W. Harvey Cox Met A Tragic End
4. VICTIM WAS A BRAKEMAN
Body Caught Beneath Twelve
Freight Cart And The
Wilmington, Oct: 25. Mr. W. Har
vey Cox, a well nown citizen of Wil
mington, met a tragic death yester
day afternoon at 1 :30 o'clock when a
freight train of 37 empty cars was
wrecked at Bolton presumably by the
spreading of the rails. Mr. Cox was a
brakeman on the train, and was riding
either on the tender or the front car.
The engine and the front cars, 12 til
number, were derailed and piled up
in a mass of wreckage, and he was
thrown beneath the derailed cars.
Jim Ryan, the colored fireman, had his
back sprained slightly. No others were
The freight was an extra, and left
Wilmington about 12 o'clock for Flor
ence. Mr. Cox was a brakeman on
the train and was riding on the front
end. The last person to see htm be
fore his death was the agent at Bol
ton. The train did not stop at the
station, and when about 100 yards be
yong the station without warning the
engine was turned over half, and 12
of the cars in front were derailed and
broken to pieces. Mr. Cox evidently
was thrown forward, and the cars
were piled on top of him.
His body had not been recovered early
As soon as the wreck occurred the
Coast Line offices here were notified,
and a wrecking train, under the super
vision of Supt. V. R. C. King was im
ediately sent to the scene, reaching
there about 4 o'clock. A wrecking
train and crew was also sent from
Florence. Train No. 55, for Florence,
S. C, which leaves Wilmington at
2:15 o'clock, was detoured via Fay
ettcville. The track was sufficiently
cleared so that train No. 57, which
leaves here at 7 o'clock, was able to
get through by using the sidetrack at
Bolton. The main line probably will
not be cleared up before this morning.
All trains, however, will be able to
pass through by means of the side
track with slight delay.
The train was in charge of Conduc
tor Leon Hatch, and Mr. Marion
Brandt was engineer. Jim Ryan, the
colored fireman, had his back slightly
sprained by being thrown against the
side of the engine. The engineer was
uninjured, it is said.
Mr. Cox was well known in Wilming
ton, having been for 14 years a deputy
sheriff in the office of the sheriff here.
He was exceedingly popular in a wide
circle of friends and it was with deep
sorrow that they learned of his tragic
death. Expressions of genuine sorrow
were heard on every hand. In his 14
years of service in the sheriff's office
Mr. Cox became acquainted with hun
dreds of people throughout the city
and he was held in high esteem and
respect by all. About a year and a
half ago he took a position with the
railroad as brakeman and was confi
dent that it would not be long before
he was given a place as conductor.
He was very popular with his asso
ciates on the railroad and they, along
with hundreds of other friends, are
griqved at his death.
Mr. Cox was about 45 years old and
was twice married. Surviving are his
second wife, Mrs. Lydia Walker Cox,
who Lves at 815 North Fifth streetm
and one son, Mr. Floyd Cox, who
lives at 717 North Fourth street. Be
sides these he leaves his mother, who
lives at Verona; a half brother, Mr.
Henry Sandlin, also of Verona, and
one brother, Mr. Ira Cox, of Durham.
They will have the tender sympathy
of many friends in their bereavement.

