1 KILLED. 2 INJURED
IN ftUTO WRECK
Continued I'roci Klrxt Pngf,
tried to round the curve and that he
saw a pole immediately in front of him.
He then lost consciousness and the next
thing he remembered was he was drag
ging himself out from beneath the ear.
The injured men were taken to the Har
ritfburg Hospital in an automobile
which happened along. The car in which
the trio were riding is a total wreck.
Erbe and Chambers, botn machinists,
left Steelton a short time ago to work
in Midland, Pa. Both wanted to return
to Steelton to sec the Home Talent
Minstrel show held there last week and
when Chamber's brother-in-law, -George
Young, a real estate agent of Pitts
burgh, motored to Steelton, liotli men
accompanied him. Chambers borrowed
his brother-iu-law'g car for the trip
last night. Ho and Erbe nad intended
to return to Midland on 'Monday.
Punctured Liver Cause of Death
When told of the death of Erbe, Cor
oner Eckinger had the body removed
from the hospital to the office of Knod
erer, in Steelton, where Dr. R L. Per
kins, coroner's physician, and Dr. J. E.
Dtikinson, of Harrisburg, performed a
post-mortem examination this morning.
With the exception of slight laceration
on his left leg, there was not a mark
on Elbe's body. The examination
showed the cause of death to have been
a puncture of the li-ver, resulting from
•his being thrown from the car.
Chambers was not told of the death
of hi* chum until noon when Coroner
Eckinger requested a statement. Cham
bers had repeatedly asked the hospit.il
authorities about the condition of
Elbe, but he was kept in ignorance
until the Coroner arrived. Chambers
was shocked at the, news of Erbe's
death, and turning to the Coroner said
he would tell all about the affair.
Chambers Takes the Blame
The Coroner declared Chambers
took the blame on himself, saying he
was going at a high rate of speed and
forgot the dangerous curve until it was
too late to keep the machine on the
road. Chambers was not a licensed
driver, according to the Coroner. The
trio ha<l been to Dauphin and were re
turning, the start from Hteelton having
been made about 11 o'clock last night.
Coroner Eckinger will hold an in
quest into the death of Erbe when the
two injured men are able to appear.
Erbe reaided with his mother, Mrs.
Grace Erbe, in Steelton, until recently
when he left for Mid'land. Both he and
Chambers formerly were machinists for
the Pennsylvania Steel Company.
Carlson is employed in the bridge
md construction department of the
Pennsylvania steel works.
This was the second accident within
a week at the dangerous curve at what
is known as the "Turn of the Nar
rows." The road makes a sharp turn
toward the river, which at night cannot
be distinguished clearly by an autoist
who is unfamiliar with it.
The crash of the machine, as it went
through' the fence into the vacant lot
at the left side of the road, was heard
by Norman Hcckert and John Turns,
of Heckton. who conveyed the injured
men to the hospital in an automobile.

These are the fiwt evidenees of po

cause of the resignation yesterday of
the cabinet..on the ground that it did
not have the unanimous support of the
constitutional parties of the country in

nor yet announced whether the resigna

Why tbo Ministers Resigned
The members of the Cabinet found
it impossible to bridge the differences
separating tliem from the followers of
Signor Giolitti. They handed in their
resignations for the reason that they
preferred to follow this course rather
than a,p[ ear before Parliament when it
meets May 20 and give the world an
exhibition oS internal division in Italy,
which probably would be accompanied
by recriminations anil accusations. To
do so would be most undignified for
Italy. The action of the Cabinet leaves
King Victor Emmanuel free to choose
the men he considers 'best adapted to
guide Italy in the present grave situa
Both Signors Marcora and Manfredi
have been mentioned as possible Pre
