No. 1S10 Second Avenue, Rock Island, 111. JNT E W DEATH OX THE RAIL. A shocking accident occurred at Mo-. line before daylight this morning, in which Perry Evans was the victim of a sudden and temble death. A freight train drawn by locomotive No. 27, of the C, B. & Q. road, George Wheatley, en gineer, was coming into Rock Island from Beardstown. The train reached Moline about 3 o'clock, and it w as necessary to throw a car out there. While ihe car was being switched out, l'erry Evans, a brakomau, walked between the cars to break a coupling. Whether he stepped on the brake beam and lost his balance, or slipped or tripped upon something on the ground is not, nor never will be definite ly known. The train was backing at a slow rate probably two miles an hour and the engineer and conductor, J. W. Studynin, were watching for the signal from the brakeinan when the coup ling was broken, to reverse the engine. Suddenly the lantern dispK-arcd and a jroan of agony was heard from beneath the cars. The engine was stopped and the train men rushed through the dark ness to the scene from which the sound came. Ihe hrakeman was found with his head terriibly mangled and cut on one rail, and his left leg on the other, broken and mutilated; he was dead. The body was taken out and conveyed to shelter, and the train came on to Rock Island. This morning Coroner Hawns went to Moline and empannelled a jury composed of B. B. Ciowder, I. G. Wells, Ira Fuller. John Lundgren, D. S. Lewis and Nels Peterson. The evidence of the train men showed the facts to be as above given, and a verdict was ren dered in this form: We, the jury, sworn to inquire into the death of Perry Evans, on oath do find that he came to his death by bcin" run ovct hv train No. 13, on the C, B. A Q. road. at Moline, at 2:55 a. m., September IS, ISSj, No blame attaches to the road or anyone running the train. The unfortunate young man was 35 years of aire, and his home was east of Adair, McDonald county. 111., his head quarters being at Beardstown. He has been on this division of the road two years. He was sober in his habits, and bore a good rcpuation among his em ployers and associates. Itlenttfyiiii; Oeore Eliot. ICInrjutii Tribune.
