SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 6.—Patsy Carroll, a well-known sporting char acter, died Monday at noon at the Wayside Mission. He was takeu there three days ago from the Oregon house, where he was found in the last stages of consumption. Capt. Hogie, of the city ambulance, •who was called to take him out of the hotel, was startled to see his condition. The athletic muscles which in his day had put to sleep many a so-called prize-fighter, were wasted until the man did not weigh more than sixty |>ourids. Capt. Hogie knew Patsy well In the days when he was in his prime, and, picking him up in his arms, car ried him out of the house as though he was a child. Patsy thanked the captain and spoke of his days being numbered. When he arived at the Mission it was seen he could not live more than a few days, nnd after that time he gradually be gan to sink...

TO PREVENT PANICS ity Council Will Examine Public Buildings. LOOK A, ILK iAEETY OE PEOPLE AH Places for Public Gatherings to Be Investigated Immediately by a Special Committee. The city council last night took Ini tiative steps to provide as far as pos sible against a repetition of the recent horror that occurred by the burning of the Iroquois theater in Chicago. The matter was brought up by Coun cilman Smith, who stated that he thought that the council should take immediate steps toward making an in vestigation of the Walla Walla theater. }), Dei lared that the exits of the house were very poor, in fait, they were ex ceedingly dangerous. Should a rtre occur in tli.' house and panic follow it would result in many people being killed or burned to death. Due precau tion had not been taken when the re cent improvements were made in the theater and he deemed it the impera tive duty of the council to make an Im mediate examination and cause the building to be put in such shape that there...

Jan. 7.— Six mem bers of the City council called upon Mayor Humes in an effort to secure the removal of Chief of Police Sulli van from office. The committee was in conference for an hour, during which time the mayor was tendered verbal evidence of malfeasance in office. This malfeasance was alleged against Sulli van by a man who represented that he himself had had dealings with the chief Of police of a nature which would warrant the preferring of the charge Of taking a bribe. May.»i Humes evidently anticipated the committee's coming, for he was prepared with a counter statement, advanced in an effort to shield Sulli van from the accusations, in which he pointed out that in his belief the charge ■was Inspin <1 by well-known local gamblers. These, he believed, were anxious to Becure Sullivan's removal because th" latter had been making war upon certain members of the crim in...
