In an effort to prove this contention, counsel for the negro will point out that Turner was shot twice by Moore before the letter was slain by bullets from the negro's revolver. That Moore fired at the negro in an effort to defend the honor of Miss Clark. to whom he was affianced. will be the contention of the Govern ment. Miss Clark is to testify that while she and Moore were sitting in an automobile. Turner came along, leveled a revolver at them, and de manded money. When money was refused him, the negro fired a shot which frightened Miss Clark. who leaped from the automobile, the negro following her, attethpting to attack her and did take two rings and a watch which she proffered him. She will testify it was then that Moore began firing at the negro, who was twice shot. TWO LYNCHING ATTEMPTS.

The jewelry was valued at - $100,000. and three diamonds apprais ed at $1,000 were destroyed by a bul let, which was found in the box. Mr. Mann purchased the~jewelry at Tif fany's and directed it to be shipped to his wife, who is a daughter of Rod man Wanamaker, Deputy Police Com .missioner. Whether the shot was fired into the box before or after it reached the Munn home has not been ascertained by the police or the agents of the American Railway Express.- through whose hands it passed to Radnor. Officers of the express company dis claim responsibility for the destruc tion of the stones, displaying a receipt signed by an employe at the Munn home which vouches that the box was received in good condition. Mr. Munn is equally innistent. so detec tives said, that the box was received with the bullet hole in it. MILLET TRAVELI T5 FEET. The box, which is now at police headquarters, is eight inches square and six inches deep. H. A. Campbell. head of the Bureau of Mines, United tates army, an explosive expert, who was called in by the detectives, said the pistol wag fired at a distance ex ceeding seventy-five feet from the box. Although the paper in which the box had been wrapped contained a hole through which the bullet is sup posed to have passed. Mr. Campbell gave it as hi. opinion that the jewel box 'was unwrapped when the shot was fired. The bullet was from a .3 caliber pistol. Investigators of the express com pany have advanced the theory, so the detectives said, that the employe who received the box feared it Con tained a bomb, removed the outer covering and, setting it up somewhere outside the Mdunn home where an ex plosion could do no damage, fired a shot at it. The investigators assert the box was not unlfke the one re ceived last smumer at the home of Mrs Rodman Wanamaker in Tuxedo Park, N. Y., and later found to con tain a bomb. A former butler in the Wanamaker home since then has been sent to Sing Sing prison for sending the bomb. VALUATION A TRIFLE 3303. While none ot the officers of Tif fany & Co0. would discuss the mystery it was learned that the diamond ex perts assert it is virtually impossible for a .38 calibre bullet to destroy three diamonds.

The appointment of receivers for the Southern building was requested in a suit filed today in the District Supreme Court by William Frank Thyson, Edward J. Walsh. William Sohmer. and Ralph B. Fleharty, re ceivers for the First National Fire Insurance Company, against the Southern Realty Corporation. The plaintiffs also ask the court to set aside as invalid the deed from the insurance company to the Southern Realty Corporation, of May 22, 1917. Petitioners, represented by Attor neys Douglas, Obear and Douglas, in asking for tE appointment of re tceivers to operate the building, allege that this step is necessary on the ground that "the defendant is grossly mismanaging the building and among other things has increased or attempt ed to increase excessively and uncon sciously the rent of the tenants of the building, or at least of the great majority of them, which increased rent the tenants have refused to pay and are threatening to vacate. the result of which ic that the good will of the S4outhern building is being seriously and permanently injured and the value the plaintiff's interests in the buildg, whether as owner of the equity or of the second trust notes thereon. is greatly reduiced." To the petition is atached an aff davit by Attorney Jo. V. Morgan. who has offices in the building, claiming he had been advised that the rentals would be increased from 100 to 200 per cent. He believes the present rentals are 30 per cent in excess of the rentals charged tenants at the commencement of the war. Mr. Morgan alleges that notwithstanding the fact that a first trust of $90o,000 matuares in February. 1903. and a second trust of nearly S700,000 in ApAIl of the same year. no sinking fund Is being created to aid in the retirement or reduction of the amnounts when they are due, I Is, SubmI VMZIT phtgah'of h national ontest bAld 3 The larg pioture sh" ta defender, while bar sails v leading the Shamrock until halyards parted and she wa inset shows the Resolute a broke and just before the photographs were takmn fro Resolute Cc To Be Fa Wagers C By FRANCIS J. WHiTE. Internati~eal News Servtee. SANDY HOOK, N. J.. July 16. With the first of the series of yacht races a thing of history, Shamrock IV, the victor, and Resolute, the un fortunate defender. are lying at anchor in Horseshoe Cove today, awaiting the morrow and the second contest of the series. Despite the defeat of the Resolute yesterday. the betting odds remain unchanged, with the American boat still the favorite. The crews of both sloops were showing signs of activity early this morning. The shipping of a new hal yard for the Resolute demanded the attention of the defender's crew. This wilt be effected tong before sunidown and the boat also will receive a mi roscopic overhauling from the tip of her bowsprit to the end of her boom. As far as human attention and care can go. every precaution will be taken today to avoid a repetition of Thursdays mishap. Though Skipper Adams and his crew have learned a hard lesson as a result of the acci dent, there is still a feeling of abso lute confidence, amounting to op timisnm, among them, because of the ine showing the defender made up to the time she went out of the first, race. The Pthamrock's crew is strangely silent. They have learned a lot dur ing the last twenty-four hours, but with typical British taciturnity they refrain from talking about the man nr in which they scored the first vic tory.
