John Buttcrman, Jr., Crushed Be
neath It In the E. & W. V. R.
R. Yard Yesterday.
John Butterman, Jr., of 1007 Paul
street, Petersburg, was killed yesterday
afternoon by being struck by a falling
derrick at the Urle and Wyoming Val
ley railroad yards nt Dunmore:
Butterman, who was the son of Al
derman John Butterman, of Petert--burg,
was doing his first day's work
as n laborer In the employ of the Mc
Cllntock Marshall Construction com
pany, which is building several new
shops in tho yard for the Krle com
pany. A large derrick was erected near
the railroad tracks, and one of the
ropes which held this In place extended
across tho tracks.
The men employed on the job were
busy at work, about 2 o'clock, when
one of the Erie and Wyoming enslnes
came down the track, and passing over
the rope severed it. The instant the
cable was cut there was a terrific
crash, as the big derrick pole fell to
tho ground. Butterman, who was
working directly under It, was struck
full in the head by the huge timber,
and with a loud cry was prostrated be
neath the derrick.
James Kearney, John Mover, Michael
O'Hara, James Mulherin and John
O'Donnell, who were working nearby,
ran to his assistance and extricated
him from his position. A physician was
summoned, but before he arrived But
terman was dead, his skull having sus
tained a compound fracture. Coroner
Roberts was notified, and the remains
were removed to the deceased's late
Butterman Is survived by his wife, n
two-year-old daughter, Loretta, and
his father, two brothers, Frank and
Michael J., and three sisters, Kather
Ine, Elizabeth and Mamie.
He was thirty-one years of age, and
lived in this city throughout his entire
life. For many years he was employed
by J. D. Williams & Bio., and until re
cently was one of the employes of M.
J. Kelly. The date of the funeral has
not yet been decided upon.

"I believe in the country's custom of re-electing a successful
president. Mr. McKinley's administration hns been such and hence I
favor his re-election. There cannot now be any doubt of his qualifica

and firmness nnd experience in the affairs of the government.
"I am in fnvor of the re-election of President McKinley because

Thomas King, Peter McKetrlck, Geo.

At 9.30 o'clock yesterday morning .1

There was a loud report, a fierce blaze
nnd every one of the four laborers was
more or less Injured. King, whose in

mediately taken to the Lackawanna

"for giving us such loyal Christian men
and women, and I take great pride in
saying that, as far as I have been able
to learn, they all belonged to the synod
of Pennsylvania."
Continuing, he salcl: "The present
persecutions In China are slight com
pared with the persecutions which
Christians have endured in former
nges. AH attempts to overthrow Chris
tianity have always failed and always
will fall, because Christianity Is of God
and cannot bo overthrown."
A brief address was also made by
Judge Alfred Hand, who expressed the
belief that tho martyrdom nt these
noble men and women in China would
inspire Christians In all parts of the
world with n truer and a better Chris

ISSUE OF 9100,000.
Will Introduce an Ordinance Pro
viding for a Specinl Election to Sc
our e Taxpayer's Consent There
Are Now About $83,000 of Out
standing Judgments Which Are
Drawing Six Per cent. Interest,
Whereas Bonds Could Be Floated
nt Probably Three and a Half.
Select Councilman John E. Roche, of
tho Seventh ward, will Introduce In se
lect council tonight nn ordinance pro
viding for a special election for the
purpose of submitting to the vote of
the taxpayers of the city n proposal to
Issue bonds In the sum of $100,000 for
tho purpose of paying off all Judg
ments and all other adjudicated claims
now outstanding against the city.
The issuance of $100,000 worth of
bonds for such a purpose, while being
technically an Increase of the city's In
debtedness, Is not In reality an in
crease, inasmuch as it would bo mere
ly the substitution of one debt for an
other. Nevertheless, as It Is a tech
nical Increase, it cannot bo done with
out the consent of a majority of the
taxpayers of the city.
The necessity of having such an Issue
of bonds has long been apparent to
those who have nny knowledge of
municipal nffalrs. There are now out
standing against tho city some $S.1,000
worth of judgments and other adjudi
cated claims. By the latter are meant
damnge claims which councils have
authorized the settlement of.
Each and every one of these Judg
ments and claims bears Interest at the
rate of six per cent, per annum until
paid. Each year there is appropriated
for the purpose of paying them a sum
averaging about SIU.OOO, known as the
judgments and incidentals appropria
tion. This appropriation is generally
diverted to other purposes and very
little of It Is ever used In paying off
Now, municipal bonds generally bear
Interest at the rate of three and a half
or four per cent., so that the issuance
of $100,000 worth of these bonds to pay
off the judgments Is purely and simply
a business proposition, which means
the saving of two per cent, interest an
nually on that amount.
Mr. Roche believes that there can be
no possible objection to the proposition,
cither on the part of councilmen or tax
payers, and hopes to see the ordinance
speedily passed and the Issuance of the
bonds authorized by the voters.
Tho $100,000 will not quite wipe out
the total amount of judgments with
their accrued interest, but it Is ex
pected that if a liberal appropriation is
made for judgments nnd Incidentals
next year that this can be done.
The question of providing for such
an Issue of bonds has been discussed In
and around city hall for the past year,
but Mr. Roche is the first one to take
any active step in the matter.
