tried on charges of throw

pool room gamblers, who operated in
Brooklyn, Hoboken and Chicago. Tele

ment Last Evening.
Last night was designated a "guest
night" by1 the Reajlng Club, composed
of prominent Astoria ladles, the event
being especially given to listen te an
address of Hon. George Noland on
Napoleon." The address was Inter
esting and Instructive. A piano solo
by Miss Pauline KtrchoS elicited ap
plause and an encore. A vocal solo by
Edwin Hohson was appreciated and he
responded to an encore. The decora- j
Hons were carnations; About 70 guests

RUN OVER BY TRAIN.
Thomas O. Connsll Killed by Astoria
Train Near Warren.
A man named Thomas O. .Connell
was run over by the noon train on the
A. and C. railroad Sunday about a
mile south of Warren station. He was
walking on the track, but seemed to
pay no attention to the whistle from
the engine. Coroner Cliff of Columbia
county was notified and took charge of
the remains and an inquest was held.
The evidence adduced showed that he
was walking along the track and when
the whistle was blown he deliberately
walked to the opposite side of the track
him, and laid down on the rails. Grasp
ing the opposite rail and was cut in
two. There Is no doubt but it was a
case of deliberate suicide. A letter of
recommendation was found in nib
pocket from Altman, Taylor & Co, La-
Salle street, Chicago. It is thought that
he came to Portland expecting to find
work and was disappointed. The coro
ner's verdict exhonorated the company
from all blame. ;
