The PennnylvauU and Ohlomlnei-s reag

those aiiMing the other delegations, who
an- opposed to a settlement on the basis
proposed unites the proposition Is made to

The ground of their opposition is that
uch a MMilement would be unfair to the

would disrupt theorganiz-ition. Theymalii
lAin tint honorable defeat all along the line
would be more creditable to the organiza

Four Person Narrowly Escape
THOUGHT THE TRACK CLEAR
While Mr. Carl Auerhnch und Wife,
and Two Friends- Were Driving
Over the Baltimore and Ohio's
Trucks at I Stf'ei t it Train Dasl.e.l
Into the Carriage, W reciting It.
Anothei serious and perhaps iatal ae
ciileut occurred last night on the lalti'
moie and Ohio Kailroad. The victims
or (he catastrophe were Mr. and Mrs Carl
Auernach.ot No. 100 Sixth ntreeL north
west, and Mr. and Ahs. M. L. Rosenberg,
of Norfolk, Va.
Mr. Auerbach fs the haberdasher at No.
800 Seventh street northwest, and his wife
if a sistei of Mr. ltoseuburg.wlio, with his
wife, has been Visiting In Washington for
some days past. Yesterday evening thej
drove yvT jHto Nurtlie.ist Washington,
where Mr. RosJiiburg's ami Mrs.
AucihHch'M parents reside and
remained until ahout 10 o'clock,
when they started to return home. They
occupied a liandsome double sealed car
riage, which was drawn by one horse.
The twe gentlemen sat together on the
fiont seat while their wives occupied the
ee.it lu the rear. (In their return they drove
slowly up Florida avenue.
They were busllj' engaged in conversa
tion and as they tinned Into M street at
First anil crossed the tracks of the Metro
politan Branch or the Baltimore ami Ohio
road, Mr. Auerbach, who wasdrlviug.looked
to the north, ,-iiid seeing no olmtructlon or
train coining from that direction, started
to iliive across.
Tlie railroad gates were up, 11$, In fact,
they are all night, after 9 o'clock, the
hour at which the gatcrnan leaves his
post of duty, and the occupants of the
carriage saw no danger. Just as the
horse had cleared the north-bound track
aud the forward wheels of the carriage,
they were struck by engine No. 7i;i, coming
out from the depot? It was a special
train composed of one or two coaches, in
charge of Conductor Daniel L. Grimes,
Engineer J, C. noopor and Foreman W. A.
Conrad, and en route for Brunswick.
Accoidmg to the' statements of the en
gincer and fireman, they endeavored to
warn the occupants of the carriage of the
danger, but without success, and it was
then too late to stop the train In time to
prevent an accident-. Fortunately, how
ever, the train w.as not running at a high
rate of speed or nothing would have ooved
the occupants of the carriage from meeting
the .same fate as befall Judge Claughton
and Miss Custls jjot luig ago. ,
"When the train truck the vehicle the
fout persons wee -liurled violently in a
many directions, nit 'fortunately escaped
the deadly wheels of Ulie locomotive. The
cnrrlage was spllhterel into matchwood,
thus frcemg Uie; horse, which started to
rim away, but was captured by several
witnesses to the!tnccident.
The train "waijj shopped utter a short

for an ambulance, Iftit they refcted to
go t". u hospital and were removed to
Mr Auerbach'h i-Jme, No. 1209 Sixth
street northwest. andJDr. Kolipinski was
called and dressed Che wounds.
Mr. RoLenherg wan probably the most,
seriously injured. He Is ntoitt twenty
eight years old, and for some time put has
lic.n in delicate health and Mifferlnggreatly
rrom a nervous disease. He sustained .1
long, ilep gnMton the lert cheek, and was
olhe-iwlse budly cut and bruised, and It
js feared iniernally injured. It is al-o
feared that thesLoek, owlog to his nervous
condition, will I.e more thnu he can stand.
Mrs. Aiierbach's rjght arm was broken
.ilKive the elbow, and she also sustained
several cuu and bruises. Mr. Auerbach
Is sixty years of age, and for several
years has not been well, and the terrible
slmkliif. up. beshl s the numerous cuts and
contusions, it is feared may prove serious
to .him. Mrs. Rosenberg was the least
injured of all. though her clothing was
nearly lorn from her tody. In Tact, the
skirt was ground under the train, but she
escaped with only a few slight bruises.
Dr Kolipinski remained with the in
jured ones until a late hour last night,
and stated that he would not be able to
say juss what the result of their wounds
would be at present. Mr. and Mrs. Auer

