Thomas Kane, a freight conductor
for the Rock Island road, met a horri
ble fate at Joliet last night, falling
from the top of a ear onto the track,
and the wheels passing over him and
almost completely severing his I tody.
The accident occurred at 11:30
while Conductor Kane's train was
pulling out of Joliet. westbound, with
Kngineer Connelly at the throttle.
Just liow the unfortunate man was
sent to his tragic ileath will nrolallv
never lie known, as the uicmliers of
the crew all say they did not know of
the accident until the ImhIv was found
oji the track after the merciless wheels
had done their tcrriltle work. Mr.
Kane, according to the liest informa
tion that can be gained here, was
standing on top of one of the cars,
and the supposition is th:tt a sudden
jolt of the train overbalanced him.
Tom Kane had a wide acquaintance
among the railroad men, by whom he
wa known, a- one of them put it, as
'one of the linest and best hearted of
fellows." lie sjtent his earlier years
at Colona. At the time of the Bur
lington strike he was a lireman for
that company. He gave up his situa
tion anil secured employment as a
brakeman on the Rock Island. About
four years ago he was promoted to
conductor. He was running between
Rock Island and Blue Island.
Had Decided to Ho Into Iltntliiean.
He had often expressed a desire to
go into business for himself. He re
cently entered into a partnership with
his father-in-law, who runs a bot
tling establishment at Blue Inland,
and was torjuit railroading March 1.
lint the hand of fate decreed that he
should not enter upon the independ
ent life it had so long been his am
bition to enjoy.
Air. Kane is" survived by a wife and
child, who live in Blue Island.

Queer Practical Jokes.
Sam Mattison, of the Milwaukee de
pot force, was recently made the sub
ject of a peculiar, and it would ordi
narily be considered, mortifying prac
tical joke. A few afternoons ago a
mes-age came to The Aitm s tr the
effect that Mr. Mattison had been mar
ried in a Wisconsin town, and while
there appeared no reasonable ground
to doubt the correctness of the infor
mation, the authority for it was un
known, ami is still unknown to The
Aitci'S, and hence publication of it
was deferred until it could be verified.
Naturally Mr. Mattison was regarded
as the one to give the correct particu
lars and a reporter was sent to him
the following day; lie unhesita-
tinirly conurmed the announce
ment, jrivinjr the name of a
lady from Wisconsion as his bride.
The item was published with Mr.
Mattisons authority, but it now ap
pears, strange as it may seem, that
Mr. Mattison, instead of accepting the
spirit with which the reporter went
to him, simply abetted in carrying
out the joke ou himself, and adding to
it absurdity. It has since been
learned that there was no truth in
the story of the marriage, whatever,
and Mr. Mattison should in a peculiar
degree recognize the justice of a
The moral of all this is that people
who concoct jokes or'purposely aid in
circulating them should not attempt
to work the newspapers.
