SAD TRAGEDY OCOUBS TO SOUTH
Frank Janheu Throws n Kerosene
Xamp, Which Explodes, Burns His
Home, Causes the Death of His
Child and Inflicts Serious Burns on
His Wife and Her Sister Mother-in-Law
Silys He Threw the Lamp
at His Wife He and the Wife
Ono of Uio saddest tragedies the city
has witnessed was enacted In .South
Hcranton yesterday morning1. A lump,
thrown by an Intoxicated father, set
flru to his homo and his infant daugh
ter, nslecp In bed, perished In the
Haines, whllo his wife and sister sus
tained burns which may bo attended
with seilouH results.
The pcenc of tho unfortunate occur
rence wiih the two-story frame dwell
liny nt 926 Prospect avenue. Tho father
of tho family Is Frank Jansen, aped
twenty-seven, a barber employed by
I-'red Dltnler. The house Is owned by
Jansen's niothcr-ln-law, Mrs. Ilcllnda
McDonnld, and was occupied by Mrs.
McDonald, her unmarried daughter,
Radio McDonnld, aged elRhtecn, Hnil
the Jnnscn family, father, mother and
seven-year-old daughter Florence.
Monday nlsht Jnnsen attended a
masquerade ball and, ureordlnrr to his
own udmlsslons, took some drink. He
returned homo at 4 o'clock yesterday
morning' and was mot on Ills entrance
to the house by his wife, who enmo
down to let him In. She scolded him
for Ktaylnjr out so late, and the scold
ing brought her mother, Mrs. McDon
ald, downstairs. While thoso three
weio on the ground floor the lamp was
thrown. It exploded and set lire
to tho house. Tho flames Ignited
Mrs. Jansen's clothing, and while her
husband was engaged In saving" his
wife by wrapping her In an ulster and
carrying her outside, they spread
through the hallway and rilled the
stairway leading to tho second floor.
DASHKD THROUGH FLAMES.
Jansen's slstcr-In-law, Miss Mc
Donald, rushed down the stairs
In her night-clothes nnd dnshed
through the flumes. Jnnsen mot
her In the hallway, extinguished
the Are that had attacked her
garments and carried her outside.
When bo started to return to rescue
his child tho flames had gained such
headway that ho was prevented, nnd
before a lndder could be secured to
effect a rescue through tho second
story windows tho child was suffo
cated. Tho body was taken out by a
Tho Investigations of the police led
to the arrest of Jnnsen, and he was In
carcerated In the city hull station
house. Mrs. Jnnsen was removed to
tho Lackawanna hospital. Miss Mc
Donald was cared for at a. neighbor's
home, nnd tho 'body of the Infant was
removed to tho house of a relative.
A report to the effect that Jansen
threw tho lamp nt his wife In a fit of
anger, led to his arrest. This report,
however, Is not substantiated by very
Mrs. McDonald, Jansen's mother-in-law,
Is the accuser. She told her story
yesterday afternoon at a hearing be
fore Mayor Molr In police court.
She snld sho heard Jansen coming In
and later heard Mrs. Jansen scolding
him. This moved her to descend to
tho first floor and take a seat at the
table in the dining room, opposite to
where Jansen was sitting. Mrs. Jan
sen, sho says, remarked something
about not having to put up with her
husband's 111 treatment nnd leaving
tho room sturted up-stnlrc, by way of
the box stairs loading from tho hall
way nt a point Just opposite the door
of tho room In which the husband
THRKW THE LAMP.
Mrs. Jansen wns on tho second step,
so Mrs. McDonald alleges, when Jan
sen grabbed tho chimney from tho
kerosene lamp, which was lit and
resting on the table, nnd hurled it at
his wife. Tho next moment he picked
up tho lamp and threw It forcefully
In the samtj direction In which he had
sent tho globe. The lamp struck tho
door sill, exploded, and tho burning
oil scattered in all directions,
Mrs. McDonald admitted that Jan-
son rushed to his wife's side und ex
tinguished the flames that had at
tacked her clothing and that he also
helped Sadie McDonald out, though his
handi -..ore badly burned.
Tho mayor peimlttod Jnnsen to tell
hi. story of the affair, nnd ho did so
in a convincing, straightforward man
ner, lie admitted that no had been
drinking the night before, but main
tained that ho was perfectly sober
when ho returned home. He did not
think ho took flvo glasses of beer, all
tnld, at tho hall.
"When he reached home, ho found
some dlfllcully in getting In, as the
chair which had been placed against
the unlocked door had caught in ths
linoleum nnd ho had to use soma
force to shove It in. Ho believes his
wife helped open the door, as she
wan retreating to tno dining room out
of the hallway when ho entered.
She began to fcold. him, ho says, for
staying out so late, hut ho mndo no
answer. Instead, ho filled his pipe and
proceeded to have a smoke, Hitting
alongsldo the dining table, which was
In the center of tho room. His wlfa
was seated on tho lounge. His motT
