Nov. 7.—Thornton V Jenkins Hams, in his cell in the -*-' Queens county jail, made a statement today in which he gavo ad ditional details of the circumstances immediately preceding and leading up to'the murder of William E. Annis by Capt. Peter C, Halns, jr., at Bayside, Long Island. Thornton Hams was present at the time of the shooting and is charged with having assisted his brother in the commission of the crime by holding off, at the point of a revolver, members of the Bayside Yacht club who had at tempted to go to the assistance, of Annis. Both brothers are under indictment for murder in the first degree. While Thornton Hams, unshaven, collarless and with a strand of rope about his waist, doing duty as a la borer, was relating his story, the cap tain, gaunt and unkempt, stood less than ten feet away, his long monkish bath robe trailing the floor, his eyes staring fixedly at the White walls of his prison. He took no part in the conver sation. • .',* > ::* Wants "Truth Told" "There have been so many untruths -circulated concerning Peter and my self," said Thornton Hams, that I must ask the Associated Press to set us right In the eyes of the world. I am not a desperado and neither is Peter. "On the day of the shooting I im agined, Annis to be in Mount Vernon. Neither Peter nor I had any Idea that we would run across him at Bayside. Ever since the terrible night when my brother's wife admitted her wrong doings with Annis I had been Peters constant companion. • "Gen. Halns feared Peter would kill himself and so he gave him over into my keeping. I took him with me to live and in order to taku his mind off his troubles I took him out with me days at a time, cruising In a little motor boat that I had. ' „ .. "They have made much of the fact that we went armed," he continued. "As far as Peter is concerned I did not know he had a gun. Realized a Bit Too Late "It was not until after he had used it on Annis that I realized the situa tion. As for me, the gun I had was the same I carried for fourteen years. Most of my life has been spent at sea, where primitive passions rule and men In their cups need more than words to subdue them. ■ ' "They have also said that when we arrived at the yacht club our first move was to ask where Annis was. There was never anything said further from the truth. We -had not been on the ground long, however, before the name of Annis came to our ears. I imme diately began to urge Peter to come away. He could not be persuaded, and "after a while I gave up trying. V - Did Not Like Him "It was so unexpected, and It all hapened so quickly that I was power less, to Interfere. As soon as Annis came up to the float, Peter opened fire It was over In a second. A doz en men 'rushed for him and I saw the big boatman grab him by the throat and swing his fist to strike him. It was'then I pulled my gun.' c "i certainly had no feelings of af fection or regard for Annis, but I had saved him from being shot by Peter once before, and I would have done so again, If I had a chance. .' •'. . "The night that Peter's wife made the I written acknowledgment of her misconduct with Annis, she urged that I get word to Annis of what had hap pened. Annis was expected at the fort the next day and she wished to warn him to stay away. She' wrote the letter and gave it to me to mail. "Peter had seen her give me Ojf letter, however,*- and guessed to whom it was addressed. Before I could re monstrate with him he had torn it open and read its contents. It said:. " 'All Is over between Peter and me; he knows everything. Don't come to morrow.' -r«aMf "Peter put the letter in his pocket and said: 'I want him to come. I have something to say to him.' Tone Told Intention ' "From his tone, I knew that he meant to shoot Argils on sight. I de termined that the only way to pre vent a meeting between the two was 'to drug Peter. I went to Dr. Wilson, the post surgeon, and got him to give me a double dose of chloral. "When we got back to the house I persuaded Peter to ■ take it, keeping him in Ignorance of what it was. When Annis came the next day Peter: was still under the influence of the opiate. Annis saw Peter's wife and left again for New York. Twenty minutes after he had gone Peter awoke." __, .

BULL ATTACKS ZOO EMPLOYE SOFT EARTH AND HAY MANGER SAVE HIS LIFE Infuriated Animal Tries to Gore Vic tim, Then Tosses Him Into Air. Escapes with Severely Wrenched Arm Frank Leroyxez, an employe at the Chutes park zoo, narrowly escaped being gored to death yesterday by an infuriated zebu bull. That the ground into which he was trampled was soft and that he was thrown into a man ger of hay, probably saved his life. Leroyxez entered the inclosure to clean up, when the bull suddenly at tacked him and knocked him down, breaking the handle of the rake which the man carried and with which he attempted to defend himself. The bull first attempted to gore Le royxez with his horns, and then sud denly tossed him into the air. Le royxez landed ten feet away, falling ln the manger. Before the bull could reach, him he scrambled up the big bars in front of the Inclosure and safely went over* the top. His left arm was wrenched so se verely he will bo unable to use It for several days. At first it was thought he was injured internally, but he in sisted on returning to work later in the day.

