Crushed about he hips and pinned for nearly five minutes between the elevator and the first floor of the Feldstein-Levine Company’s store this morning, Hugh Mason, aged about 17, was probably fatally injured. He is at the Cottage State hospital where at noon it was stated his condition is serious. The lad sustained a compound fracture of the pelvis. The bulk of the crushing pressure caught him about the abdomen. Despite the seriousness of his injury the lad, a sophomore in High School, remained conscious and directed the work of those about him who sought ot extricate him. At the hospital a thorough examination was made. If it is deemed necessary an operation will be made this afternoon. Dr. H. J. Coll was in charge of the examination.
Mason has just taken a couple of women to the third floor and had descended to the cellar to oil the armatures. It was just about 9:30 when Mason jumped into the cage and turned on the power. In jumping his right foot caught in some waste and he was unable to get clear of the sides. He was carried rapidly upwards, where he was caught between the elevator and the ceiling. He managed to turn off the power, but was unable to move his position. George Porter was the first to reach him. Girls ran into the street and the crowd which gathered thought the building was on fire. Miss Edna Cook ran into Down’s shoe store where she summoned her brother, Clarence, and J. J. Driscoll. West Ritenour was also summoned and the three tried to pry the elevator door open. Meanwhile the boy lay between the elevator and the floor, calmly giving directions to the men. A crowbar failed to open the cage door so the men went to the cellar where the boy was removed. White as chalk but perfectly conscious, Mason was carried to the front of the store. Dr. L. P. McCormick was called and made a hasty examination and sent for the ambulance. Blood spurting from a boil on the boy’s neck caused people to think he had been struck in the head. His injuries, however, were confined to his abdomen where except for slight bruises, he was unmarked. V. H. Soisson’s automobile carried the boy to the hospital.
Hugh Mason is the son of Henry G. Mason, a Baltimore & Ohio railroad conductor. His father is today out on his run to New Castle. He was informed of his son’s accident this afternoon. Mason is a Sophomore in the High School and works at Feldstein-Levin’s after school and on Saturdays. He is about 17 years old and walks with a slight limp.
Excitement ran high at the store this morning. The hospital authorities found themselves swamped this morning answering calls as to the boy’s condition. Soon after the accident, Father J. T. Burns, of whose church Mason is a member, arrived on the scene having heard a report that the boy had been killed.
Hugh Mason, who was crushed by an elevator in the store of Feldstein-Levine Company on North Pittsburg street last Saturday morning, died of his injuries yesterday afternoon about 4:55 o’clock at the Cottage State hospital. The body was removed to the parlors of Funeral Director J. E. Sims and after being prepared for burial, was taken to the home of the parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Mason, No. 408 Francis avenue. Requiem high mass will be celebrated Saturday morning at the Immaculate Conception Church. The hour of mass will be announced later. Interment in St. Joseph’s cemetery.
Deceased was a son of B & O Conductor H. G. Mason and Mrs. Mary E. Mason, and had resided in Connellsville nearly all his life. He was 16 years, five months and 20 days old, and was a remarkably bright young man. He attended High School and since last August was employed after school hours and on Saturdays in the store of Feldstein-Levine Company. He was popular among the employees of the store and his untimely death has caused great sorrow, not only among the employees of the store, but among his school friends and all who knew him.
Since the accident many telephone calls regarding the young man’s condition were answered by hospital authorities and his room was banked with beautiful flowers sent by the sophomores and other friends. He was the only child of the family.
One of the largest funerals held here for some time was that of Hugh J. Mason, which took place this morning at 9 o’clock from the Immaculate Conception Church. Requiem high mass was celebrated by Rev. Father J. T. Burns. The large church was well filled with sorrowing friends and relatives of the deceased. The sophomore class, other members of the High School, and the Holy Name Society were represented. The floral tributes were numerous and very handsome. The High School sent a handsome floral basket, while the employees of Feldstein-Levine Company sent a beautiful piece. During the services the store was closed and all the employees and the management attended the services. The pallbearers were the following members of the Holy Name Society: Regis McGann, Clyde McGann, Bernar O’Connor, John Opperman, Henry Wagner and Gibson Mason.
“We find that Hugh J. Mason came to his death as a result of an accident. We recommend that the elevator in the Feldstein-Levine Company’s store be sent to lock at the first floor or descend to the level of the cellar floor and the elevator be enclosed by a screen or boxed in.” That was the verdict reached by the Coroner’s Jury at the inquest into the death of Hugh J. Mason, the 17 year old High School boy who lost his life when he was crushed between the top of the elevator and the first floor landing two weeks ago. The case was in charge of Coroner H. J. Bell of Dawson. The jurors were Edward W. Shaw, William McCormick, George Marietta, Harry Dull, David Stillwagon and J. G. Fenton.

