Miss Nellie Oeddes of Sarnla waa among

Not finding her sister here she became
convinced that she had been saved and
had. gdhe on to Sarnla and this tnoratng

mere meet ner sister Nellie.
The train bearing the dead reached here
this afternoon. All the undertakers In the
city were called Into service. There were
twenty-five bodies In all, and soma of them
were crushed beyond resemblance to human
belnga. , ' '
The bodies were placed In a row In the

PORT. HURON, Dec. 27. There are con
flicting stories as to 'the direct' responsi
bility for the Grand Trunk wreck at Wan
stead, .but it la plain that It .was through a
miscarriage of orders. Both conductors
had instructions which. It Is alleged, clear
them of -blame, but the 'attempt to throw
the responsibility 'on Andrew Carson, the
operator at Watford, Is 'not In accordance
with the facts as 'hear as can he' learned
It la asserted In the Brat place that the
train dispatcher at London sent an order
to Watford for No. 6 to pass the freight
at Wanstead,' the- scene ot the wreck, be
fore the express reached Watford. How
ever, the operator at Wyoming, the first
station to the weat of Wanstead, reported
that the freight was still there. The dis
patcher thereupon, according to Watford
advices, cancelled the meeting order at
Wanstead and when the express reached
Watford, according to running rules In
force, It had a clear right of way to the
next scheduled stop, Wyoming.
Unfortunately after NO. 6 had left Wat
ford it was discovered that the freight had,
after all, started for Wanstead. All poe-
lb'e efforts were made to Intercept No. 5,
out e operator at Kings court junction,
an Intervening station, who should have
been on duty, could not be reached and
Wanstead was not a night office
There was no earthly means of stopping
the Impending catastrophe. The Wanstead
operator, who lives about sixty yards from
the station, saw the Impact of the two
trains and immediately rushed to the sta
tion to call tor aid. He 'had 'no sooner
opened the key than the message' was
flashed to him to stop No. S. - But It was

eration, taken action upon the charges filed
against W. G. Saunders, bonded superin
tendent at Safttee agency la Nebraska, by
the Civil Service commission, and today
sent a- letter notifying Mr. Saunders his
services would terminate upon approval
of the apoplntmcnt of hla successor by the
secretary of the Interior. It U understood
that Wllbert A. Negley, how in the classi
fied service, will be appointed to succeed
Mr. -Saunders. Mr. Negley . was recom
mended for appointment when H. 0. Balrd,
former agent at Bantee agency, was re
lleved from duty by reason ot the Indian
appropriation bill falling to appropriate
any money for pay of an agent. Senator
Millard, however, protested against the ap
pointment of an outside man and won over
the Indian office to his way of thinking.
Mr. Saunders was appointed agent for
few boura and then covered Into the civil
service as bonded superintendent. Mr.
Balrd resented the manner In which he was
relieved from duty and filed cbargea with
the Civil Service commission, which were
Investigated. As a result of that Investi
gation the Civil Service' commission de
manded the removal of Mr. Saunders. Sen
ator Millard, who haa been a friend of Mr,
Saunders, asked that the matter be held
up. until he could go over the details per
sonally with the commissioner ot Indian
affairs and the secretary of the Interior.

deep a boyish affection for Wllhelmlna
Sadler, aged IS, that he twice shot himself
In the breast yesterday that he might not
be an obstacle to her marriage with hla
older and more proaperoua rival, Walter
W, Dary of St. Louie, who haa been Inter
eated In the girl since she was an Infant
and Who Is aald to have assisted financially
In having her well and thoroughly edu
cated at Mount 8t. Mary'a convent, Caa
tellar and South Fifteenth streets.
The shooting occurred at 1:46 yesterday
afternoon In room 8 at the A; cade bqtel.

