Fifty-Seven Lives Lost la a Wreck

Atlantic City, N. J. A railroad
accident that was even worse than
the Meadow wreck of July 30, 189G,
sent about 67 people to a sudden death
Sunday afternoon, catching them like
rats in a trap. The cars of the 1:30
electric train of the West Jersey &
Seashore railroeid lines, duo here at
2:30 Jumped the track on the trestle
bridge over the Thoroughfare and be
fore any one could get out they were
hurled to a watery grave. The tres

and the, drop to the water reqtilrsd
several seconds, giving time for the
passengers, men, women and children
to see and calculate their fate.
Forty-four bodies were rerovered tip

to 1 o'clock Monday morning and the
wrecking train Is now at work trying to
hoist the submerged cars from the
water, whore fully 70 dead bodies must
be entombed. The accident was due
to a rail "turning in." It appears
that the rail which was an outside one
on the right hand side coming down
must have been out of plumb about an
eighth of an Inch. The sharp flange
pf the electric train caught this and
twisted It Inward?. Had it spread In
stead of twisting Inwards the accident
never would have happened. This
twist threw the first car off the track
and Into tho water. The result was
that the second and third cars were
dragged with it and while the third
car was descending, the rear portion
struck a piece of the abutment, hun;
for a short time and then slid Into the
A number of men and a few women
leaped out of windows and the rear

hold of a post and were rescued. It was
stated that fully 80 to 100 passengers

Washington. D. C Under a rulinsr
of the Interstate comerce commis
sion, transportation over railroad
lines no longer may be given to news
paper publishers or editors la ex
change for advertising space.
A protest against this ruling has
been received from the Massachu
setts Press association, which savs
that the association unanimously
voted to "enter Its protest against the
reported ruling in holding that tho
payment for ra'lroad transportation
at full rates In advertising shall be
treated on any other basis than that
of transportation paid for in cash."
In response to the protest. Chair
man Knapp, of the commission, says
"You are aware, of course, that all
tariffs filed In compliance with the
regulating statute nnmo rates In
dollars and cents, and do not in any
case provldo that transirtatlon can
be paid for with property. It sVriis
plain to tho commission that the law !
above quoted coupled with the fact
stated permits payment for services
of interstate carriers only In money.
"This ruling of tho commission In
no way interferes with or abridges
tho rights of private contracts. News
papers and their advertising spare
may be freely exchanged for any spe
cies of property upon such terms as
may be acceptable to the parties to
the transaction. Rut the facilities of
the public carrier are not private
property, nor are they subject to
bargain and sale like merchandise.
Tho right to travel or have property
carried by rati, like tie right to the
common highway, is not a coutrax-t
right, but a political right, the very
essence of which Is its equality."
