Marysville Daily Appeal - 6/11/1891, p3 - A Young Woman Suicides - She Accuses Her Stepfather of a Serious Crime - Ella Davis, or Beal, a Simple Minded Young Woman, Takes Arsenic and Dies - Wheatland has a sensation which has resulted in the death of Ella Davis a girl about 20 years of age, and which will cover with disgrace and infamy her stepfather Bill Beal.  The facts of the case which were being investigated last evening by Coroner Bevan are as follows:  - On last Tuesday evening Beal alleged that he caught Ella Davis in a compromising position with Frank Wallace.  He and Wallace had a fight in front of the house, after which Beal went inside the house.  When Ella entered the house she claimed that her stepfather hit her with some instrument, and commenced to abuse her in a most unmerciful manner.  The unfortunate girl then went into her room and took a large dose of arsenic mixed with whisky.  Her serious condition was soon ascertained by her neighbors and the doctors were sent for.  They had little difficulty in ascertaining that she had taken poison, and that her condition was very critical.  The stomach pump was used, and the girl was soon greatly relieved of the intense pain from which she suffered.  They left her bedside and went home, thinking that she was on the road to recovery. - Soon after the doctors had left Ella made a statement in the presence of a number of citizens, accusing Bill Beal, her stepfather, of being the father of her child, which is about two years old. - The unfortunate girl grew worse yesterday, and expired in terrible agony about 4 o'clock in the afternoon. - Beal was soon after on the streets in a drunken condition. - It will be remembered that Ella Davis visited this city last April, and was followed around the levee one evening by a gang of depraved young men who previously had run her into a barn across the slough.  Marshal Maben on hearing of her conduct had her brought to the police office, and when searched some vulgar letters and pictures were found on her person.  She was taken to a hotel and locked up until the south-bound Oregon express arrived, when she was escorted on board and shipped to Wheatland.  She claimed that she had come to Marysville to get married to a well-known resident of Chico. - The citizens of Wheatland are a moral and religious people, and should not be satisfied until this terrible crime is revenged.  The laws of this State have been outraged, decency has been shocked, and moralty[sic] discarded.  Old man Bill Beal has been accused by this dying girl of a terrible crime, and should not try to soothe his conscience by getting drunk.  Some startling revelations are expected at the inquest, which Coroner Bevan was to hold last night.

Marysville Daily Democrat; Thursday Evening; 2 Jul. 1891; Vol. XIV, No. 15: -  A VICTIM OF HEAT -  An Old Man Drops Dead on the Farm of J. Peters - Another probable victim of the heat occurred in Sutter County last evening. Thomas Davis, who was employed on the farm of Joseph Peters below Yuba City complained considerably Tuesday, but went to work as usual yesterday morning. In the afternoon he again complained of being overheated, but continued about his work. Last evening he was caring for some horses in the stable when he dropped dead. - A few years ago Thomas Davis was quite well to do in property and money, but he died poor having been at work for some time past as a common laborer for small wages. - Many of the readers of the Democrat will remember Mr. Davis as a man who about twelve years ago married a widow lady named Wallace, who kept a boarding house on E Street in this city. He then owned a good farm and fine residence in Sutter County adjoining the land of John McAlpine, and after the wedding they moved to the farm and for several years they continued to live there, but the wife and daughters spent money faster than the old man could make it, and finally the land was sold and he was left with nothing, though he had been well off.

Daily Appeal – 4/09/1879 – Died – In Strawberry Valley, April 1st, Mr. William H. Davey, aged 56 years.

IN MEMORIAM – Mr. William Davey, whose death has caused sorrow to every heart in our little village was extensively known throughout the country. He was a native of Norway and followed a sea-faring life from the age of fourteen years, until he came to California in 1857. His energy and indomitable will, and perseverance made his efforts a success in all the various callings he pursued yet he met with many reverses which would have discouraged a man of less determination. He became a proprietor of the Columbus House in 1862. He was an honorable and upright man in his business transactions , and a most excellent citizen. Public spirited, giving generously wherever a helping hand was needed, the poor and distressed at his own door, or far away, called never in vain on him for aid. He was ever the steadfast friend of the country of his adoption, no heart beat truer to its weal. The vacancy which his untimely departure has caused, will long remain unfilled, and his death be lamented by a large circle of warm friends. He was buried April 3d, in Lone Mountain Cemetery. (B. S.)

