Government Troops Repulse the
Attack of Mussulmen Insurgents
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.
Durazzo, Atlanta, June 15. The
(government troops under the personal
leadership of Prince William today
repulsed an attack on the Albanian
capital by mussulman insurgents.
At the outset of the fighting the in
surgents gained an advantageous posi
tion, put after Colonel Thomson, the
Dutch commander of the gendarmerie,
had been killed, Prince William placed
himself at the head of the defenders
and succeeded in silencing the rifle
and artillery fire of the attacking
force after three hours' fighting.
A strong force of insurgents opened
an attack on this city early today,
maintaining for hours a sharp rifle
fire supported by artillery. Among
the first defenders of the Albanian
capital to be killed was Col. Thomson,

Washington. June 15. Governor
Stewart of Montana telegraphed Presi
dent "Wilson today asking for federal
troops to restore order in the Butte
copper mine district. At the same
time the governor sent messages to
tho Montana senators and represent
atives in congress urging them to call
at the White House and support the
request. The delegation immed'ately
arranged for an interview with the
president tomorrow morning.
None would discuss the situation but
the members of congress intimated
they were ready to stand behind the
governor in any course he deemed
wise to pursue. It was evident the
call for aid from the national gov
ernment came as a surprise.

Washington, June 15. Secretary
McAdoo again stands ready to lend a
hand to Western and Southern banks
in case they need money for crop
moving purposes. The plan of lending
government money to the banks in
agricultural districts for use during
crop moving season last year was so
successful that it will be adopted this
year, if the necessity arises.
Money loaned by the treasury depart
ment last year was secured mostly by
commercial paper and all the borrow
ed money had been returned to the
treasury by April 1 together with in
terest amounting to $260,000. The to
tal amount loaned to banks was $37.
386,000. It went to 193 banks in 62
cities of 2S states.
Secretary McAdoo announced he
would lend $50,000,000 but that much
was not sought. In fact, the secre
tary stood ready to lend as much as

Today's attack came as a surprise to

of Prince William had been defeated
and that the remnant of the rebel
forces was surrounded.
Accounts vary as to the strength
of the opposing forces in the field. It
generally is estimated, however, that

who are said to be opposed by about
27,0''0 insurgents. The rebels for the
