Yesterday morning, a week ago, about two hundred yards from Joy ner's Crossing, which is about two miles above Elm City, R. J. Williams was found dead on the railroad, with a large bruise on his hip. Coroner Harris was summoned and at the in quest, witnesses stated that Williams was seen drinking the night before at Elm City. This and other evidence caused the jury to believe that the deceased left Elm City intoxicated or partly so, and on reaching that point sat down, and going to Bleep, was killed by train No. 35 a Southbound passenger; and so they returned a verdict accordingly. Upon the strength of this verdict, the heirs of R. J. Williams have retained counsel and will enter suit against the railroad for the death of the man, claiming, it is supposed.that the engi neer should have seen the man on the track. The railroad authorites were re presented at the inquest.and the engi neer of 35 says that if the man had been on the track he would have been seen. The railroad claims that the man was not killed by the train. N. & I. Commencement.
