GAUSED BY A SFREAD RAIL  BraaiaA.'.. .%������.������' Ti' ?jt+a  Tuesday, September 15���������This morning at about 11 o'clock an ore trn'n consisting 19 loaded ore cars and a caboose  ran off the track in the . ock cut above  trestle No. 91 A.  A spread rail was the pause of the  wreck. The first four cars ran over the  spread in safety, but as the fifth crossed this rail spread enough t������ allow the  car to jump the track. Ten cars ran  off before the train, which was moving  rapidly, could be stopped.  The rail on the outside of the curve  turned on its side for the entire length  of the wreck, as the ties were decayed  enough to alio^ the spikes to pull up.  The locomotive took tha cars that  stayad on the track on the Boundary  Falls side of the wreck to the smelter,  but they may have to shut down for  lack cf ore.  11 may be the work of several days, to  repa ir th e dh mage. Mo~ t of th^wrecked cars are batly broken, but; a few  will not need rspatrs. Two cars turned half over, and the track i-ploughed  up badly.    No one was injured;  Wreck w^rkAnish^ad.
