HAD LOST HIS HATl
William P. Brindle Was Reaching
Under Train for Headgear
SEEN BY A SMALL BOY
Wheels of Last Coach Crushed Out
Life Funeral Services Held from
Home This Afternoon.
An endeavor to recover his hat
which had blown under the Sf. Paul
passenger train, and beins; caught un
der the wheels, according to the testi
mony at the coroner's inquest at 9
o'clock this morning, was the manner
in which William P. Brindle. 620 Thirty-eighth
street, met his horrible death
Saturday noon. T. Gait Brindle in his
testimony at the inquest stated that a
child who resided in the vicinity where
the accident occurred, was an eye wit
ness . but was so rngnreneu tnai ne
was unable to give a detailed account.
His talk with the boy developed the
fact that Mr. Bindle's hat was blown
under the train and he was caught un
der the wheels when he attempted to
reach for it. the last truck of the
smoking car and the last coach passing
over hi body.
Sob San .-r!lef.
Gait Brindle also Ftated that he left
the office of the Rock Island Sash &
Door Works, where he is employed, a
few minutes before noon and boarded
the. train which passed at that time.
He saw his father, but did not recog
nize him. Having witnessed several
such accidents previously, he paid no
further attention to the affair. He did
not inform the members of the family
of the accident at dinner and return
ing to his work, he passed through the
yards. Just before reaching the office
he was? informed by a crowd of rail
road men in conversation, that some
one had been killed and was also given
a description of the victim. Then for
the first time he feared that the victim
was his father. I'pon reaching the of
fice he received a telephone message
from B. F. Knox who requested him to
come lo the undertaking rooms. Mr.
Brindle is prostrated with grief at his
home as a result of the accident.
OiMMwrrrd by Wutchnmn.
Ernest Frisk, who is employed at
the Rock Island Lumber company, who
was the first to discover the remains,
stated that he was standing in a box
car at the time the train passed at the
the foot of Twenty-eighth street, it be-
trahi had passed ho heard groans indi
cating that someone was injured. In
vestigating, he found Mr. Brindle lying
across the tracks, dead. 0
After the completion i of the testi
mony the coroner's jury returned a
verdict of death as a result of being
run over by a Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul passenger train.