Harrisr.u, wire or George Harrison, at
Beitsvilie on Monday eeiiing and inquired
now far it was to Washington. He had
the peculiar mustache, eye anil nose. He
cat net' no bundle. The thing which struck
Mrs. Harrison was that behind this tramp
toddled a little black, thin, short-haired
dog. The Harrison home is built directly
by tlie side of the Washington pike and
Mrs. Hurris-in watched the man as he
trudged 011 toward Washington. He wore
dark cuthc. This lady noticed a pe
culiarity about this man whiclt the re
porter has heard from one or two other
independent sources and which has not
heretofore been mentioned in type. This

A powerful glass was applied yester

-.With a Jnrge percentage of men, when
they are in an idle humor, they will toy
with their lend pencil, and in nine cases
out of ten they will write the first thing

of their sweetheart or of their home.
The reporter yesterday went through the
directories of nearly every city In the

The Times mnn drove yesterday to the
home or Mr. George W. Stnnsfield.a fann

Washington mihi Baltimore pike on the
morning of August 10, which was Tues
dsy He recalls this because it was the
day befoic the Scaggsville tournament
As he ueured the Bull Tavern near Eelts
vlllc lie saw two men walking ahead and
going in the direction of Washington. The
sun was just up. As he overtook the men
they asked for a ride. One was white and
the other colored. The white man seemed
frshl Washed and shaved. He had u
slubbish mustache, about the color of
whl'-h Mr. Stansfleld could not be posi
tive. He had a "peaked" nose.
He said he was from a little place in
York State, not far from the city of New
York, and that he was by trade a painter.
He had worked two weeks in Baltimore
He said he had been all over the country.
He said he had slept in the woods uear
Laurel the night beiore. He had a crooked
mouth and "sort of chawed his words"
There were wide gaps between his teeth.
He made some Inquiries about the police
as they neared Washington. He used dark
Uiewlng tobacco. He left the farmers
wagon at Fittecnth and Maryland avenue.
He had gray pants. Farmer Stansfleld
said this man was rather small and tiiln
and 'ookPd as though he had consumption
This was probably not the murderer.
The mnn wanted is a big mau. He was
further on the road to "Washington when
Mrs. Harrison saw him on Monday atter
noon than where Farmer Stansfleld picked
up tho man Tuesday morning. The mur
derer would not have told a man coming
from tie direction of Laurel 'thai lie had
slept m the woods near Laurel the night
before Tlie kind of tobacco that Fanner
Sransfield's mun chewed ou Tuesday
morning was not the kind of tobacco which
the murderer bougnt at Farrell's store in
Laurel on Friday. Farmer Stansfleld is
related to Policeman Marr of the Fifth
precinct, and he spoke to the policeman
about the stranger. Farmer Stansfield
could identify him.
The Times man drove last evening to
the home of Sylvester Smith, in Anne
Atundcl county, Md.
He said that during the lust week in
June he was working on the place of
Louis Haslup. near Savage. In an un
occupied house on the place he saw -a
mnn and a woman. They were tramps.
Ihcrc were two or three wet days and
he came to know the couple pretty well.
The man said his name was Brown. It
was cither Bill or Jim Brown. He said
that Ut- was from Baltimore, where he had
been cheated out of property on Stockholm
street by a lawyer. He was a tall, raw
boned man with one eye. The left eye
was out and the lid dosed. He wore
corduroy troupers with a patched scat. The
n-a.i and woman worked half a day each
at packing peas foi Nat Wheeler and John
Wheeler, near Savage- The woman had
blao: hair tied in a kuot at tlie back
of her head. She was a small woman.
Mr. Sylvester Smith went to the town
hall at Laurel and po'sltively identified
the black and shrunken hand on the skele
ton as the hand of the woman he had
seen over two moi-tlis before.
The murdered woman did not have
bl.i"li hair, and it was too short for a
Tsciiye knot at tlie.backof the head. She
had not b"p;i tramplntr since June, becaus
br feet were blistered. The murderer liad
two eyes. Nobody claims to have sea him
in curduroy truusr. Editor Baldwin, of
the Laurel Democrat, referred ta his

days duriuir the last week in June n that

is the nearest house to the scene of the
