DISCUSSED THE TROLLEY. - I Freeholders held Long Meeting at New Brunswick Yesterday Afternoon-Much Business. I WORKED UNTIL NICHT.| Awarded Many Contracts but the Afternoon | Session was Devoted Almost Entirely I to the Trolley’s Efforts to Cross Cheese I quake Creek—Lawyer Silzer Makes | Argument. (Special to the Evening News). The awarding of bids for the different works for the county caused much dis mission at the afternoon meeting of the freeholders .yesterday. There was some difficulty over the certified checks accom panying the bids. The hearing of the Jersey Central T[-ac tion Company’s application for permis sion to cross the Cheesequako creek bridge was taken up, lawyer Silzer rep resenting the company stated that the company was ready to accept an or tue restrictions offered at the last meeting ex cept that requiring a bond of $10,003 to guarantee the keeping of the bridge in proper repair. The objection was made on the ground that the amount of the bond asked was excessive. Mr. Silzer presented an ordinance em b idying the restrictions and a- ked that they pass first leading. Mr. Allgair, chairman of the commit tee presented a number o( amendments to the restriction which he wished enr bodied in the ordinance and which orouglit on considerable discussion. One of these provided that if required the company should be given three days' no tice to repair the bridge. Ii no effort was made to do the work in that time the county would do it and send the bill to the company. If it failed to pay within ten days it would forfeit its rights. An oilier amendment provided that the coun ty should have the exclusive right to de cide when the company should be requir ed to help build a new county bridge. This was strenuously objected to by Law yer Silzer on tbe ground that the county was asking too much ol tbe company. He said tbe company would always be will ing to meet tbe county half way. Tbe amendment was placed in tbe ordinance which was adopted as amended on its first reading by a vote of fifteen for and two against. A resolution was adopted which provided that when the meeting adjourned it be until September 16, at 2 P. M. when the bearing would be cot ti i ued. MR.

Flagman on Drill Engine had Both Legs Cut Near Copper Works Siding Last Night— Fell Between Cars-Is now in City Hospital. WIFE WAS SUMMONED. George Dalbeer, of Elizabethport, who is a flagman with the crew on the big Central drill engine No. 342 is in the Perth Amboy city hospital with his right leg torn off above the knee and the left foot off just above the ankle. While drilling cars on the main line near the Raritan Copper Works switch last night at 5.40 o’clock he lost his hold on the brafee and fell from the forward end of two cars and was run over. All day the crew of the 342, which, is one of the “hog” type and one of the heaviest freight drilling engines on the Central railroad, were at work on the Raritan Copper Works sidings, and in the Perth Amboy yard, where they are continually kept busy shift ing cars. Last night, as was their custom, they pulled the loaded cars out from the Copper Works and was making up a train to go to Elizabeth - port. The loaded cars were sent down the main track on a flying drill while the engine went to the freight house siding to get the rest of the train. Dalbeer was in charge of the car cut loose and he was putting on brakes to stop them when he fell. On the car with Dalbeer was Henry Christenson, a boy living in South First shreet. When the unfortunate man fell down he tried his best to save him. Christenson grabbed the flagman by the coat collar but he did not have strength enough to pull him up. When the rest of the crew looked back for the signal irom the flagman that everything was all right they were horrified to find that Dalbeer was beneath the wheels. They rushed to his assistance and, as quickly as possible he 'was placed on the engine and hurried to the passenger station. Drs. J. L. Lund and G. W. Fithian were hastily summoned. They ar rived on the scene at the same time The injured man's ;wounds were dressed and a request sent to the Rar itan Copper Works for their ambul ance. When it arrived the injured man was taken to the hospital. During what seemed to be a long wait Dalbeer kept his nerve and it is due to his strong con stitution that he is alive today. He talked to the doctors and the Rev. S. Travena Jackson and begged to be taken home to his wife and family. V ine conductor, inomas ronaergrass and the injured man were great friends. When Pendergrass helped him np Dalbeer said: “Tommy, I guess I'm done for.’’ He is well liked by not only the crew but by everyone who knew him. He was of a cheerful disnosition and always willing to help someone else. An operation at the city hospital wilMie performed as soon as he gets a litte strength. The doctors hoped to operate on him last night, but ne was too weak. It is hoped that his life will be saved. His wife arrived as soon as possible and completely broko down at the sight of her hus band. It was only a short time ago, it is said, that Dalbeer was summoned home because one of bis children had been nearly killed by a trolley car.

Perth Amboy, N. J. i Paper Train Crashed into Penn sylvania Freight Near Smith Street Crossing During the Fog Early This Morn ing-Rear Brakeman Crushed to Death. TRAFFIC WAS BLOCKED. Ono man (lean, and two injured is the result of a wreck on the 'Central Railroad early this morning,when the paper train, dne here at 4.54 o’clock, ran into an extra freight at the New Brunswick avenue crossing. James Donahue, of Bordentown, a flagman on the freight, was killed al most instantly. Joseph M. Newell, the conductor, had his head badly cut. R. G. VanCleaf of Jamesburg, the hrnkeman of the freight, had his left leg slightly bruised. It was 4.50 o’clock this morning when the Penn sylvania extra freight, 856, which car ries perishable fruit from the south to Jersey City everv night was return ing to Camden in charge of Engineer Harley Hewitt, of Camden. Thev were running slowly because of the heavy fog. When the freight passed the New Brunswick avenue crossing OonanctorNewell went to the caboose on the rear. As he did so he saw the fast paper train, with the big Penn sylvania engine 733 in charge of Engi neer Benjamin Smith, rapidly ap proaching. The paper train is due here at 4.54 and was late. The conduc tor saw a collision was inevitable and gave a cry of warning, but it was of no use for the engine of the express crashed into the rear of the freight before he himself could leap to safety. Before Engineer Smith, of the ex 1 press, could stop his engine, it had ' ploughed through the caboose and had pushed the freight engine from a point opposite the knee pants factory on New Brunswick avenue to McCor mick’s coal yards, at Smith street, a distance of about 150 feet. When the big engine finally came to a standstill the caboose was a total wreck and beneath the debris was the body of Donahue. Willing hands set to work and in a short time the injured men were free from the wreck, but Donahue’s body was wedged in the wreckage and it was necessary to secure hoisting[jac-ks, which after a search, were found in the yard of Martin Hanson nearby. With these the railroad men lifted an end of what was left of the caboose and the body of the dead man, badly crushed, was taken out. In the meantime the coroner, Dr. P f! Honrr orripotl ond crovp a npr. mit for the removal of the body to Burke’s morgue in State street. Dr. Henry tnen turned his attention to t he injured. Finding they were not seriously hurt, he dressed their wounds, and they remained on duty. Just how the accident happened was told to a News reporter by one of the crew of the wrecked freight train. “We were on our way home to Cam den,” he said, “and were running slowly because of the fog. We did not expect to be hit by the paper train, because we had the right of way. When the express passed the last tower it was to be supposed that the operator would have held it for a few minutes but he didn’t and why I [do not understand. “Poor Donahue,” continued the speaker, “was sitting in the forward part of the caboose and the heavy timbers crushed him to death..” Both the freight ami passenger en gines where forced partly otf tl^e track by the collision. The wreck train from Jersey City arrived abotit 9.30 o’clock and began to clear up the de bris. The people down the caf.st got their morning paper several hours later than usual. J Real estate!
