TWELVE PERSONS KILLED AND
Ac'ident Happened on Nickel Plate
Road at Kishman, Ohio —Caused by
Misunderstanding Orders —Passen-
ger Engine and Three Cars Leaped
Over Freight Engine.
Cleveland. Ohio. Aug. 11.—A fast
sastbound passenger train on the
Nickel Plate road collided with a west
bound freight at Kishman, Ohio, Dear
Vennillion. resulting in the death of
]2 persons while at leasi 28 others
were injured, eight of whom probably
vnTTdie. The wreck, according to the
officials of the company, was caused
by a misunderstanding of orders, or
neglect to obey them on the part of
the crew of the freight train.
Charles W. Pool, engineer of pas
senger train. Conneaut. Ohio.
Joseph Alexander. Newark, N. J.
Frank Weaver. Findlay, Ohio.
Nine Italian laborers.
The injured include the following:
John \V. Long. Cleveland,
Richard A. Long, son of .1. W. Long.
Loiii.s Rheinbold, Bascom, Ohio.
E. E. O'Hara, Findlay, Ohio.
B. L. Kerr, Grafton, Ohio.
John \\. Murphy, West Haven, Conn.
Phillip Baskima, Tiffin, Ohio.
Floyd Tinner, Ada. Ohio.
John DedtOUt, Tiffin. Ohio.
Frank Phillips, Findlay, Ohio.
Aside from the engineer, the men
killed on the passenger train, were all
riding in the smoking car and were
mostly foreign laborers in the employ
of the Standard Oil company on their
way from Fort Seneca, Ohio, to Brook
flcld, Ohio, in charge of a foreman.
Engineer C. C. Poole of the passen
ger train, was killed on the passenger
train while trying to reach for the air
brake. His fireman saved himself by
Jumping. The high speed of the pas
senger train threw its locomotive and
first three couches over on Hie engine
of the freight train, telescoping the
smoker and tiie car following. Several
cars of the freight train were splinter- ,
ed to fragments. t
Of the passengers in the smoker,
none escaped injury. Fortunately there 1
was no fire, but the heavy timbers
of the wrecked cars pinned down many
and prevented them getting out until
Doctors were sent on a special train
to the scene from Lorrine.
When the trains came together, al
most everybody in the smoker was
dozing. The sudden jar hurled them
out of their seats into the aisle and
the roof and sides. 01 the car seemed
all at once to crush in like a paper
bag, pinning down the passengers.
The passengers in the second car were
more fortunate. There the violence of
the Impact was tut so severe, though
few gut uff wil limit cuts, bruises,
sprains or broken bones. No passen
gers in the sleepers were injured.
The men on the train who escaped
injury worked hard to rescue the vic
tims ai.d were aided by residents from
the vicinity of the wreck. Some of the
injured were placed in the sleeping
cars while others were removed to
houses near the siding.
Blunder Over the Time.
President Canlff of the Nickel Plate
states that from the information in
the hands of the officials the freight
crew had orders to go on the siding at
Kishman and there await the passage
of the passenger train. This was not
done in time to permit the passenger
train to go by, or a Bagman to be sent
out to protect the tram.

NO EXTRA SESSION.
Many Reasons Urged on President
Oyster Hay, N. V., Aug. 15.—Not
withstanding the more or less definite
announcement which has emanated
from various sources during the last
few months, congress may not. be
called into extraordinary session next
November. Indeed, the indications are
now that no extraordinary session will
be held this year.
This statement is made on the au
thority of President Rooseveli him
self. He has not decided definitely
vet and will probably not reach a de
termination until he shall have re
turned to Washington the latter part
il September. The chances of an ex
traordinary session appear, however,
it) be fading.
Strong pressure is being brought to
bear upon the president to induce him
not to call an extra session. So much
Interest has been manifested in the
Bubjecl throughout the country that
the president has received a large
number of letters regarding it. Many
senators and representatives have
d against an extra session.

Christiania. Norway. Aug. 14.—The
Norwegian people, in a referendum
vote taken Sunday, pronounced in fa
vor of the dissolution of the union
with Sweden with remarkable though
not unexpected unanimity. Of 460,000
rotes, 320,000 east ballots. The differ
ence between the total number of
voters and the number of votes cast
is attributable to absentees, such as
sailors abroad and others who are out
of the country at present.
There were scenes of the greatest
enthusiasm everywhere. Thousands of
women who did not ttkve the right of
franchise, signed petitions in the
streets indorsing the dissolution. In
Christiania and other cities the total
population turned out, everywhere
wearing long streamers of the national
colors and pictures of Premier Michel
One member of the cabinet said to
the Associated I'ress:
"The result surpasses the most
sanguine expectations. The next of
licial steps will be taken after the
storthing meets on August 21, when
the result of the plebescite will be
communicated to Sweden through the
Swedish cabinet and the riksdag. The
storthing will repeat ,ue request that
Lhe riksdag declare the riksakt in op
iTaiion anil the union dissolved. The
storthing will also express a willing
ness to negotiate concerning the de
tails of the dissolution. It. is the earn
est desire of Norway to conclude the
dissolution amicably. Norway will
never retract, but everything will be
lone to meet the wishes of Sweden in
)t her directions.
