KILLED AT BELLE DOCK. Ron Over By a Freight Train His Head Sewered From His Body. A fatal accident occurred at the Consoli dated railroad's grade crossing at Belle dock yesterday afternoon. Shortly before 3 o'clock a switch engine with five coal cars was backing down the dock when a man came walking up from the dock directly in the way of the cars, which were approaching him rapidly. Before the train could be stopped the man was struck, knocked down and the cars passed over him, completely severing his head from his body. The clothing worn by the man was an ordinary black suit and brown hat. In the pockets were sixty cents In money and nothing to ind'cate the identity of the man. There was a New York Herald addressed to A. Foshea, foreman of varnish gang, repair shops. Nobody of that name is known here. The remains were viewed by Dr. Eliot. Medical Examiner Dr. While was within a few steps of his office, in another room, and did not hear a telephone call to view the body. Coroner Mix was away in Wallingford. No blame is attached to the gatekeeper or the engineer of the switch engine, which was No. 100, for the accident. For A Beautiful Finish Use Ivory ftmrtB, VALLINGFORD MYSTERY. No Identification as Yet of the Body Found In a Shoe Box The Excitement Not the Body of the Durham Pensioner Younc Turrill' Story The Antopsy Does the Shoe Box Fnrnlik a Cine What Dr. ItlaGau-g-hey Says The Remains Burled Yesterday The Deceased About Twenty-Five Years or. Ace The Stomaeh to be Analyzed by Dr. White. Walunoford, Ang. 9. The body of the man which was found in a shoe box Sunday noon by Edward Turrill in a swamp in West Walling ford near the Cheshire line has not yet been identified. - Coroner Mix, of New Haven, oame up on an early train this morn ing. He immediately ordered the box with its ghastly remains to be brought to Consta ble Rod Austin's barn, which is situated back of Wallace's block in Wallingford center, and at once began his investigations. He looked to the box for his principal clue. The coroner had as his aides G. F. Smith and Undertaker Griswold's assistant. The trio with closed doors examined the box and its contents for a possible clue to one of the most horrible butcheries that has ever taken place in this State. The contents of the box so far as could be ascertained from Coroner Mix consisted of a lot of straw saturated with blood and the tarred paper with which it was lined. The outside of the box had evidently contained an address, but this had been carefully cut out and obliterated by a knife or chisel. The mark on the outside of the box was of some large wholesale shoe manufac tory. It consisted of. a capital letter "C" enclosed in a diamond. The mark was painted in stencil with black paint. The marK was supposed to be trie trade-marc or. (Jlapp, Davis 6t Co., of Boston. The box measured - 30x17x2. Coroner Mix had the box washed off for the purpose ot ascertaining it any tanner mattes existed. None could be fonnd. Dr. James McGaughey, assisted bv Dr. Davis, commenced an autopsy on the re mains this afternoon. A private conference was neia at JJr. McUaughey's house, in wmcn uonstaDie Austin, t-oroner . Mix, Dr. McGaughey and Dr. Davis took part, just be fore the autopsy took place. At 2 o'clock the autopsy commenced. The remains eon sisted of the trunk of a man twenty-eight inches long, twelve inches across the stomach and eleven inches over the hips. In life he must have been of fair size, weighing from 144 to loo pounds. The lees had been dis jointed and cut from the body, the socket being plainly visible and the wound having a sinootn appearance. It oould easily be seen where the knife had been driven into the body to find the location of the socket. The arms were similarly cut close np with a smooth round edge, not jagged as it would have been had any other instrument besides a knife been used. The head had been sev ered from the body just below the fifth ver tebra or the spine, and the spine laid bare. The throat had been cut completely around with a very sharp knife. The windpipe, arteries and veins, which are hard to cut, were squarely done. Cutting nnder the skin snowed it to be clean and white and very little decomposed. The hair on the body had not come out. The doctors finished the autopsy at 4 o'clock. Dr. McGaughey was interviewed by a Courier reporter immediately afterwards. He said: "It is a very mysterious case. The autopsy finds that the body was that ot a younger man than was at first supposed. We think that he couldn't be more than twenty-five years or age. He was in an almost perfect condition of health when he met his death. The trunk of the body was finely formed and he must have had a fine physique. There were no external signs or marks on the back or front of the trunk, The cutting was evidently done in a bun- gling manner. We think that life had been extinct from the body for between five and ten days. The stomach we cut out and it will be analyzed by Dr. M. C. White, of New Haven, to-morrow. The body was in a partial state of decomposition. All the internal organs were found to have been in a healthy condition. The butopBy so far," continued Dr. McG aughey, ' 'has furnished no clue as to the identity of the remains. I am pretty snre that the remains are those of a murdered