PRISONERS AT FORT MORGAN
ATTACK SHERIFF CALVERT Fort Morgan, Colo., .Tune 14.—(Den ver Bepublican Special)—When Sheriff Calvert went over to the jail a little af ter nine o’clock last night he observed that one or more of the prisoners had In some way broken out of the cells. He summoned S. A. Itussell, George York and Charles Baker, well known citizens, to Ids assistance. The four men were armed with heavy sticks. Sheriff Calvert started Into the jail ahead of the others. On openiug the jail door Simmiugton met him with a revolver. The sheriff struck Simming ton with his club and knocked him against a desk near by. Bussell ran up and Simmington tired at the sheriff, but Bussell knocked the gun up and the bullet burled itself in the ceiling. Sheriff Culvert knocked Simmiugton lown with his club, but before he could disarm the prisoner Simmiugton shot him in the right lower jaw, jumped up nnd escaped from the building. As Simmington ran out he shot at Bussell, the ball grazing Bus sell's face. He also shot at Baker, who was outside the door, the bullet passing through Baker’s vest and cut ting off one of the suspenders. While the sheriff was struggling with Simmington, Smith, who also had a gun, was driven back into the cell by Bussell, who took the sheriff’s gun after he fell. Hill, the third prisoner, was not armed. These are the same men who were reported In the Bepubllcan as having escaped from McComb, Illinois. Harry Simmington, who escaped, is about six feet three inches tall and weighs ISO JUBILEE DAY CELEBRATION AT THE Y. M. C. A. CONVENTION Boston, Juno 14.—Jubilee day, ns yesterday had been designated by the International jubilee convention of the Y. M. O. A., was brimful of Interest, and the morning procession in Me chanics. hall was in a large degree picturesque and novel. After the formal addresses had been delivered by Cephas Brninard of New York, President Fnunce of Brown uni versity and Rev. Francis Clark, father of the Christian Endeavorers, the presentation of foreign delegates went on again as it will from time to time each day. the audience rising to its feet and welcoming with friendly voices and fluttering handkerchiefs • each representative from foreign ' lands as he was presented, many of the visitors wearing their native cos tumes. James Stokes of New York presided, with Christian l'hllldlas of Switzer land acting as master of ceremonies. A striking figure was Nicholas Vasl llefT, a delegate from Russia, gowned in the deep crimson of his office. 1 A special Jubilee service was held in the old South meeting house, in the chapel of which the first Y. M. O. A. In the United States was organized fifty years ago, and a commemorative tablet was unveiled. A reception of more than «00 delegates by Governor Crane in the stnte house and a special service in Fanueil hall, with address es bv Lieutenant Governor Bates, Mayor Hart and several delegates served to till out the afternoon.

MODERN WOODMEN REFUSE LARGE CITIES St. Paul, Juno 13.—Election of offi cers and a protracted conteßtoyer the admission of cities of over 200.0 W to the jurisdiction of the order filled the business day of the Modern W oodmen of America yesterday.

Marshal Burdette and Un der Sheriff Anderson are now out in charge of posses after him. , The three prisoners mentioned robbed three stores here last* week, for which they were arrested. The booty, con sisting of revolvers and other valun ubles was recovered by the officers. It was part of this loot that had been taken from the cache of the burglars nnd was in the office of the jail that the prisoners secured. The cell room is back of the office. The men must have picked the locks of their cells, which let them out into the main room. Then they picked the lock of another door leading into the office. I All three of the men are desperate ( characters nnd escaped from the Ma comb, Illinois, jail, and $200 reward has been offered for Simmlngton’s ar rest. Hill, who when lirst arrested gave his name ns Stacy nnd claimed to be a detective, asserts he was trying to get word to the officers that his com panions were attempting to escape. He was lighting matches in his room to at- ] tract attention. He is the man who turned state’s evidence on his two com panions nnd they have a dislike for him. Hill had not got out of his cell when the shooting occurred. The offi cers believe that he would have es caped If he hud hud a chance. lmving an especial bearing upon asso ciation work among the railroad tnen of North America. Among the pleasant features of the convention has been the receipt of a message from the German ambassa dor at Washington, transmitting a tele gram from Emperor William. The Em- IM*ror says: "I ask you to transmit to the broth erhood of Young Men’s Christian As sociations of America, assembled for the jubilee convention, my heartiest congratulations. With pride the brotherhood may look back on Its past work, which promises to further flour ish and increase. May this expecta tion be fulfilled In a rich measure. With satisfaction 1 see that the Ger man association, active In the same en deavor, takes part fraternally in this solemn gathering. May the American association also in the future trait* for their fatherland citizens who are sound In body and mind, and of earn est convictions of life, standing on the only unmovable foundation of the name of Christ, whose name Is above every name. “WILLIAM, I. It.” The convention In reply sent a mes sage to the Emperor expressing thanks and saying that the delegates were deeply touched by the reference to the fraternal relations existing between the young men of the German father land and 'Ainerted. “May our alliance founded on Christ forever bind the kindly sentiments which now exist be tween the two lands.” was the con cluding sentiment of the convention message. years to conic the membership limita tions of the Modern Woodmen.

