Two Alleged Slayers Are Held Without Bail. RESULT OF CUTTING AFFRAY All Parties Are Negroes?New Coun cil Takes Office Tomorrow. Schools Open Friday. Special CorropondeDoe of The Star. ALEXANDRIA, Va., September 2, 191Z Jolm Bell and William Massie, both colored, charged with the murder of Wil liam Ferguson, colored, and also charged with the stabbing of Robert Ferguson, brother of the dead man, which occurred Saturday night last, who were arrested yesterday afternoon by Policeman Reid, were in the police court this morning and were committed to jail until Septem ber 10, next, when they will be given a preliminary hearing. The two prisoners were remanded without bail. A coroner's Jury which was impaneled at 10 o'clock yesterday morning met at Demalne's undertaking chapel and view ed the body of Ferguson and was ad journed over. A call for the Jury to re assemble at 10 o'clock Wednesday morn ing was Issued today by the coroner. The jury Is composed of the following: A. S. Doniphan, James B. Martin, Charles S. Adams, Harry H. Newton. John Mc Cuen and J. E. Legg. The arrest of Massie was made first by Policeman Meade. He was taken in custody at the farm of Howard Wllker son. Fairfax county, below this city, where he is employed as a farm hand. He told the officer where Bell could be found, and Policeman Reid upon reaching this city went to a house in South Alfred street between Duke and Wolfe streets and took in custody Bell.

Is rapidly recovering from his injuries, and it Is expected that he will be able to leave the hospital Wednesday and testify before the coroners jury. The police have in their possession two razor? which were found a short time after the murder. One was found in Market alley, where the stabbing took place, and the other was found near where William Ferguson dropped on Royal street, after being cut. Massie Exonerated. John Bell admitted cutting both of the men and he completely exonerates Massie | from all blame. His plea will be self-de fense. According to a statement made by Bell to a correspondent for The Star, he j met the two Ferguson brothers a few minutes after 10 o'clock Saturday night In Market alley, and both, with a curse, remarked, "Let s kill him." He says that William Ferguson had a razor In his hand and Robert Ferguson had a | pair of brass knuckles in his possession, and, with the remark mentioned above, both men jumped upon him. William Fer guson slashing his coat with the razor. He exhibited a slash In his coat to verify his statement. At this point of the pro ceedings he claims that he whipped out his big pocket knife and went to work with it on the two brothers. Bell says that William Ferguson had been going with his wife, although he I never had any trouble with him about this matter. He also claims that Massie had no part in the affair. Massie stated that he was standing among a crowd in the alley at the time. He just came out of a nearby saloon, i W illiam Ferguson, the dead mail, he says, struck him and he inquired why he struck him, whereupon the scrimmage between the Fergusons and Bell followed, i He denies emphatically that he took any part in the cutting of the two men. vvhen the case was called in court this morning the little courtroom was packed i to suffocation with a crowd, all of whom were apparently anxious to hear the details of the case and get a glimpse i of the prisoners. Most of those in the courtroom were colored. City council will be formally Inducted Into office at noon tomorrow. With the induction of council into office Mayor T. A.

MANY PRISONERS UP IN POLICE COURT TODAY Both Branches Busy With Usual Holiday Crowd of Offenders. Labor day was marked in the Police Court by a large parade of prisoners In both branches. Both Judge Mullowny and Judge Aukam opened court an hour earlier than usual in anticipation of the heavy Court due to Saturday, Sunday and a holiday coming in succession. The collateral list in the District branch of the court, where Judge Mullowny was sitting, numbered eighty-three persons. Upstairs, in the United States branch of the court, the names of fourteen who had put up collateral for their appear ance In court were called, but only one of them appeared before Judge Aukami to be tried. In Judge Mullowny*s court several of the "old timers" were up for drunkenness and disorderly conduct, and drew fines varying from $2 to $10. Most of them were unable to pay. and will board the "special" for Occoquan this afternoon. Two men were charged with habitual drunkenness. One was put on probation, and the other was sent down for a good stretch to straighten up. One man for feited $50 for carrying concealed weap ons, four were fined for breaking the speed law and seventeen for various vio lations of the police regulations. One case of an alleged unlicensed bar was continued until tomorrow, one vagrant went down for sixty day and three other offenders were fined for various Infractions of the' law. The prize charge was that against George Murat. He was charged with permitting his motor cycle to emit "prolonged, in tense, noxious, undue and unnecessary smoke on the public highway." When the clerk read the charge it sounded almost as bad as murder, but Judge Mullowny determined the penalty to be a tine of ?!. There were only three cases out of the ordinary in the upstairs court. Octavlus Coates was charged with embezzling some money from the Merchants' Transfer