Eckington Trolley Gar Badly
Smashed at Brookland.
TWO WOMEN WERE INJURED
Other PaensersShockedandBrulNed
In the Collision Women Held TUelr
Children Above Their Head.
Wild Scene on tho Car Second Ac
cident in Leas. TUan a Week.
Tue Brookland terminus of the Eckington
trolley road was the scene ot another acci
dent about 9.45 last night, caused by
a partially wrecked motor car, and badly
Injuring Miss Katie Middlekuff, of
Brookland, and Mrs. Mary Nichols, wlfo of
Charles O. Nichols, a carpenter, at No. 809
E street southeast.
Motor car No. 22, run by Motorman
John Garner and Conductor Hawkins, and
containing about thirty passengers, nearly
all women and children, wentbowliugalong
tho track which runs east from the curve
below the Catholic University and Increased
Its ra pid rate do wn thegrade from the curve.
When anouurifty feet from the bumper,
which is made of huge beams sunk Into the
ground nt the terminus of the rails, the
moUirman attempted to slow up the car,
but with undiminished speed It struck the
bumpers. -,-
BIIE JUMPED.
There wawi terrible crash, followed by
the ripping off tho fender ot the car and
throwing the front seats from their sockets.
Miss Middlekauff, Just before the col
lision, seeing the accident was inevitable,
jumped from the car, falling on her knees.
When the crash came every passenger
was thrown forward over seats, and for" a
momentrlt api ired as if many would be
crushed under the scats or by the feet of
"others. Several women hod their children
above tbeir heads to prevent them from
being crushed.
In the meantime Mounted Policeman
West, who was on his horse but a dozen
yards from the scene of the mishap, came
up and helped the passengers from the
car. It wat then found that Mrs. ft tenuis
was suffering from a so ere concussion
of the head and other cuts and bruises.
OTHER PASSENGERS BRUISED.
Miss Middlekauff was aided to her home
In South Brookland. She was suffering
from a number of painful lacerations and
bruises of the lower limbs and body.
Many other passengers were bruised in
the accident, but luckily- none were se
riously hurt.
Motorman Garner stuck to his lever
through the whole affair and though the
shock lifted him Dearly over the dashboard,
he came out uninjured. .
Garner's excuse was that he could sot
control the car, bu tas soon as the power
house was notified, the night super
intendent came to the scene and, patching
up the car as good as possible, ran it back
to the can o and then came down thclncline
but succeeded In stopping the car before
It readied the bumpers.
Persons on tho car, though thoroughly
Bhaken up and frightened, stood In knots
about the scene talking of their narrow
escape.
One man remarked that "If this thing
Is kept up, tho railway will not have any
bumpers left."
THREE BURNED TO DEATH
Explosion of Benzine in Paint Works
Resulted in a Fatal Fire.
Oversight In leaving Fire Under
a Tarnish Kettle Thought to Have
Caused the Disaster.
Plltsburg, Pa , Sept. 21. Three men lost
their lives and property was damaged to
the extent ot $40,000 to-day as the result
of an explosion of benzine at the Atlas Faint
Works of W.K. Freed & Co .Alleghany. The
dead are:
Joseph Lasovio, aged 21; single.
Henry Turner, aged C6;leaves a wife and
five children.
George Tule.
The last named was burned beyond
recognition, while the others were so
terribly burned that they died shortly
after reaching the hospital.
The cause of the explosion Is not defi
nitely known, but Is thought to have been
brought about by an oversight In leaving
fire under a varnish kettle when benzine
was being used In mixing paint.
Freed & Company's loss Is $35,000,
and Lutz Brothers, picklers. In the same
building, lose $5,000.

HOSPITALS OVERCROWDED
Hundreds of Patients Lying on tlio
Ground, Groaning and Suffering for
Lack of Medicine, "While Filth Is
AH Around Them BnaCommKnary
Serlco and Climate Prostrating.
Paris, Sept. 21. Mail adices received
here from Madagascar reveal a deplorable
condition of affairs iu that island. In
hospitals calculated for the accommodation
of 250 men aro crowded 600 sick French
soldiers, lying upon lmproised bunks and
but Insufficiently attended by doctors and
nurses.
In each hospital hundreds of patients arc
lying groaning upon the bare ground and
tuffcring from lack of medicine and food,
while tho filthiness that prevails every
where about them Is Indescribable. Tb
doctors are doing tho best they can for
the alleviation of the sufferings of the
sick and the mortality is surprisingly small
when the existing conditions arc taken into
consideration.
Very few of the patients, however, re
cover completely, most of those attacked
with sickness being so reduced with anaemia
and 60 subject to strange halluclnationsas
to be quite incapacitated forfurther service
in the field.
In many cases thebodies of French soldiers
have been devoured by dogs before they
could be buried. In a letter to the minister
of war. Gen. Ducbene openly admits that
the hardships of the march, and bad com
missary service have sent 3,000 soldiers to
hospital, and that the bad climate is pros
trating the troops.
