Freight No. 116 Crushes Tom
Belt to Death.
Supposing That the Coupling Had
Been Released , Tom Belt Was Un
prepared When the Pin Caught and
Jerked the Car on Which he Stood.
( From Momlny'n Dally.J
Train No. 110 on the Northwestern
r md , ilue into Norfolk last night fro.i
Long Pine , jerked its faithful con
ductor , Thomas Belt , under the wheels
. at Stuart yesterday afternoon and
ground him to death. His right leg
TT S run over , the loft leg was broken
a d other internal Injuries were sus
tained which proved fatal at G o'clock
Triton , after a hard light for his life ,
Conductor Belt was relieved from his
trrible agony by the coming of a
lavrcifnl death.
Coupling Failed to Release.
Conductor Belt was standing upon
th ' top of a freight car when the ac
cident happened. The train was
switching In the yards at Stuart and
the car upon which he stood had Just
butn uncoupled from the train ahead.
The signal had been given for the
engine to move away and Mr. Bolt
supposed that his car , of course ,
ffuuld remain stationary. Instead of
this , however , the coupling pin In
sumo way slipped back into connec
tion and the fatal car was locked
tight to the train. The engine started
forward , the cars lurched after it and
tlic conductor , with no preparation
whatever for a jolt , was caught un
awares and thrown off the end of the
car. He fell to the track below , be
tween two cars , and the wheels passed
oTcr his limb.
( Surgical care was immediately
" "
"A given and it was thought at first that
the injured man might live. Ho com
plained , however , of a pain in his
chest and before the Norfolk special
train , carrying the company surgeon ,
Dr. P. II. Suiter , could arrive , Con-
ihicor Tom Bolt was dead.
Special Train.
Word of the disaster was sent to
Norfolk at once and a special train
was made up to rush toward the scene
of accident. Tills carried Superinten
dent C. H. Reynolds , Dr. P. H. Sailer ,
Mrs. Belt , the widow of Conductor
Belt ; Mrs. W. C. Roland , a friend ;
and Mrs. Al. Wilkinson , a niece. The
train was sent to Stuart as fast as
steam could carry it , but the lifeless
body of the man was all that remained
to tell the story of suffering.
The remains wore brought to Nor
folk on the early morning passenger
train today and were taken to the
home at 1001 South Second street.
They will he taken to the old homo
nt Marshalltown , Iowa , for interment ,
leaving this city Tuesday morning at
0:30 : o'clock.
Tom Belt Was Well Liked.
Tom Bolt , as he was known to all
the railroad boys , was fifty-three years
old and had learned , in twelve years
of service , every foot within the right-
of-way fence between this city and
the end of the line. Ho was faithful
to his train and underneath its wheels
he died. Ho was universally popular
among the railroad men and they
grieve over his cruel ending. He
was a lover of his home , and the llttio
woman who is today watching for the
last time over his remains , is pros
trate with grief at her husband's ter
rible fate. There are no children left
to comfort the heart-broken woman.
Mr. Belt was a member of the Broth
erhood of Railway Trainmen , the
Knights of Pythias , the Maccabees
and the Royal Highlanders. All of
these orders have done everything
possible today to bring comfort to the
stricken home as nearly as the dis
tressing circumstances would permit
and their loyalty to the honored mem
ory of Thomas Belt will long endure
after his remains are laid to rest in
Marshalltown on Tuesday.
Two Victims Within a Week.
A coincident in the distressing dis
aster which renders it no less sad , is
the fact that this same train , No. 110 ,
has now claimed two victims under
neath its deadly wheels within less
than a week. Just six days before
the life of Thomas Belt was taken ,
No. UC , coming into Norfolk after
dark , ran over the form of M. L , Mar
shall as it lay between the rails , and
cut him literally to pieces. Marshall
was dead before the train came along ,
but it was No. loG's wheels that ground
him so severely.
Brief Funeral Service at the Home ,
After Which the Remains Were
Taken Away.
( From Tuesday's Dnllv. ]
The remains of Thomas J. Bolt , the
conductor who was killed under his
train Sunday afternoon , were taken
to Marshalltown , la. , this morning for
burial. Members of his lodge , the
Royal Highlanders , mot at the Bolt
homo , 1102 South Second street , at
5:30 : o'clock and accompanied the re
mains to the station at South Nor
folk. Besides Mrs. Belt , Mrs. Asklns ,
Mrs. W. C. Holand , Mrs. Al Wilkin
son , F. Llnerodo and C. B. Hartford ,
as members of the Hoynl Highlanders
and Knights of Pythias , accompanied
the remains to Marshalltown.
A brief funeral norvlcu was held
at the homo this morning.
Last Night's Panscngcr Was Lamed
Because it Stopped so Suddenly
to Save Her Life.
[ From Monday's Unity.1
In making an exceedingly quickstep
stop in order to save the life of a
woman who stood on the track , the
engine which drew train No. ! ? , the
passenger from Chicago , into Norfolk
last night , so crippled Itself that the
train was almost nn hour delayed.
A woman who had gotten to the center -
tor of a trestle bridge near West
Point could got neither way in tlmo
to save her life , was the cause of It.
As the train came upon the bridge ,
the engineer noticed the perilous po
sition and realized that a few more
turns of the drivers would crush the
feminine form to death. The lover
was speedily reversed , the brakes ap
plied and the whole heavy train
brought to nn immediate standstill.
The engine was lame after that and
lost all the way to Norfolk , but the
life of the woman was saved.

