Swift, MT Train Wreck, Aug 1906
A BARBER KILLED
CHARLES L. SHULTZ WAS A VICTIM OF A RAILROAD WRECK IN MONTANA.
Had Worked In This City in the Dudley Shop, but Nothing Was Ever Known Here of His Relatives Whom the Montana Authorities Are Trying to Locate-Identified by Telegraph Operator.
CHARLES L. SHULTZ, a barber who at one time was employed in various Grand Forks and East Grand Forks shops, his last work here being done in the Dudley shop, was killed in a Great Northern wreck at Swift, Mont., Sunday noon. His remains were taken to Great Falls, and efforts are being made to locate his relatives. He was identified there by DAVID PICKENS, for a number of years the Herald's Associated Press operator, who is now employed at Great Falls.
Inquiries of MR. DUDLEY and others last night failed to throw any light on the whereabouts of SHULTZ's relatives, and as far as known he made no confidants while here. He came here from Eveleth, Minn., and from here went to St. Louis. A St. Paul dispatch says of the wreck:
A report, which reached the Great Northern headquarters at noon yesterday, says the east bound mixed train was derailed at Swift, Mont., early last evening, overturning the combination passenger coach.
FRANK E. PREWITT and CHARLES SCHULTZ, of Armington, Mont., and Brakeman BROWN were killed.
Eight or ten passengers were slightly bruised.
The reason for the derailment is not given and is unexplained as the train was moving about fifteen miles an hour.
