NEARLY TWO SCORE
KILLED IN COLSION
Two Traction Trains Crash With
Terrific Impact Near Staunton,
Staunton, Ill., Oct. 4.-Thirty-two
persons were killed and 28 injured :A
a collision on the Illinois Traction
system two miles north of here, LatO
this afternoon. One of the injured
died on the way to the hospital. An
other is not expected to live.
Only three of the dead ha,p been
Identified as yet, and these are all

The collision occurred between 1o
cal train No. 14, northbound, and an
excursion train No. 73, headed toward
St. Louis and loaded with passengers
on their way to view the parade of
the Six Veiled Prophets at St. LUis.
The accident, it is said, was due en
tirely to the disregard of orders by
the crew of the local, which was in
charge of M. A. Leonard, conductor,
and John Lierman, of Staunton, mo
Train No. 14 had orders to pass
train 73 at Staunton. The latfec train
was running in two sections avd -the
c.rders given to No. 14 were explicit
-that it should pass both sect.ons of
the southbound train at Staumon. The
.3rst section of 73 had passel when
the crew of No. 14 pulled out on the
maintrack and started norTh At a
sharp turn in the road at the bottom
of a decline, two miles north of this
place, the two trains came together in
a splintering crash. Train 14 and the
second section of 73 were both on the
down grade and moving at speed of
40 miles an hour when they met. The
-collision occurred right at the bottom
of the double incline and at the sharp
est part of the curve.
The crew of No. 14 and the crew
of No. 73, which was composed of
W. V. Duncan, conductor, and E. J.
Young, motorman, "loth of Spring
'field, Ill., leaped for their lives as
soon as they saw the collision was
inevitable and all four escaped with
cut serious injury. They were badly
shaken up, but were able to lend as
sis-tance to the injured an instant
later. None of the passengers had a
chance to escape as dhe crash be
tween the cars followed immediately
the cries of warning issued by the
conductors and motormen as they
.jumped from the trains.
The cars came together with a ter
rific crash, and both were demolished
and piled in one huge mass of wreck
age, through which the bodies of the
dead and wounded were scattered.
Few Escape Unhurt.
It is certain that by far the larger
'portion of the passengers on both
cars were either killed outright or
desperately injured. The two trains
were so closely twisted together that
it was a marvel that anybody escaped
death or injury.
As quickly as possible word of the
accident was telephoned to Spring
field and Peoria and a special car
was immediately rushed from these
points. Other cars were also sent
north from Granite City, Ill.. These
last took many of the injured and hur
ried them back to Granite City, where
they were placed in hospitals. As
fast as the dead were extricated they
were placed in one of .?he cars sent
SUSPECTS IN LEXINGTON.
Men Suspected of Killing Paul Wil.
liams Brought on Special-Big
Crowd Gathers Round.
Columbia State. a . '.,
Lexington, Oct. 4.-Nineteer i Ie.
are in the Lexington jail tonight.
Twelve of them charged with being
implicated in the murder of Paul Wil
liams, freight clerk in the Columbia
-office of the Southern railway, on Sat
murday night. The others are being
held as witnesses. The men were
brought from Augusta on train No.
130 tonight, coming in a private coach
in charge of Sheriff P. H. Corley and
the following officers of the Southern!
railway: H. T. B. Boye, inspector
.special service Southern. Wakhing
ton-; S. G. LaFar, special agent. Char
ieston-; N. H. Bullock, special agent.
t~olunibia; J. D. Ehney, special officer,

iey, of Lexington.
Crowd Mfeets Train.
A large crowd met the train at the
depot. The men were marched to the
jail a mile from the depot with Deputy
Sheriff S. J. Miller in the lead. When
the jail was reached there were fully
200 people along the street. all anx
ious to get a glimpse of the men.
Two of the men were picked up at
Graniteville this morning and are be
ing held on suspicion. They give
their names as Ralph Ingle and Carl
Sheftlet. They are both white.
Those charged with implication in
Frank Anderson, Elijah Clarke, Roy
Rich. Jack Johnson and Garland
Brown, negroes; John Wilson, J. 0.
Cabe, Haden Hooper and Geo. Nich
There are several others who are
held as witnesses. Their names could
not be learned tonight.
Say Proof is Positive.
Sheriff Corley went before Magis
trate T. F Hahn, at North Augusta
this morning, and swore out the war
rant. The officers state that they
have the most positive proof against
the men, a number of eye-witnesses
having been found. Sheriff Corley
said tonight, as did the other officers
with him, that the credit for the ar
rest of the men is due to the efforts
of Chief of Police Elliott and his force
of men In Augusta, Mr. Bullock of the
Southern said that Chief Elliott
should have the praise.
Felton Gilbert, the negro who was
picked up in Columbia on Sunday and
who alleged that he was roughTy
treated while on the train and finally
thrown from the car while it was in
motion and injured, was brought from
Columbia by Deputy Sheriff Miller
this afternoon and is being held in a
room to himself. Gilbert says that
he will be able to identify his assail
ants upon sight and he will be given
an opportunity tomorrow morning of
Under Special Guard.
The jail is under special guard to
night. The men charged with the
crime and the witnesses are being
kept in separate cells.
It is not known whether the accused
will ask for a preliminary. The of
ficers of the Southern railway will re
main in Lexington until after tomor
row, awaiting developments. Should
a preliminary be ordered Chief Elliott
of the Augusta police force will come
over and appear as a witness.
Further than the statement that
they have positive proof of the slayer
of Williams, the officers will not give
out anything. Should all the men
have to be kept locked up the sheriff
will have a problem on his hands, as
the jail will hardly hold them and it
is likely that some of them will have
to be sent to the penitentiary.
According to the statement of the
officers Chas. Hagenbeck, head of the
circus, did all in his power to help
find the guilty parties. He even went
so far as to tell the officers to hold
the entire company over if necessary.