Ponder , Nob. , Sept. 28. Special to
The News : Word has been received
here from Washington of the accept
ance of the proffered resignation of
Charles P. Mathewson as superinten
dent of the Indian schools of the
Omaha and Winnobago reservations

contemplated , the division of the
Omaha and Winnebago reservations ,

Eventually there will be a bonded
charge of each of these great Indian
reservations instead of ono general

following Jones , who Is gradually
taking Indian affairs out of the con
trol of agents and placing them into
the hands of bonded superintendents.

tendent of the Sisseton Indian schools
has been selected to succeed Mr.
Mathowson at the Winnobago school ,
and several men , well known in the
Indian service are being considered
to take charge of the Omaha schools.
Col. S. W. Hayes , Young in I Vi.v ous

In honor of his eighty-fourth birth
day , and rejoicing with him over his
extreme activity and vigorous youth ,
the Masons of Norfolk assembled at
the homo of Col. S. W. Hayes , West
Norfolk avenue Friday evening , and
tendered him a surprise party which
will ho memorable. A largo number
of the local lodge wore present for the
event and the evening was vary thor
oughly enjoyed.
As a token of their esteem and well
wishing , the lodgomen presented Col.
Hayes with a handsome reeking
chair. The spokesman led Mr. Hayes
to the chair and simply said , "What
do you think of it ? It's yours. Sit

The Fiend Started Flames in
Three Separate Places.
The Whole Section Is n Complete
Loss , With Excepton of About Half
of Frost's Merchandise Store and
Portion of Fair's ,
Plalnvlow , Noli. , Sept. 28. Special
to The News : Plalnvlow experienced
the most disastrous lireIn her his
tory early this morning , starting at
2 o'clock. Seven business houses
all but three In an entire block wore
consumed. The lire started simul
taneously in three places , and was
unquestionably of incendiary origin ,
as the lire ( lend had well prepared to
burn the town , liberal quantities of
kerosene being used to innko food
for the flames.
It Is the third disastrous llro the
town bus experienced within a year ,
and ono of the victims of the bhivio" ,
Mr. Fair , has twice before boon
burned out.
The lire was noticed almost sim
ultaneously in the Frost , Fair and
Scott buildings , and the tire lighters
having no water at hand in sulllclont
quantities the destruction of a large
portion of the business part of town
was a foregone conclusion.
The buildings destroyed :
O. J. Frost general merchandise.
About half Hie goods wore saved by
the energetic efforts of the cltlxons.
D. H. Fair , grocery. Some of the
goods wore also saved from this
building ,
L. Button , land olllce.
Dr. F. II. Nye. olllce.
The Scott machinery house.
Building occupied by the millinery
The buildings and their contents
wore an entire loss with the excep
tion of the two mentioned above.
The loss this morning had not boon
estimated , but will lie up in the thou
sands of dollars.
While no arrests have been made ,
there is a well defined suspicion
pointing to the ono who did the das
tardly work , which was planned with
careful Ilondlshnoss. The blaze was
noticed simultaneously in the Frost ,
Fair and Scott buildings , and those
earl > on the scene noted that liberal
quantities of kerosene had boon used i
to give quick fuel to the ilames , the !
three mentioned buildings In which
the lire started being well soaked with
the oil.
No arrests have been made yet ,
but that there will be arrests goes un
questioned , and if the fiend responsi
ble for tile disaster can bo proven
guilty it will go hard witli him.
Plalnview has suffered more from
the lire fiend , beyond a doubt , than
any town in north Nebraska. Two
disastrous fires occurred about this
time last year , and at that time the !
town had boon but fairly rebuilt from
a previous conflagration.
The lire is still smouldering at this
report. Dr. Nye had two tons of
hard coal on hand that will bo fuel
to keep the blaze going for some

the guilty party will receive no sym

Clever , Smooth and Wordy , he Was
no Match for the Versatile Pro
A long haired , wise looking "doc
tor" who struck Norfolk the other
day , wont into the Trocadoro and be
gan to look around. Ho mixed with
tin * men who were In the room and
engaged them , after the matter of his
craft. In an interesting conversation.
Corn were his topic. The doctor
could euro any sort of corns that ever
grow. Slowly , and by systematic pro-
eos'i , he worked the subject around
to his point. He displayed a largo
variety of corns of different shapes
anil kinds , explained how they all hap
pened and why. Finally ho produced
a microscope and allowed the lookers
to peek through a magnifying Ions
at OIK ; of ( hi1 little growths. His
speech , as smooth as a ( lowing brook ,
was bathed In any amount of the pur
est Latin , and punctuated with quo-
tn'loim ' from Shakespeare and Cicero
combined , which would have stag
gered the eminent ancients thorn-
Grasping the microscope In a trag
ic way , the doctor held it above his
hand. "That. " ho exclaimed , "that is
my hand. " Then bo paused for ar
tistic effect.
"You think , perchance , that you ob
serve that hand by moans of the op-
vidi , vici. And now I can convince
you , also. You perceive , my fellowmen -
men , by the brain , and the eye Is
merely an auxiliary to it. "
Then he stopped. He turned to
the proprietor and with a glare that
was dramatic to a degree , declared ,
"Light ! What , sir , is light ? "
Without a smile or a sign of mirth
playing upon his facial features ,
Harry Lodor' replied , very calmly ,
"Business , sir. Business is d n
light. "
And the doctor bought the drinks.

It was no man who got the better
of Chief Martin Kane. It was a vic

palms to the limit , and left them
blooding and gashed. It was a vicious
