Bilven while in the dis charge of his duty." It Is further pointed out that the man was at tempting to escape justice.

The train, consisting of a locomo tive, eighteen cars and a caboose, ap proached the bridge about 7 a. m. The steamboat Hiawatha was passing and the draw was open. A fog cov ered the river and it was impossible to see the danger. Dantefc Ttbb#t,,-tl»e bridge lender asserts he did not blow the whistle which tells trains to advance. The train, running slowly, bored through the fog and into the abyss. The weight of the engine was enough to drag over, the six cars following. All were packed with live stock. The bawling of the cattle, the roar and crash of the breaking cars and the cries from the men about the scene attracted hundreds of persons. Rescue Crews Formed. Rescue crews were formed at- fttte*. and wreckings trains were hurried to the scene. One car was hanging over the edge of the bridge and the cattle in it were roped and dragged into the river, where they swam ashore. Many were so badly hurt that they had to be killed. The loss was about $16,000. The cars were on the St. Paul bridge and the terminal tracks of the belt line running to the stock yards from the city. They were Great Northern and Milwaukee rolling stock. Kramer's body was recovered shortly after the accident. An Inves tigation of the bridge tender's story will be made.
