Says Latter Wanted Wide Open
Town, and That Led to Battle.
Charles F. Murphy last night Issued a long
statement attacking Senator P. H. McCarren.
He declares that his warfare against the Brook
lyn Senator was not brought about by McCar
ren's support cf Parker or his desire to maintain
the autonomy of the Brooklyn organization;
that the real trouble was that McCarren wanted
to have a wide open town In Brooklyn In the
campaign Mayor McClellan had pledged his
word, the statement says, that the "lid" should
be kept on tightly, and McCarren had tried to
nullify these promises. It was therefore neces
sary to combat McCarren's leaderEhlp on this
The statement of Mr. Murphy, given out by
Thomas F. Smith, secretary of Tammany Hall,
was in the form of questions and answers. It
waa as follows:
"Have you seen the statement Issued yester
day by Bird S. Coler. in which he Insists that
the differences between yourself and .Senator
McCarron arose over the question of police pol
icy In Brooklyn, nnd not over politics?" Mr.
Murphy was asked last night.
"I have," replied th«j Tammany leader.
"Then. Mr. Murphy, the assertion which lias
frequently been made that you and the Ser.ator
disagreed because he favored the nomination of
Judge Parker is not true?'"
"It is absolutely false." declared Mr. Murphy
emphatically, "and Senator McCarreu knows it."
"How about his charge that you have been
trying to curtail Brooklyn's autonomy? "
"That nlso Is absjurd and untrue, as recent
events sfio* Let me say now. as emphatically
as I can. that Benator SCcCarren'a declaration:;
in favo.- of Judge Parlce:- had absolUtel) nothing
whatever to do lth causing our disagreement,
nor had any alleged Interference on my par .
eithe- directly or remotely, with Brooklyn's
autonomy. Kobod) knows that better than
doc-; Benator McCarren. These reasons hav
l>een give:i out by him to the public in order to
Oisgu'se the real cause.
"You wi'.l not^ that no complaint was ever
heard of any Interference with Brooklyn's af
fairs until it wr.s rumored thai thei Police Com
missioner bad become dissatisfied with hla
Brooklyn deputy. But when that deputy waa
removed the charge waa then for the first time
loudly proclaimed it seems strange that, in
stead of assuming that the Commissioner's nc
tlon waa prompted by politics, the newspapers
did not ascertain the real cause."
"Do you mean. Mr. Murphy." he was asked,
"to tlmat* that the former Brooklyn Deputy
Police Commissioner was removed because of
Bomethtng that reflected upon hi* conduct of
police .-iffair3 In Brooklyn?"
"Commissioner McAdoo i* better able to
answer that question tha.t 1 am," replied th*
Tammany leader. "la connection with th« •üb
ject of Brooklyn's autonomy, I v..' to say that
every appointment of Brooklyn men to office
under the present administration before the r<»
moval of the Brooklyn Deputy Police Commis
sioner waa made on the recommendation of th»
Brooklyn Democracy, of which Senator Me
<"arren was th' leader. There was no com
plaint then of any Interference with Brooklyn's
"People should remember that Just before the
recent city election Tammany Hall, against
whlcb the flpht waa made principally, promised
a good, cleai governmenl in the event of suc
cess. If n oral foulness exists, no matter by
whom encouraged, the blame will fall upon
Tammany Hall, especially If the foulness is In
Brooklyn. Had less concern been shown re
oently for the preservation of th (> decency of
Brooklyn th^-re might have been no difference
between Senator McCarren nnd myself, no pre
tence thai he v as opposed because of hla \ le? b
on the Presidential question and no excuse that
he is fighting In defence of th«- autonon of
"in cither words, the sole i autf of the disagree
ment between us WS4 over th* fulfllmenl or non
fulfilment of 'he btsdajes made to the people by
the Democracy of this city that the Democratic
administration wonld nol stand for blackmail
nnd corruption of nny kind anywhere In Greater
New-York, no mattei by vhom encourafed, but
that the people would get what waa promised
them--a clean, economical and efficient govern
Tne M*tr:
"Police Commissioner McAdoo was fn at hla
home and asked as to Mr. Mur] i
the removal of Henry F. Haggerty, Senator
McCarren'a law partner, as Deputy Police Corn
n issioner for Brookls n.
"'Mr. Murphy's reasons foi liaggerty'i re
moval are correct. 1 declared the Pol! >■ Commis
sioner. 'Politics figured absolutely no) at all In
noval, which waa because Mr. Ffaggertj
\v;is entirely out of sympathy with the ••
■:i of affairs In the Pollc< Department.
