Tells Hospital Attendants
They Were Playing With
Revolver Youthful Vic
tim Has Bullet in His Back.
On the steps of St. Agnes' Hospital
stood a tear-stained boy this morning
when the doorman nnswercd the bell.
When tho door swung open the boy, who
was neatly dressed, wiped his eyes nnd
"Can you tell mo how my cousin Joe
is getting along?"
After the frightened lad had been In
vited Into tho reception room ho Iden
tified himself as William Shields, 13 years
old, of 2211 Hicks street.
"Will Joe die, do you think?" asked
While several nurses o.nd attendants
were trying to comfort the boy, tho real
story as to what led up to his visit to
tho hospital was revealed. William told
his story Just like any other boy of his
ago would tell It. ..
"My cousin, Joe Shields, who lives nt
my house, and I wero playing last night
In the cellar, when we found a revolver
underneath a box. Wo began to play
with the revolver. Joe picked up a can
nnd placed it on n rhalr'nnd told mu
to shoot at It. I didn't know there was
n bullet In the gun. Joe was standing
hi the centre of the cellar and he told
me to fire. I pulled the trigger and then
Joe fell down. Tho bullet hit Joe In
stead of hitting tho can. Honest, I
wanted to hit the can. You can nsk Joe
and he will tell you that I am telling
tho truth."
Suddenly William got up from his chair
and snld:
"Say, can't 1 see Joseph for a little
while, and If you don't believe what I
nm telling vou, why you can nsk him."
One of the nurses led Willlnm upstairs
Into one of the wards. For a while Wil
liam stood In the ward looking at tho
faces of several youngsters. As ho turned
his head he raised his hand and shouted:
"There is Joe."
William rushed overN to a cot which
wns occupied by Joseph Shields, 13 years
old, of 2211 South Hicks street, suffering
from a bullet wound In the back. Joseph
was conscious.
"Old I mean to shoot you?" asked
"No, you didn't," answered Joseph.
The wounded boy was brought to the
hospital late last night by his parents.
After tho shooting William kept the
affair to himself for more thnn an hour.
Ho tried Ills best to treat his cousin. Ho
left the wounded boy In tho cellar and
make several visits there. Then he be
came scared nnd confessed what had
Physicians nt St. Agnes Hospital said
tills morning that Joe has a chance to
recover. The pollco of the Fifteenth street
nnd Snyder avenue station first heard of
the shooting this morning. They are
conducting an Investigation.

Claimant of Sum Left From Sale
Must Explain Secrecy.
Another chapter In the eventful his
tory of the nteam yncht Idler will bo
written Thursday, when nil persons hav
ing claims agnlnst the vessel arc Invited
to present them to Francis M. Gumbes,
an attorney with offices In tho Pcnn
Square Building. Mr. Gumbes has been
appointed commissioner by the Admiral
ty Court to Investigate all claims.
Six years ngo the case of the Idler
stirred this port as did tho trials and
tribulations of Admiral Henjamln Watt
nnd the Haytlen navy. The vessel was
brought hero from the St: ,1-o.wrcnco
Hlver by Captnln I... O. Davis to meet
prospective buyers. The buyers failed
to appear nnd the owners wero lost In a
hnsse. The crew became Impatient for
their wages nnd -when these wore not
forthcoming, they presented their case
to tho United States District Attorney.
Ho carried It before the Admlrntty Court
nnd tho idler was ordered sold by tho
United States Mnrshall. Prior to the
sale futile attempt was made to discover
the craft's owners
Henry H. Harding, of this city, wns
the purchaser. After the claims of tho
crew and the expenses of the snle had
been deducted a considerable sum was
left. This was turned back to tho United
Stntes Court, where It has remained.
Now a claimant for the sum appears In
the person of Owen G. Staples, of Wash
ington, D. C. He claims lie was the
original owner of the yncht, and Is en
titled to the money. He will tell on
Thursday why he did not acknowledge
this fact six years ago.
Tho Idler has changed hands several
times since nnd her whereabouts nrp not
known here.
j Structure Will Be Erected nt Thlr
I teentli nnd Snyder Avenue.
I A new pubtlc school to supply the needs
I of one of downtown's most rapldlv grow
ing sections Is soon to rise on the site
occupied by car barns at 13th street and
Snyder avenue. This was decided after
nn Investigation by Francis S Cantrell,
Jr., James M. Hazlctt and J. Parker
Norrls, Jr., constituting a board of road
viewers. These filed a report yesterday
awarding $150,000 for the site.
It Is expected that the Frankford and
Southwnrk City Passenger Railroad Com
pany, to whom $M.000 of the award will
go. and the Thirteenth and Fifteenth
Streets Passenger Rnllroad Companv,
which Is to receive the remaining $100,000,
will nccept the price set for the ground.
The car barns were built many years
ago when Snyder avenue marked the
farthest southern part of Philadelphia's
building line. Since then thousands of
houses have been erected below this
street and the population has Increased
to such an extent that additional school
facilities aro badly needed.

