Killed in St. Paul.
Daniel Coughlin, 30 years old, a switchman employed by the Omaha road, met instant death shortly after 2 a. m. Friday, July 16th, in the Western avenue yards of the company. He fell from the top of a box car directly under its wheels. His body was cut in two.
The man was not missed until nearly an hour later. Matt Ellers, yard foreman, discovered the mutilated body beside the track. Coroner Jones took the body to the morgue, and later it was turned over to O’Halloran & Murphy, undertakers.
Coughlin lived with his sister, Mrs. Mary C. Haggerty. 427 Michigan avenue. She is the widow of Thomas Haggerty, a city detective, who was drowned at Heron Lake, Minn., eight years ago while on a hunting trip with ex-Mayor Smith and others. Besides Mrs. Haggerty, Coughlin is survived by his father and a sister of Chicago, a brother of Cresco, Iowa, and a sister Nellie Coughlin of St. Paul. He was unmarried.—St. Paul Dispatch.
