Brother of Red Jacket Superintendent Hurled into Pile of Iron

Picked up by the pilot of a freight engine which was running about thirty miles an hour, Henry Wilson, brother of W. A. Wilson, superintendent of the Red Jacket collieries, was thrown into a pile of railroad iron and had his head badly injured. The man, who was walking the track when the accident occurred, according to the statement of the engineer, turned about in response to the tooting of the whistle but did not leave the track before the train was upon him. He was taken to Dr. Going's hospital at Matewan.
