St. Lons, Ma, May 21. Tho West-
bound train on tho St, Ixiuis & San Fran
cisco Iiailrimd, which left St, lxuils last
night at 8:15 o'chx-k, was wrecked at a
point threo miles west of Sullivan, Ma,
which place is sixty-eight utiles west of
St. Iiuis. Not a passenger escaped tin-
hint, aud foity-flvo are known tobOBcii-
ously injured, though uo deaths are yet
reportod. Tlio train was running at a
high rate of speed, when suddenly, and
without warning, thu truck gave way and
tho locomotive, baggago car and five
coaches went over tho embankment. Tho
train meu aud thoso only slightly injured
at once act to work lo prevent the addi
tional horror of fire, in which they suc
ceeded, and then turned their attention to
the mora unfortunately injured, and in a
very short time forty-five passengers, all
badly hurt, were released from tho debris.
A tcniMrary hospital was Improvised at
Sullivan and tho most seriously injured
wore btken there, while others were
brought lo St. l)iiis on the relief train,
which was huryod to the scouo of the dis
aster. Tho wounded are under the care
nf l'r. Mclntyre, chief surguon ol tho
It wss 11.23 o'clock p.m. when the ac
cident occurred. The trniu was traveling
nt a high rate ol siccd, and most of iho
passengers bad already gone to sleep,
whilo ihe few remaining awakowere aUmt
In do so. There Is a curve in tho road
alsmt three miles west of Sullivan, and
when this point wss reached a sudden
jolting and Jar was felt nil over Iho tiaiu.
F. very body fell il, and the coplo iu iho
rear cars could hear thu forward roaches
raiding and rumbling over thn ties an I
tho crushing noises id cars U'ing demol
ished. A creek is cnnMcd by thu road nt
that point and there is a sleep embank
ment thirty feet high. Most id the pas
sengers thought thn train was going
through a bridge and a bi lmg of
lloltllOll Cllll.l Kll THKIU HMIOII.
In an ItlHtant all the coaches, except the
two sleeping cars, had been thrown from
thu lVoplo were thrown about in
nil dues ffohs, and aomo of them were
tlufian boul Ihe coaches and down Ibe
embankiiieiil. Duo luiiii, Waller hat lit
son, who travels for Iho W'cntinghoo' nir
hnike, was thrown right out of a window
on Hie npiMisihi side of tho roach from
which ho wss sitting and sent lolliiigdonu
Ihe einUiiikioent '.o (Im edge ol the creek.
His h-cl were in the wuter. Another pas
senger ill the Siiinii coach was lowed fioiu
the rear cud of Ihe cut to Iho forward end,
sud in fai I men, women and children
were throw n alsnil pmniix-uoiisly.
Ihe train prop.-r wis made up of a mail
car, ail n pi ess car, a bai.'n.ige car, a
smoker, a Indies' coach, a reclining chair
car and two Pullman sliiuMrs. Hack of
Ulead bIismnms wire hitched live empty

Kosd, wlilcll had Invii pickml lili at souiit
way sliilioli. 'I hu front truck of thn lirst
alis'N'r jumiM' I Ihe track, but thn rest of
the car remained on, and thn rear sKtim r
and empty coaclnsi behind it nevi-r h it
the track, f-ortunatcly, there were no
tltcs iu anv of Iho cars, and thu loll extin
guished Ibe hghls Imiiniliately. Other
wise, a coiillagralion would have Is-en
rinfsed and there is no telling how many
lives might have ls.-cu lost, as II was,
most of Ihe forward cars were
ismirii imio sMiTiiriirrvs
and Ihe debris throw n on both sides of the
Irsrk. It was Ihu worst wreck Hint has
occurred In this at-ciiou lor a long tuno.
Tho explanation given of It by Iho train
men to passengers was that the spikes and
llili plaice had lscn removed from the rail
at thn curve, thus leaving thn rail Idom on
the ties, Iho Im ward portion ol Ihu loco
motive paused the plain all right, but tint
tender jiinM'd the Irai k and was thrown
sirlof Iho way down an embniikiiieul. Il
would probably have goiio Iho en
tire distance had not Ihe forward
i lid held It up. Who removed tho
spikes and plate Is not known, but
the supposition is tho work was done
by the luiiii rohls-M who wanted to hold
up the train. Mill, no rubbers put iu an
npiH-arauci'. and if the accident was caused
by Ihem. they must havo either weakened
in their purpixo or have thrown
thu wrong Irani and ' Wi re not pre
pared to do their work at that tuno.
Ilm road officials claim it is a clear
case of tisili wrecking. I hi thu
line tram was a largo bo-lv ot physicians
n turning from r-piiugllold, where Ihu
Male Medical Coiivenlloii Is being held,
and they also rendered Vuliiabln assiidanco
in raring for Iho Injured. Among tha
