Span of Bridge Over Barren
fL. -T tj r n
XMVCl ANCctl JDUWUIlg UIGC1I
Gives Away and Handicaps
Due io a span of the L. & N. rail-,
road bridge over Barren River near
Bowling Green, giving away on last
Tuesday afternoon, the Louisville and
Nashville through freight and passcn
gen Southbound trains have been de
toured over the L. H. & St. L. rail
road for a week.
The span collapsed after a wheel
on the tender of the engine of a north
bound freight broke. The engine got
across safely but when the first freight
car struck the derail it crashed
through the bridge and five or six
other cars followed it.
There were no accidents or death
as a result of the wreck. But on Wed
nesday afterwards, Daniel Cornwell,
a carpenter, standing nearby was kill
ed by flying metal which struck him
when the bridge was being dynami
ted. Another man was seriously in
jured at the same time and died later
as a result of accidents.
The wreck is said to have dealt
traffic one of the most serious blows
it has had in several decades over
the L. & N. line.
With the L. & N. freight and pas
senger trains and those of the L. H.
& St. L. R. R. too, there have been
between thirty and forty trains pass
ing through Cloverport in the past
week. The L. St. N. freight trains are
made up of twenty-five to thirty cars.

COOK WITHDRAWS FROM
RACE AS REPRESENTATIVE.
On the advice of some of the leaders
of the Republican party in this Legis

be a candidate for the office of Repre
sentative from this district. Since my
announcement I have met with hearty
support from many Republicans in
both this and Breckinridge county It
is needless for me to say that I ap
preciate this support from my friends
more than I can express. But to make
the race as things now stand could
only result in endangering Republican
Success in the district this fall and as
success of the party is stronger in me
than my personal ambition. I have
decided to withdraw and leave the
field clear, so that there will be no
party fight in the primary, thus insur-
ing the election of a Republican from
tI,ls district. Again extending my sin-
