friends, after she had eloped with him to
Et. Louts to be married.
The couple arrived at the station In the

Immediately. They eloped, they said, be
cause X.r. Millard would not consent to his
daughter's marriage. Inasmuch as she Is
only 17 years old. He told Richardson as
much when the young man called on him
and asked him for the hand of his daugh
ter. When the couple learned a few days ago
that an excursion would be sien on tne
Yandalli road from Effingham to St. Iuls
they completed their preparations for the
elopement. Everything went smoothly un
til Miss Millard thought that her parents
would bo heartbroken over her action.
Thtn shs decided that perhaps she had bet
ter postpone the ceremony for a year or
Richardson thought otherwise, and he
tried to argue the girl out of her notion.
Tho argument resulted in a quarrel and
they parted in anger. The girl left the
Ftatiou with several friends, and Richard
Eon stayed behind. He said that he thought
the girl would again change her mind and
decide to be married after all.

Smith Because She Had Ridden
on a Transit Car.
He Left His Post of Duty and
Chased the Assailants Police
3Iake Two Arrests in
the Case.
Miss Josephine Smith of Xo. 21C6 Pen-ose
street, 16 years old, was assaulted by a
crowd or boys at Twentieth and Penrose
streets on Tuesday evening and her thlrt
waist torn from her body because she had
ridden en a St. Louis Transit Company car.
Though she was not injured, tho s;are
was sufficient to put her to bed.
Mis-s Smith went heme after the attack
and no report was made of the occurrence
until yesterday morning, when Charles E.
Smith, conductor of tho car, told the police
that a young lady had been assaulted by
a crowd for riding on a car. The con
ductor said he chased the boys for more
than a block, but was unablo to catch
any of them.
Captain Phillips of tho Sixth District
went to see Smith, and ascertained that
It was his daughter who had been set
upon. Special officers were sent to ceo
her and the gave descriptions of tho boys
which led to the arrest of Harry Pohlo of
Xo. 3301 North Twenty-first street, Harry
Franz of Xo. 2114 Penrose street, William
Halm of Xo. 2222 Penrose street, Dan His-
ton of Xo. 2021 Penrose street, Carl Green
lield of Xo. 4320 Florissant avenue and Ar
thur Kruter of Xo. 2U14- Penrose street. The
boys range from 13 to IS years old, and live
with their Tarents. Miss Sraitn positively
identified them. On account of their
ago they will not be prosecuted for assault
and battery, but will be sent to the police
court charged with disturbing tho peace.
Miss Smith had been riding on her fa
thei's car and was on her way home when
the assault occurred. As she reached the
sidewalk she was approached by lour or
live boys who called her "scab" and de
manded to know whv iiie had ridden on a
"scab" car. At first she thought they were
Jesting, and she laughed at them, but she
lound that they were in earnest. One of
the boy.s made a grab at her new shirt
waist and lore a rent In It.
"lear it off of her!" cried one. In less
than a minute they had stripped her of her
shiit waist and would have torn olf all
her clotnes hud it not been tor her father,
who, seeing her pKght, leaped from his car
and ran to her assistance. When tho boys
taw him coming tttey lied.
It is said that another woman was as
saulted, but the police were unable to
learnthe particulars yesterday.

Mrs. Clementine Freeman of Xo. 111S South
Fourth street, was abducted early yester
day morning as ho was entering a bakery
at Xo. 1022 South Fourth street, where ho
had been sent by his mother.
The abductor Was a tall, heavy-Get man,
with a black mustache and black hair, who
was fashionably appareled. It Is alleged by
the mother of tho boy that the abductor is
the child's father, Clark Freeman, from
whom she has been separated seven, years,
and wlio made two previous attempts to
spirit away her children. Tho man seized
the lad about the waist, and, desplto the
boy's frantic struggles and screams for