er-ln-law, he positively declares, via
not in the room at tho time the lump
was thrown unless sho was hidden
behind or under the table. As to
when sho camu down stnlrs, he was
not prepared to say, as ho did not
bee hor come down, but ho swore he
did not seo her about the lower floor
until he was assisting his wife after
her clothing took lire. ,,
AIMED AT WINDOW.
When he staitcd to light his pipe,
ho found he had no matches, and tak
ing up a paper which was lying on
the table, ho toro a strip from it nnd
essayed to Ignite It by thrusting it
down the chimney of the lamp.
In doing so, hit elbow struck tho
globe, and knocked It off. It fell to
the table, rolled to the floor and brokn
with a crash. The lamp began to
blaze up and splutter nnd fearing it
was going to explode, li picked 'it
up and threw it at the window. The
door leading to thej hallway was open
and set back against the wall, When
In tho position it overlaps, by u few
inches, the window at which ho alined
tho lamp. Tho lamp struck the door,
exploded and the conflagration was
His wife, he gays, was near the
hall doorway when tho explosion took
place and the burning oil Ignited her
clothing. Ho covered her with the ul
ster ho had Just removed, nnd carried
hor outside. Clothing which wan
hanging In the hall und the stairway
leading to tho second Moor tool: flro
and when ho re-entered the housa he
found It almost 'Impossible to pro
ceed. As ho wus trying to fight his way to
tho stairs, his sister-in-law camo rush
ing through tho flames, with her night
clothes nblaze, nnd, catching her In
his arms, ho extinguished tho llamcs
and assisted her out.
TORE HKR9RLF AWAY.
She was almost delirious with pain
tind 1 right nnd upon reaching .the
outer air broke away from him and
ran madly nwny. The ukln was torn
from his burned fingers by her try
liig to release herself us he was carry
ing her out. He exhibited his hands
In proof of this uscsrtlon.
When he nrjnln entered the house
ho found tho hallway choked with
fames and seeing that It was Impossi
ble to reach the second floor from the
Interior, ho rushed out ngaln, Intend
ing to get to tho daughters room
through the second story windows.
A neighbor had scut in an ulurin In
tho Interim, and while Jansen was
endeavoring to And a ladder or some
other means of helping him to reach
tho second story, the Century IIoso
company's wagon dashed past. He
and Joseph Kramer called to the fire
men for a ladder, but they evidently
did not hear the call, for tho wagon
continued on to tho next corner. Theru
was no hydrant there, as was thought
by tho firemen, nnd tho wagon dashs-d
back ngaln past the burning house to
tho other corner of the block. When
tho wagon stopped, a ladder was se
cured and two of the firemen, c.-Chlet
P. J. Hlckey and Fred Boyer, brought
down the child's body.
Fred Boyer, who entered tho bias
ing rosin and picked the body up
from, the bed, testified nt the hearing
that Jnnsen was In ft'ont of the houis,
crying plteously for the firemen to
hasten the rescue of hl.i child.
Chief of Pollco Frank Unhung, Jr.,
who Interviewed Mrs. Jansen tit the
hospital In the morning, stated at the
hearing that she snld the explosion was
TESTIFIED AGAINST HIM.
A brother and young sister ot Mrs.
Jansen were nt tho hearing, and
evinced n desire to make Jnnsen n
penr culpable for tho tragedy. Attor
ney John P. Quitman was present nt
their behest to conduct tho prosecution.
Junsen'n friends brought Attorney M.
W. Lowry to the hearing to look after
Last evening Mr. Lowry, attended by
a stenographer, visited Mrs. Jansen at
tho hospital and secured from her a
statement, In wMch sho totally exon
erates her hu nid from nil blame
for tho tragec"
"When my 'jbaiul came In," she
said, "I was unity, and started to
scold him for ,nylng out so late. Ho
said, nothing, and only laughed at
mo when I scolded. Ho filled his pipe,
and In trying to get a light from tho
lamp, knocked off the chimney. The
lamp began to blaze up and I ran to
wards It. The flames flew up In my
face, and I ran hack. He picked up
tho lamp and tried to throw It out of
tho window. I was near the hall door
when tho lamp exploded and my dross
caught lro. My husband put out tho
flames nnd carried me out. If they
accuse him of throwing the lamp nt
me. It is awfully, awfully wrong."
Mrs. Jansen does not know that her
child Is dead. She was told that the
child was only slightly burned. Sho
seems to be concerned only about the
child's sufferings. Her hands, face
and lower limbs are badly burned, but
the doctors believe she will recover.
Mayor Molr decided to hold Jansen
for court without ball.
Mrs. McDonald carried no Insurance,
and her loss, in consoauence, Is a total
one, ns the building nnd all Its con
tents were totally destroyed.

