Police Stop Parade and Race War
Begins Baku Wrapped in Flames
and Smoke Whole Vil
lage Is Massacred.
ST. PETERSBURG. Sopt. 7. (2:50 A.
M.) The nwg from Baku receivod up to
Uie time of the filing of this dispatch Is
of the gloomiest charactor. The Armen
ian and Tartar warring factions now ap
pear to be entirely beyond control. The
Pireets of Baku seem to be unsafe for the
Inhabitants, and the force of troops to
b Inadequate to restrain the anarchlal
tendencies of tho combatants In the sur
rounding reglou.
According to reliable reports the troops
have been forced to withdraw from the
Btiburb of Balakhon. where Tuesday the
rioters set Are to tho oil works, and that
place Is now In the hands of the Tartars,
wb have completed the "work of de
struction and who. It Is said, massacred
the inhabitants who did not accompany
the troops In the retirement. Telephonic
and railroad communications between
Baku and the suburban oil centers are
cut. and late last night It was reported
that the wires Into Baku were down.
Tropos Can't Subdue Kiots.
The viceroy of the Caucasus has dis
patched reinforcements of troops from
TtMs. but owing to the conditions
throughout the whole of the southern
part of the Caucasus, with these rein
forcement the troops will be inadequate
to cope with the situation. In the subur
ban region the light is desperate and the
popsters are using artillery. Representa
tives of the oil Industry here are utterly
dapondont. and they declare that on the
ormIa of the telegrams so far received,
more than half of the industry In the
Baku region has boon wiped out and that
th Are Is making rapid inroads into the
remainder of the oil territory. The Baku
representative of a prominent company
has ttegraphod to his St. Petersburg
headquarters as follows:
"It is no longer a question of saving
our property, but one of getting out alive."
Concentrating for 2w Fight.
A precs dispatch from Baku, approved
"by ttoe censor, says:
"The rival factions are concentrating
in their quarters here. The situation Is
exceedingly tense. Murders are frequent.
Cannonading Is heard from time to time.
In the most turbulent quarter the patrols
have been flrod upon. Balakhan is on
Are. and the Armenians are surrounded
"by armed villagers, apparently Tartars,
and the cannonading there Is unceasing.
"The Are continues in the Black Town
quarter and in BlblebaX. Energetic meas
ures and heavy reinforcements of troops
are immediately necessary."
Other advices state that a hot fight la
going on between Armenians and Tar
tars at Bibiebat, and that great fires are
Btni raging at Sabunto and Nomanl. fed
by Immense tanks of naphtha, of which
there arc 1600 In that region, and that the
conflagration at Baku, where up to last
evening the tanks of the Society of Baku
were intact, Ls steadily increasing. Under
Iheee conditions, with fighting on the
street, and with a hurricane blowing, tho
advices say it will be almost impossible
to extinguish the tires.
Oil Men's P'an for Roller.
Oil men who assembled at St Peters
burg yesterday formulated measures
which they deemed imperative, and
which they presented to Finance Minister
Kokovsoff. These measures, which prob
ably will be laid before the Emperor,
after detailing the causes leading to the
present situation, ask that the oil works
he surrounded by troops, and that the in
flammatory elements, namely, the Arme
nians and Tartars, be entirely excluded
from the oil region. The oil men declare
that they do not hold the workmen re
sponsible, and that the regrettable events
were not caused by the workingmcn's
movement, which ls economic and polit
ical, but that their causes are deop-rooted
in the long-continued general disorder
wMeh has reigned In that region, owing
Wy to hatred among the races.
Bed Flag Starts Massacre in Kishi
neff Jews Defend Themselves.

said that more than a score df soldiers

ing resistance to the troops.
According to details of the disorders
of September 4, received by the Min
istry of the Interior, the affray,
though originating In an attempt of
the authorities to disperse demon
strators at the funeral of a Jewess,
developed into a combat between Jew
ish manlfostants and socialist work
men and a mob of rowdies and anti
Remltos. The official dispatch does
not mention any persons being killed,
and it Is believed there were no fatal
ities. According to the dispatch, the police
did not interfere with the parade so
long as it was orderly, but, when red
flags appeared and revolutionary cries
were heard, the police and troops com
menced to disperse the manifestants,
who answered with revolver shots,
which attracted a great crowd and a
racial fight began. Among the wound
ed were three policemen who were
stabbed. Order was quickly restored
and thoreafterall was quiet. About
7 persons were wounded.

