accidents iu the history of railroads
the accident. He was worth perhaps
A small yearling calf was the cause of I
$15, aud !?3,000 would not cover the
loss to the railroad company, besides
the lives sent suddenly to the an?
The scene of the accident was on
the Norfolk and Western railroad
about four miles east of Iladford.
There is a little valley there, and the
railroad runs aronnd one of the hills
that shut it in, while a clear brook '
makes its way round the base of the
other. Down in the valley just be?
low the embankment over which the
railroad winds was a little shanty oc?
cupied by fourteen Italian laborers
employed on the double tracking of
the. road at this point. 1
Nearly all of them were at home
on Sunday night when engine No. u,
drawing thirty-two freight cars, came <
rushing down the grade from Chris- (
riausburg on the way to Radford. It ?
was not a regular train, but a special i
freight in charge of Conductor Haines,
who had orders to carry the train to j
the Radford yard, where it was to 1>h ]
made up the following day. He was I
on special duty, and the distance to (
be run was >o short that the engineer <
did not think it worth while to turn
his engine around. ? c
It was about 8:30 o'clock when the ]
train pulled by the station at Chris- i
tiansburg. Conductor Haines was in ]
the caboose, and the crew >. ere on \
the last car. The train backed out
of the station, and commence it*
fatal run. Just here the grade in?
clines downward considerably, and i
the train was running at the rate of j
twenty-five miles an hour when the i
tender struck the yearling as it waff !
crossing the road. The tender was .
derailed and the immense pressure
behind sent it sprinning round. The <
rear car cleared the track, but the I
part n?*xt the engine was caught in
the latter's mighty wheels, and the
fierce battle of the skeam-lifed ma- i
chine began. i
It was not of a moment's duration.
The wheels of the tender were stuck
fast and the locomotive could not ?Iis
lodge them, aud in its attempt it ?
turned a complete snmersault, strik- j
inc on the side next the steep cut. AS :
the engine reversed itself and reared *
up in the air the fireman jumj e I, but ',
Engineer (Jot k stuck to bis pos' and ?
paid the forfait by giving up his life. ?'
The engine pinned him to the ground, '
crushed his head and shoulders iuto
the soft earth aud left his feet aud ,
one free arm beating a nervous pit-a
pat on the bed of the road. His death
must have been instantaneous, the
pit a-pat being only the contraction
of his muscles.
On came the cars. They jumped !
the track on the other side and went 1
tumbling down the fifteen-foot em- ;
bankment and over the little shanty '
of the Italians. At the first inkling
of dan rer they had turned and lied
towards the little brook fifty feet |
away. But two of them never reached
it, aud several did with bloody gar?
ments. Michael Jaruettc was in the
house at tue time; the others were
out of doors Jarnette did not get
out. A piece of wood pinned him 1
down across the throat and chest, and
he was literally choked to'death. His
face was black and his eyes started
from their sockets when the rescuing
party dug him out.
Ne'meri was killed nearly forty pa?
ces from the shanty. He must have
been struck down by a piece of tim?
ber, and then a great coal car tum?
bled down the embankment and
crushed him into an unrecognizable
mass of iiesh and bones. Eight of
the thirty-two cars left the track and
completely hid from view the shanty.
There was more than one remarka- ?
ble incident connected with the acci?
dent. J. S. Goans and two compan?
ions, brick masons, were on the train
going to Radford, where they were to
go to work the next morning on the
stone bridges of the company near
there. Goans was in the second car
next to the engin?. He was on the
roof, and when the accident occurred
he waB shaken from his seat and shot
through the air like a meteor. He
6truck the tarred roof, went through,
knocked three planks from the side
and went rolling down the incline,
bruised, scratched and jarred, fol?
lowed by the crushing cars.
'?'It hardly took two seconds for the
thing to occur"'said J. A. Turner, who
witne-?sed the accident from his house
a hundred yards distance. "It wras
terrible and I never want to see any?
thing like it again "
Word was sent to Radford and the
wrecking train was hastened to the
scene, but even before this the work
of rescue was commenced. Every-one
in the neighborhood came down, and
when they were reinforced by the
trainmen, it did not take tbem long .
to release the imprisoned men. But
they were dead and lay there with
their bloody faces -upturned to the

