HIS LIFE WAS CRUSHED OUT FATAL ACCIDEXT AT THE XEW BANK WILDING YESTERDAY. Frank W. Cayton Caught Between the Elevator and the Wall His Neck Broken and Client Crushed Death Was Instant aneous Victim Lived in Westviile. The new building of the First Na tional bank at the corner of Church and Crown streets was late yesterday af ternoon the scene of a fatal ucclcUnt whereby Frank W. Cayton, the elevator attendant, had hie life literally crush ed out of him. Cayton was about thirty years old, unmarried and lived with his widowed mother, whose sole support he was, at 71 Central avenue, Westviile. CSyton's neck was broken and his chest crushed almost to a pulp. About 4:50 o'clock yesterday after noon Cayton was running the elevator in the ibank building and at the sixth story , the guide wire rope snapped and bounded to the top of the building, and then back again to. within a foot of the. floor of the seventh story. The crash, of the elevator against the top of the building attracted the attention of a number of men who were working in the building, and they rushed to the sceoe. Upon their arrival they found that the elevator had been stopped by Cap ton's body, which had been wedged be tween the floor of the elevator and the wall. The body was extricated from its position and laid on the floor of the elevator. After one or two convulsive gasps the head fell back and Cayton was dead. Medical Examiner White was prompt ly notified and was soon upon the scene. After examining the remains be found that Cayton's neck was (broken, his chest cruslied in and the right side of the back and hips badly scraped. Death' was instantaneous. Medical Examiner White is of the opinion that the cause of Cayton's death was purely accidental and that no one was responsible. He thinks that Cayton evidently intended to get off at the sixth story, but the guide wire broke and he was' unable to control the car. When the car re bounded he was thrown out and wedg ed between the car and the elevator well. Some- of the occupants of the build Sng have, however, entirely different theories as to the manner in which the accident occurred. They think that Cayton had left a passenger at the etxth floor, and started the elevator preparatory to ascending. For some reason the door failed to close and in leaning forward to close it, Cayton being lame, lost hi3 balance and fell between the car and the well. They also think that the guide wire rope was broken by the force of the car strik in against the top of the building. Officer H. J. (Donnelly, who was off duty at the time, was passing the build ing when the accident occurred. He rtished in and ran up stairs to the top of the building to notify the janitor, who was at the top, and see if the freight elevator could be used. He also sent a boy for the ambulance and no tified Dr. Wheeler. Dr. Wheeler came within a few moments, but Cayton was dead. Medical Examiner White stated that the elevator company had been notified and would send a man from New York to-day to repair the break and run the elevator for the present. There will .. be no coroner's inquest, as there are apparently no indications of criminal carelessness. After the accident the remaihs were taken to Lewis & Maycock's. Cayton was about thirty years old, and lived In Westviile. He was a house carpen ter by trade, and about two years ago, while working1 on a scoffold, fell off and broke btTth legs. He was taken to the hospital where he remained for a long time, and had been lame ever since. About two weeks ago he se cured the position at the bank. Believed to Be the Holt Hill. New York, Aug. 9. It is believed that the vessel which with the Prince Oscar was sunk im collision off the coast of Brazil is the British ship Holt Hill. The Holt Hill sailed from San Fran cisco for Queenstown, April 23, probably carrying only