A Fearful Accident.
Mr. James H. Williams Crushed by a Dummy in Birmingham.

The painful news of the death of Mr. James H. Williams was received here Tuesday afternoon. As this was the first intimation that anything was the matter, the news was quite a shock to his relatives and friends.

In the telegram received, no cause was assigned for the death. But a short paragraph in the Birmingham Age-Herald of last Tuesday explains it. It is as follows:

"In trying to board a moving East Lake dummy train out about Sloss furnace yesterday, James H. Williams missed his footing and fell under the wheels. Both legs were horribly mashed. He was taken to Charity hospital where one leg was amputated. At last accounts he was doing fairly well."

He died the next day about two o'clock in the afternoon. His father immediately wired for the remains to be brought to this city.

Mr. Williams was born and reared in this city, where he has a large number of friends. He was the son of Mr. A. C. Williams, Sr., one of our oldest and best citizens, By trade he was a moulder and for the past six years he has been away from home, visiting here a few weeks ago for the first time since he left. He was a genial, whole-souled young man, who endeared himself to all who knew him. It is hard for the friends of his boyhood to realize that he is now no more.

The remains of Mr. Williams arrived yesterday afternoon on the East and West railroad and were carried to the home of his father in this city. The funeral services occurred this morning at the house at 10 o'clock. They were conducted by Dr. Dobbs in the presence of a large number of sorrowing relatives and friends. After these services the remains were taken to Oak Hill cemetery where they were consigned to the grave.
