Span of Bridge Over Barren fL. -T tj r n XMVCl ANCctl JDUWUIlg UIGC1I Gives Away and Handicaps Traffic. Due io a span of the L. & N. rail-, road bridge over Barren River near Bowling Green, giving away on last Tuesday afternoon, the Louisville and Nashville through freight and passcn gen Southbound trains have been de toured over the L. H. & St. L. rail road for a week. The span collapsed after a wheel on the tender of the engine of a north bound freight broke. The engine got across safely but when the first freight car struck the derail it crashed through the bridge and five or six other cars followed it. There were no accidents or death as a result of the wreck. But on Wed nesday afterwards, Daniel Cornwell, a carpenter, standing nearby was kill ed by flying metal which struck him when the bridge was being dynami ted. Another man was seriously in jured at the same time and died later as a result of accidents. The wreck is said to have dealt traffic one of the most serious blows it has had in several decades over the L. & N. line. With the L. & N. freight and pas senger trains and those of the L. H. & St. L. R. R. too, there have been between thirty and forty trains pass ing through Cloverport in the past week. The L. St. N. freight trains are made up of twenty-five to thirty cars. Despatchcr M. M. Denton of the local telegraph office at the. shops has received as many as twenty train orders in eight hours in the last six days. COOK WITHDRAWS FROM RACE AS REPRESENTATIVE. On the advice of some of the leaders of the Republican party in this Legis lative district I have decided not to be a candidate for the office of Repre sentative from this district. Since my announcement I have met with hearty support from many Republicans in both this and Breckinridge county It is needless for me to say that I ap preciate this support from my friends more than I can express. But to make the race as things now stand could only result in endangering Republican Success in the district this fall and as success of the party is stronger in me than my personal ambition. I have decided to withdraw and leave the field clear, so that there will be no party fight in the primary, thus insur- ing the election of a Republican from tI,ls district. Again extending my sin- cere thanks to my many friends who "avc KVC ",e assurance of their sup- I'ort 'or tnc 0"'ce. ' a,n respectfully, JOHN COOK.