Daily Downpour at New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS. Sept. 6. Dr. White's
warning to the people of New Orleans to
be on their guard against excessive rain
falls during September, which would tend
largely to multiply the breeding places of
stegomyia, bids fair to be borne out so
far as precipitation is concerned, though
the reduction In the number of new cases
of fever during the past ten days does
not Indicate that the mosquitoes are tak
ing advantage of their opportunities.
After a forenoon of clear and pleasant
weather the heavy rain again set In to
day, filling gutters throughout the city
and creating fresh ponds and pools in
every vacant- lot. For ten days there
have been showers nearly every day.'
Infection, however, is spreading more
and more slowly, and the conclusion
drawn is that screening of cisterns, oiling
and salting of gutters and fumigating of
premises have accomplished the destruc
tion of millions of mosquitoes, which
otherwise would now be depositing their
larvae in the new breeding places.
Dr. White and Dr. Warner-both testify
to the Invaluable assistance that has
ben rendered In the campaign by the
women's organizations. Many representa
tive society "women have foregone vaca
tions to render assistance la the cam
paign. There has been some demand here for
a quarantine of the city against the coun
try on account of the danger of reinfec
tion, but Dr. White Is opposed to such a
move and does not believe it will be effec
tive. However, all avenues of Ingress to
the city are being watched.
The following reports from the country
have been received:
Jefferson Parish Kcnner, four cases;
Hanson City, Ave, three deaths; Kinlin's
Camp, two cases; Fisher's Camp, two
cases; Shrewsbury, one death.
St. Bernard Parish Terre Aux Boeuf,
one case; near Slaughterhouse, one case.
St. Mary's Parish Patterson, 12 cases;
Amelia, six new cases; Tallulah. 21 cases
In all; Lake Providence, nine cases.

PENSACOLA. Fla., SepU 6. The num
ber of new cases to develop In Pensacola
today showed a decrease, although phy
sicians are still Investigating a number
which will probably be pronounced yel
low fever tomorrow morning.
One fully developed case was reported,
the patient being Herman Pinneya, an
operator of the Western Union, which
office is located in the Infected district.
This makes a .total of 17 cases, of which
11 are under treatment.
Dr. S. M. Gonzales was arrested upon
the charge of opposing the State Health
authorities and circulating false reports.
Dr. Gonzales openly stated that there was
no fever in Pensacola, that the present
scare was only for the purpose of getting
graft from the people, and that there
was not a word of truth in the bulletins
ported. The doctor served In Cuba dur
ing the Spanish-American War, and re
ceived much commendation for his sani
tary work in Havana.

VICKSBURG, Miss., Sept. G.-One hew

making a total of 115, ten of which are

McCall's Son.
NEW' YORK. Sept. 6. Ex-Governor
Frank Black, of this state, appeared as
counsel for the Equitable Life Assurance
Society before the joint legislative com
mittee today, when the committee com
menced its investigation of 1fc insurance
conditions in this state. The committee is
composed of Senators William W. Arm
strong, chairman; Frank J. Tully and
Daniel .J. Rlordan, and Assemblymen
James T. Rogers, Robert Lynn Cox, Will
iam Wemple. Ezra A. Prentice, secretary
and John McKeon. Before the hearing
opened Mr. Black said!
"We have nothing to conceal and no
one to protect. We seek no legal tech
nlcalltles to evade answering any ques
tions. We will aid In every way the
progress of the inquiry."
Paul D. Cravath was present In the In
terests of Thomas F. Ryan, and Thomas
C. Gulliver as counsel for J. H. Hyde.
Make Them Truly Mutual.
Senator Armstrong, In outlining the pur
pose of the Investigation, said:
Our object will not be to punish anybody
for wrongdoing in the part, bat to jcet at all
of the salient features of the modern In
surance business, so as to suggest to ths
next LfglsUture an adequate law that will
not only protect the policy-holders In all life
Insurance companies, but will likewise pro
tect Insarance companies' management from
abuse at the hands of designing persons. As
most Insurance companies are mutual in
theory, we shall endeavor to pass a. law
that will compel them to be mutual In fact.
Then the officers of the companr will al
ways be working for the Interests of the
policy-holders, instead of working for the in
terests of themselves by the formation of
subsidiary companies to divide the profits
of the main company. A large number of
the preeent Insurance laws are good. It will
be our aim to make them better.
Several of the members of the New
Tork Life Insurance Company who had
been subpenaed appeared before the com
mlttee. as did several officers who wore
not summoned.' With them came tho com
pany's books covering tho business of the
lost ten years. The officers present were:

