Honolulu Papers Makes
Freak Story Of Accident
This is the way the Star-Bulletin's
freak-writer handled the accident of
Joseph Swartz, who was hurt recently
on the Kahului railroad. The paper's
artist had interestingly Illustrated the
story also. The write-up was as fol
lows: Kate conspired against Joseph
Swartz, an employe of the Kahului
Railroad company, Maul, when it led
him to accept a seat the other day on
the front end of a locomotive.
That Fate had something up her
sleeve at the time is evident from the
fact that just before the locomotive
reached a certain point in the road a
tree on the bank toppled over.
This would not have been so bad
had not Fate arranged to place a tele
phone wire in the way of the falling
tree. The telephone wire was the final
warp in the web.
It caught Swartz by the leg, and,
according to the brief report of the
accident, Swartz was taken to the hos
pital at Puunene. The exact nature
of the accident, whether he was
thrown to the side of the track or
against the end of the locomotive, is
not stated. The report was filed
with the public utilities commission.
