Tragic Fate of a Circus Performer
The Breaking or Traprse I'rvae
Heads WtliUin O'Hara of the
ft'repagh Show Down
A shocking tragic fate overtook Wil
liam O'Mara, one of the Hanlon volters
performers of . the Forepaugh shows
at Clinton yesterday morning. The Age
describes it as follows:
A tragic scene was enacted iz Adam
Forepaugh's shows at 3;35 yesterday
afternooa, but fortusately the six or seven
thousand people present did not fully
realize the awful traeedy until the clo-e
of the afteraoon performance. The world
renowned Hanlon volters bad made tbeir
appearance for their great trapize per
formance. They had taken their posi
tions on the b-irs and one or two acts had
been given. William O'Mara was seated
on the centre bar, some distance above
the other two men, preparing for his dar
ing feat, which consisted in dropping and
catching hold of one of the other men as
he went down. O'Mara had wiped the
prespiralion from his brow and hands
and was about to make his jump wnen
wi'hout a moment's warning the crane
holding the traptzj bar broke, letting the
unfortunate mtn down to the ground: a
distance of about 30 feet. Several at
tendants rushed inf the ring and carried
the injured man into the dressing room,
the trapeze performance was discon
tinued and the other features of the show
went on, the general opinion being among
those in the vast audience that the man
was perhaps only stunned, ss tbe earth
was soft at the place where he fell. Drs.
McAffee and Burbank were called to the
dressing room where tbey found the man
unconscious and af terone or two gasps he
expired. Examination revealed "the fact
that his neck was broken.
Coroner Meyers was aotified and sum
moning a jury consisting of George
Brenizer. Peter Malz;n and G. J. Saater,
they visited the circus grounds and
viewed the remains. At the inquest,
several witnesses of the affair were ex.
amined. The testimony of all went to
show that O'Mara's death was aecidental,
and no blame whatever was attached to
the management of the show or their em
ployes, and the verdict of the coroner's
jurv was rendered accordingly.
The apparatus used in this trapeae ex
hibition was the property of the Hanlon
volters; was under their own care and
inspected by them each day before the
performances were given. The three
men were engaged with their apparatus
at a salary of $300 per week, and had
given two exhibitions daily since last
Tlie Moline Cane.
Ths circuit court room ws crowded
yesterday afternoon with spectators and
witnesses in attendance upon the cases of
the Moline parlies who are charged with
gambling. State's Attorney Sturgeon is
assisted by William Jackson and the de
fendants are represented by McEniry &
McEairy, J.T. Kenworthy, Maj. Beards
ley and William Meeae. A motion was
entered by the defendants to quash the
capias, on the grouad ttat they did not
set forth tbe crime for which defendants
were arrested, acd that the recard showed
that they were issued from the probate
court returnable to the July term of that
court, whereas tbe record should show
that the order was mide by the judge in
vacation of the law term of tb.9 county
court. Judge Adams overruled tbe mos
tioa howeyer. and the defendants this
morning gave bail for their appearance
for trial, wbieb will come up tomorrow
morning at 9 o'clock.