Life Insurance Company of New York:
his law partners, Frank Lawrence and
Frank H. Piatt, the Mutual Reserve Life

Officers Hold Many Proxies.
Vice-President Grannls testified that
there had 'been only one case In the last
five or six years of votes cast by proxy
in the Mutual Life Insurance Company's
elections. He estimated that President
Richard A. McCurdy, of the Mutual, and
himself held about 20,000 proxies. Mr.
Hughes asked who was general manager
of the Mutual, and received the reply
that this position was filled by Robert 8.
McCurdy, son of the president of the
Walter G. Oakman. himself a trustee
of the Mutual, who testified that he had
served as an Inspector of the elections in
question, was asked how he knew that
the olectors were genuine policy-holders
In reply he said that there was no ex
amination of credentials, no presentation
of policies or any other way of certify
ing the right of a prospective votor to
cast his ballot. Mr. Oakman stated that
he relied on officers of the conmanv. who.
he said, were" always present during the
two-hour election period, to tell him
whether the electors presenting them
selves were entitled to vote.
George M. Cummlngs, the president of
the united States Mortgage Trust Com

inspector, said that in .all cases tho in
spectors accepted the statements of voters
as to their eligibility.

3Iinc Superintendent Imprisoned In
Panama Through Rival's Plot.
DETROIT. Mich., Sept "6. Ered Walker.
of Pontiac. Mich., has been released by
Panama authorities from an unjust im
prisonment, and is on his way home, ac
cording to information Just received here.
It ls the belief of many of Walker's
friends that his Imprisonment was the re
sult of the pernicious activity of certain
American financial interests operating in
Panama mining regions. Walker was sent
to the Isthmian republic to superintend
and Inspect mining property, leased by
private interests In Detroit and Pontiac
Before operations were well under way. It
developed the validity of the lease had not
been conclusively established. Walker dis
appeared. It is alleged. He was finally
located at a prison In the mountains,
miles from the Pacific Coast, in the Prov
ince of Veraguez. Here it ls said he was
submitted to outrageous treatment, and
very little food was given him. Bats and
worms crawled about the filthy dungeon
The environment quickly told on his
mind and body, and before relief came he
became enfeebled and demented. i
When it was discovered that Walker
had been thrust in prison an appeal was
carried to the United States Consul at
Panama, and a demand made for Walker's
release. The prisoner was carried from
the cell almost a wreck. He was taken
to Panama and given medical treatment.
His relatives were notified and a guaran
tee of expenses for his return was Imme
diately cabled.
The whole affair will be thoroughly In
vestigated. Those most interested main
tain the valid! tv of their suspicions that
the mining superintendent was put Info
prison to get him out of the way, and the
move was instigated by rival mining in
"Will Not Let Germany Prevent Ven
geance on Slorocco.
PARIS. Sept. 6. The government
still awaits word from Fez regarding
the Sultan's answer to the second ul
timatum to Morocco, the time limit of
which expired yesterday. The firm in
tention of the Ministers ls to enforce re
dress without reference to outside in
fluences. Unofficial Intimations have been re
ceived that Germany does not sympa
thize with a French military demon
stration against Morocco, as likely to
complicate the general Moroccan ques
tion on tho eve of the conference.
Nevertheless there is a positive deter
mination here to keep the redress of
the outrage of the arrest of the Al
gerian citizen Bouzlan entirely sepa
rate from the general question of Mo
rocco, and to pursue the question of
redress to the end.
Whether both military and, naval
demonstrations will be made awaits
the final word from Fez. But both
branches of the service are prepared
for eventualities.
The ineffectual results of the demon
stration of the American squadron at
Tangier to securo the release of Ion
PerJicaris when he was held a prison
er by Ralsull inclines the authorities
here to favor a military movement
striking into the interior, instead of
at the coast.
The Temps this evening printed a dis
patch from Tangier, saying that couriers
from Fez report that the Sultan ls seek
ing to reconcile the French Minister by
granting partial satisfaction of the de
mands of France so as to prevent the de
parture of the legation.
