MET WITH FATAL ACCIDENT
Brakeman C. D. Smith Dies From
Saturday morning at 4 o'clock while
the freight (rain was switching at
Woodville. one of the brakemen, C.
D. Smith, sustained injuries that
later caused his death. Th uni
coupler was out of order and lie had
to step between the cars to make the
coupling. As he went to step back
his clothiug caught and threw him
down. He fell on the outside of the
rail, but was unable to clear himself
of the track and a car wheel caught
bis right leg, ground the flesh nearly
all off the calf of the leg and also
broke the bone. He was a'so severely
Injured internally by being dragged
by bis clothing for some distance.
Ihe other trainmen came to his as
sistance at once and he was brought
on the train to Grants Pass by Con
doctor Arthur Everton. The Com'
pany's surgeons, Dra Find ley and
Lougbridge dretsed his woond. In
accordance with a standing order of
the Company, Mr. Smith was placed
on the passenger train to be taken to
the hospital In Portland. Dr. Find
ley accompanied him, but the patient
sank so rapidly that it was found im
possible for him to stand the trip to
Portland and he was taken off the
train at Roeborg. where he died that
Mr. Smith was the son of Mr. and
Mrs. W. K. Smith of Ashland, and his
body was taken to that place for
burial. The fuueral services were
he'd Monday and were attended by a
number of railroad men from 'this
oity. Mr. Smith was 22 years old
and was au industrious promising
young man, who was popular with
bis fellow trainmen and he hnd a
host of friends, who sincerely mourn
his death. He was a member of the
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen
and carried an insurance of 13A0 in

writers and Typewriter supplies.
No Reunlou This Year.
After thoroughly cou-ideriug the
matter the o Hi tiers of the Soothtrii
Oregon Soldiers and Sailors Reunion
AHSociaton have decided to not hold a
reunion this fall, but to postpone it
and hold it in conjunction with the
Oregon state encampment of the (i.
A. K. and W. R. C. that is to he
held in Grants Pass next June.
Departmet Coniinaudenr T. E. Hills,
of Ashland, and District Commander
S. M. Kealou of Sms Valley, were
in Grants Pass last Saturday to confer
with the O. A. R. oflicers here rela
tive to postponing of the encampment
that was to have been held here in
September. Thursday a meetiug wax
held in Medford representing all the
Q. A. R. posts in Southern Oregon, at
which Grants Pas was represented by
Capt. Evans, E. A. Wade and Albert
Morrisou. At this meetiug it wm
officially decided to pospone the en
campment as above stated. The rea
son for taking this action was that w
many of the old soldiers of Sontlieu
Oregon had or wouldjvisit the fair and
the trip to Portland would take such
time and money that they felt that
they could not take the additional
time to attend a reouion this fall.
The attendance would thus be so
small that it would preclude the en
campment from being the success that
it otherwise would.
It is expected to have the biggest
eucampmei.t next June iu Ursula Pai-a
that has evei been held in Oregon by
the Grand Army.
By combining the state and local
reuuions this will be possible and a
material saving rf the extienses can
thereby be made.
There will be a service Sunday
morning at 11 o'clock at which the
pastor will preach. Sunday evening
we will worship with the people of
the M E. church. The Sunday School
convenes at 10 a. m. and all interested
io Bible study are cordially welcomed.

Through the courtesy of L. W.
Swain the names of his brother and
nephew had been given to the Cjurier
and sample copies of this paper bad
been sent to them at different timet.
Messrs. Swain said they read the
Courier with great interest And it
was largely through the information
gained from its colnmns that Induced
them to come to Grants Pass and see
for themselves Rogue River Valley
aud investigate Its many opportunities
for good Investments. They stated
that after tbey had read the copies ol
the Courier seut them that they gave
them to frieudi, who read them, eveu
the advertisments, to learn of a
country where a farmer did not have
to live for seven mouths on what he
had earned during the prey ioui five
mouths of the year, as was necessary
by reason of the long Wisconsin
winters. Messrs. Swaiu stated that
so far as they had observed oonditious
here that what they had read in the
Courier was not misrepresented nor
overdrawn in '.uy statemeut. They
also stated, what many other
Eastern people have stated ou coming
to this Coast, they plaoed more
credence ou' what they read In the
uewspapers thau in the immigration
pamphlets aud other publication seut
them, for if the editor of the paper did
uot tell the truth the corresoudeuts
would in writing of local events,
orops, climate and Industries. Im
migration literature was io largely
overdrawn that Eastern people uo
longer plaoed full reliance In it
as a source of gaining information of
a new country. Messrs. Swain were
con Aden t the sample copy distribution
of the Courier in the Eastern states
would have far more influence iu
gaining settlers aud luvestors for
