DEATH OF DAVID HIGGINS.

State Of New Hampshire.

In Board Of Railroad Commissioners.

Concord, February, 1890.
David Higgins, a brakeman on the Cheshire Railroad, was killed near the Westmoreland station, on the 21st day of January, 1890, at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Walter C. Fassett, engineer of locomotive F. H. Kingsbury, testified that he was running an extra freight, No. 13, with twenty-four loaded cars; that about one mile west of Westmoreland station Higgins came back with a flag and said his train was stalled, and asked him to come up and help push them through the ledge. This train was about forty rods in the rear of the stalled train. Higgins then got upon the locomotive, and rode to within two or three cars' length of the train, when he stepped off, and went between the front of the locomotive and the caboose at the rear end of his train, for the purpose of coupling the two together. The locomotive moved very slowly. Mr. Fassett said that he perceived the coupling was not made, as he saw the end of the saloon car rising up a little. The steam was then reversed, and the locomotive backed ten or fifteen feet, as it was a heavy grade at this point. Mr. Fassett got off his locomotive, and went forward and found Mr. Higgins dead in the middle of the track, where he had been caught between the front of the engine and the saloon car. The engineer could not tell whether he got upon the pilot or whether he got hold of the shackle-iron. The engine moved ahead about a foot after the steam was reversed.

Walter E. Judd, the fireman on the F. H. Kingsbury, testified that he saw Mr. Higgins go in front of the locomotive to couple it into saloon car of train No. 13, and saw him stoop as if to pick up the shackling-rod, but saw nothing after that. He also corroborated the statements of Mr. Fassett.

George W. Tobias, conductor on the train to which Mr. Higgins belonged, testified that his train got stalled, and that he sent Higgins back with a flag to stop extra train No. 13 and then went ahead to see what caused the engine on his train to stop. He did not see Mr. Higgins after that. He testified that the extra came up very slowly, and when it touched the saloon car the contact was hardly perceptible.

As no one saw Mr. Higgins in the act of coupling the trains together, the exact cause of the fatal accident cannot be given; but it must be owing to a misstep or wrong move made by himself.

B. F. PRESCOTT,

For the Board.
