When the roar of dynamite and the crackle of fire arms died away, six persons were dead and three wounded. Henry Mclntyre, negro, apparently heat crazed, with his wife at his side stood off the mobilized police re serves of the city and replied shot for shot to the besiegers. Mrs. Mclntyre died beside her hus band. She was found dead when De tective Sergeant Ed Hughes broke through the line of besiegers and rushed through the doorway, opening fire on. Mclntyre as he stood beside the window firing at the police who had taken refuge behind telephone poles, fences and windows and doors of adjoining residences. The dead are: MRS.

The wounded: Ed Clemons, policeman, white. Grover Crabtree, policeman, white. Mrs. Harry Knox, negreps. Mclntyre came into his yard early today rifle in hand. He opened firg on adjoining residences and shot down their occupants as fast as they appeared at doorway and windows. Mrs. Josephine Overmeyer was killed by rifle shot as she came on her porch,baby In arms. The alarm quickly spread over the west side and the police were on their way. Meanwhile Harry Knox and bis wife came to their doorway and looked out onto the yard where Mclntyre"was* dealing death. Both deaL Hu w" Half a block down the street, which is occupied largely by negroes, Alfred Mathews, negro, came to his doorstbp. Mclntyre's bullet went through his head and he fell out on the sidewalk. His body lay there for hours while bullets whistled over it. Then the- police came. Dean, a veteran of the force, walked calmly into the door. Mclntyre shot him dead. Policemen Clemens and Crab tree stooped over bis body and tried to drag it out of range. Both fey, seriously wounded. The remainder of the policemen dared death and dragged the bodies of the two Injured policemen out of range. Then they posted themselves behind telephone poles, corners, of houses and other temporary shelter, while reserves were brought up. One hundred policemen were soon in the block armed with rifles and automatic revolvers. From his brick fort Mclntyre kept up a constant fire on the besiegers who in turn riddled windows and dbors of the fort with rifle fire. Nearby was a quarry. Policemen sent for dynamite and quarrymen to handle the explosive. Sticks of dyna mite were hurled through the win dows, but exploded without routing Mclntyre. Finally protected by an overwhelm ing rifle fire, quarrymen crawled un der the corners of the house and set off four charges of dynamite, badly shattering the building, but apparent ly not injuring Mclntyre who dodged from window to window, keeping up a steady fire. •Then Detective Sergeant Hughes walked in protected by heavy fire an»l shot Mclntyre down. Beside Mclntyre as he fell, lay the body ef his wife, shot through the head. Around her waist was a belt filled with steel nosed bullets from a Springfield 30-30 that Mclntyre had dropped as he fell and on the ta&le beside Mclntyrfe lay an automatic revolver. It is not known whether Mclntyre shot bis wife when bfe found that capture waa inevitable, or whether she was klilod by a policeman's bullet. Mclntyre died,at ibe hospital. In Mclntyre's house, riddled with bullfets, was found a picture of Villa. The police also discovered writings showing that Mclntyre had claimed to be an apoBtle and saviour of the black race. Neighbors Baid that he had been acting strangely since Sun day and believed his mind, none, too strong at best, had been crazed by the heat. At the morgue where the body of Mrs. Overmeyer was taken. It was found that she was shortly to become, a mother. A letter, made public by the police, was found in Mclntyre's house. "The Lord has commanded I and also my wife. Almighty God has made me a prophet unto all nations and also my wife, Hattie Mclntyre," the letter read. "You shall know that the Lord has sent me to gather unto the Lord a remnant of the adonlc seed. The letter then rambled on for about 200 words.

Rust reports however, are receiving minor consid eration, and the trade is disposed, to sell wheat on increased receipts. New wheat is movipg to market freely, more so than last year, when wet weather was' interferring with* the harvest and threshing. A very good demand exists for new wheat from millers, whose stocks ar6 either low or made up of poor quality of old wheat, which requires mixing. In the absence of damage to the spring wheat crop from heat and rust a mod erate setback in prices may occur but If the yields are cut in the northwesti we are likely to see much higher prices.