YALE MAKES CHANGES
Jones and Queal Start Work In
Football and Crots-Country.
Preparation for Present Season Moat
Elaborate In Hlatory of College
Little Change Looked for
In Rowing Policy.
Two changes la Yale's poaching sys
tem went Into effect with the report
ing o( fail tquada for athleOo train
ing. In both football and cross-conn
try work permanent paid coaches have
been Installed. In football. Howard
Jones, the new permanent coach, has
many players at Nantucket, and in
cross-country running, Billy Queal, the
professional champion, has most of
the prominent candidates for the dis
tance team daily working out over the
hills near hit home In New York
The need of a revision tn both the
football and cross-country teams'
training has been teen by the new
resident coaches, and the preparation
for the preaent leaaon la the moat
elaborate In the hlatory of the two
porta at Tale.
Yale has not heretofore installed a
permanent coaoh In either of these
sports. In football a head Held coaoh,
changed from year to year, hat been
named and no continuity In system
hat been secured.
In cross-country work, John Mack,
the track athletic team coaoh, has
had charge, but hit duties aa football
team trainer and aa track coach have
prevented hit giving much attention
to the cross-country fall season. Un
der Quest's coaching Yale distance
men last spring made the beat show
ing In the lntercolleglatea In years,
and It la now felt that there will be a
chance for a Yale victory In the cross
country team run this fail.
Yale has re-elected two captains of
losing athletlo teams for another sea
son, "Bud" Bnowden of the crew and
"Jack" Blossom of the baseball nine.
Blossom waa a member of the junior
class last season, but waa completely
upaet by losing the Harvard series and
consequent ohamplonshlp, and stated
that he would not return next year,
although re-elected captain. He has
changed his mind and will set the
squad to work toon after college
opena. In two week. He will reap
point aa hit coaches Frank Qulnby,
who has been coach for two years, and
Bernie Tommers, who had charge of
the pitchers last season. Yale has
had wonderful material the past two
seasons, and the aame nine that swept
everything before it In the early
games last spring will return, with
hardly an exception, for another year.
Captain Bnowden has not indicated
his coaching plans, but It la under
stood that another trial of the English
ttroke will be made. Bnowden hat
been In Europe the paat summer, and
one report la to the effect that an Eng
lish coach will come here this fall
to spend the entire season In drilling
Little change It looked for In the
Yale rowing policy because of the fact
that Bnowden was committed thor
oughly to the English system of coach
ing laat year, and It la thought that
little change will be made In hit ad
visers, the committee which shaped
Yale'a policy last year. Prominent
among them are AverUl Harrlman of
New York cRy; Fred Allen of Boa
ton, chairman of the committee;
Payne Whitney of New York city, and
Alfred Cowlea of Chicago. Harrlman
waa an undergraduate and waa head
coach last year. It la not expected
that he can give time for continuous
coaching here because of bis duties
in connection with the Harrlman
estate, of which he la one of three

Ray Collins, with Boston, aud Wal

pionship games this season. Bach has

ers have won two games apiece. The

CHANGE IN FOOTBALL CODE
Rule on Onslde Kick It Revised In
Conference Held In New York
Action Regarding Officials.
The entire code of football rules in
effect for this season's plays waa dis
cussed, dissected and interpreted at a
gathering of more than one hundred
football coaches, team managers and
officials of the game In New York re
cently. It waa the annual Interpreta
tion meeting of the Intercollegiate
football rules committee and the cen
tral board of officials.
The only rule that met objection
waa Rule 80, and to this an addition
waa made which will be Incorporated
In the final version. It haa to do with
the privileges of players In making
an onslde kick. The addition will
permit players behind a player making
an onslde kick to enjoy an equal right
with men of the opposing team to go
after the kicked ball. They may not
Interfere with players on the opposing
aide In their attempts to catch the
Dr. James a. Babbitt, chairman of
the central board, announced that the
Mat of officials for the season now
completed would ahow an improve
ment over previous seasons. Corres
pondence with the leading colleges
had shown, he said, that the list of
twenty or thirty officials each preferred
largely coincided. Since this prefer
ence for a limited number of officials
waa so generally ahown and since the
list of officials in recent years has
become overburdened, It was the pur
pose to reduce tt and try to bring the
officials for whom prefernce haa been
Indicated by the colleges In general
Into greater use.
Baseball as a Business.
Thirty million to a minimum esti
mate of the fans who see baseball in
a year's time. There are U leagues
tn organised ball. All have from six
to eight clubs. They average 180 games
a season, with from 150,000 to 800,000
aa a daily attendance. The New York
Giants alone played to 7(0,000 last sea
son; 850,000 saw the eight world's
series games laat year. One New
York paper estimated that It sold 100,
000 dally extras during the big series.
Begins Work on Basebsll College.
Ex-Manager Charlea C. Carr of the
Kansas City, American association,
team, will soon begin the working out
of bis plana for the establishment of
a school of baseball at San Antonio,
Tax, which he will open next spring.

