BARELY ESCAPE DEATH Carriage Completely Wrecked and Horse Knocked Down In Collision Buried Under and Passengers Run to Aid-of Injured and Physician Be Seriously Injured. Special June Lloyd Butts and Miss Catherine Feighuer had a narrow escape from death yes- terday when the carriage in which they were riding was struck by a southbound which was due here at o'clock. The ladles were driving across the track at Walton's Crossing when'the car struck the rear end of the car- riage with terrific force. The carriage was completely and the ladies were buried beneath the debris. The horse was also knocked down but was not in- jured. The motorman stopped the car at and the conductor and passen- gers hurried to the ladiesVassistanee. A carriage was soon secured and the ladies werf driven to the home of Mrs Butts' F S. a mile and a half distant. Dr. Taylor was summoned and found Miss Feighner but not dangerously injured. Mrs. Butts was more seriously but no bones were broken. she was painfully bruised about the head and shoulders and is suffering from the nervous shock. It is feared that she may have been' and the outcome is awaited with apprehension by anx- ious .friends and relatives. The ladies state that before driv- ing onto the crossing they took es- pecial pains to watch and listen lest a car should be appicaching and not seeing or healing one they conclud- ed they were safe to cross. This is the third crossing accident of this kind. Grand June This city undoubtedly will have a candidate in the next gubernatorial campaign. Friends of Amos S. Mus- selman promise that he will be in the race when the succeed Fred M. Warner in the executive office in Lansing grows warm. Mr Musselman is not yet prepar- ed to make any statement on the matter or discuss it He will say merely that within a very few days it will be necessary to declare him- self. That tremendous pressure is being brought to urge Mr. Musselman to announce himself a candidate for gov- ernor cannot be and somewhat against his own prefer- the popular local wholesale grocer will be forced to early assert himself. Those who are in close touch with the political situation say that Mr. Musselman's announcement of his position virtually will be a state- ment that he will become a candi- date. It seems to be the impression that he has held back to assure him- self that there is a real demand that he carry Grand Rapids' colors in the gubernatorial race. That he has had such his friends is beyond and the only infer- ence is that Mr. Musselman intends placing himself in the hands of his friends in the matter of .the gover- norship. If he he will be a can- didate for governor one year from the coming fall. Infallible Test of Butter.
