j the passenger, bound east, east, were al
lowed to phss some small stations, and
the result was a head-on collision, caus
ing the death of both train crews and a
number of passengers and wounding
scores of others. Nearly all of the dead
were identified. Charlie's body from
the hips down was horribly mangled and
the head was also wounded. He evi
dently died instantly.
A dispatch bearing the news of Char
lie's death was received at Craig Satur
day morning and his brother, T. J. Red-
mon, left that afternoon for the scene of
j the wreck. The remains were brought

Most of his young life was spent at
Craig. Several years ago he chose rail
roading as bis vocation.
His triends were numerous and the
news of his death came as a great shock
to the entire community. The funeral
services were held from the Presbyterian
church at 1 o'clock Thursday, November

Capture Horse Thieves.
Horse thieves are again operating on
quite an extensive scale in Holt county.
The organiz it ion of a vigilai.ee commit
tee is in order.
Two teams were stolen at Napier, one
about daybreak last Sunday morning
and the other a little after dark the same
evening. The thieves who stole the lat
ter outfit were captured several hours
later by a puse of farmers and they are
now in the jail at Oregon.
In the small hours of Sunday morn
ing, November 13, 1904, two horses be
longing to Ezra Martin and a buggy and
harness, the property of Roy Noland,
were taken from the barn at Napier.
The thieves m de good their escape, but
it is thought that thev and the team will
yet be overhauled, as diligent search
being made for them.
That night about dark the team and
buggy of H. D. Minton was taken from
the hitch rack at Nanier. A posse of
about fifty farmers, headed by Noland
and Minton, was quickly organized and
they started out on a 6vstematic hunt
for the thieves. They were rewarded
several hours later by overhauling the
buggy, driven by two young men, in the
rough country near the Missouri river.
The thieves sprang from the buggy and
took to a cornfield, but after an exciting
chase they were captured and the next
morning were taken to the county jail
xne tmeves proved to oe two young
men, strangers, who have been working
at the Hunt saw mill in the neighbor
hood for several weeks. We did not
learn their names or where they came
from. No doubt they belong to an or
ganized gang of horse thieves and the
farmers who effected their capture are
to be congratulated. Jeffer6onian.
On being lodged in jail they gave their
names as John Howard and George
Clemene, but Sheriff Williams was not
satisfied, and having received a descrip
tion of two men, wanted at Fort Crook,
Neb., for desertion from the regular
army, he compared the men with the de
scription, and they agreed so completely
that the story would not wash, and be
then told them who they were their
names under enlistment being James I.
E lis and Loyd Sheik. They then ad
mitted that Sheriff Williams was cor
'oot. They will be tried at the coming
term of our circuit court, which meets
Monday, January 2, 1905.
