Accident, and Five O’CLock Last Evening
the Time—No One Hart.
Locomotive* often leave the rail! on
which they usually run, with more or
less disastrous results to lifo aud prop
erty.
It Isaiiuie unusual, however, for a
locomotive, drawing a train of loaded
cars, to forsake Its usual paths, travel
I forty or fifty feet over a city street,
and then, after crossing a gutter and
mounting the sidewalk, to bang Itself
into a brick bouse, and make a narrow
escape from descending into the cellar
of the house aforesaid—and all without
any damage to either limb or lifo.
This Is wnat happened at the inter
section of Sixteenth and Main streets,
at the north end of the Main street
stone bridge, at tivo minutos after five
o’clock yesterday afternoon, and the
unusual accident drew au enormous
crowd of people to the spot in a few
minutes, people lingering about the
scene until after dark, discussing the
affair, and speculating upon what might
have happeued had not things happen
ed precisely as they did.

THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT.
h, ____—----—
engine No. 484, io charge.of Engineer
Patrick King, with Fireman W. P.
Blanchard in the cab with him, ran
through the B. A O. yards between Six
teenth and Seventeenth streets, with a
train of seven or eight loaded coal cars.
The heavy train started down the grade
at Chaplina street all right, and ran
aloug in the usual manner until the
i engine struck the frog of the switch
' leading to the new building of Baer
Bros., at the Southeast corner of
Main and Sixteenth. There the truck
wheels of the engioe left the rails, J
presumably being throwu off by the
frog, and the big machine left the
curved track at a tangent, heading
straight for the partition wall which
divides the restaurant of Scott Rich
ards, No. 1525 Main street, from T. II.
Higgins’ paint store, No. 1523. When
the wheels left the rails they struck the
heavy oak planking alongside the track,
and the engineer did not realize th** sit
uation for a couple of seconds, but as
soon as he did he shut off steam, whis
tled for the brakes, and revers
ed. The heavy weight of
the loaded coal cars made it
Impossible to stop the engine, however,
and as she seemed bent on keeping
right on the course chosen, the engi
neer and fireman climbed out of the
cab In short order and “let her go.”
The engine cut clear across tho track,
plowed through the brick paving,which
was never intended to sustain the
weight of full-fledged locomotives, and
the pilot struck a big electric railway
pole about the time the front truck
wheels hit the curbing. Neither post
or curbing stopped the engine, however,
the big timber being smashed into
kindling wood, in a twinkling, and the
engine mounted upon the pave
ment and crashed Into the build
lug. J ust at the partition wall, be
fore referred to. A large section
of the fronts of both the paint store and
restaurant were knocked out. but the
momentum of the engine bad teen con
siderably checked by the big post and
* the curbing, and after plowing into the
brick partition wall for two or three
feet the engine came to a standstill. A
very little more speed in the engine, or
a very little less resistance in the ob
stacles striking It, and the locomotive
would have landed lu the cellar of the
building, and It would have been
a case of having to tear
the house down to rescue the wayward
machine. As it was, it stopped just in
the nick of time. The cars of the coal
train did not leave the rails, although
the fore wheels of the tender ran
off, and this fact aided somewhat in
checking the destructive course of the
locomotive, as the coupling between
the engine and tender did not snap, al
though subject to a heavy straiu.
While the big crowd which gathered
was speculating as to how the engine
would be replaced on the track, the B.
A O. force went to work. An engine
was sent over the Terminal tracks,
through the Chapline hill tunnel, around
over the Penlusula. back through the
B. A O. tunnel, and dowu Sixteenth
street to the rear end of the coal train,
the leaded cats were towed out of the
way, and then the new engine was
hitched to the one standing in the
street, and in an hour and ten minutes
from the time of the accident the de- ;
railed engine was back ou the track and j
Vi (auiw n ao i pcuuivti V» V* v V* - V M «U
street line.
The building is owned by the Rail- |
road Company, and it will not cost more
than a couple or three hundred dollars ,
to make repairs. The engine was dam-j
aged about the pilot, which was broke
off, but otherwise she is all right, aud ;
but slight repairs will be necessary. A j
few new bricks in tbe street, and side
walk, aud a new railway pole will com
plete tne repairs.
Mr. Higgins’ office was located just >
where the engine started to climb iuto
his place of business, and his office fur- j
nlture and effects were badly tumbled I
around, but the loss on this score will
not amount to a great deal. Street car J
travel on Main street was interrupted
about au hour by tbe accident.

SESSIONS, LAST BVBNING.
Police Officers Who Don’t Pay Their Debts to Be
Dismissed From the Force—The Qaestion of
Killing Dogs—The Old Vigilant
Engine to Be Repaired.
There were unusually lively and in
teresting sessions of the Council Com
mittees of Fire and Police, last even
ing.
Both bodies bad matters of some im
portance up for consideration, the Fire
Committee dealing with the question of
repairing the old Vigilant engine or
buying au entirely new machine, while
Police wrestled with the question of
allowing the Chief of Police a dollar for
each and every dog killed by his men,
and also what should be done with
police officers who refused to pay their
honest debts.
