Collision on Great  Northern.
Monday evening of last week a
collision occurred on the Great
Northern near the entrance to the
rock tunnel about three mill's from
Morrissey Junction. The work
train which had been employed at
the big slide, was backing up to
Elko for the night and just as they
emerged from the tunnel they met
the express, consisting of three
coaches and u supply ear, Little
damage was done to the express
excepting the engine but three of
the bunk cars on the work train
were completely domolislutl and a
fourth badly shattered. Most of
the men on the train were in the
iKjarding car next to the engine
and thus escaped but quite a number were in the other bunk curs
and of these one man. John Leo,
was instantly killed and nine others
more or less injured, The Inquest
ou the Imdy of John Lee was held
at, Swinton, Friday evening and
the following verdict brought'in.
'John A. Lee. hdxjrer, came to
his death Marcli Uth through a
'oil isi on on tlie (ireut Northern
railway about three miles south of
Swinton. and that the said accident
was caused by a confusion of orders
if officials, owing to the imperfect
system of giving train orders on
this branch, and tlie jury recommended that the telephone system
be abolished and telegraphy substituted."'
immense mass of snow in huge icy
boulders would have extended
across Klk river and dammed it
up. As it is the slide extends half
way ticr.iss at one point and the
railway track was buried in places
50 feot for a distance of 1,200 feet
in all, there being three divisions,
the slide down one ravine having
divided into two parts,''
