According to eye witnesses, officers took an active part In the councils of the battleship, especially two young cadets. The results of the anarchist Intrigues among the workmen and mutinous sailors became Immediately evident. The troops were unable to use their arms against the crowds of workmen In the vicinity of the harbor for fear ht an enfilading lire from the battleship. The harbor, therefore, was at the mercy of the mob, which pillaged warehouses and vessels, oiened kegs of wine and whisky and commenced a drunken orcy. At night the fire were started. Nearly everything In the harbor was destroyed, the mob refusing to allow the firemen to fight the Hames Among the property de- iroyed Were the warehouses and stores of the Russian Navigation and Commerce company, the agency and stores of the Danube Navigation company, the stores on the Plutanoff piers, the Odessa harbor rail road station, the harbor master's office, part of the warehouses of the Russian Navigation and Trading company and of the Roeysky & Hoshnlne Co.

SAFE AND SANE IN OMAHA Plenty of Patriotism and Pleasure and Very Liule Noise. ONLY A FEW ACCIDENTS REPORTED Loral Surgeons Have Quiet Day Result of Suppression of Danger ou Firework and Blank Cartridges. The celebration of the Fourth of July in Omaha yesterday wa exceptionally quiet and orderly, a condition attributable to the wise precaution taken by the city author ities to eliminate the blank cartridge, the noisy torpedo and the dynamite firecracker as features of tho day's observance. Fire crackers there were galore, and torpedo canes were In evidence everywhere, but th" bombardment was mild and endurable as compared with other years, and the conse quent result has been that serious accidents are reduced to the extreme minimum. The da,- was eool and bracing and the clouds softened the glare of the sun to such a degree that It was a pleasure to be out of doors. The parks were thronged during the afternoon with picnic parties and vis itors to a greater extent than for some years past. The celebration of the day was free and Informal. Business houses generally closed at 11 o'clock, thouptj some remained closed all day. Flags were fly ing everywhere, those on the public build ing being at half-mast In memory of Sec retary of State John Hay. During the early part of last night there was a very general display of fireworks In almost every part of the city, the display being of a private character, made from the various homes of the city. The thunder storm cut short the pyrotechnic display. Fewer accidents resulting from the Fourth of July celebration are reported as occur ring yesterday than for many years In the city of Omaha. noy Mar Lose Rye. The most serious accident thus far ascer tained Is to Wilfred Bradfleld. aged 16 years, living at rot'. South Thirty-fourth street. Injured about the face and eyes from the premature explosion of a large firecracker. The accident occurred near his home about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Dr. D. C. Bryant was the attending physician. The Injured boy was subsequently taken to St. Joseph's hospital for treatment. His face Is badly burned and one eye may be perm anently Injured. The other eye Is hurt, but not seriously. The Injured lad was unconscious for some hours after the accident, hut at last leports late last night he was resting easily, though the full ex tent of the Injury to his eye can not be de termined for a day or two. Dr. Bryant reports another boy of 15 or 16 years who came to his office, 3008 Sherman avenue, for treatment for an Injured eye as a result of a firecracker explosion. The Injury was a severe one, but the name of the boy could not be remembered by Dr. Bryant. Dr. Paul Elllss, at Twenty-fourth and Ames, reports having treated Nels Ander son, a young man living west of Fort Omaha, who lost one finger, and another S.dl: Vtc; ' t li the explosion of u my cannon. He also reports treating one or two minor accidents, merely powder burns, but he did not get the names of the Injured parties. The only Fourth of July fire occurred about 6:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon when No. 3 engine house received a call to 1711 St. Mary's avenue. Some small boys In en upstairs window, throwing firecrack ers below, was the cause of the alarm. There was no damage done, the blaze be ing extinguished before the department arrived. This Is the only alarm turned tn all day, which breaks the record. Earle Priest, a 13-year-old messenger boy employed at the Windsor atahlea, was the only victim of a Fourth of July accident i coming under the care of the police sur j geon. About 9 o'clock last night the boy was sending some roman candles Into the I air and one of them started the wrong way and got up his sleeve. Young Priest was r.ot severely burned, but Police Surgeon Langdon was called and dressed his burn. MAXY THOUSANDS OX THE CABS People Take Advantage of the Mee Weather to no Out. The pleasant weather of the Fourth was an Incentive for about everybody to pat ronize the street cars. The morning traf- ! ftc wa" exceptionally good, the Council i work as did the Hanscom para line, over S.0OO Omaha people visited Lake Manawa during the day, which contributed very ' materially to the revenues of that line.

