Coroner's Verdict Concerning the Death
of Philip Thomas.
Coroner Nevitt yesterday held an inquest
at the sixth precinct police station over the
bedy of Philip Thomas, colored, twenty-one
years old. who died at Freedman's Hos
pital Monday night as the result of Injuries
received at the filtration plant about 10
o'clock Sunday night. Thomas, who was
employed as a laborer, was riding on a dirt
car at the plant when he fell off and was
run over, having one arm badly crushed
besides receiving internal Injuries. It was
explained to the Jury that the car on which
the dead man was riding had been cut
loose from a locomotive, but instead of
going through a switch it bumped into the
engine again, causing Thomas to lose his
balance and fall. William Quarles, colored,
who was in charge of the switch, was ar
rested. but the Jury decided that he was in
nowise responsible for the man's death and
returned a verdict to the effect that death
was the result of an accident.
Response to ? Complaint.
John F. Crowell of 1333 F street north
west recently called to the attention of the
Commissioners th? Obstruction of the side
walk at the northeast corner of 14th and G
streets northwest. He complained that the
conditions constftuted: a disregard of pub
lic convenience. In a report upon the mat
ter the engineer j6f highways, C. B. Hunt,
"During the construction of a cement
sidewalk around the Colorado building,
which was done tiridqr a permit from this
office at the whole cost of the property, the
sidewalk space was necessarily cut off from
public use for three yr four days, and this
happens under similar conditions in connec
tion w.th District sidewalk work as a regu
lar experience. It would, of course, be prac
ticable to require in the case of our own
work that bridges should be maintained
lengthwise of the walk during portions of
the time that the walk is barricaded, but
this would add considerably to the cost of
the work and has not in the past been con
sidered as being at all Justified by the ad
vantages that would be gained, nor has It
been considered equitable to exact, In such
cases as the present, provisloins that are
not contained in our specifications. This
office regards a temporary barricade of the
sidewalk space during the construction of
a cement walk as a practical and necessary
procedure, and the inconvenience to the
public which results therefrom is justified."
The complainant will be Informed in ac
cordance with this statement.
It pays to read the want columns 9f The
Star. Hundreds of situations are filled
through them.
