SEPTEMBER 2. 1903. ^ricl~ONE^ClfNTT^ STORY OF TOE _ WRECK Witnesses Testify As to How the Clifton Avenue Ac cident Oocurred. A YICTIH’S SISTER ON THE STAND ♦ Gateman’s Account Both Fa vorable and Unfavorable to the Defendants. (Special to “The Jersey City New*.’’) NEWARK, September 2,1903.—Much testimony was given yesterday in the Es sex County Court of Oyer and Terminer as to the cause of #e awful trolley acci dent at Clifton avenue last February, in which nine gfhoqk children were killed. The most imjwrtant defendants ore: John D. Crimmins.f^A. J. Cassatt, Edward F. C. Young. Dr. Leslie D. Ward, E. B. Gaddis, David Y'oung and J. Roosevelt Shanley. Should the jury bring in a verdict of guilty of manslaugh ter eatyh defendant would be liable to a sentence of not more than ten years in the State prison and a fine of $1,000. Christopher Condron.the flagman at the Clifton avenue crossing, testified that he lowers and raises the safety gates 200 times a day, often three timeb in five min- 1 utes. On the morning of the accident there was snow on the trolley tracks, Condrou testified. “The snow was dry and erumbly-like, I had occasion to look at my own tracks and the trolley tracks. The trolley tracks were covered with this dry snow. Sev eral cars had been, over them when I first noticed them. I saw the cars slip ping as they came, down and called ! one of the conductor’s attention to it. That was about -six minutes to eight.” “Why did you call the conductor’s at tention to the tracks?” he was asked. ‘ “The curs didn’t come down as good as they ought to, and it needed salt and sand -on the tracks. I thought that sooner or later a car would go through 'the gates.” “What were you doing just before the accident ?” “Looking up and down. I left the gate down a little earlier than/ usual. A mo ment later I saw the car coming down. The motorman was working hard at his brake. I thought at first the car was stopped at the crosswalk; then all at once it went plumb right through the gate. “The engine was then very near. Then they struck. The front of the car was torn off and the'trucks slewed off the rails. People were running all around, some of them crippled. There was no dead there, but there was some further down the track.” r The witness was cross-examined for the defense by Mr. Lindabury. Condron said that he could not tell how far the alarm bell could be heard from the crossing. In answer to questions, he described the practice-of the conduc tor im-stopping the ear at the crossing, going ahead to see if the way was clear, and, if it was, signalling to the car. He had never known of a departure from this rule, he said. “Had you ever known of a car break ing through the gates before?” asked Mr. Lindabury. “Yes,” replied Condon, “a car coming from the High School broke through the gate on the opposite side of the crossing in December.” Policemen Thorne, Stucky and Wolf testified that they saw the trolley car slowly slide down the hill to the cross ing, break the gates and run against the Bernardsville express on the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad. Prof. George C. Sonn, a veteran teach er in the High School, next testified. / “I noticed the trolley tracks,” he said, "as I walked toward the scene of the ac cident. In some places the snow had been blown away, but between Orange street and the railroad tracks it was packed hard on the rails. B “I niape an examination of the rails of sand. On the north side iHpsinidcould have been seen, but there were no signs of it.” • * Prineipql Wayland E. Stearns, of the High School, testified that he arrived1 at the scene of the accident soon after it oc curred. He immediately made an examin ation of the trolley rails between the rail road -and Orange street covering about two-tliirds of the distance, starting from the railroad. He looked for sand partie nlarly;, but did not find any. Xhebdore Cordos, conductor of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western. The way to regain your health after sickness is to take Hoad’s Sarsaparilla —it tone* the whole system._ __ train, described how it hit the trolley car. William Wiener, an instructor in the High School, testified that Brady, the motorman of the trplley car, was always careful to keep the school chil dren out of his way ou the front plat form of his car, so that they should not interfere with his handling of the controller and the brake.. | Oscar Bareliffe, the engineer of the Lackawanna train who was hurt in the accident, told of the trip to Newark, as his conductor had before him. He had some difficulty with snow on the tracks on the morning of February 19, he said. 