moun-ta to SHOTS Ml WSBLES F1HEI flT HABCHEBfr Citizens and Police Block Streets After Order Banning Parade Is Defied-And Many Street Fights Follow. THOUSANDS TAKE PART IN RIOTING IN STREET Resisting the efforts of Carnegie citizens and police to halt them and prevent a parade late last night, Ku Klux Klan members broke through a cordon of 1,000 persons and automobiles jammed to stop them and a few minutes later one man had been-shot and killed, another shot and probably fatally injured, two others seriously hurt and a score of others injured by bricks and other missiles. The riot occurred in Main and Third streets, and followed the demands of several citizens to the klan members to lower: the American flags which they carried at the head of the parade. The dead man, attired in robes of the klan, was picked up from the street by other klansmen during the struggle and taken to the office of Dr. F. B. Jones, nearby. He had been shot in the head. The injured were hurried away from the scene by friends and taken out of the borough in auto-- raobiles and ambulances, summoned a few minutes after the first shot had been fired. Half an hour after the k'ansmen had been halted at the bridge, and during which 'time they stood their ground without offering forced resistance, a united effort was made by the men on foot who were leading the column to break through the cordon of citizens and officers. Citizens Scattered. It came suddenly and without warn- Taken unawares for a moment the citizens were scattered in al, di- jections. and the klansrr.en swept for- ward singing "Onward Christian Sol-diers." Other citizens who had crowded the street, but had taken no part in the demonstration, rushed forward then and bricks and stones began to fly through the crowd toward the marchers. Several minutes later shots were f.red and the borough police, deputy 5heriffs and other officers, unable to rontrol the situation, appealed for i in from nearby boroughs. With the first cries of "take down that flag," addressed to a klansman leading the column, resistance of the officers and citizens became stronger and the cries rallied many to offer their aid in checking the onward movement of the klansmen. Several minutes, after the first disorder had subsided, one man was picked up dead from the street and three others, shot and wounded fcy flying missiles, were carried away to ambulances and started out of the borough to hospitals. The first demonstration occurred in Main and Third streets. The column had been stopped by about 1.000 citizens who blocked the street with automobiles and for half an hour the klansmen ignored the cries directed at them to lower the flag. Despite police orders prohibiting ihe parade. Instructions were issued 10:30 o'clock by officers of the klansmen to start the parade as soon as initiation exercises would-be cora-I'leted. The police orders went out to the Ulan members In charge of the initia- tion following the arrest or in the borough early in th. night.

Autos carrying the insignia of the klansmen were ha ted for a moment by the men and directed toward the farm where the Initiation exercises were to be hela.
