Dan Stiger Struck by the Hunnewell Tram Monday Night and Killed. Dan Stiger, a farmer living five miles south and one west of Huoue well, was struck by the Hunnewell tram about 9 p.m. Monday, while attempting to drive across the track, and was instantly killed. Stiger was driving a two horse team, and it is thought he tried to cross in front of the train. Engineer Charlie Ulintoe, whj was on the engine, says the first he knew of the presence of Stiger was when he saw the team dart iq front of the engine. The train was stopped as soon as possible, and Stiger's dead body was found on the pilot of the engine. One of the horses was injur ed so badly that it was necessary to kill it. The train was in charge of Couductor Wilbur and was on its way south when the accident occurred. The train carried ten or twelve freight cars, and ran about three hun dred yards before It could be brought to a standstill. The remains were taken to Braman, and an Inquest held next morning when the train came back on its way north. The train was held at Bra- man while the crew told what they knew of the accident. We bave not learned the result of the inquest, but it is almost certain that the trainmen will be held blameless, as It was pure ly an accident, which they were unable to avoid. It is thought that when Stiger saw the train coming, he attempted to drive across the crossing before the train reached It. The accident occur red at the second road crossing south of Ilunnewell, about a mile a half from town. Republican Convention. The convention organized Tuesday by electing C. E.
