovered at Butte.
Chicago, July 8. In western despera
do style a man supposed to be C. E.
Cole, assaulted and attempted to rob
B. C. McGloin in his saloon at G4 Ad
ams street, in the heart of the business
district of Chicago this evening. After
seriously wounding McGloin the thief
escaped and made the most remarkab
le race for liberty ever seen in the
streets of Chicago. After firing into a
mab that pursued him and wounding
three citizens, he was run down and
killed by Officer Rosenthal, opposite
the entrance of the Auditorium hotel in
Congress street. The wounded are: D.
C. McGloin, saloon-keeper, three
wounds on the head, will recover; H.
M. Sternberg, shot in the abdomen;
taken to the St. Luke's hospital; will
probably die; Samuel Stone, shot in the
right leg; will recover.
McGIom was alone in his saloon
when Cole entered and ordered a glass
of beer. This was served to him and
he then asked the saloon-keeper to get
Ihim some meat that he claimed to have
left in the i ce box of the saloon. Mc
Gloin walked to the entrance of the ice
box, and Cole, drawing a revolver, or
dered him to go inside and stay there.
McGloin turned and struck the robber
in the face nearly .knocking him down.
The two men then clinched and fought
desperately. Cole managed to get one
arm free and with his revolver he
pounded the saloon-keeper viciously.
Inflicting three wounds on the head.
The robber then broke loose from Mc
Gloin and running to the street en
trance turned west on Adams. Al
though bleeding profusely, McGloin fol
Jowed and was only a few steps behind
the thief, when he turned into O'Brien's
ealoon at 84 Adams street, and still
holding the revolver In his hand, ran
out of the rear door on Quincy street.
He then turned east and at State street
boarded a south-bound cable car. Mc
Gloin was still close upon him, and
Cole seeing that he could not shake off
his pursuer, ran through the car.
Several citizens had by this time
Joined in the chase and after running
one block to Jackson street Cole fired
a shot into the crowd, which failed to
hit anyone. The flight and pursuit then
turned toward "Wabash avenue and
south upon that street. Officers Rosen
thal and Day at once joined in the chase
and as Cole was badly winded by this
time they rapidly came up with him.
Half way between Van Buren street and
Congress Rosenthal was close upon his
man and ordered him to surrender.
Cole replied with a shot and the bullet
tore into the stomach of Sternberg,
who was among the leaders of the pur
suit. Just before reaching the corner
of Congress street, the ollicer fired at
the fugitive, who returned the compli
ment. The bullet of the officer went
wild, but -that of Cole brought down
Stone, another pursuer, with a ball in
the leg. Rosenthal fired a second time
and this time Cole staggered. He con
tinued to run, however, turned the cor
ner and ran east on Congress until he
was directly in front of the entrance of
the great Auditorium theatre where he
fell. He died within two minutes with
out saying a word. The officer's bullet
had passed through the left kidney and
into the luns:. Nothing is known of the
man in Chicago. The only manner in
which his name could be determined
was by the laundry mark on his cloth
ing which read: "C.E.Cole." He was
of slender build, about five feet eight
inches tall, and had a dark moustache.
Inside the collar of Cole's coat was a
tailor's tag bearing the name of G.
Bernheimer & Co.. Kansas City, Mo.
Prom thre the police are inclined to
think the man came from that city.
Kansas City. July S. Like the mem
bers of the Denver city council, Kan
sas City councilmen are in hot water
and are threatened with a rope and
Local assembly No. 3,S.1J Knights of
Labor filed a communication to the
mayor and city council demanding mu
nicipal ownership of the gas works to
day, and T. W. Gilruth, recording sec
retary of the assembly created a lively
scene in the city clerk's office by ac
cusing certain councilmen of unfairly
treating the people.
When Gilruth entered the city clerk's
office he threw the document on the
desk with a rap of his knuckles and
said to Councilmen Brown and Kid
well, who were standing near:
"We mean business, gentlemen. You
must not exploit the rights of the peo
ple in the manner customary with the
council for some time past."
The councilmen made a sharp retort,
whereunon Gilruth continued: "It is
plain to us that the council has been
engaging in crooked business and 1 '
will tell you very plainly tiiat tne peo-
pie are getting exasperaieu
If this
thing continues, sir, we will visit you
with ropes."
After a few more hot words, Gilruth
hurried away.
Omaha, July S The police ascertaind
today the manner In which the body of
John Seljan was taken to the river
i'rom the boarding house in which he
was murdered. Thomas Kinney, a
Vnion Pacific engineer, identified three
rf she prisoners as the men whom he
t ' served at 2.30 o'clock on the morn
ii g ot the murder going toward the
ri r with a fruit vender's cart on
which they were carrying some heavy
object wrapped in a heavy blanket.
Noting the shape of their bundle. En
gineer Kinney at the time was im
pressed with its resemblance to a
human body. The men, too. acted
strangely. Two of them walked ahead
and seemed to be on the outlook, as
though to give warning, should they
happen upon any belated pedestrians.
The engineer was on his locomotive,
which stood on the South Thirteenth
street viaduct at the time when the
three passed under.
Denver. Col.. July S. A special to
the Xews from Butte, Mont., says:
The preliminary trial of H. A. Sloan
and Wiriiam McMahon today develop
ed a gigantic forgery scheme affecting
bankers and merchants in nearly every
lirgo city in the United States. The
two men wer arrested several weeks
ago when they presented themselves
at one of the banks in this city and at
tempted to collect 5S5 on a "contract"
Ate aa rrtisexnent in a publication
called Laird's Industrial Gazette. The
bank rejected the contract as a forg
ery. On the men were found hundreds
of similar contracts bearing the al
leged signatures of various merchants
and contractors. Their dummy is filled
with advertisements for which the con
tracts were supposed to be given,
pasted. The address of the publishing
house is given as 61 to 69 Gold street.

