MEMPHIS. Tenn., Nov.':8.-A dispatch
from Vnlon City, Tenn., to the- News
Heimltar late this afternoon confirms re
port of an attack on a detail of militia
by a band of men, presumably night riders,
at the Gleaaon aaw mill, near Hamburg,
last night. According to the dispatch, one
of the soldiers waa wounded In the hand
and about fifty shots were exchanged be
tween tbe military and the attacking party.
The attack followed the firing on three
men by soldiers who discovered them In the
mill yards. The Intruders, when chal
lenged, refused to halt. Spasmodic shoot
ing continued for several hours and was
followed at midnight by a fusillade. When
the fire was returned by the soldiers the
band, composed of about thirty men, disap
peared. With the arrival of reinforcements
from Camp Rankin a search was made, but
none of the aaaallants could be found.
The placing of guards at the Gleason mill
waa because of threats that It would be
burned If operations continued.

DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 28. Six men were
suffocated to death this afternoon in the
village of Oakwood outside the western out

The alx men who lost their lives this
afternoon were at work excavating 500 feet

from a two-foot 'canvas tube which ran
down the shaft from the surface of the
ground. In some unknown manner this tube
either became tangled or clogged this after
noon about J00 feet down from the surface.
With the air supply shut off the shaft
rapidly filled with gas and the men were
suffocated.
It was some time before rescuers from
the surface could reach them, and then
they were at first, sbla to extricate only
four of the bodies. . i

Remarkable French Woman Believed
to Be Murdereis.
IjIEN LURED BY HER CHARMS
Her Salon Daaallnarly Brilliant -line-

