r A 10 THE SUN, BALTIMORE; FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 13, 1901. DIES IN EES OFFICE Mr. Luther M. Reynolds Stricken With Heart Disease. ONE OF CITY'S OLDEST LAWYERS Bad Xot Been Well Recently, But Attended To Hts Practice Until Tle Last Was In His 7Sth Year. Mr. Luther M. Remolds, In point of practice one of the six oldest members of the Baltimore bar and one of the best-known and most distinguished lawyers In theclty, died suddenly yesterday morning In his office in the Maryland Telephone Building. Lexington and Courtland streets. Death was due to angina pectoris. Mr. Reynolds was In his seventy-eighth year. Mr. Reynolds had not been well for several days, but attended to his practice regularly, and when he reached his office yesterday seemed very bright and cheerful. He was In consultation with a client when, about 11.30 o'clock, he became suddenly III. Prof. John "ST. Chambers, who was passing was called in, but could give no relief. Mr. Reynolds died in 20 minutes. He was conscious to the last. The remains were removed to Mr. Reynolds late home, 211 Alsquith street. No arrangements for the funeral have been made yet. " Besides his widow Mr. Reynolds left surviving him two sisters and two brothers-Mrs. Frances Clough, Mrs. Sarah Culbreth sind Robert J. Reynolds, of Delaware, and Thomas G. Reynolds, of Oxford, Talbot county, Md. Born In Delaware. Mr. Reynolds was born at Golden Ridge, near Dover, Del., in January, 1S24. His parents were Robert "W. Reynolds, a prominent citizen of Delaware, and Sarah Gilder Marvil Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds ancestor settled in Delaware about 1650, and the old homestead, which was then taken up under a patent, is still in the possession of his brother. Robert J. Reynolds, ex-Governor of Delaware. Mr. Reynolds was educated at Jefferson College. Philadelphia, from which he was graduated in 1S47. He attended the Tale Law School, from which he graduated In 1849; was admitted to the bar In Maryland, In Frederick county. In 1S51, and began the practice of law In Baltimore in the fall of that year. lie married Mary Louisa Willis, of Baltimore, in 1S67. They have no children. Career As A Lawyer. Mr. Reynolds enjoyed an extensive and lucrative law practice, and while he had a reasonable amount of court practice his most congenial and effective work was in office consultations. He sought rather to discourage litigation than to encourage it.-believing that fair-minded men the law being known to them conld and should adjust their differences without resorting to the bitter contests in the court. In carrying out this part of his practice his absolute fairness, his honesty and his logical conclusions, in the exercise of which he knew neither client or opponent, almost In-Tariably enabled him to adjust existing differences and won to him hosts of friends among both lawyers and laymen. Attractive Characteristics. Mr. Reynolds was of simple and unostentatious habits, extremely domestic In hi tastes, modest and unobtrusive in his manners. While somewhat reserved among strangers he was most warm and affectionate with his friends, to whom his devotion was ever apparent. His wants were few; he had but one hobby, and that was the love for and possession of fast horses, of which at various times he owned among the brst in the State of Maryland. One of his distinguishing characteristics was his disregard for money. He freely rendered service out of affection for his clients and love of his profession. These characteristics, coupled with modest opinion, ever entertained with reference to his own deserts, caused his professional career to be iusrRed with many Instances where compensation, though having been fixed by judicial orders, had been by him reduced and a portion of the fees allowed returned to the trust estates: the check returning the same were characteristically marked "ex mero motu. Fiftieth Anniversary. Last winter, in speaking to a Sew reporter of the fiftieth anniversary of his admission to the bar. Mr. Reynolds talked entertainingly of the days of half a century before. Only five othesmembers of the bar had been so long in practice, he said. They were ex-Gov. William Pinkney Whyte, .Messrs. John T. Morris. Thomas M. Lana-hsn. Covington D. Barnitz and William F. Frlck. Continuing in a reminiscent vein Mr. Reynolds said: "I was admitted to the bar by Judge Purvis nee February 19. 