TRAGEDY AT LORTON FEAR OF FURTHEE TROUBLE NOT EAT.TET. Body of Dead Man Identified - Local Police Aiding in Search for Information. Special Dispatch to The Evening Star. ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 10.-The visit of Baron 1(ayor des Planches, the Italian am bassador to the United States, to this city Saturday afternoon to make inquiries into the circumstances connected with the death of Joseph Leanto, the Italian subject who shot George A. Matcomb at Lorton. Fairfax county, last Thursday, is being discussed with deep interest in this city. The tragic affair at Lorton. resulting in two deaths, had attracted unusual attention and had caused grave apprehension of further trou ble. The fear that some of the friends of Leanto in the railroad camps. en'ertalning the opinion that their fellow countrymen had been unfairly dealt with, might seek means for summary revenge, gave the authorities in the vicinity of Lorton con siderable concern. This was shared in some measure by the police of this city by reason of the fact that hundreds of Italiaa laborers are employed on the railroad monstruc tion around Alexandria. In fac , a continu ous chain of construction camps extends from this city to the scene of the double tragedy in Fairfax. So far as is ascertained, nothing has oc curred up to the present to bear out the apprehension of the authorities. To his in quiries respecting the general reputation of the Italian laborers in this section of the country. Chief James F. Webster of the police force replied that it was good. Chief Webster informed the ambassador that only one Italian prisoner has been In the city jail in a long time. In answer to ques tions the chief also stated that laborers of tl'at nationality employed around Alexan dria are noted for their industry and at tention to business. While the Italian rep resentative made no specifle statement as to his mission to this city. Captain Webster said his purpose was clearly indicated by the line of his remarks and questions. He was apparently satisfied with the result of his visit, but Captain Webster made it clear that the local department, not hav ing jurisdiction over the scene of the af fair, could furnish only collateral facts. EXCITEMENT AT LORTON. Citizens Declare Leanto Was a Desper ate Man. Speelal Diepatch to The Evening Star. LORTOhi. Va., April 10.-The little com munity of Lorton, Fairfax county, is ex cited over the international sequel which the investigation here by the Italian em bassy in Washington has given to the tragic shooting of George A. Malcolm, a acputy sheriff and school teacher of this place, and Joseph Leanto, an Italian lab orer, near Lorton station last Thursday. The nervious tension which followed the first exchange of shots has continuedl in more or less degree, with a marked accentu ation over the action taken by the Italian representative to this country. Apprehen sion of further trouble, while expressed as the view of many citizens, Is gviig less concern than at first, but the people as a community are anxious to be fully relieved of any odium which might have attached to them as the result of published state ments attributing the death of the Italian to the work of an armed mob. Declarations made by the leading people of the place to a Star correspondent this afternoon are that Leanto came to his death while resisting arrest by the deputy sheriff and a lawfully deputized posse. The citizens court the fullest investigation. They believe the Italian representatives, unless misinformed, will be brought to the same conclusion, but it is a matter of com ment here that acting Consul Ravaloli, who came to Lorton Saturday evening from Alexandria, returned without receiving the statements of the residents who were par ticipants or eyewitnesses in the affair. So far as known here the consul had no con versation with any of the townspeople be yond asking the location of the home of Deputy Sheriff James Haislip, who was in charge of the posse. The consul, however, left on the evening train for Washington without seeeing the deputy sheriff. Mr. Springman's Statement. Mr. J. M. Springman. a merchant of this place who was a member of the posse, this afternoon gave a vivid recital of the trag edy. According to his account, the posse organized Friday morning about 8 o'clock. It consisted of himself. John Plaskett, sr., 'Lindsey Dawson, Peter Eimer, Maltby R. Bayliss, George Bayliss, A. W. Grimsley and R. I. Harrover, all prominent citizens. Going to the commissary department of H. M. Quigg & Co., where Leanto was em ployed, the posse secured possession of the Italian, who made no resistance. The latter asked permission to return to the commis sary department to fix up his accounts, which was granted, but when Leanto re mained in the car a half hour the posse .became impatient. Deputy Haislip and Messrs. Springman Plaskett- and Dawson entered the car to see what he was doing, he parleyed for more time and finding his be havior suspicious, Mr. Springman rushed upon him from the rear, seizing both arms. The Italian had time to draw a heavy re volver, with which he attempted to shoot over his hkead at Mr. Sprin.gman. A fear ful scuffle was on, in which the two men danced