Williams, Jr. president of the California Jockey Club andThrcxton Beale. ex-United States minister to Persia and Greece. Mar riott is publisher of the San Francis Sews-Letter. The following account of the shooting was given by Marriott be fore he waa put under anthesthetics at the hospital : "An apioinimeni was niaie iv tele phone for a meeting last evening by Thruxton and Beale. About 9 o'clock Beale and Wjlliam came to the house. I answered the door myself. When reaching out to take their hat, Beale struck me a heavy blow in the fa?e, and made another smash at me witlfhi fist. 'Stnas'i him ! the 1 cried Williams. I retreated, as the blow on the forehead alncist blinded me. I then started ustairs, and Williams be gan shooting." Williams, on Is-imt interviewed said: "Yes, Beale and myself did the shoot ing, but tiicre is noiiiiiig to say. We considered it our dutv to pnnish Mar riott for the publication of. an article last week reflecting on the reputation of a young lady." Neither Williams nor IVals, although admitting the assault, would say who i I lie shooting. After the shooting, they went to the Pacific I'nion Club, where they were placed mi ler arrest. Marriott's wounds, it is thought, will not prove fatally. At a late hour last night Wiiii.iins and Beale w ere released on M,HM lsnda each. MABRIOTT KM-OVKMKO. Sax Fbancisco, Sept. 3.

A Tragic Carnival Attraction Expo sition 3ite Selected Panic on Martinique Strike Pre? tically Settled. Portland, Sept. 7. In an attempt to loop the loop, John Larscn was dashed 75 feet through the air aud down into the heart of the throng of spectators. He owed his life to the fact that three men in the crowd were unabl; to get out of the way. The Carnival was a drama wr.h a deep uote of tragedy. "See him come," said a jesting crowd, but in a second more every heart 'stood till. Ti ose who for a moment ago were eager to crack a joke about the loop-thc-loop were now anxious to know how many people were killed. That a man could sail through the air for 75 feet, hanging to a 95-pouud bicycle, light upon the heads of a dense crowd and no one be killed did not seem possible to any. The strain was greatly relieved when Larsen appeared before them apparently uuhurt. The anxiety was now concerning -the people upou whom he had fallen. As it was gradually learned that but three people were h irt by the accident, aud these not seriously, many remarks were heard as to the unnecessary danger that had been undergone for the sake of a few moments' amusement. P. G. George, Ja.ck Belmont and J. Elsworth sustained slight injuries from being struck, either by the rider or the bicyeje, but none of the injuries will prove serious. The feat will probably not be attempted again PRUNES AJCH IN DEMAND. Buyers From France In Oregon, Making Contracts.

King Edward Concerned. Washinotov, jot. 5. President Roev;t has received from King Ed ward and President Dias of Mexico mes sages congratulating Litn upon bis es- cajie from serious injary in the accident of Wednelay last. Th mesaie sent by King Elward to the President is as follows: "Loadjn, Sept. 5. To the President of the I mtod State : The new s of the accident canned me the decit contvrn I earnestly trust to receive farther assur ance that it ha not resulted in serious consequence to yourself. "EDWARD, I. n.'; The Pittsficld AcclJcot. It jwiii from I he detailed account of tuc accident at I'itttlr!d, in which one man was kilicd and several hurt, in rinding the President, who, with hi companion, narrowly escaped a ci 5 leu death, that there was earWiie on the irt f Imth the motorui.in m the car and the driver of the carriage-. There was the enwsing, the car tracks aj- jorently croiii tin wajon rad at an acute angle; tlte iikotorm::n mut have known that a carriage was Iikelv to cross at anv moment, and the driver of the carriage slmuld have calculated that a car was likelr to come along at anv moment ; therefore ltii should have been sharply in the lookout. And what were the President's ontriding guards aliout that they did not ride ahead and at such a place and make sure that the carriage would nut lie driven into lanegr there That it was dusty, so that the vision was oliscurvd, is no ex cuse: all the more reason then ft r ex ercising caution, as a vessel must do in fog. "IXjwn grade' Still another reason for keepiug watch, and holding the car well in hand; but it was not even supplied w ith air brakes. The Nation, whilo regretting the death of tho faithful guard Craig, re joices that the President escape I w ith but trilling injuries. Possibly the ac cident may serve as a lesson to motor- men and drivers and to incline some of them to the exercise of greater care.
