Flssh from Naval Observatory in
Washington Travels Around
World in Few Seconds.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 1-Preclsely at mid
night Friday an employe of the Navy de
partment pressed a button In the naval ob
servatory. Instantly there leaped from It a
spuik that encircled the globe, it lost
only a comparatively few seconds, which
did not discommode those who heard the
news that a new year had been born. New
York got the word, both starting from
Washingtonand a few seconds later after
It had encircled the globe.
For the last ten days the telegraph com
panies and tho wireless stations have been
preparing to assist the United States gov
ernment In flashing the New Year spark
around the globe. Instructions had been
issued to all agents, operators and others
to quit their wires five minutes before
NEW YORK, Jan. 1. Eight bells tapped
the quartermaster of the flagship. Eight
bells sounded every other battleship of the
Atlantic squadron and as the mingled
voices of the bells, softened by the water,
floated to shore, they blended with the
reminiscent chimes of Old Trinity, of Grace
church and of St. Patrick's cathedral. U
was the end of a watch, the end of a day,
the end of a year. Downtown, the vew
year rode In on waves of champagne. One
hundred thousand guests paid from $10 to
$C0 a seat for their reservations at local
restaurants. It la estimated the merry
makers loft '$1,600,000 behind them with
restaurant and hotel keepers.

during the fight, and died late today In
Jail here. J. C. Dllbeck, the third bandit,
was only slightly hurt.
The robbery was well planned, but Car

postofflce Inspectors learned of the affat(.
Marshal Abernathy was notified, and when
the robbers reached the bank he was ready
for them. The posse caught the men In
the act of breaking Into the rear door of
the Harrah State bank. The robbers ran
and the deputies fired, wounding Carpen
ter and Dllbeck at the first volley. Quigg
snapped his revolver, but before he could
return the fire he was killed by a rifle
Carpenter, after the fight, admitted to
Marshal Abernathy they had planned to
rob the banks and the postofflce. He said
"Red" Rogers and Pearl Wilson were the
men that escaped. He and his associates
had, he said, robbed the Golden, Colo.,
postofflce a few weeks ago of $3,000.
Dllbeck later told the marshal that Rog
ers and Wilson were on top of the bank
building at the time of the raid, keeping
watch. The two fled from the town after
the fight, the marshal was told. Warrants
