Police of Springfield Also Foil Attempt
to Cut Wires.
Springfield, 111., Aug. 17. Two
deaths from injuries received in pre
vious mob fights, the attempted cutting
of the fire alarm wires, the exoneratiou
of Private J. B. Klein, company A
First Illinois Infantry, by a court of
Inquiry for the killing of Earl Nelson
at Kankakee Saturday, and tho pursuit
of a mob by guardsmen wero tho chief
developments In the race war In Spring
field yesterday.
The attempt to cut tho telephone and
firo alarm wires leading to the city hal
was not successful. A policeman saw
three men on top of an outbuilding try.
mg to reach the lines overhead. He
turned in an alarm to the headquarters
of General Wells, commanding a pro
visional brigade, and tho latter dis
patched a wagonload of soldiers to the
scene. They arrived before the trio
had done any damage. The would-be
wirecutters fled, leaving their nippers
A genuine scare was caused at the
headquarters in the arsenal last night
after a squad had been sent to disperse
a crowd at Allen and Sprint? streets.
Five minutes later a report reached
Lieutenant Colonel Eddy that shots had
been fired in the threatened district.
Ho immediately sent a full platoon to
the place to reinforce the squad. When
the additional, soldiers appeared the
crowd broko and ran. The soldiers
pursued them for several blocks and
the district, which is near the scene of
Saturday night's lynching, was in an
uproar for a few minutes.
The arsenal was crowded last nirht
with negro refugees from Springfield
and Burrounding towns. About 200
men, women and children sought shelt
er in the building and slept on the floor
or in chairs.
Alarms were more numerous last
evening than on former nights. In no
inglo case, however, up to a late hour,
was there any circumstance which com
pelled the use of force. A fire early in
the evening at East Mason and Fourth
streets brought out the largest crowd,
but it wa3 composed mostly of curiosity
seekers and was handled easily. Three
barns were destroyed by the fire,
which is supposed to have been started
by mischevious boys.
Governor Deneen explained last
night that the disposition of troops at
the capitol was not because of any ap
prehension of danger to that edifice,
but because the grounds offered excel
lent camping facilities and were a
strategic point from which Colonel
Sanborn could control the situation
west of Seventh street.
The state's attorney
county called on the
afternoon in an effort to have arrested
the soldier who stabbed Earl Nelson
with abayonet in the First Regiment
tram at Kankakee last night. The
governor referred him to the military

Castro Crows Over Holland, Although
No Blood Shed.
Willemstad, Aug. 17. It seems that
the authorities refused to permit the
Dutch cruiser Gelderland to enter the
port of La Guayra, and this act was re
garded at the capital in the light of a
defeat for The Netherlands men-of-war.
It was celebrated with a recep
tion by President Castro, at which
there was music and dancing, and,
when the president made his way
through the streets of the city, he was
given an ovation.
An official of the customs house at
La Guayra, wno had communication
with the Gelderland has been dismissed.
The Netherlands vessel went into La
Guayra August 1 and, when she re
turned here, her commander said that
all communication with the port had
been refused. The port authorities
eclined to accept an official communi
cation to the German minister, who is
in charge of the interests of the Neth
erlands in Curacoa.
The population of Curacoa has peti
tioned tho governor of the colopy to
declare free the importation and ex
portation of arms and ammunition.
Gold Amalgam Stolen.
Reno, Nev., Aug. 17. A sack of
amalgam shipped by express to the
Carson mint from Manhattan, a few
days ago has disappeared. About a
week ago two sacks, containing gold
amalgam worth several thousand dol
lars, wero shipped from Manhattan.
Only one arrived at tho mint. Where
the other is is a mystery. Detectivos
havo found that the shipment, instead
of going via Mound House, came to
Reno and was forwarded. They be
lieve one of tho sacks was stolen while
they wero being transferred in Reno.
Bloody Yaquis Raiding Again.
Tucson, Ariz., Aug. 17. Meager re
ports havo beon received hore of a Ya
qui raid in Mexico in which four men
were killed. A raiding band attacked
tho ranch of Jesus Mojia and killed the
owner and his three daughters. A
young son was carried away. Other

Two More Deaths Recorded at
Springfield, Illinois.
Frequent Shots From Ambush at tho
Troops Serve to Keep Whole
Town In Uproar.
Springfield III., Aug. 18. Follow
ing the addition of two victims to tho
death list, sporadic outbursts of law
lessness in various parts of the city
and increased symptoms generally that
the mob spirit still rules Springfield.
Governor Deneen last night issued six
proclamations offering rewards amount
ing to $1,200 for the arrest and con
viction of the riot leaders. The deaths
now number five, but sihee one death
was due only indirectly to the disturb
ance, no account has been taken of it.
The two new victims were J. W.
Scott and a three-weeks old negro
baby, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Lawrence Payne, of Springfield. Tho
baby succumbed to exposure when its
parents started to walk from Spring
field to Pittsfield in an effort to avoid
persecution. Scott died in a hospital
from wounds received Friday" night.
Scattered sections of the city wero
in an uproar at different times during
the early part of the night. Harvard
park was again the storm center.
Twice patrols were fired upon in that
vicinity, but in neither case was any
one injured. This is the section to
which troops were called Sunday night
by similar occurrences. Over in the
western end of town in the vicinity of
the state house and arsenal there were
several cases of revolver firing by
The marauders traveled in groups of
two or three, obeying the orders of the
militia patrols to keep moving, but as
soon as they were well past the group3
of soldiers they drew their revolvers
and fired into the air and fled down Bide
streets, escaping in the darkness.
Two arrests, apparently not connect
ed with the rioting, added excitement
and served to frighten timid residents.
As a consequence calls for troops were
frequent and the militia had a hard
A picket from Company L, Fifth
infantry, fired five shots at a negro
who attempted to break the sentry line
at Eighth and Jefferson streets early
today. The negro escaped.
Thomas Richardson, a brother of the
negro accused of attacking Mrs. Mabel
Hallam, fled to Mississippi last night
after he had been attacked by white
men in Harvard park. Tom Richard
son was a teamster, and when attacked
he jumped from his wagon, leaving the
horses standing in the street, went to
the railroad station, and boarded a
train for the South.
Canadian Statesman Says America
Has Cause to Fear.
Montreal. Aug. 18. T. Hamer
Greenwood, the most prominent Cana
dian in the British parliament, and a
member of the executive committee of
the Liberal party of Great Britain, who
is visiting Canada, predicts a conflict
between Japan and America. He says :
'Japan is preparing to restrict the
overflow of her people into countries
where they are not wanted, but it does
not require a prophet to foresee that
the feeling between these swarthy
John Bulls of the Pacific and the white
races of America may soon grow acute
and may mean war. Just now Japan
is having a struggle to make both ends
meet in national finance and has cut
down her naval and military program
by large amounts.
"Ihave no doubt myself, however,
that when she gets over the enormous
losses of the late war with Russia
there will be trouble. If she can stir
up and force an alliance with half
awakened China the yellow peril will
bo a reality." r