The remains were taken to Oroville Tuesday and forwarded to San Francisco for interment in the Lone Mountain cemetery. (B. S.)

DAY, G. B. 

Sacramento Union - 2/20/1852 - Up-River News – We are indebted to Gregory for a copy of the Marysville Herald, of yesterday. The official returns of the late election for Assemblyman, of Yuba county, gave Cook ( W. ) a majority of 162 votes over McCann, ( Dem. ). -  Indian Murders.----On the road between Nelson’s creek and Baker’s ranch, a man by the name of Thomas Kerns, was killed by the Indians, within 400 yards of a ranch. The circumstances becoming, a party of whites collected the next day, came upon an Indian camp and killed, it is stated, some six or eight of the tribe. The body of the murdered man was found and decently buried. On Monday a man named G. B. Day, and said to be a minister, while at work at the headwaters of Dry creek , four miles from Tolles’ diggings, mining, was attacked and murdered by a party of Indians, and thrown into the hole which he was working.---Seventeen arrows were found sticking in his person. The citizens of Nathes and Tolles’ upon learning the facts of this last murder, assembled in considerable numbers, and went out with determination of having revenge. They made a demonstration upon an Indian encampment near Tolles’, and would have proceeded to unjustifiable extremities, but for the assurances of the chiefs that the murderers would be given up. The Americans returned with several prisoners, but whether they have the guilty parties or not is a question still to be determined.  (B. S.)

F. Petty, another county road department employe, said that he heard Day shout as dirt and rocks from the excavation struck him and as he began to fall forward from the weight of the material.  Petty estimated that the rock and dirt weighed between 300 and 400 pounds. - Petty said he summoned Orn Simmons, a tractor driver, who was nearby, and that they immediately began removing the cave-in from the victim. - Simmons gave similar testimony. - Oscar Hedlund, patrolman, said that Day barely had gone to work when the material slipped into the 5 foot deep cut, approximately 13 feet wide.  There was no overhang, he said, adding that the cut was being made across the flat surface of an old road.  Day had just started digging a rock from the center of the cut when the slide occurred. - "It seemed as though it was waiting there for him," said Hedlund. - Hedlund testified he was on a job at Swede's Flat at the time of the accident, and did not know of it until later. - Bill Cameron, who lives three miles below Harts Mill, and who was watching the work, said the dirt and rocks seemed to cover Day to a point just below the shoulders.  He was prone, he said. - Dr. L. A. Jacoby testified that death had occurred within a few minutes, resulting from a fracture of the pelvis.  Although he expressed the opinion that Day was alive when removed from the cut, the physician said that life was extinct when he met the ambulance which was bringing Day from the accident scene.  He made the examination about three miles from Harts Mill. - Lloyd Hewitt of Yuba City, district attorney of Sutter county, attended the hearing as an attorney representing Mrs. Day. - Jurors were C. L. Nelson, foreman; E. L. McCoy, Charles L. Gipson, Earl E. Tharraldon, C. O. Dodge, A. Blaine, Langley A. Moon and James Knox.

The  following is taken from an account of a snow slide at Monte Cristo in early March of 1911 which appeared in the Mountain Messenger of March 11, 1911, in which John Deal lost his life: - In a snow slide at  Monte Cristo, Tuesday morning, March 7th, John Deal was swept to his death, and Tony Peckwith, John Noland, Ira Olds, L. P. Hansen, and Jake Brand, narrowly escaped.  The men had gone from Monte Cristo to the White Bear mine, and after completing this work they were returning to Monte Cristo and were crossing a sag in a small ravine just south of the Monte Cristo diggings when the snow broke away just above them.  Deal, Hansen, Brand, and Olds were caught in the slide but Peckwith and Noland managed to escape being engulfed. - The account relates:  "The last any one of the boys saw of John Deal he was standing almost on his head in the sliding snow with half his body buried.  His feet stuck straight up in the air with his snowshoes still on them, and his body was being carried along down toward Whiskey Creek like the wind."  Peckwith rushed back to Monte Cristo to get shovels and help, and Noland went to the White Bear mine to get help from the men there.  Hansen and Brand were carried down 350 feet and Olds not so far, but all three were only partially buried. - They all worked at searching for Deal's body, working until well after dark, but were unable to locate him although they found his snowshoes near the bottom of the slide. - In the morning the men left for Downieville to get help, and a large group of volunteer workers from the town made the trip to Monte Cristo to search for the body, and men from the White Bear and Telegraph mines, including Albert Morse, John Danari, Heyward Brown, Joe Thomas, and Ira Olds, also joined the search. - "After trenching about 25 feet Deal's body was found under about four feet of snow" and being 400 feet below the point of origin of the slide. - Within a few days of the above snow slide, another slide at the Telegraph Mine demolished the quartz mill at the mine, but no one was injured.  The mill had been rebuilt three years previously which in turn had replaced a mill that had been destroyed in a snow slide the winter before. - The same Tuesday of the Monte Cristo slide a snow slide occurred in Slug Canyon, a half mile south of Downieville, and deposited snow to a depth of "over sixty feet" in the canyon.  (Transcribed and submitted by Sharon (Deal) Suckow.)

