Dnrl Lasts Thirty Seconds.
After the sitting of the Chamber of tepu
tles and while the members were still In
the lobbies M. Pugllesl-Contl sent his sec
onds to Under Secretary Sarraut. It ws
decided to fight Immediately with swords,
and principals and seconds proceeded by
automobiles to the Vllle d'Auray, where
the combat occurred on the property of
Deputy Kdmonde Gaat. The fight was shor.
but desperate, lasting only thirty seconds.
Sarraut made quick onslaught and blood
soon flowed. At first It wjs thought that
Pugliesl-Contl was wounded, but Sarraut
cried, "I am hit," and theu fainted, ex
pectorating blood. He was conveyed to
IS. Qasfs residence. The doctors who ex
amined him found a deep wound In the
right breast penetrating the lung. The
surgeons consider , the wound serious, but
not necessarily endangering his life.

ot reasons for the dismlxsal of Keagan,

appeal to President Roosevelt In support
of litigation to collect the full amounts due.
The meeting passed resolutions favoring
the commencement of suit In the United

The Interstate Commerce commission has
sent a circular letter to every railroad cor
poration In the United States requesting
Its responsible officials to furnish to the
commission as soon as practicable Infor
mation which will enable It to report to
congress next December.

location of every grain elevator along their
lines, together with the capacity of the ele
vator and whether the elevators are used
solely by their operators; the name and
address of each firm or corporation oper
ating the elevators; whether nny of the
elevatorsare located upoi the lands of the
railroad company and whether such privi
lege of location is open to other persons
desiring to erect elevators along the rail

KELLY WINS KANSAS CASE
Topeka Janice Acquit State Treasurer
of Charge of malfeasance
TOPEKA, Kan., July 13. In the case of
the State of Kansas against State Treas
urer Thomas T. Kelly, Judge Dana today
handed down his decision for Mr. Kelly.
Discrepancies and shortages In the office
were alleged to have been found by a Arm
of accountants employed by the state.
Judge" Dana's decision Is that if there were
any discrepancies or shortages, a charged,
Mr. Kelly is not liable.
There never has been any question of
accounting for the full face value of war
rants concerned In the investigation. Cer
tain warrants were not paid by the state
for want of fund and the state treasurer
sold them. From the time the warrants
were thus stamped they became interest
bearing papers. The attorney general In
drawing up the paper in the present suit
computed the life of the. warrant at two
years and found that If the atate had held
the -.warrants the full time $4,600 interest
could have been collected. lie brought suit
for this amount. The suit was the culmina
tion of an attack on State Treasurer Kelly,
whose actions are upheld by Judge Dana
In his decision today.
