Pieper, in the act of attempting to tamper with a switch so as to wreck Kock Island passenger train In Davenport Saturday night, brings back to the Democrat's memory some of the history of this man. It is right in line with the character that a great many railroad men have im puted to him, the Democrat says. and goes far to strengthen them in the belief that they have held ever since the Rock Island's No. 2 was derailed in the edge of Des Moines one night about three years ago the belief that Pieper did that piece of work. About that time the Rock. Island bad a little trouble with a few of its employes, and among them was Pie per. lie bad worked lor it as bag gageman and brakeman, and for some reason, the road claimed for good cause, he was discharged. It was known that he was bitter against the road, and it was reported that he had talked of revenge, or intimated that he would seek satisfaction. None of his acts were especially sus picious, however, and no watch was kept on him. One night the train mentioned was thrown from the rai's at a switch in the edge of the city of Des Moines. The place was a looelv one like the location or the switch neper was fooling with in Davenport Saturday night in his fiendish effort to cause a derailment and wreck and it was not at all impossible that the switch might have been fixed. At any rate me train leit the rails there and piled up, and when the trainmen and jostled passengers got together to pick up the pieces they found Pieper, this same Pieper, it is said by men wno Know, in the near neighborhood of the switch where the derailment occurred. Acqaltted Him. He was badly hurt, and as the in cident is recalled now, was insensible when found, but . became conscious soon after. He was asked how he came to be there, for it was claimed that he had not been in any of the cars on the train previous to the wreck, and his presence in the midst oi the scraps seemed suspicious and me more so in view or bis well known antipathy to the Bock Isltftd road He said that he had been riding on the platiorm, between the cars, and that he had been thrown off and nurt wnen the crash came. He was held as the cause of the wreck, but alter a trial was acquitted. His story coujd not be fairly refuted by tne company, and there was no post live evidence against him. Daaghtars of the Revolution. Rock Island is likely to have i society of the great patriotic order of Daughters of the Revolution. A preliminary meeting has been held of those eligible to membership and so far 12 to 15 have signified, their willingness to become members. The object of the society, which is similar to the Sons of the Revolu tion, is the perpetuation of familv lineage springing from the revolu tionary fathers and the purchase and maintenance of places of historic re. nown are collected.
