Special to Tho Tribune.
OGDEN. June 5. A shocking story
comes from the little village of
Roy, on the RIo Grande, about
ten miles out of Ogden.
James Iynch, in a dying statement,
charges a Rio Grande brakeman with
having deliberately thrown him be
tween the cars ' of a rapidly moving
freight train, as a result of which both
legs were cut off near the hips. Detect
ives and Sheriffs are now looking for
the brakeman, and he is likely to have
to face tho charge of murder in the
llrst degree, as Lynch cannot recover.
Lynch was brought- to Ogden today
and taken to the hospital, where every
attention is being given him.
Judge Howell went to the hospital
immediately and took the man's dying
Lynch had just been released from
the city Jail, where he had been serv
ing time for vagrancy. In company
with a man whom Lynch knew as
"Dad" Murphy, he accosted a brake
having dellverntely thrown him be
G2 and asked for a ride. The brakeman
wanted 50 cents per head, but the men
did not have the money and when the
train pulled out they crawled into an
overhead Icebox in a refrigerator car.
The brakeman discovered them and
fired a bullet from a pistol through the
floor, but did not hit them- The men
then crawled from their hiding place
and the brakeman urged them lo Jump
off, but they insisted that the train was
running too fast, whereupon the- brake
man seized Lynch and threw him be
tween the cars.
He fell across the rail, both legs being
cut off near the hips.
Lynch says that as he fell he heard
the brakeman exclaim: "Oh, I am
sorry!" Then ho says he lost conscious
ness. A pasHongor train came along and
picked him up and he was brought to
Sheriff Bailey went to Salt Lake this
afternoon In an endeavor to locate Dad
Murphy, the man who was with Lynch
when the trouble occurred. The Sher
iff did not llnd his mmi and expresses
tho opinion that the train crew took
Murphy through out of the country.
The brakeman was not arrested, but
will probably be tomorrow.
The Sheriff knows the bmlteuian's
name, but declines to give it out until'
tho arrest la made.
During the time that Judge Howell
was taking Lynch'fi ante-mortem state
ment, Lynch admitted that his name
was not Lynch and told the Judge that
he would not reveal it before the spec
tators, as he did not want It to get
into tho newspapers Ho doert not want
his relatives to know anything about It
with the exception of one .sister, and
asked the Judge to pledge himself not
lo reveal his true name, as hi wanted
to tell him what It was that he might
write to his sister and explain the clr
cunistnnces. At midnight tonight
Lynch'a condition had changed but lit
tle and the doctors hold out no hope
for his recovery.

, and Plans Agreed On.
Special to The Tribune.
WEISER, Ida., June 5. Delegates to
the Democratic State convention
that meets in this city tomorrow
are arriving on every train.
About one hundred have already ar
rived and as many more are expected
on the night trains.
Much Interest is manifested In to
morrow's proceedings. Senator Dubois
is hero as a delegate, and will Intro
duce an anti-Mormon resolution.
Today's train from the west brought
thirty out of ninety-six delegates from
the five northern counties to the Dem
ocratic State convention. All were
agreeable on the principal issues, such
as mild Instructions for Hearst, pro
Mormon resolutions and Keitfeld for
anything he wants, including national
committeeman or later for Governor.
Prominently mentioned for delegates
tonight are Dubois of Bingham. Helt
feld of Nez Perce, Donnelly of Koote
nai, Rallentyne of Blaine. Perky of Ada,
Hawley of Ada. Steunenberg of Canon,
Woods of Shoshone and Hunt of Ada.
Many Hearst enthusiasts would in

Mayor of Boise, and who has a strong
following in the sduthcast, and Ballan
tyne of Blaine, who is popular with the
former Populist and Silver Republican
who is yet but a receptive candidate
From present appearances the Hearst
delegates arc In the majority.
The convention will be called to order
by Hon. SI Donnelly of Kootenai coun
ty, chairman of the State central com
mittee. Rode 270 Miles for Proxy.
The Mormon contingent and their
friends held u caucus, presided over by
C. Moore, who has no certificate of
election to the convention, but who
rode 270 miles on horseback from Coun
cil to White Bird and procured a proxy,
which will be the only bone of conten
tion for the credential committee.
The Hearst caucus Just adjourned
was presided over by E. F. Walter of
Ada. John St. Clair of Owyhee was
secretary. The principal speeches were
made by Nugent of Owyhee, Palno of
Ada and Sovereign of Shoshone. The
da nous claims to represent J33 votes.
The proposition submitted by the
caucus composed of Mormons and sym
pathizers from Fremont, Bear Lake,

o'clock tomorrow and the convention at
It now looks like mild resolutions for
Hearst, the Ada county resolution on
the Mormon question, and. a delegation
of Dubois. Holtreld, Woods, Ballantyne,
Perky and Rega of Ada.
The Mormon caucus has three ob
jects In view; one to defeat the Dubois
resolutions, another to defeat Dubois
as a delegate and the lattor to defeat
ex-Governor Hunt as a delegate to St.
Hunt has no particular constituency
and it is believed this desire will be
the only one of the three they will ac
complish. S. P. Donnelly will probably bo tho
National committeeman. i
Important Caucus Held.
A caucus of delegate representing
1.13 votes out of the nocessany 347 to

