Seven Masked Refers In At
tacking Party Early
Explosion Wakes Up . All
Memphis But Bandits
Special from United Press.)
Memphis, Term., FeD. 7. For the
second time within the la-at two
months. Rock Island Train No. 4 3
.was held up by bandits, early today,
near Hulburt, Ark. Seven men were
5n the party which attacked the train
but they secured only one package of
registered mail.
H. M. Beadle, mail clerk of the
train, escaped from the robbers and
Tan a mile to Hulburt, where he re
ported the holdup. He said two men
boarded the train at the railroad
crossing beyond the bridge just out
side of Hulburt and that three more
swung aboard at the levee, a little
further oh.
Two attempts were made to dyna
mite the big safe in the express car.
Both failed. Two heavy charges
were exploded but the safe was mere
ly turned over on its side and the ex
prew car badly damaged.
Later advices received here say that
tv .... , inn'fi both the express
safe and the mail car. The express
company is withholding all Informa
tion as to the amount taken. One
report states the amount may reach
$6 0,000. Two registered mail sacks
were taken.
Memphis was notified of the hold
up by a terrific explosion which shook
the windows in all houses near the
riverfront. A few minutes later a
second explosion was heard and the
flash that preceded it was the foun
dation for the rumor that the train
had been set on fire. This proved to
be incorrect.
Two of the robbers were riding
blind baggage when the train left
Memphis, members of the crew be
lieve. The train had reached a point
a. mile this side of Hulburt when two
bandits climbed over the tender of the
entire and ordered the engineer and
fireman to throw up their hands.
Others had taken care of the pas
sengers, and other members of the
crew. The fireman was told to cut
loose the first two cars and to run
the train back' toward Hulburt, After
backing a short distance, the engine
was ordered slowed up and two more
men who had been gr. irding the right
of way, boarded the train. Conductor
Peel had attempted to send a yard
engine back to Bridge Junction fo
help but the bandits on the right of
way made this impossible.
The robbers had their explosives
waiting on the levee and, stopping
the train, a charge was quickly place.!
under the safe. The charges failed
to open the safe and grabbing up reg
' istered mail racks, .the men fled.
Up to noon, today, no trace of the
robbers had been found.'

Edward Baskerville Of 479 Seaview Avenue
Completely Buried By Avalanche
Of Coal
Fellow Workers In A. McNeil & Sons Coal Yard Rush to
His Aid and Dig Him Out Apparently Little the
Worse for His Adventure and Refuses Services of the
Ambulance Corps.
Edward Baskerville, of 479 Seaview
avenue, working in a huge coal pit in
the yards of the A. McNeil & Sons
Coal company on Noble avenue, was
buried in an avalanche of coal which
slid down upon him while he was at
work shortly before noon today.
A score of other workers in the
yard saw the accident and rushed to
Baskerville's aid. The men shovelled
frantically, straining every muscle to
reach the buried man. Almost a
minute had passed when they un
earthed one of Raskervil'e's hands,
and then the ether. A rope and a
windlass were procured and fastened
to his hands and he was dragged out
of the coal.
The ambulance corps had been
summoned in the meantime, but tj

The ceremony took place in the
white marble hall of the Imperial Pal
ace. Only 287 representatives were
present, the other 110 members being
Socialists. As the Emperor arose' to
make his address, there was much
speculation as to what his real
thoughts were as he saw the great
gap that had been made at the recent
election. At the opening of the pre
vious Reichstag, there were only 53
Socialist absentees.
The Kaiser, however, made no ref
erence to the defeat of the govern

reference to the friendliness existing
between Germany and all the powers.
He declared that it was his purpose
to promote peace both at home and
abroad. In order to do this it was
necessary, however, to Germany to be
able at a'l times to protect her pos
sessions and her national honor. To
this end, the Kaiser urged his hearers
that it was their duty to support loy

He sturdily refused the services of

The accident to Baskerville was due
to the fact that one of the huge heap.
of coal had become undermined, but
was held in place by a frozen mass
at the bottom. The sunlight loosened
this underpinning today. Baskerville
was working about the pile and
chanced to tread upon the "key

buried him completely. The expert

J. M. Waterbury Believes
He Can Stay 30 Hours and

At press hour today. J. M. Water

player of the world was still pursuing
his weary way in the show window
of the M. Sonnenberg Piano company,
10K6 Main street in an effort to beat
hi own record. Mr. Waterburv holda
the world's record for continuous
piano playing which is 29 hours and
20 minutes. Mr. Waterbury wants to
make a new record of an even 30
hours if possible. This afternoon he
felt sure he would be able to perform
the stunt and possibly to play longer
than 30 hours.
Mr. Waterbury started playing at 6
o'clock la,ct night and has been tick
ling the keys continuously ever since.
When seen by a Farmer reporter this
afternoon he looked little the worse
for his long drill and expressed con
fidence of his ability to play at least
for thirty hours. Mr. Waterbury will
not leave the piano until absolutely

