LOS ANGELES: SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 14, 1893.
JOY TURNED TO SORROW.
An Awful Kail way Disaster
at Jackson, Miss.
Twelvo People Killed and Many
Others Injured.
The Victims Were Eastern World's
Fair Excursionists.

Br the Aaaoclatcd Pre.-.
Jackson, Mich., Oot. 13.—The most
awful railroad disaster ot the preaent
year-is the most that can be eaid of the
terrible wreck which occurred thia
morning right in front of the depot of
the Michigan Central Railroadcompanv
in this city. Twelve lives were wiped
out and nearly thriob that number of
people mangled and crushed. All the
people, who were happy tyul joyful,
were on their way to Chicago, presuma
bly to visit the world's fair.
Til* tvitet'KKn niAis.
The train in which the casualty oc
curred was an excursion train that left
Watertown, N. V., yesterday for Chi
cago in two sections, heavily loaded.
The first section reached Jackson at
8:50 thiß morning and stopped at
tbe depot to change engines. Many
passengers alighted during the time to
get a bite of breakfast (luting the wait.
This in itself was a most fortunate oc
currence, ss had it not* bean for this the
liet of killed and injured wonld have
been much greater. While tbe first
section was standing in the station the
second section came into tbe yard at
the rate of 20 miles an hour. The en
gineer saw ttie semaphore set and tried
to atop, but for an unaccountable reason
the air brake on bis engiue failed to
work, and the heavy train crashed with
terrific force into the cars standing still.
The twe rear coaches of the first section
were telescoped, and it was in these tbat
iLOit of tha casualties occurred.
APPALLINU RESULTS.
Kvery passenger in tbe cars was either
killed or terribly injured. Tba third
coach from the rear ot the first section
was thrown to one Bide and four passen
gers in it were killed and "there injured.
With the exception of the engine and
baggage car tbe rear section escaped
senous harm. Tha" engine #»» badly
wracked, and steam and hot water es
caping irom tbe sides of the punctured
holler added greatly to the Buffering of
the unfortunate victims.
In a very short time after the accident
occurred the people of tbe city gathered
at the scene by hundreds and aided tbe
railroad men in every possible way in
succoring tbe unfortunates. President
Ledyard. and other high officials of the
road, came from Detroit on • special
train as Boon as tbey were advised of
the awfnl affair, and directed tbe efforts
of tbe rescuers.

HEARTRENDING SCIENES,
When the collision occurred the
shrieks that rent the air could tie iisard
for blocks. Fireman Joseph ICirabei
ling jumped from the cab before the
crash and escaped uninjured. Engi
neer William Whalen jumped later and
waa badly hurt. He may not recover.
As the mangled forms were gradually
removed from tbe coaches tbe mass of
onlookers groaned in sympathy and the
ininrad cried ont- in agosy.
"Lord, have mercy on my soul!"
shrieked a poor fellow whose lile was
ebbing away.
' Grind Jeans, cara for TomrnvT' cried
a woman, who waß dying, with a child
at her breast.
A woman, whose name is unknown,
lay on the side of tbe track putfering
untold mental and physical anguish;
she wae tbe mother of a child two years
old, and implored tbe bystanders to save
her child.
"Only let me ccc my babe before I
die," said she. "You, who know a
mother's love, get my cnild, I beseech
you."
Het child was dead.
REMOVING TUB DBAD.
The work of removing the dead anJ
injured was carried on with all possible
dispatch. Mayor Bennett and Sheriff
I'eck took charge ol the work of the
townspeople, and to them and the citi
zens geuerally ie due great credit for the
attention bestowed upon the sufferers.
Though thousands of splinters were
scattered about this morning but few
remain on the ground tonight. They
have been carried by the curious
as mementoes of the terrible wreck.
Cushions bespattered with the blood of
the killed have been torn to shreds and
carried away likewise.
THE CACHE OF THK WKRCK.
The cause of the wreck is a mystery.
Some of the railroad officials cay the
only responsible agent is engineer Wba
len, hut none of them say he can be
fairly held responsible for It, The air
brakes wonld not work, and nobody
feels competent to explain why they
would not. The two trainsVere deliv
ered to the Michigan Cent al at Buffalo,
one from the New York Central and
tbeother from the Delaware, 'Lacka
wanna and Western. Both were excur J
sions, the passengers having been picked
up at local points in New York and
Pennsylvania.
