"Idaho Daily Statesman" Pocatello, Idaho, Sunday 17 Nov 1901
"Two Men Killed by a Collision of Helper Engine with a Freight-MARTIN COSGROVE AND CHARLES WALLACE DEAD-Fireman H. W. Knox Loses a Leg and Is In a Precarious Condition-Accident Caused By a Mistake in Reading Orders-Peculiar Performance of the Helper Engine After the Smash-"It was my fault entirely" were the words that came from the white, compressed lips, quivering with pain, of brave and dying Engineer Martin Cosgrove as he spoke of the disastrous wreck which occurred on the Short Line yesterday morning about 4 o'clock a mile and a half east of Orchard station. The old adage "that in the midst of life we are in death," never had a truer exemplification, for Thursday night Engineer R. J. Cosgrove, who had charge of engine No. 617 was not feeling well and requested his cousin, Martin, also an engineer to take his run out of Huntington, It was on this run that Martin Cosgrove met his death, and in the terrible wreck, Charles Wallace, head brakeman, was also killed and H. W. Knox so severely injured as now to be hovering between life and death.
HOW ACCIDENT OCCURRED Engineer Cosgrove was in charge of engine No. 617 hauling an east-bound freight under Conductor Davis, and had orders to stop at the siding at Orchard station to let helper engine No. 301 pass returning from a run. Engineer Cosgrove forgot his orders and went on beyond the siding for a mile and a half running at full speed. He recalled his orders and started to reverse the lever as the collision occurred. The helper engine in charge of Engineer Eph McDowell and Fireman Frank Onan had no thought of danger, until they heart the rumbling of the approaching train, and both jumped just as the collision occurred, as McDowell grasped the lever to reverse, which was thrown back against him as he jumped. Neither McDowell nor Onan were injured beyond slight bruises. They state, and the statement is confirmed, that the headlight of the freight engine was not burning. It had gone out a few miles beyond Nampa.
NO TIME TO JUMP
Engineer Cosgrove, his fireman, Knox and Head Brakeman, Wallace, who was riding in the freight engine, had no time to jump, and the engine was frightfully wrecked, the boiler being upon one side of the track and the tender upon the other, the engine being practically overturned. Horribly mangled beneath the engine, with both legs cut off was found the body of Wallace. Cosgrove and Knox were both caught beneath the wreckage, but managed to extricate themselves. Knox in his dreadful pain, managed to crawl 50 feet to the north side of the track, while his dismembered leg, which was torn off at the knee was found on the south side. Engineer Cosgrove was so caught in the wreck that the escaping steam literally roasted him.
The freight engine, as stated, was almost completely demolished, while eight or 10 of the freight cars were piled in a heap, making one of the worst wrecks of the character that has occurred on the Short Line for a long time. The helper engine, besides damage to the cab, was hardly damaged at all, and did not leave the track, but with the fact that Engineer McDonald had started to reverse the lever, it jumped forward and ran wild for a distance of eight miles, before coming to a stand-still.
HELP SENT FORWARD
Immediately after the accident Conductor Davis hastened with all speed to Orchard station and telegraphed the news to Nampa, and the Owl train, which leaves Boise at 3:25, upon its arrival at Nampa, was sent at once to the scene, carrying Drs. Murray and Kohler of Nampa, who had been at once aroused from their beds.
HIS BODY UNDER ENGINE
Head Brakeman Wallace of the freight was still under the wreckage. It could be seen that both his legs had been cut off near his hips and that he was dead. It was impossible to remove his body until the wrecking crew arrived. Wallace's body had been roasted frightfully. His remains were lying at a point near the boiler, where the scalding steam had enveloped him as in a furnace. As soon as possible Cosgrove and Knox were placed on the train to be brought to Boise. The train arrived here with them at 8:55. Dr. Murray of Nampa came in with the injured men, who were taken to St. Alphonsus' hospital. Dr. McCalla, the Short Line surgeon at this place, was summoned and he at once called Dr. Collister to assist him. Later Dr. Springer and Dr. Bowere were also summoned. On the road to Boise Cosgrove and Knox told their stories between gasps Cosgrove admitted he had misread his orders, as stated in the foregoing, and that he had discovered his error too late. Knox said he crawled out of the wreckage into the sagebrush, where he remained some time before being found.
DIED AT HOSPITAL
Shortly after arrival at the hospital Cosgrove died of his injuries. His death was due to the awful scalding he had received, he having been enveloped in the escaping steam from head to foot and great strips of skin and flesh had peeled off of him.
KNOX RESTING EASILY
Fireman Knox has withstood the shock of his leg being torn off with remarkable grit and fortitude. The physicians in charge amputated the stump a few inches above the knee. At a late hour last night he was sleeping. He is very weak and has lost a great deal of blood.
