O * IBoseman, Jan. 25.-A railroad wreck occurred at Logan about 5 * * o'clock this morning when No. 12 Eastbound passenger was run into 4 * by a special Eastbound freight. No one was injured although the 4 * freight engine struck the sleeper on No. 12 and threw two of them ofi 4 * the track. 4 * Both trains were coming in to Logan and both were making for the 4 * same siding and the freight ran into No. 12 at about an angle of 30 4 4 degrees or less. 4 * The engineer of the freight claimed his brakes would not work. 4 * It Was Narrow Escape. O * Mr. and Mrs. James Sawes of this city were on the train and in an 4 4 interview stated that it was only owing to both trains traveling at a 4 4 reduced speed that prevented an awful accident. O * The only damage was to the two sleepers and a general shaking up 4 o of passengers and some injuries to the mogul freight engine. Superin- 4 o tendent Horn was soon on the ground, having come over from Living- 4 * ston in his special car which traveled between Buzeman and Logan O * at a rate of a mile a minute. 4 * Traffic was delayed for about five hours as one sleeper was jammed 0 * almost into the Logan depot and the rails of the main line were badly 4 * spread. 4' tai 4 S[[KING A CURE ENGLI&H DOCTORS THINK THEY HAVE MADE DISCOVERY. ELECTRICITY IS THE PANACEA Believed That By the New Plan of Administering the High Voltage That Cures of the Dread Dis ease Can Be Accomplished. (By Associated Press.) London, Jan. 25.-Experiments are being made on a most elaborate scale in London with a modification of Tesla's high frequency electrical currents in the treatment of consumption. It is stated that some remarkable re sults have been achieved. Experiments for the most part have been made by Professor Kengham, an eminent West End surgeon, in the course of his private practice, but with the knowledge and approval of leading con sumption specialists. For various reasons, but principally because of evil results which might ensue if the system were used by any but the most experienced medical men, with a perfect knowledge of the forces they were dealing with, the experiments have been quietly conducted. Applications for details of the methods have not been encouraged. Dr. Bokenham has fitted up an elab orate apparatus for the production of electricity in the particular form it is used. The net result is that a current of 80,000 volts is produced of such high frequency, and administered in such emall quantities that the consumptive patient may receive it without the slight eat injury. Does Much Good Anyway. The awe-inspiring force of this voltage may best be appreciated when it is re membered that only 500 volts are em. ployed for driving trains on a railway. Yet the patient is not conscious of the enormous electrical pressure. Dr. Bokenham's experience is that in very bad cases of consumption the cough has been greatly reduced, night sweats have disappeared, appetite has improved, and there has been a great gain in weight and general health, so that even if the consumption bacilli have not been destroyed, it is certain that their vint lence has been much decreased; that they have been brought under control and that the patient has felt cured. A doubt entertained by phthisis spe cialists who do not question this tem porary improvement is whether it is any. thing but mere exhilaration. Dr. Bokenham, however, has great faith in the future of the system. BUILD NEW ROAD GEORGE GOULD WILL EXTEND HIS SYSTEM TO COAST. RIVAL THE UNIIN PACIFIC Said to Have Found an Easy Route Across the Sierra Nevada Moun tains and Through Mining Camps. (By Associated Press.) Denver, Jan. 25-The News today says: Surveys are being made and the right of way secured, west of Salt Lake, to San Francisco, by representatives of George Gould, and his associates which indicate that within another year, the Rio Grande systems in Colorado and Utah and the Gould connections east of this state will, together, with a new ' ne west of Salt Lake city form a great .rans-continental route to rival the Union Pacific and Santa Fe. Of MIJCHINITREST 8ECRETARY HITCHCOCK MAKES THE CORRECT DECISION. COMMISSIONER IS REVERSED Question About the Validity of Forest Reserve Scrip Has Been Finally Determined By the Depart-. ment. (Rpectal to Inter Mountain.) Helena, Jan. 25.-Notice was received in Helena of a decision by the secretary of the interior, which will be of great in terest to many woolgrowers and stock. men in the West, involving as It does about 100,000 acres of land in Montana and probably 50,000 acres In Idaho, Wyo mning, Washington, and many large tracts in Oregon and other Western states as well. The commissioner of the general land office held that where an application to select under the act of June 4, 1897, forest reserve rerip was incomplete when filed in the local land office; that the se lector had no vested rights, and that practically his application was void from the beginning. Commissioner Turned Down. Had this decision been sustained by the secretary of the interior, thousands of stockmen, woolgrowers and ranchmen generally would have been affected as to the selections of unsurveyed lands, for congress, in July, 1900, enacted that from and after October 1, 1900, unsurveyed lands were not susceptible of selection by relinquishment of forest reserve lands, hence, if the commissioners' ruling was held to be final, all incomplete selec tions filed prior to October 1, 1900, would have become void and the selectors would have lost their right to select un surveyed lands. An appeal was at once taken to See retary of the Interior Hitehcock, who decided that no discrimination shall be made as against forest reserve lieu se lections, by reason of any technical de fect in the original application, as it has been held that, in the absence of an in tervening adverse claim, in all other classes of land entries, the entryman may perfect his claim by furnishing such additional evidence as may be required in such cases, and it is so held in cases of selections under the act of June 4, 1897.