G. A.R. MEMORIAL FAIR HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL Denver, June 14.—1 t was after mid night when the last prize was awarded at the G. A. It. fair hist night, and al though the large prizes had been awarded some time before the crowd held on to the other end. The capital prize, the house and lot in Colorado Springs, donated by W. S. Stratton, excited the greatest amount of interest, and when the announce ment that L». A. Miller of No. 1820 Im fayette street was the holder of the winning coupon the cheering Was gen eral. The drawing was done by Miss Ed na Collins and Miss Dorn Schick, un der the direction of Wolfe Londoner and two other gentlemen of the com mittee. Two large churns were used to hold the tickets. One contained the cards on which were written the names of the prizes. On the other side was the churn which contained the coupons with the name and ad dress of the holder. As a coupon was drawn from the churn a drawing was made from the list of prizes and that prize was credited to the coupon. Some of the larger prizes were awarded to the following: A stallion, valued at SSOO and presented by F. A. Keener, drawn by A. Thayer of Val verde: grand piano, donated by Bush & Gerts, drawn by J. Hunt. No. 4011 Twenty-iirst street: an organ donated by the Knight-Campbell company, drawn by Mr. Murphy, No. 103 East Twenty-sixth avenue. Stelnhauer grand pinno, donated by the Columbia Music company, drawn by 11. Switzer, Brown Palace hotel. • The success of the fair, from which it is expected to clear between SIO,OOO and $12,000 is due largely to the ef forts of Colonel I.ew Ginger. who has labored early and late. (Colonel Gin ger advanced the somewhat novel idea that people should not be burdened by pleas nnd solicitors after paying for their tickets. The money secured by the fair will form the nucleus of a fund for building the projected army and navy hall. CHINESE ORGANIZE TO FIGHT EXCLUSION New York, Juno 17.—The Tribune says: The Chinese in the United States are preparing for an organized light to ob tain the aboslute reiieal of the Geary exclusion act at the coming session of Congress. The movement was started here this week, and it is expected to. spread rapidly to Philadelphia, Chi cago, Portland. Seattle. San Francisco and other cities having large Chinese populations. A powerful organization has been ef fected among the Chinese merchants of tills city. Within the next two weeks every one of the 15,000 Chinese here will lie asked to sign a carefully prepared memorial to the United States govcn»ncnt asking that the ex clusion net be repealed. 'Hie memorial will protest In the strongest possible terms against having the act extended for twenty years from the date of Its expiration in 1902. It will be forward ed to the government, along with a similar memorial prepared in other , cities, through Wu Ting Fang, Chi nese minister at Washington. I An effort will also In? made to ol>- tnln the support of thousands of Amer icans whom the Chinese believe are op tioned to the exclusion act. The Clii nese realize the handicap which is placed on the movement through their I lack of suffrage. Their strongest hope of eventual suc cess lies in Wu Ting Fang's influence. I They say that it was on ids advice that they organized for the struggle. They dej>end largely on his personal popularity to get them fighting sup porters in the Senate and House. The memorial to Congress will de mand the absolute repeal of the ex clusion act oil the grounds of fair play and as a sort of reciprocity for the opening of Chinese ports. Commercial benefits which America would derive from granting free communication with the Chinese will be a. point strongly pressed. Hague Arbitration Court. Berlin. June 15.—F. W. Hollis, United States member of The Hague arbitra tion court, during an interview said that The Hague Arbitration Court had only Just lieen organized by the ap pointment of the last of t.lie fifty-live judges, but several international ques tions are already liefore the court. The Transvaal question was certainly not one of these, because The Hague peace conference had decided that the Boer states were not sovereign states. 'rite court will not Is* in permanent session, but will only act when suit aide questions are presented to It. when the whole court will sehn-t a bench to adjudicate each question. Mr. Hollis said Isitli Count Von Hue low and Baron Von Hlohthufen. foreign minister, lias received him in the most kindly manner, sharing ids belief that The Hague court was. like the Magna (Miarta. tin agreement, around which future international law will crystal ize. Mr. Hollis lndloves that the Km peror, the German government and the German people are now sincerely in favor of The Hague Arbitration Court «*n all questions which seem to proper ly belong there. Mr. Hollis thinks tills is all the more remarkable because Germany, during the conference In 1899. had at first a number of serious, weighty objections to urge against ar bitration. But she has now honestly, llrltlnli Force Defeated. London.

