TO M WRECK
J. C. GULLING WAS
ON ONE TRAIN
SCENES EXTREMELY HORRIBLE
HIS OWN ESCAPE WAS CLOSE AND
HAS NOT SEEN LOCAL VICTIMS
Wreck Worst Coming to His Knowl
edge ot Railroading:.
Conductor J. C. Gulling of this city
has returned from Spokane, and that
he is alive is due largely to good for
tune which camped on his trail dur
ing the horrible wreck at La Crosse,
near Coeur d'Alene last Saturday
evening. Mr. Gulling was riding in
the street car train, and well up in
front of the car which jammed into
the motor train and Uy which 15 were
killed and scores wounded. His fam
ily and friends here were not aware
that Mr. Gulling was in the Coeur
d'Alene region at the time of the
wreck, and have been at peace with
their minds during the interim.
In company with an old-time friend
from Spokane Mr. Gulling was going
out to the lakes on a street car train
made up of new equipment. At the
time of the crash, the two were sitting
near the forward end of the car and
the Impact was sufficient to throw Mr.
Gulling over the seat at his front,
and into the aisle. When he had
righted himself and reached the open,
what he describes as the most hor
rible sight coming to his vision dur
ing his long term of service in rail
road work, greeted his eyes. For
tunate for him, the greatest damage
was done to the motor car, composed
of poorer equipment.
Gruesome Scenes Indeed.
Some of the Incidents related by
Mr. Gulling are truly awfully. He
stated today, that in passing the de
bris after the wreck, streams of hu
man blood as large as small eardan
hose would be seen oozing out of the
cracks In the wreckage. One woman
in the same car with Mr. Gulling, was
struck in the cnest by a splinter. The
board was about five inches wide, and
penetrated the body directly over the
heart. It did not stop in its death
course until protruding a distance of
several inches out of the back.
Contrary to general opinions, there
were but few "scenes." As soon as
the first crash was over, a pall of
silence fell on the living and those
who escaped uninjured, employes of
a mill nearby had rushed to the scene
and rescue work progressed for con
siderable time very quietly and In
morgue-like silence. The survivors
were too horrified to speak.
Mr. Gull'ng was not aware that Ed
Thomas was on either of the trains,
and learned, the fact only after
the Elgin men hurt in the
