POLICE HAVE THE BRUTE
Burly 2?egro Attempts to Assault
Two White Ladies.
FOUGHT LIKE A WILD BEAST
Tramped From Baltimore to Soutli

ple Xuw Sorry He "Wrnsu't Lynched.
A big, burl j-. negro tramp assaulted two
white ladies, attacked three policemen,
and like uu enraged wild beast, desperately
fought a mob of fifteen men and boys
who were attempting to capture him in
South Washington yesterday afternoon.
The victims of the brute are Mrs. G. T
Sanfoid. the wife of a grocer, at No. 21J
Ti.irUen-and-.hriir street southwest, and
Mrs. Ella MiilK Chappie, or No. 219 Thir
teenth street southwest.
About 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Mi-. Sanford v;an standing in the back
door of her husband's store, when a negro
came up through the alley and asked the
price of Mime watermelons which lay out
side the door. Mrs. Sanibrd told him
and while uhe was selecting one for him
the negto seemed to be looking about the
place as if to tee If there v. as anyone
inside the store or In sight, and even
ada;ice.l as far as the kitchen door an J
When Mr. Sanford asked him for the
money ln-fore bunding him the melon the
negro r-ftjed to take it unless the rer
milted him to eat it in the shed in the
rear and would herself carry it there for
him. Tlik'j.he it-fused to do, and the brute
then dt-mt.nded to know "where the toss
Mr- S.mford was Lot at home at the
time, and there was no one in the house
Willi his wire except his two daughters,
Mlis May, a pretty young girl of fifteen,
and a child of eight year. As the negro
looked suspicious, Mrs. Sanford felt ariaid
of him, and, thinking to frighten him
away, -.lie told him that her husband was
"Yuusen lyhV; hc'Mlun gone away," re
plied the negro, with an oath. "I tells
you lo come and bring dat melon down
in the ehed," and with that he made a
pprmg at the woman, who turned and run
Inio the house shouting for help. When
Miss May nppiared in respomo to her
mother's calls the negro demanded in a
surly tone to know where her father was.
June a the brute was about to continue
his attack a young man named Jones,
who drives a wagon for Baker Beren, en
tered the store, and the negro fled, running
down the alley. As oon as he learned
or the negro's conduct Jones took after
him, bat lie hnd already got out ot sight.
He bad gone dawn Uu idley and entered the
ucle yard -of Mrs. S. F. Legge, at No.
210 lllth str,Tt, which Is surrounded by a
high lonrd fence, which prevented Mr.
Jones from seeing him.
There lie knocked at the back door aprt
aslied the colored servant girl for a drink
o viater. Tills procured for him he de
manded something .to cat and received a
good supply of bread and meat. While
the brute was devouring tills Mrs. Chap
plo's little daughter went out Into the
back ird where the negro sat and he im
mediately asked her to tell her mama
to come out as he wanted to see her
The child ran into the house and informed
her mother, and Mrs. Chappie, who Is
-Mrs. Legge's daughter, went to the door
to see wi.at wni wanted. As soon as she
stepped into the yard the brute beized her
Kith both hands and attempted to drag
her back into one corner of the yard.
The young woman fought himdesperately
and managed to tear herself from his grasp.
Her cries attracted the attention of her
mother, Mrs. Legge, who, uion learning
her daughter's danger, rushed out into the
street for assistance. There she met
young Jones, who was still looking for
the culprit and he hastened in pursuit and
was soon joined by a dozen men and boys.
Through ul'-eys and over backyard fences
they chased the fugitive out into B street
where the negro jumped on a passing horse
car and attempted to escape. The mob,
however, was close at hlsheels, andseizing
him "violently, dragged him from the car
and finally succeeded in overpowering him
for a time.
Turk roltceman Davis, attracted by the
excitement of the chase, came up, and
arter a lively Tight with the brute, during
which he was compelled to use his baton
liberally over the negro's head, he suc
ceeded In securing him with a pair of
handcuffs, and telephoned for a patrol
While waiting for the arrival of the
patiol the negro made another desperate
attempt to escape, and with the strength
ot a Snrrson he snapped the strong steel
handcuffs apart as though they had been
nothing more than fragile weeds. While
being placed in the wagon he made an
other effort to get away and this time
attacked Pol'cemcn Rink andSchrader and
gave them a though rustle to subdue him.
Severe! men in the crowd were ntruck by
the negro In his attempt to escape from
Upon reacHng the station the negro
first gave his name as John Pinetree and
afterward changed it to Collins, so that
he was entered on the blotter as John
PJnetree, alias Collins. He Is abouttwenty
years old, of very utout build, weigh.sabout
100 pounds, and Is very black and has a
vicious face. He says he le a tramp and
came here yesterday from Baltimore. Fur
ther than that he would say nothing con
cerning himself. After he had been
locked up the men in the crowd were sorry
that they had not lynched the brute. Mrs.
Sanford and Mrs. Chappie called at the
station yesterday afternoou and identi

THOMAS TO PHEPARE A LAW.
To Iut.nre Safety nt Railroad Cross
logs in the District.
Attornej for the District Thomas yes
terday had a conference with the Com
nilftSloners regarding the numerous recent
disasters at grade crossings, and gave
it as ids opinion that there is at present
no law under which the railroad oflicidls
can be held. To bo sure the District
statutes say the gates must be kept down
while trains are crossing, but they do not
say by whom, and the men are relieved
from duty at 9 o'clock In the evening, sc
Uiat there is no way of fastening the
lenponsibility. More than this, there
is no penalty provided for an infraction
ot the law.
Mr. Thomas advanced the opinion that a
law should be passed providing that no
engineer shall pass a crossing unless the
gates are down This, he said, would en
able the authorities to fix the blame
"when avcidents occurred. He was Instruct
ed by the Commissioners to formulate his
Jdeas upon the subject and submit them.
