Locomotive Foreman Pennyfather, being in Calgary, head machinist McDonald wen tin charga of the crew. From conversation with the men who were there, the Herald lear :cci that the operator at Brocket, tha third station west of Macleod, had orders to hold No. 1443, the extra andVonWaU on the wast bound, was injurad about t.'ic head, tha' tip of his nose being cut off and otMr injuries received. Geo. McKinnon, the fireman on tha other locomotive, received serious injuries to both lag* and was otherwise injurad. Botii are in tha Macleod hospital. Neither is injured fatally and there IS every hope of saving McXinnon's foot. Engineer Allender arid Conductor Chrquette of No. 1443, were badly shaken up but not serjously injured. T'ls locomotives were jammed to- west Spokane freight, at that point I Rather so that it has been impossible to let No. 1430, the regular Crows Nest freight, pass. He failed to give the order and just as No. 1443 w.-;*. leaving Brocket at 5:S0 o'clock, the other train crashed into it, half a mile west of the station. F.

It will take several days to clear away the wreckage completely. The regular Crows Nest passenger train (No. 5) and the Spokane Flyer (No. 7) were held at Brocket until half-past four in the afternoon, when the track was sufficiently cleared to Hew them to pass. On board the flyer were the members of the St. Louis football team, including several medical stiidents, who rendered valuable service in caring for the injured.