nM by Her Order, la
the Belief.
PARIS, Nov. 28. The gtelnhell case
continues to be the aensatlon of the hour
In all France. No one ventures to say
where the revelations will end. The po
litical aide looms larger and larger every
day and the Interest harks back aiwaya
to the tragic death In Paris In 18V of
Felix Fure. president of France. M.
Faure died In the midst of the Dryfua
excitement.
The most minute details of the scene
In the room where he expired In the, com
pany of Madame Btelnhell are today fla
grantly published by even the republican
newspapers. Up to the present time this
incident In the career of Madame Hteln
hell has only been referred to covertly.
The royalist and anti-Dreyfus organs de
mand an official Investigation Into the
death of M. Faure and Intimate openly
that M. Faure, aa the Insuperable obetacle
to the leaders of the Dreyfus agitation,
was the victim of a plot. They have put
forward the old allegation that M. Faure
Intended to yield to the petitions of the
Dreyfusarda and sign an order' for the
revision of the case, and consequently he
was poisoned.
Verdict aa to Faere'e Death.
The only reason to believe that M.
Faure did not die a natural death Id
found In the fact that hie body discom
posed with unusual rapidity, and to offset
this are the statements of five of the best
known physicians who certified that he
died of cerebral hemorrhage.
The other etory, that Madame Stelnhell
waa present when ha passed away, seems
unfortunately to be true, and great regret
la expressed that clrcumstancea have now
compelled the disclosure to the world of
thla old acandal which the Faure family
and the frlenda of the former preaident
thought waa burled with hla body.
Hhat letters containing evidence of M.
Faure'a relatione with Madame Btelnhell
were eurrendered after his death probably
la true, but the Idea that these communi
cations contained compromising etate se
crete la rejected by all who were behind
that aoene at the time.
With regard to the crimes themselves;
Madame Btelnhell's husband and her
mother, Madame Japy, were found mur
dered In the Stelnhell home In Paris on
May 31 of thla year, and at the aame time
Madame Stelnhell waa discovered bound
and gagged; the net Is drawing closer and
closer around the wife. Stories of her
numerous romantic affalra with peraons
of note In political and artistic circles are
coming to light dally, and they prove what
a remarkable woman she waa.
' "The Charmer of Men.
She is now called "the charmer of men."
Her salon was daztllngly brilliant. Her
last lover, in whose eyes she declared she
wanted to Justify herself, has now been
discovered, and his Identity furnished a
clue to a motive for the crime. He Is a
rich widower and resides in a famous
chauteau near Mealeres, In the department
of the Ardennes. He la not implicated in
the crime. When seen by a Journalist thla
man, who la the father of three children,
protested frantically at the disgrace an
exposure would brlnftv He-said he waa
ready to commit suicide! but nevertheleu
he made a clean breaat of hla relations
with Madame StelnhelL He described how
he had met her at a reception at the Steln
hells. Tho gathering waa a distinguished
one. He soon got Into the habit of meet
ing her at the "Oreen Lodge." a villa at
Bellevue, which Madame Stelnhell rented
under the name of Madame Provost. Mar
lette Wolff, the cook, whose son waa ac
cused by Madame Stelnhell of being guilty
of the murders, lived at the lodge and
waa her mistress' confidante. This waa
early last year. "For a month it waa an
exquisite Idyl," said thla man In describing
the episode. "Madame Stelnhell aald aha
adored me, and at each meeting she made
her avowala and swore I waa the only
lover ahe had ever had."
Woman Dealea Pair Rtory.
"She told me her peat," . the widower
continued to the newspaper man, "and
denied thla goaalp of her relations with
other men. Sh4 insisted particularly that
the Faure story waa a legend and aald
ahe could .prove that ahe was home 111 at
the time of M. Faure'a death. She ad
mitted, however, that ahe hated her hua
tiand and aald ha led an Infamous exist
ence.' She detested her mother, alao, for
having forced her to marry Stelnhell. She
asaured me that ahe would get a divorce
and marry me."
Continuing his explanation, thla man re
lated how the acalea gradually fell from
hla eyea. When the apell waa broken he
returned home. Madame Btelnhell, how
ever, continued to pursue him and tele
phoned him every day.
On the morning of the crime ahe called
him up by long distance telephone, but
the wire waa not working well and he
could barely understand .what ahe aald.
Finally ahe exclaimed: "I am satisfied,
for I have heard your voice; that la
enough for me."
The next day, when he learned of the
murders, he suspected the truth and cama
to Paris. He aaw Madame Stelnhell and
told her never to' see him again until she
had cleared herself.
The prevailing belief In Paris today ia
that Mme. Stelnhell deliberately had her
huaband and mother asaaaslnated.
Possible Political Developmeate.
The possible developments of the political
aide of the case can best be likened to a
pawder magaxlne, and the Preyruaards are
moving heaven .and earth to explode It.
absolutely regardless of the national scan
dal that may result.
M. Berry, conaervative, gave notice In
the Chamber-of Deputlea thla afternoon
that he Intended to present an Interpella
tion en the matter.
The aensational afternoon papers are
filled with the wildest rumors and the
most minute articles concerning the death
of M.. Eaure. It haa been predicted al
ready that Madame Stelnhell will be de
clared crasy and locked up in an asylum
And that In thla manner all further pro-
ceedlnga will be stifled. As a matter ot
fact, the experts agree that ahe la today
a complete nervous wreck, even If ahe
were responsible at the time of the crime.
Several newspapers pretend to know the
name ot the asaessln fit Btelnhell and
Madame Japy, aa well aa that of hla ac
complice-
Late thla afternoon the widower who
admitted he waa the last lover of Madame
Stelnhell cama into Parle and voluntarily
told his story to M. Andre, the examining
magistrate. The name of thla man haa

DIVORCE EXHIBIT DEPLORABLE
Cardinal Gibbons Comments I'nea
Shonlng by UnltedT States One
In Twelve Marriages.
BALTIMORE. Md., Nov. a.-Cardinal
Gibbons commented today on the divorce
statistics recently sent forth. It was a
deplorable exhibit, he aald. that there was
not a united effort to combat the evil If
we are to remain a Christian people.
There must be more stringent legislation
on the subject, he declared.
Referring to the ahowlng of one divorce
In every twelve marriages, the cardinal
aald:
"But when we come to observe more
closely, we find that as tho Catholica do
not tolerate divorcea they muat be ex
cluded from thla atate, which makea the
ahowlng actually one divorce in every ten
marriages. Could anything be more shock
ing? The data ahowa that the divorce rate
la higher In the United Statea than In
any other civilized country in the world."
He added: "The marital tie la becoming
less and less binding, and unless some
thing can be done to check the evil, the
results must be appalling."
