A MOTORMAN IS INJURED
His Leg Is Fractured When the Vesti

of the Collision.
A blind horse owned by John Gr.i

Long View street car line Saturday
night. As a result the horse is dead,

left leg, between the knee and the hip.
Motorman Painter was running his car
west on Eighteenth avenue abo:t !)::'.
and was sending the car along at a
rapid rate of speed. There is no street
light between Twenty-second an 1
Thirtieth streets, and the niotornian
did not see the horse on the track in
the low place near Twenty-fonrfi
street. The headlight did not re
veal the stray animal until the car
was upon it. It was then too late t;
prevent hitting the horse.

The car hit the horse with such
force that the horse was thrown it )
against the vestibule. The windows
were shattered, the controller box
twisted back against the niotoiinaii.
and the whole front, end of the car ren
dered a complete wreck. The broken
controller box struck the niotornian
in such a way that it fractured his leg.
William Smart, the conductor, at one
summoned the police, who removed
the injured man to St. Anthony's hos
pital. The horse, which was killed al
most instantly, was carted away, an 1
the damaged car taken to tiie barn,
where it will spend several days in the
Wild stories were circulated jester
day and today regarding the ease, but
reports from the hospital today are to
the erf.'Ct that Mr. Painter is doing
as well as could be expected, anl
while his injuries are painful, they are
not regarded as serious.