Chinaman Knocked Unconscious De
spite Alleged Use of Blackjack.
Fully a score of disgruntled customers
gathered In front of the laundry of Zing
Wnng, nt Belgrade and Clearfield streets
this morning, and loudly demanded their
shirts and collars. But Wang had
troubles of his own and was meditating
upon them In a cell of the Belgrade and
Clearfield streets police station. Just
across the street from his laundry.
The Chinaman, according to the pollco,
attacked Dennis SIcGovern, of 2S40 Miller
street, with a blackjack and In the fight
that followed McGovern, It Is declared,
knocked Wnng unconscious.
For some unknown rcaton McGovern
was sent to the central polloe station for
a hearing Instead of being tried beforo
Magistrate Campbell at the station house.
Tho Magistrate Is a perbount friend of
McGovern's, and It is possible that Lieu
tenant Hamilton sent the prisoner to
City Hall for reasons of his own. Tho
lieutenant would not discuss the subject.
McGovern was sent to Moynmenslng
Prison by Magistrate Itenshaw In de
fault of ball. He wns in jail two days
beforo his liberation. This morning Mc
Govern was released and swore out a
waitunt for tho arrest of Wang on the
charge of assault and battery. Wnng
had n hearing beforo Mngistrnto Camp
bell. Ho wns held In $300 ball for court.

Philadelphia Is to have a renl New
Year's Parade this year. That is the de
termination of tho South Philadelphia
Business Man's Association, whose mem
bers feel that the city should take every
possible advantage of this phase of ad
vertisement, particularly since the
European war has tended to depress
business conditions here. It Is believed
a New Year's celebration which would
attract nation-wide nttentlon and Interest
would materially advance tho prosperity
of Philadelphia business, and any seeming
extravagance In the purchasing of cos
tumes for the event would be an Invest
ment amply repaid by the results.
Thu numerous clubs nnd organizations
which compose the smaller units of the
New Year parade have already begun to
mnbnllze their forces, and the spirit of
rivalry, which Is always keen between
thorn Is quite manifest even nt this
early day. Kach leader is planning nnd
scheming for features which will draw
distinction upon his particular organiza
tion n the form of przes.
These features are guarded Jealously,
for each fears a rival may tako ad
vantage of tho Idea and produco some
thing oven more blzarie.
An effort to uilvertlso tho celebration
nil over the United States nnd to provide
proper transportation facilities for those
who will visit the city at that time Is
being mado by a committee under the
lendershlp of Robert Alkcn, nnd through
their efforts and those of the local or
ganizations, It is believed that Philadel
phia will witness n celebration on De
cember 31 that will surpass anything of
the kind that has been produced In till:

Policeman Watches Lantern's Zig

It is generally agreed that there are
lots of honest men In Germnntown, but
George Duckit, of Youngstown, Ohio,
who started out to find one early this
morning, a la Diogenes, had to be sat
isfied with Policeman Kenny, who Is
equal to any emergency.
Kenny saw n red light moving down
Qhelten avenue. Ho noticed that it took
M zigzag course and wns convinced It
ftiuld not be a police patrol. He hid in
Khe shadow of a building until the light
"eached him. Duckit was tho bearer,
and as he could give only a hazy expla
nation as to how he got It, the police
man took him and tho light to the
Germantown police station.
When the prisoner hid n hearing
before Magistrate Pennock, It developed
that many other lights in Germantown
were missing. Incidentally there came
walls of complaint from a dozen other
prisoners, several declaring that If Duckit
had let the red lights alone last night
they would have been able to reach home
Duckit disclaimed responsibility for the
disappearance of the other lights. Tho
Magistrate sent him to the House of
Correction for five days.

Solemn Jewish Ceremonial
Will Be Observed by Mil
lions in All Parts of the
tn the trlhtinal of henven nnd tha trlbonjl
of enrth, Ijv the permlaalon of Ooi!'bleea r
He nnd by the permission of thla holy con
Rrecntion, we hold It lawful to pray with the
transit restora.
This prayer, chanted to the ciualnt and
plaintive melody of ngos at sundown to
night In every flynafrogue nnd Improvised
nynngoKiie In the world, from every bat
tlefield and battleship, will usher In tho
most solemn day of the Jewish year
Yom Uaklpnrlm, or the Day of Atone
ment. This year the day, hallowed as It la
by centuries of devout observance desplto
all ohstncles, will have nn added signifi
cance. Tor from the throats of 11,000,000
Jews thern will go forth the first unani
mous prayer since the great cataclysm for
a restoration of peace on earth and poofl
will to men.
Ifere. In America, where none Is di
rectly affected, the synagogues will re
sound with weeping and walling, for
thousands of those who will offer tlm
prayer will recall tho members of their
families, particularly In Russia and
Gnllcln. who have already fallen or who
nre still on the firing line. In the belliger
ent lands It will cause prostration and
hysteria, for It will come from the hearts
of the wounded nnd the mourners; It
will come from the fathers and mothers
ns well as from wives and children of
those on the battlefields.
The prayer quoted above is the ono
with which the services begin. It Is
called Kol Nldre, from the initial two
words. A few minutes before sunset on
tho eve of the Day of Atonement, when
the congregation has gathered In the
synagogue, the Ark Is opened and two
rnbbls, or two leading men in the com
munity, take from it two Tornhs, or
scrolls of the law. Then they tnke
their places, one on each side of the
cantor, and the three begin the servlcp.
With thlB service also begins the fast,
which will Inst until sundown tomorrow.
The Orthodox Jews observe this fast so
rigorously that they will not even taste
water in the entire 21 hours. Mnny of
them spend the entire time In the syna
gogue, using the time In which they
ordinarily sleep in the recitation of the
Psalms nnd In other special prayers.
Those who go home for the night will
return to the synagogues about 6 o'clock
tomorrow morning and remain there until
about In the evening.
In the reform temples the services are ,
snorter nnd several recesses are declaied.
