That Vincent Vllman came to his death about 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon on the Pennsylvania railroad crossing at New Jersey avenue and I street southeast and that his death was due to an accident was the verdict of a Jury of six men who heard the testimony of witnesses given today at the sixth precinct station. Mr. Vllman was fifty-seven year old, was an upholsterer by trade and lived at !?17 I street southeast. Yesterday afternoon he was out walking with his brother. Joseph Vllman. and when the I street crossing was reached tire gates were down. An engine was moving west on the tracks and when this had passed Mr. Vllman stooped and passed under the gate. He had evidently not noticed the moving eastbound passenger train. Several persons who were standing about the crossing called to him to warn him of his danger, but he paid no heed to them. The engine struck him and threw him from the track. Mr. Vllman was killed instantly and his body was removed to the morgue. Joseph Vllman, brother of the deceased, was the first witness examined at the In quest. "My brother was on one side of the gate and X was on the other," he informed the jury. "The train knocked him down and killed him." Witness said he heard nobody speak to his brother, warning him to keep off the tracks. They had dined together and had started to go to Calbin John bridge. His brother, he stated, went under the gate and he thought he had reached the opposite side of th? crossing in safety. Dead When He Reached Hospital. Dr. Owens of Providence Hospital told the jury that Mr. Vllman was dead when he reached the hospital. George Handy, yardmaster's assistant at the New Jersey avenue yard, testified that he was about twenty-five feet from Mr. Vll man when the train struck him. Witness saiil that Mr. Vllman stopped when he got on the tracks, and motioned to his brother to follow him. and was struck by the engine of the outgoing train. There are two gate men and a flagman on duty at the 1 street crossing, the witness stated. The gatemen do duty at the gates, while the flagman spends most of his time about the main tra-cks. These gates, the witness said, are kept down, except when vehicles are cross ing. During the fourteen years witness has been employed there, he said, only two fatal accidents have occurred on the crossing. The case prior to this was that of a colored boy, who was pursued by a policeman, and ran against a train and was killed. The crossing where the accident occurred, he said, is one of the busiest parts of the road. About fifty-two regular trains pass over this crossing between 6 a.m. and i Pl each day. Witness heard nobody warn the pedestrian of his danger. Story of the Engineers. James Carter, engineer, informed the jury that his engine was north of the cross ing when the accident occurred. He said that two men started over the crossing to gether. One of them stopped and the en gine of the passenger train struck him. The body of the victim was thrown under the tender of the engine, which was in charge of witness. Witness said he called to the pedestrian, as did the man who was with him but he paid no attention to them. James H. Downs, engineer, was in charge of the engine drawing the passenger train. Witness blew the alarm whistle when he saw the man, but the latter did not get out cf the way. His flreman was ringing the bell at the time the train reached the cross ing. The victim walked backward from behind an engine to the track on which his train was running, and witness could not pcssib'.v have prevented the accident. Henry P. Rizon, flagman on the crossing, testified that he witnessed the accident. He was on duty, and had escorted a little girl over the crossing. When he turned he saw Mr Vllman walk in front of the train. Witness called to Mr. Vllman. hut he thought the latter did not hear him. He heard the engineer warn the pedestrian in a tone loud enough for the man In dan ger to hear. James Davis, gateman at the south side of the crossing also gave testimony. The gates had been lowered before Mr. Vll man reached the crossing, he said. Wit ness saw him about the time he stepped in front of the engine. The gates, the witness stated, are never raised for pedes trains. It is the practice of the flagman to escort pedestrians over the crossing. Deputy Coroner's Statement. Deputy Coroner Glazebrook testified that he examined the body and explained the bruises found about the chest and left arm. Several ribs had been fractured and one of them had torn the heart. Death resulted from hemorrhage. James Cathell, representing the railroad, informed the jury that the crossing on which the accident occurred Is as wide as Pennsylvania avenue. The gates are kept down by order of the Commissioners. Mr. Vllman's body was removed from the morgue yesterday afternoon to Mitch ell's undertaking establishment, where It was prepared for burial. Today the body was taken to the late home of the deceased. Funeral services over the remains will be conducted at St. Peter's Church, Wednes day morning. The interment will be at Mount Olivet cemetery. THE ASSISTANT ASSESSORS. Large Delegation of Applicants at th? District Ruilding Today. The prospect of the Commissioners decid ing today upon the appointments to the board of assistant assessors in compliance with the personal tax provision in the row District appropriation bill brought to the District building a large delegation of those peeking the offices. The seekers of the big plums were not the only ones on hand, how ever. as the applicants for clerkships and inspectorships were present In numbers. Commissioner Ross, who has supervision of the tax department and who will make the recommendations for appointments to his associates of the District board, was the center of the office-hunting storm area. Mr. Ross was absent from his office Satur day on account of illness and was prevent ed from conferring with the other Commis sioners about the forthcoming appoint ments. Mr. Ross and the other Commissioners had expected to talk the matter over this morning, but were prevented from doing so, partially on account of the press of visitors and because of the fact that they had no notification of the signing of the District bill by the President. Vntll the bill becomes a law the Commissioners e?annot consider the matter of new appointments officially. Mr. Ross said today the matter might be settled tomorrow or Wednesday, but not before then. Death of Mrs. Amelia Crosby. Mrs. Amelia R. Crosby, wife of Mr. H. T. Crosby, formerly of this city, died Satur day,, June 21, at San Francisco, aged fifty five years. Mrs. Crosby was well known In this city, where she had a host of friends. While living here she was a prominent figure In church musical circles, being pos sessed of a beautiful contralto voice. Her amiable qualities were recognied by a very large number of acquaintances, who will be pained to learn of her sudden death. Mr. Crosby was for ten years chief clerk of the War Department. Their residence in this city extended over a period of over a quarter of a century. Transfer of Insane Indians.