Thar being the case, for the good of th-- service
he w>s removed and his place Riled by a man
v. h<> was willing to act In harmony with the i>r>
lice ' ' immissii er In regard to any other feat
ure of Mr. Murphy's Interview, 1 < .■. ■
ing fit this time. To-morrow 1 shall read it In
type, and probably shall be Killing to dictate
ay.'i Issue a typewritten statement covering my
participation in the case."

Princeton Students and Army and
Xavy Men Battle.
Princeton students, an army officer's son. an
admiral's nephew, some other men. two bull
dogs. Including the Princeton Baseball Club's
mascot, and House Detective Shepherd, of the
Park. Avenue Hotel, were in a free fight In the
hotel enf£ and In the street early yesterday.
The detective got the worst of it. no one else
being badly hurt. The dogs chewed each
other, but were separated.
Some of the Princeton students who had seen
their baseball team whipped at New-Haven
Saturday pat up at the Princeton Club, oppo
site tho hotel, and half a dozen of them strolled
over to the Park Avenue Cafe. One had the
mascot in leash.
Sitting- nt two tables were a -well known doc
tor, the admirars nephew, the captain's son. two
regular army lieutenants and a few others,
friends of these men. They were joking with
or.c another, end one of them called the atten
tion of the rest to the Princeton bulldog and
"Gee. what an ugly lobster. "
An insult to their -mascot was too much for
the Princeton men. and they bristled to a man
and came forward. It took only a few seconds
to start a fight. The bulldog leaped on a table
end looked on with his eye S half closed. The
fight went on hotly, each man picking out his
antagonist, and, by tacit agreement, beating
each other according to the rules of the Ameri
can duel.
Thomas Ryan, the hr.rkf-eper. sent a few hall
boys into the fray, but they retired quickly. The
fighters fought their way to the street. The
bulldog followed. Here Detective Shepherd,
without saying who hf was. tried to be peace
maker, lie grot what peacemakers generally get.
The ho.= ti!i-- camps by common consent Joined
forces and he was struck ajraln. knocked down,
thrown into the gutte- and Jammed against
the housewall as often as he arose
While Shepherd was beinc; mauled Frederick
Reed, manager o.* tho hotel, arrived. He had
with him his per bulldog, a prize winning ani
mal of some pedigree. The prize winner and the
iikisii'; s;.|f? each other and decided not to let
the students and the others ha\e all the sport.
Mr. Reed managed to lei the fighters know
who they were thr.ishiriß, and effected a recon
ciliation. Then the student;- £"t clubs and pried
at the bulldogs' Jaws and jammed their teeth
till the does decided to ]>i ga of each other.

Reign of Terror in Tenement Home
—Txjco Wounded.
In the heart of Charles F. Murphy's distil t
lnst night two men were wounded in r\ ahoot
lng affray that had for Its battle grour.fi the
fourth floor of the crowded five stcry tenement
housej N T o. 014 East Slxte»nth-at. William Gll
len. who lives In the rear apnrtment on that
floor was attacked by twenty men. who had
previously attacked him during the day. When
he refused to open his door several shots were
fired through it. Finally opening the door he
wns struck on the forehead by a bullet and
slightly wounded.
He fired his own revolver five times Into the
cro^d. and probably mortally wounded Wtllia;::
Wynn. nineteen years old. of No. 428 East Fif
tp»nth-st. Glllen and Wynn were placed under
•irrept, charged with felonious assault, and three
others were arrested as accessories. The poM.-.
expect to make several more arrf-sts.
Glllen refused to make a ooTOplatat against
Wynn or any of the others arrested, and Wyim
refused to make any statement. Gillen said \he
trouble was due to a quarrel orer a flshine: line
at East Slxteenth-st. three weeks ago.
Gfllen was at First-avr>. and Klghtef-nth-at.
about 3 p. m.. when he was first attacked by the
pang and nsaaulted. He waa stabbed over the
right rye and was left bleeding on the sidewalk
Although It was broad daylight, the men got
away safely, and Glllen walked to Bellevue Hos
pital, where his injury was dressed by Dr.
GlUen Is married and lives with his wife, his
baby, a month old. and his brother Peter. In a
four room apartment.
At about 10:30 o'clock last nisht there was a
knock on the dining room door, and Glllen asked
who was there. He was told that he was
wanted outside. Recognizing the voice O.tllen
went to his bedroom and got under the bed. He
told his wife that If the door was broken in to
say that he w;is out.
