STRIFE LEADS TO
A Deadly Fight at Colorado
ONE KILLED--0M WOUNDED
Teller Men Had Possession of an Opera
House Which Was Stormed by the
Wolcott Gang, Reinforced by the
Colobado Springs, Sept. 7. Early
this morning a riot occurred in the Colo
rado Springs opera house between twen
two men representing State Chairman
Blood and theTeller faction of theSilyer
Republican party, and Sheriff Boynton
and Chief of Police Gastright, with
about seventy-five men representing the
Charles Harris, of Denver, was killed,
being ehot through the bowels. An un
known man was seriously injured.
The opera house is now in possession
of the police, deputy sheriffs aud sup
porters of ex-Chairman Broad.
Colorado Springs, Sept. 7. Particu
lars of this morning's deadly fight in
the Colorado Springs opera house are as
The clash between the two factions
grew out of the action of National Chair
man Lownew in removing Richard
Broad from the chairmanship of the
etate committee on the ground of dis
loyalty to the Silver Republican party
and the cause it stands for, it being
alleged he had joined in a conspiracy
with friends of Senator Wolcott to defeat
the proposed fusion with the Democrats
At 1 o'clock this morning the Wolcott
Stevens faction applied to Judge Lunt
for a writ of mandamus compelling
Chairman Blood, who was then in pos
session of the opera house, to turn the
building over to ex-Chairman Broad.
The writ was refused.
"At 4:10 this morning," said ex
Mayor Plumb, "twenty-one of us were
in the opera house. Suddenly a fusil
lade of shots were fired through both
the front and side doors. Then in a
second the doors were burst open and in
rushed seventy-five to one hundred men.
There was constant firing in all parts of
the hall, we replying as best we conld.
I saw one man tall. They carried him
to the balcony and laid him down. He
died in a few minutes. Another man
was injured. We were forced out of the
building. Sheriff Boynton and Chief of
Police Gastright were in the foremost
The police and sheriff's officers claim
the attack was made entirely by men
brought by the Wolcott-Stevens faction
from Denver. They say they only
rushed in after the attack began. The
attack was made upon the building from
front and rear.
Sheriff Boynton and Chief Gastright
took control of the opera house and made
a thorough search. The sheriff said they
discovered a whole arsenal in the build
ing. The officers seized six Winches
ters and ten revolvers.
James A. Howse, Walter Russell, J.
X. Lang and A. C. Smith were arrested.
Sheriff Boynton allowed the men who
participated in the riot to leave the city
this morning without being molested. A
majority of the mob which attacked the
theater went to Denver by the first
After battering in the doors, seventy
five men rushed into the building,
shooting their revolvers. The ceiling is
full of holes. The attacking party fired
into the air in the hope of frightening
guards into admission. The guards
were scattered in groups about the audi
torium, where they could best command
the entrance, and they returned the
Those who participated ia the riot say
that over one hundred anl fifty shots
were fired within a few m n tes. The
attacking party finally re: v. i the cen
ter of the house and the t u ris fled to
the street. The latter had -i- one round
of ammunition, while :ne attackers
trebled them in number?, and had two
revolvers each and an abundance of am
munition. Chairman Blood has issued a state
ment in which he says that after the'
county Silver Republican conyenttion
closed last night he was in possession of
the keys ot the opera house, and, learn
ing of a proposed atteoip to oust his fac
tion, he placed guards therein. He claims
there was no authority of law issued to
the opposing faction, and that ex-Chairman
Broad imported thugs from Denyer
to create a disturbance.
Ex-Chairman Broad has issued a
counter statement, claiming the riot was
caused by the incendiary epeeches of the
Teller Republicans at last night's coun
ty convention. He says the manager oi
the opera house violated his contract
with him in delivering the keys to
It is said the man injured was John
Russell, ex-Chief of Police of Denver,
now special timber inspector under the
McKinley administration. Walter Rus

City had a narrow escape from destruc

it required the strenuous efforts of all

keep it from spreading to the residences
on that side of the river. The fire is

HERO SHIPS TO
Gloucester, Formerly Morgan's Yacht
Corsair, One of the Auxiliaries,
to be Retained, Because of Her
Prominent Part in the Destruc
tion of Cervera's Fleet.
Washington, Sept. 7. It is the de
sire of the navy department that all
vessels that won fame in tue late war
with Spain shall be kept by the govern
ment. The board appointed to consider
what disposition should be made of the
auxiliary ships bought or chartered dur
the war is now at work, and had already
recommended the selling of a number
of vessels. All of the auxiliary coast
defense fleet has now disappeared, dis
position having been made of the vessels
and officers and men having been dis
charged. But there are a number of boats, like
the Gloucester, which, though bought
for temporary service and for service
that was not supposed to be warlike,
have made a lasting impression and will
remain forever as glorious names in the
annals of the American nayy. The de
partment thinks it would be a great
misfortune if these ships should be sold.
The Gloucester has become already
as much a part of the glory of the navy
of this country as the Constitution or
the Oregon or theOlimpia. Other ves
sels in equal or less degree have won
fame in the recent war. It would be a
distinct loss to the navy to have these
go back to their old role as pleasure
yachts or traffic carriers.
It was said at the department today
that if the board should decide it best
co dispose of the ships, the list of them
w ill be turned oyer to other branches of
the department, such as the revenue or
light house service, to see. if they could
not be purchased for use along tne
coast and thus be kept within the
country's service. It is hoped by the
department, however, thai this will not
be made necessary, as it is very anxious
to have the Gloucester and peers re
tained in the navv itself.

Official Record Shows That 264 Of

and Warships During
the War With Spain.
Washington, Sept. 7. The official
record of the war department, as com
pleted, shows that there were 33 officers
and 231 enlisted men of the army, 261 in
all, killed in battle during the war with
Spain. These causualties include all
the lives lost by the army in the battles
in the Philippines as well as those in
Cuba and Porto Rico.
The percentage of officers killed is
strikingly lagre, and ia said to be un
precedented in the battles of the world.
The contrast is especially striking in the
case of the battle of Omdarman, where,
although the loss of life was heavy, the
list of killed included only one officer of
the British armv.
