Sulphur Sprinigs, Mo.-Failure of an
engineer to hood a block signal eaused
the rear-end collision on the Missouri-.
Pacific here in which 38 person1l were
killed and about 137 injured,' 25 so
riously, according to John Cannon, as
Blatant general manager of the road.
Train No. 4, afast passenger ves
tibule steel train, running at full speed
crashed into No. 32, a local, composed
of five wooden day coaches, a bag
gage and express car, as the engine
was taking on water with the coaches
stretching back on a trestle over G.1ase
The impact hurled two of the local
coaches down a 50-foot embankment
edging the Mississippi, and telescoped
four other coaches, crushing a number
of passengers to death in their seats.
Both trains were behind thie, the fast
passenger running from Fort Worth,
Texas, to St. Louis, carrying 180 pas
sengers and the local 100 persons.
According to Mr. Cannon, Matt
("Ginger") Glenn, of St. Louis, engi
neer of the fast passenger, failed to
heed a block signal warning him the
track was not clear. Glenn, 57 years
old, an engineer for 35 years without
a black mark against his record, was
killed, when he jumped from his cabin
.just before the crash. Edward -Tins

remained at his post and was seriously
Engineer Glenn, shortly before ar
riving at Sulphur Springs, received or
ders on the "run" to pull over on a
siding at Cliff Cave, ten miles north
of here, to allow "Sunshine Special
No. 1," en route from St. Louis 'to
Texas points, to pass, and, Mr. Can
non explained, the engineer failed to
heed the signal because lie apparently
was reading these orders when ht
passed the block.
Ghouls appeared on the scene very
shortly after the crash and robbed the
dead and dying., Only one was ar
rested, and he said he was William
Hall, of St. Louis. Several pieces of
wearing apparel taken from the unfor

The little village of 50 inhabitants
was ulnable to enre for the injutred and
they, along with the dead, were taken
to St. Louis and Do Soto. Dr. W. WV.
