William F. James was appointed bat
talion chief September 1, 1913, after hav

August 22, 1832. A Philadelphia!! by birth,
he received rapid promotion. He was
promoted to an assistant foremanshlp.
which corresponded to what Is now a
lieutenancy, April 11, 1694. On February
9, 1897, he was appointed foreman, or cap
tain. James was ono of the most popular
men In tho service and was known as
an "A No. 1 fighter," one of the highest
praises a fireman can glvo a fellow fire
man. Ho planned to retire September 1,
this year, two years from the dato he
received his lost promotion. James, who
was unmarried, was born October 11, 1S57.
Ho lived at 2465 Amber street.
A "amoko eater" wa3 the title which
John Hlllman, Jr., earned from his fel

At this point Mrs. Hlllman could not
control her voice, and her husband, who
has been In the FIro Department for 30
years, Bald In broken tones that "he
wished to God It had been htm instead
of tho boy."
Both tho father and son were stationed
at Engine House No. 29, at 4th and
Glrard avenue, tho father being a stoker.
The little three-year-old boy, John 3d,
all unconscious of his father's death, told
visitors at tho Hlllman home this morn

So great was the sorrow of Chief
Murphy that ho forgot to remove his hat

Ho turned In a report of the disaster and
had turned to leave the ofllce when Di

"What's the matter with you?" asked
the Director. ..,..
Chief Murphy removed his hat.
"A little scratch," ho said. The gash
made by tho brick was four Inches long
and penetrated to the skull.
Reporters met the fire chief as he left
the Director's office. He was crying
silently, , .. .
"Two of our men got mashed up in that
fire and killed." he said. "They were in
a position that looked safe and never
expected that wall to fall. I was near

Instructed to keep all persons moving nnd
to arrest all Intoxicated persons on sight.
GOVERNOR'S HOUSE A FORT.
Last night was ono ot tho moat critical
In the recent history of Georgia.
Throughout the afternoon crowds, mostly
of the rougher clement, had been gather
ing about the home of the Governor, a
few miles outsido of Atlanta. Twenty
county policemen, armed with riot guns,
had been on duty about the place, while
the Governor and a number of friends,
all heavily armed, were In the house.
After dark tho crowd was augmented by
a largo number of Atlantans, who ar
rived In automobiles. The men and half
grown boys In the crowd at first con
tented themselves with hooting and Jeer
ing. As tho night wore along their tem
per became more ugly. Finally ono of
tho leaders mado a speech In which he
urged that, as Frank had been spirited
away, the crowd should hang the Gov
ernor. With cries of. "Wo want Georgia's
traitor Governor" In his ears, the Gov
ernor telephoned to tho major command
ing the 1st Battalion of the 5th Regi
ment, which had been held In reserve
at the armory. The troops wero rushed
to the scene in automobile trucks that
hud been In readiness, Bayonets were
fixed and the troops thrown out to com
mand the tract of half a mllo In front
of the Slaton residence, which marked
tho limit within which tha Governor de
clared martial law.
Tho mob was still ugly, apparently
realizing that the Governor had Issued
orders that no shots were to be fired
except In tho last extremity. The throng
stood fast in the face of the bayonets
for a while. Finally It gave way and
then showered the soldiers with stones.
TP.OOPS CHARGE MOB.
Obeying the command to charge with
fixed bayonets, the soldiers dispersed tho
mob, nnd small details of troops cleared
tho neighborhood ot scattered parties of
the crowd, driving them In all directions.
For a time It looked a? though tho
troops would have to Are, but at last
tho mob dispersed. The troops then
had more trouble with the people in
the automobiles, who defied them for a
time. It was early today before the last
of tha mob had left the scene and the
Governor could retire.
While the State soldiers patrolled the
grounds about Governor Slaton'a house
today the Governor remained Indoors.
With him were stveral of his close
friends, all of v them armed and ready to
repulse another mob, should It appear
again In the nelghborhod of the country
home. In Atlanta today hundreds of
plain clothes policemen and uniformed
officers mingled with the crowds on tha
streets, and with tho mounted police
clattering along tha principal streets, dis
persed every kind of street gathering.
The policemen were under orders to keep

In tho county from which tho family of
tho little Phagan girl came, an ofllgy of
Governor Slaton was hanged In a publlo

A similar sceno was enacted nt Wood

THE OKLAHOMA CASE.
In acting Upon the Oklahoma problem,
the Supremo Court held tho questioned
provision In the Constitution Invalid on
the ground that, although the Constitu
tion of tho Stato provided for a literacy
test for all voters, It Infringed upon the
Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution
of the United States by setlng forth,
On the objectionable "grandfather
clause," a condition prerequisite to vot
ing. Tho only difference between this
clause and that embodied In the An-napoll-.
Constitution Is that the latter
substituted a $300 property ownership
qualification for the literacy test.
Tho Constitution of Oklahoma contains
the typical "grandfather clause" as
adopted by tho eight other Southern
States employing It to dlsenfranchlso the
Negro. It follows:
"No person shall be registered as an
elector of this Slate or bo allowed to voto
