THE COMPANY INQUEST HELD ON THE BODY OF ANDREW JOHNSON. WHOLLY ACCIDENTAL Three Witnesses Testify Before the Jury-Engineer Eldridge States that a Heavy Fog Prevailed and that He Was Able to See Only Four Car Lengths Ahead. Doctor J. H. Rinehart, coroner for Yellowstone county, held an inquest yesterday afternoon, at George Set zler's new furniture store, over the remains of Andrew Johnson, the Laurel section foreman. Mr. Johnson was killed about 8 e'clock, Wednesday morning at a point on the Northern Pacific railway, 3 six miles east of Laurel, and his body was brought here the same evening. The jury empanelled to hear the evi- I dence was composed of L. H. Parker, Charles Deskins, W. H. McVea, George Setzler, E. J. O'Meara and G. 7 B. Williams. The first witness called was George Eldridge, of Livingston, engineer of the passenger train that struck and killed Mr. Johnson. Mr. Eldridge stated in substance that the accident occurred about 8:10 in the morning. He was going west with train No. 5, the Burlington westbound, a and at a point about 100 yards east of mile post No. 6 he saw two men tak ing a handcar off the track. A heavy c fog bung over the valley that morning Sand he stated that he was unable to see more than four car lengths ahead of the engine. As soon as he saw the i, men he threw the air brake lever into a the emergency -notch and shut off b steam. By the time this was done he I had passed the handcar. The train P was stopped in six car lengths beyond s the handcar and he got off the engine e and walked back. Inasmuch as the I men were on the left side of the track n he did not see Johnson when the en- g gine struck but the handcar was not ti touched. Johnson was still alive and 14 he was placed in the bagage car and P taken to Laurel. When he first seen the men one of them was pulling and 9 the other shoving the handcar. The P engineer stated he was running from a 30 to 35 miles an hour when he first t] saw the men. T W. B. Jones the fireman of the en gine, testified in substance the same as the enginees. He heard the en gineer throw on the air he said, and knowing something was wrong sprang to the cab window. He saw the men taking the handcar off the track, and F at the time the wheels of the car were clear of the last rail. He said that the man who was shoving the car seemed to be more anxious to save the ca-" than he did himself. He was lmost clear, however, when the engine struck him on the hip and knocked him about 15 feet. Joe Lombard, who was the only sec- b tion hand with the deceased at the tl me, said that the accident occurred st six miles from Laurel. They had tl me out from the section house with e car and stapped at the mile post, n: here the foreman said they would go , n to Billings. He said -there would be plenty of time against No. 5, but they had only fairly started the car l' hen he heard Johnson cry out, "the w train is coming." Witness stated that they were one and one-fourth mile;; off ft f the Laurel section at the time, out rt he could not explain for what reason nm except that Johnson said they would1 p -o to Billings. The jury returned the followine o erdict: "We find that the deceased cl _me to his death by beilng accidental y struck by a Northern Pacific engine tc ulling train No. 5, and that the a orthern Pacific railway company, or in ts employes, are in no way responsi- tl Coroner Rinehart stated to The d; azette that Mr. Johnson never re evered consciousness after he was a truck and that he died in the baggage ir ar en route to Laurel. The body was aken to Livingston this morning for .urial. An Edison Joke. "Thomas Edison," said a magazine ditor, "is in his quiet way a great oker. "He was showing me over his work hops one day when a curious looking odel caught my eye-a cube thing n rockers, with a kind of telephonic -ttachment running into it. "'What on earth is that?' said I "'That,' said Mr. Edison, 'is an in ention I am working on. I hope to ake my fortune by it. It is a motor o run by sound. You attack it to a radle, and the louder the baby cries, he faster the cradle rocks.'" Making It Less Sinful. 'Commissioner James R. Garfield, at dinner in Chicago, told a story of m Black, the founder of the well wn publishing house. "One day, a short time after Mr. ek had opened his book shop," he , "a rough looking man entered thily, leaned over the counter, ed, and whispered in Mr. Black's Tve got some fine smuggled whis that ye can have at a great bar ''Go away,' said Mr. Black. 'I t nothing of that kind. You are bad man. Go away.' But the smuggler must have doubt Sthe sincerity of this repulse, for w, leaning over the counter again, I whispered still more earnestly: I'll take prayerbooks for it."' APPRAISEMENT FILED. W.

[By Associated Press] Pekin, Jan. 11.-Reports from the south and from the Yang Tse valley region, show the anti-foreign senti ment to be very strong. China un doubtedly is in a ferment of political excitement, but the movement is di rected as much against the govern ment as against the foreigners. The government is between two fires. The young China party is clamoring be cause reforms are being executed too slowly, while the conservatives and of ficials are resisting these efforts. MONTANA WEATHER.

[By Associated Press] Washington, Jan. 11.-Before going into executive session today the sen t ate listened to a speech by Mr. Hey burn, in support of his bill creating a national board for the control of cor porations, in which he denounced Wall street, because of its alleged interfer ence with the affairs of the country.

