John Clayton Killed near Tunnel
Last Monday morning
On Monday morning last an BMtbound
freight train struck John Clayton about
a railo from the tunnel and run over
him. .1. C. Davis, tho engineer did nil
lw- could to stop the train when he dis
cowered the man but a-t this part of the
road bed is on a descending grade it is
not possible to stop heavy trains easily.
From ull that can be learned, Clayton,
who with two other men, Dailey and
Peterson, was working on iho section
gang and had been sent down tho line
to clean out some switches. They heard
the train coming and Dailey and Peter
son scrambled up on the snow, which is
about live feet deep and forms what
would be called a cut, only that, there is
no room between the walls and the cars
for a body. Clayton did not try to get
out of the cut but ran ahead of the
train probably thinking it would stop.
Peterson escaped uninjured and Dai
ley's injuries only amounted to bruises.
The remains of Clayton were brought
here anil buried under tlft direction of
Dr. Hoxsey on Tuesday.
John Clayton belonged to the (lot-am
and jetsam of humanity, lie was one
of that vast army o( men that are con
stantly going from one place to another
working a few days here and next week
turning 1 up in another stale. A good
man, doubtless, as many of them ate,
but with that roving spirit which lias
possessed so many men, he could not
abide long in a place. He was about
thirty-eight years old and had worked
about a week or ten days on the fang.
Left no property. Not even a valise.
Nothing was found on his person to
give a clue by which his friends or re
lations could be found saw a small
memorandum book in which he bad
kept his time and store account. His:
name was not even found. John Cliiy
ton wtw the name which he had giveu
to the timekeeper. On one leaf of the
memorandum book was written in a
good bauid. "Tom Fagan, GU O4th St ,
oil Mission, S»n Francisco, Cala."
Dr. Hoxsoy has written to the above
address giving the facts, with a faint
hope that in this way his relatives may
be found and advisoJ of his death and

Miss A. Grace Gill, Leavenworth*i
popular primary teacher, has tendered
her resignation to the board of school
directors to take effect March Ist. Miss
Gill resigns her position to lake charge
of her father's General Merchandise
store in Scio, Oregon. She regrets very
much to give up her school, especially
in the middle of the term, as she loves
the little ones whom she has been with
for two years and is greatly attached to
the primary work, but as her father is
advanced in years and no longer able
to handle the business and is unwilling
to trust it in tho hands of anyone except
''Grace,"' therefore she feels it her duty
as a daughter to submit. The board of
education deeply regrets the loss of such
an able instructor likewise the parents
of the little ones and in fact the town
in general will miss her in more ways
than one as no social function was com
plete without her.
