The victim of the rviiaway accident
reported in last week’s News, Wm.
Dilley, never ri ¿lined consciousness
and early next morning, Friday, died
of his injuries. This was a singular
accident as there is no theory advanced
explaining how he was dragged, but
the fact that his team was tied to the
fence has been cleared up. It is un
derstood that a party from up Gales
Creek way came along the road at an
early hour that morning to catch the
7:00 train for Portland, and that they
found Dilley’s team and tied it to the
fence. They also discovered Dilley
and noticed that he was alive but sup-
j posed that he was under the influence
' of liquor, consequently, in their hurry
, to catch the train, they left him where
i they found him, little thinking that he
was injured. Upon arriving at Forest
Grove they did not see anyone on the
street to notify hence their departure
without his condition being known.
The funeral was held Saturday at
one o’clock from his father’s home in
this city and the interment was in
Buxton cemetery. Deceased was 26
years old and he leaves, besides his
parents, several brothers and a sister,
and a wife.
