f Benj Strandman Nearly Killed
in u Runaway.
A runaway occurred on Main street
• last Tuosday afternoon which nearly
3 cost Benj. Strandman his life. In com
pany with several other gentlemen, he
had driven up to Graham’s store and
alighted, setting the brake and wrap
ping the lines about the lever, us he
was in the habit of doing, Ho had
hardly turned away from the wagon,
however, when the horse made a lunge
and Htarted to run up the street. Be
ing unable to reach the lines, Mr.
Strandman jumped into the back end
of the wagon and started to climb over
t.he seat to w here they w’orc fastened.
The seat gave awray and while he was
still scrambling to get over it the horse
dashed into the alleyway between the
Kly Hotel and the old Davis building.
The wagon eollidud with the corner of
Munro's corral and was completely
overturned, throwing its occupant at
least 20 feet.
Help arrived on the scene almost Im
mediately and the injured man was
found lying on his face and apparently
lib dess. The doctor wras among the
first arrivals and applied restoratives,
but it was several minutes before any
sign of life appeared and he remained
unconscious for a couple of hours, toss
ing and groaning with pain. His in
juries are confined to a badly strained
shoulder and side and while very pain*
ful, they are not as serious as was at
first feared. He was resting easily yes
terday and will probably*be on his feet
again within a few days.
(las. Ostcrgard Suffers Severe
Hardly had the excitement from the
Strandman accident subsided, when
another runaway occurred which also
barely missed a fatal termination. As
las. Ostergard and A1 Marshall were
driving home from their work up the !
canyon, the front axle of their buggy !
broke just as they were passing Bird's
lumber yard. The horse started to |
kick and run and Mr. Marshall jumped j
out safely, but Mr. Ostcrgard was;
thrown headlong. He sustained two
hail scalp wounds which required sev
eral stitches to close up and yesterday
was nursing a very sore head.
The horse continued to run down the
street, dragging the broken buggy,
and was caught in front of Graham’s
store, where it narrowly missed jump
ing through one of the show-windows. (
l:ai*rlngton <iihI Coffin Make
Messrs. K. S. Farrington and Tron
mop Coffin, the Republican nomine* .■>
for Congressman and Supreme Judge,
arrived here quite unexpectedly last
i Friday evening from Cherry Creek.
They remained over the next day, In
vestigating the local political situation
and in the evening addressed a public
lueeting at Blip's Hall. The room was
comfortably filled with an audience in
which all parties were represented and
also a number of ladies. W. W. Wick
ham presided and about a dozen prom
inent Republicans, besides the speakers
occupied seats about the Chair.
Mr. Coffin was the first speaker and
: touched lightly on tho various issues
j of the campaign. Ho declared his be
: lief in the free coinage of silver, and
also of holding on to tho advantages
which have come to the country thro’
I the Spanish war and the protective
tariff. He claimed that Bryan and the
j Democrats had given silver a back seat
, and for that reason lie believed tiiat
'• the interests of Nevada would be best
| promoted through the Republican par
ty. Mr. Coffin paid a generous tribute
to the character of his opponent, Judge
Fitzgerald, and ended with a graceful
introduction of the Congressional can
didate, Mr. Farrington, whose address
lasted for an hour.
Mr. Farrington first gave his atten
tion to the motto adopted in the Re
publican platform, “Nevadans for Nc
vuda," and discoursed thereon at some
length. Be declared that Nevada
1 should be held sacred to Nevadans and
; that tho Democrats ought to declare
for “Home Rule*’ in Nevada as well a.
i in the Philippines. Ho said that the
time liad come to put a stop to thf
name of “Rotten Borough" and the
| policy that has shut the door in the
face of Nevada’s ambitious young men.
He then turned his attention to tin.
record of Mr. Nowlands, his opponent,
and made use of a good deal of sarcasm
at that gentleman’s expense. The most
of the facts produced, however, wen
familiar to the audience, having ben
used by Mr. Wivn two years ago Mr.
Farrington d is trussed tho charges tliai