ENGINEER WUALEN'B KTMSY.
Engineer Whalen was able tonight to
talk to a representative of tbe Associ
ated Press. He eaid the engine was a
new one and in all particulars had
worked beanti/nily on the run from
Detroit. He stopped at. two points aud
slowed down at one junction, and on
the three occasions the air brakes
worked perfectly. Just east of Jackson
janation, a milo east of where the disas
terocgurred, be touched tbeairand round
it all rigJat. As the train crossed Eiroer
avenue be began to slow down and ap
plied the air. He fonnd tbe brake held
on the engine, but Would not on the
train. He then whittled for hand
brakes and reversed the engine. The
fireman jumped, but Whalen stayed
with the engine until within three car
lengths of tbe other train, when he
went oot through the cab window, ac
he had not time to reach ihe gangway.
The only possible explanation Whalen
has for the failure of the air is that
while lying at Ypsilanti some miscreant
must nave turned tbe shut-off cock be
tween the -tender ,mri the cuts.
A PRKVIOtM HORROR.
This wreck is the first one of conse
quence on the Michigan Central since
October 10, 1870, when a westbound Pa
cifio express crashed into a switch en
gine and several freight cars about a
mile esst of today's happening, killing
18 people and injuring 35.
James A. Hyde, of New York City,
who was standing near tbe wrecked
train on tbe platform as tbe other train
crashed into it, says the eieht was the
most awful be ever witnessed. He saw
Engineer Wbalen jUBt before he jumpsd
and adds that be never saw such an ex
pression of agony on a man's face.
PASSENGERS' EXPERIENCES.
All the passengers, both those who
escaped and those who were in the eat
ing room of the station at the time, had
interesting etoviea to tell of their expe
riences.
The tale of E. N. Beardsley, of East
Canton, Pa., wae a particularly sad one.
He escaped injury himself, but his wife
.was killed and his daughter ao severely
hurt that she cannot recover. "I had
brought some coffee to my wife and
daughter a few minutes before," said
be, "and had gone .to the smoker near
the bead of tbe train to smoke
a cigar. Scarcely had I got seated when
tbe awful crash came. When I -rushed
back I lound the car in which my folks
bad been seated in the midst of the
wreck. The first of the injured I discov
ered was my daughter. A few feet from
her I found my wife dead. She had been
struck in tbe head and forced through
the front of the car."
One of the ghastly phases ot the acci
dent was the decapitation of Mra. D. Z.
Gibbs. She was accompanied by ber
husband, wbo waß out on the platform
at the time oi tbe collision. She was
not identified until tonight. Her hus
band was one of tbe active searchers in
the wreck, but did not recognize ber
remains when taken out. He made a
trip through different undertaking es
tablishments tonight, and was horrified
to find bis wife's body, headless.
RECKLESS RUNNING.
There is an ordinance in Jackson pro
hibiting tbe rnnniug of trains faster
than six miles an hour inside of Ihe
city limits, and it is atatbd tonight that
bad this been observed the wreck could
not have occurred. The train, accord
ing to competent witnesses, was running
at least 20 and possibly 30 miles an
hour just before it reached the station.

Washington, Oct. 13.—The West India
: cyclone 1 and a storm irom the northwest
| joined issues this morning, east and
; west, and since then telegraphic coin
: mucication is practically at a standstill.
After sweeping over the Florida penin
sula yesterday, tbe cyclone made its
way north through Georgia, North Caro
lina and Virginia and met the storm
from the weat somewhere in Pennsyl
vania or Ohio, where both diffused over
■ a wide area, playing havoc witb all
means of wire communication. An at
tempt was made to work the Associated i
Press circuits by dividing them into
' small sections - and relaying, but it was
! even than found almost impossible to
carry the important news of tbe day.
At 7 o'clock this eveuing the Western
Union company reported all their wires
between Washington and Harrisburg and
New York down; and communication
between Pittsburg and New York routes
almost impossible. At the Postal tele
i graph ofb'cc the came situation obtained.
