Burning a Baby in a Locomotive
Special to Thk Astoriax.
Stracuse, N. Y., July 11. A detec
tive from police headquarters waited
at the station o the Delaware, Lacka
wana & Western railroad to-night for
tho evening express from Oswego to
come in. On its arrival, a fireman,
Fred V. Curtis, -was taken out of the
cab and to the city jail, charged with
a most unusual crime. Hfa accuser is
Frank Granish, a fellow fireman, with
whom tho prisoner went over the road
to-day. Curtis has been brakeman on
tho road for nine years, but had just
been pnt on an engine to stoke, under
instructions of Granish.
This morning Curtis came into the
cab with a bundle which he tossed
carelessly on tho coal in tho tender.
He said nothing about tho contents
until the train passed Pleasant Bridge,
a lake sido resort near here.Jwhen ho
picked it up and romarked that it con
tained all that was left of his Fourth
of July, Curtis left the bundle undis
turbed until the train was again in
full speed, then ho picked it up and
unwinding the paper wrapped around
it, opened it in sight ot- Granish.
It held the body of a weo baby.
Curtis said to his astonished com
panion, that it was his own and that
he was going to have a quiet funeral,
and without further ado he opened
tho fire box and deliberately throw
tho body in on top of tho "blazing
coals. He said he had frequently done
tho same thing before.
Granish was apalled at the coolness
of the man, but Curtis only laughed.
When the train reached this city at
noon Granish gave imformation of the
crimo to the police, who made tho
arrest to-night Curtis denies the
story, but as his wife was delivered of
a still born child on Tuesday, the
truth is unquestioned by the police.
The woman has two children living.

having the support of Stephen M.
"White and liis friends in tho further
ance of his ambition. Irish will stump
the state this fall in the interest of the
Democratic state ticket, and while

citizen will have no trouble in reading
the "true inwardness" of hostility,
between Colonel Irish's Alta and
Senator Hearst's Examiner. In every
way tho fight promises to be a pretty