The remainder of the open session was devoted to the discussion of the practice by the senate of sending sen ate resolutions to the calendar after they have been once under discussion. The senate adjourned until Monday. A TRIFLE OVER DONE Fire in Peanut Roasting Plant Causes Great Loss of Goobers and Machin ery. [By Associated Press] Norfolk, Va., Jan. 11.-A fire that broke out in a peanut factory next to the city jail here tonight resulted in the escaping of nine prisoners. The 275 inmates of the pail were marched to the police barracks, but when that structure was threatened they were again transferred, this time to the court house, and when a count was made nine were missing. Mayor Riddick at once called out four companies of the Seventy-first regiment national guard, and the militiamen are now guarding the prisoners. Among the men who escaped is Sol omon Greenstein, a federal prisoner, charged with perjury. The fire entirely destroyed the fac tory and its falling walls crashed upon a foundry, wrecking it. The prox imity of the central power house to the fire caused the shutting off of all lights and power, leaving the city in darkness for several hours. Ten thousand bags of peanuts and a quantity of machinery are included in the loss, which will amount to $100,000. FLEES PROSECUTION. Russian Pole Leaves Home to Join Deadwood Relatives. Deadwood, S. D., Jan. 11.-Mrs. Sho stak of this city and J. Askovich, a barber of Lead, have just received word that their brother, who has been a resident of Russian Poland, is on his way to America to seek refuge. For months young Shim Askovich wrote that he had lived in his home at Lodz with his doors locked and in imminent fear and peril of his life. He has seen men and women murder ed openly in the streets, and had it not been for the remittance sent him regularly by his relatives, he would have starved. All work is at a stand still on ac count of the strikes, and even if it were not, he could not with safety seek work, as all Jews are in danger of. heir lives. Owing to the strict censorship, Askovich has dared to send only the most meager news con cerning conditions there. A ticket was sent him a few weeks ago, and he is now on his way to this country. He is a tinner by trade, and has al ways heretofore made a good living. Another Russian in this city who receives but scanty news from his mother country, is Morris Cohen, a well known baker. His motner still lives in Russia, but dares to write but little to her son. tRAIDERS KILL TWO HERDERS RANGE WAR IS RENEWED IN WYOMING. COLD BLOODED MURDER Without Warning or Opportunity to Defend Themselves Victims of Cow. ardly Attack Are Shot in their Wagons-Further Trouble Expected. [By Associated Press] Evanston, Wyo., Jan. 11.-Masked and mounted raiders, presumed to be cattlemen, tonight attacked the camps of two Utah flockmasters near Burnt Fork, close to the Utah-Wyoming line, shot down A. N. Castle and Robert Allen, herders, slaughtered their sheep and burned the campwagons and out fits. A camp mover, who escaped the bullets of the raiders, witnessed the murder from the brush. The raiders numbered about 20 and approached the camps at a gallop, firing a fus sillade of shots into the wagons. The herders were killed at the first fire. It required less than half an hour to club the sheep to death and burn the outfits. Notice of warning to other flock masters were left with the bodies of the dead herders. The sheep men are indignant and threaten to get even, and more trouble is anticipated. The range on which the outrage was committed has long been in dispute and the sheepmen have been frequent ly ordered away. PETITIONS FOR LETTERS.

Western Railroads OrganiSe to Pro , vent Paying of Rebates. Chicago, Jan. 11.-A permanent organization has been effected of the committee of executive traffic officials who recently went to Washington and promised to co-operate with the inter state commerce commission in pre venting the payments of rebates and other violations of the act to regulate commerce. J. C. Stubbs, traffic direc tor of the Harriman system, was made chairman of the committee and W. H. Hosmer secretary. The agreement made by the com mittee provides that any road found or suspected of doing anything unlaw ful or "irregular," shall make a satis factory explanation or give assurance to the road making complaint that im proper practices will be discontinued immediately. In case the offending road declines to make satisfactory reply, the accusing line shall refer the case to the committee of which Mr. Stubbs is chariman. The committee shall make an investigation and de cide whether the cast shall be drop ped or presented to the interstate commerce commission with a recom mendation that court proceedings be begun against the offending road. Should the Stubbs committee decide to drop a case, the complaining road may independently present the facts to the interstate commerce commis sion. It remains to be seen whether any road will give information to the com mission which will result in the criminal prosecution of another road or its officers. CAUSED BY FOOTBALL. Son Leaves Home and Disappearance Prevents Sister's Wedding. Sioux City, Iowa, Jan. 11.-Football is charged with causing trouble in the home of W. A. Van Husen of Detroit, who is here searching for his son, Alton R. Van Husen, formerly a stu dent at Albion college at Albion, Mich. Young Van Husen was a tackle on the Albion college eleven. His father was bitterly opposed to the "brutal game." He ordered the boy to quit the game or quit college and return home. The boy is said to have continued to play, but under an assumed name. The father discovered this, and added emphasis to his second command. Young Van Husen found himself han dicapped when the remittances from home failed to put in an appearance, and he quit school-but he did not go home. Since early in, the fall the family has heard almost nothing from him, except that he has been playing the piano for a "barnstorming" theatrical organization that has been playing in North Dakota. In the meantime a wedding is being held up pending the finding of the young man. Mildred Van Husen is to be married to Walter R. Weideman in Detroit, but the girl refuses to let the wedding bells ring until the miss ing brother is found. MORAN HEARD FROM Boston's New District Attorney Asks Removal of Massachusetts Savings Bank Commissioners for Neglect of Duty. [By Associated Press] Boston, Mass., Jan. 11.