'Snow got on the brake shoes and pre vented friction as it always does in snow storms. “Before coming to the Clifton avenue crossing,” he said, in telling his story of the accident, “I had to pass signal eighty eight, and there it was necessary to a reduction in speed, so that the train was a little slower. As I got to the crossing I saw the car going toward the tracks, and by the looks of the children on the platform I could see that it wasn’t going to stop at the gates. I turned everything I could to stop the train, and threw on the emergency brake. This was about seventy-five or a hundred feet from the crossing. The car was then going at the rate of about three miles ,an hour. I saw the children and the motorman in the ^car when they were about two or three feet away from me. The man was leaning backward against one of the children.’i’ Cross-examined by Mr. Werts, the wit ness said he was not making up the time he was behind at Roseville, for the reason that there was a train ahead of him working the signals against him. “You’ve brought suit for $75,000 dam ages against the North Jersey Street Railway Company as a result of this ac cident, haven’t you?’1 asked Mr. Werts. “That comes out of the accident,” said the witness affirmatively. “Of course you’re not testifying here to help your suit,” said counsel. “No, sir,” said the witness, with a j smne. . w The witness was excused for the noon adjournment, and went back to bis home in Gladstone this afternoon. He still looks very shaky, and an attendant is with. His right arm is said to be para lyzed, and he has not yet regained his strength. Prosecutor Riker said just before the. beginning of the afternoon session that he expected to conclude the testimony of the State Sometime this afternoon, and it is believed that the trial will be concluded by the end of the week. Coun sel for the defense were not prepared to sa^ how long it would take them to pui in their case or how many witnesses they would call. When Edward G. Kempf had finished bis explanation of the map of the scene of the accident yesterday afternoon, the first of the relatives of victims of the catastrophe was called to the stand. She was Mrs. Minnie M. Horle, a sister of Ernestina Miller, and was in deep mourn inging. Mrs. Horle testified that Ernestina was her youngest sister and lived next door to her at No. 144 Fairmount avenue. “When did you first see your sister af ter the accident?” asked Prosecutor Rik er. ' “I never saw her after that,” she said, simply. “Did you see something belonging to her?” asked Mr. Riker gently. -/ “Her clothes and ear-rings. They were at the morgue.” The witness said that the body of her sister had been brought to her father’s house, and that she had attended the feneral there and the burial in Fairmount Cemetery. “We admit that Ernestina Miller was killed in the accident,” put in Mr. Einda bury at this point, and Mr.Riker changed his line of questioning. The witness said that her sister was fifteen years and ten months old, and was a pupil at the *High School. & There had been some confusion when Mr. Lindabury spoke, and Chief Justice Gummere here asked the stenographer if he had noted the admission on the part of the defence. He said that he had not. “It is admitted by the defence,” said the Chief Justice, '"that-Ernestina Mil ler was killed at the Clifton avenue crossing on the morning of the 19th of February, 1903. “And,” added Mr. Lindabury, “that she was riding as ^ passenger on a car of the North Jersey Street Railway Com pany, and that she, was killed by a col lision of that car with a train on the Lackawanna aRilroad.” James Kay, the letter-carrier, whose route, at the time of the accident, in cluded Clifton avenue, and who saw the trolley car as it crashed into the engine of the Bernardsville express, was next called. It appeared from his testimony in direct and cross-examination that he was somewhat in doubt as to the condi tion of the tracks as regards the snow upon them at the time of the accident. Kay began his story by telling how he reached Clifton avenue and how he hur ried-to cross the railroad, as the shanty alarm bell tfas ringing, indicating that a train was approaching thefEighth avenue crossing above. He had a paper to leave on the west side of Clifton avenue, and as he tossed it in the window, he turned just in time to see theaccident. “As I turned Sack,” he said, in re sponse to questions, “the gates were just going down, and I waited at the cross walk about thirty feet from the traces. As I stopped I saw the trolley car com ing along. My first impression was that it would hit the gate. Everything was ^ippery thnt day, and the car was full and moving rapidly. The motorman was working hard on the brake. The car was crowded and the front platform was full.” ( ^ What were the conditions that led you to think it might hit the gate?” asked Mr. Riser. "It had speed enough,” was the reply, “and it was awful slippery Everywhere. The tracks were/slushy and it was very cold that morning.” «_ “What do you mean