DISASTER AT THE BRIDGE
NORTHERN PACIFIC FREIGHT
TRAIN WAS WRECKED, BUT ALL
THE MEMBERS OF THE CREW
Specials to The Journal.
Fergus Falls, Minn., A catastrophe
was nearly averted on the Northern
Pacific'at Pelican River, four miles
west of here, last night.
A crew was engaged in repairing
a bridge and had removed the ties
under sixteen feet of rail when an
extra freight came thru from the
west. A steep incline leadlp to the
river, and the air brakes failed to
work. The engineer reversed his en
gine and the fireman jumped.
The engine and four cars passed
over safely, the brakeman being: on
the fourth car. The fifth car went
down and was followed by four or
five others. The cars were badly de-
molished and a wrecker was at work
all night. Passenger trains are back
ing up to the wreck and passengers
are being transferred.
