front of the court house door tile
magnificent Hotch Latham which
has been closed since last Decem
It was sold last winter bringing
10000 being bought in by the
Bank of Hopkinsville and others
This time the right of rederaptioa
was bought by Jno C Latham for
5500 making the total price
Mr Latham was the principal
owner of the hotel which cost
originally with its furnishings 105
000 It is by long odds the finest
hotel in the State and was the pride
of the city until it was closed
It was carrying a heavy interest
debt and failed to makeexpenscs on
that account
At the time it closed it was doing
nicely under Mr W A Wilgus
management and paying its expen
ses but for its back debts
What Mr Lathanfs intentions
are in regard to the hotel- are not
known He will probably arrange
to re open it at once
Is the Chalybeate Springs Hotel

risoa creek bridge seven miles east
6i this city yesterday at 320
Vclock A regular freight train
gng west loaded with coal met a
train carrying empty coal cars go
ing cast on the long trestle over the
creek Both were going at full
jSped Engineer Jake Thompson
who was on the train going east
was killed He was thrown off the
trestle and crushed to death be
nelh a caf of coal Only one hand
coiiid be seen when a search for
him was made James Scott of
Madisonville Ky who was stenl
ing a ride was fatally injured his
lungs being ruptured and other
wise seriously injured Henry
Reeves fireman was painfully in
jured John Bryant brakeman
was hurt Conductor Harry Wil
stach Engineer A J Farlej and
R L Moore fireman were also
painfully injured All except En
gineer Thompson who was killed
outright were injured by jumping
from the train
Garrison creek bridge is between
two steep grades and both trains
were running at the rate of forty
miles per hour The train going
west was obeying orders and was
on time The other train should
have stopped at Clarks Station
one quarter of a mile west of where
the accident occurred
Both engines are a total wreck
Twenty nine empty cars and five
loaded cars were plunged off the
trestle in a mass andT are a total
wreck This makes about half a
dozen terrible wrecks at the Garri
son creek bridge and the place is
regarded with superstition by rail

Thompson thought he was meeting
the passenger train and remained
on his engine with the hope of sav
ing many lives
