GOMEZ MAY RESIGN Government Will Not Sur vive 72 Hours Is the Prediction. JIOIJE F1UIITS ARE FEARED Mliernls and Conservatives Roth i'ledii't Trouble nt Election, November 1. Special Cable tletpatch to The Six, IUva.va, Oct. 25. One man was killed mid more than twenty wounded, two of them fatally, In a fight In Central i'.-irk, In the heart of Havana, that fol lowed a political meeting here early this morning. The university medical students had meeting this afternoon which broke up In a light. A negro was shot and severely wounded. The bitter feeling aroused makes It certain that there will be fighting nil through the city on November 1 when the election for President and Vice- 'resident of the republic is held. High Government olllclals this after noon expressed the belief that the Gov ernment will not survive for seventy two hours. It Is rumored that President Gomez will resign. The Liberals held a meeting Inst night In the park and on the sidewalk of the Hiuare In front of the lnglatcrra and Telgrefo hotels, which are the main ktrongholds of the Conservatives, who vt the same time held a meeting at Jesus Delmonto, a Liberal stronghold on the outskirts of the city. Crowds which numbered from 25,000 to 30,000 attended each meeting. The Liberal pro (colons were made up chtetly of ne groes of the lowest classes, who marched lo the music of an African tomtom and danced the obscene Congo danco known ap the "Rumba." There were only slight disturbances up to 12:30 this morning, when thu Con koivatlves on returning to town were attacked by the Liberals. It Is Imiiosslble to determino who fired the first shot, but It seems probable that It was a negro by the name of Acea, u man with a long criminal record whom President Gomez pardoned when the rlmlnal was serving a ninety-eight year ten tuner. The firing quickly became general. Altogether more than a thousand shots were fired, although the police seem:d to tire chiefly In the air. The walls and windows of the lnglatcrra Hotel were marked with many bullet holes. From there the firing extended across the park, then down the Prado and a parallel street. In the first block down the Prado from the park occurred the fiercest fighting. One side of the street la the headquarters of Gov. Asbert, who deserted the Liberals to become Gen. Mcnocal's running mate on the Con- ervatlve ticket. On the other side of the street are the offices of the Liberal organs, I. a Opinion and L'Ultima llora Here hundreds of shots were fired from the street and the newspaper offices at the Asbert Club, members of which re plied from the second story and bal cony. Many bullets struck the Ameri can Club, a little lower down and across Iht street. ' The police were absolutely helpless to stop the rioting until the rurales ar med and charged tho crowd through a rop tire, using tho flat part of their maolietcs. The rurales charged down the promenade which runs between tint ITado's two driveways, their hidden Kkmnlrig In tho electric lights. Shots were coming from all directions and hows were falling dead or wounded In tie Mt'ei'l ,'tnrl thin crnvo nil thp nittutnp.. ncf cit the liveliest kind of a battle. 'Mio horse, which wbh shot, went down and, Jumping up without his rider, piiinued hli way through tho crowd. Another horse was allot dead and his rider. Lieut, Ortiz of the rurales, re ceived a wound In the forearm. s conn at the shooting ended Chief of Police Agulrro raided tho Asbert t'lub anil arrested everybody iprcsc'nt. There were forty men there and they had exhausted their ammunition. The Conservatives regard this action of the police nx marked discrimination, as no arrests were made In the opposite bulld lns occupied by tho Liberals, from which a heavy tiro was poured Into the Ubert Club. The Indignant Conserva tives spent tho morning trying to secure 'he relen.'ie of tho men arrested at their i ml., declaring that If they were not all allowed to go they would take them "ii b force. They were all released this afternoon. There was a stormy meeting this af ei noon between Gen. Menocal, the conservative candidate for President; fliw im'ir icuuers, wiwi "redden! Gomez.

