Running west . on Washington street
the Los Angeles railway car neared
Burlington avenue, where the Inter

street line at right angles. On the Uni

Washington street from the south at a
high rate iof speed. Both cars slacked
their speed. . ' ■
Motdrman W. W. Gould of the Wash

remarked ..to the motorman , that they
would cross. first because there was a
car behind. '■:■• ■'■■'
Collide With Terrible Impact
As Gould ■ turned on ' the • power he
looked behind at the conductor and in
another instant his car crashed into the
sid« of the University car, overturning
It. Passengers In his coarh were thrown
from their seats »md the front anil

the terrible Impact of the steol framed
cars and several worn seriously hurt.
Among t.hoso who boarded the Wash

members of the Loyal Ladles" Sewing
society of Stantnn post of W. It. C,
who were going to a party given at the
home of Mrs. Alice Prid'hurd. There
were twenty-nine In the party, but. only
nineteen boarded the car because It was
too crowded. Many of those who did
board the car were Injured.
But few parfsengers In either enr knew
of the Impending danger, nnd being
tnken unawares the result of the ter
rific shock was more horrible.
The Washington street car was
crowded almost to Its fullest capacity
and a panic resulted.
Maddened by the shock the passengers
scrambled to their feet from the tangled
piles of humanity into which they had
been thrown and crushed each other in
getting to exits.
James Huey, a district messenger liv
ing at 2400 Hoover street, was the only
passenger on the University car who
realized the danger. Seeing that a col
lision was- inevitable he li-npi'ii under
the guard rail of the front end just
an the crash came.
Car Crushes Victim
When the Wushlngton street , ear
crashed into the Intururban car, the
latter was turned over on its side. The
dozen or more occupants were hurled
from their seutu Into piles of broken

Ex-Oouncllrnun Davenport was sit

front seat. When the crash came he
was pitched through the left entry-way
