New Haven, Conn., June 26. A
frightful accident causing the death
of one undergraduate and injuring
more or less seriously two other stu
dents and a guest, cast gloom over the
commencement exercises at Tale uni
versity today. The victim was D. L.
Oliver, son of Mrs. J. B. Oliver of
Pittsburg, Pa., and a senior In Shef
field Scientific school, a member of St.
Anthony's fraternity and one of the
most prominent socially of the upper
classmen. The injured are W. Stroth
ers Jones of Red Bank, N. J., a Shef
field junior and J. C. Colston of Balti
more, a senior in the same depart
ment, and E. Hudson, a commence
ment guest of the others, all of whom
live at St. Anthony's house.
Oliver died from a broken back, be
ing crushed under his automobile af
ter it had jumped off a bridge in Cen
terville, about four miles from the col
lege. The others are suffering from
manifold bruises and Colston had his
nose broken.
The party was coming Into the city
and the machine apparently skidded
off the end of the bridge which spans
a small stream. As the machine took
its flight into the air it turned over
and landed Just at the edge of the wat
er, the crushing weight coming upon

almost instantly killed. . Messrs. Jones.
....... - ' - -' - - . . ".111 . . i. ...... I
Hudson and Colston were carried into
New Haven for treatment.
The automobile was of the racing
type. The roadway on the bridge is
partly occupied by street car tracks.
The supposition is that the automobile
ran on the bridge at a high speed and
that Oliver in trying to keep clear of
the car tracks, swerved and caused
the wheels to skid.
THEY GET TO LAWREXCE.
Heloxman's Pony Brigade Having the
Time of Their Lives,
News came from Lawrence last
night that Harry Heinzman and the
Junior boys who started on the pony
trip yesterday were having the time
of their lives. They reached Law
rence at 3:30 o'clock yesterday after
noon. The ride was fine with the ex
ception of the mud. caused by the
rains of the night before, which ren
dered the traveling rather hard for
the ponies. Thev pitched camp on
the K. I", football fleia last night and
cooked their own supper. This morn
ing they visited'the university and
Haskell and had a general look over
the city of Lawrence. They left for
the southwest over the old Santa Fe
trail this forenoon and will camp at
Carbondale tonight. The boys are
enjoying their trip to the fullest ex
tent and are ready for another one as
soon as they reach home. Heinzman
says that the boys are models of dis
cipline and happiness.
The following boys make up the
party: William Macferran, Lakin
Meade. Major Anderson, Ray Crabb.
Charles Johnson, Lowell Hoatsen, and
Richard Ryder.
Zimmerman e. Star.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., June 26. Henry
Zimmerman, the second baseman of
the Wilkesbarre team of the New
York State league, who has been pur
chased by the Chicago Nationals for
$2,000. will remain here until Septem
ber, and will then report to Chicago.
He Is the star batter and inflelder of
the league. So far this season he has
batted at .320. and leads the basemen
in fielding. He is a natural batsman,
and his one fault that of hitting at
everything near the plate has kept
down his already high average. He Is
overcoming this now.
Only the other day he made two
home runs, a double and three singles
in one game. Another day he landed
four hits in four times up. and they
say he hits as hard and fields as sensa
tionally as Larry Lajoie himself.
At the Air Dome.
"A Matrimonial Muddle" which was
presented at the Air Dome last night
was given a cordial reception. The
audience laughed from beginning to
end. The comnlications of the run
away couples throughout the play
were indeed funny. The Gilmores are
giving satisfaction and are one of the
best repertoire companies that have
been seen in Topeka for many a day.
The same bill will be repeated tonight.
Change of plays will be given on Snn
da Tuesday. Thursday and Saturday
nights of each week.

SEWER OF CONCRETE.
City Engineer Rodgers Would Build
One 011 South Side.
An egg shaped, concrete sewer.
ahe first sewer of this character of
construction in Topeka is planned for
jviartin-jjennis addition by John Rodg
ers, city engineer.
50
50
50
50
50
50
50
50
The combination of an egg shaped
sewer and the use of concerte Instead
of tile is unusual for this part of the
country.
Up until four years ago tile was used
exclusively but the workings of the tile
trust which Is boosting the price of
11 le every tew days is the lever back
50
50
50
50
50
50
50
50
60
60
60
50
50
of the adoption of concrete in prefer
ence to tne.
-concrete will be from 40 to 50 per
cent cneaper than tile," said Mr. Rodg
ers. "I don't know what the latest
quotation of tile is, It advances every
little while. There is no question that
tne manufacturers of tile have got to
gether into a trust. Tile has gone up
like everything within the last two
years and It wouldn't be safe to say
what the price will be in the future."
Some tile will be used in a portion of
60
tne sewer, in the smaller laterals,
50
Wherever the diameter is -18 inches or
50
60
60
60
50
over the concrete will take preference
Of the 35 blocks approximately which
the new sewer will serve, 14 blocks will
have a sewer with a diameter of from
36 to 60 inchest. All of the 14 blocks will
60
60
50
50
50
be of solid concrete.
The main lateral will run down Nine
teenth street from Bolles to Union ave
nues and connect on sewer district No,
27, commonly known as the Fifth ward
sewer, at Topeka avenue at Eighteenth
street. From Nineteenth street and
Union avenue another main lateral for
stormwater will be constructed to con
nect with Shunganunga creek. This
will carry excess sewage from very
heavy rains and divert It into the creek
The lateral on Nineteenth street will
be 36 Inches In diameter and the storm
water lateral will be 5 feet in diame
ter. The district served by the sewer
will extend from Bolles avenue on the
west to Union avenue on the east and
from Twentieth street on the south to
Fifteenth street on the north.
A rough sketch of the sewer has been
made but no effort has been attempt
ed to make plans and specifications in
any detail because no levels have been
run.
As soon as the paving is well under
way, a line of levels will be run over
the district and with these data the
plans will be prepared and an estimate
as to cost arrived at.
Special collapsible steel forms are
manufactured for the construction of
the concrete sewers. The contractors
rent the forms and erect one-half of
sewer at a time. The form Is put into
the excavation and the concrete is built
around it. Only one-half of the sewer
is there first. Then the forms are set
up for the upper half and this is
clamped down into place. The sewer
is then complete.
The sewers that serve Topeka now
are simply the ordinary round tile,
The egg Eihape Is considered to offer
less friction to the flow of sewage than
any other. Presumably it represents
the highest development of shape with
the smallest element of friction.
New York city four years ago let the
first contracts for sewers embodying
the above features). They have given
considerable satisfaction there and no
reason can be offered why they
shouldn't serve all demands In To-
neka.
When the new sewer has been built
and with the water mains already now
n place, the southwest part of the city
that was two years ago without either,
will have a better improvement than
many portions of the heart of the city.
