Jones, master mechanic for he Delaware and Hudson, met with a »ery r serious accident Monday shortly ifter twelve o'clock, and which re- sulted in the logs of his right foot and the breaking of the bone in his left ,rm just below the shoulder, besides giving hiim a severe shaking up. n Jones was on his way to his home on the Point, going by way of •he railroad trestle, as was his cus- om. As he neared the trestle engine (No. 92, in charge of engineer Hewitt, came off the itjmstle to go into the ard. Mr. Jones .wials walking on the nain track, and thought that the en- line was coming on the same track. At -thiat point tlhere are several switch- es and side tracks, and fihinlkiins that was ge-ttinsg out of the way of the engine, he stepped on one of the ks directly in front of the engine. •Beftore anything could be done ito ohecik the speed of the train tlhe pilot of the engine struck him land threw (him al- most clear of the (track, the only por- tion of his body left on the rail ibeimg his right foot, aver, which the wheels of the engine passed. The injured 1 man was instantly pick- id ojp by the ^nigineer, .firemen and the men in the 'yard, and taken to the sta- tion. Dm. Silver land Parnsworth, ho werp called, very quicMy respond- ed, and did all they could to reEeve his suffering, penddng the removal to his home. When 'the injured man was ta'ken to his home he was put under the in- fluence of ether, and the foot was amputated just (above the ankle joint. Mr. Jones ii a very healthy iman, and has always 'been of 'the most tempetrate habits, and no compiUciatiJonis am ex- peteted. He retained icionfcctoueness until put under the influ&nice of the diriug, of which it respired nine ounces to produce unconsciausness. Tuesday niglht doctors in attend'ance reported that Mr. Jones wias resting quietly, and had no fever at all. His mkny friendls in this city and all along the line of the D. & iH. join in the ish that he will soon recover from the effects of tthe sad accident. That the accident did ndt msult in the> loss of Mr. Jones's life is due principally to the flaot that the regular iltcli engine or 'ibobbie\ is in the repair shop, and No. 92 wias being used inbtead. On the 'Iboibby\ there is no pilot, and had Mr. Jiones been struck by that engine he would have been thrown under the wheels instead of to one side, as was the case. Crew of Steamer < hat*»au«a.v AH- When tJhe steamer Chlateaugay came into [K)it Monday morning it. was seen that, a new fonce of deck hands were on the boat, as the old hands were all in the hospital at Burslington as 'a resoiLt of an accident on Sunday niaht. The Chateau'gay laid over Saturday might and Sunday at her wharf in Buo/lin/gton, and when the steward went to call the men Monday morn- ing he r:!ould not arouse them. The sleeping quarters of the men are in the hold of the boat, and it was quick- ly discovered ithat the room was filled with coal gas. Aid was qiuUckly sum- moned, and the men were talken out on the deck in an effort to grouse them. The hospital ambulance was sent fo<r and the men Itaken there for treat- ment. .In the opinion of tihe doctors they will all recover, and soon ibe 'back at wank. Captain Baldwin collected enough men from the 'boats in Slhelburn Har- bor 'to make tup the crew, and the boat made her regular trip to this city. It seems that when the men retired £or the night on 'Sunday evening they filled the stove with fresh coal and left the front door oipen and the dam- per closed. During the nigtht the gas escaped into the room, and the men overcome by the 'gas are fortunate hat their care'lesisness did nott result n greater disaster to themselves. The following •members of the omw who e overcome are residents of this city: Peter Bridges, (first mate; Peter Provost, and Peter MoAloon, firemen; T>ouiis Seytmour, David Gamrant \and William Parker, deck hands.
