Xew York, May 17. A crowd of
school children ran shrieking to cover
when two groups of gangsters met and
began using revolvers on a street in the
Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
Eight men engaged in a right and two
of them lay mortally wounded when a
lone policeman dashed upon the scene

Cincinnati, May 17. Two men and a
youth were slightly injured and 28 men
were arrested yesterday afternoon,
charged with disorderly conduct, as a
result of an attempt to interfere with

Bishop Doane s record as bishop of Al-
lany was an enviable one. Among his
many .achievements, the establishment
of All Saints' Cathedral stands out as
the most prominent. In Albany and
other cities and towns in the diocese are
many other lasting monuments to the
indclatigable bishop, most of them in the
orm of homes for boys and girls. Chief
mong them is the clnlds hospital here,
wnere children ot all creeds and races
lire treated, and St. Margaret's Home, an
institution for the care of foundling
babies connected with the hospital.
In recognition of his labors, Bishop
Doane had received honorary degrees
from L'nion and Columbia colleges in this
state and from Cambridge and Oxford in
England. In the latter two he Teceived
degrees of LL, D. and D. D. in the same
year, the first time these institutions
ever conferred the degrees on one man
in one year.
On many of the mooted questions of
the day Bishop Doane held and was not
afraid to express strenuous views. He
was a cousin-tent enemy of divorce.
"Make divorce more difficult." was one
of his battle cries. At meetings of the
church bodies of which he was a mem
ber he often spoke of his opposition to '
a national divorce law, hut at the same
time declared his belief that greater
uniformity of the divorce laws of the
states would better conditions material
Woman suffrage he had always con-
sistently opposed, referring to it in ad
dresses to the graduating classes of St.
Anges scnooi (tor girls), which he
founded here, as a modern "chimera."
The bishop also advocated temperance
reforms and made pleas for "the ui-
ift of tlys queer thing, society.
William C'roswell Doane was born in
Boston, March 2, 1832, the son of George
Washington Doane, descendant of Dea-
on .John Doane, who came from England
to Plymouth in one of the three ships
which brought the first settlers to Cane

Governor Fletcher has received peti
tions signed by rceidenta of Orleans,
Caledonia and Essex counties, asking him
to take steps to procure for the people
reasonable telephone rates as well as
suitable service. It seems that the Paa
sumpsic Telephone company, a subsid
iary of the New England, has bought in
a number of independent telephone lines
in succession; and it is claimed that that
company has advanced rates, in many in
stants 50 cents a month, while the serv
ice is alleged to have deterioated in va
rious ways.
Governor Fletejier has taken the peti
tions under consideration, and if suffi
ciently impressed with the situation he
will probably name a commission to in-1
vestigate the situation and report to him
its findings.
Complaint also has reached Governor
Fletcher from other parts of the state,
and it is not impossible that the investi
gation may extend far beyond the coun
ties named in these particular petitions.
The chief petition received reads as
One Petition.
