Confusion in Running Time Given a
Reason for Collision on Arizona
Confusion In running time of the
Arizona cars, due to tae addition of a !
third car on the iine, is given as the
cause of a head on collision of cars
between Stanton and Kansas streets

the slight injury of three passengers
and the injury of a motorman. The

the exact spot "where the fatal wreck
of three years ago occurred, when two
passengers were killed.
The outbound car was in charge of
conductor W. F. Salsbury and motor
man C. F. Landmark. The motorman's
explanation of the accident was that

which he thought was at the end at
the line It is said that passengers on I
Tne car warnea me motorman of the
tj atead. but that he continued duwn '
tiie Frade from Oregon stri et at top
speed. The inbound car was at a stand
still when the collision occurred and
the motorman of the outbound one had
reversed his power and set his brakes,
thus reducing the impact.
The injured, who were on the out
bound car. were:. Miss Florence San
ders, slightly bruised on the face and
head; TV". H. Hotter, bruised on the
face and both knees skinned; P. E.
Bloomer, left knee wrenched. Motor
man J. H. Reinisch, of the inbound car,
was the only one who received a se
rious injury. His left leg was cut to
the bone when the collision occurred.
He does not know how his Injury was
There were only a few passengers
on the inbound car and no one except th
motorman was injured. The cars were
only slightly damaged by the accident,
but traffic on the Arizona line was
delayed 20 minutes.

Santa Rosa, N. M., Dec. 20. News
has reached here of the loss by fire of
the handsome new school building at
East Vaughn. The cause of the fire

but little over a, year ago for the pur
pose of erecting two school buildings,
both in the city of East Vaughn, and the
one destroyed is said to have cost some
thing over $3000, and one of the best
planned school buildings in the county,
and completely furnished.
