Coroner Hawes was summoned to
Fort Byron yesterday to hold an in
quest on the remains of A. D. Miller
of that place, w hose body was found
on the railroad tracks and in front of
the Milwaukee depot there, at 8
o'clock yesterday morning, by Ed.
O'Brien a laborer who w as walking
I along the railroad track. There was
nothing about the, body to indicate
that it had been run over by the cars,
and from the testimony obtained no
train had passed along since Mr.
Miller had come to the place where
found, and where he died apparently.
The body was found lying " its back
with the h cad towards the south.
There was a contusion under the left
eve, and another near the right cor
ner of the mouth. The hands were
clinched and there were evidences in
the sand near by of the man having
dragged himself or having been drag
ged along to the place where found.
The clothing was wet. though par

No DintiiM-t l: iilence of V iolence.
The contusion noted, the doctor
said could have occurred from a fall
on a projecting rock, as well as from
a blow. A superficial examination
revealed no distinct marks of v io
lence, however. The probable cause
of death, the doctor held, was from
exposure to cold and wet. While the
evidence submitted went to show
that the marks in the sand near bv
were made by the man in supporting
himself, there were those who held
to the belief that there may have
been foul play, notwithstanding the
absence of any evidence or notice
for any act of violence on the part of
any one toward the deceased.
When Last Neeu Alive.
The last person who saw Mr. Miller
alive wasCorea Sheehan. a farmer
living six miles from Fort Bvron.w ho
called at Miller's shot) Saturday af
ternoon and engaged him to convey
him to Le Claire, on the Iowa side of
the river, in the hitter's boat. The
two went into Shannon's saloon in
Le Claire, where thev each drank a
glass of beer. It was the last Slice
han saw of Miller. At t o'clock Sun
day morning Sheehan was brought
back 1o Fort Byron in a boat by two
men he did not know and landed near

C. C. Covne. D. A. Malarkev. John
Schafer. Jr.. ami A. A. Olin. heard
this evidence and also the testimony
of Stephen Allen and C. C. Covne re

returned a verdict that the. deceased
came to his death from "neglect and
exposure to wet and cold.' the gen

came intoxicated while in Le Claire.
and coming home by himself in his
boat yesterday morning got into the
water near the shore, and being
chilled by the wet, got only up as far
as t he railroad track, where lie wa
seized with a chill, fell and died.
Miller was about ZZ years of age, a
widower and leaves several children,
one son of whom lives in Fort Bvron.
He was a tailor and ran a little shop
in the town and often crossed over to
Le Claire in his boat.

CAUSED A COMMOTION.
A mind Horse Runs Away and (iocs
Through a Window.
,A blind horse created a commntion
on Second avenue this morning by
running away, and after figuring in
several lucky escapes of people who
came in contact with him, dashed
bodily through the east window of
the Bijou cigar store in Harper's the
atre building and brought up in a
heap on the tloor. -
The animal belongs to Max Tax
man, a peddler living on Fourth
avenue between Fifteenth and Six
teenth streets. This morning short
ly after 10 o'oloek Mr. Taxman ac
companied by his son, David, 1G years
of age, was driving down Second ave
nue in a peddler's wagon. At Eigh
teenth street the horse took fright
at something and became uncontroll
able. Both Taxman and his son at
tempted to handle the reins, but the
oorse, blind as he was, became more
unmanageable at every step, and by
the time Seventeenth street was
reached he was getting along at a lire
department gait, though pursuing a
sort of zig-zag course.
A Thrilling Kseape.
Coming up Second avenue in a
surrey was Mrs. W. J. Kahlke and
her three children. They were right
in the way which the runaway horse
was going, but as they turned from
the course, quickly the blind horse
turned too ami for an instant a col
lision seemed inevitable. But the
tram rail of the east bound street
car track caught the front wheel of
the peddler's wagon and swung it
around. The hind wheel struck the
hub of Mrs. Kahlke's buggy, but not
with sufficient force to do any dam
age and the peril was over. In
swinging around, however, the reach
of the peddler's wagon broke
and the rear wheels and box
came down with a crash with Tax
man on top of it. The boy hung on
to the reins and front wheels.
Throuifli a Hlgr Window.
The horse continued his mad dash
to Sixteenth street and made direct
for the window facing east of the Bi
jou cigar and news depot under Har
iht's 1 heatre, and went through it
like a flash, the wheels and boy Jeing
left outside. There was a crash of
broken glass ami the horse fell on the
tloor just inside tlte big window,
which was completely demolished.
In the store were F. XV. Kinck.

while they saw the horse coming they
did not realize that he was going
through the window until he
was upon them. Then they all
hustled into a closet under the stair
way and gave the unwelcome intrud
er undisputed possession of the store.
A crowd soon congregated and the
horse was extracted from his jtosit ion.
He was found to be cut about the nose
anil hip, but was otherwise uninjur
ed. The wagon was damaged con
siderably while $10 won't more than