man." Some people have said that medical students might have dissected a body and disposed of the remains as found, but Dr. McGaughey says that, a more improbable, thing oould not occur as medical students da not do things in the manner that the body show. Coroner Mix got G. F. Smith, the shoe dealer in Wallace's block, to view the box for the purpose of ascertaining where the box came from, or from whut firm. Mr. Smith told the Courier reporter that the box had contained a dozen men's half double soled Congress gaiters of the sort that come with yellow thread sewed in the sides of the soles. He thought that the original contents had been a cheap grade of shoes, probably selling from $1.75 to $2 per pair. He was nnable to tell from what house the box had beeu shipped. He said he was pretty sure that the box had come from some Cheshire shoe firm. Other shoe dealers in Wallingford were interviewed by a Courier reporter for the purpose of ascertaining any information about the mysterious box. They did not recognize the marks, but they say it is barely possible that they had sold such a box as they dispose of one or more pretty much every day. A scouting party left Wallingford this afternoon to scour the woods in hope of finding the missing parts, but it is not likely that their efforts will meet with much success. Many supposed that the body found was that of Albert J. Cooley of Durham, who has been missing since a week ago last Thursday. He was a man of dissipated habits. He drew $1,500 pension money from a New Haven bank on the day of his disappearance. The theory was that on his return from New Haven he stopped at a bawdy honse, and that he was murdered for his money. The doctors say that the body found could not have been that of Cooley, as Cooley was known to have been badly diseased and a much older man. Cooley was well known hereabouts, and last worked for Charles H. Young in Yuleaville. Edward Turrill told the following story to a Courier reporter to-day regarding the finding of the body: "I was after berries Sunday, late in the forenoon, and was accompanied by a dog. When I reached a point in the lot about three-fourths of a mile from the house of Phillip Sampson, colored, my dog scented something and darted into a clump of bnshes. I followed him and found him gnawing on a shoe box. There was a lid on the box, nailed on. I was surprised at the find and endeavored to turn it over. It proved heavy. A sickening stench arose from the box and I immediately supposed that all was not right. I rushed home, a mile distant, and told my father, Joseph Turrill, Giles Sampson and S. S. Watson, who live near by. We went to the spot and I found that my suppositions had been correct. We discovered the horrible and ghastly remains. We forced the lid of the box off and dumped the remains out, thinking it tnignt oeseme dead animal cut np." The spot where the body was found was about one hundred yards from a deserted old cart track two miles long that runs crosswise from the two mains leading from Wallingford to Cheshire. On the extreme north side resides Philip Sampson, a well-to-do colored man, and his family. There is no other house until that of David Gaylord is reached. located upon a hill some distance nearer than Walnngiord. t he road is seldom used and is covered by a dense growth of trees that at times in summer makes the place damp and miasmatic. The land adjacent to the road has a thick covering of whortleberry bashes, from whichat this time great quantities of berries are collected. The authorities think this afternoon that the intention of those who carried the box to the Parker farm was to bury it, and that they aban doned the design through fear of detection or because they did not find a suit able spot. It has been discovered that the box was first left across the roadway from the place where it was found and afterward brought to where found. Detective McjNa- mara, of Meriden, came down on the train this noon and is at work on the case. Chief Ford, of Meriden, was here to-day also. All Wallingford is greatly excited over the murder. On every street corner and shop the all-absorbing topic of conversation is the murder and the autopsy. Coroner Mix said to-day to a Courier reporter: ' This is the most mysterious case I have had since I was appointed coroner. With one exception I have fonnd out exactly what caused death, but this case puzzles me more than any yet. I can't say whether or no I have obtained any clues." This afternoon at five o'clock the remains of the murdered man were buried in the cemetery. Undertaker Griawold had charge of the interment. The remains were buried in the southeast corner of the cemetery, in a hole about 5x3 feet and rather shallow. The plot where the body was interred was in the paupers' square. Manv think to-nieht that Coroner Mix has found a clue in the shoe box, which he will make use of in due time. A mining man. Frederick C. Gardiner of Middletown, son of Alderman Gardiner of that city, has been missing from his home for nearly a week. The New York police were requested Sunday night to look for him. He is about twenty- seven years of age, and resided on College street. He was married about five years ago. He was engaged in the wholesale fruit busi ness, BOABD OF COVNCILKIER.

