GEORGE SCHLISTLER OF DENVER SHOOTS HiS NEIGHBORS. He Armed Himself With a Rifle and Shot at Every One That Came in His Way—Neighborly Quarrel—Bar ricaded Himself in His House and When Found He Was Dying. Denver, Col., March 13.—Mad with rage because of his defeat in a law suit in which the man he pronounced i ! as his bitterest enemy had been vie torious, and swearing vengeance against himself and his entire fam-1 I two at least dangerously. The deau: K. Fill. Mrs. K. Fill, George Schistler. The missing—A child of the Fills. Wounded—Dr. Frank Dulin, police surgeon; Captain William Bohanna, acting chief of police; Mike Kelly. The wife of George Schistler is pros trated over the affair, and may die from the shock. Murder of the Fills. Schistler had brooded over his i troubles with the Fill family, who were immediate neighbors, and an nounced that he would even up mat ters. Taking a ritle of improved pat tern and bucking on a belt of smoke less cartridges, he started for the Fill home. Kill saw him approaching and heard his muffled threats. He tried to avoid him by entering the house, but Schistler sent a bullet into his brain with the accuracy ol a marks man and Fill fell dead. Mrs. Fill rushed to her husband's ily, George Schistler, a teamster, arm ] ed himself with, a rifle Sunday, and when the smoke of battle had cleared . away three persons were dead, one missing and three others lay wounded, j side and received a bullet from Schist-j ler's rifle, fired with unerring aim. She, too, fell dead alongside the life less body of her husband. Burns House and Fill Child. Not content with the fullness of hi* vengeance', Schistler then set lire to the Fill home*, which was destroyed, and il is thought a son of the Fills lost his life in the fire. After satisfying himself that the flames would perform their mission, Schistler returned to his own home and barricaded himself inside*. ln thoi meantime other neighbors, attracted by the sound of the* firing, appeared on the scene, but quickly retreated when bullets began falling around them. Police Arrive. A telephone* message* was sent te> police headquarters and an ambulance, with Police Surgeon Dulin. Captain j Bohanna and three officers, hurried to (he scene. The officers were directed to the Fill home by neighbors who had wit nessed tlie killing, and they startl'd unhesitatingly in the direction of the house. In doing so they were com pelled to come within range of Schist ler's rifle. A volley of bullets rained around them suddenly, and Dulin and Bohanna fell to I In* floor of the ambu lance. The driver stopped his horses, but another shot from the house! dropped one of the animals to tin* ground. With Hu* assistance of spec tators the wounded men were taken from the ambulance and conveyed to a hospital, where their wounds were ill ■essed. Dulin was shot three times, once in each leg and another time in the left thigh. His condition is criti cal. Bohanna received a bullet in the leg, but is not dangerously hurt. Hundreds of Shots Exchanged. A call for reinforcements brought all the availal Ic men from police head quarters and the sheriff's office, and a consultation was held for the purpose of formulating a plan to capture Schistler. Firing squads were sta tioned in nearby houses and a larger force was placed in a portable fort made of baled hay piled upon a hay wagon. During the preliminary ar rangements Schistler kept up a contin uous fire in all directions, which was returned, and hundreds of shots were exchanged. It was during Ibis sheet ing that Kelly received his wound Finally fewer stiots were heard to ex plode in tin* direction of Hie Schistler house, and the liny wagon fort was started toward tlie house, proceeding cantously and without firing. Finally one of the officers purposely exposed himself to view in order to draw out the fire of Schistler if he was still alive. Schlistler Found Dying. He was disagreeably disappointed and the officers then charged the house and battered down the door. Not i sound came from inside, and, enter ing, they found Schistler lying upon a bed bleeding from several wounds and breathing his last, lb* died soon afterward. It is not known whether he was hit by bullets from the weap ons of tlie pursuing party or commit ted suicide. Mrs. Schistler was away from home when her husband started on his vengeful mission, and when told of the affair fell prostrate. It thought she will die from the shock During the several hours' battle with the murderer hundreds of people were attracted to the scene in an outlying suburb, and Mayor Speer and Police Commissioner Hewitt directed the work of the police to a certain ex tent.

The past week has been one of re peated reverses for the Russians in Manchuria. It closed with a crushing defeat and the retirement of Kuropat kin s entire army, or as much of it as could get away, to Tie Pass. The long battle to the north of Muk den has been one of the most sangui nary in history. It is impossible as yet to approximate the casualties, but according to all accounts the total will aggregate something never before known in modern engagements. It is impossible to determine how many Russians have been cut off. but it appears that a considerable portion ,,j ^li,. Russian army has succeeded in reaching Tie Pass, and the defense of 'the rear guard has been sufficiently stubborn to permit of a withdrawal ^ ]e R that is remarkably successful under ircumstances. Although Tie Pass was fortified last fall, it is by no means certain that the Russians ca n hold this new posi t j on for any great length of time .They w jjj a j present enjoy an advantage, for the Japanese, after 10 days' unin terrupted fighting and long marches, must be in a condition of exhaustion that will prevent, an immediate effort to dislodge Kuropatkin from his new stronghold. But the Russians are in a badly shat tered condition, and if Oyama is able to repeat his flanking movements it would not create surprise if the order was once more given to fall back anti an orderly retirement was effected to ward Hirbin. FIGHT TO THE BITTER END. Russia to Raise New Army—Rojest ver.sky to Fight Togo. St. Petersburg, March 14.—The im mediate answer of the Russian gov ernment to the defeat at Mukden is the announcement that a new army will In* raised and the forces in the far east reorganized; that Vice Admiral Etojestvensky will lie ordered to sail I on and t ry conclusions with Togo and I bat the war will lie prosecuted to the bitter end. This is the present temper of Emper or Nicholas and his dominant advisers, 1 voiced j n an official announcement that j | the position of Russia is unchanged, and that the initiative for peace can only come from Japan. Should the: island empire choose to tender "mod crate*" terms and recognize its adver snry as I lie* power in the far east peace ceuiid he easily arranged; hut the voice of her diplomacy in various parts of the world indicates that she | is „„t ready to do this, and the* Rqs ill lo fe j a sian government, with the full magni tude of tin* disaster at Mukden still undetermined, but with the 1905 cam paign seemingly already hopelessly compromised, retreat to Harbin ine vitable, and Vladivostok practically lost, declares that the time lias not yel come when Russia can be forced to humble herself. I! is reported that the dispatch of two new army corps, including the Fourteenth, front Poland, and several smaller units, has already been deter mined upon, and that plans tor further niobolization are under discussion. Peace Talk in the Air. Bui while this is Die official attitude nothing but peace talk is heard in St I Petersburg.
