Frederick Keffer Kelham of the class of eighty-eight, a young lawyer, was killed on the elevated railroad on Saturday. His body was picked up by the conductor of an uptown train in Fifty-third street, near the eighth avenue station, at 5.30 o'clock.
It was at first a mystery how he had come there, even how he had been killed, as his body showed no external injuries of a mortal character, but it was soon ascertained that he had parted from a friend at an early hour, near the scene of the accident, to take the elevated for his home on West Ninety-second street. He evidently fell from the platform unseen while waiting for the train, and was caught by the next passing and dragged by his clothes 150 feet to where he was found, receiving internal injuries which caused his death.
Kelham was 29 years old. He was admited to the bar last year, after a two years' course at the Columbia College Law School.
Until recently he was employed as clerk in a law office at 140 Nassau street, but went to another firm in the neighborhood of Wall street.
