Cause of Explosion
of the Police Auto
Careful' Investigation Said to Show
Mechanism of the Car Was
Not at Fault.
After sn Investigation of the fire at po
lice station Friday evening, which was sup
posed to have had its origin in the ex
plosion of the steam car used aa police
ambulance, William Drummond said that
the car Is In no way responsible for the
blase. livery part of the steamer, except
such ns were burned. Is In perfect tact.
The gas tank, which was at first thought
to be destroyed by explosion. Is not dis
turbed. No part of the car haa given way
und the machinery is -as valuable as It
"1 am sure that the car was not respon
sible for the fire and I have taken the pre
caution to ask the factory to send out a
machinist that the whole thing might be
thoroughly Investigated," says Mr. Drum
mond. '.'Fred Bausenek, the unfortunate
chauffeur who was so seriously burned,
tells mo that no pilot light was burning
on the car at the time of the fir, which
might have atarted the blaxe. He had
taken the precaution to turn the light off
beforo he bet an the tesi. The chauffeur
was testing the gasoline with a glass In
strument which he had just purchased. He
had started to drain the gas tank and bad
unscrewed the loner plug and had per
haps five to ten gallons of gascilne In
the pall. Much of this had spilled and run
out over the floor. It was this which ig
nited with the gas flame usually burned
in the stable and It was this which caused
the fire. He had laid a pres to-lite gas
tank to one aide, .which the extreme heal
exploded, but it was In no way connected
with the car and was nowhere about It.
"As a matter of fact, I have never heard
of one of these .tanks blowing up. I have
known of White Steamers going through
fires Just as this ambulance did and Just
as the Goodrich White Steamer did over
In Council Dluffg some time ago, neither
of which suffered, and they Invariably
come vut intact. They are wonderfully
constructed, and especially to withstand
such attacks as this. The White Steamer
had few parts and no intricate machinery
to get out of order, and the services of
nn expert machinist Is not at all neces
sary to operate the car. Only the chauf

CITY HALL JOKER AT WORK

A peculiar state of dissatisfaction exists
smong the groups of men whose nsmes
have been sent In to the city council by
the city engineer and street commissioner
and oonflrmed by that body. Many of
mem have had little or no work and can
not be assured of any before next season.
The fault for this condition of affairs
lies In the law as at present framed, ac
cording te the officials concerned. All
their employes must be confirmed by coun
cil, and It Is Impossible to wait until the
hour men are wanted before appointing
them. The result of this system is that
both the engineer and street commissioner
have sent In lists and had the men con
firmed by council when In reality there
was no certainty of any work for them,
and far away possibility of steady em
ployment. On the rolls of both departments there
are laborers, inspectors, foremen and others
carried, who live in expectancy and the
hope long deferred Is making them sick.
Some men named for the positions went
so far, on prospects, as to throw up other
positions, and now find themselves hang
ing around waiting for something to turn
"We are doing the Mlcawber stunt with
a vengeance," said one putative Inspector,
"but very unwillingly."
Street Commissioner Fly tin views the sit
uation with something of equanimity, as
does the city engineer, but neither man
draws any satisfaction from existing con
ditions. "Every Monday morning, from about 8:4ft
to 7:30, no one has a word to say against
me as street commissioner," says Flynn.
"The men who want work in this depart
ment show up at the city tool house bright
and early every Monday, but there Is no
possibility of putting even a fair propor
tion at work, because of the slim fund we
have to draw on. So those that are left
out beoome harsh critics at once. We are
powerless to change the situation, how
ever, which fact doesn't cut much figure
with a man who really wants to work. The
city pays 26 cents an hour for laborers,
which keeps a great many more looking
for Jobs than can possibly be employed.
Having been confirmed by the city coun
cil, It Is hard for some to understand why
they are not at once employed. We have
the work to do, and could keep a great
many more busy than we do, yet we are
unable to do so, and cannot possibly do
better than we are doing at present until

"I can't count the number of times this
goat haa suddenly got lost and the number
of times that these boys have come around
to ask if I will give them anything for
finding my goat and of the goat's sudden
recovery," said Mr. Mondorf to the police.
"He. always gets lost In the morning and