the apartment of Daly'a friends, Richard
Schuman and wife, and to which Mlaa Sad

men. Dr. Powell, who attended the boy.
reports that one of the bullets of the 82-
caliber revolver he used glanced oft the
aternum, or breaat .bone, to tte left and
did no harm whatever, and that the other
entered at the median lino to the left of
the aternum botween the seventh r.nJ
eighth ribs, paaaed to the left through tho
cheat wall and lodged between the ninth
and tenth ribs, from Which he extracted It
after the lad had been taken to the Cen
tral hospital at 2212 Beward street. Dr.
Powell further believes the boy can be
about again In a week, providing no com
plications develop. In that caae the wound
might be very serious.
Girl and Her Lovers.
The girl la the daughter of Mra. M. A
Sadler, proprietor ot the employment
agency and rooming houae at 1194 North
Fifteenth atreet, but has not been living
with her mother since December 23, at
which time she became at age, and because
of what she describes as an estrangement
between tbem went to room at 1709 Cali
fornia street. Her youthful lover Is the
son of D. S. Howard, proprietor of the
Cumberland rooming house, directly oppo
site Mrs. Sadler's, on Fifteenth street. He
was in her employ until she became
alarmed at the attachment forming be
tween him and her daughter. Later he
waa with the A. D. T. company as a mes
senger boy. and tor the laat two weeks
haa been disengaged. '
Daly is a member of a St. Louis adver
Using firm and came to Omaha the day be
fore Christmas to be the guest of his
father, C. C. Daly, who Is manager of the
Kvans-snyaer-Bueii company, and rooma
at the establishment ot Mrs. Sadler, whom
he knew seven years ago, when both fam
ilies lived In Fort Worth, Tex.
Story of the Girl.
In an interview given at the hospital by
the girl late last night she stated that It
was during their Fort Worth residence that
Daly took a fancy to her. She stated fur
ther that she did not see him again until
he called at her California street rooming
place Christmas day, remaining but a few
momenta. Later he Invited her to call at
the room of the Bchumana at the Arcade,
and upon her doing ao, he proposed Im
mediate marriage,' she says, which she de
dined, because too young, and for the fur
ther reason that she had a very strong
liking for Dorre Howard. Frtday she met
Daly on the street, by accident, and he
urged her to call again at the hotel, which
she promised she would do "at o'clock
Saturday morning, After this meeting she.
encountered the boy, told him what had
transpire! and waa persuaded by him not
to go. At 1:S0 yesterday afternoon, sBe re
lates, Daly and hta friend Schuman came
to her California atreet room JuBt as she
was packing her trunk to go to the home
Of the Howards to live. They Insisted,
she says, upon her coming to the hotel, and
finally, "to get rid of them," she promised
to call at 1:80 it they would go. They did
ao, and she went, aa abe had promlaea,
though young Howard waa protesting and
accompanied her to the hotel, pleading to
be allowed to go to the room with her.
She found the room vacant and had
started down the stairs, when she met
Daly and . Schuman coming up with a
Christmas package tn the latter's hands.
Mrs. Schuman joined them at about the
Same time, but both the Bchumana left
shortly and Daly, ahe atatea, renewed hla
request for her hand.
Loved and Lost. -
At this juncture Dorre knocked and waj
admitted by Daly, who led him out agalu
Into the reception room and there told htm
ot hla (Daly's) long Interest In their
common friend. The boy was angry and
tempestuous, the girl says, and finally she
persuaded them both to go into the greater
privacy of the Schuman apartment, where
she perched upon the left arm ot the chair
Dorre was occupying and sought to soothe
him. At this tears cams to his eyes, which
so mortified him that he apologized to
Daly for seeming babyish In hla presence.
It la the girl's story that Daly answered
that he rather admired him for It and
walked to the north window with his back
toward the two. ,
A minuter later Dorre la eald to have re
marked as tragically aa a boy his age could,
that he "had loved and lost." and 'waa
going." He grabb-d bla hat from the bed,
the girl states, ana -rose abruptly, turn
ing hla back toward her rid thrusting both
hands into his overcoat pocrts, with his
hat under hla left arm.
The next abe observed waa the la(h of
hta pistol aa ha fired the flrat ahov with
the weapon pointed toward htm. She
grabbed hla ahoulder, but be fired a aecond
time, Instantly, and fell over against her.
Bhe let him atnk gently to the floor,
acreamed, and ran from the room. Turn
ing, ahe saw him reaching for his pistol,
which had fallen from hla hand and Still
contained, aa ahe afterward learned1' three
shells. Rushing back, ahe grabbed It up
and laid It upon the dreaaer. Behind her
came Mra. Kelley, the houaekeeper, and
Very soon a aultlolent number ot othera to
fill the room. The boy was helped after a
time to walk .to the elevator and out to
a back, which bore him to the hoapltal,
the girl seated at hta side with hla head
upon her shoulder, and Daly and a hotel
employe on the seat opposite. At the
hospital the girl waa forced to relinquish
her hold and sent Into another room, while
Dr. Powell and Mlaa Compton, the bead
nurse dreaaed the boy's wounds and placed
him under the Influence of an anaeethetio
long enough to remove the bullet. e
Girl ataya by Him.
The girl Is still at the hospital, assisting
In auch waya aa ahe can. Schuman ia
aald to have come out later and to have
remarked that a boy who would do a trick
like that ought to go to jail, which ao In
cenaed Howard'a father, who had arrived
at about the aame time, that a personal
combat between the two was averted with
difficulty. Howard'a father haa a belief
that aome sort ot conspiracy exiata agalnat
hla eon, but doean't appear to know exactly
why he tblnka ao. He atatea that Dorre
haa carried a platol for soma time be
cause ot a fear of the Daly family. He
further avers that herafter Wllhelmlna
aan make her home at hla house it she
chooses and that be will rotect her at
the, same instituting an Investigation Into
the shooting ef yesterday te make certain
that all la aa It appears.
Dr. Powell bellevea the boy shot . him