Stockton Daily Independent - 10/12/1863 - C.E. DeLONG - The Sacramento 'Bee' of the 8th instant states that C.E. DeLONG, late a Senator from Yuba county, died of erysipelas, at Virginia City, on the 7th.

Weekly Appeal – 11/03/1876, Pg. 4 – [ From Friday’s Daily ] – Death of Hon. Charles E. DeLong.---The Appeal received yesterday afternoon the following telegram, dated Virginia City, October 28th: “E. DeLong died at five minutes past 11 o’clock this morning, of billious-typhoid fever.” This sad news spread rapidly through the city, causing as much surprise as regret. No former resident of this city was held in higher respect by the mass of our people than Charley DeLong. He was familiarly called “our boy”, because here at an early day he was one of us, and here he stepped upon the first rung ot the ladder of distinction. At an early day, and when a mere boy he was chosen to represent Yuba county in the legislature. In filling that trust Mr. DeLong was educated to a higher intellectual position, and his progression and advancement was rapid. He was soon after admitted to the bar, and became an ornament to the legal profession. The next honor bestowed upon young DeLong was a commission to Japan as minister Plenipotentiary of the United States. Retiring from that mission, he resumed the practice of law at Virginia City, where no man stood higher and commanded more influence. The social qualities of the deceased were known to us all. Ever dignified, yet a hand readily extended to all his old companions in earlier days. This entire community mourns his loss, as flags at half mast evidenced yesterday on the receipt of the sad news. And if all his old friends feel this affliction keenly, what must be the grief of those whose ties of consanguinity are so suddenly broken ? The remains will be brought to the city for interment on Sunday, and the funeral will take place from the Presbyterian church on Sunday afternoon. (B.S.) 

(Same paper, same page ) – Funeral of Charles E. DeLong.---The body of Charles E. DeLong , arrived in this city by special train from the Junction on Sunday morning at 8:40, in charge of the following Masonic and Pioneer escort: Knights, R. T. Mullard, E. T. Strothers, and S. W. Rawlings---Pioneers, E. H. Taylor, Les McGowan, W. J. Ford and Augustus Lewis. The escort and body were received by ten Knights Templar under command of Past Grand Commander, W. C. Belcher. The body arrived in a metallic casket, and was removed to the hearse in waiting, and the procession formed and moved to the residence of Mrs. N. E. Whiteside. The funeral services were appointed at 2 o’clock P. M., and at this hour the house was filled with ladies, and the religious services, conducted by the Rev. Wm. McPheeters, of the M. E. Church, were commenced. In the midst of these ceremonies the Masonic delegation arrived, headed by the Knights Templar, in full uniform, in all numbering about 100, together with a large delegation of old firemen. The Masonic line took position outside the residence, as it was impossible to gain admission, or within hearing of the voice of the officiating clergyman. At the close of the able and appropriate remarks of Rev. W. McPheeters, the casket was opened and the corpse exposed to view friends. The casket occupied a central position in the main parlor, and bore the sword, gloves and regalia of the deceased Knight, together with floral tributes. At the close of viewing the body, the procession formed and moved to the City Cemetery, the Knights, Masonic fraternity and old firemen taking a special train at the Oroville depot, and the vehicles thirty-eight in number, proceeding by the carriage way. When the procession reached the Cemetery it was found largely occupied by ladies who had preceded the procession. The pall-bearers consisted of the following Knight Templars and Pioneers. A. J. Binney, Dr. E. T. Wilkens, William Fletcher and N. D. Rideout, of Marysville; C. C. Mason, of Chico; E. S. Ruggles, of Oroville; R. T. Mullard, E. T. Strothers and L. W. Rawlings, of Virginia City, as Knights: Pioneers---R. H. Taylor, L. McGowan and W. J. Ford, of Virginia City, and Augustus Lewis, of Carson City. The Masonic fraternity formed in line near the family vault of J. B. McDonald, with the Knights in front. Then followed the long, interesting and affecting burial service of the Knights Templar, the same being conducted by Past Grand Commander W. C. Belcher and Dr. C. E. Stone, as Prelate. These services were interspersed by funeral dirges sung by a quartette composed of C. A. Stratton, A. W. Cutts, E. A. Belcher and E. A. Davis. At the conclusion the casket was placed in the vault, when a benediction was pronounced by Rev. McPheeters. The funeral was one of the largest held in the city for years, and the deepest sympathy was manifested on the occasion by all our citizens.  (B.S.)

