r nd ns she was grabbed by her rescuer she bo
cme unconscious.
It was about 7 o'clock when tbo four young
pcoplo went on tho tea to skate. Tbey wero
warned of the danger by William Blako, who la

Ho told them that tho Ico was thin and that It
would hardly hold their weight. They mado no
reply, but went boldly out on tho creek.
Tho Ico cracked beneath their feet, but tboy
glided on with apparent disregard ot danger.
After passing up and down tho creek In the
vicinity of tho Eastern Lumber Company's
yards several times tho party stoppod opposite
Dear's Icehouse, which Is on tho creek road.
Then there was a load crackling, followed by ,
crash nnd a cry ot terror that was heard for a
auarlcr ot amlto. and tho four skaters wero
plunged Into the icy waters. The strugglo of
tho three that were drowned was short, as they
soon wore drawn beneath tho Ico by Iho current
and boforo help arrived they were dead. Miss

tho edgo of tho Ice, and her repeated screams
brought a-slsliince.

nnd ran to his home and told his parents. The
fat her rusbod to tho creek with a polo and tried
to get tbo strmrgllng girl to grasp It. Hho wns
already too far gono to help horsclf and
Schwnrtz ran to one of tho neighbors for assist
ance. Adolph Kllngor, a sturdy German, living
about 100 yards from tho scone, brought a long
ladder to tho spot, and throwing it across tho
holo In tho lee, ho ran out on this support to tho
almost unconscious girl. Picking her up in his
arms, ho backed safoly to tho bank ot the creek
boforo tbo Ico could glvo way undor its heavy
burdon. The girl was carried to tho homo of
one of the neighbors, wboro sho was revived.
Within u half hour uf tor tbo calamity had oc
cur rod tho banks of the creek woro lined with
people, who wero Ashing for tbo bodies of tbe
threo jhertons that woro beneath tbo Ico. Cor

to the Philadelphia and Reading Railway tracks,
when tbo brakes refused to act, and despite the
largo quantity of sand poured on the slippery
rails, tho car shot down the Incline, gathoring
momentum with every foot.
Motorman Van Fassen worked at the brakes
and sand box and Conductor Justice Layroond
ran to bis assistance, but their combined efforts
failed to check tho flying car.
Just below SUverwood streot another car
stood waiting to transfer such of tho passengors
on tho approaching car as desired for tbe Penn
sylvania station. George Yarnall, the motorman
saw tho runaway car. but too lato even to re

front of tho "dinky" and partly against a lamp
post nnd tiro nlug standing at tbo curb,
Motorman Yarnall was thrown from his car
and escaped with a few bruises, but the crew of
the runaway were not so fortunate. Conductor
Laymond was the chief victim. His right arm
and leg wero crushed and torn.
Motorman Van Fassen was also terribly cut
on the head nnd nrms. Of tbe passengors on the
runaway car none escopod Injury. Tho wreck

Mr. Harburgor is anxious to tako chargo of tho

Assemblyman Harburger's bill advocates tho
abolition of the Haines law and the restoration
of tho old Exclso Board, with discretionary pow

to reduce tho price of licenses nnd advocates a
return to the rormor grados. He will advocate

nath Sldre Claim Victory, but netting Favors
Qnlney.
Boston, Mass., Dec. 20. Tho municipal cam
paign In Boston closed to-day. Tho shrewdest
political observers predict tho re-election of
Mayor Joslnh Qulncy by a plurality ranging
from 2.000 to 4,000. Two weeks ago tho out
look favored former Mayor Edwin U. Curtis,
the Republican candidate, but at the termina
tion ot tho canvass the situation Is rovcrsed.
Tho hotting Is all on Qulncy. Odds of 10 to 7
were offered whero tho talent congtegAto, and
It Is said that in some cases 2 to 1 was offored
and acceptod. At tho Parker Houso n bet of
91.000 to $700 was place. I, but the Stock Ex
change was tho best placo for bets to-day. Ono
prominent broker Is snld to havo registered a
bot of $1,000 to 5700 In favor of Qulncy, and an
other offered 8100 to $50 nnd was promptly
taken up. Most of tbe bets, however, were In
small suras, and these were very numerous.
The Republicans will surely elect seven ot the
twclvo Aldermen, but tho Democrats will re
tain control of tbe Common Council. Tho city
will vote " Y'ee," as usual, on tbe license ques
tion. Candidate Tom Rlloy succeeded In mak
ing n very lively scone at Pollco Head
quarters to-night. Accompanied by one
of his lloutcnants ho entered tho room
occupied by Deputy Superintendent Coultor,
nnd in a loud voice declared that ho had ro

" I have not withdrawn, ho almost shouted,
"nnd I demand thnt the police of Boston arrest
any man found with such nplacard In his hand."
Aftor denouncing tbo methods employed by
tho Qulncy men to dofoat him, and without re