seems to be one of accommodations,

pressed. No fault whatever can be

Huntington, W. Va., Aug. 25.
There was a serious and bloody riot
at a performance given by the "Sunny
South'" theatrical company at Coredo
Friday night, particulars of which
have been received. One man was
shot and over a dozen badly beaten,
and the floating theatre, in which
the trouble occurred, was badly |
The trouble was inaugurated by a J
number of tough young nen who per?
sisted in insulting* the people upon
the stage during tht second act.
Three of the performers left the stage |
with clubs and attacked their tor?
mentors. The men were at once1
overpowered by the audience and
cruelly beaten. The remainder of
the company went to their assis?
tance, when some one turned out the
Pandemonium at once broke loose,
and every man began an onslaught
on his neighbor in the dark. Women
-creamed and men called for help,
The police arrived and deputized a I
number of citizens to aid in quelling |
the riot, but this made matters
worse, and soon pistol shots began to
echo around the hall. Finally the
crowd charged onto the stage after |
the fleeing performers, who were un?
ceremoniously flung into the river,
where they were stoned in the dark
The police and show people were
badly wounded by stones, and the
condition of several is serious. The
Advertiser characterizes the affair as
"the bloodiest and most disgraceful
episode ever enacted on West Vir?

WHAT THE LEGISLATORS ARE
TRYING TO DO.
THE WHITE ELEPHANT PUT AWAY
Adjournment Within a Slomh-Conu
img to un Understanding on the Tar
Iff BUI?The Deniocrntic Policy
Against Delaying its Passage.
Washington, Aug. 25.?The Post
says the two houses of Congress have
taken a new grip since the white ele?
phant known as the force bill has
been put out of the way. There is
renewed activity in the House, busi?
ness having lagged in that body while
the uncertainty existed whether the
session was to end before or
after the November elections. The
leaders in the House now expeet to
hold a quorum for the rest of the ses?
sion, members having returned who
would otherwise have remained away
indefinitely. Busiuess has bristled
up now that the recess is in sight
within a period of a month.
On the strength of the revivifica?
tion an effort is being made to get a
combination to pass some more of the
public building bills on the. calendar.
The committee on rules will have a
lively time of it during the next four
weeks if it endeavors, for the re?
mainder of the session, to repress leg?
islation aa it has done heretofore.
By the end of the present week, an
understanding will be had as to the^ ^
length of time to be devoted to the
tariff debate in the Senate."> There
will be no friction about it, and the
Senate will resume its former seren?
ity. Many Democratic sonators have
been urged to go ahead with their
present tactics, and force the tariff
bill over into the next session, as
they have the force bill.
This bold and hazardous policy
meets with no favor on the Demo?
cratic side from any of the party
managers, because it would give a
new impulse to the force bill move?
ment. The support of leading Re?
publican members on the finance com?
mittee was given to the postpone?
ment of the force bill in order that
the tariff bill might be passed. If
the Democrats undertook to defeat
both they would fiud themselves in
deeper trouble than they have been
in at any time fqr a long" while. This
much has been plainly intimated
from sufficient authorities within the .
finance committee. The Democrats /
could not ask more than to have the
tariff bill go back to the House with
a big reciprocity amendment tacked
Tuesday and Wednesday have al?
ready been set apart for the consider
ation of the Butterworth bill, to pro?
hibit dealings in futures, etc., on
which a vote will be tak?n on Wed?
nesday. The committee on ruJga-j?V.l
bring in an order sett-iajr/apart Thurs?
day and Saturday for business
brought up bv the committee on
labor, and this order will probably
be agreed to. Friday will be private