The Police Committee met in the pri
vate office of the Chief.
The auditing of bills was proceeded
j with quietly until an Item of $37, for
! dogs killed during the month of May,
| came up. This revived the talk which
i has been heard in the Committee on
j previous auditing days, as to the advls
I ability of amending the existing ordi
; nauce so a9 to lop off this perquisite of
[ the Chief’s, aud there was a pretty gen
eral aud free interchange of opinion.
An examination of the ordinance book
showed that the law authorizing the
payment of the dollar for each dog
killed was passed by Council in 1881,
and has been in full force and effect
ever since. It was also found that the
ordinance required the Chief to either
bury the deceased canine or transport
the remains to tbo crematory. After
some talk Mr. Brock made a motion
thn rnmmittee recommend to
Council that tho existing ordinance be
cbauged. The Chief was then called
in, and he stated that it cost him
anywhere from twenty-five to fifty
cents to dispose of a dog
after it had been been killed, but ho
jokingly admitted that "sometimes”
tho dead animals were shipped out of
town on the If. & 0. freight trains.
"Then there are the cartridges,” said
tho chief. "I have to buy them, and
they use a good many.” "Is that be
cause the dogs are hard to kill or the
policemen are bad shots?” asked a
Committeeman. "Well,” said the Chief,
"I suspect its because the dogs are
hard to kill.” “Yes,” said Superinten
dent Maloney; "I know of one who
stood nine bullets, and then we had to
kill him with a broom-stick.” After a
good deal more talk, during which
considerable opposition was made to the
changing of the ordiuance during a
Chief’s term of office, after the law bad
been in effect so many years, the
pending resolution was laid on the table.
Tho police bills, aggregating 8181,35.
were then ordered paid. The report
for April showed 130 arrests, 81,213.40
assossed as flues and costs, and 8872,10
of this sum paid. Tho patrol answered
65 calls, hauled 92 people, and traveled
82 miles.
Thou another Important matter was
reached, brought up through the road
iug of a communication from Mrs.
Louisa Duseh, a widow, who com
plained that Officer Jacob Watson
would not pay a matter of 843 of rent
due her. lie had owed S53 last fall, and
promised to pay S10 per mouth. lie
made ooe payment, and then stopped.
Several members of the Committee said
they had been approached about this
matter, and other debts of the same of
ficer, and Mr. Warnekesaid be had also
been requested to briug up the matter
of a debt owed by Officer Conrad. The
Chief was called in, and said ho had
spoken *o Officer Conrad about the mat
ter, and he had first said he didn’t
know he owed this particular
debt, later that he would attend to it.
and finally he said the debtor might go to
a warm cilm&te. Messrs. Robinson and
Irwin wore iu favor of making non-pay
ment of honest debts a sufficient reason
for dismissing officers from tho force.
Mr. Richards didn’t bolieve In mak
ing a collecting agency out of the Com
mittee, and gave reasons for his belief.
Mr. Irwin was surprised at some of the
things Mr. Richards had said, but Mr.
Richards didn’t see anything surprising
in his statements. After a I^ng dis
cussion a resolution to make refusal or
failure to pay debts sufficient reason for
dismissal was adopted, and the Chief
was instructed to notify Officers Wat
son and Conrad.
City prison bills amounting to 8157.64
were theu ordered paid, and tho Super
intendent was instructed to take the
the u&turai gas out of tho prison at
ouce.
FI HE DEPARTMENT COMMITTEE
Decides to Repair the Old t lgtlaut Fire
Euglue.
The Council Committee ©n Fire De
partment held a meeting last night.
Present, Messrs. Robertson, Dobbins,
Irwin, Dinger, Milligan, Filau, Otto
and Horstman. Representatives of dif
ferent local firms were present to look
after their interests. A motion was
passed to go into executive session, and
(^|1 but members of tbo Committee were
excluded from the room.
Considerable time was spent in an in
formal discussion regarding the advisa
bility of purchasing a new apparatus
to replace the Vigilant engine. Then
the clerk read the bids for repairing
the old engine. They were as follow*:
Spears & Riddle, $773.50; Wm. Cox & Co.
SGGO; Ch&s. M. Oliver $020. The bid of
tbe first named firm was the only one
which specified in detail the uecessary
improvements and changes to be made.
Mr. Oliver’s bid provided that tbe en
gine be subject to the approval of the
Chief aud tbe committee after repairs
are made. Members of tha committee
expressed some surprise at tbe moderate
charges In the bids, tbeopinion prevail
ing that it would require about $1,000
to make the repairs.
The proposition of the Ahrens eugine
representative was read, and then came
a discussion as to which was the wiser
policy—to repair the old engine or pur
chase a new one. The latter view was
the popular one, considering the pres
ent condition of the city finances. Up
on motion of Mr. Dobbins, the bid of
Mr. Oliver was accepted by a unanl
rno us vote.
