ACCIDENTS
The accident in the New York Cen
tral railroad tunnel, last Wednesday, in
which 15 persons were killed and twice
that number injured, is the more re
markable because of the number pre
cautions taken to prevent it. When
*he leading train was stopped by signals
it set automatic blocks against the train
following, a Hagman was sent back, a
danger light exhibited and a warning
torpedo placed upon tbe track. Yet in
spite of all these efforts the second train
dashed into the other, causing death
anil injury, and what are described as
the most harrowing scenes at any rail
road wreck of recent years. The offici
als of the company place the blame
upon the engineer of the second train
who, with liis fireman, has been arrest
ed:
Word came to Butler yesterday of
Prof. Sam Hamilton of Allegheny coun
ty being run over by a train, and hav
ing both legs cut off
Alfred Jenkins of Middlesex twp.
had his nose cut by falling on a corn
stalk, last week.
