FREIGHT TRAIN CRASHES INTO MOTOR CAR
Victim Was Steading a Rear Plat
form of Motor and Jsnpei, Rail
ing oa the Track la Front
of the Train.
Rpy L. Felton, cashier of the Under
wood State State bank of Underwood, la ,
seeing that a collision was Inevitable,
Jumped from the rear platform of one
of the large motors and fell beneath '.he
wheel of a Great Western freight train
as the latter crashed Into the streeT oar
at the South Main treet crossing yester
day afternoon. He died later from his In
juries. Fred L. Pace, an employe at the Lind
say hide house on Ninth avenue and Main
street, was hurt about the limb, but was
able to go to hi home at 776 Madison ave
nue. - The motor, which wa southbound, wb
In charge of Conductor Bamuel E. Alger
and Motorman J. B. McCabe. Conductor
Alger is said to have gone ahead of the
car at the railroad crossing. The acci
dent occurred at 4:80 o'clock.
The motor wa brought to a stop at
the Great Western crossing on Main
street to allow a westbound passenger
train to clear the crossing. As soon ns
the train had cleared the motor tracks
and pulled up at the depot. Conductor
Alger Is aald to have signaled Motorman
McCabe to come ahead. As the car wa
about half way across the street Inter
section a freight train backing east
struck the rear platform of the motor,
tearing off the step and throwing the
hind trucks of the car off the tracks.
Mr. Felton, who was standing on the rear
platform, realizing his danger, Jumped
and fell partly under the wheels of the
freight train. Hi right leg was. crushed
and almost severed near the hip and ho
received a bad cut In the head.
A nurse, who left the scene of the ac
cident before her Identity could be
learned, wa on the motor and she, with
the assistance of former Councilman E.
C. Brown and John Schott, proprietor of
a nearby drug store, picked up Mr. Felton
and applied a compress bandage to stop
the flow of blood from the mangled limb.
Mr. "Felton was quickly as possible re
moved to the Jennie Edmundson hospital
In the police ambulance.
Fred . Pace wa standing on the plat
form and the shock of the collision threw
him against the Iron railing, Injuring
both legs. His Injuries, however, were
not ufflclently serious to prevent him
taking a car home.
There were a number of passenger In
the car. Including everal women. A far
as could be learned none was hurt, al
though most of them were thrown from
their seat and shaken up.
Conductor Alger of the street car when
asked for his version of the accident de
clined to talk, stating he wa under In
struction not to do o.
Several eye witnesses of the accident
said that Conductor Alger signalled the
motorman to go ahead as soon as the
last car of the passenger train had cleared
the street car track and without pro
ceeding further across the railroad tracks
to ascertain If any other 'trains were com
ing. At the hospital It wa found necesnry
to amputate the crushed limb at the hip
Joint and it was then apparent there was
little If any chance for Mr. Felton' sur
viving his injuries. He died shortly after
10 o'clock, his wife, brother -and father-in-law,
who had been summoned from Neola,
being at his bedside.
Mr. Felton was 27 years of age and until
a few week ago resided at Neola where
his parents live. He was a member of the
Pottawattamie county bar and practiced
his profession until six weeks ago when
he removed to Underwood to assume the
position of cashier of the Underwood State
bank. He Is survived by his wife, a
'daughter of Mr. and Mr. Jamea Rlshtnn
of Neola and a niece of Thomas Rlshton
of this city, and one child.

It will be observed that in the case of
five of the state institutions the visiting
committee actually recommended more
than had been asked for by the Board of
Control. In a number of them there hav
been some large reductions recommended,
but In others very little change. The net
reduction of $480,000 represents but a small

can go to this purpose as a whole.
The appropriations committees are now at
work figuring out what can be done to
moke the necessary reduction.
