: ROCK ISLAND. ILL
Two fatal accidents occurred with
in a few minutes" lime of each other
last evening. Peter Garrity. a well
known farmer residing three miles
southeast of Milan, was fatally in
jured in a runaway accident on
Twelfth street, and Herman Johnson,
a switchman in the Uock Island's em
ploy, was instantly killed by being
run down by n string of ears near the
Fifth avenue depot.
Mr. Carrity came to the city yes
terday afternoon to transact busi
ness. ;( lie drove a spirited team of
black' hitrhed to a light w agon, lie

shortly after l o'clock, start ing alone.
Driving down Fourth aenue, some
where east of Twelfth street tlie
team'started to run. probably no one
will ever know why. At Twelfth
street the horses turned south and
dashed along at a furious pace.
Whether the driver had lost control
of them or not cannot be ascertained.
According to the "story of an eye
witness, the team was running at full
speed at Sixth avenue. Just north of
Seventh avenue H. CJtllerman, a ped
dler, was coming north with a load
drawn by a single horse. He was
near the middle of the street, or rath
er to the west side, ami it was neces
sary for Mr. Carrity to turn to the
east side to pass.

the injured man was taken, an exam

the skull was fractured over and back
of the eye on the left side, a portion
of the bone being driven in against
the brain. There was also a 'fracture
Miiuiing entirely around the skull to
the base of the brain. It was seen
that recovery was out of the ques

Herman Johnnon Step in Front of Mov

Herman Johnson met instant, and
horrible death about fi:-l(). The pre
cise manner in which he. got in front
of the train is a mystery that the evi
dence before the coroner could not
clear up. He had just finished his
day's work and was apparently cross
ing the tracks toward the south.
A switch engine was backing a
string of passenger coaches up from
the. west on the third track and
Johnson appears to have been on one
of the cars. At any rate, it. .seems
that he stepped from a car in front
f a string of freight cars that was
beiikg backed down from the east.
Xo one saw him fall, but Switch
man Pender, who was on the end car,
felt a jar as the wheels passed over
the body and signaled for the engin
eer to stop. The train was brought
to a standstill a few rods further on.
A number of those who were in the
vicinity quickly gathered and the life

trucks by which it had been dragged
Terribly Man glad.
JjOhnson was dead when extricated,
ifi. skull was crushed and his brains
w'ere scattered along the track, ltoth
legs were fractured and his left arm
was crushed. The remains were re
moved to Knox's undertaking rooms.
The crew in charge of the string of
cars that Johnson was caught by was
composed of David Einfeldt, foreman,
C. M. Williams, engineer and -J.. A.
Bender, switchman. - Under the cir
cumstances the accident appears to
have been unavoidable, the victim
having been responsible for his own
Deceased was 27 years of age and
single. He came here from Peoria
about the first of last November and
had been in the employ of the Uock
Island most of the time since. Lately
he had been working on the engine
that helps the trains out over the
hill back of Davenport. He had a
room in the Koester flats at Fifth av
enue and Thirty-first street. He for

lines in Peoria.

Ilivans. J. 15. Kckhart. V. J. Heverling
and F. H. "Warren. Members of the
crew in charge of the string of cars
that caused the death of the young
man told their stories, and the father,
who arrived on the morning train
from his home, testified. Some links
in the testimony being lacking, an
adjournment was taken till this even
ing, when the inquest will be finished
at the office of Justice Schriver.
The same jury was again sworn and
viewed the remains of Peter Carrity
and the circumstances attending the

also be probed this evening.
