passenger coaches and a com;

left Red Bank on time, and
was traveling about a mile a
minute, when the driving rod
on the right side of the engine
broke and flying up struck the
top of the cab over the window
where Engineer Bennett sat.
He was knocked from his seat
and the broken rod smashed
the cab into splinters. He was
badly bruised and bleeding

by the timbers which had been
crushed in upon him. After a
run of a mile under these con

came to a standstill. The fire

House fame, who served a four
years' term in Sing Sing prison
for killing Jim Piak, and was
restored to citizenship by Gov
ernor Cleveland,- nfter his release,-

physicians he will, if possible,

the hope of gaining relief. He
Is said to be so reduced in
strength, however, as to make
this trip impossible without
endangering his life:
Mr? Stokes gained wide at
tention in 1872 by killing Fisk.
He had come from Philadel
phia, his native cityr and was
rising to a position of wealth
and influence when this tragedy
occurred. Youngs Stokes had
been- a bright fellow in college
and was a general favorite with
his classmates. His father, a
merchant of high standing in
Philadelphia,- sent him to the
metropolis", believing that here
he would have wider scope for
hi talents.
Stokes arrived in New "ork

Fisk, then perhaps the boldest
and most successful plunger in
the Streetj and the partner of
Jay Gould in the Erie Railroad
enterprise, made the acquaint

him to his friendship. The two
men soon became intimate and4
Were much together after busi

strikingly handsome mah and
he and Fisk made a notable
team in certain quarters of the
city. Fisk put chances in the
way of his friend, and StokeB,
quick to grasp an opportunity,
soon found the royal road to
fortune. He accepted all favors,
was discreet, had the reputation
of being "a good fellow," and
rapidly developed as a finan
cier. Fisk prided himself on his
keen insight into human nature.
"Stokes is a nice felloWi' he
would say, "a capital fellow,
but I would not trust him
further than that I"

The friendship between the
two men grew until, suddenly,
the ties which bound them were
snapped by a woman's hand.
" Jo8ie Mansfieldj a courtesan
young and beatiful,- drifted to
the metropolis from an interior
city and with one glance of her
eyes won Jim Fisk. He install

on West Twentythird street

Ed Stokes was a guest at one
of these receptions and the
hostess looked upon him with
extraordinary favor. Someone
told Fisk of the progress Stokes
had made in Josie Mansfield's
affections, and instantly the
ties which bound the friends
were broken.
Fisk deserted the woman and
started in to ruin Stokes in