around the floor until Leanto ap parently thought he had a chance to hit his captor. The Italian fired, but the ball went crashing throengh his own brain. The two combatants had whirled around in a confusing scramble. One of the deputies took a shot at the Italian at a venture. the ball lodging in the abdomen. It was rot. however, until he had shot himself that Ieanto was overcome. Mr. Springman declared that the des perate character of the Italian was alone responsible for his death. No harsh meas ures were used, he said, until it became evident that Leanto had used the respite allowed hrim for arming himself to defy the officers. This statement was fully borne out by others acquainted with the facts. The idea of his death being suicidal was not entertained by the deputies. His con duct, they said, stamped him as a most dangerous man. Excitement over the affair is accom panied by a feeling of sympathy for young Malcolm, who enjoyed a high reptrtation in this county. His Courage Commended. -Malcolm's courage and solicitud, in the protection of his scholars is widely com mended, but it is said he erred in prudence in attempting to serve the warrant. It ap pears that Leanto, who knew Malcolm as a school teacher, questioned his rigiht to serve the warrant. Before making the at tempt Malcolm had driven Leanto away from the Lorton valley school house, where his alleged insulting conduct toward some of the girl students had been reported to the teacher. The funeral of the unfortunate young man occurred yesterday afternoon from Old Pohick Church. near Lorton; Rev. Everard Meade, the rector, conducting the Iservices. The unusually large attendance of peopl, from all over the county attested the popularity of the young man and the general sorrow in Fairfax over the tragedy. The remains were interred in Pohick ceme. tory. There were not wanting representa tive people here who fully believed that Leanto was suffering from temporary mania when he received bis mortal wound. He had been a forese here fer Qnlgg & Co. -only a short. tim but lis pee.li.* ges tions had been eo.meumteupon by the peo ple of -the town.

Boardman yesterday received information that the body of the dead Italian was probably that of Gula seppe Ladini. Today, however, the bodl was identified as being that of Joseph Sllattine, twenty-two years old, who was recently before the Police Court on charges of assault and carrying a pistol. The Iden tification was made by Robert E. Gilchrilst. colored, who was bondsman for the man who was before the Police Court. On the several records the man's name appears spelled in several ways. ie was arrested last month by Policeman Peter McGraw of the sixth precinct on complaint of Balva dore Demma and his wife. Charges were preferred against him and Attorney Camp bell Carrington appeared as his counsel when the case was called for trial. Jury trials were demanded In the cases, and the hearings would probably have taken place next week. When Gilchrist went to the morgue this morning he told the superin tendent that the man on whose bond he had gone had p scar on his forehead. There was a bandage on the forehead of the corpse, and when this was removed the scar was revealed. The body is still at the morgue. No Italian has been near there to view the remains, and they will soon be disposed of according to law un less friends of the dead man claim them.

Are There So Many of UsP From the Providence Journal. How many people are there in the world? This old, always interesting and never con clusively answered question comes up again on the announcement by the Antwerp bu reau of statistics that its investigations have led to the belief that the total popu lation of the earth is 1,&i2,303,000 and that the increase during the' present year will be approximately 24,703i,000. The figures are rather high, compared with the common es timates. but they may be as near as any other to correctness. For many countries, including most of those that have the largest populations, no estimate can be more than guesswork, because they have no census. There is none in China, for in-, stance, which is supposed to be the home of about a quarter of the human race, and no accurate enumeration in India, which must contain at least half as many inhab itants. The same is true of nearly the whole continent of Africa. and South American population statistics are noto riously inaccurate. It is possible that there may be as many people in the world as the Antwerp statisticians compute. But we cannot be sure; neither, certainly, can we disprove their figures. English the World Language. From the New York lndepesdent. English is an international language. The negotiations between the Russiansa and Jap anese for the surrender of Port Arthur were conducted, not in French. but in English. The Japanese generals who took part and their .associates talk English, andi one of them Russian. On the Russian side they brought a young midshipman, who had to act as Interpreter, because the English of the officers was Imperfect. In Russia and Turkey the officia still prefer to use French, but the rest of the 1world, in the east as well as the west, turns to English. Tailor Owned the Mouse. Fromn the New York usa.
