There was no crowd about the bank or in
the bank during the morning. The public
generally supposed the bank had stood the
crucial test oi Saturday successfully and
would therefore pull through without fur

The southl ound ITalsted street car, the

standing on the foofooards. It was in
charge of Crndnctor Frank Harriett ami
Driver Charles Stahlneeker. At Forty
ninth street is a net work of tracks, and the
crossing has always been regarded as a
dangerous on?. A long freight train going
west had just passed, and the tower man,
George Burnt tt, had raised the gates. THs
was taken ti a sign.d that the way w.is
clear, and t-tahlnecker whipped up his

Barnett, in the watch tower, saw the
passenger train and realized that a collis

eould do noth ng. He at once lowered the
gates. But ho was too late, for the street
car -vas alreai y on the tracks and the pas
senger train v as only a few feet distant.
It was running at n lively rate of speed
and crashed ii to the side of the car. The
latter was tinned and then was thrown
thirty feet thiough the air. Few of ths
passengers had any warning of the acci

passenger trai i saw it coining and jumped
in time to savt themselves.

car, broken into many pieces, buried those
who had been riding in it and as the pas

many cries of rain and agony to be heard.
The d-ad were at once taken to

PLOT OF PRISONERS
Cold - Blooded Conspiracy of
New York Jailbirds.
LIVES SAVED BY AN DJTOEMEE,
Who Gets Ills Liberty for rotting the Au
thorities on Gnard A Well-Planned
Scheme for a Rreak for Freedom Des
perado in the South Onietly Shot to
Death Moral Reform in a Tennessee
Town Criminal Notes.
Albany, July 18. Warden Thayer, of
Clinto prison at Dannemora, came to Al
bany and related to Governor Flower a
brutal scheme of a number of long term
prisoners to gain their freedom, which in
cluded the cold-blooded murder of several
of the prison guards. One of the prisoners
who was asked to enter into the murder
on s attempt to escape, refused, and he ad
vised the prison authorities of the plot.
The governor, when ho heard the facts,
immediately pardoned the prisoner who
divulged the plot. The story is as follows:
As the prisoners filed through the prison
corridor at noon, in lockstep on their way
past Keeper McKenna to obtain their
dinner rations, one of them slipped into
the hand of the keeper a piece of brown
wrapping paper, two feet long by a foot
wide, which was written upon both sides
in lead pencil.
ISricf Acronnt of the Plot.
The keeper was astonished to find thereon
the details of a plan by which a number of
prisoners hoped to escape. The writer,
after relating that he would not join the
schemers because of the brutality of the
plot, said the attempt was to lie made after
midnight Sunday night. Two convicts
named Rea and Wright had their doors
cut to establish egress into the corridors,
and were armed with a knife and a heavy
iron bar. With these they were to sally
forth when the guard made hfs round, kill
him, and take his revolver. They were
then to go to the o.Tice and kill the other
guard. All the prisoners in the scheme
were subsequently to lie released.
The Statement Fully Corroborated.
Keeper M.Kenna immediately notified
Warden Thayer of the plot and a search
of the cells revealed everything to be just
as stated in the letter. Other cells were
searched anC positive evidence of the com
plicity of the other convicts was found.
Both Governor Flower and Warden Thav
er refused to divulge, for the present at
least, the name of the prisoner who proba
bly had saved the lives of several prison
guards. They thought it might bring
trouble upon him from the prisoners
whom he gave away or some of their friends
outside of the prison.
Happy Surprise for the Informer.
The Warden did not go near the prisoner
after receivi.ig his communication and
said that the latter probably docs not yet
know the result of his warning. The
fortunate man was received at the prison
Aug. iHK, and had four years to serve
for grand larceny. The crime was com
mitted in New York city, where the pri
soner has a wife and children. Warden
Thayer has gone to Duinemora with the
pardon in hU poAet.

refused and he threatened to burn
her house. Last Wednesday night her
house was burned to the ground and she
ai d her children narrowly escaped death.

threatened to kill one or two people, and
to burn the houses of several others who

without' avail. Sunday night the sheriff
was at the house which Meetze had threat
ened to burn. He heard shots, and going
to the barn of Mrs. Meetse found Meetze