1851. On July 4 following the change of jndiclary under the new Constitution became effective. Judge Frederick Frlck was the only member of the old bench reappointed and was assigned to the Superior Court. Judge John Marshall was appointed to the Court of Common Pleas and Judge Henry Stump to the Criminal Court. Judge Stump was afterward removed by the Legislature, the only removal of a Baltimore judge In my recollection. Major Thomas W. Hall was librarian of the bar library. He was succeeded by George L. L. Davis, and Davla by John P. Poe. "Only three courts existed In those early days and there were only about 150 lawyers here. The leaders were Reverdy John-eon. John Nelson, John V. L. McMahon, William Schley and Attorney-General Richardson. S. Teackle Wallis, Brown & Brune and John H. Thomas were among the rising young members of the bar. Frank Gallagher was considered the most eloquent practitioner In Baltimore, but he did not live long. W. Fell Giles and John C. Le Grand were entering upon careers that became brilliant later. "The methods of practice were different then. More attention was paid to oratory In court work. It was considered a disgrace to solicit business; the young lawyer hung out his shingle and waited as patiently as he could for clients. The vicinity of the courthouse was also the center of social gayety, as most of the prominent lawyers resided within a pistol shot of the peat of justice. Chief Justice Taney, of tho United States Supreme Court, lived In the building where Mr. Thomas M. Lanahan a office Is now. and St. George Teackle lived where ex-Governor Whyte's office is. Judge Purviance resided on Gay street, south of Baltimore street, and Luther Martin, then dead, had lived on narrison street. Fayette. Lexington. Calvert and St. Paul streets near the courthouse were lined with fashionable residences, which were often the scenes of brilliant social functions." Announcements In Conrt. Both the City Court and the Court of Common Pleas adjourned in respect to the memory of Mr. Reynolds. In the City Court the formal announcement of Mr. Reynolds' death and the motion to adjourn were made by Mr. Charles W. Field. The motion was seconded by Mr. George Dobbin Penniman and Judge Stock bridge responded. The announcement and motion were made In the Court of Common Pleas by Mr. William H. Dawson. The motion was seconded by Mr. James P. Gorter and Judge Phelps responded. Funeral Sunday. The funeral will take place from Mr. Reynolds late home, 211 Alsquith street, at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The interment will be in Loudon Park Cemetery. Officiating ministers and the pallbearers tad not been selected last night. MRS. LOUISE HAUBAIT.H. The funeral of Mrs. Louise Harbaugh, wife of the late Thomas Harbaugh, who died last Sunday, took place yesterday afternoon from her late residence, 302 East Twenty-second street.

STRAUS FRIENDS ANGRY Criticise What They Say Is Mr. Van-diver's Interference. The Speakership of the House of Delegates appears to be still an open problem. The report which was current on Wednesday that Mr. Vandlver had succeeded in securing the support of the party managers for Mr. Mitchell, of Harford countyt aroused a storm of protests among city Democrats, who claim that Mr. Straus is entitled to the honor and should have it. Reports, however, vary from day to day, and yesterday, his friends say, the chances decidedly favored Mr. Straus. Several prominent county leaders who were in town yesterday were outspoken for Mr. Straus and opposed to the idea of, Mr. Vandlver naming the Speaker. Among city Democrats of high and low degree who discussed the subject a strong, and In some instances a bitter, sentiment was expressed at what was termed Mr. Vandiver's interference to bring about, if he can, the defeat of Mr. Straus and to force the selection of the Delegate from his own county. Mr. Straus friends say it is not at all improbable that a fight will be made against Mr. Vandlver for State Treasurer on several grounds, among which is the claim that if Harford county secures the Speakership, with its extensive influence and patronage, it should not also have the important office of State Treasurer, whose incumbent is a member of the Board of Public Works. Other reasons are urged against Mr. Vandiver's election as Treasurer, there being a feeling such as last spring was voiced by ex-Gov. Frank Brown, Mr. John M. Dulany and there On the other hand, Mr. Straus, declares his adherents, is highly popular both in the city and in the counties, and as Mr. Van-diver is chiefly blamed for bringing about bis defeat for the Congressional nomination In the Second district last year there is much Indignant criticism among the younger Democracy, as well as among the older friends of Mr. Straus, many of whom are potent in the party, against what they declare to be "this second interference by the Chairman of the State Central Committee against him." It is possible, therefore, that Mr. Straus may be forced to an open revolt against Mr. Vandiver's election as State Treasurer. If he made such a fight he would be sustained, his friends declare, by an almost united sentiment among the city Democracy and also a widespread sentiment In the counties. ASKS FULL INVESTIGATION Dr. Bosley Says Hospital Will Go On Condon Site. "The Municipal Hospital Commission will demand and insist upon the fnvestiga-tlon being thoroughly made. We will see that It is not dropped. It must be carried through now." Thus spoke Health Commissioner Bosley yesterday In regard to the resolution Introduced In the First Branch