The men seemed to go away, but poon there
was a BC«bnd summons, and GiUen ordered the
men to go away. His words were greeted by a
shout, nml several men ki. ked at the door. It
opened outward and would not yleln. A second
time the men seemed to go away, and all was
still for about ten minutes. Then the knocks
came again and a voice said:
•Come out here, Gillen, we want to kill you."
Glllen ordered the m.Mi away again and said
he wouldn't leave his apartment.
Glllen went to the door and said
"You fellows E*t away from here or I'll kill
some '"'f you
In response several pistol shots rang out. and
five bullets passrii throuarn the pan^l ol the
door, one of them almost striking Gillen. He
ran to a rear room to Ret his pistol, and pays he
saw several men on the fire escape, all armed,
ready to prevent his escape that way if he at
tsmpted it.
The shots had created ■'» panl-' In the house
and were beard lr. the street A large crowd
( ollerted.
Glllen ran to the d<-»or and flung; It open. A?
he did BO a Phot was fired and a bullet graaed
hi? temple, reopening the stab wound. Gillen
th«-n firM in .■ shots into the crowd in the hall.
Detectives m. Mullen and Gallagher, of the
Bast Twenty-second-st. station, attracted by the
shots, fought their way through five hundred
people, Sprinted up to the fourth floor, and saw
Glllen standing In the doorway with the smok
ing revolver in his hand.
•Who phot you. Glllenr waa asked
'I won't make any statement or any com
plaint," Glllen 19 said to have replied. "Wh»n
1 shot I fh<-,t to kill, and when I gel out ol
this l will settle mj own scores. The police
can't do It for me."
In the mean time the reserves who had been
called, were having their hands full In front
of GHlei a house. A crowd of one thousand
persons had gathered, and all seemed to be fa
miliar with the f»u<l. The majority of them
sympathized with Glllen and threatened ?■>

Fatal Accident in Vineyard Sound-
Passengers in Danger.
Vlneyart Haven. Mass.. June .">. The large
Lorberry, of the Philadelphia and Reading Coal
Company, wan sunk off Vineyard Sound Lighr
ship In a dense fog at T a. m. to-day through a
colllsio.-. with ths ste.ini««r Tallahassee, Savan
nah for Boston Captain Burroughs of ihe
bnrge was drownec!.
The Tallahassee was saved from sinking by
her wat'-rtight compartments, and arrived here
t hl's evening. Her passengers will be F^nt to
Boston by rail to-n:orro\v morning.
The Tali hassee, v.hlc 1 curried nineteen pas
sengers, h'.<l a l.:rK'> hole Ftove \v her bow, and
ran into Menemaba Bight for safety, later pro
ceeding here. The accident occurred within a
quarter of a mile of the lightship. The Lor
berry, coal laden, wns the Btern barge of a tow
of three behind the tug Gettysburg, and w*>«i
proceeding: slowly, when the Tallahassee, which
w«s hunting for the lightship under alow spec;'.
came suddenly on her.
The Lorberry was struck on the starboard
bow, and s.::ik within a few minutes. Captain
Burroughs was on deck when the collision oc
curred, and rushed aft with the steward, en-
SOavorlng to clear the boat. The barge, how
ever. Riled rapidly, and sank fore the fcoct
could be lowered. Tho steward dung to n piec r
of wreckage, and was picked up. Three others
of th» crew who ran to the bow climbed up the
anchor chains to the steamer. The Gettysburg
anchored <>ne of her barges under Gay Head
and look the other to New-Bedford.
Tula accident recalls the wreck of the >'it>- of
Columbus, also a steamer plytag between Boston
and Savannah, which was sunk on a reef off cS.iy
Hen.l. Martha's Vineyard, only a f^w mili-^iom
ihe scne of the accident to the TaUassfltE*, in
January 18S4. In that accident about one hundred
lives were lost. It occurred on a bitter cold night
which was clear, nnd brightened by a full moon.
The exact caus«e ot" the accMsnt Tas never known,
as th« man at the whefl was drowned and the
captain was below at the tr.ne. Thorp were many
hruve rescues by the Indian** who lived on th?
Gai Head promontory.
St. Louis Fails of Imported Excite
ment and Provides Its Own,
St. Louis, June Incensed over their fkflvna
to see a "'grnuine Spanish bullfight," wMrh "he
authorities h.id ordered stopped, a riot was
Started in an arena near the World's Fair
ground" this evening by a crowd of twenty-five
hundred imn and boys; who were unable to cet
their tr.oney back, and the building was burned
to the ground. Four men were arrssted by the
authorities of St. Louis County, charged -vith
destru« tion of property. The crowd, thinking
these men were connected with the show, made
an attempt to mob them, and In their encounter
with the deputy pherliTs a number were roughly
handled and some received scalp wounds. The
building is said to have cost $23w000l It is a
total loss.
