Tho Sad Pate of vfi'am C. Fain
ter Killed by the Cars
Va). Repuhlican: It is witb feel
ings of sorrow and sympathy that I
endeavor to chronicle the particulars
attending the untimely ami sudden
death of William Painter,by the cars.
Many of your readers were well ac
quainted with deceased, although he
never rcsbJed in our midst. He was
the brother of John T. Fainter, who
served with; such general satisfaction
in the capacity of jailor and Deputy
Shsriir under the late Col. Conover,
and our fellow-citizen J. A. Sanders,
Eeo,. lie was also the brother of
Thomas, who has for several years
been in the employ of our fellow
townsman, M. S. Morris, in the man
ufacture of plows and general black
smith work. lie was also a member
of the Savannah Lodge Xo. 11, I. O.
O. F., and was buried by that frater
nity, the Eclipse Lodge of St. Joseph
The deceased was born Sept. 14,
1815, in Washington county, Ohio.
He came to Missouri in 18G8, and was
engaged as carpenter, on what was
known at that time as the "Missouri
Yalley Railroad," and had been con
stantly in its employ up to the time
of his death, at which time he was
serving in the capacity of superiuten
deal of a section of bridge hands.
lie was a sober and industrious
man, scrupulously hones', and faith
ful, ever guarding the best interests
of his employers, gentlemanly in his
intercourse with, the world, always at
his post of duty, he was loved and
respected by all who knew him, and
especially by theoflicers and employ
ees of the road.
Poor Painter! struck down in the
vigor of manhood at a time when life
was full of joy and happiness: at a
time when associations were pleasant
and friends sincere without a mo
ments warning, at a time and place,
where even his fond wife and loving
child were not permitted to lisp the
name of husband and father, ami
close his eyelids in death: A home
made desolate, a fair haired child an
orphan, an all'ectionate wife a widow;
her blooming hopes withered in the
blossom, her once quiet and peaceful
home shrouded in sorrow. And yet
no one is to be blamed; it was an ac
cident, at least, such would seem to
b.3 the verdict from developments,
made thus far.
'c are indebted to the St. Joseph
Gazette of the 18th in-t., for the fol
lowing fiiets, connected with his
death on Wednesday the 17th inst:
"Mr. Painter had been at work
with his men upon one of the com
pany's structures near- Amazonia
Having completed tho duties of the
dav. Paintej and three other men.got
aboard their hand-ear and started
for St. Joseph. They hud reached a
point about two ami one-half miles
above the Francis street depot, when
they became aware of the fact t hat r.
tram was Hearing them, from the
same direction they had come. Think
ing it was a freight, and consequently
making a slow rate of speed, they
hoped to be able to keep well out of
its way, and with this purpose in
view applied themselves vigorously
to the brakes and put. the hand-car to
its utmost speed. Their efforts how
ever were fruitless and they perceiv
ed shortly that the train was fast run
ning them-down. Then they decided
to stop the car and take it off the
track. Having come to a stamt still
the men attempted to lift the car
from the rails. Capt. Stanbrough, of
St. Joseph, was one of t he party, and
he and Mr. Painter had hold of the
car at opposite corners. They suc
ceeded in raising the car and getting
it half off the track, when Urn ap
proaching train dashed madly down
upon them, striking the hand-car
v.'itli terrible force and knocking the
men to right and left: none of them
however received any injuries except
Mr. Painter, and he was killed in
stantly. It was supposed that his
feet must ha-vc become caught be
tween the wheels of the hand-car and
the rail when the locomotive struck
him. When they picked him up, a
mangled bleeding corpse was all that
was left to remind them of honest
William Painter. There was an ugly
gash just above and behind the felt
ear, and both legs had been cut oil'be
low the knees.5-"
His remains were taken to his home
Hi St. Joseph. His widowetL wife-
sent for, who was on a short visit to
friends near Savannah. Hut tllerc
were others to do kind services and
aU that should have been done was
done. The officers of the road were
especially attentive. Such is the sad
history of P.illy Fainter. His remains
were interred in Mount Mora Ceme
tery, in St. Joseph, on the 19th i:i?iv
attended by a large concourse of pec--ple.
His associates wept over his sad
fate, mingling their grief ani'i sympa
thy with the lew relatives who were,
present at his burial: and when the
sad tidings shall be borne to brothers
and sifters, and his early associates, -they
too, will grieve over the untime
ly and almost irreconcilable loss of
brother and Iricud. May "lie who
tempers the wind to the shorn Iamb"
be their Comforter in this the tiki-k-hoiu
of their aliliction. S.
