New Haven road officials, to&ajr, practically ad mitted that Conductor Edmund J. Goff. of this city, who was "dead heading in" on the Federal express, yesterday, was killed in the wreck on the Fairfield avenue viaduct. This brings the total number of dead to 1. Goffs body Is believed to be in the wreckage and had not been re covered up to 12:45 this aftemoo. A coat and hat containing a cardcase belonging to Goff were found in the debris. Mrs. Goff left this city for Bridge port, this morning. Goff was missed after the wreck and Inquiries at his home here de veloped that he was - in New York. The search there led to the discovery that he had boarded the Federal ex press. The road's officials after the finding of the coat and hat were all but ready to admit that Goff. met death In the wreck. A careful search of the Bridgeport hospitals and mor gue failed to give any traces of the missing man and tended to confirm the belief that he was in the wreck . - h - - .: Plumbers; Morris "Moss" Enrlght,al leged professional slugger and a gun man, business agent of the Steam li ters' Union, which is associated with trie United Association of Plumbers, All are charged with the murder of. Vincent Altman, professional slug ger and murderer. It is alleged that Enright was hir ed as "slugger In chief." of the build ing trades council connected with the American Federation of Labor and Altman, "as chief slugger" of the riv al independent council. It is charg- edthat a plot to kill Altman was for mulated in O'Donnell's saloon. GETTZ AND FUREY HAILED AS TWO HEROES OF WRECK Conductor, with Fractured Skull, Struggled to Signal Tower, to Clear Tracks Gettz, with 'Broken Ribs, Performed "Wonders of , .' Rescue Work Tales of heroism and of self-denial In the face of awful suffering are com ing to light from the survivors of the wreck of the Federal express hero yes terday morning. ' Among the men;, two shine out for their wonderful pluck in the face, of serious Injuries. .They are Michael Furey, conductor of the ill-starred ex press, and William Gettz of Phlladel phia, a passenger.. - , , Gettz,' with two ribs broken, an 1 other injuries, performed . wonderful work in rescuing injured women from the train. , He topped off his perform ance by carrying Furey, the con due tor, whose skull was fractured, up the steep -. embankment to the signal tower. Furey, covered with blood ' from many wounds, and only keeping- his consciousness by supreme will power, shouted. Instructions to the towerman to block the line on both sides of the wreck, 'to f prevent other- passenger trains from - crashing Into the debris and sharing the fate of ' the Federal .Express. ' Furey lapsed! Into unconsciousness from the wound on his head, from Which blood was pourings all over him, From the moment of the crash, his first thought was to' get to the signal tower and to clear the line on both sides, to prevent a repetition of the recent wreck at Fairfield, in which four freight trains piled Into each oth er. His duty accomplished, Furey's nerve failed him and he fainted away. How Gettz, In his wounded condition. with a sprained . back and fractured ribs, succeeded in accomplishing the amount of physical .work that he did. Is tho marvel of all who were first at the wreck. His feat in carrying Furey up the embankment would have taxed an able . bodied man in the best of health. The intense excitement of the moment doubled his stremrth and made him forget his own serious in juries. Gettz is accredited1 with having res cued more women from the wrecked train than any other man at the scene of the catastrophe. He is now pay ing ' the prlc3 for his strenuous exer tions In his wounded 'condition, for his hurts are proving much more serious than they would have been, had he been content to lie on the ground and not attempt to help: the others. Mr. Saunders' Tells Of Awful Wreck Experience (Special from United Press.) New London, July 12. A survivor's owns story of the yesterday Federal Express wreck at Bridgeport was told here, today, by W. H. Saunders, whose Drotner was killed in the crash. "There was not the slightest warn ing of the impending calamity," said Mr. Saunders. "It was still dark and in the blackness of the night there suddenly came a terrible crash, the like of which I never knew before and hope never to experience again. A blue haze settled over everything and out of the gloom the first cry I heard was 'My God, its afire., "I was not dazed as one would actually expect but to the contrary, my mind as clear as it Is now. ' When I found that I could move my first thought was of my. wife. As I start ed to search for her a man crawled through a car window and cried to me. 'For God's sake how will I get out?' Just then I heard my wife calling me and she told me that she wag not hurt but that she was pinned down by something. "I yelled for a knife and somebody brought one up through an opening in the car floor. I did not wait for ceremony but slashed my wife's dress, skirt, in fact all of her clothing from her body and in that way extricated her. - "The scenes which I. witnessed were terrifying. I saw one woman carry ing her dead baby and crying pite ously. The dawn was breaking am illumined the frightful scene. , Al" around were dead bodies and the cries of the suffering were too pitiful for words. "Some one said, Tret's see if we can get this woman out.' and I turned to see a woman's hand sticking up from the ruins. No other part of her body could be seen and with the help of willing hands we pulled off the debris piece by piece and were at last able to release her, badly bruised but not fatally Injured. CURTIS WAS NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE RUN (Special1 from United Press.) Providence, July 12 Curtis, the dead engineer, was unfamiliar with the run and did not know; that the switch, was MAN'S BODY TAKEN FROM DEBRIS W FEDERAL EXPRESS; OTIER BOMES MAY BE FOUND DID PARTIALLY OPEN SWITCH TO SIDETRACK WRECK FEDERAL EXPRESS Was a partially open switch, the cause of the derailment of tbe v Federal Express, yesterday? Opinion grows today as the result of certain circumstances, that the heavy train, in spite of Its high speed, might have made the crossover switch in safety, had It not been for the second switch, about 2? feet bey end the terminus of the first, or . crossover switch. 