Divver as man, citizen, official and father can not be measured in words.  Eulogy to him must indeed be painted by a master of colors, by an artist of words, and then much might be added by the commoner, one of whom he was. - Coming to Marysville with his parents in 1886, young Divver attended the grammar school until  he was 13 years of age, when he became a clerk of Walsh & Keller, pioneer merchants.  Later he became a clerk in a grocery store. - Divver was born in Boston, Mass., March 8, 1860, and was 59 years and six months of age when he died.  His parents were Michael and Mary Divver. - Takes Up Life's Work - After serving as a clerk for several years, Captain Divver chose as his life's work that of a mechanic, and was for three years and six months employed in the Empire foundry and the old Marysville foundry as machinist. - When the Marysville Woolen Mills opened Captain Divver became master mechanic after working for some time as a machinist in that mill.  Then in 1896 he became chief engineer of the Buckeye Mills and later was given added responsibility and honor by the appointment as chief electrician, showing his aptitude for things mechanical. - As an artisan competent to master the jobs which he undertook he had few equals, and no superiors in this section of California. - Was Chief City Engineer - Captain Divver later became chief engineer of the Marysville fire department, and held that position for many years, serving his fellow citizens in an altruistic capacity for the first time. - Later he was destined to become city councilman and during his term of office gave much of his time and thought practically gratis to the welfare of his home city and the benefit of its citizens. - It was on October 6, 1886, that Captain Divver won the hand of Miss Catherine Carr, a native daughter of Marysville, whose father, Hugh Carr, was an early settler.  To the union of Phillip J. Divver there came two childrren, Phil J. Divver, Jr., and Mrs. Raymond Rane, both of whom survive their father. - Elected City Councilman - Captain Divver was elected city councilman in 1900, and was again chosen for that office in 1902, serving the two terms with faithfulness and efficiency. - He succeeded A. C. Irwin as Yuba County supervisor in December, 1902, having been appointed by Governor Gage to fill the term left vacant by Irwin's resignation.  In November, 1904, Divver was elected to the office by the citizens of the county and his tenure of office was marked with the same fidelity and competent action that shows through all his public and private endeavors. - He was appointed to succeed J. F. Eastman as county clerk in 1910 and was elected to the office for two terms, one in 1912 and again in 1918. - It was as a soldier that Captain Phillip J. Divver found his "hobby" and satisfied in a measure his eagerness to serve his countrymen. - He joined his country's service as a member of  G Company, Eighth California Regulars in 1888, and was transferred to Company D, of the Second Regiment, when the California Regulars were reorganized.  He was a sergeant of Company C when that company won the championship marksmanship contest here in 1895.  He was a Spanish-American war veteran, and he also served as a sergeant in Company D.  He also was captain of the drill team of the Foresters and Woodmen, and took many prizes with the teams. - His affiliations with fraternal organizations were marked with election to trusted offices in the lodges.  He was treasurer of Marysville Lodge No. 783, B.P.O.E., at the time of his death; Past Chief Ranger of Court Pride, No. 34, Foresters of America; member Silver Oak Camp, Woodmen of the World, and served as president of Local Union No. 24, Flour and Cereal Mill Employees.  He was a charter member of Marysville Council, No. 1869, Knights of Columbus, who will attend the funeral in a body. - It was only a few days ago that Captain Divver attended to his duties as county clerk with his regular promptness and cheery smile, although he had been suffering from ill health. - He left Marysville for San Francisco accompanied by Mrs. Divver to seek surgical and medical aid, and in a letter received by Deputy County Clerk William M. Strief, Friday morning, he stated the doctors were soon to operate for goitre.  His demise came, however, before the operation could take place. - Funeral services will be directed by Kelly Bros. at the home at 423 B street, at 9:40 a.m. Tuesday, and proceed to St. Joseph's Catholic church, where requiem mass will be said by Rev. Father Patrick Guerin at 10 o'clock.  Interment will be in the Catholic cemetery.  The Knights of Columbus will attend in a body.

