The unfortunate boy was employed
as a section hand and had been
with the. company for four months.
He was about 16 years of age. He
was engaged in shoveling cinders
from between the rails at the foot
of Sixteenth street, when a freight

he was working. He evidently had

An inquest was held this morning
at the Wheelan undertaking parlors
by Coroner R. C. J. Meyer. The ques
tion of whether or not the young man
was killed by a flying switch, which
it is alleged it is not permitted under
the state law was discussed at con
siderable length after the witnesses
were heard. It was decided to bring
in a blank verdict, however, finding
that the boy died from being run over
