Two Wisconsin people were in the street car wreck at Butte, Mont. Last Sunday night. One was killed while the other lies dangerously hurt at a hospital.

Joseph T. Ryan of Watertown was instantly killed when a freight train backed into a street car filled with Sunday excursionists, and Miss Gussie Huff of Abbotsford is dangerously hurt but has a fighting chance. She was pinned under a freight car for an hour before being extricated. Her collar, breast and jaw bones and five ribs are broken and one of her ears was torn off.