Whltecappers get in Their Work on Farmer
Fljnn, Near Hennessey.
Kingfisher, O. T., July S (Special)
A report reached here tonight that
twenty farmers near Hennessey were
arrested for white capping. The story
as related runs as follows:
Some six months ago a man named
Flynn. alleged to be an uncle of Dele
gate Flynn of Oklahoma, rented land
In Kingfisher county that the neighbors
were using as a pasture.
Since that time the farmers have ex
hibited a bitter feeling against Flynn
and several threatening letters were
sent to him.
On the Fourth of July Mrs. Flynn
and a Mrs. Maxwell had a scrap over
some insinuations made against Mr.
Flynn in which Mrs. Maxwell got the
worst of it. This made the feeling
more bitter.
Sunday night about twenty or twenty-five
men went to Flynn's place,
turned his stock loose, pulled down his
fences, damages his house and. It is
said, .ordered him to leave. He recog
nized the men and had them arrested.

The action of isdom is based on the
fact that the national council failed to

furious wind and rain storms ever
known In this vicinity for years. The
day had been Intensely hot and there
there were many people out on the
lake in sailboats and as the storm
came suddenly it was at first thought
that many lives had been lost but when
the round up was completed, it was
found that everybody had turned up
safely. Incalculable damage was
done all over the city, signs and awn
ings being blown away, shade trees
uprooted, windows smashed, etc The
big store of the Rothschilds, occupying
nearly a whole block on State street.

Springfield, Mo., July 8. Reports of
the flood disaster at Winona, Mo., pub
lished heretofore are now known to
have only told a part of i the horors of
the disaster. Owing to the fact that
Winona is In a mountainous region, al
most inaccessible by wagon and that
the railway is washed away, news of
the flood is hard to obtain. Railway
conections were established this af
ternoon by running a train on either
road of the Current river branch of
the Kansas City, Fort Scott and Mem
phis road but it will be several days
before the gap can be closed up in the
road, as the grading has been washed
out for a long distance. Several offi
cials of the railway and other parties
of this city left for Winona on a spec
ial train this morning to render all the
assistance possible to the flood-stricken
people. The bodies of Rev. G. W. Dun
can and his daughter Mat tie. and Miss
Norma Nevins were found about noon
yesterday under a large drift of broken
timbers about a mile below Winona,
also the body of an unknown stranger
who was stopping at one of the hotels
and was not therefore known to be
missing until his body was found. A
terrible stench arises from the mass of
hogs, horses, cattle and other animals
drowned. It is charged that some of
the visitors, men and women are strip
ping and appropriating every tiling of
value. For several miles below Winona
may be seen wagons and household
goods of all kinds and ead animals
scattered in all directions. Over two
hundred people were searching yester
day for dead bodies. The body of Geo.
Evans' daughter was found this after
noon. The body of Lloyd Wright's
daughter is still mising.
Late news from Thomasville, Oregon
county, shows that while great dam
age was done, there was no loss of life
and everything is safe there now.

