WOMEN IN BATTLE
WITH ANGRY DEER
SAVE BABY'S LIFE
Mother Rushes to Stop Animal's
Charge on Tot and Is
GRASPS NECK TO AVOID HOOFS
Mrs. Knapke Goes to Aid Mrs.
Rymal and Throws Mad-
Clinging desperately to the neck of
a maddened doer in the Indian Village
grounds yesterday, Mrs. J. T. Jtymal
struggled bravely to save the life of
her daughted Mildred, 2 years old, who
had been attacked by the animal. Only
when Mrs. W. T. Knapke of 977 West
Forty-fifth stree* went to the mother's
assistance was the battle won. Both"
womon narrow- escaped being tram
pled to death by the deer.
At the instant it seemed Mrs. Rymal
would perish under the hoofs of the
deer she escaped by scrambling to her
feet and throwing her arms about its
neck. The deer tried repeatedly to
shake her off and trample her, while
hundreds who were too frightened to
go to her assistance watched the bat
RtSMFS TO M OTHER'S AID
Mrs. Knapke was the first to act.
Running up to the animal, she seized
one of its forelegs. The deer, strug
gling to rid Itself of the women, fell.
Then the two women, seizing the baby,
ran for their lives. Others going to
their assistance met them and drove
the deer back. Antonio Apache, an
Indian, manager of the grounds, cap
tured the deer. It knew him and be
came docile again, being driven into
an enclosure and locked up.
Mrs. Rymal's dresa was cut and torn
by the sharp hoofs of the deer until
it was almost in tatters. She waa
badly bruised about the back and her
ltft wrist and thumb were wrenched.
l!i i- injuries are not serious. Mrs.
Knapke escaped with slight bruises.
It was about 5 o'clock in the after
noon When Mrs. Rymal and Mrs.
George Hodge, 4203 Belinda street, both
of whom were attending the pi'Niic of
the TenneMM society, started to stroll
through tho grounds of the Indian Vil
lage. The baby Mildred was allowed
to toddlo along as she pleased. The
two women ware studying the gro
tesque carvings of a totem pole when
the baby spied the deer.
CHAIWSTO OX BABY
With outstretched arms the infant
toddled toward the animal, whose
large eyes seemed to reflect only gen
tleness.' Mrs. Rymal ran toward it,
■crOftming, and reached Mildred barely
In time to snatch her from beneath
descending hoofs. The deer charged
again and knrcked Mrs. Rymal prone
on the ground. It pawed her many
times before she got to her feet again
and seized it around the neck to save
herself from the sharp hoofs.
Mrs Hodge, believing her friend
would be killed, fainted. It was then
that Mrs. Knapke, rushing forward
from a group of terrified picnickers
who were watching the struggle, bold
ly Joined in the battle and aided Mrs.
Rymal in escaping. Mrs. Rymal lives
at 1345 Wall street.

EARL SPENCER, FORMERLY
VICEROY OF IRELAND, DEAD
LONDON, Aug. 13.— J. Printz Spen
cer, fifth oarl of Spencer, died here
today. Spencer was born in 1835. The
oarl twice held the posts of viceroy of
Ireland and president of the council,
and was first lord of the admiralty
from 1892 to 1895. Up to 1907 he was
chancellor of the Victoria university.
Viscount Althroty half brother of the
earl, succeeds to the title.
The earl never recovered from a
paralytic stroke which he suffered in
November, 1905. He had another slight
seizure recently, since which ho had
gradually sunk in health.
The "Red Earl," as he was called on
account of his flaming beard, was one
of the last of the early Victorian polit
ical warriors. Perhaps the most con
spicuous services of -his career were
his two terms as lord lieutenant of
Ireland. He was an eye witness of the
phoenix park assassination from a
window of the vice regal building.

