A. M. McGill received a severe scalp
wound and was badly bruised in tho
panic in the ring. None of the In
jured are seriously hurt.
Stepped on Cap.
The first explosion was caused by
Williams, who while walking through
the east side of the ring, stepped on
a cap. It exploded tearing off his
shoe and lacerating his foot severely.
He fell to the floor with a cry and In
stantly there was a shout that some
Insane man was discharging his re
volver at random. Immediately there
was a wild panic and while the book
les seizing their cash boxes bent low
In their booths, the crowd rus'hoj
across to the south side o the rlntr
in the effort to escape. Just as the
thick of the throng reached this side
of the ring, somebody stepped on
another cap and the crowd started
back to the place from which they
had started on their first run. Mc
Gill was knocked down during this
rush and was tramped upon.
' Third Explosion.
A third explosion took place some
minutes after the panic had been I
allayed. It occurred just beneath a
chair upon which Bruno was sitting,
threw him to the floor and a portion
of the chair striking his foot tore
It badly. While excitement was at
Its height, a man attempted to grab
a cash box from a bookmaker doing
business under the name of the Chi
cago club. He was knocked down by
a clerk and ran away befofe he could
be arrested.