The initi.il pcrforniar- r \ y the company of
Spanish bullfighters ha<i b°en advertised wltlely
for to-day, but Governor Dockery. to whom nu
meroua protests had been made by religious and
humane societies, ordtrsd that the nght should
not be allowed to take place. Despite these or
ders, a lurge crowd assembled In the arena at
the advertised time of opening. Before the reg
ular performance a number of cowboys drove
In some bulls, which they ran uound the arena
in true Wild West style. The crowd soon be
came ti-ed of this, nnd called for the bullfight.
The announcement was then made that the
bullfight would be proceeded with. As the
matadors came into the rinß a county official
Pte^pfd up to the announcer and handed him a
paper lnf lining him that the proposed show
could not take place. When this became known
to the crowd they leaeped Into the arena and de
manded th» return of their money, $1 apiece.
Failing to get this, the crowd went to the office,
which was In a sinaJl building outside the arena,
and began to stone It.
This was followed by attempts to burn the
n^aln structure, which was an Immense build
ing constructed of pino. Bits of burning paper
were thrown at the woodwork, and finally some
one went inside and dropped a lighted match In
a pile of hay under the bulldln*. The whole
structure w.-:s soon on fire, and before long waa
in ruins.
A call was made for th« fire department, but
th" single enstlne that responded stuck in the
mud. and there wns nothing to stop the progress
of the flames*. The fire department of the
World's Fair was called out to protect the ex-
Position buildings, but, as the wind bl»w In
another direction, there was no danger.

Washington. June .".—The Japanese Legation
to-day received the following dispatch from Mm
government at Toklo:
Admiral Togo reports that, according to a
message received by r.im through wireless teleg
raphy from the captain of the cruiser Chitose.
which was cruising off Port Arthur, great ex
plosions were heard and rising of dense smoke
was observed repeatedly In the direction of Port
Arthur during Saturday.
Four masts, one with wireless telegraphic in
struments and a sentry box, were seen on th»
top of Lao-Teal-Shan.
Tokio, June .. r—ltr — It is suspected, here that Nfcl
Russians at Port Arthur are communh atinjj
with points on the Chinese coast by mesial aj|
wireless telegraphy. It was reported th.V a
wireless station had been erected secretly at tha
village of Pen-Wang, on Takin Island, one oi
the Miao-Tao group. In Pe-Chl-L.l Strait. and
the Japanese cruiser Chltose visited the Island]
yesterday to investigate. She did not. however,
find anything. It is reported that another such
station has been erected near Shan-Hai-Kwan,
and the Japanese arf investigating this matter.
Yesterday the Chltose steamed In close t-> Lao-
Teal-Shan and discovered four maats and a
watch house near the coast. One of these masta
evidently was fitted for wireless telegraphy
Th* Chitose reports having heard a series of
explosions at Port Arthur, and believes tham t->
have resulted from blastings preparatory t-> Ittl
emplacing of new batteries.

The Japanese naval authorities ensa^- la
clearing out the mines in Ike vicinity of TaH«; -
Wan Bay are employing Japanese shell div-rs
from Kushiu Province for the purpose. Th»se
divers volnr.teered for this work, and are won
derfully expert. It Is said that with their div
ing paraphernalia they can stay under water fcr*
half a day at a tirre.
Hundreds of Japanese fishermen are volun
teering to assist in clearing away Russian mines,
and it is possible that some of them will be
used for this work. These voluntary offers ar*
tnken to illustrate the unity o f the Japanese
people in the war.
The saaasaaoaM reported n f.ie foregoing dispatch
may bans been th» fire o' the Japanese siege guns
ar the reply of the forts. th<» «mind heard at sea
having lost its eontinutty by the ccti'flguration of
the '.anil and the varying force of the wind. The
lietor.aii.n^ may hive bi^n caused, on th« other
hand, by the Russians blowing up their warships
nnd stor-s. hy V.\e springlnic of mines to repel a::
attack si Infantry, or. as the Chitos«"s report say».
by blasting for emplacements.
The avasa smoke bears out the theories either of
OaSBBgS raiis.-. 1 in the town hy Japanese sheila or
the decision of the Russians to destroy their ma
terials of war. Tb« Japanese powder Is absolutely
smokeless, and that of the Russians leaves prac
tically no trace of the guns' location.
