Nick Kinsella, an employee of the Potlatch Lumber company at Potlatch, was instantly killed Tuesday night [April 25] by a log from a loaded car falling on him. The accident happened at about 9 o'clock. Kinsella had broken the chain so that the logs might be dumped into the river, he and his helper, a man by name of Kinlon, standing by the side of the train as they worked. One of the logs slipped and fell from the load, striking Kinsella and crushing him to the ground, and just grazing Kinlon as it fell.

Kinsella was about 45 years of age and leaves a wife and several small children. It is understood that he did not carry any life insurance. He had been employed by the Potlatch Lumber company continuously since the big plant was put in operation, and was highly regarded both by his employers and by the community.
