e 'by lrpay Coroner
Shortly after 6 o'clock on m Wednesday
evening some stone masons returning
from work in Moline to their homes in
this city discovered the body of a man
on the west bound C R I. & P. track
near Sixth street, Moline, who had evi
dently been ran down by a passing train
not a great while before. The police of
that city were immediately notified and
the body was taken to the police station
and the coroner notified. Deputy Coroner
L. V. Eckhart went immediately to Mos
line and impanneled a jury consisting of
E. J. Baldwin, foreman. Edward Kitiil-
sen, A. Howry, Thomas B. Kearney, D
E. Dean and Charles Dorman. Te
names of the workmen who bad found
the body being unknown the inquest wss
adjourned until yesterday morning at 10
The dead man was a stranger to every
one and the police were unable to estab
Iish his identity, as there was nothing on
his person to indicate who be wa?. Early
yesterday morning, however, Otto An
dren, who resides on Railroad avenue
and ' Sixth street, Moline, called
at the station and identified the dead
man as his brother, Claus Andren,
who was employed as a grinder
at the Deere & Mtnsur company's works
He had quit work shortly after 5 o'clock
and it la supposed tbat while crossing the
tracks at Sixth street on his way to his
brother's where he b3arded.be wag struck
by a Rock Island 6witch ergine which
was backing down about that time, and
as it was quite dark he was cot discov
ered until sometime later. The first wit
ness examined at the irq-iest was Mis
cbael Boltz, who testified that be was en
gineer on C, R. I. & P. switch engine
No 1, and that about 5,30 o'clock on the
previous evening they had backed down
from Moline to Rock Ialacd. He saw no
one on or near the tracks, and did not
know tbat hia engine had passed oyer
anyone. He further testified tbat they
had three cars ahead of and one behind
the ergine, and that there was a man on
the bead car with a light and also one on
the rear car. Witness testified further
that when at Sixth street Moline they met
an east bound freight, which he thought
was No. 93. He had examined the en
gine and cars, bat found nothing to indi
cate that a man hai been run over.
Thomas Pender, foreman of the switch
crew was also on the engine with witness.
Boltz als testified to having seen the
dead man, but that be had never to his
knowledge seen him alive.
Tbe next.witness examined was Peter
Jencen, a switchman, who testified to be
ing on the csr ahead when tbe
switch engine backed down to Rock Isl
and, but saw no man on or near the track
and bad no knowledge of the accident.
He further atated that tbe bell on the en
gine was ringing and that they were runs
ning at the rate of about six miles an
Thomas Kiltila, another switchman
being next examined, to'd substantially
the same story as tbe other train men and
also stated tbat be felt a slight jtr when
tbey pasted Sixth street, but paid no
further attention to it. He also corrobo
rated the first witness in regard to the ex
amination of tbe engine.
Thomas Pender, the foreman of tbe
switch crew, was next ex trained and bis
testimony was corroborative of the pro
ceeding witnesses, and in his opinion tbe
man might have been struck by tbe east
bound freight which was psssing at the
vviiiiam oeicning, oi rem, ill., a
stonemason in the employ of theC, R. I.
& P., was then examined and testified to
his discovering the body when'going from
Rock Island to Moline on a hand car in
company with a companion, James
Whalen, and to remaining with the body
whiie WhaUn notified the authorities.
Tbe man was dead when first found by
witness. James Whalen corroborated tbe
testimony of tht witness just examined,
after which Otto Andrea was placed upon
tre stand and testified that the dead man
was his brother, Claus Andren. and age J
25 years, a single man, and had been in
this ooun try about 18 months. He last
saw his brother alive Wednesday morning
at 10 o'clock, but knaw nothing as to now
he came to his death.
The jury retired and shortly after re
turned a verdict as follows:
We, the undersigned jurors, sworn to
inquire into the death of Claus Andren
on oatb,do find that he came to his death
by being run over by a train of three cars
attached ahead of switch engine No. 1,
of the C, R. I & P. railwav which
train was being backed westward toward
Rock Island at about 5:30 p.m. Wed
nesday, Nov. 25, 1801, the deceased being
strucK at toe oixtn si reel crossing, in tbe
city of Moline. county of Rock Island
and state of Illinois. We, the jury, fur-
iner nna tnai me saia Ubicago. Kock Isl
and & Pacific railway company is guilty
of gross negligence in permitting trains
to be run through tbe city with box
freight cas abeud of the engine. We, the
jury, also recommend that the cltv coun
cil of the city of Moline pass an ordinance
proniniiing tne running of trains through
the city as aforesaid; and further, that it
require fl&gmen.to be placed at the street
crossings or tne city Dy me raiiroaa com

A large audience witnessed Miss Anna
Eva Faj 'a feats on spiritual mediumlsm
at Harper's theatre last evening. A nam
ber of experiments were given, with tbe
medium in a cabinet, tbe entertainment
as a whole being highly enjoyed, the lady
at times displaying almost superhuman
powers in her control of apparent ob
jects about her, and which she manipu
lated with hands and head bound. A
number of citizens who were invited cn
the stage pronounced the experiments all
that they were represented to be, and de
clared Miss Fay to be a woman of mar-
velously wonderful gifts.
Dockslader's minstrels at the Burtis at
Dayenport drew large audiences, in wh'ch
Rock Island waa well represented in the
afternoon and evening yesterday. The
entertainments were highly enj iyed, the
organization being one of the best on tbe
At Harper's theatre Monday night Miss
Lottie Williams will appear as "Raga" in
the comedy drama of city life, "New York
DaybyDiy." The Louisville Jo.rnal
says of the production:
Over 2,000 people witnessed
the production of 'New York Day by
uay, at mis popular place or amuse
ment and evinced their delight by tbe
wildest eninusistic applause- Miss Wil
liams was the bright particular star, and
was well worthy of the applause bestowed
upon ber. The magnificent scenery, rep
resenting Harlem Bridge, the Burning
Canal Boat, the Death of Mother Cant
well the Battery in 1868, the Footpad's
Home, caused, at icterva s, outbursts of
applause from the rise to the fall of tbe
curtain. The company deserves espeml
n.ention, every member being a feature,
and their admirable acting was pleasing.
This company is a rare one no sticks
no useless people. Taking all in all it is
one of the best entertainments yet given
at this bouse.
