morning half" an hour late, running
at a good speed with Engineer
Given and Fireman Fred Shields oa
the engine, the train struck a team .'
being driven by Lee H. Wallace,
drayman, and bo'h horses were killed
outright. . .
Wallace Was thrown against the
sidewalk and his head was crushed. '
He was at once removed to the hos
pital and made as comfortable as pos
sible, but he has very little chance to
live. Those who saw the accident at
tach no blame to the enginemen. for
neither Engineer Given, who was on
the opposite side of the engine, nor
Fireman Shields wre able to see the
team until less than 100 yards away
from the crossing where the accident
happened.. All engineer's blow the
whistle at that point, once for the
crossing, and as the train nears the
crossing, once for the station. Mr.
Given had just released the whistle
lever when the ngiue struck the team. .
Mr, .Wallace, who Is about 30 year
of age, .and has. a wife and a little
girl, had the reputation,' according-to' '
recoils from Baker City, of being a
raielosa driver. The track is straight
for 'more than, a mile beyond the point
of the accident, and the PPly expl'V.
.nation or the Hecldeut is that he tried .
to cross in front of the train, which
according to Fireman Shields, was a
physical impossibility. The engine
whs very clos as was said above,
