13S ANGELES, Nov. 19. Armed with
tin Infernal machlno containing enough
dynamite to'destroy nn entire city block,
a bottlo of nitroglycerin and a .45-cnllber
rovplvcr, a masked maniac took posses
sion of the central police station today
and held It for moro than an hour, -while
the Hundreds of occupants of tlio building
and thoso for blocks around, panic
stricken, sought the safety of distance.
When Detective James Iloslck knocked
the man unconscious with a leather billy
after slipping behind him, the fuso of the
Infernal machine whs automatically
Ignited, and, without thinking of the
consequence, Detective Samuel I Browne
oarrledtho box outside, tho fuso splutter
ing and spitting sparks, and hurled It Into
tho street. Sticks of high power dyna
mite scattered over tho pavement, while
hundreds of spectators stood apparently
paralyzed by fright, awaiting the detona
tion that would send them Into eternity.
Through' a freak of chance thero was no
explosion and Browne continued kicking
tho Btlcks of dynamite and Jumping on
tho fuso until he had broken tho conncc
Hons and extinguished the. flro.
Lying manacled to u cot In tho receiving
hospital tonight the would-be dynamiter,
who gave his natno as Albert Henry
Lewis, Is suffering with several severe
scalp wounds, but tho police surgeons say
that his injuries aro not serious.
First TliouKlit to He Joker.
Davis entered the outer room of Chief
of Police Sebastian's office at 11 o'clock
this morning. His face and head were
completely covered with a grotesque mask
and ho carried In his arms a large box
covered with cloth. The lox was strapped
around his shoulders and resembled a
small hand organ.
First' startfoa1 W?u tlien amused by the
strange spectacle, Pollco Sergeant It- O.
Hllf, who sdspected a practfcaT ke?
asked tho man what he wanted.
"I'YO got enough dynamite in here to
blow us alt Into eemlty." ho said, "and
I want you to send for tho highest offi
cial of the Southern Pacific railroad."
Tho masked visitor rested tho box on a
filing cabinet and Assistant District At
torney n. O. Graham, who . was in tho
office, started Joking with' him.
"This Is no Joke," said Davis. "I mean
business, and if you don't believe try to
take this away from me. My hand is
fastened in this box and if I pull It out
bang! Wo all die."
A hole had been cut In the box and the
occupants of the room saw for the first
time that tho man's left hand was hid
den In the box.
Wnntu to Mow Up Head Man.
They began to realize, that it was no
Joke. Davis then walked Into the office
of Police Secretary C. B. Snlvely, which
opens into tho private office of Chief Se
bastian, and repeated his request that tho
head official of the Southern Pacific be
summoned. Snlvely nBked him if he had
any proferenco In the man he desired to
blow up, and he replied that ho only
wanted tho head man.
Snlvely then took down the telephone
receiver and pretended to hold ' a con
versation with Paul Shoup, general man
ager of the Pacific Electric company.
"Mr. Shoup is busy, but )ie will bo hero
in about fifteen minutes;" said Snlvely.
"Well, he'd better hurry," replied Davis,
"I'm getUng nervous."
In the meantime Chief Sebastian, who
had a brief conversation with the man
und realized that he was In earnest
ordered the .street roped off for a block
either way and took steps to havo tho
100 prisoners In th eclty Jail removed.
Upstairs In the building two Justices'
courts were In session and both court
rooms were crowded.
A detective passed tho word to a bailiff
In Judge Chambers' court, where a
Japanese was having a preliminary ex
amination on a murder charge beforo a
crowd of his countrymen. The bailiff
whispered to the Judge.
Judicea Adjourn Court.
"Court's adjourned until 2 p. m. Clear
the court room," ordered tho Judge
promptly, and there was a rush for the
stairway. A similar scene was enacted
In Justice Frederlckson's court.
There were not sufficient patrol wagons
to remove the prlioners from the Jail
to the Boyle Henshts prison and two
street cars were sent for. U was an
orderly procedure and the prisoners were
soon on their way to the east side,
guarded by the reserves, who had been
called out.

Tho Jury which has been hearing tho cvl
donco against the four gunmen no de
cided today when it returned ugalnst
them a verdict of murder in the first do
grfeo after but twenty minutes of delibera
tion Like Becker, the gunmen heard tho ver
dict pronounced against them without
aovJ of emotion. They stood at. tho bar
looking straight ahead ns tho foreman of
the Jury rose to make known tho results
of its deliberations and they continued to
starts stolidly in front of them until tho
formnlltlos of the proceedings were con
cluded. Remanded to their cells In tho Tombs
until tomorrow morning, when Justice
Goff will fix the duy for Imposing sen
tence, they turned and filed- out of tho
court room with as firm a step us when
they first entered.
"Whltey" Lewis, who was tho most dra
matic of tho four when ho testified on
tho witness stand, alono walked with
head bowed.
An they entered tho door leading over
the bridge of sighs "Gyp" said something
to "Lefty" In a sullen undertone tyhlch

faced wife, "Lefty's Lillian," an fihie.,hi
called, wept on the shoulder of her liW
band's father, who vnlnly tried fto com-'!
fort her, for tho verdict was quickly
flashed from tho court room to tho wall
ing crowds without'. "Gyp's" wife, known
as "Gyp's Lillian," received tho news In
tho house of detention. Tho two other
gunmen are unmarried.
Appeal to lie Taken.

counsel for tho gunmen, announced that
ho would appeal front tio vordlct and, as
In tho oaso ,of Becker, months may. elupsq

Although tho jury was actuslly out of
tho court roorrt an hour and flvo minutes
It was but twenty minutes after their
retirement thnt word reached the clerk
of the court that they had arrived at a
verdict. ThlB was at 1:55 o'clock, but
Justice Goff was at lunch and he did not
return until three-quarters of 'an hour
The final daiiof the trial opened with
Justice Goff's charge to the Jury, which
occupied three hours. The charge empha
sized many points in the testimony of the
cunmen which the prosecution In Its sum
ming up had declared were discrepancies
fatal to the credibility of their stories.
"If the defendants' contention were truo
thnt Rose and his companions, Webber,
Vallon and- Schepps, shot Itosenthal,
would he havo Invited them around to
the Mctropole hotel to the scene of tho
shooting?" Judge Goff asked tho Jury.
"Did the defendants tell the truth when
they tald they aw Itosenthal shot, and
.ero near enough to distinguish the faces
of those who did the shooting, but did
not see Rosenthal fall? Was the testi
mony of the threo defendants In support
of the alibi of 'Dugo Frank' interposed by
prearrangemont?" he asked.
