Las Vegas, N. M.. July 28.—Two
Mexicans are dead, several others are
wounded and two Americans are in the
custody of United States troops sta-
tioned at this place as tlie result of what
might have been a much bloodier riot
but for tlie presence of mind of City
Marshal Clay in calling out troops so
The occurrence is the outcome of the
lynching which took place here about
four months ago and which the officer*
have since been trying to clear up.
Some days ago the sheriff obtained in-
formation which tended to show one of
the lynching party was Jose Oallegos, a
noted outlaw, and a warrant for his ar-
rest was placed in the hands of William
Green of Old Las Vegas. Green was
accompanied by a Mexican, and on
Wednesday evening the two men came
upon Oallegos in a secluded spot. Gal-
legos took refuge behind a large tree
and drew his weapon in defense, but on
account of the trigger catching he was
too late in getting the "drop" on Green,
who tired upon him, wounding him so
badly that nis death ensued Thursday
This incident aroused the Mexican
people of the old town for revenge, and
last night several of them armed with
warrants entered Green's house on
Bridge street and were met by Eli
Green, a brother of the party they were
While he was parleying with th
officers the brother entered and was im-
mediately tired upon. This was a signal
for a general fusilade, in which Eli and
BillyGreen poured lead from their Win-
chesters into the crowd with deadly ef-
When the crowd retired Juan Sendoval
was dead and several seriously wounded.
The sheriff made his appearance and de-
manded the Green boys to surrender,
which they refused, fearing foul play at
the hands of the Mexicans.
City Marshal Clay called the United
States troops stationed at East Las Ve-
gas by telephone and they responded on
double quick. Lieutenant Crawford
and a detachment of the Seventeenth
infantry with fixed bayonets sur-
rounded the besieged house and a spir-
ited consultation was held with the
Greens who were heavily armed. An
agreement was arrived at to take the
Green brothers to military headquarters
until safety could be assured. They are
now being closely and heavily guarded
and the governor has been telegraphed
While this disturbance was going on
the Mexicans secure 1 the Mexican who
was with Green when the shooting of
Oallegos was done and they dragged
him to jail in the old town.
The commanding officer demanded the
possession of him also, but was refused
by the sheriff and bis posse. Lieuten-
ant Crawford told them he would hold
the sheriff resp msible for the safety and
delivery of the Mexican to him in the
Excitement is at fever heat and it is
not improbable that a lynching or an-
other violent outbreak may occur.

In order to conceal his crime the negro

which runs cly* by the road. Arriving

•Sued the Congregation.
Lancaster, Pa., July 28.—John Gal-
vansky, a Russian Jew, has brought suit
for damages against the congregation
of Chisek Amuna of this city. Galuan-
sky has been quite an active member of
the congregation, but recently he was
deposed from membership and his name
stricken from the rolls because he pur-
chased meat from another source than
that from which animal flesh eaten by
the congregation is obtained, No meat
can be eaten, according to the rules of
the church, unless the animal or fowl is
killed by a man regularly appointed to
do the killing. Galvansky, it is charged,
purcnased his meat from a town butcher,
where he could get it cheaper, and for
this reason he was expelled from the
congregation. To recover the privileges
of membership he has accordingly

Lancaster. Pa.. July 28 \ test was
made on the Lancaster ami Columbia
electric railway of the speed of one of
the new high spe?d cars which have
been placed on that line. The cars are
each provided with two 40-horse power
motors, and the result of the test was
most satisfactory, determining the ques-
tion of high speed on electric roads. The
car left Columbia at 11:40 and although
the tracks were wet with rain and eight
minutes were consumed in passing
through that place, including two stops
at a switch and a railroad crossing, the
run to Lancaster, a distance of 13
miles was made in 28J minutes. The
railroad people believe that the run can
be made in five minutes less time under
more favorable conditions.
