JOHN H. SAMUELS
SHOT BY FATHER
"Cyclone," the Consta
j ble, i.avesLike Maniac
When L ocked Up.
CLAIMS IT WAS
DUE TO ACCIDENT
Son Hurried to Hospital With
.38 Calibre Bullet in His Stom?
ach?Neiglibors Heard Quar?
rel in Stable Just Before
Shot Was Fired?Trag?
edy in County.
Thomas H. Samuels, known as
"Cyclone,'' and looked upon as one
of the most unique characters In Hen
rlco county, where he has served as
1 a constable for Varlna District, last
night shot and probably mortally
wounded his son, John 11. Samuels,
Ihlrty-nve years old.
The shooting look place In the
. stable of Samuels's liome in the Os
born Turnpike, two miles below Ful?
ton. .Samuels claimed that it wab an
accident, but it was alleged that he
had quarreled with his son, and while
' in a rage shot him.
The bullet, of .3fc calibre entered
the younger man's stomach. He was
brought to the Ketreat for the Sick
by Dr. H L. Reams and an operation
was performed at once. It was said
that he would likely die.
Father Sent to Jail. -,
News of the shooting quickly spread,
; and the father was placed under ar?
rest by Special Officer M. T. Barlow.
He was taken to the Henrlco County
Jail and held without ball.
[ When placed under arrest the prls
I oner behaved like a maniac. All the
! way to Jail he shrieked and screamed.
Finally placed behind the bars, his
acts became more and more like those
of a modmon. He Jumped about his
cell, beating his head against the wall,
he screamed, pulled t*? the heavy steel
bars and prayed.
He called upon all of the powers to
attest that the shooting was an acci?
dent, and it was with difficulty that he
1 was restrained from doing himself
bodily harm.
In the recent primary Samuelf was
defeated for re-election as constable
i by Harvey Southward. This fact
I seemed to prey upon his mind, and
I those who came In contact with him
I noticed a decide'd change in him. For
ja long while his mind is said to have
! been weak. His memory was always
I poor, and when his friends heard of
' the shooting last night and saw and
I talked with him, they pronounced him
as mad as a March hare.
That he had frequent quarrels with
: his son was known. His temper, when
I aroused, had always been violent.
: Knowing these things, It was said
. that he was not accountable for the
. shooting.
As constable the money Samuels
i earned was not sufficient to supply his
[ needs. He was cared for by his son,
1 who was employed at the plant of the
Richmond Cedar Works.
No Witnesses Found.
As far as could be learned, no one
witnessed the shooting. According to
the prisoner, he was at home about 7
o'clock, when he had occasion to go
to the stable to get a bundle he had
left In a vehicle. Being dark, he
1 struck a match.
At this point, he says, his son en
; tered the place and cautioned hitsi about
j fire. It appears that John Samuels was
; angry, and. according to his father's
,' story, he swore and cursed the old
! man. .
"Cyclone" said that he turned to leave
his son, and stooping over to pick up
his package, his gun was accidentally
; discharged.
Neighbors declare that they heard
j Samuels shouting and apparently quar?
reling with the son several minutes be?
fore there was the sound of a revolv?
er's report.
The .prisoner was brought to the
county jail and placed in charge of
Deputy Sheriff Joseph Dyne. With the
i babble of about two dozen animated
I voices and the cries and groans of
1 Samuels, the scene bordered on pande?
monium.
In lienttlr's Old Cell.
j When escorted to the cell which was
I occupied by Henry Clay Bentlle. Jr..
i now in the City Jail undor sentence of
' death for the murder of his young
; wife, Samuels became more wild. ? He
I raved, stamped and swore. He would
j quiet down at intervals and pray. In
broken sentences he offered himself
? self-pity, and would then cry out that
\ it was an accident.
I Samuels Is a veteran of the Confed?
erate States Army. In his body to?
day he claims to have eight bullet
wounds received in battle. He was a
1 native of Caroline county. Ho has had
I many rare experiences and adventures
j while serving for more than u score
of years as a constable, and has llg
ured prom'nenily In the newspapers.
He is known to almost every man,
I woman and child In Henrlco and many
I in the city.
OVERCOME BY DISSIPATION
I Graduate of Dublin University Ar?
raigned for Disorderly Conduct.
New York, September 29.?Magi 8
i tr?te House, in the Night Court here,
os-.riy to-day recognized a prisoner who
?had been arraigned before him a." a

RICHMOND SPIRIT
STIRS BOOSTERS
Missionaries of Pros?
perity Get Together
at Smoker.
