COWARDLY ATTEMPT TO WRECK
SCAFFOLD BY THE USE
OF ACID
PlttBburg What at first wa
thought to have been an accident
which almost resulted disastrously to
many pedestrians In Fifth avenue has
turned out to have been a dastardly
attempt at murder presumably the
work of a fiend or Insane man But for
the twisting of a guy rope on a scat
fold and tho presence of mind of the
three men working on tho Hotel Ant
ler they and possibly some of the pass o
crsby four stories below them would
have been crushed to death
A reward of 1250 has been offered
for information loading to tho arrest
and conviction of the person or per
sons who put acid on tho scaffold

ropes which it Is claimed parted one
ropo as neatly as if it had been cut
with akhlfe when the weight of three
men was placed upon It
The contractor found evidences of
acid having been applied to the part
of tho rope which broke This he
thInks wile done by some person try
Ing to kill all the men at work when
the scaffold would fall Ho does not
suspect who could havo placed tho
acid on the rope which for several
nights han ben put Into a barrel and
allowed to remain standing on the
sidewalk In front of the Hotal Antler
Whoever applied the acid to tho rope
did so In one spot only so that It
would require some title weight to pull
It apart after it had destroyed tho ma
nlla tissue of the rope
The accident happened shortly after
noon when the three embloyes John
Thompson Herbert Clams and William
Blackburn were preparing tq raise the
scaffold upon which they wore work
ing cleaning the granite front of the
hotel from the fourth story to tho
fifth The rope on the right hand aide
of the scaffold parted near the scaf
fold without warning and Thompson
who bad been pulling on the guy rope
on that side just tightened his hold
and hung suspended In the air as tho
scaffold loll from him
Clqm lAnd Blackburn with rare
presence of mind ont oopposite end
of the swinging ladder i each grabbed
as tho other end dropped onp catch
ing the scaffold and the other tho
rapes on the other sldo Tho guy rope
twisted and held tho scaffold from fall
ing clear and each of the men clung
desperately while the crowd below
scattered and gathered on tho other
side of tho street expecting any min
ute to boo the men drop to certain
death <
Contractor Smith was eating in the
hotel when ho heard a cry that tho
scaffold had broken He raced up the
stairs until he reached the fifth floor
and swinging out of the window ho I
grabbed tho suspended buy rope and
slid down to where ho could release
this rope and allow the swinging lad
der to descend to tho pavement
