A three-car train packed from door
to door with returning beach visitors
crashed into a standinp three-car train
while running at a high rate of speed.
There were no lights in the last
coach of the standing train and the
I motorman of the speeding train had
lonly the warning of a few seconds
that elapsed In rounding the curve
until bis headlight flashed on the
rear of the coach ahead.
Car No. 887, the first of the movinc
train, struck the stalled train and
plunged Into the last coach, telecop
inc it and smashing Itself by the im
pact. Men. women and children who had
uecn sianning in tne aisles wore Jam

the brunt of the collision Those sit

force of the collision Jammed the

Darkness Adds to Horror
Darkness added to the horror of
the situation, and delayed the work
of rescue in which those slightlv hurt
or unscathed lent assistance. It was
two hours before the army of res
cuers completed the task of extri
cating the bodies ..f the dead and the
broken bodies of the maimed.
Whether or not the conductor of
the stalled train had sent a man back
on the curve to flag the approaching
train could not be learned tonltrln
Officials of the Pacific Electric de
clined (. make any statement fixing
the blame for the disaster. It was
said however, that the moteorman
of the train which was the author of
the rriflc crash, disappeared soon
after the collision
Three trains of three coaches each
were stalled on the Incoming track,
owing to a broken trolley, but only
the last coach on the long line is
said to haw been dark.
The scene of the collision was in a
deep cut which swings Into a curve
westward Members of one of the
train crews said that a man had been
sent back to flag each train after the
break In the trolley wire at the Junc
tion of the Yenice and Sherman lines
A man who stood on the front plat

conscious by the shock, but rolled off
the car to safety. He reported that

The above all reside In Los An
The point at which the greatest loss
I of life occurred was in the telescoped
J ends of cars Nos. 887 and 874. The
latter was the rear car of the stand
i Ing train to stop at the junction. But
there was another point where many
were badly injured and several killed.
! That was between the forward car of
the train which caught the Impact and
a third train that was standing ahead
of It Car No 513 was nhovod into
car No. 636 with sufficient force to
telescope both of tbem.
The victims in tho forward crash
were more oaBlly rescued, but where
the full strength of the collision wax
spent human hands were useless.
There was a call for tools which could
not bu found, and when axes were
brought It was slow work to cut
through the side of a car behind
which were Jammed a mass of human
In the ghastly light of the red dan
ger torches the work of rescue pro
ceeded. One after another the help
less victims were carried out and
stretched beside the tracks. In the
narrow space of the railroad right
of way there was hardly room for
them. Often the men bearing Strati h
ers stepped over the bodies of Other
victims In urder to find a plaoe to
deposit their burdens
Women becatnt delirious with pain
The most awful experience were thoso
of the dozen or twenty persons much'
in the telescoped ends of the two
cars Some of them waited piitiont
ly while the side of the ear was (hop
ped out with axes Others cried oui
that thS) were dying, begged for WB

the work of rescue that they begc-d
to be left alone.
One woman caught among tho
wrecked seats waved her arm and
screamed frantically until she faint

who came near to take care of her

From one side of the car the man

which were rushed from the city ar
rived on tho scon they gathered up
splinters from tho wrecked cars and
bound many broken legs 6o that the
Injured might be removed to hospitals
Scores of women volunteered their
services as nurses and tore up their
underskirts to make bandages.
Among the most frantic workers
was A E Blocker, who had somehow
escaped uninjured while his wife whs
pinned in the death trap between th'
two cars Just before the side of tho
car had been cut away he staggered
back with nn exclamation.
"My God. I can't stand It any long

Hundreds of automobiles coming
from the beaches stopped, and the
owners lent assistance as they could.
As fast as an Injured victim could
staggrr to the outskirts of the crowd
he was picked up and taken away,
and It is estimated that there were
scores who Injuries will not be re
ported until later.
Three Japanese were stretched side
by side, all helpless and silent. They
were badly Injured, but one of them
kept Inquiring for the fourth member
of their party He was taken out
among the last in a dying condition.
One man died on the floor of tho

"This is not the correct signal, so I

again and again to hear the eorrer t

two or three hundred feet of where I

With the usual rush of business In
cldent to this period or the year, the
railroads are scenting trouble ahead in
the form of a shortage of cars
In anticipation of this the railroads
have repaired and added to their
'qulpment. but it is the fear of those
In charge of railway operation that
this alone will not suffice and to avoid
serious delays and congestion the ship
pers and the railroads must actively
Delay on the part of shippers In
loading and unloading cars Is often
i he- direct cause of the carrier's In
ability to furnish cars, whereas If the
shippers would load and unload
promptly and when consistent load
tars to their rated capacity difficul
ties incident to ni6h of business
would, it Is believed, be approximate
The solution of the problem appears
to be co-operation prompt loading and
unloading by the shipper and prompt
movement and delivery of cars by tin
railroads. With this end In view last
year the California Railroad commis
sion, as well as tho Railway commie
slon of Oregon and several other
states took cognizance of conditions
and with the hearty support of many
trade and commercial organizations
developed a spirit of co-operntlon be
tween the shippers aud the railroads
wldch very substantially relieved the
situation iind a heavy movement of
traffic resulted without serious delay
or congestion anywhere. The plau
gave such general satisfaction that in
all probability It will soon be a mu
tual permanent working arrangement.
I Present indications are that in tho
near future demand for cars will bo
very heavy and even with a large sup
ply of equipment and moving cars ac
tlve co-operation between the carriers
and the shippers must obtain.
RAIDS MADE BY

ed several raids on alleged question

gresses As they could not furnish
bail, they were behind the bars es
