A fatal accident occurred at Portales yesterday in which waas lost the life of Mr Holiday,chief engineer for the Fairbanks Morse Engine company. Mr Holiday was superintending the installation of the immense irrigation and pumping plant at Portales and the accident occurred at the power house.
A chain broke letting an immense flywheel fall on the engineer.Death was instantaneous.An assistant named Singleton was injured at the same time but not seriously. Mr Holiday's body is being prepared for shipment to his home in Beloit Michigan(I think it should be Wisconsin)
