Concerning; Bla Court.
, Accident as Taeoma.
Tacoma, Oct. 6. George G. Chandler,
general agent of the Northern Pacific
railroad' in this city, was killed in a
street car accident .tonight at 11:15
o'clock. Those injured in the same ac
James F. O'Brien, deputy county
clerk, right leg mangled; Ed. R. Hare,
left Bhoulder dislocated ; M. Sidney, a
real estate agent, hurt about the face ;
Mrs. M. Sidney, bruised and cut in sev
eral places ; Miss Bertha Laughton, ren
dered insensible and cut about the head ;
A. W. Latham, a bookkeeper, bruised. 4.
Mrs. William H. Upton of Portland
was slightly brnised and was taken to
the Fife hotel. No other Portland peo-'
pie were injured. Mr. Chandler's face
was mangled beyond j. recognition. So
completely was he disfigured that for
some minutes after the wreck his iden
tity was in doubt, and was only settled
by an examination bf his watch, on
which his name was engraved... The car
on which the accident occurred was No.
20, of the Old Town line. It was re
turning from the interstate fair, and
was crowded with people. Chandler,
O'Brien, Hare and a number of others
were standing on the front platform, be
hind Motorman. W. J. Muegroye. As
the wheels struck the east crossing of
North Second street the. axle of the
front truck . broke near the right wheel.
The car left the track, plunged along at
an acute angle to the right of the track
for a rod, and then fell on its left side.
Mr. Chandler, who was standing on the
steps, fell underneath, and the heavy
wood and iron work of the car struck
him full in the face, crushing out bis
life and leaving his head in a shapeless
O'Brien "went down in the struggling
mass of humanity, and the iron roof of
the car fastened down upon him, tear
ing the flesh and horribly mangling the
calf of his leg. The others were all in
jured either by falling from the plat
form or by being thrown violently
against one another and against the
breaking glass of the windows. Doctors
were summoned and every assistance
rendered the injured. Mr. Chandler's
body has been taken to the coroner's
morgue. Policemen have been stationed
about the wreck to guard it until the
coroner's inquest, which is to be held
Monday. It was an accident, pure and
simple, and proved a terrible ending of
the Bplendid celebration of the day and
evening in honor of the visit of Port
lrnd's mayor and a thousand citizens to
the interstate fair.
