New York, Nov. 6. President Wilson's
automobile struck and injured a small
boy here late yesterday while the pres
ident was motoring to the Pennsylvania
station to catch his train for Wash
ington. The boy was apparently more
frightened than hurt. After stopping
'hi car and ascertaining that the acci
dent was trivial, the president contm
ued to the station and boarded the 3:30
train for Washington.
The accident occurred as the presi
dent's car, a limousine, had just turned
a corner in front of the Pennsylvania

hurt, darted from the sidewlak across
the street directly in the path of the
automobile. The youngster escaped the
wheels but a mudguard brushed against
his left arm and knocked him over in
the street..
Within a moment the boy bounded to
hia feet and began to rub his arm. The
The secret service men, following in an
other car, ran to him and asked, if he
had been hurt. He shook his head.
President Wilson, who apparently saw
what had happened, ordered his chauf
feur to stop the car. ,
Leaning out of the window of the car
the president awaited atbe boy's reply
to the secret service men. When the
little fellow, who appeared to be about
seven years of age, shook his head and
said he was not hurt, President Wilson
ordered the car to continue and the trip
to the station was resumed.
The youngster ran back to the side
walk, wiped his-face on his eleeve and
watched the president drive away. Mr.
Wilson glanced back. Tlw boy was still
standing on the curb rubbing his arm
and grinning as the car pasaed out of

Presented "The Man from Virginia" at
Opera House Last Evening.
' A drama strongly flavored with the es
sence of the old far West is "The Man
from Virginia," a four-act piece credit
ably presented by local talent actor peo
ple, in the onera house last evening. The
play, as it was interpreted by a finely
drawn cast, was another piece of the sort
that has been staged with varying d-

crees of success in the past few years,
in one way and another, last evening's
production was considerably better than
the average and an audience that occu
pied the greater part of the house was
quick to pick out the brightest features
of the four-act western pastoral and ap
plaud liberally. The presentation served
as a fresh reminder, too, that there is a
wealth of dramatic talent in Barre and
that under propitious circumstances it
can be developed in such a measure as
to be capable of entertaining in tine tasn
ion. .
Members of the civic department of the
Barre Woman's club, under whose aus
pices the piece wag produced, have ample
reason Ior;eeling grannea over ine ini
tial appearance of the company and the
indications are that the players will re
ceive deserved recognition from another
large audience on the occasion of their
second performance this evening. The
advance sale of seats bears out the pre
diction that the public will be much in
evidence in the opera house when the
curtain rises at 8:15,
1 The drama was written by Bruce
Chesterman and the participants were
well trained for the production by the
author. No exceptions are to be made in
the statement that every member of an
unusually well balanced cast interpreted
his or her part intelligently. In no in
stance was there faltering in the lines
and some very dramatic effects were ob
tained when liesitances and miscucs
would have been fatal. As the title in
dicates, the story of the play centers
around the arrival in" the gold fields of
terpreted by Miss Frieda Hooker, nearer
and nearer together. Most pi the hap
penings occur in the region around Wild
Cat, Cel., in that year of grace in the
West and disgrace in the South, 1889.
Four acts served to introduce grizzled
prospectors of the Nevada rangers, sol

entertaining musical numbers were played

Trial of R. Mastriami for
Impeding an Officer Is
Now Being Heard
Cuilty of simple assault was the ver
dict brought in by th'e jury yesterday
afternoon in the caso of State vs. Pietro
Garclli of Barre, charged with assault
with intent to kill Eugene Gapit last
summer. The case was completed at
11:40 o'clock in the forenon, and three
and one-half hours sufficed for the jury
to reach a decision. Sentence was de
ferred in Garelli's case, as it was in
several others tried this term, and the
respondent was released under bonds.
Al a o ciock, a jury was empaneica in
the case of State vs. Raffaele Mastriami
of Barre, accused of impeding an officer
in the village of Northficld on the even
ing of May 13, 1915. State's Attorney
Gleason is conducting the prosecution,
and the respondent has Attorneys Sen-
ter and Lord for counsel.
The information charges Mastriami
with impeding and hindering Special Of
ficer William O. Pride of Northfield,
while the latter was executing the duties
of his office, namely, while ejecting one
Giuseppe Tynipano from Guild hall,
Northfield, for creating a disturbance
during a religious meeting.
Henry W. Orsor, clerk of the village or
Northfield, was the first state witness,
his testimony consisting of showing by
records and knowledge that William O.
Pride is and was on May 13 a duly
authorized special policeman, appointed
by the village trustees.
Tlie special officer followed Air. urser
on -the stand and gave an account of
the alleged trouble from beginning to
end. The witness still carries a mark
claimed to have been made during the
encounter with Tympano and Mastriami,
in the shape of a crooked nose.
Officer Pride described the entertain
ment which was held in Guild ball tha
evening of the disturbancesmoving pic
tures being shown under the auspices Of
a New York Bible company, free of
charge, and religious mu&io was played
on a phonograph. He was directed to
attend the affair to keep law and order,
and almost immediately after he arrived
waa called upon to keep a number of
boys silent in front of the hall. He tes
tified that th respondent came in after
the show had started, and Tynipano was
with him.
They stood near an entrance to the
hall, and at the finish of a hymn, which
waa sung by the congregation, Tympano,
said the witness, shouted: "Hallelujah,
Hallelujah; good, all right," in a loud
voice. Tlie witness asaerted that he
requested the man to kep quiet several
times, but he persisted in repeating
those or similar words. Finally he (the
officer) gTasped hold of htm and started
to put him out of the hall. Then it
was that .Mastriami piayea tne pars
which resulted in his subsequent arret.
The latter struck the officer, according
to Mr. Pride's testimony, in the face,
not one, but five or six times, all of
tb blows landing near the nose and
under the eye. Hie officer retained hia
hold on Tympano, notwithstanding the
rain of blow directed in his face, and
uccecdcd in ejecting him from the ball.
When he turned to look after Maatnaim,
the latter had disappeared. Tlie witneas
teatifled that his m wa fractured by
th blows; and be turned toward the
jury to show thst the organ was not
atrsight. liis eyea were uiacoioreu at
the time.
This forenoon the state put on three
more witneaae, Meaors. Teller and In
galla, witneaare of th affair, they bar
ns been standing in the liall entrance
at the time, and tlief of Police Jerry
M. Donahue of Northfield.
From the line of questions aaked by
the repotiileri a attorney, it inferred
that the d. f enae w rll tV that Ma.tr lami
