with the sacks after the shooting, but
later was captured and taken to St.
The police had information that the
liquor was to be delivered somewhere
In the neighborhood of East Tenth
and Division streets and were on the
watch for it. Russell saw two auto
mobiles stop at East Thirteenth and
Division streets and climbed on the
running board of one of the machines.
Ho felt of the sacks in the bottom
of the tonneau and said they con
tained bottles. Both machines started
up, and the policeman, after calling
to the drivers to stop, fired three
shots in the air.
Leading; Machine Ecpe.
The leading machine speeded up
and escaped. The second car, with
the policeman still on the running
board, continued up Division street
to East Eighteenth street. Slowing
down in the shadow of a. building,
the policeman said. Kunz called to
another man who was in the front
eeat with him.
"Get him now, Tony," Kunz was al
leged to have said.
Thereupon- the policeman struck
Kunz on the head with his revolver.
Tony Jumped out of the automobile
on the side opposite the policeman
and fled. Kunz was alleged to have
jumped out of the car and attacked
the policeman, who struggled with
him until he got Kunz down and
pressed the muzzle of his revolver
against his side.
Stop or I'll shoot." RuescU warned

The policeman says Kunz promised
to surrender and was allowed to get
up. As Kunz got to his feet the po
liceman said he pulled a revolver
from his pocket and pulled the trig
ger. The policeman did likewise.
Kunz revolver was unloaded, how
ever, and during the fight the cylin
rir of Russell's revolver had turned
so that the hammer fell on an empty
rartrldire. The two snapped their
weapons at each other several times
at point-blank range, men xvuodcho
revolver exploded a shell and Kunz
fell to the ground.
The policeman stopped to reload,
thinking perhaps "Tony-' might return
and while he was finding cartridges,
Kunz Jumped to his feet, and. accord
ing to Russell, snapped his empty re
volver at the policeman again and
then jumped in his automobile and

him and although there was no liquor
in the machine, revenue of ficers seized
the machine pending Kunz' trial.
Kunz Is said to have admitted at
the hospital that he had liquor in the
automobile. According to the police,
he maintained that he did not know
what had become of it.
Kunz is a chauffeur and is said to
have been driving the automobile for
a share of the profits. The bullet
struck Just below his heart and went
olear through his body. He was ex
pected to recover.

Domestic Fuel Not to Get Priority
Over Kiport Product.
WASHINGTON", July 3. The Inter
state Commerce commission today
refused to modify its order giving
shipments to tidewater of coal for
domestic use priority over the move
ment of coal for export. Modifica
tion had been asked by Secretary Al
exander, who said the order would
have a "disastrous effect" upon Amer
ican foreign trade and shipping.
The secretary informed the com
mission that American companies
having legal contracts to supply coal
to Argentina and other South Ameri
can countries were threatened with
inability to fulfill them "and result
ant suits that may drive them out of
Mr. Alexander told the commission
he also had received a letter from
the shipping board declaring "the
shutting off of coal exports will de

-At the opening of the 21st ballot. all
eyes were turned toward Pennsylvania.-
Whaf Pennsylvania does Geor

people claimed that when the break
came they would have the best of it
in both states.
When Chairman Robinson attempt
ed to announce the results of the
20th ballot he got as far as the name
of McAdoo when the McAdoo crowd,
apparently all set with a demonstra
tion and with the accomplishments
all fixed, began to whoop it up again.
The band in the gallery, which was
silent when the Bryan people at

champion, blared and boomed with

Many women crowded the floor and
took part in the McAdoo demonstra
tion. Many of them who danced
about in the winding line of McAdoo
boomers or who were carted along
on the shoulders of men were neither
delegates nor alternates to the con
vention, but spectators who invaded
the floor in the excitement of the j
moment and took part in whooping '
up the circus.
Noise Is Continued. J
There appeared to be no stopping :
the noise for McAdoo. Although not i
participated in by a large proportion i
of delegates, it made up in volume
for that which It lacked in numbers
and whenever the racket on the floor ;
gave evidence of a slump the gal- j
lerles bolstered it up with new en
thusiasm. Chairman Robinson did
not seem to be much disturbed at '
the way the noise makers were using ;
up time, and there was a suggestion '
that the convention officials were
perfectly agreeable to letting the j
convention wear itself down" to the
point of exhaustion where it would ;
not resist an adjournment. i