Marysville Daily Appeal-December 14, 1897-A SAD DEATH-A Bride of But Three Months is Called From Earthly Scenes and Loving Friends- Mrs. Charles Tuttle of Auburn, better know hereabouts as Mattie DIXON that was, died at an early hour yesterday morning at the home of her sister, Mrs. S. Yore; at the Oregon House. The deceased was an exceptionally bright woman whose life has been past largely in educational pursuits. She taught school at lake Tahoe one term, and later in Contra Costa county, and for the past six years in Placer county. Her talents were recognized by the Board of Supervisors of that county, who elected her a member of the County Board of Education. About two months ago she was taken ill at Auburn with typhoid fever, and when able to leave her bed she came to this city on her way to her old home at the Oregon House with hopes of being able to recruit her health. But it was willed otherwise as shortly after reaching her destination she breathed her last surrounded by those she loved best on earth, a husband to whom she was fondly attached, and brothers and sisters who worshipped her. Home had always been her altar, and God ordained that she should bid adieu to all earthly care at the scene of her childhood’s days. She was as patient in suffering as in the school room, and the announcement of her demise will be heard with feelings of deep regrets by those whom she has taught in years gone by. The deceased lady had many friends in this city. She leaves a husband, who is a son of Ex-Judge C. A. Tuttle of Placer county, to whom she had been married but a few months and the following brothers and sisters to mourn her loss.

Rabbit Creek Journal – 1/04/2006 Pg. 6 – Kerry Guy Michael Dork was born on June 2, 1952 in Albany, CA. He was raised, lived and passed in Brownsville on Dec. 19, 2006. AKA Gabriel Peachy Flanders, Kerry loved animals and children alike and treated them all equally well. As he crisscrossed his revered mountains most often on foot with his trusty companion, Stain, Kerry traveled to visit family and friends all the while collecting arrowheads and odd-shaped pieces of wood for his famous “Kerry” art. Reverend Kerry performed many of the local weddings in the area and was welcomed by nearly everyone else, too. Kerry loved his family, cherished his friends, and adored his side-kick, Stain; however, there is little doubt that in recent months Kerry valued as his greatest achievement that of reuniting with his beloved son. A Pied Piper to kids and creatures, Kerry spent many hours writing and telling his stories to children. He attended most of the local festivals and gatherings and enjoyed doing his face-painting on his willing subjects. Although he traveled away often enough, Kerry always came back home to his beloved mountains. And here he will remain in our hills, and in our minds, and in our hearts.  (B.S.)

Marysville Evening Democrat - 4/8/1915, p1 - Despondent Man Shot Himself In The Right Temple - Gus Doukas Thought Life Not Worth Living After Losing His Hearing - Despondent because he had become totally deaf, Gus Doukas, employed as second cook at the S. P. Restaurant on A street, shot himself at an early hour Thursday morning, and his remains are now at Kelly Bros.' undertaking parlors.  Doukas was a native of Greece and aged 25 years.  His aged father and mother and two sisters are living in Greece, and a brother, John, lives in Sacramento. - Before coming to this city to work for his uncle, Jim Trantos of the S. P. restaurant, Doukas resided for a time in New York.  But when the war broke out between his country and the Turks, he immediately returned to Greece and joined an artillery company.  He served all through the war with the  Turks, and also in the war following against the Bulgarians, and was a brave soldier.  It was while serving as an artilleryman that he became deaf from the terrible noise of cannonading, as he fought in several battles. - After the close of the war he returned to the United States, and later came to this city, where he had resided about one year, during which time he made many friends because of his quiet and gentlemanly demeanor.  He was a young man of considerable education and felt keenly his affliction because it deprived him of following a more ambitious calling.  He thought much of his parents to whom he sent a large part of his earnings. - The rash act must have been a sudden impulse, as he had dressed himself at his room on A street, between Sixth and Seventh, and had evidently walked as far as the door to go out when he killed himself.  In one hand he held a partly smoked cigarette between his fingers when found dead. - Doukas shot himself through the right temple with a thirty-eight caliber revolver, the bullet being visible beneath the hair on the left top side of the head.  He has been in the United States about nine months, and in Marysville about six months.  Doukas seemed to be in a perfectly good humor Wednesday night and sat in his room and chatted with several of his countrymen.  He complained last night of having a slight headache. - A jury composed of the following:  Ray Merle, foreman, Albert Menz, W. F. Corey, H. Richardson, G. L. McIntosh and Frank Hetherington, heard the inquest conducted by Coroner J. K. Kelly this morning, and rendered a verdict in which they stated that "the deceased, Gus Doukas, aged 25 years, and a native of Greece, met death at his home on A street, between Sixth and Seventh, in the city of Marysville, Thursday morning, April 8, 1915, from a gunshot wound in his head, self-inflicted with suicidal intent." - His uncle, James Trantos, feels very sad over the affair, and his friends extend their sympathy.  Mr. Trantos has lived here for 8 or 9 years and is a good citizen and liked by all who know him. - His brother arrived this afternoon from Sacramento, and will make arrangements with Kelly Bros. for the disposition of the remains and the funeral services.

