PASSENGERS CRUSHED TO DEATH
Scores Eilled and Injured in Railroad
Disaster.-Casualties Placed at
Manchester, N. Y., Aug. 25.-At least
thirty-seven persons are tonight be
lieved to have been killed and more
than sixty injured, as the result of
the wrecking today of Lehigh Valley
passenger train No. 4. Speeding east
*wat-d behind time, the train ran into a
spread rail on a trestle near here, and
two day coaches from the rear section
plunged, crashing downward -40 feet,
striking the east embankment like a
pair of projectiles.
The wreck was one of the most dis
astrous ever recorded on the system.
Crowded with passengers, many of
whom were war veterans and excur
slonists fromu the G.. A. R. encamp
ment, at Rochester, the train was
made up of fourteen cars, drawn by
bwo big engines, was forty minutes
late when it reached Rochester Junc
tion, and .from there sped eastward to
make up time before reaching Geneva.
Pnllman Leaves Rails.
The engines and two day coaches
bad just passed the centre of a 400-foot
trestle, over Canadaigua -Outlet, 150
yards east of the station, at Manches
ter, at 12.35 o'clock, when the Pull
man car "Austin," the third of a long
train, left the rails. It dragged the
dining car with it and two'day coach
'es and two Pullmans, in this order,
followed. All bumped over the ties a
sh;ort distance, when the coupling be
tween day coach No. 237 and the rear
end of the diner broke. The forward
end of the train dragged the derailed
Pullman "Austin" and diner, safely
over the trestle, after which they
plunged down the south embankment
and rolled over.
The fore end of an ill fated Lehigh
Valley day coach, in which most of the
victims were riding, with a Grank
Trunk day coach, stripped the rear
guard of the southside of the trestle
and plunged to the sha-llow river hed
more than forty feet below.

dmen and women and child-ren,
man-y of whom ;vere killed instan
taneously, were blL'ied. The greatest
destruction occurred in the day coach,
No. 237. A dozen oersons also were
taken later, dead, from the second day
coach, which, after following the first
over the trestle, snapped its rear
coupling and thus saved tihe rest of
the train from being draggeri along.
This .second day coach struck on the
bottom and stood 'end up, the re ar end
projecting a few feet above the top of
the trestle. All of the passer gers in
this car were piled in a tangled jnass

remained on the bridge, with one end
projecting over the gulch, and several
cars behind it derailed and in immed
iate danger of going over the mass of
wreckage below, were soon emptied of
all their passengers, who, aided by
gangs of railroad employees from.the
big freight'yards at Manchester, rush
'ed to aid the injured. It was several
minutes, however, before anybody
reached the cars at the bottom to help

Mfany Veterans Among Victims.
I[t was necessary to cbbp through
the sides and bottom of the day coach
at the bottom and the work of remov
ing the victims mo'ved with painful
Islowness. Death had 'come swiftly to
'many, a large number of the dead hav
ing had their skulls crushed in'when
they were throWn against the car seats
and projections. The mortality was
high among the older passengers, most
of whom were vetera: of the Civil
war, and their wives.
The dead removed from the wreck
and brought to a morgue at Shorts
yille, near here, at 9 o'clock tonight,
number twenty-three. Two other per
sons died in Rochester from their in
juries. Several other persons are ly
ing in hospitals at Rochester, Geneva
and Clifton SpIdigs 'with (probably
fatal injuries. The number of injured
Iwill reach sixty.
Owing to the fact that the derailed
dining car, in going into the ditch east
of the trestle, had brought down sev
eral telegraph poles, with scores of
wires, telegraphic service was broken
and will not be restored until tomor
row. Aid had to be summoned by tele
phone. Coroner D. A. Eisline, of
Shortsville, took charge of the work
at the wreck, assisted 'by Coroners
Armstrong, of Canandaigua, and Flint,
