THE VINTON RECORD.
Official Organ of Vinton County.
Seizure of Tobacco.
A seizure of tobacco was
made here last week on infor
mation furni9lied by John P.
Dunkle. Il seems that Mr.
Dunkle had bought of Barbour
& Stout, Cincinnati, a twelve
pound box ot Gilt Edge smok
ing tobacco, purporting to be
done up in iwo ounce packages,
making ninety-six packages to
Ibe box. On opening the box
an odd package was iound, aud
knowing this to be wrong a
count was made when it was
ascertained that there were but
eighty-five packages, each
bearing a two cent stamp,
making $170 in tax. The
weight was found to be lull
twelve pound?, but the revenue
was defrauded by the deficit
of eleven packages, lor which
of course no stamps were used
aud the dealer deprived of
his profit by the same deficit.
Oa ascertaining the condi
lion ot the box Mr. Dunkle
wroto to 13. & S. lor an expla
nation, but the reply being un
satisfactory he reported the
whole matter to Col. B. F.
Coatts, Collector, who caused
the tobacco to be seized. Since
its seizure we have heard it
stated that not only was the
revenue delrauded by the pack
ages fulling short in number,
but that which purpnrled to
have been paid, was only paid
in part, being stamped at six
teen instead ot twenty cents
per pound, so that the while t lie
box should I) live paid legally
2.40,i t paid but 1.70, as before
We pref-iimr- the whole mat
ter will bo investigated by the
United Sta'.es Court. Messrs.
Barbour & Slout have herel -lore
enjoyed a good reputation
us business men, which will be
badly damaged unless a satis
factory explanation can be fur
nislied in a thorough legal examination.
Somk lime aiiico we staled
th at inlormalion had reached
here that I'eurly O. Brown a
former resident ot Mc Arthur
hud left his later residence,
NoMe county, Illinois, leaving
a considerable HUiount ot in
debtedness, and taking with
him about $20000 winch had
beeii entrusted lo him by par
ties to buy stock. Th report
was brought here by 6eveiul
rilizens ot this county who
hud been visiting in Illinois,
was current talk on ttie sirreis
at lite time ol publication, and
was apparently wholly reliable.
Mi. Biown writes us Iroui Yu
ba City, Ciil, and desires us
lo say that the report is untrue
except that he left u consider
able amount of indebtedness
We neglected last week to
notice the tact that a Mr.
Brown, an ex-Sheriff of Jack
son county, that home of Mack
ley and the sanctified, came
over to McArlhur gloriously
drunk, staid so a day or two,
and before he got away, at
tacked Mrs. Ross, a worthy re
spectuble lady with a knile,
givii.g her a slight cut on the
forehead. Sue screamed, when
he broke and ran. lie was ar
rested, put in jail until be was
sober enough for trial, whence
was taxed fine and costs
$3260, for bis little pleasant
ries. As theStandard would say,
hurry up those missionaries.

A Chapter of Accidents.
Last Thursday morning at
2:43 a westward bound freight
train ran into the rear of an
other freight bound iri the
same direction at the cut just
east of Vinton Station, kill
ing Edward Brown, a fire
man who was in the caboose
of the Iront train on his road
to Chillicothe to report for au
ty, and N. M. Mackawaie, a
brake man on the same train.
The altachees of the front train
claim to have been in motion
at a speed ot about eight miles
an hour, when they were struck
by the rear train, which con
trary to the regulations of the
road was running at a speed
probably of thirty or forty
miles per hour, the outside
limits of the regulations bat
ing fifteen miles.
Coming at this rate of speed,
and the morning being so fog
gy that lights could be seen
only at a Bhort distance, there
was no chance to slacken
speed until the rear engine
struck the caboose of the front
train, dashing it to splinters,
and making a jump to the
right bank ol the cut of about
forty feet, when the weight of
the heavy train forced it com
pletely around until it faced
toward Zileski, (he point they
were coming from, and bury
ing Brown aud Muckawaie in
Brown was gotten out in a
short time, but Mackawaie
was under the locomotive,
which was lying on its side
against the bank in such a way
that it was impossible to re
move him until it could be
lifted olT of him. The engine
belonging to the wrecking par
ly, having been dispatched to
Zileski for tools, bad some ol
its machinery disabled, aud
hud to slop until about six
o'clock in the evening for re
pain. In the meantime a
Uniporary truck was built
around the wreck to pass pas
senger trains, and a large
crowd of citizens two hun
dred, or more gathered at the
Wliilo awaiting the arrival
ol the engines from Zaleski,
and fearful ot accidents to
some of the crowd Irom break
ing of ropes and chains in lilt
ing the locomotive, Messrs
Lankester and Moshtr, who
hud charge of the working
party, caused them to talk as
though they were going to
jU t work until next morning,
hoping the report would thin
out ttie crowd. It did to a
small extent, hut those remain
ing became rather demonstra
tive, and indulged in some
very wild and foolish threats
ol what liny would do unless
the body of Mackawie was im
mediately removed from the
wreck. In due time the loco
motive arrived, the disabled
one was removed, the body re
covered, and ve presume oar
demonstrative friends congrat
ulated themselves on a victory.
A little knowledge on the
part of the citizens of the
mode of the company in clean
up wrecks would have bottled
all their excitement. A party
working at a wreck never quits
it for rain, snow, heat, cold,
darkness or bllier cause until
the last Splinter is refiloved.
In this base it was after one
o'clock the next morning be
fore the party quit work.
The bodies of the men were
apparently but little bruised.
Brown was sent to Athens,
where he was placed in charge
of an undertaker and prepared
to be sent to his friends iu Col.
umbus. Mackawai's body was
similarly trerted at Chillicothe
for removal to Philadelphia.
Everything was done in care
and removal that it was possi
ble to do.
Mackawaie had $67 04 in his
pocket. The Democratic Coro
ner ot Vinton county was pres
ent, and, we are informed, had
indulged too freely in the ard
ent for his own good, tie
kindly volunteered to take
charge ol the money, but Mr.
Lankester quietly Informed
ftnrj i but fi4 "didn't thilk ha
would; that the company
would be responsible lor its
sate transmittal td his friends.
We have strung out the ac
count of this acciderit to con
siderable length because there
are a thousand erroneous rum
ors ailnat in regard to the mat
ter, and becausb the Enquirer
in its account of the accident,
without hav.ng the courage to
name him, casts unjust reflec
tions upon Mr. Lankester. Mr.
L is a gentleman of fine feel
ing, has worked for the M. &
C. company a number of years
in almost every position, is
popular with all the employ
ees, with whom he stands num
ber one as a clever, humane
Ou the day following Ibe
above described accident, a
buggy upset at Vinton Station
with Win. bry and Edward
Clark. Mr. Clark was pretty
badly hurt aud is still confined
to his bed. .
On the same day Mr.Stottle
meyer, the manufacturer of the
Bitters of tlm name, a kind of
a medicated whisky, careless
ly stepped off the Ireigh t plat
form at llamden and broke his
On Saturday night as Mr.
Tibbet, one of the traveling
tgents for the Champion Mow
ing Machine, was driving from
the Station in company with
Mr. Nelson llichoi'ind, the
team ran away, starting on the
hill just this side of the Station
and stopping in front of the
McArlhur House. The horses
were badly bruised and the
buggy a perfect wreck.
On Monday Mr. Tibbets in
company with Alf. Sry 'started
for McArlhur Station, but the
team ran away, throwing Mr.
T. out, bruising him consider
ably, so that he has been co; -fiued
to his room most of the
time since. This makes five
accidents to life and limb in
our county during the past
week rather more than our
Attention is directed to the
