The following is the substanoe of
testimony taken by Justice Gallagher
yesterday in the killing of C&ptaiu N.
T. Sneed Ilepctitioos and unimpor
tant details have been eliminated.
P. W. Sterliog was the first witness
to testify. IHb testimony was princi
pally about finding tho body the ex
tent of the wounds and bones broken
Ho did not sec tho aocident.
The next witness was Henry Jones
foreman of section 33 of tho Missouri
Kansas and Texas railway, was work
ing on mile 07S about nine tolegraph
poles north of the crossing where tho
accident took plaoe. I saw the aoci
dent. I eaw deceased drive up on
said crossing about fifteen minutes
beforo the accidpnt Ho was in a
single buggy and after dmicg on tho
crossing ho stopped there four or five
minutes, or his horso stood there.
About the time his horsu got on tho
crossing I heard a looal train whietlc
at Hewitt. The crossing was about a
milo and a half from Hewitt. I then
saw deceased back off of tho crossing
and after he got off of tho dump he
turned towards the north and towards
me. He drove off about one hundred
or one hundred and fifty feet
from the traok He Btaycd there
about ten minutes. He was about
four minutes getting on tho track and
backing off. I did not see deceased
drive back to tho traok. I Haw the
train (passenger No. 3,) camo down
the hill about a mile and a half north
of where I was, I did not seodeeeasod
that I recollect after he backed off the
track until he was 6truok by tho train.
The train was going south aud about
two hours late. I saw tho train sttiko
his buggy and saw tho horse run off.
I saw the buggy fly up and saw de
ceased's hat. 1 looked to seo deceas
ed got up and as he did not I ran
down there. The train backed up
and got there at tho sumo time I did.
The body waB on the west side ot
the track and about twenty or twenty -
five yards from crossing and about
eighteen or twenty feet from tho track.
I don't know how fast tho train was
going but should guess at about thirty
miles per hour, lheaidnoboll ring
ing or whistling until aftor tho acci
dent. I do not remember it." The
balance oi the testimony was relativo
to the speed of tho train and what dis
tance it could bo stopped in and of
conversation with passengers.
W. II. Tobin, conductor of tho
passenger train next testified to see
ing the ueoeabeu alter tno train nau
stopped and backed to the crossing.
He did not see the aocident. Tho
rest of tho testimony
was relative to the grade
on whioh tho accident ooourred
and as to what distanoo tho train
could be stopped,
Nelson Taylor a section hand sworo
that he saw the enginoer on the right
side of the engine lookiDg ahead and
that no whistle was sounded or bell
The principal part of tho testimony
of .Tas. Kioe another section haDd was
was that theio was no signal of danger
The testimony of (Jbas. Josbhn
was about tho samo as that of the
other section hands.
John W. DenBon, who was working
in a field near where tho accidoDt oc
curred deBoribcd it in detail nearly
as the foreman of tho section gang.
There wore no material difference.
J. M. Glaze next testified. His
testimony was substantially tho Bamo
as tho abovo.
T. W. Hammond, engineer of tho
passongeer train, next testified. After
telling about the lateness of tho train
and tho time ot tno aooiuem, no cam;
"Tho train was running about twenty
fivo miles an hour and whon wo were
200 or 250 feet from
where tho accident oocurrcd I
saw a man drive up to tho crossing
not on to it, and stop. When the
train was within seventy five or ono

hundred feet of said crossing tho
horse started across tho traok. When
the horso got on the traok he stopped
and when I got within twenty or
thirty feet tho driver of tho buggy
stood up straight in tho buggy raised
his lines and slapped his horse on tho
back and tho horso gavo ono jump
and oloarcd the track leaving the
buggy on the track. My impression
is that the horso pulled himself clear
of tho buggy this whb just beforo tho
engine struck tho bugg. 1 whistled
as soon as 1 saw tho man oomo up to
the crossing, that was when wo wero
200 or j!50 feet from tho crossing.
Deceased was about twenty
feet from tho track "vhon I first saw
him. I whistled a regular
crossing whistle four times when I
first saw tho deocascd, when I was
about 250 feet away. I judge that
decoased could havo heard tho whistle
at the distance he was. I think that
deceased could not havo heard the
whistle at a greater distance than 250
feet. I did not ring tho b( 11.
I mado no effort to stop tho train until
I was seventy five or one hundred
feet from tho orCHsmg. 1 did no
whistling exoopt for the orofsing 250
feet away Tho horso stopped as I
whistled. I did not tell Mr. Morton
Smith that I saw tho deceast-d in timp
to stop the train but did not stop be
oauso 1 thought ho would orosa.
W. M. Darwood fireman of tha
train testified that ho did not seo tho
accident as ho was putting in coal at
the time. Know nothing of it until
after I heard tho crossing whistlo and
tho engineer put on brakes. His tes
mony on tho wholo concided with that
of the engineers.
