In attempting to board a
passenger train on the Rock Island &
Peoria last night at Twentieth street,
Andrew Brown, aged 37, of Orion,
missed his bold and fell under the
wheels, sustaining injuries that neces
sitated the amputation of the left lej
between the ankle and knee.
just now me accident Happened is
not clear. It is said Brown intended
returning home on the No.6 train,
which leaves at 7:35. It is customary
for passenger trains tn the Peoria to
first back up to the Fifth avenue de
pot. This arrangement is supposed
to have confused Brown, and when he
reached the station and saw the train
backing out, not thinking it would re
turn to Twentieth, ran to catcu it. It
was not discovered that an accident
had occurred until the train had
reached Twenty-third street.
Drafted Two Blocks.
It was evident that Brown had been
dragged at least two blocks. The
wonder is that he was not killed.
Members of the train crew carried the
injured man to the Twentieth street
depot and summoned physicians and
tne aumuiance. Mrown was conveyed
to St. Anthony's hospital. The limb
was found to have been terribly mu-
uiaieu. ine operation was performed
by Drs. .1. P. Comegys, C. C. Carter
and J. 11. Hollowbush. Brown was

tomorrow night give to his patrons a
play of which much has been said and
over which a great deal of curiosity
has been aroused, David Belasco's

enal success and business achieved by
this play show that it is undoubtedly
the success in years, and judging
from the vast amount of interest
which has already been manifested,
there is going to be an audience in
attendance to greet this play and
company that will crowd the theatre.
Charles Frohman, who controls this
play, has gotten together a company

ble of playing it in a manner in which
it should be played. The great cast

piece a production worthv of his ar

all places where the company has
boon seen are ail to one etlect, and
that is, that it has given the greatest
amount of satisfaction.

Wallace Pierce, of Geneseo, was to
day awarded fo75 damages against
the Chicago, Bock Island & Pacific
Railway company for false imprison
ment by a jury in the circuit court.
This was the second trial of the case.
At the former hearing a verdict for
$2,000 was given. The verdict was
set aside by the court, who dismissed
as to Michael Carr, a railroad detec
tive, who was named with the com
pany as defendant in the original bill.
The suit was based on the incident
that brought a side-door sleeper tour
of Pierce's to a sudden termination
something over a year ago. He is
said to be a member of a well-to-do
Henry county family. He wanted to
see .he country, but thought buying
railroad pasteboards a needless ex
penditure. He did not tarry to pack
his dress suit case or trunks, but
flagged the first freight that hap
pened through Geneseo.
Nabbed by a Sleuth.
Pierce alighted at Rock Island, hav
ing decided to make his trip by small
jumps, and was making his way to
wards the center of the city when he
was nabbed by Michael Carr, a detec
tive of the railroad company, who
told Pieroe he was under arrest for
the theft of a cushion from a caboose.
The detective was unable to prove his
charge at the preliminary trial and
Pierce was discharged. Thereupon
he was prosecuted for vagrancy, but
failure to sustain this charge again
gave Pierce his freedom.

A Washington dispatch says: "The
assistant secretary of the navy, in his
report on the naval reserve, pays par
ticular attention to the naval militia
organization on the great lakes, and
says that the U. S. S. Michigan,
under command of Lieut. Commander
Winder, was assigned to a course of
drill for these men. The report shows
that the naval militia of Illinois has
79 officers and 446 men, of whom 26
officers and 341 men took part in the
drill; the Michigan naval militia has
23 officers and 285 men, of whom 13
officers and 137 men took part in the
drill; the Ohio militia has 22 officers
and 190 men, of whom 19 officers and
185 men toot part in the drill. The
naval militia of Illinois made the bast
showing. There were two ship's
crews, the first organized in Chicago
and the second from Moline, Rock
Island, Quincy and Alton. The pro
gram of practice was carried out for
three days July 26, '7 and 28. The
report says the men presented were
excellent in appearance at drill and
were well uniformed. The report
'The board did not come person

sufficient time to feel qualified to
mark them on their efficiency. Many
of them were volunteer officers in the
navy during the late war with Spain,

able, and had a fair idea of their
duties. Commander Wilson and
Commander Wiman, commanding the
two ship's crews, were particularly
zealous and efficient. '
