Edward Casey, a Retired
Farmer,- Suffocated While
Asleep In Rooming House
Others Recover.
Edward Casey, 70 years old, re
tired farmer, was asphyxiated and
. three others made unconscious by
escaping gas late Monday afternoon
in a roomiiiff house at 807 South
Eighteenth street, conducted by
frs. May Nelson.
The unconscious forms of Mrs.
Nelson and Mr. ?nd Mrs. S. H.
Grim were found in their rooms
on the second floor by H. E. Doles
of the same address when he re
turned home from work. Police
Surgeon .Edstrom revived the trio.
The body of Edward Casey was
found in bed in his room on the
third floor of the building. All the
windows in the room were closed.
When the police responded to a
call from the place they detected
gas escaping from a leaky pipe in
the basement. The entire interior
of the three-story building was filled
with the escaping gas. The" base
ment was also found to be flooded
with four feet of water. An em
ploye of the gas company had to be
called to shut off the gas.
The body of Casey was taken to
the Gentleman undertaking parlors,

During the night following Satur
day, the 25th of- this month legally
and strictly at 2 a. m. on Sunday,
the 26th the clocks will be set
back one hour. This we hope will
be the last time that we will have
to tamper with our timepieces. For
although setting the clock ahead
an hour during the summer months
had many undeniable advantages,
it had, however, as is the case with
all human affairs, some disadvan
tages also. On account of these
latter many places did not advance
their timepieces as the law ordained.
The consequence was much con
fusion and misunderstanding. By
having all our clocks agreeing,
we hope to come back to that union
that existed before this law was
made. -
To set the clock back one hour
the simplest way is to turn the
minute hand on complete turn
backward. This can readily be
done with all watches and also with
all clocks that have no striking
tnenhanism. When, however, the
clock has a striking mechanism, or
an alarm or other such contrivance,
we should be very careful never to
turn the minute hand backward
past the time that this mechanism
is to operate. If we disregard this
advice we shall certainly ruin the
clock. The best thing to do in this
case is to stop the clock a whole
hour by comparing it with another
that is kept running in the interim.
There are, unfortunately, no
olanets visible in the evening dur
ing the month. They are now all
morning stars. Venus attains its
ctrcatest brilliancy on the 19th and
is easiest to identify in the morning
' sky. On the 15th Jupiter rises at
1:55. Mars at 3:32, Saturn at 3:53
and Venus at 4:32 a. m. The moon
is in conjunction with Jupiter on
the 17th, and, with Venus. Mars
and Saturn on the 19th. On the
,J 24th there is a very close conjunc
""""fion between Saturn and Mars, the
distance between them being only
about one-sixth the diameter of the
, moon.
The days diminish in length one
hour 17 minutes during the month,
.being 11 hours 46 minutes long on
the 1st, 11 hours 8 minutes on the
15th and 10 hours 29 minutes on the
3l3t. On the 24th the sun enters

Pershing was placed in command
of Camp Vicars shortly before the
Fourth of July. On that day, in the
hope of impressing the natives more
profoundly with the power of the
United States and with the desire
of further amelioration, Pershing in
vited the tribal leaders to participate
in a celebration at the camp. About
700 dattos and sultans accepted the
invitation. Despite the apparent
friendship of these leaders, there
was an undercurrent of hostility,
and Pershing knew that while many
of the Moros might be won by
diplomacy while many had been
won the subjugation of the tribes
could only be accomplished by force
of arms.
Ventures First Campaign.
August 31, the most severe earth
quake within the memory of the old
est natives of Mindanao shook the
lake region. Rancherias were shal
lowed by the earth and many lives
were lost. This seemed to increase
the unrest of the Moros. Ignorant
savaees. there were those among
I them who believed that the troops
at Camp Vicars were responsible tor
the phenomena and had harnessed
the powers of the unseen to wreak
destruction. More Moros took the
offensive against the camp. Failure
to punish the offenders was miscon
strued as cowardice. It was decided
at last to attack the Moros. On
September 18 Pershing , set out on
the first of his four memorable ex
peditions. What was accomplised by the ex
pedition is best told in Pershing's
own words, contained in a report
submitted by him. It follows:
"The column left Camp Vicars at
1:30 a. m. the 18th instant and ar
hived at Pantauan, about 10 miles to
the southeast, at 6 a. m.
Two Sultans Resist
"At Pantauan, a base camp was
established and the operations of the
expeditior were conducted from
there. 1 was informed here by Amat
Pasandalan that Sultan Uli of Gauan,
and the st.'ltan of Bayaboo would not
treat with me, but resist our march
toward their rancherias.
"I proceeded at once in the direc
tion of Gauan, on Lake Butig. On
leaving Pantauan several- armed
Moros were seen at a distance, but
no shots were fired on either side.
The trail followed a narrow, wooded
ridge, over which we cautiously pro
ceeded, reaching Gauan, some three
miles away, at about 8:30 a. m. The
end of this ridge projected into a
swamp, with Lake But'g on the
south and southwest. The stronger
of the two forts in sight was situated
directly in our front, at the narrow
est part of the ridge, completely
closing the trail, and some 200
yards from the end of the ridge. This
tort was first sighted as we de
bouched from the woods some 300
vards from it.
How Battle Was Waged.
"The two guns of McNair's bat
tery were unlimbered and posted on
the ritiht of Company t. Companies
G and M remained in column of files
on the trail, hidden from view to the
front, but in a position to face the
ridge on our left.
From the hills on the opposite
side of the lake the Moros kept up
a desultory fire with Krags and
Remingtons. At a distance of some
500 yards to the west of the small
fort and across the lake several
armed Moros were observed, no
doubt thinking they were beyond
the range of our rifles; but a few
well directed volleys by Lieutenant
Hawkins' scouts either destroyed or
dispersed them.
At 7 o clock the next mornine,
with all of the command (except
Company b, which, with the mortar

