NEW ORLEANS July n Two desper
ate shooting affairs following each other
In rapid succession in which three police
men Including Capt John Day recognized
as one cf the ablest men on the force were
lillcd ly Robert Charles a hae
caused the profoundest sensation Known
here since the assassination of Chief of
Tolico Ilenncssy by the Mafia There is a
fciiu o raft feeling and bitterness espe
cially since it has been learned that
Charles was an agitator and has been dis
tributing literature calling on the crushed
and trampled spirit of the blacks to as
sert itself It is this fact that makes the
triple murder different from others of the
Game kind here and may lead to increas
ing the already somewhat strained rela
tions between the whites and negroes
Tor some time past there hive been
frequent burglaries committed in this city
supposed to be by negroes About mid
night last night several negro women
called attention to two suspicious negroes
In Dryades Street near Washington Street
as possible burglars Sergeant Auckin
with two policemen went after the ne
groes There were a few words exchanged
when the negroes suddenly drew revolvers
and opened fire on the ofiiccrs
One of the negroes subsequently identi
fied as Charles wounded Policeman August
Mora fatallv Charles who vas slightly
wounded escaped during the sheeting The
other negro Leonard Tierce was captured
but only after a desperate struggle Pierce
refused at first to betraj his friend but
finally told where Charles lived
Captain Day who commands the pre inct
started at one for the pUcs with Srgcant
Auckin anij Policeman Perrier and svcia
hotel detectives It w as Ehoti aftr J

which opens on an allev Day and Aukin
led the way up the alley followed by Fo
lieem3n Lamb and Trcn hard They 1a p d
03 tie door of Charlea room Another door
suddenly opened azd from this Ccarles
fired en the police His first shot htC p
tain Daj In the shoulder shattering it A
second shot struck the captain in ttc be d
and he fell over face forward The third
bullet struck Lamb in the head gong
through his brain
The negro kept on firirg with such pre
cision from behind the p otection of the
door that the other policemen retreacd
Charles then stepped from his room to
where the bodj of Captain Da lay and
cursing blm fired three fhtts Into the
body of the dead or dying man He then
opened fire on Co poral Terrier at the other
end of the alley The poliro surrounded
the house fired a number of shots into K
but waited for daj light to capture Cha Ics
At daylight they broke into the houe
only to find that Charles had escaped His
trunk was broken open and it wa found
to contain a Jarge amount ol liteiature en
the race question including a number cf
pamphlets on the negroes and Liberia by
D J Plummer a ccpy of the national icng
of Columbia with Columbia stricken
ojt by Charles and Africa substituted
and various certificates and papers shoe
ing that Charles had decided to go to Li
beria and also that he had organized a
Lfberian eocletv in New Orleans and po
posed to take fifteen hundred emigrants 10
Boodhounds were put on Charles track
and followed the trail for some distance to
a houBe where Charles had changed his
coat aad shirt leaving his bloody gar
ments behind The trail was lost there
60 bitter was the popular feeling on the
subject that a white man in tse neighbor
hood who declared that Cnarles ought
to be given a fair show and that a ie
gro was as human 23 a white man was
set upon by the mob and saved from a
threatened lynching onlj by the Interfer
ence of the police The white man was
taken by the police to Jail for protection
There he gave his name as Ed J Mc
Carthy and sail that he was a seaman
from New York
The mob at times showed a vindictive
cplrlt and there were threats of burn
ing the house in which Chailes had lived
Later In the day the police searched Ae
house where Leonard Pierce lived and 1
found various Liberlan pamphlets of much
the same character es in Charlca room Os
Pierces person they found forty car
About noon a large mob surrounded the
police jail where Pierce was confined and
threats were made to storm the jail nd
lynch the negro The police howeer an
ticipated the troublo and remove the
prisoner to the parish prison which Is
safe from the attacks of a mob
A party of six negroes who were re
ported to have said that more policemen
ought to be killed were chased by the
mob The negroes were finally captured

there has been no resumption of yester

it is high lino for the powers to awake to
the fact -that the are not fighing th
Boxers alone but a China such as Ihe
world never sav before a China eouipped
with plentj of modern rifles and powerful
guns and with men able to shoot
This is no holiday pleasure excursion
against dervish like fanatics carrying
spears aiid swords On the contrary it
is a business like war in which China is
showing tremendous advancement as a
fighting power and in which she Is dis
playing unexpected strength for the rea
son that she is acting alone and Inde
pendent of agreement between a lot of
heterogeneous elements The great neces
sity is celerity on tho part of the poAjrs
In putting an end to the trouble he
Chinese are an inhuman foe They t fce
no prisoners and horribly mutilate vuo
The military situation cf the allies docs i
not promise well under present conditions
though there is the greatest harmuny
among the commanders and they are
on the best terms with one another Valu
able time however is lost through mere
politeness The anomalous situation can
not be better shown than by the absence
of a general headquarters After the re
cent heavj night firing it took ill the
next diy to ascertain what had happened
it being netcssary to visit eight different
headquarters ail widely scattered
Anomaly Is also shown in the communica
tions with Tongku each nation having its
own Nobody Is rebuilding the railroad
Meanwhile the foreigners in Pekin are
desperately in need of help but it is cer
tain that no relief can start In less than
three weeks and progress then will be
very slow The rains are beginning now
and the roads will soon be impassable for
army transportation It will be absolutely
necessary to rebuild the railways Every
days delay makes the matters more diffi

American interests here urgently appeal
for more American trocps It Is in this
belt of China where American trade Is the
largest Tientsin la now practically in a
state of siege rood is scarce and prices
are out of sight The banks arc shut and
no money can be obtained The merchants
are net trying to secure more suDplies be
cause those that they have obtained are
frequently commandeered by the enemy
The tugs have all been seized
The cond ion of Tientsin is such as to
render an epidemic mast probable and the
situation is very dtficult to handle
