Seattle, July 3. A special from Both- ell says: Tracy, the escaped Oregon convict, this afternoon ambushed one of the posses, killed Deputy Sheriff Raymond of Snohomish county, perhaps mortally wounded Deputy Sheriff Jack Willia-nis of Seattle, and then escaped after a duel with two newspaper men. For the first time since he has escaped from the Salem penitentiary he came face to face with his pursuers, but with deadly result to the followers. After the battle, the convict held up a farmer, named Lewis Johnson. He informed him he was a deputy sheriff on the trail of Tracy and impressed the farmer into his services. They took the road for Ravenna, it being the convict's intention io proceed straight down to Seattle. The battle this afternoon was short and decisive, Tracy escaping unhurt. . ; His pursuers were Deputy Sheriff Raymond, Deputy Sheriff Jack Williams, Deputy Sheriff Nelson, Carl Anderson, and Louie Sefrit. They walked down the railway track toward Woodville, where they met a man whom they mistook for the criminal and held him up. They then went on down the track toward Seattle from this place, until they were a quarter of a mile west of Wayne. They met Deputy Sheriff Bremer and reported back to BothelL They heard Tracy had been seen near Wayne. - They doubled back on their tracks from Bothell, and entered a canyon on the west side of Wayne. Here the party divided to make a search, as it was an ideal hiding place. Sefrit noticed a path running down to a cabin near the railway track. It bore the fresh imprint of a man's foot." "This is our place, 'said Raymond, and stepped forward in the path to the cabin. Nelson and Bremer were on the west side, Anderson and Sefrit were on the east side. They walked .down the canyon with their rifles in their hands ready for action. The rain was falling almost in torrents. Suddenly from a clump about 30 feet away Tracy's face and neck shot into view and at the same moment he flung his 30.30 Winchester rifle into service across the stump. The reports were almost simultaneous with his appearance. He had fired point blank at Anderson, the bullet grazing his face. Anderson tumbled headlong into a ditch, partly stunned. The cold water into which he fell revived him and he was on his feet in an instant. As he arose Tracy again fired twice, and Raymond, who had just crouched to shoot, reeled backward against Anderson and dropped to the ground, stone dead. As Raymond reeled back, Sefrit fired at Tracy and the convict turned his attention to him. Sefrit fell to the ground and fired again at the convict. Tracy twice shot savagely . in quick succession at his assailant. Anderson in the meantime had plunged through the brush to flank the convict. He met Nelson and Brewer. Before they could move a step Tracy fired three shots and a second later Williams crawled to the brush on his hands and knees into the open around the cabin with blood apparently streaming from every point. He was shot three times under the heart and even as he appeared to view he lurched to one side and fell unconscious. ' Kills Policeman Seattle, July 4.2 a. m. Tracy has killed Police Officer E. F.

A telephone message reports that Tracy,' the convict, who escaped from the Oregon prison, was surrounded at Bothell,1 on the Northern Pacific railroad, 22 miles north of Seattle, and a desperate fight followed. Three men were shot. Two men were seen lying in a ditch, probably dead. The probably fatally wounded are L. B. Le-seritt, a reporter for the Seattle Times, and Deputy Sheriff Jack Williams of Seattle, who was wounded three times and fired three shots at Tracy, who was in the open. During the battle, Carl Anderson was slightly grazed on the arm and Leo Sefrit, another reporter, was wounded in the face. ' ' 4 So intense is the excitement over the killing of Raymond and the wounding of Williams that an effort is being made to have Governor McBride call out the I state militia. ; Tracy was last Seen below Bothell and was headed for Seattle in a wagon. The first posse which left for Bothell was composed-of Deputy Sheriff Williams, Nelson, McGee, Reineir and Snyder. Tracy was seen walking the track of the - Seattle & International ; railway ' about 7:30 o'clock this morning by Jack Freeman, a night watchman at the state university. He at once notified the sheriff's office and the pursuit began. The posse of deputy sheriffs were soon joined by a number of citizens.

Tracy held up a farmer with his horse, after the battle, and took the horse and made good his escape, going north towards the Snohomish county line. A second posse of officers has been organized at Bothell and is in pursuit, but the chances are against them for tonight, at least, and the country is a very difficult one to operate in such a case as this. ( RECIPROCITY WILL COME Chairman Payne Says That Reciprocity With Cuba Is an Assured Thing. Washington, July 3. Chairman Payne of the house committee on way3 and means today conferred with . President Roosevelt in regard to Cuban reciprocity. Upon leaving the executive quarters Payne, in response to questions on the subject, said he was satisfied that reciprocity with Cuba would be effected at the next session of congress with an almost unanimous vote , in both houses. The method by which this will be attained, he said, will be by treaty. Under ordinary conditions, he said, the treaty is ratified by the senate only, but in matters of this kind, involving questions of revenue, under the Ding- I ley law, the' house under the constitu tion has equal jurisdiction with tne senate. The conference of Payne with the president and his subsequent utterance effectually puts an end to the extra session talk. THE DB1EBUND 0. K. French Kinlater of Foreign.

Chicago, July 3. Maddened and half intoxicated from alcohol used in "distil- lery slop" fed to them, a big herd of cattle stampeded in the stock yards today. . . More than a score of the animals met death in the rush. Scenes were enacted that for terror and blood made old stockmen and cowboys turn their backs. One man nearly lost his life. The herd stampeded numbered more than 600 of the kind that are known as "distillers' cattle" and are fattened on the refuse from liquor mills. , A closed gate caused the trouble and before it was over 21 animals lay in a heap, some impaled on horns, others with necks broken and others frantically climbing over the squirming mass, while some of the survivors leaped fences and escaped to different parts of the yards. A dead wall of cattle finally brought the rush of the animals to a halt. The herd only stopped when the pressure behind gave way because of the lessening numbers. ing night some of the Whitehorse citizens ordered them to leave that town at once. The Chinese demurred, and they were forcibly placed on a freight train bound for Bennett, to which place their fares were paid. At Bennett, the United States customs officials conveyed the Chinese to Skagway, where they
