RESULTSjERIOBSLY Four Men Engage in a Knife Fight at Fargo This Morning. INDULGED IN TOO MUCH BOOZE Special to The Evening Tlmea. Fargo, N. D„ Aug. 11—A bad cutting affray occurred on the south bridge, between here and Moorhead, about 1 o'clock this morning. Four men were engaged in the scrap. John Johnsou, a barber of lower Front street, and Chas. Myers of Decorah, la., who came up to work In the harvest fields, were badly cut in the face. The two who did the ugly work escaped. They arc strangers and apparently the assault was premeditated. It appears that the four met at Moorhead and all drank more than was good for them and ths two strangers got into a quarrel witn Johnson and Myers. They left for Fargo first and waited for Johnson and Myers at the Moorhead approach to the south bridge. On the arrival of their victims they assaulted them with knives and cut them up in a horrible manner in the face. Johnson receiv ed a terrible gash across the right under jaw, severing two arteries. Myers was cut near the mouth, receiv ing a gash about two and a half inches long clear through into the mouth, but cutting no large arteries. The cries of the men frightened their assailant, who ran before the police could arrive. The two injured men managed to make their way to Dr. Mallarian's office, where their wounds were dress ed as quickly as possible. Both bled profusely, but the condition of John son is the more serious on account of the severing of the arteries. It required some time to stop the flow of the blood and his injuries may re sult fatally. The condition of Myers is more favorable. Deputy Sheriff Bingham took the two men to the county jail this morning about 3:30, that being the best place at the time for them. So far the police have been unable to apprehend the ones who did the cutting. y»ir #r THIS WEATHER. North Dakota. Fair and warmer to night. Sunday, (air, warmer In east por tion. WEDNESDAY.

NICHOLAIEVITCH NAME OF THE DUKE Shower of Bullets Rained About His Head—Plot Among Soldiers Being Investigated. Aaaoelated Preaa Cable to The Evening Tlmea. St. Petersburg, Aug. 11.—Grand Duke Nicholas Nicholaievitch, presi dent of the council of national defense, narrowly escaped assassination yes terday afternoon, at the hands of the imperial guards in Guard camp at Krasnoye, Selo. Thus far the Asso ciated Press has only been able to obtain meagre details of the affair, from which it appears that the grand duke was personally reviewing the maneuvering and putting troops through blank firing practice, when he suddenly was startled by wasp-like hiss of bullets about his head. Fortun ately neither himself nor his horse was touched. Command to cease fir ing was immediately given and the soldiers of the regiment from which the bullets came, were marched back to their quarters and investigating was begun in the hope of ascertaining from the barrels of the rifles which of the soldiers fired ball cartridges. Several arrests are understood to have been made. One of the grand duke's aid de camp, who, however, was not personally present, advanced to the Associated Press the theory that pos sibly the bullets were fired by acci dent, but he considered that beyond doubt there was a plot on the part of a number of the disloyal guardsmen, who deliberately planned to take the grand duke's life under cover of gen eral blank cartridge firing.

NO BLAME ATTACHES TO DRIVER Special to The Evening Tlmea. Fargo, Aug. 11.—A most unfortunate accident occurred last evening on i\\ Broadway when Edward Dodd, the little messenger boy employed at the Western Union office, was struck by the tongue of the Metropole bus which was en route to the Great Northern depot. He was knocked down but the team parted to such an extent that he was not stepped upon or probably would have been instantly killed. He was taken to St. John's hospital, where it was learned that, lie was injured internally. The attending physicians operated on the boy. but the shock was too great, and he died at 3 o'clock this morning. There are various opinions as to where the blame should lie laid, while others maintain there is none. The lad was riding south, in the snake fashion, on his bicycle. He was yelled to by the bus driver. Geo. C. Gardner, and swerved to the right to pass, it is thought that he swung too far and that in order to miss the curb he turned back some. At the same time the street car came up behind him. which probably confused him. At any rate he was struck by the tongue of the rig, which was boing driven at a fast trot and ran by him several rods before the driver could stop the horses. The horses passed on each side of him and the rig escaped also. The tongue struck him in the stomach, which, except a slight bruise on the forehead was the only place he was hurt. The bicycle was smashed into a wreck. The driver is stricken with grief as a result. Many who saw the accident maintain that he is blameless. Sheriff Ferguson of Lariiuore was in the rig and at the depot stated he had seen the accident and volunteered bis name should the driver be called to aecount. TIMES FRIDAY. T.

