Tho scene of tho accident is midway

made of iron, with stone foundations,
and was not protected by guard rails.
South of tho tiestlo is an incline down
which tho car ran on tho trestlo for
about 10 feet, the trucks left the rails.
The car continued on tho tlea about 76
feet, when it went off the trestle and
dropped into tho pond below, overturn

Qunrtrr of a Criitilty Acn.
Washington, Aug. 0. An interest
ing historical fact dating hack to 1873,
has como to light, in which Admiral
Dewoy was tho central flguro. Dowey,
then a commander, was in command
of tho United States ship Narragansett,
on tho Asiatic station, having taken
charge of tho vessel March 1, 1873.
The vossol was on surveying duty when
tho Virgini.iH ttoublu was precipitated
and a war with Spain seemed itiiml
nont. Commander Dewoy wrote to tho
navy dopartmont requesting that in
case of war ho should bo assigned to
the duty of capturing Manila. Tho
poacoful sottlemont of the controversy
with Spain avoidod tho nocessity of
hostilo demonstration, but tho intor
osting fact is that tho doughty officer
had his oyo on Manila over a quarter
of a century ago. A soaioh will ho
made for tho letter in tho files of tho
navy departmoiit and if found it is ox
pected an effort will ho niado by tho
citizens cominitteo to havo it repro