FIRST NATIONAL KEYSTONE STATE BANK IS CLOSED PENNSYLVANIA INSTITUTION IS SUSPENDED MANY DEPOSITORS ARE LABOR. ERS AND ARE ALARMED Various Rumors in Circulation at New Kensington and Big Scandal Ex. • pected —Hope Expressed Doors Will Open \TEW KENSINGTON, Pa., Nov. 7.— NEW close of business today At the close ci. business today •A-" National Bank Examiner Cun ningham posted a notice on the doors of the First National bank of this place that the bank had been closed by order of the comptroller of the currency. This action, it is said, was a surprise not only to the depositors but to the officials of the bank. No reason is assigned. At the time of its last statement the bank had $300,000 in deposits. It was organized in 1893 with a capital of $50,000 and surplus of $10,000, and has since considerably expanded. ".'_ The directors will confer tomorrow with Mr. Cunningham. The belief is expressed that the bank will reopen next week. All Appeared Normal Everything appeared in a normal condition when the bank closed, al though many rumors of shortages have since been circulated. It Is reported that at the last regular examination there was a flaw In the accounts, later adjusted. This is de nied. Rumors late tonight are to the effect that the bank has violated the state laws and that a big" scandal is pending. A great many depositors will be af fected If the bank Is unable to pay off, as many of its patrons are laboring people. Directors of the bank stated tonight the bank would reopen, and professed ignorance as to the cause of the failure, but gave evasive answers when ques tioned as to the rumors. There is considerable excitement as a result of what is feared may be per manent insolvency. _, _ __ SWEEPS LEMON OVER CITY'S MAIN STREETS P. H. Muellers Rolls the Citrus Fruit by Means of a Broom in Order to Pay an Election Wager "Roll that lemon, Pete." "Is the man crazy?" "No, just a trifle off; he voted for the Commoner." Such are the remarks that fell on the ears of P. H. Muellers, who, to pay off a freak election bet made with J. L. Klelnpeters, swept a lemon over the streets from the tailor shop of Mr. Klelnpeters,- on Spring and Third streets, up Third to Broadway, out Broadway to Second, down Second to Spring and back to the tailor shop, where he threw down the broom and lemon, demaaning the $5 he had de posited as a forfeit if he failed to pay the debt. Pinned to the back of the man with the lemon was a large red Placard dec orated with cream silk ribbon, which bore in large white letters the words, "I voted for ■ Bryan. Wasn't I a rummy?" As he went around the block, the winner of the wager followed close at his heels, but Mr. Muellers didn't seem to mind It In the least. "I told you so," shouted one man from the throng which followed him. "That's all right," he responded. "If they run old Blllle In 1!>12 I'll vote for him again," and he added under his breath, "but I don't swear how I'll bet." One youngster about 7 years old, who sells papers on the streets, didn't seem to agree with the politics of Mr. Muel lers, and at the corner of Broadway and Second street he dealt the plan rd a heavy blow with his right arm. Muel lers slapped him on the head with his broom, smiled and kept on rolling his lemon. "I don't care," ho said; "I'd rather do this than to roll a wheelbarrow. It is far more dignified and less weari some." Mr. Muellers proved hir-self a prac tical philosopher. He refused to go on the street, with the lemon until the last minute was us, but when Klein peters handed him the broom and lemon he walked to the middle of the street as calm and collected as most condemned murderers go from the cell to the gallows. • SIX MEN ARE KILLED BY ROUNDHOUSE EXPLOSION Railway Engine Boiler Blows Up in Superior, Wis., While Men Are ' X.

GERMANY ACCEPTS FORMULA BUT WANTS REGRET CLAUSE PARIS, Nov. 7.—Germany, it was learned here today, at first refused to accept the formula proposed by France for settlement of the Casa Blanca In cident, proposing at the same time certain modifications therein. These were rejected by France in her turn after which Germany declined to re-examine the formula. Last night Herr yon Schoen, the German foreign secretary, informed Ambassador Cam bon the French formula was satisfac tory, "provided a clause was added In which France expressed her regret for the violence committed on the person of the German consular attache," Ger many at the same time expressing re gret that the German consul had "ex ceeded his powers in offering protec tion to deserters from the foreign legion of the French . army who were not German subjects." Ambassador Cambon politely but firmly declined (to transmit such a proposition to Paris, explaining that his instructions did not permit him to re celve any proposition involving censure of the French action. He-rr yon Schoen thereupon agreed again to examine, the French formula. The final response. from Germany is not expected before Tuesday. » The publication of the following statfement was authorized today: Authorized Statement "France remains entirely conciliatory. We don't desire to hold to the strict interpretation of wording. We are will ing to make any concessions -in the matter of the formula suggested by us that Germany deems necessary to save appearances, provided this does not prejudice the case or involve indirect or direct censure of the action of our officers and soldiers at Casa Blanea, who, we are convinced,. are in the right. •. •< .