Excerpt from letter from Bill Meason to Bill Hawker,
6225 Catalina Avenue, Oak Forest, Il,
dated January 15, 1929
There is some mystery about Catherine Meason/Mason as indicated in the records. Some of the records show her maiden name as Paull and others as Catherine Martin. Now your bible indicates that Kate Martin and John Meason were married April 1, 1852 it also indicates that she was born May 28, 1821 but a bible record including birth dates of their children which we have indicates she was born May 28, 1828. However the same bible indicates that John Mason married Miss Catherine Paull in 1 Apr 1852 and that he was born in 1821 where as most of the records indicate that he was born in 1828.

Frick Coke company policeman, is shot through the left arm and James Merchant, negro, is shot through the leg, as a result of a raid at House 54 at Continental No. 3, last night. Constable Mason died in the Uniontown hospital at 11:15 o’clock, soon after he was admitted. He was shot through the abdomen.
Constable Mason, Sergeant MacBeam, County Detective Tony Bell, and Constable John Feeney went to Continental No. 3 about 9:45 o’clock last evening to conduct the raid on House 54, where gambling was supposed to be in progress. Deputy Constable Mason, and Constable Feeney stationed themselves at the kitchen door, while Corporal MacBeam, and County Detective Bell went to the front of the house. Officer Cain patrolled the side of the house to prevent escape of any of the inmates via the upstairs windows. At a given signal the front and rear doors were attacked. As Corporal MacBeam entered the house on of two negroes in the downstairs room opened fire with a .45 automatic pistol. At the first shot, Corporal MacBeam fell back against the county detective, drawing his gun as he fell. MacBeam fired on shot with his left hand, but it is not known whether he or Constable Feeney, who also fired, wounded James Merchant, aged 37, colored, who was shot in the left leg.
Officers early this morning wer undetermined whether there were two negroes or only one in the downstairs room when the officers were attacked. Eight negroes, said to have been playing cards in an upstairs room, were arrested and lodged in the county jail. The negro who killed Mason, finding his way blocked through the front door, made a dash for freedom through the kitchen. Mason was in the way and the officer went down with a bullet hole through his abdomen. After shooting Mason, the negro turned and fired in the direction of Officer Dain. The bullet struck Cain as the officer was reaching for his gun. The bullet entered his left arm.
Merchant, the negro, was shot during the melee in the down-stairs room. It being reported that he came from an upstairs room when the shooting started. Mason, MacBeam and Cain were hurried to the Uniontown hospital, followed in another car by Merchant. Mason died soon after being admitted. Mason was shot through the abdomen. He was conscious while enroot to the hospital but realized that he had been mortally wounded. MacBeam was shot through the right chest, the bullet passing through his shoulder and emerging through his arm. Soon after being admitted to the hospital, he was operated upon and cam from under the operation most encouragingly. While his condition is serious, it is not thought that the wounds will prove fatal. He may lose the use of his shoulder. Cain suffered a bullet wound in his left arm. He returned to duty at Continental No. 3 after the wound had been treated at the hospital. Merchant is a patient in the hospital.
Corporal MacBeam rapped on the door of the house and upon being asked who was there, replied: “The State Police, open the door.” When the door was not opened immediately he kicked it in with his foot and stepped into the room. It was then that the negro with the gun opened fire, hitting MacBeam in the shoulder. County Detective Bell, who was following MacBeam into the house, was unable to shoot because his brother officer was between him and the negro. Later he held his fire when the negro went through the rear door in case Constables Mason and Feeney were in the path of fire. As the negro disappeared through the rear door, County Detective Bell dashed around the house and opened fire. The negro and county detective kept up a running fire until the negro disappeared in the darkness. One of the four bullets fired at County Detective Bell missed the officer by inches. A search of the house disclosed a box of .45 automatic shells, the same caliber that was used by the negro in fighting his way to liberty. Officers believe that all the shooting was done by one man. Five negroes, said to have been in the house at the time, were arrested by officers and placed in the county jail. They are Nathan Jackson, W. A. Stokes, Henry Davis, William Burd and Tom Harris.

