Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 13. Tho south bound passongor train on tha Missouri Pa cific extension which loft Omaha Monday night and was duo hero yesterday morning was wrecked nenr Dunbar, Neb., nbout midnight byn looso roll from which sovornl splkos and fish-plates hail been removed by somo ono unknown. Tho train, travollng nt a rate of thirty miles nn hour, plunged fif teen feoldown nn embankment nnd landed in a snow-drift. Jnmcs Dowitt, of Wynn-d-9tto, Knn., cnglncor, wns cnughi undor tho boilor and killod. Frank O. Clicnowith, of Kansas City, express mosscnger, was hurt so badly that It is thought ho will die, Twenty persons wero mora or less injured. These wore taken to Atchison, whero thoy nro being cared for. Tho entire tram left tho track, and prob ably tho loss of lifo would havo boon great if it ha I not been for tho snow-bank, which broko tho forcoof tho plungo. Tho Missouri Pacific officials say that tho wreck is tho result of a third attempt upon tho lifo of Dowitt, tho onglnoor. Thoy say somo of tho men engaged in the strlko last spring chorlshed n gruugo ngalnst uowitt 00 causo ho was an active Bupportor of tho company during tho strlko. Thoy assort that tho wreck near Wyandotte, for which Hamilton has Just boeu tried, was the re sult of n plot against Dowltt's life, but his train was not tho first to pass over tho track, as thoy oxpected. Subsequently, thoy say, n second attempt was made, and this Is tho third. Tho coroner's Jury hns found a verdict in tho caso of Dowitt, declaring u belief that tho jury bcliovos David Hoffman, of Dun bur, James Boll, of Unudilla, und others weio concerned in wroeklng tho train. Hoffman and Boll havo been nrrcstod and taken to Nebraska City nnd lodged In Jail. Neither of tho mon nro members of tho local Knights of Labor. S. D. Wilson, conductor of tho wrecked train, says that fifty-two passengers wero aboard of tho train, nnd thnt their CBcnpo from death was almost miraculous. Tha cnglno landed fifty feet from tha track, nnd tha baggngo-cir, strangely, was carried ns far beyond tho onglno. Tho throttlo lover was forcod through Dowltt's right lung, and his faca was scalded black. Tho express messenger Is frightfully wounded. Uls skull is badly fractured nud every bono In his faco broken. A dispatch from Nobraska City to tho Ttmtt advances tho theory that tho mo tive of tho crlmo was robbery, thcro being $17,000 worth of bullion on tho tro'fi. This theory Is discridttod hero, however. An of ficial ot tin) road nt tills point bays there is no evidenco that tho work was instigated by tiny Knights of Labor organization, but that tho animosity of tho ex-strikers to ward Dowitt was well known. A special from Wynndotto, Kan , tho homa ot tho dead cnglncor, says Dowltt's friends openly chargo his death to tho Knights of Labor. It appears that ho wns a dolcgato to 11 convention held ut St, Louis lMt spring during thagrent Southwestern strlko to detcrmino whetJor tho engineers shculd go put or support tho strikers.
