a Tented criticism by Chief ot Follco
L. A. W. Nixon ns to tho service
Klven by tho gnrnge which hns chnrga
o( tho city Are equipment, was given
today ns tho sequel to tho flro which
last night destroyed tho homo ot
James Dottroll In Park addition. Tho
blazo started from unknown cnuses
while Mr. Dottroll was attending tho
Shrlno party at tho Masonic temple.
Insurance covered tho building, but
tho furnlturo wns a total loss.
According to Mr. Nixon, M. D.
Enloo, proprietor ot tho Modern
Garage, whero tho tiro truck Is kept
could not bo reached by tolophono
calls Bent In by peoplo living near the.
Bottrcll house, for thirty minutes
after tho flro broke out. After tho
truck finally arrived, Mr. Nixon
eays, tho hoso was found to bo too
short and tho gnrago man wns ord
ered to wait at tho sccno ot tho flro
until more could bo procured. In
stead of this, however, tho truck was
driven back to tho garage, tho driver
refusing to return to tho flro after
Mr. Nixon had procured ISO feot
moro hose. Another driver was
found at Inst, tho poss'iblo spread of
tho flro provented and tho truck was
returned to tho garago nt 3 o'clock
this morning.
Sir. Enloo was Interviewed this
morning and stated that ho had mado
no agreement with the city to act as
driver for tho truck, having refused
to renew tho contract mado with
Jl. H. Dcyariuond when tho .garage
changed hands last spring . Ho de
clared -that when he had gono out
to tho flro last night ho had been
instructed by Chief of Police Nlxen
to remain until Night Officer Frank
Culp appeared, and that ho had fol
lowed his instructions. Afterward,
ho said, ho had been called up by Mr.
Kulp, who ordered him to bring tho
truck back to tho Are. Ills question
as to tho reason for tho order was

Coal dust to brentho and eat nnd sleep
Also, by this tlmo somo of tho men
hnd lost tholr lieiuln completely; In
fact, hnd gono violently entity, nnd tho
rest of us wero nfrrild of them. Wo
wero nit thinking of the light tlmt
might occur nny moment between tho
Ynrrowilnlo nnd somo other vessel nnd
we know wo wero III tho likeliest nlnw,
for the vessel to bo struck. Even
though we wero not hit amidships. If
th ship wero sinking wo did not think
tho Germans would give us u chnneo to
escape. Wo figured from what they
had Hald that wo would go down with
tho ship. And going down on u ship In
whtch you uro n prisoner Is qdlto dif
ferent from going down with one for
which you lmvo been righting. You
arrive nt the snmo pluco, but tho feel
ing Is different.
Some of us thought of overpowering
tho crow nnd tnklng tho vessel Into our
own hands, nnd wo got tho rest of
tho suno or nearly sane 'men together
nud tried to get up n scheme for doing
it. 1 wns Rtrong for tho plan nnd so
wero several others, hut tho Limey of
ficers who wero with m nd vised
ngnlnst It. They said the Germans'
wero. tnklng us to n neutral country,
whero wo would bo Interned, which
wns Just what tho Germans had told
us, but what few of uh believed.
Then somu others said Hint If we
started anything tho Germans would
lire tno time bombs. Wo replied thnt
at least tho Germans would go west
with us, but they could not seo thnt
there wns nny glory in thnt. For my
seir, i uiougnt tho Germans would not
flro tho bombs until tho Inst minute,
nnd thnt wo would hnvo n chnneo nt
tho bonts before they got all of us
nnywny. Thero wero only thirteen
German sailors on board, besides their
commander. This, last Hun was
named Badewltx.
So tho pacifist! ruled, because wu
could not do anything unless w were
nil together, nnd there wns no mutiny.
They Bald we were hotheads, tho rest
of us, but X still think wo could have
made u dash for It nnd ovirnnwiril
our sentries, nnd either gone over tho
sldo with the lifeboats, or taken over
tho whole ship. It would lmvo been
better for us If we had tried, nud If
tho pacifists had known what was
coming to us they would lmvo flred
tho time bombs themselves rnther
than go on Into tlmt future. How
ever, that Is fpllt milk.
Wo were not allowed to opcotho

