IN CITY AND COALFIELD
Much Coal to be Moved
During the past few days the Norfolk and Western has devoted so much attention to passenger traffic that it was reported last night that there are about 4000 loads of coal in the field which will be moved today and Sunday. The miners were kept at work up to a late hour yesterday before they were paid off. Every company which had the cars loaded them to capacity and will wait for removal.
Killed by Train
J. B. Morgan, aged 28 of Elk, was run over and killed at Iaeger on Friday morning by an extra. The man lay down on the track and went to sleep and the engineer did not see him until too late to stop.
No Passengers Injured
Superintendent W. S. Becker said last night that he had not received a report on the wreck of the passenger train which connects with train No. 15 at Portsmouth, but he had learned unofficially that there were no passengers injured. The engine and tank turned over and several of the cars left the track, but there was no serious damage done.
