MJMllSlrMT5Tgl BLOODY BATTLE SUNDAY Italians Killed Two Officers and Wounded One Fatally. Bryan's Reception Involuntary Bal loon Ascension Experiments In Chicken Feeding Situation Darker In Cuba Review of the Atlantic Fleet Tribute to Emperor William. In a bloody buttle Sunday evening near Punxsutawney, Pa., between for eigners and the 21 members of Troop D. state constabulary, In which fully 500 shots were fired, two troopers were killed and one fatally wounded, while ihree other persons received bullet wounds. The trouble began late in the day when Sergeant Logan went to Flor ence to search for Leopold Scarlat, who Is charged with having shot hla brother-in-law. Logan was in a doc tor's office when Salvatore Waltsoch, who Is said to be one of the most des perate members of the "Black Hand," started a fight with a countryman In front of the house where Waltsoch boards. When Logan placed Waltsoch under arrest the latter Invited him into the boarding house to prove his good char acter. Logan had scarcely passed the door when one of three Italians in the house made an ineffectual lunge at hltu with a stiletto. Logan retreated but an Italian opened fire upon him with a niagar.lne shotgun. Logan returned the fire and the two men emptied their weapons at eaoh other. Logan pot a buckshot wound In the foot and the Italian was seeu to fall back Into the house, perhaps fa- tolly wounded. Logan, by Inquiring of the residents, learned that he had a "black hand" man to deal with. He telephoned to the barracks and a detachment of five privates was detailed by Lieu tenant Eagle to assist him. When the detachment arrived at Florence Private John Henry Immedi ately started for the house, but when about 20 feet from It was shot down. Chambers and Mullen, in atteoiptini; the rescue of Henry, were both chot before they reached him. A tele phone call was sent In for the entire force and 15 additional troopers were hurried to the scene. The second detachment arrived at dusk. While 12 of the constabulary kept firing Into the windows and f,-out doors of the house six policemen nutdo a rush for, the side door, which they battered In. Three of the officers, Zehrlnger, Gross and Cummtngs, dash ed up the stairs but were confronted by three of the Italians who opened fire. Zehrlnger fell at the first volley but the two other men escaped. The house where the Italians were barricaded was finally destroyed by dy namite and two Italians were arrested. One of the Inmntes was dead and an other fatally wounded. Great Welcome to William J. Bryan. William Jennings Bryan, who arrived In New York harbor Wednesday after noon and spent the night with friends on a steam yacht down the bay, en tered New York city Thursday at 4 o'clock and was the recipient of a con tinuing ovation from that hour until late at night, when he had finished a notable 80-minute address before 20, 000 persons gathered in Madison Square Garden. Mr. Bryan outlined clearly and vigorously the principles he thought should guide the Democrats In thoir next campaign. Greeted by nearly every prominent Democrat In the country and accom panied by them, Mr. Bryan was driven from the yacht landing at the Battery to the Victoria hotel. He was con stantly cheered by those on the crowd ed sidewalks. Once at the hotel he was fairly mobbed by thpusands of his admirers, was called upon for an Impromptu speech and then shook hands for more than an hour with an apparently never ending line of citizens. He dined with his family nnd friends and then was driven In an automobile to Madison Square Garden where his welcome home was made complete in a series of some of the most remarkable dem onstratlons New York has ever known. The garden meeting was presided over by Mayor Tom L. Johnson of I Cleveland. There were brief addresses by Governor Joseph W. Folk of Mis souri, Augustus Thomas, the play wrlght; Harry W. Walker of the Com mercial Travelers' Anti-Trust League, under whose auspices the reception was given, and Mr. Johnson. Mr. Bryan also addressed an over flow meeting outside the garden. He was then driven to his hotel, where he was personally greeted by William R. Hearst, who had been loudly cheered as he sat in a box at the garden meet ing. Died Just Before Policy Expired Dr. Shaw F. Neeley of Kansas City, Kan., former United States marshal of Kansas and several times mayor of Leavenworth, died 15 min utes