the committee insisted upon the pay
ment of the full amount of ransom.
A naive suggestion is current in po

the United States should force Tur

and as soon as the prisoners are in
safety, force Bulgaria to punish those
persons guilty of their abduction.

Terrible Disaster on Wa
bash in Michigan
Passengers Meet Head-on
Under Full Speed
Believed Nearly One Hun
dred Are Killed
Detroit, Nov. 28. —One of the most
disastrous wrecks in the history of
the Wabash or any other Michigan
railroad occurred at Seneca, Mich., a
small way station 70 miles southwest
of Detroit between 7 and 7:30 o’clock
last night. Train No. 13, an emigrant
train with two engines west bound,
collided under full head with train
No. 4, east bound, about one mile
from Seneca. The result was that
five or six coaches of the emigrant
train were crushed and its load of
human freight sent into eternity In a
moment, while one coach of No. 4
which consisted of parlor, diner and
baggage cars was also telescoped and
four dead bodies taken from the
It is not known how many people
were on the emigrant train, but the
death list will be anywhere from 60
to 150. The people on that train
were caught like rats in a trap and
crushed. Then the wreck caught fire
and those not instantly killed were
slowly roasted to death. The whole
emigrant train was consumed and
every person on that train, as report
ed now, were killed. Farmers resid
ing along the track rushed in on the
blazing mass to rescue those they
thought might be alive. Bodies were
hauled out of the wreck and taken to
nearby farm houses, which are filled
with dead, and a large number of in
jured were taken to the hospital at
Peru, Indiana. Along the track long
lines of burned bodies lay covered
with blankets, presenting a gruesome
sight. It may be possible the exact
number of killed or who they are will
never be known. At present it is
impossible to get anything resembling
a list of the injured or dead from
Death List Appalling.
Detroit, Nov. 28. —It is estimated
the loss of life in the Wabash wreck
will be from 100 to 150. The track in
the vicinity of the wreck is strewn
with dead and dying. Many physicians
from Detroit have gone to the scene.
Advices from the wreck at midnight
state the country for miles is lighted
up by the burning cars and that
the flames could not be quenched.
The mangled bodies were picked up
along the track by farmers before a
special train sent from Adrian ar
rived. In some instances they were
mangled beyond recognition and so
badly burned their identity will prob
ably never be ascertained.
The loss of life in No. 13, the emi
grant train, is estimated at 100 and
on No. 4, the continental limited, is
said to be 25. The engine of the
emigrant train exploded and that of
the limited train turned over into
the ditch. Two firemen and one en
gineer on the emigrant train were
killed and the engineer on the limited
jumped and escaped.
As soon as news of the disaster
reached Division Superintendent
Burns at Detroit, special trains were
ordered from Adrian, Peru and Mont
pelier to the scene. A special train
from Detroit carrying 32 physicians
and surgeons was given right of way.
When it reached the scene work was
at once commenced in succoring the
wounded. A special from Adrian
bearing all the doctors and physicians
of that city had been at work an hour,
but flames retarded the work of res
cue. . The wounded had been placed
on stretchers in coaches sent from
Adrian. At 10:45 o'clock the first
train loaded with wounded left the
scene for Adrian. The dead were left
to be carried in on a later train.
A wrecking train from Montpelier
arrive shortly after 9 but the heavy
vestlbuled cars of the limited lay be
tween it and the burning immigrant
cars so that but little aid could bt
rendered. It is believed 500 people
were on the trains.
Misread the Signal.
Detroit, Nov. 28—Engineer Strong
made the following statement: "I was
running 66 miles an hour when I
saw a light on the emigrant train. I
shut down to 50 miles. We t&d seven
coaches and a baggage car. I jumped.
So did my fireman. The first car was
strong and was not smashed. The
second collapsed and not a soul es
Willard Stearns, editor American
press, returned from the wreck at
2:30 a. m. and telephoned the follow

"The cause of the disaster was the
misreading of his order by Engineer
Strong of the Continental limited.
The order read: ‘Pass at Seneca,’
but Strong understood it to read ‘Sand
Creek. ‘The conductor of the train
read the order rightly, but he did not
know the engineer misunderstood it
and supposed his train was going on the
siding. Finding the train to be run
ning rapidly the conductor put on the
air brakes himself, but was too late.”
Eighty At Least Killed.
Detroit, Mich., Nov. 28. —The latest
reports from Adriain are to the effect
that there are 80 dead and 150 injured
twenty-five seriously. Fifty of the 80
were killed outright.
Guesses at Dead.
! Detroit, Nov. 30. —An interview last
evening with Thomas E. Moran, depu
ty customs collector of this port, prac
tically verifies the estimate that at
least 80 lives were lost in Wednesday
night’s holocaust near Seneca. The
two immigrant cars in which the
greatest loss of life occurred and in
which so many victims were -roasted
to death were part of train No. 13
which crossed the Detroit river from
Canada on the ferry boat Great West
ern Wednesday afternoon and Moran
inspected the baggage and its passen
gers. He says at the very least cal
culation there were 100 Italians in the
two cars. In addition there were ten
more in the smoking car which was
ahead of the immigrant cars. Official
advices of the Wabash railroad say of
the Italians in the wreck 24 escaped
unhurt and 10 were injured and taken
to the company’s hospital at Peru
Ind. Subtracting these from the 110
immigrants that Moran says were on
the train, leaves the death loss of
Italians alone at 76. These bodies
were burned to ashes in the fire which
followed the wreck. In addition eight
other bodies were recovered and iden
tified which makes a total of 84 dead.
Survivors Tell of Wreck.
Des Moines. Nov. 30.—Five Aus
trians, survivors of the wreck on the
Wabash at Seneca, Mich., arrived here
yesterday to work in the coal mines of
Marquisville. They occupied the
third coach in the wrecked immigrant
train and graphically describe the aw
ful scene in the car. A babe, with 'ts
lower limbs torn off, lay near them
crying for its mother, while they were
pinned under the wreckage They
give their names as Vena Kazelichty
George Kazelichty, Verny Svob, Josef
Shonoyder and Philip Mihagevich.
Says Report Is Too High.
Detroit, Mich.. Nov. 30. —When seen
last night by a reporter Supt. Burns
of the Wabash railroad -says the death
loss in the wreck was being estimated
very much too high. He expects a
complete list of the immigrants on
train No. 13 tomorrow when an official
statement will be issued. He says:
“As near as I can estimate now there
are 22 dead. We have identified
8 bodies and believe fragments found
j represent fourteen other bodies.’’
Burns declares Collector Moran's esti
mate is too high.
Says There Were 181 on Board.
| Adrian. Mich., Nov. 30.—Just before
| the coroner's inquest on the Wabash
I 'vreck adjourned late last night Con
ductor Trowl of No. 13 train testified
: there were 190 passengers on board.
At Holloway he received orders to
meet No. 4at Seneca. He gave a
copy of the order to each of his en
