WAIPAWA, May 13.
An accident occurred near here on the railway line on Saturday, when the engine and tender of the train from Napier to Woodville were derailed through two horses getting on the line. The engine went over a small embankment. The driver and stoker were both much shaken and bruised, and the wonder is that both were not killed. The train from VNoodville to Napier connects with the train from Napier to Waipukurau. The transfer of the mails and passengers caused a delay exceeding four hours.
