INJURIES WERE FATAL
DEATH OF FRANK V. HARDING
OF WOODSIDE, MD.
Was Station Agent and Had Gone to
Platform to Receive Mail
Struck by Engine.
Frank V. Harding, station agent of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad at Woodside,
Md.t was struck by the engine of the Gaith
ersburg local about 1:15 o'clock yesterday
afternoon at Woodside, and died later from
shock. The only witnesses to the acci
dent were the engineer and baggagemaster
of the train which struck him.
The train Is known as No. fll, and left
Washington at 12:50 o'clock. It is due at
Woodside at 1:11 o'clock. The engineer of
the train was Benjamin L. Vermillion
and Richard C. Moore, the conductor.
Mr. Harding was in the custom of
meeting the train daily to receive the noon
mail from Washington. The train usually
slows down in order to permit of the mall
-bag being thrown from the baggage car.
As it happened yesterday there was no
mail for Woodside. and as a result the
train did not stop hut continued under full
speed. Thinking the train was going to
stop, Mr. Harding walked up the platform,
anu being too near the edge, the pilot of the
engine struck him in the back, throwing
him suddenly headforemost into a clay
bank. His right foot caught In the plat
form, breaking his ankle.
The engineer brought ills train to a stand
still about 250 yards from where the acci
dent happened, and returned to wnere Mr.
Harding had fallen and the injured man
was placed aboard and the train proceeded
at full speed for Kensington. Md . where
Dr. Eugene Jones, surgeon of the Balti
more and Ohio railroad, was summoned to
attend him.
Conversed With Surgeon.
Mr. Harding was conscious upon his ar
rival at Kensington, and after being given
stimulants he% told Dr. Jones the story of
the accident as related above, giving liis
full name and his age as tifty-slx.
"Old man, you made a lucky escape, said
Dr. Jones.
did that." he replied, in his customary
tone. ,
After his ankle had been bandaged with
splints he was placed aboard a southbound
train for Washington. Following a couple
of sinking spells he rallied, but at "J: 15 lie
sank into unconsciousness and at2:30o clock
died aboard the train between Linden and
Woodside. The train was stopped and his
body taken to the homo of his mother, Mrs.
Mary Harding.
In addition to a broken ankle he received
several slight bruises on his body and
small contusions on the back of his head
and hand. In the opinion of Health Officer
William L. I.ewis. who was present at the
coroner's inquest, death resulted from
shock. Mr. Harding had previously suffered
two strokes of paralysis.
The coroner, Mr. E. C. Keys, summoned a
jury, and after viewing the body and col
lecting such information as could be ob
tained the jury expressed tlie belief that
death was due to unavoidable accident.
Dr. Jones' account of the accident and
expert testimony by Health Officer Lewis,
were heard by the jury. The inquest will
be continued this afternoon, when the en
gineer and baggagemaster of tlie train will
testify.
The Jury was composed of Mr. F. R.
Keys, foreman, and Messrs. T. G. Faulkner,
E. W. Birgfeld, G. D. Holmes, A. C. Stubbs,
J. H. Sawyer, J. W. Anderson. E. W. Cls
sell, W. C. Wilson. M. A. Armstead, E. B.
Olds and J. E. Bradford.
Native of Woodside.
Mr. Harding was the son of Sirs. Hard
ing and the late Dr. Jusiah Harding of
Montgomery county, and a brother of Miss
Henrietta Harding of Woodside, Mil., and
Mrs. \V. W. Riley of Washington. He was
born at Woodside and was well-known
throughout the surrounding country, where
he was quite popular. He was an active
member of Grace Episcopal Church. About
ho weeks ago he was appointed to the
position which he held at the time of his
death. He was struck by a train about
four years ago in the vicinity of Woodside
and thrown down an embankment, being
badly lacerated, but no bones were broken.
Again last winter, it was said, he was in
tin- way of a train and would have been
struck had not the engineer lessened the
speed of his train. He was known by all
the employes of the Metropolitan branch.
Funeral services will be held at Grace
Episcopal Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30
o'clock. Rev. Thomas G. Faulkner, pastor
of the church, will officiate. The inter
ment will bo in Rock Creek cemetery.

WAGGAMAN INDICTMENTS.
Second Time Bill Said to Be Substitute
for First.
The charges contained in the Indictment
reported by the grand Jury yesterday against
Thomas E. Waggaman do not differ sub
stantially from those set forth in the orig
inal Indictment, which the Jury returned
against Mr. Waggaman last August. In
both true bills Mr. Waggaman is Accused
of the embezzlement of the sum of $5,2;*),
belonging to the estate of Adele B French.
It is alleged that as trustee for the estate
he appropriated the money to his own use.
The second indictment, containing six
counts, whereas the tirst contained only
one, is of the nature of a substitute for the
llrst. Both are pending, the court as yet
having made no disposition of the one re
turned last August.

