The big "stiff leg" derrick used for
hoisting building material to the upper
floors of the new Delaware and Atlantic
Telephone and Telegraph Company's
building at Sixth and Shipley streets
collapsed without warning yesterday

considered un unusually strong one.
During the afternoon stones weighing
nearly a ton had been hoisted from the
street to the third floor and swung into
position. At the time of the accident the :
derrick was standing idle, and there was
nothing to explain its sudden collapse.
In its full almost the entire centre panel;
of tlie building was knocked out to a I
