Barker Block Elevator

The elevator in the Barker block,
southwest corner of Fifteenth and
Farnam streets, fell ten feet yester
day evening with Operator Henry
Brown and two passengers aboard.
None were seriously injured, though

shock to his nerves. Charles J. John
son, building contractor, coming from
the rooms of the Builders' exchange,
sixth floor, was badly shaken up, but
suffered no evil consequences. Dr.
Keim has been a sick man for some
months and has but recently come
out of the hospital. He is still very
weak and nervou9 and the shock
proved almost too much for him. The
city building inspector has inspected
the elevator a number of times in the
last several weeks. Members of the
Builders' exchange feel the elevator
should be condemned now and the
installation of a new one forced.
