ONE MAN THE INNOCENT CAUSE OF A RIOT CALL. i FXriTF.-MIvN'T TX TFTE U2CI0X TKl'STCOKHIDOi;. K. I.. Anderson Had No Idea ITe. Wa" Causinp; So Much Com motion His Explanation. The even tenor of things in the lobby ot the Fnlon Trust building was Interrupted I nt the busiest hour yesterday afternoon by i tho sudden appearance of r cumber of I bin, blue-coated policemen, who had coma ' from tho Four Courts In answer to a rloi I i. 'ill. which had been telephoned in from the oflb-e structure Tho lobby was crowded when the patrol wagon drove up, and when I tho people inside saw- the policemen rus1! , In they believed that something excllin.; . was. about to hapten. The casual onlookers took rifuge In tho elevators, on tho stal.s and anywhere else whero they believed tho rxiected bullets would not rach them. The squad was met by a young man, who. said that ho was superintendent of tho bti'Idirg. He pointed with a dramatic mo tion to the figure, of a man who was leaning . against one of the heaters at the side if j tho lobby and appeared to be; so sleepy that I he did not observo what was going on I atound him. "That is the man! That'K himl There he is there! Hlght over there!" "Who is over there? What Is it, and what was the alarm turned In for?" "That's it. That is the cause right over t there." said tho joung man. "Do you want that man arrested?" asked, the oflieer. "Oh. no. I only want hlra taken out of the building." Hy this time Officer Dan Maloney, who stands on the corner of Seventh and Ollvo streets, tiad entered the building and Joined the other policemen. He asked the super Inttndtnt why he had not called htm In stead of teli phoning for i patrol wagon. The n ply was that no had only telephoned for an officer. The v-dces ot the speakers, aroup.il the man who was leaning on lha heater, and he seemed to take a lively in terest in the latter part of the conversa tion. "If the gentleman wanted me to leave his building, why did he jot tell me so? I wa simply warming my overcoat on the steam pipes and would have departed willingly." "Well. I think I did t Il you tJ go once." said the ouug ni..n. "and I disliked usin vio'en. e ' "Didn't want to use violets?" said tho sleepy man. "Well, it 1? a gxd thing you didn't. I don't like violets." The joung man explained that ho was afraid the fellow had a revolver in his pocket, because he had his hand thrust in to it. Maloney searched him, but found n thing. After the officers had warned thei superintendent to be Iss free with the riot tall in future they got into tbe patrol wagon and drove away. The man who hid bee-n the cause of th excitement follow ed Oflieer M Money out of the building and gave his name as E L. Anderson, liv Ing at No. 3121 DeKalb street. He said that he had engaged In an en eounter a short time before the officer arrived with a man named Jickson. This man, he said, had used him taiher rouga 1). anil it was with the intention of squar ing accounts that he was starling in tho lobby, patiently w<tng for Jackon to ap pear. Anderson did not know Jackson's first name, but said some friend had Introduced the in in a saloon The argument which, caused the passage at jnrs was as to tho respective meTits of the Hritish snd Boer curses,. Anderson maintained that thn lioers were in the right, and was wllllnif to thump an) on- who ,,id they wero not. Jackson declared In favor cf the Brlti'h and .ltd the only thumping whl;h was done Malen.y iidv'sed Anderson to go homo and. If I-.e had a grievance.to make appllci tlm for a police summons against the man who had offereieel him.
