Tokio Friday Aug 7 The depart

exceptions the 4 farmers and mechan

themselves of this loaii in varying sums
from 130000 yon to 25000 yen Com

claiej that the loan of only 2500000

Patrolman Thomas Gillesplo Is lying
at his home 825 west North Temple

and concussion ot Iho brain His con

Txckcd In a cell at the city Jnll is a
man giving the nnmo of George Wilson
a burly stranger who cume here he
says with tlie Buffalo Bill wild west
show He will bo charged with as
sault with a deadly weapon upon Pa
li olman Gillesplo
This condition of affairs Is the re
sult of an attempt on the part of Po
liceman Gillesple this morning at 7
oclock to arrqst Wilson for drunken
ness and disturb the peace It
happened on the corner of First South
and Main street at 7 oclock
WiNun who claims ho belongs to
the Uuffalo Hill show arrived hero
last evening and proceeded to load up
on whisky Ho prowled about tho
streets all night when he was not in
saloons drlnking and created an up
roar wherever he went Numerous
complaints were madq about the fel
lows actions as ho had created many
disturbances along the route of his
wanderings At First South and Main
street this morning1 he howled and
cursed and was apparently looking for
Patrolman Gillesple saw the man and
started to place him under arrest
With a bellow of rage the burly
stranger grappled with the policeman
and o quick and unexpected was the
attack that Gillesple was taken com
pletely by surprise AVIIeon seized the
patrolmans club and being su powerful
nnd heavy man wrenched thy stick
from tho policemans hand Quick us
a Hash ho swung the club with terrilie
force down on Giliespies left shoulder
badly fracturing tjift bqnes gillqsn e
bravely grappled with tho enraged inan
and tried to fight him off but Wilson
wrenched himself away from the pollce
tman and again j wung < thp hcavy club
side ofthehead
Gillesple fell like a log In his tracks
The fellow then prepared to strike an
other blow when Patrolman HInton
who had been attracted to tho scene
by tho gathering crowd rushed up and
dealt AVIlson a powerful blow on the
head with his club Wilson fell to the
sidewalk unconscious by tho sldo ot
the senseless policeman
Word was sent to police headquar
ters and Wilson was taken to the sta
tion Patrol Driver George Moore e
curod the chiefs buggy and took
Gillesple to tho latters home Dr
Benedict responded illicitly to the call
and did all In his power for the In
jured patrolman He found that Gll
lesples shoulder had been fractured
and that he had concussion It could
not be determined definitely whether or
not the skull was fractured but the
physiLlap was of the opinion that there
wns no fracture of iho skull The in
jury Is most serious however and
there Is grave danger that the police
man may not recover from the terrl
bleb lows dealt him by Wilson
The fellow was hauled to the police
station and did not completely regain
consciousness until ho was being
searched by Patrolmen HInton and
Kast Then his rage broke out again
nnd he savagely attacked Kast touring
tho hitters coat completely from his
back The two policemen quickly over
powered the follow handcuffed him
and threw him bodily into the drunk
house Tho blow he received from Hln
tqns club put him down and out hut
the man Is of snob great strength that
ho soon recovered and will suffer no
particularly ill effects from the treat
ment he received
According to other policemen Glllox
plewho was walking First South street
saw Wilson early this morning and or
dered him to get off tho streets When
he again saw AVIIson at 7 oclock ho
1 thought I told you to go to bed
Gillesplo then started to pluci thefel
low tirjder arrest when Wilson with a
snarl of rage sprang upon tho pa
trolman tore the club from his hands
and struck him two vicious blows on
the shoulder and bend A statement
could not be secured from Gillosple as

A C Reid Mr Hirst Frank C Clark
and J Jenkins fought tho flames for
two hours In the hope that they might
save two wheat stacks But their ef
forts were unsuccessful and the stacks
were consumed The fire burned all
Sunday and the following night with
the result that about EDO bushels of
wheat were destroyed As the flames
changed their tack and coursed In tho
directjon of Mr Jenkins residence the
firefighters ran in that direction to
stop If possible the fire from crossing

The following statement from Man
ager Fisher Harris of thu Commercial
club relative to Rev Shorts short

Sunday will no doubt voice the seutl
inuntri of many other sober thinking
citizens Ho sixid today In an Inlor

L am of tho opinion that wo are pay

thuni a dignity1 which hey do not do
Kone1 I inn not dcllnitcly informed
as to just what ho did gay nor as to
the extent of thu publicity his remarks
rocelvoil but I will venture the asser

woe and forebodings of dire disaster
received fijr more attention her than
anywhere else nil oarth
The Ucv Short is a comparatively
young iimn and his assumption df tho
role ofJeremiah ia but the ebullition
of youthful Ignorance and inlsdlrcutod

to fact his angry lock and live down

to one day announce to a waiting world
that Salt Jjike is iho chief among ten
thousand and the one city of the na
