Machine Gun Fire Kills 5 in Londonderry Others Are Slain, Many More Wounded in Fierce Fighting Which Keeps Up for Sixteen Hours Constant Barrage Sweeps Streets: W omen Are Shot in Latest] Outbreak ; Reign of Ter? ror as Casualties Grow ._ LONDONDERRY. June 23 (By the Associated Press).?Five Sinn F?iners were killed by machine gun fire em? ployed to cover the removal of several Protestants from Barrack Street to- | night, according to a military state- ? ment. There is a lull now | 10:30 p. m.J in 'he fighting. Scenes of the most terrible descrip- I tion were enacted here last night and lo day. Many streets were swept by a | murderous fire for sixteen hours con-, tinuou.ly. line man was killed and ten dangerously wounded in one sec? tion of the city. Several bodies are j reported >o be lying in Bishop Street. Among the wounded was a young girl ' and those who suffered slight injuries' cannot be estimated. Sniping on a large scale was car? ried on and there was indiscriminate tiring of rifles and revolvers all over the city. The chief conflict took place in Bishop Street, where there was a large concentration of Sinn F?iners in the neighborhood of St. Columba's Catholic College and Nazareth Home. Sandbags' were thrown up from which a s'?ong i fire was directed at. the Unionists in | Barrack Street. There was a vigorous exchange of tire and many casualties resulted on both sides. Police Helpless Menwhile trouble had broken out on : an extensive scale in the region of Longtower Street and Bishop's Gate, where liiere were fierce and prolonged ! exchanges. Sinn F?iners occupying positions on roofs nipped isolated Unionists. The soliders and police ; were on duty, but were unable to inter- j vene effectively The police in Bishop Street barracks. within the battle zone, were virtually! beseiged. Many passersby were wound ed, and it is reported some were killed, j but it is absolutely impossible to get j correct details. A confectioner named McKenna was killed at the corner of Henrietta Street, a few yards from his own i door. A bullet entered his breast , and he collapsed. A priest was sum- j moncd and while he administered the ? last rites firing was suspended. Among to-day's casualties was an elderly man named Whiteside, who was accompanied by his son and daughter. They were passing through Bishop Street, and all of them were shot. Savage Fighting on Waterside During the course of the night there was savage fighting in the waterside district. The rival fnc- , tiens were intrenched in Cross and Bond streets, both of which were : barricaded. Snip?rs were busy until 1 o'clck i this afternoon, and contingents of t troops had to be moved into various j streets which until then were impas- I able to citizens. The -..streets had the i appearance of a battleground. Sand-; Lags were thrown up with sleepy sol- ; dicrs almost in a state of exhaustion after the night's vigils, it is expect- j ed that troops are coming by road,! but no reinforcements have yet arrived. There is fighting in the outlying districts from which Unionists are ; pouring into the city. 500 Create Reign of Terror The outside world has little idea of the reign of terror Londonderry has! been experiencing without respite since! Friday last. The casualty figures from day to day are alarming enough, but ! they picture only the shadow of the grim reality. The truth is, none of; the ?10,000 inhabitants has been safe, s i rice the rioting began. The city is virtually controlled by i extremists of the Unionists and Na? tionalists, who probably number under? 500. They lire volleys down the streets j without warning and apparently with-? out reason, and the citizens are thus | put in a state of continuous panic, sallying forth only when the procure- : ment of food becomes absolutely necessary. Many shopkeepers have : suspended business and have taken: refuge on the top floors of their busi- ? ness premises for safety. Men who are compelled to be in i their offices sleep there lather than risk stepping into the streets. The ? postofhee force has been reduced to a : mete handful and the postmaster is! being petitioned by many ???' the work-! ers for relief from duty until the: trouble subsides. the military so far has confined its j cff< rts to keeping the two sides apart,; nut without great success.

They claimed that the question of mandates for these t? rritories was one for the League of .Vat tons. Premier Lloyd George, in his defense <?f the government, repudiated entirely the claim in behalf of the league.

It helped at a time when work was scarce and money scarcer. I am pleaded to ?note the lender en route to the White House." The name of the debtor was not revealed, but the best guess was that the dollar came from a tramp printer who had visit? ed "The Marion Star" when "broke.''