1 - - ' ' It is the second switch which It. is now believed may have been open, or which, In any event, was the point at which the engine -of the train seems to have left the tracks. Among those who went to the scene yesterday was a gentleman who is somewhat familiar with the results that flow from railroad casualties. He examined; the ground .with some care. He. noted first, .the crossover switch, by which- the' train was to have been shifted from one track to the other. He then noted the switch point a few feet beyond, which marked the entrance to a side track; which leads down to the ground level frpm the . embankment upon whch the main tracks are placed. f ' ' ' It was noted that the ties indicated that the train had first left the track at he second! switch point, ;and had apparently taken the f roi' on the wrong side! :y The ties were lightly miarked by the car wheels on ihe side of the .track away from the direction in which the train went over the em bankment, and this Indicated that the train had attempted to take the switch.' The neighborhood indicated that repairs hadi been in progress In which the second switch was Included. This was shown by the fact that the spikes used In fastening a guard ( rail to Its place showed no evidences of considerable exposure io the weather. Not "more than a few hours exposure was the Idea of the person who mad the examination. ' It has been steadily rumored, upon authority not known, that the crossover has long been considered dangerous, and that railroad men bave prophesied that a wreck-would' take place hereir It is also asserted 'that the switch, points were notv protected ... ty up-to-date '-, signals. . , ; . . ; One, theory has It that the switch entering the side track had been only partially repaired, and may have geen at least partially" open. ' v ' ' -i . Today the spot at which the wreck began is entirely changed. The side track which, branches from track 4 has entirely disappear ed.. The replenished , road bed Is covered now with only four tracks, all along the scene of the wreck, where heretofore there were five tracks beginning at the switch, near the signal tower at the west end of the viaduct crossing over Fairfield avenue. . . i There is no attempt ,at present to replace the sidetrack, for the ;utslde section on. which the siding was resting has been torn com pletely away and the bridge has been propped only to carry the four ' tracks. . . . Trolley traffic was resumed beneath the trestle this morning. ' WIDOW OF ENGINEER CURTIS CLAIMS HE HAD BEEN OVER WORKED BY RAILROAD New Tork, July 12 The New York American prints' the following today: "Although dead men tell no tales, the widow of Engineer Curtis is very much alive, and the sad story which she related to the New York Ameri can last night, .as she comforted her three fatherless children, contained an entirely different version of the re sponsibility from that "officially" given to the public (by the railroad company. i "It was overwork that killed my poor husband," declared the widow of the engineer In her home, at No. 836 Beekman avenue, the Bronx, last night. "For eight hours on ' Monday my husband ran a switch engine about the freight yard In the Bronx. You know how hot that work is in the heat of 'such a day as Monday. He came home to me and the babies all played out, and we just Tested about the house In the early evening gasp ing for some , fresh air, like almost everyone, else did. "Along about nine o'clock that night the call came for Arthur to report for duty as the engineer of the Fed eral Express, which was to leave aTsout midnight. Tired as he was, set for his train to cross over to the outside track so that .it might make tne Jjnageport station stop. , He was the Tegular engineer of the "Cannon ball", the fastest freight train on the system, which did not include Bridge port In its .schedule. The regular en gineer of the Federal, Fowler, had been overcome by the heat and was unable to make his run, so the frelerht engineer was drafted to pull the throt tle. Indictment Is Issued Against Edward G. Lewis (Special from United Press.) St. Louis, July 12 E. G. Lewis, head of the Lewis Publishing concerns of University City, Mo., was indicted today, by the Federal Grand Jury on charges of violating the postal laws. After the Jury's report had been sub mitted to the court, one juror arose and informed the court that District Houts had displayed nreludice against j . V v. CO. the noor fellow' braced Tin -at An ro. for that call meant some extra money ior us, ana we neeaea tne money. "My husband had. Inst wvnvorod from a three weeks' illness. He was sick with the measles and we were quarantined. Our income was cut off ana we used up our savings. My husband, although employed by the New Haven & Hartford for more than thirteen years, eleven of them as an engineer, never got a regular run. He was for seven years past on the 'spare' list. "He was always very careful, and occasionally he has taken the Federal ExDress out before. t nm v, knew every turn In the road, and I cannot, unuerstana now he could do wrong, unless the tired feeling was too; much for him. He had com plained - during the evening of being very weas irom, xne extreme heat of Monday." A clerk sent toy the railroad com pany to notify Mrs. Curtis of the death of her husband merely told her that there had been a wreck. She wandered around for two hours seek ing word from her husband before a kind trainman took her aside and told her the truth. She collapsed and -was taken home.