London. June 15.—Sir Thomas Lip ton is willing that tin* Shamrock 11. should race with the Independence if a cup were offered, after his engage ment with the New York Yacht Club is concluded. "What I would like to do.” he said, “would be to arrange a race with the Constitution across the Atlantic aftei the challenge races, whoever wins there. This would lie good sport and a fine test of seamanship.” While the Cuban commission was in Washington the delegates informed Secretary Boot that they did not think it would be possible to have the Cu ban government organized before Feb ruary Ist. owing to the fact that cer tain procedures must be had under the new constitution.

Before the Industrial commission, Thomas Turnbull, representing tin? San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, testified concerning labor conditions In California, lie said that, generally speaking, skilled lalior receives lietter wages in California than In the east ern states, where there Is no similar difference in the wages of unskilled lalior. lb* expressed the opinion that the cheapness of Chinese lalsir Is due almost entirely to the inefficiency of the Chinese entirely as laborers.

A few days since Lone Wolf and twelve or fifteen other Indians, repre senting the Kiowa. and Apache tribes, nppenred before the secretary of the Interior and made.,a verbal protest against the opening..of ,any part of their lands in uklahoinn to settlement under the act of the last session of Congress. They were In troduced by Judge Springer. Several of them declared that the agreement for the cession of their lands had not lieen seetiml by legitimate methods. Judge Springer presented the coin complaints of the Indians in detail. Secretary Hitchoek told the Indians that he laid nnrelved them only as a matter of courtesy, and that under no circumstances could he consider their presentation while their ease was pending in the courts.

Nearly every tourist who visits Winbbigton wants to take away a sout’efm - . Souvenir stores in the na tional cnpital are as plenty as saloons, hut your true souvenir hunter wants something that he has culled himself. Hy preference he will hammer, hew or slice it off from some monument or landmark. That is why it costs Uncle Sam a fortune to guard his treasures of history, wonder and Inanity. What ever public building you enter, your cane, umbrella, or whatever you may have that would make a good ham mer, Is taken from you and checked, and at the Congressional Library and Corcoran Art Gallery you are watched very closely, lest you might get an op portunity to use your heels. These two places are particularly .enticing to the vandal, with all their statuary and carved marble. Unfortunately the Washington Mon ument lias not boon so well guarded. .cons«*quently it is badly scarred by tlie depredations of the souvenir fiends. Inside it is very dim in spots, the light being supplies! by an occa sional incandescent lamp, along the stairway. It Is in tills atmosphere that vandalism nourishes. Like white squares and the blacks of n huge checker hoard stand the memorial slal*s presented by the states in the Union at the time of the monument's erection, and by the societies and or ganizations of the nation wishing their names to Im* immortalized at the na tional capital. There are more than ir.o of these, and many of them are lu a distressful condition of mutilation. Missing heads, arms,, legs and drapery from statuary hear eloquent witness to ilie appreciation of visitors who were so favorably Impressed with the monument that they couldn’t tear themselves away without taking some thing with them to remember It by. Just exactly what value, real or senti mental. the left ear Io1m» of the God dess of Prosperity, for Instance, can have for any person is hard for a sane man to understand. Somebody got It, however. At Mount Vernon there is n small army of “spotters” on the lookout for tie- worker of souvenir iniquity. A quarter admission is charged and the money goes to defray the expense of guarding the place. In Washington’s old home there Is one tiling that strikes tie* notice l>y its contrast to the pre vailing simplicity. It is the carved mantelpiece of (’ararn marble in the dining room. One who is not a van dal cannot gaze upon it without an athematizing the whole race of relic seekers. Even with watchers in every room some individual managed to "get in his work.” and knock off the head of a galloping deer in the center of tin group. The animal remained head h•" for months. Then one day hack e;:'m* the head in a little Im>x post marked Paris. 'Die culprit had real ized the evil of his ways, the villainy of his vandalism. Said the accom panying note. "It did not occur to me in my own country, where everything i> hi perfectly preserved, the outrage that it is to mutilate historic places for relice. Here nothing is preserved: everything is chipped and marred and broken by travelers like myself. I re turn herewith, etc.” Signed—not at all. The head was stuck on. the glue stained the marble, and the milk white deer has a yellow streak around his neck. TELEGRAPHIC BREVITIES.