City Council Tuesday night, to have a joint committee make an investigation as to the manner in which the commission selected the property of Mr. Levi Z. Condon on the Relsters-town road. The members of the commission are highly Indignant at what they regard as an aspersion cast upon them by the resolution. Dr. Bosley had a conference with Mayor Hayes during the morning, and stated later that he was convinced the hospital would be erected on the Condon property. "It is," he said, "the Ideal site, and the arguments against it arenot sound." TO REPAIR THE ROAD Mr. Clendinen -Green Spring: Avenne. A conference over the repairing of Green Spring Avenue road was held yesterday morning. Mr. Thomas R. Clendinen, president of the Park Board, met by appointment at 7 A. M., Mr. Wallace King, representing the property owners who want the road repaired and Messrs. James W. Denny and Richard H. Pleasants, their attorneys. The conference was held at the Intersection of Green Spring Avenue road and Rogers avenue. The plan proposed now Is that the property owners shall eet back their line on each side 10 feet, so as to make the road 80 feet wide, with room for sidewalks. The property owners will probably furnish the hard stone necessary to repair the road, and the Park Board will then provide rotten rock for surfacing and do the repair work. A small portion of the road will be repaired as a sample, but the general repair will not be undertaken until next spring. Low Death Rate For This Tear. According to the figures of the Health Department, the average death rate for this year will be lower than In any former year in the history of the city. Last year the average rate per month was 19.30. For 11 months of the present year the average has been 10.2L Unless there is an unnsualy large number of deaths this month the rate this year will be less than ever before. Mr. Wachter Calls On Mayor. Congressman Frank C. Wachter called upon Mayor Hayes yesterday morning and laid before him his plan to arrange a transfer of city landat the old quarantine grounds for property at Hawkins Point belonging to a fertilizing company. By the transfer Mr. Wachter hopes to overcome an obstacle which the Government might place In he way of giving Fort McIIenry to the city for a public park. The Mayor Is Vaccinated. Mayor Hayes had himself vaccinated yesterday morning by Health Commissioner Bosley. The operation took place In yie Mayor's private office and the scar was made on the left arm: City Hall Notes. The Mayor said yesterday that the ordinance giving the Johns Hopkins Hospital a flat rate of $10annually for all water consumed had come to him and he thought he would probably veto it, but there are a number of things he would have to consider. Building Inspector Preston has prepared plans and drawings for the two new school buildings to be erected at Walbrook and Waverly, respectively. He will lay them before the Board of Awards next week. Messrs. R. C. Davidson and William T. Dixon qualified before Mayor Hayes yesterday as city directors upon the part of the city in the Western Maryland Railroad Company. The Fife Board deprived Iverson J. Moon, pilot on the fire boat, of one day's holiday, and Hostler Thomas R. Worn, of Ne. 21 Engine Company, of 4 day's holiday for profanity. - F. A. Haakell "and Robert E. O'Keefe were elected substitutes la the department. REYNOLDS LOST LIFE IN TUNNEL Three Men Struck And Mangled By B. & O. Express Train. J.C. C0NR0Y KILLED INSTANTLY William G. Roberts, Of Woodberry, And Philip J. Mclntyre, 124 West Preston Street, Badly Hnrt. One man was killed outright, another Injured fatally, it is thought, and a third seriously hurt by a Baltimore and Ohio passenger train going south, which struck the men in the Belt Line tunnel yesterday morning shortly after 7 o'clock. The dead man is: JOHN a'cONHOT. a bricklayer, 50 yews old. whose home was at 1322 Holbrook street. The Injured men are: WILLIAM G. ROBERTS, a laborer, S5 years old, whoso home is thought to be at Woodberry. PHILIP McIXTYRE. a laborer, 29 years old, who Ures at 121 West Preston street. Thrown Considerable Distance. Conroy was badly mangled and Roberts and Mclntyre were thrown a considerable distance. Conroy's body was taken to Camden Station, and Roberts and Mclntyre were taken to Mount Royal Station, where the stationmaster summoned an ambulance, and the men were removed to the City Hospital. Dr. Robb. one of the company's surgeons, was at Mount Royal Station at the time, and did what he could to make the two men comfortable. Roberts was suffering terribly, and Dr. Robb wanted him to take some whisky, but he persistently refused to do so. His skull was fractured he was hurt internally and he was badly cut and bruised. At the City Hospital late last night It was stated that his injuries were probably fatal and that he might not live until morning. II1 Fortunate Escape. Unless Injured Internally, Mclntyre Is not thought to be seriously hurt. After the lacerations about his head and