Mistaken Orders Cause Bad Acci? dent near Lorain, Ohio. Cleveland, Aug. 13?A fast eastbound passen ger traln on the Nfckel Plate road ran head-on Into a weetbound freight traln early to-day at Klshman, Ohio, near Yermlllon. Twelx-e persons "were killed, xxhllei at least twenty-flx-e were In? jured. eight of whom xrlll probably die. The wT4?ck. according to th- offlcials of the road. was caused by a misunderptandlng of orders on the part of the crew cf the freight train. Among the dead are Charles W. Poole. engi nerr of the pa_senger traln. nlxty years old. of ronneaut, Ohio; Jopeph Alexander. twenty-four years old. of Newark. N .1.. and Frank Weax-er. Th1rty-five years old. of Plniilay. Ohio.

Aslde from the engineer. the men killed on rhe passenger train were all riding in the _mok Ing enr at the head of the train. and wer-> mostly Italian laborers in the employ of th* Standard i"?ll Company. C. W. Poole, the en? gineer of the passenger traln, was killed at his post whil?*- trying to rc-rh for the alrbrake. His fireman, Haefner. aaved himself by Jumplng. The hlgh Fpeed of the passenger train threw Its locomotive and the first three roHoh<*p over on the engine of the freight train. tel^scoping t*he smoker and the car following. The forwar.l cars of the freight traln were splintered to fragmentA. '~)f the passengers ln the stnok-T nonc escaped injury. There was no fire. but the heavy timbers of the wrecked cars ninned down many and prevented them froni getting om until aFsistance arrlve-d. Ap soon as possible after the wreck doctors were sent on b specinl traln to the soene from Lorain. The- injured were hurrled to Lnram and placed ln the hospital there. The dead were taken to the morgue at Lorain, awalting identi flcatlon and dlsposltlon. V.'hen the trnins came together almost every body ln the tvrnoker was dozing. The pudden jar hurled them out of their seats into the alsle and threw several persons to the roof and s'.des of the car. The pa.-se-ngers ln the second "ar escaped more easily, as there the x iolenee of th" lmpact was not so pex-ere, although few got ->ff without cuts, brulses. sprains or broke-n bones. The two rear cars were s'.eepers and they with stood the shock without sufferlng serlous harm. No panarnBTira in the Fleep^rs were injured. The men on the train who escaped lnlury worked as well as they could do xvlthout tools, and the residents ln the sparnely settled neigh? borhood soon arriVed to belp. The pieepers -were used for the accotnmodation of aotne of Th injured, as were several houses near the- S-dlnfc. President caniff of the Niekel Plate to-day ttated that from the lnformation ln the hands of ibe officials the freight train crew had orders to go on the sldlng at Kistu-nan and there awalt the paaaace ot thP paaaeager traln.

PoleaiowR Pokorski who for a liuinber of years had work?d for Frank Krnmer. a gar dener at Jerome-ave. and 17Tth-st.. waa run down and inst.mtly killed by an automobile opposite his eniployer"s place shortly aft?r 1 o'cloek yesterday morning. his body being burled from The mlddle of the street to the etirb. The auromobile. whlch was a touiing car, contalning five men, did not stop after striking Pokorski. but continued rapldly down Jerome ave. and disappeared round a i-orner. None of the orltneoaea to the tragedy succceded in ger tlng tbe nurnber of th" machine. Paul Ritter. who llves in the apartment house at No. 1.886 Jerome-ave.. a few yarda below where the gardener was struck. was the nearest wttnesp. Ritter, who was sittlng on the steps of the apartment hous*. says that Pokorski was ornp?.ing the avenue. and when in the middle of the thoroughfare the automobile. whlch he de si-ribes a? maroon and with only one light burn inif. bore down on him at the rate of thirty mil?s an hour. There was a crash and a sound as of the automohile's brake being set hard, then the brake was rejeased and the rar dashed by. Running to the spot. Ritter found PokoraaTa body hring against the curb. the blood gushing froni nose. mmith and ears. Ar That moment a pnuthbnund Jerome-ave. trolley car came up and stopped. the pasa-ngers and crow having seen the accident One of The passengers ran back to Jerome and Burnside aves. and got Patrol - man K.

Dr. Heinr.e. who came with the ambulance. found tbat Pokorski"s akull had been eruBhed in. hia right arm broken and nearly every tib frrac-tured The hody was identified by Ritter. Accordlng to the crow and passengers of the trolley car. which was following close behind the automohile that struck the gardener. there were three automobiles, the touring car contaln? ing five men, and two runabouts, each with two I men. The automobiles seemed to be raclng when tbey passed the trolley car. I.ake said that he noticed the automobiles when they passed hlm at Burnside and Jerome aves.. and they were not exceedlng the legal speed limit at that time. He added that. although it was his cuatom to take the numbers of all automobiles that passed him at that hour. he did ti"t do so ln this Inatanee, bs when they went by he was busy dlrectlltg a man who had asked hlm about certain streots. lt is thought that tbe automobUisto, after realizing that they had run down and perhape fatally hurt a man. made their wa> into the city by some roundabout route.