Neodesha, Kan., July S. (Special.)
This place was visited yesterday by
the worst windstorm It ever experien
ced. Rain began falling at about 3
o'clock in the afternoon, shortly after
which the wind rose to a gale, and con
tinued to blow at that rate for about
thirty minutes, the result being very
destructive to weaker buildings and
corn crop. The Commercial hotel,
owned by W. T. Wetmore of Wichita,
was partially unroofed, and the inter
ior flooded with water. The school
building of eight rooms, suffered the
loss of that portion of its roof belong
ing to the south wing, and also a por
tion of the wall, the whole falling in
side and carrying with It the upper
floor. Condon & Carpenter's bank was
also unroofed, and Mrs. O. H. Monroe's
photograph galierj-, a small frame
structure, was moved several feet from ,
its foundation. A windmill wheel
twenty-five feet in diameter, which
furnished motive power to Fonda's
feed mill, was blown down, together
with the heavy machinery to which It
Tas attached, and completely demol

China as the result of the treaty of
Shimoneseki. The terms demanded by
Japan may. he said, under the circum
stances, be regarded as reasonable, es
pecially in view of the retrocession of
Loa Tun peninsula. The treaty has
been observed and carried out by
China with scrupulous good faith. Her
conduct in this respect has created a
very favorable impression in Japan.
The loan just concluded through Rus
sian Influence will enable China to pay
the first two installments of the in
demnity. These two Installments
cover half the Indemnity, and the bal
ance, extending over six years, will be
a comparatively easy burden for the
Chinese government, if any skill is
shown in the management of the Imp
erial revenues. The country has great
resources and has never yet failed In
its financial engagements. Hence the
peace concluded at Shimoneseki is not
likely to be broken on account o f the
shortcomings of China. If a rupture
occurrs it Is more likely to be brought
about by the Intermeddling of the Eu
ropean powers. The intervention of
Russia on account of the terms of
peace was not unexpected and is not
unnatural in view of her predominat
ing interest in the orient, especially on
the .north Pacific coast of Asia.
That France followed the lead of
Russia created no surprise in the east,
but that Germany should unite with
them In a display of force against Ja
pan was entirely unexpected and is
not yet understood. British residents
in China and Japan are very bitter
in criticizing their government for its
abstention in the matter. They allege
that its failure to join with other pow
ers in rearranging the terms, has lost
for their country the prestige and has
left Russia a free lrind in its influence
and control at Pelf ng.
Of all the countries diplomatically
concerned in the contest, the United
States has come out of it with better
grace than any other. From the first
her interest has been recognized by
both belligerents as purely disinterest
ed, her Qnly desire being to render such
serviCekswouJd bring about an hon
orable and lasting peace. The conduct
of the state department in its very de
licate relations with both combatants
has been marked by good judgment
and by few mistakes, and the good of
fices of our ministers and consuls in
China and Japan, where they repre
sented the interests of both govern
ments, have been very useful and are
highly appreciated by both.
Being asked why he declined the in
vitation to remain in China as adviser
of the government. Mr. Foster said he
had spent the greater portion of the
past twenty-five years in foreign lands
and while his residence anroad nad
been generally a pleasant one, he had
found no country like his native land,
and he desired to spend the remainder
of his life in his native country. He
confessed that if the Invitation had
come five or ten years earlier he would
probably not have declined it.
The resumption of the old plan of
forwarding daily weather messages,
except on Sunday, to all forecast dis
play stations receiving such informa
tion by government telegraphic ser
vice, was decided by the agricultural
department today. It is the first im
portant scheme for Improving the fore
cast service to be put into operation by
Chief Moore of the weather bureau.
The present system of sending these
messages only when aeclueu changes
in weather conditions are expected,
was found objectionable as tending to
ward indifference and neglect and
many urgent requests for a change
were filed. The resumption of the plan
approved this afternoon by Acting

are to the effect that they are now

Advance Party of the Revolutionists are
Turned Over to Their Enemies.
London, July S. A press correspond
ent writing from Van. Armenia, under
date of May 30, says: The advance
guard of the revolutionary party,
which, as announced a week ago, was
betrayed to the Turkish government
by the Yezides of Tchiboukla, on the
night of Sunday. May 19, is not in
prison in the city of Van. Only one
member of the party escaped, and he,
at the earliest possible moment, put
himself in communication with the
correspondent of the press. The latter
is now in possession of complete in
formation with respect to the prison
ers, but he is not disposed to furnish It
to the Turkish government so long as
there remains the slightest chance that
these men may escape death. He holds,
for the present, at least, a considerable
part of the facts concerning them.
The men had been hidden in the.
mountains waiting for reinforcements,
making plans for carrying on their
work and the weather having turned
cold and wet, they went to the house of
Hahto, head man of TcMboulka. to
warm thomselves and dry their cloth
ing. Hahto was supposed to be friend
ly to the Armenians' cause, as ho was
not a Turk, and great numbers of his
countrymen had been massacreed by
the Turkish government in the Mosul
district In JS&2. Upon arriving at
Hahto's house the men stacked arms
in the corner and gathered about the
"While there Hahto's scribe, a Turk,
called his master out of the house anil
insisted that they be handed over to
the Turkish government. The scribe
threatened to denounce Hahto to the"
government unless the men were be
trayed. Hahto then called together a
force of Kurds and Yezides. and order
ed them to make the capture. The vil
lagers went Into tho room one by one
and took part In the conversation. At
a signal they seized the guns and com
manded the men to surrender under
pain of instant death. Token by sur
prlse the revolutionists made no resIst
enee. Of tho fourteen members of the
party only one escaped. Each man had
a rifle and six of the party had revol
vers. The prisoners were taken to Sevi tht
next day by the soldiers and were th-n
marched sixty mile3 to Van. where
they arrived Wednesday evening. Their
arrival was watched by a large num
ber of Turks and Armenians. On the
way there they were beaten by gun
butts and prodded with bayonets and
otherwise maltreated. As the ingiisn
member of the party was unable to
walk the whole distance he was given
a horse to ride the last twenty mlls.