Dunbar, Jan. 28.—The town was somewhat startled last evening to learn of the sudden death of William Mason, a well known citizen of this place. Mr. Mason has been afflicted with dropsy of the heart for some time and it is thought that this was the cause of his sudden death. Mr. Mason has not been able to work for several days but appeared to feel better yesterday than he had for some time. Shortly before five o’clock he went to the stable of his brother, John, to feed the hogs and while there dropped dead. John upon going to the stable a few minutes later was startled to find the lifeless body of his brother. The attending physician had recently told his family that his disease was such that his death was likely to occur very suddenly, but as he had appeared so much better during the day that it came very unexpected to them. The deceased was about 65 years of age and leaves a family of grown up children. His wife, one brother John, and one sister, Mrs. M. Markey, and the following children survive him; Mrs. Mary Belle Gilpin, Misses Maggie, Emma, Mellie and Tillie.

“Your letter to the Graves Registration Bureau about your cousin was referred to me for action. The troops of our regiment were ordered to cross the Meuse river and canal. After trying several times to get up bridges, which were always blown up by the Germans, a small foot bridge was slung across. Some of Company H’s troops got across in the night. Clyde Matthews was drown, most likely walking off the bridge into the river as the night was very dark. “He was a brave soldier, ready to go ahead no matter how great the danger. The machine gun and artillery fire was terrible and still our men crossed. General Pershing characterized this feat as one of the greatest in history. Men swam the river when no bridges were at hand. It was a glorious deed and you can feel proud to know that your cousin so nobly gave his life. May God bless you.”

Charles Ruben 'Bus' Matthews
Charles Ruben 'Bus' Matthews, 61 of Mt. Independence, Pa., born March 23, 1951, Connellsville, Pa., went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 7, 2012 after a long and well fought battle with his illness. Beloved husband of 43 years to Carole McGregor Matthews and loving father of Mark and John and special friend Jessica Crayton, Ruby and husband Melvin Wolfe; Cherished grandfather of Katie, Shane, Justina, Melanie, Mike, Chrissy and Joey; dear great-grandfather of A'Dianha and McCayla Dawn (born June 7, 2012). He is survived by the following brothers and sisters, Josephine Halfhill, Ray and Linda Matthews, Paul and Karen Matthews, Sally and Dan Hair, Curt and Bonnie Matthews, Julia and Jim Hair, Darlene and Frank Hawk, Gary and Sue Matthews, Perry and Brenda Matthews, Sondra and Scott Rodeheavor and numerous special nieces and nephews; aunts and uncles: Ralph and Joann McClain, Toots and Raymond Lowry and Ernie Wadsworth and several cousins. Preceded in death by parents, William and Jean Matthews, father-in-law Dale McGregor and brother-in-law, Phil Halfhill. He had a special love and admiration for Glenn Bryner, Flo Alkire, all of his garage friends and racing buddies and his wife's family.
He was employed by Anchor Hocking Glass for 16 years before being diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia We would like to thank all of our friends that sent well wishes and supported all of our fundraisers during the last 28 years since his diagnosis. One of Bus' greatest joys was driving his #5 race car at Roaring Knob. He never won a lot of trophies, but the friends he made at the track were worth more to him than any trophy, especially his pit crew. He received more attention than anyone with his large sponsor sign: 'SPONSORED BY WIFE'. His love of hunting was known far and wide. The young boys he helped mold in to great hunters started with his younger brothers, sons, grandson, nephews and dear friends. You weren't considered a good hunter unless you made it to the woods with Bus. He could tell a hunting story like no other. The trips to Wyoming, Colorado and mainly West Virginia with his six brothers and brothers-in-law made stories that will be told for generations. Hunting with Bus was a true adventure. Words can never describe what his garage meant to him. Even the last few weeks when walking became impossible, he would have someone drive him over to the garage. He looked forward to the guys who came for coffee and conversation every day. He so enjoyed his Friday night Blue Grass Music buddies. Bus never learned to play an instrument, but he really enjoyed the music. One of Bus' favorite songs was Amazing Grace which they always made the last song of the night.
From early in the morning until maybe early the next morning if the situation called for it, you would find Bus under a car. The vehicles that passed through his doors were unbelievable. I doubt there is anyone on the mountain that could say they never asked Bus for help in some way on their car, even if it was just a question. He had people show up that nobody knew to have him work on their car. If he had the money for labor (and a lot of times the parts), he would have been a self made millionaire! If you didn't have the money he would just say 'Don't worry, we'll catch up the next time.' One of his dearest friends, Glenn Bryner, has been there consistently for the last 28 years. When Bus had leukemia in 1983, Glenn was there to help him through very difficult times and the good times in that garage. That friendship never waivered.
Bus was truly a man of many talents, but his greatest gift was his word. He always left you feeling you knew you could come to him for anything, and we all did. He was the go to man. Whether near or far, Bus would go the distance and you NEVER had to ask twice. The pride Bus felt of his family can never be described. He loved each and every one dearly. Money never meant a thing to Bus, but mention a family member and the love and pride he showed made him the richest man on earth. So now Bus, you rest high on that mountain, because yes, your work on earth is done.

