Federal Believed to Have Begun
Advance on G nay mas.
NOGALES. Ariz.. May 2. The only
apparent result of the shelling of Em-
palme today on the state troops was
the killing of an entire family.
A shell from the gunboat Guerrero
burst over a house in a suburb of the
town, killing a man and his wife and
their several children. No Americans
were reported wounded.
Rifle fire late today indicated that
the Federals had begun a movement in
nursult'of the fleeing Constitutional-
. Ists. whose hasty exit caused the shell
ing on the part of the Federal boat.
It was believed the f ederal reinforce
ments recently arriving at Guaymas
had begun an advance.
The state troops left on trains con
stating of 17 engines and 40 boxcars,
all the available railway equipment.
Thus any pursuit of the Federals by
rail was prevented.
General Pedro OJeda. whose daring
defense of Naco, Sonora, occasioned
much official recognition, baa been
made commander of the first military
zone, including Sonora state. A con
sulate report says that he has sailed
for Guaymas to take the field against
the same insurgents who drove him
from Naco only after a gruelling cam
paign of many weeks.

"A Nautical Knot," a rollicking.
tuneful and Interesting operetta, full
of pleasing and amusing Incidents, was
presented last night at the Jefferson
High School by several gifted members
of the glee clubs of the school. Misa
Fay Wentx. who has a sweet soprano
voice, took the part of Julia, the belle
of Barnsrapoole; Miss Daisy Gibson,
contralto, appeared as Nance. Julia's
friend. Both girls did some good act
ing and sang well. A thread of ro
mance, enough love making and some
jolly sailors, all essential parts of a
nautical play, contributed much toward
the charm of the evening. Each mem
ber of the cast did unusually well, and
there was little of the amateurishness
often noticed in school affairs.
The same programme will be pre
sented again tonight, and the excel
lence of the operetta assures a- large
attendance. The complete cast is as

trolmen under suspension as a result
of accusations made by members of the
so-called "Dunco ring." The indict
ments Include a second accusation
against Frank Esola, former detective,
now patrolman, who was charged with
bribery in an Indictment returned two
days ago.
The eight men are: Louis Droulette,
former detective, a patrolman when

W. F. McIIugh, former detective, a pa

Black Hand Slakes Threat.
Shortly before the indictments were
voted a new clement, the Italian black
hand, disclosed itself as a development,
when Caesar Roc hi, cafe proprietor and
one of the Important witnesses against
the police, burst inte the Hall of Jus
tice weeping and beset with fear. He
exhibited a typical black hand letter
he had received today. Marked with
the sinister skull and crossbones. the
note Was a demand that he keep si
lent and make no further disclosures
on pain of losing his life. Quavering
with every sign of terror, he demanded
protection and asked for a body guard.
It was Ronchl who declared he had
received from members of the bunco
rings bulky envelopes which be turned
over to detectives and police. These
envelopes, be asserted, contained
Alleged Bribery Described.
Probably the most Important testi
mony the jury , has heard was given
today by Dlsmo Dentgri, an ex-as
semblyman, who has a drugstore in the
Latin quarter, and by Joe Secco, a cafe
proprietor. Joe Secco was arrested
a few davs ago following his appear
ance before the grand jury. It was in
consideration of the revelations he
made today, it is said, that the charge
of perjury which was held over him
was, withdrawn and he was released.
Secco and Denigrl related in detail
incidents in connection with the nay
ment of 700 to Frank Esola. The in
cident they described as having oc
curred In September, 191L Two men,
said to be members of the Italian ring,
and said to have come here from Se
attle, haa been arrested. Only one
name, that of Frank Ross, could the
two witnesses recall.
Denigri, so the testimony ran, learned
from the police that the two could
be freed If they had money to pay to
have it done. He informed Secco of
this. From the two in jail Secco ob
tained $700. he said, and while still in
the Hall of Justice be turned the money
over to Denigrl. Both testified that
Denigrl gave it to Esola. The follow

rancy were made against the two in
jail and at their hearing they were

"The Senate is not concerned in the

The Senator declared he knew of one

CHARLESTON. W.' Va., May s2. A

today many miners from tents along
Cabin and Paint creeks to various mines
throughout Kanawha County, where
employment awaited them. The men
and their families had been living in
the tents since April, 1812, when a
strike was called. The trouble was

Inspector Sfurtha, Xot Previously
Involved, Said to Have Tried to
Gain Immunity.
NEW YORK, May J. District Attor
ney Whitman Jumped Into the breach
today when- the defense in the trial of
the four former police inspectors aC'
cused of conspiracy made an effort to
rule but important testimony Involving
one of the quartet.
The Drosecutor motioned Al Thomas,
a detective on the District Attorney's
staff, from the stand and took bis
aide's place as a witness. Thomas bad
(riven testimony to show mat ex-in-
spector Murtha, who had not been in
volved by evidence previously pro
duced, had gone to the prosecutors
home arter being inaictea ana sougnt
immunity as a reward for turning
state's evidence. The defense's objec
tion to tha revelation as a breach of
confidence caused Mr. Whitman's intervention.
The prosecutor denied that Murtha s
talk, heard by Thomas, had been con
fidential. Shortly after the prosecu
tor's appearance as a witness the state
rested the case. Counsel for the de
fense called half a dozen witnesses in
an effort to show that the -x-inspec-
tors, Murtha, Thompson, Hussey and
Sweeney, did not conspire to obstruct
justice by bribing grand jury witnesses
to leave tne state, as cnargea in the

Nothing Uncertain About
This Water System
You don't take even the smallest chance when you buy
- a Mitchell Water System. If you ' have any doubt
about this we will take you to a dozen homes where
the system is giving satisfaction day in and day
out. We will take you to the homes in which our first
. systems were installed and you will find the same sat
isfaction, the same enthusiastic owners. We have been
putting them in for more than 5 years. We know how
they should be built to give satisfaction, what capacity
the system should have to furnish water for your in
dividual requirements, and we know how to install the
system so it will give desirable service and continue
to do so year after year.
The service of the Mitchell-Leader System enables the owner to
have his bath, his washrooms, his lavatories, anything and every
thing that depends upon a dependable stipply of water under
pressure, including PROTECTION AGAINST FIRE. Come and
let us show the simple principle of the system and quote you a
