SCORES DEAD AND INJURED.
Heavy Toll in Iowa Railroad Disas
ter.-Forty-five Dead, Forty
Marshalltown, Iowa, March 21.
The wreck at 8.15 a. m. today at
Green Mountain of Trains Nos. 19
and 21 of the Rock Island, running
over the Great Western from Mar
shalltown to Waterloo, has proven
the most disastrous in the history of
,the Iowa railroad castastrophes. For
ty-two are known to be dead, twenty
six of whom have been identified.
Farty were injured, some of them fa
tally. The unidentified dead are in
the undertaking shops at Marshall
town, many so horribly mangled that
'dentification may he impossible.
Piiaetically all of the dead and iin
jured were from Iowa and North and
South Dakota. The Catholic Hopi
tal, the railroad branch of the Y. M.
C. A. and an apartment house near
the Chicago Great Western -depot
have been converted into surgical
rooms, in which are the injured. Ev
ery surgeon and physician in Mar
Jhalltown and the -town of Green
Mountain and Gladbrook, near by, is
in the city, doing everything possible
to relieve the suffering.
Cause of Catastrophe.
A little freight wreck on the Rock
Island last night, at Shelburg, in
which Brackeman Reynolds, of Ce
dar Rapids, was killed and Fireman
Herman, also of Cedar Rapids, was
possibly fatally scalded, was the in
idirect cause of the Green Mountai
tragedy. The Rock Island track
from Cedar Rapids north, the St.
Paul Line, had not been cleared this
morning, and it became necessary to
detour over the Great Western.
Trains Nos. 19 anid 21 were sent from
Cedar Rapids to Marshalltown, while
Train 49, for Sioux Falls, followed
shortly after, escaping the wreck.
At Marshalltown Trains 19 and 21
were coupled together as they came
in. By this arrangement both en
gines were in front, running back
wards. Because there is no table
at Reinbeek, where the trains, expect
ed to leave the main line, the leo
motives were backing.
The ill-fated train consisted of
h-irteen cars. " The Pullman Colon
ial,'' at the rear of Train No. 21,
from St. Louis, was leading the train
next to Engine No. 1,008. Then
came a smoker, and following that

His statement follows
"The company was organized in
March, 1908, for the purpose of econ
omic operation of certain subsidiary

in the indictment retul'med today by
the Federal grand jury for the North

now believe, that its organization and
the operation of its subsidiary corn

Hartsville. Mareh 22.-Two years
ago Major J. L. Coker. who has done
so much toward the development of
Hartsville, a.nd the surounditng coun
try, conceived the idea of establieh
ing a woman 's college in the Pee
Dee country; this idea soon mate
rialized and Coker College for Wo
men was established on the grounds
formerly occupied by the Welsh
Neck High School. With his great
ability as an organizer the College
has developed until today it is a po
tent factor in the educational sys
tem of South Carolina. Patriotic to
wards his hometown, and having al
ways the welfare of his people at
heart, Major Cdker gave to the eol
lege a magnificent office building and
auditorium, costing $30,000 today.
The corner stone for this building
was laid with the usual exercises by
the Grand Lodge of Masons of South
Caroliina; ma-t prominent Masons
were in attendance, and the oecas
iun marks an epoch not only in the
eduv-ational development of the Pee
Dee country, but the whole State.
Not content with what he had al
ready done for the College, Major
Coker sent for his friend, Associati
Justice C. A. Woods, and announced
to Coker College and South Cairolina
that a fund of $150,000 had been
placed in the hands of five trustees
as an endowment for their :College
and assuring it a. place in the college
world. Major Coker never thought
.that he was doing the biggest, and
most magnificent act in the history
of South Carolina; he little thought
Ithat in this announcement he was
cre.ating an example that other -men
with means would ha.ve to follow.
The gift is made, and Dr. Baldy, the
president of the College, voiced the
sentiment of all present wihen 'he
said: "It is the prinicely gift of a
