A car load of live fish, consigned to the California Fish Commission at San Francisco, to stock the streams of the State, was wrecked in Elkhorn River, twenty miles west of Omaha, and the entire car of forty thousand trout, lobsters, eel, etc., emptied into the stream. It is said to be the best stocked stream in Nebraska at present. The cause of the accident was the wash-out of the bridge of the Union Pacific Railroad.