W. T. DABi\EY IS
CHIEF OPTIMIST
Tells Boosters Gathered at Jef?
ferson of City's Opportunity
to Get Acquainted With
Present and Possible Cus?
tomers?B a d g e s and
Tickets Distributed.
Enthusiasm flowing like the prom?
ised streams of milk and honey last
night marked the smoker given in
honor of the Richmond Boosters in
the auditorium of the Jefferson Hotel,
and If any dependence can be placed
in prophecy in these days of prophets,
then the tour througli Virginia and
North Carolina must result in a new
era of trade and commercial friendli?
ness between the people of the two
.States.
There were no set speeches last
night. The affair was Informal. Just
a boost for the Boosters by way of
encouragement and a little talk to
show what the city of Richmond ex?
pects of her volunteer delegates who
go forth early Monday morning to
preach a new gospel of prosperity.
When J. St. George Bryan, of The
Times-Dispatch, and W. T. Dabney,
business manager of the Chamber of
Commerce, finished thotr talks, the
Boosters, of whom, with their friends,
about 200 were present, enjoyed a
smoker and slight repast and talked
together over the things they expect
to do on tho tour and of how they
propose to boost tho city In which
they live and in which all expect to
end their days. Souvenir badges bear?
ing the insignia "First Annual Rich?
mond Boosters' Tour, October'2, 3, 4,
1311, under the auspices of The Times
Dispatch." were given to all the dele
gotes, and every* man got his reserva?
tion slip to show where he must live
and sleep during these three days.
Chief Booster Talks.
Mr. Dabney, himself the original
Booster of Richmond, took the floor
as the representative of the Chamber
of Commerce, to which, after the much
talktd-of tour had developed beyond
all expociatla:.i, complete charge of
the trip was turned over by The
Times-Dlepatch.
"We all know what The Times-Dis?
patch has done," be said, "and we have
been told what to do, and now we
must know how to do It. This tour,
exclusively in the Interest of Rich?
mond, was originated by The Times
Dispatch, but it developed Into such
proportions that they gave charge of
it to the Chamber of Commerce, in
which all of us are interested. But
I think it fitting that Mr. St. George
Bryan should give you some explana
as to what It means and as to the pur?
pose for which it Is started." He In?
troduced Mr. Bryan, who, in a few
words, told how the Idea originated,
and what had bc^-n contempltcd when
the tour was first planned.
"We saw." he said, "what other pa?
pers in the country' were doing in the
way of sending boosters' tours through
their territory, and Ihe idea was sug?
gested to us. We went to the Cham?
ber of Commerce and saw Mr. Dabney,
and asked him if he had thought of
arranging for such a tour. He suld
that the idea had occurred to him. But
the arrangements for tho tour as?
sumed such proportions that we turned
the plan over to him, and Mr. Dabney
now has complete charge of the trip.
He will tell you all about It, Inform
I you as to its purpose and give you
the details of the arrangements which
have been made." Mr. Bryan, as tho
promoter of this advertising tour,
which Is to make Richmond more wide?
ly known thun the city ever was be?
fore, was heartily cheered.
Richmond's A.fTnlr.
"You know what a good city we
have." said Mr. Dabney. resuming the
stand, "and we want to tell everybody
about it, for there are a few people
in the world who are not so well ac?
quainted with the good qualities of
this city as are we. I have in an hum?
ble way assumed charge of tiiis Boost?
ers' tour and consented to ia'ckle the
affair, but it must t.e recognized at the
beginning thai this is your affair, the
affair of Richmond, and that we must
all pull together. l^et that be our slo
i gati. for this pulling together in Ihe
Interests of Richmond is the paramount
consideration In this move. All that w-e
shall do will be done for Richmond,
and all will bo benefited by It.
"We leave here at 12: l.r. o'clock Mon
dny morning, and the trip will continue
through three days. Here you will get
I your reservation slips," and he ex
; plained to the Boosters how to come
I up und get their tickets. "We go to
' twenty-live cities." he continued, "and
the question is to go out and get the
greatcs! amount of Rood we. can out
of the time which hua been allotted o
us. My understanding Is that we must
go out nnd tell how wo appreciate the
trade relations of Ihe past and of how
much we desire to continue and to In?
crease them It will be undignified for
us to solicit orders. That, a; T under?
stand It. Is not our purpose. Our prin?
cipal object is to shake hands with tho
man who has been trading with us and
to shake hands equally as cordially
with prospective traders.
Practical llcuUs.
