The Pennsylvania railroad company have
cut down their freight trains te meet the
demands of the weather. Ne mere does
an engine eastward have thirty-six cars.
Despite the nearness te Christmas, mar

Misses Nannie Beckius and Mary Wil Wil
eon, of the Mountain seminary, Hunting
don, Pa., arc home for the holidays.
The ministers of the Protestant churches
of Columbia, at their regular weekly
meeting,' held yesterday morning in the
parsonage of the Reformed church, decided
upon a pregramme of exercises for the
week of prayer te be held in the early part
of January the first week of the month,
we are informed.

only sixteen mcu inline. Corporal L. K.
Fondersmith was acting first sergeant.
The Philadelphia & Reading railroad
company have adopted special passsengcr
excursion rates for Christmas and the hol
iday week. The main line and all its
branches are included. The rates arc just
about the same as these decided upon by
the Pennsylvania railroad company.
The telephone people are new ready te
go ahead that is, just as seen as the
weather will permit it. The poles, which
through some cause or ether have been
detained for a week or mure, arrived hcie
yesterday and wcie at once unleaded.
The "arms" have been here for some
time, but the wire which is being
furnished from Massachusetts, has net
yet arrived. This makes but lit
tle diifcrcncc, however, as it can be
stretched at any time and will net causa
auy detention even if itdoesnet reach here
for a couple of days. A force of men weie
here te go te work in erecting poles this
morning, but en account of the snow storm
it was decided te put the work oil' until
the weather becomes mere pleasant or at
least adaptable te the work. Mr. A. I.
Reese says that operations in the erection
of the telephone would commence just as
seen as the weather would permit.
The question just new with most people
is: " Is this Veiiner's snow?" Yesterday
afternoon at about 1:10 o'clock the feathery
Hakes began falling, and up te this writing
they have ever since continued in their
downward course. A3 a result the ground
is new covered with snow te the depth of
seven or eight inches, and it is still falling.
Hew long it will keep up cannot be safely
guessed at, but the appearance of things
overhead would warrant one in saying
"for the balance of the day at any rate."
The fortunate possessors of horses and
iilcighs weie out in force this morning,
and the sleighs appeared te run very
easily. We may have an old-fashioned
snowy Christmas and Santa Clans may
again rig up his reindeer and with a sleigh
full of toys and jingling bells, make mar
velous time ever the house tops. At 12
in. it was still snowing.

A Well-Known Railroad Man Almest In
stantly Killed at Jehn It. Illtner'x
Marrow Escape el' "William ISItner.
( This morning between 7 and 8 o'clock
Mehn B. Itccsc, who lesided at the south
west corner of Prince and Walnut streets,
was almost instantly killed at a ware
house belonging te Jehn li. I.itner and
situated in tlie rear of 1H2 North Queen
street. Fer about ten years Mr J'eese
has been employed by Mr. Bitner as a
conductor ou his freight cars which run
between this city and Philadelphia. lie
came home this morning from the latter
city. At thc time stated above three cars
which he had in charge were being
shipped ou the siding of the
warehouse by engine Xe. 82-1.
About eight feet from the end
of this siding and in a direct line with the
track is an old wooden shed, which is used
for storing away weed, !cc. On the track
at the cud were eight railroad ties, which
are used te prevent thc cars from run
ning oft' the end of the siding. Mr. Beese
and William II. Bitner, a seu of Jehn B.
Bitner, were ou the platform of the last
car when the signal was given te
tack, thc former having charge of
the brake. Thc train was backed with
such great force that the car en which
the men were ran oil' thc cud of the sid
ing, jumped ever thcpicccs of timber and
went crashing into the old shed. Yeung
Bitner saw the danger, and went into the
deer of the car saving his life. Mr.
Reese thought there was no danger and
remained at his brake, which he kept ap
plying. He was crushed between the car
and the timber of thc shed and died in a
few minutes. He was carried into the
house occupied by Jeseph Bacr as a res
taurant. Afterwards his body was re
moved te his late home.
It was said by some that the cause of
thc accident was thc failure of thc brakes
te work, owing te the snowy condition of
the track. Reese always kept his brakes in
excellent condition. Many-think that thc
accident was the cause of fast running,
and they allege that the train was being
backed at a rate of speed which was un
The deceased man was between .i and
40 years of age. He was married and
leaves a wife aud three children, lie has
always been a sober industrious man who
enjoyed the confidence of hjs employer
and had a great many friends."
Corener Mishlcr impaneled a jury, con
sisting of Cap. Jehn A. Schuh, Jacob
-Stauffcr, Samson Rcsh, Jehn Creamer,
Jeremiah B. Snyder aud
Dr. Cem p ten made an examination of the
body and found that one arm was broken
aud there was a black mark about thc ab
domen. The injuries causing his death
This afternoon the conductor, engineer
firemen and brakemen of the train which
shifted the cars were examined by the cor
oner's jury. They testified that thc cars
were net run in with mere force than
usual. "When thc train started te back
thc lait of thc three cars was about thc
length of a car above thc switch, and
when thc engine stepped it was still above
the switch. '"
After the train had stepped Mr. Reese
still beckoned the engineer te come back
farther; when the railroad men heard
that Reese was hurt they drew the cars
away as quickly as possielo ; owing te the
slippery condition of the track this morn
ing it was very difficult, for a brake te
held the cars ; if they would slide they
would he apt te run oil. Mr. Reese always
told thc raihead men te get oft that he
would take charge of his cars ; when they
reached -Lancaster, they asked him if the
s'.ding would held the cars, and he said i I
would ; he said this should give the cars a
"shot" when they arrived here. Win.
Bitner, who was en the train with Reese,
testified that he get en te yet the manifest
from Reese, he told Reese that the cars were
going tee last and he intended te get oil.
us there might he an accident ; Reese told
him net te de se ; the witness went into
the car deer before it struck the shed ;
Reese had his break en tightlyand seemed
te he very coei. Anether witness saw
Reese put en the brakes and the wheels
were sliding ; he ran te the shed when the
car struck it, thinking both men were
killed. Anether witness stated that the
cars came in with great force this morn
ing. The jury adjourned until te-morrow
morning at 10 o'clock.
