Four THE TAMPA MORNING TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1915 IRATE LITIGANTS WONT INTERFERE BRITISH TRANSPORT BEACHED IN EFFORT TO LAND MEN ON GALLIPOLI PENINSULA, AND HEROES OF LANDING PARTY Schools and Colleges E SHOOT DOWN JUDG wTH MUNITIONS RHODE ISLAND JUSTICE IS SHOT DOWN ON PUBLIC STREET TWO ARE ARRESTED Evidence Incomplete and Both Are Released! Housekeeper Finds Body FROVIDEXCE, U. 1., Sept. 6. Justice Willis S. Knowles, of the Eighth Judicial District, was. assassinated Just after he had left his bungalow in orth Situate to take a trolley car for Providence today. He received three bullet wwmds, two in the back and one in the law. The attack occurred about 100 yards from I nouse and apparently the shots came from bushes that lined the vil lage road leadlnsr to the car line. After having1 been wounded at least once, the justice turned back and had nearly regained the gate opening into his place when he fell dead. There were no witnesses, and the assassins escaped. Later the police detained two men on suspicion. They are Italian la borers and according to the police, one or them carried a loaded revolver. . Houskeeper Finds Body . The body was found by Knowles' mmseKeeper, Mrs Warden, who ran from the house when she heard the shots. As she reached the lawn she says she heard a man's voice with a foreign accent cry: "Now, Judge, I've got you. She saw no one but thought the voice came from the shrubbery, Justice Knowles was forty years of age and unmarried. The police are proceeding on the theory that he was killed in revenge by some litigant against whom he had given a decision. His circuit was made up of the city of Cranston and th towns of Johnston, Poster and Solu- tate, in each of which he held court once a week. Justice Knowles was elected to the bench in 1908. Friends of Judge Knowles told the police that he recently had said he was making many enemies because of his activity in forming an organization to conduct a campaign against violators of the fish and game laws. The police subsequently exonerated the two Italians detained. This afternoon they were looking1 up a man who was once taken Into custody at the instigation of Justice Knowles, Who alleged that the man had threatened his life.

Sept. A report on war finances, which Is to be submitted on , Thursday to the British Association for the Advancement of Science, states that there has been an increase In taxation of seven to twelve per cent. It is said in the report that the moratorium has enabled foreign customers to postpone payments when the rate of exchange favored England, thus "saving enormous sunns to foreign countries indebted to Ijendon.' Now that the rate Is so much the other way, the report says, England's best weapon is to raise a large loan in the United States and supplement It by "discouragement of imports, encouragement of exports, and Increased economy of consumption."

Five men gained the Victoria Cross during the landing from the transport in a particularly hot fight. The battleship shown In the background protected the men while landing from the transport.! The peculiar markings of the ship are a ruse adopted to deceive the enemy as to the speed of the transport. The white paint along the sides gives the impression that the vessel is moving at a great speed. ; During the fighting incident. to the landing, the three men below distinguished themselves for bravery and were awarded the Victoria Cross. They are, from left to right: Sub-Lieutenant William Ragot Walker R. N.; Midshipman George Leslie Drewry, R. N. R., and Surgeon P. D. Kelly, R. N.

In an address at . the opening session of the State conference of sanitary officers here tonight, Dr. William C. Gorgas, Surgeon-General of the United States Army, declared that the most effective method of dealing with bad social conditions, which are the root of bad hygiene, was to raise wages.

At the session proper, which will open tomorrow, a wide range of topics, from mosquitoes to tuberculosis, and food supplies to sewage disposal, will be discussed.

I RUSSIANS FLY RED CROSS OVER FORT Austrians Fire On Position Alleging It to Be Fortified LIN, Sept. . (By Wireless to ayvir,e) The official statement issued X Vienna on September 6, as received here, contains the following: "A Red Cross flag has been flown over the monastery at Lukzanow which is in the midst of the Russian front. Since it is improbable that the Russians would establish a hospital In the midst of their fighting line and since the Austrians made It absolutely certain that the monastery has been strongly fortified, it is to be expected tha!t the Russians will soon make a report stating that the Red Cross flag was fired upon." The version of the Austrian official statement yesterday which was received by way of London did not contain the foregoing passage. Apparently it was eliminated by the British censor.

AUSTRIAN AMBASSADOR . , HAS DATE WITH LANSING DUMB A TO EXPLAIN THE NEWS REPORTS Dual Citizenship is; Involved in I Question of Asking Austrian i Gun-Makers to Quit WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 Secretary Lansing has granted art interview at the State Department for tomorrow to Dr. Constantino Theodore Dumba, the Austro-Hungarian Ambassador, who desires to : discuss published reporta that he has taken steps to Interfere with the manufacture of war munitions in this country Dr. Dumba's request for an interview reached Secretary Lansing this morn-in. It was said he wished to discuss dispatches seized by British officials from James J, Archibald, an American correspondent, acting as messenger. Involves Dual Citizenship These dispatches, said to reveal that the Minister had plans for handicapping munitions plants by calling out Austro-Hungarlans working in (establishments making war supplies for the allies, were denied. The question of dual citizenship, long discussed between this and several European Governments, Is involved. The White House and the State Department continued to preserve strict silence today on the published statement of Ambassador Dumba of Austria that he had taken part In a movement to curtail production of war materials in the United States by reminding the Austro-Hungarian citi zens that they were violating the crim inal code of their native land by ac cepting employment in the munitions plants. The Ambassador's frank statement of his activities, however, was received with undisguised surprise in official service as it was among other diplo mats. Admittedly th situation waa regarded as . one of the most unusual and susceptible of development that has arisen in diplomatic quarters since the outbreak of the war. Ambassador Wants to Explain It was understood that the Ambas sador wished to offer explanations of dispatches which British officials found in custody of James F. J. Arch ibald, an American newspaper cor respondent, regarding American war munition factories. ' State Department officials said Ambassador Page had sent word to the existence of these dispatches and that they had been forwarded. Ambassador Dumba,. however, it is understood, will produce copies of the papers which were directed to the Foreign Office at Vienna. Officials here point out that the sub ject is a new one to American diplo macy and that there are absolutely no precedents. It is declared that unless existence of a conspiracy can be shown it is doubtful whether any statutory violation has been involved. Legal Aspect Intricate The question of the legality of ap proaching naturalized American cit izens by foreign Ambassadors in time of war is said to involve the question of dual citizenship which has been a subject of continuous controversy be tween the United States and several European powers. This Government never, has been able to obtain from the French Government and abandonment of its claim to jurisdiction with in French territory of persons of French birth or descent even to the second sreneration. This Government has been obliges in manv cases to recognize the Euro pean doctrine that the Individual and not the territory govern, Because u was npt able to resist its application which would involve a breach of of ficial relations with several European powers. Therefore some officials can not see the way clear to make strong legal protest against the action or me Austrian Ambassador in himself to hlg countrymen in the United States and warning them of the consequences of the Austrian law.
