XLI NO. 234. p 5,000 Superstitions ltal ain Peasants Blame Americans for ’Quake ROME, June 22.—Details of the " escape of a party of American Bap tist clergymen from the hands of a superstitious mob at Avellino, at the time of the recent earthquake, were laid before Premier Luzattl by James P. Stuart, of St. Louis, who was sent by the American Board of Baptist Missions to Italy to investigate the Baptist mission In this country and who returned a few days ago from the province of Avellino. Stuart reported to the Premier that the situation in that district was very serious owing to the struggle between Catholics and Baptists. On the night of the earthquake he and his companions, he said, were brutal ly attacked. The populace seemed to attribute the earthquake to the presence of the Baptists, and a crowd, numbering into the thousands, set upon the Americans with the avowed intention of hanging them. "The police officials,” said 8tuart, •'wanted us to leave the province li mediately and secretly, but this wc refused to do, as the Italians would have said that we had fled, and we would have lost all that we have al ready accomplished. Later, however, we took our departure, according to arrangements, in a public manner, but we were guarded by 200 soldiers with guns and bayonets, as a protec tion against the 5,000 or more per sons who lined the steels, yelling, cursing and threatening us. Premier Luzzattl urged upon Stuart the advisability of avoiding any retaliatory measures or any dem onstration which would be apt to dis turb the peace. He eipressed the opinion that the action of the Italians was due more to their panic-stricken condition because of the earthquake than to any enmity against the Amer Icans. . . Stuart has decided to postpone his return to the district, in order to al low the eicltement to subside. RAPS “GODLESS COLLEGES" Bishop Would Keep I'nlvendtlfS h'nrni Grip of Croesuses.

June 22.—A mystery of a sc arlet nature confronts the police, resulting from the finding !of Jerry Byrd in a room on the sec ond floor of a lodging house lying un conscious in a pool of blood. A stream or blood trickled down the stairs, fed by a pool at the top. Following a streak of red through the hall the officers found the man.

RAILROAD FROG ORE IS UNIQUE Proposition to Shippers Would Net Eastern Inter ests About Four Millions CHICAGO, June 22.—Eastern financial interests have taken an act ive hand in the attempt being made to solve the problem of freight rates and railroad revenues. Thus far the financiers have been directing their attention to trying to induce repre sentatives of large manufacturing in terests to accept increases in freight rates. George \V. Perkins, of J. P. Mor gan & Co., concluded a three-day conference between railroad men and officials of the packing-house com panies, during which he tried to act as mediator. Failing to get the packing-house interests to agree to increases of al most 25 per cent in the rates from Chicago to the seaboard, Mr. Perkins has returned to New York to try to get the railroad presidents to agree to impose an Increase of only five cents per 100 pounds. According to the representatives of the various (lacking firms the proposition put up td them by the railroad men compre hended the transfer of $3,700,000 from the net profit side of the com bined parking house ledger to the net revenue side of the combined Kastern railroad ledger. As a matter of compromise the packing house interests offered to consent to an increase which would cost them more than $1,000,000 an nually, but to this the railroads would not agree. Now Mr. Perkins hopes to get the railroads to listen to a compromise measure and then to get the packing house interests to agree to a little larger concession than was contemplated in their Chi cago ofTer. The proceeding is unique in rail road history and is causing amaze ment among the ranks of the ship pers. The question of revising passenger rates on railroads in territory east of the Mississippi river was considered by passenger traffic officals yesterday. It Is said rates east of the Mississippi river are to be made uniformly, either two and a half cents or three centF a mile. This, it is claimed by many railroad men, will advance the charges In 50 per cent of the cases and reduce the fare in the other 60 per cent. The result of the conference was that the rate clerks of all the roads will be Instructed to prepare figures showing how much the railroads would lose by placing all interstate rates on a two-and-a-half-cent basis. Now there 1b no uniformity in Inter state passenger rates, although In most instances a two-cent fare pre vails between Interstate points where two-cent rate states adjoin.