-As the re sult of his investigation today of the recent suspension of the Provident Securities and Banking company of this city, District Attorney John B. Moran tonight sent a letter to Gov ernor Curtin Guild, Jr., asking that the Massachusetts savings bank com missioners, James O. Otis of Malden, Frederick B. Washburn of Wellesley Hills, and Warren E. Lock of Nor wood, were "grossly careless and wil fully negligent" in connection with the affairs of the Provident company and other institutions. Mr. Moran maintains that the sav ings bank commissioners had full power under the law of 1902 to inquire into the affairs of the company, and that if they had done so they weo.id have uncovered the cc'ndition of af fairs which have been revealed by the suspension, and thus prevented possi ble losses affecting over 8,000 de positers, the majority of whom are laboring men and women and chil dren. PROVES A POSER. Attorney General of Washington Wrestling With Interesting Question. Olympia, Wash., Jan. 11.-The at torney general of Washington is wrestling with a novel question which has been put to him by an individual whose letter head indicates the writer to be "A. R. Maulsby, successor to R. N. Gifford & Co., county coroner, fun eral director and embalmer, private funeral car," of Bellingham. Th4 orthography of the letter is unique, but hardly more so than the text, which minus the errors in spelling, follows: "In a recent discussion with the game warden of this state place the question as to whether a mounted specimen or that of a Mongolian pheasant could be sent out of the state, legally or not. The warden holds not, inasmuch as they do not lose their identity as a pheasant in being mounted, the process in mount ing to use the plumage complete and a part of the bones, skull and a part of s wing and leg bones. I hold that cer tain part used in mounting is not a bird of any discription. The matter was referred to our state fish and game warden, T. R. Kershaw for an I interpretation of the law on this sub- i ject and by him I am asked to refer the matter to you and I hope that*I | may hear from you as soon as pos sible. I might add that the same i question applies to any game bird r killed in open season legally and the parts mentionedmounted to be sent to friends as a present out of the state." c COSSIP AMONG nt RAILROAD MEN r- WHAT THEY SAY REGARDING e- NEW BURLINGTON TRAIN. :e - - - c ELEGANT EQUIPMENT I One of the Trains Will Be Made Lux e urious-Double Passenger Service Will Be Installed February 14 g Will Make Connections with North ern Pacific Trains, Nos. 3 and 4. e Burlington railroad men believe that when the second passenger train is put on the northern lines of that company, that the present trains will be made two of the finest equipped passenger trains that traverse the 3 great valleys and plains of the north west. r A high official of the company gave out the information a few days ago that the present trains, Nos. 41 and 42, would be composed of new equipment throughout, made up of the latest type of standard Pullman sleeping cars, new dining cars and an observation car containing all of the conveniences that can possibly be crowded into it. Railroad men say that the new train, which will be started out from Mis souri river points on the morning of the 14th of February, will run no fur ther west than Butte, and will make connections at Billings with trains Nos. 3 and 4 of the Northern Pacific. The new Burlington train, it is said, will arrive here about 1:45 in the morning, or about a half hour before No. 3 arrives, and will leave here, eastbound, immediately behind No. 4 at night. There has been gossip to the effect, also, that the report of a new train for the Burlington is all rumor and that the officials of the company have stated that they will I not install it, but will improve the northwest service by newly equipping the present passenger trains under op eration. However, this report is not generally credited inasmuch as it has been authoritatively given out from the office of L. W. Wakeley, general northwestern agent with headquarters at Omaha, that a new train would be be placed in service February 14. The Burlington now' has four passenger crews running into Billings and in case of the doubling up of the service eight crews will probably be required. I The crews now running on this end of the line will probably be given their choice of runs after the other train is put on. There is still another report in re gard to what the new Burlington train will do. This is in effect that it will 1 run no farther than Billings and that the Northern Pacific will install a new coast train to take care of it by run- I ning the local passenger train, that now stops at Mandan, through to the coast, picking up the Burlington train i at this point. All of the trancontinental roads are expecting a great rush of western tra vel this spring and the cheap rates will be made to take effect February 15, which is 15 days earlier than they t have ever before been placed in ef fect. Both the Great Northern and Northern Pacific, as well as the Bur- 1 lington, have announced exceedingly 1 low rates, and the same schedule ap- x plies on the Burlington from Chicago, r St. Louis and Missouri river points. t The rate from the Twin cities to the e coast will be $25; to Spokane and El- I lensburg, $22.50; to Helena and Butte c $20, and to Billings $15. This town is 1 expecting a great influx of colonists from the eastern and middle states as ( soon as spring opens.
