William Edelman Twice Snaps
Trigger of Revolver, at
Herman Carlson.
Patrolman Knocks Him Down "With
His iClub and Angry Crowd
Surges About, Threatening
Carlson for His Act.
"When "William Edelman drew a revol
ver from his hip picket, pressed the muz
zle against Patrolman. Carlson's abdo
men and pulled the trigger, scores of
spectators In the Plaza block thought they
were about to witness a murder. Twice
was the weapon snapped. Then the police
man laid his assailant low by a powerful
blow from a club.
Edelman dropped his revolver. It was
seized by R. H. Price, an expressman,
just as Sheriff "Word rushed up. An ex
amination of the weapon proved it to be
Edelman soon regained his feet. There
was a closing-ln of the eye-witnesses to
Patrolman Herman X.. Carlson.
the struggle, and some of the crowd that
surged about cried out against Patrolman
Carlson, charging him with cruelty.
Slieriff "Word and Air. Price turned to
the crowd, explaining that the policeman
had been attacked by Edelman with a
revolver, and most of the people quieted
down. There were some, however, who
made a demonstration, following the po
liceman and his prisoner to police head
quarters, where they complained to Cap
tain Gritzroacher, commanding the day
patrol. They charged tKat Carlson used
undue force, but when the patrolman
made his statement he was upheld In the
action by the Captain and ordered back
to his beat.
There may bo further trouble, it is
said, as some of Edelmcn's friends de
clare ho was mistreated. A charge of
disorderly conduct was lodged against the
prisoner and he was placed in a cell of
the City Jail. He will be arraigned today
before Municipal Judge Hogue.
"I found Edelman sleeping off a drunk
on the grass in the Plaza block," said
Patrolman Carlson. "I tapped him on
the soles of his shoes and he leaped up.
applying many vile eplthots to roe, and
making ready to fight. I cautioned him
to move on and avoid trouble, as I thought
he was merely intoxicated. To my sur
prise he drew out a -revolver and pressed
the muzzle to my abdomen. I beard him
snap the trigger and. tried to take the
weapon from nlm. I thought if he snapped
it again I would be killed. I then re
sorted to my plub to knoc,k him down.
I thought, of course, the revolver was
loaded, and I think if I had drawn my
revolver and shot him I would have been
George "Wickland, who rooms at 32 St
George Hotel, was an eye-witness of the
affair. He declares that Carlson treated
Edelman so roughly that he -was justi
fied in using any means to protect him
self. He states that Edelman was asleep
on the grass and the policeman tapped
him on the feet to awaken him. This
not bringing immediate effect, the po
liceman grasped Edelman by the collar
and threw him violently backwards.
Edelman, ' still only half a.wake and
stunned, swore at Carlson slightly and
at that Carlson began to beat him with
his billy over the head. "Wickland called
on him to desist, but Carlson continued,
and Edelman drew a revolver from his
pocket and attempted to shoot. The po
liceman escaping began even harder to
belay his victim till the bystanders "were
afraid he would break his head.
In the scuffle one of Carlson's fingers
was badly hurt. Edelman was- uninjured,
although he claims to have been beaten
into insensibility. He is a waiter in a
North End restaurant.
J. R. Havely Sued for Carrying Off
70,000 Feet of Immber.
J. K. Havely, of Brooklyn, finds him
self defendant in a lawsuit in Justice
"Walderaar Seton's court for the sum of
$250, alleged to be due in a complaint filed
by J. C. Burke, charging him with ap
propriating 70,000 feet of lumber. It is
set forth in tho complaint that Mr. Have
ly did "unlawfully take and appropriate
to his own use 70,000 feet of lumber stored
on vacant ground between East Tenth
and Eleventh streets, in November, 1904."
Mr. Havely in his answer contents him
self with a sweeping denial of every alle
gation in the complaint, and demands that
the case against him be dismissed, with
costs and disbursements of the suit. The
case will bo tried out today.
It seems that Plaintiff Burke stored a
quantity of second-hand lumber from
some old buildings on grounds owned by
J. A. Strowbridge, Jr., and the latter in
an act of charity and goodness of heart,
similar to that displayed by Artemus
"Ward when he said he was willing to
sacrifice ail his wife's relatives to save
the Union, posted a notice on this pile of
lumber, "Free wood." Inasmuch as wood
costs money, this notice appealed very
strongly to the attention of Mr. Havely
and possibly many others, and the lum
ber slowly disappeared, and hence Mr.
Burke wants damages.
