Andrew Heen Sustained a Terrible
Fall While Playing in New No.
3 School Building on Pitts
Andrew Heen, the seven-year-old son
of Andrew Heen, of 6:'4 Klrst court.
South Scranton, Is at the Lackawanna
hospital suffering from a double frac
ture of the skull and dislocation ot
the right collar bone. IJu was In
jured ot 5.30 o'clock last evening ttt
the now No. 3 public school building
now In the course of construction at
tlie corner of Pittston avenue and
The scene of the accident has been,
since tho excavation for tho founda
tion, the playground of hundreds of
boys from the South Side and not
withstanding that every available ef
fort has been made to keep boys from
about the building the youngsters have
found a way to elude being caught.
Yesterday afternoon when tho classes
were dismissed from No. " school on
River street a number of bovs, Heen
among the number, waited until the
carpenters went home. As the last
man passed out of sight a rush was
made into tho structure, which Is
now in a comparatively skeleton shape,
nothing being erectea tin the founda
tion but the framework. Young Heen
climbed tho top, two stoiles high, and
while running across the Joists ho miss
ed his footing nnd was precipitated to
tho cellar. Tho boy landed on his head
and shoulders Into a pile of stone.
When picked up he was unconscious
and was hastily taken to his home.
Dr. Kolb, who had learned of the
accident, hurried to the Heen home,
arriving there as the Injured boy was
being taken Into tho house. Fpon
examination he found tho Injuries to
be as above noted. Some one tele
phoned to the Lackawanna hospital
from the Century hose house at the
time of the accident and when the am
bulance leached the scene, and later
went to tho Heen'.s house, Dr. Kolb
advised tho parents to have their son
taken to that Institution nnd accord
ingly tho boy was removed.
At midnight ho was yet unconscious
and not the slightest Indications were
apparent that would give any hope
for his recovery. Dr. Corset- stated
that It Is not probable that the boy
would live three days.

champions and aspiring champions lots
of trouble and has won much of th
hitters' money during tho past few
years. He knows every trick in tho

strength und. while not claiming tho
ability to throw the champion, has

that Rocber could not throw him. Put

21 mlnutps nnd 20 seconds from the call
Thet 1' was no repetition of Tuesday
night's delay In selecting a referee.
T1k principals knew that In the audi
ence was "Wily" Roche, of New YotU
city, manager of "Mysterious Hilly"
Smith, who Is to box Jim Judge In this
t ity nest Monday night. They ngreed
upon him .ind be was called to thf
stage. According to the articles sign
ed at the Westminster hotel Tuesday
night no holds were barred and Hying
and rolling falls oft tho mat were
not to count. Only pin falls were to
count nnd It was agreed on the stage
that throe seconds down must elapse
to constitute a tall.
At the call or time the men fiddled
for .v hold for the space of a minute.
McGee finally went down nnd for four
or ih-e minutes prevented Roeber from
finding a hold. McGee finally wrig
gled off th- mat and nftcr n brief de
lay work was resumed. McGee again
chose the defensive and after slipping
out of a hnlf-Nelson secured a body
hold on Roeber from tho rear. The
champion was occupied nearly two
minutes in breaking It.
MeGee had been angered by an elbow
blow In the fnco and rushed Roeber
oft th niut and against the arch at
the left of the stage. McGee's temper
wa? no better when they were colled
to the center. He rushed the cham
pion again, this time to the rear ot the
stage and under the curtain. After re
turning to tho mat McGee quickly
sought a prostrate position. Ho broke
a sacond and then a third-half Nelson
nnd finally a half-strangle hold.
GOT THF STRANGLE HOLD.
Roeber worked bis left arm into an
opening and twisted McGee almost
upon his back. Rocber got one arm
free and secured a full stomach hold.
Roeber was In a sitting position with
McGee's back upon his left knee. Tho
champion's muscles began to contract
and McGee's eyes to protrude. Tho
latter'o face grew darker as Roeber
continued to strangle and to force bis
opponent's head downward to the floor.
The head finally dropped from Roeber's
kne but with a last grand burst of
strength he kept his shoulders above
the canvas. The strain, however, was
more than he couid stand. Gradually
his shoulders sank and at last settled
squarely on tlie mat.
Referee Roche waited the full three
seconds and gave his decision to Roe
ber after 21 minutes and 20 seconds nf
wrestling. During the progress of tho
bout the audience was wild with en
thusiasm. The sympathy was with the
beaten man. At the conclusion of tho
match, Skel'y in McGee's behalf chal
lenged Roeber to wrestle for $250 a
sld ot Music hall next Monday night

boxing contest. Roeber was forced to
decline as the bookings for his com

He Came to Scranton to Make Poor
Use of It.
"Wily" Roche, of New York city,
manager for "Mysterious Wily" Smith,
came to Scranton yesterday In the in
terest of the latter. Roche said ho was
satisfied with all the arrangements
made by the American Sporting club
for the contest between Smith and Jim
Judge next Monday night. He s.ald the
bout had aroused much Interest In New
York, where sporting men were won

been offered on a favorite nnd he was
not disposed to break the Ice. It was
his opinion that while stacks of Judge
money abounded, the owners were
standing off for better odds than can
now be obtained.
Scranton sports were gleeful over the
disposition of Smith's manager to hold
his money for more generous odds.
They argued that his caution was nn
evidence that he believed the mysteri
ous William was to come In contact
with a proposition dlfllcult to solve.
Roche will return to Scranton Saturday
or Sunday with his champion. He will
probably be given. 11 chance to dis
tribute his wealth before tho gong
sounds on Monday night.
Word comes from Judge's training
quarters near Carbondale that the
Scranton boy Is In the best ot trim and
nearly at weight. Roche Is non-committal
about Smith. The former says
little except that Smith will enter the
ropes a champion and will finish tho
bout under the same title. Roche re
