An Appalling Railway V Disaster

HOLOCAUST OF INJURED SURVIVORS
A Rear End Collision Kills and Muti

Uon and Make the Horror More II or
' rlble Dreadful Death of a Woman ia
Fall Sight of the Ilelpleaa Spectators
An Awful Scene at the Wreck, Which
Almost ltlvals the Ashtabula 'Disaster
In Its Terrible Details Indications ot
a Blunder by Somebody Nineteen
Dead and Twenty-one Wounded.
Ravenna, O., July lOneof the most
appalling railway accidents that ever hap
pened in this state, almost rivalling the
Ashtabula horror, took place yesterday
morning at 8 o'clock on the New York,
Lake Erie and Western railway. Not con
tent with the awful work of the collision
which mangled and slaughtered a car load
of passengers, the angel of death called to
his service the fire fiend, and those pinned
in the debris were quickly roasted, their
screams of agony and despair chilling the
blood in the hearts of those who stood
near willing to aid and succor but utterly
powerless. One woman could be seen by
the appalled spectators as the flames sure
ly made their way to and over her living
body, in spite of almost herculean efforts
to releaso her, continued until the heat
was absolutely unbearable by the would-be
The Story of the Horror.
The east-bound Erie vestibule No. 8, due
at Youngstown at 2:55 a. m., was very
late, and was running on orders. When
a stop was made at Ravenna the engin
eer and fireman cf the passenger train
went to work to repair the engine, and
the train was again detained several min
utes. A flagman was stut back,- but went
only a few feet, at most two car lengths.
Suddenly around the curve, west of the
city, came train No. 82, composed of
Swift's meat cars. The train was running
twenty-five miles an hour, and coming
down a heavy grade.
Thought He Had a Clear Track.
Tho engineer supposed he had a clear
track, and, it being a through train, he
was not expected to stop at Ravenna. He
called for brakes, and reversed his engine,
but all to no purpose. On came the
freight train, with but 6lightly decreased
6peed, and no word of warning could be
given the people in the doomed train. A
few feet west of the station the engineer
and fireman jumped, alighting safely. A
moment more the heavy freight crashed
into the passenger train.
Clear Through Two Coaches.
For a moment after there was the
silence of death, and then commenced the
most frightful cries ever heard. The
moans of the dying, the piteous cries for
help from , the imprisoned and helpless
passengers, and the mutilated and bloody
remains of the dead seen through the
fragments of the debris formed a Bcene of
horror no pen can picture. The freight
engine had gone clear through a day
coach in the rear, through the Eleeper and
buried itself in the second sleeper, the
third car of the train. There was nothing
left of the train but a mass of debris, and
the sides of the third car stood above the
monster engine as if to hold it prisoner
and prevent further damage.
The Demon of the Flames.
The scene lasted but a moment, when
little tongues of flame sprang up here and
there, and soon the whole wreck was
wrapped in fire. It was a dreadful sight.
Two scores of imprisoned passengers in
the debris, the flames lighting up the
place with a lurid glare, served only to in
tensify the horror without aiding the res
cuers. As soon as the dazed passengers in
the other cars recovered themselves they
rushed to the rescue of their unfortuate
companions. The Are department was im
mediately telephoned for, and every one in
that end of the little city rushed to the
scene of the disaster.
DEATH'S HARVEST OF CORPSES.
Names of the Killed and Injured A
As soon as the flames were subdued the
work of recovering the bodies was begun,
and it was a gruesome work. . Every one
recovered was a charred and almost un
recognizable mass. There were nineteen
of them, as follows: John Coyle, David
Relihan, Fred Burns, John Griffin, Fred
Duff, Owen Harpiman, Dennis Ryan, Pat
rick Ryan, Dennis Cassidy, Albert Oun
thrup, John Dennen, Henry Gildea, T. No
lan, Thomas Kievclle, and William New
comb all of Corning, N. Y., aud married;
William Kane, aged 14, of Brooklyn; John
Kimball, of Findlay, and a woman and a
child who have not yet been identified.
The Liat ot Injured.
The list of injured, all of whom are from
Corning, N. Y., and unmarried, is as fol
lows: George Smith, leg fractured; John
Codogan, bruised about the hips, back
and head; H. C. DeGroff, head, neck and
shoulders bruised; James McGill, slight
internal injuries; John Keating, cut about
the head; A. C. Jones, severe cuts; C.
