Man Found with Throat Cut.
When the Burlington freight train
from the west , due here at noon \-ester-
day , pulled into the depot a man was
found in one of the empty freight cars
lying in a pool of blood , with three gap
ing wounds in his throat. He was un
conscious and in his right hand was
tightly gripped a bone-handled razor.
Everything indicated that the man had
attempted suicide , but when revived at
St. Joseph's hospital he told a story that
showed he had been the victim of a
murderous assault by a colored man
who had been his fellow traveler. The
colored man's name , he said , is Walker.
Walker jumped from the train after the
assaulr. The wounded man gives the
name of Thomas Johnson and his home
at McCook , Neb. His injuries , while
serious , are not thought to be necessar
Johnson's story is that he boarded the
freight car at McCook to come to Omaha
to seek work. He had a few dollars and
a watch , which he hid 011 his person. At
a small way station a negro , who told
him his name was Walker , entered the
car. Walker told him he was going to
Omaha , where he lived. The negro , he
said , plied him with all kinds of ques
tions and finally learned from him that
he had a watch and money. Walker
was apparently friendly until the train
approached Omaha , when he demanded
that Johnson hand over to him his valu
ables. He accompanied the demand by
the drawing of a razor. Johnson refused
to accede to the demands and the negro
rushed at him and the two clinched and
fell to the floor of the car , Johnson be
ing under. While lying ou the floor
the negro cut Johnson's throat from a
point back of the right ear to the chin.
Johnson , however , managed to stagger
to his feet , but was again knocked down
by the negro , who slashed his throat
twice. Although weak from loss of
blood , Johnson says he grappled with
the negro and succeeded in wresting the
razor from him and inflicting a wound
on the negro's face. He then fell un
conscious from loss of blood.
He thinks the negro waited until the
yards in this city were reached , and then
jumped from the train. Before leaving
the negro robbed him of all his posses
sions. Wednesday's Omaha Bee.
