The Messagero says today: "Within a few days Cardinal Merry Delvai has shown discourtesies to a most beloved American citizen and to a gathering of most beloved per sons of Germany, and indirectly to the King of Italy. As long as this young and audacious Spanish car dinal dominates, the Italian Liberals must be on their guard.

Daring Plans of Bank Dynamiters Frustrated by Bullets and MotorCars CHICAGO, April 7.—Three bank robbers were wounded and captured at Morris, 111., today after an exciting race between a freight train bearing the fleeing robbers and a number of motor cars carrying members of the pursuing posse. The captives belonged to a band of five which raided the Bank of Coal City, Ills., to day and escaped with $ 5,000. The marauders entered the town, which Is 63 miles southwest of here, on a freight train and began their operations by capturing Barney Ghet to, night watchman, and Washington Frye, night engineer of the electric plant. 'they then entered the bank and blew open the safe. Sacking all the money that they found, they fled to .^e railroad yards, where they leaped on a Santa Fe freight train. Three hour later, three men suf fering from shot wounds were ar rested at Morris, Ills. The other two bandits nad fled into the country from somewhere along the line and late tonight had not yet been found. The three wounded men had none of the money taken from the bank, the amount of which has not been dis closed. It is supposed to be either in the possession of the other two or cached somewhere near the rail road. The men wounded are supposed to have been struck by shots fired after them by officers as they fled to the railroad yards. i he men who es caped are supposed to have jumped from the train when they became convinced that the wounded men se riously hurt and could give them no further assistance. The deserted men have so far declined to talk further than to persist in their Innocence.

JURY FINDS DEATH DUE TO SHOT FIRED DY FARLINGER Doubt Lingers With Officers and Public*‘Important If True Testi* mony of Boy Wot Substantiated * We, the coroner's jury, surn * moned and sworn to investigate * the circumstances leading up to * the death of Charles Farlinger, * find as follows: » That deceased came to his * death by a gunshot wound in * dieted by himself. » Signed this 7th day of April, » 1910. * J. H. DAVENPORT, » Foreman. > R. E. CUMMINGS, ► O. A. BIX EM AN, t J. O. LEW1N, * ARTHUR LAPSLEY, * W. L. JACKSON. m The above verdict was returned yesterday afternoon at the conclusion of the coroner's inquest at Star Pointer to inquire into the death of Charles Farlinger, whose body, with a bullet hole through the head, was found Monday afternoon. While the verdict is accepted by a large number of the officers and oth ers who have followed the case as a satisfactory solution of the mystery, there are many persons who are still firmly convinced that Farlinger met with foul play, despite the inability thus far of the authorities to gath er positive evidence in support of their belief. When the inquest reconvened yes terday afternoon, Kitty White, of whom Farlinger was enamored, re sumed her testimony. She stated that she and Farlinger came down to Ely late Sunday night by team. Previously and on the way down Far linger told her, according to her tes timony, that he had recently sold a mine for *30,000 and had *5,000 in an Kly bank. He had promised to pay up all her debts In Ely and take her to Jarbidge, where be was to start in business. About 9 o’clock Monday morning, the couple parted, so she testified, at an Ely saloon. He promised to meet her again at 11 o'clock at the same place. With that idea in view, the woman went about town gathering up her bills, and was on hand to meet Farlinger at the ap pointed place and time. Farlinger did not show up. She made inquiry, according to her testimony, and learned about noon that Farlinger had gone to Star Pointer. Jack Sullivan, the bartender em ployed at the woman’s Riepetown re sort, who was supposed to have been a rival of Farlinger for her affections, was examined at great length. He emphatically maintained that he had never met Farlinger and did not know him, but would probably have known him from the description he had heard. He declared that he had no recollection whatever of having ^ever seen Farlinger, and that he had no Ill-feeling toward him. Sullivan swore that he went to the White wo man's resort at Star Pointer Sunday night and set up a roulette wheel, re turning to Riepetown about daylight Monday. After breakfast, he went to Kimberley, returning in about an hour. He remained there, he testi fied, until about 6 o’clock Monday evening, when he heard a rumor that Karlinger had been killed at Star Pointer. Thinking that perhaps the reported killing had occurred at the White woman's place, he got a team and drove there. Upon arriving Sul livan found this was not true and re turned to Riepetown. Peter Smilinack, a 13 years old boy, testified that he saw Sullivan at 12:30 .Monday afternoon drive at top speed from the neighborhood where Farlinger’8 body was found near that time. When questioned closely, the boy safd that Sullivan did not drive at top speed but made his horses trot and walk. The testimony of the boy did not carry much weight with the Jury, for the reason that it was unsubstan tiated and that Alfred J. Fowler of the Smilinaek and Fowler saloon, de clared the youth an inveterate liar. Fowler corroborated the testimony of Sullivan as to the latter visiting Star Pointer about 6 o’clock Monday evening. Several other unimportant witnesses were examined. Two of the Jurors, R. E. Cummings and J. H. Davenport, desired to tile written recommendations to the county com missioners for the revocation of the saloon license issued to the White woman, but other members declined to sign it. The funeral of Farlinger will take place at 1 o’clock this afternoon from i the Wilson-Bates undertaking par-, lore. Rev. G. C. Hunting will offl- j ciate at the service*. Failure of Another Brook lyn Bank Brings Back Memories of Days inl907 NEW YORK, April 7.—The Bor ough bank, of Brooklyn, closed Its doors today and the superintendent of banks has taken posessison. The bank has capital of f 200,000 with de posits of more than 12,000,000. B. R. Shears is president of the institu tion. This is the second bank fail ure In Brookly within a week, the first being that of the Union bank. As was the case with the Union bank, the Borough bank was obliged to suspend during cue panic of 1907 but by arrangement was reorgan ized later. The new management waa obliged to assume the liabilities of the old organization, which has been a heavy oad. Also the suspension of the Union bank had a bad effect on the Borough bank, which was known to be in much the same sort of po sition. When the Borough bank closed its doors in October, 1907, the charge was made that the institution’s funds had been misappropriated. Its pres ident, noward Maxwell, and its cash ier, Arthur D. Campbell, were indict ed. President Maxwell committed suicide a few days later by cutting his throat. The closing of the bangs has caus jed but slight attention in financial * and market circles for the reason •hat the struggles which their man agements were making were under stood. Few expected that it would be possible to straighten out the en tanglements into which the previous organization had plunged the con cerns. G. T. TO MEET GRAIN RATES. < 'nnadian Line to Compete Competi tion of American Roads. MONTREAL. April 7.—Officials of the Grand Trunk have decided in order to meet the competion when the new rates on grain from Buffalo to New York made by the American railraods go into effect on May 1, to put in effect equally low rates, so that the rail and water rates on Canadian grain to Montreal will be as low as by any American route. The reduced rates are a result of the contest over rates in which the Grand Trunk refused to reduce its differential when the fast trunk lines endeavored to orce this on the differ ential lines. Every pressure was brought to bear, including a threat on the part of certain trunk lines to cut rates on west-bound business to Chicago. While sufficient pressure was brought to bear on the trunk lines to cause the withdrawal of the notice of the rate reduction from New York the war was carried into the grain carrying districts and rates were cut by the American railroads on Can adian grains from Buffalo to New York and Boston.