and shouted and hooted and the con
vention looked for all the world as if
it had gone mad.
Demonstration Dies Array.
Then, as suddenly as it began, the
demonstration began to die away, and
the convention went back to examine
Itself and see whether it had shouted
and wiggled itself out of a deadlock.
It apparently had not and proceeded
to the 19th ballot.
Cox gained two in Alabama, one
from McAdoo and one from Davis.
The 20th ballot still found the con
vention making no progress.
With Cox, McAdoo and Palmer In
a deadlock in that order, prospects
for a nomination were bad.
At the conclusion of the announce
ment of the 20th ballot, Thomas J.
Spcllacy of Connecticut moved an ad
journment until Monday morning.
Senator Pat Harrison of the Missis
sippi delegation, a Cox manager, de
manded a rollcall vote on the ad
journment proposition. It was or
dered. Cox People Force Rollcall.
The Cox people resisted the attempt
and forced a rollcall. By a vote of
638 to 447 the convention refused to
adjourn and the Cox people won that
mttch of a victory.
Then, after the adjournment reso
lution had been beaten once by the
efforts of the Cox people. Senator
Harrison made a new motion that the
convention recess until Monday morn
ing at 10 o'clock. It was said that
Georgia was about to give some of
her 28 Palmer votes to McAdoo as a
complimentary vote and that the Cox
people wanted to avoid it.
A rollcall on Harrison's motion was
demanded and Harrison withdrew his
motion, and the convention went back
to the rollcall of states for nominees.

Disease Takes Heavy Toll Yearly in
Blindness In Spain.
MADRID. Twenty-five thousand
sightless persons are added to the
population of Spain every year owing
to inattention to cases of smallpox,
measles, scarletlna, meningitis and
the after-effects of sexual maladies,
writes Count de la Fa in El Sol.
The count asks why Spain thus
makes people blind and then abandons
them to a life of miserable mendi
cancy In many cases. He points out
that they are neither properly cared
for nor educated so that they may
take care of themselves.
He says most of the institutions for
the blind and there are many such
establishments in the country with
rare exceptions are inefficient and
antiquated, with teachers lacking the
necessary, training. The blind are
taught very superficially basket and
box making or the most elementary
music. He declares - nobody believes
in their efficacy, although many give
subscriptions out of pure charity.
The count deplores "the traditional

CAT ADOPTS COYOTES
Two Kansas Puppies Find Home
With Family of Kittens.
COTTONWOOD FALLS, Kan. In
addition to an already large family
of kittens, a cat which belongs to the
M. Brent family of South Fork has
adopted two coyote puppies.
Several weeks ago when W. W.
Buckbee and R. H. Carter, who live
near the Brent farm, found the den of
a coyote on the latter's place they
captured several very small coyote
puppies. When shown at the Brent
farmhouse some of the children want
ed the little coyotes and paid their
captors for two of them.
The little coyotes were placed
among the kittens belonging to the
jold family cat and, after a careful
scrutiny and a few sniffs, the old cat
began mothering them the same as
her own kittens.
Now the cat's family of kittens and
the two adopted coyote puppies are
nearly two months old and all live
together happily and appear to be
making the most of life. The coyotes
are getting much bigger than the kit
tens and are playful and mischievous.
In the rough-and-tumble tussles they
are continually staging the coyotes
are the stronger, but the kittens are
more active, so it is about an even
match as yet. While the coyotes can
easily wallop the kittens in a saright
out fight, yet the latter, when on the
defensive, will curl up on their backs
and keep the coyote puppies at bay by
the rapid kicks of hind legs and'the
scratching of their sharp claws.
STRATHMORE. Alta. Twenty
eight head of beef cat. lie 11 months
old have been sold by the Canadian
Pacific railway supply farm at an
average price of $110. The average
weight of the animals was 721 pounds
and each had been ensilage fed dur
