The Engineer of the Express Killed
and His Wife Drops Dead From
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July 30.—
A railroad accident, horrible in its de
tails and 'sickening In its results, oc
curred this evening just outside of this
city, and as a result about 100 persons
were either killed or injured.
The Reading railroad express which
left Philadelphia at 5:40 o'clock this
evening for Atlantic City crashed into
a Pennsylvania railroad excursion
train at the second signal tower about
four miles out from here. The Penn
sylvania train was returning to Bridge
ton with a party of excursionists from
that place, Millville and neighboring
towns. It was loaded with passengers
and a. rough estimate of the killed and
injured at a late hour places the num
ber at 100. It is hoped that this is an
exaggeration, but the number is un
doubtedly more than fifty.
The identified dead are;

Seventeen unidentified women, four
men and a female child, all dead, were
bi ought to the Excursion house after
midnight. Fireman Kelley, of the
Reading train, was fatally injured.
At the second signal tower the tracks
of the two roads diagonally cross. The
Reading train was given the signal,
but it either failed to work or the speed
of the express was too great to be
checked in time. It caught the excur
sion train broadside and ploughed
through, literally cleaving it in twain.
The engine of the Reading train was
shattered to pieces.
As soon as the news reached Atlantic
City the utmost consternation pre
vailed, but the authorities were equal
to the emergency. Relief trains -were

dispatched to the scene, loaded with
cots and bearing staffs of surgeons. As
quick as the bodies were recovered they
were carried into the local hospital and
undertakers' shops. A general fire
alarm was sounded, and the depart
ment promptly responded, aiding in the
heartrending work of digging for the
victims. Fear grew into despair and
horror as the vigorous work of the re
lief gangs revealed the awful extent of
TWENTY-SEVEN CORPSES FOUND.
The first Reading relief train bore
into this city twenty-seven mangled
corpses, men, women and children. The
next train, not an hour later, carried
fifteen of the maimed and wounded
and two of these died soon after reach
ing the city. As train after train plied
to the scene of the wreck and came
back with its ghastly load, the city
hospital quickly found its capacity
overtaxed. Meanwhile others of the
dead and injured were being carried to
the private hospital at Ocean and Pa
Edward Farr, engineer on the Read
ing train, was killed outright, as was
another road man. who was on the
engine with him. His body and that
of Farr were found under a heap of
debris; the engineer lay in what re
mained of the cab, and his hand still
clasped the throttle. The fireman had
leaped a few seconds before, and
escaped with trifling injuries. Samuel
Thorne, baggage master on the Read
ing train, is among the dead. James
M. Bateman, a Bridgeton undertaker,
is known to be killed. He was in the
third car, and his hat was found
among the mass of broken timber.
Richard Trenchard, a Brighton ma
chinist, and his wife, are both dead.
Conductor Kelley, of the Pennsylvania
train, had both legs and arms broken
and was internally injured. Albert J.
Mosebach, Philadelphia, was on the
Reading train. He escaped unhurt.
The excursion train was made up of
fifteen cars, the foremost of which was
a baggage car. This and the next two
coaches caught the full force of the
crash, and were utterly demolished.
What remained of the third car was
tumbled into a ditch at the roadside.
The responsibility for the accident
cannot be fixed.
A SCESE OF HORROR.
An Associated Press Reporter De
scribes the Wreck.
Charles C. Rynick, of Bridgeton, who
was in the excursion party, was in one
of the rear cars. He escaped with se
vere bruises, and, so far as his agita
tion would permit, told the story of
his experience. "When we saw that a
collision was unavoidable," he said,
"the scene in our car was terrific.
Women fainted and men rushed in
mad panic to the door. But it came
almost before we knew it. The third
car was cut right in two, and the low
er portion of it lifted bodily from the
track and tumbled over. Every car
was crowded, and it Is horrible to
think of the numbers who must be
lying under those ruins. The roof of
one of the cars fell in as a- mass, and
everybody in that car was buried un
der it. It simply dropped in on the
people. I know many of those aboard,
but I will hope for the best. I know
positively of two in our car who were
' killed. They were Mr. and Mrs. Frank
i Bell, of Bridgeton. Their daughter
; was in another car further back and
was not hurt. I don't know who is to
: blame. I think there must have been
| fully 80 or 100 killed. The only person
with me was my six-year-old son, and
1 he was not hurt, thank God."
An Associated Press reporter was on
j one of the first relief trains sent out
by the Pennsylvania railroad and was
the first reporter on the scene.
The train was in charge of a num
i ber of railroad officials, and Prosecutor
Perry, of Atlantic county, and it drew
up a few feet this side of the fatal
point. The scene was wildly pictu
i resque. Canopied by a star-lit sky,
j with a blood-red moon almost at the
, full, shining in the far background,
j' and the brilliant maze of lights glim
mering from the city beyond, the gai
ety of which has been suddenly
eclipsed by the most awful catastrophe
j in its history. Staggering in and out
of ditches, and stumbling over masses
of broken timber, with only a few fit
ful lanterns to help their straining
eyes, the rsculng gang set bravely to
work. Axes and shovels were plied
with the greatest vigor, and almost at
every half-dozen strokes a mangled
! form was brought up and laid tenderly
on the waiting pallets. It was a gigan
tic and sickening task, and the strong-
I est men turned aside, faint from the
j revelation of the work of the spades.
! A heap of blood-stained timbers turned
i aside by one of the rescuers brought to
; sight a woman's arm. It had been
: wrenched off almost by the roots, and
i nothing remained but a dripping
stump. Even the hand was gone. It
had been clad in a dainty white linen
| sleeve, part of which still clung to it.
Not five minutes later a chance blow
from a pick revealed a still more
ghastly remnant, a human heart, that
| only a few short hours before had been
i throbbing with life and love. One wo
i man, whose body was recovered, still
j held in her hand a plate bearing a
I picture of Atlantic City. It was un
-1 broken. Scattered about the ground
j near the wreck were many pieces of
| clothing, which had been torn from
I the bodies of the victims, hats, dainty
! parasols, fans and gloves.
Just as one of the relief trains
reached the Pennsylvania depot with
its terrible load, one man who laid in
a corner horribly injured, regained his
senses for a moment, and, clasping his
hand to his head, cried In heartrending
j agony: "Who did this? My God,
\ where are my wife and children?"

