Police Inclined to Blame Railway Of.

'-^Little hope remains in the police de

Though there Is positive evidence thnt
the highwaymen uro members of the
Rang which came from tho past, nil
effort* to connect the gangs have failed.
No clews to the whereabouts of the
car robbnrs romnln. After exhausting
efforts the county nnd city officers have,
traced evrry bit of ground and have
found nothing. Thny now rely on the
efforts of outside officers to bring about
the capture of the criminals.
11l feeling against the street car com
pany still exists among the officers.
It Is known that Capt. Flammer and
his men In the detective department
knew nothing of the circumstances of
the case for many hours, with the ex
ception of the slight Information given
by Dr. O. Wllcox. attached to the Sis

being shot, leaped from the moving
car to notify the officers.

M due to the tardy information. "If
the car company had only Informed us
of tho men and given us their descrip

the Los Angeles officers.
Now that the Los Angeles authorities
have secured all Information possible
at this late date, descriptions of the
men have flooded the country. An
effort will be made to locate the men
by all the officers In surrounding towns.
The circumstances of the tardy inform

KING OF LILIPUTIA GOES BACK
August Tift, Austrian Dwarf, De-
ported for the Second Time
Because of Size
Special to the Herald.
NEW YORK. Dec. 26.— Aupust Tift,
an Austrian drawf from the village of
Bucarri, went back to his native land
yesterday morning at the order of
Immigration Commissioner "Watch
cm on board of the Patricia. This
is the second time in his twenty-four
years that the little man has tried to
come to America.
He Is only four feet and three Inches
high, and was sent back last June
because he was considered not big
enough to wrestle with a citizenship
in this country. Taunted by his friends
on his home coming, he was spurred
on ' to repeat the effort, and landed
here for the second time on Monday
from the Pannonia.
When qupstioned by Commissioner
TVatchorn Tift, in broken English, said
that he had been told that there was
'6. city of little men near New York and
that he had come here to find them,
and was, in fact, willing to become,
monarch of the Lilliputians In this
country. At last It was discovered that
the little men that he was looking for

ONE MAN KEEPS UNION ALIVE
Drivers' Agent Pays Dues for Six
Hundred Scattered Men Every
Month to Do It
Special to The Herald.
: CHICAGO, Dec. 26.— Chicago has a
phantom union. Although the Railway
Kxpreos Drivers' Union was broken up
by the teamsters' strike last summer
and its membership scattered from
Alaska to South Africa, James B.
Barry, erstwhile business agent of the
organization, appears every month and
pays dues for 600 men In the Chicago
Federation of Labor.
■ This unprecedented proceeding— one
man paying dues for 600— Is believed
to be part of "Skinny" Madden'a
scheme to regain control of the Chicago
Federation of Labor. It Is known that
not half a dozen of the express drivers
remain In Chicago.

It is not to be allowed a place In the

other food products susceptible to
strong odors. That is the provision in
an ordinance to regulate Ice boxes and
refrigerators, introduced in the upper
house of the council last night.
The ordinance, It is asserted, Is not
due particularly to any aldprmanir
aversion to limburger. In fact some of
them have at various times ben sus

of cheese in connection with Dutch
lunch. But they like it "straight"— as
they do their butter and milk. They do
not want a mingling: of odors.

said he was requested to introduce It

any milk or butter in any ice box or
refrigerator used to store meat which

PHILADELPHIA, Dee. 26.— Just
about dusk last evening the telephone
bell in police headquarters in the city

answered It himself.
"Oh, help me! I'm locked in this

"Where? Where?" demanded the
lieutenant. The musical voice was
fainter this time:
"In the Estey building on the fifth
floor. Please come and get me!" it said
ending in a little shriek.
Lieut. Keyser picked out the fastest
runner on the reserve force, No. 22, and
dispatched him with all speed to 1120
Chestnut street .
The elevator in the Estey building
was in charge of a little, old gray
haired woman. She looked quizzically
at the big reserve cop when he puffed
"Where's the woman what's locked In
a room?" he demanded.
"What are you talking about?" said
the elevator woman.
When No. 22 had finished explaining
there was excitement in the building.
There were gathered about him two
watchmen, two porters, seven scrub
women and an innumerable company
of office boys, each one of whom was
Just sure he knew which room It was.
