Caboose No. 07, of the Kansas City,
Mexico and Orient, was brought intd
Wichita yesterday on train Xo. 404 of the
Missouri pacific. It was in a badly de
molished condition, and showed the effects
of a good bumping received in Conway
Springs, Wednesday night.
Train No. 401. with Conductor Jim Sul
livan and crew in charge, were switching
in the Conway Springs yards, and acci
dentally ran into the Orient caboose,
which was knocked completely off the
track and turned over. The boys say that
it was very amusing to watch the crew,
who were asleep on the inside when the
accident occurred, make their "get away"
from the over-turned car. Their slum
bers were badly disturbed by the bump,
and when the car turned over they began
swiftly to find a place to get ont. Some
succeeded in climbing out of the win
dows, and some, after much trouble, were
able to And the door. The inside of the
caboose looks as though it might have
been through a very interesting- cyclone.
This is the first accident of any kind that
has occurred cn the Orient since that
line was put in operation.
ARE AFTER THIEVES.
Skeleton Tickets Are Stolen from Rail
Railway officials are in possession of
information which lads them to believe
that an organized gang of thieves is at
work stealing tickets of the skeleton
form and selling them in all parts of the
country. This form of ticket is more
easily manipulated than any other, and
the losses sustained by tne roads through
such manipulations are very heavy, in
deed. The Railway Ticket Protective Bu
reau is at work trying to run down
the peipetrators of the frauds, and have
already succeeded in collecting much evi-
dence which may be of interest in the
prosecution of the thieves when they arc
arrested. The method employed, it is de
clared, consists of robbing small offices
where access to the tickets is easy and
disposing of them to scalpers at widely
separated points. Tickets which have
been taken tip on different roads at dif
ferent times recently have been found
to be filled out in the same hand-writing.
