A PÀSSESGEB TRAIN ON THE PAEK
BRANCH BUSHES DOWN
By a Miracle No One is Killecl.
Early yesterday afternoon the rail
road officials at Livingston were noti
fied that the east-bound passenger
train on the Park branch had been
wrecked and that the engineer and
fireman were seriously hurt. A wreck
ing train was immediately made up
and dispatched toward the scene of
the wreck bearing among others an
•The wreck occurred about 44 miles
from Livingston or a little over a mile
this side of Mulheriirs. At that point
the track is laid upon anartificlal em
bankment of loose soil between the
overhanging cliffs and the river. From
the roadbed to the river level the per
pendicular descent is fully 50 feet, but
slopes so that the incline will measure
perhaps 25 feet more, About 50 feet
from the western end of the embank
ment is a short trestle built over a
narrow ravine. The train consisted,
in the order named, of an engine, a box
ear loaded to its utmost - capacity'*\vith
bullion, baggage car, second class car,
first class coach andj >: tho private car,
••Railway Age" occupied by E. II.
Talbott, his wife, and a small party
of friends. Except the bullion car
every other carriage in the tram had
occupants, the two coaches ceing well
filled with ladies and gentlemen many
of them returning from the Park.
The train was in charge of J. C. Bent
the pioneer conductor of the Park
At the time of tlu* accident and pre
ceding it a blinding shower of rain
had been falling and the water thus
precipitated upon the steep cliffs above
the track rushed down a narrow
course, and striking the embankment
near the western end soaked and
washed the loose soil until the rail
near the river was left unsupported
along a space of perhaps ten feet. Be
yond this point there is a heavy de
scending grade and a curved cutting.
The engine drawing the train was not
provided with air-brake apparatus,
and though her steam was shut off
the train was running very fast down
the gratfe. The engineer, J. W.
Moore, saw the washout, but too late
to avert the calamity. He pulled the
reverse lever and as he dul so tile
locomotive passed over the wash
out with a terrible lurch,
but did not leave the
rails. In a moment the heavy car
loaded with bullion struck aad snapped
the bent rail and plunged down the
embankment followed by the baggage
car and second class coach and disrail
ing the first class coach. Half way
down the bank the bullion car which
had slipped off its trucks became so
firmly buried in the soil that it stop
ped and the cars behind closed up
against each other and also came to
an easy standstill. When the box car
left the top of the grade the engine to
which it was immediately attached
had reached the trestle but was jerked
from the rail by the weight of the
falling cargo of bullion and crashing
through the trestle work fell top
downward and fearfully wrecked into
the ravine below. There were three
men on the engine,—Engineer Moore,
Jas. Meadows the fireman and George
Munro brother of Master Mechanic,
J. C. Munro. It would appear that
the warning was so short that there
was no time for any attempt at escape
yet all three picked themselves up out
of the water at the foot of the bank
al've and it is hoped without any fatal
hurtsF The fireman was jammed be
tween the tender and the cab, if is be
lieved. before -being*thrown out .and is
injured about the region of his hips.
His hurt is sufficiently serions but un
less injured internally he will recover.
He is under JQr. Sabin's care at the
liosp&tl. Mr. Moore the engineer es
caped with a foot badly scalded by the
strêun that rushed from the broken in
jector, Beyond;a few bruises, Mr.
Mnnro c^me oat unhurt. The passen
gers were shaken up a lit th
but none complained of the
slightest injury. It seems
like a miracle that there are no fatali
ties to record. It seems impossible
that a passenger train could go off that
embankment in such a manned with
out causing great loss of life. The
occupants of the engine escaped death
only by the merest shadow of a
chance. Mr. Talbott and his party on
the "Railway Age" consider that they
narrowly avoided serious or fatal in
juries. It has been the custom to
bring the passenger cars down the
branch in the same relative posit ion to
each other as when they went up,
merely putting an engine on the for
ward end. But at Mr. Talbott's earu
e st solicitation tiie train was turned
yesterday, placing his car in the rear
and the others in front in regular
order. Had this not been done the
"Railway Age" and the other pas
senger coaches would have piled in
one wreck at the foot of the bank,
with the terrible weight of the
bullion car on top of all. As it was
the latter served a good purpose by
settling into the earth and checking
the descent of those behind. All the
cars maintained their upright position
and are not badly wrecked, but the
locomotive is crushed by its fall, and
lying there silent and useless reminds
the spectator of a living thing de
prived of life. To recover it from its
present position and put it in running
condition will involve vast labor
and expense. A force of men with
necessary material went out with the
wrecking train and were immediately
set at work laying a track around the
wreck to bring in the coach "Railway
Age." The injured men and the pas
sengers on the train are loud in their
praises of the occupants of this car.
Mrs. Talbott was fortunately provided
with surgical appliances, including
lint, bandages, and soothing liniments.
These she immediately produced and
the engineer's scalded foot was bound
up so comfortably that* he was willing
to believe he had been visited by a
sister of mercy. All the comforts of
food, and diink, and comfortable
shelter on board the car were placed
at the disposal of the wrecked party
many of whom were glad to avail
themselves of the kind offer. The
wreck, though bad enough in all con
science, might easily have been in
finitely worse and not the slightest
blaim cun be attached to anyone for
its cause. —■
Butte will not be downed, and so
the driving of the last spike on her
only sidewalk was made the occasion
of universal rej oieing last Friday.
Route agents sometimes forget way
stations and Helena's mail has been
slightly demoralized since the advent
of the civilizing motor in her midst.
Work is progressing rapidly on the
Billings artesian well, it having now
reached the depth of 70 feet. 3ïo
trouble is experienced from surface
At Park City Rufus Hatch went
into the cab, took charge of the engine
of his excursion train and made the
run to Billings, twenty-three miles, in
Gen. Hazen has spent the last fort
night in apologizing to denizens of
western Montana for the unfavorable
opinion formed, and unkind words
on the occasion of his first visit six
teen years ago.
One J. S. L. Marchessian, a book
keeper for one of a similarly unproun
ouncably name at Butte,
placed the business end of a gun to his
ear and now a monument is in order,
temporary* aberration is what the
coroners jury said.
A correspondent of the Madison.
Wis., Democrat, in speaking of the»,
people between Bismarck and the
National Park says: "All along the
traveller is impressed with the number
of young âud middle aged hue inn: *
men he meets. They are full of energy
aad ambition. Dr oners and lazy men
do not beert me pioneers. It requires
ambition, and industry, and pluck,
and push, and brains to successfully
confront the hardships and difficulties
of the frontier. This accounts fbr the
healthful growth and vigor: and 'boom*
of the west.
