Speeding Indiana Interurban Cars
Crash Together With Terrific
Bluffton, Ind., Sept. 21.-Forty-two
persons were killed in an interurban
trolley wreck between here and Fort
Wayne today. The wreck was one of
the most horrible railway accidents
in recent history. Just what caused
the wreck no one seems to know. At
least no one yet has offered a clear
explanation. At 11.56 the train left on
schedule, a regular consisting of one
car, left Bluffton for Fort Wayne. At
the same hour a single motor car left
Fort Wayne for Bluffton, empty, to
get a load of passengers to bring back
to Fort Wayne for the county fair.
Some one made a mistake. At
Kingsland, 18 miles south of Fort
Wayne, the cars met.
Those who were in the accident can
tell little of what actually occurred.
In the extra car were no passengers.
In the regular local were probably 55
or 60 persons. Of these few escaped
death or injury.
Time In Doubt.
The exact time of the accident is in
doubt. Probably it was about a half
hour after noon. The southbound car
seemed to take the right of way. Like
a giant missile it ploughed its way
through the packed coach coming in
the opposite direction. Its heavier
frame cut like a keen knife a pathway
through the length of the opposing
-vehicle. It cut off seats an inch above
the floor and smashed and packed in
one ghastly mass the whole interior of
In the northbound car there were
only a few capable of giving aid to
the dying.. They did what they could.
Word was flashed by telephone to
Bluffton and a special car was loaded
with all the physicians available, and
sent to the scene. At nightfall all
the dead and injured had been remov
Around each of the two Bluffton un
dertaking establishments tonight there
is a crowd of mourners, the idly cu
rious being kept back.
One heroic act which will stand out
in the annals of the wreck was that
performed by Conductor Shiller of the
northbound car. Though injured se
verely he staggered down the track
and flagged a limited train only a
short distance away.
SNOW FELL IN CHEROKEE.
In One Section of County Ground Was
Gaffney, Sept. 21.-The cold day in
August and the cold diy in July have
been heard of since time began, but.
the cold day in September is some
thing of an oddity. The cold day in
September has been experienced in
this city and surrounding country for
some days and in the Macedonia sec
tion still stranger things are heard of.
It is the only section of this county
and probably the only part of the State
that can brag of having a considerable
fall of snow in the month of Septem
ber. Such, however, is true. An eye
witness, whose veracity is unquestion
ed, has just returned from that section
and reports that dd.ring the recent cold
snap he sepnt the night with an influ
ential and prosperous farmer of that
section. The following morning while
he was sitting on the porch, the snow
began to fall and continued steadily
for some~ time, until the ground was
almost covered. ..
