j REMODELED HAND CAR JUMPS
I Track on Dino Ridge, Killing Ono
ami Injuring Three.
(Anderson Daily Mail.)
A motor-drivon lever car, occu
pied by Ave railroad section foremen,
jumped the track near the one-mile
post on tho Dluo Ridge railroad east
of Relton Sunday afternoon, killing
ono and injuring three o.thers. The
mon were:
W. Arthur McDonald, section fore
man, from Hodges, killed by having
bis head crushed,
J. H. Dunn, section fireman, Bel
ton, two ribs broken.
C. E. Pitts, section foreman, Chap
pels, bruised on nose and shaken up.
J. C. Robertson, section foreman,
Williamston, hand and face scratched
and bruised.
B. E. Smith, not hurt.
Men Woro Joy Riding.
According to William Archer, su
perintendent of the Blue Ridgo rail
road, the men were using tho car
without permission, having taken it
out to show some of tho visiting fore
men tho working of -M?o machino.
Tho brotherhood of section foremen
met yesterday afternoon at Belton,
Dunn told Mr. Archer this morning.
?McDonald asked which of the fore
men it was who had the,Ford hand
car, rho machine he referred to was
a lever car, upon which had been
mounted a Ford engine. This gave
a powerful motor car for the seclion
foreman's use, capable of a speed of
about 35 miles an hour. Some fifteen
foremen went down to the Blue
Ridgo yards to look at tho outfit, and
Dunn started up to give four of the
men A. trial ride on tho machine.
They went about two miles out to
ward Anderson and turned back to
wards Belton. When they reached
the one-nillo post of tho Blue Ridgo
the car was derailed, with the disas
trous results.
That the machine was being oper
ated at a high rate of speed is evi
denced,.said Mr. Archer, by tho fact
that when lt left the rails lt jumped
about five ties before it struck the
ground nnd continued along tho ties
until it turned over.
McDonald was thrown out of tho
car, upon tho track and in front of
the car. One of the wheels of the
car struck his head as thc car passed
his body, inflicting a horrible wound
on his skull. The man was placed in
a passing automobile, still alive, and
a record run was made to Anderson.
Tho patient died, however,' just as
the car reached the outskirts of tho
eily and before he was ever taken to
the hospital.
Mr. McDonald is survived by his
wifo and two small children. Mrs.
McDonald carno on to Anderson last
night, thinking that her husband was
hore in the hospital.
Dunn is resting easy this morning,
and no serious trouble ls expected in
his case. None of the others was se
riously hurt.

Authorities have made no announce
ment concerning an investigation.
Owens, who had been arrested last
night on a charge of theft, was try
ing to escape after having been ta
ken out of the Jail by the officers,
and tho negro killed Choat as tho
latter attempted to prevent lils es
cape. Tho negro, suffering from a
gunshot wound in the faco, inflicted
by Chief of Pollco Lummus, fled and
attempted to drown himself. He was
rescued and taken to a hospital.
Tho threatening attitude of tho
crowd that gathered about the hos
pital causod tho removal of the ne

were battered down nftor iSberiff
St rango refused to give up tho koys
to tho mob which had followed him.
Municipal Judge Barney was told
that "this is no timo for petty talk"
