The speaker recognized Perry 5 i ■ RAILROAD WRECKS Eveiyone is interested in the great liiroad wrecks, 'accounts of which re daily chronicled in the newspa pers of the country, but very few know little if anything of the great and mechanical genius which is brougnt into action in the clearing away of these wrecks and the restor ing of the engines and rolling Stock to their original condition when they are damaged and put out of service as the result of these disasters. The public is interested in these matters only momentarily and very seldom does its knowledge of the affair ex tend further than an acquaintance with the list of dead and" injured, and the delay of the trains subsequent to such wrecks. 'Of the wreck trains and the work of the wrecking crows but little is known, and yet their work is of so great importance that, an account of their operations can not hut prove in teresting. At most the division points of the railroad systems where repair shops are maintained, wrecking trains are kept in readiness for in stant use when a demand for their services .arises. Such a train is kept fully equipped at the shops in this city ami is under the direct supervis ion of General Oar Foreman Fred W. Wright, says the Great Falls Leader. Mr. Wright lias been in the employ of (lie Montana Central as foreman of the ear shops since Feb. 21, 1,893. lie is a graduate of Cambridge (England) university, and entered the railway service in 1882 in St. Paul as car foreman for flic Chicago, St. Paul. Minneapolis & Omaha railroad, and the next year took a position with the St. Paul, Minneapolis &. Manitoba railroad, now the Great Northern. In speaking of the railroad wrecks along the line of the Montana Central, Mr. Wright stated the following to the Leader: "When a wreck occurs L am at once informed of the matter with a description of the cnaracter of the wreck and am furnished with an en gine aim train crew to convey the wreck-train to the scene of the acci dent. Tlio wreck-train consists of a steam derrick car, a tool car, a car of blocks, a protection car and a car of extra trucks. All possible speed is made to the point of the wreck, and our first object is to open the main line and to clear away the wreck so that the track or bridge may he made passable and traffic resumed. This work, of course, continues re gardless of night, day or meal hours. All rolling stock is saved from injury after the track is cleared as nearly as is possible, but it is an after con sideration and much property is 'sac rificed in order to get, the track cleared. The picking up of the wreck age is usually done during regular working hours. The steam derrick is used altogether in-handling such cars and tenders that are within reach and makes quick and compara tively easy work. "With locomotives, whether turned over or not. it is usual to put in what is known as the dead man. This is a hole 12 feet long, 2 1-2 feet wide, and from 4 to 5 feet deep. In this hole are buried heavy timbers to whieli is attached a heavy rope or chain. To the end of the rope is at tached an especially heavy triple block and a similar block is attached to the steam dome of the wrecked engine. Then there is strung through these blocks as much ns is necessary of a 2 1-2 inch manila rope, 600 feet in length, anil to this is attached a live locomotive which furnishes power for rolling or lifting the dead engine. Before turning the dead engine, however, it is usual to lay a floor of track tics. Upon tills floor we sometimes place rails anil drop the wheels upon them as the engine is turned over. Then when the engine is in a perpendicular con dition with all wheels upon the rails it becomes necessary to do some grading in accordance with the level where the engine may be and the main line. Then a track is laid and the engine is pulled up by means of the tackle used in pulling it into position on the temporary track. The big engine No. 800 wnich was turned over near Basin recently was taken up a grade of 18 per cent af ter being righted. "The general car or wrecking fore man personally handles all wrecks, hut is frequently accompanied by the master mechanic, the train master, to move the passage ot bill to pro hibit the sale of fire arms, opium and intoxicating liquors in certain islands the Pacific. Bailey brought mat ters to a ' complete stan„ still, by making the point of no quorum. A call of the house was ordered and ( no sergeant-at-arms was instructed to bring in the absentees, it w 10.20 before enough members were brought in to make up a quorum. THEY PRAYED FOR HIM And Then Hanged Him To A Tree. KILLED A WHITE MAN. Murder and Lyncaing As a Result of a Miners' Quarrel in Missouri. Kansas. City, Mo., March 2.—A special to the Star from Camden, says Dewey Smith, the negro miner who yesterday shot and killed Ches ter Stanley a white miner near Rich mond, Mo., was captured late last night and taken back to the scene of his crime and his body is now hang big to I: tree. He confessed to the killing, hut said it was in self defense, and he was sorry. He asked that his body be sent to his mother in Kansas City. He then asked if some one would pray for him. One man pray ed for him: "Oh, uod have mercy on his soul, this poor, doomed man, and oh, <!od, remember and have pity on the soul of the man he murdered." The rope was placed around Smith's nock and thrown over a tree and at 2.22 p. m. he was launched into eternity. the general road master and the as sistant general superintendent, who of course all are interested in get ting the track cleared as soon as possible. At the recent Riverdale wreck there was totally destroyed four new 100,000 pound capacity ore ars, one new way car, one caboose and two box cars. These were de stroyed by lire originating from a stove smashed in me caboose when the car was struck by the engine." The steam derrick which we use is made by the Industrial Iron Works, of Michigan. It is nearly all con structed of steel and weighs 122,000 pounds. It is equipped with a pair of 25-horse power engines has its own boilers and carries a sufficient supply of fuel and water. Its lifting capacity is 70,000 pounus." Engine No. 515 which was in charge of Engineer A1 Jewell when it was wrecked at Riverdale is stand ing in the yards at the shops and is as nearly a pile of scrap iron as it is possible for an engine to become. Almost all of its fittings are miss ing, the front end is mashed in, the smoke stack, head light, bell, pilot and front trucks are mashed off, the cal) is gone, having been reduced to kindling wood, and the tender is a complete wreck. it does not look as though the engine can ever he used again, but in the course of a few months when the machinists and painters complete tneir work upon her, she will emerge from the shops with the appearance of a brand new locomotive.
