THREE RILLED IN A WRECK Trio of Man Lose Their Lives in Collision on Book Island. ENGINEER JOHNSON MANAGES TO ESCAPE Demi Men Are Tcrrllitr Seali1ei1 Ilrnlied nnd Mangled l > r Encas ing Mtcnm nnd Flying i Ucbrla. There was a heafl-cnd collision between two freight trains , one an extra anil the other a regular , on the Chicago , Rock Inland & Pacific railroad near the old Chautauqua grounds , about three miles east of Council Bluffs at 6:30 : Tuesday morning. It resulted In the killing of three persons , one engineer and two firemen. The dead are : J. W. TAYLOU , engineer on extra freight train. JOHN STONE , flreman onextra freight train. JOHN CALDWBL/L , flreman on regular freight train , No. EC. All three of the men killed lived at Val ley Junction. The wreck occuned about 125 yards west of the Rock Island switch , where the extra freight which was In charge of Conductor J. Hanlfen should have side tracked to allow the regular freight going cast to pass. The extra freight through sorao mistake or neglect of train orders failed to sidetrack , and the result was that the two trains como together , with terrible force. The cxtrfc freight being the her.vler of the two , forced the regular back a'oout forty or fifty yards. Neither of the two engines left the track , but the tenders of both Tvore forced back on the cars behind and the cabs forced beneath the tenders. Doth engines wcro badly wrecked and two box cars of the reg ular freight were thrown from their trucks Into the ditch. Johnion Snvc III * Life. The regular freight was In charge of Conductor M. Drew and Engineer Murray Johnson. Johnson , when ho saw that a col lision was inevitable , after reversing his engine , jumped from the loft side of the cab and managed to escape with but a few slight brulsoi. His flreman , John Caldwell , also jumped , but In some manner was etruok by one of the cars of hla own train and his neek was broken. Engineer Taylor of the extra was pinned down In his cab under tbo tender. He was badly < mished about the abdomen and lower portion's of the body ; he was also somewhat scalded about the upper portions of his body. It was a couple of hours before he could bo extricated. John Stone , the flreman , was wedged In between the cab and the tender. His head was badly crushed end his right cheek was torn open. His loft arm was torn off at the shoulder and In addition to being badly scalded , bis left thigh was almost cut off. His death was evidently Instantaneous. The Rock Island passenger No. 5 came In over the Milwaukee tracks. j Forwot Abont the Order * . 1 Engineer Taylor , although terribly I crushed and mangled about the lower por- ' tlon of hla body , rcalned consciousness until . ho was taken out , but died before he could bo placed In the car to be taken to Council Bluffs. His Injuries had evidently numbed the lower limbs and he did not realize how badly he was hurt. In answer to questions of those Nho were working to extricate htm , he replied that he guessed he was all right , that only one of his legs seemed injured ; he thought ho would pull through all right. To some of the men working round him ho Is said to have stated that the blame for the collision was hie ; that he had order * to look out for all , regular train * , but bad forgotten all about No. 56. Taylor was a married man , 35 years of age and leaves a wife and daughter , & years of ago. Fireman Caldwell of the regular freight was 24 years of age and leaves a wife and child. a 4-year-old Fireman John Stone of the extra freight had only been with the road about two months and little Is known about him at this end of the line. Head Brakeman Bert Reynolds of the regular freight had a narrow escape. He was on the top of the forward car of his train and went with It Into the ditch , but as It turned over ho was thrown out of the way and managed to escape with nothing tnoro serious than a few bruises. Charles Gould , one of the brakeman on the extra , was thrown through a window of the cab and received Injuries to his boulders , which , however , are not serious. Coroner Treynor Impaneled th * follow ing Jury : Frank Levlne , H. O. McOeo nnd W. S. Homer. The Inquest will bo held this morning at 9 o'clock. . Local officials * of the Rock Island say that the regular freight train castbound had the right of way and that the extra should have sidetracked at the Chautauqua switch. Conductor Hanlfen , who was In charge of the extra , could not bo seen afle'r the collision. GROUND FOR FREIGHT DEPOT llllnoltt Central llnllrond Company Acquire * n tllnck of Grantid Formerly Occupied l > > - Cixly. For pome tlmo past Robert Stuart of Chicago cage has been , buying up property in block 13 , Kouutzo & Ruth's addition. It is in this block that the Cady Lumber company's > ards are and In December the site occupied by the yards was bought by Mr. Stuart. The purpose of his purchases has now been made public. A well known business man , who hat been on the Insideof the deal , admitted that Stuart has been merely the instrument through which iho Illinois Central Railroad company It rapidly acquiring the block. Practically the Cady Lumber company Is authority for this itself. Little by little the block has been acquired until only a third of it remains. Since the purchase of the Cady com pany's tract , consisting of the southern twelve lots , the railroad company has bought six of the sixteen lots north of the lumber yards , 'they are lots 1 , 5 , 8 , 9 , 13 nd 16 and. as can be seen , arc more or les scattered. It Is understood that the object of buying this property Is to secure a site for a freight depot and yards. The Illinois Cen tral will use the Union Pacific depot for Its passenger business , but needs a 'block ' of real estate for Ita-frelght business. The streets bounding the block mentioned are Mason , , Eighteenth-Pierce and Seven teenth. The Union Pacific tracks run along the southeast corner. SALE OF THE ALTON HOAD IS OFF.

OMAHA , 16th & Douglas Sts. \o Double Wedding Ceremony. GRAFTON. Neb. . Jan. 10. To the Editor of The Bee : In an article contained in The Sunday Bee under the heading ot "Connubl- 1 alltles" it Is stated , relative to Madame Pattl's approaching marriage , that a double I religious ceremonial is to be conducted. I was very much surprised at the statement and wondered exceedingly how such a thing I could be under the laws ot the Catholic church. I find that the statement 1n The Sunday Bee Is not correct , as Is evident from the following "letter " of Right Rev. Francis Mostyn , Catholic bishop of Menevla , to the London Dallv News : I "Sir Mv attention has been called to a | statement mode in several of the London papers to the effect that at the approaching weddlns of Madame Pattl-Nlcollni to Baron Cederetrom there will be a Protestant as well as a Catholic marriage ceremony. As bishop of the Catholic diocese in which Madam * Pattl-Nlcollni resides may I ask you to contradict this statement. Such doable ceremony , being contrary to the disci pline of the Catholic church , could not be allowed and I am authorized by Madame Pattl-Nlcollni to state that , as a matter of fact , at her wedding there will be none other than a Catholic marriage ceremony. " By Inserting the above you will not only much obltgo the undersigned , but relieve the wondering minds of all Catholics who have read the article In the Sunday Bee. I am yours very truly. D.

To the Editor of The Bee : I have felt the heavy hand ot Police Judge Gordon and feel that some of his in justice should be shown up. Last September the two young children of Bob Houarhton were playing In my yard and swinging on the gate. I told them to get oil or I would make them. They went home crying and told their father I had struck them. He came up to the. house and used very foul language and I told him If ho called me such name * again , I would slap him. He at once repeated the foul epithets nnd I started toward him with my hand up- Hfted and he reached out and struck mo in the mouth. The brutal coward was not sat isfied with that , but struck me several times , knocking me down and beating me like n dog. He had to be pulled away before he would stop. Complaint was made at Judge Gor don's court. He beard the evidence and continued the case for thirty days. At the end of thirty days I went to the court to see what he was going to do , nnd he put It over for another thirty day § and at the end of that time I went back again to the court and he dismissed the case.