grain. On July 9, four days before the collision she was spok- iem in latitude 17.00 south and longitude 33.00 west, about 442 miles south of the scene of the disaster. With a fair wind, she would have been on the 13th in about the position indicated. The Holt Hill was a four-masted steel ship of 2269 tons register and was owned by (William Price & Co., of Liverpool. OXE STEAMER SCXK. One Fireman Was Drowned in a Collision Near Wyandotte. Detroit, Aug. 9. Steamers Britannic and Russia collided in the river just below Wyandotte this evening. The for mer was sunk and one of her firemen were drowned. The Russia had a hole stove in her bow, but managed to keep afloat until she reached the Detroit dry dock. The Britannic was loaded with ore. The steamers Exchanged proper passing signals, but just before they reached each other the wheel chain of the Britannic broke and she took a sudden sheer directly across the "toow of the Russia. " There was no time to avoid a col lision. The Russia struck her on the starboard side amidships, opening a big gap. The Britannic filled and sank at once in thirty feet of water. All her crew except one escaped. The Britannic was a wooden vessel of 1.121 tons. She was owned by W. J. AVhite of Cleveland. She was valued at $00,000. Covered by insurance. WREXX II KMHOIW, He Made a Strong Fight Against Chnce lu the Match. Long Branch, Aug. 9. At the tennis tournament to-day Champion Wrenn went down before Chace and Stevens got only one game in a three-set match with Larned. Wrenn made a strong fight against Chace in the first two sets and every point was fought with desperate energy on both sides, At the end of the second set each was pretty well overcome by the heat, but Chace pulled himself together for a winning finish and ran out the remaining two sets with comparative ease. Stevens had been playing an unusual ly successful game this week and his overthrow by Larned upset the cal culations of the talent. Larned's form was perfect and all his shots came oft with a speed and accuracy which were little short of phenomenal. Earlier in the day Parker defaulted to Foote afUr the latter had secured the lead. As the tournament now stands Wrenn, Stevens, Chace and Larned re-tied for first place to-morrow. The summary. A. E. Foote, New Haven, beat W. G. Parker, New York, 8-6, 4-3, defaulted. W. A. Larned, Summit, beat Richard Stevens, Hoboken, 6-1, 6-0, 6-0. Mal colm Chace, Providence, beat R. D. Wrenn, Chicago, 7-5, 5-7, 613, 6-1. Cincinnati Gets Orders. Newport, N. I., Aug. 9. Orders have been received for United States steam ship Cincinnati to sail for Key West and she will sailearly in the morning to relieve the Atlanta. OX THE MM FIELD.

WOODMQNT'S GALA NIGHT A ORAXD ILhVMIXATIOX AXD MA- MINE DISPLAY, A Beautiful Sight Presented The Illumin ated Cottages The Procession of Boats-' Other Features of the Display It Was a True Success About 1,000 Visitors From This City. The Illumination at Woodmont last evening was a grand success. The amusement committee and the cottagers co-operated to make the affair a suc cess and the weather proved favorable to the delight of all. One feature of the event was a procession of decorated boats sailing from Merwin's Point to Oyster river and return. - The procession was headed by Frank Hitchcock's naptha launch "Flash" of Bridgeport, with the M'llford band of twenty-two musicians under the leader ship of M.

Fireworks were displayed from many of the boats in the procession, making the spectacle very realistic. Many hundreds of dollars worth of fireworks were fired from Great Rock at Mer win's Pota.t under the supervision of an expert from New York. Many of the pieces brought forth loud applause. The cottages presented a very pretty sight, .mong them those of: On Central avenue Ed. I. Atwater, W. H. Butricks, J. C. Cannon, J. J.

