NEGRO KILLS FIVE
IN LOVEMGE MRS. MAMAH BORTHWICK ANC TWO CHILDREN SLAIN NEAR SPRING GREEN, WIS. MURDEREP USES HATCHET Wounds Four More in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bungalow—Found Hid „ Ing In the Fire Sox of Heating Plant. - Spring Green, Wis., Aug. 17.—Five dead, two dying and three injured are the victims of an infuriated negro who wielded his blood dripping ax because he had been discharged as cook in the “love cottage” made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright and his “soul mate," Mrs. Mamah Bouton Borthwick. One lone negro, Julian Carlton, in the guise of a death dealing monster, was the man who on Saturday slew his employer, her children, servants and helpmates of her husband, one of the greatest architects in the nation, and then fired the building. The dead are: MISS MAMMAH BORTHWICK, aged 35, who was Mrs. Edwin H. Che ney, until Wright fled with her from Chicago to his hilltop studio here two years ago. JOHN CHENEY, aged 12, her son. MARTHA CHENEY, aged 9, her daughter. EMIL BRODELLE, aged 26, Milwau kee, draughtsman employed by Wnght. ERNEST WESTON, aged 15, son of William Weston, foreman at the Wright home. The injured are; Tom Brunkert, aged 60, laborer, Spring Green, head laid open and burned, will die. David Lindbohm, gardener, badly cut about head; dying. William Weston, aged 65, foreman, badly cut on head, will recover. Herbert Fritz, aged 23, draughts man, badly burned, will recover. The wholesale murder took place during the noon meal and early in the night the negro was chptured when Sheriff John T. Williams of Dodgeville found him hiding in the firebox of the boiler in the cellar of the “love cottage." Mrs. Borthwick and her two chil dren, John and Margaret, were eating dinner on the north of the bungalow, a meal which the negro and his wife had prepared. Without a word of warning Carlton crept upon the un suspecting trio, sinking the hatchet into Mrs. Borthwick's brain, practi cally splitting her head in two parts. She dropped to the floor, dead. The two children started to run, but the powerful black was too swift for them, catching both and killing them with a few blows of his ax. Carlton rushed back into the house, and threw a blazing can of gasoline into the dining room where the em ployes on the Wright estate were sit ting at the table. The fire shut off all escape from the dining room except by a single window, and outside this exit the bloodthirsty negro had sta tioned himself. As the inmates climbed out of the window, Carlton swung his ax with unerring aim and them low. Brodeile and Weston were instantly killed as they tried to climb out. Brunker made a quick dash and got by the negro with slight in jury, but the black pursued him and chopped him down. Neighboring farmers wera attract ed by the flames bursting from the bungalow, and a bucket brigade extin guished the fire after the entire east wing had been consumed. Sheriff Williams was searching in the basement of the bungalow and heard Carlton’s voice crying for wa ter. He located the slayer in the heating plant firebox, where he still gripped the bloody ax. Threats of lynching Carlton were made by the large crowd attracted to the scene, but the officers drew weapons and placed the negro in an automobile, taking him to the Dodgeville jail. The Wright bungalow became famous when the noted architect and Mrs. Borthwick took up their resi dence there in December, 1911, soon after a series of sensational events in Oak Park, a fashionable Chicago sub urb, that caused the breaking up of two homes. Wright and Mrs. Borth wick, then Mrs. Cheney, eloped to Eu rope in 1910, and upon their return Mrs. Cheney secured a divorce. The coming of the couple to their lowa county “love cottage” aroused the neighborhood and there were threats of a raid on the bungalow at that time. Dr. W. S. Lincoln of Dodgeville, who is attending the negro, announced that he would probably die from the effects of the muriatic acid which he took after hiding in the furnace Aged Woman's Burns Fatal. La Crosse. —From the results of the explosion of a gasoline stove, over which she was preparing a meal, Mrs. Mary Moulis, 77 years old, sustained burns which caused her death.

Help was sent from this city to fight the flames. Coal Receipts Increase.

