"Billy" Doolittle's Fine Record as
an Engine Driver.
Lifetime Spent on n Ijocomotlre,
Ml lb Only One Serious Acci
dent nml No ninck Marie
Aarnlust lllni.
BIOUX FALLS, 8. D., March 22. In
the employ of railroads since ho was 14
years of age, and forty years in an
engine cab for one line of railroad Is
tho record which has been made by
AVllllam T. Doollttle, a veteran engineer
of Sioux Falls.
'In uddltlon to hold lap the throttle
on a locomotive on tho Chicago, 8L
Paul. Minneapolis & Omaha railroad for
the period of forty years, he also found
time to servo as a member of tho city
council, as mayor of Sioux Falls und
as a member of tho waterworks com
mltslon which Installed the present
municipal waterworks system in Sioux
Hilly" Doollttle. as he Is known to
thousands, was born at Lowdenvllle. O..
uul had barely reached his fourteenth
yea- when he began a three-year's ap
prenticeship In the shops of the rennsyl
vault Central railroad. At 19 he was
running a locomotive for that system.
Many thouionds of miles of rails had
bjiuh under his cab before he was 25,
when he married and came west.
First Trnln Ofer TrnoUs.
In the northwest at that early day
h found a pioneer country with few
railroads nosing their way among small
towns widely scattered among virgin
hllU, valleys and prairie. In his cab on
the front of a Chicago, St. Paul, Minne
apolis fc Omaha train on March 16, 1873.
K- helped lead the way Into a new
vmntry. His first run was between St
.'antes. Minn., and Sioux City. Ia.. and
hW home at that time was In Sioux City
Five years later, when the Omaha built
west from WoUIilngtnn. Minn., he re
vived orders to take out another train.
It was the first paiansrr train to rpn
Into Sioux Falls, at that time an outpost
of clylHzatlpn containing a small num
ber of modest but enthusiastic citizens
There was Joy In the new town on tho
banks of the Big Sioux river the night
that the first passenger train arrived
with "Billy" Doollttle at tho throttle.
Then for a couple of years he returned
to the St. James-Bloux City division, but
finally was persuaded to come back to
the Worthlngton-Sloux Falls run. Since
1SS0 ho has pulled the throttle on locomo
tives that have hauled tens of thou
sands of people In and out of Sioux
Falls, and In his work he has worn out
many a strong steam horse that could
not stand the wear and tear of the years
as well as he.
One Close Call.
During his forty years' experience as
an engineer he had only one serious ac
cident and one near accident, which In
Itself Is n remarkable record. Tho near
accident brought him tho commendation
and thanks of a tralnload of people for
his quick action and steady nerves.
That was on a rainy night when a
bridge- was swept away ten feet In front
of his locomotive on a run through tho
Floyd creek valley, between LcMars and
Sioux City, la.
Itunnlng slowly and leaning out of his
cab window to get what view he could
In the darkness ahead, a lightning flash
suddenly revealed a haystack. The hay
stack was a common enough thing tn
Itself, but not to "Hilly" Doollttle, whon
It appeared only a few feet ahead on his
right-of-way. He snapped on the brakes
and brought his train to a standstill orily
a few feet from the bank of the swollen
and swift running creek, now assuming
all the proportions of a great river
Dismounting from his cab he Investi
gated and found that the railroad bridge
had been carried away by the flood. The
hay stack on the right-of-way was float
ing on the surface of the river and had
momentarily lodged against one of the
bridge piers. Passengers on the train
which was thus miraculously saved from
plunging Into the swollen waters were
loud in their protestations of thanks to
the engineer.
Hut "Billy" was thankful for the good
will of Another, who sent the lightning
flash In time.
The aocldent which came near being
fatal occurred during a blizzard on Feb
ruary U, 190C. three miles west of Worth.-
