A Lightning Express Train's Frightful Leap. Down a Steep Embankment Into the Schuylkill River. Trainmen and Passengers Crushed and Drowned—Fully Half a Hundred Victims. Associated Tress Dispatches, Reading, Pa., Sept. 1!). —One of the worst wrecks ever known in this section occurred tonight on tlie Reading rail road, seventeen miles from here. Near Shoemakersville there is a curve where the railroad is about eighteen or twenty feet higher than the Schuylkill river. Here shortly before 0 o'clock a freight train ran into a coal train, throwing sev eral cars'onto the opposite track. Before the track hands had time to warn any approaching train of danger, the Potts ville express, carrying about one hun dred and fifty passengers, came around the curve at the rate of forty miles an hour and ran into the wrecked coal cars. The engine went down the embank ment, followed by the entire train with its human freight. A Scene of Horror. The scene was one of great horror. The cries of the imprisoned passengers were heartrending. Some of the pas sengers managed to crawl out of then prison and arouse the neighborhood. Word was telegraphed to this city and surgeons and a force of 300 workmen were taken to the spot. The work was slow and the dying were taken out with great difficulty. Up to 1 o'clock tonight six dead and thirty wounded had been taken out. Of the latter some were brought to this city ami others taken to the miners' hospital at Ashland. The Dead and Injured.

The exact number on the passenger is not known, and a reporter, who is still on the ground, telephones that he believes that there are still twenty-rive or more bodies underneath the wreck, or who were carried away by the current. Later, 11:30 p. m.—The Associated Press agent has just had direct com munication with the representative at the wreck, who says conservative esti mates place the numberof killed at forty to fifty. It is almost impossible to esti mate the exact number, and the full horror of the situation will nut be known until a Inter hour. At 11 o'clock Mail Agent (ireenawald's body was taken out, followed by the horribly mangled bodies oi two Mahoney City firemen on their way home from Chester. Thirteen Bodies Recovered. At midnight ■ thirteen bodies have been recovered. The names of those known have already been given. Five bodies are exposed to view in the wreck, pinned under the timbers. A Passenger's Story. One of the passengers who escaped with slight injuries, said to the Asso ciated Press reporter at midnight: "When the crash came, I was hurled from my seat. One end of the car splashed into the river andl was thrown against the side of the car with a force that partially stunned me. I quickly re covered myself and managed to climb upon the seats on that side of the car which lay against the em bankment. I was a prisoner in tbe car and while I was nursing my sprained ankle and a wrist out oi joint, I realized I was in a scene of veritable horror. Around and about me were human be ings struggling in the water, screaming with fright, and some almost dragged me back into the water again. A few saved themselves as I did, and the re mainder struggled in the water and then quietly sank out of sight." Additional Victims. Professor Mitchell, of Lehigh Univer . sitv, at Bethlehem, is among the injured at Reading hospital. Lawrence Barnes, of Philadelphia, had his arm dislocated. The body of John L. Miller, of Cresona, was taken out at midnight. At three o'clock this morning 300 men are still at work, but making slow prog ress. Fifteen bodies were taken out. None of the bodies have been taken from tlie scene of the disaster. John McDonough and William John son, of Shenandoah, and John Strauss, of Schuylkill Haven, are among the lat est injured reported. It is believed that there are still twenty or more bodies be neath the wreck. Nothing definite can be known until the wreck has been raised, which will probably be tomor row.

Associated Press Dispatches. I • London, Sept. 10. —Advices from Hiogo state that the Turkish man-of war Ertogroul foundered at sea, and five hundred of her crew were drowned.

Osman Pasha and Aii Pasha, en voys of the sultan to the emperor of Japan, are among the drowned. Osman Pasha, whose victory over the Russians at Plevna gave him high rank[as afightinggeneral, bad been on an official visit to Japan, having been in trusted with a special mission from the Sultan to the Mikado. The progress of the vessel since she left Constantinople for the last, many months ago, has been most ludicrous. Leaving Turkey short of money, it was understood that sup plies were to be sent her to the ports at which she was to coal, with the result that her sojourn in those countries was indefinitely prolonged, as the officers at home were unable to keep their promises. In this way she lost some of her crew, and her officers were many times on the verge of rebellion, induced by starvation ; while the governors of the cities visited, refused to remit harbor dues and grant other privileges of right due her as a Turkish man-of-war, on the grounds that she was not sailing in that character.