Havana, July 8. A serious enjrajce
ment haa taken place between the?
Spanish troops under Colonel Asuar
and Rabi, an insurgent leader, at the
head of a large force, in which tho lat
ter was defeated with great loss.
It appears that Major Sanchez receiv
ed information that a force of 1,500 in
surgents under the command of Rabl.
had occupied strong positions near Man
! zanlllo, province of Santiago de Cuba.
The major sent a. messenger to his su
perior officer. Colonel Azu&r. proposing
to him that they should Join forces
and make an attack upon the insur
gents. The messenger, however, fell In
to the hands of the Insurgents, who
hanged him and scat word to Major
Sanchez in the name of Colonol Ax
uar to make an attack upon the insur
gent position from a point which com
pelled the troops to approach the insur
gents through a narrow thoroughfare.
Major Sanchez recognizing the dttii
culty of the movement, which he waa
apparently dlreoted by his colonel to
execute, sent forward two advance pick
eta of twelve and thirty men respective
ly, under the command of the sergeants
with instructions to push forward to
the right and to the left of the narrow
thoroughfare, far removed from them
and to be careful to take up advanta
geous positions from which they could
protect the advance of the main body
of the troops under Sanchez' command.
The sergeants cleverly followed out
the instructions. Major Sanchez then
advanced carefully upon tho Insurgent
position, protecting his men by every
inequality of the ground. But as he ex
peoted. the troops were no sooner inside
the dellle than the insurgents were mad
with enthusiasm and their machetes
played havoc among tha troops, who
were hemmed and unable to deploy oa
account of tho narrow road they had to
follow. But it was here that the two
advance pickets under the two erg
cants came to tho rescue- From their
elevated position they kept up a contin
uous and well directed fire upon, the In
surgents within range and eventually,
assisted by a charge of tho Spanish
troops, compelled thtm to retreat out
side of the defile. The Spanish rushed
forward after them and once In the
open, they charged the insurgents with
great courage and compelled them to
retreat hastily. The Insurgents that
sought refuge in tho etrong position
they bad previously left in order to at
tack tho troops, but the soldiers car
ried this position and put the enemy to
flight with a loss upon the field of 2SO
killed. The troops lost fifty mn killed
and wounded.
It was at first reported that the In
mirgents were commanded by General
Maceo. but it was later learned that
they were under Rabi akni and tha
Maoeo took no part in the engagement.
White HnniMt to bm Altvmri to Meet th
Necessity or of Reception.
Washington. July 8. The Blue Tar
tar at the White House, where Presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland wire married,
and where President receive on Xevr
Year's d ay and other official occasion
is to have a fifth doorway, which is
now being cut out of the south end into
the Red Parlor adjoining, and Is said
to be Intended as a privato entrance
for those who are Invited to assist the
president and his wife at their recep
tions and who enter the "White Houm
through a private door In tho rear of
the Ked Parlor.
The Blue Parlor Is the favorite publto
room in the White House on account ot
its exquisite proportions and its his
torical associations, and more money
has been expended upon it proportion
ally than upon any other of the pr
lors. Xothlng but tho necessity for
providing entrance and exit for mem
bers of the recfetvlni? party at the
crowded official receptions would Jus
tify cutting the new doorway la th
beautiful curve of the wll, but thr?
is no doubt about the necessity, for the
crush at receptions increase every
winter, so that ingress and egress arm
more difficult.
There are now four doorways in th
Blue. Parlor, but only tho admitting
the crod from the Red Parlor and per
milling it to pass Into the Green Par
lor and so on Into the East parlor, art
used. Thr door opening on th nr
portico Is nver use, and the doorway
opening into the main corridor is clos
ed during receptions by a glide'! r-
Colonel Wilson of the army sapjrl-
tendent of public building and,
grounds is considering other means De
rides the cutting of the new doorway to
relieve the pressure on tb Blue Parlor
during receptions, which mke it dif
ficult for ladles to get to the receiving"
party without injury to theinselYe and
their gowni. It was evident last win
ter that there must be ton attempt at
improvement In this respect, for awar
ladies suffered and many others could
not get in at all because of the crush.
