Chicago, Dec. 28 — George E. Den-
j mark, 7 years old, was killed by a
trolley-car at Troop and Eightienth
j streets, this afternoon. Fred Bernier,
[ motorman, was threatened with lynoh-
| ing, for killing the boy, and was with
! great difficulty
mob of Bohemians, who, inoeused at
the terrible aocident, surrounded the
car and dragged Bernier from the plat-
¡form, determined to hang him. Patriok
[ Hanley, the conductor, managed to
save Bernier from the mob, and then a
| riot call was s«ut to the Maxwell street
station. The police took charge of the
motorman and conductor and locked
j them up.
After the boy had been killed, Motor-
j man Bernier took refuge in the car,

the aocident occurred, and in an in-
staut it was beseiged by angry men.
| He attempted to keep them out by
latching the doors on the inside, but
they broke the doors in, knooked him
down and kioked and beat him for a
[ few moments in a shocking manner.
He managed, however, to get away
from them, and ran to the door of the
drugstore, where he was handed a pis
tol, and was admitted inside by Mr.
Kvitek, the proprietor, before any
further barm befell him. The crowd
