CHICAGO, July ft. "Streeter's original
rnilrond collision" took place Saturday at
Cicero at 4:51 p. ni. While it 'lasted it
was exciting enough for the most juded
nerves. Two locomotives, fairly vibrat
ing under their steam pressures, dashed
headlong at each other on a piece of level
track at more than race horse speed. For
a few moments there was suspense, then
camo a dull roar, a leaping of Iron giants
Into the air, swirl of black ami brown
dust, curtaining everything, a burst of
hissing steam and all was over. This
untquo siMvtacle a Chicago genius devised
to drivo away t nmri brought more than
20,(XM people to the canvas-walled oblong
on the Ridgcland branch of the Chicngo
and Northern Pncific.
The collision took place 350 feet from
the spectators and unlike, tho C olumbus,
O.. show no one was hurt. hen the lo.
romotives struck their forward trucks left
their pivots and tlew forward, smashing
tho cowcatchers: between them. The
boilers fell to one side, forming an angle in
tho since of which the trucks remained,
practically on tho truck. The body of ono
tender, leaving its platform under a
freight car that telescoped It, slid up
around tho holler of its engine. The driv
ing wheels of that engine remained true
to their fastenings mid buried themselves
in the dirt on one side and projectinghigh
in the air on the other. Where the cab of
either engine went is one of the mysteries
of tho collision.
The tender of the second engine turned
on its side, met the freight car behind it
and the two formed an A, the iron and
wood of both being liadly smashed. The
platform of the tender broke in two, and
the two trucks piled one tipou the other
very neatly. Hack of them a truck of the
freight ear was stood ou end. 1 he cars
were arranged in cig-xng fashion, ono
thrown to the right, th next to the left,
the third to tho right, and In some cases

wheels, although it did not injure the
track nt any point. All tho cars except

of little Sadie Buxton, and with brutal as

the girl's father, mother and elder sister
during the night of May 25, at the home
of the Buxtons near Gaithersburg, was
lynched before daylight Saturday morn

overcame the jailor and forced him to
surrender the keys to tho jail. The negro
protested his innocence of the crime to the
last. This makes the second Jynchlng in
Maryland within two weeks, Joseph Cock

murdering his wife, having been killed by
a mob a short time ago.
The Mob Appears at the Jail.
About 2:30 o'clock in tho morning
Charles H. M. Peyton, jailer of Montgom
ery county, was aroused from his sleep by
loud rappings at the front door of the jail.
hen he inquired who was there he was
told to open the door to receive a prisoner.
Ho did so and found confronting him a
mob of twenty or thirty masked men. He
quickly slammed the door in their faces
ond locked it. only to have it broken down
a few minutes later. Tho crowd rushed
in end demanded that he unlock tho cell
doors. Meeting a refusal they leveled re
volvers at Peyton's head and directed him
to hand over his keys, which he did
Negro Fought for Ht Life.
The affair . was well planned, for the
mob proceeded at once to Randolph's cell.
The negro was an exceedingly powerful
man, over six feet tall and muscular.
There must have been a hard struggle to
secure him, tho cell floor being covered
with bloody marks. Prisoners in adjoin
in; cells say that he strongly protested
his innocence and begged for his life. The
mob gave no heed to these pleadings, but
gagged him and then dragged him to a
vehiele in waiting and drove out of town.
A hangman s knot was tied around the
negro's neck and soon afterwards his
lifeless body was swinging from a con
The First Crime Committed.
On the morning of Mny 26 all Maryland
within fifty miles of Washington was
startled by news that during the night
one or more intruders had entered tho
house of Mr. Buxton, a miller of Gaithers
burg, and had murderously assaulted the
head of tho household, his wife and two
daughters with an ax while they were
asleep. H was feared all four might die,
but though terribly injured all recovered
save the youngest daughter. Suspicion
pointed to Sidney Randolph, a negro who
was found near Gaithersburg unable to
give a satisfactory account of himself.
Authorities Were Fully Warned.
It was supposed ho had been instigated
to the deed by a companion named N'eal,
just released from the penitentinry,whither
ho had been sent chiefly through testi
mony given by Buxton, whoso life he had
threntened. Xcal, however, could not be
connected with thecrimeaiid was released,
while Randolph was committed to jail to
await trial, a coroner's jury having found
that Sadio Buxton came to her death from
blows inllictcd by an axe in Randolph's
hands; and that some one unknown was
accessorv to the deed. There had been
frequent threats to lynch both Xeal and
naving neen stabbed in the abdomen and
Bowman both stabbed and shot. It is
believed that both will die. .
The following were seriously wounded:
Jacob Cohen, of New York, shot through
the right knee and thigh; Harris Ran,
scalp wound and cuts on face; Jacob Sun
shine, sabre cuts on the head and Ladly
bruised on face and body ; Henry Wessels,
special deputy sheriff, stabbed in right
hand and cut about head and face; Frank
Ban Don, special deputy sheriff, of Mas
peth, sabre cuts alout head and hands,
dangerously wounded. Kight men were
badly injured, including two probably fa

wounds attended to by hospital surgeons.

Rcssellville, Ky., July 6. A deadly
fight took place near Adairville Saturday
morning. Dick Younger went to town
drunk. - As he rode out of town he fired
his pistol. H. H. Harmon, the town mar
shal, jumped on a horse and started after
Younger. An hour later both men were
found dead about one mile from the town.
Both had been shot through the heart,
and only one chamber in each revolver
had been discharged. .
There were no witnesses. Willinm
Younger, a brother of Dick, was killed in
Adairville by Dates Patterson four years
ago. The Youngers were relatives of the
famous outlaws Harmon killed two men
in Tennessee several years ago. He was
the only man the town of Adairville has
had for years who could keep order.

Baltimore, July 6. A riot occurred at
a colored picnic at Loch Haven, near this
city, Saturday night. The sheriff at
tempted to arrest a negro named Butler
who had drawn a revolver on a companion.
Without a moment's warning about fifty
colored men charged the sheriff and his
deputies, beating them and hurling stones

into the crowd and wounded six, oue ser
iously. Many arrests were made.

Talk of Indulging in the Lynch Business
on Their Own Account.
Wasiiixgtos, July 6. A special to The
Post from Rockville, Md., says: The ex
citement caused by the lynching of the
negro, Sydney Randolph, Saturday, which
had almost entirely died out, was stirred
to a high pitch last night when it became
rumored that the colored people in the
vicinity of Gaithersburg had organized a
partv and were coming to Rockville to
Ivnch R. Li Buxton, the lather of the
Buxton family that was assaulted. As
soon as the authorities here were apprised
of this rumor steps were taken to prevent
a recurrence of the events of Saturday.
The deputy sheriff quickly informed a
number of the citizens that their services
might !e needed, and then told Buxton of
his danger, advising him to leave on the
next train for Washington. Buxton
seemed quite nervous and excited, but pro
tested against going to Washington. Ar
rivals from Gaithersburg stated that the
rumor of the Intended outbreak among the
negroes Bad reached them, and that
party of 200 men had been armed and put
on their guard.
They informed Buxton that if he would
accompany them bacK to uaitncrsburg
thev weuld guarantee to protect him.
Buxton went to Gaithersburg, where he
spent the night with friends, guarded by
sMe-lxxlied men. There is no doubt that
