BODY CRUSHED BY PASSENGER TRAIN. Dick O’Brien Killed Near Alicia By Iron Mountain Passen ger Train No. 17 Early Tuesday Morning. Dick O’Brien, supposed to be | from Hot Springs from letters fbumd upon his person, was in stantly killed Tuesday morning near Alicia, where he was run fe over by Iron Mountain passenger train No. 17. The train ran over his lower limbs, crushing that part of his j body, and death came to his re lief before he could be carried upon the train, which had been j stopped. His remains were brought to Tuckerman, where Coroner Harrison held an inquest and found that his death came about as related. Q- The body of the dead man was f %u ^ brbught to Newport in the after wl noon to be embalmed and to toj await the finding of his relatives, an O’Brien passed through Tucker 01 man the evening before op his se( way north and was thought to Kj be drinking at that time. He | probably became intoxicated and jJ laid down upon the track. FUNERAL SERVICES OF J. B. BENSON, j $LJan. 17.—The funeral ices ofNthe late J. B. Benson were conducted at the Presbyte rian church Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock by ReV. R. B. Willis, assisted by Rev. Frank Barrett. I The church wa3 crowded with | the-relatives, friends and ac quaintances of the family, dem onstrating in no unmistakable manner the high esteem in which Mr. Benson was held. The cas ket was literally covered with floral tributes from the business men, the Phoenix club and other friends. Dr. Willis had but little to say of the life of the deceased, stat ing that he knew it was not the wish of the departed brother' that there should be any eulogy j on his life at this time; that he j had grown up here and every- f body knew him, and his many! noble traits of character and his * Christian life. His talk was to the living, urg ing them to give their strength in their young clays to the Lord and asking^them to read the 53d chapter of Isaiah applying the use of the pronoun I. The choir sang sweetly, “Abide in Me,” “It is Well With | My Soul,” and “Come Ye Dis co n s o la t e.” The services1 ^ were concluded at the grave in Oak Grove cemetery. COUNCIL CHOOSE BAILEY ALDERMAN.j By unanimous vote the council elected A. D. Bailey alderman from the Second ward to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late James M. Hobgood. All the members were present and the nomination of Mr. Bailey j was followed immediately by his: election without the presentation : of other names. There was little other busi-l ness transacted except the al lowance of accounts. The ordi nance relating to the posting of hand-bills was referred back for j second reading and correction. The license for the opera house the current year was fixed at I: $25. ____ t BURSTING PIPES INJURE BATESVILLIAN. L. Hickerson happened ^ at m. very painful accident early Sun day morning, says the Batesville Bee, by getting his leg broken in two places. Mr. Hickerson had built a fire in the kitchen range and the steam pipe lead ing from the reservoir being frozen and the steam having no means of escape burst, wrecking the stove and pieces of the iron struck Mr. Hickerson, breaking his leg in two places. Dr. Law rence set the broken limb, but Mr. Hickerson suffered a great deal of pain yesterday and last night. ARKANSAS TRAVELERS NAME COMMITTEES. The Arkansaw Travelers, now numbering several hundred mem bers, who meet May 4, 5 and 6 at Hot Springs, held a session of their executive board Saturday in Little Rock, when committees for the coming convention were announced. J. B. Hirsch will be chairman of the general amusements de partment and have such assist ants as Billie Leach, Ed McEl wee, Oscar Knight, Harry Isaacs and others. A good time is thus _ ClOOUICU. Mayor Belding of Hot Springs is to fix the press, and his right hand bower is to be Ed Heiskell of the Little Rock Gazette. On advertising “Billie” Mc Clain, as he is best known among the boys on the road, will direct affairs, and Bob Griffith, the base ball fanatic who went up against Charles Meyer’s aggregation last spring with a picked nine and came out discomfited (by the rain), will be given another chance to see what he can do in the base ball line. Maury Ste phens, 0. S. Lawrence and Oscar Knight are supporting him and perhaps he’ll do better. Talbot Field is assigned the music chairmanship upon his creditable work of last year, and Wylie Creel will be king bee in the Mardi Gras parade. Hon. Charles T. Greaves, the “insurgent” Republican candi date for governor three years ago, was complimented in being invited to act as toast-roaster at the annual banquet. The heads of the other com mittees are: Uniform, Henry Reinfeld; railroads, Tom Fain; donations, Henry Patterson; ho tels, E. Star Thompson. Robt. Cox will be chief of the receiv ing party and J. J. Prather grand marshal of the dress parade. CAPITAL STOCK TO BE PAID UP. The annual stockholders meet ing of the Newport Grocer Com pany was held in their handsome new building Monday afternoon and was well attended. The showing for the year was good and an eleven per cent dividend declared, in the face of a large loss by the fire of last summer. The increased business and stock of the company has made it necessary that the remainder of the $100,000 capital stock be paid up, as up to this year only 35 per cent of the capital had been paid up. With four new salesmen on the road, the year of 1905 promises a big increase in business for this popular wholesale house, of which Newport is proud. Aside from the value of those in their imme iiate employ as contributors to aur trade, such a house is a strong factor in bringing people and business to Newport. The old directors and officers were all re-elected and thus com mended for their successful man agement of the institution’s affairs. ANTI-TRUST BILL'S PASSAGE ASSURED. House to Give Governor a Chance to Sign His Long-Fostered Pet—Systematic Work for Reform School. Little Rock, Jan. 16.—It is now an assured fact that the King-Davis-Keel anti-trust bill : will be passed by the house to ; morrow morning and will receive ; the signature of the governor as j soon as presented. It does not become effective for 60 days, but i most of the old-line insurance companies have announced their intention to retire at once from I the Arkansas field. Simultaneously in the house and senate this morning bills were introduced to establish in the state a reform school for the care and maintenance of incorri gibles. For the purpose of car rying into effect the provisions of the measure $50,000 is appro- j priated out of the state treasury i and the governor, superintend-1 ent of public instruction and at torney general are to compose j the governing board of the insti-1 tut ion. In the senate the bill was of fered by Senator Moore, read the j first time and 500 copies ordered to be printed. In the house the bill was introduced by Represen tative McCollum and read for the first time. In the senate a bill by Senator Kilgore is to abolish all chancery districts in the state except the ! 1st, 3d, 4th and 10th. It was sent to the judiciary committee. Senator Butt offered thiffffforn ing a bill to appropriate $5,000 out of the state treasury to be used by the attorney general in employing counsel to assist him in prosecuting the anti-trust laws of the state. The bill, after being discussed for some time, went to a committee until the at torney general can be seen. WAITING TO SEE ENACTMENT’S EFFECT. Hoxie, Jan. 16.—Our people are anxious to see the effect of the operation of the Gov. Davis King-Logan anti-trust bill when it becomes a law. Many think it will be the knell of Gov. Davis’ political death. If the merchants are deprived of insurance it will be necessary to raise prices on their goods to the consumers for I the extra hazard they must take j in carrying their own insurance. LAWRENCE COUNTY ITEMS. Alter tour years oi Dima tig-1 ers, license has been granted by the county court as follows: Four saloons at Walnut Ridge, two at Hoxie, two at Sedgwick, one at Minturn and one at Alicia, on condition, however, that no Sun day business is done, gambling allowed or disorderly conduct permitted. Sunday morning the thermom eter stood 3 degrees below zero, the coldest weather here in sev-1 eral years. It was severe on both people and stock. FORGERS RAISING MONEY ORDERS.! -- Postmaster Holt of Little Rock i has reason to believe that a gang j of forgers is at work in Arkan sas raising money orders, and merchants and hotel men are warned against accepting orders presented by strangers. Recent ly A. Thompson, a Benton hotel proprietor, cashed an order for $29.90, issued at Little Rock, which had been drawn for 501 cents. -f- M. ---- Don't Travel; >ER The use of the Long Distance Telephone lines of this company will save you many a journey, lorn? end short—Every town of importance in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma ana Indian Territories within reach.
