The Central road, for the first time since the strike began, yesterday ran tbe work train to Albany, taking up about fifty men. It came back, again with about the same number.

The company offi dais are at their wits' end to keep a few trains moving, oven going so far as tc send trains back and forth from East tc West Albany, thereby creating the im- pression that they aro moving freight, but the public is not to be hoodwinked by this From information just received, it ia learned that there a general desertion of men who have been induced by the company to come here from other points.

The only exciting incident Thursday was the arrest by tbe Albany police of William Campau, a molder twenty-six years of asre, caught while attempting to mill a pin in a freight train at the upper and crossing going towards West Albanv.

Car which the fatahtu-s occurred, had seventy passensers. Conductor Steadman, of the ilMatel train, then took the stand. The impor- tant part of his testimony was'that, just before the accident, while looking from the baggage car he saw a gravel train approaching on tha other tract and a gang of laborers shift from that track to the one he was on. The engineer sounded the danger signal and the labor- ers jumped from the track. Witness then saw an upright object about three feet high directly, between the rails of his track. Ile.coulil not state its nature, but anticipated trouble from it and im- mediately laid himself flat on his face in the center of. the car. The train jumped the track almost instantly. The baggage flew about witness 'and'ha received severe injuries. As soon as he could, get out he assisted in the work of rescue. Ho stated that the upright object "was just whera "tne laborers jumped from, and that he could, not see it until the men scattered. Tho train was running thirty miles an hour. J. T. Thomas, of Quincy, conductor of tho gravel train referred to', h'-ard the danger iignal from engineer Bab- cock on the Vineyard train. Witness saw a "track jack" standing between the rails, but could not tell whether or not it was clam pod to the track. His train bad gone some distance before he learned that the accident had happened; had no doubt the "jack" caused it. Michael HArtney testified that he had been a section hand on the Old Colony road'since no previous Ail- road experience; had used the j.ick under another boss. It Bometimes takes two or more men to got out tho jack. On Tuesday morning it took three men to get it out "I was working the jack at the time of the accident. I did not know a train -was due, and nobody told me ono was duo. I loft tho handle of tho jack in and was standing bot.veen the rails. I facing the inward bound train Some men between me and the bridge obstructed my vlson. I saw the gravel train comin? and men passing to the in- ward track to it When I saw the inward bound train I tried to remove tho jack, but was unable to do so. The men got excited and jumped. I could not suc- ceed in raising the jack. The engine was seven or eight yards from me when, I jumped. I saw the jack struck by the cov.catcher; it tipped toward mo. Then tho engine left the track.
