AT CITY HALL AS
HEATER BLOWS UP
Employes of Building Rush to
Open Air; Two Are Injured;
Third Time for
A gas ,'ieater in a lavatory on the
first flexor of the city hall exploded
yesterday with such force that the
noise and shock were felt in adjoin
ing buildings. ,
Ed Shavlik and Fritz Buck, of the
city engineering department, were in
the room at the time, but escaped in
jury. Sfiavlik was thrown to the floor
and his face blackened and aside from
a nervous shock he came out of the
affair on both feet. v
Windows were blown out of the
lavatory and the gas heater was
wrecked. This is the third explosion
which has occurred while lighting this
heater. The pilot light was extinguish
ed and the neater had filled with gas
whtfn Shavlik applied a lighted match.
Harry Primeau. deputy city clerk,
was the victim of the first explosion
and Harry Stroesser, city hall carpen
ter, was injured on the occasion of the
second explosion, both within the last
six months. '
The gas heater was installed in con
nection with the recent remodeling
of the city hall and had been used for
heating .water used in some of the
offices. A sign of warning had been
posted by the city hall superintendent.
The city hall vibrated when the ex
plosioncaused employes to rush out
into the halls. The noise was heard
in The Bee building:
Not Bootleg Whisky.
The first thought of some of the
city hall habitues was that the city
commissioners had started the spring
campaign with a salute. Another first
theory was that a bottle of bootleg
whisky being held in the municipal
court as evidence had exploded.
The surprise of the incident was the
ni-rrow escape of Shavlik from injury.
He was able to go to a washstand un
attended and remove the smudge from
Superintendent Wahlstrom of the
city hall will put the excitable heater
under lock andjey.

RAIL MEN FACE BIG
TASK, SAY EXPERTS
Lining Up of Passenger Sched

Word, comes from Chicago in
dicating that the lining up of the
passenger schedules to meet sug
gestions of Directpr General Mc
Adoo relative to V reduction of
train service, without greatly im
pairing its efficiency is a larger
task than the experts anticipated
when they tackled it.
Monday it was stated that the re
arranged schedule would be ready for
adoption the latter part of this week,
but now information comes from Chi
cago that no attempt will be made to
put into effect the new schedules un
til Sunday, January 20. By that time
it is expected to have the service,
lined up and the time cards in the
hands, of all railroad men and the pub
lic. , , . .
Railroad passenger officials back

ings being held there are bringing
together the greatest galaxyof rail
road traffic men who have ever as
sembled. While the meeting is one
of the roads of the central division,
it is also being attended by repre
sentatives of practically all the lines
in the United States.
While only the high spots have
been touched in the matter of work
ing out schedules that will, apply to
the operlttion of passenger trains all
over the country, returned railroad
men assert that whatever is the final
outcome of the meeting, the comfort
and convenience of the traveling pub
lic, will be constantly Ttept in mind.
It i3 anticipated that a good many
trains will be pulled off, but where
this is done the schedule will be so
arranged that close connections will
be made with the trains of other roads
at all junction points.
