Washington, D. C.— In a gallant assault, American marines and blue- jackets drove the Nicaraguan revolu tionary leader, General Zeledon, and his forces from Coyotepe and Barran- cans hills, near Masaya, after 37 min utes o f fighting, but in the action four privates o f the United States Marine Corps were killed and several were wounded. Coyotepe Hill is noted in Central American warfare as impregnable. It was never captured by assault until the Americans took it. The victory o f the Americans opened the way for the Nicaraguan government troops to assault the town o f Masaya, which they took from the revolutionists, and its starving inhab itants were relieved. The revolutionist losses were heavy, while the government force loBt 100 killed and 200 wounded. General Zeledon, the rebel, escaped, but later was cornered and killed by a troop o f Federal cavalry. One thousand American marines and bluejackets, under Lieutenant Colonel CharleB G. Long, are moving on the city o f Leon, the remaining rebel stronghold. • The American marines killed w ere: Private Ralph Victor Bobbett, Neva da, M o.; Private Charles Hays Dur ham, Junction City, K y .; Private Clarence Henry McGill, Portland, M e.; Private Harry Pollard, Medway, Mass. Admiral Southerland in reporting the battle to the Navy department, said: “ The department and the country have every reason to be proud o f the officers, marines and bluejackets who were engaged in this action.” Admiral Southerland’ B dispatches made it plain that the defeat o f the rebels was complete. Zeledon, a N ic araguan and formerly supporter o f Zelaya, fled toward the Costa Rican boundary for escape. A band o f Fed eral cavalrymen discovered him some distance from Masaya and gave fight.. When they defeated him and his fol lowers he was found fatally wounded and died later. The shedding o f American blood in Central Am erica Is expected to bring to a climax in congress the dispute over the right o f this government to intervene in Nicaragua. SL O O P CAPSIZED : FIVE PERISH Heavy Sea at Newport H arbor O ver turns Fiahing Craft. Newport, Or.— Crossing over South Spit bar with a heavy sea rolling and a crew unfamiliar with the harbor en trance, the fishing sloop Pilgrim cap sized and the crew o f five men were lost. The life-saving crew hastened to give assistance, with the launch Ollie S., but the little vessel turned turtle too quickly and dumped its human freight into the sea before any possi ble aid could have been given. Entry Refused to Prince. New Y ork— Powerful influences, it is said, worked all day Monday for the release o f Prince Ludovic Pignatelli d ’ Aragon, son o f the Spanish preten der, who chafed and fretted at his confinement at Ellis Island. The ca bles were plied with messages to es tablish or discredit the contention that he as expelled from France for run ning a gambling house and is there fore ineligible to enter the United States; also that he tried to kill him self and was likely to become a public charge. A special board o f inquiry will investigate his case. Eight Joyriders Killed. Philadelphia— A collision on a bridge in which three automobiles were in volved resulted in the death o f eight men in this city Saturday night. One o f the machines containing nine men came on the bridge at terrific speed. Its rapid approach was seen by John I. Spade, a Philadelphia contractor who was going over the bridge in the opposite direction in a motor. He tried to avoid the car but he was too late in steering out o f its way and a collision occurred. A third automobile then ran into the speeding car. ARMY OFFICERS ARRESTED.

STEAM TURBINE EXPLODES; THREE DEAD, 6 WOUNDED Newport, R. I.— The explosion o f the forward end o f the port turbine, together with the steam cheat, on the torpedo boat destroyer Walke, off Brenton’ s reef lightship, killed Lieu tenant Donald P.

The explosion came just as the Walke started on a full-speed test, in company with other destroyers. • The discipline o f the crew is said to have been perfect, and their conduct in leaping down into the steam-filled engine-room to carry out their wound ed comrades brought the highest praise from their superiors. Lieuten ant Charles R. Train, the commanding officers on the bridge at the time, handled the situation in a way to gain personal commendation from Rear Admiral Hugo Osterhaus, com mander o f the Atlantic fleet. BREAD AND BUTTER EXTRA. New York Hotelmen Also Stop Split ting Single Portions. New York— With butter selling at 41 cents a pound and flour at $6 a barrel, the hotel men o f New York have decided that their patrons will have to pay for their bread and butter now by portion, just as if it were an entree. So if you want bread and butter with your meals now it will cost you ten cents extra, that being the price agreed upon by the members o f the Hotel Men’ s association. Moreover, no more single portions o f anything are to be served to two persons. From now on only one plate and one set o f knives and forks go with a single order. By these little economies hotel men figure they can save a large sum an nually. The hotels that have actually put the “ ten-cent bread and butter” plan into effect include the Plaza.

Think Human Tears of Value. In Persia the past and present are linked by the belief that human tears are a remedy for certain diseases At every funeral, each mourner is given a sponge with which to mop off the eyes and cheeks After the burial the wet sponges are given to a priest, who squeezes the tears into bottles, which he keeps for curative purposes. This is one of the most ancient of eastern customs.
