both left helpless families, ot six children

the other an insane husband made so by
tlie unfaithfulness of her who
promised to "love and honor"

that execration which their baseness so
justly merits. Stackhouse is a large

TZKEIZLS ACCIDMT. .
Awtal JhaaiSi af Hllaa oetrwnaer,
One of ths most terrible and sickening
accidents that ha taken place In this
city occurred on the Cairoand Vlneenneg
rallraad at Twentieth street, yesterday
tOrniag 'about ten o'clock, by which
Silas Ostrander, yardmastcr for that
road, come to an untimely and awlul
Ostrander had been in the yards during
the morning, and bad complct! making
up, a train of freight cars, several of
which were to be brought to the lower
end ol town to be unloaded. The rear
car of the train, the draw-head having
been pulled out, was fastened to the
other cars by a large log chain. -When
near Twentieth street, coming down, the
engineer Increased the speed of the train,
as is tlie usual custom, la order to girt
upthegTade, when the chain wflkh was
some six feet long, slacked up and
dragged on the rails, and the car wheels
ran over It, throwing the car off the track
bottom side up, making a total wreck
of It, and pulling the next car off the
rail after it. , Ostrander was sitting on
the leant end of tlie sacntal . carlrorn the
rear of the train, and feeling -the Jar,
jumped up and attempted to run for
ward, and losing hi footing fell between
the second and third cars to the track.
Six pairs of wheels passed over his body
before the engineer could stop the train,
mangling and cutting tbe flesh from the
bones ot the unfortunate man to shreads.
The only words Ostrander uttered after
the train struck him were, "For God's
sake take me out.'' He was carried
away from the track and expired in a
t'oroner Gosman was summoned and
held an inquest over the body, when the
following testimony, which we publish
in justice to tlie railroad company, was
Tony Kapps, engineer of the train, was
sworn by Justice Cotntnings and said:
"I was'on the engine when the accident
occurred. We started from tlie yard
where the cars were weighed with seven
cars. We left ono at Twentieth street,
aud pulled out over the switch. Mr. Os
trander shut the switch, with the inten
tion of taking the other six down town.
We went faster at Twentieth street; was
running probably eight or ten miles an
hour. Ostrander was ou the rear end
of the car. 1 felt the jar aud saw a man
fall.and stopped as quick as I could. I went
back and looked, and found it was Os
trander, who said : 'Help me out !' We
helped him out and brought the section
men from up the road, and then sent tor
Mr. Morrill aud a doctor. The train ran
probobly four car lengths after I felt the
jar. We ran about twelve car lengths
from the switch before the car lumped
the track. The car that ran off bad a
broken draw-head and was chained to
the others. There was no other man on
the tram. Ostrander was acting as
brakeman. It is the custom to chain
cars in this way when there is auything
wrong with the draw-head.
iJ.C. Callahan wstsaom and tea tilled :
I am a shoemaker; I was looking at the
train when tbe accident happened. When
the car ran off the track, saw Ostrander
try to grab tke brake ; he lost his footing
in trying to run from the second to the
third car, and fell between them. 1 do
not know what caused the train to run
off. Ostrander died before I could get
to him. He was taken from the track
and died in four or five minutes. He was
unable to talk. I picked up scraps of
bone and flesh after they carried him
Leonard W. Harvey, cur repairer for
tlie road, was sworn and said : All the
cars were in good condition nut one,
which was being brought down to have a
drawhead put in. 1 did not see the acci
dent. Ostrander knew the condition of
the cars. He could not have weighed
the cars without knowing. He could
not have made up the train without
Richard Powers, track foreman, was
sworn : The track was in a good and safe
condition. I did not see the accident.
Th3 jury, after listening to the evi
dence, convinced that the misfortune was
purely accidental, rendered a verdict in
substance, as follows:
We. the undersigned jurors, sworn to
inquire ot the death of Silas Ostrander,
on oatli do find that he came to Ids death
by an unavoidable accident on the Cairo
and Vincennes railroad, near Twentieth
street, in the city ot Cairo.
The deceased was about thirty-five
years of age, has a wife and a son about (
twelve years old. who have been making
their home in Vincennes, but who were
at the time of his death in Xew York
state visiting the relatives of Mrs. Os
trander. Letter S.las.
