man of the Switch Crew,
The sad and unexpected Intelli
gence was received this morning
through a telegram of a son of Ben
Brooks, now In Omaha, of the death
at that point of George Straley, form-
trly of this city. Mr. Straley waa a
tirother-ln-law of George and Ben I
Orooks of this city, having married

titj, being employed by W. D. Jones
ad other liverymen in their barns
"fcere and later embracing switching
4k the Burlington yards here under
W. D. Messersmlth. He commenced
Work here during the '90's. For a
bumber of years past he has been
employed In Omaha working for the
Colon Paclfls railroad.
It was while in discharge of his
Hutles as foreman of a switching crew
tor the Union Pacific that the unfor
tunate man met his death. He was
Wiled laHt night at 8:05 o'clock in
the Union Pacific yards in Omaha at
Varcy street between Fourteenth and
tfTteenth streets. He was caught be
tween the rear wall of the Omaha
Faper box factory and a loaded coal
car which was derailed at that point.

The members of the M. W. A. last
evening bad a great big time at their
all when they proceeded to Install
ttJ3cers for the coming year. They
bad a fine spread including about
everything to be had In the eatable
line and the many members certainly
aet them down to a vertlable feast.
ATter the banquet a smoker followed
which was hugely enjoyed by all. As
Bpeclal feature of a fine evening's
entertainment, the Woodman band
was on hand and gave a number of
fine selections. The band also played
several airs before the meeting as
sembled and, despite the bad weather,
a number of people gathered on the
streot to liHten to their mudlc and
reward them with generous nppluuse.
In the hall there was from seventy

and life crushed out, be gave one
long, agonizing scream which was
heard by the engine men and the
men of the switch crew who brought
the train to a stop but too late to
