San Francisco, July " 23. Police
have secured no tangible traces of
the person who left a timed suitcase
to explode on a downtown street cor
ner during a preparedness parade,
killing half a dozen persons and in
juring more than, forty others.
San Franciso, Cal., July 23. "It
looked as if the sidewalk went straight
up into the air," said Colonel Thoman
F. O'Neill, former sheriff of San Fran
cisco, who was io the line of march
ers, "until there , was a loud, terse
noise, lots of smoke and dust and criel
of wounded and shouts."
One police officer was standing
alongside his horse twenty-five feet
from the scene. Both were knocked
down by the explosion, the man fall
ing on top of .he animal. .
' Theories of the Police. : ,
Several theories were put forward
tonight by the police. One was that
the owner of the suitcase had intended
to set it out along the line of the pa
rade, but was delayed, and, knowing
the bomb was timed, left it standing
by the side of the saloon.
One of the marchers in the parade,
who was there when the bomb ex
ploded, but escaped, said:
"I was standing in a crowd right
near the point where the explosion
occurred. I whirled with the sound.
It was like tryinrr to dive through
tidal wave to get through the mass of
men, women and children that charged
toward me." ,
