Tried to wreck a train.
Some ties piled up on the track east of Princeton.
A despatch from Princeton, Ont., says:—A dastardly attempt at train wrecking on the G.T.R. was perpetrated here on Friday night, but, happily, without doing any damage. Some persons placed some wooden cattleguards on the track, just east of the Princeton station.
At the switch a number of ties were piled on the track, and at another point further east a number of large stones and fence rails.
The apparent object was to wreck the midnight express, but a freight train passed east a short time previous and threw the obstructions clear of the track without causing any damage.
