THE HENDERSON GOLD LEAF THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 1905.
The Gold Leaf, THURSDAY, .TUNE 15, 1W).". MANY INJURED IN TROLLEY CRASHES Bad Collisions at Princeton, N. J., and Pottstown, Pa. M18HAPS WERE MUCH ALIKE Trenton, N. J.,June 12 Sixteen per sons were Injured In a head-on col lision on the Trenton, LawrenceYille and Princeton Railroad, better known as the Johnstown trolley line. Two of the passengers, Lang Johnson, of this city, and Thomas McCue.of Wash ington. D. C. were the only ones ser iously Injured. McCue had a leg broken, but Johnson's condition 13 more serious. He Is at Mercy Hos pital and his recovery Is doubtful. The accident Is thought to have been caused by one of the cars ignoring a red light. Travel on the road was un usually heavy, owing to the Princeton Yale base ball game. Among the others Injured were Ray Conover. Princeton, cut about the face. Charles Carey, Stroudsburg, Princeton student, cut about the body. Howard Davis, New York, left leg sprained. J. S. M' Oovern, Philadelphia, leg and head cut. Johnson, McCue, Conover and Carey are at the Mercy Hospital, this city. All the others have gone to their homes. O. Kent, motorman of one of the cars, as soon as the collision occured, extricated himself from the wreckage and ran through the fields. It Is al leged he is responsible for running past the red light. The smash occured about a mile and a half east of Lawrenceville, where a sharp curve marks the approach to the Five-Miles'' wood. The ends of both of the oars were crushed Into kindling wood and twisted iron, while the pas sengers were hurled in all directions. That a dozen or more of them were not killed outright seems to be nothing less than a miracle. TWELVE HURT IN SECOND CRASH Pottstown Also Has a Base Ball Game Trolley Disaster. Pottstown, Pa., June 12. Twelve persons were Injured in a collision or, the Pottstown & Reading Trolley line in the eastern limits of this plate. Both cars were coining to town loaded with passengers from the base ball game on the East End grounds. The first car was slowing down at Rowland street to det off some passengers, and another one. in charge of Daniel Arndt a green motorman was coming down the hill to the East ::nd at a rapid clio. Realizing the dan; "r, Arndt tried 10 stop his car, but he li st his nerve, and. Instead of reducing t".ie speed, he put on the full current. His car crashed Into the one about coming to a stand still at the crossing with fearful force, hurling the people on the crowded platforms into the street and piling those inside the closed cars os each other. Women screamed and fainted and the blood from some of the injured bespattered their clothing. Ambu lances were summoned, and the most seriously injured were taken to the Pottstown hospital. The injured: Wilson Stetler. two ribs fractured; William Dunn, fracture of right les: Irwin XHmau. ear badly cut; John Yerger. ! g crushed and after ward umputated; Henry Hartline, head badly cut; Mrs. Jeremiah Gilbert, In ternal Injuries; George Harp, bruised leg; Elmer Evans, sprained wrist and dhow; Joe Lewis, nose broken and face crushed: Franklin Beam, broken hand; Edward Moser, sprained should ers; Harold M.

All hope that King Oscar or Crown Prince Gustave will yield to the request of the Norwe gian storthing to place a prince of the house of llernadotte on the throne of Norway has now disappeared, accord ing to a high authority. The Danish royal family has also set the stamp of disapproval on the acceptance or the throne by a Danish prince. It is understood that arrangements are actually I cing made for a national convention in Norway, and this, it is believed, will inevitably result in the declaration of a republic.
