nearly all the fatalities were by drowning.
The worstof theh)Jur0d haveiiothing more

they will all recover.
The accident seemso have been due to
a strange conjunctiougif causes. A north
cast storm piled the waters into the Long
Itland Sound and XetV York bay, and at
Saturday's midnight t)Igh tide they were
pushed up the Hudson as through a funnel.
Unusually high water was recorded all
along the river. A loiig drought left the
roadbed dry and the tvatcr weakened it
Thc river at this point is deep dose to

weak spot- and the tram-shot into the river.
The yielding water made little shock,
hence the small injured list. The result
was akin to a stcamboap accident, the
passengers were either drowned or es
caped whole. That Qeaths may follow
from wetting, cold anil exposure Is possi
ble. Fully 1 00 men wereat work today repair

of the railroad. and C:trB."vniiaiL, Chap,
man, of the Merrltt & Chapman -Wreaking
Company, who were intllarge of tJie'men,
did not sleep a wink IjsL night.
Robert Wagner, of th Wagner Sleeping
Car Company, was on hand to see that
everything which was found In the cars be
longing to passengers was properly la
beled and kept for the owners. He also
had not slept any. He said early this
morning that he had already found about
$400 iu money, four gold watches, two dia
mond studs, one pearl necktie scarf pin,
two gold monogram pins and a quantity of
clothing. A e each article of value was
found it was labeled with the number or
the berth where it was picked up, and in
other ways was so marked that the owner
would be able to identity it easily.
There were so many curiosity seekers at
the scene of the accident today that ropei
had to bo stretched Xo keep the crowd
far enough away to give the workmen a
chance to get at the cars. Supt McCoy, In
his prcllnrinary report to the railroad com
pany today, described the train as the But
falo and New York special train No. 4G,
consisting ol an engine and nine cars. The
train left Alt any at 3:15 Sunday morning;
and was due in New York at 7:30 o'clock
that morning. It passed Garrison on time,
at 5:37 o'clock, and av a point oue and a
half miles south, where the track is with
in three or Tour yards of the river, the
engine and all but the rear cars pinged
Into the river.
The accident was caused by tlie track
having been undermined by the two days
unusually high tide. Within less, than an
hour another fast train had passed over
the same place on the same track That
train was the New York and Boston ex
press. No one en thaltraiu had noticed
anything ususual about the stability of
the track. In the eiighie of the ill-fated
train were John Foylej an engineer of
experience: .Tames.- Thompson, a trusted
fireman, and probably A. J. McKay, the
stenographer of General Superintendent
Van Etten, who was lac seen at- Albany in
the cab with the engineer. No trainmen
were seriously hurt' except the engineer
and fireman, who weiifc down with the
engine.' Some of tlie porters and brakemen
were slightly bruised
Itobcrt Wagner, in his'prellminary report
to his company today, jyave the names of
the six sleepers and the. places they were
taken on by the train as'follows: Hern.es,
taken on at Niagara Fulls; Niobe, at To

whichslecperswentluto the water and the

Thclastthrce remalned.upon the track, and
in them were carried to New York the occu
pants of the other-threfc sleepers, as the
passengers were rescued from the half
submerged cars. It was Mr. Wagner's
boast, up to an early hour this morning,
that not a sleeper passenger had been
killed. The Wagner conductor, as the per
sons were pulled outpr the sleepers by the
porters andothertraijupen.liad checked off
each one's berth on hjs. (llagram anil in that

bodies. He did not see how anybody could
be In a siet-per unaccounted for unless pos
sibly it was some one who was riding on a
Sunt. McCoy, in speaking today of the
cause of the accident, said: "It is almost
beyond comprehension to try to under
stand how the rock gotoutfrom wider that
track. Not only Is ou r system of trackwalk
lng eirrled on here with extra precaution,
but only last Thursday the special inspe-.-tlou
train passed over the place and no
one en board noticed anything wumg.
It was well-ballasted and the foundation
was almost solid rock. It looks as though
the earth had Just opened up and swal
lowed the track and train. The probabil
ities are, thoughth.it the unusually high
tide in thi rivet, -for two day.- had soft
ened the bank."
While the divers of the Merrltt & Chap
man Wrecking Company and the railroad
company were at work trying to raise the
engine and cars, gangs or men were em
ployed in shirting the two railroad tracks.
There are two tracks at the place of the
accident. The one nearest to the bluff
was not affected by the washout. At least
fifty reet of the roadbed ot the traek
nearest the river va caved In, and formany
yards leading up to that hole the ties had
been knocked away by the train.
The railroad company had three wrecking
crews at work. They aggregated ninety
men. The water wrecking crew contained
twenty men. Theie was a derrick vessel
and alw a flat scow big enough to held
several sleeping cars. There werefivedivers
Coroner William AVood, of Putnam county,
who last night went with the morgue cat?
to Cold Spring to deposit the sixteen deads
bodies with the undertaker, came to the
wreck again today to see whether or not
any more dead bodies had been discovered.
W. D. Otis, general roadmaster of the New
Yoik Central, arrived at the accident
early thi morning on a special train from
Mr. Otis said: ''Until the engine has
been raised and examined, it will he im
possible to tell exactly what caused the
accident. If a broken axle Is discovered
It will l,e easy to account for the manner
iu which the ground Is torn up. If a broken
axle should let down a forty-ton engine
going at the late of forty miles an hour,
with nine heavy cars behind It, the mo
mentum would be enough to plow up a
hole as large as this one. Whatever oc
curred must have occurred suddenly."
Mr. Otis was not inclined to believe that
any one had tampered wlth'tlnrtracks by
means of explosives. Nevertheless, W. A.
Humphrey, chief detective of the Vander
bilt system, was on the ground early this
morning with nine men. Their main work
seemed to be in assisting the Wagner peo
ple to recover the valuables from the
s'eeplug cars, but two of the detectives
were scouring the vicinity of the wreck for
some clew as to the use or explosives.
Work on the tracks was somewhat ham
pered bj a heavy rainfall, which began at
S o'clock this morning. But the rain did
not interfcic with the divers. The first car
to be pulled up out of the water was the
Glen Alpine. The Merritt and Chapman
Wrecking Company's derrick raised it
up and put it in the derrick float early this
morning. For several hours afterward
men were engaged in making a thorough
search. As predicted by the diver who
had examined the sleepers, no dead bodies
were found, but many additional articles
of value were saved.
After the Glen Alpine had been safely
landed ou the deck of the floitlng dec
rick, sonic ot the men were allowed to
take a snooze for an hour or two. The su
perintendent's observation engine was sent
toPeck.sklIl,nine miles away, for coffeeand
provisions, and, after a hasty nicakfast,
work was resumed. The first work of im