Their Wanhington and Chicaco wireß
were down, and the New York wires so
slow as to be of no value whatever. At
the present writing one of tbe Associ
ated Press wires to New York via Buffa
lo is working very hard; another is
[ started south to Memphis irom Chatta
nooga and thencu north, and south to
New Orleanß.

1 Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 13. —The wires are
| all down beyond Jacksonville. E'la. The
area,teat force of the storm waß felt on
tbe east gulf coast near Tampa.
Charleston is two feet under water from
Butler atreet. The damage to the
! Charleston water front cannot be eeti-
I mated yet. It wn; covered with cotton.
Nothing has been heard from the
; islands on the Carolina coast. All tbe
! wires into Charleston are down. Tbe
storm did little damage in Savannah.
The lower part of the city is covered
with water. Nothing has been heard
from the Tybee islands since midnight,
when the wind waß blowing :i0 miles an
hour. The indications are that the
storm spent its greatest fury on the
ocean. Anxiety is felt for the steam
ship City of Augusta, due tonight. It
is probable she encountered the storm
just off Huntings island.
DISASTERS IN BALTIMORE.
Baltimore, Md., Oct. 13.—1n various
sections of the city bouses are unroofed
and trees blown down. The wind and
rain swelled the water in the harbor co
tbat New York trains on the Baltimore
and Ohio are unabie to cross at Locust
I point. From Annapolis aud other sec
tions in Southern Maryland come reports
] of damage by the t^torm.
At 10 o'clock tonight, while the wind
j was blowing a gale, the Brush electric
light works took lire aud burned. As
j these supplied tbe city and nearly all
J the stores and other buildings in tbe
j city with light, the city ia plunged in
partial darkness. At the Holiiday
street theater a panic was only averted
by the presence of mind of the attache.
Sparks from tbe Brush electric light
Works eet fire to the city jail. Ihe pris
oners were hurriedly collected and
marched into the yard, Q;iite a num
ber, however, were overcome by smoke
and dragged out. At midnight the jail
was completely destroyed. A. cordon of
police formed about the jail. Doctors
I are working on the prisoners. Seventy
! live were taken to the city hospital.
None of them are believed to be fatally
injured. Tbe southern part of the city
is flooded and the water at the docks ie
even With tho Burface of the street.
DEVASTATION IN FLORIDA.
Sr. Louis, Oct. 13.—The Republic's
I Bpecial irom Jacksonville, Fla., says
i reports of the storm coming in bljow
I that the damage is much greater than
at first supposed. Its track along the
i east coast is plainly marked by the dcv
! natation caused. It iB impossible to get
! details, as all ths wires in tbe eastern
i portion of tbe state are down. Bail road
I traiiic ia practically suspended; wash
outs are numerous. Kepurle from Now
Smyrna state that the storm played
havoc there,hooßes beine blown away and
other damage done. Mayport, a town
at the mouth of the St. John's river,
came near being washed away. Eight
bouses on the beach were swept away ;
two white boyß are missing. A number
of casualties are reported, but so far no
deaths, St. Augustine is iloo led with
three feet of water, mauy stores and
residences being badly damaged. Ship
ping in all tho pons suffered greatly.
: Tha orange crop in the eastern portion
:of the state is considerably injured iv
many places. The losses sustained will
i reach into hundreds of thousands of
dollars.
THE CYCLONE AT NEW YORK.
New York, Oct. 13. —The cyclone
which has been expected a week or more
reached here with a vengeance this
evening. It began soon after the yacht
race was finished, and by dark the wind
was blowing a gale and a heavy rain waa
fulling. At 9 o'clock the wind waa blow
! ing 38 milea un hour; at \> ;3d, 42; at 10
o'clock, 48 ; nt 11:20, 50 miles. The
i< >--iciu Lifi-wQ. i."i» UO tuuiuiuuiuabiuu
j with ths west from early in the evening
I until a late hour, and then ita facilities
| were limited. Communication with
[ Washington was in almost as bad shape.
The storm resembled a cyclone, and to
wards midnight a rainfall came tbat
flooded the streets and left pools large
enough to float the yachts if it wae nec
essary for them to race again.
WIRES SWEPT AWAY.
