Robert Lee, marshal at Segundo, a Colorado Fuel and Iron company camp twelve miles west of this city, was shot and killed shortly after noon today by a foreign coal miner, name unknown, who with two other foreigners had been detected by Lee in the act of tearing up a small foot bridge at that camp. Lee was shot from his horse, the bullet striking him in the breast and penetrating a lung. The foreign ers made their escape to the hills and j are still at large. A posse has beeii organized and is scouring the hills. The foi si-iu rs are strikers and ha'd come into the camp this morning from one of tin- neighboring camps. The foot bridge across an arroyo had been but newly built. The foreigners are declared to have attempted to destroy the bridge and Marshal Lee was noti fied and rode up to them on horse back. As he drew within a few feet of the foreigners, one of them fired. The bullet dropped the marshal and he rolled from his horse dead. John Thompson an electrician who ran to the aid of the marshal was shot at twice bv the foreigners in their flight, but bullets passing over his head. The shooting has caused a fur or of excitement and feeling is run ning high. This is the first outbreak since the calling of the coal strike. It is looked upon as the beginning of a crisis. Following the shooting at Segundo, reports were circulated that the strik ers, In various camps are arming and planning to march on the mines which are still in operation. These rumors, while they caused some uneasiness, could not be verified. Marshal Lee, the dead man, is one of the oldest of the coal camp officers in Las Animas county. No change in the strike situation has been reported, the operators still maintain that their mines are being operated with a small force of men and the officials of the United Mine Workers say that ninety-eight per cent have walked out. A meeting was held at Starkville this morning, addressed by "Mother" Jones, who delivered an impassioned address in which she urged the miners to fight until death and never surrender. Denver, Colo., Sept 24. President J. F. Wellborn, of the Colorado Fuel & Iron company, this afternoon issued the following statement relative to the killing of Robert Lee, at Segundo: "Robert Lee, who has been in the employ of the Colorado Fuel & Iron company for several years, was shot and killed about 12 o'clock today by one of five men who were togetaor, and who made their escape into the hills. "No attack on the men had been made by Lee, as he was on his hor'o at the time and his revolver was in Its holster when he was picked up dead. "Lee's character and habits were above reproach." Will Spare No Expense. Denver, Colo., Sept. 24. When in formed by news dispatches of the killing of Marshal Robert Lee at Se gundo, Governor Amnions called Sher iff J. S. Grisham and instructed him to spare no expense to capture the three men implicated in the shooting. The governor said the sheriff would have the support of the state adminis tration in maintaining order. While the incident was to be regretted, the governor explained that he did not re gard it of sufficient importance to call out the militia. ' - Denver, Sept. 24.

RAILROAD WINS LAWS SUIT BY VERDICT TODAY IT COMES INTO EX CLUSIVE CONTROL OF THE RIO GRANDE JUNCTION RAILWAY FORMERLY USED JOINTLY WITH THE COLORADO MIDLAND. Denver, Colo., Sept. 24. Judge J. A. Hiner in the United States district court at Cheyenne today handed down an opinion sustaining the sale of 7,371 shares of stock in the Rio Grande Junction railway to the Denver & Rio Grande.. The effect of the decision is to give the Denver and Rio Grande ex clusive control of the Rio Grande Junction, a line hitherto used by the Rio Grande and the Midland jointly from Newcastle to Grand Junction, Colo. The suit was brought by the Central Trust company of New York, trustee for the bonds of the Colorado Midland against the Colorado Midland, the Denver & Rio Grande, the Rio Grande Junction and Geo. J. Gould. The complainant corporation alleged that the sale of the Rio Grande Junc tion stock to the Denver & Rio Grande after the Colorado Midland had de faulted in the payment of a $480,000 loan for which the Rio Grande Junc tion stock had been deposited as col lateral security, was invalid.

The photograph of Ellis, or Bro kaw, sent broadcast by the Pittsburg police department, was identified posi tively by four persons here as the man who killed Schlansky. The operations of Ellis were simi lar in all the cities he visited. Here he called at the Schlansky store, told him he had some clothing at his room in the hotel, which he wanted to sell. Schlansky accompanied him to the room in the hotel ana it ts supposea resisted the attempt to rob him and he was killed.

Sir Edward Carson, leader of the Ulster Unionists, all the Irish Union ist members of the house of commons, the Duke of Abercorn, and many other peers and representatives from all parts of the province of Ulster, at tended. Full details of the provisional con stitution of the province were com municated to the meeting for formal ratification. The earnestness with which the participants regarded tha procedure was exemplified in report of the meeting, which declared: "This nucleus of an Ulster parlia ment will put its hands to a document no less remarkable than the Declara tion of Independence and as pregnant villi possibilities of change In the po litical history of t.ba country." The meeting was held behind closed doors, but subsequently an officinl an nouncement was issued, as follows: "All the steps have been taken for repudiating the decrees of a Nation alist parliament and for taking over the government of the province of l ister in trust for the British nation." The articles of the Ulster constitu tion were approved by the delegates. The details are not to be published until the day the home rule bill is placed on the statute books. , ; A fund was started at today's ses ysfftri to Indemnify the relatives of any killed or wounded among the Ulster volunteers.

The forest service this year will have to expend on roads in New Mexi co and Arizona practically the same amount It spent last year. This means that New Mexico will receive approxi mately $12,000 and Arizona about $25, 000. The road improvement funds rep resent 10 per cent of the receipts of timber sales received by the forest service in the last year. There was t some doubt as to whether congress ! would allow the subtraction of 10 per ! cent this year, as it did a year ago, I for roads, but the congressmen finally decided to continue the practice. The difference between the New Mexico and Arizona road funds marks proportionally the difference . be tween timber sales in the two states.
