HORSE SCARED
BY AUTO LEAPS
INTO A RAVINE
Animal, Frightened by Horn,
Rears and Drags Rig and .
Riders Over Road
Driver Badly Bruised and Cut,
While Companion Escapes
Uninjured
Frightened by the horn of an ap
proaching automobile, a horse bar- |
'nessed to a buggy containing Miss j
Hattie Fisher and Otto Schwarzer, both {
of 1135 Kills street, plunged over a 50 |
foot precipice on the road between
Muir woods and Mill Valley yesterday I
afternoon. Schwarzer was severely
"bruised and cut and the buggy demol- j
ished. The girl escaped without a
scratch. • "
As the maddened horse jumped over
the precipice the light buggy turned
over. For an instant the horrified
spectators on the roadway above caught
a glimpse of the occupants - whirling
downward amid the flying hoofs of the
horse and then heard the crash as the
vehicle was splintered to pieces at the
bottom of the deep ravine. Schwarzer
was found almost unconscious, but the
girl recovered her composure in a few
minutes.
Van.*-.**-. SHOITS WARNING
warier and Miss Fisher planned
to go to Muir woods from Mill Valley
and hired a buggy at the latter, place.
They were driving along leisurely
who nthey came to a precipitous por
tion of the roadway. At the same in
stant a woman ahead of them called
out In warning. Looking up the road
way they saw an automobile running
around the turns at a good clip. .
"Schwarzer made frantic efforts to
prevent an accident. The driver of
t.he automobile, apparently believing
that there were no other vehicles in
the road, raced around the corner and,
sounded his horn.
The sudden blare of the horn
brought the climax. The horse reared
straight up and then with a maddened
leap shot over the edge of the Preci
pice.
AITOISTS RIDE AWAY
The names of the riders in the auto
mobile could not be learned. After the
accident they ran to the rescue of the
overturned couple, extricating, first the
girl and then Schwarzer from under
the ruined buggy. They placed them
In the car and hurried them to a drug
store, where, seeing that the wounds
were not serious, jumped into their
machine and drove away.
Schwarzer and Miss Fisher are to be
married in a few weeks. They returned
to the city on leaving the drug store.
"As the horse jumped," said Miss
Fisher, "the buggy overturned. I found
myself pitched out and for an instant
expected to be struck by the horse's
hoofs, I do not know how I escaped
as I did. It was the purest luck. The
fall was about SO feet and, on striking
the ground I was rolled along to the
bottom. Schwarzer's worst wound was
caused by a kick of the horse."
BLUE LAKES OFFICIAL

pervisors to Wait
With the declaration that the Sierra
Blue Lakes water and power company
is able to assist the city in obtaining a
Sierra water supply with a capacity of
360.000,000 gallons dally, Eugene J. Sul
livan, president of the organization, has
written to the board of supervisors re
questing it to cease spending money on
the Ketch Hetchy scheme until the
rights of the city have been determined
fully.
"In case." he writes, "the United States
commission determines that there are
other available Sierra sources this city
will be compelled to abandon the entire
Hetch Hetchy scheme. In that event our
company Is ready to assist this city in
every way possible to bring here a
Sierra water supply with a capacity of

While walking along Kearny street
early yesterday morning James John,
a miner from Grass Valley, was met
by two bunko men, who posed as

PRIEST FORECASTS
BIG IRISH EXHIBIT
Rev. Canon Daly Says Ireland
Will Be Well Represented
at 1915 Exposition
"For the first time in history Ireland
Is In a position to exhibit to the civil
ized world the products of its in
dustry. Ten millions of Irish people
in the United States will take pride
in witnessing an exhibit of Irish pros
perity, of which their forefathers
dreamed, and for which martyrs and
patriots spent their lives. That will
be during the Panama-Pacific exposi
tion in 1915."
That was | the declaration of Rev.
Canon J. Daly, a member of the de
partment ,of agriculture of Ireland,
yesterday afternoon before an audience
at the Central theater. Father Daly
said that the department, in itself
one of the first-fruits of the success
of the Irish, people, had been an im
measurable factor In the awakening
of the Irish Industries.
"Since the department has .been in-
auguratedas a governmental Institu
tion It has-been crowned with won
derful success. Farmers own - their
own land—---the feudal system, and the
landlord curse are things of the past.
"Ireland has been to the front: in
every symbol of olvlllzation except
home prosperity. The highest tribute
ever paid our music was recently,
when upon one of the most memorable
occasions of jiour local history. Madam
Tetrazzinl chose 'The Last Rose of
Summer' to touch the hearts of the
great assemblage who heard her sing
In open air on Christmas eve. We have
ever led the world in the art of danc
--■-•£■ ;.
"Ireland was never conquered. Its
patriotism, it* resources, its traditions
and Its struggles have made it a nation
exactly as was Greece; and Rome. It
enjoys independance In itself, no matter
what fetters have been placed upon

BULLET ENDS LIFE
IN WALL OF FLAME
Frank Broucek Sets Fire to j
Room and Then Commits |
• Suicide |
Despondency Following Loss of
Job Was the Cause for
the Tragic Deed
. Surrounded by a wall of flames
started by himself, Frank Broucek, a
bar tender, shot himself in his room
at 3181 Turk street early yesterday
morning. Firemen,:pushing- their ; way.
through the burning building, stumbled
across his body, with a bullet wound in
his breast and a revolver grasped in his
charred hand, /marking the tragedy as
a/suicide. He was still living when
discovered, but died on being taken
Into: the open air. *
The man had been despondent on ac
count of having lost his position in a
saloon at First avenue | and McAllister
street. Unable to .'secure employment,
ho lost heart. At times he threatened
suicide. ! '.'•
He retired early Saturday night, but
did not sleep. I From | the indications of
the room the half demented man first
applied a match to the furnishings of
his room., Little by little the flames
swept around the four walls, and then,
with the, building burning and crack
ling around him, he turned a revolver
on himself. -
It was the shot which awoke other
roomers to the tragedy. Running to
his room and pushing open the door,
they were driven back by the smoke.
Not until the firemen pushed their way
into the room was the body discovered.
The right hand was charred and
blackened, but the fingers still clasped
a revolver. " ,
The firemen carried him through the
flames to the sidewalk. He died be
fore medical aid from the central
emergency hospital could reach him.
Broilcek was about 36 years of age and
had been living at 3181 Turk street for
six months. ; The flre lops was esti
mated at about $200. .The flames were
extinguished soon after the arrival of
the firemen..
