Waterloo, Jan. 3 – The continued absence of Henry Anderson, carpenter-foreman who worked on the construction of the new Illinois Central shops caused great anxiety in the home of his family in Chicago. Anderson had been in the city several months had been in the habit of going home on Sunday, having transportation on the road by which he was employed. He left for Chicago on the Saturday train that was wrecked near Rockford, and the fact that he never reached his destination has confirmed the opinion of his friends that he was killed and his body burned in the wreckage. Absolutely no clue to his whereabouts has been secured since he boarded the fatal train in this city.
