Sixty Persons Killed tn Railroad Collision.
Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 24.-Run
ning on a roadbed iu a supposedly nigh
condition of maintenance and having
about them every safeguard known ti?
modern railroading, two trains on the
Southern railway, carrying heavy lists
of passengers, came together *iu u
frightful bead-end collision uear Hod
ges, Teun., to-day sending 51 people
to death and injuring- 123, several of
whom wilt probtu iy die. This appall
ing loss of life and maiming ot th?
living resulted apparently troni the
disregarding of orders given to the
two trains to meet at a statiou whicl
has for a long time been their regular
meeting point. The claim of failure
to 6co either tho statiou or signals
could not bo set up by the engineer of
the westbound train we*e he alive to
entera plea of defense, as the accident
happened in brond day light aud, ac
cording to tho best information obtain
able, ho had the orders in a little frame
in frout of him as his monster of iron
and steel rushed by New Market.
Soon after he came upou an eastbound
train making for New Market in com
pliance with instructions to meet the
westbound train, which carried the
sleepers from the east for Knoxville,
Chattanooga and other southern
The possibility exists that the ill
fated engineer may have been asleep
or that doath had suddenly taken tho
sight from his eyes before New Market
was reached. Edt nothing is known
save that tts orders were not obeyed.
The trains were- on time and not mak
ing over 35 miles an hoar, yet the im
pact as they rounded a curve and came
suddenly upon each other was fright
ful. Both engines and the major por
tion!- of both trains were demolished.
Why the orders were disregarded or
misinterpreted probably will never be
known, as the engineers of the two
trains were crushed, their bodies re
maining for hours under the wreckage
of the monster locomotives which but;
a short time before had leaped forward
at the touch of their strong hands upon
Some of the bodies have not been
recovered, and many remain aniden ti
Gaffney, September 25.- A telegram
was received here yesterday announc
ing the death of Mr. Lee Hill, at Jel
lico, Tenn., who was killed in an ex
plosion in a powder mill. The corpse
was expected here lost night, but in
stead a telegram was received, stating
that the corpse, accompauied by Mr.
Scott Hill, his father, Lee Hilra wife
and four children and a single sister,
were on the ill-fated Southern train,
which was wrecked yesterday, and that
all the parties were killed. The corpses
of all seven of the family are expected
to arrive this evening or to morrow
Asheville, N. C., Sept. 20.-Conduc
tor Caldwell, who was in charge of
train No. 15 of the Southern Railway,
which crashed into train No. 12 near
New Market, Tenn., on the Southern
Railway Saturday morning, is a raving
maniao to-night. This is the staitiing
information which comes over the
wires from Knoxville.
The most sensational denouement
of the tragedy is that Conductor Cald
well, who received the train orders,
which would have saved the collision,
neglected to give them to Engineer
Kane. Kane was killed and Caldwell
escaped. These orders stated that the
two trains were to pass at New Mar
ket, but they were not obeyed, and it
is said now that Caldwell allowed them
to slip his memory, fa some of the
earlier reports it was said that the
fault was due to Engineer Kane,
although the statement to-night shows
that Caldwell was to blame, and stag
gering under the thoughtof his fright
ful error, he has lost his mind.
There were~?? other deaths to-day,
the total list of the dead being 02.
The physicians are hopeful that all
of the injured will be saved. Twelve
funerals of wreck victims took place
in Knoxville this afternoon.