FAIRBANKS ON INDEPENDENCE lee President of i the t nlted States Address Ohio Crowd at Vrbnna. t'RBANA, O., July 4 A three-day cen tennial celebration of founding of Champaign county as an organized county of Ohio, began here today, an address by Vice President Fairbanks, who was born Just across the line In I'nlon county, being the feature of the day. Mr. Fairbanks said in part: This Is essentially freedom's day. The people do well to lay aside their customary duties and celebrate it. It Is the day above all others when we should reverently and gratefully recall the sacrifices and recount the story of those who fought so wonder ously in freedom s holy name in the years which are past. The continental fathers set a high standard of devotion and duty to country. The story of their heroic en deavor. Is ever Inspiring Their sons, actuated by their example, have extended the zone of human liberty. The primi- rles enunciated so felicitously In the declaration of Independence have Iiecn the people s unfailing guide, and they have given freedom to millions In their own land and millions more In the distant seas. Freedom has ever come as a free will of fering It has been purchased by the blood of those who so loved It that they were willing to die, if need tie, that others might enjoy it. Yes. we have so loved it that wo have not onl" drawn tr sword to win it ourselves, but have assembled our fleets and marshalled our armies to give It to aliens who were oppressed. Our people are rilled with the true na tional spirit. There Is nowhere among us any divided allegiano . The brave men wiio put their hands to the Declaration of Independence Hhd those who made good their challenge to King George the 1 lilrd, set an example of high devotion to lib erty and country which should be an in spiration to us and our children and their children's children forever and ever. We have much reason to he grateful for while there are wars and rumors of wars about the earth, while other peoples are In the throes of unresi and revolution, our people are walking the ways of peace, prepared for war, but praying that it may never again disturb our national tran quillity. A wise and Just course in our relations with other powers v ill largely Insure us against any International breach. We -nay Justly take pride In the fact that President Roosevelt has pointed the way to the re-establishment ot peace In the orient. We find that the debate upon the battlefield and uron the seas must. In the final analysis, be concluded In the deliberative chamber. Would it not seem that It were possible for men to come to reason upon great international Issues be fore the Infraction of International peace? u.v thu nnwent of the world take a les son of what has occurred and is occurring and establish some method by which they mav settle their differences In a manner consistent with their honor, without first Invoking the sword, without shedding each others blood and bankrupting each others treasury? , . . . . As we gather about the altars of patriot Ism todav we take new courage and are filled with fresh purpose to preserve un polluted our sacred temple of liberty. NEW YORK, July 4.

During a quarrel In the saloon of William Huntslnger, on Military avenue Just west of K rug's park, Charles Jones of 3407 Parker street was shot and Instantly- killed by Antonio Pistlllo, an Italian employed on the I'nlon Pacific bridge gang, which Is working on the road near South Omaha. Pistlllo Is still at large and Is thought to be In hiding In the woods north of Benson In the vicinity of Irvlngton. Four men, who were with Pistlllo at the time of the shooting are now In Jail held as state witnesses. They are H. Jacobsen, Martin McGovern, both of whom live In Benson, and E. KUllan and Frank Kll llan, who reside on Parker street between Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixth streets. The story of the killing as told by wit nesses is that about 4.30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the five men, the four under ar rest nnd Pistlllo. came to the saloon from Benson and at that time were under the Influence of liquor. An Italian society was holding a picnic In Military park In the rear of the snloon, and when the five young men went to the bar-room they demanded admission to the park, where, as they told the bar-keeper, they could "guy the Ital ians." The bar-keeper refused to let them go Into the rark, but they finally suc ceeded In getting admission and at once became Quarrelsome. Intruder Mere Troublesome. They had trouble with almost everyone In the garden, Including Charles Jones, the young man who was shot. It is said that Jones left the park soon after the trouble started and the five men who had been making the disturbance started out after him. They again started the disturbance. Pistlllo, It Is nald, told Jones, "I can lick you." One word brought on another and the Italian drew a revolver and shot, strik ing his victim in the neck on the right side, severing the Jugular vein. Jones died Instantly. A second shot was fired by Pistlllo, but It did