and Storage Company, and Raymond Murphy was charged with breaking Into the house of Maggie Coster and stealing some of her property. Both cases were continued until September 5 because some of the witnesses were not present. Rose Curry, a negro woman, was held In $500 bond for the action of the grand jury on a charge of breaking into a store owned by Hyman Berliner, at 2fC5 M street north west, and removing a ham. valued at $1.50 acd a bottle of cream valued at 70 cents. She had no defense except that she was hungry. Besides the thirteen who forfeited bail in the United States branch of the court, six men and one woman appeared to answer charges of assault. The highest fine drawn was $30, in default of which Wil liam H. Carter will have to go down the river for ninety days. One of the cases was continued until tomorrow, one man was released on his personal bond, and the rest were fined $10- each. There were sev eral petit larceny cases, two of which were dismissed because of lack of prose cution. In spite of the heavy business, the United States branch disposed of all .the cases before 11 o'clock, and the District of Columbia branch was adjourned about 11:15 o'clock. Had a larger number of those who were out on collateral appeared to answer the charges against them, it is probable that the District of Columbia branch would have been in session until well after noon. COL. PIERCE DEAD. House's Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms to Be Buried in Arlington. Funeral services for Col. Edwin Sheldon Pierce, for fifteen years assistant ser geant-at-arms of the House of Represen tatives, who died Saturday, will be held from Wright's chapel tomorrow after noon.

DROUTH RUINS CROPS. Bottom Lands Only Productive Soil in Lynchburg Section. LYNCHBURG, Va., September 2.?Ex cepting bottom land crops the drouth in this section has practically ruined the corn crop, and the yield in many places will be practically nothing. Much tobacco has burned in the field, but early rains would be of benefit to late planting, and might make half a crop. Pastures have been ruined, and some sections near Lynchburg report the water supply in small streams is diminishing rapidly. Generally, in the counties contiguous to Lynchburg the rain has been very alight for six weeks, though a few small sections have been seasonable. As a whole the farmers, having lost their wheat crop, wiH have meager re turns from corn, with little prospect for half a tobacco crop. All are anxious over the situation. iiiiiriinnmiinnimiiiiuMnnnininiuiimuminjiiiiitiniiillummiinuniumum 8th <& Shepherd Sts. N.W. S. E. Corner. First Time Offered.

I LABOR HALTS PARADE Carpenters Balk at Arch Bgilt by Non-Unionists. NEAR-RIOT AT CUMBERLAND Opening of Home-Coming- Week Marked by Scene of Disorder. VISITORS THRONG THE CITY Racing and Aviation to Be Features Remainder of the Week. Program Tomorrow. Special Dispatch to The Star. CUMBERLAND, Md., September 2. A bitter and most threatening demon stration made here by the Carpenters' Union broke up the Labor day parade in great confusion. The carpenters refused to march under the great tMple white arch, erected by Thomas Footer, million aire dyer and cleaner and largest em ployer of labor in Cumberland. The streets were jammed with people and there was a near riot. Following the carpenters, the plasterers bolted and then the rest turned back, the police being powerless to make them move on. The city is crowded with strangers, but there were few who realized what was go ing on. The carpenters struck here some time ago for an eight-hour day. The strike was broken by the importation of non union labor. The arch was erected by a non-union contractor, but, it k} claimed, the contract was open and none of the union men would undertake the job. Then Contractor Winterberg, who keeps an open shop, built it. Mr. Footer's friends contend that the union men had a chance at the job, but were afraid to undertake it. The action of the car penters caused much comment, and it is feared the demonstration may put a .damper on home-coming festivities. Many leading citizens took a decided stand against the action of the carpen ters and openly denounced it. Line of March Blocked. After the marchers refused to pass under the arch, which is located at Baltimore and Center streets, the main thoroughfares, they halted about ten minutes, making a demonstration, which a number applauded. The plas terers, who followed in a float, switch ed their vehicles straight across the street, completely blocking it. All sorts of threats for a time made no impression, and it was only after Chief of Police Irvine and a number of offi cers took a hand that the plasterers were dislodged, but they were able to keep back the rest of the parade, which in fragmentary shape, marched down a side street, and thus got around the arch. The first division went through with out protest. In it marched the glass workers and the bakers. The carpen ters formed the second division. They carried many placards. Some of them read "No Scabs Here. "No Open Shop for Us." "There Is a Strike and We Are Going to Win." The parade was in four divisions. The carpenter local here claimed a membership of 190. Labor n as given the honorv of opening' home coming week with a mammoth pa rade. The sons of toil, with waving ban ners, were to march through streets never before so crowded, for ^Cumberland is