lilf'if KiU
of New Fall GooJs in
! While Switching in Yards at
Engineer Ray Carlon was iustautly
killed. and his fireman, Kobt Forbes,
slightly injured about the head and
right leg, as the result of a side col
lision between the switch enigue and
euiguo No, tX9, in charge of Oliver
Hampson, iu the yards here Sunday
morning, about 4 o'clock. Carlon was
operating his switch engine' ou the
main Hue and was backing a caboose
towards the depot to place it iu an
other part of the yards. Just as he got
to the switch opposito Mrs Kctehoir
hospital, tho tender of his engine was
struck by tho tender of engiuo No.
2208, which was on the next adjoining
side track and had backed up to the
switch to bo thrown on to the main
Tho next instant the tender of Hamp
son 's engine struck tho cab of the
switch engine ou tho side ou which
Carlon was sitting, turned it half
way arouud und converted the big
gest part of into kindling wood.
Ray's head wns smashed open, his
right leg, tho lower half of hich
was cork, was broken above tho kueo
and tho upper portion of his body
was badly crushed. Death was iu
stautnneons. Ho had seeu the ap
prouchug collision, but not iu time to
save himself for ho had instantly set
tho air. In tho collision, however,
the nir pipe was broken thus releas
ing the air and tho switch engine,
ufter shoving tho teuder of tho other
engine off tho opposito track and out
of its way, started away again but
Fireman Forbes recovered himself iu
tiuio to stop it before it had gone over
a hundred yards. Neither Hampsnu
unr Switchmen A. C. Cnrty and Joe
Keutro, who were riding ou the
ealiooso attached to the switch engine,
were hurt.
To what tho collision is due is hard
to determine. Alex Anbin, who was
going to throw tho sw itch to allow
llumpsou's engine to get ou tho main
line, says he gave Carlon a stop
signal with his torch, but whether
Kay noticed It will, of course, never
bo learned. Certain it is, however,
that had Curlou'j engiuo been brought
to a stop by tho signal, the collision
would havo beeu averted.
Kay Carlon was tho son of Mr. and
Mrs. Jos. Carlon, of this city, nud
wns bom iu Roseburg 29 years ago.
It wns in Roseburg that he grew to
manhood and began his life of useful
ness. Aftro being engaged in various
employments ho took np railroading
ill tho service of the S. P. Co. 11s a
brakemaii. While following this ho
had the misfortune to lose tho lower
portion of his right leg iu 1111 acci
dent. I'jion recovering, ho again went
into the railroad srevice, but this time
as a fireman aud in due time was pro
moted to au engineer. A position on
a regular ruu not yet ojien for hi in,
he was assigned to the sw itch engine
in tho yards here. Mr. Carlon was
married a few years ago to an esti
mable yoting lady of Grants Pass.
On tho day her husband was killed
sho was on her way home to Kosehurg
from a visit with relatives at Grunts
Pass, and knew nothing of his death
until she arrived at Glcmlnle, where
loiiieouo ou tho southbound over
land made it known to her. Besides
his wife, Mr. Carlon is survived by
his parents and tho following brothers
and sisters: Kichard, Thomas, Maggie
ami Bertha, of Portland; Ernest, of
