Richards Joseph T. Richards, engineer who helped plan the Pennsyl vania railroad tunnels under the Hudson river and the Phil adelphia subway system, died at Cape May, N. J., on Wednes day, May 17. He was 88 years old. Mr. Richards was chief engineer of maintenance for the Pennsylvania from 1893 to 1915, when he retired, after forty-six years with the rail road. Among the major accomp lishments of Mr. Richards en gineering career were the re pair of damage resulting to the railroad in the blizzard of 1888 and replacement of bridges af ter the Johnstown flood in 1889. He was chairman of the committee which planned the New York and Washington terminals. Joseph T. Richards was born February 12, 1845 at the Rich ards homestead, near Porters Bridge, west of Rising Sun, Cecil county, the eighth in de scent from Dr. Joseph Richards a member of the Society of Friends who came from Oxford county, England, to settle near Chester, Pa., about 1682. His father, Isaac Richards, was a farmer and surveyor. After an education at West Nottingham Academy, near his father’s farm, Mr. Richards en tered the engineering profes sion, and in 1869 was a rod man and transitman on the Pennsylvania railroad during the construction of shops at Altoona, Pa. He served in var ious capacities for the railroad until 1874, as supervisor of a division and as chief engineer in locating and building minor branch lines in Maryland. After the disastrous John ston flood of June, 1889, Mr. Richards made a record in re constructing the Montgomery bridge over the Susquehanna river on the line of the Phila delphia and Erie Railroad. He set up a span 1,000 feet long, while the river was still raging, twenty-four to twenty seven feet deep, in three and a half days. Another of his more notable feats was to move away an old railroad bridge, weighing 1,400 tons, over the Schuylkill river at Philadelphia and install a new one in two minutes twenty-eight seconds. Only thirteen minutes elapsed between the passage of the last train over the old structure and the first train over the, new. In 1873 Mr. Richards mar ried Martha Eliazbeth Ernest, of Chestertown, Kent county, i Md., and they had three child ren, Mrs. Norman E. Essig, of Philadelphia; Joseph E. Rich ards and Amy Richards.
