Birmingham, Ala., Nov. 12.—Another death has resulted from the shooting affray in the Peerless saloon Saturday morning. Joseph Ashby died from his wounds. The quarrel started between Enoch Castleberry and Joseph Ashby about some theater tickets. Ashby was shot through both lungs. Thomas Fitzpatrick, who was in the fight, was shot and instantly killed. Enoch Castleberry was shot in the groin. E. P. McDonald is in jail charged with murder. It is said McDonald was acting as peacemaker, but had to shoot to defend himself. Castleberry and Ashby had some words. .In a few moments a general fight followed, in which McDonald, Ashby, Fitzpatrick and Castleberry had a part. It is said that Ashby fired the first shot, which struck Castleberry in the groin. Fitzpatrick, it seems, went to Ashby’s assistance, and pulling his pistol held it on McDonald, who had made a movement as if to take Castle berry’s part. McDonald then drew his weapon and began firing rapidly. The shooting was general and when it was over the saloon looked like a slaughterhouse. Several policemen had rushed in before the shooting had con cluded and began arresting the partici pants. Fitzpatrick was shot through the heart and killed instantly. Castle berry was found in a chair at a lunch table in the saloon groaning from his wound. Ashby was on a table near by with his pistol still in his Land. McDonald is charged with having killed Fitzpatrick and it is also claimed by some that he shot Ashby. Ashby, it is alleged, shot Castleberry and fired a shot at McDonald even after officers had arrived on the scene. NEpRO MORTALLY WOUNDED Savannah Policeman Shoots a Des perado In Self Defense. Savannah, Nov. 12.—Jim Swain was shot by Policeman P. J. Farrell and fa tally wounded. Swain is wanted in South Carolina for murder and robbery. Policeman Farrell caught him and took him to a box to call the wagon. The negro got away, but the policeman caught him again. Then Swain grap pled with the policeman and threw him down. Farrell had drawn his pistol and the negro took it away from him. Before the negro could use the pistol some one came up and handed Farrell another pis tol, with which he shot the negro twice. Both of Swain’s lungs were perforated and he cannot live. Head Crushed With a Kock. Savannah, Nov. 12. Constantine Skiddis, a Greek fruit dealer, at Mills and Bay streets, was killed by an 18- year-old negro boy, known as “Pud ding.” The boy had asked credit for some apples and on being refused threat ened to get even with Skiddis. He re turned, and slipping up behind the Greek, struck him on the head with a rock, crushing his skull. The Greek died in a short time. Killing at a Hot Supper. Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 12.—Thom as Rifcls, a negro, was .shot and kided at a negro hot supper. It appears that 35 or 40 negroes were congregated at the supper when a general melee took place.

HIS FIGHT AGAINST CLARK History of the Montana Political Fued Uetween the Millionaire Mine Own ers—lts Origin and Clark’s Final Triumph at the Recent Election. New York, Nov. 12.—Marcus Daly of Montana died today at the Hotel Neth erlands. Mr. Daly’s death has been expected for weeks. He came home from Europe about the middle of September and soon afterward was obliged to take the bed from which he never again arose. His physicians informed his relatives some time ago that Mr. Daly could not re cover, and they gave assurances of life only from day to day. Bright’s disease, complicated with heart weakness, was the cause of death. Marcus Daly was born in Ireland in 1842. He came to the United States early in life and since 1876 had been a citizen of Montana. He became general manager of the Alice silver mine and later came into control of the Anaconda copper mine. At the time of his death he was president of the Amalgamated Copper company. In politics he was a Democrat. The differences between Mr. Daly and W. A. Clark have attracted much at tention. The trouble started years ago over some water rights near Butte, which Daly wanted and which Clark bought, forcing the other to pay a very high figure. Daly’s opportunity for revenge came in 1888, when Clarke was the Demo cratic nominee for delegate to congress. With his immense influence at Ana conda Daly was able to throw a heavy vote to Carter, Clark’s Republican op ponent, which had previously been cast for the Democratic’party. Montana be came a state in 1889. At the first state election Clark was the Democratic nominee for representa tive in congress and J. K. Toole for governor. The latter was elected, but Clark was defeated, supposedly owing to Daly’s influence. Clark was put for ward by his party for the United States senate. After a bitter contest the legis lature was organized by both parties, each claiming to be legal. The Repub cans named Thomas O. Powers and W. O. Sanders for their senators while the Democrats put up Clark and Major Mar tin MaGinnis. The Republicans were seated. Daly’s Second Victory. Mr. Daly’s influence defeated Clark in a second contest in 1893. In that legislature the Democrats had 35 votes, the Populists 3 and the Republicans 33. The Daly Democrats, numbering 9, voted solidly for ex-Congressman W. W. Dixon and there was a deadlock for the entire session of 60 days. Tele grams from men like Calvin S. Brice and W. C. Whitney and others equally high iu their party were sent to Daly to withdraw his opposition, but he ignored them. The next fight between Daly and Clark was on the location of the state capitol. Helena, Missoula, Bozeman and Anaconda were in the fight. Daly ad vocated the last named place. Clark at first favored Butte, but finally changed to Helena and it was chosen. The senatorship again became the bone of contention between the two millionaires last January and Clark was elected. Daly had the validity of the election contested on the ground of bri bery, when Clark presented his creden