Thomas J. Howe

Last Saturday at 11 o'clock P. M., as the Chicago & Lake Huron freight train started from the Pittsburgh depot in this city, Thomas J., the oldest son of John Howe, 23 years old, got on, and jumping from one car top to the next fell in between them on the way out to the railway bridge and was run over by the wheels, which killed him instantly. His body was conveyed to Undertaker Noel's shop, and Coroner Paramore held an inquest there on Sunday, which reported such to be the facts, and that the railway company were no way blamable therefor. He is reported as a temperate young man, who fell in this caseon account of one car being higher than the others, and his being unaccustomed to such feats. His funeral service was conducted at St. Paul's Church on last Monday by Rev. M. O'Reilly, and, although this was very unpleasant, the remains of the dear one were followed by a large number of friends and neighbors to the new Catholic cemetery.
