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. Dovvl'.t represented
two districts, nnd cast two votes against

mined upon a 'plan of campaign,' ai It la
called, which, It sustained by us ns It should

Bides. Tho beating of tho Bchoonor
ngalnst tho rocks had caused tho povvdor to
Ignite and tho entire quantity aboard
nearly 100,000 pounds had exploded.
To thoso living In tho neighborhood tho
effect was frightful. Tho signal-station
was demolished. The llfe-Bavlng station
was also wrecked, and tho west sldo of tho
Cliff House, notwithstanding its olova