Special Statement By Miss
Ethel, Oldest Of The
(Special from United Press.)
London, Feb. 7 Today, the 100th
anniversary of the birth of Charles
Dickens, red geraniums, the favorite
flower of the dead author, were dis
played in the buttonholes of almost
every Londoner. Hundreds of wreaths
were placed on the novelist's tomb,
in Westminister Abbey. ' Secretary
Wilson, of the centenary committee,
announced, today, that, by nightfall,
$50,000 would probably have been con
tributed in England and A.nerica for
the use of the five married daugh
ters of Charles Dickens, Jr.. who are
in straightened circumstances.
London, Feb. 7 With the specter of
want driven from their door by con
tributions of the English-speaking
people, the five granddaughters of
Charles Dickens, the immortal autXjr,
today .expressed, through the United
Press their sincere gratitude for aid
extended to them by Americans.
Today is the hundredth anniversary
of "Old Boz's" birth and his eldest
granddaughter, Miss Ethel Dickens
prepared the following message to
(Copyrighted 1912 by the United Press)
On behalf of my sisters, Mary, Cecil,
Dorothy and Evelyn, and myself, I
wish to express to the American peo
ple my heartfelt thanks for their
generous subscriptions to the Centen
nary Fund. I hope that they under
stand that we accept it, not as charity
for there are so many other deserving
cases, but rather as the payment of a
debt which the Anglo-Saxons feel they
owe to Grandfather for his deathless
contributions to literature.
The value of Grandfather's works
were not fully realized during his life
and because there was no way of pro
tecting his writings from unscrupulous
publishers be was never adequately
remunerated. It was one of his fond
est hopes tnat he might realize enough
from his pen to leave a generous for
tune to his descendants but he failed.
He worked night and day and the re
sult every one knows.
When the Dickens Centenary" Com
mittee called on us and asked for
some suggestions regarding a fitting
memorial to Grandfather, we felt
that we were justified in. telling our
condition. The members of the com
mittee were deeply touched. The in
stantaneous response both from Eng
land and America brought tears of
gratitude to our eyes many times. I
understand they have raised $35,000 in
England and America's contribution
is expected to be almost as large. That
will supply -all the money we will re
quire for our needs. I do not intend
to give up work. Neither will two
of my sisters. Of course, the other
two are In such poor health that they
will probably never be able to do any
thing towards supporting themselves
again. Twenty years ago I started
my typewriting bureau. I had no
funds and it has been a hard battle.
It was only through overwork that I
was able to make a bare living. My
sisters, too. have earned their own liV'
ing by teaching and clerking. We are
all pretty much worn out by the
loner struggle put we nope soon to
arrange for a much needed rest.
Life certainly seems much bright
er now.
Boston, Feb. 7 Such a celebration
as has never before been tendered an
author was held in Boston, today, in

Mayor Tickled At
Prospect Of Tax
RateJDf 15 Mills
Mayor WilsiSh was gleeful at his
office this noon in anticipation of a
15 mill tax. "I feel confident from
the way the board of apportionment
has taken up its work" said he, "that
the tax rate will be kept down to 15
mills. We are not looking for parsi
mony. We want economy, nothing
more. With the diligence the board
is exercising in looking over the var
ious appropriations. I feel sure we'll
get results.
The mayor added that he expected
the various departments to facilitate
the work of the board of apportion
ment by bringing detailed statements
of the expenditures of their funds dur
ing the past year.
Invitations have been issued for the
Sea Side club ball which will be held
at the club house on State street.
Vflt 15. This is one of tne Dig social
'events of the season and arrange
ments will be made on tne usual ela
borate scale.
The first Cliarter of St. John's Lodge, No. 8, was dated February
12tlv 1762, and was granted for Fairfield County by It- W. George
Harrison, Provincial Grand Master of the State of New York.
Eleazer Hubbell, was named in the warrant as the first Wor
shipful Master, while these United States were but colonies of tluj
mother country. The first Communication was held February 15th
1762, at Samuel Wakelee's house on Division street (now Park Ave
nue,) situated just south of State Street.
The second communication was held at the house of Richard
The first regular Communication of St. John's odge, No. S, was
held at Richard Hub bell's house on Wednesday evening, February
24th, 1762.
This house stood on the road to Easton (Brooklawn avenue now
called) west of the Tod and south of the present Country club's"
Up to July 14th, 1762, eight Communications were held, when
the first election of Officers toook place. Eleazer HrbbeU being chos
en Mastter.
The Communications seem to have been kept up with great regu
larity though omissions of several months occurred during the waf
of the Revolution.
It is worthy of note that no allusion. Is made in the records to
either the Revolutionary War or that of 1812.
On December 8th, 1764, they removed to the sign of the "An
chor," also In Fairfield, Conn., but later they were back on State St.,
Bridgeport, Conn., but the house can not be located.
On June 24, 1789, they met at the house of Daniel Siblings. This
old house at that time a fine residence, still stands on the southwest
corner of Water and Union Streets.
On January 27th, 1790, the Lodge met at the house of William;
Peefc. This house stood on the north side of State street where the
Public Market now stands.
On December 14th, 1791, the Lodge met at the house of J. Lacey,
on the south side of State street. The house stood on the ground now
occupied by the Bayles brick block.
On December 12th, 1792, the Lodge met at the house of I. Bin
man, southwest corner of Water and Wall streets. This was in
wooden building then standing at that time- and occupied as a hotel,
and called "Washington Hotel."
At the May session of the Grand Lodge, F. & A. M., of Connecti
cut, 1809, by vote of St. John's Lodge, No. 3, was ordered to hold its
future Communications within one mile of the Fairfield Court House.
It is thought they met In a house then standing east of the present
Court House, Fairfield, Conn. This arrangement was continued until
the Annual Communication ot 1821, since which time without any
action of the Grand Lodge, the permanent location of St. John's
lodge No. S. has been in Bri dgeport, Conn.
In 18,4 7 we find St. John's Lodge, No. S, meeting in a building rm
State street, nearly opposite the A. W. Wallace Bakery, a school oc
cupying a part of the building. The Lodge owned a share in the
building which they sold. We find them the same year in the build
ing on the southwest corner of Water and State streets and still later,
in the building occupied by Pyle & Tomlinson, wholesale grocers, for
several years. - .. -
In 1855 the Lodge moved into the Sturdevant Block, - corner of
Main and Bank streets, where they did Masonic work 40 years, mov
ing into the present Temple on Broad street In 1895.