before the policy of $15,000 on his life would have expired. The filing of his will developed that fact. Dr. Neeley had a policy for $15,000 In the Mutual Life of New York. He had allowed payment to become over due and taken advantage of the 30 days' grace allowed by the policy. He died at 11:45 o'clock at night. Had he lived until midnight the 30 days would have been expired. F. N. Cheney, St. Louis manager for the company, says satisfactory proof of the time of Dr. Neeloy's death has been furnished and the policy will be paid. An Involuntary Balloon Ascension. Caught by the anchor of a balloon and whirled GOO feet In the air over the heads of 5,000 spectators, a Mrs. Hoper of Brooklyn was seriously hut not fatally hurt at the Ulster county fair at Ellenvtlle. Maggie Dalley of Mlddletown, who has been making daily ascensions at the fair grounds In a hot air balloon, had just entered the car and was about to glye the order to cast off when the balloon broke loose and salV ed upwards with the anchor trailing. Before the bystanders could scatter Ihe anchor fluke caught in Mrs. Ro per's dress Bnd she was whipped up Into the air screaming. The weight' on the anchor rope caused the balloon to tip over and Miss Dallcy, looking out of the car to ascertain the cause of trouble, caught jight of her Involuntary fellow voyager swinging far below at the end of the rope, and at once pulled the safety cord. The balloon, which by that time had reached an altitude of 5U0 feet, quickly descended and reached ground a quar ter of a "'Ue from the point of as cension. Mrs. Roper struck the ground heavily and when picked up was found to be unconscious and to have sustained fractures of the should er, ankle and several fingers. She" had been summering at Walker Valley, Ul ster county. Experiments In Chicken feeding. The hen must do more work. This Is the Idea of the agricultural depart ment. Robert R. Slocum, a poultry ex pert, has been employed to devise ways and means by which chicken raising can be rendered more profit able. Mr. Slocum will be attached to the Bureau of Animal Industry. His first step will be to found a poultry-feeding establishment In connection with the Dureau's quarantine station near Balti more, where experiments in hog feed ing have been carried on for some time. There will be three pens constructed (or the accommodation of 25 hens each. rhe fowls will be fed on different plans. One of the pens will be fed with whole grain end cracked corn, together with a wet mash, and the oth er the same with a dry mash. The chickens in the third pen will be fed from self-fef ding hoppers, and will have food available at all times, jo that they can eat as much as they want. The effect on egg production and fattening will be recorded. Situation Darker In Cuba. The war situation In Cuba Is far iarker today than at any previous time sluce the insurrection broke out. News of an uprising In Santiago prov ince is causing the gravest concern. When Mr. Sleeper, the American charge d'affaires here, was told the contents of the Santiago dispatch he endeavored to verity it through the state department, but was told it was absolutely untrue. Subsequently the dispatch was verified from private sources and from newspaper sources. It Is the opinion here that the worst calamity of all to the Palma govern ment would be an Insurrection in Eastern Cuba. Two rellablle eye witnesses say that Cardenas, which hlthertp has been considered a perfectly peaceful city, was the scene Thursday of desultory fighting between police and rural guards on one side and roving Insurg ents on the other. The only province remaining peace ful Is Puerto Principe. Tribute to Emperor William. Colonel Lambert of Chicago says France and Germany are more pros perous than Great Britain, and espec ially Germany, owing to Emperor Will lam's surpassing gifts as a ruler. The emperor, he said, had put Ger many In the way of becoming the richest nation in Europe, had perfected the finest army on the continent nnd was laying the foundations of one of the greatest fleets nfloat. His consular service, Colonel Lam bert said, was an unmatched triumph, and behind it subsidized railways and steamships, methodically fostered trusts and a tariff like a Chinese wall. "If we are not careful," Colonel Lam bert added, "he will lick us out of our boots all over the world." Chicago and New York Electric Line.