Turfman's List of 100 Women Found "Woman in Black" Says She Will Return Here at the Request of S wann If the story told by George A, Wal? ters, a negro taxicab driver, of 210 West 137th Street, is true, the authori? ties have found the man who was the last to see Joseph Bowne Elwell alive soon before the mysterious murder in . his home two weeks ago. Walters owns a machine with a fit? ful habit of stopping and starting, which he calls "bucking." He says he picked up the card wizard near the N'ew Amsterdam Theater on the morn? ing of the murder at about 2 o'clock. Hi- drove him to Sixty-sixth Street and Broadway, where, he said, he was or? dered to stop to permit his customer to buy a newspaper, and then" dropped El? well at his home, 244 West Seventieth St roer. The taxicab driver says he was able to identify his customer as Elwell through pictures that have appeared in the newspapers. He also remembered that Elwell had given him To cents for his fare. To Be Questioned To-day Assistant District Attorney Alfred ?T. Talley, in charge of the investiga? tion yesterday, says it is strange that. Walters should wait fourteen days be fore coming forward with the informa? tion, and wanted to know why he had not presented the facts to the District Attorney before. The taxicab driver will be interrogated to-day. This new development, if confirmed by the examination to-day. would seem tu indicate that Elwell, shortly after leaving the Lewisohn party in front of the Amsterdam Theater, about 1:45 a. m,, got into Walters'? taxi and went directly horn?'. It is not clear, how? ever, whether he rode home accom? panied or not. With the clearing Uf of these points all of the turfman's movements during the night preceding the murder and up to 2:30 o'clock of the fatal morning will have been fully accounted for. This, however, would point out no new trail to the authorities whereby thej might trace the murderer. They admit ted yesterday they were as far awaj from any clew to the criminal as thej were five minutes after the whist kin? was found ?lying in tiie reception roon of his home with a gunshot wound it his forehead. District Attorney Swann says it ma;, take months to unravel the mystery an? it may never be uncovered. Everybody in and about the house at the time o the murder, or even remotely connect?e wit)*, the slain man, is being questioned and so far not one fact has been hi upon that would point to any part?cula: person as the probable criminal. Miss Anderson to Return Some light is expected to be shed oi the case by Miss Elly Hope Anderson the guest of Victor von Schlegell oi the Kit/. Roof t!?e night preceding th? nun der. Mis- Anderson has been re ft rred to as the "girl in black" be cause she was attired in a black gowi ?m that night, when Elwell was als en th?* roof with another party, in chilling Mr. ami Mrs. Walter Lewisohn Miss Viola Kraus and Octavi Figueroa. Miss Kraus had just di voiced her husband, Von Schlegell, an had received her final decree that daj Miss Anderson had come from Minne apolis to study music and returned t her home en the morning of" the mur der. In reply to a telegram from Dis t ri et Attorney Swann requesting he to return mil answer certain question that miglif aid in solving the mysterj sTie is reported, in dispatches, to hav said that she would return at once an tell the authorities all she knows. Her latest statements differ some what from the stories she told whe her identity was at first disclosed. Sh had said that Von Schlegell drove he to her apartment, at ?17 Fast Sixty-firs Street and ?eft her there at about '. o'clock that night and that she.did i:c see him again before her departure fo the West, She now admits that sh breakfasted with him in hi* apar ar. about S o'clock on the morning c the murder.

Wilson Asks Rail Board for Quick Decision President Acts Alter Bcinij Told Strike Situation Will Be Much Worse When Awards Are Made Labor States Its Case Declares Appeals Have Been Made Repeatedly But No Results Gained From The Tribunes Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, June 23. President Wilson has sent a message to the Rail? road Labor Hoard in Chicago urging it to hasten its decision on the wage de? mands of railroad workers in an effort to check the spread of insurgent strikes, it was learned to-day. The text of the message was withheld. The President, acted after the situa? tion was put before him yesterday by John Barton Payne, Secretary of the Interior. Mr. Payne conferred again to-day with W, X. Doak, vice-president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Train? men. Doak later called at the White House, where, it is understood, he in? formed Secretary Tumulty that the strike situation is more menacing. Doak said the cause of unrest among the men and their refusal to work is the delay in adjusting their wages. Requests for increases, he said, have been pending for more than a year. Board Is Criticized Doak predicted that if there is not a settlement before the end of the week coii'litions would be much worse, and said that the only way transportation would be kept normal was for the men to receive substantial pay increases. He characterized as "a rank and hope? less failure" the method of adjusting disputes through the Railroad Labor Hoard, a tribunal created by the new transportation act, representing the public, workers and employers, but with no mandatory powers. "The organizations have already had to go to three different boards and none of them would meet the situa? tion," said Doak. "The present hoard has had the requests of the men for more than two -months, and at the time of its formation had already available all the data necessary to make an award, but instead of doing so is apparently wrangling over the same questions which had been passed on by the other boards. "The board has no reasonable or legitimate excu.e for not granting sub? stantial increases in wages to railroad employees, and there can be no escape, from the conclusion that the board, now sitting in Chicago, is wholly re? sponsible for the present bad situation. "The chiefs of the brotherhoods now are considering means to assist in every manner in bringing this situa tion to a speedy conclusion and start the wheels of transportation, but know full well that these men must first be given substantial increases in pay be? fore such can be accomplished. They 'nope to have a settlement by the end of the present week. If not*, the situa? tion probably will be much worse 'bar, at present. "Appeals have gone up from all parts ?if the country to the Labor Board to do something, and we desire 'he public to know that this much heralded and advocated method of ad? justing questions of this character, ac? cording to the present indication, is a rank and hopeless failure." l'nions Have Been Patient Secretary of Labor Wilson issued a statement, pointing out the ne(M for an early decision from the Labor Board, in which he said: "It is now more than a year since the railway brotherhoods took up with the railway management, the question of increasing wages to meet the cost of living. They have been extremely patient under manifold difficulties, and their officials have displayed a splendid courage and a high appreciation of the public welfare in their efforts to restrain the growing uneasiness of their membership due to the prolonged consideration of their demands without a decision b??ing arrived at. "If would be a great victory ?or the workmi n and for their official spokes? men if they continued to exercise the same patience and the same courage until the Railway Labor Hoard has reached a decision, which everybody hones ?ill be at an early date. The Railway Labor Board has had a big task to perform, yet it can render no better public service in the existing situation than by coming t?? a speedy determination of the questions at issue before it."

From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, June 23.?President I Wilson to-night pent a telegram to Governor A. II. Roberts of Tennessee | urging him to call a special session of the state Legislature to consider the proposed suffrage amendment to the Federal Constitution. Following is the telegram: "H would be a real service to the party and to the nation if it is pos? sible for you under the peculiar pro visions of your state constitution, hav? ing in mind the recent decision of the I Supreme Court in the Ohio case, to call a spi'cial session o? the Legis? lature of Tennessee to consider the i suffrage amendment.

The Ohio case, to which the Presi? dent refers, was the one in which it was held that state laws cannot inter? fere with the method of amending the Federal Constitution prescribed in Cue Constitution itself namely, by action of the state Legislature.
