While yesterday morning's outgoing
passenger train waa passing the traesel
work, about four miles from the limits
of the city, It ran over a man who waa,
It Is thought, lying asleep on the track.
Where the man was. lying tho track was
rally fifteen feet from the ground, up
held by timbers over which only the most
fearless would attempt to walk In tho day
time, and upon which only a crasy man
would lie down and go to Bleep. The
cow-catcher tumbled the body along
over the rough timbers for a distance of
twenty or thirty feet, when it, most evi
dently, passed under tho wheels. The
right arm was ground off at the shoul
der and the top of the head was cut off
nearly to the base of the forehead. la
this condition the body dropped through
an opening In tho trussel work, and was
.found lying on the ground below The
timbers and Iron rails were stained and
smeared with blood, brains and frag
ments of flesh for a distance of about
- Judge Corcoran, coroner, was duly ap
prized of tho accident, and, summoning
a Jury, repaired, to tho spot, and held an
Inquest. From papers on the body it
was 'ascertained that the naaacef the
deceased' "wah Herman Krauss, a Ger
man. Letters from' friends In Germany,'
now in the hands of the coroner, 'giye in
timations that the deceased cainefl'of a
respectable family ..and had, at intervals,
received 'considerable sums' of money
from home: " "The Jury came to the eon
clueloB that the deceased bad come to
his death by being run over by the cars
of the Illinois Central railroad, while he
was lylaa; or sitting on the' traek. The

We are not satisfied, In our own mind,
that there has not, In this case, been a
murder committed. This man Krauss
was seen in Cairo on the afternoon pro
ceeding his death, and left town on foot,
following out the line of the railroad.
The letters on his person spoke of remit
tances of money to him.- There was not
a single dime found on his person. Is
there not room for tho conjecture .that
one or more of tho transient thieves and
burglars that Infest Cairo,-followed him
out of town, way-laid him, knocked him
on the head, rifled his pockets, and then
placed tho .body on tho trussel work
.where the care-would wipe out all traces
of their' violence? That a man in his
sober senses, as this man was known to
be, would attempt to walk over, or He
down or sit down, In the darkness of
night, on the trussel work where tbo bo
dy was found, surpasses belief. Further
more, It was not yet sundown when the
stranger was seen within three miles of
the point where his body 'was found.
How happens it that at half past 2 o'clock
the next morning no had made such slow
progress? If we will concede that he
was knocked In the -heed, robbed and
the body placed on the trussel work! all
that k strange and mysterious in the
matter is at once made plain.

About noon, yesterday, officers Cum

from Columbus, Ky., authorizing them
to arrest a colored man named Daniel
Hill, who had, a few minutes before, tak

ed that Hill had committed murder. On
tho arrival of the Anderson ho was tak
en In chargo and conveyed to tho coun
ty Jail. Tho authorities at Columbus
were thon advised of his arrest, and re
turned instructions to hold him.
It seems that, during tho morning,

On four several occasions, yesterday,
we were assured that Mr. Michael Bain
had died at Vicksburg, and that his body
had been brought to Cairo for interment.
Wo saw a lady who was making prepara

In the face of this evidence wo are told
that, yesterday evening, Mr. Bain In
formed a friend that he was not dead.
But the poor, fellow was fhon at death's
door, and at midnight, passed it! He is
now a corpse.
