VERDICT OF CORONER S JURY IN
CASE OF VINCENT ULLHAN.
Victim Was Struck by Engine of Pas
senger Train on Pennsylvania
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
"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
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
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
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