M. Daly Will Leave the Transpor

J. M. Daly, superintendent of trans
portation on the Lackawanna rail
road, has formally resigned his posi
tion with the company, to take effect
at the convenience of the company's
olllclals. Tho resignation was placed
In the hands of tho officials last Sep
tember, but Mr. Daly was prevailed
upon to withhold It until a later date,
lu view of tho reorganization of tho
transportation department under his
able direction, and nlso In view of
the -complicated condition of affairs
existing at that time by tho retire
ment of E. G. Russell as general su
perintendent, nnd A. C. Salisbury ns
division superintendent. Since then
tho system has been thoroughly reor
ganized and now Mr. Daly feels that
he should bo relieved of tho responsi
bilities of his position.
When The Tribune announced three,
weeks ago that Mr. Daly was about to
sever his relations with the com
pany, a contradiction was nsueu ror.
The time for tho ofllclal announcement
of tho resignation had not then ar
rived. Mr. Daly submitted hla resignation
to General Superintendent Clarice yes

necessary airangcincnts can be made

THE TRUTH AND

Hundreds of Clergymen Praise Paine's
Mill WP&Si'P ''"'JtS,
When, several years ago, (Now York's
greatest Presbyterian minister made
the public statement that it wns due
to the US3 ot Paine's Celery Compound
that, after a winter of exhausting
work, he was able to carry on his du
ties through the enervating sprlngtlm
with unusual comfort and ease
And when, a little later, the Ijnrnoa
Bishop ot (Burlington, Bishop Mlchaud,
published nn endorsement of this great
remedy, saying: "Hoping that my
words may inspire those readers who
need health and strength with faith to
try Paine's Celery Compound and
prove to themselves Its worth"
When, about tho same time, tho pub
lic statement was made by the super
intendent of the largest Woman's
Christian association In tho country
that "thoso who have been tajjlnt,
Paine's Celery Compound are greatly
benefitted and desire to continue Its
When the Rev. J. G. Laird, of Lon
don, Ont., who wrote to the proprietors
that, if ho had only known Paine's
Celery Compound when he was llrst
aflllcted with nervousness, he would
never have been placed on the list of
When these nnd hundreds ot other
unsolicited testimonials have come
from ministers of every denomination,
there Is no shadow ot a ipiestlon of tho
sincere regard In which this greatest
of nil remedies for blood and nerves
Is hold by thoso who have used it.
Zealous work, with no thought of
their health or nerves, causes the re
'tlrement. of a large number of clergy
men every year.
It Is possffilo, however, to work hard
nnd yet keep well, If one will but pay
the proper attention in the benefits to
be derived from Falne's Celery Com
pound. Tho Rev. Thomas A. Uzzcll, pastor
Clarke would talk on the matter, pre
ferring to lmvo the Information como
from some other source. In the re
tirement of Mr. Daly, the Lackawanna

and best-Informed railroad men In the
Mr. Daly will leave the company
with tho kindliest feeling possible,
both among the olllclals nnd employes.
Ills future plans are not decided upon.
Ills services are constantly In de
maud, and it is only a matter ot sal
ary nnd location that deters him from
accepting some of tho offers under
consideration. Since ho Joined tho
Lackawanna railroad forces In May,
1S99, ho has revolutionised their trans
portation system and placed It on a
piano second to nono In the country.
His fast freight system ot handling
enrs Is now In operation on many of
the lending railroads of tho United
States. Mr. Daly's successor has not
yet been decided upon.
J. M, Daly was born In Peoria, 111.,
on Juno IS, 1SC0, and entered tho rail
way service In 1874 us a clerk In the
car nccountant's ofllce of the Toledo,
Peoria and Wcstem railroad, where ho
remained until 1877.
From 1877 lu 1S78 he was a clerk in
tho service of tho Wubnsh railway,
and lu 1S70 went to tho Atchcson,
Topekn nnd Santa Fe road as a clerk.
That same year ho went Into the ser
vice of the Chicago and Northwestern
railroad, wheto ho remained until 1SS3.
From 1SSS to 18S7 ho was chief car
accountant and trainmaster of tho
Chicago, St. Paul and Kansas City
railroad, and from 1SS7 to IbSl was
chief car accountant of the New York,
I Chtcniro nnd St. Louis railroad.
In 1S91 ho entered tno service ot
tho Illinois Central as chief account
ant, and In September, ISOi, was pro
moted to tho position of superintend
ent of transportation, which position
he held until May 1, ISO!), when ho
came to Scranton with tho Lacka

People who know about Indian River

And here Is a letter from the pastor

most Influential church In South Balti
more, the Rev. William T. Bailey:
"Gentlemen: I propose to do what I
can to let people know of your Pnlne's

my wlfo was an Invalid, Many doctors
have first nnd Inst attended her, but
one bottle of Paine's Celery Compound

Compound restored my health."
Tho 'Rev. H.'j.'Granllcnard, pastor of

The lesson to be learned Is jilain. At
