LITTLE CHIP SAVES
He Was Hero at Asbury Satur day Afternoon HER NAME NOT GIVEN Supposed to Be Pittsburg Woman of Wealth—Wore Beautiful Bathing Suit of Silk—Chip Would Not Talk. Little Chip, as a hero at the seashore, saving a woman In a silk bathing suit. That is the latest part of the diminutive comedian, who has amused Birmingham theatregoers a hundred time. The role is real this time and there was no stage acting about it. He ’had a life and death struggle with the waves rescu ing a woman much larger than he is. Following is the story of the rescue at Asbury Park Saturday as sent in a spe cial: The most thrilling rescue of the sea eon was made here this afternoon when a lady of fine but generous figure was eaved from certain death through the courage and heroism of Little Chip, the •tar of the Wonderland company, which Is now rehearsing for the coming season. The lady, who refused positively to give her name, had attracted considerable notice by her ability as a swimmer, and had gone far out beyond the breakers, where her strong strokes seemed to Indi cate that she was perfectly at home in the Water. So far out was this modern Aphrodite that she was quite alone when the watchers on the beach suddenly noticed that she was making signals of distress. The alarm was given but there were no swimmers who had sufficient confidence to go out so far for the making of a rescue. Among the bathers was "Little Chip," a well-known but diminutive actor, who has made many friends both on account of his personality and his professional ability as a fun maker. While this star comedian Is very short, and weighs only 99 pounds, he is of stocky huild and an all-round athlete. The moment Little Chip learned of the danger of the fair bather he also hurried far out beyond the breakers. At once he realizd that fh lady Was In great peril, and as he forged his way toward her with strong, steady strokes, he called to her that as sistance was at hand. Eeven as he did so, It was evident that It was only with the greatest difficulty that she was able to keep above water. While in reality it was only a few mo ments until Little Chip reached her side, to the waiting thousands on the beach who watched and waited in the silence that speaks of an agony of suspense, It seemed an eternity. Just as they saw the small figure of the rescuer reach the large and handsome figure of the Woman tn peril, a great cheer broke the silence, which rverberated to the very limits of Clean Grove, New Dangers Attended Rescue. But the dangers attending the rescue seemed just begun. To the watchers It was evident that the dlndnutiv swtm mr'faced an awful proposition, for the woman w.as more than twice his Rize, as after the rescue she admitted to 220 pounds, while site refused tn divulge her name. But the game rescuer was then seen to change his direction and again Start for the shore. Ah he did so, the fair swimmer placed her hand upon his shoulder and the long tow to the beach Was hegun. It Was then seen that either because of the strong undertow or for some olher reason, the game rescuer Was making hut a snail's progress against the terrible obstacles. Again sup pressed groans rose fforn the thousands of watchers. Then, to add to the horrors of the situation, It was seen that the woman, either through exhaustion or hopelessness, dropped her arm from the shoulder of little Chip. Evei Jne be lieved that her death was a crtalntly, when the 99-pound athlete was seen to again turn around, reach for the woman and grasp her by the hair. Again he be gan his brave struggle against fearful odds, and while his progress Was slow and attended with awful agony of phys ical effort, the terrible raco with death was continued until the bathers, making a life line by holding hands, were able to grasp the exhausted swimmer and his burden, and the anxiety was over. When the rescuer and the rescued were brought upon the hard sands of the Mach, both« were unconscious from ex haustion, although little Chip soon re covered and insisted on hurrying away ratHer than receive the congratulations and praise of the onlookers, modestly in sisting that any one would have done the same tlllhg, and that he happened to be the nearest to the unfortunate swimmer. He even refused to wait until the res cued had recoverd consciousnss, know ing that she had been placed in good hands. . Rlttsburg Society Women. The lady Is believed to be a prominent member of the society set of Pittsburg. While she has only been here a few days, she has a magnificent suite of rooms at one of the most-exclusive hotels, a reti nue of maids arid servants and enjoys a reputation as a clever motor driver and whip, every morning finding her hand ling a tandem with the skill of an ex pert. After being .rcsuselated by means of artificial respiration, she stated that she had been seized with cramp and had given up all hope when she saw some one start to her rescue. •'As he drew nearer,” she said, "X saw that he was only a little hoy and dgaln I lost all hope. Hut small as he was, he was one of the strongest swimmers I have ever seen and—well, all I want to know Is his name and where I can find him.” When told that It was Little Chip, she ■aid nothing, but It Is believed that the EAST LAKE CASINO ALL THIS WEEK.

Little Chip, when seen later, refused to talk of the rescue, fur ther than to say that he had had many engagements in his theatrical life, in cluding months of one-night stands, but he was never as happy in closing an en gagement as he had been when that first hand of the life-line told him that his watery tour was ended.

