Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep,

To be for such a slumber meet;

Thy kindred and their graves may be;
But thine is still a blessed sleep,
From which none ever wakes to weep.

COPPER, John Sherwood

MURDER AND SUICIDE VERDICT
Coroner Renders Decision In Deaths of Sailor and Girl.
While no statements would be made by the parents of either Eva Schmidt, 19 years old, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Schmidt, of Eastern avenue, opposite the Oaklawn Cemetery, nor John Sherlock Copper of the same age, a sailor in the Navy, who apparently carried out a suicide pact, Monday evening, it is thought that the opposition to their contemplated marriage on the part of the girl's parents  was the motive for the tragedy.  After making an investigation, Coroner William T. Riley, of the Central District gave a verdict of death as a result of bullet wound inflicted by John Sherlock Copper,in the case of Miss Schmidt, while in the case of Copper a verdict of death by suicide was given.  Coroner Riley deemed an inquest unnecessary,
The desire of the two sweethearts, as expressed in the note, "Bury  us together, Sherlock and Eva", found several hours after the double suicide, will not be granted.  The funeral of Copper will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock from the residence of his parents and will be military in character.  Burial will be in Oaklawn Cemetery.  The funeral of the girl will be held Friday morning at 8:30 o'clock. High Mass will be celebrated at 9 o'clock in Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  She wll also be buried in Oaklawn.

Supposed Victim of Ptomaine Poisoning
William J.

COPPER, William J.

Unconscious on Platform
Mr. W. J. Copper, A Former Baltimorean, Dies In Philadelphia.
While waiting for a train at the Germantown Station, Philadelphia, Mr. William J. Copper, 47? years old, a brakeman on the Reading railroad and formerly a Baltimorean, fell unconscous on the platform. A train was rapidly rounding the curve leading to the station when Mr. Copper fell, and had it not been for a policeman he would have fallen on the tracks.  An ambulance was summoned and the unconscious man was hurried to the Germantown hospital, where he died a short time later. The coroner's physician, Dr. Wadsworth, performed an autopsy and found traces of poison in Mr. Copper's stomach.  The police believe that he had ptomaine poisoning.  Dr. Wadsworth held an inquest yesterday.
For a number of years Mr. Copper worked for the Maryland Steel Company, at Sparrow's Point.  About seven years ago he went to Philadelphia and got a position with the Reading.  His wife and daughter, Miss Florence E. Copper, went with him and they made their home in Germantown.  About a year ago a misunderstanding took place between Mr. and Mrs. Copper, and with her daughter, she came to Baltimore.  She and her daughter have been boarding on Broadway, near Preston street. Before his death Mr. Copper asked that his wife be summoned.  The authorities at the hospital telephoned news of his death to his wife Sunday, but the details were not told her.  The body will be brought to Baltimore. Mr. Copper was the son of Mr. Cyrus Copper, superintendent of Mount Carmel Cemetery.  Besides his widow and daughter, who is 18 years old, he is survived by three brothers - Messrs John, George and Ezra Copper - and three sisters - Mrs. Jacob Bardy, Mrs. J.B. Miller and Mrs. J.P. HiltZ.  The funeral services will be held in this city, probably at the home of Mrs. Hiltz.

COSGROVE, Martin
WALLACE, Charles

"Two Men Killed by a Collision of Helper Engine with a Freight-
MARTIN COSGROVE AND CHARLES WALLACE DEAD-
Fireman H. W. Knox Loses a Leg and Is In a Precarious Condition-
Accident Caused By a Mistake in Reading Orders-
Peculiar Performance of the Helper Engine After the Smash-
"It was my fault entirely" were the words that came from the white, compressed lips, quivering with pain, of brave and dying Engineer Martin Cosgrove as he spoke of the disastrous wreck which occurred on the Short Line yesterday morning about 4 o'clock a mile and a half east of Orchard station. The old adage "that in the midst of life we are in death," never had a truer exemplification, for Thursday night Engineer R. J. Cosgrove, who had charge of engine No. 617 was not feeling well and requested his cousin, Martin, also an engineer to take his run out of Huntington. It was on this run that Martin Cosgrove met his death, and in the terrible wreck, Charles Wallace, head brakeman, was also killed and H. W. Knox so severely injured as now to be hovering between life and death.

