CHARLOTTE, X. C„ Sept. 12S. While running at a high rate of speed train No. 1)7 on the Southern railway, the south bound fast mail train, jumped from a trestle seventy-live feet high half a mile north of Danville. Va., late yesterday and was almost demolished Of the crew of sixteen men. including mail clerks, on tin* train nine were killed and seven injured. The dead are: .).

Hor ry of Nokesvllle, Va.: P. N. Ardan Tvright, Mount Clinton. Va., mail clerks; a flagman named S. .1. Moody of Raleigh, N. and a boy of twelve years, son of .1. L. Thompson. The ex press messenger, W. F. Pinkney, re mained uninjured. All of the injured men are seriously hurt and have been taken to the hos pital +n Danville. The recovery of one mall clerk is hardly possible, and other clerks are thought to have received mortal injuries. The trestle where the accident oc curred is 500 feet long and is located on a sharp curve. Engineer Ilrodie was a new man on that division of the Southern, and it is said lie came to the curve at a very high rate of speed. The engine had gone only about fifty feet on the trestle win n it sprang from Die track, rarrvinsr with it four mail A Choice Line of MEATS -AT THE People’s leal Martel 322 STATE STREET TELEPHONE 14-w cars and an express car. The trestle, a wooden structure, also gave way for a space of fifty feet. At the foot of tlie trestle is a shallow stream with a rocky bottom. Striking tills, the engine and the ears were re duced to a mass of twisted iron and steel and pieces of splintered wood. As the cars went down they touched the side of the Riverside cotton mill, which is very close to tlie trestle. Several thousand people were soon at the scene of the wreck. No one on any of the cars had made an effort to jump, and the bodies of all those killed were found in tlie wreckage of the dif ferent cars to which they belonged. Ladies who drove out to the wreck from Danville fainted at tlie sight of the bodies, some of which were crushed to a ghastly degree. It seemed mirac ulous that any one should have es caped. for each car falling with the en gine bounded from it and completely collapsed after striking the rocks at tlie foot of tlie trestle. All the express matter in the express car was practi cally destroyed except six crates full of canary birds. None of the birds was hurt, though the crates were in cial opinions that have been ascer tained agree in giving only one cause for the wreck, the high speed of the train on the sharp curve. The mail bags in all the mail cars were torn open, and the letters and packages were scattered, but it is be lieved none is lost. Fire which ap peared in the wreckage shortly after it occurred was quickly extinguished by tlie Danville Are department. In loss of life this is one of the most serious wrecks that have occurred on the Southern, and it is tlie third time that the fast mail has been almost en tirely demolished. On account of the wreck all traffic on the central and northern divisions of the Southern will be affected. It will take several days to repair the damage to the trestle.
