TWO INJURED, ONE FATALLY

When Passenger Coach Falls Upon Them in Syracuse
Lyons, Feb. 12 - William LOVELESS, of Elmer street, and John KOWALCZUK, of Franklin street, this village, were seriously and the latter probably fatally injured in Syracuse yesterday afternoon. Both men were employed on the crane train on the New York Central and had been working in East Syracuse most of the winter. The accident happened in the DeWitt car shops, when jacks holding a car under which they were working, gave way.
LOVELESS and KOWALCZUK started to jack up a railway passenger coach late in the afternoon. They were doing repair work on the car when, without warning, the jacks slipped and the heavy car crashed down on them. They were pinioned helpless beneath it until fellow workmen, hearing their cries, rushed to their aid and jacked the car so that they could be rescued. It was seen that the two men were seriously injured and they were taken to a Syracuse hospital.
KOWALCZUK is suffering from a compound fracture of the spine. Physicians stated last night that recovery was not expected, although he may linger for days and possibly weeks. Both bones of LOVELESS' left leg were broken just above the ankle and his side was lacerated. It is not thought that he is hurt internally and his recovery is expected.
Both men are married and have families. LOVELESS has three children and KOWALCZUK has two.

DYNAMITE FOUND IN COAL

Power Company Officials Think It Got There Accidentally
Part of a stick of dynamite was found in the coal in the bunkers of power station No. 3 of the Rochester railway and Light Company yesterday, but little importance is attached to the matter by the officials of the company, who feel that the explosive came there accidentally. Superintendent Thomas H. YAWGER said that no wire was attached to the dynamite and that it probably was a charge that had missed fire and had been shoveled up with the coal.
"I don't believe the powder would cause any harm if it got into the furnace," said Mr. YAWGER. "It probably would burn away. We do not know whether it is active or not, but it has been sent to competent persons for examination. The wrapping was considerably worn and the powder may have lost much of its strength."
Mr. YAWGER was asked if dynamite was often found in coal. He replied that he had not known of such an incident before. He was of the opinion, however, that a person with mischievous intent would have taken more pains to carry out a harmful project.

IN MEMORIAM

PHELPS - The death of Mrs. Sarah Jane PHELPS, Monday, February 11th, at the home of her son, Judson Lorenzo PHELPS, at No. 70 Bellevue drive, removes from our midst, a life of rare beauty and excellence. She was born September 14, 1829, in Sullivan, Madison county, New York, having, after death, reached her 89th year. She was the daughter of Ashley and Mary (WEBSTER) BROOKS, and on her maternal side was a direct descendant of Governor John WEBSTER, of Connecticut, who in 1636 was one of the founders of the colony of Connecticut and a settler of the city of Hartford. Lieutenant Robert WEBSTER, a son of Governor WEBSTER, married Savannah TREAT, daughter of Richard TREAT, Esq., of Wethersfield, Conn., and a sister of Hon. Robert TREAT, of the eighth governor of Connecticut. William WEBSTER, a son of Lieutenant Robert WEBSTER, married Sarah NICHOLS, daughter of William NICHOLS, of the fine of Cyprian NICHOLS, of Hartford, and thus the blood of these historic families. WEBSTER, TREAT, NICHOLS, in the first three generations in America, flowed in her veins. Ensign William WEBSTER'S son, Samuel, married Elizabeth CASE, and their son, Timothy, of Madison, Conn., and Livingston Manor, Columbia county, N. Y., married Sarah ALLEN, and they were the parents of Mary (WEBSTER) BROOKS, mother of Mrs. PHELPS, the latter being in the seventh generation from Governor John WEBSTER. October 5, 1848, she married Joshua Lorenzo PHELPS, at Kelloggsville, Cayuga county, N. Y. He died in Auburn, N. Y. Three children survive her George Warren PHELPS, of New York city, Judson Lorenzo PHELPS and Vincent Ashley PHELPS, of this city. Funeral services were conducted at the residence by Rev. Melville R. WEBSTER, D. D., associate pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church of this city, and interment was made in Mount Hope cemetery, "In hope of the resurrection of the just."
