Albert Volkland

Fatal Accident.
Last Sunday morning Jacob Romig and Albert Volkland, relatives and German carpenters employed by David Stoner, of Washington township, in building a corn crib, came to Valparaiso and spent the day. At night, not far from 6 o'clock, they started back to Stoner's, going by the Normal to the railway, and when they reached the track and Mr. Romig had passed the cattle guard, but Volkland was behind, the evening train called No. 1, passed westward. After it was by Mr. Romig called to Volkland to come on, but got no answer. Going back he found him lying by the track, and handling him discovered that his head was broken, and that he was bloody, and already nearly dead. He died immediately. In his pockets were three whiskey bottles, two still sound and full, the other broken. He is said to have been tipsy when he left the town. The coroner was called and held an inquest which elicited these facts, except the last one. Mr. Romig swore that Volkland was not drunk. The inquest was at the Hook and Ladder house, and the remains committed to the charge of undertaker Noel.
