him by saying; that President Wilson

the President should have a position In

than half an hour, Frank Eale, 24 years

exciting chase across a residence sec

only after his ammunition had become
exhausted and his right leg had been
shattered by a bullet from the re

Figuring as the heroine of the battle
is Mrs. T. P. Sherman, wife of an em

turning to her home this afternoon, Mrs.
Sherman found the door open. Look
ing into the street she saw a suspicious
looking man hurrying away. She ran
after him, caught him by the coat
and accused him of having robbed her
residence. While she was talking to
the man, Richard Hughes and Henry
Smith, two plain clothesmen of the
police force, approached and took the
accused stranger into custody. Led by
Mrs. Sherman the officers escorted their
prisoner back to the house.

While Mrs. Sherman was examining
the rooms to see what had been stolen,
she heard a scuffling in the hall. The
prisoner had slugged his captors with
a blackjack. Seizing a small ironing
board Mrs. Sherman attacked the
burglar, striking him over the head. He
fled, hatless, and the two detectives
started in pursuit. As they ran from
the house, the fleeing man opened fire
Reserves were called for and rein
forcements were sent from the Park
police station. Armed citizens joined
in the chase. Block by block, the
burglar was followed until he was
swallowed up in the denisty of the

he took his stand. The streets were
cleared and the fight continued.

were answered by occasional replies
from the hunted man's revolver. . At

crept, to where he lay, badly wounded
and semi-conscious. He was taken to

HOUSES SEE BITTER FIGHT
Governor Declines Speaker's Invita
tion to Hear Speech and Executive
Is Assailed as "TJngentleman-.
ly and Undignified."
OLYMPIA, Wash, March .(Spe
cial.) Declaring: in no uncertain lan
guage that he Is ready to leave the
Governor's mansion for a private resi
dence unless he could have a few hours
of "privacy to which every public cltl
sen is entitled," Governor Lister, in a
message today, styled members of the
Washington Legislature "as "ruffians,
hoodlums and window tommies."
It was a fiery fight between mem
bers of the legislature and the execu
tive on the floor of the Senate and In
the Rouse. The Republican control of
both houses was denounced as pro
moters of unfair trades and deals, and
the entire Leglslatre was denounced as
the most extravagant Legislature this
state has ever had.
The Governor in turn was flayed by
Speaker Taylor, of the House, as un
gentlemanly and undignified, and by
others as Insincere and unfair. Mr.
Taylor. In a heated address, publicly
declared that the Governor had In
sulted the members of both houses and
should apologize. The Governor paid
his compliments to the Speaker by re
fusing to appear in the House to hear
his address, although he had been par
ticularly invited by the Speaker to at
tend. The light centered for the most part
around the crusade of Friday night, in
which Chief Clerk Maybury, of the
House, and Representative McArdle, of
Jefferson County, directed by Speaker
Taylor and others, tried to force their
way into the executive mansion to de
liver a $1,800,000 road budget bill, but
were thwarted by the clever maneu
vers of Mrs. Lister.
Day's Business Paralysed.
The fuss paralyzed the business of
the two houses during the entire day.
The trouble started at 11 o'clock, when
the Governor sent notice to the Senate
that In 15 minutes he would appear be
fore that body with a message vetoing
the bill passed five . days ago by the
Legislature Including the -public high
way road levy of $1,000,000 a year.
Scenting the climax of a bitter fight
which has been brewing for a week or
more between the Governor and the
House and Senate control, a move was
made to invite the House to attend the
session, but the move failed upon vote.
Despite this fact, when the Governor
appeared In the Senate the House ad
journed, and the members all rushed
into the Senate chamber to see the
The Governor did not officially recog
nize the House members, addressing
the Senate alone. He had prepared a
lengthy message containing a veto of
the road bill, which he proceeded to
read, while the assemblage which
packed the gallery and the chamber

lessly. In the center of his message he

NEW TORK, Maroh 8. Seventeen
tubercular patients were treated by Dr.
Frlederich F. Friedmann with the vac
cine which he asserts Is a cure for
tuberculosis at a private clinio late to
day. Announcement that this clinic had
been held was made tonight by the
Berlin physician after It had been
known that further tests of his treat
ment, which were to have been made
today at the People's Hospital, the
scene of his demonstrations on Thurs
day, had been, abandoned. Meanwhile,
it was understood. Dr. Friedmann was
preparing for a meeting tomorrow with
Government health officials from Wash
ington, by whom tests of his treatment
are to be conducted.
Consultation Is Within Law.
Tonight's announcement said that the
demonstration this afternoon took
place in the offices of physicians in
the presence of a score or more of the
medical men, many of whom had
brought patients with them. Dr.
Friedmann It was said, " acted as a
consulting physician and therefore
abided by the law which provides
against, practice of the profession with
out a license.
Of the cases treated " 11 were of
pulmonary tuberculosis, two of tuber
culosis of the knee, two of the kidney,
and bladder, one of the hip and one of
the glands. Of the physicians present
several were from distant states. Dr.
E. C. Thrash, a specialist In tubercu

who witnessed the demonstration, said
the clinio had progressed smoothly,
that there was little delay In treating
the patients and that the technlo in

Most of the patients were asked to
come back In ten days.
"All the cases," Dr. Thrash said,
"were moderately well, advanced."
"One of the knee cases." Dr. Harry
Benjamin, Dr. Friedmann' s assistant,
said, "was interesting In view of the
fact that the physician who had the
case in charge is a well-known special
ist on tuberculosis of the knee, and
had decided that an Immediate opera
tion was necessary on the knee joint."
Whether the Government tests would
take place tomorrow or on Monday,
before Dr. Friedmann leaves for Mon
treal for demonstrations there, had ap
parently not been decided tonight.
Dr. Friedmann declared himself ready
to meet the officials. Inoculate patients
for them, explain his treatment, and
