TO HIS DEATH Did an Unknown Man .Ride Last Evening. Was Stealing Transportation on Front End of a Baggage Car. tbe Head End Collision on the Panhandle Near Boone—A Passenger and Freight Train Come Together on tbe Mala Track. A head'end collision occurred on the Panhandle about 5 o'clock las evening, three-quarters of a mile southeast of Boone. Boone is merely a stopping point about a mile south east of Royal Center. Passenger train No. 45, -north bounj, which left here at 4:30 for Chicago, and incoming freight train No. 76. met on the main track while both were running at a hign rate of speed. An unknown man who was stealing a ride on the passenger i train was killed instantly. He, with a young man named William Mluthorne, whose home is at Royal Center, were on the front end of the baggage car next to the engine. Mlnthorne saw the impending danger, and after warning the stranger jumped. Luckily Mlnthorne escaped with a badly bruised hand, caused by coming in contact with the gravel at the side of the track. The stranger did not heed the warning and when the colllson occurred he was caught between the engine tender and baggage car, and his life was crushed out. The right side of his head and chest were squeezed Jout of shape, and his limbs were badly bruised. There is a scalp wound about ten inches in length extending from a point below the right ear and extending in a circular shape over the crown of the skull and back to the right ffemple. The passenger train was in charge of Conductor Edward Alexander and Engineer Goodrich. The freight fain was in charge of Conductor Fink and Engineer Jack ^Kennedy. The train crews, with the exception of Baggagemaster Chas.Gray and Brakeman Bantz of the passenger train, escaped injury. One of Mr. Gray's legs were slightly sprained and bruised, and Mr. Bantz' right hand was bruised and his wrist sprained. Both were injured by being thrown down in the car when the collision occurred, but were able to continue the* trip. Three of the passengers Wm. Enyart, of-this city, and the two little daughters of Mrs. Hardesty, of Kewanna, were thrown from their seats and slightly injured. Mrs. Stella Sebastain McOlure, was a passenger on the train. The freight crew was doubtless at fault. Engineer Kennedy's watch was fire minutes alow, and the headlight on his locomotive was not burning. Instead of remaining at Boone, he and'Conductor Fink thought they could make the east track which enters the city over the Chicago hill before No. 45 could pull in from the west track or cut-off. In this their calculations were incorrect. The locomotives were both derailed and considerably damaged. Four freight cars and the baggage car on No. 45 were derailed. News of the wreck spread like wildfire, and, as usual, there were many wild rumors afloat. Superintendent Walton left at once on a special for the scene of the wreck. • The wreck train followed a few minutes later. Dr. Hetherington accompanied Superintendent Walton, but there was little need of his services. The loco notlve on the special was attached to No. 45 and the journey to Chicago resumed after the baggage had been transferred to the car taken from Mr. Walton's special. Q It took butj* short time to clear the track, and tbe dead man was brought back to the city on passenger train No. 4, due here from Chicago at 8:20 p. m. The body was taken to Barnett's undertaking establishment where it will be held until Coroner Busjahn completes his Inquest. The dead man has not been identified. His name was a first thought to be Cotner and his home in the neighborhood of Boone, but tnis is denied by parties by tbat name who were called this morning to view the remains. The dead man was probably 25 years of age. He was 5 feet five inches tall, dark hair and moustache, and weighed 150 pounds. He was evidently a farm laborer. A cheap silver watch, two silver dollars, a husking peg, a plug of tobacco and a box of salve were found in his pockets. CHICAGO MARKETS Recelred Dally by fr. W. Mllner, at 6. A. R. Building.

The issue of an uclimited supply f irredeemable paper money is the way that Seneral Coxey would reform he currency. la other words he would keep paper money in circula- ion by mating it so cbeap that nobody would dare to hold on to it.— ournal. Yes, Coxay and McKlnley are botb heap money men. Coxey believes he government should lend money o the people at 2 per cent per annum, while McKinley believes the rovernment should loan money to the aanks at 2i per cent, in order that anks could loan it to the people at 8 >er cent in advance. Is it any won- er that all the bankers were for McKinley in 1896. GEOKGE BTJRKHAKT. Official facsimile of Medal Awarded DR, PRICE'S CREAM POWDER WORLD'S FAKR.CHICAGO, 1893 A Grand Success.
