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
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
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
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
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
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.
Elaborate ceremonies Saturday at
tended the turning of tho first shovel
of earth near Laporte, Ind., by Pres
ident Alexander C. Miller, In the con
struction of the Chicago & New York
Electric Air Line railway. The com
pany proposes to build un electric lino
between Chicago und New York 750
miles long. After the turning of the
first shovel of earth, two construction
gangs with steam shovels and dredges
started, one working each way. Pres
ident Miller says that the line will be
In operation In four years as all sur
veys have been made and much right
of way has been purchased.
Review of the Atlantic Fleet.
Monday, Labor day, what was prob
ably the greatest assemblage of war
vessels In the history of the Western
hemisphere was reviewed by Presi
dent Roosevelt In the waters of Long
Island sound, off Oyster hay. In the

dent Roosevelt will attend the cere
monies In celebration of the 200th an
niversary of. Christ church, Oyster
Bay, and will deliver an address.
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.
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.