detachment of the battery, was left
as a camp guard), I started out to
Bayaboa, with Captain Kirkpatrick's
Troop L in advance. At about two
miles from camp, on an open ridge
covered with tall grass, the advance
guard was attacked by a party of
40 Moros with firearms. Captain
Kirkpatrick dismounted his troop
and vigorously repelled the attack
without any casualties, and, moving
forward at a double time, he con
tinued firing at the retreating Moros,
several of whom ran into a wooded
ravine on our right, the rest retir
ing into a cotta about a mile away.
Prevents, All Escape.
"Approaching this cotta, from
which a few shots were fired, the
battery was placed in position at a
range of about 400 yards, and Lieu
tenant Gracie, with Company M,
was sent to the left to cut off any
avenue of escape from that direc-4
tion. Captain Kirkpatrick, with
Troop L, dismounted, and Lieuten
ant Bickham, with Company F,
were sent to the right, both wings
being directed to cover as far as
possible any escape to the rear. In
taking position, the right wing en
countered several Moros attempting
to escape, all of whom were either
killed or wounded.
"The infantry being in position,
fire was opened on the cotta with
the battery. Lieutenant Gracie soon
after entered the cotta and found it
abandoned. This cotta was a very
strong one, about ISO feet square,
with walls of earth 10 feet thick,
surrounded by a deep trench, with
bamboos stakes protecting all ap
proaches. It contained a large quan
tity of rice, in a large, substantial
building. This building and con
tents of cotta were destroyed, as was
another small cotta some 400 yards
to the west.
Long Range Scares Moros.
"I had had difficulty in obtaining
any accurate information about
trails and roads as well as about
the location of cottas, but it was
evident that the Moros from Ma
cui had a fort somewhere nearby
on the south side of the arm of the
lake, as many Moros were seen
hurriedly crossing to this side in
vintas. I directed Captain Mc
Nair to try his guns on them, and,
if possible, stop reinforcements
coming to this side. After three
or four trial shots, a vinta was
struck and sunk, and seven Moros
are said to have been killed or
drowned. The distance at which
the shot was tired was about 1,800
yards, and it made such an im
pression on the Moros that no
further attempts were made by
them to cross, and during the en.
tire time thereafter vintas kept
their distance.
Up To Necks in Water.
"Upon our "arrival at Sauir, I
sent a messenger to Sultans . Gan
dauli and Tauagan, requesting them
to visit camp and confer with me
or to meet me at some point to be
designated by them. The Moro
messenger returned with a verbal
message that they declined my in
vitation, but would meet me when
we arrived at Macui, and directed
the messenger not to return with any
more messages.
"With the rafts an effort was
made to cross the arm of the
lake, and Lieutenant Pepper, who
made the first attempt, succeeded
with about 20 men in reaching a
landing on the other side, some 800
yards distant from our side and
some 400 yards from the farthest
point he was able to reach with the
"In the afternoon an attempt was
made by a fresh detachment under
these two officers. During most
of the afternoon the party at work
with the raft was under fire from
Moros on the other side, hidden in
the grass, but scouts from our side
prevented any close range firing on
the part of the Moros. Both the
officers and men on this duty were
most of the time in water and
mud. oftentimes to their necks.
"Otf Septeinbcr 22 it was deter
mined to return to Camp Vicars.
Lieutenant Comstock, 1 with 50 men
of Company M was sent as an es
cort to Lieutenant Fries, Engineer
corps, to ascertain if there was a
trail farther up the Malaig river than
any party had yet been. As the
command moved out to camp at
Sauir the Macui Moros began to
take courage, and congregated near
the cottas of Tauagan and Gandauli,
firing rifles and lantacas. As we
came to the first bench of platiar
above Sauir these Macui forts were
plainly visible at a distance of about
3,000 yards. As much for practice
as for results against the person
nel of our opponents Captain Mc
Nair was directed to try his guns
and the mortar on them. The range
proved too great for accurate firing,
but it had the effect of dispersing
all Moro gatherings in the vicinity,
and sent them hurrying toward the
north end of the peninsula. Sev
eral shots, however, apparently land
ed within one of the cottas. At 10
a. m. the return march was resumed
and Camp Vicars was reached at 7
p. m.
"During this expedition, as learned
since from friendly Moro sources.
30 Moros were killed and as many
more were wounded. Light cottas
were captured and with their con
tents destroyed. No other property
was destroyed."