eelf said so at the time, and the girl states
that although she first blamed Daly for tho
episode, he waa not even looking wh"n the
ahota were fired and did not go near How.
ard until after othera had reached the
room. 8he states also that Dorre told her
he holds none responsible but himself.
What the Mother Tells.
Mrs. M. A. Sadler, mother of the girl,
conducta the Hotel Monadnock, and a mea
aenger and employment bureau at 119
121 North Fifteenth street. When seen by
a reporter for The Bee laat night ahe made
"This boy, Dorre Howard, waa a mes
senger boy for me about a year. During
that period he and my daughter met. I
vni-eu a growing intimacy between thrro
and took steps early, I thought, to keep
them apart. I placed Wllhelmlna In tho
Mount St. Mary'a convent, here In Omaha.
She had been In a convent seven years In
San Antonio, Tex., where we lived before
coming to Omaha, three years ago.
"I thought I had solved the problem
when I sent the girl back to the cenvent,
but I found, to my utter dismay, that I
had utterly failed. The Tooy, egred on
by the unwholesome advice of Md'.'r peo
ple, proteated hla love and relentlessly pur.
sued his determination of meeting her. Ily
some mesns or other he found this possible,
even after she was In the convent. The
girl, I learned, had been taught by some
of this boy s treacherous friends, that she
was a martyr because she had a mother
who refused her the privilege of running
the streets at random and allowing her to
keep company like other girls. This
poisonous advice found lodgement In the
glrl'a mind. I soon found all my pleadings
In vain. Presently the girl was dismissed
from the convent. The slaters did all they
could, but like myself, were opposed by
too great and bad Influences. The g rl
left the convent, came home, but waa
hard to manage. Thla aurreptltious court
ship continued, despite all my efforts to
prevent It. Finally I consulted legal advice
and iaeued written notices to every mem
ber of the Howard family to keep off my
Stenosirapher Assists Capld..
"I had a stenographer In my employ to
whom I committed my secrets, thinking I
could trust her. I invited her to make
her home with me and help me break up
thla companionship. To my horror I
learned that thla girl, who was my daugh
ter's senior, had betrayed my confidence
and was in collusion with the other side.
I dismissed her and about then my daugh
ter became of age. Feeling the dignity
which came with her 18th birthday, ahe
gathered up her belonglnge and left my
home. Thla waa the 28d of the month.
She has not been back since. Bhe made
her home with thia former stenographer
of mine, where the Howard boy called until
the landlord of the place set hla foot down.
Then my daughter was Induced to move
her things to the boy's father's place,
which Is Juat opposite my place. I de
layed the movement somewhat, but my ef
forts were finally baffled and the girl waa
dragged Into that place. I thought this
Waa the limit.
"I determined when t heard that ahe was
being taken In there that I'd get me a gun
and I'd atand at the foot of those stalra
and I'd annihilate the whole Howard fam
ily before I'd see a daughter. Of mine
dragged up those stairs.
"Well, the other day an old friend of our
family and a distant relative, a man with
whom I was once associated In business In
Texas, came to see us from St. Louis. Ct
was Walter W.' Daly of the firm of Daly
Broa., general advertisers there." I" con
ceived the Idea of getting Mr. Daly to help
me out of thla dilemma. Mr. Daly had not
seen my daughter for five years, when she
was a little girl, but he had alwaya ad
mired her and I believe he still has great
admiration tor her. "
Daly Tries to Heln Mother.
"I laid the matter before Mr. Daly. He
agreed to do what he could. His efforts to
meot the girl at Howard'a failed. Finally
he sot a friend ot his at ths Arcade hotel
to let him have the use of bis room. He
got the girl's consent to meet htm there.
The girl waa on her way to the Areade
yeaterday afternoon when ahe met thia It-year-old
lover ot here, and he walked to
the Arcade with her. Wllhelmlna. kept her
promise to meet Mr. Daly and the two were
In the room talking, when 'a knock came at
the door. Mr. Daly opened the door and
admitted thla boy, Howard. Daly treated
the boy courteously and when the lad tried
to atart a controversy about Daly'a being
there with the girl, Daly very tactfully
switched the conversation. Boon the boy
tried to resume his attack on Mr. Daly,
and to make a long story ahort Howard
grabbed his pistol and -turning It toward
him, fired. Before he fired the second shot
the girl caught htm, but not in time to
stop the trigger. The boy fell to the floor,
the girl gave way to loud crying and Mr.
Daly ran for the clerk. The boy made a
statement In which be aald, repeatedly, that
he shot himself. It waa a very unfortu
nate thing for Mr. Daly, who waa drawn
Into the matter entirely at my request, but
of course no one would attempt to connect
him, wrongfully, with the affair.
Mother's Heart Involved.
"I am of course deeply grieved at the
outcome ot this thing, but I havedone
everything that an earneat mother could
do to dissuade my daughter from receiving
the attentlona of thla boy. I have had not
only the stubborn will of a very obstinate
young girl to combat, but the unrlghteoua
Influence of meddlesome and treacheroua
outalders. I never allowed my daughter,
who Is my only child, to roam the streets,
and these people have Impressed her with
the Idea that I was abualng her In thla
aort ot treatment. My daughter is a beau
tiful girl, cultured and refined. ' I have
tried to keep her eloae to childish waya and
even have kept her In ahort dresses. I
am aatlafled of her character, and though
I would give everything I possess In this
world to have averted this.- I am -blessed
with the consolation that the girl Is pure
and feel confident ahe will yet come around
all right. I have not seen my daughter
since the shooting."
