Judge Kunkct's Vote
At a late hour this afternoon John
K. Geyer, who has been one of the
prime movers of the movement for the
nomination of Judge George Kunkel,
announced that he believed from fig
ures then at hand that Juilt?e Kunkel
had been nominated for the State Su
preme Court. Judge Fraser is un
questionably in the lead all over the
state, but the fact that Associated
Press figures give Kunkel a majority
over Endlich in both Philadelphia and
Allegheny counties leads the Kunkel
managers to believe that this favorable
vote will be maintained throughout the
As a general rule the returns of
the primary are unsatisfactory and
throughout the State there is much
speculation as to the result of tlje non
partisan primary for supreme and su
perior court judges, and fears are en
tertained that it may be forty-eight
hours before reliable figures can be
secured. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh
newspapers as well as the Associated
Press and other press asociation have
been making strenuous efforts to ob
tain figures from county seats, but in
many instances it has been found that
the returns entered are so incomplete
that anything like un accurate esti
mate is impossible.
It. is apparent from what can be
procured from official sources that
Judge Kunkel has carried a number
of counties in this part of the State
and done well in others. Philadelphia
and Allegheny counties give majorities
for Kunkel and Fraser. Unofficial re
turns say that in the Quaker City
Judge Kunkel received 14,554 votes,
Fraser 42,923 and Endlich 14,069. In
562 districts out of 696 in Allegheny
county Fraser got 58,201, Kunkel
3,341 and Endlich 2,133.
Kunkel Committee Confident
Judge Kunkel's campaign manag
ers said this afternoon that reliable
information from' Pittsburgh indicated
that he would carry Allegheny county
by a majority even larger than is in
dicated by the Associated Press re
iv.rts. Messages have been received
indicating that Kunkel has carried
Jefferson county by 600; Perry by
1,200; Cumberland by 2,000; Franklin
by 500, Adams by 1.000 and has also
carried Tioga and Fulton. Lebanon

is running very strong in Berks and

that his big majorities at home will be

Enough returns are in hand to show
that Senator Boles Penrose has been
renominated for United States Senator
by anywhere from 170.000 to ISO,OOO
majority over J.Benjamin Dimmick. In
Philadelphia the senator got over
80,00 votes and Dimmick but 10,900,
and he carried all but a few counties.
Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh triumphed
over Mayor Joseph Caufflel, of Johns
town, his nearest rivay by over 200,000
majority. The Republican majority
are enormous anci their very size
caused despair among the partisans of
Vance C. McCormick who are rejoic
ing over a claimed majority of 25,000
over Michael J. Ryan for the Demo
cratic nomination for governor. The
Democracy of Pennsylvania has
passed through the most bitter pri
mary campaign ever known in its his

111 IN GUATEMALA
Sixty-four Negroes and a Hundred
Red Skins Reported to Have
FIGHT KEPT UP MANY DAYS
Strange Story of Love and War Is
Being Investigated To-day
By Associated Press
New Orleans, La.. May 20. —Tho
United Fruit Company to-day was us
ing its wireless in an effort to confirm
a strange story of a race riot reported
to have occurred on one of its planta
tions in Guatemala in which it is said
sixty-four negroes and probably 100
Indians were killed.
| Smoldering race hatred of the na
tive Indians for negroes inflamed by
one of the negroes winning the In
dian girl, Nazada, from her father at
dice and his refusal to sell her back
to a native, is reported to be the cause
of the trouble. The story came to
New Orleans by mail.
The negro, Clarence Williams, had
been working on the Tcuahuena farm,
one of a number of plantations the
United Fruit Company operates in the
Mantagua river district, according to
the story, he had incurred the hatred
of many of the Indians because of his
prowess with dice. In a game re
cently which Nazada's father partici
pated lie won all the old peon's money
and then, Guatemalan fashion, the old
man wagered his daughter. He lost.
As is customary among these Indians,
the girl did not object to her part of
the transaction and was taken to the
shanty of the American negro.
Half-breed I/oved Her
AH the story goes. Chrlstofo Zurello,
a half-breed boss of a neighboring
farm, had wanted Nazada as a wife
for his son arid was incensed when he
learned that she had become the prop
erty of the negro. According to
Guatemalan Indian custom the father
of the girl was eliminated from the
matter by his unlucky cast of the dice
st) Zurello entered into negotiations
with the negro, lie offered his thirty
pesos for the girl. The negro refused.
Soon after Williams left for his work.
Saturday, May 9. three men appeared
at the shanty. It is said they were.
I Zurello. a peon named Pedro and
half breed. Williams had occasion to
go to the shanty a few hours later.
Tied to a nearby tree was his Indian
[ girl mutilated with knives. Just be-

assailed her. Arming himself Wil