S. IS REASSURED Mikado’s Officials Prom ise to Safeguard the American Interests Tokio, Aug. 17.—Japan sent an ultimatum to Germany Saturday night at eight o’clock demanding the with drawal of German warships from thp Orient a."d the evacuation of Kiau- Chau ana giving Germany until Sun day, *ug. 23, to comply with the de mand. Otherwise, the ultimatum states, Japan will take action. The general expectation here is that the ultimatum will be followed by war. To Guard U. S. Interests. Takaski Kato, the Japanese for eign minister, simultaneously with the dispatch of the ultimatum, con ferred with George W. Guthrie, the American ambassador, and made to him a broad statement calculated to assure the United States that Ameri can interests in the far east w r ould be’ safeguarded and the integrity of China upheld. Owing to doubts whether com munications with Berlin were as sured, Japan, in order to insure the arrival of the ultimatum, forw'arded it to Berlin by six channels, Includ ing Washington, London and Stock holm. The government also notified Count von Reed, the German ambas sador to Japan, and likewise re tarded tjje time limit for a reply until Aug. 23. Text of Ultimatum, ''v The ultimatum follows: “We consider it highly important and necessary in the present situa tion to take measures to remove the causes of all disturbances of the peace In the far east and to safeguard the general interests as contemplated by the agreement of aliances between Japan and Great Britain. “In'order to secure a firm and en during peace In eastern Asia, the establishment of which is the aim of the said agreement, the imperial Japanese government sincerely be lieves it to be its duty to give the ad vice to the imperial German govern ment to carry out the following two propositions: Must Withdraw at Once. “First, to withdraw immediately from Japanese and Chinese waters German men of war and armed ves sels of all kinds and to disarm at once those which can not be so with drawn. , “Second, to deliver on a date not later than Sept. 15 to the imperial Japanese authorities without condi tion or compensation the entire leased territory of Kiau-Chau with a view to the eventual restoration of the same to China. Week Given for Answer. “The imperial Japanese goverr ment announces at the same tiire that in the event of It not receiving by noon on Aug. 23, 1914, aD an swer from the imperial German gov ernment signifying its uncor ditional acceptance of the above advice of- Wilson Requests.

IT—The crew of the 1 Italian steamer Algiers report that fered by the imperial Japanese gov ernment, Japan will be compelled to take such action as she may deem necessary to meet the situation.” Japan's Reasons for Acting. Inspired utterances express regret at the inability to maintain neu trality, but say that Great Britain, the ally of Japan, is compelled to de fend herself against the aggressions of Germany. Moreover, it is pointed out that Germany is making prepara tions day and night at Kiau-Chau, where it is storing provisions, while its warships are scouring the seas of eastern Asia to the great detriment of commerce, and that its converted cruisers are seizing English mer chant vessels. Such actions, it is argued, are directly calculated to dis turb the peace of eastern Asia and accordingly, after full and frank cr.inmunGa.ion with Britain, Japan has found herself compelled to send an ultimatum to Germany. MINE BLOWS UP STEAMER About 150 Passengers and Crew Lose Their Lives When Austrian Liner Goes Down. - - * London, Aug. 15. —About 150 of the passengers and crew of the Austrian Lloyd steamer Baron Gautsch were killed or drowned vhen the vessel was blown up today by a mine off the Island of Lussin, on the Dalmatian coast, according to a Reuter dispatch from Trieste.

KAISER LEAVES FOR FRONT Departure of Emperor for War Zone Evokes Enthusiasm in Berlin. Armies Being Marshaled for Great Battle. London, Aug. 18. —A dispatch trem Brussels states that the German cav alry has advanced within thirteen miles of that city, that measures for the defense of Brussels are being hastened, and that the seat of govern ment has been removed to Antwerp. It is expected that the legations will follow the government to Antwerp, but the French minister will remain in Brussels, sending the counselor to Antwerp to keep in touch with the Belgian government. Brussels, practically an unfortified city, resounds to the noise of picks and shovels as 25,000 soldiers and civilians alike are working to strength en the defenses. The government is preparing for a long siege, and every thing possible is being done to enable the city to hold out for months against a German artillery attack. Depends Upon Allies. The government hopes to hold the capital at Antwerp by the combined strength of the allied armies behind the fortifications. The removal of the capital to that city indicates that the Belgian war office Realizes the German troops have made' great gains through the country to the south and east of the capital, and goes on the theory that the German advance is as method ical as a machine. The French casualities in the fight ing between Narnur and Dinant were heavy as the Germans were strongly entrenched and their artillery at the outset played great havoc with the French. The French wing had been badly cut up and nearly routed when suddenly the strains of the Marsellaise sounded in the French lines and the men rallied and reformed. With splendid gallantry they charged, hurl ing themselves on the German troens, breaking through their lines and put ting them to flight. Make Daring Dash. A daring dash of German cavalry to Wavre, thirteen miles from Brus sels Sunday, is announced by the Bel gian war office The Germans were checked after a skirmish of no great importance and withdrew.

London, Aug. 17.—Despite the re ported repulses which they have suf fered, the German battalions con tinue to move forward for a decis ive encounter. While there has been a lull in the fighting in northern Belgian, the in vaders are sweeping along the valley of the Meuse, south of Namur and have reached Dinrr't, where part of a strong French force, which is es tablished behind that town, took the offensive and defeated them. The incident shows that the French crossed the Belgian frontier to join hands with their allies not a moment too soon. Vanguards in Contact. All along the Alsace-Lorraine fron tier, the advance guards of the two opposing armies have come into con tact. Strong French forces are now in possession of all the passes of the Vosges mountains, from the west as far as those leading down to Colmar.

At the same time the text of the declaration of war between France against Austria, which was "ransmit ted on Monday, was made public in Paris. The fact that Great Britain deferred her declaration of war against Aus tria until now is believed to indicate that she meant to utilize the delay to get her Mediterranean fleet ready for action, and an attack upon the Aus trian ships as well as the Austrian port of Pola may now be expected any minute. Reports from Italy indicate that the combined English and French fleets are ready to engage the Aus trian. who are said to have taken up position near Pola.