Why the District Attorney's Office
Shows Such Enormous Extrava
gance of Expenditure
Feeding Walter Parker's Political Lambs
At the Public Expense
THE HERALD has in its possession fac similes of seven claims which are similar to
those we have heretofore published copies of, made out in favor of David Tatter
son, whose real name is David Patterson Fredericks, and who is a brother of
District Attorney Fredericks. These claims show upon their face a total of eighty-six
days' services at $5 a day, which, together with certain expenses charged in them, aggre
gate $530. . , .
The district attorney says that these represent "patriotic services rendered by nis
brother in assisting him to discover violations of the gambling laws.
One of these claims for $65 shows that it was for "Detective services in criminal
case Los Angeles county, to wit, the People against Devore."
Another for $50 shows "Detective service, district attorney's office.
Another for $70 shows "Detective service investigating gambling cases.
Another for $70 shows "Detective service in investigating liquor and gambling
Another for $105 shows "Detective service investigating gambling and illegal liquor
selling, Los Angeles county."
Another for $50 shows "Detective work in gambling cases."
Another for $120 shows "Detective services, Venice."
The first claim above noted is the only one where the case in which the services were
supposed to have been rendered is named. The others are so general in character as to
make it impossible to identify the services by anything contained in the claim, lne
claim showing the case in which services were rendered bears date June 11, 1907, and ap
pears to have been for the first service rendered by the district attorney's brother.
The question that naturally presents itself is, why, if it was possible to name the
case in which his first service was rendered, any concealment was necessary as to the
cases where other services were rendered?
The truth of the matter is, as stated by the district attorney, that his brother was
here at that time, unoccupied, waiting for the issuance of his license to practice by the
board of medical examiners of the state. It appears that the district attorney found
him occupation which paid him at the rate of $5 per day, although, save in one instance,
the character of this occupation is not sufficiently identified to enable any officer of the
county whose business it is to investigate claims against it, to make any independent in
vestigation of their validity.
What The Herald believes is that this is another instance of that sort of action upon
the part of the district attorney which makes us feel that he should not receive the nomi
nation at the coining primaries.
The Herald believes that District Attorney Fredericks is more thoroughly identified
with the disreputable Southern Pacific machine, bossed by Walter Parker, than any other
official in the county, except Supervisor Tvs Eldridge.
We believe he has permitted his office to be used as a dumping ground for Walter
Parker's henchmen. .
Witness the case of Percy Hammond, who, after he had made a record in the city
council which forfeited the confidence of the people, by voting for certain measures in
which Mr. Parker's Southern Pacific employers were interested; was promptly given a
berth in the district attorney's office as one of his deputies.
Witness the case of H. 5. G. McCartney, whose value to the Southern Pacific ma
chine had been so great that that machine has taken rare of him by sending him to the
legislature, where he drew a salary, by giving him certain state employment from which
he has drawn thousands of dollars, and by saddling him on the county as one of the dis
trict attorney's deputies. .
We might multiply instances of this kind, but we think these are sufficient to show
the way in which the district attorney's office is conducted.
It would be expected that an office managed for the purpose of accommodating hang
ers-on of the Southern Pacific political machine would show the record in extravagant
management which the district attorney's office does show.
On yesterday we published figures showing that the expenditures of his office had
increased over 85 per cent in three years. Unfortunately, the auditor's report showing the
-figures for the first six months of the current year is not a%'ailable, and we have had to
content ourselves with the comparison from 1906 to 1909. These figures will bear repe
For the first six months of 1909 the district attorney's office was run at a .cost of
For the same period the superior court, with nine judges, cost $22,670.75.
For the same period the-sheriff's office cost $13,234.61.
It will be noted that the district attorney's office cost $3662 less for the first six months
of 1909 than did the superior court with only nine judges.
For the last six months of 1909 the district attorney's office cost $35,181.54.
The superior court, whose departments had been increased by three, or 33 1-3 per
cent, making twelve departments, cost for the same period $33,191.68, or about $2000 less
than the district attorney's office. .
The sheriff's office, managed by an honest, economical and efficient official, cost for
the six months of 1909 $19,341.47, or little more than half the cost of the district attorney s
Again, note that in the first six months of 1909 the district attorney spent for Special
detectives" $7039.43, while the sheriff's office spent for the salary of the sheriff and all
his deputies $15,002, or little more than double the cost of the district attorney's detectives.
In yesterday's Herald the word deputies was by error printed detectives, which inter
fered with the correctness of the showing.
While with the great iner-ase in population and business In the county and an increase of three
judges the superior court shows an increase in cost of less than than r>o per cent, ami, the sheriff: s office
shows an increase in cost of less than 50 per cent within throe years, the district attorney's office shows
an Increase in cost of more than Sb per cent for the same period.
It is a costly thing to the taxpayers of this county for the district attorney s office to
have to support brothers who are out of an occupation, and the discredited members of
Boss Walter Parker's Southern Pacific machine.
Furthermore, we helieve that the district attorney was thoroughly identified with that disreputable
branch of the Southern Pacific machine represented by the late Mayor Harper and his jjoodllngr <■
administration. We believe that if the district attorney had done his duty in advising the grand jury
which investigated Harper's administration that body would not have stopped at the in dictment of
Broadhead, who after all was only a miserable tool : >nd subordinate of his corrupt boss, Harper, and
Harper's corrupt police commission and chief of ponce. Kern. .
The grand jury which returned the Broadhoad Indictment also reported its moral conviction of the
guilt of other city officials, but that it refrained from Indicting them on account of lack of evidence
We "believe "hat'had not the district attorney been interested in protecting Harper and Kern, the
higher ups in Walter Parker's disreputable Southern Pacific machine, he would have sa.d to the grand
jury "While the evidence against these men may not be entirely sufficient to convict upon trtal, yet it
shows to a moral certainty that they are guilty. I would therefor* advise that they bo indicted, be
cause when all the members of a corrupt ring are Indicted, u.-ually one or more of them, before tneir
trial comes on, will get scared and turn state's evidence and furnish testimony upon which convictions
CanTh% course was pursued by District Attorney Folk when he secured the indictment of the boodling
members of the St. Louis city government.
It was pursued by District Attorney Liangdon and his assistant, Mr. Heney, when :ney secured the
indictment of the boodling members of San Francisco's board of supervisors.
It was pursued by the prosecuting officer of the city of Plttsburg when he secured the Indictment
of the corrupt members of Pittsburgh city government.
And in each instance It resulted In some of the indicted officials turning state s evidence and furnish
ing testimony upon which convictions were had. L .
It was not pursued by District Attorney Fredericks, and the result was that a lot of boodlinpr offi
cials who had disgraced this city, sold the administration of justice In it, received as bribes the infam
ous earnings of the lowest dregs of society, and committed crime after crime, were all permitted to
escape Why? Because Boss Walter Parker's local 3outhern Pacific machine was responsible ror
these men being in office, and was intereste-i in their escaping the just deserts for their many crimes.
The Herald does not believe it will be possible to destroy the disreputable Southern Pacific machine
in this county until District Attorney Fredericks destroyed, because it believes that the district attor
ney's office Is the very center of the intrenched power of this political machine in the county s govern
ment. -It believes that through the district attorney's office thousands of dollars of the county's money
is used every year for the purpose of perpetuating the life of this political machine, and it believes thot
it has shown enough facts to convince every reasonablo and thinking voter that this is so.