Two employees of the Now York Termi
nal Warehouse gavo a mixed ale party in tho
engine room ot tho warehouse on Elevonth ave
nue, near Twenty-eighth street, last Thursday
night. They wero Philip King, tho engineer,
and Patrick McAllister, the fireman. In order
that tho party might batanco properly they In
vited only two guests. Miss KUtaboth L. Reed
of 217 West Twenty-ninth street, and Miss
Sadie Lamont of 345 West Twenty-ninth street.
No chaperon was Invited or thought noceseary.
What happened nt tho mixed ale party Is no. a
matter of record, and It is doubtful if It's a
matter of memory, as there was a great doal of
the Elevonth avenuo favorito beverago.drunk
that night.
About daylight Policeman Conklln ot tho
West Thirty-seventh street station found an
unconscious woman on tho stdowalk of Elev
enth avenuo outsldo tho warehouse. Sho was
bleeding profuBoly from tho head. An nmbu
lanco was called, and tho woman was taken to
Bellovue Hospital, whoro It was found that both
her knees wero broken nnd that her scalp had
boon badly lacerated. Thcro was also ovldonco
that sho hod boen drinking heavily. Soon aftor
roachlng tho hospital sho bocamo conscious
and sold that she was Hadlo Lamont. Her talk
was very contusod, but sho said something
about having been to a chrlstonlncr nnd having
drunk a groat deal of liquor. Then sho said
somotMng about having been In the warohouso
onglnc room. Efforts to got any sort of con
secutlvo account of how sho hod been injured
were unavailing.
. "I foil In tho dark." sho said once, "nnd I
know I was hurt bad."
Soon sbo relapsed into unoonsclousncss, nnd
slio died within threo hours after hor admlttanco
to tho hospital. Tho doctors found no marks
that would lndlcato foul play, but said that tho
injuries wero such as could not havo resulted
from a fall unloss from a window or down stairs.
Pollco Captain Brown started upon an lnvcstt-
?ntion. Ho concludod that tho woman hnd
nllon or been pushed from a second-story win
dow of tho warohouso almost dlroctly above
where sho was found unconscious. King, Mc
Allister, nnd tho ltocd woman worn arrested.
After some questioning tho men admitted that
tho two women had spent tho night In tbo on-
glno room, but denied any knowlodgo as to how
adle Lamont camo to her death.
"Wo had all been drinking," snld King, "and
she must havo wandered upstairs and opened
ono of tho Iron shutters. Then, llkoly for air,
she leaned out and fell."
Tho three prisoners wore arraigned In York
vlllo Court yesterday morning nnd sent to tho
Houso ot Detention as witnossos. Coroner
Dobbs went with Cnpt. Brown to tho ware
house and mado an examination of the prem
ises. Neither nf them considers that the pris
oners are responsible for Sadio Lamont' b death,
but they will be held until tbo pollco havo hoc

Ban Francisco, Cat, Dec. 20. Judgo Son
well to-day hold that tho Crocker Woolworth
Bank wns entitled to recover $22,000 from tho
Nevada Bank which it paid two years ago upon
a draft forged by a gang of notorious Eastern
crooks. Carl Beckor and James Crccgan, who
committed tho forgery, havo been sent to Stato
prison for life. Tho original draft was for $12
from tho bank of Woodland on tho Crocker
Woolworth Bank, but tho forgers raised It to
$22,000, and ono ot them deposited It in tho
Nevada Bank. When tho draft was sent
through tho Clearing House tho Crockor Bank
finid it, and the forgers drew $ 20,000 on account
rom tho Nevada Bank. It was holiday time;
and ten days elapsed before tho forgery was
discovered.
Tho Nevada Bank refused to pay moro than
tbe $2,000 balance which they bad on hand, so
suit was brought, Tho Judgo holds that tbe Ne
vada. Bank was guilty of carelessness In not
investigating tho status of tho forger who do
posited the druft, and that tho Crocker Wool
worth Bank paid In good faith a cheek that
had been Bent from u fellow member of tho
Clearing Houso.

tho Commissioners for tho United Statos and

Bebrlng Sea claims, bavo completed their work
for the presont, and, it Is understood, will soon

Tho Bohrlng Soa claims, which It was proposed
to settle for 420,000 by President Cleveland,
now aggrcgato more than $800,000, with Inter
est for ton years. That the amount of indemnity
paid by tbo United States to Great Britain will
be much larger than was expectod at first is ap
parent from the ovldcnco already submitted.
Somoot tho claims will be disallowed, but tho
total is likely to bo nearly If not quite a million

by tbe Commissioners. It Is not possible
to tell nt this time what claims have
been ruled out or whothcr or not It will
bo necossary to refer any of the claims
to the arbitration ot a third Commissioner, who
is to bo appointed by tho President ot Switzer

Bary, but It may bo said In a general way that
the conferences of tho two Commissioners have
been or tho most satisfactory character.
The Commissioners have gono over the dls-
Suted claims step by stop, reviewing theevl
encc ob In the case of a law court. It Is under
stood that an agreement as to tho amount of
Indemnity claimed has been reported In all but
a fow cases, and those are llkoly to be settled
without the nppolntmentof an umpire. An In
formal conference of tho Commissioners may be
nocessary before the reports to tbe two Govern
ments aro made, but It is expectod that a satis
factory adjustment of all the claims will bo re
ported. The amount awarded to Great Britain
will bo paid within six months of the time when
the final doclsion is reported, whether It is made
by the two Commissioners or by an umpire.