Politicians here believe the president Will appoint Senator William Lindsay to fill the United States supreme cout vacancy caused by the death of Justice Jackson. The nlan is -to run Secrtsry Carlisle for the senatorship which will be vacated by Judge Lindsay. If in- the face of the manifest free silver sentiment in Ken tnrkv Mr. Carlisle is elected senator on a sound money standard it is argued the prestige he gains in this way will help him along for the presidential nomina tion. Tt l-s generally thought in this state that Mr. Carlisle is the admin istration's choice for that nomination. Was a Day of Surprise. Portland, Me., Aug. 9. This was a fine day for Rigby. There was a large crowd. The sport was the best yet witnessed at the August meet. It was another day of surprises for in nearly all of the three cases new and untried horses came in winners. Six starters entered the 2:24 trot. Bion secured the first two heats with comparative ease. but in the next Lady Bu took the pole at the turn and came down the wire in the lead. After Maud P. had obtained the first heat in the 2:14 pace Eliza K. secured the following by making great spurts. It was easy for Pilgrim to land winner three straight in the 2:30 pacing-. COXDITIOX OF TRADE. Bradstreets Reports a Very Good Business For the Pant Week. New York, Aug. 9. Bradstreets to morrow will say: The features of the week are a continuance of the remark able strength of the demand for in crease in the prodluction of and the ad vance In prices of steel and Iron, prac tically all first class producing plants having been put Into service and not a few of the cripples. No rebound since the depression of 1894 has been stronger or more surprising than that in iron and steel. Of the same nature is the evidence of improved business condl tions shown by the activity in almost all manufacturing lines, more particular ly in those in which Iron and 6tcel are employed. Demands for cars have been heavily Increased, as have requests for steel rails, and in consequence the Bos- semer pig iron. In cotton goods, pres ent prices, which have an upward ten dency, do not represent the full ad vance in the quotations of raw mate rial. While midsummer, dullness char acterizes all but a few departments of industry and commerce, it is plain that the distribution is far in excess of the total of a year ago, and that the out look is quite favorable. Prices have shown no great change this week, cot ton, leather and prints being note worthy for advances, and copper for its strength after its sudden upward rush in prices. At large eastern centers the only notheworthy change is In increased confidence in a large volume of busi ness in the fall, though as yet no mate rial progress has been made in that di rection, although improvements in sales of commercial travelers is reported from most cities covered. There have been moderate changes in general trade in the southern states, the most-striking being at Dallas and In general throughout Texas. Crops of cotton and corn there are large, and country mer chants are buying more freely.' Build ing is quite active in Texas, and has had the usual effect. on the building trades. At Memphis there has been a grain In the volume of merchandise. At Nashville business Is quite active, with an improvement In collections, owing to the marketing of wheat. Arrivals of new rie at New Orleans are small and prices unsatisfactory. With the free movement of new crop cotton, southern wholesale merchants are confident general trade will prompt ly respond. The center of commercial activity at the west follows a line drawn from St. Louis through Chicago, St. Paul, and Minneapolis, with an im provement also shown along the Ohio river valley. Reports of large crops of Indian corn and spring wheat continue a feature and although corn will not be beyond danger for more than a month interior merchants at man Doints are beelnnin to discount the outlook by purchasing more -freely for fall orders for dress goods, hats, caps, clothing and shoes, to a large degree the result of personal selection by interior merchants. General trade on the Pacific coast has improved within a month. One of the features is the recent importance of the foreign trade of Seattle fend Tacoma. The development of our in terchange of commodities with oriental, Mexican, Central and South American countries is having a marked effect up on the cities named. San Francisco authorities wire that the wheat crop in California is admittedly below the normal and that fruits in that state are ripening faster almost than the canneries can handle them. Exports of wheat, flour Included as wheat, from both coasts of the United States and from Montreal amount o 1,550,000 bushels this week against 3,417,- 000 bushels ini the week a year ago. On August 1 American, European and afloat for Europe stocks were smaller since than 1892 at a like date, 24,000,000 bushels less than one year ago