CAR OF DYNAMITE

the railway station on a small town at
train time, some of them draymen and
depot employes, there on business; a
few passengers, bound for nearby
towns, and many others who had
tome to see the train come in. The
explosion occurred without warning
and the unfortunates had no time to
escape. The explosion was of such
force that it tore a great hole in the
ground where the car had stood and
hurled pieces of the wrecked car and
the platform in all directions. The
town was shaken as if by an earth
quake and the explosions was heard
for a radius of SO miles. Most of the
wreckage fortunately was sent in the
epposite direction from the platform
and depot and to this fact alone may
be laid the small loss of life.
Unusual excitement followed the
explosion, but as quickly as possible
the dead and dying were carried to
nearby houses and cared for. The
telegraph wires were snapped by the
explosion, cutting off communication
by that means with the outside. For
this reason the reporting of the de
tails was delayed. As soon as the
neighboring towns were apprised of
the catastrophe aid was sent it from
half a dozen places.

them for sale in the open market at
the going price, or for the best price
he can get, and turn the net proceeds
over to the hatchery fund. This he
Bas done in the Seufert Bros, case,
and he says he has taken great pains
sot to overstep the provisions of the
troublesome statute. An interesting
feature of the1 newest developments in
the fish war is the fact that Warden
McAllister and F. A. Seufert are old
time friends, and now they are put in
the position of mutually charging each
other with being law breakers and
commissioners of high crimes.
Master Fish Warden McAllister de
clares he will have the Seuferts ar
rested every time he catches them
opertaing their seines or wheels, and
they declare in turn that they will
keep right on fishing just as if noth
ing had happened, and every time Mc
Allister .seizes their fish they will
prefer additional charges of grand
It was reported to Master Fish
Warden McAllister that the Seuferts
began violating the law as soon as
the new statute went into effect which
was on the opening dap of the Fall
season, September 10, but until yes
terday, McAllister had no chance to
make an investigation. He found
Seuferts' men operating seines close
to the Washington shore and was in
formed that the wealthy cannerymen
had also been fishing on the Oregon
side. McAllister telegraphed Govern
or Chamberlain for permission to use
an engine and care of the portage rail
road to make a secret trip to near
where the unlawful fishing was going
n. With the "goods" found on the
Seuferts, McAllister drafted the Sher
iff of Wasco county and two deputies
fnto service, and armed with warrants
notified the Seuferts that they, were
tinder arr t. The cannerymen ap
peared in court, waived preliminary
examination and furnished the neces
sary bonds, last evening. They expect
to hasten the trial of the cases in
