Despite United Railroads' Em«
ploye, Crowd Rescues Man
Pinned Beneath Wheels
Police and Fire Departments
Answer Riot Call to Save ln«
spector From Injury
A riot call which sent the police and
fire departments hurrying to the scene
io live Inspector Tt. A. Crothers of the
Irslted rtailroads from manhandling by
an infuriated mob followed a streetcar.
.iccident yesterday afternoon, in which
l.cc Schaefer, a clerk, residing at 81*4
St»incr street, was pinned underneath
the wheels of a McAllister street car at
Sixth and Market streets. The crowd.
"Tigered at the attitude of the street
< ar official and his utter disregard of
tue agonies of the injured man. rushed
upon him, threatening and shouting.
E\*en the clanging bells of the fire
nnd police wagons failed to part the
closely packed ranks surging and
swaying toward the thoroughly frlght-
Ned inspector, with some shouting.
"Lynch him!" The hundreds of Satur
•i«y shoppers flocked to the spot and in
.7 few minutes after the accident the
scene was black with people for more
than two blocks.
IJRAGGED UNDER CAR
Schaefer had boarded the car oppo
site the Emporium and rode on the
front step. At Sixth street a puff of
wind struck hJm and in his efforts to
pave his hat he lost his footing. For
SO feet he was dragged along, and
finally fell, the car coming to stop right
• •vcr his body. A' crowd Instantly gath
or^d. and there was a spontaneous
movement to lift the car up so that the
man could be removed. According to
numerous spectators Inspector Croth
r-rs, appearing on the scene, began to
• rder the crowd back, telling them that
they were blocking the south track and
holding back another car on its way to
"We are not bothering about your
old time schedules." shouted a voice in
the' crowd. "Get the man out first."
The crowd took up the cry and
purjred toward the official. Others
rushed to a nrarby corner, where a
building was being erected, and came
liaok with beams and planking. Before
there could be a proper realization of
what was happening the crowd had lost
complete control of itself and shouts
and threats filled the air. Crothers,
thoroughly alarmed, threw himself on
Jhc mercy of Policeman Casey. It \u25a0was
palpably evident, however, that a call
for more help was urgent and a riot
\:b.ll was turned In.
The mob, absolute masters of the mo
sr^nt. wasted r.o time. Half a dozen
i:i?3 sprang for the trolley pole of the
• p.r' tearing It down. Beams wore
placed beneath the. car under •which the
man lay and a hundred men. threw their
weights against them.
"Over!" said some one, and over the
car went, completely off the track.
Schaefer's mangled body was withdrawn
and placed in an ambulance, and then
the crowd calmly replaced the dis-
Jodped car once again on the tracks.
Schaefer \u25a0was taken to the central
emergency hospital, where It was found
necessary to have both his legs ampu
tated. There is little hope for his re

AGED WOMAN DIES
IN BURNING HOUSE
Scores of Sleepers Menaced and
Seattle Firemen Bruised by
Fall of Ruins N
SEATTLE. July S.— Fire just before
daylight this morning destroyed a
wooden two story lodging house at
408 Terrace street, in which scores were
sleeping, and an aged woman, . Mrs.
Eliza Borella, was burned to death.
Three firemen were severely bruised
by the fall of the ruins while they
were searching for bodies, it being
feared at the time of • the fire that
many lodgers had perished.
The house was near the city hall and
police headquarters, and the ..people
driven out by the flames were sheltered
iri the police station. Most of them
escaped with ' only their sleeping
clothes. The property loss Is small.
Mrs. Borella, who was 80 years of
age, came to Seattle from England 50
years ago, and was ; well known ;and
possessed means. Once, she'had owned
all the land around where the lodging
house stood. . Her children and grand
children were born there. She lived in
a room In the dingy old lodging house.
Her body was almost destroyed, identi
fication being made from the teeth.

Fifteen New Members Make
Mutual Protective Agreement,
but One Is Independent
; BERLIN, July 3. — With the exception
of one man the members of the Potash
syndicate and 15 new ones have signed
a new mutual protective agreement.
The exception is Waldemar Schmitt
man, proprietor of the Zollestedt and

contracts to supply various American
fertilizer, concerns with potash for a
term of 1 0 years.
The American agents here have been

LACK OF A NICKEL
CAUSES LOSS OF $1,500
Obstinate Telephone Girl Pre
vents Sounding of Fire Alarm
TRENTON, N. J., July 3. — The lack of
a nickel to. drop into a telephone slot
and the obstinacy of an exchange girl
cost Oscar F. Niedt, once councilman
of this city, $1,500. when his barn was
destroyed by fire last night.
Niedt's barn caught fire about 10
o'clock, and he 'hastened to a telephone
in the neighborhood to summon a fire
engine. . \u25a0
Being told. to drop a nickel into the
slot he; discovered he had none. He
told the girl that it was a case of life
and death, but : she insisted that fire
headquarters : could not be called up
without the proper charge being made.
Niedt begged, pleaded and threatened
in vain. • The exchange girl refused
to notify the fire 1 department 1 , and in
despair Niedt fled to .another place,
finally sending in an alarm.. It was
too ; -late .when the fire engines reached
the place, and the barn and its contents
.were in ashes.
