LAURA SWANSON'S FATE.
Coranrf't Inquest Over the Kemalim of the
Coroner Hawes, this morning held
an inquest over the remains of little
Laura Swanson, the unfortunate
child run down bv a motor ear on the
red line of the Davenport & Rock
Island Railway company on Fourth
avenue and Second street yesterday
afternoon, and whose death from the
result occurred at 5 o'clock. A jury
was summoned composed of M. E.
Sweeney, foreman; Charles E.
Kahlke" L. V. Eckhart, C. A.
Martin, W. L. Sweeney and
Charles Engel. The evidence of
John Stopp. the motorman in charge
of the car. was that the car was west
bound and stopped at Second street
to let a lady olT, who, being advanced
in years, required considerable time
to alight. As the car approached he
saw the littlegirl playing with her
doll near the lumber pile 20 or 2.r
feet away from the track. She was
not on the track when he started the
car again, and the first he knew was
the jolt of the rear trucks passing
over her body. He was not going
fast, as the end f the line was but
a few feet beyond. When he went
back he found the child lying
on her face with her head to
the north ami her limbs across the
track and her doll beside her. The
motorman did not know how the
child got nniler the cars. He testi
fied however, that children in that
part of the town were in the habit
of playing about the ears when
reaching the end of the line, and
eausinir the motormeii much annoy
ance. Dr. Asay testified to being called,
after the child was taken toitshome.
of tindingthe riijht leg almor-t sev

remaining with her until death from

but did not see the accident or know
how it happened. Charles Swanson,
father ot the little girl, testified to
her being three years old May 1.
The jury after hearing the evidence
returned a verdict that Laura Swan
son "came to her death by being run
over accidentally by car :?t of the Dav
enport vV: Rock Island Railroad com
pauv at about 1 :.r0 p. m. on June S.
1!3. on Fourth avenue between
First and Second streets, in the city
of Rock Island, and we exonerate
John Stopp. the motorman in charge
of said ear. from all blame and negli
gence in connection therewith."'
While no one witnessed the acci
dent, the supposition is that the little
one thinking the car had reached the
end of the line when it stopped, went
to play about it. as thechildren down
that way are apt to do. dropped her
loll under the car bet ween the trucks,
and was attempting to get it when
the car started. The sad occurrence
should serve as a warning to the
children in that part of the city,
who evidently have become extremely
reckless in playing about the cars.
The funeral occurs tomorrow after
noon. government Printing.
Some prodigiously large volumes have
been printed at the government print
ing office in a wonderfully short time.
For instance, the Revised Statutes, which
constitute a volume of 1,038 closely
printed pages, were set up, proof read
three times, printed and delivered in j
bound form to the house of representa
tives between 5 o clock, p. m., on a
Wednesday and 12 o'clock, noon, on the
following Saturday an interval of only
67 hours. Perhaps the greatest work of
printing ever undertaken anywhere was
the publication of 10,000 copies of the
records of the war of the rebellion in 130
royal octavo volumes of 800 pages each,
at a total cost of $1,260,000 for printing
This single publication will require
over 75,000 printers' reams of white pa
per to print it, and the composition will
probably exceed 300,000,000,000 ems.
There will bo when the work is finished
not less than 1,200,000 actual books of
POO pages each. These figures dwarf
those of the largest encyclopedia ever
published in any country or in any lan
iruaire. Washinjrton Star.
