machine toward the left, bo that in a
few moments the wheels grated
againct the curbing. Then a man In
a gray suit and a cap stepped on the
running board of Slragusa's machine
and pointed a revolver at him.
The man commanded Siragusa to hoia
up his hands, and Siragusa rtul so, but
the man fired a shot at him anyway,
the 'bullet striking Siragusa In the right
shoulder* He fell back In his seat and
the bandit srabbed the bag of money
and checks and ran Into Second avenue.
Almost at onoe Siragusa recovered,
jumped from his machine and set out In
pursuit, shouting for the police. His
cries attracted much attention and ecv
eral men to stop the bandit as he
rounded the corner Into Second avenue,
but he fired two shots at them and they
fell buck. Then the bandit jumped into
the automobile containing the three
men, which hed turned the corner, and
the machine w?nt swiftly down Second
avenue. Several persons gave the police
the numbers or the license tags of the
Slragura cnPapsed after he had gono
a short distance Into Second avenue and

there was no objection from the Camp
"I desire to state to your Honor," Mr.
Morris told the court, "that a number
of the leading cltisens of Astoria have
communicated with me in regard to this
case and they desire to give evidence.
Mrs. Hoose did not throw that tomato
and we can show it by further evidence

Mr. Morris said that one of his wit

tho Roose faction Is that the tomatoes
were thrown by nasty, bad boys.
BEATEN BY A NEGRO
Jersey Posses Out Pursuing
Man Who Blackjacked and
HammoNton, N. J., Aug. 15.?Armed
men in motor cars are hurrying over
the country surrounding this city In an
effort to catch a negro jvho entered the
home of Mrs. Mary Rltter In B&rrlngton
and blackjacked her until she was un
conscious. The negro escaped with $10v
In c&eh which the woman had hidden
under her pillow.
The crime has caused much excite
ment In the vicinity of Hommonton and
Barrlngton. The authorities fear an
attempt may bo made to lynch the
negro If he Is caught. They are pre
paring to take steps to prevent any
harm to him.
Mrs. Rltter had been 111 for some
time, and was lying helpless in her bed,
alone In the house, when the negro en
terd thruugh a rear room, the door of
which had been left unlocked. He
walked all over the house. When Mrs.
Rltter, hearing the heavy footsteps
about tho place, demanded to know who
w&3 there, the negro walked Into her
room and stood for a moment staring
"What's the matter with you?" he
"I'm sick," said Mrs. Rltter. "I'm not
able to sit up."
The negro demanded that she give
him 'her money and Mrs. Rltter'bold him
that she had none. He said he would
kill her If she refused to tell him where
she had 'bidden her cash. When she re
peated that she had none he leaned
forward and struck her several times
on the head with a blackjack, breaking
iher scalp and knocking her uncon
scious. Then he eowched the room and
found the money under the pillow, ap
parently only after he had ransacked
the bureau drawers and upset all the
furniture In the room.
The negro paid no rottention to tho
bloodstained, unconscious woman on the
bed. but went upstairs and ransacked
every room In the house. He stole a few
articles of small value, hut so far as the
authorities have been able to learn he
was unable to find any money other
than that, he got from beneath Mrs.
| Bitter's pillow. Mrs. Ritter believes
that he must have spent at least halt
I an hour In the house after blackjacking
her. He was still prowling around up
stairs when she became conscious, but
when she began to scream she heard
him open and close the front door and
run down the walk toward the road.
Mrs. Rltter .. reamed for some time
i before any ono heard her. Neighbors
went into the house and after caring
for her gave the alarm. Every auto
mobile in the neighborhood was at once
pressed into service, men went to tholr
homes to get their weapons, and fifteen
minutes after the negro had escaped
several automobiles filled wltih armed
men had started in pu'rusit.

FIGHT ON PONTOON
BRIDGE PLAN OPENS
Steamboat and Towing Com
panies Protest Against Strue
tnre Across Hudson.
If the proposed pontoon bridge across
the Hudson between Yonkers and Al
pine. N. J? U erected, all river traffic
will have to be abandoned, repreaenta
tlvee of steamboat and towing compa
nies Insisted yesterday at a protest
meeting held at the offices of the Hud
son Navigation Company, Pier 82, Hud
son River. The contemplated struc
ture, It was argued, would not only close
the river to large craft, but It would
bo Impossible for tugs and their town
to pass through the narrow draw. An
other meeting la to be held In the name
offices August 23, w*ien It Is expected
a permanent organization to oppose *he
construction of the bridge will bo formed.
It la proposed In a bill already be
fore Congress to build the pontoon bridge
upon forty or more of the wooden Bhlna
owned by the Government and built by
Ihe Shipping Hoard during the war. The
rtructuro would rest on the hulls of j
these vessels, scores of which are lying
Idle, and they would be anchored across j
stream, with a draw In the centre. It J
is urged hy the proponents of the plan j
that the structure would meet the tem
porary needs of automobile and trucking |
traffic across the Hudson for about "en j
years, or until the big steel bridge across '
the river at Fifty-ninth street is erected.
Mlddle.ton A. Boland, receiver for ihe j
Hudson Navigation Company, presided
at yesterday's meeting. cA which there
wero a score or more of representatives
of various companies. Mr. Boland sail
that two of his company's steamships,
tho Berkshire and the Charles W. Morse,
could not pass through the forty foot |
t'raw which the bridge plans provide
"Any such bridge would make all J
river navigation impossible," declared :
Eben E. Olcott, president of the Hudson
Kivor Day Line. "In a fog, for instance,
no pilot could possibly got one of our
steamers through a forty foot draw,
and a pontoon bridge would not stand
the strain of a wider one."
It v.-as argued by Bruce G. FroaJ
i f the Cornell Steamboat Company that
the bridge would be of little value to
automohlltsts and trucking companies,
is in order to accommodate the rlvor
traffic It would be necessary to keep
the draw bridge open about ten hours a
Two committees were named at tho
meeting. One will coordinate all of the
river shipping Interests to present united
opposition before representatives of the
War Department at a meeting to do
held In the Army Building. Whitehall
rtrect, August 31. The other committee
is to line up the various business In
terests in cities and towns along tne
jlver and to perfect an organization.
Letters opposing the bridge were read
from chambers of commerce and boards
of trades in Newburgh. Kingston, Pough
