of them declared that any one whom

A. Mitchell Palmer. : nother close

from New York due to arrive at Corn?
ing at 4.47 a. m.. composed of two
engine.*, a baggage car, three Full
mans and two day coaches, in the or?
der named, was demolished at Glb
?on, three miles east of Corning, at
5.25 o'clock this morning by express
train No. 11. due at Corning at 5.10
a. m. Forty-one persons were killed
and between 50 and 60 were injured.
Many of the victims were holiday ex?
cursionists bound to Niagara Falls,
who had boarded the train at points
along the line.
The wreck was the worst in the
history of the road. Its cause, accord?
ing to Engineer Schroeder of the ex?
press, was the failure to see signals
set against his train. The morning
was foggy and he said he could not
make them out.
The wrecked train stood on the
main track blocked by a crippled
freight train. There was no flag out.
according to engineer Schroeder,
The signals which he declared It was
too foggy to see, were just around a
curve. The flying express plunged
past them and crashed Into the rear
of No. 9. bringing death to nearly
two score of its passengers.