HOW ACCIDENT OCCURRED

Engineer Cosgrove was in charge of engine No. 617 hauling an east-bound freight under Conductor Davis, and had orders to stop at the siding at Orchard station to let helper engine No. 301 pass returning from a run. Engineer Cosgrove forgot his orders and went on beyond the siding for a mile and a half running at full speed. He recalled his orders and started to reverse the lever as the collision occurred. The helper engine in charge of Engineer Eph McDowell and Fireman Frank Onan had no thought of danger, until they heard the rumbling of the approaching train, and both jumped just as the collision occurred, as McDowell grasped the lever to reverse, which was thrown back against him as he jumped. Neither McDowell nor Onan were injured beyond slight bruises. They state, and the statement is confirmed, that the headlight of the freight engine was not burning. It had gone out a few miles beyond Nampa.

NO TIME TO JUMP

Engineer Cosgrove, his fireman, Knox and Head Brakeman, Wallace, who was riding in the freight engine, had no time to jump, and the engine was frightfully wrecked, the boiler being upon one side of the track and the tender upon the other, the engine being practically overturned. Horribly mangled beneath the engine, with both legs cut off was found the body of Wallace. Cosgrove and Knox were both caught beneath the wreckage, but managed to extricate themselves. Knox in his dreadful pain, managed to crawl 50 feet to the north side of the track, while his dismembered leg, which was torn off at the knee was found on the south side. Engineer Cosgrove was so caught in the wreck that the escaping steam literally roasted him.

THE WRECKAGE

The freight engine, as stated, was almost completely demolished, while eight or 10 of the freight cars were piled in a heap, making one of the worst wrecks of the character that has occurred on the Short Line for a long time. The helper engine, besides damage to the cab, was hardly damaged at all, and did not leave the track, but with the fact that Engineer McDonald had started to reverse the lever, it jumped forward and ran wild for a distance of eight miles, before coming to a stand-still.

HELP SENT FORWARD

Immediately after the accident Conductor Davis hastened with all speed to Orchard station and telegraphed the news to Nampa, and the Owl train, which leaves Boise at 3:25, upon its arrival at Nampa, was sent at once to the scene, carrying Drs. Murray and Kohler of Nampa, who had been at once aroused from their beds.

HIS BODY UNDER ENGINE

Head Brakeman Wallace of the freight was still under the wreckage. It could be seen that both his legs had been cut off near his hips and that he was dead. It was impossible to remove his body until the wrecking crew arrived. Wallace's body had been roasted frightfully. His remains were lying at a point near the boiler, where the scalding steam had enveloped him as in a furnace. As soon as possible Cosgrove and Knox were placed on the train to be brought to Boise. The train arrived here with them at 8:55. Dr. Murray of Nampa came in with the injured men, who were taken to St. Alphonsus' hospital. Dr. McCalla, the Short Line surgeon at this place, was summoned and he at once called Dr. Collister to assist him. Later Dr. Springer and Dr. Bowere were also summoned. On the road to Boise Cosgrove and Knox told their stories between gasps Cosgrove admitted he had misread his orders, as stated in the foregoing, and that he had discovered his error too late. Knox said he crawled out of the wreckage into the sagebrush, where he remained some time before being found.

DIED AT HOSPITAL

Shortly after arrival at the hospital Cosgrove died of his injuries. His death was due to the awful scalding he had received, he having been enveloped in the escaping steam from head to foot and great strips of skin and flesh had peeled off of him.

KNOX RESTING EASILY

Fireman Knox has withstood the shock of his leg being torn off with remarkable grit and fortitude. The physicians in charge amputated the stump a few inches above the knee. At a late hour last night he was sleeping. He is very weak and has lost a great deal of blood.

SOMETHING OF THE MEN

Martin Cosgrove was 26 years of age and was a native of Maryland, his widowed mother living at Western Port, that state. His father was an engineer, and he has a brother who is now an engineer on the Baltimore & Ohio. He came to Idaho in 1893 and had been employed on the Short Line ever since. He has no relatives in this state, excepting, as stated, his cousin, Engineer R. J. Cosgrove. He was an intimate friend, however, of D. J. Malone, Oregon Short Line mechanic, at Pocatello, who knew his family in the east and who arrived last evening to aid in the funeral arrangements. Mr. Cosgrove was a member of the B. of L. E. of Pocatello division No. 228, and the body will be shipped to his old home by his fellow members and will be accompanied by Engineers Jack Hiler, Frank Dryden and R. J. Cosgrove. Charles Wallace was about 38 years of age and has a wife and child and widower sister at Ogden. His remains were brought to this city last night and will be shipped to Ogden, by the order of the B. of R. T. of which he was a member. Mr. Wallace was an old-time railroad man, having been employed on the Utah & Northern some 20 years ago. Fireman Knox is a new man at railroading, having been employed on the Short Line, his first experience, for a matter of three of four months only. His parents live at Keokuk, Iowa."
Note: He was the son of Martin Cosgrove and Catherine Connolly
