A FATAL AUTO ACCIDENT

Second Victim of Railroad Crossing Crash Dies in Bridgeport Hospital

Bridgeport, Conn., Jan. 26.—Early last Thursday morning at the Bridgeport Hospital, Frederick Weidlich succumbed to terrible injuries received Wednesday night when his brother, Ernest, was instantly killed and the automobile in which they both had been riding was smashed by a fast moving train at the crossing of the Housatonic Railroad tracks on North Ave. This makes the third member of the Weidlich family whose death has been claimed in railroad accidents, another brother, Charles, having been killed when a trolley overturned at Ash Creek about 10 years ago. Both men were members of Weidlich Bros. Mfg. Co. and resided with their mother at 628 William St.

They were in a closed car, and, according to witnesses before Coroner Phelin, were unable to hear the violent blast which the siren of the onrushing locomotive emitted while approaching the crossing. The stories before the coroner differ somewhat. Engineer Burns and Fireman Wohn say that the automobile passed east in front of the train, while Stephen Barrett and Arthur L. Hayden, who witnessed the accident, said that the machine came north on Lindley St. and turned into the train to proceed west.

Engineer Burns stated that he did not see the automobile until he was almost upon it and then applied the brakes with such force that the engine stopped in its own length, but too late to avoid the tragedy.

H. F. Hines of the Weidlich Bros. Mfg. Co., Bridgeport, Conn., stopped in St. Louis from a trip through the northwest and tarried long enough to be initiated in Moolah Temple, Mystic Shriners, along with William Weidlich, president of the Weidlich Jewelry Co., before going on east to the factory. Mr. Hines says he is convinced from his observations on his northwestern trip and on a previous one to the Pacific Coast, that this is going to be one of the greatest years in the history of the jewelry business. He thinks that the sales of silverware this year will break all records. Apart from the weddings delayed by the war, the people, he says, have not been buying silver during the war and they will do so now, and besides there will be many families returning to housekeeping who have been compelled to live in other fashion during the war. Stocks everywhere are low, he says.
