What An American Woman Saw of a
Raid In London.
(New York Tlrflbs.)
A letter received by a woman Now
Yorker from her daughter portrays
vividly the horror of the writer over
a Zeppelin raid In London, which camo
very near to her. It says:
"I am really almost too tired to try
to write to you about the air raid of
night before last. In all. there wore
about thirty bombs dropped In our
Immediate vicinity. 1 was Just on the
point of going to bed when tho first
blast went off, about 9:20;
was out. and I had something to eat
at the Waldorf, and was nearly homo
at about 20 minutes before the at
"The first blast rocked the build
ing and sent the windows all flying.
It was like a hailstorm of broken
glass. I walked out of ray apartment
and started sneaking down the stairs.
I am on the sixth floor. It took me
ages to get down, stopping every few
minutes as the blasts wont off. Other
people wero crouching along, and tho
night porters had to run tho lifts to
> tho top for the servants, who wore
terrified, poor thlngR. One girl was
In her bath, and somebody wrapped
; a sheet around her. The staff woman
was 111 with pneumonia and had to
bo caj-rled down.
"On all of the floors I Baw G? W?
looking like a figure out of tho French
1 revolution. Her face was streaming
with blood. She stood up against one
of the walls, and we didn't speak to
each other. I saw her as though she
were In a dream. I learned after
wards that she was In her offlco, which
Is just over my bedroom, and was
thrown down and cut by the flying
"1 went on, down and down. There
seemed to me to bo no end of the
stone stairs, and I was afraid to hur
ry because they wero so slippery, and
the horrible explosions filled tho place
with dust and smoke and soot.
"There wasn't any noise except
Jrom explosions. Peop\o Just
crouched along, hugging the walls.
Bctweer times It was as still as
death; but those Intervals were very
short. I wasn't nearly as excited as
I was on the night of the other raids;
nor did I see any of the Zeppelins,
because they were directly over us.
"I went up stairs as soon as tho
Immediate bombardment was over to
get my coat and sec what damage
! had been done. Some of my windows
were blown out. and tho flro and,
I r.pccks of soot fiom the drawing room
hearth lay scattered all over every
thing. The fire was eating through
the soot that was smothering It, and
tho air was black with smoke. We
had to clear tho room with shovels.
The doors leading to the balcony had
? been sucked In and then out, drag
ging the curtains with them. I could
not wash myself because tho bath
room was a mass of broken glass, and
I spent the night looking like a chim
"I cannot begin to tell you of the
havoc that was wrought hore. There
was scarcely a window left In the
neighborhood. One policeman, pat
rolling the street, was blown to bits.
Two of the servants coming homo
found one of his feet lying In tho
roadway. The driver of an omnibus,
near the Waldorf, was blown Into such
a mass that what was left of him had
' to be covered with sand and shoveled
"At about 12 oclock Mrs. H. Mrs.
W. and myself plucked up enough
courage to walk out and found the
ambulance still working. Then wo
saw the explosive lights far up in the
sky from the south, and somebody
said the Zeppelins were coming back,
so we huurled home. They passed
very close on their way back, I be
lieve, but either their ammunition
had given out or they were boing
pursued by Rrltlsh airmen.
"Our roof was covered with shrap
nel, and in Mrs. W's. room, where
everything was whirled about, a big
piece had blown into the window and
reposed in her pincushion. One bomb
fell directly In front of us, so close
that ( could toss a ball to the spot
from my balcony window, and three
others just behind, one of them very
near. They were shrapnel bombs,
which means that when they explode
the shrapnel" flies in every direc
tion, and no one who Isn't under cov
er can' miss being killed or wounded."
LINE WILL OPEN
SEATTLE. Desc. 31.?Among the
important plans of the Pacific Steam
ship Company for the New Year is
the establishment of a general office
at Chicago. This is considered a rad
ical move on the part of tho big ship
ping corporation, as it never had an
exclusive representative In either tho
East or the Middle West. It has been
the plan in the past to have agents
who also represented other steamship
lines or railroads to look after the
company's business on the per cent
Officials of the line Thursday an
nounced that W. M. Cllnc, traveling
freight and passenger agent at Los
Angeles had been appointed general
agent at Chicago, effective after Jan.
. Mr. Cllhe will look after all East
ern and Middle West business. He
has been in the employ of the Pacific
Coast Steamship Company for the
past fifteen years and is considered a
very competent traffic man.
The Pacific Coast Steamship com
pany has been enjoylug a largo patro
nage from the residents of tho East
and Middle West, especially tourists,
who have made the cruise to South
eastern Alaska. Although its book
ing agencies in the East will be re
tained, Mr. CHne will be the com
pany's representative in all traffic
It is also announced that C. C.
Holmes, who has been chief clerk to
J. W. Smith, general auditor of the
Pacific Coast Company, in charge of
passenger accounts, has been appoint
ed general auditor of the company.
The appointment is effective January

Deputy Manning. Later Mr. Mllwee
was apprehended and released on
Subsequently Mr. Mllwee was re

Wilson, by Commissioner Marshall.
Tho general facts of the case grew
out of judgment socured by Mrs. Wil
son in her caso against George Moore.
Mrs. Wilson secured judgment against
Moore for services to the amount of
$45.75. Tho money was collected by
Mr. Mllweo but according to Mrs.
Wilson, she was unable to secure this
until she took action.
The arrest was based oir section
1931 of the Criminal Codo, which says
"That If any person being a banker,
broker, merchant, attorney or agent,
and being Intrusted with the property
of another, shall, by any means, with
intent to defraud, convert the Bame, or
portion thereof, to his own use. or
benefit, or to the benefit of another
not entitled to, such person upon
conviction thereof, shall be punished
by Imprisonment In the county jail
not loss than three months nor more
than one year, or by fine not less
than fifty nor more than ono - thou
United StatCB Commissioner Mar
shall, after having all of the facts in
the case presented, released Mr. Mll
wee, acting upon authority of sec
tion 2362 which provides that "when
n defendant is held to answer on a
charge of misdemeanor, for which the
person injured by the act constitut
ing the crime has a remedy by a civ
il action, the crime may be compound
ed as provided in section 2363.
The latter section says that if the
court secures Information that tho
injured has received satisfaction for
tho Injury, the court may in its dis
cretion, on payment of costs and ex
penses Incurred, order all further
proceedings to bo stayed.
United States Commissioner Mar
shall was possessed of the facts and
Milwee released. Quietly he arranged
his local affairs, and Mr. Milwee took
passage on tho Alameda for Cordova.