"Vou may expoci to have a great
many complimentary orders given you
In token of tho appreciation the people
will have for us in those towns In
which we stop. North Cnrollna, South
Carolina, Georgia. Alabama and Mis?
sissippi have contributed largely to
the products of our manufacturing
plnnfs, and we must tell them of these
products. Vou must tell the?e peopl*
whom we see, 'If you can't get It in
North C'a*ol!:ia. or If you can't gt it at
home, you can get It in Richmond.
We must break up this habit of peoplo

ORDER TO STRIKE
TO-OAYIS ISSUED
Th is Morning at 10
o'Cl ock Workmen
Will Walk Out.
HARRI MAN LINES
ARE AFFECTED
Officials Say That Railroads Are
in Good Condition to Face
Long Struggle With Labor,
and That Their Shops
Will Be Kept
Going.
I Chicago, 111., September 29.?The
long-threatened strike of shopmen on
' the Harrlman lines. Including the Illi?
nois Central, will became a reality at
10 o'clock to-morrow morning unless
the men. who have twice voted to

j out to-day by the presidents of the I
l live unions directly Involved.
I The union presidents say the men
I ha.\v not weakened in their Intention
j to force the rallrouds to recognize their
newly established federation of shop
I employes by means of a strike, and
I that more than 90 per cent, of the men :
I will quit work. The fight, they say.
Iis likely to prove long drawn out. Th? |
railroads, on the other hartd. say the |
workers do not want to strike and that
a great majority will refuse to leave
their work when the hour Is reached.
Itoadn lo tiood Shape,
The railroads are in good shape to
stand a strike right now. according to
I local officials. A retrenchment order
; recently issued reduced the number
j of employes nearly 25 per cent., and
j there Is a sufficient number of idle
! men in all crafts to permit the roads
to kocp their shops running even If
all of the men go out. This was de
nld to-dtiy by President Kline, of the
Blacksmiths' Union, who said the men
the railroads are counting on to fill
the places of strikers are men who
were laid off recently, are union men
and would refuse to work during a
strike.
The strike order came after consul
jtations over the longdistance telephone
' between President Kline, of the black
I smiths; Prcslaent Ryan, of the carmen,
! and President Franklin, of the boller
: makers, at Kansas City, and President
; O'Connell. of the machinists, of Daven
| port. President O'Sullivan, of the
I sheet metal workers, who already hao
agreed to the time, loft to-day for
Plttsburg, Pa., from where he wll
conduct the fight.
As soon as the day and hour had
j been decided upon, the following mes
] sage was sent to the officers of all tne
l local unions affected:
' "All efforts for settlement failed.
I Mr. Kruttschnltt refusos. AH crafts
! strike Saturday, September 30, at 10 A
M. Letter of Instructions follows. Let
j every man do his duty."
i The chief shops which will be altect
j ed are located In the following cities:

The strike will not affect train sched
! ules, according to G. H. Markham,
; president of the Illnols Central, who
! said to-day that there were ten appll
! cants for every position that will be
I opened with the strike.
Freight H?ndler? Out.
i The clerks' strike, which already has
handicapped shipping on the Illinois
j Central and Yazoo and Mississippi, to
j day spread to the freight handlers In
' New Orleans, 100 men walking out

tho course- of au uodiebs lo-nlglit uu
tho work of tho tariff board, of which
ho In chairman, Professor Henry c.
Emery, of Washington, told the mem?
bers of tho National Association of
Cotton Manufacturers how ho und als
colleagues hud reucliud their ConclU
i ?Ions, particularly 1 urogurd to the
turlff on yuriiB and stuple cotton
goods.
"So tar us these are concerned, we
are confident that our results are uc
curatu and furnish a thoroughly sound
I basis of comparison," he declared.
"Our tlrut problem was to establish
certain general principles of cost ac?
counting as a guide to all our In?
vestigations into different Industries.
The next problem was to adopt these
generul principles In details to the
peculiarities of a particular Industry.
This wus done first for chemicals, thou
for pulp paper and thirdly for cotton.
In the preparation of the cotton
j schedule some weeks were spent by
I our agents. Including statistician*,
; cotton trade experts and accountants
trained in cotton manufacturing, in
studying both the bonks and the pro?
cess at various mills, and their re?
sults were submitted to the board for
final revision. They may not exactly
tit the cost accounting methods of in?
dividual mills, but they come as near
to meeting the requirements of the
industries as a whole as Is practi
| cally possible, and have proved them?
selves easily adaptable to all mills
employing modern cost methods."
