Street Car Collision
JOHN KONING KILLED
IN AUTO ACCIDENT
John Koning, a highly respected
farmer living near Meridian, died at
St. Luke's hospital, Boise, Tuesday
morning, as a result of a collision
with an Interurlian car, at the Cole
school Nampa Y crossing near Boise
Monday eveniag. Mr. Koning was
riding in his auto alone, and for some
reason, which will never be known,
failed to stop.
Koning drove his automobile almost
head on into the street car at the
crossing. The impact was so great
that the front wheels of the auto
were lifted in the air and scraped
along the entire side of the car. Then
the machine fell on him. Mr. Koning
was removed to the hospital, his in
juries consisted of a bad scalp wound
a broken rib and shoulder. He had
been suffering from a bad heart and
the shock aggravated the trouble.
The accident occurred in an oiien
. country where Mr.Koning had a clear
view of the approaching car. He was
driving almost parallel to the track.
At the crossing the road makes a
turn northwest. Evidently Mr. Kon
ing attempted to get across the track.
The front end of the luterurban car
was damaged, the grab handle on the
baggage car was ripped off and also
the rear step.
The victim of the accident died
Tuesday noon. Before his death he
i« said to have voluntarily and freely
made a statement that no one was
to blame. Ed Hartman and Frank
Nourse were among the passengers
on the street car, and they seem to
think there \\as no carelessness on
the itart of the motorman.
Deceased leaves a wife and two
children, who have been residing
near Meridian. The family came
here a few months ago and purchas
„ ed land but afterwards sold the place
and had made all arrangements to re
turn to Montana.
Deceased was 40 years old. The
funeral will be held from Fry &
Summers undertaking parlors at
Boise this Friday afternoon at 2.00.
Rev. C. A. Quinn officiating. Burial
will l>e at Morris Hill.
NEW M. W. A. RATES TO
PLEASE OLD MEMBERS.
John Waggouer has returned from
Chicago, where he went as a delegate
.«front Idaho to the Modern Woodmen
head camp meeting. This is the lar
gest fraternal insurance company in
the world and they handle the prob
lems in a big wav. On July 1st the
patriotic assessment will be discon
tinued and in its place there will' be
a readjustment of rates which will
take care of a flu epidemic or similar
calamity in the future without itn
pairing the reserve fund.
The new
rates will be welcomed by the older
members, as the increase is slight in
* their case. With the new young
members ?5c per $1000 insurance is
the minimum. All members over 38
years of age will be assessed on basis!
of 38 years, at $1.50 per $1000.
HOLD STEADY^
•'.My impression is" sai«I one of Amer tea's live-stock Investigators, after
traveling through France autl F:nglan«l, "that the American farmer and
breeder ought to lurid steady in bis business of producing live-stock. He
should not plunge beyomi present op eratlous, but it would be unwise to
li«iuidnle on account of a fear of a serious decline in prices."