not take effect. After the shooting Iistlllo returned to fhe park, deliberately climbed over the fence and started northward, without a person in the crowd to Interfere, although there were at least fifty people who saw him going and knew the circumstances. A description of the murderer has been given to the police and a sharp lookout is being kept. It is said that Pistlllo has been stopping at a boarding house on South Twentieth street, although the directory does not give his name. Charles Jones, the young man who was shot, was a lineman for the Omaha Elec tric Light and Power company and had been In the employ of this company for a number of years.. HI father, George B. Jones, employed at the t'nlon Pacific shops In this cly, but for the past two- or 'threo weeks has been on a vacation In Ohio. It is not now known Just what Ills exact address is, but he Is either In Toledo of Detroit. A message was sent to both ad dresses last night by Coroner Bralley, but at a late holir he had not been heard from. Mother Waiting- for Him. A pathetic incident of the killing of young Jones was that when Coroner Bralley went to the house to notify the mother of tho tragic death of her son. Mrs Jones was sitting on the porch wait ing for him to come home, and was fear ful lest he might not return before the rain came. She was almost frantic with grief, but bore up well under the stratn. The father and mother and a sister, a girl of 10 years, are the only survivors. The young man la but 12 years of age and was unmarried. Coroner - Bralley took charge of the re mains and removed the body to the morgue, where an lnqoest will probably be held tomcrrow.

MILITARY SUPPORT FOR THE RIKSDAG Aotion Intended to Gits Force to Stand of Special Committeet INTERVIEW WITH KING OSCAR Sftjs He Will Not Permit Son or Grandson to Accept Throne of Norway. DEFENDS VETO OF CONSULAR BILL 111 Majesty States that He Acted Clearly Within III Conatltav tlonal Hlaht and Duties . a Sovereign. PTOCKHOUM. July 4 The Associated Press Is In a position to tate that an or der for the mobilization of the Swedish army has been Issued and that a proclama tion to this effect will probably be Issued within a week. The mobilization Is In tended as a means of giving added force to any proposal for settlement which the spe cial committee appointed by the Riksdag may make to the Norwegian Storthing. king Oscar Interviewed. King Oscar granted a private audience to the correspondent of the Associated Pres at the royal palace today. In a lengthy conversation his majesty expressed his views on the present situation and said em phatically that he would never allow any of his sons or his grandsons to accept the Norwegian throne. In speaking of the at titude of Norway, the king displayed deep emotion and expressed his heartfelt sorrow at Norway's treatment of him after thirty two years of unceasing labor for Its happi ness and prosperity. His majesty said he wished to convey through the Associated Press his gratitude for hundreds of expressions of sympathy received from the t'nlted States. In the course of the conversation King Oscar reiterated his official utterances re garding his position on the consular bill passed by the Storthing and the ev?nts which followed his vetoe of It, and said. When fhe king of Norway considers th.vt the welfare of the country demands thai he shall veto a bill passed by the Stor thing his right to do so Is unconditionally shown in Norway's constitution, and he would be false to his oath If he did not ex ercise this right in accordance with his conscience. The constitution gives tho Storthing the power to pass a bill over my veto, provid ing, however,, that thl can only be done by the bill being passed bv three con secutively elected Storthing. The consular bill was only passed by one Storthing. Constitution of Norway. As king of Norway, It was of the utmost necessity that 1 should keep before my eye the first nrticle of the Norwegian constitu tion, which reads, "The klndom of Norway Is a free. Independent, Indivisible and in alienable country united to Sweden under one king." Therefore, it wa imieratlve before approving a bill eeparatlng the con sular systems of Sweden and Norway that I should consider the welfare and Interests of both countries, and I had a perfect right, as king of Norway, to refuse my sanction. The refusal of the Norwegian cabinet to countorMgn my veto was Inexcusable, as the constitution prescribes that the king may decide action according to his Judgment, nnd that all his orders must be counter signed by tho cabinet. Thus the Norwegian constitution, my own conscience and my consideration of tho welfare of both kingdoms were the guide to my action In vetoing the consular bill. This Is the first Interview granted by King Oscar to any correspondent. His majesty had been advised not to talk for publication, and every effort was made by his entourage to prevent access to him. The Associated Press correspondent, how ever, received a communication last evening summoning lilm to a private audience today. WOMEN ELECT OFFICERS Mis Susan R.
