Iliiillcor * * Murderous Itiillot rinnlly Cnuirs the Urntli ot Henry Jltlicr Mnjjlo City < 3o Blt | , Swan Gustavson , a single man and a car- pc'itor employed at the Klkhorn's now round house , met with n shocking and fatal accident at 0:10 : yesterday morning on the Vnlon Pacific tracks at K street. Tom Toy , a young man living at Twenty- seventh and IJupont streets in Omaha , was on his way to this city and was following the tracks. Just as ho ncarcd 1C street ho aw something which appeared llko a shadow Hash up Into the air directly in front of n lanro switch engine ns It went whlzjlng p.ist the crossing. His Impression was that it was a man , but the light was so dim that ho could not dis- thiKUlsh anything dellnltc. The switch tnglilo was going north and did not slop. Mr. Toy went a little further when ho saw \\haiappoarcdtoho a pile of waste lying by the track. Thinking this was what ho saw going up Into the air ho turned It over. Mixed up In a mass of torn clothing uere the mangled remains of a man. Fifty feet fur ther on ho found the head. Death had been Instantaneous. The unfortunate man was only a little dis tance from home , and was on his way to work , as the coffee In his dinner bucket was still warm. Both arms wcro completely severed and broken and the boily from the thighs up was mashed to a pulp. The llvor was torn fron. the body and was picked up twenty-live feet from the head. The limbs \\urotnlBtodand broken. The head was Bovorril as smoothly as though It had been done with a sharp Unite , and the expression on the fnco was unchanged and perfectly natural. 'ITorq was not a scratch or brulso on the face or head. Mr. Toy hastened to the station to give the alarm. Coroner Maul was notified and gave instructions to Undertaker Brewer to remove the remains to his morgue. A great many persons viewed the ghastly remains at the morgue , but no ono rccog- nl7L'd the victim until last evening. Some of the railroad men are of the opinion that the man was knocked down and killed by a switch engine and then run over by a freight train afterwards. The morning was foggy and it was perhaps on this ac count the victim did not see the engine that killed him. The strange part of the killing Is that the engineer did not know of the ac cident. An inquest will ho held at 0 o'clock this morning. Gustavson was about DO years old. miiH'S : Mrs. Ituilliciir'H Victim lllcd of Ills In- Jnrli-n I'unonil Arrungpinont' ) . At an early hour yesterday morning Henry Uciscr , the young man who was shot In Bouth Omaha by Mrs. Elols Kudlgcr , died at the Presbyterian hospital m Omaha. The remains were removed atoncotothc morgue. At the time of the shooting it was thought that Hciscr could not live twenty- four hours , but though the physicians had no hopes of recovery they did all they could to prolong the patient's life and he lived just seven weeks , Coroner Maul had a postmortem held on the remains yesterday forenoon and at 2 o'clock today an inquest will bo held. The remains of Holsor were brought to Bouth Omaha last evening and turned over to Undertakers Brewer and Sloan. Some time npo Mr. Uciscr sent for Mr. Sloan and gave him detailed instructions in regard to lion and where ho wished to bo buried. Ho iiskiul that ho bo buried in the Albright-cem etery and described i.ibont what sort of caskct'ho perforred. Ho also wished to bo buried on Sunday if such a thing was possl bio and wished to have the funeral con ducted from the Presbyterian church in this city. city.All All of his requests will bo grantcU.as nearly as possible. Mr. Sloan is a member of the 1 toyal Arcanum and the funeral will bo conducted under the auspices of that order. Mr. Reiser stated to Mr. Sloan that ho hart left an itemized account of ail his indebted ness for his cousin , whom ho requested to pay with the Insurance money that will c'omo from the Royal Arcanum. The bal ance ) io has willed shall go to his father. According to this statement the woman in Illinois who hab been writing that she uus Kelsor's xvjfo will get loft. Heiser pro claimed to the last that ho was never mar ried to any woman. The man had suffered untold agony lor the last seven weeks. He had rcali/.rd all the time that lie could never pet well and talked chcerlully of death.

NOT S FROM THE HEADSMAN. Federal Olllrluls llc r of DnlngB nt Wash ington Mr. Ciiiioyor'n statement. Surveyor of the Port Alexander was not perceptibly disturbed by the Washington dispatch in the papers yesterday which stated that his oftlcial decapitation hnd been an nounced. Tills ho considers a nioro formal ity which has r.o further significance than that his resignation will bo demanded at the end of the year when his term expires. Mr. Alexander docs not consider as author itative the Btau'inr.nt that James McShann will stop into his ofllcial hlioos. Ho believes that the identity of the next occupant of the ofllco is still a matter of conjecture and that no one lias as yet a cinch on the appoint ment. Mr. Charles Conoycr In speaking of the reports from Wn.snington salu that ho know nothing of the plan to prelcr charges against Postmaster Clnrkson "Senator Mandcrson is mistaken , however , " said Mr. Cono.vor , "In Ills statement that Mr. Clarkson's pre decessor was allowed to servo the full four years of his commission. Tlio fact is that Con Gallagher served less than thrco years. Ho was appointed on January 18 , 18SS , and his term would have expired on January 18 , ISIW , but his resignation was asked for , through Senator Mandurson's efforts , and Major Clarkson was appointed to succeed him on October OS , Ib'JO , when ho had served but two years and nine months , instead of four years , as stated by Senator Mandcr son.