It la expected that Chief Mrulrre will resign as a consequence of 'n appointment of a supervisor, which o deeply reflects on his conduct of tho pollre Kenor Kerrarj, the Speaker of tho ftmiac of Itepresentatlves, this after noon said that the Government's actions t serving simply morn to excite popu r frr lings, and unless tho Government Minorities take, energetic measures wiere will be no election af all. II ys that this morning's battle Is th "'eursnr of more serious conflicts. The Mcnocallsts declare that they have alt tho six provinces won If the elections are fair and thnt tho Zaylstas In despair are trying to steal the elec tions by violence and Intimidation, which they (thr Menocnllstas) trill not enduro. Vhey declare that while they will not provoke any trouble they will retaliate to every aggression and are prepared for any amount of bloodshed. A notablu fact Is that many of those who were arrested for participation In tho battle carried new pistols which were of the regulation police .44 calibre Colt guns. If the elections occur and Gen. Meno cal Is elected, a Government official said, peace may follow, as the Zaylstas fear the United States Government sup port of Gen. Menocal, with whom la alao Gen. Montcngudo with his armed forces. If Zoyas Is elected, ho said, troublo is certain, as the whole of the better element Is tired of the wholesale stealing which hus marked the Liberal administration and which has bank rupted the treasury. Military supervisors of the police have also been appointed In Cienfuegos, Colon and other Important towns. The rurales uro ready to take charge of Havana at nny minute. The air Is surcharged, but there probably will be no serious out break until to-morrow night, when the Liberals and tho Conservatives will re peat their monster meetings. Scnor Snngully has cabled to Wash ington an absurdly belittling account of the disturbance. Tho Menocnllstas for the moment are satisfied with the appointment of Col. Pujol as the supervisor of the police, thus nullifying Chief Agulrre, who Is so rabidly opposed to tho Conservatives. Incidentally Agulrre Is the brother-in-law of Senor Kerrara, the Speaker of the House. AVIATOR'S DEVICE SAVES HIM. W. I. Tuouiler'a Airship rails, bat . lie Karaites Injury. An Invention of W. Irving Twomley, amateur aviator, probably saved his life in an aeroplane accident at the Hemp stead Plains Aviation Field yesterday. lly means of the Invention the avi ator was able to retain his seat In tho machine until It was close to the ground and then he Jumped, escaping with a slinking up. Twomley's invention consists of a se ries of straps passing over his shoul ders, concentrating In a disc (directly In front of his chest and held there by a pin which prevents the aviator from falling from his seat. Twomley was up seventy-five feet and the machine started to rapidly de scend when his engine went dead. The straps held him In his scat and he re leased the pla as he neared the ground and then Jumped clear of tho machine, which was wrecked as It struok the ground. Twomley qualified for an aviator's license July 19 and was making his first flight since then. He is a member of the Aero Club and Is president of the His wife saw the accident. KENL0N SAVES LOT OF DRINKS. Ilranily, Whiskey and Uln Escape Tongue of Factor? Fire. Chief Kenlon called out a big fores of lire lighters lint night when flames spread from the fifth story windows of tho seven" story factory building at 481 and 483 Washington street, one door north of Canal street.

The Loewenthal Company, dealers In rubber scrans. occupies the first six stories of the building. The top floor Is used by the Miller, Tompkins Com pany, maker of paper bags. After an hour's work the firemen suc ceeded In confining the blaze to the three upper floors of the building In which It started and to the top floor of 487, also occupied by the paper bag company. The damage to the latter building was slight. Paul Loewenthal said the damage would amount to about $50,000. MANIAC THREATENED EDISON. Jt mi Sent to Asylum for Sending I n tcntor Many Letters. Baltimore, Oct. 25. A man giving tho name of Harry Mitchell was arrested this afternoon and Is believed by Chief of Police Far nan to be a dangerous maniac. He Is charged with sending threatening letters to Thomas A. Kdlson. For neernl months Mr. Edison has been nnnoyed by letters from a man signing himself Harry Mitchell. Tho letters were mailed from various parts of the country, and the writer In variably demanded large sums of money under threat of death. Mr, Edison put the matter In tho hands of the postal authorities, who, after Investigating, de. clarcd that the writer of the letters must be of unsound mind.

