The accident happened about 4:20
o'clock In front of .Inmes .1. Hill's coun
try home, North Oaks.
The disaster was the result, of nn at
tempt on the part of Mr. .Inmes to drive
ahead of another car, occupied by twoj
men and their wives. Mr. James had
signalled with his horn that be would!
pass their car nnd the second nuto
turned to the right to allow the .lames
car leeway.
The spot whie the accident occurred
! tilled with sand. The fiont wheels of
the James machine failed to climb out
"ther machine toppled a second on
two wheels and then slowly turned over.
Apparently held to their seats by
fright, none of the James party at
tempted to Jump. The nutomoblle top
fortunately raised the tonncnu a little
off the ground, which probably saved
the lives of the women.
Fmployees from the Hill estate went
to thn rescue
ind by the combined ef
forts of eight or ten man the ear was
lifted off the bodies of the two men.
Mr. and Mrs. Hill brought Mis Mann
and Miss James to their home In this
city. Mrs. l'letchner was In u critical
condition to-night.
The tragedy recalls the tragic death
of Mrs. James nearly four years ago In
Athens, (Jreece. With her husband nnd
a party of friends she was stricken with
a serious uisese in i-;gypt anu uicu in. I
less than a week. "rffh the expiration
of live eais Mr. James hud planned to
lulng the body here, the deck law for
bidding removal before that lime.
Mr. James was u nephew uf the late
Marshall Field of Chicago and had been
I with the Gieat Northern Hallway for
twenty years or more, a part of the time
(having been at liulTalo.
Howard James was horn on AuRiit
,SG-- uns educated at Wllllston
Seminary antl at Williams College,
graduating from the latter school In
18S2. On leaving college he 1
came u
clerk In the freight department of the
St. Paul .Minneapolis antl Manitoba
Hnllroad. Four years later he was made
secretary to the general manager of
the same railroad.
in 18S8 he became treasurer nntl pur
chasing agent of the Hastern Hnllroad
of Minnesota, anil a year later went
back to the St. Paul, Minneapolis and
Manitoba Hnllroad to become superin
tendent of the northern division. In
1892 he became superintendent of the
Minneapolis Union Kallroad, nnd three
years later became purchasing ngent of
the Northern Steamship Company.
Four years later he got the same posi
tion with the Great Northern Railroad,
and In 1905 ho became director of pur
chases of the Great Northern, vice
president nnd general manager of the
Great Northern Steamship Company

A M ity II.I.K, K. I Nov. 21. The An
nex and n cottnge of the llruuswlrk
Home for the Insane In this village were
burned tn tile glxuud to-day nntl 4
patient, Fritz Mnndnry. who In terror
of the flames crawled underneath a
porch, was burned to denth.
Tlie lire was caused by a spark from
tlie engine house smokestack, a few
yards In the renr of the Annex, which
lodged In the cupola of tho large build
ing. Fanned by a stiff oast wind, It
soon started a blaze Tlie lire was dis
covered before long antl could probably
have been confined to the roof of the'
building If the water pressure had been
sufficient to throw a stream higher
than two stories.
The firemen weie helpless. Theie was
enough steam In tlie waterworks
holler to blow the tire alarm whistle.
The home Is half a mile north of
Amltyvllli! on ltroadway antl houses
about three hundred patients, none oi
them violent. The main building Is on
the roatl and between It and the Annex
are a dozen small cottages. Most of the
patients for the care of whom the In
stitution Is paid nre In the main build
ing. The Annex contained about fifty
charity patients, men and children.
.War by and In a line with the sparks
are London Hall nnd the Kong Island
Home, a State institution, which to
gether hold about a thousand harm
lessly Insane pntlents.
William Couley, the watchman, saw
the little spurt of ilame on the cupola
and telephoned for the two hose com
panies and the hook and ladder, which
make up the Amityvilie fire department.
The blaze had made a little tower of
flame of the cupola when the llrcmen
arrived, and they realized that they were
In fur a tough light. Additional appara
tus was called from Lyntleiihurst and
Fnrmlngdale, each about three, miles
The women nurses who had charge
of tho children on the first floor of the
building grubbed some of their little
charges by the hands when the alarm
was given nd shooing the rest before
them made their wny safely outside.
.Mole dllllculty was experienced with
the men upstairs, who no sooner
leached the open than they broke awuy
anil dashed hack Into the building.
Again and again attendants went Inside
after them and by sheer force dragged
them from the building. Two men bed
ridden for yoa'tf were carried out on
l'nder the d.rettlon of Supt. C. L.
Markham and the visiting physician,
Dr. Charles A. Luce, all were distributed
through the cottages which seemed safe
from the lire and locked up. All except
Mandary. who unnoticed In the smoke
which veiled the front of the annex,
crawled under a porch and was killed.
The firemen, after telephou g to the
Amityvilie water works for nunc pres
sure, gav up all attempt to save the
annex and turned their slender strenms
on the rows of cottages to keep them
from catching. The cottage next to the
annex was soon afire.
This cottage contained twenty-live
women and children, who huddled to
gether In fright and were led from the
building like sheep. Both the cottage
and the annex were In a few moments
a solid mass of fire on which even a
downpour uf hall and rain from a thun
der shower made no Impression,
Showers of sparks blown by the wind
were wafted toward Loudon Hall and
the Long Island Home, Just back of It.
