Jamei Miller Fatally Injured by Being Entangled In a Belt aed Shaft at the Box Factory. A horrible accident occurred at the Illinois box factory today, in the, old building. James Miller, a lad of only iwenty years, became caught on a rapidly revolving shaft which actuates a. circular saw, used for cutting reeds for the demijohn department, and the unfortunate boy was horribly mangled before the machinery could be stopped. Miller was employed in the demijohn department of the glass works, and at the time be was hurt he was engaged at cutting the reeds to be woven about the glass bottles. The saw used for this purpose Is in the basement of the old box factory building. While Miller was working at a revolving belt his clothe" caught on the revolving shaft and he was instantly drawn to it and his legs twisted around it. His left leg was torn almost in two below the knee and the bone wae broken in a half dozen pla ces between the ankle and thigh. His right leg was not BO badly torn, but the bones were broken in several places. Both his arms were broken, one being fractured in two places. Luckily the machinery was stopped Before Miller was ground to death. When taken from the shaft he. was a pitiful sight. His clothes were torn and he was bleeding from a half dozen places. The ambulance was summoned and he was taken to St. - Joseph's lospital for surgical attendance. At the hospital it was found that bis njuries were even worse than they were first thought to be. In addition ,o his having bis four limbs so horribly mangled and crushed it was fSund /hat he had suffered internal injuries ;hai must prove fatal. His whole body was bruised and lacerated, so that his sufferings were intense. He pleaded for chloroform to relieve him of his suffering. Surgical attendance was given him at the hospital and the broken bones were set, but it was apparent that he would not be able to survive the nervous shock, even Chough his injuries might not otherwise be serious, He died at 1 o'clock p. m. James Miller lived with his parents In the Krase building on Second street. He was much thought of by ais fellow-workmen and the news of the accident created a great sorrow among them. One young woman became hysterical and fainted, and it was several hours before she was revived. Don't lose your bearings and go to Belle street when looking for Dorsey Fuel Oo.

Willie Kent, slayer of bis brother, Noble Kent, on an Alton train, last Saturday, is reported to be at home. He has barricaded his house, has two revolvers and several guns, and food enough to last him all winter. He says he will not be taken alive. The neighbors will not go near the house. It Is said that the sheriff is organizing a posse to capture Willie. It the sheriff is no more valiant and efficient than hie predecessor was in the Vlr- den riots, bo will probable call upon the Governor for the militia, and if he does not send them the grand jury will have another chance to indict him for falling to heed the sheriff's calls.

Referring to .the fact that certain Republicans are desirous of having a party primary, the Sentinel-Democrat makes one of its characteristloiDreaks, like this: At present the feeling in favor of a (Republican) party ticket is very strong, and this feeling is likely to grow rather than diminish; it would be interesting at least to see the two factions line up a voting primary and thus settle the matter of supremacy. But what a walloppiug we would give them at the polls. Theaautenoe: "But what a w.*l- lopping we would give than at the polls" Is Sentinel Dnnysratie all over. "We" of course refers to the Democratic party, and its harmony and united action was beautifully displayed last fall, when the Sentinel- Democrat foaght the Hope faction and the Hope faction fought the S.-D, aad 'we' were "wallopped"iu Alton by majorities ranging up in tho hundreds, and iu the county from 1,000 to 1,700.
