New Yokk, Oct. 22. One hundred
Italians sleeping in a temporary barracks
a mile from iNew Ruchelle had a narrow
escape from death by dynamite as the
result of a race prejudice last night.
Conflicts between theru and Irish
laborers ha e beeu frequent of late. A
pitched battie was fought three weeks
ago and since that time the trouble has
been almost continuous. Saturday night
Patrick Riley, who is an expert dyna
miter, put nine dynamite cartridges under
different parts of the shanty and con
nected them by wires with the battery
which he had set about 100 yards away
when a night watchtnau saw him.
The watchman made a run fot- Riley
and the two were soon engaged in a des
perate light. Ilie Italians in the shanty
were attracted by the noise and ran out
to see what was the matter. When they
learned that Riley had planned to blow
them up, it was with difficulty that they
were restrained from killing him.

AN EASY VICTORY.
Xroplieleil for the Olii Managers of the
Santa Fe Kailroad.
Chicago, Oct. 22. It is now certain
that the regular Reorganization commit
tee of the Atchison, Topeka 3c Santa Fe
railroad company will achieve an easy
victory at the arwiual meeting of stock
holders at Topeka next Thursday, hav
ing secured more than one-third of the
proxies of all the stock of the company.
From what can be learned the opposition
or Protective committee will make no
further effort to capture the entire
board, but will confine itself to a light
for minority representation, with a view
of getting one or two of its men on the
board. To accomplish this the Protective
committee will ask that a cumulative
vote be cast, so aa to be able to vote all
the proxies held by them for one or two
men and elect. There is but little pros
pect, however, that this scheme will
work. Prominent railroad attorneys,
well posted on Atchison affairs, say a
cumulative vote cannot bo cast. The
Atchison charter was obtained when Kan
sas was yet a territory, and 'cumulative
voting" was not thought of at that time.
The boarl of directors as organ
ized about a mouth or two ago,
with one or two exceptions, will
no doubt be re-elected. Nearly all
the members of this board are large
stock and bond holders, and are members
of the regular Reorganization committee.
They are: John A. AlcCall, president of
the New York Life Insurance company;
F. K. Sturgis, a prominent New York
! broker; James A. Blair, Son of the New
Jersey millionaire, John I. Blair; Thomas
1. Fowler, president of the New York,
Ontario &, Western; Edward J. Berwind,
a prominent Philadelphia capitalist; Wil
liam L. Bull, jr., of Sweet 6c Co., brokers;
B. P. Cheney, jr., son of the largest in
dividual stockholder; Sam C. Lawrence
and George A. AlcCesson. Boston capi
talists; II. R. Duval, lately put on the
board iu place of Aldeu Speare; C. K.
Holliday, C. S. Gleed and L. Severy
of Kansas. The latter will probably be
dropped from the new board and Aldaee
F. Walker be put in his place, it being
the intention to elect Air. Walker presi
dent of the company.
New Yokk, Oct. 22. Each side in the
war for control of the Atchison railroad
I is predicting victory for its ticket at the
election. 1 he directors, who have pre
pared a slate to perpetuate their control,
claim that they have a clear majority.
The Protective committee claim to have
positive knowledge that the Dutch
proxies, which the directors say they
control, have not yet left the safe of the
American agent of the Amsterdam bank
ers, and as for the arbitrage holdings
legal steps will be taken to determine
whether such non-owners as commission
houses have a right to vote as otockhoM-
I ers. There is a law in that state provid
ing for minority representation on boards
of corporations, and if unable to t-iect
the full ticket prepared the Protective
committee, headed by Theodore W. Alyers
will insist upon naming a minority of the
what mk. ;i.i:j:i says.

Charles S. Gleed, one ot the directors
of the Atchison, said yesterday: "I hear
that it is the purpose of the protective
committee to try to enforce the cumula
tive voting at the Atchison election in
Topeka next Thursday. That is, a man
who holds 100 shares, instead of voting
his stock for thirteen directors will claim
the richt, under a Kansas law, to vote
the lot) shares thirteen times for one
director. This will lie a vicious raid on
Atchison shareholders and incidentally
on mary other railroads. It will be an at
tempt to disintegrate tiie peculiar terri
, torial charter of the company. It will be
i an attempt to establish the principle that
j any such original grant of power, valid
j and binding at the time, may lie set
j aside at will by any subsequent legisla
ture. It will be the most direct trespass
I on the rights of the shareholders that
I can well be imagined. To preserve in

than to destroy or cloud the whole title,

! THAT AMSTKItUAM I'HDXV.
Admitted to Have Been tiiien to the Old

j The last issue of the Wall Street
Journal says: Alembers of the Atchison
protective committee admit this morn
ing that the big Amsterdam proxy has
probably been given to the other side.
They say they have uo official notice to
this effect, but are inclined to believe it
has been done.
In regard to cumulative voting at the
election, the facts are these: The laws
of Kansas authorize cumulative voting.
The old charter of Atchison was issued
under the territorial government, but a
large proportion of the stock of the com
pany had been issued under the gen
eral laws of the state and in
other respects the Atchison has come
under the present law. A legal point is
admitted. The regular board will un
doubtedly claim that cumulative voting
is iillegal in this case. Counsel of the
Protective committee will hold that the
state law applies.
The practical effect of cumulative vot
ing if allowed will be that either party
can concentrate votes upon two or three
directors so as to make their election cer-
' tain, taking chances on the remainder.
