Farrants had been in the employ of r
$ Charles Curnett, but had quit October e
D 13, saying he was going to Miles City. ii
SIHe had a camping outfit and he made t
camp in the afternoon about seven
$ miles from Jordan.
SHe met Comment, who had also
* camped there for the night. Comment I
C sent Farrants back to town to tell 8
' Comment's wife that he was sick and I
to bring her out to the camp. Far- I
* rants went back to town and there t
* learned that Comment and his wife i
@ had quarreled and that she had re- I
* fused to have anything more to do 1
° with him. He immediately returned 1
* to camp without seeing the woman,
0 saying he would rather make Com-i

a whipping.
$ Charles Curnett and a man in his
0 employ discovered the crime the next I
0 day, and suspicion at once fell on

mountains.
SAccording to his story, after Far
rants returned the men quarreled and
Farrants gave Comments a whipping.
Then, as they were making up their
beds and Farrants was stooping over,
Comments hit him on the head with
a neckyoke. However, from the ap
pearance of Farrants' body it would
seem that he had been killed, while
asleep, with an ax. Revenge was evi
0 dently the motive, as no money nor
0 valuables were taken from the body.
0 Comment said that after the crime he
0 had taken Farrants' gun ahd started
0 for Glendive to give himself up.
0 His preliminary hearing was set for
0 tomorrow. Lentz and Leiper are' the
0 attorneys for the defense.

ISTHMUS UNEASY.
Marines to Be Kept There to Main
tain Order.
Washington, Oct. 21.-American
marines will be retained on the isth
mus of Panama for the present, pre- gy
pared to meet any emergency which
may arise as the result of the dis
gruntled elements in the new repub
lic and orders have been issued for a
new battalion of marines to go-to the
isthmus about November 15 to relieve
the battalion which has been there
for a year. The new battalion willl
be commanded by Lieutenant Colonel
Thomas Wood.
That the situation on the isthmus is
still not all that could be desired is
the news which comes to Washington
in a personal letter from an official
now in Panama. While the Panama
government is entirely loyal, it seem 9'r
that there are certain disgruntled e-.
ments in the isthmus, and in view of
the ease with which revolutions are by
started in Central and South America ca
it is the official opinion there that the o
marines should remain there for the of
present.
It is hoped that the mission of Sec
retary Taft will have a far-reaching S
effect in bringing all elements on the
isthmus into harmonious accord with
this government's policy. tL

MEETS WITH
AWFUL DEATH
SWITCHMAN KILLED ON NORTH
ERN PACIFIC TRACK.
BODY IS HORRIBLY MANGLED
While Climbing From Car A. J. Fohey
Falls Under Trucks-Died
Almost Instantly.
From Friday's Daily.
A. J. Fohey, a Northern Pacific
switchman, was killed this forenoon
by being run over by several stock
cars which he was helping to place G
on a siding at the stockyaras, east W
of the city.
.The accident occurred at 11:20 and
was in part witnessed by Policeman
Salsbury, who was riding on the
same car with the unfortunate man.
Fohey and the officer were seated on
the end of a car, the fourth from
the last in the string. When near
the switch, two other switchmen rid
ir.g on the front footboard of the en
gine descended to throw the switch.
At the same instant Fohey arose and
crossed to the car which he was fac
ing and started to climb down the
ladder at the east end. Officer Sals
bury paid but little attention to him,
as he was scanning the ground on
both sides, on the lookout for a man
whom he was hunting. The last he
sa'v of Fohey was when he was de
scending the ladder and only hi. head
and shioulders appeared above ihe top
of the car, his back turned ttiward
the ipolceman.
A moment or so afterward Mr. Sals
bury felt a jar and observed the car
back of him jolt as though the wheels
were passing over some obstruction
on the rails. This caused him to
look down and back and he saw some
object lying on the track.
Found' Man Dying.
Without waiting to see further Mr.
Salsbury climbed down the side lad
der of the car on which he was and
when he reached the ground he saw
I Mr. Fohey a short distance to the
west of him lying on his face, with
his legs across the track and his head
on the outside. He signalled to the
i other two men ahead of him to stop
and then ran to where Fohey was.
When he arrived there Fohey was
still breathing, but unconscious. As
a freight .train was approaching from
the east, Mr. ISalsbury pulled the un
fortunate man to one side. By this
time the others had joined him and
as there is but a little clear space
between the two tracks at the point
where the accident occurred, they
picked up the now dead man and
carried him to the far side, where he
was permitted to remain, while the
switch engine came back for assist
ance.
iNo sound was uttered by Fohey af
ter the policeman reached hiWp and
he expired in an instant afterward.
The body was brought to Setzler's
undertaking rooms and. word was
sent to a brother of the dead man,
who notified his wife.
Was Married Man.
Fohey was about 29 years of age
and married. In addition to his
widow he leaves a brother in this
city and relatives in the east. He
was a member of Billings lodge of
Elks and also carried a membership
in the Harrison Burial association.
His death is made doubly sad by the
fact that he had been married only
a short time and was looking with
joyous anticipation for the speedy
coming of an event that was to make
his already happy little home all the
happier by the added sunshine it
Body FrightfulIy -.arigl ea.
The body of poor Fohey was fright
fully mangled. Three cars passed
over him, about midway between the
waist line and feet. Both legs were
broken and torn and the lower part or
the abdomen crusned into a pulp.
An inquest is being held this after
noon.
