stantly killed in Moline iaat evening at
6:57 o'clock by engine ,'365 of the St.
Louis passenger train over tbe C..B. & Q., 1
which ia due in this city at 7:18 o'clock.
The accident occurred at about Twen
ty-sixth street in Moline, which is just
inside the eastern city limits, while the
train was running at 35 or 40 miles an
hour. Tbe train was stopped and back
ed up and the mutilated body placed in
the baggage car and brought on into
Moline, where it was turned over to the
police who Immediately notified Coroner
Hawes, who went there at once and im
panelled a jury composed ot Myron Jors
dan, foreman. E 3 ward Dittclsen.A.Mowry,
Noetic btarofsky, Charles Dormoad,
and Louis Leach.
The first witness examined was Engineer
C. F. Horn, who testified that he was
engineer of engine 865 and that while
running at the rate of 35 or 40 miles per
hour, just east of Moline he hail no
ticed a man ahead walking along the side
of the track atd that was when the en
gine was within about one hundred yards
of him, he suddenly stepped upon the
track. Witness immediately sounded
the whistle and reversed his engine, but
the man paid no attention and was struck
a few seconds later. The engineer fur
ther stated that he founded the wh'stle
continuously until the man was s'.rcck
and thai the bell was ringing all the time
as it is operated by steam, and rings
while the engine is in motion. Be stoi pcd
the train soon as possible and backed up,
and tbe unfortunate man was brought to
Moline as before stated. In his opinion
life was extinct when the train men picked
him up. D. C. Wright, fireman of tbe
same engine, was next examine!, his tes
timony being corroborative of Mr Horn's.
After this Undertaker Knox testified as
to the body being taken in charge at the
depot, and the jury returned a verdict as

Although so far W. B. Ferguson is the
only self-announced candidate, there
has been for sometime a growing desire
among tbe laboring classes to have a rep

that Mr. Ferguson's candidacy is meeting
with no enthusiasm, tbe laboring people
believe that with tbe right kind of a man
they can secure representrlion and recogs
nition at this time. Therefore they haye
united upon Gustave Klotz, president of
tbe Rock Island Carpenters' union, as a
candidate and are apt to see to it that be is
elected tomorrow. He is amply qualified
for the position and is a fit representative
of our laboring classes.
