THE PILE DRIVER U ENT OVER. Two Men Injured on the K, C. and P. Railroad. There was quite an accident on the Florida Central and Peninsular railroa! at the Savannah river bridge yesterday morning, w hich resulted in serious injury to two colored hands, who were working on a pile driver that was being used in repairing the trestle. The flat car ution which the pile driver was stationed and the engine and tender wi re out on the trestle and about twenty feet above the marsh below. The ma chine had been working but a short time when one of the guy ropes that held the b-om In place gave way, causing the heavy timber to swing round and throw the flat car out of equilibrium. The car upon which was the pile driver, was turned mpi-tely over, falling down off the tres tle and dragging the tender of the en gine after it. The engine Itself was al most wrenched from its position, but th weight of the car and tender broke the coupler, and it remained steady. At the time of the accident there were five men on the flat car and two on the tender. All of them managed to get ofT with the exception of three negro labor ers. who wera on the flat car. They w ere carried down into the mud and buried un der the overturned car. One of them for tunately escaped with several slight bruises, while the two others were quite seriously injured. one of them had his left ankle broken and his 1 ack severely sprained, while the other hal three or four ribs fractured, one of the broken bones penetrating the lung. lir. J. G. Jarrell was called out to attend the injured men, who, after their wounls w>re dressed, were sent up to Garnett. The names of the negroes were not learned. They were quite seriously injured, and It is not know n w hether both w ill live or not. The engine operating the pile driver w as quite badly damaged. It was turned up side down in the fall and was driven Into the mu-1 by the weight of the heavy car falling on top of it. The escape of all the other men is considered almost miracu lous. One of them Jumped from the flat car just as It was turning over, and land ed on a crosstle of the trestle. FELL FROM THE TOP OF A C AR. An Electric Itailwuy I.lnemnn Se riously Injured, John E.

Mrs. W illie K.'s Ball W ill Decide Her standing In the Four Hundred. From the Chicago News. Newport, R. I.—After twenty years of exclusiveness almost equaling that of lords and dukes and earls, Mrs. Alva S. Vanderbilt, it seems, has decided that New York society Is a pretty good and de sirable thing, after all, and worthy of a little cultivation. In the old days few were the weeks she deigned to give to the wonderful palaces on Fitfh avenue and at Newport. Her de light seemed to be In cruising In strange seas with a goodly and well chosen com pany, over whom she queened it right royally. Since the "late unpleasantness’’ the beautiful yacht Valiant, which was built to replace the Alva, Is no longer under her command and she Is wisely concluding to find for herself new pleasures and new Interests. It Is said by those who ought to know that the grand ball she proposes giving at Marble house in honor or the formal de but of her pretty daughter. Miss Consuelo is really for the purpose of making her own reappearance in society. She wishes to find out just exactly where she stands In the long list of the "I0O” and just how many people are willing to desert the powerful and popular family of Vander bilt for love of her. That it will be to choose between the two factions no one doubts for a moment. A bitter struggle will be waged In the fair city by the sea during the weeks when life seems best and bravest to all on the outside. It promises to be a struggle as bitter as that which drove William Waldorf Astor across the sea forever. England gave him what free American could not and decreed that as the eldest son of an eldest son he was head of the Astor family, and that was what the quarrel was about. With Newport again as the arena, a second battle will be fought between .he members of a family famous, like the As ters, for the their rich, red gold. It Is predicted by those who know much of life and of people that the result will be the same, and that at the end of this season Mrs. Alva Vanderbilt will remove her charming self, her daughter and her lares and penates to the land of good Queen Vic. But there will be plenty of fun for the lookers-on In the meantime, and many are perfectly willing to hurrah for thy winner, whichever it be. As an evidence of good faith and of her having become in reality one of the peo ple Mrs. Vanderbilt has decreed that the walls around Marble house are to fall and the heretofore vulgar crowd will be permitted to feast their hungry eyes up on the cold, white walls of the palace and speculate as to the cost of draping the 100 or more windows with their filmy, real lace curtains. Down will go the gates with the fence, and this will do away with Mrs. Van derbilt's very unique and thoroughly orig inal manner of receiving her guests. Wioi Marble house was opened for the first time, two years ago, the gates were kept religiously locked and there were two Swiss peasants dressed in their quaint, national costume stationed in picturesque little lodges on either side of the driie. Their sole duties were to find out the name of the occupant of the carriage and telephone It to the house. The answer came back as to Mrs. Vanderbilt's re ceiving or not receiving the guest that day. It is needless to say that the innovation was not adopted by the rest of the New port colony, and most of the would-be guests, after waiting twenty minutes or more for permission to enter, never tried a second time to find the fair mistress of the wonderfully beautiful mansion. All of the hidden glories are to he gen erously displayed this summer, and In stead of the stately and somewhat formal musicals which were Mrs. Vanderbilt's only contribution to social gayety in the old days, there will be dinners, dances bicycle meets and a grand ball to which many will be bidden. The great rooms of Marble house re quire a great number of people to fill them- In the grand ball room the "WO" would hardly make a comfortable crowd, so it is not likely that very exclusive entertain ing will be undertaken. Who of the powerful New York people would be her guests is a question which is puzzling a great many people. The Vanderbilt family is so firmly Intrenched socially and has won and kept so manv friends since entering society that the course they pursue toward Mrs. Alva Van derbilt will probably be adopted by half of the swell set. It is said that the occupants of Marble house are to be completely ignored bv the Cornelius Vanderbilt family at their New Breakers, and by Frederick Vander bilt at Rough Point. Mrs. John Jacob Astor. the beautiful voting leader is the close friend of Mrs. W. Seward Webb and she has espoused the Vanderbilt side' On the other side will be arranged Mr and Mrs. William Jay, the Duers and the Bel monts, alt social powira and extremely popular people. Those who will have the best of the sea son undoubtedly nre the neutral people, who take no sides, but are perfectly de lighted to accept the hospitality of both factions and are rather glad on the whole that the tbs of friendship are not close enough to force them Into taking aides one way or the other.
