Tho Laredo correspondent of tbo Fort Worth
Gnzctto telegraphs as follows: Lain In tho
vcnlngof tho 13th Instant tho north bound
Ixcd train on tbo Mexican National railroad
In chargo of Conductor Forbes ran over and
killed a young Mexican named Sanchez about
seven miles north of Hustamcnte Mexico.
Tho Moxlcan was trying to Ileal n ride and fell

onocd. nitd tho crew went back to investi
gate when they found n bundle of blankets
und clothes und a 111 t lo further bark the dead
body of Sanchez with tlto top of his bead cut
off whoro tho wheels had passed over.

was to stop off for oxiuplnittlou very sen-
suuy turned tuo trnin over in another tow at

A geniiemna wno nas just returned irom

killing of young Sanchez near that'plncc which
Is about ns follows: Young Sanchez was on
his way from Saltillo Moxlco to Sail Antonio.
Texas whore ho had rolatlves. Ho purchased
n Roeonu-ciass ticket rnm .Monterey to Laredo
and loft Monterey on tho 12th but stopped nt

along attempted nu his ticket to go in a first-
olass coach when tho conductor forcibly pulled
mm out or tne concn uy main strength on tne
platform of tho car and then shoved him bo
twecn thorn killing lilm. This gentleman also
informs us that everybody lus been released
from Jail nnd trains are running unmolested
nlthough It is a hard matter for tho Moxicun
National to Induce an Amerlcau employee to
go into Mexico as tho feeling Is so strong
against American railroad men down thorp.