Funeral arrangements are in charge of Lipp & Sullivan. The death occurred in the Rideout Hospital, where Drake had submitted Friday night to another operation of gallstones. He began sinking later and died peacefully during the forenoon. With him were is wife, Mary Campbell Drake, and his daughter Zanita, wife of Jaspar S. Connell, construction engineer. The Connells had planned to come from their Pasadena home this week-end to visit Mrs. Connell’s parents. Notified by wire of the intended operation, they speeded their preparations and started two days early, arriving Friday and visiting with Drake before he went to the operating table. Mr. and Mrs. Drake had since 1923 been conducting the Park grocery store at Fourteenth and H Streets, but most of their lives they had lived at Strawberry Valley, where James H. Drake, father of the deceased, established a store in the ‘50s, buying and shipping gold, grub-staking the miners and handling their business for them. Harvey Drake in later years succeeded to that business. In 1896 he was among the thousands who flocked to Alaska and Yukon Territory, where gold discoveries attracted the world. From 1917 to 1919 Drake was in British Columbia working on a paper mills construction job on which his son-in-law, Connell, was the construction engineer. After that he tried ranching at Orangevale, only to return to Yuba and spend another year at Strawberry. Drake had his early education at Strawberry Valley and in Oakland, later entering McClure military school where he became lieutenant of cadets. He was justice of the peace and school trustee at Strawberry for years. In addition to his wife and daughter, Drake is survived only by a granddaughter, Barbara Connell.  (B.S.)

Marysville Appeal - Tue 12/12/1911, p1,5 - Was It Murder?  Query At Inquest - Man Found Crushed Beneath Wheels of W. P. Train May Have Been Killed and Put on Track - The inquest held in Yuba City yesterday by Coroner P. W. Rowe over the remains of Henry Dwenger brought out the fact that there are some suspicious facts connected with his death, and as a result the inquest was continued until next Monday. - It was learned yesterday at the inquest that Dwenger had been pad [sic] on the day previous to his death several different amounts of money by the Natomas company.  It is known that Dwenger had several time checks on the Natomas and that several of them were for over $30.  It is also known that he was with two other men on the evening of the accident and that when his body was picked up none of the coin was to be found or any traces of it.  The two men who were with him are being looked for so that they can offer an explanation.  They were located, it was thought, in Sacramento last evening and the detectives in that city have been notified to look out for the men.  On the night of the death of Dwenger the two men now sought were noticed by the train men after the train had stopped and they were busy taking the body from the wheels of the cars. - The two men on being hailed by the crew came up and helped, and one of them wanted 50 cents of the money that had dropped from the pockets of the dead man to use to pay his way to Sacramento, but the conductor refused to let him have it.  They were asked to remain with the body while the coroner was coming, but refused, but as they went away one of them waived two pay checks in his hand and said Dwenger should have had two of those. - The engineer of the train which ran over Dwenger was placed on the stand and testified to the fact that he saw an object ahead of him about two hundred yards, but did not know it was a man until he was within about fifty yards of it, when it was too late to slow down and then engine and eight coaches passed over the body. - The engineer said that all of his attempts to arouse the man proved futile.  He blew the whistle loudly, but the body of Dwenger never moved in the slightest.  It was lying stretched out along the side of the track.  The blankets were on the track a few feet away and the ropes which bound them were cut into many pieces. - A thorough investigation before the inquest is closed may lead to some sensational developments.