Men Arrested in Connection With
Olive Street Explosion Arraigned
Two Who Confessed Have
2sTo Attorney.
Detectives Harrington, Schmidt and
Woodllng succeeded yesterday in securing
two more identifications of Maurice Bi en-
nan and Fred Norllnvay, who are held at
tho Four Courts rharged with conspiracy
and dynamiting street car tracks.
Conductor Stevo Swan and Motorman
Emll Jansen of car No. 2G1 of the South
western lino Identified Brennan and Xorth
way aa the two men who dynamited their
car last Thursday night. Jansen said ho
was going north on Seventh street, ap
proaching Pestalozzl street, when ho saw
two men cross over and stoop at the car
tracks, as if they were placing something
on tho rail. He made an effort to stop his
car, but before it came to a standstill, thcio
was an explosion, which cracked the front
wheels, broke the windows In the car and
blew a largo hole through the floor.
Jansen got down to Investigate and found
that ho had stopped his car within a foot
of another stick of dynamite which would
undoubtedly have been exploded had he not
slowed down. Jansen said he got a good
look at the men and he was certain that
they were Brennan and Xorthway. Conduc
tor Swan was equally positive. Application
will be made to-day by Judge Krum for
warrants charging thera with obstructing
the car tracks.
Maurice Brennan was Identified as ono of
the men on tho scene when car Xo. 5 of
the Southern Electric line was blown up In
front of 1014 Arsenal street on tho night of
July 27. Edward Davidson, conductor of
tho car, was thrown down by the force of
tho explosion. Ah soon as he regained his
feet he said a man, whom he identified as
Brennan, stepped up on the back platlorm
und said: " you, 1 did not get you tliU
time, but I will get you next time."
Brennan and Xorthway declared that they
had nothing to do with either explosion.
Schwartz. Brennan, Xorthway and
Whalen were arraigned in the Court of
Criminal Correction yesterday morning to
answer the charges preferred against tnem
on Monday. All of them entered pleas ot
"not guilty" and their cases were set for
trial on August 27. AVhalen was represented
by Judge Ji A. Xoonan and Schwartz by
Attorney E. F. Cunningham, who has been
retained by the strikers to light their cases
In court. Brennan and Xortnway were not
represented. Attorney Cunningham s,aid
that Brennan and Xorthway wire not in
good standing with the union and would re
ceive no support trom that source.
"The union will defend Schwartz, but they
do -not approve the action of Brennan and
"Does confessing to their guilt bar them
from assistance from the union?" was
"I am told they were In bad standing bo
fore the dynamiting," he replied. Xorth
way and Brennan declared that they were
not In bad standing and they are confident
ly expecting help from tho union.
Judge Clark fixed bond In all the cases
at J1.O0O. Xone of the defendants were re
leased yesterday.
Assistant City Attorney Stanton Issued a
police court summons against Mrs. Mary
Schwartz, mother of the man charged with
dynamiting, and Mrs. Mary Connollv,
the police two hours later. She said she
thought her husband could be located at
Xo. nil Arabella street, Xew Orleans. She
declared that ho had deserted her and had,
therefore, no claim to the children. She
said he had tried to get a divorce and failed,
some time ago. "
Mrs. Freeman blames all her misfortunes
on a Polish girl, who, she says, gained the
affections of her husband seven years ago
eloped with him to Xew Orleans, leaving
her to eke out, as a dressmaker, a meager
living for her three children.
"I was married sixteen years ago," said
Mrs. Freeman. "Our domestic life was
peaceful until this girl came between us.
My husband had a good position as sta
tionary engineer in Pocock's can factory at
Second street and Franklin avenue.
"One day a,-friend of mine came to mo
and said my husband was .jallln-j on the
Polish girl and that he had Uee.i seen wiih
her at all hours of the night. I cid not be
lieve this at first, but about a month laier
I went to the girl's home, at Tw-.-lftn i-nd

husband left me, leaving no word of faio
well to me or his children. I s.oon leund
out that the girl was gone also, and I bes
pected they were together.

Mrs. Hicklyn Told the Coroner
That Burns Did Not Fire
the Fatal Shot.
Burns Is Held on This Verdict, and
the Woman Is Also a Pris
oner Pending Mr. John
son's Action.
If Dennis Burns, who shot and killed Wil
liam Dickson in hl3 homo at Xo. i)33 Collins
street Tuesday, is saved from prosecution
it will bo due to tho efforts of Mrs. May
Hicklyn, the mother of tho dead boy.
At tho Coroner's inquest yesterday she
departed from her original statement and
told a story which would tend to show that
Burns was innocent of intent to kill her
Desplto the change, a Coroner's jury held
Burns on a verdict of felonious homicide.
Burns was a boarder at the Hicklyn
home, and, according to Mrs. Hlcklyn'3
original statement, he owed her $30. In the
last few days he had given her J2, but re
turned to her several times Tuesday to get
money to buy drink. Twice she gave him
the money, but tho third time she said aha
retused, and he grabbed her by tho wrlats
to throw her down. Her right arm was
rore from burns, and 8he struggled to
free it.
As she fell back, having loosened her
self from hj grasp, she said her hand fell
on her revolver, which sho kept under her
bed. As Burns rushed at her again she
said she shot at h!m, but missed him and
he took the revolver away from her. Sho
then seized a butcher knife and cut him
on the wrist. At this ho fired at her, sho
said, but tho bullet missed her and struck
her son, William Dickson, an invalid, who
got up from bed to defend her.
At the Inquest yesterday she said that she
threw tho revolver to the iloor, and it was
exploded, the ball striking her son. Coro
ner Lloyd questioned her at some length
on this point, and she became confused,
malting several contacting statements.
When reminded of her fnrmpr stntpmonf
she said that she and Burns were scuffling
for the possession of the revolver, when
it fell to tho lloor and w,as discharged.
Mrs. Hicklyn and Burns were taken back
to tho Fourth District Police Station, where
they were locked up to await the action of
Assistant I'rosecutlng Attorney Johnson.
Burns has been a boarder at the Hicklyn
home for several years.

Mr. Yarrelmann Wants to Expend
?1,500,000 Within Sis Months.
If property owners are willing. Street
Commisrioner Varrelmann desires to recon
struct twenty miles of street at a cost of
J1.5CO.C0O within the next six months. He
said yesterday that plats would be pre-
Sircd and the proposition presented to the
oard of Puollc improvements, so that
hearings may be held during vacation and
the ordinances submitted to the Municipal
Assembly when it reconvenes on October 9.
The streets which he hopes to Improve
are those In the district lying between Cass
and Chouteau avenues, tho Levee and
Grand avenue; he is thinking of extending
the limit as far as Park avenue on the
couth, but has not positively determined as
to that.
Granite would be used downtown and
brick or apphalt In the residence districts,
according to the wishes of property owners.
Granite construction costs from 6 to 13
per foot, brick paving about h and asphalt
about the same as granite. In order to do
the work It is necessary to have the con
sent of property owners, who must bear
the expense. So far about 90 per cent of
the property owners have objected to ex
tensive street improvements In various sec
tions of the citv. and if the same average
is maintained Mr. Varrelmann cannot do
the work without a two-thirds vote of the
Municipal Assembly.
Ordinances have been passed to pave
Union boulevard, from Delmar boulevard to
Easton tvenu; to lay granite In Jefferson
avenue, from Washington avenue to Mar-
Ket street, ana to reconsirun Lombard
street with brick from Broadway to Fourth
street. This work, which will cost about
$100,000, will be started this month, or early
In September.
