      John Bissell, the uncle of Charles Frederick Spang, the rich young Pittsburger arrested for trying to shoot citizens in the Tenderloin, has wired the police here to take all pistols from the young man and to detain him under close guard until he recovers.
      Spang is still in Bellevue Hospital, but Dr. Frederickson said to-day that he was perfectly rational.
      Pittsburg, April 20 -- John Frederick Spang is a peculiar character. His life here was one round of pleasure.
      It was well known to his friends that he was addicted to the use of drugs. He was very fond of revolver shooting and was a dead shot. He has half a dozen automobiles. He has unlimited funds from his father's estate. He is a large stockholder in Spang, Chalfant & Company.
