Washington, April 11. Folks who
are worrying about a possible col

statement issued by Willis L. Moore,
chief of tho weather bureau:
"Popular cappfohensior regarding
harm to the earth and Its inhabitants
during tho Impending visit of Hal

collision between tho earth and a
comet would depend upon the mass
of tho comot, tho velocity of tho
bodies and the angle of tho impact.
A collision In tho present case will
bo impossible owing to a safety mar

Interstate Commission' Orders
Pullman Rales Reduced.
Washington, April 11. After an In
quiry extending for more than a year
tho Interstate commerce commission
has reached tho conclusion by a de
cided vote that Pullman car rates are
too high, and ha3 ordered the Pull
man company and the Great North
ern company, which operates Its own
sleeping cars, to reduce tne rates
from Chicago to St. Paul and St.
Paul to Seattle and other western
points. On upper berths the commis
sion orders a reduction of approxi
mately 25 per cent.
Tho decision of the commission
means, so It Is said, that the Pullman
company will either voluntarily re
duce Its rates throughout 'the United
States or fight the decision in the
courts. It Is expected that tho com
pany will adopt the latter course.
For a long time after the enactment
of tho Hepburn act the Pullman com
pany In tho case of several minor
complaint? denied the Jurisdiction of
tho commission, and it Is probable
that tho company before the last day
of June, when tho decision becomes
effective, will take tho matter Into

New York Feud
Pell And Mott Slreef Gamblers Renew Their Ancient Fend
For Supremacy, Two Celestials Being Killed And
One Wounded Philadelphia liiiinamen Hear Of
Murders And Add Two Killed, One Fataliy And One
Slightly Wounded To List
New York, April 11. Within four
hours two Chinamen wero killed and
a third seriously wounded as a result
of the old feud between the On
Leone Tons and the new organiza
tion of the Four Brothers, which has
recently risen on Pell street to sup
plant the old Hip Song Tong and to
Llspute with Tom Lee's organization
ihc gambling monopoly of Chinatown.
One man each of the On Leongs
and the Four Brothers was BLot. and
the third man shot met tils death by
mistake. He sat in a seat at a gam
bling table which had Just oeen va
cated by a F6ur Brothers man mark
ed for death, and the long muzzle; of
the forty-five which was poked
around a corner from behind a parti
tion spit its bullet into lib vitals.
With one On Leong man dead, the
Four Brothers man only wounded
and the Innocent third party in no
way tallying up the score, the balance
of vengeance Is still with the On
Leongs, and the police believe that
more shooting may occur before the
old feud drops once more into smol
Chu Moy Yen, one of the big men
of theour Brothers and counted a
man of wealth by the Chinese, was
shot down in his tracks as he passed
a doorway at 5 Jlott street. A yel
low, loose-sleeved arm bhot out from
the doorway, the Colt spoke three
times, aud Chu went down, while
others on the street scattered.
When a police at rived at Chu's
side he lay fainting in the street. An
ambulance from the Hudson strict
hospitar carried tr-e wounded China
man around to a.i operating table,
where the surgeons found tsiat he
had two bullets In one thigh and one
In the other. After they had taken
tho lead out of him the surgeons
said that Chu would not die, and
Frank Nam, one of the four police
captains who had hurried around to
get an ante-mortem from Chu, while
ho seemed to be willing to answer
questions, carried the good news
back to the Four Brothers' citadel.
Challenge to On Leongs.
That was a strong challenge of thl
On Leongs, the shooting of so big a
Four Brothers man as Chu Moy Yen,
for Chu is tLe ;igcnt In Chinatown of
tho Great Northern railroad, and It is
his business o secure all the local
business, both of freight and passen
gers. on the lines of that road.
Chu and other Chlnaihen were
walking up Park Bow In their Sun
day best. They walked in Chinaman
fashion, In slnple file, and Chin Fook
was tho last. Fook was an On Leong
In good standing. Just as they reach
ed the southwest corner of Pearl
street and Park Row, right in the
midstof the moving picture and chop
shop quarter, i Chinaman who wa3
standing looking at the glaring litho
graphs of tho Butterfly Queens on a
bill board turned, pulled bis hands out
of his long sleoes and mado a quick
step in the direction of the last of
tho threo. Chung Fook, tho marked
man, must bave caught a glint of
something blue and shining, for he
squealed Ike a rat and then the gun
that was" pressed within a foot of his
blouse began to bark., Three shots
were fired; two went wild, and tho
third ripped through Fook's stomach.
He dropped, and the two cousins
ahead of him ran without turning
around to look, ,
People Flock to Street.
At thy second of the shots that sec
tion of Park Bow sprouted Into a
Jumbled mas.s of peoplo Instantly, all
making in tho direction of tho
sprawling ilguro. Tho Chinaman who
had dpno the shooting started to run.
He bumned into tho arms ofFqllce-
QaicUy Spreads To
raan Willis and the policeman drag
ged him out of tho press and took
him to tho station. There he said
that his name was Chu Haln. That
was all ho would say. His name ex
plained the cause for tho murder.
Chu Is one of the four slrnames, the
possession of which constitutes quali
fication for membership In the frater
nity .of tho Four Brothers. Those
two cousins paused to see the death
of their fellow tong mas and wero
arrested as witnesses. Chung Soot
the man who had been shot, llve'd
long enough to reach the Hudson
street hospital, and there he died be
fore any statement could be obtained
from him by the police and an inter
preter. GET FOUR IN QUAKER CITY
Tongs Follow Example of New York
Philadelphia, April 11. Spreading
to this city, tho tong war which be
gan in New York resulted in the kill
ing of two Chinamen, the fatal
wounding of another and the shoot
ing of a. fourth, who will recover.
Tho shooting occurred in' two
places, a grocery store and a res
taurant, both located In Chinatown,
and the police, 'Jitter a cursory inves
tigation, expressed the belief that the
trouble was due to the rivalry be
tween the On Leong Tong and the
Hip Sing Tong, the lattpr being L'i
