Now Held for Murder
Two strangers quarreled over a trivial
matter In a restaurant and less than an
hour later one of them shot the other.
Inflicting Injuries which caused death.
This Is the explanation given by the po
lice of the killing of Samuel Naplo, 25

Four shots were fired at Naplo, three
of them taking effect. He died In the
Women's Homeopathic Hospital. Ferrlerl
was arrested as he was about to board
a train at the North Philadelphia Sta

plght In company with Allvcrto Fran
ilsco, who lives at the Stella street ad
dress. They ordered coffee. According
t) the police, Fcrrlerl Btarted to take
some cakes lying on the counter of the
restaurant and the owner objected. The
police say tho patrons had been drink

mollified Naplo and the trouble appar

Soon afterward Ferrlerl returned to the
rating house and fired a revolver point
blank at the proprietor, the police al

Tonight in Celebration of
"II Venti Settembre"
Forty-five years airo todny, tho troops
of King Victor Kmmnnuel II, lfd by
Ocncral UnfTnolc Claldlnl, a veteran o
tho Itallnn wars of liberation, appeared
before the Bternal City, tho Itome of the
Popes, opened with their artillery a
breach In the wallB of Porta Pla and
entered tho city, which had been twice
tho cnpltal of the world. General Clal
dlnl, who hnd won a real battle nine
years beforo at Castelfldardo, was not
on September M, 1870, hailed as a strate
gist or n tactician. Ho had won no
battle, because tho Papal Guard had
ottered virtually no resistance, but to tho
Italians he had won a tremendous moral
battle mado possible only by tho defeat
of the KYench JJmperor at Sedan. He
hnd given Italy her capital and had
destroyed the temporal power of tho
WHOLE NATION CELEBRATES,.
A year or so later, when the Italian
Parliament met for the first time In Itome

day. Slnco then September 20, "II XX

been celebrated by the whole nation. Ir

forgetting that they camo from tho land

tho known world and whero a nation has
attained In a trldo more than half a cen

The Italians of Philadelphia observe the
holiday as the Italians of any other set
tlement do. Dut this year thero will not
be tho usual banquet. Instead of enjoy
ing an elaborate dinner, they will listen
to a concert, given by tho orchestral
organization of Slgnor lUtore Martini, In
the Musical Fund Hall, and will turn
over the proceeds of the affair to the
competent authorities to be distributed to
the Itnllan Itcd Cross and to the families
of the Philadelphia Italians who have re
sponded to the calt to nrms which has
come fiom Italy since King Victor Em

wnr on Austria to liberate the Italian
provinces still under Austrian rule.

MOKEMACHER'S HAIRY ONION
INDICATES A HARD WINTER
"But, by Cricky, I'll Not Tell How Bad Till I'm Ready,"
Says Famous Prophet, as He Smooths
New Growth of Fuzz
"The mange, by cricky!" muttered
Simeon M. Mokemacher at dawn today
as he poked around In hlB onion patch
in the loneliest section of tho Neck. "Get
tln' heavier 'n' heavier every day, and
longer too. Tarnation, but It beats me."
Tho lean, angular weather prophet who
prognosticated by his onions, which he
says prove the connection between animal
and vegetable life, straightened up to his
full 6 foot and 7 Inches.
"Sho!" ho said, seeing tho reporter for
tho first time. "You're hero ag'ln, eh7
Fuit thing I know they'll all find me, and

Mr. Mokemacher was questioned deli
cntely about his activities In the onion
patch. It was necessary to be delicate
and not too direct, because ho teemed
to be a trifle annoyed.
BOHTA' OUT O' HUMOR.
"None o" yer business," he snapped.
"Now, Mr. Mokemacher"
"Shet up," he Interrupted. "Shet up, or
I'll stuff an onion down your throat. Now,
look-a-hcre, young feller, I don't want to
be techy, but this thing's getting me sore.
I don't mind for myself, but ft makes the
onions nervous to havo strangers 'round
all thr time. Hereafter you whistle before
j on nine near the patch so' I can warn
'em and get 'em quieted down."
The reporter promised, and Moke
macher, mollified, then became more
tractable. It was explained to him that
various weather prophets havo been mak
ing predictions about the winter and that
some criticism has been directed at him
for his failure to do so. Instead of be
colng enraged this caused Mokemacher
to go into a paroxysm of laughter,

Expect Legal Proceedings to Be
Started by Minority
Much Interest has been aroused among
members of the Brotherhood ot America
by the report made of the withdrawal
of. two homes from the Grand Homo of
Pennsylvania at the 46th annual session
at Reading last week. Tho part of Grand
Scroll Keeper Kathryn Fritz's report
that has caused discussion follows:
"It Is a matter of common report that Mary
S. Dtsston Home, No. 18, has seoeded from
our ordor and that certain of Ita membera aro
operating under a charter granted by an asso.
elation known aa "The Grand Circle of New
Jersey, Urotherhood or America. Continent of
America," compesed of dlsloyaKmembers of
our order. A respectable minority of mem
bers of this homo aro not In sympathy with
Its action and haa signified a desire to remain
loyal to the Grand Home of Pennsylvania, and
will. In the near future, begin legal proceed
ings to protect Ita Interest nnd uphold the
laws of our order. The Grand Home, In my
opinion, ought to lend every assistance In Its
' Martha Jefferson Home No. 20, If report
re true. Is operating as an Independent asso
ciation. For some reason unknown It would
not affiliate with the disloyalists from New
Jersey. With respect to the other two homes,
1 am unable to report anything but the failure
to pay per capita tax and make reports. All
of the homes heretofore named are still In
.oesslon of the paraphernalia, rituals' and
other property. Some action should be taken
to recover the charter, etc."
In closing her report, the grand scroll keeper
asks that greater activity be shown, so that.
Instead of a decrease In membership during
the ensuing jear, there might be a greater In
creaeo than any year In tho history of the or
ganization. WOMAN KILLED BY AUTO
