MRS. C. MITSCH'S, J 31 4 Third Are.
The inquest on the retrial of J. R
Hines, the workman in the employ of the
Phoenix Bridge company, killed at the
Rock Island viaduct late yesterday sf er
Boon, ss britfly detailed in last evening's
Argl'S, was conducted by Coroner Hawes
last evening, before a jury composed of
Charles E. Hodgson, foreman, Phil. Mil
ler, C. E. Evans, C. A. Mirtin, E. S.
Bowman and L. V. Eskhart.
The first witness examined ws.3 F. O.
Taylor, of Scranton, Pa., assistant fore
man of bridge construction for the Phoe
nix Bridge company, who testified that
at 3 30 yesterday afternoon a crew was
engaged raising the point of the first
span ef the Rock Island wagon bridge.
The deceased was standing on the first
pier out from the shore, following up
the work of raising with blocking, when
a pin broke, and a piece of casting broke
at the same time, which was thrown in
such a manotr that it struck Hines in the
riht temple, throwing him through
the bridge and to the froz;n sur
race below, a distance of about
18 feet. Mr. Taylor testified that Mr.
Hines wits in the proper discharge of his
duty, and that in his opinion, the tools
and implements were in good thapj and
condition, and he knew of no reason for
thi ir breaking.
Dr. W. II. Ludewig testified to being
summoned to the bridge, and driving
ttiere with Dr. Barth, found the man
dead. Dr. Bernhardi had Dreceded
him, and invited him to make
an examination. It was found that the
deceased had sustained a wound about
tte right angle of the right eye, the parts
being much swollen and discolored, and
a fracture of the frontal bone was found.
William Leweljn, a fellew workman ot
the deceased, also of Pooenixville, Pa.,
stated that he was near Mr. Hines when
the break occurred, but caught an iron
rod and thus broke the force of the fall.
and then dropped oa down. He quickly
recovered himself, and picking Hines up
in bis arms, found bim not dead but ua-
censclous, and carried him to the tool
house where he died within 15 minutes.
Frank P. Rossner, of Phoenixville,
corroborated F. O. Tavlor's testimony.
He had known Hines since he was one
year old. He was a single man and aN
ways r.sided at Phoenixville.
N C. Taylor, ot Scranton, foreman of
construction of bridges from the Phoenix
comDany, testified that the accident was
caused by a pin breaking, the whole
weight of the bridge being thrown upon
the other side, thereby causing an iron
bed plate to break, and a piece of which
flew and hit Hines in the head, causing
fatal injuries. The whole weight of
the bridge, witness thought, wm 150
The jury after hearing this testimony
returned a verdict that J R. Hines came
to his death "by being s ruck by a piece
of iron cauced by a pin breaking while
raising a bridire for the Phoenix Bridge
cnmDioy, at Rock Island. 111., on tte
28th day of Dect mber, 1891."
The remains were taken in charge by
Supt. Taylor, who sent thum to Knox's
undertaking rooms for preparation for
shipment to Phoenixville, whera thev
thev will be sent by Mr. Taylor for burial
in chart e of William Lewellvn, who Ml
with the unfortunate roan, but who sayed
himself by graopine an iron rod.
