A stranger who just before his death
gave his name as Thomas Williams and
Boone, la., his home, died yesterday
morning at th Council Bluffs General hos
pital from Injuries received from being run
over either by a switch engine or a freight
train In the local yards of the Northwestern
Williams, with two companions, during
Wednesday night broke Into a freight oar
In which they discovered a barrel of wine.
It did not take the trio long to knock the
bung out of the cask, when they pro
ceeded to Imbibe liberally of the contents.
They were, however, disturbed In their
carousal by ome yardmen and th three
Jumped from the car and ran. A few
minutes later some of the yardmen, at
tracted by Williams' shrieks, found hlin
lying beside the tracks In the north end
of the yards. He had been run over and
his left leg wss crushed and nearly sev
ered below the knee, while the right thigh
was almost cut to pieces, although the
bone was hot fractured.
Williams, who waa apparently crazy from
the liquor he had Imbibed and the shock
of his Injuries, was removed In the police
ambulance to the General hospital, where
he was attended by City Physician Rice.
Williams' shrieks on the way to the hos
pital could be heard for blocks.
At the hospital Williams, after the left
leg had been amputated and he had come
out of th anaesthetic, acted like a maniac.
He yelled and cursed and made vain at
tempts to "bite the nurse and doctors at
tending him. Failing In this he seized one
of his own wrists, between his teeth and
would have bitten a hole through It but
for the doctors, who pried his hold loose
after quite a struggle.
It was about 2 o'clock when Williams
wss taken to the hospital and shortly after
8 o'clock Dr. Rice noticed that the man
had but a few minutes to live, and as he
appeared rational by this time, asked him
If he had anything to say. ' The fellow
said his name was Thomas Williams snd
that he was on his way home to Boone
from Wyoming, where he had been work
ing on the big ditch. He said his wife,
Mary Jane Williams, lived In Boone; and
also two brothers, coal miners. He dented
having attempted to jump a train out of
the yards, but said nothing as to how he
came by his Injuries.
The police picked up In the railroad yards
a' man giving the name of Charles Deg
man on suspicion of being one of Wll
lisms' two companions. Degman said he
wa a stone maaon from Providence, R. I.
At police headquarters Degman said the
nam of the man who had been run over,
alluding to Williams, was Charles Mor
rlsey. The fact that a big bunch of skele
ton keys was found on Williams leads the
police to believe he was a hard citizen.
Degman, who Is being held for Investiga
tion, declined to make any statement.
Undertaker Cutler, to whose place the re
mains of Williams were taken, received a
telegram last night from on of the man''
brothers at Boone stating he would arrive
In Council Bluffs this morning.
Coroner Treynor last evening had not de
cided whether to hold an inquest, but
said ha was of the opinion that under the
circumstances one would not be necessary.

The Board of County Supervisors at Its
session yesterday morning rejected the ap
plication of J. B. and O. A. Denton for a
license to operate a ferry from Florence,
Neb., to a point on the Iowa side of the
Missouri liver, Th board rejected the
application aolely on the grounds that It
had no authority to grant It, for the rea
son that where the ferry Is proposed to
land on this side of the river Is private
property. There Is no county road running
to the liver edge at which the landing
could be made and until such a road Is
estsbllshed the county supervisors' have
absolutely no authority 'In the matter.
The action of the Commercial club
Wednesday nlghf in voting to request the
supervisors to reject the sppllcstlon of the
Dentnns had no bearing on the course pur
sued by the county board yesterday. The
supervisors expressed themselves to the
Messrs. Denton, who were present at the
morning session, that, they saw no reason
why they should not grant the license
asked for if a county road was established
at the point on the Iowa side of the river.
Messrs. Denton told the board that they
would take the necessary steps to have
a road established, aa they said they felt
assured they would experience no dlfflculty

i From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. June 7 tSpeclnl.) County
clerks who receive moneys paid Into their
hands to await the determination' of a law
suit are i.ot entitled to the interest If de
posited In savings banks at Interest, ac
cording to a decision of the supreme court
today. In the case of David A. Rhea
against George Brewster of Sioux county,
Brewster, the county clerk, was paid 1M30
by Rhea pending the determination of a
suit over the purchase of some land. When
the money was finally paid the Interest
amounted to 1377.M and was withheld by the
clerk. He argued that he wss not forced
to deposit It at Interest and could have de
posited It without Interest, thereby es
caping the payment of the Interest. . The
court today holds that while the clerk is
not compelled to deposit the money at In
terest, If so deposited the interest aa well
as principal must - he paid to the person
finally designated by the courts. The de
cision will make a difference of hundreds
of dollars to the county clerks of the
state, as many have been able to greatly
Increase their Income through such de
posits. Ilamley Controls Fort Dorisce.