Chicago, Oct. IS.—No wires are ob
tainable east of Pittsburg since early in

By the Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 13.—At the cabinet
meeting today, after a complete discus
sion of all the phases of the senata
situation, a compromise proposition waa
agreed on, to be offered by one of the re
peal senators. It includes, as did Har
ris's amendment, a provision for tbe
coinage of silver seigniorage in the
treasury, amounting to $53,000,000, and
thereafter the purchase of 3,000,000
ounces a month until 00,000,000
ounces are purchased. This will
carry the purchase of eilver
over the expiration of Mr. Cleveland's
term, the condition the silver men insist
upon, and relieve the treasury dnring
the coinage of tbe seigniorage of 18
months of further purchase of bullion,
besides making the bullion so coined
available treasury assets. To meet the
demands of the east, tbe proposition
for the issue of $100,000,000 of 3 per
cent bonds is included. There is still
a question whether a provision for the
repeal of the tax on state bank issues
and tbe redemption of notes of ail classes
below $5 shall be added.
SENATE PROCEEDINGS.
Voorhees Vainly struggles Against tha
Inevitable.
Washington, Ost. 13. —Voorhees laid
to the Associated Press this morning,
be would at ti o'clock this evening again
ask the senate to continue in session
during tile nignt, and keep it up till a
vote wae raacbed. He did not know
whether he could hold a quorum, bnt it
wonld not b* his fault if one failed.
A movement was on foot in opposition
to Voorhees'proposition to ask for night
sessions, to procure an adjournment at
6:30 till Monday, but without avail.
VEST OI'I'ERS AN AMENDMENT.
When the eenate met today Vest gave
notice of an amendment in the nature
of a substitute for tbe repeal bill. After
repealing the purchasing clanes of the
Sherman act it authorizes the issue of
coin certificates for uncoined bullion
consisting of seiguiorage on silver here
after purchased. It provides for tbe
coinage of American eilver deposited by
others at the rate of $3,000,000 per
month up to $800,000,000, this coinage
to be fairly proportioned among the
silver producing states and territories.
Holders of standard silver dollars «nay
have them exchanged for certificates.
Authority is fjiven the secretary of the
treasury to refuse payment in gold on
any obligation of the United States
when he is satisfied the gold is wanted
for exportation. A j )iut committee of
the two houses is to examine into the
financial and monetary condition of the
irovernmeut aud the people of the
United States. The 10 per cent tax on
state bank circulation is to be removed.
THE UNION PACTIIO RECEIVERSHIP.
MauJei..of Nebraska ottered a reso
lution tbat the committee on Pacific
railroads be itit-tiucted to inquire into
the receivership of the Union Pacific
railroad und what steps wera necessary
to protect tbe lnteieat of aud secure the
indebtedness to the United States gov
ernment.
Brice, chairman of the committee on
Pacific railroads, pointed out the neces
sity of receivers' certificates not being is
sued and have preference over govern
ment lienß on the property, supple
mental to the appropriations required to
employ counsel in the matter.
Consideration of the resolution was
postponed and tbe Bilver repeal bill
taken up.
STEWART BKSCMES HIS SPEECH.
Stewart resumed his speech where he
left ofT at 1 o'clock this morning, continu
ing until 8 o'clock, wben he was suc
ceeded by Peffer. The galleries at this
time were practically deserted.
CLEVELAND KBMAINS FIRM.
The president remains tirm for uncon
ditional repeal, and Voorhees will holt)
out as long as he can keep a quorum.
The failure of the 38 hour session rather
discouraged tbe repeal senators. Mean
while tbe efforts of the compromisers go
on the basis of the Harris amendment,
but there is a wide difference of opinion
as to whether a bond provision should
be added.
A DEMOCRATIC COMPROMISE.
The Democratic senators have been
holding conferences all day aud have, it
is understood upon good authority, al
most agreed upon a compromise. The
agieemsnr. continues the Sherman act
in effect 18 months and provides for a
limited bond issue. Some silver Demo
crats and all the silver Republicans are
making a vigorous protest agains! this
adjustment, and may be able to have it
changed.
A LONG WRANGLE.
At 11:3Q p. m. a long wrangle was pre
cipitated by the refusal of Dubois to vote
to make a quorum, on the plea that bis
duty to his constituents could be best
served by remaining silent.
