THREE MEET DEATH BY
ACCIDENTS IN THREE DAYS
A. L. Seelinger* a Stranger* Killed by a Train
Samuel Pritchard Crushed by Wagon-Ed
ward Dayton Kicked by Horse*
An evil spirit seems to have hover
ed over this section the past week, as
three persons met accidental deaths
within 48 hours. The first one was a'
stranger by the name of A. L. Seelin
ger, who was killed at Pescadero Sid
ing last Saturday morning by being
struck by the engine of passenger
train No. 19. Seelinger was walking
on the track, west bound. Owing to
the curve in the track at that point,
Engineer Brady did not see the man
at all. As soon as Fireman Lockman
saw him, he notified Brady, who blew
the required danger signal.
Ludwig of Nounan, who was waiting
at the crossing for the passenger
train to pass, and Brakeman Young
of a freight, which was on the siding,
both saw the engine hit Seelinger.
Both state that he apparently paid no
heed to the danger signal, but they
supposed he would step from the
track before the train reached him.
)
Robt.
When Fireman Lockmau saw that
the engine was about to hit the man,
he gave Engieer Brady the signal to
apply the emergency brakes, which be
did, but tbe train was not brought to
a stop until after the engine and sev
eral cars had passed over the body,
cutting it into a half dozen or more
pieces. The pieces were picked up,
placed in a canvas and taken on to
Soda Springs. They were brought
back to Montpelier on No. 18 and
turned over to Coroner Williams.
Among the papers on the body was
found a pass book on the State Bank
of Dillworth, Oklahoma. A message
was sent to the police officers there,
who replied that the man's wife re
sided at Peckham, Okla. She was
notified by wire of her husband's
death, and she wired the amount nec
esaary to pay for shipping the body
to Newkirk, Okla., for burial. It was
sent out on No. 4 Tuesday night.
The body was so badly mangled that
Mr. Williams could do but little to
wards placing «the pieces together so
they would resemble a human being,
Seelinger was in Montpelier last
Friday night and when accosted by
Officer Buck, he said that he was
"broke" and was hunting work. Buck
took the man into one of the restaur
ants and gave him a meal, which
was the last he saw of him.
Coroner Williams empanelled a Ju
ry and an inquest was held Monday
morning. After hearing all of the
evidence obtainable the jury return
ed a verdict toThe effect that the kill
ing was purely accidental, and due
to the man's negligence in not heed
ing the warning given by Engineer
, Brady. The verdict exonerated the
train crew from any responsibility for
tain death. /
Samuel Pritchard was the second
person to meet almost instant death
in an accident which occurred at
10:30 o'clock last Sunday morning.
Mr. Pritchard was an old resident of
Bear Lake county, having resided at
Paris for 18 years. •
About four weeks ago Mr. Pritch
ard came to Montpelier and waa em
ployed by his brother-in-law, Easton
Kelsey, to drive one of the street
sprinkling wagons. He was engaged
in that work when he met with the
fatal accident. He had backed the
sprinkler up to the water plug jUBt
west of the Montpelier mill. • The
tank had been filled and Mr. Pritch
ard was about to unscrew the hose
from the plug, when the team start

here today. Judge Budge of the Su
preme Court pointed out that Idaho
with a population of 325,000, or
.0035 per cent of the population of
United States, furnished 17,000
troops or .005 per cent of the Nation
al army, and that those who remained
home stood solidly behind the boys
„ the front by over-subscribing lib
erally to tbe five Liberty loans and
contributing over $1.500,000 to the
Rcd Cross, Y. M. C. A. and other or
ganizations doing overseas dork.
Idaho benefltted but little financl

Judge Budge declared that we were
engaged in a war of conquest,
nor seeking to gratify a spirit of re
venge. J>ut were determined to main
rain our independence and our rights
upon t!ie high seas. During the time ,

of the horses, and in hia effort to j
stop them he either fell or was 1
knocked down by the horses and the j
loaded sprinkler ran diagonally !
across his body. Besides crushing j
his chest, his right leg was broken !
at the ankle.
Frank Miles, who heard Pritchard |
trying to stop the team, hurried to his 1
rescue but arrived too late to be of ,
nnv assistance, for the injured man's !
condition was then beyond all human ;
aid and the end came within a few |
minutes.
I
The body was conveyed to the Wll- j
lams undertaking parlors where It t
was prepared for burial.
Mr. Pritchard was born in Eng
land 66 years ago, but he bad been a
resident of this county for manw'l
years. He and his family separated \
about four years ago and It is ndt
known where his wife is now resla- i
ing. He had four sons and otje !
daughter. To sons arrived frota !
Oregon Wednesday to attend the fu- :
neral, which was held in the Parik ;
Second ward meeting house yestert
day afternoon,
The third one to meet an untimely
death was Edward Dayton of Dingle, .
the 17-year-old son of the late Oliver j
Dayton. He was killed on the Pete|
Olson ranch, near Cokevtlle, last
Monday just at noon. He had un
hitched the team, with which he was
working in the held, and mounted
one of the horses to ride in for din
ner. It is presumed the horse start
ed up suddenly and young Dayton
lost his balance. In falling from the
animal one foot caught in the harness
and he was dragged about 200 yards,
the horse kicking him on the head as
he ran. The young man's skull wad
fractured, his face badly lacerated
and one leg was broken.
The accident was witnessed by;
three boys, ranging In ages from !
eight to ten. Two were John and !
Everett Dayton, sons of Elmo Day
ton, and the third was Dunford Day
ton, a cousin. They hurried to Ed
ward's side, and realizing that ta* was
seriously injured, Everett was dis
patched to the house for help, while
the other two remained with Edward,
John holding him in his arms. Be- ■
fore men arrived from the house,
death relieved Edward of his suffer- |
ing.
The body was brought into Coke
ville and prepared for burial by Un
dertaker Jos. Fuller. Tuesday morn
ing It was brought to Dingle on No.
and four sisters. Besides Mrs. Kelsey,
his sisters, Mr*. Chadwick of Shelley,
and.Mrs. Hayes of Idaho Falls, and i
