From Rochester Democrat and Chronicle on June 16 1898
DOD June 15 1898

June 16, 1898
Henry Schriebe Was Kicked to Death by a Frantic Horse
Rendered Unconscious
Was thrown from the wagon and died ten minutes after assistance
reached him—A verdict of accidental death rendered.
Henry Schriebe, employed by Charles Weidman of Despatch, drove in from that place yesterday morning with a load of lumber. His wagon was one that is ordinarily used to haul lumber in, having no box. The horses which were the cause of his death were large powerful animals. After having delivered his lumber he started homeward. Going east he had passed nearly through Thompson avenue, a thoroughfare running from the rear of the Palmer fire works plant to within a few hundred yards of Culver street, when his horses became unmanageable.
Schriebe was seen to lean from the front of his wagon, probably to arrange a portion of the harness and in so doing startled the horses. The reins dropped to the ground, and in attempting to recover them Schriebe received a fearful blow to the head from the hoof of the nigh horse, but this did not cause him to cease his efforts to recover the lines. In rounding the corner of Barnum street Schriebe was heard to shout, “Oh! help me!”
These were the last words that he uttered. He made another attempt to recover the reins and this time received a blow that rendered him unconscious. He laid in the center of his wagon with the horses galloping at full speed toward the railroad tracks.
Tearing along directly south the frightened animals made a break for the lawn that is in front of the Rochester Car Wheels Works office, where two heavy hitching posts were ripped up in a twinkling, but the animals kept right on, tearing up the lawn with their heavy hoofs, until they struck the edge of the shed that is at the southeast end of the wheel works grounds. Here they swerved out into the road again, but only for an instant, and turning a sharp right angle the horses described a circle in the field which lies between the wheel works and the Central-Hudson coal shutes, and brought up against a clump of earth that caused the body to slide from the wagon.
The animals were stopped immediately after this by Frank McGann, who had come from the wheel works.
By this time many of the employees of the wheel works had run out, and the superintendent, W. Noble Thompson, was at the side of the bleeding and mangled man almost as soon as Schriebe fell from the wagon.
The man’s skull had been crushed and his shoulders and breast were bruised and torn.
Police commissioner C.T. Chapin immediately sent for water and restoratives, but they were of no avail. A few groans were the only sounds made by the dying man. The Homeopathic Hospital ambulance was telephoned for.
Everything that could be done for the unfortunate man was performed, but just as the ambulance crossed the Central-Hudson tracks the man gave one or two convulsive shudders and was dead.
Coroner Kleindienst was called, and after viewing the body ordered it taken to the morgue.
Blood covered the wagon and one of the horses, and altogether it was a gruesome sight. The progress of the runaway was plainly marked by the upturned posts and the ploughed-up sward. Schriebe was 35 years old and is survived by a wife and three children. The family lived in Despatch.
Coroner Kleindienst Impaneled a jury and an inquest was held at the morgue last evening. Charles Weidman, of Despatch, by whom Schriebe was employed, testified that the same team had run away once before. Two eye witnesses of the accident said that they saw the team going at a frightful rate of speed but they did not see Schriebe until he fell from the wagon. Another eye witness saw one of the horses strike Schriebe with its hoof while he was leaning over.
Dr. H. D. Shepard, of the Homeopathic Hospital, said that a fractured skull was the cause of death. The coroner’s jury rendered a verdict of accidental death.