ARMED GUARD PORROOSEVELT Friends Afraid Cranks Will Attempt His Life at Oyster Bay. EX-CONVICT FEARED Colombian, Qnce in Danne mora, Sought Him in Chlr cago and May Follow. ONE APPEAHED YESTERDAY Effort Made to Get White' House Agent Who Pro tected Colonel. OrsTEn Hay, N. T Oct. 25. Uecent threats and the reported presence of a crank In the neighborhood will effect a change In the free and easy outdoor llfo which Col. xItoosevelt hoped to take up again. When he Is able to leave yie nous, as he Is expected to do In a day or two, he will be accompanied on every occa sion by u bodyguard, who will be on duty throughout the rest of the cam paign. An effort will bo made to get Frank Tyree, the United States Mar shal from West Virginia, who was a former secret service man and the Colo nel's personal bodyguard during his oc cupancy of the White House. Warnings have been received from several quarters that a man, who Is be lieved to have attempted to force his way Into Mercy Hospital In Chicago, would try to reach Col. Ilooscvelt here. In Chicago the man declared he came from Colombia, and rolled against the ex-Presldcnt for his connection with the acquisition of the Panama Canal Zone. When he was denied entrance at Mercy Hospital he Is said to have ex hibited a railway ticket with the threat that he would follow the Colonel to New York. Dr. George W. Faller, who lives In Oyster Bay and has been attending Col. Roosevelt, received a" letter from John A. Waldron, appointment clerk for the Board of Prison Commissioners, at Al bany to-day, containing a newspaper clipping of a despatch dated Plattsburg. N.X. October 24. Kblcb-dejcribed la. de tail the record of a prisoner in Clinton prison, Dannemora, who was a Colom bian. In June, 1906, tho prison officials Intercepted a letter In Spanish from this man which contained threats against Col. Hoosevelt and declared ho had com mitted a crime against Colombia. Noth ing had been heard of him since his re lease. The clipping expresses the opin ion that this Is the same Individual who created the disturbance In Chicago. "This article was called to the atten tion of Col. Scott, superintendent of State prisons," said Mr. Waldron. "It seemed to me that the matter was of ut most Importance and that I ought to send him the newspaper article so that he could take the necessary steps. "This man was pardoned by Gov. Hlg- gins In June, 1S06. Upon the Governor's learning of the statement which had been made by the prisoner In this let ter he revoked the pardon and the man was compelled to serve his entire term, less tho commutation he earned In the Clinton prison." Emphasis was added to the uneasi ness felt by the Colonel's friends on the score of possible Injury from cranks by the appearance on the hill to-day of an unidentified man who attempted to ef feet an entrance to the house. He pen cilled a note to the Colonel before he could bo prsuadd to toko his departure. Its rambling, incohrent character ut tested the condition of the man's mind. He Is described as a paranoiac, very tall and powerful and equal to proving himself a dangerous antagonist should he encounter the Colonel upon one of his solitary excursions on foot. Ho wears a sombrero hat. No one In the village could explain his presence. Col. Roosevelt'B Improvement to-day was even more marked than yesterday. He proved that he was almost ready to get back Into his old stride by turning out a full day's work without showing the slightest ill effects. He began the day with the announce ment that his headquarters here would be the source of all his campaign state ments. His two secretaries were on hand early. After disposing of some of his moat urgent letters he took up his Madl son Square Garden speech and dictated until luncheon, which he had with Frank A. Munsey, George W. Perkins and William H. Hotchklss, Who motored out for a long conference. In the after noon he met his physicians. Between times he managed to sandwich In a careful reading of Morgan's "Zoology.' Drs. Lambert, Brewer and Faller gave out this statement to-night: , "Col. Itoosevelt Is In good condition and the wound Is progressing favorably, but he will not be able to work or re ceive visitors for some days. Unless some unforeseen complication should arise he will be able to speak for twenty or thirty minutes on Wednesday night, but he must return to Oyster Bay and not attempt to campaign."

To I'rosernte au F.dltor Wlto Printed "He (iris Drank." Col. Roosevelt has started criminal ml civil libel suits in the Circuit Court at Marquette, Mich., against George A. Newett of Islipemlng, Mich., publisher of a weekly newspaper, Iron Ore, accord ing to a statement put forth by Na tional Progressive headquarters yester day. It Is alleged that in Iron Ore on Octo ber 12 there was an article headed "The Itoosevelt Way," which Included this paragraph: 'Itoosevelt lies and curses In a most disgusting way. Ho gets drunk, too, and that not infrequently, ana an nis inti mates know about It." The suits nro thus explained In the Progressive statement: It has been well known to Col. Rooae- velt and his friends for a long time that his opponents were conducting an Insid ious campaign of slander against him and seeking by Innuendo and covert sugges tion to create the Impression throughout the country that he Is a heavy drinker and that he Is frequently Intoxicated. No re spectable porson of responsibility, so far as he Is known to Col. Itoosevelt and his friends, has dared to make this charge In an open nnd responsible way until Mr. Newett made It In his newspaper. Col. Itoosevelt has always been loath to give any recognition to this slander or to take any poslttvo action about It. Borne weeks ago, however. It was presented to him In such a light that ho decided to give some recognition to It, and he then wrote the letter In which he dlscloaed fully his habit regarding all beverages and said that he drank about as much as Or. Lyman Abbott. The publication of the libel In the Ih- pemlng Iron Ore Is the first case that has come to the notice of Col. Itoosevelt or his friends of such utteranco of this libel by a retpomlble Individual. Prosecution Immediately follows. Judge James II. Pound of Detroit has been retained as counsel for Col. Itoosevelt. Col. Itoosevelt Is not seeking to recover money damages, and the amount asked In the civil suit In therefore fixed at the nominal sum of $5,000. There Is no hope of bringing either of these cases to trial before election. The esses aro not undertaken for any such purpose or with any such expectation. GOES UP 500 FEET TOES FIRST.

