The Runaway Train Jumps the
Track Near Stella, Wash,
: . Two men Probably Fatal
ly Hurt Cars and
Engine Piled in a
, Heap. .
Portland, Nov. 10. The Ttle
gram eays: A wild ride down a
steep grade on a runaway railroad
train, from which both engineer
and firemen had sought safety by
jumping, ended in a severe masbup
Dear Stella, Waeh., as a result of
which George Weiss is minus a leg
and Max Welderman is suffering
from severe internal injuries. Butb
men are at the Good Samaritan hos
pital id this city. A logging train
on which the two men were, got be
yond control when on a heavy
grade, . Welderman's home in
Stark street. Weiss is part owner
in the logging camp from whiob
material was being bauiaa wnetvtne
accident occurred. , Bth are tkell
known They may recover.-
Six trien, the traia 4 crew7 were
aboard the train- when it got beyond
the contr jLof 4 be engineer yester;
day ai.d rao, away.. ,After running
two miles it jumped the - track arid
toppled over..'; , . j
The t ain consisted of an engine
and fi ve cais, ' which were - beavil
loaded. The " track "was slippery
from the steady rain 'and had a very
perceptible do wn'grade. Soon ' af
ter starting with its burden it bef
came evident that the'engine cjoold
not hold back the cars, which kept
pushing1 it forward at'a' Wrrlbla fitior
mentum. In a7 sftbtfjtfifld the' ru'n
away was making a mile a minutet
The track: waa 1 crooked, a winding
around' tbO curves of the' creek 'bed,
'tfnd evfy 'miotics' the 1 ere w 'expeetf
ed the train would jump ' from the
rails and, hurl' them to destruction1.
VTrees' and rocks that' were" passed in
the mad flight looked like nittirg
shadows. .- 3 7 ' . . : i
i The engine - and roars flew the
track' and' landed wrong eide ; tlpt
Thb9e who eaw the wreck ' are sur
prised' that any one' escaped wfth his
life. , Some 6f the members of thi
crew were' tbrb'wn'a'dist&ta'ce'of VtikTL
ty" feef, and pit a1 tirne "the'y weire so
stunned by the fall that some time
elapsed before they -could realize
what had "happened. It' was a lone
ly epbt'arid'no 'boe'hkd ' wTtjia'gSed
the accidehi. Aa'sopn as they had
pulled themfselves : together those
wbo iwete eMg'htly ixijured beganr to
lopt arbund 1 for as'gistance.' ,,!Two
of their nu'mbtr we're ' suppbiedj to
be j dying v; and ' every v tffort was
made by their less injured' compan
ions to relieve their' sufferings. ' v )
'S'ime' rarjehmerf were finallv : lo
cated who gave tbem their services!
A 1 few minutes later a gasoline
lauheh'was ' a ghted coming; dp the
slough of .Cole - CreKk. This "was
signaled and she 10 k the injured
to Stella, about four miles distant,
with all possible haTte. ' Fortunately-
the steamer Sarah Dixon . bad
just landed at Stella on ber "way
man' were pu t aboard , and Captain
Del Shaver decided to make a re
cord run to this city with his in
jured passengers..' ' ". - .
He'gave orders tp cut out all way
landings and the engineer was told
to open the throttle wide, and run
the steamer to ber full capacity? '
It was-11:48 lastinight when the
Dixon' steamed Trbm Stella.T 'At
Rainier it was considered advisable
to stop and get a physician aboard;
which was done. The run was then
resumed and continued until St.
Helens was reached. .There anoth
er stop. was made to get another
physician, Dr. McLarren boarding
the steamer this time. Again ; the
Dixon proceeded up the river, mak
ing better time than 'she ever did
before. ; When she pulled up along
side the Washington street dock it
was just exactly 6:15 o'clock this
morning, which' is considered a
swift passage for a' freight boat that
rhakes no pretensions of being fleet.
Captain Shaver ia being ; praised
all along the waiter front for i his hu
mane action. 5 By taking the course'
he did he lost business all along the
river, between here and Stella in
the way of freight and 7 passenger
traffic. While passing one point
down the river some one hailed the
boat, wanting to take; passage, but
no attention was paid him. (
Members of the boat crew stated
that it was the general belief down
at Stella that the log cars had been
loaded too heaviry,"which"'waa the
direct cause of the accident. , Had
the wreck occurred a few hundred
feet down the track, it is said that
the men would have been precipi
tated into the slough - and they
Would ' undoubtedly have - been
drowned. Joseph Black is the en
gineer who escaped with slight in
juries. Francis Weist, a cousin of George
Weist, the man seriously injured,
and a part owner -of the ... logging
camp of Weiet & Mowrey. said: -
"Tiieaccident was 'unavoidable.
The logging road is six miles - long,
with a 4 per cent" grade." ; - .
The engineer, Charles Black, bad
only bet n employed two daysl We
ist and Weideman, the two men se
riously injured, were putting in
their, first day as brakemen on the
road. ' Previous to the accident the
brdidary" ldad of logs was three
cars, but on this occasion they start
ed with five cars.
Spokarie. Wash , Nov. '10.
Northern Pacific train No. 2, from
tfee 1 'East, which reached Spokane
early, this moroing, was held up at
Joco, Mont., by three armed high
waymen,, who fifed stx shots at tbe
members of the train crew. ;
The high wavmem -were discovered
orf tbef train by ihe-head brakeman,
J 'E, Rddenhaver; of Spokane. His
attempt to put the men Off the tram
precipitated ihe ihc otibg itid foiled
the plans of the robbers. 7 .
..The train pulled westward imme
diate! v following the shooting, leav
ing the highwaymen behind. , 'The

Apparently the'- three bighay-

train had ben' filarmed and ' that
robbery would be impossible, for
they disappeared and the train
moved forward at once.

eroment lias recognized the de fac
to government of the republic of
Panama. ,
The : instructions forwarded by
Foreign' Minister Dslcasse to ' the
French donsul'at Panama , autbofr
izea-'him-'to have relations with the
new government. The instructions
are substantially the same as those
sent from Washington to ' the unit
ed States consul "at Panamas and
will have the, effect, of giving the
same recognition of the new regime
as the United States has : already
given. . -ii.''.s :!'"7-:
. According to the" strict require
ments of the protocol governing' the
recognition of a new ; sovereignty, a
formal letter must be addressed by
the new government to France and
the other powers - notifying 1 them
that it-is completely established.
The cfficial response to this letter
will constitute' a formal recognition
of the" latter. The formalities Tnay
be carried on by mail later, but the
instructions to the consul are con
sidered as establishing - the position
of the French government as being
similar to that of the United States.