HIIIE BEEN ISSOEO Special Grand Jury Probable in Chicago Bank Failure Case. DEPOSITORS CREATE A SCENE Aaaoelated Preaa to The Evening Tlmea. Chicago, Aug. 11.—Preliminary ac tion by the states attorney's office against those responsible for the fail ure of the Milwaukee Avenue State bank was begun today. Assistant States Attorney Olson was busy sev eral hours preparing bench warrants which it was expected would be taken out later in the day before Judge Smith of the criminal court. Olson would not say for whom warrants were being taken out or how many was being issued. He later communi cated with John C. Fetzer, receiver of the bank, and Police Inspector Shippy and instructed the latter to obtain the books of the bank and bring them to his office. It is probable that a special grand jury will be summoned and the matter placed before it. The police were today summoned to keep order at the inquest into the cause of the death of Frank Kowalski, teller of the Milwaukee Avenue State bank, who shot himself yesterday evening at his home. The feeling of some of the de positors in the defunct bank was so great that the dead teller was cursed as his body lay in the parlor of his home. The wreath on the door of I his home was torn down and its flowers scattered by the angry men. Sergeant Hamilton, detailed at the eoronei's inquest, forced the disturb ers into the street. A policeman was then stationed at the door to prevent any person not wanted from entering the home. Ten warrants in the Milwaukee Avenue State bank case were issued this afternoon by Judge Ketsten in the absence of Judge Smith. The first two charge conspiracy to cheat and de fraud the Milwaukee Avenue State bank of its money, property and goods. Paul O. Stensland. Henry W. Hering, Theodore Stensland and "divers other persons as yet unknown," are named in these two warrants. The next two are against Henry W. Hering and charge perjury in regard to the report made and sworn to by him, to the state auditor in January and April, 1906, on the condition of the bank. The next two charges the larceny of $1,000 and |350 and names Henry W. Hering. Five cases of forgery are then charged aginst Paul O. Stensland and Henry W. Hering.

Labuy to one note for $5,800, the name of Marcus Kirkeby to one note for $10,000 and the name of Herhold to ope note for 910,000.

AT Steamer Troy, 5,000 Ton Steel Freighter, Wrecks Interstate Bridge at 1 0'Clock This Morning in a Collision. SPAN PRECIPITATED TO LAKE'S BOTTOM Communication Between Duluth and Superior by Car and Team is £hut Oft'. Special to The Evening Tlmea. Duluth, Minn., Aug. 11.—At 1 o'clock this morning the steamer Troy, a 5,000 ton steel package freighter, own ed by the Western Transit company, collided with a span of the Interstate bridge and precipitated it into the channels on either side of the center pier on which the span revolved. Navigation to and from the upper har bor, the most active portion of the head of the lakes, is blocked. The span was about one-third open at the time of the crash. The accident is the most disastrous that has ever hap pened in the Duluth-Superior harbor. The wrecked bridge lies in such a manner as to block the channel on both sides of the center pier so that it is impossible even for a tug to pass. The street railway and team traffic between Duluth and Superior is cut off and will be for some time to come. Forty steamers now in the upper harbor are cut oft from returning to the lake or to the Duluth side of the harbor .and also to most of the coal docks on the upper harbor, also many of the grain elevators, merchandise docks and shipyard on the Superior side. Water communication with all this is cut off. The greater part of the tonnage of the Duluth-Superior harbor originates in Alouez bay, where the dock of the Duluth Missabe and Northern road is located. Therefore, many thousand tons of ore will be held up until the channel is cleared up. It Is asserted that the bridge cannot be put in commission again this season, although the span now blocking the movement of many steamers, will be removed as soon as possible, con servatively estimated at two days. Estimates of financial loss to the bridge alone vary from $100,000 to $200,000. The bridge when built was bonded for $900,000 and cost approx imately $1,000,000. The pier which held the balanced draw span is not badly injured, and it is believed that with salvage subtracted, the actual loss will not exceed $100,000. KING EDWAROTO MEET THE KAISER Monarchs of England and Ger many Will Have Shakefest This Month. DIFFERENCES TO BE PATCHED UP Aaaoelated Preaa Cable to The Evening Tlmea. London, Aug. 11.—With the windup of the regatta week at Cowes, King Edward is preparing to leave for his annual summer sojourn on the con tinent. It is expected that he will depart early in the coming week, with Marienbad, Bohemia, as his objective point. It is announced that he will stay, as usual, at the Hotel Weimar, for three weeks. It is probable, how ever, that this plan will be modified so that the king may hold his much discussed meeting with Emperor Wil liam at Hamburg at an early date. The political press, in view of the talked of Isolation of Germany among the powers of Europe at the present time, is seeking to attach great signifi cance to this meeting between the two rulers. In semi-official circles the meeting is not regarded as of any political significance. About the only conclusion that can reasonably be drawn from it, in the minds of per sons usually well informed, is that the personal differences that have separated King Edward and his im perial nephew for some time have beea patched up and that the coolness be tween them no longer existB.
