THE WILLIAMS NEWS A Cloe Call. Last Saturday evening, just at 6 o'clock, as the workmen on the Santa Fe Pacific's large reservoir south of town were preparing to make everything snug for the night, a terrible accident occurred by which one man nearly lost his life. The great dam is now almost completed and in the center of the canyon has a height of seventy feet. Derricks were in use handling the enormous blocks of stone and at the time mentioned, Tom George, one of the workmen, was walking along the crest of the dam holding in his hands the guide rope used to swing the huge blocks into posi tion. When at the highest point he gave a tug on the rope which parted. On the upper side of the dam there is a sheer fall of thirty feet to the water below. On the lower side the wall is terraced, forming huge stair steps. It was on this side that the unfortunate George felL When the rope parted he was precipitated into space, falling backward for a distance of twelve feet before striking the terrace be low, from which he bounded from one to the other till the bottom was reached. Those who saw the accident stood with bated breath and only expected when they reached the unfortunate man to find him dead. He was hastily conveyed to the hospital where Dr. Melick made an examination disclosing the fact that aside from an ugly cut on the head and numerous bruises, no great damage was done. How the man escaped with his life was a miracle, and that he could have fallen a dis tance of seventy feet without a bone being broken seems almost impossible to believe. At this writing Mr. George is able to be around town, though it will be some days before he will re turn to work. This is the third accident of the kind to happen almost in the same place. During the construction of the original dam in 1894 a workman fell from the wall, striking his head on a rock, rendering him uncon scious. He was removed to Ash Fork, where the hospital was then located and where he died. About the same time, Ruth, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs Wm. Hayward, while playing about the dam, lost her balance and fell down the terraced wall, receiving injuries to one of her shoulders from which she has not yet re covered.
