Judge Jay Could Comes Near Being
Ground to Pieces on a Railway Tack :
A Very Close Call Statue to Iteecher
(ravelled at Brooklyn.
New York, June 35. The prosecution
of Ohauncey M. Depew, John D. Rocke-1
feller and other directors of the New York
and New Haven railway came to an end
yesterday, by Judge Van Brunt ordering
the jury to acquit them. He said, refer
ring to the argument made by tbe district
attorney, who cited a number of prece
dents, that all of them were ease where
principals hud directly authorized their
agents to do certain things. Tbe pretest
case was quke different. The directors of
the railroads are co-servants and agents
with the car-builders and others, and the.
New York and New Haven Railway com
pany is alone responsible. The evidence did
not connect the directors closely enough
with the heating of cars by stoves.
Acquitted All the Directors.
The directors were indicted as individ
uals, and not as directors. They could not
be held liable, in accord with tbw doctrine
of respondeat superior, because they them
selves were the servants of the railroad
corporation and the co-servants of thoe
who actually heated the oars contrary to
law. There was no ground for holding
t kern. As to the president, t here was some
ground of belief that he had active partici
pation. He therefore advised the jury to
acquit all the defendants except President
Clark. This was promptly dune.
Preident Chirk on Trial.
Charles B. Clark, president of the New
York, New Haven and Hartford railway,
then took the stand and was examined.
He said that he had been in the railroad
business for twenty-one years. The Baker
heater was the standard system of heating
on the New Haven road wlu-n be became
connected with it. That system continued
in vogue until the day of the Harlem tun
nel accident. No feasible or letter plan
of car heating had been Miiigested to the
board of director during his term cf
The .Iui1i;.'h Chari-e.
Othertest:nKT.y a takt-n. and the law
yers suii::iifd r.p. Then the judge cliargt-d
the jury. He declared that the company
came under the provisions of the statute
of lw. known as the car heating statute:
that the u.-e of such a system of car hei.t
kig as the Baker system was in violation
of such statute. If the jury considered
that the evidence showed that Clark had
authorized the dispatching of trains bear
ed with the Maker system, he was guilty
under the indictment. A geuera! authori
zation was s'.ifhciciit to warrant such a
The President Aciinitted.
The jury went out to deliberate nt 4:00
o'clock. At a:.V the jury came into court
for instructions. They wanted to know
wh.it roust ftutcd "vuilty knowledge."
Judge Van Brunt replied tlnre was va
such thing. If Mr. Clark had any knowl
edge, that was all that was necessary. It
was not a question of whether defendant
were an officer or not it was a question of
individual responsibility. The jury
thereupon retired once more. The jury
returned at !:.V with a verdict of nt
guilty. President Clark was he.irtily con
gratulated I y his friends and colleagues
upon Lis acquittal.
JAY GOULD'S CLOSE CALL.
The Wall Street Wizard Comes Near Be
ing C.rnund to Pieces.
New Yo'ijk. June 'Jo. It is not generally
known that Jay Gould had a very narrow
escape from leing gronnd to pieces by a
Hudson River railroad train a few days
ago at Irvington-on-the-Hudson. Mr.
Gould has kept his own counsel about the
matter, but the facts were given to a re
porter yesterday by an eye-witness of the
scene. Mr. Gould boards a New York lo
cal train every morning at the lrvington
station, to which he is always driven from
his country place, two miles away.
Heard the Yell of Danger.
The other morning, as he and a few oth
ers stepped across the tracks to take the
b:16 train for this city, a west-bound ex
press hove in sight, coming at a high rate
of speed, for it was a few minutes be
hind time. Its track was tbe one
between the statiou and the local
train, and standing on it all oblivi
ous to dancer were Mr. Gould and his fel-low-travelers.
A station hand saw the ex
press and gare a sharp yell of danger, at
which all save Mr. Gould turned quickly
and leaped back to the station platform.
Jut Jerked Away in Time.
Mr. Gould's thoughts were apparently
miles away, for his head was bent, and he
was perfectly heedless of his peril. Tbe
passengers were so horrified at the situa
tion, which developed in less than five sec
onds, that they seemed powerless to make
a move. Then Iiaggagemaster Bar
nard pushed through them, jumped
to the track, and grabbing tike rail
road king by the collar, jerked him
lack upon the platform, and before the
absent-minded capitalist knew what it
all meant the express had thundered by.
Iiy the time most of the sjiectators had re
gained their equanimity the rescued man
was on his train for the city as cool and
collected as though nothing had hap
pened. It is said, however, that Mr.
Gould actually thanked the baggageiuas-
ter ijetore leuving.