en tertaining the greatest number of visitors in its history. Elaborate decorations gave tone to the picture. For miles the streets are a mass of color, the decoration being on a scale of elaboration never before at tempted here. All-Day Picnic. An all-day picnic is being held at Nar rows Park. Addresses were made by Representative David J. Lewis of the sixth Maryland district, who told of the advantages of his parcels post scheme, and by State Senator Fred N. Zlthlman. The decorations for the big week are the admiration of the stranger. At the head and at the foot of Baltimore street, the main thoroughfare, are signs in bold letters spelling "Welcome." These signs, which are illuminated, <atch all comers from either railway station. Some of the business buildings were a maze of lights last night When the illumination was turned on at 8:30 o'clock the streets were almost impassable. It is estimated that there were 15,000 people on Balti more and Center streets. As the lights went on there was great applause. There was a complete suspension of business today, and all had a holiday. The excursions do not start until tomor row. Racing a Daily Feature. A daily feature is presented by the run ning races at the Cumberland Fairground track. Some\ of the best horses in the country have been entered, and two ex cursion trains are run dally to the track from Central station. The book making is in charge of A1 Herford of Baltimore. The races are under the auspices of the Cumberland Jockey Club, composed large ly of the members of the executive com mittee of the home-coming celebration. The sum of $15,000 was raised to secure the races, and horses from as far north as Canada and as far south as Kentucky have been entered. The races are a great afternoon diversion Aviator Freeman gave a flight this morning from Johnson's hill, an emi nence overlooking: the city. The rise of the machine from the ground can be seen from any point. Two fligrhts will be made dally with a biplane during the week. The second fligrht takes place immediately after the races. Another attraction in connection with the week's celebration is the pure food show in the Cumberland city hall. It is an elaborate display and was arranged by the United Commercial Travelers of Cum berland. A carnival of fourteen shows, owned by Moss Bros., has pitched tents on Com merce street. The city council voted to close Commerce, George and Ann streets for the use of the carnival. The streets are filled with concessionaries. Much more freedom is allowed than usual, yet fifty men are added to the police force to protect the public. It is known that a number of pickpockets and crooks are in the city, as well as individuals whose game is to pass counterfeit money-' Sat urday last at Frostburg much counter feit money was put into circulation. A number of detectives have been brought here and the Baltimore and Ohio and Western Maryland railway special serv ice has been brought into use to keep down crooked work. Concerts Each Evening. The German Arion Band of "Frostburg, a crack organization of forty pieces, has been engaged to give nightly concerts. In all sections of the city there will be concerts nightly by different organiza tions. The police have published warning against the use of "ticklers" and "wife beaters" and against the pratcice of throwing talcum powder and flour. Tomorrow will be Children's day and Military day. The children of public and parochial schools will parade in the morning. At noon will be the military pageant, in which will appear a battal ion composed of the Westminster. Ha gerstown, Cumberland and Frederick companies. There will also be numerous seml-milltary organizations in line. There will be parades daily. Wednesday will be given to the firemen, Thursday to the fraternal orders, Friday to the busi ness men, who will give a trades' dis play, and Saturday to the Mardi Gras. Thursday will also be Tag day, the pro ceeds to Ve used toward the construction of a tuberculosis sanatorium for Alle gany county. Fireworks, motor boat battles on the Potomac, motor boat parades and athletic contests are includ ed in the week's program. Services in the Churches. Home-coming services were held in every church in Cumberland yesterday morning and evening, and at many of the churches former pastors, home again for the week, delivered the sermons. Rev. James A. Hensey of Binghamton, N. Y., a native of Cumberland who entered the ministry from this city, preached at Cen ter Street Methodist Episcopal Church in the evening. Rev. W. A- Melvin filled the pulpit at both morning and evening services at the Bedford Street Methodist Protestant Church. Rev. Luther Martin, former pastor of Southminster Presby terian Church, addressed his former con gregation in South Cumberland. Rev. W. D. McCurdy of Martinsburg, V. Wa., filled his former pulpit at the First Bap tist Church. Rev. Dr. H. C. Holloway, the oldest living ex-pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, one of the oldest con gregations in Cumberland, preached at the morning service. Rev. E. E. Taylor of Madison, N. Y., addressed the congre gation at McKendree Methodist Episcopal Church. Rev. L. A. Rudasill of Lewis buTg, Va., preached at Central Methodist Episcopal Church South, and Rev. E. Trautermann at Trinity Lutheran Church. WOMEN HALE PRECEDENT. Named on Committees to Entertain % Commerce Chambers' Delegates.
