Western Canada. Early this morning locomotive Xo. 702, light, started from this' city for Coleridge to take the Spokane Flyer east to Moose Jaw. On its way down just east of the local yards and near the hill, where serious wrecks have occurred before it collided with the morning passenger train from the west oh the Crow's Nest line. .This -train; -No.. 22, was run- ning two hours late and the col- lision is reported U> have taken place at 8.20 o'clock.
