Mr. Donald showg/sympfomB of having sustained a fracture of the base of his skull, which is almost Invari.a- bly fatal, besides a severe injury, possibly a fracture of the left hip, and probable internal injuries. ' Thomas IJonald, who is n Ifreman on the night shift at No. 3 works of the Prime Western Smelters, hitri finished his regular work of the night and was waiting at the re :;ular street car stop lo return home on the ear which struck him. Although nobody .<:ay exactly how the accident hap- Iicned, even the motorman of the car, Frank Wortman having Aeen unable to see clearly on a<-counf of the snow and frost on his window. It is thought that Donald started to cross to the other side of the track as the car nearcd him and miscnicniaied ilf speed. The vestibuli- doors of tin street car on-the north side were closed lo shuf^ut the strong north wind, and Donald, who was standing on the nortff side of tlio track as the car approached, seeing that ho could not pet into the car on ihal side, chose to cross the track before the car stoi IH'd. The car did not strike hlin soiiarely and thus he (was thrown ;iside, and, fortunately,-^ot caught under the wlie <'lB.

The Injured man also sustnln- rd a number ol severe cuts about tli' head, as w ,M! as bruls-s ' about the body, which indicate the possibility of internal injuries, althouph the later cannot be definitely diagnosed until Donald regains consciousness, if he ever does. Whether or not Donald sustained a fracture of the left hip will also remain in doubt until he regains consciousness, Tha iniur.-»d man after receivinc emergency trpatin^nt wj!s taken to 'nis home, and this afternoon he was taken to the sanitarium.
