IN ORDER to escape a stream of water that was coming his way, Pete Richard started to run last night at the Greilick fire with the bad result that he fell into the Bay. Luckily the water was only 18 inches deep, but he wondered if it would have been better to face the fire hose. John Nelson, who started the trouble, had been holding onto the fire hose when it became clogged sending water to only a trickle.

People scattered and another young man rested on a pile, which turned out to be a shadow, and also landed in the drink. He escaped before his name could be secured.

CUTTING THROUGH the big intake pipe at the water works without shutting down the pump that supplies the entire city with water, was a remarkable feat accomplished at the water works yesterday. Had the water been shut off, serious consequences would have ensued as it would have been impossible to turn it back on until the work was completed, and at the time there were four fires. A special machine secured by the A.P. Smith Manufacturing Company of Newark, New Jersey enabled this process to take place.
