Tiffin, Ohio, Jan. 4.—The fast train on the Baltimore * Ohio Railway, which left New York about l» o'clock yesterday for Chicago with live coaches ami four sleepers, all well filled with passengers, collided with an eastern-bound freight train seven miles east of this city about 4 o'clock this morning. The fast train was about fifty minutes late and was running at the rate of sixty miles an hour. Passing Republic, a small station, like a Hash, they rushed along to the curve one mile west of that town when suddenly the engineer saw a freight train under full headway within 100 yards 9* him* lie *t once applied tt»« brake* and, reversed his engine, but it did no good, and the next instant the crash came. The attest of the collision can be better imagiffed tlmn described. The engines of the two trains reared into the air like a pair of enraged living monsters, and then settled down up on the track, driven into each other until their cylinders touched. The force of the impact jammed the baggage cars into the tender of the fast train, the express car into the baggage car, and the smoker Into the ex press car. In less than five minutes from the moment of the collision, and before any or ganized effort at a rescue could be made, the fire from the overturned stoves commu nicated to tiie \vo<Kiwork and the flames leaped high in the air, their roar mingling with the cries of anguish of the imprisoned victims, to whom death in its most terrible form was a horrid presence. The train men and uninjured passengers were power less and they could do nothing to rescue the sufferers. - —— C. P. Bradley, of Washington, I). C., was found hanging from a window of the smoker, but his legs were fast and he could not be moved. There he remained until he was burned to death, and his charred re mains fell to the ground a black and shape less mass. He was conscious, and gave his address to the bystanders, and also said that he was an officer of the Knights of La bor organization. He gave his watch and other variables that he could get from his pockets, to Conductor Fletcher of the freight train. Joseph Pcistelthwaite, aged 57 years, and his Mins. Spencer, aged 18, and Henry, aged 11. were sitting in the same seat in the smoker, and their charred remains were found in the ruins of the cars. M. 11. Parks, whose address could not lie learned, was also wedged in the wreck and burned to death, after handing his money, letters and cards to one of the railroad em ployes. His body was also consumed as wer those of several others, whose names are not known ami jierhaps never will be. When the reporter reached the scene of the holocaust at 1 o’clock to-day. the ruins of the baggage car, express car and smoker and the coach were still burning and scores of hands were endeavoring to clear the track. Here and there could be seen sheets of blood and pieces of half burned and frozen human flesh, and the workmen were still finding portions of bodies in the bunting wreck. The uiail.express and bag gage were burned, including large sums of money. The scene at Chamberlain's establishment w’as one calculated to make the stoutest hearts quail. Nine shapeless trunks of hu man beings were stretched out in a row.like so many charred logs. There were Mr.Pos telthwaitc and his two sous, side by side, and seven others, none of whom could be recognized, and near them was a mass of flesh ami bones that may have been ]iarts of the Indies of a duztffi different people. The Commercial (Gazette’s Tiffin. Ohio, special reports a diversity of opinion re garding the real cause of the accident. All reports agree that there was carelessness on the part of the railroad employes, but whether the blame should attach to the freight or passenger crew, is a matter of conjecture. A thorough investigation will be made. The Coroner has taken charge of the dead. The Commercial's correspondent gives seven as the number who were killed, and says that out of fifteen passengers in the smoker, but tine escaped.
