Heated Struggle Near Palestine.
Palestine, Tex., Aug. 1. At least
eighteen negroes were killed iu a
racial clash iu the extreme eastern
section of Anderson county, the cul
mlnation of an enmity between the
races brewing for several weeks. Less
conservative reports place the total
fatalities at between thirty and forty
It was also reported that several white
men were either killed or wounded,
but each rumor as to casualties among
the whites has met an authoritative
denial. Troops reached the scene of
the disturbance, about twenty-five
miles distant. It Is reported that the
belligerents have dispersed and fur
ther bloodshed will in all probability
When the first news of the disturb
ance reached Palestine, officers were
sent to the scene, local ammunition
stores were ordered to suspend sales
and the saloons to close. It was quick
ly apparent, however, that the sltua

local officers and' troops were asked

SPAIN AND POPE BREAK
Papal Nuncio at Madriz Is Recalled
Rome, Aug. 1. Mgr. Vlco, the papal
nuncio at Madrid, was recalled by the
Vatican, completing the break be
tween the Roman Catholic church and
Spain. Marquis de Ojeda, left Rome,
having been recalled by Spain. The
complete severance of diplomatic rela
tlons between the Vatican and the
Spanish government puts an end to all
possibility of amelioration negotiations.
The Vatican, In a semi-official com
munication, says the recall of the am
bassador proves that the program of
Premier Canalejas was not arranged
with the hope of accord, but with a de
sire for fight and the communication
adds, he will have it.
Vatican officials take the darkest
view of the situation, not only In
Spain, but In Portugal as well. They
are of the opinion that the extreme
parties In both countries, aided by
foreign elements, are trying to over
throw the respective monarchies, with
the object of uniting the Iberian pen
insula under republican rule.
In Spain, it Is pointed out, there Is
in addition to the French Free Ma
sonic influence, the English Protestant
Influence exercised over the king

NEGRO RUNS AMUCK
IN SIOUX FALLS
Colored Man Killed After Wound
ing Two Officers.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Aug. 1. The
shooting and wounding of a policeman
by a negro, the wounding of a special
officer and finally the killing of the
negro by another policeman were
events wMch kept the central part cf
the city in a state of excitement un
til an early hour In the morning.
The trouble originated when a young
white man, in a Joking way, walked
closely upon the heels of William
Brown, a negro, In a local saloon.
Brown resented It and called the
young man and his companions a num
ber of ugly names. Then the negro
Joined others upon the street, and fear
ing they were to be attacked, the
white men summoned Police Officer
James Collins, who attempted to ar
rest Brown. The negro broke from
the officer's grasp and fired, the bullet
entering Collins' left side below th
heart. It Is believed' he will recover.
Brown then fled toward the rest
donee district and during his flight
ran past several young women, at all
of whom he fired after passing them.
Some time later Martin Ellingson,
a special officer, met Brown, who start
ed to run. Ellingson fired several
shots, but none took effect. The ne
gro stopped in his flight long enough
to fire one shot, which struck Elling
son six inches above one of his knees.
At an early hour, while the police
and 1,000 voluntary searchers were
looking In every nook and corner of
the city for Brown, Olficer Herman
Weins, who was In hiding near the
house where Brown boarded, heard' a

The Identification of the long sought
fugitives on board the fog shrouded
steamer by the English detective, who
had raced across the Atlantic ahead
of the Montrose, marked the culmlna

flights In recent criminal annals. Ac
companied by two Canadian officers,
he boarded the vessel at 8:30 a. m.,
and fifteen minutes later both man

mentally relieved by the re'axed ten

At'trr a brief delay the Montrose con

towards Quebec, where Jail awaits the

murder of an unknown woman, be
lieved to have been his actress wife,
The girl Is held as an accessory. In

The pilot boat Eureka set out from

that he was nervous was Indicated by
his glance and his remarks to Dr.
Stuart. "There are three pilots com

that not unusual?" '
The surgeon did not reply, but kept
his ewes on the straugers wno walked
rapidly toward them.
Crippen Placed Under Amat.
"Crippen, I want you," said In
spector Dew, quietly, as he ap
proachod. The dentist recoiled invol
untarily as he recognized the man who
addressed him, then the Mood left his
face, his breath came short and fast
aud he gurgled Incoherently as he was
being led away to the captain's cabin.
When he was transferred later to his
own stateroom, he said, gratefully,
"Thank God! the suspense Is over and
I am glad."
Crlppen's arrest accomplished, Dew
hurried to Miss Leneve's stateroom
where he found her still dressed as
"John Robinson, Jr.," on the verge of
nervous breakdown. Her appearanca

told that she was under arrest was
pitiable. All control that she had

DELEGATES HAVE LITTLE TO DO.
Platform to Be Made and Candidate
Selected for Superintendent of Pub
lie Instruction Senator Cummins to
Sound Keynote Advance Guard of
Delegates Arrive at Capital.
Des Moiues, Aug. 1. The advance
guard for the Republican state con
ventlon arrived In the city. Never be
fore in the history cf the state has iu
terest been keener iu a state conveu
tion than iu this one, eveu though
much of the life of a slate convention
has been taken away by operation oi
the primary law.
The convention has but little actual
ly to do. The candidates for governor.
lieutenant governor, treasurer, auditor,
secretary aud other state offices have
been nominated. It remains for the
convention to settle a contest tor
state superintendent between seven
good men. Nobody seems to be able
to figure out any satisfactory solution
of this puzzle. State Supei intenuent
Riggs received about 30 per cent of
the vote, but did not get the 35 pur
cent necessary to nominate. Now the
convention must decide. Very likely
this will take a good many ballots and
this may delay the convention.
Two candidates lor Judges of the
supreme court are to be nominated
but this Is already fixed. They will bo
Judge Horace U. Deemer of Red Oak
and Judge William D. Fvans of Hamp
ton, both to be renominated.
If there Is to be any real contro
versy in the convention it must bo
over some phase of the nlatform. The
situation Is peculiar and delicate. The
two factions have worked at cross
purposes, neither one udmitting that
it Intends to do what the other
charges, each one professing the lit
most loyally to party principles. But
the standpatters are insisting that uu
less the convention makes a platform
which first and above everything else
Indorses President Taft and Governor
Carroll and everything in their admin
istratlons It will show that the conveu
tion Is not Republican. It was the in
tentlon of the progressives to adopt a
platform Indorsing both of these onl
clals In a formal way, then to devote
the major part of the platform to the
principles of the party, but they say
that the attitude of the other faction
is forcing them to a position where
they must leave the matter alone.
There can be no doubt that the plat
form will be written and ndopted by
the progressives, for the fierce fight of
the past summer ended In a victory for
Cummins to Sound Keynote.
Senator Cummins will sound the
keynote lor the convention. He will
deliver a rather tiiuit address, in
which he will discuss the fight in con
gress and the questions which are tip
permost In the minds of the people.
Nobody hus been buggusted for per
There Is also some interest attach
Ing to the manner of electing and or
ganizing the state committee for cam
palgn purposes. There are six of the
(ongreftlon.il districts controlled by
the progiesslves and five by the stand
palters, so that It Is certain that all
committees of the convention will be
controlled by the progressives. But
the primary law requires that the
state convention Itself must elect the
entire state campaign committee. It
may accept caucus nominations, or It
may not do so. Some of the Republic
an leaders are In favor of the conven
tion electing men In every district.
In case of an ugly fight in the conven
tion, or possibility of a bolt on the
part of the minority, this would un
doubtedly be done.
