ed choir of the church, singing a pro

mony began with the reading of the
prayer of the morning. Then came
the sermon by Rt. Rev, Lelghton

Story of How it Occurred.
Walla Walla, May 1. Private Fred
Roberts, of the Tenth Battery, is ly
ing at the hospital -in this city, dan
gerously near death, from a pistol
shot wound inflicted by Private
Frank Dunlap, of the Thirtieth Bat
tery. The shot was fired about S o'clock
Wednesday evening, on West Pop
lar street, and the cause is said, to
have come from a feud that started
some time ago over a woman. Dun
lap tells the following story about
the cause of the trouble:
Story of the Shooting.
"I had my first troubJewith Rob
erts several mouths ago. I was com
ing up the street and met Roberts.
He refused to allow me to pass and
shoved me from the walk. Later we
met in a saloon and Roberts told me
he wanted to be my friend. We
shook hands and the matter was
"Last Saturday night, in company
with a yuong woman, I attended the
Salvation Army meeting. I left my
overcoat at a cigar store on the cor
ner, and, after the services, told the
girl to remain in the barracks until
I got my coat. In the street I met
a lot of soldiers from the battery,
Roberts among them. Roberts call
ed me to one side and we had words.
I told him I did not want any trouble
with him, but he struck me in the
"Musician Kern Informed me that
Roberts had a gun and told me to
look out. Sergeant Sutton also In
formed me to be on my guard for the
gang had threatened to fix me. Aside
from that Roberts told several others
that he was going to put me in the
Last evening, in company with
MicCutcheon and two or three of the
boys, I started down town. Roberts
and Mike Rodell, another soldier,
were standing at the little bridge
just outside the reservation, and
when I saw them I told the other
boys to wait until I went back to
"When I returned, Will Kohl, a ci
vilian, had joined the men at the
bridge and McCutcheon and I pass
ed the three and started up town
Rodell had a wheel and he overtook
us in front of Mrs. Aubln's house
and ordered us to stop. I told him I
didn't want to have any trouble, and
when McCutcheon stepped up to my
side Mike Rodell said:
The Attack Upon Dunlap.
" 'What have you got to do with
this?' and knocked him from the
walk. Then he struck McCutcheon
with a rock. Roberts and Kohl were
nearlng us at the time and I drew
my gun and ordered them to stop.
They advanced. I backed from them
and repeated my command. Still
they came and I fired."
Dunlap went straight to the garri
son after shooting and was arrested
and turned over to the officers. He
and Roberts were recent additions
to the barracks and were classed as
"rookies." Roberts may recover, but
the chances are against him. The
bullet passed through his body half

as, Will Be Tried by Court-Martial
Under Direct O'ders of President
Washington, May 1. President
Havemeyer, of the sugar trust, ap
peared before tho senate Cuban rela
tions committee today, when tho in
quiry began into the question as to
thb amount of Cuban sugar owned
and controlled by the trust. Ho said
the trust now owns about a 10-days'
supply of Cuban sugar and denied
that tho trust had been buying up oi
seeking to control a largo proportion
of the Cuban sugar .crop.
Havemeyer denied that ho had
served notice on the beet sugar men
that he would control the sugar trade
or drive them out of the business;
he admitted that at times ho had
sold sugar a less than cost and de
clared he would rather give sugar
away than lose his fair percentage
of the trade; that he had .no antag
onism to beet sugar industry, as he
was too greatly interested in it him
self. Ho thought it had been encour
aged, because it was a good policy
to keep all the farmers of the coun
try profitably employed. He said his
company controlled G5 per cent of
the refined sugar product of this
country .-and was therefore the mas
ter of the situation.
