make satisfactory progress there aginst
the odds offered, and we will now help
them with a state campaign. Our inten

tents to accommodate. 5,000 men. Dur
ing the strike the union men and their
families will pay no rent- Provisions
will be shipped in from the outside, and
;they will be able to make a fight for
whet they want. At the present time
the building industry of Los Angeles
Is paralyzed and the movement will
shortly become general."

Three Shot, Two Fatally, in
Clash Between Ong Leongs
and Four Brothers .
NEW YORK, June 26. — The tong war.
which sleeps, but never dies. In spite of
threats, promises and solemn treaties,
broke out today in Chinatown. In 90
seconds *three Chinese were shot, two
of them fatally, a third was painfully
wounded, and more than 40 shots from
heavy caliber revolvers spattered
against the bricks or pavements. In
three minutes following seven Chinese
were arrested.
It happened that the two thousandth
anniversary of the founding of the So
ciety of the Four Brothers fell on this
day and in its honor the members were
to give a banquet in Pell street at 5
It was in the midst of a restless,
shuffling throng, sown thick with po
licemen that the shooting began. There
is no certainty of the precise provoca
tion, but it is generally understood In
Chinatown that the Ong Leong tong did
not relish the fact that Chu Han, re
cently acquitted of the murder of an
Ong Leong tong man, was to be the
guest of honor.
The Hip Sing tong, the Ong Leong
tong and the Four Brothers each oc
cupy their own street, and no prudent
member of one society trespasses on
the territory of another. Pickets had
been posted today at the end of Pell
street by the Four Brothers and scouts
of the Ong Leong tong patrolled the
adjacent boundary of Mott street.
Somebody stepped over the line.
Somebody began to shoot and the fu
silade followed.

Adolph Zeis, Prpminent Sales
man, Hurled Through Glass
Shield and KUled
Wife and Two Quests Thrown
From Car and Painfully
OAKLAND, June " 2 6.— Adolph Zeis,
a prominent traveling/ salesman,
well known throughout the coast,
was killed shortly after 1 Vclock tills
morning, when he lost control of his
auto and the: machine crashed into a
telegraph pole . at- East Fourteenth
street and Saratoga avenue.' With him
in the machine were his wife and two
guests, Charles Iteuter and Mrs. J. W.
Brasford. AH three were injured, the
shock nearly proving fatal to Mrs. Zeis,
who has been a semi-invalid since the
death of her mother last May.
The accident occurred 'at a/ sharp
curve, the occupants being thrown from
the car. * Zeis was hurled against the
wheel and through the glass dust
shield. His skull was fractured.
Aid Is Summoned
Neighborhood residents telephoned to
the police for assistance and Night Op
erator Hunley made a flying trip to the
scene in an auto. Hastily placing the
victims of the accident in ', the car he
started for the county Infirmary, but
before the destination was reached Zeis
died. '
Mrs. Zeis, whose condition appeared
so serious that it was feared she, too,
might succumh, was taken to "the
Acropolis sanatorium, where an exam
ination by Doctor Shannon disclosed
the fact that the woman's injuries con
sisted of severe shock and a number of
painful bruises, none of her bones hav
ing been broken. . Reuter and Mrs.
Brasford were taken home, where they
were placed under the care of a nurse.
Their injuries are painful, but not dan
g-erous. , j , (_ \u25a0
Was Careful Driver
Zeis started out to take his wife and
their guests for a spin In hlsnew car
at 8 o'clock in the evening. rThe^outing
was planned. principally for -the' benc^t
of Mrs. Zeis. Finding the ;nlght ldeaf
for motoring, the party '< proceeded to
Alvarado and then: returned homeward.
According to friends, Zeis ; was a very
careful driver. On her way to ithe hos
pital Mrs. Zeis declared "that they were
going along at a very moderate pace
when the crash came. The 'speed Indi
cator, - however, registered 48 miles
when It was found after the accident.
.It Is believed \u0084t hat Zeis found' the
steering gear unruly at the sharp curve
and was unable to turn his machine,
which ran straight ahead and crashed
Into the pole.
Zeis was one of the oldest traveling
salesmen in this county, and for a num
ber of years had represented the J. A.
Folger company on this side of the bay.
He Was a member of the Commercial
Travelers' association, of the Elks, Ma
sons, Knights of Pythias, and had other
fraternal connections. Four children
survive him — -Allen! aged. 16 years;
Ruth, aged 13; Duncan, 10, and Russell,
7. Arrangements for the funeral have
not been completed. His home was, at
1226 Second avenue.
