What Was tlin Mutter With the Block?
The accident happened At half an hour
after midnight; it was over an hour before
any news of it reached any outside point.
It came by a messenger who walked into
Long Island City. The railroad company
Immediately despatched a relief train with
all the physicians obtainable. They found
au appalling slate of affairs. The Man
hattan Beach train has beeii&tanding in
the block to allow another tr .n ahead to
get a safe distance. The Rocs' way Beach
train came dashing along behind, ran into
the same block and crashed into the rear
end of the Manhattan Beach train. Both
were crowded with excursionists and both
were the last trains from their respective
VICTIMS IMPALED ON TIMBERS.
Fright Mil Death of Nome of the Passengers
Horrors of the Scene.
There were five cars in the Manhattan
Beach train, all of them open cars. The
Kockaway train ploughed its way com
pletely through the two tear cars and part
ly wrecked the third. Passengers in the
three cars were maimed and mangled
horribly and their shrieks of terror and
pain wers awful. The KockaA-ay engine's
boiler resembled a pin cushion from the
timbers of the wrecked cars sticking into
it. Upon these timbers were human
beings impaled, some dead and others
ga-puig their last. High upon the
top lay the dead body of a man.
Upon one of the timbers was im
paled the body of Mrs. Oscar Dietzel.
Upon another was the body of Sidney
Weinstein, a boy of 13 years.
The scene of the wreck was indescrib
ably horrible. The dead and wounded
were massed among the wreckage, beside,
upon and beyond the tracks. Everything
Was bhowered with the blood of the dead
And wounded, and t lie cries of the latter rose
high above tiie hissing of the steam and
the calls of the frantic trainmen. The
Manhattan Bench train was just pulling
out of the block when the crasn came and
had just began to move When Kngiueer
Donaldson heard and felt the accident he
threw open his lever and made all speed
for Ing island City, leaving the three
wrecked cars behind him. The Hockaway
Beach train escaped disaster so far as pas
sengers were concerned; none being badly
When the crash came passengers were
throw n head over heels over their seats.
Men made for the doors. The women were
crushed behind them. The people in one
car owe their lives, or at least their whole
akins, to two uniformed policemen. The
policemen jumped into the doorways and
cried: "Keep still! Keep still, boys; if you
are going to get it you'll get. it anyway."
The otlicers had a great light to keep the
The killing of Colonel E. A. Buck, the
editor of the bpirit of the Times, was
especially pathetic. He was returning
from the beach with his son and Dr.
Knapp, of New York. The son was thrown,
torn and bleeding out upon the embank
inent. Colonel Buck was so badly hurt
that he gasped a few times and died.
General manager E. K. Iteynolds and Su
perintendent W. H. Blood were at the
acene early. They stated that tho cause
of the accident was still unknown; that it
was a ques;ion of veracity between Tower
Switchman Nutt and Engineer Concrite,
of the Hockaway train. The latter bad
reported that a heavy fog prevailed at the
time, which was true. He also declared
that the signals were set at safety, indi

And the Mayor Shuts Down on Proces

Close have for His Life Carter Harri
son Takes the Platform and Leaves the
Crowd In Good Humor Threatening Sit
uation at Weir City.
Chicago. Aug. 2S The unemployed who
have been parading the streets for several
days and making demonstrations on the
Itke front, had a short and sharp battle
with the police near the City hall. A
crowd of them came west from Wabash av
nueand stopped cable and street car traffic.
At this moment a buggy was capsized by
accident on Washington street, and at
Clark street a cab tried to g. t through the
line. The men in the parade jrmped upon
it, and it was only by plying his whip
vigorously that the driver got through.
Then a mail wagon was delayed, but one
policeman by the free use of his club got
that through the line. The next thing
was a buggy, and that was capsized. Then
the police charged and a pitched battle en
sued. The men used sticks and stones,
while the policemen plied their clubs.
The Battle Was a Short One.
Of course there was a great crowd in a
moment. Thousands rushed to the scene,
making the task more dillicult for the po
lice, who came in from all directions in
reply to a summons quickly sent out The
battle did not last ever minute aud the pV
Jice, although bruised and battered, came
Two men were arrested. They were
both Poles and gave their names as Jo
seph Wanzl and Michael Harowitz. The
latter when arrested was wild with ex
citement and vowed that he would have
blood. In his pocket was found a murderous-looking
revolver and a bos of car
tridges. As soon us Harowitz was arrest
ed a crowd of his friends rushed to rescue
him, but were beaten back by the po
lice. Kallied to Their Officer's Rescue.
Inspector Ross, of the Central detail, was
severely beaten by a portion of the mob
and would have been killed but for the
activity of his men, who rallied around the
prostrate officer and beat back the en
raged men with their clubs. The mob
finally scattered aud several hundred of
the men found their way into the build
ings occupied by the labor unions, where
they consulted in an angry manner. As
patrol wagons tore by loaded with blue
coats the mutterings broke into loud out
cries and bitter tnreats. "We will have
guns the next time," said one, a red-faced,
poorly dressed man, and the bystanders
cheered the murderous utterance.
Street Parades Forbidden.
Mayor Harrison has ordered all street
parades stopped. The parade was pre
ceded by a meeting on the lake front and
there the mob finally reassembled. Speech
making was begun, but the words were
drowned by shouts and cheers. About 4
o'clock Mayor Harrison pushed his way
through the crowd to the speaker's stand.
He addressed the gathering, and save for
the fiw hisses and disrespectful remarks
of the more deserate element was not in
terrupted. He explaiued to the men that
they were in no worse cirt un-fr ances than
thousands of others all over the country
aud implored them to go back to their
homes aud manfully endure their present
temporary misfortune. When he had
finished speaking he was cheered by the
