attached to the tire engine company which
a frw days ago moved from Seventh ami
Olive streets to No. 12 North Ninth street,
whfre new quarters are located.
The cpjarters Just made vacunt by the
removal of the engine company was known
as the old Seventh Street engine-house, and
many pioneer citizens of St. Liuls remem
ber it as the home of this city's original
volunteer lire department nearly a half
century ago.
The following extrart from the rncord
of the Jllssouri Fire Company. No. 3, now

of the original company: ".May 3. 1S33 The

much larger and better adapted to our

from Acting Governor Wright of the Phil

"After making available In Fnited States
money appropriations Immediately neces

about JGOT.COO money of the I'nited States.
Practically none is being received fronrcu?
toms or ln:ernal revenue. We must very
soon face the question of obtaining money

suggestions is to method of obtaining

In Jfexlcan currency, or can raise rate so
high that customs and Internal revenue

objectlonable and would greatly deplete

New York, Jlay 31. A frishtful accident.
In which a great automobile of the largest
type, a sort of road locomotive, swerved
from its track while soinu at the tre
mendous Freed of a mile In tifty-one sec
onds, and ploughed through a crowd of
several thousand spectators, brought the
speed-test races of the Automobile Club of
America to a sudden termination on the
Fouth Shore boulevard on Staten Island to
day. One man was killed outright and terribly
mangled; another was mortally injured, and
a large number of persons, both men and
women, sustained Injuries, many being
hurt seriously. Oddly enough, the two per
sons in the machine were not hurt. The
automobile was a huge clsar-shaped. electric-power
machine, manufactured by tho
Baker Motor Yehlcle Company of Cleve
land, O., and weighed a ton and a half.
V. C. Baker, president of the Baker com
pany, and C. A. Ienzer. the chauffeur of
the machine, were arrested.
Hom- tlif Accident Occnrrrd.
The accident occurred at 12S3 o'clock at
the three-quarter mile marl: on the racing
course. As the auto approched there It was
going at the rate of a mile in 51 seconds.
The surface of the boulevard was rough
and furrowed at this point, and as the huge
machine struck the spot it fairly leaped
Into the air. The steering lever got turned
slightly while it was in the air. when the
wheels reached the cround again the ma
chine swerved ani plowed through the
great crowd.
lien, women and children tried to escape,
but the thing was over before they had
moved from their places. The big machine
tossed those In Its path about like rubber
balls. Fcathcrstone was directly In the
path cf the juggernaut and the great ma
chine simply knocked him down and mashed
him to death.
The auto brought up at the edge of a
wcod. because there was no more machine
left to run. It was merely a great tangle
of wheels and machinery and split wood.
Itagard was found horribly mutilated under
h re;U tani.lp o debris and his rescuers
were comrHwl to pry his body free.
Ne.rul ItecnrilH Ilroken.
Before the accident which brought the
races to a sudden close, tho participants
In the mile dashes did not disappoint the
thousands who went to see the record3
broken. S. P. Davis's steam automobile
made a mile In 1:12. breaking the previous
world's record for his class, which was
'iri the motor cycle race, C. II. Schmitx
fixed a new time, when he finished In
110 2-5. against the former world's best
time of 1:12.
It Is probable that had not the accident
caused the officers to stop the events, there
would have been more records of the dif
ferent classes broken.
