CAUSED A
STAMPEDE
Flat Iron Tenents Fled All on
Account of Stenographer's
Scream
NEW YORK. April 19.—Leaving in a
hurry. T. S. Wlnans, the manager of
the New York office of Whitehead &
Hoag, celluloid manufacturers, went to
lunch today and left a piede of celluloid
on the Broadway window of his office
on the twentieth floor of the Flatiron
building. The sun was beating in
through the window. Miss Edna I).
Beach, the stenographer, was hammer
ing away at a typewriter to make up
time while the boss was out, when she
happened to look up and saw the cellu
loid on fire in the window. She rushed
into the hall and screamed fire. The
tenants came out on that floor, rushed
for the stairs and elevators, and soon
there was a stampede of the tenants
on many of the twenty-two floors to get
out. By this time considerable cellu
loid was on fire in room 2006 and a col
umn of dense black smoke was rolling
out of a window. This attracted the
attention of crowds in Broadway and
Twenty-third street and in Madison
Square. Some one turned in a fire
alarm, and as the engines arrived the
crowds gretv larger until Fifth avenue.
Broadway, Twenty-third and Twenty
second streets were blocked and thou
sands were crowding back into Madi
son Square. Employes of the building
quickly put out the fire. The loss was
only $300.

Famous Detective Who " Also
Ran" for Mayor of New
York Left Politics
NEW YORK, April 19.—"Big BiU"
Devery, the best police chief New York
ever had. and not long ago a candidare
for mayor, has abandoned politics and
is at the Hotel Rudolf. Atlantic City,
trying to teach a new baby to call him
grandpa. The infant Is the child of his
daughter Anna, who left her home in
"de Nlnt" a year ago ostensibly for the
theater, but went to the church of Holy
Innocents instead and was married to
Edward B. Fink.
"Big Bill" says he was only sky
larking when he ran for mayor, and
that if you take his word for it he never
was in politics in his life.
"They used to say that I was as
.crooked as Pearl street, which hits
Broadway twice." is a favorite saying
of his lately, "but no one never proved
nothin' on me. That last campaign
gave me a clean bill of health. People
tried to prove somethin', but they
didn't prove nothin'."

i
i Mrs. Green is Reported to Have
Left for Parts
Unknown
NEW YORK. April 19.—-A report was
printed today to the effect that Mrs.
Hetty Green had at last made good her
threat to leave her old home in an
apartment house at 57 Thirteenth
street. Hoboken, and that she moved
from there for parts unknown a week
ago yesterday. It is said that Mrs.,
Green took with her to her new home
—wherever that is—her daughter Syl
via and her dog Dewey.
Mrs. Green was seen at the Chemical.
National bank this morning. When
she was asked if the story of her mvs
terious departure from Hoboken was
true and to tell what her new address
was. she said; "That story is the usual
amount of trash. I don't care to make
any remarks about It. It Is not any
body's business where I live."
Mrs. Green treated a question as to
whether or not Dewey was with her
with scornful silence.

PAINFUL
OPERATION
Georgia Surgeon Lays Open
His Own Face to Save
His Life
(Special Telegram to Evening Teller.)
SAVANNAH, Ga.. April 19.—Dr.
George M. Harman, a noted surgeon
and member of the council, scratched
his face with an instrument during an
operation a month ago and blood pois
oning set in. An abscess formed un
der the right eye. He urged attending
physicians to cut into the diseased sec
tion, but they objected and V e resolved
to perform the operation himself.
Weak and emaciated. Dr. Harman In
structed his negro velet to bring certain
instruments to him. The servant then
lifted him from bed and held him in his
arms before the mirror while the ope
rations was in progress. Dr. Harman
ran the lance from the inside of hts
mouth up almost to the eye, the cheeH
was severed from the bone and an
opening made so the poison could drain
downward. Almost immediately he felt
relief, and he has been improving ever
since.
Dr. Harman feared the poison would
reach the cavity immediately under the
eye. He said he knew' if the poison
reached the blood vessels and nerve
which communicate directly with tre
eye he could not live but a few hours.
The cutting did not hurt at all. Dr.
Harman says, so great was the other
pain he was suffering.
BONDS FOB
PHILIPPINES
Cooper Bill Provides for a Guar
antee on $5,000,000 Bond
Issue for Improvements
WASHINGTON, April 19—The house
has passed on the Cooper bill for the
issuance of bonds for municipal Im
provements in the Philippines, and
guaranteeing interest on capital to be
invested on railroad construction in
those islands.
The bill was amended so as to elim
inate the alternative proposition last
presented by Secretary Taft, that if
private capital did not seek investment
in the islands the proposed roads might
be built by the government and leased
for operation. Chairman Cooper said
that the committee believed it would
be better to first make an effort to se
cure the Investment of private capital,
and should this not be successful, the
provision for government construction
could be resorted to through additional
legislation.
The bond provision for municipal im
provements limits the issue to $5.000,
000 instead of $10,000,000, as first pro
posed. The interest to be paid on
these bonds is reduced from 5 to 4M
per cent. The denominations of silver
certificates authorized to be issued are
limited front 2 pesos to 500, instead of
2 to 1,000. Otherwise the bill was re
ported as heretofore given.

FINE ARTS
AT ST. LOUIS
Oil Paintings and Statuary From
Many Nations Now Ready
for Exhibition
(Special Telegram to Evening Teller.)
ST. LOUIS, April 19.—Oil paintings,
statuary and rare specimens of applied
art are being fast installed in the gal
leries of the world's fair art palace, the
unpacking of exhibits having been be
gun as soon as the decorators com
pleted the interior finishings which
have made this group of buildings the
handsomest in which a collection of
the world's art was ever displayed.
Dark silk burlap has been used in
covering the walls and this furnishes
an excellent background for the paint
ings which face aisles well lighted by
roof windows, the rays falling with a
soft effect upon the pictures and other
exhibits nowr being tastefully arranged
preparatory to the opening of the gal
leries with the exposition on April SO.
With the French exhibits twelve
caretakers were brought from Paris to
do the unpacking and placing of the
Inventions perfected and patents se

Monk.
treasured works preserved from the old
masters, and this government is the
furthest advanced with its installation.
Belgium has contributed more than 250
oil paintings.
Another of the largest contributors is
the Italian government, and its exhibts
are nearly all in place. The careful
work required for properly executing
this task was performed by Italian sail
ors under the direction.of the secretary
of the Italian commission. Great Brit
ain's display occupies thirteen galleries
and include 300 oil paintings and 150
water colors. They are now being In
stalled. There are 135 galleries In the
art palaces.
Now is the time to subscribe for the
Lewiston Evening Teller because all
Europe will soon mix in the far eastern
war. The political campaign Is also
coming on and you will certainly want
to keep posted In these matters.
