ANOTHER RAILROAD HORROR.
two Trttlua Coma* on ih« Baltimore *
Ohio.
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.
