that was all, and the way the young

served and ample justice was done the

A FALLING DERRICK
At the Mon'Mcello H?rtel Injures Two
Men?Due to Carelessness.
A derrick which was being rigged on
the rctot of the new Monticello Hotel,
fell yesterday afternoon about 2:30
o'clock, striking Mills Moody, of Suf?
folk, who Is employed OS an Iron work?
er. He was badly cut and bruised about
the head and arms. The cut about his
eye was uglier than dangerous, for it
was not necessary to sew it up. The
young man, who Is about 20 years of
age, was taken to St. Vincent's Hospi?
tal. Another workman, a rigger, was
also bruised In the accident, but was
n'ot seriously inconvenienced. Con?
tractor 'Patterson, who was standing di?
rectly in the path of the falling der?
rick, had a very narrow escape from
being crushed by it.
The accident was due to the careless?
ness of a colored laborer, who let go
the guy line of the derrick too soon.