by alush?” “Why, snow.” vMelted snoEr?” \. “No, hot melted. Hard snow. It was packed down.” “As I patched the cat,” the witness went' on, “I heard the engine whistle, blowing the alarm, It was about 100 feet away on the middle track Then the car hit the gate and went through it, over the first track—just the front part of the car. The engiue caught the front of the car and cut it right off. It threw the debris over where I was, some of it. “The trolley was going at a good rate when it hit the train. I can’t say just what the speed was, but it was going very lively. It was a long double car, the sort that was used there every morn ing.” The prosecutor asked what was the usual condition of the cars at that hour prior to the accident, and the defence objected. Objection was overruled and exception noted, and Kay went on to tell the jury that there were always passen-^ gers on the front of the High School cars at that hour. “The last two or three before nine o’clock," he said, “always had a load. There were always people standing up inside and out. On, both platforms out side, I mean.” Mr. Lindabury again objected to the testimony. The court decided to admit the question in controversy, but the pro secutor withdrew it. He then asked: “What condition have you noticed with respect to the front platforms?” “Jhey were always crowded like on thaWlay,” said the witness, “I had no ticed if for. about a year.” On cross-examination by former Gov ernor Werts, Kay was again asked about the snow on the tracks. In response td counsel’s questions he said, that he had meant to say that the snow was packed down in the space between the rails. The rails themselves, he said, were clear, so far as he had noticed in crossing over them. TODAY’S PROCEEDINGS. The crucial point, in the State’s case against President A. J. Cassatt of the Pennsylvania Railroad, John D. Crim mins and five other millionaires of the Executive Committee of the North Jer sey Strret Railway w’ho are at bar charged with manslaughter as a result of the fatal Newark collision, was reached today when Public Prosecutor Chandler D. Riker of Essex County in troduced testimony to show that the dan gerous conditions were permitted to ex ist with the full knowledge of the persons under indictment. The position of the Pdbiic Prosecutor, which was sustained -by the Grand Jury in returning the indictment* he asked for, is that the menace to life which existed at the Clifton avenue crossing was rec ognized; that- representatives of the op erating departments of the North Jersey and the Delaware and Lackawanna roads had a conference a bo A the matter; that a derailing switch was agreed upon as a device which would obviate all danger; that the device was actually purchased and delivered at the crossing, but owing to a disagreement between the roads was never installed and at last was sent aw’ay and finally that the dangerous conditions were permitted to continue through the winter when the posibility of accident at the crossing was, greatly increased by weather conditions, and as a logical con sequence of ibis neglect the accident re sulted. Today’s testimony was directed to ward clinching those points against the millionaire defendants, and unless much time is consumed in cross-examination, the State’s case will be completed by nightfall. From the line of corse-examination pursued by the counsel for the defense it can be seen that they will endeavor to establish that the accident was not the outcome of a lack of preventative measures, but of the motorinan’s excite ment. Their questions were intended to elicit replies Showing that the car had been stopped before it reached the cross ing gates and then suddenly started for ward under a renewed impulse, the inference being that the motorman in the excitement, confused by the cries of the children about him oa the platform, lost his head, and while working the brake hnndle with one hand, unknowing ly turned on the electric power With the other. The motorman has been sub poenaed as a witness, but his testimony is hardly likely to blear up ^anything, as his mind has been seriously affected by the injuries he received in the col lision. ■ . , . „ li.. i' r . - - 4} • - v. .■ ■ . .'V v >• -j-. * * ' A STORY BY t BROTHER FRANCIS IT IB TOLD FOB THE BENEFIT IT MAY BE TO OTHERS.

A New Zealand man claims (and there are many who agree with him) to have discovered a liquid by means of which volcanoes may be extinguished quickly whether active or threatening. Many diseases of the human body act in the same manner as volcanoes. Dyspepsia, Rheumatism, Kidney Dis orders, Female Diseases and m&ny others all begin with a slight rumble of pain and distress, and if not treated in time will burst forth in all their fury, causing all who are so afflicted the most intense suffering and making life a complete burden.
