Arthur L. Case

Arthur L. Case, of Toledo, Ohio, an engineer on the Lake Shore road, was instantly killed at this place Tuesday morning at 6:40 o'clock. Case's engine was standing at the tank taking water and he was out oiling up. When he finished one side he walked around to the other side and had just stepped onto the other track when fast mail train No. 3, due here at 6:30, and running at the rate of 50 miles an hour, struck the unfortunate man in the left hip, crushing in the side and breaking several ribs. The body was thrown about fifty feet across the track and fell in a snow bank. The fast train was stopped and backed up to the depot, and the crew picked the man up and carried him into the waiting room, but life was already extinct. The remains were removed to Lundberg's undertaking establishment where Coroner Ketchum held the inquest Tuesday afternoon. Case was a Mason and a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. J. W. Watson and R. S. Lamb, of the latter organization, came here in the afternoon and accompanied the remains to Toledo on the 9:50 p. m. train.

Case's regular run was from Elkhart to Toledo and this was one of his first trips on this end of the road. He had accumulated considerable property and was quite wealthy. He leaves a wife and a large number of friends to mourn his untimely death.
