BANDITS HOLD UP
TROLLEY; GET $1800
Seattle Pay-as-You-Enter Car Is
Soft Picking for Knights
of the Road
RUN ELECTRIC INTO A SHED
$1250 in Money and Jewelry
Taken from Liquor Dealer
at Gun's Point
[Associated Press]
SEATTLE, Wash., May 12.—A "pay
as-you-enter" car on the South Pork
line was held up by three highwaymen
at 1 o'cock this morning and the car
crew and twenty passengers, all men,
robbed of $1800 In money and valu
ables. The robbers ran the car lome
distance after completing tho search of
their victims and left it near the Nor
thern Pacific freight yards. No trace
of them has been found.
The highwaymen boarded the car in
the business section and remained in
thnlr |Mti until it rr>aeh.irl th» sinnVnrw.
avonue trestle, where the conductor got
off to ring In at headquarters. He
faced a revolver when he boarded the
car again and stopped the car.
The passengers were lined up and
searched, then ordered off the car, the
robbers assuring them repeatedly that
the first man to resist would be killed.
One of the robbers stepped to the
controller and ran the car to the
freight sheds, where It was abandoned.
The police believe the robbers were
the same men who held up an Alki
Point car at almost tho same place
several weeks ago. The men answer
the description and employed a similar
method in each case. Theye were fa
miliar with the operation of the cars
and chose a time when the conductor
was obliged to leave the car. They
also selected, a car on which saloon
keepers were returning home with the
proceeds of their night sales.
The heaviest loser was B. G. Dary,
a liquor dealer who yielded $1250 in
money and Jewelry. Howard Mc-
Shane surrendered $270 and Herman
Schroder gave up $100.
One passenger, when searched was
found to have three loaded pistols in
his pockets, as though he had been
preparing against the holdup. Each of
the robbers took part in the search,
always keeping a pistol pointed at
the victims. .* . .
8 STUDENTS DROWN
WHEN BOAT SINKS
Six Girls Helpless as Boys Swim
Ashore—One Youth Acts
Part of Hero
WILKBSBARRE, Pa., May 12.—
Eight high school students, six girls
and two boys, lost their lives today
while boating on the paper mill dam
at Huntington mills, about twenty
miles below this city.
The dead:
MAUD SUTLJFFE, 17, of Townllne.
CAROLINE KOONS, 16, Harvoy
ville.
RUTH BONHAM, 18, Townline.
ORIS DAVENPORT, 16, Watertown.
KACHAEL THOMPSON, 16, Town
Hill.
MADELINE GOOD, 17, Watertown.
ROBERT MINNICH, 18, Koonaville.
HAY BODSON, 17, Fairmont.
Twelve students of the Huntington
high school Moored two boata at the
noon hour and* started for a row. The
dam is nearly half a mile wide and
when the two craft had reached the
center it was noticed one of them had
sprung a leak. The two boats then
were pulled together by the young
men in the party and an effort made
to transfer the girls from the leaking
boat to the safer one. The last one
of the party had scarcely set foot in
the boat when it began to sink.
The Rirls were helpless and the boys,
who, with the exception of Bodson,
were expert swimmers, struck out for
the shore, which they reached in
safety.
"Minnich had no sooner pained the
bank than he noticed two girls clinging
to the sinking boat. He daihed into
the water and swam swiftly to the
water-filled boat. The girls were
dinging to the boat, the others having
gone down.
Seizing Miss Davenport, Minnich
again started for the shore but the
exertion was too much for the lad and
the tWO went down together within a
stone's threw from the bank.
As soon as the accident became
known grappling parties began search
for the bodies. All wore recovered.
EXPLOSION ENTOMBS 137
MINERS; ONLY 4 ESCAPE
Colliery Warning Fails to Save
Workers—Workings Are
All in Flames •
MANCHESTER, Eng., May 12.—One
hundred and thirty-seven miners
lost their lives today in an ex
plosion in the Wellington coal mine at
White Haven. Hescue parties suc
ceeded in saving four men, but fire has
brokpn out in the workings, leaving
practically no hope for those still en
tombed.
Throughout the day the rescue par
ties made considerable progress in the
mine, but their work was stopped to
night by the collapse of the roof.
A curious fact > is that a colliery
warning was published in many of the
newspapers in the mining districts of
the kingdom yesterday to the effei t
that unusually hitfli barometric condi
tions made Hie damp explosions prob
able, and that all underground workers
should be on the alert. The barometer
reached its highest reading in the
White Haven district.
King George tonight sent a mossnge
of sympathy to the owners of the col
liery.
it a man can master tho language
of tennis, golf and football he ought
to have brains enough to master every
other tongue.

Joke to Flight, and One
Falls Under Car
CHICAGO, May 12.—A fake •"badger"
fight, held in the basement of a sa
loon in West Madiaon street Tuesday
night, was the indirect cause of prob
able fatal injuries suffered by Edward
Maildox, who rushed from the place
and ran into a rapidly moving street
car. He was struck by the car, re
ceiving internal injuries.
Maddox was one of the uninitiated,
and when he entered the saloon was
told that a real "badger fight" was to
be held unknown to the police. He
was asked to act as referee.
A dozen others equally Ignorant were
also chosen to decide the winner be
tween the "badger" and a ferocious
looking bulldog.