body were dressed at the City Hospital relatives had him taken home, where it was stated he was resting easily last night. The accident happened under Richmond street and not a great distance from the northern entrance to the tunnel at Mount Royal Station. No definite explanation as to the cause of the accidnt could be secured, as neither of the Injured men was in such condition that he could explain it. An official of the road Bald he could account for the accident only on the ground that the men became bewildered. , He said engines going In opposite directions are not allowed to run through the tunnel at the same time. This was denied by friends of the injured men, but they admitted that only one train was in the tunnel when the accident occurred. Says Engine Was IVot Derailed. A relative of Mclntyre who talked with the Injured man after he was hurt said that there was no truth In the report that the engine had jumped the track and mashed the men against the wall of the tunnel. He said Mclntyre had frequently worked In the tunnel, but he refused to give any opinion as to how the men happened to be caught on the track. The Injured men were employed by Contractor Michael J. Healy and had entered the tunnel about 7 o'clock to do some masonry work. They were still on their way to their place of work when train No. 147, for Washington, left Mount Royal Station at 7.03, and it was this train that struck them. AH three men had worked In the tunnel before, It Is said, and knew that trains were due about that time. Coroner Will Hold Inqnest. Dr. J. Q. Wiltshire, coroner of the Western district, summoned a jury and will hold an inquest tonight at the Western Police Station to inquire into the death of Conroy. The dead man leaves a widow and one child. TO SUPPLY COLD NEXT SUMMER Ordinance Is Signed And Company Proposes To Go To Worlc. Mayor Hayes yesterday signed the ordinance granting permission to Richard B. Fentr,ess and Summerfield B. Medalry, to lay conduits in the streets for the transmission of heat and cold. Mr. Medariy said that several sites were now being considered for the erection of the plant, and the conduits would be laid and the whole business In working order by next summer. "We propose," he said, "to do business in Baltimore as soon as the hot weather commences. We must be ready by that time or we will lose a whole season for the refrigeration, which Is one of the principal points we hope to make popular In this city." TO INCORPORATE EXCHANGE Licensed Real Estate Brokers Also Discuss Fort McHenry As Park. Another meeting of licensed real estate brokers was held yesterday afternoon at the Builders Exchange, about 150 persons being present, and at which it was decided to incorporate under the name of the Real Estate Exchange of Baltimore City. Mr. Hammond Dugan presided over the meeting and Mr. J. C. Martlen was secretary. Fifty-two brokers present pledged themselves to join the proposed exchange. The report of the committee on constitution and by-laws made Its report and it was referred to a committee on revision, composed of Messrs. Hammond - Dugan, chairman; H. C. Turnbull, J. Leland Han-na, Thomas J. Lindsay, Clymer Whyte, H. C Logemann, Thomas B. C. Yearley, W. B. Ehlen, John A. Barker, Jr., and. J. C. Martlen, the last three having composed the committee which prepared the outline of the constitution and by-laws. The revision committee is to meet today. It was also decided to have printed 200 copies of the proposed constitution after it Is revised and to send a copy to each licensed real estate broker, with the request that suggestions which they may wish to make concerning changes in it be presented at another meeting of all the licensed brokers which Is to be held upon the call of the presiding ofilcer. At yesterday's meeting the proposition that the city purchase Fort McHenry and convert It into a public park was much discussed. A number of the brokers opposed It upon the ground that the fort Is now used very much as a park, and If the military feature were eliminated the result will be the loss of some trade to the city and also the loss of the protection which Is afforded by the presence of a military post. Willing: To Compromise.' "I think." said the amateur palmist, slanting the maiden's hand toward the light in order to see the lines more plainly "I think you are going to be married twice." - "Oh, dear," she said, "can't you just cut off the think and maka it s daad iiue once t" Montreal WERE CAUGHT ASLEEP Men Charged With Burglary Arrested Near Parkton. ROBBERY AT NEW FREEDOM Railroad Station Safe Attacked Wltb Nitroglycerine And Charles Schae-fer, Engineer, Held Up. Five men charged with being highwaymen, safe crackers, btirglars and robbers were arrested by detectives of the Northern Central Railway after a hard chase In a woods about a mile north of Parkton, In Baltimore county, yesterday afternoon. The men sought were armed with self-acting revolvers and ready for resistance, but for-, tunately they were taken