PARIS. June 5, It is understood that
France adopted a view favoring
the withdrawal of some of the
American warships now at,' Tan
gier. The presence of the American
ships there 'has had" the effect of at
tracting ships of other nationalities, in
cluding Italian and British.
According to the French view, if a
local agitation occurred, American,
Italian and British shipy iniglit land
forcey to preserve order, and it Is
pointed out that this would involve se
rious responsibilities upon tho United
States, and would also have the ef
fect of discrediting France's paramount
Influence In Morocco.
The American officials say that the
United States warships will be prompt
ly withdrawn if France undertakes the
entire burden of securing the release of

American Fleet Affords Security.
LONPON, June 6. The Times corres
pondent at Tangier says:
The Sultan's authorization to comply
with Ralsuli's. demands cannot bo re
ceived for a day or two. If the Sultan
fully acquiesces In the demands, the
release of the captives may be expected
shortly, but that by no means settles
the 'situation, for having twice suc
ceeded in defying Europe and the Sul
tan Ralsuli's success will tempt the
tribesmen to further outrages.
The presence of the American fleet
affords a temporary feeling of security,
but the moment tho lleot Is withdrawn,
unless some permanent form of protec
tion is substituted, the danger will be
come greater than ever. The European
population Is grateful to the Americans
for having promptly sent warships.
Full confidence is felt that the Ameri
can Government will not withdraw
them until some guarantee shall have
been given that Europe recognizes the
situation and demands energetic action.

ORGANIST QUIT I
Gave Recital Despite I
Remarkable Scene in Church H
That Caused Pastor to H
Grow Angry. H
Finally Had to Shut Off Wind of the
Instrument to Make It
NEW YORK, June 5. Loath to part JM
with the organ he had played
regularly for ten years, Harry
Bentley Ridley persisted in grind
ing out patriotic airs at the service in ll
the Protestant Episcopal Church of the
Configuration, at Fulton street and
Railroad avenue, East New York, until fM
a man rushed behind the instrument
and shut off the wind. Gradually the
music fell from a sounding roar to a
cracked sough, and when the organist
finally pressed hjs fingers on the noise
less keys, the rector, Rev. Stuart Crock- JM
ctt, overcame his nervousness and dls
missed the congregation.
Many reports were current of the dif
Terences of opinion between the organist
and the rector about the musical pro
gramme for the service at which the
unexpected incident created excitement
among the worshipers. A few weeks
ago Mr. Ridley resigned his post, main
ly becauso after ten years' faithful and
gratuitous work as organist he had
been rewarded by a request for a. "con
trlbutlon to the fund for a new build
ing. This was his last time at the or
gan. Partly in celebration of the oc
caslon, partly 'ify honor"' of 'Memorial"
day, he had arranged an extensive IH
programme of patriotic airs.
Played as Never Before.
Mr. Ridley started off on his parting
performance when the offering was
taken up. His fingers ran through a
medley of patriotic tunes, from "Amir
ica" to "Marching Through Georgia."
The two collectors, Peter R. Aube, Jr.. jjH
and Henry Boudlnot,. returned to their
scats, but the organ kept on. Work
Ing with hands and feet he rolled out
martial airs in volume so sonorous that IH
the blood of his hearers tingled nnd IH
their feet unconsciously marked time. IH
Minutes passed and still the orgnnlst
kept on. Reaching the end of his rep
erlory, he started to repeat. To a sec-
ond finish the congregation waited pa- jH
tiently; then came another start, and IH
with equal energy. IH
The rector began to grow flgety. lH
Raising his hand he said loudly: "L?t
us pray." If' Mr. Ridley heard he made
no sign, for, despite the call to petition- IH
al devotion, be kept on sounding the IH
pipes in full volume. The congrega- jH
tion knelt, and after a wait of several
minutes rose again, but Mr. Ridley kept IH
The clergyman showed signs of ex- IH
cltement. Beckoning to Mr. Boudinot IH
he whispered in that man's ear. On tip
toe the dignified member of the flock
went to tho organist, touched, him on
DIlUUIUUl U1U JORtu mill ib
playing, Ridley never turned his head. jH
but' kept on doing valiant labor with IH
hands on kej's and feet on pedals. jH
Many of the worshipers were plainly IH
distressed, and. after another whispered
consultation with the Rev. Mr. Crock- IH
ett, Mr. Boudlnot walked quickly be- jH
hind the organ. IH
Dying- of the Strains. IH
A few minutes later there was a no- IH
ticeable diminution in the strength of IH
the music. Mr. Ridley looked up In IH
some surprise, but kept hard at work. H
Slowly the notes lost volume, and with
each falling throb Mr. Ridley seemed IH
to become more energetic. When the IH
pipes groaned Intermittently he still IH
pressed firm fingers on the keys and IH
heavy feet on the pedals, but when a IH
volley of taps brought nothing more jH
than a few despairing squeaks he
dropped his arms by his sides, pulled IH
his feet back and sat still, looking- In- IH
tently at the score on the rack. His
work as organist had come to an end. H
When the Rev. Mr. Crockett was dis- IH
missing tho congregation. Mr. Boudlnot IH
came from behind the organ, gently
douching a handkerchief to his fore- IH
head. Ho had used his strength to IH
good effect in holding down the bel-
lows until the pipes lost wind. After IH
tho service members In the congregation jH
sided with the organist, saying he was IH
merely giving a longer programme on
account of the end of his long term of jH
duty. Mr. Boudinot said he had cut off IH
the" wind to maintain the dignity of H
the church. Mr. Ridley and the rector IH
would not speak about the Incident. H
