Herbert A. Sawyer, Boston representa?
tive of Gorham & Co., silversmiths, at
Fifth avenue and 3.")th ?treet, committed
suicide during the rush hour In the sub?
way last night by hurling himself in
front of a local subway train as 1*. ?II
pulling Into the Grand Central Station.
He was killed Instantly. The police
learned that Sawyer had been taking
treatment for h'.s nerves at M u Moon s
sanatorium, in White Plains, and had
left there only a few hours before he
killed himself.
A dispatch from Boston says that Pla?
yer had recently completed a fine new
home in Newton Highlands, and the
worry over this caused his breakdown
Samuel E. Lewis, of No. 4.37 Troy ave?
nue, Brooklyn, seems to have been the
only person who observed Sawyer clor.ely
Just before he threw himself before the
train. He told the police he saw the
man enter the subway at 7.15 o'clock
and walk about for several mlnufes.
Sawyer did not appear unduly agitated
a moment before he threw himself on
the tracks. <}n the contrary, he sur?
veyed the approaching train calmly as
it was drawing Into the station.
Lewis had been standing close to the
e?lge of the platform, near Sawyer, as
the train came in. but withdrew g pace
or two as the first car approached. He
expected to see the man beside him do
the same thing, but instead Sawyer de?
liberately took a step forward, toward
the tracks, and when the first car ?vas
only a few yards distant threw himself
With great vigor off the platform
His body landed sq'i.'ieiy between the
rails, and before Patrick Mul\aney. the
motormaa. could apply bis easorg-ency
l'i akee or shut off his power the boa'.
disappeared under th?; train.
The couplings ,,f the first gOX ?aught
Baw-fer"? body and drew it beneath 111 ? -
wheels, aim the tram was not brought
to a stop until the body was 1,.
under the first truck.- of the second ? m
Platform Crowded at Tim?.
The platform was crowded af the tfflM
of the accident; and many winner? wait?
ing then for trains who heard the < lie?
of ihe men ?landing on the platform ran
from the pla.-e in terror. As goon as the
irain ha<! b-en brought to a stop the
ni.etorman and Pauvltnan K??ubsky. of
the West Nth surent police station,
Jumped to the tracks and crept under
the body ,,f the car until they found
Sawyer, wedged bet?veen the two sets of
wheel.* of the forward trucks.
Dr. Vtetor, ?if the New York Hospital,
who had been summoned, accompanied
the men. and a single glance at the
mangled form was sufticier.t to cominee
bim that life was already extinct It
required the aid of a wrecking crew with
a train jack before the body could be
removed, traffic on the southbound line
being delayed in the mean while.
After the body had been removed to
the West ?Hhh street station a sear? h of
the clothing produced several cards with
Sawyer's name. There was also a bank?
book, several railroad th'kets on New
Kngland lines, a sum of money and
pieces of jewelry. There was also a coat
Check of the Grand I'nion Hotel, an 1
this was the means of identifying the
man.
The police eommundated with the ho?
tel and were told that Herbert Sawyer
was not registered there, but that hi*
wife and hla brother were guests tMere.
The clerk *Uao said that Herber! Sawyer
had visited the hotel during the fore.
Boon, had checked his roat and left.
Over the telephone a man who said h?
was Her!?? it Sawyer's trother, In reply
to inquiries as to whether he knew where
Herbert Sawyer was, sai?l, in an ex.ited
tone:
"No. he did not register here. He his
threatened to harm himself several timea
? has he done It this time?"
Wife Was Seeking Him.
When told that his hrother had killed
himself by throwing himself In front of
a SObway train. th? man s.?id Mrs. Her?
bert Sawyer was ai the hotel with him
and knew nothing of the a,'t Ot her hus?
band. After saving that he would go at
once to the police station to identify the
body, th^ man hung up the telephone.
He did not appear at the police station.
