The runaway Saturday on Fifteenth street, in which Ed Slevin, the cabman, was hurt, was more serious than was supposed. The victim was taken to the city hospital yesterday afternoon. The injured man has sought the services of an attorney and will probably commence a suit for heavy damages against the Tri-City Railway company, he asserting that the Santa Clans car frightened his horse and caused the animal to run away.
