Associated Tress Dispatches,
Reading, Pa., Sept. 1!). —One of the
worst wrecks ever known in this section
occurred tonight on tlie Reading rail
road, seventeen miles from here. Near
Shoemakersville there is a curve where
the railroad is about eighteen or twenty
feet higher than the Schuylkill river.
Here shortly before 0 o'clock a freight
train ran into a coal train, throwing sev
eral cars'onto the opposite track. Before
the track hands had time to warn any
approaching train of danger, the Potts
ville express, carrying about one hun
dred and fifty passengers, came around
the curve at the rate of forty miles an
hour and ran into the wrecked coal cars.
The engine went down the embank
ment, followed by the entire train with
its human freight.
A Scene of Horror.
The scene was one of great horror.
The cries of the imprisoned passengers
were heartrending. Some of the pas
sengers managed to crawl out of then
prison and arouse the neighborhood.
Word was telegraphed to this city and
surgeons and a force of 300 workmen
were taken to the spot. The work was
slow and the dying were taken out with
great difficulty. Up to 1 o'clock tonight
six dead and thirty wounded had been
taken out. Of the latter some were
brought to this city ami others taken to
the miners' hospital at Ashland.

At the Kottom of the River.
Tlie wrecked train is still lying at the
bottom of the river. The exact number
on the passenger is not known, and a
reporter, who is still on the ground,
telephones that he believes that there
are still twenty-rive or more bodies
underneath the wreck, or who were
carried away by the current.
Later, 11:30 p. m.—The Associated
Press agent has just had direct com
munication with the representative at
the wreck, who says conservative esti
mates place the numberof killed at forty
to fifty. It is almost impossible to esti
mate the exact number, and the full
horror of the situation will nut be known
until a Inter hour. At 11 o'clock Mail
Agent (ireenawald's body was taken out,
followed by the horribly mangled bodies
oi two Mahoney City firemen on their
way home from Chester.
Thirteen Bodies Recovered.
At midnight ■ thirteen bodies have
been recovered. The names of those
known have already been given. Five
bodies are exposed to view in the wreck,
pinned under the timbers.
A Passenger's Story.
One of the passengers who escaped
with slight injuries, said to the Asso
ciated Press reporter at midnight:
"When the crash came, I was hurled
from my seat. One end of the car
splashed into the river andl was thrown
against the side of the car with a force
that partially stunned me. I quickly re
covered myself and managed to climb
upon the seats on that side
of the car which lay against the em
bankment. I was a prisoner in tbe car
and while I was nursing my sprained
ankle and a wrist out oi joint, I realized
I was in a scene of veritable horror.
Around and about me were human be
ings struggling in the water, screaming
with fright, and some almost dragged
me back into the water again. A few
saved themselves as I did, and the re
mainder struggled in the water and
then quietly sank out of sight."
Professor Mitchell, of Lehigh Univer
. sitv, at Bethlehem, is among the injured
at Reading hospital. Lawrence Barnes,
of Philadelphia, had his arm dislocated.
The body of John L. Miller, of Cresona,
was taken out at midnight.
At three o'clock this morning 300 men
are still at work, but making slow prog
ress. Fifteen bodies were taken out.
None of the bodies have been taken from
tlie scene of the disaster.
John McDonough and William John
son, of Shenandoah, and John Strauss,
of Schuylkill Haven, are among the lat
est injured reported. It is believed that
there are still twenty or more bodies be
neath the wreck. Nothing definite can
be known until the wreck has been
raised, which will probably be tomor

STRIKERS IN THE SOUP.

Spokane Falls, Sept. 10.—A general
strike of all the union carpenters in the

The Ludicrous Voyage of the Ertogroul
Most Disastrously Ended—Old
Associated Press Dispatches. I •
London, Sept. 10. —Advices from
Hiogo state that the Turkish man-of
war Ertogroul foundered at sea, and five
hundred of her crew were drowned.
The Ertogroul was a wooden frigate,
of 2334 tons, and mounted forty-one
guns of small calibre. She was built in
1863. Osman Pasha and Aii Pasha, en
voys of the sultan to the emperor of
Japan, are among the drowned.
Osman Pasha, whose victory over
the Russians at Plevna gave him high
rank[as afightinggeneral, bad been on an
official visit to Japan, having been in
trusted with a special mission from the
Sultan to the Mikado.
The progress of the vessel
since she left Constantinople
for the last, many months ago, has been
most ludicrous. Leaving Turkey short
of money, it was understood that sup
plies were to be sent her to the ports at
which she was to coal, with
the result that her sojourn
in those countries was indefinitely
prolonged, as the officers at home were
unable to keep their promises. In this
way she lost some of her crew,
and her officers were many times
on the verge of rebellion, induced by
starvation ; while the governors of the
cities visited, refused to remit harbor
dues and grant other privileges of right
due her as a Turkish man-of-war, on the
grounds that she was not sailing
in that character. There was not
powder enough on board to enable her
crew to fire the regulation salutes. Af
ter many adventures, only worthy an
opera bouffe navy, the Ertzogroul final

Seattle, Wash., Sept. 19.—About one
thousand people witnessed a ten-round
contest between George Laßlanche, the
Marine, and Jack Burke, of Seattle, to
night. Rounds one, two and three were
tame, Laßlanche doing the rushing and
Burke keeping away. In the fourth
round, the Marine rushed Burke savage
ly and forced the fighting.
The Marine landed a terrific
right-hander on Burkes face, sending
him to grass. In the sixth round the
Marine got in twice on Burkes wind,
and received light blows in the face in
return. In the seventh and eighth
rounds Burke kept away from the Ma
rine, who followed him around the ring.
Near the close of the eighth the Marine
got in body blows with his right, and
then followed some heavy hitting
with honors even. In the ninth
round the Marine rushed Burke from
the start, hitting him terrific blows in
the face, right and left, sending him at
last through the ropes with a right
hander. Burke came up to the scratch
groggy, and was knocked down again in
the same manner. He came up with
