Patrolman Darrow Leaves To
night In an Effort to Reach
Father's Bedside In Time.
In order to reach the bedside of Wil
liam Darrow, his father, who is report
ed to be dying at his home in Racine,
Wis., 11. F. Darrow, a patrolman in the
Son Antonio police department, will
leave tonight in an effort to see his
father before the grim rea|>er accom
plishes its work of life destruction.
A telegrap was received this morning
by Officer Darrow conveying the intel
ligence of the critical condition of his
father and that little hope was held out
for his recovery. Preparations were
made immediately for a leave of ab
sence and the son will begin his long
riue tonight.
It has been several years since the
father and son have seen each other.
H. F. Darrow came to this city about
three years ago and until recently had
been in the employ of the traction com
pany as a motorman. Because of dar
ing work in preventing what is believ
ed would have resulted in the killing
of a policeman. Darrow was presented
with a gold medal by the police depart
ment in recognition of his bravery. DJr
row later became a member of the de
partment.
MI MIOHIOIIIi
BUT WRONG UM
Pedestrians Have Owner of
Machine 528 Arrested, But
Cannot Identify Him.
Charged with speeding ami recklessly
operating an automobile, .1. N. Lott
son of W. C. Lott, 314 West French
place, was arraigned before Judge
Buckley in the police court, the com
plaint against him being filed by J. C.
Hopwood.
The testimony of Hopwood and J.
Streich was to the effect that while at
tempting to cross the street, at the cor
ner of Navarro and Houston streets on
the night of September 30, they nar
rowly escaped being run down by a
rapidly driven machine. Hopwood tes
tified that he was forced to jump in
front of a moving street ear to avoid
being struck by the automobile.
“It was a choice of being run over
by a street car or an automobile, and
I took my chances with the electric car,
which fortunately came to a stop just
a bare foot from me,” testified Hop
wood.
The automobile, Hopwood testified,
was going at a speed he estimated to be
twenty miles an hour and he caused
rhe charge to be filed against the name
he found registered opposite the num
ber “528,” which showed the machine
belonged to J. N. Lott. Neither of the
complaining witnesses were able to
identify the defendant as the man driv
ing the car.
The defendant testified that he was
not in the ear on the night in question,
but that lie was willing to ascertain
who had the car out that night. Upon
the recommendation of the prosecuting
attorney the ease was postponed until
October 9.

JUSE IN TIME
F. M. Taylor Scares Off Foot
pad Who Makes Attempt
to Rob August Trost
August Trosl. bartender, residing at
723 Montana street, was knocked down
by a lone highwayman at 10:45 o'clock
last night within half a block of his
home, and but for the timely interfer
ence on the part of F. M. Taylor, 714
Montana street, would have been robbed
of $45 cash and jewelry that Trost had
in his possession at the time.
Trost is employed at Theo. Magott’s
saloon. 814 East Commerce street, and
was on his way home when the hold-up
occurred. He was struck on the head
with some blunt instrument, evidently
a revolver, a severe contusion of the
scalp being inflicted, and Trost was
rendered unconscious for some time. His
assailant was frustrated in his attempt
to rob his victim by Mr. Taylor, who
immediately came to the rescue of Mr.
Trost.
The footpad had evidently been
aware that Trost carried a sack of
money, the proceeds of the day's sales,
ivith him. and had secreted himself in
a dark spot on the street. Without a
moment's warning, Trost was confront
ed by the highwayman, who made a
vicious pass at him with some instru
ment.
Averting the blow, Trost grappled
with his antagonist. “Don’t hit me,”
Trost cried, as he struggled with the
man in the dark. The next instant the
weapon came down with a erash on
Trost’s head and he fell unconscious
upon the sidewalk directly in front of
the gate of A. B. Heidrich's residence.
709 Montana street.
Mr. Taylor, also on his way home, was
about fifty feet ahead of Mr. Trost at
the time. Attracted by the noise of
the brief struggle, Trost's appeal not
to be struck and the heavy blow that
feWed the victim, Taylor whirled and
started on a run in the direction of the
combat.
“What do you mean? Stop that!”
Taylor yelled.
Evidently frightened by the appear
ance of another party on the scene, the
assailant broke ami ran down the street
as fast as he could go, soon disappear
ing in the darkness.
The injured man was hurriedly con
veyed to his home only a short distance
away and given medical attention.
Police headquarters in the meantime
had been notified by Mr. Taylor. De
teotives Newnam and Stowe responded
to the call, using an automobile. Mount
ed Officers Millard and Dukes also
reached the scene shortly afterwards
and although the surrounding neighbor
hood was carefully scoured, no trace
of the hold-up man could be found.
Trost could give no description of his
assailant, because of his inability to
distinguish his features in the dark.
Trost declares he has not a known ene
my in the city and is confident the mo
tive for the assault was uone other than
robbery. He is inclined to believe that
his assailant saw him when he placed
the small bag of money in his pocket
while at the saloon and prepared for
the hold up accordingly.
Trost is still confined to his bed at
his homo as a result of the encounter.
While his scalp was badly lacerated, the
Skull was not fractured. He also sus
tained a severe wrench of the spine and
suffers considerable pain.
