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.

“The agnostics do not make all the
money In the world." said Bishop
Burgess "and a multi-millionaire

Alleges which uphold the Christian

we in fine, want our great centers of

NKVV YORK, June 22.—"I cannot >
accept more than < ne of a hundred
of the invitations which I receive to
make speeches. The Hamilton Club s
Invitation Is the one of a hundred."
Thus spoke Theodore Roosevelt today
to the twenty-five members of the
Hamilton Club of Chicago, whom he

of the Chicagoan's were accompanied
by their wives. "I cannot tell you

to Kansas City and Cheyenne."
After Mr. Roosevelt had received

the statement is untrue," Mr. Roose
velt said. “I shall have no statement

IlliOOII TRAIL TO MY8TKRY.

RICHMOND. Va.. 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.
The ambulance surgeon found only
a small cut on the thumb of the right
hand, insignificant compared with the
quantity of blood shed. Byrd said he
had been attacked and robbed.
The police think Byrd’s injury is
probably self-inflicted to avert sus
picion. Upon this theory they are
now working while the man 1b held
prisoner.

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.
