: Warsaw, April 3. Not since the
Monday? following " 'Bloody "Sun

been euolia feelmg of apprehension
in thia aficient city as", exists this
morning', and.it is believed certain
that bet ore .the - day. ends much
blood Will be shed.- In many homes
in the; city anguish prevails today
and victims of the present regime
are to be found in the lodging homes
of the Jewish quarter.' . '
. One thousand Jewish socialists
aseecbbled " on Sdnday before, the
main prison and demanded that the
bddy .of a Jewish -labor leader who
had died during the -night be deliv
ered to them. .Their . demand was
refused, with the result that - after
listening to "an address by : their
leaders, they , stormed the prison
and carried the enter entrance..
,-i Hurry calls were sent out for
troops and three regiments under
the command of Brigadier-General
Saasanblealz were hurried' to the
rescue of the prison guards. The
commanding officer -ordered the
mob to disperse, and, as it did not
move on quick enough, he ordered
a volley fired, which had a deadly
Fiva fell dead at the first fire and
tbea tha mob retreated,1 firing re
vol vers and cursing at the soldiers
as - they ran. - When i the smoke
cleared five dead were found in the
main corridor of the prison while

treated , the police got busy and ar
rested more than lUO, among them
being all of the leaders of the social

proclamations : appeared at all of
the public places in which the pop

that, following the next overt act
martial law will be proclaimed.
Oregon; April 3. Two attempts
to wreck the sou'thbound overland
From Portland to San Francisco
were made near Albany last" night,
the deed being apparently the work
of wood-be hold-ups. ' Obstructions
were p'aced on the track-: in two
places, both designed to wreck ' the
train, and had the midnight over
land struck either, it would have
been thrown off the track.
A northbound freight ran into
the first obstruction, which consist
ed of a pile of ties. . This was about
9 o clock. The engine dragged one
of the ties for the remarkable dist
ance .of .' 1 rail . lengths, When it
struck the guardrail at a private
crossing, derailing the tender and
one oar; - - "'. .
When 'the overland reached , the
place of the freight wreck it; stop

and just; afte,r starting again two
shots were fired frjsm near the track.
An attempt waa made to wreck
the overland at Albany two wjeeks
ago, but was not so -well planned as
this one. ; '. ,. j?-j.;v

Albany, March 31. Paulina
Schmidt, the 6-year-old daughter of
Paul Schmidt, an Albany business
man,; and a former resident of Cor-
vallis, was drowned today in the
(Albany, lhe bo'
the Cala pooisj 300yards below the
falls, at 4 30 this afternoon, ,in 25
feet of water. - '-
Paulina, with' a small girl com
panion, was playing neat the ditch,
abont 100 , feet .from the branch
which runs into the Calapooia riv
er. .The children were jumping
from a box trough on the bank of
the ditch to . a footbridge which
crosses the canal, and in some man
ner Paulina missed her footing and
fell into "the water. . At . , this place
the water not.used for the Electric
Light & Power Company and the
Albany Water Company is permit
ted to flow' through a branch into
the Calapooia river.
When the little girl fell in, the
Watergate which controls the vol
ume of water in the exhaust ditch
was raised about ten inches, and
the result was a powerful suction
as the water boiled through beneath
the gate. The child was drawn un
der the Watergate and carried down
the chute and over, the falls into
thB" river below. ' . . .
' The water in the- exhaust ditch
flows over a fall of about 35 feet in
the Calapooia, where for ages it has
been eroding the bed of . the river,
until there is a gieat hole of uncer
tain depth there. . Around tha hole
the waters of tha Calapeoia flow in
a maelstrom.; Into this 5 the body
of the little girl, went, and here it
was later, found.
Soon afterrthe unfortunate acci
dent occurred, a large force of men
Was busy searching the ditch, but
without availr Every Inch of the
I001eet between the-gate where the
girl fell in and the falls was drag
ged .unsuccessfully, and attention
was then directed to the waters ot the

been claimed byjhe Calipopia river
near Albany in. years past, and it
has always, been difficult to -recover

Cincinnati, March That J.
Morgan Smith and his wife will re-
eiet extradition to JNew York, where
they have been Indicted for con
spiracy with Nan Patterson, Mrs.
Smith's sister, was made , evident
this afternoon. Mr. Shay, attorney
for the prisoner, secured -two writs
of habeas corpuB from Common
Pleas judge smith, returnable on
Monday, one for' J. Morgan . Smith
and. the other .for t his wife, Julia
PatterBOu Smith. It is alleged in
the writs that the 'Smiths are held
without warrant; .that no -charge
has been placed against , them, and
that there is no authority of law
for the de.tention of either husband
. Whga arrested yesterday thetwo
were held simply "on suspicion,'
but today, when it was thought a
writ of habeas corpus wonld be
sought, Chief of Detective Crawford
filed in police court an affidavit
charging Smith and his wife with
being fugitives from justice. Dur
ing the afternoon Detective Quinn,
of New York, who arrested Nan
Patterson last May after the shoot
ing of Young and who is well ac
quainted with the Smiths, called at
the central police station and form
ally identified them as the persona
named in the New York indict
ments. The writs are returnable
before Judge Spiegel in the com
mon pleas court Monday, ,
Before securing the. writs Shay
ra,d. cUe the aftef noon at the
?ollce station and held a long cod-
(ierence witn nis clients, wno met
each other for the first time since
The district attorney's office took
prompt steps today to ascertain
whether J. Morgan Smith, who,
with his wife, Julia, could be iden
tified as the man who bought a re
volver of Hyman Stern, pawnbro
ker, on the night before Caesar
Young was killed. - Smith is the
brother-in-law of Nan Patterson,
the show girl. Hyman Stern, the '
pawnbroker, had been asked to e?r
Smith, but did not. do so. It was
stated at the district attorney's of
fice today that Smith would be
brought to New York and confront
ed by Stern. .
The conspiracy with which Smith
and his, wife are charged with Nan
Patterson is that they tried to ex
tort money from Young on the ba
sis of a false . claim that she was
about to become the mother of a
child for which he would be re
sponsible," . .Assistant District Attorney Rand
said today that when Smith left
New York a few days after the ar
rest of Nan Patterson, they were
met in Hoboken by J. Randolph
Patterson, the father of the show,
girl, whe brought a suitcase filled

Washington, March 31. Mrs.
Florence Maybrick, accompanied
by her counsel, today had a long
conference with Acting Secretary of

ings now in progress to which Mrs.
Maybrick is a party, involving
property interests, some obstacle
has been encountered in availing
of Mrs. Maybrick's testimony be
cause of her peculiar legal Btatus.
and she is seeking the good offices
of the state department to procure
from the British government the
papers necessary to habilitate her
in the eye of the law. The state
