No Uneasiness Felt. Washington, Sept. 21.—Early dispatches to the state depart ment brought no news of Ad miral Southerland and the ma rines, believed to have fought a battlo with revolutionists who sought to delay their march to Granada. Officials are puzzled at the difficulty In communica tion. No uneasiness Is felt for the safety of the United States forces. Managua, Sept. 20—(Delayed)— Three American marines were slight ly wounded by insurgon bullets fired at Major Butler's battalion as the train bearing bluejackets and marines was passing through Masaya Thurs day night for the purpose of opening up the railroad to Granada. The American force, arriving at Granada today, found the population on the verge of starvation. Washington. Sept. 21.—Severe fight ing between American naval forces and Nicaraguan revolutionists is believed to have occurred In the last few days near Barranca, although reports from the scene are so meager that officials here have no definite idea of what has happened. Rear Admiral Southerland Is In the field, probably with upward of 2000 men, and If plans have not miscarried by this time he has cleared the route of the National railway of opposing rebels and relieved the famine threatened city of Granada. European attention to affairs In Nic aragua at this time Is believed to hi' one of the possibilities. The Washing ton government Is sending relief to the beleaguered city, Granada, populated by many foreigners, and hoped to avoid any pretext for landing European mil itary or naval forces on Central Amer ican soil. The British consul general at Ma nagua and the British vice consul at Matagalpa have reported two British subjects murdered by the rebels at Aehuapa. It is expected, however, that the British government before taking action on its own account will await the result of the American campaign. A delayed telegram from Admiral Southerland, dated Managua, Septem ber IT, and reporting that American bluejackets and marines were fired upon as they attempted to open the railway, reached the navy department yesterday. Delayed reports said the Granada relief party had been fired upon last Sunday; that tho officer in command had halted and sent to Ma nagua for reinforcements, and that Ad miral Southerland had gono to the res cue with two companies of marines and a detachment of sailors. Whether there was more firing from the rebels before the additional Ameri can force arrived is not known, but It Is possible the brush referred to In the dispatch received yesterday was the one that took place Sunday. Upon his arrival at Barranca, Ad miral Southerland sent word to General Zeledon, a rebel leader, that he pro posed to open the railroad to Granada, and to keep It open, and that he would give the rebels 24 hours to clear the front. While Zeledon hesitated. General Mena, former secretary of war of Nic aragua and the principal leader In the revolution, came northward from Gra nada with another large force of rebels and Joined him. After a consultation they sent a formal defiance to Admiral Southerland, announcing their purpose to oppose his advance. It Is not known exactly how many sailors or marines composed the ad miral's force at that time, but It Is be lieved It did not exceed 30ft or 400 men. At any rate. In view of the large num bers of rebels In his front, and unwill ing to run the risk of temporary defeat, the admiral called for reinforcements from Managua, where It Is believed there were still about 1500 sailors ami marines available. That was the situ ation when the last cablegram was dis patched from Managua, three days ago. O'NEIL TAKEN TO KOOTENAI COUNTY Wallace, Kept. 21.— B. F.

RESENT TRICK PLATED ON BORAH Friends of Borah In dignant Over Action of Committee ITRY TO MAKE BORAH PULL HAINES THROUGH Plan Is Arranged Without Knowledge or Consent of Senator, Who Is, Evident ly With Design, Placed in Embarrassing Position.

Tie was then sent to Glenns Ferry with the under standing that he wa* to go from there to Mountain Home and then to Bm neau, In Owyhee county, and then re turn to Roise. when a schedule was to be agreed upon that would accom modate him. Standpatters Active. Again chaos was brought about and tho Mountain Home and Rruneau meetings were called off and the sen ator sent to Rexburg ostensibly be cause the county fair was In session, but as It now appears for the purpose of giving tho standpnt Republican leaders of that section an opportunity to demand that he come squarely out for Taft and In support of Haines.