SOMETHING OF THE MEN
Martin Cosgrove was 26 years of age and was a native of Maryland, his widowed mother living at Western Port, that state. His father was an engineer, and he has a brother who is now an engineer on the Baltimore & Ohio. He came to Idaho in 1893 and had been employed on the Short Line ever since. He has no relatives in this state, excepting, as stated, his cousin, Engineer R. J. Cosgrove. He was an intimate friend, however, of D. J. Malone, Oregon Short Line mechanic, at Pocatello, who knew his family in the east and who arrives last evening to aid in the funeral arrangements. Mr. Cosgrove was a member of the B. of L. E. of Pocatello division No. 228, and the body will be shipped to his old home by his fellow members and will be accompanied by Engineers Jack Hiler, Frank Dryden and R. J. Cosgrove. Charles Wallace was about 38 years of age and has a wife and child and widower sister at Ogden. His remains were brought to this city last night and will be shipped to Ogden, by the order of the B. of R. T. of which he was a member. Mr. Wallace was an old-time railroad man, having been employed on the Utah & Northern some 20 years ago. Fireman Knox is a new man at railroading, having been employed on the Short Line, his first experience, for a matter of three of four months only. His parents live at Keokuk, Iowa."

"Zilhman Man Seriously Shot Christmas Afternoon-Doctors Hold Little Hope For His Life-Harry Shriver Held In Jail Here Charged With Attempt To Murder Aloysius Cullen-Abdomen Is Torn Away By Charge-Shot Down Without Provocation As He Seeks To Quiet Liquor-Crazed Man-Crazed by drink, Harry Shriver, 30, divorced, a miner, shot and probably fatally wounded Aloysius Cullen, 30, married, another miner, and neighbor in Zilhman, a mining village between Frostburg and Mt. Savage, about 5:30 o'clock last evening, with a shotgun. The charge tore a hole in Cullen's lower abdomen above the hip. The shooting was declared to be without provocation. Condition Is Critical Cullen was taken to Miner's Hospital, where he was operated on by Dr. W. O. McLane, Jr., of Frostburg, and Dr. Frank M. Wilson, of Cumberland. His condition was reported as critical today. Shriver was arrested and placed in jail. According to investigation by the authorities, Shriver had been drinking during the afternoon and threatened to kill several people, firing at one group at his boarding house who fled, the charge tearing a hole in the wall of the kitchen. A loaded revolver had been previously taken away from him by a friend. Two belts of shells were taken from him when placed under arrest. Shriver boarded with Mrs. Emma Vizzi, Green Row, Zilhman. It appears that Charles Harden, Earl Harden and Wonford Sween came to the home to see Alfred Vizzi, son of Mrs. Emma Vizzi. Shriver, who was drinking and disorderly, was urged by Mrs., Vizzi to go to his room and behave himself. This was resented by Shriver. He went upstairs to his room and closed the door. When asked to behave himself by the group in the home, Shriver is said to have left the house but later returned with the shotgun, and those present seeing him armed, ran out. Shriver blasted away as several of them ran out the door, the charge tearing a hole in the wall near the kitchen door. Threatened To Kill Charles and Earl Harden, brothers, had come from Morantown in their automobile and left the machine standing outside the Vizzi home in the road. Shriver is said to have come out in the yard, and with an oath dared any of them to get in the machine and sit behind the steering wheel, declaring he would kill them. Shriver, it appears, had raised the hood and jerked out the distributor, disabling the car. At this juncture, Aloysius Cullen, living on the same row in Zilhman, came up to see what the trouble was, accompanied by Edgar Shumaker and Ellis Lockhart, young men. They were on the road, when Shriver, holding his weapon, repeated the threat to kill, it was alleged, that he would "kill the first man that got into the machine." Cullen, who knew him well, sought to humor him, by declaring he (Cullen) could not drive a car. This led to an exchange of words, when Shriver, it is declared, suddenly raised the weapon and fired point blank at Cullen, The charge tore his stomach open, and he collapsed, bleeding, in the roadway, his intestines being perforated and torn, the wad from the gun entering them. Ellis Lockhart, Andrew Lennox, Harland Porter, and Harry Lennox, who came up, put Cullen in a machine and drove him to the hospital. Another Narrowly Escapes It is declared that previous to wounding Cullen, …gun in the stomach of Armel Sween, and threatened to kill him, but Sween knocked the gun barrel away with his hand and ran around the house. Sheriff Hugh A. Hotchkiss, with County Investigator, Terrence J. Boyle, and State Officers Park and LaMotte went to Zilhman and arrested Shriver found at the Vizzi home. A Winchester repeating rifle and a single shot shotgun with two belts of loaded shells were taken from him. A loaded revolver had been taken away from Shriver earlier in the day by Charles Harden, Jr. Shriver Angry At Vizzi According to information given officers, Shriver had intended to shoot young Vizzi because Vizzi objected to attentions paid by Shriver to his mother. Cullen was acting in the capacity of peacemaker when he was shot. Cullen is a son of Timothy C. Cullen, Mill street, Frostburg. His wife was Miss Viola Hamilton. He is a brother of Timothy A. Cullen, past commander of Farrady Post No. 24, American Legion, and Bryan, Patrick and John Cullen, all of Frostburg.
