Aside from the delay In procuring

other embarrassments which will ren

The navy officials say that It Is with
dlllleu'lty that enlistments of seamen,
machinists and others are made during
the summer season. At this period men
who combine a knowledge of such mat
ters can always find more re
munerative employment on prl
vlate yachts and along shore
where the duty is not so exact
ing as It is In the navy. The business
conditions, which are more satisfactory
now than they have been for several
years, make it also possible to pro
cure work that la more satisfactory to
them than serving the government, and
for these reasons enlistment proceed
slowly. Later In the autumn, however
when the scores of .private yachts shall
have been laid up the men engaged
upon them will seek other employment,
and then the vacancies In the ranks of
the enlisted men will be rapidly tilled.
Never before In Its long and honora
ble history h9 the navy department
been so Jealous of the Wgh character,

by those having thee matter In charge
that 90 per cent, of the applications

department require that no seamen,

The United States government pays
Its enlisted men better than any other
nation on earth. Seamen of the first
rank receive $24 per month, while lands
men without previous experience draw
$3 less. The pay of a machinist Is $70
a month, and that of a fireman $35. A
blacksmith receives $50; & plumber. $45,
and a painter, t'M. Men who enlist as
seamen when qualified and are ad
vanced to the rating of pe.tty officers,
have their wages Increased to an
amount varying from $25 to $05 a
month. The rate of pay generally Is far
in advance of that which Is given to
private and non-commissioned officers
in the army, but the service is more
exacting ami from many points of view
It is not so desirable. It Is sa d. for
example, that the department finds
great difficulty In inducing the younger
men to re-enlist after one or two ser
vices. After an experience of this
character the men as a rule dest-e to
marry and seek employment on shore
rather Ihin to be peperated from their
families for a period of three years with
only a ninety days' vacation at the ex
piration of that time.

LYNCHERS AFTER THEM.
A (iang of Indians ( liurgcd with Atrocious
Crimes Arc in Charge of Sheriffs Posse.
In Danger of Mob Violence.
Wagoner, I. T., Aug. 11. With the
exception of one, the gang of Indians
who have committed a series of diaboli
cal crimes since July 3D In the Indian
Territory, were captured near Okmul
gee last Thursday after a desperate
tight, and started for the KVirt Smith,
Aik., Jail, to avoid being lynched. News
has been received here that 'a mob of
Muskogee citizens has gone across
country to Fort Gibson to intercept
the 'Missouri Pacillo train carrying the
fiends and their captors for the pur
.pose of dealing out summary Justice.
The gang, which began its heineous
operations by murdering United Stales
Marshal John llarrett at Okmulgee,
and escaping to the hills of Creek na
tion, was led by Kut'us Buck, a I'che
Indian. His followers were Samuel
Sampson, Meorna July. Uud Lucky,
alias Lucy Davis, Albert Stake, and
Ievl Davis. The day after murdering
Garrett 'the gang met a while man
and his daughter In a wagon. Cover
ing the man with their guns, the In
dians took the girl from the wagon
and each assaulted her within sight of
Their next victims were: Ben Cal
lahan and a negro biy, whom the gang
met on the road. They murdered the
boy and beat Callahan so that they be
lieved him dead, when they left the
scene, after robbing the man of money,
boots and saddle.
At the. country stores of West and
Norrburg. at urket, the murderers and
robbers held up the owners and took
away everything they could carry.
Next In their path ot crime they met
two white women and a girl 14 years
old. All were repeatedly assaulted.
The girl's feet and hands were tied and
the unfortunate creature was assaulted
until life tvus extinct.
Uv this time the country In the vicin
ity of tihe crimes had become aroused.
Federal and Indian posses, inciuuing
the Creek light horse guards, started
at first to capture or kill the murderers.
Thursday af ternoon the pursuers came
up with the gang twelve miles rrom ok
mulgee. A fight resulted In which Cap
tain Harry fell from his horse, a bul
let grazing his head, and three horses
Five of tihe gang were captured alive
and the sixth. Lucky Davis, escaped.
They were taken to Okmulgee, where
a mob of citizens, bent on lynching
them, surrounded the officers, but the
officers escaped with their prisoners to
'Muskogee. Another mob with ropts and
rifles awaliUtd trtHr arrival, but again
the posse cheted the mob of Its prey by
getting sufficient warning and placing
the gang In Jail. This was last night
and the town was kept In an uproar
all night by the attempts to lynch the
Indians, and efforts of the business men
to prevent mob violence. The mob
finally quieted long enough to allow of
a third escape of the posse and prison
ers on a train for Fort Smith.

Philadelphia, Aug. 11. The result of
yesterday's ltepublican primary elec
tions In the counties of Montgomery,
York, Adams, Perry and Juniata, and
the convention in .Schuylkill county,
was gem-rally favorable to Senator
Quay, and disastrous to the adminis
tration. The SchuyilklH county conven
tion elected Its seven delegates to the
Btate convention with Instructions for
Quay. Full returns from .Montgomery
county tonight assure the seven dele
gates from the county to Uuay. No re
port could he secured tonight from
Adams and Juniata counties of the ac
tual results there, but the Indications
from the returns received are that Quay
will get the delegates from the two
counties. Tho administration secured
Perry county's one delegate, and the re
sult In York county Is still doubtful.
York has five delegates and the admin
istration claims they have them all.
INone of the administration leaders
were In tho city today,, and consequent
ly no expression of opinion from their
side could be obtained ot the result of
yesterday's elections. Senator Quay
was much pleased over the result, and
said that it only confirmed his state
ments that he would win the tight.

suffered at Biigantlne some weeks ago

BATTLE WITH Tit AM PS.
Two Citizen of Marlon, Indiana, Are
Fatally Injured in a l ight with a ttang
Marlon, Ind., Aug. 11. There was a
desperate battle httween a tranir of
tramps and a posse of citizens In the
suburbs of the city of Marlon, Grant
county, Friday night. In which two of
tne citizens received wounds that will
prov fatal. Their names are Otto Mc-
l-reely, citizen, shot in abdomen, will
die; Chnrles Webster, citizen, shot in
abdomen, will die.
For ten days or more the .people In
the Immediate vicinity of i.Marion have
suffered from tho denredatlon of
tramps, and a number have been ar
rested and placed In Jail, but arrests
were discouraged because of the ex
pense to the authorities and practical
immunity was thus truaranteed. Fri
day a camp was formed by the tramps.
nnu tiuring tne day as many as fifty
congregated about the place and bade
defiance to the people. During the day
numerous robberies were committed,
and at night the people, who had suf
fered from the depredations, feeling that
their property was not saSe while the
tramps were in the vicinity, determined
to drive them away.
Some twenty-five citizens appeared at
the camp and ordered the tramps to
leave. The order was met with defiant
refusal and the citizens fired In the air.
The tramps nt once deserted the camp
ami rrom places of concealment fired
into the crowd. It was not sunnosed
that fbey were armed, but the citizens
returned to the attack and a running
ngnt. wntcn was kept up for nn hour,
followed. The tramps dodged between
railroad cars and kept up the fight by
firing whenever a citizen exposed him
self, and the fire was returned by the
citizens. McFreely and Webster will
both die. None of the tramps so far ns
known was hurt. Several arrests were
made, but the men captured claim that
they did no shooting.
