Boise Citv, Feb. 7. A Statesman
cial from Fayette snys: At about 8 o'clock j
yesterday morning tbe second section of
passenger train No. 2, east bonnd, when
about one and a half miles east of Old
Ferry and about eleven miles west of
Weiser, met with an accident caused by
either the spreading of the rails or by the
velocity of the train, which, from the best
information to be got from several of the '
possengers, was running at. the rate of
about City miles an hour causing the
baggage, . smoker, chair, dining and Full
man sleeping cars to have the track, and
the bagt'age, smoker and chair cars to roll
j down iin embankment about fif'v feet
I high. The stove in the hnggige c:ir wis
! overturned and what might have been a
very serious affair was prevented by that
portion of the baggage cur to which the
stcve was thrown, together with liaggac
and express matter of a somewhat com
bustible .r:ati. re, being submerged in Snake
river, thsfs extinguishing the fire.
A Oiiid the Only One KilW.
As soon as those who were not injured,
together with the train men, c uld recover
from the shock they immediately went to
the assistance of those w ho were less for
tunate and found that of all the passengers

horrible stench arises, doubtless caused
by the dead bodies of human being and
animals entangled in the mass.

died out, and there is no longer any fear of
any further disturbance. T!ie trouble arose
over a card t iblp at Humphrey's beef

Two Strikes lias Keen Maligned.
Four of Pie Indian police, led by Joe
Bush, trailed the murderers. After a long
chase they caught up with the Indians,
four in number, killed three of them and
captured the fourth. The good work of
the native police resulted in the promotion
of each of the four men in the posse. Two

and all the prominent chiefs condemn the
murders and express satisfaction at their
quick punishment. Two Sticks, a notori
ously unruly Indian, was wit h the party,
but escaped. The other chiefs will assist
