South Bethlehem, Pa., Feb. 26.—
With one man dead from a bullet
fired by a state policeman, with two
others suffering from slight pistol
wounds, and with more than a dozen
men nursing injuries inflicted by the
heavy riot sticks of the troopers,
South Bethlehem tonight is appre
hensive of what next week has in
store for it. There were no pitched
battles during the day between the
hundreds of Hungarians and the
mounted police, but the situation
was at times' so critical that serious
outbreaks were narrowly averted.
The man killed today was Joseph
Sambo, said to be on9 of the men onthat
strike at the Bethlehem steel works.
He was on the edge of a crowd that
was being dispersed by the troopers
shortly after their hurried trip here
from Philadelphia. The troopers
had been summoned during last
night and were patrolling the
streets in the vicinity of the steel
works when a shower of bricks were
hurled at them by a crowd of for
eigners. The troop captain ordered
his men to fire into the air, it is said

gone to the president and had made
a vigorous protest.
The restorations by Ballinger were
made without any investigation of
the subject whatever, said Mr. Pin
chot and he charged the secretary
with having deliberately ordered the
officers of the reclamation service,
against their will, to recommend
some of the restorations should
be made. Pinchot declared that Di
rector Newell of the reclamation ser
vice would be called as one of his
witnesses to prove his charges
against Ballinger. Former Secre
tary of the Interior Jas. R. Garfield,

'of Pinchot's backers.

A drain was constructed some
years ago and an opening was cut

river as an outlet to the ditch. The
thing had a recoil, however, and the

through the hole in the bank every
time the stream went on a rampage.
It is now decided to construct a dam

The Tongue river difficulties can
be relieved with dredging if the
drainage board decides to act.
"Bismarck is growing rapidly,"
said Mr. Atkinson. "The people of
the city are pulling together and,
working for the interests of the cap
ital. There will be between $500,000
and $750,000 spent in new buildings
this year. These figures include the
federal building and the new city
hall. There are a number of other
enterprises. The new structure for
the International Harvester Co. will
be the largest in the state and Ed.