Ilcilly, cuts about the head; Tom Hanley
severely cut about the face, head and
shoulders; Joseph Mangan, : legs bruised
and back injured, in a serious condition;
Jonas Clark, bruised and cut; J. McAvoy,
bruised about the head; A. 1L Humphrey,
hands . and face . burned; ' . John
O'Hara, arms bruised; J. Durkkin, face
cut and bruised; Patrick Ryan, cousin of
Patrick Ryan, who was killed, slightly
injured; David Strlckler, legs cut; M.
Young, bruised about the bead and shoul
ders; M. Mosier, bands burned; W. Gun
thrup, whose brother was killed, burned
about the head and face; V. C. Jones,
slightly bruised; F. Shaw, contusions of
the face and burns. '
All of the injured left for their homes
in Corning, N. Y., during the day, vith
the exception of Joseph Morgan and Thos.
Harley, who are very seriously injured,
and are under the physician's care.
A Woman's Awful Fate.
During the progress of the flames such
rucnes were witnessed as made the ; blood
run cold. One poor woman was seen pin
l9oed in the wreck, though but slightly
hurt, whose piteous appeals for help will
utrrr te) forsrotten by those who heard
I 1 I ; " '
them. The flames had not yet reached,
but were slowly nearing her. Strong and
willing hands swung axes as they were
never swung before. On crept the flames. It
was a battle between life and death, and
death was gaining. The heat was becoming
more intense every instant. Men whe
were no longer able to withstand the
flames gave place to others with the rapid
ity of lightning. But it was a uselesi
Forced to Abandon Her.
The choppers had to fall back and aban
don the woman to her fate. In a moment
the flames caught her dress and instantly
leaped to her head. Her piteous cries ol
"Save me save me,' as the flames envel
oped her - form, and the expression oi
agony on her face, as 'she sank down in
the debris, caused the stoutest hearts to
grow sick with horror. How many more
such frightful tragedies, though unseen,
were enacted within the ruins in those
brief moments will ever be known. With
the woman was a child about a year old,
which also perished, having been killed by
Mangled Masses of Flesh and Hone.
When the great '. freight locomotive
plowed through the rear coach it mangled
into unrecognizable masses of flesh and
bones several of the passengers. Theif
deaths, horrible though, they were, were
easy compared to that of some of their
friends. When the locomotive had come
to a standstill five ' forms were seen to be
pinioned between the head of the boiler
and the torn and twisted timbers of the
coach.. Two. were undoubtedly, dead or
unconscious, but the other three weakly
swayed their bodies and waved their hands
in an agonizing endeavor to free them
selves from their frightful position. The
flames soon enveloped the poor fellows.
Fourteen Feople Killed in a Wreck in
Charleston, W. Vs., July 6. The great
est disaster in the history of this commu
nity was the wrecking of a Kanawha and
Michigan train at Farm, a village eight
miles north of this city Saturday morn
ing. There is a trestle there thirty-five
feet high, which caught fire at some time
during the night from an unaccountable
cause, probable from a cinder from an
engine passing about midnight. While
the bridge wai not consumed its founda
tions were so badly damaged as to render
it unsafe to cross. No notification of the
fact was received here, however, and the
train, the first of the day, attempted to
cross it as usual. The engine, tender and
baggage car passed over safely, but the
two coaches went through.
Nearly Every Passenger Dead or Injured.
Engineer Pat Connor seemed to realize
the situation and pulled open the throttle
in the hope of pulling all over safely, but
it was too late. Both coaches were
crowded and scarcely any one in them es
caped either death or injury. The station
is three miles from the nearest telegraph
office, but as soon as possible a relief train
was sent from this city, which returned
about 2:15 p. m. . bearing the dead and
wounded. One of the most pathetic in
cidents of . the aecident was that of the
case of the Welcher family. Mr. Welcher,
his wife and little child were on their way
to Point Pleasant to visit friends, being
their first trip outside of the city for
years. Mr. Welcher was instantly killed,
and his wife was brought here a few hours
later ' so badly injured that she died
shortly after her arrival. Their little
child, aged about two years, was some
what bruised and had three fingers of its
right hand cut off.
The List of Unfortunates.
