twenty minutes behind schedule, but
slowly. The telegraph wires were
destroyed by the wreck and other
wires were crippled by the, t)ld
weather and if was nearly an hour
before relief could.be caljed.
Two wrecking trains were sum
moned. , une came trom Ottumwa.
but it was not sufficiently powerful to
lift the huge steel cars. Uninjured
, passengers, the Creston fire depart-
inent, summoned from six miles
away, and volunteers from Cromwell
aided the wrecking crew, which by
the use of block and tackle in con
junction with the wrecker succeeded
, in liberating a few of those pinioned
beneath the wreckage. Women, shiv
ering in the cold, aided in the work

One of the steel cars stood on end
in the ditch. Another had over
turned several times in its descent of
the embankment and rested in a bed
of crushed ice in the ditch.
The-majority of the injured were
cut by glass. . A number of them were
thrown through - the windows and
. clear of the falling ears.
A few of the passengers continued
their journey on a later train. Eleven
of the seriously hurt are now in Cres

Six physicians treated all of the In

Wayfarers Prove They '
Bought Their Checks
Robert Hilderbrant and Larry Mor
gan, 1922 Harney street, arrested Jan
uary 28 and booked for investigation,
have been discharged. Hilderbrant
and Morgan had in their possession
more than $100 in travelers' cheques,
which police officers believe were
stolen because of the manner in which
they were filled out. Information
from Denver, however, corroborated
Hildcrbrant's statements that he pur
chased the cheques there.
Central Labor Union
Endorses Boxing Bill
'. Cent Melady'a bill, now ,pending
in the legislature, foi clean 'sport in
Nebraska was unanimously endorsed
by the Central Labor union last evening.
Application of three delegates
elected by a new moving picture oper
ators' union to the Central Labor
union was temporarily refused until
the status of the new union can be
determined. The new union is'
called an electricians' union, but it
was stated the members are to be
operators of moving picture machines
First steps were taken lobking to
ward free admission to the various
unions for members of bartenders'
and brewery workers' unions who
will be thrown out of work May 1.
Many of these, it was stated, have
other trades to which they will want
to return and the unions ot which
they will want to join. Initiation fees
in most cases are $50.
Balks Ed Smith,
- Embargo Buster
Somewhere in the neighborhood of
Boston, or perhaps actually within
the-city limits of Boston, was Ed P.
Smith of Omaha on a mission that
has probably been rendered-entirely
fruitless by the severance of diplo
matic relations with Germany.
' Mr. Smith left Omaha for Boston
Thursday evening, representing the
Omaha Grain exchange and hoping
to influence eastern steamboat lines
to accept cargoes of grain from Oma
ha for shipment abroad. Smith had
planned to do a little embargo-busting
Of his own. (
It is likely' that about the time he
stepped off the train at the Boston
passenger station a Boston newsboy
pushed an extra in his facje bearing
the words, "Diplomatic relation's with
Of course, whethe the newsboy did
this or not, no one in Omaha yet
knows, but Grain exchange men be
lieve Smith must have arrived in Bos
ton just about in time to buy the
first extras that came out on the new
crisis in the international situation,
which will necessarily make thi em
bargo on exports still more rigid for
a time at least. . - . -
"So I suppose Ed will turn around
and take the next train back," said
a grain man. "Oh, Ed may get his
lunch first, maybe, and probably walk
up Bunker Hill and back before train
time, but I bet he will be riding a
Pullman for the Nebraska metropolis
again by night." , .'

vehemently, pointing to Wathen. "He

Wathen, a cripple, is a talented
pianist and a good singer. Busche
says that he sirig and -played his way
into his girl's heart and thus won her
consent to an elopement.
Busche was his own detective in
trailing the young couple. He found
that Wathen had relatives in Chicago
and Seward. He wired Chicago po-.
