THE AJtGUS, TUESDAY. OCTOBER 10, lOOfi.
Panic in Morning Fire. There was
something of a panic at 1 o'clock yes
terday morning when the cry of "fire"
sounded through Miss Benton's board
ing house in the Ficke building, Fifth
and' Main streets. The startled sleep
ers were confronted by a dense volume
of smoke as they sprang from their
beds and they dashed from the house
in all sorts of undressed attire. Thd
fire department made u quick response
to the call, and the flames were check
ed with an estimated loss of about
$2r,ii. The fire originated In the south
cast corner of the building, and
though the origin Is not known defin
itely It is supposed to have been caus
ed by a cigaret thrown down by a
young man. The flames forced their
way into the hall and across into the
adjoining room, and were burning
briskly when the timely arrival of the
fire; department cut them short. The
loss on the building is covered by in
Hoffman Trial Is On. Eddie Hof
man. slayer of John Esherg. is on trial
in the districr court for murder in the
first degree. The case was called at
10 o'clock yesterday morning, and the
entire day spent in an attempt to get a
jury. In anticipalion of the difficulty
over the selection of the jury a special
panel of 21 men was drawn at the
opening of court. Oeorge W. Scotr,
whose firm has charge of the defense,
has called to his assistance Attorney
"W. A. Foster, repined to be one of the
greatest criminal lawyers of the coun
try, a man whose client was the only
one of the prisoners in the famous
Cronin case in Chicago, to be found
not guilty. "With Attorney Scott, the
defense of Eddie Hoffman will be the
effort. of his life. He firmly believes
that Eddie fired the fatal shots in self
defense, and upon that ground will the
prisoner's defense be based. "Never in
my entire practice have I felt the
weight of my responsibility so neaviiy
upon me as in this case." said Mr.
Scott, fust before the case was called.
The prisoner was brought into court
and seated near his attorneys. His
face is somewhat fleshier than when
he was sent to jail, but it bears the
pallor of close confinement. He car
ried himself with an air of quiet indif
ference, but exhibited considerable
nervousness when the jurors were
ouestioned as to whether or not they
had prejudice against the infliction of
the death penalty.
Scaffold Knocked from Under Him.
John Dingier, a Davenporter, who is
employed in the boiler shops at Silvis,
met with a painful accident before he
had been on the payroll for half a day.
He was working with a boilermaker
on a scaffold when the traveling crane.
carrying an engine, came along and
knocked the scaffold down. Dingier
landed on the back of his head on a
sharp piece of steel on the forward
part of the engine and a hole of consid
erable size was made in his head. The
man who was working with him was
not hurt except for some burns from
a lamp he was thrown against.

after the trial of Bailey, the insurance
