Officers talked with the men', some of whom had carried guns to the park, and they finally dispersed. Early in the day police ordered a somewhat similar gathering in the city to disband. Officers expressed-confidence today that the "trouble" had "passed over" and no alarm was felt over the condition yesterday. No statement was forthcoming from S. L. Qladish, district prosecutor, today but it Is generally understood that the prosecutor was awaiting the final report ol the autopsy Sunday before starting any proceeding. Gladish inimated Monday that whether or not he would take any action in the matter would depend on the autopsy report, which as received from unofficial but reliable sources indicated no injuries to the convict but confined the cause of his death to heart trouble and heat exhaustion. , resses a a-. at 2:30 p. m., and at Blythe- vUte at 8 p. m., Wednesday, July 23, and at Leachvllle at 10 a. m.