In tho dark, In thnt stinking nlr, It Is
no wonde,r many of us went crazy.
Among us wns n fellow named Har
rington, nbout six feet tall nnd weigh
ing 250 pounds. IIo seemed to bo nil
right mentally, but somo of us
thought afterward ho wns crazy.
Anyway, I do not blame him for what
ho did. Harrington rushed up tho
flddley nnd opened the door. Thero
wns n German sentry there, nm Har
rington mado a swing at him and then
BndowlU, who begun mauling lilm be
fore tho sentry nven hnd told his
story. After n while Uadowlts quit
puuuumg tno cook, nntl listened to tho
sentry. Then Bndewlts said tho cook
had put n nolo. In thu dlxlo before ho
dropped It, so they bent him up again
and put him In Irons. After that they
sent tho rest ot tho cooks back, nud
would not let them on deck again.
They had plenty of ennned goods nnd
meat aboard, but they would nut gtvo
us nny.
Five of thu men worn Inirlixl nt urn
that day, Moro men wero milnir mnil
every minute, nnd It was n terrlblo

wo wero of tho others who kept still,

lumps of conl In their hands. Wo
got so wo would not go near each
other for fear wo wcro running Into u

anno collected ns near tho flddley ns
wo could, nnd wo would not let tho
others get near us, but shoved, them
back or shied lumps of conl nt them.
And every onco In n while somo ono
of us would begin to net queer. May
bo ho would let out n howl suddenly,
without nny warning. Or ho would
Just quit talking and begin to sneak

duty." They did It and I flew up tho
flddley. I never wanted to see that
stoke hole again.
I sneaked up to where the rest of
the fellows wero nnd tho iruards
drilled us Into No. 4 hold. There wns
nothing but ammunition In it They
battened the hatches down on ui.
which made tho hold waterproof. And
as that mado It practically airtight tho
only nlr the 580" of us got was through
the ventilators. That hold was cer
tainly foul.
They next day come of the men had
got cigarettes somewhere. In u few
minutes, they as well as tho rest had
lit up and wero puffing kwny in great
stylo. I divided a cigarette with an
other fellow. Beracmber, wo wero sit
ting und standing on ammunition nil
this time. It shows how much wo
cared whether school kept or not
The Germans saw tho sraoko com

wero crazy with fright A gang of

with whips.
They lined us up on deck and read

all around tho deck. Then they nut

Tho next day wo were sitting In tho
flddley getting warm when tho door
J opened and there was Budcwltz, Ho
'yelled "HerauMl" und began Hrlng nt
i us with n revolver, so wo beat It back
onto tho coul. Pretty soon tho door
opened ngnln. But It wns only a Ger
man sentry. Ho throw down n note.
It was written In English and read,
"Pick out eight men for cooks." So
wo picked out eight men from tho vn
rlous vessels and they went on deck
and rigged up u galley aft.
But wo did not recelvo any knives,
forks, spoons or nlutes. Tho first
meal wo got was nothing but macaro
ni, plied up on pieces of cardboard
boxes. Then wo appointed four men
to servo tho macaroni, nnd they got
uur )m-i'i's ui woou, mo cicanesc wo
could find, which was not very clean
at mat, ana tliey dug around In tho
macaroni und divided It up und put
it in our hands. Wo had to eat It
nftcr that from our grimy fingers.
Thoso who wcro helped first had to go
farthest back on tho coul to eat it,
and thotio who wero helped lust got
less, because tho dividers got moro
careful toward the end nnd cava
smaller portions.
But wo did not get macaroni -very
long. A cook from the Voltaire was
cleaning a copper dlxlo thnt tho mac
aroni had been cooked In, nnd ho was
holding It over I ho sldo when tho ves
sel rolled heavily, and dromx-d tho

We coald not tnko turns sleeping
and standing watch against tho crazy
men, becnuso when we talked nbout
it, wo agreed tlmt nono of us could
tell whether or not Uio sentries would
go crazy while on watch nnd hnvo tho
rest of us at their mercy. It was aw
ful to talk about going crazy In this
way, nnd to flguro that you yourself

Tho days passed llko thnt, with
nothing to do but suffer, and slarvo

later than an old skinner In our hunch
told us that wu had rounded-tho north

Finally, ono day, n lad yelled down
"Land!" and wo nil dovo for tho fld

could get near enough looked out, and

suddenly it got colder than over.
