WEDNESDAY, Jl.'XK 94, 1 90S. SLAYER OFTHREE DENVER HALL IS It HONORED BY ITALIANS MerchantWho Shot Agents of Black Hand Society Is Idol of Wealthy Men. New Orleans. June 24. At last has come the open season for member of the Black Hani. Rietro Gideon 3, a wealthy wine merchant, h is o declared, by killing three Black Hand extortioners and wounding one, when the quartet went to his h"me at night and demanded that he open his cash box to them. Giacono, though arrested, is the Idol of the wealthy Italians of New Orleans. They have overwhelmed him with expreswlons of sympathy, as surances of assistance and floral offer, lngs. A fund was raided ti present him with a gold medal for h's bravery and accurate aim. All the wealthy Italians are now carrying pi.-t ds and awaiting an op portuni.y to get Uieir names on the it'll of honor. Incidentally, there has leen a suVlen ctwatlou of Ulack Ilnnd demands. Men who have juii tribute to the Hiack Hand f r yi .ns are boldly de claring defiance. This blow, they say will strike teri"r to the heart of the holdup assas.-ins. as it will encourage the victims t' greater resistance. Giacno. who his been a wine mr chant here lor tenty years and has become vteal.hy above the average of his clan, lives In the old mansion which was occupied for years by Gen. Beauregard, the Keau Brummel of -the Confederacy. It la a typical, old style southern home, with wide porch, es, front and rear. Giaoono and his won were seated on the rear porch when the Black Hand quartet rang the front door bell. The family had been eating water melon, and. shortly before, the women Jiau retired. The visitors unceremon iously entered as tliacono opened the door. Two of them. Giovanni Barreco and Clro Cusimaiio, he knew. They had been customers before they began ex torting money from him by Black Hand methods. He had advanced them each about $400. The other two were strangers. Barreco explained that they were hungry and wanted something to eat. G'acono led ihem to the rear porch where his son still sat at the table. He explained that there was nothing In the house but bread and eggs, and, when Barreco said that would suffice, tolj his son to prepare them. For an hour they sat eating and drinking Ine. Then Barreco made his demand for money, saying he must have ISO. Cus lmano wanted $100. The other two wanted money to pay their passage to Italy. Giacono said he had only, $5 In cash, but would write them check. "We must have the cash," declared Barreco. ' -. 'I will see If the women have any money," Giacono sail, rising and went Into the house. Recently be had received a Black Hand letter de manding JS.0U0. This had led to his purchasing a Winchester rifle, a re flating shotgun and wveral revolvers. lie went to get the rifle,, , In their conversation the' men had grimly laughed In explaining how cheaply they valued human life, and what they would do to any man who li'luied to give them money. Giacono had laughed, too, with assumed am usement, while chills were chasing -ach' other up and down his spine. Wtien he left them h had fully de cided upon his course. When he disappeared the men gave attention to young Corrado Giacono, the son. Cuslmano staked htm for 4100. ' The son said he had no money. "Get it quick," Cuslmano advised, turning to Barreco and laughing sig nificantly. Frightened the young man arose and Cusimano's hand stole to ward his pocket. "Give It to him," said Barreco, addressing his compan ion. , V Cuslmano fired point blank at young Giacono, who dashed for a doorway. Cusimano's aim was bad and the shot went wild. At that In stant Giacono, the elder, stepped out side with his rifle. Ho be gan firing at once. The fusillade which followed killed three of the men and wounded the fourth, who ea. raped only to be caught by the police. He Is in the hospital, a bullet wound In his left side. He will recover. ss AFFAIR Acoustics of Building Where Democrats ;Meet Said to be as Perfect as Possible. Badly Sprained Ankle Cured.

The acoustic I tironert fr!i of thi npiv rntitfr utiilitor I u in, lik h scats 14,000 pel .sons, are pronounced as perfect as In any sim ilar assembly hall In the country. Ac tors, . 1 1 1 k i and orators have been Indue. 0 to make practical lefts of the uvou.-iic alu. s ol the great hall and ch.uiK' havi been made at thu sug- gi.tlon of thoHf ho have found do ft its As the place I. now arranged, a s, ik4 0s v.j a moderate speaking tone is- I'lai-'ly h-ard by auditors sit t.iiij in uny part of the vast building. The committee in charge of the constitution of the auditorium decid ed to place the stage for the conven (ion as nar the center of the hall a possible, Instead of near one end, as U the custom In such places. This gives the speaker a great advantage, Inasmuch as it enables him to use a lower tone of voice than Is usually employed In addressing 14.800 people although he Is required to turn his bavk to part of his audience. Sink the Speakers' Stand. The Denver auditorium is so con structed that the speaker stands on a lower level than h a auditors, and all the air currents passing through the building for ventilating purposes are drawn from directly beneath the platform on which the speakers stand In this manner every circumstance tend to cany the ounda of the speaker's voice straight to his hear ers, so that his lowest tone is more plainly heard than are Ihe strongest efforts of a speaker addressing an audience In a hall constructed In the ordinary way It is believed the construction of the convention hull and th ncoustic propertie.s will add greatly in expedit ing the business of the- convention. It is planned to have a large number of speakers and the admirable acoustic advantage. will probably tempt many to address the convention v, ho under ordinary conditions would despair of ever making themselves heard to 14, 000 persons. The lights used In the convention hall are noiseless. They are immense clusters of Incandescent electric lamps. This will obviate the constant sputtering and blinding glare so an noying where arc lights are employed for Illumination. ITotc-tliHi Apitn-n oiso. Tin? telegn. ph instruments In the auditorium will also be noiseless, Messages will be sent from the press taole Immediately in front of the pre siding officer's desk. The matting on the a'sles of the auditorium and the folding 'Boats with which the place Is supplied throughout are selected so that the. least no se will result from the movements of the Immense crowd that will be present at the session of tile convention. . It Is believed that 100.000 will come to Denver to attend the conven tion. The number of hotel reserva tions and the special trains chartered from the various states are the basis for this estimate.

As long as I would re main In an erect position I experi enced no difficulty of any kind, but the least strain or tension brought onto the muscles of the loins caused me to suffer severely.
