The food situation at Ashevllle
and Biltmore Is serious and none is
expected to arrive here for two days
at least, according to railway officials.
City officials are planning to take
over the supply to regulate the sale.
The police took over the supply of
gasoline in town. The latter was
boosted by some holders to a dollar
a gallon, when it was promptly seiz
ed for the use of the fire department
and rescue parties.
No word has been received from
the Black mountain district and it is
feared the IOBS of life in that section
will be great
Farm losses are expected to run in
to millions.
Only one body has been recovered
at Biltmore, that of Charlotte Walk
er, which was found at the lodge
gate of the Biltmore estate. About
twenty persons reported missing Sun
day night were ftmnd yesterday
clinging to trees on the Vand«rbilt
grounds. When the Swannanoa riv
er left Its banks, inundating the
country, John Llpe, Mabel FolsCer
and Charlotte and Louise Walker at
tempted to escape, but were caught
and carried half a mile before catch
ing a tree, Llpe, the Walker sisters,
Miss Folster ahd Kathleen Llpe
clung for hours. Charlotte Walker
became exhausted first and releasing
her hold was carried down stream.
Louise was the next to go. As soon
as dawn came, a number of volun
teers attempted to swim to the tree.
William Cooper, Y. M. C. A. student,
after wrapping a rope about himself,
srwam to within a few feet of the
Miss Folster let go the tree In an
effort to reach him, but sank almost
immediately. Cooper was carried
down stream, but was rescued sev
eral hours later from a tree top.
Finally Robert Bell tore his bathing
suit into strips, made a rope and after
an hour's work, securely tied Kath
leen Llpe to the tree with her head
but a few Inches above the water. A
boat reached the tree later In the
afternoon and she was taken ashore.
She will recover.
Five hundred families in Biltmore
were left without shelter. They are
being cared for at the home of Mrs.
George W. Vanderbllt.

The body of a woman, as yet un
identified, who had been killed by Mc
Intyre'a rifle, waa found on a porch
of an adjoining residence.
Hughes' deed was spectacular. He
startled the besiegers by calmly leav«
Ing them and walking up the path to
ward the house. As he neared the
door he drew his gun and walked In
to the house.
"I found Mclntyre crouched at a
window," said Hughes. "He was
shooting. I took no chances. I fired
as he turned towards me."
Hughes' bullet struck Mclntyre in
the forehead. On the floor beside the
murderer, lay the body of hiB wife.
Around her waist was a belt of car
tridges. Mclntyre was rushed to a
hospital where it was said he would
die. He was unconscious.
In the effort to dislodge'the crazed
negro, police had thrown several
stocks of dynamite into the house
but it did no damage. They were
planning further to blow up the build
ing when Hughes cut short their plans
by shooting Mclntyre.

Like European War-
CHICAGO, July 18.—A desperate
battle waged with dynamite, rifles
and automatic revolvers raged for
hours, today in the heart of Chicago's
populous west side. 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:
STEWART DEAN, policeman, 60,
HENRY KNOX, negro.
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
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
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
The letter then rambled on for
about 200 words.
"I must die in thia land that I may
carry my reports unto the Almighty
G*od concerning the land of the United
States," it concluded.

the City Clerk of the City of Keokuk,

8t Louts Horses and Mule*
ST. LOIUS, July 17.—Horses—The
foreign trading Friday about cleaned
up all of the available inspection
types of horses and the Frehch agents
appeared ob~ th« market again for
final delve. The inclusion of such
sorts, however, was light, and It re
quired but a grief period to effect a
pretty good clearance along that line.
The demand for horses was prac
tically nil, sellers calling It a nominal
ly steady affair. The close was steady
to slow, wit£ some stock unsold. A
right good clearance for the week was
reported. Horse quotations:
Heavy draft,..extra $175-225
Eastern chunks .... 150-185
Southern hoi$es, good ........ 85-125
Southern horses, plalri ...... 60-85
Southern horses, common 40- 65
Mules—A quite fair supply of the
long-eared fellows was available for
the Saturday trade4and good stock for
war jobs was steady, but as on pre
vious days lather scarce. *No kinds
showed any change aside from oper
ating elower^and steady prices were
paid for the best grades. Packs and
wheel mules for the United States
and French trade ruled firm and held
steady at the.close. Native stock was
Inactive throughout. A light supply
of stuff is being held over for the
coming week's market Mule quota