and 33,- 000,000 bushels less than two years ago. But as compared with August 1, 1892, the increased quantity held this year is 20,000,000 and as compared with 1891 the Increase is 33,000,000. The bullish fea ture of the exhibit is found in the un precendented decrease more than 12,- 000,000 in the world's stocks of wheat during July this year. In July 1889 the world's stocks of available wheat in creased about 3,000,000. An improvement in trade is report ed "from Montreal, where maturing bill3 met on; August 1 was in excess of an ticipations, renewals asked for having been fully 10 per cent, fewer than a year ago. Canadian cotton manufacture have advanced prices for all products ad woolen goods markers on some t their fabrics. Cmp reports from 11 points in Nova Scotia indicate more than an average out turn, notwith standing the recent draught. Bank clearings at Wlnnepeg, Hamilton, To ronto, Montreal and Halifax amount to $20,934,000 this week against $17,794,000 a year ago. Tool Company Assign,. New York, Aug. 9. The Essex Tool Manufacturing company, manufactur ers of tools and fancy hardware, at 97 Chambers street, and at Newark, N J., assigned. The company has offices with the C. F. Guyon company, which assigned yesterday. C. F. Guyon is president of both companies. National Cycle Tournament. Chicago, Aug. 9. The National Bicy cle tournament, under the auspices of the Associated Cycling clubs of Chica go and the Chicago Athletic association openea to-aay at me nrcago Atnietic association grounds. The weather was scorching hot and dry, making a fast track, but the attendance was not as large as was expected. The perform ance was first class. The chief event was the open mile, diss B, in which E. C. Bald of Buffalo lowered the world's amateur record to 1:58 1-5. There were four heats before the final. Bald win ning the second in 232 1-5. ACCIDENT TO DEFENDEll AXOTHEX MARK IS ADDED XO HEM LIST OF MISFORTUXES. She Ban Aground While Trying to Slake Her Berth at Brenton's Cove Captain Hank HaffWas at the Wheel When She Struck-Flonted Off By the Tide. Newport, R. I., Aug. 9. Defender met with another accident this afternoon which may be added to her already long list of misfortunes. The yacht ran aground while trying to make Its berth in Brenton's Cove, after taking a spin outside this afternoon. Captain Hank Haff was at the wheel when Defender struck anri he worked like a beaver until the boat floated. It was 4:45 when Defender's towering sail was seen mak ing in past the permanent wharf at Fort Adams. ' Just about this time Captain Haff stepped up to the wheel and when the boat had what was considered proper bearings he threw over the wheel with the Intention of shooting up into the Cove to an anchorage. He had come a little short of his proper course and with its nineteen feet draft the yacht brought up all standing in a mud bank, about 300 yards off Black Bury, where there is a decided shoal. The yacht had headway and after the first time fetching up appeared to forge ahead in two distinct hitches each time stop ping so suddenly as to quiver from stem to stern. The tender Hattle Palmer was shortly alongside and tried, from various positions, to haul Defender off, but the latter would not budge. Cables were run out, but these proved insuffi cient as well and it was decided that it would be better to await the assist ance of the all-powerful tide. This proved equal to the occasion and after being held three hours she came off. The proposed race for to-morrow Is off, as Jubilee sailed about 6 o'clock having received orders to return to Bos ton. Late this afternoon Vigilant returned up the bay to Bristol and even the race between the little sloops Uderlm and Mlneola was declared off to-night and now there is but slight prospects of an Important race Monday. IT IS A MAMMOTH MACHIXE. Largest Ever Built Built In Two Sections on Account of Its Great Size A World Famous Machine. F. B. Shuster, proprietor of John Adt & Son's machine building . establish ment, corner State and Mill River streets, has completed, and is about to ship, the largest automatic wire straightening and cutting machine ever built by the above named firm or ever built In America. It is designed for straightening and cutting in lengths of twenty-one feet and shorter, brass, copper and steel wire from three-eighths to five-eighths of a.n inch in diameter. The style of the famous machines built only at this manufactory has been changed and improved and new feat ures added by the enterprising pro prietor, which are meeting with great approval from those who are using these machines. They are constructed with a straightener which revolves con tinually, through which the wire passes into a long grooved bar or sleeve with an adjustable gauge therein, against which the wire strikes. By the wire striking against this wire or gauge in the guide bar, it operates a lever at tachment, which in turn operates the cut off