In Springfield tp., Fayette co., on the 20th ult., of Scarlet Fever, JENNIE, youngest daughter of Ann and John McBeth, aged 3 years and 26 days.
Close softly, fondly, while ye weep,
Her eyes that death may seem like sleep,
And fold her hands, in sign of rest,
Her waxen hands, across her breast.
And make her grave where violets hide,
Where flowers bloom on the green hill-side,
And blue-birds, in the misty spring
Of cloudless skies and summer, sing.
But we shall mourn her long, and miss
Her ready smile, her ready kiss.
The patter of her little feet,
To us her stammer'd phrases sweet.

SCOTTDALE, Dec. 3—(Special)— Thomas L. McBeth was run over by a hay baler, weighing four tons, and died three-quarters of an hour later at the office of Dr. E. P. Weddell of Scottdale, where he was brought from the scene of the accident near Edward Werkman’s at Hawkeye yesterday afternoon about 5 o’clock. One wheel of the heavy machine, which was drawn by four horses, ran over the unfortunate man’s body diagonally from his right thigh and across his left breast. The physician could not make any close examination of his injuries as he was in a dying condition and nothing could have saved him since he was literally crushed to death.
The victim of the accident was 35 years of age, and leaves a widow and one child. With Murchison Baird, of near Chains Mill, west of town, McBeth was employed on the W. R. Byers farm near Tarr, left the John G. White farm, of this side of Connellsville, where they had been balling hay, to go to the Byers place, the machine being drawn by four horses. They came here by the way of Morgan Station and stopped a while in Scottdale. When they left there, McBeth was driving, but later went back and took the seat at the rear of the heavy piece of machinery, an iron seat similar to that on a mower of binder. While passing along the road on this side of Hawkeye he fell from the seat and the wheel of the rear truck caught him. McBeth was extricated from under the baler and brought in a spring wagon to the doctor’s office but he was beyond any mortal aid, and his life soon ended. The body was taken to Owens & Ferguson’s and Coroner C. A. Wynn of Greensburg was notified.
SCOTTDALE, Dec. 4— The body of Thomas L. McBeth, who was crushed beneath the eight ton hay bailing machine, when he fell from it where he was riding and the wheel on a rear truck passed over him, at Hawkeye, on Wednesday evening, will be buried on Saturday afternoon in the Baptist Cemetery at Foxtown. Deputy Coroner H. A. McMurray conducted an investigation here yesterday with the verdict that the death was accidental. The deceased was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas McBeth, who live with their son, Charles McBeth, near Scottdale. Beside a widow and three children there are surviving him the following brothers, Samuel, John, Jacob, of Central, and David, while Mrs. Jacob Hair of Alverton is a sister.

Carbon monoxide poisoning yesterday took the lives of two Uniontown men. Killed were Edward R. McCafferty, 56, of 81 N. Beeson Ave., and Alex Zaucha, 42, of 5 MacArthur Terrace.
They were found last evening in the bedroom of McCaffery’s small house at the N. Beeson Ave. address. Deputy Coroner Andrew Haky Jr. said the men died as the result of carbon monoxide poisoning “probably early yesterday morning.”
City police said the deadly gas was created from an unvented hot water tank in the bathroom. According to police, three members of the McCaffrey family came to the police station shortly before 6 p.m. and told authorities they knocked at the locked door of their father’s home but received no response. Police wer dispatched in the scene and gained entry through a kitchen window. The bodies of the two men were found on a bed. From the appearance of the room, police theorized that McCaffrey and Zaucha had been drinking and fell asleep on the bed. Due to the cold weather, the windows of the three-room brick structure were closed, locking the deadly fumes in the home. The hot water heater was located near a wall separating the bedroom and the bathroom. There was a small opening in the wall directly above the heater. Police said McCaffrey lived alone in the house. His family resides at 3 Hadden Place.
A member of St. Joseph’s R. C. Church, Mr. Zaucha is survived by several brothers and sisters including, Mrs. J. William (Helen) Hibbs and Mrs. Stanley (Mary) Krzysiak, both of Uniontown, and Mrs. Thomas (Roberta) Frankhouser, Hopwood. Friends will be received in the Haky Funeral Home, 139 W. Fayette St., today from 7 to 10 p.m., until Tuesday at 10 a.m. when prayer services will be held, followed by additional services at St. Joseph’s R. C. Church, Uniontown.
