Oroflno Train Wreck.
Yesterday afternoon the Orofino train bound for Lewiston was badly wrecked. The mixed freight train consisted of four carloads hogs belonging to Mr. Stueber, of Uniontown, two box cars, three flats, a steam shovel, tender, one passenger coach and the express car. The traiu was running at about the rate of sixteen miles an hour, when at the twenty-two mile post from Potlatch and two miles east of Contact the train had just rouuded a curve and was on a tangent, when one of the trucks under the heavy steam shovel left the track. The engineer felt the jar but the train ran nearly a hundred yards before he could see that there was anything wrong. He first noticed the ponderous steam shovel flying up in the air and immediately applied the air brakes. The jumping over the ties of the steam shovel had evidently broken the king-bolts under the shovel and when the air was applied the train parted, the trucks pulling out from under the steam shovel, which dropped to the ground. The shovel proper became detached from the crane when the first flat car struck the shovel and was turned crosswise of the track which in turn threw the shovel into the river. Then commenced^ one of the most miraculous piling and conglomerating of railroad material ever witnessed. Within 55 feet there was ten sets of car wheels, three flat cars, and one box car piled on top of one another. The passenger car platform was shoved into the box car which stands on end at an angle of 45 degrees. The flat car was "jack-knifed," being entirely broken in to and doubled up. Fortunately the passenger car remained upon the track, and is not materially damaged. A. Gibson is in charge of the construction. Mr. Proule, superintendent of fences and track, Indian Agent Stranahan, E. E. Harvey and about 15 others were aboard the train.' There was but one lady pas senger, a Miss Snodgrass, of Juliaetta. Outside of a severe shaking up, no one was seriously' hurt. The passengers all agreed that Friday was not such an un lucky day after all. The engine was run i. H. HENLEY. H. B. HENLEY. J. W.

Yesterday while on his way to his ranch near Kamiah, George W. Morri son, formerly of this city, jumped from moving train and broke the bone in his right leg between thejknee and ankle. When seen by a reporter for the Teller at his room in the Hotel De France, Mr, Morrison said: '*1 had just made ar rangements with Supt. Gilbert of the N P. to make a flag station on my home stead, though the traiumen had not been notified, and as we neared the point where I was to alight I threw my bag gage from the train and waited for the engineer to slow down, but as he did not do so, I concluded to wait until we had passed some bad places, and while stand ing on the steps of the car I noticed ahead of me a rock cut which knew would catch me if I did not jump at once. I felt the hones in my leg crack, and should I have let go of the railiug, I should have been swept under w ^ lee I* the moving train. I con ' ^ sider myself, very fortunate that the re sults were no worse than they are, and am greatly indebted to the train crew for their kindness and assistance in making things comfortable for me. I do not at tach any blame to them whatever. Mr. Morrison is resting very easily and is being attended by Drs. C. C. Phillips and J. B. Morris.