Some Things You Want to Know
Two hundred years ago the good people
of London awoke to find themselves the
possessors of what no' people ever before
had possessed a dally newspaper. The
Dally Courant was a tiny aingle-ahet
publication appearing six times a week.
Like all Its successors, living and dead, it
was Intended to supply a "long-felt want."
The particular demand existing at that
time was the desire of the people of Lon
don to obtain news of the campaigns being
waged on the continent by the duke of
Marlborough, for In the good year 1709 Eu
rope was bleeding In the war of the Span
ish succession. The history of dally news
papers from that day until this Is the his
tory of the world, but there Is a particular
trade history which Is of Interest even to
those not engaged In Journalism.
The t'nlted States and Canada now
boast 2.600 dally Journals and the rest of
the world has about as many. There are
fO.OC newspspers and other periodicals In
the world. 23.000 of which are published In
the 1'nited States and Canada. More than
half of all the periodicals In the world ap
pear in the Fngllsh language. The devel
opment of modern journalism has been the
peculiar mission of the English and Amer
ican nations. It Is fitting, therefore, that
London should have the honor of being the
birthplace of the dally newspaper and that
It should now be the home of the most
powerful of all dally Journals; while the
United States surpasses all other countries
In the versatility, scope and prosperity of
The newspaper, however. Is an Italian
Invention. Leaving aside the Chinese an
tiquities and reckoning only the western
world, the first newspaper editor was
Julius Caesar. The great Roman did not
ponsess the facilities of the twentieth cen
tury, but he had the soul of a press agent.
He used the dead walls of Rome to display
bulletins of the news news carefully col
ored to suit the poKleal desires of J. Cae
sar. If this esrly effort at publicity be
barred, still the Italians have the claim to
the first newspaper. In the latter part of
the sixteenth century the first regular pub
lication of a bulletin containing Informa
tion for the public was undertaken In
Venice. These bulletins were not printed,
but were written on large sheets and dis
played In a public room. They were called
"gasetta," from which comes the Fngllsh
newspaper title "Oatette." The popular
clamor for news of the war between the
Venetians and the Turks was the "long
felt want" supplied by the appearance of
these "gasetta." The files of sixty years
of Its Issues are preserved In a museum In
The first printed paper was the "English
Mercurls," a religious publication which
appeared In London In 155$. The earliest
real newspaper was the London Weekly
News, born In 1619. For ninety years the
London press led a varied existence, mere
than J00 newspapers being started only to
perish In early failure. But In the fullness
of time several weeklies were firmly es
tablished, and there were seven thrlce-a-weeek
Journals In England when "The
Dally Courant" made its bow to the pub
lic In the autumn of 1709.
The first newspaper venture In America
was a tragic failure. Mr. Richard Fierce
of Boston In 1690 began the publication of
"Publick Occurances." He declared In his
salutatory that there were toe many un
founded and baseleas rumors floating about
Boston, and that the mission of hla paper
was to record them and then trace them
to their source. Mr. Pierce appears to be
entitled to the honor of being the first
Journalistic muckraker. But those were
cruel times, and the legislature suppressed
the sheet after Its first Issue, solemnly de
claring It to be "a pamphlet which came
out contrary to law and contained reflec
tions of a very high nature."
A generation later Benjamin Franklin
confided to his mother his intention to
start a newspaper. The worthy woman
exclaimed: "What can you be thinking of,
there are two newspapers In America
now!" As a matter of fact there were five,
but three of them were so far away that
Mrs. Franklin had net heard of them.
The successor of the paper which Franklin
did establish now has the largest circula
tion of any weekly publication In the world
more than a million and a quarter a
The first daily newspaper In the United
States. The American Daily Advertiser,
appeared in Philadelphia In 17R4. three
years after England had acknowledged the
Independence of the states and five years
before the beginning of the government
under the constitution. The New TorB
Daily Advertiser followed In 1788, and In
1786 the Pittsburg Oaiette began its
present prosperous career.
The United States now has eighty-five
newspapers more than a hundred years
old, and In this respect, at least, America
Is quite as old and quite as mature as Its
European sisters. Many of the eighty-five
members of the "Newspaper Century club"
are still weeklies, but most of them, week
lies in 1809 are now dallies. The Baltimore
American, the Philadelphia North Ameri
can and the Charleston Newi and Courier
are the most venerable.

Charles Davis, an auctioneer for Samuel

the charge of larceny. Silas Price was the
complaining witness. He said that he had

