when the trucks of the tank attached to
the engine Jumped, the " (rack and
ploughed through the timbers of the
bridge and ran out to .the edge of the
timbers, where the wheel struck some
thing solid and ran hack to the side of
the rails and croeaed the remainder of
the bridge close to the alls, cutting off
the tlea. The train waa stopped after it
had crossed the bridge and . after an
hour's delay the tank wheela were re
placed on the rails and the train came
on to Union. This Is the bridge where

hrough and killed Engineer "Peggy"
Toung and hla fireman. The ravine is
some twenty feet deep which this

the tale. All were badly frightened when
they saw what a close call they had.

The arraignment of Van Goodell, who shot
and killed Miss Edna Kennett Friday even
ing, August 4, and then attempted aulcide
by shootlnar himself in the head, waa post
poned until Friday morning at the request
of his attorney, W. W. Slabaugh, who haa
not finished his preparations for the de
fense. Goodell has recovered from his self
inflicted wound on his right temple, but
has lost considerable weight since hla con
finement on the evening of the shooting.
Friends, relatives and neighbors have vis
ited him In numbers since his incarcera
tion and all spoke of the excellent reputa
tion borne by the murderer of the Loyal
hotel check girl previous to the shooting.
Friends of Goodell's claim that the latter
must have been erased at the time of the
8hontlncr, and Insanity will probably be the
plea of the defense.

CHARLES MOOSE INNOCENT
Former Justice of Pence Vlnlentes
Himself, Proving; Hu la Not
Charles Moose, former Justice of tho
peace in Omaha, was vindicated when he
was taken before County Judge Leslie
Thursday on a burglary charge. He proved
he was not Dick Taylor and was dis
charged. Meanwhile the real Dick Taylor
ngainst whom the charge was filed is at
Moose owes his trouble to his effort to
be genial with a Lincoln sleuth. He was In
Lincoln shortly after the burglary and a
detective in plain clothes, after eyeing him
carefully, approached and held out Ills
"Hello Dick Taylor," said the detective.
Mooso was In a comfortable mood that
morning and a little matter like a name
could not stand between him and anyone
who wanted to be friendly, so he answered,
"Hello" and began talking to the detective.
The latter knew Dick Taylor was wanted
here so he locked Moose up and sent down
here for an officer. Moose was brought
back under the Impression he was using
the name, Taylor. When the police officers
saw him they realized a mistake had been
made and turned Moose loose.