" Ten were killed outright and four have
since died of their injuries. The follow
ing is a list of dead: Amos Col ton, Elk
City; Orville Robinson, Midway; Thomas
Thornton, Charleston; Walter Welcher
and wife, Charleston; Jasper Dougherty,
New Martinsville, O.; Colonel W. E. Fife,
Putnam county, W. Va.; Misses Mary
Sullivan and Ella O'Leary, Charleston;
Theodore N. Wilson, of Gallipolis Bul
letin; L. C. Rose and Charles Hoffman,
Blue Creek, Kanawha county; Mrs. II. S.
Tryslow, owner of the St. Albert hotel,
Charleston; au unknown woman.
CYCLONE IN THE SOUTH.
Several reople Killed and Much Froperty
Destroyed at Itaton Rouge.
New Orleaxs, July 7. At 6:30 yester
day morning a terrific wind and rain
storm struck Baton Rouge, La., and in a
few minutes had almost wrecked the
town. Great damage was done to build
ings in the eastern and southern portions
of the city, and many persons were killed.
The governor's mansion was demolished
Also the large brickyard and factory, with
a wing of the three-story brick building in
the penitentiary known as the hospital
and commissary, with a pantaloon fac
tory on the upper floor, were blown down
and totally destroyed. Forty persons were
at work in the factory, aud of these six
were killed and twenty-two were wound
ed, and horribly crushed. On the second
floor was the hospital, where twenty-six
persons were under medical treatment.
Four of these were killed and fourteeu se
riously or fatally wounded.
Names of the Killed.
The alarm bells were rung, and the fire
department responded, and with citizens
went to the work of rescue. The scene
was one of great horror. A violent rain
was falling, but the men worked hard, and
soon had the dead and injured out of the
debris. The names of the killed are: Isaac
McClelland, of Calcasieu Parish; J. N.
Wagoner, of Clayborne; Fred Gage, of
Ouachita; James Van Netter, of Nachl
tochez; John Gibson, of Orleans; Nathan
banner, of East Feliciana; William Wil

Ed Buckner, of Caddo.
In Other Tarts or the City.
The main building and the woman's de
partment of the Institution were unroofed
and the walls badly cracked. The damage
to the building is about 130,000. Ex-Judge
Ford, convicted for complicity in the mur
der of Capt. Murphy, worked gallantly in
rescuing the killed and - wounded. He is
clerk of the commissary department. The
prisoners all acted in a praiseworthy man
ner and gave the guards no trouble. The
tow boat Smoky City was wrecked about
Ave miles from Baton Rouge. Several of
the crew were injured bat no one was
killed. The ' path of the storm was
about 800 feet wide, - and nearly every
house in its path was blown to atoms.

ALL PLEDGED TO SECRECY.
The Witnesses Will Say Nothing Except
That Electricity Is a Success.
Half an hour before the time Axed for
'the executions to begin, the witnesses were
informed by Warden Brown, and of each
was required a pledge that he would not
say an thing of what he saw to anybody
outside. In other words they were pledged
to the strictest secrecy , about the whole
Names of the Witnesses.

From these men it was the purpose of
the reporters to obtain a detailed account
of the ghastly scene if they could.
. The Chaplain Convinced.
Rev. Mr. Law, chaplain of the Tombs,
said: "I was fully covinced that the kill
ing of murderers by electricity was a
failure, but I am now convinced to the
contrary. Every one of the men went tr
the chair calmly and died easily and with
out pain or contortion. Death was in
stantaneous. I am bound to' secrecy and
can say no more." It is said that the war
den read the death warrants to the con
demned men Monday night shortly before
midnight in the presence of some of his
witnesses. They were certainly not read
In the cells or in the death chamber.
The Antopsles All Performed.
The autopsies, contrary to expectations,
were performed by 4 o'clock, and the corps
of physicians left the station a short time
after that for New York and Albany. Dr.
McDonald, who conducted the execution
and autopsy, vs asked for a statement.
He declined to give any information, say
ing that the results would be given out
in Albany from official sources. Asked to
deny the statement that the men did not
die Instantly, he said: "I have nothing to
say as to that. Unconsciousness was im
mediate, and the men suffered no pain.
Made no resistance at all."
Would Neither Affirm Nor Deny.
"Do you deny that they were burned f
was asked. "I decline to be interviewed
on that point."
Dr. Ward was asked: "Did the first
shock kill the men?" and said: "I do not
care to answer that. I thiuk the execu
Dr. McDonald was asked how many
volts were used, and declined to answer.