JOHN PAUL JONES CHALLENGED DUEL INVITED .LIEUTENANT PARKER OF ROYAL NAVY TO A COMBAT ON CRANEY ISLAND NEAR JAMESTOWN IN 1774. Norfolk, Va., August 12.—(Special.)— Near Norfolk, \et., within sight of Sewell’s Point, where next year will be held the Jamestown Tar-Centennial exposition commemorating the birth of the nation at Jamestown In 1607, Is Craney Island, famous as the scene of a severe British repulse in the war of 1812, and still earlier as a favorite dueling ground of Virginia gentlemen. John Paul Jones, America’s great sea-flghter, on several occasions proposed to fight out differences of opin ion on the Island. For some reason, how eve*. none of his challenges were ac cepted. The last occasion upon whlcsh Admiral Jones Invited any one to meet him on Craney Island, according to the provisions of the knightly code, was in connection with his challenge of Lieutenant Parker of the Royal navy in 1774. On hfs way hack from a short trip to his plantation on the.bank of the Rappa hannock, Jones had stopped for a few days In Norfolk. He was invited to a ball In the city and found several officers of the Royal navy In attendance. Among them was Lieutenant Parker, a relative of Admiral Sir Peter Parker, who after ward attacked Fort Moultrie, off Char leston. ' Between the dances the gentlemen dls ! cussed the probabilities of a rupture with England on account of the provisions of the stamp act. In the course of discussion Lieutenant Parker made a disparaging re mark concerning the women of Virginia. Jones promptly knocked him down. Par ker was dragged away by his friends. Jones retired to a tavern and through his friend. Granville Hurst, sent word to Parker that lie would gladly meet him with pistols at ten paces on Craney Is land, at the lieutenant's convenience. No answer to this communication was I received and Jones, though eager to fight. | had to be satisfied with the punishment ' he had already administered to Parker. It Is said that the British officers of the little squadron to which Parker was at tached. to a man. refused to act as his second in the affair, declaring that he had behaved disgracefully and deserved the treatment he had received at the hands or Jones. Parker soon afterward left Nor folk. The ladles of Virginia made a hero of Jones for the prompt manner In which lie had taken up the lieutenant’s remark. This was the last occasion Jones ever figured in any way in this country as a duelist. The next year he was busy mak ing preparations to defend the honor of his adopted country with gun powder and cannon ball. Tn pursuing this object Jones shortly after the Parker Incident visited the French Frigate La Terpsichore in Norfolk harbor and was furnished by Prince Philip Joseph. Duke of Chartres, with plans of the frigate. From these plans was built the ship Alliance, which was with him in his battle with the Scranls. WILL RELIEVE CONGESTION.

W. J. GORDON, Warden. E, V, DEBS SPEAKS HI NEW DECATUR Explains Principles of Socialism to Four Hundred FEW LADIES ATTEND Speaks Hopefully of the Future Pros pects of the Movement—Says So cialism is Not Under stood. New Decatur. August 12.—(Special.)—Eu gene V. Debs, socialist and labor leader, spoke here last night to an audience of about 400, on the subject of socialism- His speech was listened to with marked at tention and he was often Interrupted by applause. There were but few ladies in the audience, and most of the men who heard him were mechanics in the Louis ville and Nashville railroads shops, though there were a few business and profes sional men In the audience. Mr. Debs is a rapid speaker and at times his ut | terances came so fast that it was almost impossible .to follow him. "The history of the human race," said Mr. Debs, “Is one long story of class | struggles, in which the few have ruled \ the many; the few have worn the purple j of power and the many have labored as I their slaves. [ will not appeal to your prejudice, hate or passion, but will ad dress myself to your reason. It required many thousand years to bring man to his present progress and civilization. Material Progress. “The last century and a half has seen ! more material progress than all the past ages. All this earth is a vast mass of raw material. If any man, woman or child Is not properly housed It Is not due to the Creator, but to the system un der which we live. The trouble of the majority of people they do not think, they drift.” He then spoke at length on the evolu tion of the industrial world and drew some glowing pictures along the way. “Fudallsm,’’ he said, “was overthrown, but the system under which we now live evolved from it, and our present system Is now nearing its close. A new principle has come to the front; in place of compe tition it is co-operation. On one hand it is wealth and luxury and on the other ignorance and crime and want on ac count of our social system. Industry in every form Is organizing and competition is being eliminated as a result. Thus small business is being squeezed out. This Is the cause of trusts. In the next few years we will have a trust of trusts, the name of which has not as yet been coined. “The working class. Ignorant as they are, have struggled all through their ex istence, from barbarians they became slaves and slaves became serfs. Not Understood. “Socialism is not understood. It does not mean the taking away from the in dustrious and giving to the worthless; it is a science; It points our that the tool is ! a social tool, that it must be socially | made. The working class constitute three [ fourths of the population, their wages I will buy but one-sixth of what they pro | duce. The remainder of the population : cannot consume the rest, so we export it, j hut every other nation is doing this. Then j comes over-production apd a period of de | pression follows Just as night foflows day. Under our present s/stem we are bound ' to have nn over-production; this causes ! panics. During the past thirty years we [ have had five panics. The first was in I 1873 and at this period the tramp was j created. There arc in the United Stn#\s I one million products of this system. The vicious environments produce bad men and | bad women.” He then said that he could ! go to Chicago, where Is to be found every j phase of society In the world, and that ! he could take one hundred babes from j the slums, from the home of the mlllion j alre and refined and cultured, from the j brothels and other places and take them j out Into the country where their environ ments would he of the best and return i them at the age of eighteen and that he would defy any man to say which camq from the slum and which from the pal ace. which from the home of culture and which from the brothel. “What we socialists want ts the right kind of environments. We must have so cialism and human nature will take care of Itself. When our economical Interests become equal then we will work side by side In harmony. We are not yet pre pared for socialism, but we arc rapidly nearing It. Socialism is the perfection of government. Tt proposes social ownership of those things that are socially used by the people. Why should a capitalist own that which all of us use?” Mr. Debs remained in the city last night, the guest of A. E. Isaac. He went east this morning on the Southern railroad. There are quite a number of socialists in this city. There were sixty-four votes polled for Debs at the last presidential election In New Decatur alone. Socialists hpre snv that there are now more than twice that amount of socialist votes In New Decatur, DR. Y. E.
