Zimmerman, coroner, find, after properly and closely exam- ing witnesses and reviewing the evidence as taken down on paper by my clerk, John M. Warn pier, that train No. 18, on Feb. 25, 1890, on the Richmond division of the (Pan Handle) Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis railroad, when nearing Hagerstown, on what is called "Wiggins' grade," assumed such a high .rate of speed that the* engine became uncontrolable, and when the train reached the base of the grade there is a curve upon which the machinery of the engine gave way or went to pieces, and parts of it went under the following train derailing' three of the following coaches, at or near the water tank, dragging them over the ties,- one thousand, seven hundred and twenty-five (1725) fe«t, tearing up the track and demolishing ties. And at this place the chair car containing several passengers, was dragged on the north side of the bridge, the end hanging down, struck the bank on the east side of the canal, causing two of the coaches to brake loose from the rest of the train and then and there causing instant death to three of'the inmates of the chair car; also causing- mortal ' wounds to another passenger, that only lived about two hours after the wreck. I therefore find the Richmond division of the Pittsburg, Cincinnati & St. Louis railway company responsible for-the death of the four persons. :.(Seal) W. W. ZIMMERMAN, Coroner of Wayne County, Indiana. Another Great Pants DownSale! Of 500 Pairs at Harry Franks You don't need a Jimmy nor dark lantern to understand the value.

Th<?y Make It Warm for Ice. liansome Ice, the saloon keeper, on the door step of whose saloon Mart Shaffer killed Ed Lowry, has seen nothing but trouble since that ill starred affair. The better people pf Walton determined among themselves that they would have no more of Ice, and consequently indictment after indictment was brought in against the saloon keeper and fines piled up on him to such a height that payment of the same was out of question. He laid in jail for some time in default of the payment of these fines, but was finally, a few weeks ago, released by the court on the condition that he give up his nefarious business at Walton [and depart to some other place, no more to inflict his presence on the good people of Walton. Ice complied with this condition, but instead of wisely leaving the country and going some place where his reputation had not preceed- him, he planted himself down in the quiet little burg of. Deer Creek and opened out a gin mill there, much to the indignation of the" people down there, who had heard all about Ransom and wanted him not. An indignation meeting was held the other evening in Deer Creek and the people took action on the matter by adopting the following resolutions: Resolved, That we, the citizens of this community, do solemnly protest against any person or persons selling intoxicating liquors in this community in anyway. We further pledge ourselves that we will do all in our power to prosecute any person or persons that do sell intoxicating liquors in violation of the laws of the State of Indiana. A second resolution was adopted, which read as follows; Resolved, That we form ourselves into a permanent organization, that we may the more successfully carry out the plans of this assembly. James Fry, G. P. Hopkinson and Dr. W. H. Plank, were appointed a committee to wait upon Ransom and inform him of the sentiment of the assembly, and it is altogether probable that the community will make it so everlastingly warm for Ice that he will be compelled to seek a place which will prove more congenial to his spirit.

Hogle, of Anderson, was in the city yesterday. Competition As We Have Found It. We've found many kinds of competition in our 29 year's experience, and we've learned to like it—most of it. Advertising Competion. There's the competitor who has advertised us widely. He has enthusiastically claimed that his prices beat McCaffrey's, while knowning better. McCaffrey was his target, and people learned that we were the thorn In his ilesh because he could not sell at what we could. Deceiving Competition. Some have put their pi-ices on one thing for a day or two- at less- than manufactures could n.ade it for, then said "compare . with McCaffrey's published prices." People soon found out that that was the only price/they "had within reason. • •'.''. Fearful Competition. Some have boasted. oC the lowest prices without naming one of them. They were afraid of something—and that something was the prices that they claimed to undersell. Petty Competition. The majority have never tried to meet us, but have said what they could at their'prices. Wide awake people left them alone. What it Has Done For Us. This competition has built our business. It was only by .having lower,, prices, better qualities and a wider assortment than others that we drew our trade. And that is what is increasing it. •'• M. McCaffery & Co.
