Run Down aud Cut in Pieces by a Wiscoustn Central Xraiii. Yesterday morning when the sec- tion men on the Wisconsin. Central road near Vernon station started, out to work they found the body of a roan, terribly mangled lying in the ditch near the track .about a mile south of Vernou station. The Head entirely severed from the body and lying some feet beyond. Justice Hemlock was immediately notified and with. Marshal Wegner .repaired to the place of the accident, and had the remains conveyed on a hand-car to where1, a coroner's jury was impaneled, but up to- the hour of going to press we have not been able to learn the verdict of the same. A recommendation found in 'his pocket would indicate that his name was W. J. Williams. .He also bad a room-key of Whittingham's Hotel, and upon inquiry there it was learned that a. man of that name had been employed at the place- as bar-tender, and that he left there Wednesday night about 12 o'clock. The deceased claimed at the hotel, to have worked on the northern end of the Wisconsin as a switphman pre- vious to coming to Waukesba, and that he had a brother who .worked in the freight yards of the St. Paul road at Chicago. tal is losing a golden opportunity by .sists entirely of young man Several nrrnCDO not providing residence facilities 9uf-1 of them have never held office before, 1 WAKING UP SLEEPERS. u F and- the sensation of a nomination, no ficient, for the almost. certain great] matter where it ctlme such demand.

A prominent Pennsylvania gas man has expressed the opinion that w.hile a reservoir of gas may. exist at.no great distance from the well, such-flows as have occurred are probably from gas pockets distantly connected with the source Messrs.

Thecolumns of this paper are at their disposal and..the public will dpmand that they- use the space thus offered them... They Sliould be More Explicit. A good sized audience assembled at the town hall Saturday evening to nominate a Prohibition ticket and considerable talking resulted. Mr. M. P. Smith first read a papa- on the subject: "Ami my Brother's Keep- He applied, the question to so-', loon keepers and deduced an argu- ment indicating-a negative answer for them. .And he urged that it devolved on those who' are not selling liquor to protect their brothers. Prof. Bay followed and argued from a scientific point oE view' that any use of alcoholic liquor as a, beverage i is hurtful he favored prohibition, which he declared would bring freedom and prosperity, and that the immoderate use ot liquor would not cease until put down by the strong hand of the law. The portion of the talk, however, that-had vim in it, was contributed by Mr. E. W. Chafiu. He startled his hearers by thejollowing remarks "Strange as it might seem, the standard of mornlltj- In 'Wankesba, was less tban nny other placo la the Stale.

Knew, also, of a couple of glrlB who attended chnrca having-frequented the saloons within the past few. weeks. He said that the saloons now mean I more than they did forty years Then they were conduct- id with respectability and with, regard for law and order; now it was a rare sight to a saloon that did not enter to the many forms of iniquity and vice.

Mr. Willard Warner also opened up another of "druggists as salopnists." He said "I would like to direct attention to a iing fact which had never been made pnblic: It theselling of liquor without a license. He said that In one of ourdriic stores there was a room where liquor was dlspoiwd of to those-who were in1..'the Payments were made in theusual way, but a bottle was at the disposal of those who wanted tho liquor, and all they had to do was to help themselves. He thought measures should be taken to bring the violators of the law to Justice." Thesi; grave assertions are true, or they are hot, and if- there are saloons here doing a gambling-and- assigna- tion house business, and a drug store saloon business, these.parties who say they know the.' facts! owe it to and'-themselves to at Deatli of Jas. F. Small. Last, week Wednesday at- .Chicago, occurred the death of.; Jas. ,.F. Small, once ft resident of Waukesha where he was employed for some years' as printer. He died of apoplexy and was in his 45th year. Mr. Small served in the'Union Army and after bis discharge when the Eebellion was suppressed .he worked in The Freeman office for two. years. In 1S67 he went.to Madison, thence to Milwaukee, and from there to Chicago where he afterwards made his home. He went into The Tribune, office nt the latter city, and served in several ca- pacities the composing is a., and also on the edi- torial staff. During the past year he bad been with a large publishing and printing house. His funeral took place at his home in Chicago, Saturday April 30lh, under theauapices of theG. A. he being a member of .George H. Thomas Post. The remains were con- veyed to Waukeaha for interment, and- were .accompanied by his sorrowing wife and two. children. On their arri- val-here they were met by numerous sympathizing friends, and the remains.. were conveyed to the Episcopal Church. The burial service of that denomination was conducted by the Rev. E. P. Wright, of. Milwaukee. The interment took place in Prairie Home Cemetery. The .Republican Caucus i In all our experience at Wauke- sha we have never seen'a finer body of citizens assembled at. a caucus, than were to be found at Amusement Hall t Monday evening, to nominate candidates for village, offices. The proceedings werejof the most orderly and dignified nature and proved beyond question that those present -were earnest, and had responded to the call through desire to see a stop put to the absurd Performances of a few self- sryted "laboring men." Capt. Enos was chosen chairman of the meeting, and on motion of Hon. Isaac Lain it was decided to appoint a committee of seven to rep'ort a ticket for the consideration of the caucus. Before the motion wiis put, invitations were given to any desiring to expres.. their opinions as to the advisability a Union ticket, and the motion of Mr. lain was modified by giving the com- mittee to be chosen, authority, to fer with a like committee of crats, and the motion as amended was unanimously carried; there being.not one dissenting vote in the entire audi- ence. The committee was then appotated as follows: Isaac Lain, Van. H. Bug- bee, Peter Lau; R. M. Jameson, E. C. Blair, Tbos. Kyall and F. A. Eandail. After a thorough consultation by the jommittee, the following names were eported for consideration and unani- mously nominated: John L. Gaspar. president; E.'W.. Estberg, T. E. Eyan, John Lau, C. A. R. Leadley and S. 'A. Perfcine, trustees; Samuel Dodd. Thos, Haynes, Isaac Laic., Wm. Patter- son, supervisors; W. S. Parsons, marshal; W. A. Sinsel, W. S. Green, Justice; J. Sullivan, constable.
