1 One of the iriost disastrous railroad
wrecks known in the annuls of this
country occurred August 27, about 2
o'clock a; in1., at Boston bridge, two
miles west of Statesville, ,on the
4 Western North Carolina "railroad.
Passenger train No. 9, known as' the
fast mail-, which was made up at Sal
isbury, and due at Morristown 10:07
a; m., pulled out'on time, 1 a. m.,
loaded with passengers. It was com
posed of a baggage and mail car, sec
pnd and first-class coaches, ' Pullman
sleeper and Superintendent Bridge's
private Car "Daisy." Two miles
West of Statesville . is a high stone
bridge over Third Creek. The bridge
was built years ago of solid masonry.
It Is ninety feet high and is archeil
for the' passage 'of water ' beneath.
If is as safe as bridge could be, in fact
a track on solid ground could be
made no safer. Trains therefore did
not slacken speed upon approaching
it.' The fated train was running at
the rate of forty miles an hour when
Ihe pilot engine threw a shadow over
its approach. In the center of the
bridge there was a gap in the gleam
ing line of rails. The engine struck
the gap', gave a great bound, and fell
down into space. Along with it went
every car in the train one after the
other with their human loads, crash
ing upon the hard ground ninety feet
helow. ' ' '
The engine struck ground first, then
upon it came obe car F.fter another
with horrible crashes;' horrible
crunches. Every car was smashed
into kindling wood, and the wreck
age was heaped in a confused and
disordered neaped up pile: Down
