-Despite Vigilant Search. No
Trace of Missing Man Has
Yet Been Found-An
Explanation is Much
Lynehburg, Va., Nov. 30.-The
cause of the awful wreck near Law
yers depot, 10 miles south of this city
yesterday iorninig, in which Presi
dent Santiel Spencer and his party
of lomineitt New York and Bahi
more men lost their lives, is laid ab
solutely at the door of C. D. Mattoax,
the operator who was in charge of the
block telegraph station at Ragoon.
Mattoax, who disappeared after be
ing relieved less than an hour after
the wreck, has not been found, des
pite the fpet that railway detectives
have scoured the country around the
wreck and his home at Sandy Level,
in Pittsylvania county, some 40 miles
from the scene of the accident on a
smill braneh line of the Southern.
An official of the Southern railway
late this afternoon stated that the
company was desirous of apprehend
ing Mattoax in order to secure a
statement from him that might throw
;ome light on the causes that led him
to allow two trains.in the same block
at the same time. This official was
not prepared to state today whether
)r not the company would take steps
arnd lie (lid not then know if lie could
prosecute under the laws of the
State of Virginia.
Offie Sheets Examined.
An examination of the telegraph
sheets kept at the Rangoon and Law
yers block offices by the representa- t
tive of the Associated Press discloses 1
the fact that Mattoax allowed train s
No. 33, the Jackonville express, up- s
on the block, the train passing his c
station, getting a clear track from I
him at 6.06 o'clock. The operator at i
Lawyers, the next station ahead, I
claimed that Mattoax did not ask <
him for a "clear track" for No. 33,
and he, therefore, did not know this
train had passed Rangoon. The block
slieet at Lawyers bears out this i
claim. The sheets at both offices i
show that the operator at Rangoon I
asked Lawyers for a clear track for i
No. 37, the Washington and South- ,
western 7'Vestibuled Limited, and the I
Lawyers opelartor, not knowing No. 33 i
was in the block, gave No. 37 the
right of way at 6:14 o'clock and No. 1
37 passed Rangoon at that time.
Simmered down, if Mattoax, at <
Rangoon, had reported train No. 33
on the blOCk to Lawyers, then there '
would have beenR no accident, because
the operator at Lawyers; would have
hleld No. 37 at Rangoon)0l unitil the
Jac'ksonille train 1had( elegeda the i
block at Lawyers, no0 mat ter how long<
tile delay might hlave bleenl between
tile two offlces.
An Erroneous Report.
Superintendnet WX. S. Anidrew~s of
tile Daniville division, late this aIfter'
nloRn explained that the reCport thatI
tihe engine of the forward trinl had
~oe some distance ahead of its traini
whenR it became detachled was erron
Bouls and tile fact is that the engine
dlid not leave the train more than 20
feet, the air brakes appJlyingI im
mediately upon the engine as5 well as
the train. The trouble was the '
breaking of a knuckle of the draw
head on thle front end of the for- I
wardl ear. Tile trainlmen were repair
inig this when the collision occurred.
-Assistant General SuperintendentI
E. HI. Coapmnan, states thlere is Rnot the
slighltest doubt but tIle flagman made
every possible effort to protect the
rear of the trail) but hle could not get
around a sharp curve ini time to pro
venit the collision. As soon as En
giRneer Kinney sawv tihe signal hle ap
plied the emergency bralkes aind stay
ed at his post to the last.
Superintendent Andrews of the
Danville division left late this even
ing, having been called to Washing
ton. It was Mr. Andrews' knowledge
that1 the entllire ofliililfamily of' thle
Southern Railway company hlad been
summoned to Washington to be pres

The condition of all of the wounded
n the local hospitals, including Pres

WaTfshinugto1i, Nov. 30.-Though
-rief of the horrible death of Presi
ent Samuel Spencer and his loss to
lie system are uippermnost inl society
s well as in railroad circles here,
peculation has naturally begun as
a his successor. The officials of the
oadl decline to discuss the ryibject,
mt it is being discussed for them
y the press and by financiers.
(mong~ these it is promptly deelnred:
'Nobody knows but J. Pierpont Mor
an, lie probably hasn't yet .U. Hed.'
'his is supplemented by the remark
hat James J. Hill will likely have
~rent weight with Mr. Morgan in
raking the selection.
Col. A. B. Andrews, the first vice
resident and the acting president, is
ecing mentioned for the place and he
vould likely stand a good chance, but
(. is believed lie would not accept for
lie reason that it would necessitate
lis giving up his resdencc at Raleigh.
)ne of his ch,se p)eionatl friends
nade a statement to this effect this
fternoon after one of the afternoon;
>apers here had suggested the first
~ice president's name for the presi-i
[ency, saying that uinder no circum-|
tantcs would col. Andrews leavel
