W.L. Prillaman, section foreman at Union Junction was killed by an O.W.R.& N. helping engine late last week. The engine was backing down the track as Prillaman climbed through the cars on a siding and stepped on the track before it.
Death was practically instantaneous. Prillaman is survived by the widow and several children. He was a member of the La Grande lodge of Elks and was an old resident of this district.
