NINE MEET DEATH
AS AUTOS COLLIDE
Philadelphia residents are
victims of bad accident
in large park.
THREE MACHINES IN CRASH
Ono Car, Reported to be Running at
High Rate of Speed, Strikes An
other, Which Is Hurled
Against tho Third.
Philadelphia, Pa. Nino persons are
dead as a result of tho terrific col
lision between three automobiles on
tho edge of Falrmount park. Ono of
tho cars which is reported to havo
been running at high speed, struck an
other car, which was hurled ngalnBt a
third. Tho "wild" car, containing six
mon, crashed through a Tailing on a
bridgo and fell 40 feet, killing all Its
occupants. Threo other men In tho
second car also met death by the
force of tho collision. Tho dead:
Robert A. Boyd.
Edward Shaw, Jr.
W. H. Lawrence.
Gordon H. Miller.
The accldont occurred at 33d and
Thompson streets, Just outside of
Pairmount park. The park, which is
ono of the largest in tho country, Is
noted for its beautiful drives and all
day and night strings of motor cars
are passing along somo of the road
ways. Charles J. Spade, who escaped unin
jured from tho crash, except for slight
cuts and cruises, declared that his
car had Just corao out of the pork
and was crossing Thompson street at
33d, when another car, seemingly run
ning wild, came flying up out of the
darkness and crashed into his car be
fore ho could avoid it.
Then tho wild car, which it was
later learned belonged to Edward
Shaw of 1310 Morris street, swung
around by tho force of tho impact,
plunged across the sidewalk through a
guard rail on tho edge of tho street to
the Pennsylvania railroad tracks, 40
feet below. This car was a total
wreck and every maa in it was killed.
Two men in the Spako car were killed
instantly and another was so badly in
jured that he died In a shore time.
Whon the Shaw car struck Spade's
machine, the latter was hurled back
ward into a third automobile, which
was passing in Thompson street. This
car seems to have escaped without
any serious damage, for it made off
in the darkness.

War Boat Goes to Bottom With Of
ficers and Men After Being
Struck by Liner.
Dovor, Eng. Fifteen officers and
men of the British navy wero drowned
by tho sinking of the submarine "B 2"
after she had been cut in two by tho
Hamburg-American liner Amerika off
tho coast of Kent. The commander
of the llttlo vessel, Lieut. Percy B.
O'Brien, was among the victims, but
his second in command, Lieut. Rich
ard I. Pulleyne, was rescued after be
ing a long time in the water. Ho was
the only survivor and was utterly ex
hausted when picked up. He could
only say: "The submarine was cut
in two. I went down a mile."
The disaster occurred while the
third patrol flotilla of submarines,
consisting of six vessels, wero maneu
vering off the South Foreland on tho
coast of Kent.
The "B 2" had left Dover harbor
at 5 o'clock in the morning to par
ticipate with the other submarines in
a series of maneuvers. Tho accident
occurred Just an hour later, although
none of the sister submarines knew
anything about it until Lieut. Pulleyne
was picked up from the sea.
Tho liner Amerika stood by after
the collision and threw life buoys
overboard while a number of torpedo
boats, after being informed of the
accident by wireless telegraphy,
searched the sea for hours. None of
the other members of the crew, how
ever, was found and no sign of wreck
ago was disccrnablo in tho vicinity.
The Amerika then proceeded on her
voyage to Southampton and Cher
bourg on her way to New York.
This is the sixth disaster to British
submarines, each of them involving
tho loss. of from 11 to 15 lives.
Lieut. Percy B. O'Brien was the
commander of the "B 2." The "B 2"
was one of the older and smaller class
of submarines, having been built, with
ten sister ships, between the year
1903 and 1907. Her length was 100
feet and her beam 12 feet seven
inches. Her displacement on tho sur
face was 180 tons and, submerged, 210
tons. Her indicated horsepower was
GOO on the surface and 150 below.
Her engines developed a speed of
11 knots on the surface and eight
knots submerged. She was fitted with
two torpedo tubes and her comple
ment was two officers and 13 men.