ROME, July 30.— Father Martinelli,
supervisor-general of the Augustinians,
has been appointed successor to Mgr.
Satolli, as papal delegate to the Roman
Catholic church in the United States.
WASHINGTON, July 30.— When the
news of the appointment of Father
Martinelli was comunicated to Cardi
nal Satolli this afternoon he paid trib
ute to the great esteem in which the
supervisor general is held. The cardi
nal is without official advices as to the
appointment of a successor to himself,
and regards it as unlikely that the ap
pointment would be made at this time.
Father Martinelli has not been men
tioned in the gossip that has centered
about the successorship to Mgr. Sa
Rumors have been rife during the
past few weeks as to the possible suc
cessor to Cardinal Satolli and the
names of Mgr. Lorenzelli, the internun
cio at The Hague, and Mgr. Falconlo,
titular archbishop of Aconzia, Italy,
have been persistently mentioned In
I this connection. Father Martinelli,
however, is regarded as an available
candidate and is credited with sufficient
executive ability. He has been con
nected in various capacities with the
j order of the Augustinians almost all
: his life. He was born over fifty years
ago, and immediately after his gradu
ation from the scholastic institutions
of the Catholic church, in which he
was placed, joined the Augustinians.
For a time he was attached in a con
sulting capacity to one of the congre-
I gations at Rome. He rose rapidly in,
i authority and several years ago was
given the appointment to the office he
now holds. As superior general he has
charge of the interests of a council
which assists in the administration of
the affairs of the organization. Father
Martinelli has visited this country only
once. That was about two years ago.
In the course of a of several
months he visited the apostolic dele
gate's residence and the Augustinian
i bodies Jn Washington, Philadelphia and
a number of other cities.
Archbishop Ireland said he had re
ceived no other notification of the nom
ination of a successor to Cardinal Sa
tolli than the above dispatch. He said
ho had high esteem for Father Marti
nelli, who was a man of great intel
kctual endowments. The new delegate
speaks French and English fluently,
Archbishop Ireland says, and this will,
of course, be greatly to his advantage
— an advantage that Cardinal Satolli
did not possess.

CANTON, 0., July 30.— Perhaps the
most enthusiastic delegation that has
yet come to Canton arrived here from
Knoxville, a suburb of Pittsburg, at 1
o'clock this afternoon. They had trav
eled iOO miles in heat and and storm,
but were enthusiastic with bands and
banners. T.heir spokesman was John P.
Everhard. president of the McKinley
and Hobart club, and who is also pres
ident of the glass workers' union. He
put the tariff issue above all others. In
part he said:
"We belive in bimetallism and we
recognize in the Republican party and
its plaform the only real true and safe
advocate of that policy, namely, the
use of both gold and silver as money;
each interchangeable with the other;
each dollar as good as every other
dollar. We do not and we feel assured
that you do not, believe in monomet
allism, or the use cf either gold or sil
ver as the only money, and knowing
this, we know you will and must op
pose the visionary ideas of those who
would seek to create value by the legis
lative fiat of this nation alone and the
attempts of those who seek to place ua
upon the single silver basis thereby
driving our gold out of circulation and
out of the country."
After a storm cf applause which fol
lowed Maj. McKinley's appearance, he
said in part:
"You are right, Mr. Spokeman, in
saying that the Republican party
stands now. as it has always stood
for a sound and stable currency and
for the maintenance of all its money of
every kind at parity and always equal
to the best money of the most civilized
nations of the earth (applause.). A de
preciated currency, as you have so well
said, would work disaster to the inter
ests of the people and to none more
than those cf the workingmen and pro
ducers. Long years ago Daniel Web
ster said that they were the first to
feel it and the last to recover from it.
QUOTES DANIEL WEBSTER.
"'A disordered currency,' said he 'i 3
fatal to industry, frugality and econo
my. It fosters the spirit of specula
tion and extravagance. It is the most
effectual of inventions to fertilize the
rich man's fields with the sweat of the
poor man's brow.'
"That which we call money, my fel
low citizens, and with which values are
measured and settlements made must
be as true as the bushel which meas
ures the grain of the farmer and as
hcnest as the hours of labor which the
man who toils is required to give rioud
applause). The one must be as full
and complete and as honest as the oth
er (applause). Qur currency today is
good— all of it as good as gold— and it
is the unfaltering determination of the
Republican party to so keep and main
tain it forever (cheers). It is the duty
of the people of this country to stand
unitedly against every effort to de
grade our currency or debase our cred
it.^ (Cries 'They will.')
"They must unite now, as they have
united in the past, in every great
crisis of our country's history. When
the country seemed wildly bent on in
flation preceding the resumption of
specie payment, the sober sense of the
American people, without regard to
party, united and stemmed that threat
ened tide of irredeemable paper money
and repudiation, and placed and kept
the nation on the rock of public honor
sound finance and honest currency" '
In closing his speech Maj. MeKinley
discussed the tariff and declared that a
change in the present revenue bill was
essential to the welfare of the country.
