about 1:30 this morning. Fortunately,
no one was hurt and the damage was
Both trains were westbound. The
Golden State had the right of way. In
spite of this, the switch was thrown
and the Milwaukee train started to pull
out onto the tracks that both roadf
use between Davenport and Musca
tine. Just at this juncture the Golden
State hove in sight, running about 2o
miles an hour. Owing to the fog that
prevailed, the engineer could net see
the signal till too near to entirely
avoid a collision, but he succeeded in
reducing the momentum of his train
so that when the crash came it was
light and the passengers got off wit!
nothing worst than a slight jarring.
Several of the freight cars were turn
ed over on their sides and the tract
was blocked for some time. The Rock
Island train kept the rails, though the
engine was slightly damaged, as was
the baggage car. Another engine an
iggage car were secured from this
side of the river and as sixm as the
track was opened the train proceeded
on its way.