When the dog was led into the base
ment near the cage-supposed to con
tain a badger, the lights were turned
low As the cage door was opened
to release the "badger" a shot was
fired and the cry of "police* caused
a panic among those unacquainted
with the program.
Maddox, with his coat turned Inside
out to distinguish him as referee, was
the most frightened man In the crowd
as he fled from the place. As he
reached the street he failed to notice
tlir car approaching at full speed and
ran in front of It.

THEODORE SUMMERUND
MUST HAVE PICKED 'EM
htot Vests and Screaming Ties
Are Shown in a London
Exhibition
LONDON, May 12. Men are about to
bloom like the flowers In spring in
variegated colors of gorgeous hue.
That is the one startling and sensa
tional fact revealed by the clothing
and drapery exhibition at the Agri
cultural hall.
Not to be outdone by the "Chante
cler" craze, men, It seems, are about
to don canary waistcoats of brightest
yellow; purple, peacock blue and old
gold ties; socks of any color of which
the poets dream; lilac braces, and soft
shirts of many stripes.
This is but an abridged catalogue of
th<» rnlnp schemes presented s.t the ex
hibition, In addition to canary waist
coats there are light green, plum, sal
mon-pink and tawny port waists, to
suit every complexion and tempera
ment.
As yet there is a tendency to con
ceal some part of this bright and beau
tiful raiment, for the outer garments
have not yet burst forth into ecstatic
color harmonies. But in the privacy
of the dressing room the man may
revel in a wealth and riot of color.
Geniuses have designed dressing gowns
for him which would look gay at a
fancy dress ball, and add splendor to
a carnival. Not the emperor of Japan
could be more gorgeously arrayed in his
imperial kimono than a modern bache
lor in one of these latest lounge suits.
In bed his very nightclothes would
grow warm at the color of the pajamas
in which his fancy may roam. He
may lie in silks like a fairy prince.
When he plunges to his bath in the
morning he may appear like a beauti
ful butterfly released from its chry
s'iiis ' *
The women's section of the exhibi
tion, beautiful and interesting as it is,
has been put Into the shade by the
men's haberdashery. The delicate
shades of women's dresses, the dainti
ness of their laces and linens, are sim
blicity Itself when compared to the
vivid tints of those socks and scarves
and articles of underwear in which
men are invited to become beautiful.
GAZES AT COMET AND
FALLS IN COAL HOLE
New Yorker Goes Down While
Looking Up. and Police
Call Out Reserves
NEW YORK, May 12.—Mr. and Mrs.
John McGuire of 414 First avenue,
were walking in East Twenty-seventh
street last night.
"My dear," said Mr. McGuire, "see
that bright star? Well, that's Halley's
comet and It's going to hit this burg
one of these days and we'll disappear.','
"Gee," said Mrs. McGuire, reaching
for her husband's arm, "what's that
other bright one up—"
But • Mr. McGuire was not there.
Mrs. McGutre made a second grab in
the darkness, then screamed so that
she brought three policemep.
"He was talkin' about one of those
shootin' stars and then he went," ex
plained Mrs. McGuire.
"Went where?" asked one of the
policemen.
"How should I know? I'm hif> wife."
The police began an investigation,
which failed to reveal the whereabouts
of Mr. McGuire, and they were about
to abandon the search when Mrs. Mc-
Guire noticed an open coal hole.
"Are you there, John?" she called.
"He's down there. Go get him, one of
you," she said, turning to the police
men. The three policemen weighed at
least 600 pounds.
"That hole fits us too quick," they
exclaimed.
They sent In a call for reserves, and
Policeman Judo, who is built on gas
pipe lines and has about six feet four
inches of front elevation, arrived. He
went into the hole head first, the other
three policemen and Mrs. McGuire act
ing as anchors.
Presently Mr. McGuire was dis
lodged, along with part of a ton of
coal dust. He was patched up at
Bellevue.
LOCATING*THE BLAME
"What kind of a trip did you have?"
"Uncomfortable. I had an upper
berth. Every now and then they drop
ped a car from the train and coupled \
on another, with a jolt that felt like I
a collision. In several towns where we '
stopped the village bands were sere
nading and the locomotive iiad a
whistle that shrieked like a bansheo. !
And of course every time we passed
a freight train it sounded like thun- !
der."
"Then you didn't sleep well?"
"No. There was a fellow in the other
end of the car who snored occasionally. ■
He kept me awake nearly all night." 1
ffi 5 Excursion to Lindsay ffi f>
On Monday evening, May 16, we. will have another excursion to Lindsay, the famous Early Orange District of California, at which
time we have a rate of $5.00 for the round trip, including sleeper. This; special rate is made in order that those who have never
seen the Lindsay Orange District and who are really desirous of getting hold of first-class orange land close to town, school and
churches, may have an opportunity to see what we have to offer at very small expense. .
We do not care what district you have seen or what bargains have been offered you. We feel sure we have something better
for considerable less money. Lindsay is not an experiment, as there are over 10,000 acres planted to oranges, ranging in age from
one to eighteen years. These groves we guarantee to be in perfct condition and far ahead of groves the same age in any part of
Southern California.
We have several large subdivisions which we have recently put on the market in 10, 20 and 40-acre tracts, all close to town, and
