EIGHTY-FIVE MEET DEATH
ON A TRAIN IN TEXAS.
Over 1,000 Bodies at Bolivar Point and But Tew Have Been
New Orleans. U., Sept. 11 The States
this morning received a telegram from
John JL Foe, member of the State Board

stating that eighty-live lives were lost on
the Gulf and Interstate train which left

Mr. Poe was one of the passengers on this
train and fortunately, together with a. few
others, he sought safety In the lighthouse
at Bolivar Point and was saved. The train
reached Bolivar about noon, and all prep
arations were made to run the train on the
ferryboat preparatory to crossing the bay.
The wind blew- so swiftly, however, that