FRANK G0TCH AGAIN RETIRES
World'a Champion Wrestler Will Nev
er Return to Mat No Man Can
Win on Forever.
Frank Ootch, world's ohamplon
wrestler, who ownt more than 8,000
acres of ground In Minnesota, says he
will wrestle no more. "I have had my
last turn on the mat. I'm thirty-six
years old, nearly thirty-seven, and with
15 years In the game I've had enough.
When a man gets past thirty he's like
a house that a carpenter finishes. As
soon at completely built, the house be-
gins to deteriorate. I know more about
wrestling now than at any time In my
life, but each year takes away more
endurance. I'm not afraid of any man
In the country now, but the people
have teen me at my beat and don't
want me to 'come back.' No man can
go on and win forever."
Move Against Baseball Spikes.
I The long list of accidents to the
1 baseball players of the Toronto Inter
national league team this season haa
moved President McCafferty to drattlo
action. He will suggest that the cluba
of the organisation each hold a meet
ing and appoint one delegate to attend
a meeting In the offices of President
Barrow to discuss the adoption of dif
ferent spikes from those now general
ly used on the shoes of the players.
Mr. McCafferty haa offered to try la
crosse apikea, which are of hard rub
ber. They Can't Ring Him.
George Bell, with St Joe, in the
Western, haa a record of winning 81
straight games this year. He pitched
II while In the Wisconsin league and
was recalled by the Saints, where he
added two more to his string. This
gives him second place among the
pitchers of all time, so far as this feat
Is concerned. In 1886 the records
show that some twlrler pitched 88
games for the win column.
Hat Two More McLoughllna.
Secretary Rouss, of the Pacific
Coast Lawn Tennis association, says
that there are two boys on the coast
who in time will take the place of prea
ent champion McLoughlln. Roberta
and Davis are the two youngsters, the
former fifteen years old and the lat
ter teventeen years of age.

THINGS THAT ALMOST HAPPEN
Steamboat Captain Telia Why His
Hair la Nearly White, Though
He Never Had an Accident
"It is the things that almost hap
pen which cause gray hairs In this
business rather than the things that
actually occur," said a veteran cap
tain of an excursion boat to a New
York Sun man.
"When I waa thirty-three years old
I waa running a boat to Coney Island.
On one occasion. In the lower bay, fog
settled down thicker than mush. I
held a compass course and everything
went smoothly enough until It waa al
most time to change the course and
head from the bay toward Coney. I
had heard a boat by Its whistle I
knew It waa a towing tug paas me
further up the bay.
"Even though I could not aee the
bow of my boat I waa hanging with
my head out of the pilot house win
dow and straining my eyes to see,
when my quartermaster, who waa
standing on the very peak of the
bow, called for me to reverse. I rang
for full speed astern and threw the
wheel hard to port
"The fog lifted for an Instant and
dead ahead of me I saw a scow with
'Dynamite written on Its aide and a
red flag floating above it. I kept the
wheel hard over and It seemed to me
the engineer waa an eternity in get
ting the engine reversed. We Just
grazed the scow. I learned afterward
that It had been In tow of a tug and
that the hawser broke and the tug
crew had lost sight of the scow In
"When I got home that night my
wife pointed out a gray hair the first
I had ever had.
"In all my experience Tve never
had a serious accident, bat as yon see
I have a head full of gray hairs
caused by things that almost hap
pened." M'COY KNEW HUMAN NATURE
Explaining How the Pugilist Waa Able
to Oat His Csr Through Jam
Where Others Palled.
Kid McCoy drove down In his large,
shiny motor. A friend accompanied
him. Coming up the avenue waa a
flock of hooting cars. It seemed Im
possible tor McCoy to find a way
. "Let's turn down a side street. Kid,"
said the friend. "Well make by It"
"Watch me," said McCoy
He turned hit head to one aide, and
looked Into the eyes of the alarmed
friend. He drove his oar right at the
approaching covey. Their drivers set
up a quacking like a lot of frightened
ducks. McCoy drove on, without look
ing at the road ahead. All the other
cars pulled to one side and made way
for him. As he passed, all the other
driven leaned out of their cars to
make injurious comment upon Mr.
"Get your bluff In first," said McCoy.
"That's the rule in lite that appUes to
motoring as well as to fighting. If I'd
dropped back and honked timidly ev
ery one of those guys would have
crowded me a little farther Into the
curb. Because they thought I was a
careless, rockiest, Bflat mushhead,
who'd as lief have an accident aa not,
they gave me the right of way." -New

Nobody but a human sloth would

high time that business houses lay