Battling Nelson Lost the Fight by Fouling Joe Gans. Sans' Endurance Surprised Everyone. In the 33rd Round He Oroka His Right Hand and Afterwards Did All His Work With the Left Hand. Fought a Clean Fight. Goldfield, Nev., Sept. 4. Battling Nelson lost the fight by fouling Joe aans In the 42d round of the best and longest fight seen In many years. Both men were tired when the fight. snded but Gans was apparently , the stronger. He was away ahead on points and had smashed and cut Nel- jon all through the fight without be ing severely hurt himself. Shortly after the 42d round began he men were In their usual clinch. Melson had his head on Gans' shoulder and his arm down. Several times he nit Gaus below the belt, apparently feeling for a vital spot. At last he irew back his right arm and hit Gans i vicious blow squure Into the groin. The colored boy sank to his knees and rolled over on his back. Referee Slier without hesitation ordered Nelson to lis corner and awarded the fight to 3a us on a foul. Decision Had Unanimous Approval. Silui't decision received almost unanimous approval. The foul was so obvious that not even men who had bet on Nelson could say that it had not been committed. All through the long' contest Nelson had employed rough tactics. He lepeatedly butted Gans, and had to have his head hauled away by the referee. Referee Slier said that while he would not say that the foul was Inten tional, there was no doubt but it had been committed. Nelson, he said, had employed his usual tactics all through the fight and while be knew that Nel son was butting whenever lie had an opportunity he did not disqualify for that because he saw that it was not Hurting Gans and because no other referee had ever disqualified Nelson ,'or doing the same thing. Besides, tho people were there to see the fight and he did not want to disappoint them. Slier was loudly cheered as he left the ring, as was Gaus, who was car ried to his dressing room. Nelson nnd his seconds were hissed as they de parted. Billy Nolan, Nelson's man ager, made a disconnected statement In which he said that Gans had prom ised not to claim the decision on a foul and yet he Jumped at the first op portunity to make such' a claim. All Nelson would say was that Gans was tired and quit. Gans Broke His Hand. Gans In many ways put up a remark able fight. His endurance surprised every one. His work was the more wonderful when It Is known that In the 33rd round he broke his right hand. Never after that did he strike a blow with it with the exception of a few short arm jolts while clinching. He did all his work with the left hand. Cans' generalship was shown when he broke the hand. In the 33rd round he landed a hard right punch on the side of Nelson's face. A bone In the hand snapped and Gans stepped bnck with an expression of pain. He limped around as though he had hurt a foot and no one realized that he had in jured the right hand. Gans said after the fight that Nel son intentionally fouled. He said ho knew he could finish Nelson, as he was comparatively strong and Nelson was growing weaker all the time. "Larry" Sullivan announced for Gans that he would meet Nelson In two weeks in another fight, as he was sure he could whip him and did not want to take ad vantage of the foul. Gans explained that he did not want to box Nelson for fear of tiring him self. He found early that ho could protect himself In clinches and real ized that the exertion In fighting that way was less than If he stood back and did some showy boxing. He was hit ting Nelson all the time and maHing the Dane do most of the work. The first 15 rounds of the fight were list. After that the men slowed up. Although Gans was far ahead of Nel son In points and most of the time looked like a sure winner, Nelson put up a wonderful fight. Time and again Gans would jolt him on the jaw, send ing the Dane back. Ills knees would bend and his eyes become glazed, but he always fell Into a clinch and held on and would then come back lighting as hard as ever. On occasions Nelson apparently had the advantage. He would hit Gans as they broke from a clinch and the col ored boy would hang on and wrestle. Gans Fought a Clean Fight. Gans fought a clean fight. Twice when he knocked Nelson down he picked hlni up. Once when one of Cans' punches knocked Nelson through the ropes Gans picked him up and helped him to his feet. As the col ored boy stood with his hands down waiting for Nelson to steady himself Nelson gave him a vicious blow In the stomach. Nelson was roundly hissed for this by the crowd. Although Goldfield Is a mining camp there was no disturbance of any kind and l.o rough language used. Gans was the favorite. Ills behavior won the admiration of the Goldfield people and they showed it. The attendance was about 5,000. About 200 women were present. An nouncdr Sullivan declared that one of the sorts of President Roosevelt was In the crowd. PEACE THROUGH COMPROMISE. Thought to Be the Only Way of Set tling Cuban Revolt. Havana, Sept. 4. Peace through po litical compromises 13 the sole topic of conversation in all the best Inform ed circles, where It Is recognized as the only ".ray of bringing about a set tlement of the Internal troubles. Therefore there Is a general disposi tion not to agree with the stand taken by President Palma, that the govern ment should not treat with the Insurg ents upon the basis of arranging a compromise, and the president Is un derstood to have already modified his attitude to the extent that he has no objection to privnte negotiations on the subject. It Is believed that an attempt to reach peace through some compro mise will now be made. Several bodies of insurgents have been seen with Increasing frequency between Plnar del Rlo and Consola clou del Sur, in the province of Plnar del Rio.
