Mm Who Meets Death on First Avenue
la Not IdentltteO.
Dying from injuries received under
the -wheels of a St. Paul freight -train
on which he is supposed to have been
riding, an unidentified man was found
lying on the D., R. I. & N." W. passing
track near Fifteenth street last night
about 9:40. His cries attracted the
yard men, who. hurried to the place.
The man had been literally cut to
pieces under the wheels, his left leg
having been severed at the hip, the
right nearly cut off Just below the hip,
and entirely severed between the knee
and the ankle, his left arm entirely sev
ered just above the wrist, and almost
completely cut from the body at the
shoulder. The Index finger of the right
hand was amputated by the wheels,
and the entire, body except the head
and face was liarked with bruises.

Tried to Tell Identity.
When found by the yard men, the
dying man was asked his name, how
he came to be injured, where he board
ed the train, and where he resided. In
answer he mumbled some words, and
though he tried several times, he could
not make himself understood by those
standing about. The only word that
could be distinguished was "Moline,"
and was part of his answer to the
query as to where he boarded the train
and where he lived. Coroner Eckhart
who was notified at once, set to work
immediately in an effort, through the
police of Rock Island and Moline, to
learn, if possible, the man's name, but
no clew has been found to his identity.
The remains were viewed today by
members of the police department of
the two cities and by a great number
of people, but no one has yet recogniz
ed the man.

or. Mr. Nesbitt was first attracted by
the man's cries, and on finding the in

of the switch crew stated that they

train, when it had passed them in the
upper yards. The train was west
bound, and went onto the passing
track to allow the St. Paul east bound
passenger train to pass. The freight
train consisted of over 50 cars. It

At the session yesterday afternoon
W. M. Morrisey, city attorney of Jack
sonville, in discussing the question of
public improvements took the position
that all of the special assessment laws
should be wiped off from the statute
books because they are, inadequate and

It Is practically a settled fact that
the long hoped for extension and im
provements in the Sisters of the Visi
tation academy, the Villa de Chantal,
will be made the present season.
The plans decided upon and upon
which Dean Quinn has been working
with the sisters, contemplate an outlay
of $30,000, and will insure an Immense
seminary to which the present building
will be an annex.
The main structure will be ideal in
every respect for a girl's school of the
highest order, as it Is indeed, today,
notwithstanding its limited accommo
dations. There will be the most mo
dern dormitories, study and class and
music rooms, assembly hall and chapel,
while the building now used, although
new, will not be used so much for
strictly school purposes as for the
rooms and accommodations of the sis
ters and for special studies.
A tirowlnic Inwtltutlon.
The villa has gradually 'grown since
its removal from Maysville, Ky., to
Rock Island, although attended by
much hardship, until it has become one
of the best known educational Institu
tions in the west. No more beautiful
site exists for the location of such a
school, and through the unceasing toil
on the part of the sisters, the grounds
have been steadily beautified and the
main aim toward which every aim. has
been directed is the building which is
now all but assured.
The mother and the directoress of
the institution have since the close of
the school made a number of visits to
Bishop Spalding at Peoria, who is ar
ranging to finance the project and are
in Peoria today in hopes of securing
