PATROLMAN STEGNER AND BOR
DEN WOUNDED IN ATTEMPT
TO QUELL DISTURBANCE
ON STATE STREET
Three Women, One White, and Four
Men Held as Material Witnesses
Motorcycle Patrolman Geo
Stegner who was shot by William
Smiih, colored, while attempting to
quell a disturbance in a shack in the
rear of 146 State street Wednesday
night died at the City hospital at
3:30 A. M. Thursday. Smith, who
was arrested shortly after midnight,
has confessed to shooting Stegner
and also Patrolman William Borden,
was who was not seriously wounded.*
Smith was arrested by Detectives
John McGowan, Edward Hughes and
Paul Meyers at "Steve's" rooming
house, 319 East Seventh" street at
1:30 A. M. He had taken off his
clothes and was in bed when the desecured
tectives found him, but he had his re
loaded with fresh cartridges
under the covers. He made no re
sistance, however, and was taken to
Central station where yesterday
morning he signed a confession for
Chief Sommer detailing the entire
Three Women, Four Men Held
Three women, one of them white,
and four men are being held at Cen
tral station as material witnesses.
Smith, who also is known as Wil
liam Johns, told police that he had
"given one of the woman some money
and that she left the shack. He said
he found her with another colored
man, nearby and when he demanded
his monev back, she screamed.
Neighbors hearing the disturbance
called the police. Patrolman Borden,
knowing the shack was a "tough
hangout" asked Ducas station to send
some assistance, then started for the
scene of the brawl. He threw open
the shack door, yelled "stick them
up," and WAS greeted bv a volley of
shots. One bullet struck him in the
chest and he fell.
Stegner Mortally Wounded
Stegner had just come up at this
time. Stepping over Borden's body
he attempted to enter the shack, but
he also was greeted with a volley of
pistol shots, and fell beside his fel
low officer, mortally wounded.
A riot squad was then sent to the
shack, but the inmates had fled
through another door and the re
serves found only the two wounded
officers. Both were taken to the City
hosnital, where Stegner died at 3:30
A. M.. after an operation lasting
more than an hour. He had been
shot-an the abdomen.
The bullet which struck Borden hit
a rib and was deflected around his
body, making a long, ugly surface
wound, but not penetrating a vital
organ. The shock of the bullet fired
at close range, striking his body,
caused temporary numbness and par
alysis of the upper part of the body.
After the shooting Smith told
Chief Sommer that he went to his
home at 170 Eatin street, then to
Curlev Campbell's place on Wabasha
near Fourth street. He then went to
Seventh and Wabasha streets and!
boarded a street car, getting off near
the rooming house where he was ar
Said He Killed Two Cops
His confession omitted a visit to
the home of William Wilson, a col
ored officer and friend of Smith who
lives at 149 Chicago avenue. Police
learned that he visited the Wilson
home, and in the presence of Mrs.
Wilson and Dave Brodky, a student,
extracted six empty shells from his
pistol and reloaded it, saying: "I've
just killed two cops and I'm leav-
Smith was not the only person
armed or using firearms. Police also
are holding another colored man who
is reported to. have shot a half dozen
times, at nothing in particular, ap
parently just to be in on the shoot
Funeral arrangements for Stegner
have not been completed, but mem
bers of the police force will act as
pallbearers and as many police and
firemen as can be off duty at the
time will attend the services.
Praised by Chief Sommer
Stegner was born in St. Paul 27
years ago. He became a member of
the police department in April, 1919,
and has Jheen one of the besfc^ntotor
cycle officers on the force since, ac
cording to Chief Sommer.

a bride of three weeks, his mother,
Mrs. Anna L. Stegner, 1600 Laurel
avenue, a brother, W. E. Stegner of
Albert Lea, and a sister, Mrs. John

vived by a 6-year-old daughter, Dor
othy, bv a former marriage.
You Needed It Then
You Need It Now
That government life insurance, to
which only veterans of the World
War are eligible, is the best and
cheapest protection, is generally con
ceded. Insurance companies do not
compete for the veterans' business
and almost without exception are
whole-heartedly co-operating with
the government in advising the boys
of opportunities open to them as a
result of their war service. Listen
to what $he secretary of one of the
largest life insurance companies in
the world says of Government War
"Of course life insurance companies
cannot grant insurance at less than
cost, but the government offers in
surance to the soldiers at less than it
would cost the government to grant
that insurance. (That is because the
government bears all expenses of
management, etc.) The government
is justified in this liberality in con
sideration of the fact that these vet
erans have risked their lives, or have
.been willing^ to risk their lives for
low rate charged." 'T"K
made the above statement has in
structed all of its agents to refuse to
take applications from ex-service
men until they have taken the full
amount of government insurance to
which they are entitled. The U. S.
Veterans' Bureau is handling the in
surance business for the federal gov
HOW TO REMOVE SOOT
Large numbers of shingle roof and
defective flue fires are being report
ed, due to the increasing use of soft
coal. The accumulations of soot on
heating surfaces reduce the value of
the fuel, and frequently clog the flues
and start fires. The Federal Fuel
Administration Board suggests the
following plan for ^removal of soot:
The fire is put into good condition
with a substantial body of -hot fuel.
Common salt, thoroughly dried, is
then thrown or sprinkled onto- the in
candescent fuel bed in a quantity de
pending entirely on the size of the
furnace. In the case of a house heat
ing furnace, one pound at a time is
ample in the case of a large power
plant boiler, four or five scoopsful
may be required. The dampers are
so as to maintain the fur
nace temperature and the salt is al
lowed to remain until the fumes have
Immediately upon charging the
salt, the furnace becomes filled with
dense white fumes which may re
quire as much as half an hour to en
tirely disappear. If results are not
on the first application, it
should be repeated as many tiroes as
Once the heating surface is thor
oughly cleaned a small application
everv few davs is usually sufficient
to keep it so.
Everyone using soft coal is urged
bv the administration to use this re
markably simple and cheap process
frr retting rid of the soot, cleaning
and heating surfaces of boilers, thus
saving large amounts of coal, pre
venting fires from chimneys and gen
erally conserving all along the line of
heating and the production of power.