Sargent against members of the Board of Aldermen in the Derbv railroad matter was read. Councilmen Chillingworth and Palmer were on their feet at about the same time, but the chair recognized Councilman Chillingworth first. Councilman Chillingworth moved that in the appointment of the committee of investigation on the part of this Board the president of the Council be named as one of the committee. Mr. Chillingworth said he thought it important that the president of the Council with his knowledge of the law should be a member of this committee. Councilman Palmer moved to amend that the committee be nominated and elected by ballot. This motion started a discussion on the subject as regarding the propriety of such action, some of the members taking the ground that it would be disrespectful to the president to elet the committee by ballot. The president stated that he had no choice iu the matter, and if the Council desired to elect the committee, he should not object. A yea and nay vote was then called for on Councilman Palmer's amendment, and the amendment was adopted by a vote of 14 to 13. On motion of Councilman Palmer, the Board voted to concur with the Board of Aldermen in the appointment of a committee of investigation. Nominations for the committee being in order, the following were placed in nomination : Cottncilmen Kleiner, Palmer, Hiller, Beers, Stevens, Sullivan, Burritt, Schorer. On motion of Councilman Chillingworth, the clerk was directed to cast the vote of the Board for the election of President Kleiner as the first member of the committee. President Kleiner was declared elected. The balloting then proceeded, Councilmen Cameron and Winchell being appointed tellers. The first ballot resulted as follows: Whole number of votes 27; Beers 5, Burritt 4, Hil-let 3, Sullivan 2, Palmer 12, Kleiner 1. There being no choice another ballot was ordered and resulted as follows: Whole number of votes 28. The chair declared that there were only twenty-seven Councilmen present, and as there were twenty-eight votes cast this ballot would have to go for naught. He therefore ordered the balloting to proceed. It was discovered before the next ballot was concluded that there were twenty-eight Councilmen present, and the previous ballot was declared as follows: Beers 4, Burritt 4, Hiller 3, Sullivan 2, Palmer 13, Winchell 1, blank 1. On motion, the clerk was directed to cast the ballot for Councilman Palmer as the second member of the committee, he receiving the highest number of votes. It was then voted that the Councilmen receiving the highest number of votes on the remaining ballots shonld be declared elected. Another ballot was ordered, and resulted as follows : Whole number of votes, 28 ; Beers 3, Burritt 4, Hiller 8v Sullivan 5, Stev-.ens 4, Schorer 3, Chillingworth 1. Councilman Hiller was declared elected the third member -of the committee. The last ballot resulted as follows : Beers 3, Burritt 2, Sullivan 9, Stevens 6, Schorer 6, Asher 1, blank 1.

A correspondent writes: One of those peculiar events of the age took place on the 28th of last month at Orange county, N. Y., it being the marriage of Miss Mattie Stone, aged eighteen years and a daughter of John Stone of Middlebury, to John Hadden, aged sixty-five, formerly of western New York, who for the past two years has resided in Sonthbury. Mr. Hadden had boarded at the house of the girl's parents, and the aged gentleman had won the affection of the young lady so that by obtaining the consent of the young lady's parents the happy couple went to New York State and were married. This makes the third time that Mr. Hadden has had the knot tied. Waterbury American. The Industrial School's New Superin tendent, Mr, W. G.

The Rev. Father Maloney, pastor of St John's Catholic church, preached a discourse Sunday which many people are finding fault with. His sermon took the form of an ora torical assault on the public schools. He said that he was about to attend the Hartford synod Tnesday, as all the priests are going, and if they all feel the same way that he does on the subject, there will not be anyone in St. John's parish who will get absolution if they send their children to the public schools.
