Niel, S. P. A.
Mr. S. P. A. Niel - Colorado Daily Chieftain May 17, 1872 - Terrible Accident – A heart rending accident, and one which has cast a cloud of gloom over the entire community, occurred at the foot of Santa Fe avenue, about eight o'clock last evening. At the time mentioned, Mr. S.P.A. Niel, a fresh importation from the country, who had arrived in town for the purpose of enjoying a visit with his many friends, set out to cross the street just in advance of a large heavily loaded freight wagon, but missed his footing and fell directly beneath the juggernaut wheels, which passed directly over him, breaking his back and both of his legs. Hearing a shout of anguish, the driver attempted to stop his horses but did not succeed in doing so until the direful results we have described took place. Hearing the outcry, two or three gentlemen rushed to the spot, and seeing that the unfortunate victim was past all medical aid, one of them deliberately drew his revolver and shot a ball through his head, which ended his suffering and sent him to the happy hunting grounds. No inquest was considered necessary and none was held, but a colored individual was rewarded with fifty cents to haul the body to the bone yard and erect over it a slab, bearing the simple yet touching inscription, “died of over confidence.”
