Wm. Murphy is reported doing well at the city hospital where he is suffering from a fractured skull, received when at work on the N. P. steam shovel. Owing to the breaking of a heavy chain he was thrown against one of the plates and his skull fractured for a distance of four or five inches. His chance for recovery, which were slight, are very good mow, his father says.
