of a HystauJcr.
Boston, July 4. The most extraor
dinary scenes wt enacted In East
Boston today. It betfan with the ex
change of Insults between the paraders
and the thousands of sightseers who
lined the sidewalks; It ended with a
murder. All the trouble was In con
ncctkm with the afternoon parade,
which hd come to be called "the little
red school house parade," the paraders
representing American lriteotlve asso
ciation lodges. Patriotic Sons of Ameri
ca, Orange lodges, order of United
Workmen and other kindred organiza
tions. This parade was booked to start
at 1.30, and the head of the column
started from White street pretty nearly
at that time, it (.resented a novel ap
pearance. It was completely encircled
by police, who not only led the column,
but flanked both sides of It fur a hun
dred yards. There were fully 'J0O police
men under the command of Deputy
Pierce and Captain Irish.
There were about 1.200 men in t.tie
parade. It was headed by "the little
red school house," which Jhas been the
pubjtct of the regulation New England
school house, seen In all of Its states.
In front wore a number of men with
sashes made of the Stars and Stripes.
Standing in the open doorway was a
tall figure clothed In military costume,
representing Uncle Sam. On each side
of the miniature building were three
windows, and in each window was a
man reading a book.
At the very end of the procession
came a barouche drawn by four grey
horses, which was without police pro
tection. In the carriage were Mr. and
Mrs. O. C. Emerson, II. Roberts and
Mrs. F. J. Campbell. Th" carriage was
profusely decorated, with American
flags, and iMrs. Campbell wore an
When the l"llit Kceiin.
"'hen the rt'ir of the procession was
between Brooks and Putnam streets,
on Saratoga street, the crowd closed In.
A drunken woman, decked In tawiry
finery, marched up to the rear of the
carriage, shouting loud insults. The
ladies shrank back in fright. One of
the men pushed the drunken woman
tuck. Some men In the crowd fell
upon the man with loud shouts. A
milk can sailed throush the air, falling
into the carriage. '
Albert E. Andrews, of Everett, a pri
vate In the Roxfoury Horse guards,
was standing on the sidewalk near by.
He was In full uniform, his sabre at
his side. Andrews had been in the es
cort of the mayor all the morning.
The bright yellow plume of his helmet
attracted the attention of the strug
gling ladies In the carriage.
"Help us," one of them cried, shrilly.
Andrews rushed into the thick of the
fight, drawing his sabre as he ran.
He waved the heavy blade aibove his
head. The crowd fell back a second,
then rushed upon the orange plume
with a tremendous roar. Four men
stood by Ar.dre.ws, one of them bran
dishing two revolvers.
In seven minutes the street was the
scene of a terrible battle. Gradually
Andrews wjs driven up Saratoga
street. Twice he fell. Twice the man
with the revolvers fired. It Is very
probable the revolvers were charged
only with blank cartridges. Andrews
retreated, slashing and feinting with
his sabre, but cutting only once, when
one young man named Stewart, of
Brooks street, had his nose slashed off.
Charge of Mounted Police.
Hardly had the crowd started the
fight when a messenger was sent for
the police. This time there was not a
policeman within a quarter of a mile.
Captain Irish detailed three mounted
policemen to the rescue. They name
down Boston street on the gallop. At
the time Andrew and hl.i supporters
were nearly done for, Officer Bates and
two others did great fighting. Batei
was struck by a brick Immediately on
arriving on the scene. A number of his
teeth were knocked out. His uniform
was spattered with Wood.
With great difficulty Andrews was
protected till he reached No, 44! Sara
toga street, where he dashed under
Bates' horse and escaped over a fence
Into his father's house.
The mounted officers held the crowd
at bay ten minutes more, then a pla
toon of fourteen officers dashed to the
rescue, clubbing right and left. Many
heads were broken before the crowd
went scurrying down Saratoga street.
Michael Doyle, of Morris street, was
clubbed so severely that he now lies dy
ing at the city hospital
A small detachment of the pnradcrs
was coming down Border street Just
after the parade had been dismissed.
At the corner of Maverick street there
was trouble which originated In the
same manner as did the other disturb
ances of the day. There was hooting
and hissing, followed by personal al
tercations between those who were
coming from the parade and the people
In the crowd. Some sticks and ntones
were thrown and the melee Increased,
whereupon a number of the paraders
drew pistols and began firing indiscrim
inately. John Will Killed.
John W. Wills, who Is said to be an
Involuntary participant In the affair,
was struck by a bullet and received In
juries which resulted in his death.
Just a few feet from Wills stood John
Row, one of the paraders. Ross pointed
his pistol at Wills, according to the
testimony of a man who stood next to
him, and fired, the bullet striking Wills
Just above the right hip, passing Jnto
his abdomen. ' He gave a stifled cry and
fell to the pavement. , - .
When Wills fell, a young man named
John Quirk sprang toward Mm and
bent over th bleeding body..' He claims
that Rom pointed his pistol' at him and
fired ' again. v The bullet .' graced his
temple. ' .
Patrick A. Kelly was also wounded,