of the machine. Forked hold ers are employed in this machine to catch the wire as it is cut off and dropped from the groove in the guide bar. These holders are mounted upon a piece of wrought iron pipe, which Is fastened In the base of the machine at one end and at the other is supported by a floor stand. Some of the holders are carried up so as to support the shaft, guide bar, and other necessary parts, thus rendering great security and strength to the various parts of the cutting extension. The big machine spoken of above is of such 'enormous length that it was impossible to obtain a car long enough upon which it could be shipped. To obviate this, it was necessary to build It in two sections, thereby allowing he mammoth machine to be shipped and handled to better advantage. Its weight is over two and one-half tons. It is to be consigned to the famous concern of the Messrs. Holmes, Booth & Haydens, Waterbury, whose factory is, of national renown. They are large users of Mr. Adt's patent automatic wire straightening and cutting ma chines and speak in the highest terms of praise of the quality and quantity of work done by the use of these world famous pieces of mechanism. These machines are, in fact, used by all of the large wire mill sandi manufacturers the world over. The mechanical force at the Adt fac tory has been increased nearly 25 per cent, since the new proprietor took hold and as the outlook now is, the force will be increased as much more in a short while. The machines built by this firm are now used in England, Scotland, Nor way, Sweden, France, Canada, Mexi co, United States, in fact, in all civil ized countries of the globe and all manufacturers using them claim they are without equal. Settled With McKinley. Duluth, Minn., Aug. 9. It is learned from authentic sources that the Rocke feller corporation has quietly settled with Willliam McKiniey for $19S,744. McKinley sued the Lake Shore Consoli dated Iron company for $600,000. It was a sure thing that McKinley would win, for, when the case was tried in June a single juror was the only ob stacle to a big verdict, A FIXE TIME. N. E. O. F. Outing Last Evening. A, large party of the New England Order of Protection left at 7:30 last evening on special cars for a trolley ride to Lake Saltonstall, going from there to the Forbes house, Morris Cove, where the party sat down to a ban quet. After provld.ng for the wants of the inner man the grand secretary, F. D. Grinn-ell, addressed the meeting, stating that he believed that the or der In Connecticut would do as well this year as last. The supreme lodges recognized Connecticut as doing a noble work the past year at their March session by electing our grand warden, L. P. Deming. as supreme vice warden of the order, and it is believed that the supreme vice warden will be pro moted to the place of supreme warden at the next election.. The work that is progressing so favorably during the -summer months will become still greater as the year progresses. He Introduced the grand warden, who spoke Impressively of the death of the man in charge of the elevator of the First National Bank building. He said that the sight of that man going to his death in the elevator had so un nerved him that he did not feel last night as he otherwise would. It was a lesson to us that we had no lien on life, and how necessary it was. to insure for the benefit of those depend ent on us should death visit us, as it often does unexpectedly. Warden Chapin of Charter Oak lodge said that there was no reason why the New England order should not do bet ter than another because it had superior advantages to offer. He paid a glow ing tribute to the work of the medical examiners, who, he said, had contribut ed greatly to keeping the assessments at a very low figure. fast waraen araaiey oi wincnester lodge replied that as far as his lodge was concerned it was doing well and was going to continue in the work. Deputy Henze of Mozart lodge spoke of the brilliant work of his lodge, and the future was promising for better work than ever. Junior Past Warden Mcintosh of Charter Oak lodge spoke of the giant strides the New England order had made in the past, not only in the num ber, but in the character of the mem bers in the performance of the ritualis tic work, in the business way the dif ferent lodges conducted their meetings and in the reputation it . has gained throughout the entire community. With a limited area in which 'to work, an extremely -low entrance fee and the lowest cost of insurance of any insur ance organization, it was better equip ped for Work than any other. He was followed by Warden Plum- mer of Fort Hale lodge, Who said that he was proud of the record it made, and they were going to .keep it up to its usual standard. : H. Staby, supreme representative, spoke in behalf of Mozart lodge. War den Lunsden of Gladstone lodge as sured the members that his lodge would be sure to keep up it sreputation.