The majority of the century-old publica
tions are In the eastern states, of course,
Pennsylvania heading the list with nine
teen, followed by New Tork with fifteen.
Strangely enough, Ohio cornea next with
nine, and then Massachusetts with seven.
The St. Louis Repub.lc, 101 yesrs old. Is the
only one west of the Mississippi river. The
first newspaper west of the AlleRhenies
was the "Kentucke Uaxette" of Lexington,
founded In 1787, and which still fourlshes.
The growth of the newspaper business
was so great that by 130 the United States,
with 13,000.000 population, had more news
papers than all Europe, with 190,000.000
people. The American record has been
maintained and the United States still has
more newspapers than all Euiope. and un
til the rise of the newspaper in Asia, It
had more than all the rest of the world.
The New Tork Herald, founded by James
Gordon Bennett In 1S35, was the first of
the modern school of newspapers. In De
cember of that year a great fire In New
York destroyed property worth SM.OOO.OOO.
Mr. Bennett wrote a report of the fire,
with "human Interest" embellishments. The
people were astounded, and the story was
repeated In the Herald the second day In
response to popular demand. Before that
time newspapers had devoted practically all
their attention to politics and political
news, and to news from other cities. Lora'.
news was Ignored. If a fire occurred, it
was supposed that everybody knew about
It already, and that It would be silly to
print anything about It. That attitude to
ward local news Is responsible for Uie fact
that the first voyage of Robert Fulton's
"Clermont" was considered to be worth
only seven lines In the New York Evening
Post, and not that until after an advertise.
ment of the rates of passage to Albany
was Inserted. Mr. Bennett wrote all about
the great fire, and made the great dlscov
ery that the people who see a thing are
the very people who most want to read
about It. He made another discovery at
the same time, that "human Interest" Is
quite aa much a feature of the news as Is
In England The Times became supreme
In the Journalistic field In the latter part
of the eighteenth century. In 1M7 The
Times sent a special correspondent to the
continent to report the Napoleonic wars.
Before that time the newspapers had de
pended altogether upon official sources for
news. Within a year The Times demon
strated the usefullness of the special cor
respondent by furnishing important news
to the government days in advance of the
official despatches. From that day until
this the special correspondent has been an
Increasingly Important factor In Interna
tional affairs, and The Times has oc
cupied a position of commanding Influence
In political Journalism. But the English
idea, as exemplified In The Times, had to
fall before the more catholic American Idea,
and the English newspspers of the largest
circulation do not' fall to realize the Im
portance of "human Interest."
These beginnings of the newspaper busi
ness were email and Insignificant compared
with the Journalism of today. The Inven
tion of the locomotive and the telegraph,
each In turn, aided enormously In the
development of the press. But the civil
war ef America waa the most potent factor
In the evolution of the newspaper of to
day. During that conflict the American
newspapers began, the use of the tele
graph for gathering news, they Illustrated
their despatches with drawings and maps,
and they learned how to write head-lines
and turn out extras.
The next great event, In the development
of the American press was the Spanish
American war. It wasn't much of war,
aa we see It now, but It seemed to be ths
blrgest thing In the world Just then.
And the newspapers did seemingly impos
sible things every day, which they have
oontinued to do every day since. The close
of the war didn't end the war journalism
at all. For the past decade there has been
little change in American newspapers ex
cept that they have shared In the won
derful growth of the nation.
If Mr. Bennett In 1840, when his paper
was five years old and a prosperous sheet,
with the facilities he than possessed, had
undertaken to publish the Sunday Herald
as it appeared last week his presses would
be running yet and the edition would not
be finished. Things progress rapidly In
these days in fact there has been more
progress In the newspaper business in the
last twenty years than there was In the
preceding ISO years since the birth of the
first daily newspaper. What wonders will
be developed in the next century no man
may say. It appears that war has a most
potent Influence upon Journalism. If there
shall be a great war in Europe what
then? What with aeroplanes having wire
less apparatus attached, with dirigible bal
loons, with wireless telephones and with
things not now unfolded to the gaze of
man, It Is a safe wager that the news
papers would set a new mark for them
selves and fill every "long-felt want."

BOYS ABUSE PEDDLERS WITH
BRICKS AND ARE TAKEN UP

and Leave Bad Sear on at
Long practice by , a gang of boys at
Eighteenth and Vinton streets In throwing
bricks and stones at peddlers has resulted
In two things marked accuracy of aim
and a vigorous determination by authori
ties to break up the practice. As a pre
liminary step, Floyd Baxter, 241Z 8outh
Twelfth street, and Herman Qernenflt,
Twelfth and Castellar, are In' the Detention
school awaiting hearing before the Juvenile
court. Another result of the practice Is
that Meier Goldman, a peddler, wears an
inch-long scar on his forehead, left after
he emerged from a hospital stay.
More feeling was shown In Juvenile court
over the cases of these boys and that of
Walter Pates, all members of a gang
which frequents the Vinton street corner,
than anything else in a long time, because
the boys admitted the peddlers have not
bothered them and that the rock throwing
Is through racial prejudice.
Judge Estelle, In discussing the matter,
called to mind the shooting dead of a boy
at exactly the same corner by an abueed
peddler some years ago.
The Pates boy, at the pleading of his
mother, was given another chance. Oer
nendt and Baxter, who are both 17 years
of age, will have their hearing next Mon
day. A half paving brick and a two-pound
