A Mre Killeil hush of the Ac
It was indeed an exciting exper
ience that a ear load of passengers
had on Kim street hill at 2:oi this
morning, including as it did a ride
down the hill at the rate of 4o miles
an hour to the curve at Seventh ave
nue thence through the street a half
block north on Kim. and involving the
rendering of the driver. Andrew Ol
son, and a passenger, Frank Quayle.
unconscious and the injury also of a
boy named Hobbins. and the killing
outright of o;:e of the horses attach
ed tot he ear.
St.i-.yiit tin .cei4lelit .
The ear was No. 114. running as
an extra to accommodate a party of
young people, w hich had been held
at the residence of V. 1". (Juayle on
Thirteenth avenue, in honor of his
son. Frank. It being beyond Un
tune when the power house of t he
railway company iiuts down, horses
were used to move the ear. which
was in charge of Andrew Olson, a
dinner driver in the old horse car
days, and now employed a- a nilit
wiper at the Moli tie av en no car barn s.
The car started from Thirteenth av -line
with a load of ." people, all young
folks except Mavor William M t'oiio
chie ami Mi s. Met 'onochie. w ho
had been made special guests of the
occasion. The c:u- was net more than
i third of the way on its descent of
the hill, when Diier tUson realized
that he wa- loMiiuf his control of it.
He ill aill attempted to check the
ear and sought t. hold the horses
back. He sas that suddenly some
thing strm k him i:: the stomach and
that was the !:el he remembers. The
car gained in speed rapidlt. the
horses became frenzied and one of
them fell upon the rail and was
drained nearlv a block under the
car. the wheels passing over
its neck and fracturing it. the ani
mal dying instantly. The other
horse broke away and escaped injury.
The driver was pulled over the dash
board and dragged along over the
ground about luufcct and rendered
unconscious. The ear shot on down
the hill, and instead of making the
curve at Seventh avenue, kept right
ahead, cutting through the rough
street and linaUv slopping half way
through the block in front of the
Webber mansion, a peculiar feature
being that from the point where tin
car left the rails ami where the marks
of the tlanges appear there are
about live feet which shows
that t h'e ear must have been going at
such speeil as to fairlv leap from the
I.eaeetl f.r Tl-ir l.iv-..
While the accident was over in
much less time than it takes to relate
the story of it, there was naturally a
ifreat ileal of alarm felt
amonixthe passengers, ami three of
the number leaped tor their lives,
Frank Jnayle. hen Whitney and a
son of F. K. l.obbins being among the
number who in tiiis way were in
jured, and had it not been for the
presence of mind of Mayor Mct'ono
i hie in cautioning all to keep their
scats, and pre'.enting others get ting
out the doors of the car. the result
miirht have been much worse. As
soon as the ear stopped. Driver Olson
and Frank (.uayle were found uncon
scious and taken In the Kim
street drug store and lr. My
ers summoned. Young Quayle soon
revived and was taken to his home,
w here he is rapidly recovering, a
few painful bruises being the extent
of his injuries. Mr. Olson did not
entirely regain consciousness tint il
this morning when he said the last
he could remember was when the car
began to slip. He is suffering from
a number of bruises and also coi,
cusMon, t he hit ter ailment causing
some apprehension as to his recovery,
although the attending physician
thinks now that he will get along all
right. Young Ilobbins had his hand
bruised and cut somewhat, but not
The Cams of It.
The accident is attributable to two
causes. One is the lack of a tongue
and the other the unusually heavy
load, w hich heightened and increased
the car's speed. The ear, one of the
old horse cars, had been rebuilt since
the svndieate acquired possession of
the system, and had been used as a
trailer of late. It was generally in
good condition, and is, strange to
say, scarcely damaged at all by the
accident. It has had quite a record,
being the only ear rescued at the
time of the destruction of the
Moline avenue car houses and
stables a few years ago,
it had run away down Klin street hill
before when running as a horse car
there before the introduction of elec
tricity, and a few months ago nar
rowly escaped being burned up on
the Milan branch by the explosion of
a lamp in it. The horse was a splen
did big animal valued at $175, one of
a team the company has retained for
track work and emergencies.

The old-time railroad engine, the
'John Bull," mention of which has
heretofore been made as one of the
World's Fair exhibits, has been
pounding along toward the west the
past week on its way to Chicago, and
if no accident occurred it arrived at
the World's Fair grounds at 3 o'clock
this afternoon. The engine is CO
vears old and is .drawing two coaches
57 vears old. One of these coaches
was discarded 25 years ago by the old
Camden & Amboy road and pur
chased by a farmer at. South Amboy,
who took it a short distance from the
rail's ami converted it into a chicken
coop. An agent for the Pennsylvania
road out hunting for relies, discov
ered this chicken coop coach and pur
chased it for the purpose of exhibit
ing it at the fair. The history of the
other coach is somewhat similar. It
was rescued from a Jersy City lum
ber yard. George W. Boyd, assis

charge of the veterans.

A lone on the ITairle.
The day was in that transitory
state when twilight lingers in the lap
of dav and darkness struggles for the
ascendency. The sun hung in a great
red ball of lurid flame betwixt heaven
and earth; there was a feeling of pro
found quiet which seemed to settle
on all things animate and inanimate.
The birds, the insects, the very trees
and sprouting plants were for the
moment hushed as if in expectancy of
some unforseen, some inexplicable
something which seemed to pervade
the very atmosphere. A bull frog
o-urgled" softly as he fell into the lim
pid "water. Suddenly, over the brow
of a distant hill, there appeared a
solitary man, seated astride a great
bay horse; he cast one long sweeping
o-lance aronnd him and then went
back over the brow of the hill again.
And that same night over 700 people
were turned away unable to gain ad

TOMBSTONE FOR A TABLE.
An Impoverished Family in a I.orrely
Chief of Police Miller and Night
Captain Kramer made a visit to a
lonely and improvised home at the
head of Seventeenth street, near the
old grave yard, late yesterday after
noon. The police had been notified
of a family there in a destitute con
dition, hence the visit. The officers
found a shanty built of old boards
and tombstones and a woman and
four children living there as best
they could. The woman said that
her home had been in Cable and that
her husband had gone to Boston,
where he was taken sick ami could
not send "her any money. She had
come to the city, but was disappoint
ed in getting a house and had gone
out there and built a shanty.
A f.rewsosne Sight.
It was a grewsonie sight for the
officers who state that the family use
a marble slab out of the old grave
yard for a table from which to eat.
Chief Miller tried to persuade the
woman to come into town where the
family could be looked after, but she
refused. An effort will be made
again this evening in have them tak
en care of. No stove was in the
shanty, the cold being kept out by
hanging bed clot lies about t he cracks.
That the family have suffered much
during the recent cold weather there
can be no doubt, as the heavy rains
ha-- e liooded t he ground t here. Some
