B. Forbes Car Dashes Into the Opening Doctor Thought He Was Going Over a Filled-in Trench. The body of Burrell Neider Is ly-1 ing at the Kirkendall undertaking parlors as the result of an accident in which the man was struck by an automobile driven by Dr. H. B. Forbes. The accident occurred near the corner of Twenty-seventh street on Lincoln avenue, about 10 o'clock this morning and the injured man died about an hour later. Neider was an employe of tho Utah Light and Railway company and at the time was digging a trench for a gas main. He had been throwing the dirt on both sides of the ditch, with the pile on the north side about twice as high as that on the south side, concealing the trench and the smaller pile from view. The trench was just deep enough to leave only the workman's head above the level of the ground, the pile of dirt entire ly concealing It from view on either side. Dr. Forbes was driving along the right side of the avenue, and, thinking that the embankment was over a trench that had been covered, attempted to drive his machine over it as he had done at several similar places along the same street, instead of skirting the double tracks of the Bamberger railroad, which run along Lincoln avenue. As the auto struck the embank ment, the front wheels dropped into the trench, crushing Neider s head, between the front springs of the ma chine and the south side of the trench. The man's skull was frac tured. Witnesses to the accident ran to the spot and. assisted by Dr. Forbes, lifted the automobile from the in I jured man and bore him to the side walk. Dr. Joyce was called but before he could arrive the auto-patrol with Sergeant Charles Layne reached the scene, having been called by an ex cited woman who stated that a man had been shot Police Chauffeur Guy Nelson tele phoned for the ambulance, but be fore its arrival Dr. loyce was pres ent and after examining Neider s in juries, stated that it would be use less to take him to the hospital. An Improvised stretcher of bed i springs and mattress was pressed into service and Neider was tender ly conveyed to a nearby home. 174) Twenty-seventh street where every effort of the physicians to prolong his life was of no avail. His skull I was terribly crushed and he died without regaining consciousness The 1 bodv was later removed to the Kirk , endall mortuary. Manager S. T. Whitaker of the Utah Light & Power company stated that Neider had been employed by the company as a frenchman for a little over a year and was regarded as a reliable man He was left hand ed and. In throwing the dirt from his excavation, was at a disadvant age In observing anything approach ing him from the direction in which the auto of Dr. Forbes came. Dr. Forbes Is greatly depressed over the sad accident and stated to i a representative of the Standard that he regretted the incident with all the intensity that one In the same position possibly could. He was driving at a moderate rate, and had passed over a number of places where the light company's trenches had been filled in and see ing the dirt pile in front of him was j a similar one though higher decided to pass over it af he had the others I The man's head was completely ob scured from view and the physician j was unaware that there was a trench Or a man in the vicinity. As the ma j chine mounted the pile, however, he , suddenly observed Neider in the act I of throwing a shovelful of earth from I the trench Throwing off the power ' and jamming both brakes with all his power he sought to arrest the mo 1 mentum of the machine but unfor , tunately was unable to do 60 with any degree of success. The trench in question, it is under stood, was unguarded and no cen sure is attached to the physician Neider was 30 years of age and is survived by a widow His home was at the rear of 256 Twenty sevond street. Funeral announcements will be made later. DICE GAME PLAYED ON JOHN STRONG. I SWEDE Henry Hamm was convicted in municipal court of the charge of petit larceny. Evidence in the case was to the effect that he had pluycd the I "dance game ' on John Strong, a Swede, and stolen about $6 from him Strong ttstified that he and a com panion were on a happy "Jag" Friday night, when they met Hamm and an other man He was singing and Hamm joined In the song, playfully grabbing him and swinging him around to the music Hamm contin ued his goodfellowshlp further b thrusting his hand in Strong's pocket and taking therefrom a knife and all his money. In his hurry to get his hand out of the pocket, Hamm tops it. About this time the companions of both meu had disappeared Strong missed his money and knife and ac cused Hamm of taking them and told hlra to return It. Hamm gave back the knife, he said, but took the money. The defendant's story was to the effect that he had met the "Swede" and his companion and had been in vited Into the jolly company. Not knowing any of the Swedish lan guage, he had started to slug the song, "Copenhagen Is taken, and all the big Swedes hid In the weeds " The latter part of the soug, he said, offended Strong and he had taken a knife out of his pocket as though Lo.UBe it on him. He grabbed the knife but soon returned it. James Brown, an old railroad man was a witness for the city. He said that he saw the two men apparently having a sociable time, but he no ticed th?t Strong was drunk and, having seen the "dance game" work ed before, he kept watching them and saw the episode of the knife changing hands. He did not see Strong make any angry motion with the knife at all. The police believe Hamm to be an old hand at the game and an old bruiser. His knuckles have the ap pearance of having been broken sev eral times.