They drifted In windows and set lire
to beds, and kindled the roofs In a
dozen places. Men with buckets put out
most of these small fires and the rain
doused the rest.
Jn the excitement of herding the
patients together and away from tlie
burning buildings a number of them
slipped away, but were soon caught ami
brought back. One of these, a man
named Seeley, at one time was ono or
P. T. Uarnum's side shows, cnlled the
"What Is It?" Seeley has most of tho
facial and physical characteristics of
the monkey. He has been In tho place
fifteen yeais.
Another man slipped away and got
into a small corncrlb In hack of the
annex. He was not noticed until the
crib caught flro antl a stream was
turned on It. A dog Inside began to
bark loudly and some of the attendants
found tho Insant! man Inside Jumping
up and down with glee with tho dog
clasped In his nrms.
In a short time both the annex anil
tho cottage had burned to a heap of
smouldering timbers. Dr. Markham
estimated the damage at about $7,500,
Mandary, the man who was burned
to death, had been In tho homo about
sixteen years. He was taken there
from St. Catherine's Hospital In Brook

Board of Arbitration Settles
Disputes on Fifty-two
Decision Only Binds Until
May, 19J3, and Trouble
Threatens Then.
Grant Means Additional Ex
penditure of 7,172,000
a Year.
Woulil End All Controversies
Without Strikes to Cripple
Washinoto.v, Nov. 24. The 30,000
locomotive engineers of the Eastern
railroads have won their fight for sn
Increase In wages. The Board of Arbi
tration between the railroads and the
engineers in Its award mado public to
day does not grant all of the engineers'
demands, but establishes minimum
wages which amount to a substantial
Increase on most of tho roads.
Notwithstanding the lncreao In com
pensation, the representative of the
engineers on the board dissents from
the award and eay.s the settlement ac
cepted by It can be only temporary.
The award Is retroactive, running for
only ono year from May 1, 1912. This
means that within flvo months thn rail
roads of the l-'ost probably will bo con
fronted by further demands from tho
engineers and again may have to meet
the possibility of a strike.
The award by the Hoard of Arbitration
probably brings the fifty-two rntlroadj
of the Kast alo face to face with de
mands for Increased wages by tho fire
men and other employees.
The railroads estimated that tho de,vN
mantis on the part of the englncci'3 It
granted would entail an additional ex
penditure of $7,172,000 n year. If thn
same percentage of Increase worn
granted to other employees the ad
ditional expense woulil amount In all to
The Hoard of Arbitration expresses the
opinion that this total Is too high, but
It does not attempt to give exact figures
ns to the additional burden that the
award may Impose upon the railroads
of thn Kast.
The findings of the arbitration board
nre regarded here as practically Insur
ing a renewed attempt on tho part ot
the railroads to raise freight rates.
Question, of Kiprnnr.
The chief contention of the railroads
In opposing the engineers' demands wa"l
that they were unable financially to
meet the Increased compensation asked.
The Hoard of Arbitration waves this
question aside und holds that If tha
railroads ore not nble to pay a fair com
pensation to their engineers with exist
ing rates there Is Just cause for them
to open again the question of an In
crease In rates with the Interstate Com
merce Commission.
Jt Is on the strength of this suggestion
that tho railroads undoubtedly will
Illicitly move to lay before the Inter
state Commerce Commission again
schedules of Increased rates. The arbi
trators express a rough opinion how
ever, that a great majority of tho roads
In tho Kastern district probably are
able to pay a fair compensation.
Hut more striking than the actual "
nwnrd by the hoard Is a recommenda
tion which It makes for the solution nt
all labor disputes on railroads of the
United States. This recommendation
contemplates the establishment by law
of State and Federal wage commissions.
The Federal wage commission as out
lined by the arbitrators would be a body
similar to the Interstate Commerce
Commission and all labor disputes nn
Interstate railroads would be referred tn
It for settlement, l'nder this proposed
plan arbitration of all railroads' labor
disputes would be, compulsory.
Labor How In View,
P. II. Morrlssey, the representative of
the organized engineers on the Hoard of
Arbitration, expresses bitter opposition
to this compulsory arbitration plan, and
the Indications nre that It will raise a
mighty protest from tho labor world.
The engineers find fault also with other
features of tho award, particularly the
failure of the board to uphold their de
mands for a standardization of wages
and for different pay for different
classes of engines. Mr. Morrlssey Is
the only member of the Board of Arbi
tration who does not algn tho Award.
The railroads also am disappointed
with somo features of tho report, but
Daniel Wlllard, president of the Balti
more and Ohio, who represented the car
riers on tho board, afllxed his tdgnaturo
to the findings. ,
The announcing of this award marks
the end of the most Important American
labor dispute that has been submitted
to arbitration since the anthracite coal
strike In 1902. Through this arbitration
was avoided a strike which threatened
to tin up all of the railroads cast of Chi
cago and north of thn Norfolk and
Western line and which would havo
brought untold suffering and money
loss to" the American people.
The trouble between Hie. railroads and
the engineers began last January, when
the brotherhood presented to tho car
riers a series of requests involving uni
form rates of pay, uniform classifica
tions ot Bervlco and uniform working
rules throughout the Eastern district.
The railroads refused to front the t
