Body to Be Shipped to Home in Port
Stanley, Canada, for
This morning Coroner I V. Eckhart
conducted an inquest over the body of
Harvey J. Payne, who died yesterday
afternoon at St. Anthony's hospital
from injuries received in an accident
on the Rock Island railway near Green
River Nov. 8.
The jury, after examining the train
crew, returned a verdict that deceased
met his death in an accident, due to a
stock car which fouled the passing
From the evidence it was shown that
the train crew had no notice of the
car's being in the way, not clear of
the track, and it appeared further that
it was the operator's duty to notify
the crew of such an obstruction. As
it could not be shown that the opera
tor was aware of the position of the
car. no blame was fixed by the jury.
Burial to Hr to Cnnnda.
Payne was 23 years of age, and had
been a resident of this state for about
two years. The body was turned over
to E. Parkhurst, a friend of deceased.
and will be sent to Port Stanley, Can

and sister living at Port Stanley, and
one brother and a sister at Detroit,

RACE FOR GOVERNOR
Chicago. Nov. 10. President Roose
velt and Charies S. Deneen set a high
water mark in pluralities in Illinois
for presidential year. With a total
vote that fell GS.Ooo short of that cast
in l&OO. when President William Mc
Kinley carried the state by JM.924.
President Roosevelt swept the state
and when the polls closed he had a
plurality of 2C5,0n0.
Mr. Deneen. who. it had been pre
dicted, would run behind the presi
dential ticket, kept alongside of Mr.
Roosevelt, who must have felt the
strenuous pace and tired, because1
when the day was over Mr. Deneen
was l.OiM) votes ahead of the presi

presidential ticket and of Mr. Deneen.

tention of boosting the vote for their
party as high as possible.