Twenty Policemen of Columbus

Mayor Declares That Stronger

COLUMBUS, Ohio. Aug. 13.—Two afc
tempts were made late tonight to blow
up the west side car barns with dy
namite. A large number of polica
have been sent to the scene. The ex
plosions were inside the barn.
Twenty police officers tonight joined
the mutiny in the Columbus depart

A telegram from Springfield re
ceived this morning says the car men
on the Columbus-Dayton division of
the Ohio electric line went on a strike
at 2:30 this morning. The company
says it has enough men to run its cars.
EXCITEMENT THKOUGHOCT CITT
The city today is probably more ex
cited than at any time since the pres
ent strike of the union street car mo
tormen and conductors, which was be
gun four weeks ago for recognition ot
their union. The attitude of the reg
ular policemen in openly defying the
orders of Mayor Marshall to man the
cars last night is being discussed on
every corner. The 1000 union men In
the city are much excited.
Sensational reports that many other
police will mutiny tonight have not
been confirmed. Governor Harmon ia
being urged today to call out the troops
again, but has tuken no action.
There are now fifty-two mutineers
on the police force who have been sus
pended. The mayor's attitude in not
discharging them the moment they re
fused to go on the cars is condemned
by many. Instead of directing that
he pleaded with the police to obey his
orders. The importation of detectives
to ferret out the stone throwers has
added to the excitement and much ap
prehension is felt as to developments.
WOUNDKD CHILD IMrKOVES
Little Helen Kelley, who was sh"t
by unknown person! last night, is rent
ing easily today, but her wound is se
rious, she having been shot through
the left shoulder at the base of the
neck. Mrs. Kathertne Kelley and Mrs.
Charles Hart, who were wounded, will
be out within a day or two.
Mayor Marshall said today:
"I have done all within my power to
restore and preserve peace and will
continue to do so. I have called for
special police in unlimited numbers. I
have called on patriotic citizens to come
forward and offer their services. I
called on the governor for troops and
they were fully furnished. Since the
withdrawal of the troops all has been
done that could be done with the means
at hand. If it is necessary I will call
for troops again."
