and Chicago express on the L:ike Shore rail
railroad, due hero from the west at 8:&5 p.
m., broke in two at Bay View station, about
six miles from this city last nilit. The two
sections came together and a terrible wreck
resulted. All attempts to get any of the
facts from the railway officials were fruit
less. The railroad company sent a train out
from here with surgeons and wreckers, but
refused t. allow reporters ou board. One
reporter smuggled himself in as s-..-i -let to
a surgeon. Reporters were obliged to go to
the scene by horse aud boggy, ilms greatiy
delaying news of the accident.
How the Wreck Occurred.
The train was running at a high rate of
speed to make up lost lime when the break
occurred i he front part of the train, con
sisting of the engine, tender, smoker, and
two day coaches, was quickly brought to a
stop. The rear portion, consisting of five
heavy Pullman cars, crime down grade at
full speed and dashed into the second day
coach. The coach was thrust upward by
the greater weight of the Pullmans and lies
on toy of the Pullman Tho Pullmans tele
scoped tlie first day coach. Tbe day coaches
were full ol pasengrers.
The Coupling Declared Defective.

as the traiu was leaving Cleveland. At 12:30
o'clock a relief train was made up, and ten

Conductor Houghtaling. who pulled tbe bell
rope. Most of those in the last ro&tfc. were
