Four Train Takes a Sixty-Foot Flunge
at Danville. Ills., Causing One Death
Four Drowned in Maine Railway Cross
Cleveland, Aug. :. Train No. 9 of the
Lake Shore railroad left here for Chicago
on time. The train was composed of
three coaches, three baggage cars and five
6leepers. It left Fremont, O., ten minutes
late and was running at a high rate of
speed for Toledo. When the train wa9
about ten miles out of Fremont at a small
station called Lindsey the sleeping cars
left the track and crashed Into a freight
train that was waiting on a siding for the
passengers train to pas. The first part of
the train got by in safety, but the sleeping
cars rolled over the ties some distance,
finally swerved from their course and hit
the engine of the freight train with
Five Victims Dead or Will Iie.
Tht sleeping cars were practically re
duced to kindling-wood ami that any one
escaped is a miracle. .The iol'.owing per
sons were killed outright: 11. Lafferty,
engineer of the fie.ght train. Elyria. O.j
Charles Spaine. brakeman of the freight
train, Clayville, N. Y.; Kobcrtsnn,
porter of the sleeping car "Buffalo."
The following were seriously injured:
Professor li. H. Emerson, of Amherst col
lege, Gloucester, Mass., will die; Pel-
monn.porter of the sleeping car Orinoco,"
will die, residence unknown; J. B. Hamil
ton, l'ittsbnrg. Pa., injured internally;
Bruno Knifiier, Clevth.ud, O., injured
about the head; A. H. West, Chicago;
- Stevens, porter, residence not known;
.Tames Ryan, center fielder of the Chicago
base ball club, badly cut about the head
and body; M. Kittredge, catcher Chicago
base ball club, badly cut about tha head.
A score Slightly Hurt.
When the traiu crew and citizens of the
little town began to remove the wreckage
to release the injured and recover the dead
their efforts were expedited by the groans
that came from all parts of the debris.
Many people were buried in the wreck and
were not seriously injured. Their hurts
consisted principally of bruises and
scratches, and it was not. a hard task to
free them from the beams that held them
to the earth. They were taken care of by
the town physicians and were ready to re
sume their journey by the time the train
started on us way again to Toledo. Per
haps fifteen or twenty were more or less
hurt 4n that way whose names were not
given to the local authorities. Deeper n
the wreck were the dead and more serious
ly hurt, irnd it was many hours before the
former -were recovered, :t requiring s
wrecking crew to do this.
The Unlucky Base Iiit.ll riayers.
The injured fared better, but when Prof.
Emerson and the porter, Pelmonn, were
found it was evident that the physicians
could not help them. Emerson s chest was
fearfully crushed. The members of the
Chicago Base Ball club were in the Cleve
land sleeper, which was the last on tho
train, and to that fact they owe much of
their immunity from more serious injury.
As it was, Kyan, the center fielder of the
club, and Kittredge, the lest catcher, were
cut badly and bled profusely. Other mem
bers of the team were bruise t and cut, but
not so as to interfere with the continuance
of their journey.
Siireatlinc Rails Once More.
A snecial train left Toledo soon after the
report of the accident with the Lake Shore
officials on board to mate a tuorougn ex
amination of the track and ascertain what
caused the wreck. The only theory given
is that the rails spread and let the heavy
sleeping cara through to the ties. The re
mainder of the train tiassea tne oaa spot
in safety, but the sleepers were well filled
with neonle bound lor tne w oriu s lair,
and the added weight was too much for
the poor spot in the track.

DAXYIU.E, Ills., Aug. ".A wreck that
will cost the Big Four railroad over $100,
000 occurred here. An east bound freight
train broke in two, and while it was being
coupled together on the iron bridge over

freieht train came arongd the sharp curve
to the west of the bridge and a tremendous
collision occurred. Ihe shock knocked
two spans of the bridge off the piers into
the river, sixty-three feet below. . Engine
532 and twenty-eight cars, composing the
second train, and four cars of the first
train, went down with the bridge. All of
the crew of the first train succeeded in
getting ont of the way before the trains
Engineer Daniel O'Connor, of the sec
ond train, jumped off his engine before
the bndge was reached. He was unfor
tunate enough to land on a barbed wire
fence and was severely scratched, but re'
ceived no sorious injuries. His fireman
Frank Flannegan, went down with the
engine. In some miraculous way be
cleared the wreck and w found wading
around in the water in a nearly uncon
scions condition. He is not seriously hurt.

and has severe internal injuries. Head
Brakeman Stone lies buried at the bot
tom of the wreck. A tramp bricklayer