TO END MILITIA QUA Kit EL Major-GcncrAl Reduced to Su pernumerary, but His Aids Arc Retained. Ai.bant, Oot. 25. Gov. Dix abolished the office of Major OenoralJohn F. O'Ryan as commander of the National Guard to day and mado him a supernumerary. Dy this action whatever power remained with Major Gen. O'Ryan goes to Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck by virtue of his ofllco ns colef of staff, as well as Adjutant-General. At the same time Gov. Dix made all of the members of Major-Gen. O'Hyan's staff supernumeraries and in another order placed them on active duty afjain and as signed them to the hoadquarters of the militia until further orders, with two ex ceptions. These exception are Lieut. -Col. It. Foster Walton, who has been on duty in New York city a Adjutant-General, and Capt. .Edward Olmsted, who has been Major-Gen. O'Ryan's personal aid. These two officers are permitted to re main on the supernumerary list. Tlie Lieutenant-ColoneU or Gen. O'Ryan's staff who will become tho staff of Ad jt.-Gen.Verbock as chief of stair are: Chauncey P. Williams, Adjutant-General's department. FranxJln W. Ward, Adjutant-General's department. William H. Cliapin, Inspector-General's department. . Cornelius Vonderbllt, Inspector-Gen eral's department. Louis V.Htotesbury.Inspector-Gencral's department. William' W.

Ron wan brought into tho guard in command. When Gen. lloo retired under the age limit lost May ho was suc ceeded by Major-Gen. O'Ryan, who shortly afterward endeavored to draw tho pay of a major-general, $8,000 a year, notwith standing the fact that Gen, Roe had served without pay. Neither Oov. Dix. who was in Europe at the time, nor Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck ap proved what they termed thin "salary grab." Turmoil in the National Guard dated from this moment and many petty diflerencets resulted between Major-Gen. O'Ryan's headquarters in Now York city and the Adjutant-General's headquarters in Albany. Things became so snarled that Attornoy- General t'armody was asked to define the duties of the Major-Genera! and the Adjutant-General. Rut still the bickering continued and Gov. Dix saw that Major Gen. O'Ryan did not get his salary. Gov. Dix issued an order about three weeks ago creating the o!l!ce of Chief of Staff for the National Guard and assigned Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck to the post, while con tinuing him as Adjutant-General. Tlie effect of this was to transfer nearly all of Major-Gen. O'Ryan'n admlnintrative authority lo Adjt.-Gen. Verbeok us Chief of Htaff, To-day's orders complete Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck 's full authority in guard matters, subject only to the orders of Gov. Dix . Shortly after the order creating tho office of Chief of StalT was Issued Gen. O'Ryan came to Albany and had a talk with Gov. Dix and Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck, and tho Governor told Gen. O'Ryan that his authority was confined to supervision of the troops in tho field. Gov. Dix thought Gen. O'Ryan accepted this situa tion. Gen. O'Ryan, it Is said, summoned the commanders of National Guard organiza tlons to a conference in New York city and there have been staterrrents that at this conference recent ordors affecting the National Guard were severely critl cised. Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck refused to discuss them, except to say that the officer involved had violated the regula tions. At this point Gov. Dix stepped in and issued tho present order, with a view of stopping all bickerings in the guard by leaving Adjt.-Gen. Verbeck in full control. Gov, Dix was asked what the signifi cance of the two orders was. "Draw your own conclusions," he said 'There has been ao muoh turmoil in the guard that theae orders were madeneces sary." "Is it a fair question to ask whether or not these orders eliminate Major-Gen O'Ryan? "You may draw your own Inferences," the Governor replied. BERRIES IN NEW ROCHE LLE.

