VICTIM OF FIRE
Flames Believed To Have Been
Started By Rats Caused
Kccxy Loss Last Night.
START IN "OLD HOSS" ROOM
Total Damage To Building And
Contents Is Estimated At
Ten Thousand Dollars.
Fire believed to have been started
by rats and breaking out in the "old
boss" room of the building on Craven
street occupied by the Southern Ex
press Company, shortly after 7 o'clock
last night, caused damage which is
estimated at ten thousand dollars.
The fire was discovered by S, L
Dill, Jr., as he was parsing the office
at about twenty minutes past seven
o'clock. Mr. Dill saw ;moke issuing
from the building and at once gave the
alarm. A general alarm was rent in
and the entire fire fighting force of the
city was on the s ene vithin a few minu
tes and combatting the flames.
When the first company arrived the
entire interior of the rear end o' the
express office was enveloped in flames
wheh were leaping from the old hoss
;oom In which was stored hundreds of
nflainable articles. Great cloud; of
smkoe srushed forth and made the
work of the firemen doubly difficult
but they realized that if the build ng
was to b saved it must be done quick
ly and they soon had several streams of
water pouring on the blaze and within
half an hour had it under control
Thousands, of gallons of water were
thrown into the building arfd the floor
reminded one of a small pond but the
use of a great quantity of water was
said to be necessary. Adjacent to
the "old hoss" ioom was a room
which the company's records, valued
at several thousand dollars, were stored
These were not badly damaged by the
fire but were damaged by water. The
contents of the "old hoss" room were
valued at about two thousand dollars

Schenectady, N. Y., April 28. In
this city of Socialist government the
paid officeholders find themselves con
fronted by a demand that they share
their salaries with their pa ty organi
zat on.
The demand, coming from a powerful
element in the party, is putting political
Socialism to a severe test and may
prove fatal t3 if. The effect of the de
mand will be felt at the mumciapl
election next November, when the rank
and file of the Socialist party may vote
for Mayor R. Lunn, who is a candidate
for renomination and is bitterly op
posed to dividing his $3,500 salary
with any person or organization.
The demand for a division of salaries
was started by Charles W. Wood, editor
of th Citizen, the weekly paper found
ed by Rev. Dr. Lunn, the present
Mayor. Mr. Wood ran as a Socialist
for State Senator last fall, was brought
here by Dr. Lunn to edit the paper,
which is now published by a stock
comoanv. in which Dr. Lunn is the
controlling element.
An ardent supporter of the idea that
Mayor Lunn should divide his ealaiy is
Robert A. Bakeman, who resigned as
assistant pastor of Dr. Lunn's church,
to become foreman of a gang of street
cleaners at $2.50 a day, because he
could better uplift humanity in that
way. Witn tne editor ot nis own paper
and his former assistant pastor trying
to make his split his salary, and the
two opponents backed by a majority
of the members of the leading Socialist
organization. Dr. Lunn is in an amusing
predicament. However, he is supported
by nearly all the city.
The total of the yearly salaries of
$1,000 or more is $45,695. There are
enough Socialist city employes drawing
from ,$2 50 to $4 a day to increase the
total divisible iindcr the demand to
$60,000 a year and, with the exception
of Bakeman, evaryone of them is op
posed to sharing his income with any
one else. But the $2-a-day street
cleaners and ,a majority of the So
cialists not on the city payrolls favor
the division. The majority of the
Social ts Aldermen, who draw $500
a year each, are in favor of division.

Johnson has been employed as chauf

and is known by the men in the local
garages. Sunday afternoon he called
at Sledge's garage on South Front street
and told the young man in charge of
the place that he bad been sent after
R. J. Russell's automobile. The garage
man thought it rather unusual for Mr.
Russell to send a colored man after
his machine but regardless of this, let
Johnson take the car from the garage
A short time later Mr. Russell called
at the' garage for his auto, intending' to
take a ride out in the country. Then
it was that the garage men discovered
that the owner had not sent Johnson
after the machine. Without" losing any
time they set out jn search of Mr.
Russell's machine and scoured the
country for several mles arounei out.
no trace of it could be found.
Late Sunday night word was received
that the machine had been abandoned
near Rhem's station. In the meantime
the police had been notified of the
affair and were on the watch for John
