WHIZZING BULLET JOGS A DELINQUENT'S MEMORY Joe Turner Shoots at. His Slow-Paying Customer, George Casey, Then Chases Him Into Blacksmith Shop--Scene of Excitement Created, but No Lives Lost or Money Collected. Pedestrians on South Main street, near Mercury, at 9 o'clock this morning were horrified to see a man who was standing in the middle of the street suddenly draw a large revolver and take deliberate aim at another man with whom he had been quarreling. The second man was no less horrified than the spectators, for he turned and ran at full speed down South Main street, closely pursued by the man with the gull. They had not gone many yards before the pursuer halted, and taking careful aim at the pursued, fired. Both men then darted into Quinn & Nieman's blacksmith shop at No. 2"13 South Main street, where the quarrel was concluded without the shedding of blood. The man who did the shooting was Joe Turner, who is proprietor of the I.ittle Terrace saloon on East Mercury street, and the man who narrowly escaped being shot and killed was George Casey. It seems that Casey owes Turner a bill which the latter has tried in vain to col lect. How the Row Began. This morning the two men met at the corner of South Main and Mercury streets and exchanged words. Casey said some thing which angered Turner and it was then that the shooting scene occurred. In speaking of the affair John Nieman said: "We were working in the black smith shop when he heard a pistol shot and a second later a badly frightened man rushed into the shop, closely followed by Turner flourishing a revolver. We all scattered, of course, for we didn't know when there would be promiscuous shoot ing. "Turner demanded of Casey that lie pay him some money he owed. Casey in sisted that he did not have it. A large crowd began to gather, and after a few words the two men left my shop and went in different directions." There were no policemen near when the shooting occurred and no arrests were made. The bullet from Turner's revolver struck the cobble stones in the center of the street, and bounding along, spent itself without iniuring anyone. Turner declared he would kill the news paper reporters who dared make an ac count of his escapade. "If you publish this you get shot," was his dictum as he stowed his gun behind the bar. Boilermakers on Strike. Spokane, Wash., June 7.-Allhe boil ermakers in the Great Northern Railway at Hillyard walked out this morning In accordance with orders issued .by the head officers of the union at St. Paul and by the local union.

The president also sent for Car roll D. Wright, the commissioner of labor, to get his views on the situation and also to what might properly be done by the government looking to a settlement of the controversy. It is probable that other con ferences will bie held and the president kept advised of the situation. The president will be in readiness at any time to extend aid, if it is found that he can be of service in settling the dilti culties that exist between the miners and employers. Mining Towns Quiet. [fe ASSoc lATIE;Dm tI'Iss.] Wilkesbarre, Pa., June 7.-Th'le hanging in effigy of J. l'ierpont Morgan in one of the streets of South W\\ilkesbarre by a crowd of men and boys was the only in cident to mar the stillness of the Wyo mning valley this morning.

News from Wash ington that President Roosevelt could not find his way clear to take a hand in bring ing about peace between the miners and operators were received with genuine dis appointment.

STILL ON THE TRAIL i OF PAUL UNDERWOOD (nY ASMOCIAr..) PRI'S:. Tacoma, Wash., June 7.-The three county sheriffs who are pursuing Paul Underwood, the murderer of his baby, now believe that he crossed the Willapa yestcr day afternoon at Riverside, four miles west of South Bend. In the morning he had crossed Willapa bay from Tokeland to Bruceport, and this second crossing was an attempt to deceive the officers by doubling on his tracks. At Riverside, after the second crossing, he met some carpenters and said that he ,learned that Underwood was cornered in an old house at Tokeland. This fooled the sheriffs, as telegrams sent out last night indicate. To the carpenters Underwood said that his name was Fuller, and that he was going to Cosmopolis, 35 miles away and not far from his home. One sheriff is following the new trail, but the belief Is that the officers have been pretty well thrown off the trail. J. R.

I3randall, butcher, Clayton; W. I). Ewing, engineer, Emerson ; Gforge McClure, fireman, Si. Louis; George W. Marvin, brakeman, Wirkwood. The fireman and engineer of the railroad train were injured and removed to the hospital. Almost every one of the passengers on the trolly car was cut by flying glass or thrown against a door, window or seat. The injuries of a majority of the pas setlgers were slight, however, and they set about to rescue the less fortunate. Inability to control the electric car which ran into and derailed the engine, seems to have been the cause of the acc·. dent.
