Ferocious Animal, on Gaining His
Fneiora, Slays Girl and Pony
and Sods the Crowd in
All Directions Oth
Twin Falls, Haho, Miy 25.
Daring the afternoon performance
of the Sells-Fiota ci o is in Twin
Falls today, a huge BeDgal tiger
broke from his cage in the menage
rie tent and charged into the crowd
killing a four-year-old girl, Shet
land pony and mauling several oth-
!er spectators and pemes before it
was ehot and Killed Dy a man in me
audience. For a few moments a
panic was threatened in the merag
erie. Women screamed and faint
ed, the elephants tagged at their
chains and trumpeted wildly and
there was great commotion until
the tiger rolled over dead in front
of the main entrance.
: "MarkeJ," the tiger, and bis mate
"Agnes," had . been restless lor some
time before the accident. They were
about to be fed, and at the sight of
the meat, "Marker brat furiously
with his paws on the door of the
case. The doer gave way and the
tiger sprang from bis cage to the
neck of a Shetland Pony 15 feet
away. The animal's keeper seized
an iron bar and struck . the tiger
between the eyes.
"Marker released bis grip on the
pony d necK ana leaped upon tne
back of anotter nouy. Again Ibe
keeper fell him with the Iron, -and
be relinquished his hold on the sec
ond pony, only to seize a third.
Another stiff blow from the iron
drove the tiger from hi; prey and
he leaped into the crowd.
The tent was well filled and the
people fled in all direction, mcst of
them crowding out under the can
vas. One woman scrambled to the
top of an rn'mal cage and refused
to come down until lorg after the
tiger was killed.. Shrill trumpetings
from the frightened elephants arous
ed the keepers to renewed activity.
The guns kept by the keepers for
emergencies were 75 feet away, and
had they been available they could
not have been uaed on account of
danger to spectators.
Women grasped their children
and dragged them from the path of
the maddened tiger. Hundreds of
little children clung to the skirts of
their tei rifled mother, and "Mark
el" headed for the main entrance,
4O feet away. In bis rush he struck
several people with bis shoulder?,
knocking m ra down.
Mr?. S: E. R z 11, of Twin Falls,
and her '"little, daughter, Ruih,
could dot escape tte, tiger's rush
and wore borne to the ground. The
tiger held Mr?. Rtzrll with his
paws while his tangs sarik into the
neck tf the child. J. W. Bell, a
Twin Falls Blacksmith, was ttaud
ing beside Mrs. Rozell when she
was attacked. His wife and chil
dren were with him and at the
mercy of the beast.
Thrusting his family aside Bell
drew a 32-caliber revolver and op
ened fife on the tiger at a distance
Although 19 iudi tments were
placed on tile, the grand jury has
14 more on its eecret file, which it
will shortly make public. The case
against the United Railroads has
been one or tbe most bumitg m the
battle against the grafters, but it
has been worked up with an exact
ness that has startled the entire
city. It was the tightening web of
evidence in this caae that drove
Abe Ruef to a concession and with
the testimony of Ruef the indict
ment of Calhoun came as a matter
The prosecution has traced the
$200,OCU with which 'the United
Rauroal secured its franchise from
Wa'l strset to the Sin Francisco
Mat immediately after the big fire
in April, 1906, wbea the Mint w s
used for banking purposes. There
the motey remained for a few days,
when it was drawn out in piece meal
in'ktj of $50,000 converted into
currency ana paid over, to Ruef and
by him passed on th the mayor and
supervisors. - The evidence is
strengthened by bits of conversa
tion, records of conference at "the
office of Tirep L. Ford, attorney for
the United Rialroads. The fact
tbat the mayor received $00,000 for
signing the ordinance granting the
overhead-trolley permit was learned
through the testimony of Ruef.
Fourteen indictments were re
turned charging Calhorw, Mullvlly,
Ford- Abbott, Scbuiitz and Ruef'
jointly with, the bribery of the eu-
pervivors. b.venteen supervisors
were bribed, eo it may therefore be
s:en that three of the indictments
will act as a sort of advance guard
to draw the fire of ths defense.
If the defe.ee succeeds in shoot
ing any holes in them, the three in
reserve will be altered to make them
impregnable, Uking advantage of
the facts, brought out. However,
all of the indictments filed today
show a moit careful attention to all
the details, and leading lawyers to
night pronounced them perfect. "
The brunt of the fight of the de
fense will fall upon Calhoun, who
has already enlisted the services of
Moiitz Rosenthal, the Stadarin Oil
attorney . of . Chicago . and
Earl Rogers, the : best
known attorney of Los Ange'ee.
Calhoun is prepared to spend the
last cent of bis vast fortune to de
feat the prcsccution.
California is lookiog ahead to one
of the greatest legal battles in the
history of the r a.ion. :
