FOUGHT TO THE DEATH;
"Newton Bukej, Col. Tngrersol's Private
Secretary, Fatally Shot.
Cboton Laxdino, N. Y.., Aug. 1.
Newton Baker, private secretary of Col.
R. G. Ingersoll, was fatally shot four
times by Orville .-Anderson, late New
York agent of the Louisville gas company,
tonight. Anderson and family reside in
the Moody homestead , and sub-let a part
of the house to Baker ' and wife. The
two families never agreed and there were
frequent quarrels between the women of
the house. .Sometime ago these became
so serious that Anderson and Baker took
up the quarrel, aud often had hot dis
putes over the matter. The trouble be
came more serious every day,' until each
threatened the other's life. The threats
culminated tonight in one' tf the most
thrilling- duels and tragedies that ever
occurred 'here. Baker and Anderson
were attempting to adjust their difficul
ties. Mrs.' Baker came to where they
were talking and told her hnsband that
Anderson, in his (Baker's) absence, had
been behaving in an ungentlemanly
manner to her, in having' laughed sar
castically at her. Baker said to Ander
son: "That was an insnlt to'hiv wife.
and I cannot allow it' :l Both drew -revolvers.
Mrs.' Baker sprang ' between
them,. but swooned. - The men clinched.
After a short struggle, Anderson . .broke
away and shot Baker four times, mortal
ly " wounding him. Ha then coolly
walked home, where he was- arrested
afterwards. . .. ; ' s

conversion to Christianity. The. robe
itself is. tunic, about five feet long, cut
narrow at the shoulder, and gradually
widening toward the knees. . It is woven
out of one piece without any seam. : The
material is supposed to have been linen,

of purple and gold , cloth, supposed to
have -been added some time in the sev

relic. ' ' ' ; ''
A Candidate for Governor
Columbus, O.,' Aug. I. Major McKin
ley arrived here yesterday '. afternoon,
coming directly from Lakeside, Ottawa
county, where he -addressed a farmers'
picnic. In an interview he said he felt
confident of his election anil
sion to say that he was in no sense
candidate for United States senator. . He
is a candidate for governor alone, and
wants ' that distinctly understood. He
held a long conference with Chairman
Hahn, of the republican state committee
and afterwards stated that the idea of
opening' the campaign ' at Hamilton,
Campbell's old home, had been aband
oned and that he would make his -first
speech somewhere in "the' ' western re

I shall certainly De elected ; there is

AN ADDRESS BY INGALLS.
Upon the Social and Political Problem.
'! ef the Present Century.
Poet Richmond, S. I., Aug. 1 Ex-
Senator Ingalls, of Kansas, addressed ' a
large audience at Prohibition park today
on "The social and political problems of
the present century." Amongother
things he said :' ' '
The liquor question and the best way
to deal with it, is one of the : greatest
problems of the times. -I ami a resident
of one of the greatest prohibition states
and am a prohibitionist myself in prac
tice. I only take a drink when I want
it, which is not very often. In Kansas
the people have been wrestling with the
liquor question for the past ten years,
yet there is not a town in the state where
a man cannot get liquor when be wants
it. More than $900,000,000 are spent in
the United States for liquor every year,
more 'than is expended for bread and
meat and public education together. In
this country every man should be en
titled to a vote and have it bonestlv
counted. The people are the rulers and
every man should be a politician, and
woman too. The republic as a whole
has been tolerably successful, bnt from
what I have heard and seen - within - the
last fifteen Vears it ' is Still on trial. r I
believe the 'socialist is right, but I -quar
rel with his methods. It is' no wonder
men revolt when the great mass of the
American people have before them conT
tinuous toil, with no prospect but men-!
dicancy for old age. The tyrant of
wealth is more fatal than the despotism
of kings. ; I have been often -asked to
suggest a remedy, but I have ' none.
Mine is but a voice crying in the wilder

SCXMONED TO ARMS.
Attempt by Speculators to Bring;
A bout a Decline In Securities.
Barcelona, Aug. 3. Great . excite
ment was caused in this city last night
by what was for a time believed to be a
revolutionary ' movement by 'therepub
lican : party," but- which ''subsequently
proved to be a desperate attempt upon
the party of certain speculators on, the
bourse to bring alxut a decline in the
prices of securities." ' A band of -ISO men
armed with rifles and revolvers, slyly
approached the buildings and attempted
to surprise the guards, it being their in
tention to force their way' into the bar
racks. For a short time a regular battle
was fought and a number on -both sides
wounded. In the meantime the officers
stationed at the barracks. summoned the
troops to urinsand in a, very phort ' time
the attacking party surrendered and the
whole party placed under arrest. They
will be tried' ;by court martial and the
chances are they all will be shot.'' ' -' '