I "Resolutions were adopted protesting
against "such hasty and inc.onsldernd
j legislation as that proposed In the
! I'nderwood and La Follette bills, wise?
ly vetoed by President Taft. Legls
1 latlon changing tho tariff should only I
be made after all the. facts relating
to the duty have been presented to
furnish information. We urge that
changes should not be made In any
schedule until tho Information ob?
tained by this board has been sub?
mitted to Congress and given con?
sideration. We deny that our indus?
try Is' over-capitalized or that the re?
turn on the actual capital Invested is
or ever lias been excessive, or that
there is any trust or combination in
any branch of tho business. Tho raw
material Is free and there Is the widest
competition."

London, September 20.?Affairs de?
veloped to-day with extraordinary ra?
pidity. A state of mar exists between
Italy and Turkey, and hostilities nave
begun.
>"o sooner had the time limit fixed
In the ui Monitum expired than. Ignor?
ing Turkey's conciliatory request for o
period of delay, Italy declared war.
The Turkish representatives In Italy
were handed their passports.
The Turkish commander t Tripoli wa?
asked to anrrender the town, but de?
clined, and the Italian forces immedi?
ately occupied Tripoli and BenghasL
Apparently the Turks offered no resist,
ance, bat this Is only an assumption)
as Immediately on landing the Italians
evidently seized the telegraph line*.
From the hour of their landing no
message of any kind has been received
from Tripoli, and dispatches sent to
that place remain unanswered.
It should be noted, however, that a
Constantinople dispatch, announcing
Italian occupation of Tripoli, makes no
mention of resistance, and a mere pro?
test by tho governor would be In line
with Turkey's announced policy.
The Turkish Cabinet, which had been
for some -time Insecure, resigned as
soon as war woa declared, and a new
ministry was formed under Said Pasha,
but retaining the former able war min?
ister, Mahmoud Bhefket Pasha.
Turkey continues her efforts to se?
cure Intervention by the powers. 1b
tho meantime Italy Is actively pursu?
ing hostilities. Italian battleships art
reported to have appeared off Smyrna
and Saloniki. An Italian cruiser land?
ed troops at Prcvesa, after destroying
a Turkish torpedo boat destroyer, and
the Italian fleet has blockaded the
whole Trlpolltan coast.
There are unconfirmed reports that
Turkey Intends to send an ultimatum
to Greece to abandon her claim on
Crete, and Is massing troops on the
Thessallan frontler.
The greatest aotlvity ensued In all
the European chancelleries on the an?
nouncement that war had been de?
clared and notification of a blockade
It Is expected that the Varlbus govern?
ments will Issue the customary neu?
trality notices and will devote theit
diplomatic efforts as far as possiblt
to localizing hostilities to the com?
batant powers and especially to avoid?
ing complications in tire Balkans.
Turks Sink 'Two Barges.
Constantinople, Septembr 29.?Th6
Turkish war ministry, according to the
reports current here to-night, ha6 re?
ceived a dispatch from the late Turkish
military uttache at Paris, who has as?
sumed command of tho forces at Trip?
oli, stating that the Italians began to
disembark this afternoon, but the Turks
succeeded In sinking the ilrst two
barges.
It is rumored also that Italian forces
have landed both at Tripoli and Beng?
hazi. The Turkish Cabinet hae re?
signed. Said Pasha assuming the oflico
of Grand Vizier and Klamll Pasha that
of Foreign Minister. Mahmoud Shef
ket Pasha continues as Minister of
War.
Tho Italian charge. Slgnor Di Mar
lino, handed the Porte this afternoon a
communication intimating the Inten?
tion of Italy to proceed with the meas?
ures foreshadowed In the Ultimatum
This was tantamount to a declaration
of war. and as a state of war would
give Italy greater freedom of action
' in Turkish waters, there Is much ap?
prehension regarding the Turkish w:**,
vessels .it present steaming In the di
: rection of the Dardanelles, lest they are
uaptured by the Italian squadron, which
Is believed to be watching the move?
ments of Turkish ships.
The British embassy here is concern?
ed for the British officers with the
I Turkish squadron and is Instructing its
government fpr their recall.
Tho question of the protection ol
Italian subjects is engaging the at?
tention of the Italian authorities. It
Is thought that a roquest will be
mat!,- to, Germany to undertake th?
protection ? tho Italian escutcheons.
The national' emblems have, been re?
moved from the embassy, the consu?
late, the post-office and the schools,
with a view to preventing untoward
Incidents.
The newspaper* publish the state?
ment that Italian battleships have ap?
peared off Smyrna and Saloniki.