by surprise when they probably thought they were safe from discovery and were taking a sleep. The prisoners were brought to Baltimore and locked up at the Central Police Station last evening. They gave the names of William Mull, 20 years old; William O'Brien, 29; James Fenton, 25; John Lane, 30, and John Wilson, 23. O'Brien gave his occupation as a printer and the others said they are laborers. They" are held for the authorities of York county, Pennsylvania, on charges of breaking Into the railroad station at New Freedom and attempting to blow open the iron safe and of assaulting and robbing Cnaries scnaerrer, an engineer of the road, of a silver watch and a $10 note. Sen Freedom Burglary. Detective Charles Gorman, lieutenant of the railroad company's police force, assisted by Detectives A. C. Breneman, Jesse Talbot, Grant Hare and Milton Hershey, made the capture.- The station at New Freedom was broken Into late Wednesday night, Detective Gorman said, and a desperate attempt was made to blow open the safe. Nitroglycerine was used and a short fuse, with caps at each end, was inserted Into holes and lighted. The detonation of-the caps was Intended to make a jar sufficient to explode the nitroglycerine and blow open the safe. Evidence showed that two attempts were made and both failed, presumably because a wedge Inserted In the joint of the safe door had broken off and too much air was allowed to get In. It was said there was about $100 In the safe. Engineman Held Up. Mr. Shaeffer runs an engine ,that is used to help freight trains up the heavy grade to the summit, near New Freedom. He had just left his engine and was going to his home In New Freedom when, in passing along the platform at the station, he saw a light in the building and stopped to see the cause of it. As he resumed his way and nearly reached the end of the platform a man grabbed him. Four others flashed the muzzles of revolvers in his face and in chorus demanded that he give up all the valuables he had. He pulled away and started to run, when he was knocked down and rendered unconscious for a short time. He was relieved of his open-faced sliver watched and $10 that he had in a pocket-book. Then he was taken back on the platform, told of the danger of telling of his experience and advised to quietly go on home. He went, but told of the occurrence as soon after as possible. All of the men, he said, wore black masks. Long Chase And Capture. The detectives went to work early yesterday morning, learned that two of the men had been in a hotel at New Freedom during the night and drank beer. Finally they pawned an open-faced gold watchfor $5 with the barkeeper, bought two pints of whisky and left. They were traced to a freight car below the station, where they had been seen by a trackwalker and driven out. In the car one of the empty flasks was found. The detectives searched the country for 10 miles around. They got on a trail again a mile east of Bentley Station and followed It to near Parkton, where they searched a woods and found the men asleep In camp on the ground. Each detective selected a man, pointed a revolver at him and then all were called upon to surrender. Two attempted to draw revolvers, but soon gave up. Brought To Baltimore. When brought to Baltimore and searched at detective headquarters two new Colt's revolvers and two of the Harrington & Richardson make, all 3S caliber and fully loaded, were taken from four of them. One carried a bottle of nitroglycerin. They had a bar of eoap, which the'detect-Ives said is nsed in closing up holes In a safe before blowing it; a lot of small pieces of fuse and caps and a lot of chisels and other tools and a bunch of keys of all sizes and shapes. In one of the shoes worn by John Lane a $10 bill was found. The men had little to say. Detective Hogan helped take them to the station house. Detective Gorman said the railroad company has been given a lot of trouble by rob-hra in toil-. TT snsnfpts that the nrlson- ers also blew open a safe at Aberdeen, Harford county, several weeks ago. A hotel and a store were robbed at York Haven recently. Three of the men say they belong In New York. Captain of Detectives Pumphrey says It Is a great capture, and It is likely the railroad company will substantially commend the five detectives in its service for tho good work. New Freedom Is the Junction of the Northern . Central and Stewartstown railways and a large amount of money Is handled there. No one lives In the building, and Agent John B. Koller resides about 50 yards away. He was not aware of what had taken place until after the robbers had taken their flight. " ESCAPED FROM TOIYSON JAIL Geo. Williams, Colored, Was Under Indictment For Larceny. Lieutenant Fullem, Central Police Station, had received information from the Canton Police Station late last night that GeorgeWllllams, colored, Indicted by the grand jury of Baltimore county for stealing articles from Eratus Levy's resort, near River View Park, had escaped from the jail at Towson.
