Found in his clothing were only a comb, a safety pin, a putty knife, and some tobacco. The only mark of identification was the tattoo of a railway engine and tender on his right forearm. This made it probable that he was a former railroad man. Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser, County Attorney M. C. McMahon, and Coroner Dr. R. A. Evans went to Swea City in the afternoon to view the stranger. Another transient, riding in the tender, was the only eye-witness. Sheriff .Dahlhauser had the sheriff at Estherville pick up the witness, who was brought here for the inquest. (No other evidence was taken. Inquest Verdict Is Suicide. The inquest verdict was suicide. Testimony was given by Arthur M. Schneider, former Lu Verne boy, who was riding on an oil car. He saw the stranger sitting on the embankment, and saw him get up and dive at the train. The body was caught by the cow-catcher and tossed off the tracks. Schneider ran on top of the cars to the engine, where he told the en gineer, and the train was stopped Disposition of the body will be made according to orders fron •Doctor Steelsmith, of the state board of health, and if it is unclaimed, it will probably be sent to a medical school.

Ingham Sees 'Muss' In Iowa If Amendment Is Voted Out Harvey Ingham was in the prime of life when the liquor issue was stirring Iowa to the depths in the °0's. There were once saloons in Algona, and Mr. Ingham's memory goes 'back to that period. „ Mr. Inghani wa s against liquor then, and he has not changed. He is against liquor today, and, remembering the turmoil of a half century ago, he feels that the IbatUe will have to be fought all over again if Iowa votes for repeal on June ?0. <'* am perfectly, willing to have it known that I am very much opposed to repeal of the 18th amendment," >Mr. Inghwn said in a letter to AJfonJan Friday, "particularly with the new beer law in operation. "Why would it not be better for the people to wait a year or two before opening up other distilled liquors, and see how the beer law really works? '(Nobody can go over the record of Iowa in the 60 years that we have been legislating on liquor and not see the sort of muss we are going to be in if the amendment is defeated and the question is brought 'back to the legislature to devise a workable scheme for the sale of liauors, r "We shall be in for nothing but trouble, with the liquor issue dprn- to our politics as thought that he suffered from gall bladder trouble, and oh March 1L at the University hospital, Iowa City, an operation was performed.
