The capture of the man. W. H.
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
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.
