Little Freddie Schutrumpf, the three-year-old
son of Mr. John Schutrumpf, a
tailor at No. -116 New York avenue north
west, came very near being added to the
long list of victims or tlie trolley monster
about 7 o'clock last evening.
The accident occurred on the Eckington

where the cars are usually run at a ter

Car No. 27, west bound, in charge of
Conductor Heck, struck the child while
he wns standing on the track about 300

SAVED BY THE FENDER.
But for the fender he would have been
ground to pieces beneath the heavy wheels
or the car. He was carried fully 300
feet before the car was finally brought to
a standstill, so rapidly was it moving.
The child with a llttlesbrothcr, aged five

Several of those who witnessed the ac

away, and it could have been stopped in
ample time to avoid striking the child had
it been moving at an ordinary rate of speed.
There was considerable Indignation among
the bystnrders, most of whom regarded the

part of the conductor and motormau. When
some of them remonstratedw-ith Conductor
Heck because ho was driving the car at
such a rapid speed he stated that it was
necessary to do so in order to make the

Heck, it is taid, bearsr the reputation of

SETTLERS LEAVING TEftggVJiP5.;
The excitement among the settlers la
North western Wyoming over the threat
ened uprising or the Bannock and Shushona
Indians is growing more intense every day.
They are 'leaving their ranches in large
numbers and gathering at favored points
for mutual protection In case the irate
Indians return to seek vengeance for tho
death of their brother braves.
The story or the killing of the three whites
and six Indians is spreading alarm at
rapid rate. Innumerable pleasure parties
have given up contemplated trips Into the
mountain country, which abounds in the
j fincst sport of all kinds at this seasn.
The settlers, too, are beconnag thoroughly
aroused, and if they are not soou protected
by government troops they will take the
field in protection of their own homes
and lives, and they are well qualified by
long experience m thts country to do even
more elective righting than the regulars.

more dangerous than the troops. The Reds
know that they can surrender to th sol
diers and they .will be in no further
danger, but when the rrontier votanteera

Indians do themselves. They shoot to