WHITFA' LEWIS TRIAL NEXT Confession by Ono of Gunmen Expected (lyp's Wife Said to Urge Hi in. Lieut. Becker, under sentence ot death, will await In Sing Sing prison the decision of the Court of Appeals as to whether or not he Is entitled to a new trial. No action by counsel can prevent sentence being pronounced by Justice Qoff next Wednesday, but tho appeal will act as a stay ot execution. liecker's chief counsel, John F. Mc lntyre, whose fight persisted until tin words that pronounced Decker tho real murderer of Herman Rosenthal wen uttered, seemed confident yesterday that out of more than 4,000 exceptions ho had taken to the rulings of Justice Goft sufficient grouhds would be found to justify the ordering of a new trial by the highest court in the State. Whllo District Attorney Whitman and of courso Justice Qoff would not discuss tho forthcoming appeal or thu merits of such points of law and evi dence as aro objected to by tho licckcr lawyers, It is known that they feci that Decker had a fair trial and siiat if any thing the main contentions wcro decided In his favor. These wero tho questions as to whether or not the graft evidence should be put before tho Jury mid whether or not Bhaplro should bo al lowed to tell that he had heard oua of tho gunmen say to another that "Becker has tho cops fixed and It will be a clear getaway." Charge Aid to State. It Is generally recognized that tlio effect of Justice doffs charge to th Jury' was" a powerful aid' to 'Uio State's case, but it Is pointed out that a Judga has a great latitude In surveying thy evidence provided he Is accurate In quoting from testimony. The jurors, faithful to Justice God's admonition not to discuss tho proceed ings In tho Jury room, havo said noth ing directly aa to tho effect on them ot tho charge, but It transpired yester day that when they sat down to delib erate they had made up their minds that Jack Roso told the truth and that thero was enough of circumstantial evidence without taking Sam Schcpp'a story Into consideration to corroborate Rose's accusations against Becker. It may be a blow to tho vanity of Schcpps,, but tho truth seems to bo that he was not such a "keystone of tho State's ase" after all, and that the District Attorney could have got a conviction without htm. With the Becker trial out of the way tho attitude of the gunmen and tire plans of the District Attorney regard ing them become of the first Impor tance. Becker's conviction shook their Uellance and made them realize that they are not as safe as they thought they were. The situation of the gunmen Is fur ther Imperilled by Shapiro, chauffeur of the murder cur. It was learned yester day that Shapiro has made up his mind to Identify Gyp, Lefty, Dago Frank and Whltey Lewis as the four he took from Webber's gambling house to tho Metro pole arid whom he drove away after tha murder. There were positive efforts in their behalf yesterday to ascertain If tho District Attorney will make any sort of terms with them. Charles G. K Wahle, counsel for Gyp tho Blood, Lefty Louie, Whltey Lewis and Dago Frank, called on Mr, Whitman. It was taken as a fact that Wahle wanted to know what sort of a proposition ttm District Attorney would make, nnd that ho was told that If tho gunmen had anything to say to tho prosecutor they could say It, but that tho District At torney would decline to communicate with them until they had volunteered the whole truth about the murder. Whiter l.cnli't Trial First. One of tho gunmin, probably Whltey Lewis, whoso real namo 1b Frank Mul ler, will be tried immediately after the case of Red Phil Davidson, who mur dered Big Jack Zcltg, is concluded. A commission of alienists yesterday pro nounced Davidson sane. Ho will be placed on trial next Wednesday. Tha' District Attorney wilt request Justice Ooff to try either Whltey Lewis or Lefty Louto on Thursday, November 7. It would be no great surprise to the District Attorney's staff If one of tho gunmen made a confession. The llkell- hood of a confession was Increased by the conviction of Becker. The wifo ot Lefty Louie Rosenberg has been active In urging him to tell the truth and take his chance with the prosecutor. The District Attorney is not greatly con cerned as to whether or not he gets a confession, because all of the gunmen have been Identified and the case against eaoh one of them is stronger in direct evidence than, was tha case against Becker. The machinery which must be put In motion in order to get an appeal In Lieut. Becker's case and the main points on which the appeal will be based were described yesterday by Mr. Mclntyre. Becker's chief counsel oamo out of the trial lit and weary. Heart trouble had developed and Mr. Mclntyre was under a terriflo strain while making his closing argument to the Jury. He wai worried besides by threats that have been sent him through the malls. H la Ja fact so muck- conctraed over these ItfsaUa that to ks obtained a persstt to w1
