Special to The Washington Post

NEW YORK, April 22. - Walter A. Seymour, a Manhattan salesman, who lived near Mount Vernon, was killed by an electric train at the Mount Vernon station this evening.

He was waiting for a local train to go to Pelham, when and express came along on the local track. Mr. Seymour, it is said, was standing close to the edge of the platform. The suction of the train as it rushed by drew him under the wheels and he was ground to death.
