"A man said to be stealing a ride on a Union Pacific train near Lenape, east of Lawrence, last night, was killed. The body could not be identified. It was taken in charge by Coroner Davis of Leavenworth county. It was rumored in Lawrence this morning that the man was a Union Pacific brakeman but this proved to be untrue."

From skyways.org: "Lenape, a village of Leavenworth county, is situated in the extreme southeastern portion on the Kansas river and the Union Pacific R. R. about 20 miles southwest of Kansas City. It has two general stores, a telegraph station, a money order postoffice, and in 1910 had a population of 85."
