McGUIRE, Carl J.

Jail Pair in "Lark" That Caused Death
Alleged Companions of McGuire Who Fell From Horse in Frostburg.
Joe Madero, 29, and Emmett McAteer, 28, of Frostburg are held in the Allegany County jail under $500 bond each, charged with unauthorized use of a horse on which Carl J. McGuire, 29, of Frostburg was also riding and fatally injured when thrown to the street. The animal was struck by an automobile early yesterday morning on Grant street, Frostburg. McGuire sustained a fractured skull and died later in Miners' Hospital. County Coroner George P. Paulman investigated the death of McGuire, yesterday. After questioning Murrel R. Sturkey of Baltimore, a salesman, whose car collided with the horse, Starkey was absolved from blame. Starkey said the animal ridden by McGuire, without bridle or saddle, was apparently running away. The State Police were told the animal, was taken from the Race livery stable in Frostburg and ridden around the streets. The investigating officers learned all three men were on the animal taken from a stall during the night apparently as a lark. Madero and McAteer jumped off the animal, but McGuire continued to hold on as it ran out McCulloh street and collided with the machine. Funeral services for McGuire wll be held Monday at 9:30 in St. Michael's Catholic Church. Burial will be in the church csmetery. Madero and McAteer were given a hearing this morning in Peoples Court. The animal was only bruised.
