What might have been a fatal accident
occurred yesterday afternoon
about 3 o'clock at the now flve-itory
business house of T. T. Hutchinson &
Co., on Main street, below Twelfth.
This building, It will be remembered,
occupies the site of the structure that
collapsed with such terrible loss of life
The new building Is Just receiving the
finishing touches and among the other
workmen employed there are several of
the Caldwell Manufacturing Company's
men, who are putting In metal ceilings.
One, D. C. Gray, was at work on a scaffold
on the fourth floor at the hour men*1

elevator shaft and the employes of the
store were supposed to keep the elevator
unused. Unfortunately, a boy
who wanted to see the painters on the
top floor got on the elevator, and before
he could be stopped had started up the
shaft It crashed into the scaffolding.
forcing It up to the celling, where it
went to pieces, throwing Gray to the
floor under some of the timbers. The
boy in the elevator escaped without inJury
by jumping oft nt the third floor
Just as the scaffold wa? struck. The.

was extricated and was found
to be badly bruised. At flr.it it was
thought that his hip was broken, but
Dr. F. L. Hupp, upon mnking an examination,
found that It was only severely
twisted. Ho was taken to the City hospital
for treatment. He will be out In a
few days. It was a narrow escape
from death of both Gray .and the boy,
whose name could not be learned.

The people of Wheeling are getting
their natural gas for 15 cents a thousand,
whllo in Pittsburgh it costs the
consumer 22\i cents net, says the Pittsburgh
Commercial Gazette. The
Wheeling rate Is established by a contract
with the city which council has
Just refused to modify to permit a
charge of it cents net. a compromise
between the Wheeling rate and the
Pittsburgh rate. It Is somewhat remarkable,
however, that several hundred
people have petitioned for the
concession to the gas company. George
li. Heard, of Pittsburgh, general manager
of the Natural Gas Company of
West Virginia, speaking of the matter
"The council of Wheeling does not appear
to bo convinced that natural gas
cannot be produced, transported and
distributed at 15 cents. But we llnd that
consufrlfcrs are open to conviction, and a
large number of them have signed a petition
asking council to advance the
price. In the belief that the natural gas
business will diminish and Anally cense
unless greater Inducements are held
out to those engaged In it. The feeling
IB ail the Stronger now mm uicre is u
prospect of the resumption of the manufacture
of glass In the Wheeling factories,
which passed Into the hands of
the United States Glass Company three
years ago, and were soon thereafter
shut down by that company to tho great
Injury of the entire community. This
resumption will be brought about by
the re-purchase of the factories by
Wheeling parties, and as natural gas is
of great value in glass making, they
naturally desire a continuance of the
buMness and an Increase in the supply
sufficient to run the works. The question
1r a vital one for Wheeling, but as
the citizens are Intelligent and enterprising,
1 have no doubt but they will
finally see in which direction their interest