FROM ST.A TO CENTER.
Lecture on Africa by Mr. H. L. Bridg
man.
Mr. H. L. Bridgman. manager of the
Brooklyn Standard-Union, lectured before
the National Geographic Society at the
National Rifles' Armory last night on "Af
rica from Sea to Center." The lecture -was
illustrated. Nearly all of the views shown
were colored lantern slides, and many were
Mr. Bridgman's own work. But the title
was something of a deception. Somehow .
"Africa from Sea to Center" rather sug
gests a trip up the Congo or a march inland |
from the Victoria falls. But the talk last
night was largely on Egypt, the Nile and
the British occupation. Mr. Brldgman was
a little late, but as he talked at an average
rate of 250 words a minute, he managed to
compress about 30,(MX> words of lecture into
the space alloted to him.
The politics and the policy of the British
in managing the great domain of the kne
dive was one of the points strongly brought
out. Mr Bridgman expressed a great ad
miration for Kitchener, Gen. Reginald \\ m
gate and "Chinese" Gordon, of all of whom
he had pictures. He spoke particularly of
Gordon as a great soldier, a great adminis
trator and a man of marvelous force and
gentle greatness. He said that in the esti
mation of the English who know Egypt
Gordon occupies much the same place as
do Washington and Lincoln in the hearts
of Americans. _ , .,
The mangement of the Egyptian problem
presents, he said, much the sa!"? "
ties that we are now dealing with in the
Philippines. But Lord Cromer, he thought
was the man for the place, and when it
came down to the final decision there was
never any question as to who
aging editor of the country, Lord Cromer
or the khedive.
The pictures were really a great ser'??;
taking the traveler from Alexandria and
Cairo up the Nile, past the ruined temple
of Isis. past the Assouan dam and tne

a clear case against Harry, alias Charles

charge of taking the life of Morris J. Hol

plained in The Star yesterday. The con
fessions of the two men that the fruit of
the murder was only a pair of second-hand
shoes, which they took from the feet of

termed in detective parlance "a hungry

JAMES F. EARLEY DEAD
SCULPTOR AND MODELER OF THE
ENGLISH SCHOOL.
Designed Improvements to a Number
of Local Churches?His Ex
perience Abroad.
Mr. James F. Earley, prominent as a
sculptor and modeler in this city, died last
night at 8 o'clock, following- a comparative
ly short illness, aged forty-eight years. His
death was due to typhoid fever. Mr.
Earley was widely known and respected
in the business and artistic circles of Wash
ington. A most affable and approach
able man in business, of sterling integrity,
Mr Earley made many warm and fast
friends.
Mr. Earley's skill in art is exemplified In
his architectural embellishments of the
public and private buildings and residences
of Washington. He attained fame as a
sculptor and modeler, and had been identi
fied with a large part of the architectural
improvement that has taken place in this
city during the past fifteen years. Prior
to permanently locating here he labored
for short periods in the principal centers
of the country and abroad, absorbing the
highest idealities to be found in his pro
fession.
Mr. Earley's best work, it Is paid, is to be
found in the churches, and particularly in
those in this city. He was the designer and
sculptor of the handflGme marble pulj)it
in St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church,
and made statues for a number of other
churches. At the Franciscan monastery in
Brookland the altars and statues were
erected by him. This work won hearty
commendation within and without the Ca
tholic Church, and in consideration of his
artistic endeavors was awarded a medal
?by Pope Leo XIII.
Native of England.
Mr. Earley was born in Birmingham,
England, in 1858, but was taken to Dublin
when a very young, boy. His father was
connected with the Pugin family, members
of which were the foremost English Gothic
architects. In this school he learned the
first principles of his art and w%s admitted
to the Royal Hibernian Academy at the age
of sixteen on the merits of his portfolio.
Then followed a tour of the continent,
continuing until 1879, when he returned to.
Dublin and was married. For three years
he remained in Ireland decorating churches,
coming to this country in 1881.
In addition to his works noted above he
was engaged to decorate government build
ings at Omaha, Buffalo, St. Louis and Port
land expositions. At the time of his death
he was engaged on work for the new Na
tional Museum, Baltimore custom house
and the new Department of Agriculture.
Mr. Earley's son, John J. Earley, survives
lii'm.
The funeral will take place from the
home of his son, 7-7 11th street northwest,
Monday morning at an hour to be hereafter
announced, followed by a requiem mass at
St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Rev.
Dr. D. J. Stafford, pastor.

PSEUDO PBINCE OF DENKARK.
Peter Carlson Expected to Wed Miss
Roosevelt.
i That the name of the Prince of Denmark
did not appear on the official !Lnt of guests
j at the White House wedding vu appar
ently both a shock and a surprise to Peter
Carlson when he appeared at the east en
trance of the President's official home last
evening. When questioned by one of the
policemen on duty there Ou*lson became in
dignant at the omission of his name from
the list.
Wh}"." he declared. "I'm the Prince of
Denmark and Miss Roosevelt is to marry
me In the morning. The match was ar
ranged by my royal mother, her highness,
the Queen of Denmark. It 1? all a mistake
about her proposed marriage to Mr. I?ng
worth because I am L*>ngworth's brother.
It's a sad mistake."
Carlson was arrayed for the nuptials. He
wore an opera hat, somewhat the worse for
wear; a soiled white vest and a pair of
tlove-coiored trousers that were travel
stained. Instead of being admitted to the
\\ hite House he was escorted to the first
