Mystery Seen In Boy's Death
Railroad Officials Say He Was Not Hit By Train
Moorhead, Minn., Hune 16.—The 18-year-old boy who died in a Jamestown, North Dakota, hospital yesterday after he had been found with skull fractured along the Northern Pacific railroad right of way near Bloom, North Dakota, was not struck by passenger train No. 7, according to a statement by F. C. Huntington, superintendent of the Fargo division, today. Mr. Huntington said that the engineer of the train reported that his engine had struck no one but that he had noticed what looked like a bundle of rags where the boy was found. Mr. Huntington also said that advices from Jamestown indicated that the injuries had been inflicted with a club.
Three transients were last night reported to have told a section man who found the boy that had been hit by the train.