All the witnesses have gone, and the
prison has returned to its natural state.
Warden Brown says that all information
will be given out at the office of the super
intendent of prisons in Albany.
WHAT THEY WERE KILLED FOR.
Each Man was Red Handed, and Two
of the Victims Were Women.
Jame J. Slocum, who was the first of
the men to be struck by lightning yester
day, was that most detestable of criminals,
a wife murderer. He had been a base ball
player and married a handsome young
woman, whom he led by his own habits
into a life of dissipation. He frequently
beat his wife, having stabbed her three
times, of which she made no complaint to
the police. He had just been released
from prison where he had been sent for
larceny, when he killed his wife. On the
evening of December 31. 1889, he found
her when he returned home in the rooms
of John . Williams, a bachelor living on
the same floor, where she had gone to bor
row kerosene. He ordered her to her
room and slammed the door. Neighbors
heard the sound of blows as well as the
woman's cries for mercy. None of them,
however, came to her relief or were curi
ous enough to ascertain the nature of her
injuries, and it was not until two days
later that her body was found with her
head cut and smashed with an ax.
A Murderous Salvationist.
Harris A. Smiler was another wife mur
derer, and also a bigamist, having deserted
the last of two wives to marry Maggie
Drainey. He was u member of the Salva
tion army, but this did not prevent him
from cruelly beating his wife, until final! 7
she left him. He then obtained a pistol,
and went to hunt her. After several days'
search he found her living with a Mrs.
Wilson, and shot her dead without warn
Ing. This occurred April 8, 1889.
Joseph Wood was a negro laborer, who
quarrelled with a tough named Charles
Ruffln in a saloon, in 1800 Ruffin threat
ened to have Wood's life during the quar
rel. Later th:y met in a saloon and Ruffin
spoke to Wood, who refused to have any
thing to do with him. Another row fol- ,

HANNIBAL HAMLIN DEAD.
Lincoln's Vice President Summoned to
His Long Home.
Bangor, Me., July 6. Hannibal Ham
lin, ex-vice president of the United States,
died at 6:13 o'clock Saturday evening in
the rooms of the Tarratine club, in this
city. During the afternoon Mr. Hamlin
visited the club-rooms and engaged in a
game of pedro with some other gentle
men. He had not been playing long when
he complained of a severe pain in the back
of his left shoulder. The gentlemen pres
ent rubbed his shoulder and applied stim
ulants, and in a short time he was much
better, and thanked them pleasantly for
their kindness. He then lighted a cigar
and resumed his game of pedro. A mo
ment later Mr. Hamlin's head fell for
ward on his chest. Those present Imme
diately ran to his assistance, and he was
removed to a lounge in the next room.
An Attempt to Fight Off Death.
Throe physicians Drs. Robinson, Ma
son and Phillips were soon on the ground.
Mr. Hamlin lay unconscious for half an
hour, when he improved somewhat under
tho doctors, efforts and became able to
articulate. Then he insisted upon laying
on his left side. This the doctors could
not allow, but they finely humored him
by changing his position slightly. Then
they took measures to keep up his
strength, applying spirits aud hot-water
bags until the patient regained color con
siderably and was able to talk a little, at
times quite strongly. When he regained
consciousness his first Inquiry was for his
wife, and he called her by. name. He
recognized her at once aud talked with
Complained of Iteing Too Warm.
Shortly before 8 o'clock he remarked to
Dr. Mason: "I am uncomfortably warm."
The doctor replied: ."We have been trying
to make you as comfortable as possible."
"But," Baid Mr. Hamlin, in a vein of pleas
antry rather remarkable under the circum
stances, "you are making me disagreeably
so." . The doctor replied that In order to
make him comfortable they must first
make him uncomfortable. Mr. Hamlin
complained considerably about being too
warm and insisted upon turning over on
his left side. He had Improved ,so much
at one time that a bed was ordered made
up for him in one of the rooms adjoining
the room in which he was attacked, lc
was thought he might be removed there In
a short time.
The End of Life at Last.
Mr. Hamlin objected to lieing put in a
bed, saying he wanted to sit up. His last '
words were regarding the bolstering up
of his head, which be wanted tuned
higher. General Hamlin, his son, was
confident until almost the last that he
would come ' out of his attack all right.