tials to the United States senate. The use of money in an election was freely acknowledged on both sides, though it was claimed that the expenditures were for legitimate expenses only. The con test resulted in the senate voting that there had been no election by the Mon tana legislature. Clark’s Final Triumph. This year Clark made a fight for the election of members of the legislature in his interests and won. His return to the United States senate next January is assured. No mining property has achieved greater fame as a producer of dividends than the famous Acaconda. Originally bought as a silver mine it became fa mous for its copper and to it both Daly and Clark largely owe their vast for tunes. Back in the seventies two miners named Hickey went to Montana. They selected a hill overlooking the little mining -camp of Butte and began to sink their shaft. They struck a fair vein of silver, but lack of funds made them stop work and offer to sell. Marcus Daly bought the property for $35,000. He acted, it is said, as agent for J. B. Haggin of California. As the new owners ran their shaft down they opened one of the world’s greatest copper mines with silver enough to pay all expenses and having the cop per as clear profit. Daly was superin dent and part owner of the mine. He bought the adjacent property. He founded the town of Anaconda in a valley 25 miles distant, and located where there is an exhaustless supply of water and great deal of wood—two in dispen sables for the smelting and reduc tion of ores. At that place he erected the greatest copper plant in the world, Daly had a passion for horses of blood and speed. He owned the $40,000 colt, Hamburg, Tammany, Montana. Sena tor, Gwendoline, Ogden, and other fa mous winners. He tried to buy the win ner- of the derby and Ascot race of 1897, Galtee More, but his offer of $125,000 was not accepted. Death of Henry Villard. New York, Nov. 12.—Henry Vil lard, the railroad magnate and financier, died at his summer residence at Dobbs Ferry early today. Mr. Villard had in tended to return to New York about the middle of last month, but his condition was then so precarious that his physi cians advised him to remain at his coun try home until he should have gained more strength. A week ago he caught a heavy cold and since then his condi tion has been gradually growing worse. Two physicians have been with him constantly for a week past. Killing Near Greenville. Greenville, S. C., Nov. 12.—Ned Parks, a negro, was shot throngh th« heart and instantly killed by Miles Cureton in the Dark Corner. Warrants were out for Cureton for running a blind tiger, and he took refuge at Parks' cabin, where, it is alleged, he stole some clothing. When accused of the theft Cureton shot Parks.

INDICATIONS POINT TO FUTURE CONFLICT War Is Predicted Between France and England. MR. SALISBURY’S SPEECH There is General Discontent Over the Prospective Adjournment of the Chi nese Question—The Rossija Declares Russia Will Act Independently’. St. Petertburg, Nov. 12.—Discuss ing Lord Salisbury’s speech at the lord mayor’s banquet in London on Friday evening, The Rossija and The Novosti appear to be discontented over the pros pective adjournment of the Chinese question. The Rossija declares that the “ostrich policy” will be ruinous, for Russia will gain her demands by inde pendent action. The Novosti discovered in the speech indications of a future conflict between Great Britain and France and asserts that they owe it to themselves and tc Europe to prepare accordingly. The Novoe Vremya thinks that Lord Salisbury did not describe Great Brit ain’s weakness resulting from tbe South African war in sufficiently strong terms. ANGLO-AMERICAN ALLIANCE. It Is Not Regarded as Dangerous tc the World’s Peace. St. Petersburg, Nov. 12. The Northern Courier, a journal with radi cal tendencies, commeijting on the re sult of the election in the United States, expresses the opinion that the fact that President McKinley’s re-election did not cause uneasiness abroad is sufficient proof that America remains peace loving in spite of imperialism, and that the world understands this. The Anglo-American alliance, the pa per says, would not endanger universal peace since, after America, England is the most peaceful state in the world. And it thinks that England’s numerous small wars in Africa and India and the Transvaal war do not disprove this statement. It was not a desire for ter ritorial aggrandizement that caused the Indian war, but the exposed condition of the English frontier which Russia threatened. RUSSIA DENIES THE CHARGE Is Not at War With China and. Has Annexed No Territory. St. Petersburg, Nov. 12.—The story of General Linevitch having notified the consuls at Tien-Tsin of tne aunexa ation of land opposite the British and German concessions is false. It is offi cially stated that Russia is not at war with China and that there can be no question of annexing territory which is against all Russian ideas. It is true that certain railroads had been damaged and that Russia had re paired and held them until a statemeni of the expense of repairs had been made. Pope on the Election. Rome, Nov. 12. —The pope in receiv ing Bishop James Trobes of St. Cloud, Minn., took occasion to express the most cordial sentiments regarding Arch bishop Ireland in particular and Ameri cans in general. Referring to the result of the recent elections in the United States the pontiff said: “I pray God to so illumine President McKinley’s mind that he may avoid the dangers of im perialism.” May Cancel Reiff’s License. London, Nov. 12.—1 n view of the lo cal stewards of Liverpool having sum moned Wishard, the trainer, and Lestei Reiff, the jockey, for an explanation ol the Dorcaster riding of Richard Croker’s horse, The Scotchman 11, it is regarded in racing circles as likely that Reiff’s license will be cancelled. Lord Durham accuses Reiff of “pulling.” To Fight the Tariff’.