The annual conclave decided on Los Angeles as the meeting place, next year. Odor of Decomposing Re mains Leads Trainmen to Huddled Body Beneath Heaps of Wreckage Coroner Wilson Gives Or- ders that All Energies 'Are to Be Bent to Reach Dead Man, Who Wears Brake- man's Uniform. He Is K Believed to Be Cer tainly Missing Flagman Edward Goff Brakeman J oslin Also Missing, Sup posed to Have Been with Goff Dead Identified. At 2 o'clock this afternoon a body believed to toe that of "Edlward Goff, a railroad flagman employed on Springfield-Harlem, river freight, who was known to have been deadheading on the Federal express, was taken from the debris as a wrecker lifted away the Speellng car, Alteus. Goffs wife came to Bridgeport to day. with a railroad engineer who had heard that Goff was reported killed. Goff lives with his wife, 254 Llyod street. ; It was his custom to return home on "the Federal from Harlem river after he completed his runJ The remains were taken to the mor gue for a more complete identification than was -possible In the condition of the bodv as It came from tn wreckage. r ' " Goff was a flagman very well known In railroad circles. For many , years he was on the road. -He lives with his wife In New Haven, and has a son. Robert J. Gff. also a trainman He was on Sprlngfleld-Haxlem river freight known as S. H. 1. Rumors of the presence of bodies m the ' wreckage ; began .late yester day when clothing that appeared to be that - of railroaders was dragged out of the debris. Goffs coat is re ported to have been found among others, but the whereabouts of the garment is not now known. ! It was reported , also that another trainman, named Joslyn, was in the wreckage. Joslyn ana Goff, tne story croea .were on the same ' run, and leavlnsr their freight at the comple tlon of Its run, they "deadheaded" it, as the trainmen call it, from Harlem river back towards New Haven, on the Federal express. - Mrs: Goff heard of the wreck at her home In New Haven yesterday fore noon, and at once suspected that some harm had befallen her husoana. Mr. Goff is reputed to be one of the most reliable trainmen on the road, and his unexplained absence from home at once gave rise to fears that' he was numbered among the victims. ' Mrs. Goff enlisted the services Of another trainman, an engineer, who accompanied her to this city- today. They went to the morgue, and exam ining the single unidentifledt male there, at once concluded that it could not be that of Mr. Goff. Then they went to the hospitals and found at both St. "Vincent's and the Bridgeport hospital that there . was none answering GofTs . description. They concluded that he must be still In the wreck, and they decided to await the removal of. the last two cars. Mrs. GbfT did not go to the scene, re maining In the center of the city while the railroad man went to the disaster, to witness, the work of clearing away the temporary . tomb of the missing flagman. . Fire Chief Edward Mooney is doubt ful as to whether there any more bod. les beneath the wreck. - He says he and his men have been pretty well over the wreckage and have made a search as thorough as was possible, He will admit 'the possibility of there being more bodies still to be disclosed, but he thought it improbable after he had made another examination of the scene at noon today. Throughout the day the morgue was filled with people seeking to identify the unclaimed bodies. Until late this afternoon there was no claimant for the body of Engineer Curtis. Curtis is the man upon whom the railroad officials 1 have shouldered the responsibility for the wreck. He was not in good standing, says the Broth erhood of Railway Trainmen, for non payment of his dues. " Though his family in the Bronx, New York, have been notified of his death, and that the body is still unclaimed,- up to a late henir today no word had been received as to the disposition of the remains. One of the female corpses lying In the morgue was . Identified this morn ing. It was that of Mrs. Virginia W. Palmer, 61, of Richmond, Va.' Her son, M. P. Waddy of that city, came on here when he read press dispatches announcing the discovery of a body with the initial P in the clothing. At first glance he identified the body, and .all but swooned. Upon second glance, he was dubious, but later was convinced that the remains were those of his parent. He made arrangements for the ship ment of the body on the midnight express to Washington, D. C. The body of Walter M. Ryan, the fireman, was shipped at 10 o'clock this morning to the Bronx. Identification of the woman with the name Bertha M. Walcott was completed today by her husiband, Tr. G. A. Walcott, secretary of the Smithsonian institute, of Washington, D. C. Mrs. .Walcott was on the way to visit her sister in Lynn, Mass. She postponed her trip for several days on account of the heat and finally board ed the Ill-fated train with reluctance because of the disagreeable conditions for travelling. This body will be shipped to Washington tonight. Dr. Walcott arrived here early this morn ing. At tine morgue this afternoon there remain three . unidentified bodies. These are the unidentified negro, un identified man who is dressed like a BALDWIN NAMES RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSIONERS (Special from United Press.)
