GREEKS 1 BATTLE
MUTINOUS NAVAL OFFICERS IN
TORPEDO BOATS ATTACK
LITTLE DAMAGE IS DONE
Hifjhting in Which the Field Batteries
Also Take Part, Lasts for Twenty
Minutes Will Suppress Outbreak
Athens, Nov. 1. A natal battle
was fought at Salamla, the ancient
port, where, over two centuries ago,
the Persians suffered an Ignominious
defeat by Themlstocles.
The correspondent has Just returned
here from Scaramnnga, whence he
witnessed 20 minutes of fighting be
tween field batteries and big warships
on the one side, and the mutinous
band of naval officers, which quitted
the capital Wednesday with torpedo
boats, on the other.
Torpedo Boat Hit.
Some of the projectiles struck the
arsenal buildings, but the correspond
ent saw only one shell 'hit a torpedo
boat, the Sphendona, which Immedi
ately was enveloped In a cloud of
During the action the torpedo-boats
gradually retired, steamng backwards
until they obtained the shelter of the
headland, when the firing ceased. The
rebel vessels, while the engagement
was In progress, returned the fire of
the warships and field batteries, but
apparently little damage was done on
either side. The rebels were led by
Lieut. Tlbaldos, and reported to have
numbered 300 men.
The position of the mutinous torpedo-boats
resembles that of the Rus
sian battleship Knlaz Potemkine,
which mutinied In 1905, and fired on
Odessa and then roamed the Black
sea for several weeks, and the govern
ment Is apprehensive as to where it
next will hear of them. It Is rumored
that they have gone toward the Island
of Crete. "
In the chamber of deputies Premier
Mavromchalls said the government
was determined to suppress the out
break by force. The ministers
he said, were occupied In reforms In
all branches of the administration and
would not neglect the navy. There
fore, the officers' Impatience was un
justified. The premier added, however,
that if the naval officers had been led
astray they still had time to rehabili
POLICE FIGHT WITH ROBBERS
Light In Office Betrays Thieves Sur
render After Twenty 8hots Are
Fired After Them.
Chicago, No. 1. More than 20
shots were fired by two detectives
In the pursuit of two suspects follow
ing an attempted burglary of the Cres
cent Electric Company, West Jackson
boulevard and Canal street. The
chase continued four blocks, until the
fugitives surrendered In the shadows
of St. Patrick church, Desplalnes and
West Adams streets.
Detectives Burton and Fee of the
Desplalnes street station were sum
moned to the electric concern by citi
zens who had been attracted by a
light In the office. The robbers, who
had forced an entrance with a
"Jimmy," fled from the rear of the
building when the detectives ap
proached. Brooklyn Has Water Famine.
New York, Nov. 1. Unless the city
quickly pays a man who has been sup
plying one-tenth of the water con
sumed by Brooklyn, that borough will
suffer a water famine. Asserting the
city owes him $130,000, the contractor

HUNT FOR WOMAN
IN BIG SWINDLE
Said to Be Chief Pilot In Directory
Frauds Over $500,000
Chicago, Nov. 1. Search is being
made fur a woman supposed to be the
head of a gang of directory swindlers,
which Is said to have gleaned half a
million dollars by its operations.
Two members of the gang have
Evidence was adduced In a second
trial, begun while the Jury was still
out in the first case, that this remark
able woman was Mrs. Sarah A. Bow
en, who, with her hiiBband, Arthur A
Bowen, Is a fugitive.
The state expects to show that it
was Mrs. Bowen who stood on the
bridge of the piratical commercial
craft and piloted it through legal
shoals, grand jury rocks and police
narrows Into the fat harbors of plen
ttf where business houses were looted
all over the United States. That a
delicate feminine hand was at the til
ler is Indicated by the manner in
which the fraud was carried on. So
cunningly planned and executed were
the expeditions Into the realms of
wary and conservative business that
men of tried and true conservatism
were completely hoodwinked.
Ingeniously worded contracts were
signed In such a manner that when
the portion bearing the signature was
torn off there was left a neat little
prlmlssory note for several hundred
dollars. Mrs. Bowen also handled the
money thus gained, according to Infor
mation' in poRsesston of the state, and
dealt It out In portions according td
her own Judgment for the further ex
ploitation of the scheme. The. men
In the deal were her pawns and it was
only when they quarreled among
themselves that her plans went awry
and the police scattered the band.
Emmanuel Goodhart and Melville E.
Kline were the men who were found
guilty in Judge McEwen's court ol
swindling the London Automobile
Supply Company of $800, paid sup
posedly for a subscription to an ad
vertlslng space In a business direc
tory. While the jury was deliberating
Kline and K. Hughes were placed on
trial before Judge Scanlan. The ac
cusprs in this case are F. P. Barnes, a
furniture dealer at 191 Michigan ave
nue, who estimates his loss at $200;
the Western Methodist Book Concern,
which lost $1,800; the Moneywelght
Scale Company, $800, and E. C. Cook
& Bro., $300.
As field marshal for his resource
ful wife, the real head of the enter
prltte, Bowen had a misunderstanding
with Reld Kent over the distribution
of money. Kent wrote to some of the
victims and as a result Klein was ar
rested. March 22.
U. S. MEETS ITS FOOD DEMAND
Though Growth Exceeds Production
America Holds Own In Sup
Washington, Nov. 1. In spite of
the declaration that the production of
food stuffs Is not keeping pace with
the growth of population, the depart
ment of agriculture announces that
the United States is more than hold
lng Its own in the task of feeding its
people. The bureau of statistics de
clares that during the fiscal year the
United States imports of farm prod
ucts were valued at $540,000,000, which
was $14,000,000 less than In 1906 and
$87,000,000 less than In 1907. In the
nine years since 1900 much less than
one-half of the Imports have been
products of the farms.
