Myers & Rancher, MT Train Wreck, Aug 1905

FOUR KILLED IN WRECK.

Northern Pacific Freight Train Wrecked in Montana.

Helena, Mont. --- A special from Forsyth says four people are dead and two seriously injured as a result of an east-bound Northern Pacific freight wreck between Myers and Rancher, thirty miles west of Forsyth. High water had carried away a small concrete bridge and the freight in charge of Engineer JAMES WILSON and Conductor PETER EMGE plunged into the ditch.

The Dead:
JAMES WILSON, engineer, Forsyth;
EDWARD LUCIFER, fireman, Forsyth;
TWO UNKNOWN TRAMPS.

Injured:
JOHN CAMPBELL, brakeman, of Forsyth;
ONE UNKNOWN TRAMP.

The bodies of the killed have not been recovered from the wreckage. The freight had orders to run from Rancher to Myers to meet the westbound passenger train. Luckily the freight struck the washout before the passenger, or there would have been terrible loss of life. The passenger was flagged a short distance from the wreck. The company is making heroic efforts to clear the track.
