One of tho most distressing acoi
dents that has happened in MoLennan
county for years was the killing of
Captain N. T. Snced yesterday after
noon. Captain Snecd had beon in tho
city on business and was returning to
his homo near Hewitt. Not far from
home he had to cross tho Missouri,
Kansas and Toxas traok. .las
as he got near the track he
heard a train coming and whipped up
his horso a intonding to cross boforo
tho train oamc but seeing that suoh at
proceeding would bo dangerous ho
stopped his toani a short distanco
from tho track. The
horses became frightened as
thoy raw the train approaching and
endeavored to dash aoross tho traok in
front of tho locomotive. Captain
Sneed failed in his endeavor to stop
the frightened horses and tho buggy
was dircotly on the track when tho
engine arrived at the crossing. Before
ho oould jump or the engineer could
stop the train the buggy was hit by
rapidly moving looomotivo and com
pletely wreoked. Captain Sneed was
thrown a considerable distance. He was
instantally killed. His nock, ribs and
logs were brokon, in fact,
there was hardly a wholo bone in his
body. Friends wore not wanting and
his muLgled rerua'ns werosoon carried
to his home and hia son, Mr. A. C.
Sneed and many other relatives of
this city wore notified.
The irain which caused tho deadly
work wan the south bound passenger
which was flvinc along at a rato
much faster than usual on aooount of
being two hours late. They were try
ing to mako up timo. Tho crow of
No. 3 was Conductor Tobin and Engi
Captain Sneed earned hie title in
active servioe, ho was captain of Com
pany E. Buferds regimont and served
in tho Trans Blississippi Department
in Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas.
From its organization ho was an hon
ored member ot Pat Cleburne Camp.
He has beon a citizen of Texas for
many years coming horo when a
yonngman and helping to rcolaim the
state from tho wilderness, fighting tho
Indians to protect his loved ones Ho
has many relatives in all parts of tho
state though most of them live in
BIcLennan, Hill and Limestone
His son. Mr. A. C Snoed, is a well
known, and DOnular mcrohant of
Waco ftB aro also his nephews the
Messrs Hill Bros.
The funeral services took place this
afternoon at 2 o'clock at tha Fifth
Street Methodi6t church and tho in
terment at Oakwood at 3:30 o'clook.
In tho funeral services Dr.
Bourland, his pastor, took
accasion to pay a very high tributo to
When in 1851 Itov. Joseph Spend,

Tho oulogy pronounood by Dr.
Bourland was splendid indeed, and

Sneed over knov of his
many kind deeds and
thn manv noor that will riso up and
call him blessed. Ho lived up to tho
injunction "Let not your right hand

A THREATENED INJUNCTION.
Restraining the Hobson Line From
Crossing: the Plaza.
Thero was a meotinij at tho city
hall this morning of business mon
doing business on tho plaza to object
to tho Hobson Lino laying track
across tho plaza.
They proposed to suo out an in
jucotion but decided to await tho re
sult of tho committee oppointcd by tho
oity oouncil to see if a compromise
oould bo effeoted by whioh both linos
could use tho traok on tho north sido
of the plaza.
Tho outcoino will be watoued with

doomed to opposition and porsccution

This is the only ocean vessel ever in

As the attendant!) aBoondcd tho stair
way a News reporter notioed that thoy
were composed ot citizens and fanners,
affording a presumption in favor of
tho opinion that the city and tho
county were in oonbultation about
faame heavy mattora. Of the residents
of Dallas who aucendod tho stairs
thero woro some who havo boon
closoly idontifted with tho labor movo
mont in Dallas for many, many years,
and soma who were on the
othor sido of tho question.
Both Senator Kimbrough and Hon.
John II. Coohran woro present. While
tho oaucus wan in session a Nows
reporter knoukid at the door and
asked if tho attending Hovoroignty
wished to havo tlioir proceedings re
ported. The sontinel ropliod in tho
negative. While this was transpiring
a voioo that Bounded vory much liko
that of J. 0. Patton, was exclaiming,
"if wo put a senator and representa
tive in tho field wo will injuro Gov.
Hogg. Tho governor has onough to
oarry in Dallas county without being
handicapped by candidates for tho
legislature." Ab this remark did not
evoke applause it looked as if tho
oauous by a largo majority was com
mitted to tho policy of bringing out
Hogg oandidatcs for tho legislative
office. It IB also fair to prcsumo from
tho mixed attondnnoo that tho alato
included a farmer's representative, a
